I just returned from my first IPSC Shotgun match, the Shotgun World Shoot in France where I placed atleast above last place. Anyone else here with who actually shoot matches in IPSC/USPSA/2-Gun/3-Gun or similar?

So I actually ended up getting second place in the Tac Optics division of a local area monthly comp.

Discovered the following

-115gr doesn't really work on plates well
-115gr has a greater rise than 147gr
-people overlook height over bore a lot
-people will put their body pressure on a bare ass barrel and wonder why they aren't making hits
-pistol lamps don't throw very well even on AR pistols
-brakes and comps are generally shit at dissipating gases at night
-people scoff at pressure pads are generally the same people who use constant on while shooting
-those same people also have lamps that turn off and on via recoil, so they have to shoot twice to get back on target
-getting whiteout over your optic doesn't mean keep shooting
-usually a handgun falling out will only DQ a single person per match, because everyone else will go back to their cars for some reason and produce screwdrivers for some reason
-there aren't ever enough people to help with set up or tear down

Got it brand new in 2016, it's a 583-series. Haven't tested it properly in a bench.

We had not one, not two, BUT THREE people insisting on taking their IPSC safety course with 1911s in .45 this weekend. Had to do the course with less reps total of each exercise, because Team Boomer had to load their mags so often. It's still fun as hell seeing the one guy who shoots .45 good, and watching those big ass buckets almost give the RO a concussion when the brass hits him.

I don't think it counts but I've been considering getting into NRA Smallbore Pistol. The black part of the target with the scoring rings is 3 1/16" across and you shoot standing unsupported, one handed, duellist point stance, from 50 feet, against a timer.

I think I need to up my skills a bit further before trying that, though I can hold the X-ring in a B27 (2" wide by 3" tall) 80%+ of the time at 30 feet. I'd feel better about it if I were more consistent, but I keep getting in a hurry, jerking the trigger, etc. and yanking about one in five out as far as the 9-ring.

...this is with a Ruger Mk III 22/45 with irons that's stock except for Hogue rubber grips. I've got a stainless Hunter Model with all VQ innards but I don't shoot it nearly as much because I don't want to get spoiled by a two-pound trigger with almost all the reset and takeup dialed out of it. I start off slow and then move up to about one round a second after I warm up, then the last few mags I expend practicing fast head shots, in the hopes that the important parts will transfer over to centerfire handguns. I haven't been to the range in months, though, between the Wu Flu lockdowns and some more recent health problems that have appeared.

Just had a cute girl demo this system for me this past weekend.
Tried the system out both for dry fire and holster draw, and it seemed pretty useful.

450 Bushmaster: Extraordinary Large Bore Cartridge
Because this cartridge was specifically designed with the AR-15 platform in mind, it easily fits single stacked in a standard AR-15 magazine with a single shot follower. Therefore, a 10-round AR-15 magazine body will contain 5 rounds and a 20-round AR-15 magazine body will contain 9-rounds whereas, a 30-round magazine body will contain 13 rounds.

So, with a muzzle velocity of 2,100 fps to 2,200 fps, the .450 Bushmaster is certainly not a slow cartridge and, with a 250 grain or 260 grain bullet delivering 2,800 ft/lbs of kinetic energy at the muzzle, it is absolutely devastating on impact! Therefore, it is no wonder that this cartridge has become so popular among military Special Forces personnel as well as medium and large game hunters who prefer the AR-15 platform since it has the power needed to instantly stop enemy soldiers wearing standard body armor as well as both large and dangerous game species at relatively long ranges. https://ammosquared.com/450-bushmaster-extraordinary-large-bore-cartridge/

Back in the Great Depression, guys would get a carton of the old paper shotshells, pry open the front, and pour out the shot. Then they'd take a big fat steel ball bearing--one they'd checked to make sure it would fit down the shotgun's bore, first, of course--wrapped it in paper to reduce its contact with the sides of the bore and try to hold it sort of centered, and put that in the shell. Then they'd re-crimp it and seal it with candle wax.

Guys with hungry families killed a whole hell of a lot of whitetail deer with these and bigger animals than that. Is it especially accurate? No. But it was good enough for those close-in shots in brush country and thick softwood forests.
>> No. 109722 ID: 0d01d8
1. obtain cheap 12 gauge skeet loads with one ounce lead shot in bulk
2. pry open crimps, pour shot into lead melting pot
3. cast in .662" diameter roundball mold, making one ounce slugs
4. drop slug into shotcup, cutting off shotcup petals if necessary for fit
5. corrugated cardboard spacers over top of slug to hold it in place may help consistency of ignition
6. re-crimp
7. ??????

This will not be a full power load, obviously, and may not operate a semiauto shotgun, though if you have the ability to disassemble and reassemble shotgun shells, and access to appropriate powders and a powder measure, there's plenty of load data out there.


