Most recent build.
Found a very abused 870 SP, in nine shades of Krylon.
Said 'Nope". Offered 150.

Got it.
The stock plastic furniture was done. Bulged from the solvents, and, well, "plastic".

Found a set of hideous laminate furniture on fleabay for $15.00
I can sand this. And, it's laminate wood. basically indestructible.

Then I walked into a gun shop and said "I have $100.00 and want the shortest legal barrel I can own, for a remmy 870" *while waving five $20 dollar bills round^

Then I decided to have it refinished. The "Special Purpose" 870's were from the factory, camoflauged. nd rather well done. But the muppet before me had decided to lather this one with OD green. Since he was a motherfucking muppet, who knows.

So I paid someone 100.00 to blast the nastyness off it, and cerakote it, and two tubes, matte black.

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.

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

It's better to just buy a CZ83.
That's how big a hassle it is.

You might get the old tube out with no fuckups, and you might get the new one in as well as the old.

>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.

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 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.

This. The Army is moving toward a plastic cased ammunition for their next generation of rifles and LMGs so this is already dead in the water. It also doesn't do anything better than an AR in 5.56 as long as the barrel is at least 16 inches. You only run into problems with that cartridge and bullet when the barrel is chopped off. I am so sick of tards who fuck up a perfectly good, well-engineered product then either complain that it's badly designed or try to come up with a "fix" that is anything other than undoing their bubba-fudd hackjob.

The Mark XI was essentially a Mark IX Spitfire interceptor modified for photographic reconnaissance with cameras, a more powerful engine and a larger oil tank in the nose. All guns and armor were removed and the fuel capacity was greatly increased; speed was the unarmed Mark XI's defense. A total of 471 Mark XIs were built between April 1943 and January 1946. Great Britain and its allies flew various photo-reconnaissance versions of the Spitfire with great success in all theaters during World War II.

A total of 20,351 Spitfires of all types were eventually built, plus 2,408 Seafires modified to operate from aircraft carriers.

The U.S. Army Air Forces' 14th Photographic Squadron of the 8th Air Force operated Spitfire Mark XIs from November 1943 to April 1945, flying hazardous long-range reconnaissance missions over mainland Europe. Placed on display in 1993, this aircraft is painted as a 14th Photographic Squadron Mark XI at Mount Farm airfield in England. https://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/Visit/Museum-Exhibits/Fact-Sheets/Display/Article/196278/supermarine-spitfire-prxi/

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.

  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.

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?
