#256065 What's your fun gun?

Posted by dennishoddy on 15 January 2019 - 07:10 PM

My how things have changed since this post was started. Box of bulk 550 round federal .22 RF ammo was going for $100 a box at gun shows and they couldn't keep it in stock. 

Now it's easy to find at .04 cents a round.  Recently bought CCI .22 mag in 50 round boxes for $5. 

I'm stocking it deep. Never get caught with out .22 RF ever again. 

#256062 Is it Legal in Oklahoma?

Great info guys!
Appreciate the discussion.

#256059 Is it Legal in Oklahoma?

Posted by dennishoddy on 13 January 2019 - 03:10 PM

What Rick said. The barrel length on the shockwave-style shotguns is under 18 inches. So it's a felony because it doesn't include "intended to be fired from the shoulder" or "having a stock" or anything similar in the definition like under the NFA. Under that definition, the Taurus Judge is illegal too. Even all 9mm, 40, and 45 pistols would be illegal if the snakeshot you can buy at walmart "may reasonably be expected to be able to cause lethal injury." Under the NFA, shotguns are defined to include "intended to be fired from the shoulder," which the shockwave-style shotguns clearly aren't. See 26 USC 5845.

21 OS 1289.18:


A. "Sawed-off shotgun" shall mean any firearm capable of discharging a series of projectiles of any material which may reasonably be expected to be able to cause lethal injury, with a barrel or barrels less than eighteen (18) inches in length, and using either gunpowder, gas or any means of rocket propulsion.

B. "Sawed-off rifle" shall mean any rifle having a barrel or barrels of less than sixteen (16) inches in length or any weapon made from a rifle (whether by alteration, modification, or otherwise) if such a weapon as modified has an overall length of less than twenty-six (26) inches in length, including the stock portion.

C. Every person who has in his possession or under his immediate control a sawed-off shotgun or a sawed-off rifle, whether concealed or not, shall upon conviction be guilty of a felony for the possession of such device, and shall be punishable by a fine not to exceed One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00), or imprisonment in the State Penitentiary for a period not to exceed two (2) years, or both such fine and imprisonment.

D. It is a defense to prosecution under this section, if the approved application form that authorized the making or transfer of the particular firearm to the defendant, which indicates the registration of the firearm to said defendant pursuant to the National Firearm's Act, is introduced.

26 USC 5845:


The term “shotgun” means a weapon designed or redesigned, made or remade, and intended to be fired from the shoulder and designed or redesigned and made or remade to use the energy of the explosive in a fixed shotgun shell to fire through a smooth bore either a number of projectiles (ball shot) or a single projectile for each pull of the trigger, and shall include any such weapon which may be readily restored to fire a fixed shotgun shell.

I was under the understanding that the Taurus Judge an using snake shot in pistols was legal because of the rifled barrels. The Judge is not a smooth bore.

Your reasoning sounds perfectly logical to me! [emoji106]

whats “odd” is that the city attorney who is a lawyer told you to contact a lawyer about the very thing he should be in charge of.....city ordinances.

At this moment we are planning on having our monthly match this Saturday. Expect 8 stages and around 175 rounds.
Sign up should start at 8:40 and rounds should start going down range shortly after 9:00.
At the moment there is a 100% chance of rain Friday and 30% on Saturday morning. Once we see the forecast Thursday, we will announce setup time for Friday.

#256004 Best scope choice?

Posted by dennishoddy on 30 December 2018 - 12:05 AM

Well, I like magnification because my old eyes are having issues. Macular eye degeneration sucks. I can tune my scopes to the issues as they flux. I have to take a needle in the eye every 5 weeks now to suppress it, and each injection changes the focal point of the eye for the next 5 weeks. 

Irons no longer in the equation for shooting competitively or in hunting situations. Red dots have taken over for close range out to 100 yds, and magnification beyond. I've taken game over 500 yards, and steel at 1100 yards so long distance isn't something I'm not familiar with. 

In the past I've attended the National matches at Camp Perry as part of the military and have seen some amazing shooters with irons and scopes out to the 1000 yard mark in matches. Amazing shooters. 

Shooting irons accurately at long range requires an immense amount of practice and skill on top of the other variables involved in long range shooting, wind, humidity, temperature, etc. Anyone versed in that skill gets my nod as a very skilled shooter. 

That being said, I don't see a lot of current sniper pics without a scope involved, and I'm not versed in what level of magnification they are using, but they appear in the pics to be at minimum of a 50MM objective.

I'm of the opinion that if you are expert enough to shoot irons at long distance do so. If magnification is what you require, do so. 

It shouldn't resolve into a pissing contest. (I have to say that because I'm a mod.) 

My opinions are my own, so please proceed with the discussion and feel free to comment on my comments.  :triniti:

#255979 bargain scope around $200?

Posted by dennishoddy on 24 December 2018 - 10:51 AM

I’m almost exclusively A Nikon user. Mostly the Monarch line, but I do have a pathfinder on my Savage smokeless muzzle loader that has brutal recoil. Good glass and Nikon does maintain a no fault lifetime warranty that I’ve used in the past. $10 to cover shipping and they either fix or replace.

#255968 Who has a Laser?

Posted by dennishoddy on 22 December 2018 - 09:02 PM

Haven't shot it for 3-4 weeks. I have put 10,540 rounds through it so far. 1100 rounds of Federal Aluminum & the rest in Brass. ZERO problems.
Siggy is one tough little gun.
Target is from last month slow & rapid fire.


That's a heck of a round count. Impressive actually. Your ammo distributor must have you on their short list of those to answer the phone no matter what! :o
