  1. M1a or ar10

    Unless 7.62 is a requirement, a 6.5 Grendel might be worth considering.
  2. I once ran a remote wireless camera off of a 12VDC marine battery with solar panels tending the battery. It was a cheap, crappy camera but it worked fine.
  3. FN509

    Update Found a 509 at a different store yesterday. Felt really nice in hand. I liked the size, frame, everything about it was nice. Then, with the clerk's permission, I snapped it. I didn't like the trigger. Then I looked at another pistol that I've been reading about. A Sig P320 with full length slide on a compact frame. The modular build style is what drew me to the gun. (Lego's for adults) And then, again with permission, I snapped it. Wow, I've never felt a trigger like that on a plastic gun before. Not as good as my 1911, but nice indeed compared to other plastic guns I've tried. Brought the Sig home. I wanna get a full size frame for it. Hope to get a chance to shoot it some later today. Thanks for the input folks. ETA price on the 509 was $529.00.

    I don't really know what the street price is gonna be yet. Shop down the street from where my Son lives, (Co Springs), is selling them for $569. Gunbroker has several listings for a bit less. Talking to my LGS guy yesterday. Didn't ask him how much it would be, just told him what I'd pay difference to trade my PC Shield. We agreed on a trade figure, but I haven't committed just yet. Edit = Agreeing on a trade figure and not doing the deal can sometimes be bad manners. But he's a good friend and doesn't have one in stock yet anyway.

    Anyone here have any experience with one yet?
  6. 9mm 1911

    I traded for the Ruger last week. 100 rounds thru it so far. Really nice to shoot.

  8. Sight solution for Long and short range

    I have this one and bought it for specifically for 200 yards or less = https://www.amazon.com/Vortex-Crossfire-1-4x24mm-Riflescope-CF2-31037/dp/B00HYRGODO/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1472902334&sr=8-3&keywords=vortex+crossfire+2+illuminated Another one here that's maybe a bit closer to what you've described = https://www.amazon.com/Vortex-Optics-Strike-AR-BDC-Reticle/dp/B00S2P2KKS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1472902579&sr=8-1&keywords=vortex+strike+eagle+illuminated YMMV .... My eyes aren't what they used to be. Heck I bought a 20x for 400+ yard shooting!