Round ball shot from a smoothbore barrel like the typical shotgun may or may not give decent accuracy, depending on what you're going to do. Rule of thumb with these is that if you can get five to stay into 4" or 5" at fifty yards, that's good enough for whitetail deer in heavy brush country. Rule of thumb is 7" to 10"+ groups at fifty yards until you find the recipe the gun likes, if it likes any of them.

Yep there's all sorts of ways of doing cheap slugs but no way to get Federal 1oz Magnum 2 3/4" slugs for cheap. Even my wholesale cost up here is just bullshit. No matter, I picked up some full brass shells a while ago and I want to see if I can get this thing to cycle homebuilt gyrojet rounds with a stiff "booster" to get it out the barrel.

>weird shit stuffed down big 'oles
Some of you might remember that time I made taste the rainbow a supersonic reality. Cheap slug-like things go without saying, there's wax slugs, cut shells, birdshot "replacement", and literally Taefloedermoaus or whatever the fuck he's called on youtube, if it fits he's sent it.

No doubt if that story is true they were using worn out or stolen ball bearings, but the idea of using a precision ground steel bearing because it's cheaper than a cast piece of lead is hilarious.

The best source for movie guns is the imfdb, the Internet Movie Firearms Database.
The following weapons were used in Season 1 of the television series Westworld:

And for Westworld Season 2: http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Westworld_-_Season_2

The closest thing to your space gun seems to the FN P90 TR because of the forward trigger guard (with the forward grip hacked away with yours) and the round magazine carousel behing the transparent box magazine laying on top.

The Westworld QA security force continue to carry customized red and black FN P90 TRs as their weapon of choice in the series. Several characters, including Maeve (Thandie Newton), Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood), William (Ed Harris) and Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) use P90s throughout the season. Black FN P90s are also among the weapons used by Delos military contractors.
- Maeve (Thandie Newton) carries the P90 in "Journey Into Night" (S2E01).

Bats is right that the P90 is the closest thing as that looks to be a non-gun prop made from(most likely) an airsoft P90.

No I had to. I went back to live in Germany for a few years. No way could I take my stuff with me. I put four in storage (my P88 being one. Never parting with it) and just left. I had to get clean.

I miss our emails. Im glad your still around. I have missed you. You were always a rock.

I guess in my situation a Glock 17, A Walther P88, a 1911, and an LR-300. Because that's all I have.

I would feel better if I had an M4 again and an AK74. Mine was a Saiga Legion and 5.45 is really the better caliber.

Wouldn't mind a FAL for nostalgia and another P226 but guns are kinda back burner right now.

My ideal list would be:
-M4 Carbine with an ACOG or Red dot
-AK74 no optic

The P88 is a very good pistol from the 1980s.
The Walther P88 is highly prized among collectors and sport shooters due to its superb accuracy (40 to 50 mm [1.5 to 2 in] groups at 20 m [25 yd]) and high-quality construction. But the standard P88 was heavily criticized for being bulky, heavy and expensive; the Compact version solved none of these issues. High-quality German pistols don't come cheap, you proles!

Nepalese Kukri, Antique
A seldom encountered example of a true Nepalese Kukri, crafted for use by one of the various Hill Tribes. Originally the basic utility knife of the Nepalese People, the Kukri was brought to the worlds attention by the various Gurka Regiments of the British and Indian Armies.
This example was crafted for use. The carved wood scabbard with rattan binding suggest that it was probably a Tribal piece. The curved blade is in ver good condition, The blade was well cared for and is free of rust, the incise carved pattern still clear. The carved bone hilt is capped with an ebony disk. The lower binding on the scabbard is missing as are the small tools normally found.
The blade is 11" in length and the knife is 15" overall.

The bolt on CROWS systems are exactly as you described them. I hadn't heard of any LAV turrets being put onto a Humvee and I doubt that guy was telling you the truth. There isn't enough space to put that on there plus the wiring would be too much for a mechanic team to just drop everything else and get done correctly. I could see putting a 25mm on a Humvee and I've seen M134 miniguns put into Humvee turrets, but a full blown LAV turret?

There were some awesome frankentrucks out there in the early years of the war. Ive seen HEMTT and LMTV guntrucks that were so heavily armored and well built that they proved to be more useful than the purpose built APCs in our AO. For a while, we really thought the Army & Marines we're going to start putting them together in the states but they went with the MRAPs instead. Having played with both, I really preferred the frankentrucks.

At one point in Afghanistan, the local jingletrucks were being ambushed and robbed by insurgents so we decorated a small convoy of LMTVs with painted bedsheets and Christmas lights and started using those to draw out the attackers. They looked convincing at night and worked great.
