I already own 3 .45s (SA 1911, M&P Midsize, Shield 45) and reload for it. Mags aren't too pricey and easy to come by. I see mixed reviews on the trigger but it would be something different in the collection. Thoughts for the price?

Decided to buy one of these through Aim. Arriving at my FFL on Monday. I finally decided on trying a 9mm carry gun. I'm unfortunately limited to 10 round mags instead of the factory 12, but MecGar makes 10s and relativity cheap on eBay. Not Magpul GL9 levels of cheap, but good enough for my now low budget.

Any recommendations on holsters? Also how can I tell if I need to replace the recoil spring?

  The good:
- Pistol shooting was on point
- Shootan with the homies, having a good time
- I was RSO with a pretty good squad
- No penalties

The bad:
- Forget how to hold-over for the rifle (derped on the rifle-clay part by holding low... should be holding high inside of 50 yards)

The ugly:
- My nemesis: The Roof Prop

The night before I was deciding if I should wear shorts or pants. The "feels like temperature" ended up being 97'F, so I brought shorts. After my encounter with the roof prop, I was walking around wondering why my leg hurt a little. Minor road rash.

You may have fumbled with the rifle clays, but you sure made it up with the poppers on the next stage. Good job mayne
>> No. 109130 ID: 9dcda2
Thanks dude. I did a bunch of pistol dry fire practice the day before, and it really paid off. One thing, on that last stage with the steel shooting gallery, I could actually feel the difference in weight and recoil as my magazines emptied. I basically counted off the last 3 rounds before the slide locked back. Never noticed that before. Shit happens when you're in "the zone".

Regarding dry practice, when I was practicing with the pistol I was focusing on my grip and trigger pull... to the microscopic level.

- More tension on the ring and pinky fingers
- Get the beavertail centered into the web of the hand
- The force from the trigger pull is between the first knuckle of the finger and the middle of the web of the hand...

One other thing I practiced the day before was left shoulder rifle handling, including loading the rifle, and reaching behind my back to get the magazine on my left hip. That went so well at 1:28 in the video it's hardly noticeable.

If you've got a long drive, check out the Primary and Secondary modcast on Tactical Gamers. They're a bunch of MIL/LEO guys who got into competitive shooting to grow as shooters. One of the things they discuss is that competitive shooting does wonders for your "processing speed", and how instinctual handling of the gun frees your mind to process your situation and surroundings.

Ernest Langdon is on the modcast and describes his first USPSA grand master win. He said it was the slowest run he's ever had. Then when they read the time, he beat everyone. But in his mind, everything was in slow motion.

  A while ago we had a thread about high-speed photography and such. I think my friend and I took some curious pictures today, not sure how interesting they will be, but it was enlightening to learn what a DSLR could do in this kind of situation.

The camera in question is an Olympus E-510 with a Zuiko 14-58 F2.8 lens, a little dated and nothing special to begin with. In the midday sun, we were able to get a fast enough shutter to be able to capture bullets. Because of how these kinds of shutters function, the bullets are still quite blurry and faint but they're still visible.

Video is related to explain how the shutters typically work, to explain why the bullets weren't exactly as crisp as one would expect from shutter speeds of 1/4000th of a second, and why they're blurry in a slightly asymmetrical way due to a "rolling shutter" effect.

Also these guys shooting a giggle-switched AR-15 was adorable, great footage as well.

How hard would it be to rebarrel my CZ82 in 32ACP assuming I can get an appropriate CZ83 barrel? I know I would need a hydraulic press but I gave one now so I’m curious what other tools I would need

Bigger bullet for more mass.


> consider the supersonic ranges of the three cartridges. This particular .243 Winchester load drops below the speed of sound around 1,150 yards, but the 6mm Creedmoor stays supersonic out until around 1,375 yards and the 6.5 Creedmoor doesn’t cross the sound barrier until around 1,450 yards.

6.5 CM will stay supersonic longer and is less affected by wind. But as always, everything is a compromise. 6.5 CM is a good tradeoff between velocity, bullet weight, ballistic coefficient (BC), felt recoil, and barrel life. You can drive a bullet faster with a super bottlenecked cartridge, but it will burn out barrels.

> I dunno how they want to penetrate modern ceramic plates with anything that a grunt can reasonably carry tho.

Yeah, then there's that problem. Although new types of bullets may do a better job.

