Listen to the GT Podcast Here,
Olympics fatigue dittos...
Who knew? The Jamaica bobsled team is racist...
Merryland you had to show “good cause” too.
Better you than me... I just can’t watch it. Too much sports overload.
Have they ever won anything? Or is it just a novelty?
Yes, I remember that.
I’ve got a question.Has anyone here used a Leatherwood scope?I’d like your opinion,I’m considering buying one.
No, I don’t think they’ve ever one anything. It’s just a big deal for them to make it to the 0lympics, I think.
I went to the gun show yesterday.
I’ve never seen so many AR’s in one place in all my life.
All the .22LR ammo was 3x to 4x the normal price.
Never heard of them. But I’m not very knowledgeable past a Leupold.
.22LR is still that expensive? WTF!
All ammo has caught up to normal prices by now I thought?
I’m not familiar with them, but this Hi-Lux TB-ML 3-9X40 unit got a very good review:
I posted this on another forum. I thought that someone here might get a kick out of it....
This morning I went to take a class to get my Texas CHL. I took my favorite gun. My gun that has NEVER had any malfunction of any kind. I am speaking of my Colt XSE. Since it has never had a malfunction of any kind, OF COURSE it would malfunction today. I was shooting a 3 shot sequence and the last round stove-piped. I have had this happen on other guns so I figure, no big deal, I’ll just clear it and lose that last shot, which would mean a 5 point deduction. Yeah right. The slide was completely locked up. I had to fight to get the magazine to come out, then began to feverishly try to rack the slide to clear out the misfed round. Meanwhile, the instructor is telling the group to load 4 more rounds and prepare to fire. If I can’t get the gun unjammed, I am going to fail the proficiency part of the course. As I am tugging as hard as I can on the slide, I realize that somehow the slide stop has come partway out. I shove it back in, and as quick as I can pop 2 rounds in the mag, slap it in and rack my slide. I was able to only get off 1 shot before the timer was up on that sequence. End result, I had to forfeit the original stove piped round, and 3 from that firing sequence. This cost me a total of 20 points. Fortunately, I only lost 3 other points and ended up with one of the better scores in the class. It did take me a few minutes to quit being so agitated about the slide stop. Its my fault, though. I cleaned it last night and probably didn’t quite have it pushed all the way in.
Here’s Optic Plant’s review of a slew of Leatherwoods:
I think Marine snipers used to use their scopes many many moons ago.
My Valentine present from my wife was a ProMag 25 round magazine for my Marlin 795. I hope to test it out Tuesday. I’m also going to zero the scope at 25 yards (closest the range has to 25 meters) so I’ll be ready for Appleseed next month. Woo Hoo!
I just found their Wiki page, and you’re right: major world ***underdog*** status. Heh.
I’m still seeing a little higher than normal pricing on most ammunition, and also limits on how much you can purchase. But .22LR ammo is still in short supply and pricey.
I got a fair deal on some Fiocchi .223 varmint ammo yesterday, though.
So, Murphy went along to the range... Did you change ammo or use new/different mags? Arms locked and stiff? Missed your other post. Nice looking piece!
CZ 82! I haven’t found anything not to like about my 82. Thinking about slicking the trigger a bit but not sure if that’s a good idea in a carry weapon. Any thoughts?
Slide stops are not universal. First time I cleaned my new Kimber Solo I didn’t put their stupid slide stop back correctly, which scratches the side of the frame reinstalling it, and it jammed every time until I figured out what was wrong.
Here was 5 shots with Barnes 110 grain loads.
I did another 10 shots just to make sure...
No changes except Remington 220 grain loads.
Thegirl played along too. Here is one of the birds she winged with a 22.
I did it and Loved It!
How bout the Connecticut Scofflaws???
Kahrs will do that too.
I’ll never understand why THE MOST common ammo, 22LR, can become in short supply.
I’m working incoming loads/inventory at the large FFLs on Thursday eve/Fri morn - 50% ammo, two large consignments of NFA Weapons, and usual store replacements plus new stuff ordered from SHOT Show. I was down looking at the manifests today, feeding the Kimber Twins and exercising the Beowulf 50cal. If some reasonable .22LR comes in, I snag a few bricks. How are you doing for 5.7 stuff, Clint?
Yeah, the CZ82 is sweet. I don’t use mine for carrying on a regular basis (been using my Kel-Tec .380). I haven’t made any alterations whatsoever on my CZ, so I’m not the best to ask, lol.
Are the 220 grain loads subsonic?
There must be a lot more preppers than I figured.
It’s been long enough since I cleaned my Kimber Solo I’d have to youtube how reinstall the slide stop.
You have to push it against the frame and turn it while letting the slide go forward IIRC. WHICH scotches the frame!!! WTF!!!
Isn’t there only 1 or 2 mfgrs of that rimfire caliber? IIRC, the process isn’t a speed race for volume. Plus, I know a lot of people who gotten .22cal conversion barrels for their Kimbers, Glocks, SIGs, S&W, Colts etc and have bought shitloads of .22LR/SR since it’s cheaper than 9mm, .38, .357, .45, .40 etc and lots of new folks coming into the market, choosing that caliber for first firearm.
My CZ82 is my favorite handgun.
Stock trigger on mine is fine. I carry with a round in the chamber and the hammer down. First shot double action, the rest single action.
Yes they were.
I haven't found any other weights on the shelf. Gonna have to go online or roll my own to try some intermediate weights.
If there is only 1to2 mfgs that make .22LR that would explain the shortage.
Still, if preppers are buying it up that doesn’t seem like a first choice for personal -protection/hunting ammo they would need/want?
I've always wondered how others who have the CZ82 carried it. I think I would be more comfortable with your way than "cocked and locked", but I guess it's all a matter of personal preference.
Sighting-In Your Rifle With 2 rounds...
Vortex Optics’ Method of Sighting, Parts 1 & 2:
...and Eric & Jed’ Way...
I just shoved the slide stop all of the way in and magically the gun worked. No more problems after that.
Since my other regular carry gun is a KelTec P-11 which has no safety, I like to carry the CZ that way to keep things simple. No need to mess with the safety. Draw and shoot.
The CZ can be carried safely that way (but you probably knew that).
Thanks for covering
I’d seen the first one before, and will have to check out the others. Thanks!
My CZ 82 may not be my favorite but it’s the one I keep with me. I carry it hammer down and pipe full also. Granted the stock trigger is ok, better than most, it’s just not as good as my Commander. Absolutely don’t want it like my Mark II Target.
That makes perfect sense. I’m in the same boat, since my other is the Kel-Tec P3AT (likewise, no safety). I may just follow your lead. Thanks for sharing!
I’ve got 7-8 cases of Fiocchi .357 Magnum 158gr HPs, from much cheaper times in 2002-03, and the Colt Trooper MK III and Henry Big Boy .357 Mag eat it just fine. Good stuff.
