    A question on LOOOOOOOOOONG term optics...

    All I do is change my aimpoint batteries every year and buy an extra set in case of emergencies. I usually do it in Dec. But have left it go until Jan. 5 year battery life with fresh batteries... plus a few extras, and I have iron sights. So 7 years into it (safe estimation) i would be more worried about food and ammo and medicine than the batteries on the t1s or trijicon mro. Then you have the AA and AAA batteries that last 10 years or something on the shelf. And I have 1-4 luepolds i could swap out if it gets real bad.
  2. I want a light that goes on and off, no bullshat strobe, no changing output. I have a inforce wml and it has 2 settings. Would be perfect if it had only 1. The last thing I want to have to worry about is what brightness setting is my light on and what button to hit. I'm trying to buy a surefire x300 but the models are throwing me off a little, also I want a pressure pad instead of the switch but my Google foo is failing

    I need advice / info on combat point shooting!

    Xs big dot sights, and start looking into a red dot on 1 pistol for home defense. Ever turn off your red dot on your rifle and use the tube for a sight? Try it out to 15 yards and see how it works. Same thing goes for a pistol with a red dot, get a trijicon and use the v at the top of the sight. Probably going to fall on deaf ears but instead of buying a rifle or pistol I would save and get this taken care of first.

    Water and guns

    A friend was in the same situation, lots of companies helped out, some sent replacement gear, some sent swag packs, some sent new gear and requested the old be sent in even if they still worked.

    You can also contact aimpoint and they will probably send you some swag.

    New hunting rifle for my (adult) son...

    Tikka Bergara or a savage. I would rather use a pointy stick then buy another Remington rifle.
  7. As the title states, I'm looking for a pic rail and a set of rings, or single piece mount, for the bergara b14 hmr. It uses Remington style mounts. I was checking into EGW for the picatinny rail. And a set of Steiner 34mm rings. https://www.opticsplanet.com/steiner-t-series-riflescope-rings.html?_iv_code=ST-RR-TSRRGS-5965 I was thinking medium height but I could be wrong. and I need to start posting pics of everything sometime.
  8. Wow this thread really blew up. I will put something together.
  9. Thanks. Looking for suggestions on a different setup, which brands are good to go, which ones to stay away from... etc. Also If I punched everything in correctly I should have a half inch clearence using the low rings from Steiner. Ring height is .885 (low) Taper is #6 taper height (if correct) is .47 And scope obj. Is 56mm
  10. First 600 yrd shot at a comp. That's some big cohunnas. I probably would have been sweating bullets with that fact alone. Good job.

    PCC Question

    My Wife likes the scorpion evo carbine. 9mm , 3 30rd mags loaded with 124 grain federal hsts, red dot, faster reloads easier for her to shoot then the glock 19x with 23 rounds. She likes it more then the DDmk18. It's a fun range toy for me. And hopefully I get it chopped and suppressed. The wife enjoys shooting it. She is 100 times more interested in learning how to operate it from reloading to clearing a malfunction compared to an ar15. I use a mossberg 20 gauge and glock 19x for HD. And as long as she has something with 30+ rounds available I could care less about the rifle vs. Pistol calibre debate.

    Too many ARs ???

    Depends. If I'm going to lose my family's home, I will sell just about everything I own and not think twice. If I'm just wanting to pay off something [lowes credit card] I will sell the easiest gun that I can offload, and reaquire later. Glocks, ar15s and new Remington hunting rifles aren't going to be worth the same as colt pythons in 10 years. Just about everything I own has a price tag on it. Just have to find someone willing to pay it. 2 guns I wont get rid of, a Sears and roebuck. 22 I got when my grand father passed, and a Remington 30-06 my dad got for me when I started hunting.

    EDC Selection

    You got it. Go ahead rampy tell me how your going to go against pat mac, travis haley, and Clint smith All well trained and 2 with rifles and you with your carry piece. Your as smart as the empty box of hsts I have in under my reloading bench if your walking into a gunfight out gunned and out numbered. The fact your walking into a gunfight makes you half brain dead. Do I have faith in my carry gun, yes Would I knowingly go into a compromised position where 3 people are waiting for me and again they have rifles I have a pistol... no

    Best way to win a gun fight, don't get into a gunfight.

    Some thoughts on the Polymer80 80% Glock frame kits.

    I read it, you just left out the part where they offered you a free one to replace the one you messed up from not following the directions, and geepee3 also made a post about it the steps to follow in another thread. so one more line of text would have stopped that. I have 3 of them, and know alot of people with poly80s that the jig worked fine. Over priced, yes but they go on sale regularly for 75.00 to 119.00

    Some thoughts on the Polymer80 80% Glock frame kits.

    So you messed up the build, didnt follow their instructions and they offered you a free replacement, but you chose to buy the same color at a discount and the kits are junk? Just making sure I read that right.

    Because I dont know if I'm going to be in a gunfight. But if I did you have my answer. No Rambo bullshat from me. And if someone you trained with tells you to take your handgun against those odds... he's an idiot.

    If I knew I was going to be in a gunfight tomorrow?..... 3 well trained crooks and some with rifles? And you want me to bring a handgun? I would call the cops and stay home and watch Netflix.
  21. Pat Mac's intensity is insane. Also his shooting drills border on torture.

    Run Cows Run! Video of Oregon Shootout

    What would be the consequence if someone who lived in the house closest stuck a 308 round into this guys chest ending the gun fight?

    He couldn't keep up with the 30s, passed out in the bathroom. But at least he isnt a 5rounder.... they like scarfs, and man buns.
