  1. I'd start off using layers on top about an inch wide and around 4-5 inches long and put the vet tape over it. You can go much wider if it's more comfortable. This might help: https://www.range365.com/diy-rifle-comb-riser-pad-on-cheap/
  2. I had both the B22 and Mark II FV-SR rifles and ran into the same issue when shooting them in NRL22 competition. The solution for me was to build up a cheek riser out of closed-cell camp pad and vet tape. I covered the top with a small piece of adhesive-backed felt. Bonus for using the felt is it's more comfortable and easy to replace if it gets dirty or (in my case) covered in sweat. It took a little experimentation to get the fit exactly right, but was well worth it for the end result.
  3. There are a lot of 10/22 owners that have built their own left-handed versions from available receivers. Example: https://www.tacticalinc.com/catalog/category/606/1943
  4. They are around here. The oldest hippy commune in the USA is right up the road: https://thefarmcommunity.com/ While the hippie population is only a fraction of what it was in the 70s, the local Amish community has flurished.
  5. I used to think the same way as you. I didn't want to rely on any electronics... especially on a daily carry. Just wait until you need reading glasses and your front site is nothing but a big blur (or multiple blurs). You'll change your tune about dot sights.

    The Keltec P32 is 8.07 ounces empty and 10.25 ounces with 7+1 of Fiocchi 32 ACP 73 grain FMJ. I normally carry it (only around the house) with 5+1 putting the weight at 9.7 ounces. Add the SM2 Sticky holster and it totals 10.63 ounces.
  7. No problems whatsoever with 10, 15, 17, and 33 round Glock factory mags.
  8. I solved this by always wearing my gun belt and leather holster when not in the house... and normally wearing it in the house too.
  9. On my 9mm, I replaced the mag release with one that comes out further to make it easier to drop the mag. Initially I had an Athlon 1-4x24 scope mounted as my eyesight doesn't do well with open sights anymore, but didn't like the way it handled. So I replaced the sights with a rail and added a Holosun 507C-GR gen 2 green dot sight. Now it's quick and easy to get on target. Lastly, a lightweight Magpul bipod was added for longer shots.
  10. I bought this dual carrier, assembled it, put it on my Hundai Tuscon, loaded 1 e-bike, and decided it's way too much weight for the Tuscon. I paid $294.99 plus TN tax totaling $323.75 to the door. If anyone wants to pick it up here in Summertown, I'll sell it for $200 (firm). While I'm not moving that beast to take photos, you can see the carrier at: https://www.titanramps.com/carriers/titan-carriers/dual-motorcycle-and-dirtbike-carrier-1000-lb-capacity-w-ramp-332201.html
  11. I've bought a lot of scopes from CameraLand. Great company to do business with and has provided some very good pricing on the Athlon Midas TAC scopes.
  12. I don't worry about competing in NRL22, I just try to get better and not to suck on any course of fire. If it shoots like mine, the B14R is one of the best 22LR rifles you can reasonably buy. Want to make it a laser, drop a TriggerTech Diamond trigger in it set around 3 to 4 ounces: https://triggertech.com/collections/bolt-action/products/diamond
  13. Welcome to the forums Melissa. A friend of mine moved from here in Southern Middle TN to Florida when he retired a few years ago. He sent me this link last yesterday:
