    Dry fire M4?

    She's hawking coupons. Probably thinks that full auto is when your car is at it's capacity...
  2. Not necessarily. There was lengthy debate on here a while back from mech. engineers, and such that stated that a spring does not lose life from being under tension. I can't answer that with a qualified response. But hopefully, someone will chime in on the subject. I personally drop the hammer. (Dryfire)..
  3. Very nice, Tucker. He is another good one. That is the smokeless powder Savage, I presume. Heard a lot of good about them. Well done, my friend. Backstraps on the bar-b...Mike
  4. If your gun is shooting high, as some do, mine included, put the thickest shim in place. That will lower the POI. The left and right thing, dunno. I put the thickest shim in, and added a Champion Easy Hit sight also. They are a tad taller, and this will help as well..Good luck..Mike
  5. I think what they are saying is, without physically pushing the shell drop lever, if the red dot is seen, it is cocked. If it is not seen, it is un-cocked, by normal loading and unloading. Remember, it is only a shell drop, period.
  6. I don't own a M4 or a M2, but I do own several SBE's, two Legacys, a Vinci and two Novas. The lever on the side, with the red dot on it, on the semi-autos, is a cartridge drop lever. If the chamber is emptied by hand, it will not reload another shell into the chamber, unless this lever is pushed. It allows a shell to drop out of the magazine and onto the carrier. It does not decock the gun, it simply allows a shell out of the mag. If you simply push the cartridge drop lever and pull the trigger without taking the shell out of the chamber, it will shoot every time. Unload the gun completely, and dry fire it if you don't want to store it cocked..Hope this helps..Mike

    Dry fire M4?

    Sourdough and Duggan are right on. Centerfires can be dry fired until your blue in the face. No harm done. Rimfires are a different story, and Sourdough hit it squarely on the head, the reason why. Just make sure the chamber is empty. Otherwise, they go boom...Mike
  8. Nice pictures, Steve. Looks like you've been busy. How do you like the new shootin' iron. Seems to be treating you well. I know it requires less attention in the bad weather. Also wanted to thank you for your years of service, protecting people like me, on this veterans day..Mike God Bless the Veteran...

    Veterans Day

    I'm with you, Hookster. Everything we have is because of the vets that protected this fine nation. Go out of your way tomorrow to thank a vet. If I was king, the only people off of work tomorrow would be the veterans, with pay, of course..I too, would like to thank and honor those on this Forum that are serving or have served. God Bless you all...Mike
  10. I'm not at all familiar with the blacktail. From what I've seen on western states hunting shows, the one you've got there is a monster. Well done, my friend..
  11. That is a brute, Mudhen. Is he a whitetail? Looks like it. Where did you get him? Ca.? He is tall and wide, for sure. Too bad those brow tines were not a little bigger. He still is a stud..
  12. First of all, I would use the cyl. choke tube rather than the imp. mod. The more open the choke, the better. Second, make sure you are shooting ball slugs of some sort, not the sabots. Third, I would sight this in on a bench or solid rest so you know exactly where it is shooting. Fourth, You may need some sort of sighting device, i.e. a conventional scope, red dot, or just plain open sights. Shotguns are not known to be tack drivers out of the box. You may have to work a little bit to figure out how to get the gun to shoot close enough to point of aim so that you can hit a deer with it. Smoothbore shotguns can be fairly accurate up to 100 yards, but you will have to do some homework. As far as the rifled/slug barrel, you won't be finding that on ebay. They are anti-gun, big time..Gun Broker may be your best bet, but they are not cheap, anywhere. Hope this helps some. Good luck, hey..Mike
  13. Well done. He is a nice little six. Should be a tasty little bugger..
  14. Way to go,Tucker. Those are some nice looking bucks. I guess you could say that you had a pretty good day! Bow kills, I assume?..Mike
  15. She sure is purdy. I have seen her twin sister and they are both keepers. Very nice gun. Congrats on the purchase..Mike
  16. They're out there. Did you try Primos' website? Cabelas carries them. If all fails, Google it , you,ll find somebody that carries them..Mike
  17. Me too..It's a little more to pay for a few extra amenities. I have one of each, and like them both.
  18. Good luck selling it. I am not in the market for one, thanks..
  19. Maybe it's this one.. http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=196677213
  20. It should shoot those loads untill the cows come home..Keep the rails oiled, shoot a couple of boxes of heavier loads first, and you may be surpised at how it handles a load like that. Should be no problemo..Enjoy..Mike
  21. Danged if that don't look like Hognutz's new partridge swatter.
  22. Nice bird, KB. Looks like she took a load to the neck. What is your gun/shell/choke combo? Good luck on the getting more, part..Mike
  23. This is the ''going a little too far'' part. He has been known to hunt over the ''golden kernels'' more often than not. I still believe that he is good for gun owners, even though his hunting tactics could use a little shoring up..
  24. That's been around for awhile. It is classic Ted. He is a good thing for gun owners, although, sometimes he goes a little too far. I enjoy watching and listening to him..Uncle Ted rocks!!..Mike
