    Nope!

    the pin did not touch the primer. I decocked the bolt immediately after and the pin fully extended.Guess I have to look at the trigger-safety situation as someone has suggested. The search goes on :)...

    There was a time in America

    when every state had institutions for people who could not function in society, and those who couldn't be trusted. So, they were expensive to run and some folks believed them to be cruel and...

    During the winter I decided I wanted some higher rings for my HBR type rifles, ( Rem 700's). I'm in the experimental stages of my BR life now so I found low end stuff to work with, being on a fixed...

    I had this issue

    with a couple of Handi Rifles I had years ago. The overhanging base would bend with each shot, never mind leaning the rifle against something. Neither one of them shot well enough to keep so...

    Wonder why

    Burris quit making these lovely scopes or any of the companies that made light weight variable scopes for that matter? I just had to trade in a Sightron 6-24 that was light weight enough for a...

    Many of us

    did not grow up in a world of computers. There were no computers in my world until the Commodore we go to rate Auto insurance in the middle or late 80's so there are two worlds of people here, mebby...

    The Government

    knows everything about everybody so there is no point thinking otherwise. It's silly to think otherwise.

    I based my decision on risk:

    I felt the risk for me to not take the vaccine and die if I contracted Covid19 outweighed taking it so I got it as early as I could. Regarding Our esteemed immunologist, He should have retired long...

    Interesting

    I stand corrected. I didn't know Eley owned it. Wouldn't make a lot of difference. Likely, there are still no members or an organization for members to hold to task. Not a lot different than...

    There is never any point

    in complaining about rules. If one doesn't like them, don't participate. I've done my share of complaining in the past so I know from where I speak. If ya don't like the rules, don't play. The...

    I have a cousin

    who has one of those Savage MK II's that shoots with our custom rifles. A good custom will beat his but he shoots 250's outdoors with it. He would do very well on the Factory target. Very...

    Well,

    I haven't

    I didn't know there was any difference. I haven't looked at the rules in a few years.

    Pretty darned amazing

    I'd be thinking this feat has never been accomplished with the very best custom built rifles. I read the results on ARA's website and it happened, for true. 23 HOF points.

    I'm familiar with 52's

    Personally, I don't see any reason a 52 wouldn't qualify if it's old enough but I can see why they don't allow them. They are looking at today's dollars. I met a fellow at an ARA indoor shoot years...

    What one finds

    with "Factory" classes is folks keep buying and trading factory guns until they find one that will win matches. Been there, done that. There has to be rules that limit an equipment race, to some...
