Another great option is the Stevens M200 made by Savage. Better than an Axis IMHO but not as pricey as the straight Savage rifles.

One of these are in my near future.

Please let me know when you do the next one, not in a Saturday Am, as I have Temple on Saturdays. A few of us shoot up near west Sedona off 89A. Not much room for CF rifles, but more then enough for handguns, Shotguns, and 22's. Amm2 knows me from another Board or 2. I'm also NSSF credentialed media, and I host and produce a Shooting/2A podcast. Always glad to make new friends in the shooting community. I'm sure I was here for a bit last year and recognized a few folks from other boards. The wife and I also shoot at Copper Star in camp verde( when it's too hot or too cold out. I'm also an Army Vet(12 yrs-Aviation)

If I recall correctly the next few shoots will be down in Maricopa and will be morning shoots.  The shoots will move back up to Prescott next summer.

Gunsmithing and Firearm Repair / Re: AR Feeding issues.
« Last post by ShootersElement on Today at 08:24:05 AM »
From the pictures it looks like there are some burrs on the lugs of where the feed ramps are (near the top of the pyramid and on the outer edge). At least that's what it looks like to me because I can see material build up towards the top and your ammo shows gouges in the bullet where it would slide.

If you are not a competent tinkerer, I would strongly suggest your take this barrel/upper into a gun smith and have them smooth it out for you.

However, if you feel like you can handle this (I don't know your skill level) I would take a very fine file and run it forward (not backwards) to knock down the burrs on the lugs (where the feed ramps are). 3 maybe 4 passes and then try a round in it to see if that helped.

Like I said, get your facts straight.  They didn't surrender one for the other.  One was wrenched from them, and they (the voters) took steps to correct the issue, by removing some of the folks responsible.  The other was driven by...  oops! those damn voters again.

While they, at this point, still can't own those items, there are initiatives in the works to get that changed.  It takes time.

We're in the middle of mid-term elections.   

I'm sure when the Clinton gun ban passed, they were thinking that it was here to stay (thank <insert deity> for sunset clauses).  I'm also certain that when Chicago, and DC passed their draconian gun laws they where thinking the very same thing.  Nothing is written in stone.  And even if it were, I'm sure someone out there has got a nice big sledge hammer.

That's the unique thing about the US.  We can change things.  No one thought that we'd ever have CCW in Arizona.  Now we have Constitutional Carry.

The point you missed about Kronos and T.'s posts, is that the Constitution does not convey any rights, it affirms them, and limits, by specifically enumeration, what the government can do with respect to those rights.

You need to read this, and attain a level of understanding:
Quote
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

You should also read and understand the Tenth Amendment, because it also applies:
Quote
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Yeah, I will be keeping an eye on them for sure. If you hear things (good or bad), or get one to play with, let us know!

I picked up a Mossberg MVP in 5.56 mainly because I liked the fact that is uses regular AR15 mags.  I got the 18" threaded barrel version and after running some rounds through it to break it in found it is a great shooter. I wasn't expecting too much honestly because of who made it and the price but I was surprised. Easily getting sub MOA and I have fun banging steel out to 500m at our local range.

Pic of the full gun with a Lancer 20 rd and a close up of it with a Lancer 10 round which I mostly use in it:

Here's where you should probably get your facts a bit more straight.  They had a recall election in Colorado, to get rid of the idiots that passed those draconian gun law.  And hey! Guess what else!  Legalized pot was a fucking VOTER INITIATIVE TOO!  Dumb ass.

Well, here is a news flash, Dumb Ass. In Colorado 30 round magazines, collapsible stocks, and bayonet lugs are still ILLEGAL, All courtesy of your friendly gun hating Democratic liberals. And they will continue to be. Here is another one. DeGette is still very much alive and well in the Colorado legislature. She isn't going anywhere. Here is her E-Mail if you'd like to contact her about her love for your firearms rights....... http://degette.house.gov/contact. And remember, just like Mr. T already pointed out:

You can't have it both ways.

But don't let me stand in the way of your total lack of political understanding and common sense. The fact remains we're a 2 party system, and we'll continue to be long after you've dissolved into dust. Libertarians don't account for $h!t. Never have, and never will. Not even Ron Paul, the biggest dope lover of all, could get them out of the political cellar. So the fact remains, do you want dope, or guns. Colorado chose one, and in the process lost the other, or a substantial part of what they had. The same will happen in California with the exception they've already managed to lose the bulk of their gun rights by electing communist liberals. So they might as well at least be able to get high for the effort. Communist liberal Democrats are the party of gun banning. Always have been, and always will be. They are also the party of drug legalization. The Republicans are the party of "NO". No to drug legalization, and NO to the bulk of gun control. So your little rant changes nothing. Again the fact remains, which one do you want? The choice is up to you.

The Ruger American is there entry level gun. They are basically a utilitarian gun that will get the job done.
If you want better accuracy and good groups and want a Ruger get a model 77. They are a much better gun all the way around.

There are lots of good bolt action rifles out there. I personally like Remington.
My bolt action .223 is an old Remington 722 that was originally in .222 and I had it punched out to a .223.

Looks like it's legal under Texas law. But the officers apparently referred the case to a grand jury. Glad only the bad guy got killed.
