Shooting in Texas

Quick question, are there public lands or anything of the sort to go shooting at in Texas? Kind of like in nutnfancy's videos... I grew up in South Carolina with pretty much no sort of arrangement to my knowledge. I will be moving to the Del Rio area for a lil' over a year and will have some time to...

Re: AE 5.7x28mm primer observation

Word. I don't know why, but for some reason I swore I read on here that it was gonna be LF too. Good, I like being able to buy rounds with leaded primers.

Thanks guys!

Re: WTF At Least 274 American Soldiers Remains Discarded In

According to the Washington Post it didn't go too far up the chain of command and the landfill operators never knew that human remains were being dumped. But that is exactly what I am implying. Why are some of these acts not being reported any higher or why are they claimed to have not gone any hig...

AE 5.7x28mm primer observation

Interesting observation. I have two different boxes boxes of ae 5.7 sitting here. One has 12 on the head stamp the other has 13 on the head stamp. The primers look identical. I thought the new stuff was lead free and supposed to have a black colored primer? Neither box says anything about either bei...

Re: Grant's Loads

Hey Grant, I was wondering what kind of powders to use when reloading 28 grain bullets. I have blue dot for my 40 grain v-max and it works great with 6.0 grains. The powders they have at my local gun shop is longshot, hs-6, n350. I will be shooting them through a ps90 NOT an fsn, any help would be ...

NRA life membership

I graduated from college this past weekend and decided to use some of the money I received to take advantage of the excellent deal the NRA has going on life memberships. :thumb: Honestly I had not even heard of this deal until two days ago. This is the first time I have had a membership with them an...

Re: Archery stuff

I just use a longbow I made out of mostly pvc for 5 dollars. Havent measured the draw weight but it takes quite a bit to draw it. It was a pretty fun project. I need to get some decent arrows and tips.

Re: 55 grain loads?

If you guys do load blue dot behind some 55gr fmjs start at 5.5 or so please. My butthole was puckering shooting those 6gr loads in my ps90. Recoil was stiff.

Re: Reloading once too may times

I've had a case split like that on the first reload. I do not remember the charge weight but it was a decently hefty charge of blue dot behind a 55gr fmj. It only happened once so I didnt think twice about it. I have had a few .44mag factory winchester brass do that before.

Re: Opinion: miss out or avoid a gouge

What bothers me are the people who buy everything in sight NOW to go and sell for 2x what they paid when I just want to buy a fricken box of ammo so I can go to the range. That crap pisses me off.

Well, judging by the picture and Biden's recent comments, at least they are consistent. (In reference to the double barrel shotgun.... LOL)

Re: bought 5.7 ammo RECENTLY?

Me and my lady went to a LGS... was two boxes of ss197 on the shelf marked $34.99. He said they got 12 boxes in and that was the first 5.7 ammo they have seen since October. They were limiting one box per person... we obviously each bought a box. They also had a white site ps90 on consignment there ...

I didn't because I just cannot bring my self to pay that much for watered down blue box ss195 when last time i bought ss195 it was white box for 18 dollars or so... the good ole d...

Re: Ban Gun-Free Zones to Halt Mass Shootings

Waste of time or not, I signed it. I am going to type up a letter to send my congressman (who is a hardcore liberal, so that letter will probably not even get acknowledged) and my Senators. This will be my first time writing them, does anyone have any sample letters or anything like that?
