  1. SO now that it's over. How many people were prepared if it went the other way?

    I need some ar ideas now

    Going to do a dmr rig with a 2.5 x10 on it but after that not sure. Probably a beater.

    Going to get an airbrush kit so I can do dura and cerakote too

    I'm still on the fence about a 6.5 grendel. After getting the 6.5CM I really want to shoot one and see how they compare.

  2. Guns, ammo/shells, tools+cleaning kit, first aid, gloves/eyepro/earphones, a ream of 8.5*11 and a stapler, spray paint, clays, and water. If we've made new steel targets we'll haul them up to leave out there (private range).

    We don't bother with brass catchers, just sweep and sort cases at the end of the day. Our friend who built/owns the range reloads so we leave him brass and usually a case of beer for a "range fee".

    God that sounds nice

  3. lol yeah, when I got all the parts, I pretty much could have bought a RPR.

    Hindsight= a bitch

    and I know who I'm not voting for N8, kinda wondering what's going to happen to all of our guns, if you know who gets in.

    I'll admit, first thing I did when I got home with my new gun was get online and look at ugrades. Shit adds up though. Plus the gun shoots better than I can as is.

  4. You could try to kreg jig it maybe. Depends entirely on how the piece is situated.

    Also for future reference, resin alone won't add worthwhile strength to wood, it's way too brittle. If you're going through the mess of resin add a bunch of chop mat, three or four layers at least. It's hardly any extra work for a big payoff (if you're already laying up straight resin, for a smooth finish or whatever.)

  5. My new 870 as well as a buddy of mine both have extraction issues. His is terrible, it jams most every shot with cheap ammo. Mine is not so bad but every dozen or so with cheap shells. Also the finish is fucking awful on mine, thing rusts way too easy.

    Edit: That said I think it's a relatively easy fix, little bit of dremel work on the barrel from what I found on the interwebz.

  6. Now the question is do I spring for a new scope. The guy at Cabelas told me he could hook me up with a Vortex HST for $250, though I'm not sure wich model.

    Cabela's has a sale going on for the Vortex Viper HS 4-16x50 LR for ~$450, which is a damn good deal. I wish I had of seen it before I bought mine.

    Shit, that's probably what I'd rather have. Might have to go look later.
