  1. Not necessarily a "hot deal", but if you need it: http://www.cabelas.com/product/Shooting/Ammunition/Rimfire-Ammunition|/pc/104792580/c/104691780/sc/104536080/Norma-USA-TAC-22-Rimfire-Ammo/1804607.uts?destination=%2Fcatalog%2Fbrowse%2Frimfire-ammunition%2F_%2FN-1100192%2FNs-CATEGORY_SEQ_104536080%3FWTz_l%3DSBC%3BMMcat104792580%3Bcat104691780&WTz_l=SBC%3BMMcat104792580%3Bcat104691780%3Bcat104536080

  3. You can get a similar set from Amazon for less than 30 bucks: http://www.amazon.com/Pachmayr-Master-Gunsmith-Firearm-Screw/dp/B00162OKWU/ref=pd_bxgy_sg_img_z
  4. I usually hunt in PA, and sometimes I would like to carry a sidearm with me. Does this mean I can do it as long as I have my NJFID, hunting license, and it is not concealed?
  5. I agree - I don't understand all the love for this. It's a pump action centerfire rifle - pure and simple. It is NOT an AR.
  6. A caveat for any of you that do a lot of international travel. If you are like me, you feel kind of naked if you don't have a pocket knife on you. Since I travel a lot, and don't check luggage, I really can't carry a knife. So I went and bought one of these: http://www.leatherman.com/831488.html A Leatherman TSA-Compliant 831488 Style PS Multitool. This means that it has no knife, but it has pliers, scissors, screwdriver, etc. For most of what I need a knife for when I travel, the scissors work just fine. Well, it made it through security in the US, Colombia, Peru, and Germany. But when I got to Mexico, it was confiscated. Apparently, the rules in Mexico are different – you are not allowed to have anything on the plane that is a “tool”. The pliers on the Leatherman qualified it as a tool, so it had to go. I started to argue, then thought of what a Mexican prison looks like, and told them to keep it. For 20 bucks it wasn't worth it. Just a word to the wise – TSA-compliant doesn't really mean anything if you are travelling outside the US.
  7. So what is a reasonable discount to expect off of a MSRP? And I'm talking about common, everyday firearms, not exotic rare range toys.
  8. I'm heading down to South Port and New Bern NC next month to look at some property. If all works out I could be out of PRNJ within 2 years. Anyone have the inside scoop, caveats, suggestions, or anything else I should know? Don't golf, so am looking for something by the beach, preferably with a marina close by.
  9. $39.99 per brick for Remington Thunderbolt (.08 per round). Not cheap, but they had quite a few bricks last night when I was in. Also lots of CCI, don't know the price.
  10. Does anyone have any experience with these? They look interesting. http://www.hideawayknife.com/main.php
  11. Yeah - I'm selling the 12 gauge and taking the Crosman out this year. It's all about shot placement...
  12. ... Can a .177 pellet rifle "Take down a deer". http://www.nj.com/hunterdon-county-democrat/index.ssf/2014/01/frenchtown_man_arrested_after_1.html NJ deer must be a buch of wussies.
  13. I usually get it at Dixon's - closer than Cabela's (but not much). Exit 40 off Rt 78. Have had no luck finding it local to me.
  14. Which holster do you use? Seems there are a few different models with conflicting reviews on Amazon.
  15. I've got the frontier model (octagon barrel), and it's become my favorite small game rifle (I hunt in PA). Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
  16. I've got a Mossberg 500 12 ga pump that I would like to use for sporting clays. I'm thinking that 100 rounds through it may be a bit much for my shoulder, so a slip-on recoil pad is probably in order. There seem to be quite a few choices - anyone have a recommendation? What should I steer clear of? Thanks!
  17. If you'd like to read a good novel about the possibility of a second shooter, try Stephen Hunter's "The Third Bullet". If you are a Stephen Hunter fan (and if you are on this board you should be), you'll enjoy this.
  18. No pics but I’ve done it (paint ball gun) by laying down a base color, and then “masking” by laying some branches with small leaves attached over the first coat and spraying that, and then doing the same for the third color. Don’t spray too close and let each color dry. Practice on a piece of cardboard until you get a pattern you like. It'll freak you out the first time you spray paint your gun (at least it did me), but if you take your time the results can be very nice.
  19. So I gave Castigo Cay a try, and I can tell you it is MUCH better written then the second 2 volumes of the "Enemies" series. He must have gotten better editors. Stephen Hunter it ain't, but it's an enjoyable read so far.
  20. This will be the first shotgun I have owned, although I have borrowed a few for trap shooting (semi auto) and deer hunting (slug gun). I also have a fair amount of experience with black powder smoothies loaded with bird shot for clays, but that's about it. Not sure about interchangeable barrels, although I know you can get a slug barrel for the 500. Would like to avoid the expense if possible.
  21. So it looks like I will soon be in the possession of a Mossberg 500 12 gauge with 28” barrel. I would like to use this for hunting this year, both Turkey and Deer. My questions are about barrel length. Most people who use slugs for deer are using guns with much shorter barrels. Any disadvantage to using the 28” barrel with slugs? Or should I use buckshot? Most of my shots will probably be 40 yards or less. Is this a good shotgun for turkey? Thanks
  22. I read the first one - not great, but OK. I downloaded the second and third for free. They are worth exactly what I paid for them.
  23. I'm impressed! There is no way I could have scored as well as I did (and still not make rifleman) using a bolt action. Got to work on my bolt skills... And yes, anything tube fed is not really going to work for an Appleseed.
  24. Nobody busts anyone’s chops, and everyone is extremely supportive. I’ve got to say I learned a lot, and the proof is in my targets at the range. My accuracy definitely improved after taking this class. On the average it takes 3 Appleseed shoots to make rifleman. I will be going again next year.
