  1. AR 15 or 10? My Fiancé bought me the Timney Calvin Elite single stage a few months back. 1.5 lbs and glass rod break with 0 takeup . BUT $269.00
  2. To all Those whom have replied to this thread, Thank you from the depths of my soul. I put off making this post for several months. For obvious reasons. There are times that I simply fall apart at the seams. And there are times that I take solace In knowing they are somewhere safe now. Together. Ashton's mom was his stone. His losing her at 17 must have hurt like my losing him. But every day i get up and go about life as it comes. I have a fiancé who has been there to keep me put together most days. I have faith that GOD will see me through. As one member stated, I must be a strong fellow to endure these events. But what other choice is there? My GOD never meant us to wither and die. The Why's will always creep into my mind. But I don't wallow in self pity as this does no one any good. One moment at a time. "That which does not kill you, only makes you stronger" as someone said. But I'm a bit tired of the workout LOL. Hold your children tight, love them and raise the right. For one day they may be gone. Either left behind on earth, or ascend to Heaven without you.
  3. I haven't Made a post since about 2018 or so. And this may run Long. As many senior members may recall, My Son, Ashton, competed in International Air Rifle and Smalbore. In Many trips over thousands of miles in competition, Training, and Range Practices, we made great strides towards becoming a college athlete. In November 2018, we suddenly lost his Mother. She developed a pulmonary embolism and passed in surgery. This event turned his mind inside out. He couldn't grieve and everything escalated into anger. I tried for months to get him to go to counseling or get help with his emotions and grief. Being the person he was at 17, he refused to admit he needed help. Both him and I couldn't even have a conversation without rage and anger showing up. I gave him space as much as I could, to avoid the fights. He saw the space as abandonment. After I called in Crisis Intervention after one of his rage and destruction fits, He said I betrayed him. I only wanted him to grieve and get help. After one of his rage events which he destroyed his room, I asked him to move out of the house. He had a good job, started to make friends, even with trust issues, and a year later things started to get a little better between us. At least he didn't scream and cuss me so much. He would come over and work on his car at the house and I would hang out and listen to his plans for the car, (POS BMW with major reliability flaws). Every time it would break down or have issues on his way home from work, usually at 2am, he would call me and yell at me. Like It was my fault he had to drive this POS. His older sister, wanting to help him, went and helped him finance a new motorcycle in November 2020. After only 4 days, He was killed in a crash coming home from work at 2am. No witnesses, and no way to tell why he laid it down, his head hit a traffic control curbing killing him. I have struggled for the past 6 months to make sense of this. I miss him dearly. Many member here helped us raise the money for his first Junior Olympic Trip, and this forum helped him reach one of his life's dreams. Thanks to all of you.
  4. Yes Retcop, he still competes. As of Jan 2018, he sepperated from the high school team to focus on smallbore (not permitted in school) and international air rifle (Standing 60 shot unsupported @ 10M). Which in turn made me not just the parent, but also the coach, match coordinator, driver, financier, and crisis intervention expert! Our (his) dream is to make it into a NCAA division I school/team to compete as well as National Junior Olympics coming up next year. The sights are a 22mm globe with an adjustable diameter iris inside. Not pictured are the upgraded rear sight (Anshutz 20-50) fitted with a 5 color filter/adjustable diameter rear iris with polorizer filter (Centra/MEC)for various lighting conditions. The sight is $500 and the rear iris is another $350. the added front iris is also $200 more than the factory fixed iris. Wth the current (matched to rifle) ammunition RWS R50, this rifle will shoot a 20 shot 7.5mm group at 50 feet when he does his part. A .22lr is 6mm bullet. In the pics I added, the 9.6mm group is shot with practice grade ammo (RWS Rifle Match) due to the expense of the R50 @18.50 per 50 rounds. On average he'll shoot 200 rounds per day 5 days a week. We travel (as much as I can afford) to local/regional/National matches. there are very few in our area so we travel at least once a month. Some times to Morgantown WV. and some times to Anniston Alabama to name a few. Nationals were held at Fort Benning GA. He did well for an ametuer level athelete. I bought a Sius Electronic Target for him to practice on. It is set up for 10m Air rifle, 50 meter smallbore 3 position and 50 foot NCAA 3p smallbore. Below you'll see the target (Green box) attatched to the home built 3 position carrier and bullet trap. The white plated I had made at a local machine shop to protect the actual target electronics and target face.
  5. Anybody have the lot numbers handy? I have 3000 WLR primers on the shelf. I hope I have no problem lots. I may not shoot some of these for years.
  6. More fun than talking dirty to the cutie telemarketer!!!
  7. My Century AKMcame with the Tapco mags. the never fed well. I found some romanian surplus mags at AIM Surplus a while back and these work flawlessly. JMO
  8. If you shoot AR's keep a spare bolt/firing pin in your kit. These extractors will break on occasion. I have a spare bolt/pin inside the Magpul grip on every rifle I have. Just in case this stuff fouls up a good range day or if I'm defending my life in a fire fight and it breaks.
  9. Well, This rifle is an Olympic Small Bore Competition Rifle. Made in Obendorf Germany by Feinwerkbau GMBh. Single Shot bolt action. The course of fire depends on the competition sanctioning body. The 3 position Olympics, for Men, is Prone, Kneeling, Standing 20 shots each @ 50 meters within a set time limit. The Olympic Prone is 60 shots only Prone @ 50 Meters The ISSF International is 60 shots standing unsupported. We tested 20 different brands/lot #'s of ammo for this rifle so far. 2 brands stand out for practice ammo. Wolf Match/Extra Match and ELEY Match. All of these are 40g sub sonic Match Grade ammo. For Matches we use RWS Special Match and ELEY Tenex Here's the Kicker: This rifle was bought for my son (15 at the time) for competition. He Shoots on his high school rifle team (air rifle) and will be competing as an individual in Jr Olympic competitions until he goes to college in a few years. We have a match coming up in February at Fort Benning Ga at the Army Marksmanship Unit Pool Range Sponsored by the USAMU. He will also be shooting Air Rifle in the Winter Air Gun Championship Match at Colorado Springs In December.
  10. Done and Done. But.......Georgia's senators have both voiced concideration for review of this despicable bill. Both should be replaced 2018.
  11. Ive got a few "cheap" squirrell rifles to trade for the right stuff!!
  12. Anti panic prices!! I have spare bolts from the begining of the Panic 2013. All it will take is one wrong election to take us back>
  13. Need more details of failure. Does the rifle not pick up the next round ending up with an empty chamber? First cycle check the rifle. load one round in the magazine, seat magazine, pull CH and release to load the round. fire the rifle. does the bolt engage the bolt stop? this checks for short stoke conditions. I suspect the magazine. most feed issues are magrelated IMOE
  14. Used/functional Ar's of mixed pedigree (frankenguns) bring $300 in my area without any add ons or accessories to bump values. Keep the rifle and learn to shoot. you'll be hooked soon enough.
