Is it winter in Alaska already?
What has happened to the discussions about guns? Is it all too much to ponder to come up with a good subject that is about guns and not about the host of a TV show or just links to u-tube or other more interesting forums?
Where has this forum gone?
How about some interesting do it your self gunsmithing, handloading, or upgrade projects. The G20 thread......how to up grade the 10 MM, thats was good. I even got my G20 out and upgraded a few parts. Cast bullets in an AR.....another good subject. And a handloading thread that isn't just hey where can I buy a Lee Factory crimp die? You know something with some meat in it.
It seems this forum is used so much as just an where can I go to get this done rather than telling us how you did it.
I thought Alaskan were self sufficient, did all that needs done when the need arrises. Is it not that way anymore?
I've withdrawn from the day to to activities here because I've had more pressing projects but would like to get back to posting about some of the things I've been working on. I did get a little tired of the orchestrated effort to discredit my work but I guess that's to be expected from some.
Let's see in the past year I've regained my Master classification in Bullseye pistol, NRA action pistol (Bianchi Cup), and USPSA/IPSC.....Other than that my pistol skills have sagged. I have made progress on my range but sadly still not complete. I've conducted a few classes and sponsored a couple shoots at my place. Oh yeah, I shot a Buffalo and Eland with my 416 and a Sable with the 375. I am getting some practice at Glock-smithing and have found the gun to be interesting but still cheap and ugly.....but very reliable.
My shooting range is located an hour south of Sierra Bullets & Starline Brass. I am 45 minutes north of the Fiocchi Ammo manufacturing facility and the nice, new indoor shooting range called The Sounds Of Freedom, located in Ozark Missouri. Hodgdon's Powder is about three hours drive away so I'm somewhat centrally located here and don't have logistic problems for components or ammo. UPS, FEDEX and the U.S. Mail deliver to my door quite often.
So much for the mundane of this world......What's new in the gun community today. Any new models, any old models worth talking about?
