    BRD Madness. What to do, what to do??

    You are setting a bad example for the rest of us.
  2. Hi, you seem to be the resident expert on the 6.5 Grendel and I' just starting out in long range shooting. Most of the ranges around here are 600yds max.  I can drive a couple of hours and shoot at 1000yd ranges lat3er on. My question is what do I have to do to the Howa mini action, beside a good scope and lots of practice to get it out to 1000yds or is it a waste of time to try it.

      I'm not an expert but I play one in my mind. Honestly, the Grendel is maxed out around 800 yds. A lot of energy has drained off by then. The Howa is great out of the box. Good trigger nice stock. Get the best scope you can afford. Not the most expensive. I also suggest a 20 moa rail and a scope with at least a 30 mm tube. Please let me know if you need anything. Matt

    6.5 Creedmore

    Thanks everuyone for the comments and suggestions. Srgt, the Tikka TX3, but not the A1 is in my budget, I have more money than abiity. 6.5 Grendel looks like it my be the way to go since 600yds seems to be the longest distance we can shooy around here. I'll keep you involved.

    6.5 Creedmore

    Well Longhair you are no longer allowed to comment on my post, J/K. A 6.5 Grendel in a Howa chassis looks very interesting, ammo cost less, rifle cost less, meaning more money for ammo and more money to put toward a good scope. I will keep you guys posted.

    6.5 Creedmore

    I range goes out to 600yds so eventually at least that far.

    He guys now I know this is mainly an AR forum but I was looking for some insight. AR10 in 6.5 or a bolt action. Mainly for range shooting.

    Springfield XD Mod 2 9 vs Glock question

    I've had an XD for a few years now, bought it while Obama was in office. It was also on sale quiet a bit cheaper than the Glocks, it is a .40 that I've put a StormLake 9mm conversion barrel in. I couldn't hit a damn thing with the .40, the conversion barrel made a ton of difference. I actually took my CHL course with this and did very well. I've one malfunction since I've had it, about 6 years now, a failure to eject. I've got too much money invested in it to get rid of it, but I recently bought a Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0 in 45ACP and now I'm eyeing the 2.0 9mm to replace the XD. I suggest you look at the Warrior Poet youtube on the 2.0 Smith, and let your wife shoot the S&W or al least handle one. I've been very impressed with my 45.

    Laser for EC9

    Thanks Towtruck. I'll have to go laser the sights are milled into the slide so they can't be changed.

    Laser for EC9

    I bought my wife a Ruger EC9 and it has the silver slide and small sights, I tried using paint but she still can't pick up the sight very well. I know this is a point a shoot gun but she isn't that comfortable with the front sight. So if you guys who shoot a lot could give me a good recommendation for a laser I would really appreciate it.

    Range Time.

    GL that's how I got the .45 found of couple of boxes of ammo she ask me if we had anything to shoot it with I said no and she said well we need something then.

    Range Time.

    Forsaken, I agree with you all my guns are loaded, she either heard it from a relative, before we meet, or saw it on TV the power of a shotgun being racked is so awesome. As you can see a trip to the range has changed her mind. Anyway an intruder wouldn't be able to hear the racking over the barking of our dogs. Fleshwound, no sisters only girl in the family, 2 brothers, 5 nephews.

    Range Time.

    12ga is out even though it has that click clack sound that makes intruders curl up in the fetal position and cry for mommy. She is a little recoil sensitive on the AR but I can fix that. I do have to be careful, after she shot my LC9s I lost it for a while until I bought her one. So I'm thinking of getting her an AR, giving her my StrikeFire and getting a StrikeEagel 1X8 for me, win win

    Range Time.

    Today my wife, the wonderful Dianna, and I took several guns to the local range one of them my PSA AR15. After firing several rounds she looks at me and says "I really like this". So I think that now she doesn't think she really needs a 12ga pump, she didn't say yes to her own AR but then she didn't say no either. I think I have made another convert.. On a side note my new S&W M&P 2.0 .45 is going to be my new night stand gun..

    StrikeEagle on sale

    I know, what is it I can't stop wanting things for the AR that I don't really need? Yes Retcop I was warned but it's not my fault I'm weak
  15. Ok PSA has Vortex Strikeeagle 1X8 with mount on sale for $299 who has one and how do you like it. I've got the Strikefire II it's brand new and I haven't used it that much but man $299 for a 1X8 Vortex. I'll probably go ahead and buy this so I'm going to have more scopes than rifles. I'm really thinking about getting the scope and paring it with a .308 later, or buy a AR pistiol and transfer the Strikefire over. Why didn't someone warn me about BRD?
