    Senator Dianne Feinstein,

    I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government's right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma'am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.

    I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
    I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.

    I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.

    We, the people, deserve better than you.

  1. Sure. Bring cash... Thanks. Getting out Monday.
  2. Heh. Me too... Although the next "Black Magic" will be coming off my lathe. I'm mentally preparing to spin my own threads/chamber. The mental game is the most difficult to overcome. That'll be a different thread tho.
  3. Thanks gents. Blake, I've seen your stuff posted for sale and it's all droolworthy. High Exposure, thanks as well. Always good to get professional kudos.
  4. Yeah. Normally I like lower power stuff. But trying to actually be "precise" I feel like the mag will be a benefit. Additionally one of my buddys is running the same scope and he wins a lot. So, in the interest of having as much advantage as possible, I went for it. Thanks for chiming in.
  5. Well.... In the spirit of not leaving well enough alone, I went and changed optics. Mounted on top WAS a Vortex Viper PST 6-24 EBR2C reticle. Nice scope for the money and I'll probably own another one one day. However I wanted more of an almost "TIer 1" optic while still keeping some kind of sanity. And although guys like @Shane45, @Blake and @High Exposure may not consider it a true "Tier 1" piece of glass, for me... it amounts to insane money and I can't believe I was able to pull it off. Hopefully showing up tomorrow is a NightForce NXS 8-32 MOAR. Most likely it will rest in 4 screw NF Ultralight rings unless it fits in my Seekins. The Seekins are most likely too low, however. I guess we'll see. Yup, big magnification. Not normally my thing. To me, most optics with over 20x are a waste of money as the mirage can be brutal however since I will be shooting FT/R with this rifle, the option to go big was one I couldn't resist. Pics to follow if/when this thing shows up.
  6. Actually I did my job. I went to work to make money to feed my family. I would take the time off to attend a rally if it was worth it. However I don't feel like it is. I also am one to believe that the rallies accomplish absolutely nothing. The elected powers have already made up their mind and no rally from either side will change anything. What will change their mind is if we, as a collective group, can get behind ONE candidate and get him/her into a position of power to change the way things are done in Trenton. Then, we get another ONE candidate to do the same thing. We use their tactic of incrementalism to change the way things are done. Additionally we need to educate kids, at the schoolwide level, that guns are fun, increase focus, will get them outside and are to be respected. Teach them the sporting side of shooting. A 22lr "PRS" style competition format would be amazing. However it has to be a lot of schools involved, not just affluent ones. As far as the "billionaire funding" argument, there are plenty of uber-wealthy gun owners that don't put up. It would be nice if one or two would to help fund a grassroots endeavor. Kids and backroom dealings are the keys. Rallies... not so much. Not to me at least. I've said this before, after SH, there was a guy on here that publicly declared that he was going to take a politician's job. Sent him a note and posted up and down this board. He couldn't even collect enough signatures to get himself on the ballot. That's why they feel they can be so bold. They are generally confronted by empty promises and threats from us. Last election, no seats turned. Tell me exactly why they should listen to a bunch of folks in front of the statehouse again?
  7. Different circumstances but I just purchased a LNIB NightForce NXS 8-32 MOAR. I'll be shooting FT/R with it hence the insanely high mag. Great glass and the reticle is more than I'll be needing most days. My buddy has the same scope and it's why I went with it. I spent a few rounds behind his rifle and came away impressed by the scope. As to NF not having too many QC complaints @Indianajonze, that depends on the model and where you look. There is a certain, very well respected 'smith that has been quite vocal about tracking issues with the NF Competition scope line. He's someone who's opinion I trust given a conversation I've had with him and his abilities. He mentioned that he never ran into such a problem with the NXS line-up which was another feather in the NF NXS cap when making my decision. Good luck to the OP.

  9. Shooting FT/R on Sunday. First time. I have 100 rounds loaded up and a ballistic chart from StrelokPro printed out. I’m hoping for the best. I haven’t had much time to practice or do any real serious load work but I think I’m in the ballpark with my current load. And yes, I’ve corrected right Here’s to hope!
  10. I am. @Shane45 has two of these, one in 6.5Creed (AKA, the Magic Missle) and 300 Norma Magnum. I can't afford to reload the 300NM, but I'd like to try.
  11. 16 is fine for steel out to over 1k. I've shot 700 and never take my scope off 10x. Higher mag is for paper/group shooting.
  12. I'll assume you don't reload? You may want to. You "may" realize slightly better accuracy over distance. As to CR, just drop me a note a few days ahead of time to be sure I'm going. Most likely I am but better safe than sorry. Good luck with it and stay safe.
