    Advice needed - Finding the right ammo

    "I'm not sure if I'm shooting from benchrest, but I am seated and resting the rifle on a bench. I am not locking it into a vise or anything like that. No sandbags either because I don't have any available." First learn how to shoot from a bench. There is more to it than just resting the rifle on the bags and pulling the trigger. Do not rest the rifle on the bench. Get some bags and learn how to use them. Are the action screws tight? Are the scope mount screws all tight. Are the scopes good? Are the bores copper fouled, badly pitted, or rusted? Are the muzzle crowns damaged? Check these things and then try shooting groups again, most modern factory ammo will shoot fine but some will be better in you rifles.

    Florida constitutional amendment

    If passed the Florida Constitution would be amended to outlaw most if not all semi auto, pump, and lever action firearms, anything that can hold more than 7 rounds.. It would also outlaw any weapon classified as a sniper rifle. (Anything with a scope) Direct Quote form the proposal. "No other person entering or residing in the State shall possess any weapon or firearm that functions like or has the capacity of a military style weapon. Military style weapon means any gun with a magazine capacity of more than seven rounds of ammunition or any weapon capable of firing in fully automatic mode, any weapon capable of being modified in any manner to fire in a fully automatic mode or any weapon classified as a sniper rifle." https://ballotpedia.org/Florida_Ban_on_Military-Style_Firearms_and_Disqualifications_for_Firearm_Possession_Initiative_(2020)

    Your Garands

    Bob It will be one of the very last guns I would sell. I will be passing it on to family.

    Your Garands

    My first Garand bought in 1978 when I was County Sheriff. A 1954 International Harvester. Local Highway Patrolman got one at the same time, also an IHC. I found out later they came from South America. Mine is mostly all IHC parts including the stock. Seemed like a lot of money at the time for a newly married 28 year old making $750 a month.

    Cell phone signal booster???

    Verizon sent us a free booster after multiple complaints. Just one problem it requires 10MB internet service to work. We might get 2.5MB on a good day. We can see the cell tower about 5 miles away. We used to have really good service from them up until about 2 years ago, it keeps getting worse. I think equipment at the tower is going bad but we live in a rural area with few customers so there is no incentive to repair or improve service.

    Illinois Gun Dealers getting squeezed

    I just finished reading the three book series by Kurt Schlichter People's Republic Indian Country & Wildfire Fiction about the Red Blue civil war. Sadly a lot of what is in the books is coming true. The Green New Deal for example.

    Olay Superbowl Ad

    This is one of the stupidest ad's I have ever seen. In a large part of the county the killer would have been blown away when he kicked in the bedroom door. If not before. With or without a weapon.

    Check your heat!

    We shut the water off any time we are going to be gone overnight or longer. A leak can happen any time. Doesn't take much of a leak to cause significant damage. Just a quarter turn on a ball valve in the basement. My feeling is an ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure every time.

    Types of firearms legislation being introduced

    Red Flag Laws. Lost or stolen firearm reporting. Gun owner liable for misuse of stolen gun. Open carry restrictions. All I can think of for now.

    What about the Marijuana Felons

    Found guilty of a federal felony for buying a suppressor that was legal under Kansas law. Why are the Feds not prosecuting all the federal felonies committed in the States where marijuana is legal under State law. https://gunowners.org/gun-owners-of-america-funds-challenge-to-national-firearms-act-in-u-s-supreme-court.htm

    Blizzard of January 2019

    Hate to disagree but this is not a blizzard. There is a huge difference between a blizzard and a snow storm. A blizzard is when the wind is blowing 30-40 mph for the entire time it is snowing and you end up with 6-10 foot drifts. This is just a nice level snow. We had around 10" of a nice level snow here in NW Kansas which we seldom get. Our snow normally comes with wind. This snow didn't even close any roads. Last week 4" with 30mph winds closed roads all over the area.

    New wonder

    They are probably using some form of polypropylene underlayment. Around here a common brand is called Titanium. Way tougher than felt paper and easier work with. It is grey in color. It does not have to cure. Put it down and shingle right over it. Not a lot of roofing felt (tar paper) used on roofs around here anymore.

  19. It looks like NJ Police officers are going to have to leave their magazines at work. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2018/12/15/former-nyc-police-commissioner-njs-high-capacity-magazine-ban-endangers-officers/ Or they can do what the rest of NJ residents are doing and ignore the law. https://www.ammoland.com/2018/12/new-jersey-magazine-ban-goes-into-effect/#axzz5Zr7Xqn6M

    Broad Gun Control Restrictions Are Not the Answer. Just Look at These Facts.

    Well written, but sadly it will never see the light of day in the mainstream media.

    CMP 1911

    Thanks a million for the offer. I sent you a PM with the serial number of the Remington.

    CMP 1911

    Bob One of mine was a Colt Frame and slide the other I thought was an Ithica but according to the serial number it was a Remington frame with an Ithica slide.

    CMP 1911

    Gambler the half moon discoloration is where the slide was spot hardened at the slide stop notch. The spot really shows up on refinished slides. I have not received my random number yet. One in a million shot that one of the two 1911a1s I was issued would be available if I am lucky enough to get a chance to buy one. CMP stated early on that if you knew the serial number and it was available you would be able to purchase it. I know the serial numbers on mine because I still have the arms room receipts for them.

    Can you live in New York City and compete in SASS with your own Handguns? I don't think so after reading the permit requirements for handguns. Basically if you live in NYC you can only have your handgun in your house or take it to a range in NYC. You can hunt with it in NY State with a permit from the Wildlife Dept. You can not take your handgun out of state for any reason. Can anyone from NY let me know where I am wrong?
