    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.

    There is a R700 5R in a HS stock with Nikon FX1000 on top for 900 on MeWe. It's down by Howell, NJ. I don't know the guy personally. I can get his info and pass it along if you're interested.
  3. I was mostly kidding. I forgot to add a smiley emoji.
  4. Let's not get crazy here...
  5. Take a look at the Springfield Mil-Spec. A great gun, relatively inexpensive. Also an awesome base to build on if you decide to go that direction. Good luck.
  6. I agree. A 19 size glock is the way to go. If you decide to game it, put a 17 slide on it and have fun. The 19 grip is a bit girthy. I actually handled some in the LGS today. I had a 19 a good while ago, when the G4 was new. It was a good gun but I really don't love plastic guns. I prefer metal guns for the recoil impulse. However, as with all things, my mind is probably gonna change more because of the modularity of the platform than anything else. Also, as much as I hate to do this... CALLING @Old School !!!
  7. Are you looking for something in 45 or 9? I would for sure tell you to take a long look at Springfield (I sound like a fan-boy, which I'm actually not) for the price, quality, and customer service. I also must say that Kimber CS has been wonderful. Ruger is also fantastic, probably the best. Remington is not great from the folks I've heard from nor is Colt.

    Shoot me a PM if you’re ever in Bergen County. You can peer thru my NF and Leupy.

    6.5 flies better. You will be a better shot with a 6.5 than a 308, all other things being equal, past 500 without question. Example: I took a class a couple of years ago. I was one of 4 shooters and the only one running a 6.5 (6.5x47). The class was out to 750. I was listening to the instructor call out wind for the other shooters. As my turn came around, I immediately corrected for wind and let fly. I missed. The instructor asked what had happened. I told him I corrected for wind (this was on a 500 yard target). He asked me what caliber I was shooting. I told him. He told me to disregard wind correction until after 650. I did so and connected pretty much every time. To say my buddy was pissed is an understatement. As far as buying an action it's an option. However there will be a wait and the season is upon us. I would tell you to buy the rifle, complete, and then barrel it this winter when you are more sure of your needs/goals. Going custom out of the box sounds great but sometimes it's not. My one buddy regularly kicks the asses of guys with $6000 rigs with his box stock Savage. He bedded it and did a touch of trigger work. But that's about it. He also reloads and developed a load for it that shoots lights out.

    Understood. Remember that my opinion is worth exactly what you're paying for it... IMO, with 300WM the juice isn't worth the squeeze. "Hunting" in any form, sure. For paper I think there are better options that leave the shooter less fatigued. Especially if the gun will be shot in a "tactical" hold kind of way: essentially a hard hold. The 300 is a lot of powder popping off. Add a big bullet on top and the shoulder will feel it. The 6.5 class is much easier. The 6's even more so. My buddy has a 6.5x47 that's a relative pussycat. My other buddy has a straight .243 that is astounding to shoot. Each will do well to 1000. The big 7's will get there with a little less wind deflection, but again, at the cost of significant recoil. If someone is going to shoot 1000-1500 on a regular basis, the bigger rounds are worth it. In NJ, I wouldn't steer too many that way. Perfect example: my very good friend had a rifle built up in .408CT. Awesome rig. Custom action, Cadex chassis, yadda-yadda. Really nice gun. He sold it. There is no where around here to stretch it out. It's a several hour ride each way. I spoke to a guy in Idaho. He's 35 minutes from 1500 yards. This is the wrong part of the country for rifles like that. I'm not saying someone shouldn't have one. Not at all. It just shouldn't be a primary or first. If that 1200 yard thing comes together, and I can go, I plan on taking my .223. My handloads are just capable of it. Like "ragged edge" capable. Most likely they'll be tumbling on the steel at 1200. But they should make it. And to me, that's part of the fun. Doing more with less. More distance with less bullet/powder/recoil.

    Hey @Zeke @Vicious take all this with a grain of salt. I'm just a cranky old f*&k with too many opinions... First off, 300WM...?!?! I'd have to ask why the hell you'd want that? That's a lot of expensive recoil to hit paper. Given that the 6.5Creed can go a mile and not beat you up (physically or financially) I'd really recommend reconsidering that option. Great option for soft targets really far away. For paper there are, IMHO, considerably better options. Almost any out of the box rifle will get you there. Pick one. I love Tikka however aftermarket support is hit and miss. It's there it's just harder to find. Savage is awesome, however my big issue is that there are no true 2-stage triggers on the market for Savage. I'm a 2-stage kinda guy. The Ruger RPR is an awesome rifle. There is a guy shooting extremely well with one in F-Class, all he did was re-barrel it. The Bergara is also getting solid reviews everywhere I see it pop up. I believe (don't hold me to this) that the action works in a 700 footprint stock. Do your due-diligence on that one. You can buy an out of the box 700SPS in your caliber choice, slap it in a KRG Bravo and upgrade the trigger(I like Timney for all but the most demanding BR guy) for under 1500 most likely. Shoot the snot out of it and then, when you're really ready and actually know what you want out of a rifle, get the action worked and have it re-barreled. My current rig is a 700 with action work and a Timney Calvin Elite in a McMillan stock. It's pretty accurate. And consistent. It's also well above your 1500 mark. But, I broke it up over time. And 700 parts are everywhere. New and used, you can literally do everything to a 700 with the click of a mouse. Good glass will only add to everything I said. If you really want to enjoy your time at the range, get solid glass. The new-ish Leupold VX series are getting rave reviews. I have a VX5 and cannot recommend it highly enough. It's 3-15 and will get you on steel at 1000 without issue. I really like that scope. For my chosen game, it doesn't have enough juice, but if it did, I would run in on my match gun. The PST line from Vortex would be as low as I would be willing to recommend. I know that guys are running Athlon scopes with success, but I've not been behind one. I currently have a NightForce on my match rifle. I sold 3 Vortex scopes to buy it. I feel it's that nice. My biggest thing is that I can be behind my NF for a complete 20 round string and not feel the need to come off the gun. My eyes don't get worn out. But, again, it's not inexpensive. Reloading is it's own animal but if you really want consistency, it's what has to be done. Good luck. Feel free to reach out if I can help. My suggestion: https://www.gunbroker.com/item/803637985 $630 https://kineticresearchgroup.com/product/bravo-chassis/ $350 https://timneytriggers.com/remington-700-w-safety/ $150 = $1130
  12. That’s a pretty perfect AR and a nice deal. GLWS
  13. I'm very interested in this. I'd love to shoot my 223 at that steel. Date makes all the difference to me. If it's mid-summer and mid week, I'll take a day. If a weekend, Sundays are best for me. Taking off Saturday and losing that loot is tough. But, with enough notice, I can attempt it. I also need to be sure it doesn't conflict with matches. But yeah, I'm interested. Should I follow along here or will you start another thread @Maksim? @AmosM223
