    Ar home defense

    I have also seen the same in penetration tests. Changed my mind about a rifle for home defense. Now I’m more afraid of over penetration with my .45. For me I go for the newly released Hornady critical defense 73gr for various reasons. I used to have some PowerPoint hunting ammo but now that is for punching paper.

  3. I went with Palmetto for my first AR. One and a half years later (and several hundred rounds) I’m still quite happy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    M&P Sheild 9mm

    I'll second that. Mine was real stiff right away too. Feels really nice now. Congrats on a great firearm purchase I've had mine two years and still love it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    AMMO DEALS

    I have used LAX Ammo reloads in my 9mm and .45 with excellent results. I have not purchased any rifle ammo from them but would not hesitate to do so. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Palmetto is going to bankrupt me.

    I here you there. I was thinking about stopping the daily email stream from them when I almost bought a Glock 42 + billet upper and lower for what the LGS was asking for only the pistol.

    First range trip

    Also the manufacturer says they are reversible for ultra compact scopes so they should work either way. Thanks for trying to save me from getting grief [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The scope is too far forward the other way. If anyone doesn't like it that's ok it's not there rifle. [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    First range trip

    Thanks for the tips. I am not new to rifles just AR-15's and I have mounted a lot of scopes. The rings had to mount that way to both clear the rear BUIS and provide proper eye relief for my shorty little scope. If you look at Caleb's pic my scope is in almost the same exact place relative to the upper. If my scope was significantly longer like my 4-12 power on my hunting rifle the rings would definitely mount swept forward. Thanks again guys hopefully the pics and discussion are beneficial to the gun community. [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    First range trip

    Scope rings came in today hopefully the rain stops long enough to try out the new optic. Oh and I did have to move the rear sight back for the scope. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    First range trip

    i think you are correct and I can go back one more notch but when the rear sight is down it's pretty close to the charging handle. Scope goes on tomorrow and the sights might not see much use so I might only move em if I need more room. Thanks for the tip! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    there was a little trail out too it. 40+ in Duluth MN is a heat wave. Heavy shirt weather didn't even need the sweatshirt. [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    First range trip

    Temperature needle hit 40 today so I took my PSA freedom rifle for its first trip to the range. I have to admit I was a little nervous at first because it's the first one I've built but thanks to the wonder of the internet and a little mechanical aptitude it functioned flawlessly. It took a little bit to get the sights dialed in but the last adjustment seemed ok. Started at 50 yards and moved up to 25. Can't wait for my scope rings to show up tomorrow and hopefully the weather will support another range day over the weekend. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
