    Glock 48?

    I switched from the Shield to the 43x.

    Glock 48?

    Alternatively, she can shoot a 43x if you have an easier time finding one of those. The frame of the 43x is the same as the 48. Only difference between the two is slide length. The 48 will have a little longer slide and I’d imagine slightly less snapieness.

    Guns N More In Smyrna

    Well at least this gives me some finality to my issue with Guns N More. I "won" their Logo Contest they held in the classifieds a year or two ago. Supposed to have received a stripped lower and a 22lr rifle for the winning logo. They actually decided to pick 2 of the logos I sent. One for their lower and another for general merchandise and letterheads I believe. Communication was pretty decent for a while. They kept telling me they were waiting for approval to manufacture and then they just fell off the deep end. Sure sucks. At least I don't have to worry any longer about them using my intellectual property since they are out of business.
  4. Throwing this out there....I have Aimpoints, EoTech's, Leupolds, Trijicons.....The Sig Romeo 5 has really impessed me. I have an astigmatism, so I always see the "starburst" but for whatever reason, the Romeo 5 I see the clearest of them all. It also includes 2 mounts, and a lifetime guarantee...they can be had for around $120ish. I've hard great things about the Primary Arms so they are worth a look as well.
  5. Sign of the times unfortunately......it was recently (prior to the Florida shooting and trump talking about an AWB) those lowers were $29.99 limit 5! Now they show $39.99 limit 1.

    ad closed Sold

    Well dang if I didn't just buy a Badlands pack earlier in the season! Nice pack, but it was a lot more than $75. I'd imagine this should sell soon. It should.

    Gun season opens in the morning

    I haven't posted much because my hunts have been fairly uneventful. I also haven't been able to get out as much as I usually do because I have to work weekends through deer season this year!! Anyways, I made it out there today and it was the most I've ever hunted in a single day ever! With the exception of only 2 hrs for a lunch and potty break...I hunted 30 mins before sunrise to 30 mins after sunset! So I certainly did my part. The deer didn't do theirs....there was a lot of rutting activity in the morning, saw some nice bucks, but I was doe hunting, and a doe never presented a shot. Later on that evening, I only saw a spike. Where have all the doe gone?!?! We have also seen an unprecedented amount of buttons and spikes this year. Not sure whats up with that. I guess i'm glad we have young bucks that will become old bucks, but I want a few doe!

    Anyone using the MAGPUL HUNTER Stock?

    I have one for my 700 SPS Tactical 308. I really like it. The ability to adjust LOP and the cheek comb height (i had to order the higher comb kit) make it really great to fit the rifle to you. I think its probably the better value in stocks out there for what you get. I bought this really thin foam pad from hobby lobby that sticks on to stuff. I cut it to fit and attached it to the cheek comb, really made a big difference in comfort. I also use the detachable mag.

    2017 Deer Season Thread

    Ruger! Man! Excellent work. That was way better than I was expecting. Haha. Seriously, the production value and content I thought was really good. So, can't wait to see more and see you get a deer down too! Good job man. As for me and my hunting this year....since I'm being made to work weekens I won't be able to get out as much as I normally would. I have hunted twice so far. We cleared out an area underneath a powerline on our property. It's about 300-350 yards in length total. I saw 3 small doe at 200 yards and that's been it! Also had some neirbors dogs run down my section of the powerline too. That wasn't fun. :-( i also found a spot on our property that looked very "deerish" so I put up a game camera and haven't told anybody. :-) Turns out there was evidence of an old deer stand right where I set my camera up. So may be a pretty good spot. We shall see!

    2017 Deer Season Thread

    I seem to have been able to avoid most the ticks and chiggers, its the freakin wasps and bees that cause me grief up in the stand! There always seems to be some bug that looks like a something out of the movie Alien that likes to hover in your vicinity sounding like a Huey helicopter. Hate those things.

    Pure genius - way to give a dog a bath

    Unfortunately I don't think my Great Dane will fall for this. He HATES baths, and a 150lb dog that thinks he's about to die if he gets a bath is not fun to deal with. The goober loves swimming. I don't get it.

    .410 for Turkey

    Its not a good idea. Turkeys are tough birds and the head/neck is very small target. You'll want a massive amount of lead headed his way to increase your odds of an ethical kill. If you use a .410, you will drastically cut your effective range and risk wounding the bird. 20 gauge can be used effectively but again, you'll limit your range. 12 gauge is what most people use and for good reason. There are plenty of cheap 12 gauges out there though.

    2017 Deer Season Thread

    Slappy, excellent thread as always! I look forward to your posts and unparalleled wisdom! Unfortunately I will not be sitting in a stand opening morning. I have to work and it's also my wife's birthday but I'll try to get out there with the bow next week!
