    I need some advice on .30-06 for deer

    My garand LOVES Hornady 150 grain SSTs and my 700 loves 165 regular ol' spitzer power points.

    Who would you want to officiate your wedding?

    I've officiated 5 weddings now. It isn't difficult if you've had some experience speaking in public.

    9mm

    I just built a 9mm AR pistol but thinking of SBRing it. a 16" barrel is going to be overkill as a carbine but plenty out there. I bought a PSA lower that is milled for Glock mags but there are several lower block inserts that go right into your normal lower. You'll need a 9mm BCG. It uses a different buffer and is a blow back only. The mass of the bolt is balanced with the spring so it operates solely on the recoil of the bullet. It results in more felt recoil and has more weight than an AR bolt but that's the easy way to make the system work. I figured with mine that I'd break even at around 1k to 3k rounds different between the 9mm build and a 300 BO build. I have the BO but it's my light weight close range hunter. This one is going to be a great plinker.

    WA Crab

    So my 5 year old loves fishing; especially salmon and crabbing. We've got 3 dungeness and a dozen red rock crab in the freezer. This weekend is also deer opener. I'm hoping we can have a local surf and turf Saturday.

    WANT! KR-9

    I need to get paperwork started for an Eform 1 to "make" an AR-9 pistol into a SBR
  6. That's awesome! WA mulies are 3pt or better. I'm tempted to take my dad towards Spokane and look for some whitetails.
  7. It is 100% and was always meant to be. People during the depression signed up for it and we've worn it ever since.
  8. Knowing more people in the generation I don't think that's a fair assessment.
  9. I really like the aero upper I have,

    Got a small order in from LaRue today.

    I ordered 2 triggers from them and no dust, stickers etc. Just a chew can with the trigger packed in foam. Not surprised though

    Second P80 SC (G26) build Started.

    The P80 builds are so much fun. I had as much enjoyment with this as I did with most of my AR builds. The down side is holster compatibility.

    Hey Jaeger48

    Thank you. I'm not on here as much. Having our youngest being more active takes more time. I've tried to take older 5 year old fishing as much as possible this summer. He's pulled in 2 pink salmon and has been loving it. I've also taken a management position at work which means very little free time. I'll be doing a 13 mile Spartan race on the 7th, 3-5 mile on the 8th, and start a wilderness hunt the week after. Fun times.
  13. I went to Rilea about 10 years ago to attend an airsoft game long before I got BRD. It was a lot of fun doing building clearing and working our way through the "city".

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Actually decapped a couple hundred 223 yesterday. I need to finish up some more and then reload some 9mm

    Is Facebook killing the forums?

    Facebook groups are terrible. I hate the one I'm a member of and only check occasionally if there is some hunting info I may be missing out on.

    AR9

    Before WA goes full potato with 1639 I'm thinking an AR9 build would be a fun change of pace for plinking steel under 50 yards, ammo cost, and new shooters. My question is, as a pistol round I see going pistol or SBR as a good option since I'm not going to get the same blast as with a 223 10" barrel. I'm leaning pistol configuration. The SBR though would be nice for a real stock but bad in several ways (transfer across state lines, registered, tax stamp, etc) Pistol stinks for the brace but is otherwise pretty attractive? I can order a non configured lower and build when I choose. What say you?

    AR9

    If PSA had included a BCG in their father's day dissy I'd be building the next AR. A dissy with dot or fixe rear would be awesome.

    AR9

    maybe, I have a couple lowers in the safe that need builds.
  20. Jaeger48

    AR9

    yeah... got the lower with pistol kit to start off the build. I can SBR it on a form1 with a 10 day turn around

    AR9

    dammit, that makes me marginally think of the 16 but hard on a shorty...
  22. Every time I get an email hocking their stuff I send one right back that they won't get a dime until LaPierre is gone.

    2019 Oregon draw results are in

    I just put in for WA tags. I need to start exploring out of state though.

    f* you in the nicest way possible. I got drawn for bupkiss.

    Who's lower to get?

    They're not the cheapest. They're in WA so my LGS had them on sale so I bought one for sub $75. I have yet to build it but the finish looks better than my Anderson lowers. The bolt release also has a set screw vs roll pin. That's an awesome feature when building.