That's still 6.5 and not 6.8 tho, why does the Army want 6.8 specifically? And why enlarge the diameter and not make the bullet longer? Would help with sectional density too.

> That's still 6.5 and not 6.8 tho, why does the Army want 6.8 specifically?

That I don't know. I used 6.5 CM as an example because it's really popular and I've shot it like twice. (I'm not a PRS guy.)

> And why enlarge the diameter and not make the bullet longer? Would help with sectional density too.

6.5 CM already has really long bullets and still fits into a .308 overall length.

Check this out, what do you think, guys?
Maybe cobalt-alloy barrels are actually coming.

Apparently our weaponmakers are also working on it https://foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com/this-russian-company-plans-a-sniper-rifle-that-can-fire-1829496377

Also, wouldn't it be great to have a squeezebore high velocity pistol. It can be smoothbore too given the ranges pistols are normally used at, so cheaper and with higher barrel life.

But surface area increases as the pellet burns if it's cylindrical and is burned from inside.
>> No. 109079 ID: e56201
Still not as much surface area as normal granules. Really, why would they make it the way you're suggesting? What's the advantage?
>> No. 109080 ID: b2b3ad
More powder in the same volume, convenient to reload.
>> No. 109086 ID: e56201
It's only convenient to reload if you're only loading one bullet weight in one cartridge. It's less convenient when you have to buy a different pellet for every cartridge and powder charge. How would you even work up a load, buy a whole pack of pellets in every increment just to test a few? And you'd basically have to abandon bottleneck cartridges. And it would still burn slower due to surface area.
>> No. 109087 ID: 6affc4
I dunno, it seems like a great option for handloading, instead of having to load with a scale you just stick the right pellet and do he rest. And isn't slow burning powder beneficial for many loads? As for bottleneck cartridges, i thought you open the case up before reloading anyway, if you don't, then yeah, it's not worth it of course.

How a Texas plumber's truck wound up in ISIS' hands
Texas plumber Mark Oberholtzer has had to contend with tough clogs in his business, but probably none so formidable as to require use of a Soviet-made anti-aircraft gun.
After a jihadi in Syria tweeted a photo of a 23 mm twin-barreled autocannon mounted on a truck Oberholtzer used to own, it was his muddied reputation that needed repair.
“When that photo got tweeted and then circulated across the world, you knew pretty well that if you needed to get some plumbing done with an anti-aircraft gun in the back of ... the truck, maybe you ought to call ‘Mark-1 Plumbing,’ which is not what he intended,” said Robert Wilonsky, digital managing editor for the Dallas Morning News
It would seem Oberholtzer’s truck made the same journey many potential jihadis from the US make to get to Syria — largely through Turkey.
Oberholtzer is suing a Houston car dealership where he traded in the truck in October 2013. He's seeking more than $1 million in damages after the 2005 Ford F-250, which sold at auction the following month, was shipped to Turkey with decals still affixed. The truck eventually ended up in Syria, where it was outfitted with an anti-aircraft gun and used in the country’s civil war.
The truck, emblazoned with the name and phone number of Oberholtzer’s business, was featured in a tweet Dec. 15, 2014. It was first tweeted by the extremist group Ansar al-Deen. The next day, the photo was used in the closing segment of Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report.” It also happened to be the show’s final episode, pulling in almost 2.5 million viewers, the largest audience in the show’s history. https://www.pri.org/stories/2015-12-15/how-texas-plumbers-truck-wound-isis-hands

Sup, I'm going to be repairing this lower which had a third hole drilled for an illegal sear conversion. I need it to be able to survive an ATF inspection. It's a classic Colt lower, so trashing it is out of the question. I've watched many videos showing how to repair the hole, and I think I've got a workable solution.

I'm hasgun again, but not the one I want. My k-frame is gone. Somewhere between my idiot sister-in-law and her idiot baby daddy, that one was "lost." Fuck, I hope someone pawned it. Better than losing a fucking firearm.
Anyway, the one returned to me was my back-up/fuck around piece, a Jimenez Arms .22 I purchased new a few years ago. It didn't work that well. I took it to the factory (they're close), they worked on it, and surprise! No difference! From what I've read online, the thing to do is sand and polish the innards, and I figured that's worth trying, but a lot of variables there. What grit should I use? Should I just use steel wool? What kind of polishing compound? Feed ramp and slide rails of course, but anywhere else I should hit? Seems like it could be a fun little project, and if I completely fuck the thing, who gives a shit? It's a Jimenez.
