I can’t get GT to play on Opera, but it’s playing on Firefox. Talking on one, listening on another. Heh. I installed AdBlock and Ghostery, and Opera’s not happy.

He’s had a rough week; hate to see him miss it.

Here’s a 4:34:14 version of “Gettysburg”. Amazing movie; I’m only an hour into it.

New spotting scope.

I have the version with angled eyepiece. 18-38x50mm. Seems to work well, but haven't taken it to the range yet. Looked at Saturn with it the other night and the image was fairly crisp and clear, though pretty small at only 38x. Put a 5M air rifle target on the fence (bullseye is size of a penny) and looked at it from about 50 ft. away. Was able to read all the small text on the target with no problem.

Got it from Sportsmans Guide

How hot is it out your way? I can’t even imagine the kind of heat/humidity combo you and AZ and the rest of the west/southwest go thru.

Evening, Gunners!

Multi-media deprived, but thought I’d drop in and say “hi”.

Picked up a new toy last week - a Springfield M1A SOCOM 16” barrel .308. Unfinished walnut stock arrived Friday. Got some fittin’ and finishin’ to do this week. :)

No tripod, but I have a small tabletop tripod that I got with another cheap scope that will work for the range.

I have an old Star-D camera tripod that’s a fairly decent one, but it has a 3-way head that’s not easy to use with a spotting scope, so will need to find something better to use for birdwatching and spying on the neighbors... LOL.

Zimmerman got out of his car to look for an address number that he could give to the police, not to follow TM. Dispatcher even asks GM if he can still see TM and then GM says ‘no’ and dispatch asks if he can get to a place where he can see him.

It’s much better than mine, that’s for sure.

I will; thanks. I’ve been thru Gettysburg 3x and Antietam 1x, on tours. The CW History is fascinating.

Here’s another one:

“Lincoln and Lee at Antietam: The Cost of Freedom”, also narrated by Ronald F. Maxwell, director of “Gettysburg” and “Gods and Generals”.

Is it against the law to get out of your car?
Is it against the law to give someone a lookover?

Is it against the law to not listen to what some $12 and hour dispatcher says?

This trial is a joke.

Hey gang, I am sorry I nodded off and appreciate that yall filled in, now let me fill you in.

We now sport a 100yd, 200yd,330yd 400yd and 500yd range down here
Steel gongs on the 400 and 500 yard ranges.
I was gonna go there this AM and take pictures and pop a few rounds off but, I was busy chin waggling most of the day.

At any rate the range is looking very nice for the 9th annual TCMS
I WILL do a recon and post pics this 4th July.

W00t!

Howdy, mylife! Welcome back. Try a little cold water on the face and eyes. I forgot to put the “On Tonite’s Show...” content preview up; here it is:

“This Week on Gun Talk Radio”

SAF, A Girl and A Gun

Mandeville, LA – It’s SAF vs. MAIG, a national shooting league for women, and more, this week on Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk® Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.

After Tom Gresham reported that NYC Mayor Bloomberg uses public funds to support his Mayors Against Illegal Guns group on Gun Talk last Sunday, a listener suggested that a FOI request needed to be sent. Gresham agreed, and went to Second Amendment Foundation’s Alan Gottlieb (http://www.saf.org) and CCRKBA’s Dave Workman (http://www.ccrkba.org/). Together, they filed the requests, and are waiting for the results (http://exm.nr/13aNGSx). SAF also requested that the NY Attorney General’s office investigate the Mayor’s office and the report that city employees are working on MAIG campaigns (http://exm.nr/10nYkS4). Gottlieb drops by this Sunday to discuss the most recent developments.

Also stopping in this Sunday is Julianna Crowder, President and Co-Founder of A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League. Currently in 19 states, A Girl & A Gun’s mission is “To educate and encourage women about firearm usage, safety, and promote women’s shooting interest and participation in the competitive shooting sports.” To find a chapter near you, or to start one of your own, visit http://www.agirlandagunclub.com.

It’s also the last few days to enter to win the new Springfield Armory XD-S 9mm! Along with the grand prize, Springfield Armory is giving away six prize packs a week. Enter now through Sunday, June 30th, at http://www.guntalk.com/contest.

In its 19th year of national syndication, Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk Radio airs live on Sundays from 2PM-5PM Eastern, and runs on more than 138 stations, plus on XM (Ch. 243) Satellite Radio. All Gun Talk shows can be downloaded as podcasts at http://www.guntalk.libsyn.com and Apple iTunes, or through one of the available Apps: Gun Talk App on Stitcher, the Gun Talk iPhone App, the Blackberry Podcast App, and the Gun Talk App for Android on Amazon. The Gun Talk Minute on XM also airs on XM 243, 244, 246 and Fox Sports every day throughout the week. More information is available at http://www.guntalk.com.

Yeah, I love the .308 caliber. Also have a Savage bolt action in .308, but something tells me that it will see very little use once I get tuned in to this Springfield.

I wonder how long it will be before I start looking at match sights and that kind of thing. The options are endless.

I guess I’d probably do best to get it into the new stock and get more familiar and proficient with operating it.

50 cal would be very nice, but it’s a bit pricey. Still, love to give it a try some day.

Sweet! I wish "down here" was in Southeast Tennessee. I could really use the 200+ yard ranges (though there is a 200 yard range near Cleveland, TN).

It's starting to show up again here and there. I've got quite a bit of 308 at home, plus I've got some brass, 155 gr boattails, a couple of pounds of decent powder, primers, and dies. Although I'm a little green at reloading, I can and will start making a few rounds myself. I've been working up some pistol rounds to gain some good reloading habits, but these rifle rounds are a bit more involved.

I really wanted to check it out this AM

Some guys opened this http://b-tactical.com/ right down the street from Mickey and I think he is improving his range as a response to them horning in on his regular shop.

At any rate we have lots of new shooting down here.

Mickeys range still rocks.
He is the best
