  1. It may not be legal for competition. Since it is a firearm and does not meet the legal definition of a shotgun it may mot be allowed for 3 gun. I have several friends that shoot IDPA at Strategic Edge, after I got my AR pistol running good I looked into shooting it. It was not allowed since it did not have a 16 inch barrel. So you would need to check the rule book and with the people running the particular match to see what they allow.
  2. In November 2017 I shattered my right wrist. I Glockhad to have a titanium plate and 8 screws put in to hold it together . Then in March of 2018 the easy came out. It was the only pistol I could shoot. Unfortunately I did so much damage to my wrist I will never be able to take more recoil than the 380 ez right handed. I work at the Franklin range and I have sold a bunch of them. I still carry it when I want a thin lightweight option. They are a good tool for the design parameters. But I wanted to have more power so I started working hard and taught myself to shoot pistols left handed. I scored 482 out of 500 the first Glock match I shoot left handed. So now I shoot pistols left handed. Been difficult overcoming 30 plus years of muscle memory.
  3. I only carry factory ammo for defensive use. I will look into Hornady critical duty.
  4. I built an AR pistol in 45 acp with an 8.5 inch barrel. I am trying to decide between carrying fmj in it or jhp. My reasoning is that when we close the gunstore and leave late at night if spmeone tries to rob the store I may have to shoot through a windshield or car door. For that fmj would be preferable. However if the shot requires expansion not penetration jhp are better. What say you?
  5. They didn't have it and the guy I dpoke to couldn't find it to order in the system.
  6. Thanks I will keep looking and keep you in mind
  7. Does anyone in the Nashville, Franklin, or Spring Hill have a .578x28 or 37/64x28 tap I could burrow fir a day or two. I built an AR pistol and need to rethread my flashcan.
  8. I wonder if respectful posts on their Facebook page could make a change?
  9. they both have a gun buster next to the door. Not 2nd amendment friendly
  10. Thanks got 3 boxes. Going to take it down tonight to clean and oil it. Get it ready to shoot Tuesday.
  11. no tracers in 30-06 I used to have some in 7.62x51 but can't locate them anymore
  12. Does anyone know where to buy some in middle TN? I want to shoot my dad's Garand on the Fourth of July.
  13. Does anyone know if either show is worth gping to? I am looking for a CZ 527 in 7.62x39
  14. My 12 bore gun works. It took some filing and muzzle work I have it shooting a nice group with Lyman 525 grain slugs.

I am roll crimping them with an antique roll crimper I won on Ebay. [image]http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk271/zgunbear/slug%20target.jpg[/image] Here is a family portrait of both my doubles. 45-70 Baikal on the bottom and my Thumper on top. I am thinking about having the rib engraved .722 Smooth Bore Express. [image]http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk271/zgunbear/20160907_172608.jpg[/image]
  15. I am getting ready to order some 405 grain bullets to use in reloading my 45-70. The company I order from offers powder coated at the same price as regular cast lead. Are there advantages to usinf the powdet coated in a double rifle?
  16. Got the rear sight replaced. Shot my old slug reloads at 50 yards. It will hold minute of pig. The most interesting thing is that it will shoot a good pattern at 25 yards. Aimed at clays sitting on the berm and broke them with both barrels. The shotpattern was centered on the pount of aim. It will also shot Fiocchi slugs to POA. However they lead the bores very quickly. I received the mold I ordered so soon will be castong and loading some .680 lead balls.
  17. I had never seen the IMI Timberwolf before. interesting little gun
  18. not too bad the .690 were  very similar to my 45-70 double recoil wise. It will get your attention though
  19. Thanks. I thought I has set them right.
  20. Can someone help me fix the image tags?
  21. I am converting a double 12 Gauge into a slug /round ball gun The donor gun with 30 inch barrels [url=http://s282.photobucket.com/user/zgunbear/media/20160421_203059.jpg.html][image]http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk271/zgunbear/20160421_203059.jpg[/image][/url] Sight Bases installed [url=http://s282.photobucket.com/user/zgunbear/media/20160423_180330.jpg.html][image]http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk271/zgunbear/20160423_180330.jpg[/image][/url] Close up of rear sight base [url=http://s282.photobucket.com/user/zgunbear/media/edited_1461897340867.jpg.html][image]http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk271/zgunbear/edited_1461897340867.jpg[/image][/url] Completed Gun? [url=http://s282.photobucket.com/user/zgunbear/media/20160501_210252.jpg.html][image]http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk271/zgunbear/20160501_210252.jpg[/image][/url] First Target [url=http://s282.photobucket.com/user/zgunbear/media/target.jpg.html][image]http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk271/zgunbear/target.jpg[/image][/url] I opened the crimp on some bulk Federal 1 1/8 game loads I put some of the Lyman 525 grain slugs in some and some .690 round balls in a few. The Lyman slugs grouped right and left but 3 inches separating the two groups. The .690 round balls stacked with the holes touching at 25 yards. I could shoot more because the rear sight detent could not handle the recoil. The rear sight slide decided it wanted to move forward under recoil.   I think it shows potential just have to get a working rear sight and do load development.
  22. Does anyone have a 6-48 tap I can borrow tomorrow and use at Charlie Haffner's range? I thought I had one but all I have is 6-32
  23. I love it when shooters pick up their brass. That way I don't have to do it. You paid for you shoot it you should take it home if you want it. I work Sundays at Charlie Haffner's range and we spent a good chunk of time picking up brass after people have left the range.
  24. I will be working at Charlie Hafner's on Sunday Afternoon if anyone wants to come burn powder
  25. My dream caliber and rifle. There is something about a double rifle. Anytime I shoot mine at the range always have people asking about it.
