Intro to the Shooting Sports - This Week on Gun Talk Radio

Mandeville, LA – It’s an outdoor program for kids in Pennsylvania, and a program that introduces new individuals to shooting sports, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk (R) Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.

Located in Allentown, PA, Camp Compass Academy (http://www.campcompass.org/) introduces urban middle & high school students to various outdoor activities, including shooting, fishing, hunting and archery, along with tutoring and social guidance. Founder John Annoni stops by this Sunday to discuss the successful non-profit academy he’s been hosting for more than 17 years, along with his newest venture, 2 Million Bullets. Find out more at http://www.twomillionbullets.org/. Watch his video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqyisjPEVlc&feature=youtu.be

Tisma Juett, Manager of NSSF’s First Shots program, drops in with info on the program that has “helped ranges across the country introduce thousands of individuals to shooting and firearm safety”. Developed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the First Shots program is open to all ages, and hosted by local shooting facilities. On March 3rd, residents of Miami and Sacramento will fill First Shots seminars as NSSF continues their national tour in big cities. Find out more at http://www.nssf.org/FirstShots/.

Got a call from the NRA yesterday. The UN Global Ban on weapons has reached a final draft and is scheduled for a vote in July. Please put out the word and get people calling.

I believe that this constitutes a high crime and misdemeanor by the President and Secretary of State, as it violates not only our Second Amendment rights but their Oath of Office.

Polymer Lower, huh ... does it have any kind of warranty?

Lifetime. Whatever that means. It’s really pretty tough though. I’ll give you a range report if I ever get out there again.

I have an Armalite with a polymer lower. So far, no problems.
It makes for a nice lightweight rifle.

Does it use the longer trigger and hammer pins, like the CavArms polymer lowers did? I like the carbine stock - the full-sized buttstock was my biggest gripe with the CavArms lowers.

I don’t think they’re longer, but the entire fire control group is polymer. Even the take down pins are polymer. I’m not real wild about that, but for 99 bucks it’s worth a shot at having a lightweight rifle.

What kind of rifle is that???

I have a friend who has one that looks just like it and he knows nothing about it...

Would you consider referencing this on the Gun Talk Thread?

I think it’s important.

Your mileage may vary.

Well, since that last post of mine was supposed to be a FRmail I guess I’ve answered my own question.

DOH!

A member of the 34th Infantry Regiment and a farmer by trade, Simo Häyhä became a most feared sniper during the 1939-40 (30 November 1939 14 March 1940) Winter invasion of Finland by the Soviet Union. Using nothing more than an iron sighted Mosin-Nagant Model 28, Simo is credited with killing 505 Russians during a three month period - a feat still unmatched today by any sniper in any conflict.

I'm lucky to put five consecutive rounds on paper at 200 yards, with roughly the same rifle. Simo deserved his "White Death" nickname.

I believe it’s a Finnish Mosin Nagant.

They are highly sought after.

Looks like a Mosin-Nagant

Muzzle flash and overpenetration are some common side effects.

If I had the money I’d be buying Mosins by the crate.

A 121 year proven design, high power, and inexpensive.

You could equip your whole neighborhood for when the SHTF.

From the old AK vs AR vs Mosin comparison...
Recoil is often used to relocate shoulders thrown out by the previous shot.

It’s perfectly acceptable to put a recoil pad on a Mosin-Nagant. (Not just for recoil, but because the short stocks were designed for Russians wearing heavy wool coats.)

It’s still better to be behind a Mosin than in front of one.

Yep, much better to be behind it than in front. After all...
You can knock down everyone else's target just from the shock wave of your bullet going downrange. LOL

Yep.

I still remember the first time I took my M91/30 out to the range. Upon my first shot, everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, on the range stopped to see who brought the cannon.

:)

Eventually the scar tissue will make your shoulder work like it's one solid immobile piece.

There are always other choices.

It just may be that one or more of them are not acceptable to you.
