  1. OK, copying another post by Terry, but I ordered myself a Vortex Spitfire 3X this morning, for Christmas. It's supposed to be here by the 24th. My wife and I always just pick what we want and the kids chip in $. I have a Strikefire II that I really like but I need just a little more magnification and precision to pop something crow-sized at 150 yards. We'll see! This will go on my PSA kit that I'll be assembling Christmas day.

  2. Got the go ahead from the war dept. and just ordered my Christmas present from Buds: The suppressor is just for show in the picture but it is a threaded barrel. Nice thing is that the magazines for my CZ 452 fit this one too. Just waiting for it to arrive. Terry

  3. I was recently adopted by a Bantam hen. I don't have any chickens, and I don't know anything about keeping chickens, but she seems happy hanging out with the horses and picking around in the barn. I have a hunch that she came from the neighbor's up the road, but I have no idea why she chose my place for a new residence, and no idea how long she'll stick around. What I do know, is that she's not aggressive, and she's not noisy, so she's welcome to stay as long as she wants.

  4. God bless you Molineaux! Seems every now and then you have a derogatory adjective you throw my way. So here's the deal. I own both an Aimpoint T1 with a 2 moa dot and a TRS-25 with the 3 moa dot. Both have been shot on my M1A Socom 16 which is a 16" semi-auto .308 Winchester M14 style rifle. They both do very well on this rifle and keep zero. Right now I have the Aimpoint T1 set on an American Defense mount. (American Defense is one of this Forums sponsors, excellent products.) So it is set up to cowitness on my AR's. While both do the job intended, the T1 does it better. Better selection of dot intensity. Better battery life. And most of all better clarity TRS-25 Aimpoint T1 So you get what you pay for. And one other thing, I did not pay $800 for my Aimpoint. Got it on sale from a reputable Aimpoint dealer for $465 at the time. Thanks again and keep up the good work. Glenn

  9. Celebrating our 45 anniversary, so yes I have been drinking. A nice Merlot/Cab blend with a take out dinner from one our newest French restaurants! My wife had her hip replaced on Tuesday so, we weren’t going anywhere. I talked with the Chef, told him of our predicament, and he graciously put together a take-out for us. Absolutely fantastic meal but with so-so table service; I refused to put on French waitress garb, so she had to put up with me.... I don’t think she minded the dinner at home. A house fully decked out for Christmas, our Lab at her feet keeping her warm, and my cheery face. After 45 years she still loves me, even with all my BRD symptoms!

  10. Still playing with the loads. Actually I'm fairly satisfied with the results, I think that all the flyers would tighten up if I used a sled instead of a bipod. After working up loads of varying charges and seating I worked it down to 3 loads. I liked the Alliant Reloader 7 as it pretty much fills the case with little or no compression. Nosler Varmegeddon B/tip, CCI LR primer, Winchester brass. Had some interesting results with Hornady SPs which I'll mess with next. My chrony was acting up so I have no numbers yet. Big Thx to everyone!

  11. I grew up having a long supply of food around as we could get snowed in for a while. We hunted for most of our meat and had a freezer full. I usually have a years worth of meat in the freezer but have slacked off in recent years. I only have enough canned goods for a month but we don't live out in the sticks anymore. I figure if crap hits the fan I'll shoot my way into someone's stash Now I did stock up on meat today for the coming week......16# brisket, 4 lb prime rib roast, 5# hamburger, 2 whole fresh crab, loaf of french bread, and some bones for the dogs cuz they ain't touching that prime rib or my brisket!

  12. Maybe... then he would use the profits to buy 8 new firearms... He has it all figured out. GOOD on him! I wouldnt mind "selling" a couple of my unused firearms, the ones without family sentiments, for one new, high quality firearm that I would use. Its always a trade off. My personality cant sell shat, not a gun, sleeping bag or dog collar... huge flaw in my life. I have NO PROBLEM just giving things away to people who I know will appreciate the gift, but something in my DNA just wont let me sell anything. No wonder I am stacked to the rafters with things I will never use. Wish I could find a way to get over my hoarding gene. I feel guilty selling anything, but have no remorse giving things away for free.

  13. err............the chickens and guinea hen were over on the back deck this afternoon for a snack...they brought their retarded buddy with them. This one decided it did not want to live with the flock of turkeys in the area and adopted the neighbors ducks, chickens, and guineas as it's new buddies. The guineas push it around while the chickens don't care. I can get within ten feet of it before it walks away.....silly critter...

  14. Glenn, I believe the OP is referring to optics such as the M4, M4S, and M5. And to that, I say this; you made a mention of the majority of people never seeing combat. That's true. But, none of us knows that that will always hold true. For example, I personally prefer to typically outfit my firearms with what I feel is the best gear I can get. Whether or not it sees any 'combat', or use as a self-defense/home defense firearm is irrelevant. All I care about is knowing that if it had to be used as such for any reason, then at least I know I won't have limited myself (and yes, it is limiting oneself) by choosing subpar equipment which could fail when it's needed most. Until I see a TRS-25 subjected to the same amount of abuse, and still power on, let alone hold a zero, I'll stick with those that can. And just for the record, the 'house fire' optic is their PRO. Aimpoint's 'budget' optic. Honestly, even with that being said, while I chose an Aimpoint for my go-to AR awhile back, I've really been turned onto Trijicon ACOG's. Dual illumination, caliber specific holdovers built into the reticle, 3.5x magnification is helpful at range and isn't too much that it can't be used up close in a pinch, but paired with an auto adjust LED RMR anyways for use as a back up sight.. you never have to touch it. Was it worth the ~$1,500.00+? I believe it is. Would that make me a fool for willing to spend that amount for something I trust my life to? Some might think so, but I would disagree. Obviously. They've proven themselves on combat rifles overseas just like Aimpoints have. The one time I took it to a 500M range, the reticle made it stupidly easy to wear out the furthest target. But, I guess this is getting off on a different vein. My point is, the most expensive things don't always equal the best. But, sometimes they do. If you wanna send over your Bushnell, I'll be happy to subject it to some torture. Maybe I'll toss it on the .50, and see if it'll hold up to the recoil to start.

  15. Thank you. I appreciate it. Having a critter in your life is like a double edged sword. They give you unconditional love. And you them, like children, except it is likely you will outlive them and have to deal with the loss. It is a tough sacrifice but well worth the effort. I have no doubt I will do it again. Been looking at dogs recently, maybe now hold off a while, but still strong enough to let another soul into my life.

  17. The time is very near. She is very quiet, just staring into space, very shallow breathing. No longer think she has any pain, maybe they pill I gave her late last night worked itself into her system. So sad. At least no obvious pain, that is what would make it difficult. Checking on her every half hour while I am doing things around the house, when I am sitting I go up and spend the time with her. Dont even know if she knows I am there, but I feel better knowing I am there for her. I dont think pills will work any longer, she is jut too weak. At least its a cold, ugly, rainy day outside... I feel better being inside looking after her. Thanks for the thoughts and ideas.

  30. I now have a 380 magazine that will hold 5 32 S&W Long cartridges. It will let me run them through the pistol by hand if I can keep the magazine up tight where it belongs. I'll go to the desert tomorrow AM and put some rounds in the dirt, ala Dirt Shooter!! It may take cutting the notch to really test properly. My initial magazine will look like a 4th grader did it. If this runs I'll get some more and let some one use a milling machine so they will look pretty. Greg
