  1. I see young people at the gym working out, lugging backpacks around with them. To tell you the truth, it makes me a little nervous.
  2. OK, I had to look that one up. Wouldn't that be dangerous, if you fired one round and didn't want to fire a second? Is there a way to decock it or something if you don't want to fire another round?

    Ruger Mini-14

    Just to follow up on this, I called Ruger and explained what was happening. They immediately sent out a new extractor, spring, and plunger. Got them just a few days later. I disassembled the bolt (thanks You Tube) and found a broken extractor spring. Replaced all the parts, and tested it out yesterday. Happy to report that it now seems to be running flawlessly. BTW, it's a little scary to find that a problem with a tiny spring can disable an entire firearm.
  4. You can buy Heritage Arms revolvers new for around $150 and sell them back for $200. Sounds like an opportunity!
  5. Ditto here. Had to do the same thing, but it was pretty quick, and I did not need a new set of fingerprints.
  6. Curious at what distance people zero their AK's. Unlike the AR, where a 50/200 zero is very popular, the 7.62 projectile drops like a rock past 200 yards. I have mine currently zeroed at 50 yards, but I'm think of switching to a 25 yard zero. That zero distance puts the POI 2-4" high at 50-150 yards, then is back to zero at 200. Practical considerations include not being able to use steel core ammo at indoor range like GFH, and not being able to shoot closer than 50 yards at Cherry Ridge. I believe the answer to that would be to just adjust POI to be 2" high at 50 yards. Other than playing around at the range, there's probably not much chance of having to shoot at greater than 200 yards in real life. Any thoughts?
  7. Two thoughts for you: 1. Gun for Hire has a huge selection of rental guns. You can see what they have available on their website: www.Gunforhire.com 2. I have had a Stag Arms Model 2 for almost ten years, and it has been flawless. I've run it through relatively high intensity training classes on many occasions, and can't remember ever having an issue with it.
  8. Nice to enjoy some of the best things in life together: Family, friends, and guns.

    Ruger Mini-14

    Hate to start a new thread for this. Does anyone have ejection issues with their Mini 14? It has always been less than reliable, but now I'm having an FTE once or twice a mag. Thought perhaps it was related to unreliable mags, but it has become clear that the double feeds occur because the casing in the chamber is not being ejected. Guess I'm going to have to get in touch with Ruger, but just curious to see if anyone has any suggestions?
  10. Good point. My situation is the latter. No kids in the house, my wife and me in our bedroom suite. Plan is to take cover in our room, call 911, yell to the perp(s) that we are armed, the police are on the way, get out. BTW, as I'm sure you know, it's entirely possible to move around the house (if you really needed to) with a shotgun, using CQB techniques where the stock is pulled in close. But your point about having a hand free with a handgun is valid.
  11. To each his own, but I would respectfully disagree with you. Certainly, a handgun is OK for home defense, particularly for those disciplined enough to carry one in a holster at all times. But a shotgun is a devastating fight stopper. With only a bare minimum of 6+1 rounds, one would be equipped to handle all but an army of home invaders without needing to reload. A few rounds in a shell carrier would provide additional firepower in the event of a worst case scenario. The difference in capacity is deceptive, because a shotgun loaded with 00 buckshot delivers 9 rounds with a single pull of the trigger. So while I have both available, if I get the chance, I'm going for the shotgun.
  12. It is my understanding (and I'm pretty sure I have this right) that any semiauto shotgun is limited by NJ law to six in the mag tube. I'm too lazy to search for the specific statute, so perhaps others can chime in. BTW, you are not alone in this. NJ firearms laws are designed to entrap lawful citizens, and virtually every violation is a felony, which would mean losing one's ability to own firearms in all 50 states.
  13. Got one recently and love it! Be careful with the extension tube. I was going to put one on, as I could only load four rounds into the tube. But after awhile, I was able to load five (but only four with Federal Flight Control, for some reason), and the two round extension would have put me over the NJ statutory limit of six rounds, making me an instant felon.
  14. Thanks Painless and sa12268, but at this point it look like both deals are going to happen. I may be listing another Mossberg or two in the near future, so stay tuned.
  15. I've got my new Beretta 1301 Tactical shotgun all set up with a sling, an RDS, and shotgun cards for spare ammo. (I was going to add a +2 extension tube, but discovered that I could get a fifth round into the mag tube.) I'm looking to run it through a solid intermediate or so class. Wondering if anyone has any recommendations?
