Rifle Scopes
November 29, 2012 — 3:51

2/10/2011 1:04:00 PM I just went thru the process of selecting a 3 gun scope. I was using an Eotech. Our range has always had short range targes, so i didnt need more. They recently stated that we will be shooint out to 200 yards. I tried the eotec with a 3x magnifier. It seemed to work just fine, even out a few hundred yards. 1-4x would be fine. I ended up getting a Weaver 1-3x. The reasons were: it is lighter than all of the 30mm 1-4x scopes shorter than those scopes great glass true 1x. A little goggle eye at very close targets, within 5 feet. no batteries to screw with great eye relief. 3.5 inches YMMV the price is great. Usually under $200 i havent used it in a match yet, but i am confident it will do the job. The few times i practiced with it, i was happy. I will not be using any BUIS or a second red dot. The Rifle Scopes will be my only sights. Past 300 yards, this Rifle Scopes might not be ideal, but for 200 in, i should be good. good read Assaulter

If the prospect of having your thumb hit by the bolt is unacceptable do not attempt to load your Garand.

Cheaper alternatives for a 1-4x scope are the Trijicon TR24 or the Leupold VX-R. At 1 power you they have the same fast acquisition characteristics as an Aimpoint/eotech red dot.

Turn it down for the 10′ shots, crank it up for the 200 yard shots.

Rifle Slings
November 29, 2012 — 3:37

The workmanship looks and feels top-notch and installation was easy. How easy was it? It took me longer to open the box than it took me to install them. Thank you! This is how I got mine. Plus you can get it even tighter by pulling on the strap after you run the “tab” all the way forward. Again, you can buy pads and add them to whatever rifle sling you choose. Here’s one example: [url/http://www.maxpedition.com/product/product_shoulderpad_15.htm You shouldn’t be wasting your time worrying about how it attaches, you should be looking at how the rifle sling actually works. What type of rifle sling are you looking for? Do you want the freedom of a single point or the control of a 3-point? Do you need it to be quickly adjustable so you can transition to your other shoulder? Do you work around water or in some type of environment where you might need to quickly get out of the rifle sling? These are the questions you should be asking. Do you have any plans to combine this with the Thorntail mounts? One side the light mount, one side the rifle sling mount? I don’t think I’d want my rifle sling mount that far out on the rail. JMHO. 1/19/2007 12:12:38 PM I do a lot of walking/hunting with my AR’s, and use a rifle sling similar to the one in the pic in ‘Combat_Divers’ post. designed to go over your right shoulder (if your a right handed shooter) I just throw it over my left shoulder and sweep the barrel around under my right arm, with the buttstock up agains my pack, then tighten the strap and it stays nicely, barrel down along my right side easily controlable through the brush ect.. and handy to get into use also. hope this helps Edit* sorry didnt see Unicorns post, same info. 05gpgt2

Prepared store owner foils robbery, WYMT, Hazard, Ky. 09/18/12
A pair of armed robbers entered the Meta Mart convenience store in Pike County, Ky. and headed towards the counter. Upon spotting the men, the clerk on duty called out to store owner Garry Thornsberry, who was in a back office. After glancing up at a security monitor, Thornsberry recognized the threat, retrieved a gun and fired at the two criminals, causing them to flee. Thornsberry told local media that he had mentally prepared himself for a violent confrontation following robberies at other stores in the area, stating, “You have to prepare. It’s too late when it happens to start thinking ‘what am I going to do.’” Thornsberry went on to comment, “Until we get some of these people off the streets we’re going to have to live in fear of going to work.”

Magpul CTR
The supplied bolts from ACE are 5mm/.80 TP. I used a tap and drill bit from ACE Hardware. Nothing fancy. I used a IRWIN 5mm-0.80 tap set with corresponding IRWIN #19 tap drill bit. I marked one hole and drilled it with the DRACO hanging in a vice(wood pads). The standard drill bit(not a bit for hardened steel) cut quickly with a cordless drill. Tapping the hole should be a 1/4 turn affair then back out- start over and with lots of oil. It took about 15 min per hole to tap. Go slow, too fast and you risk breaking the tap off in the hole.(Higher quality taps will resist this) Marking the second hole is much easier once the assembly is mounted temporarily. This mount is a one finger open/close and locks open very securely as all ACE mounts do. I’m a lefty and while the Magpul stocks is folded I can use the pistol just like the Magpul stocks is not there- it interferes none whatsoever. Some pics for comparison- M16 10.5 SBR and Draco SBR. Its basically the same length as a 10.5″AR SBR. It just weighs twice as much. dano357
