Sent my old GSI bullet feeder in for an upgrade. A few things I had issue with, should be corrected in this newer version.
Built a simple little combo for a cheap weapon light. I hate how these things go for 100$ and up, when the parts are worth 20$.
Using the best stuff China has to offer, I was able to put together a neat combo..
A good start to being able to ID these. Personally I think we should just dump the commercial and keep the milspec, just to reduce all the confusion, but here we sit..
Got a chance to head out to the range with some friends to try out some new stuff, mainly 6 new steel plates I picked up. Did a bunch of 300 yard stuff with small plates, and it was a BLAST. Some great gopro footage coming soon. Thought I’d be silly and film this one though…. Picking up the brass, before it hits the ground..
Went shooting. Loaded 5 rounds for a 100 yard shot. Pulled the trigger one time. Dropped the mag and put the gun away. It just wasn’t going to get better than this. 308 FTW
With this latest mail-in complete, I’ll be certified in:
Certified Home Firearm Safety
Range Safety Officer
Chief Range Safety Officer
Metallic Cartridge Reloading Instructor
Shotgun shell Reloading Instructor
Just a few classes left to complete the civilian list of certs.
After all these years with a rinky dinky Texan press, I finally upgraded to a Mech Jr press only to decide that wasn’t enuf. Today I stumbled across a deal and came home with a Dillon SL900 12 gauge reloading press. WOW! what a machine, its the rough equivalent of my Super1050, but for shotgun shells. Once tuned up, this thing will be able to make them faster than I could shoot them.
Guess this means the 870 and I will need to spend some time together.
Anyone that knows me knows I’m a giant fan of 45acp, as well as AR15 style rifles. For years I thought a fantastic product would be the marrying of the two things, AR15 + 45ACP = AR45!. Several people have made them, with various success, but none ever really to my liking.
Spending just about the same amount as a “normal AR, these days”, I’ll have a fantastic pistol caliber rifle that uses 30 round grease gun magazines.
