    Cool stuff at SHOT show

    Well, for those of you lucky enough to have missed the S.H.O.T. show, here is my take on it. It has been a down year in the industry and that took it's tole on displays. Everyone and their brother, sister, dog, cat, and Peruvian water turtle for the young one, now makes an AR-15 type...

    The only comment I have is that I am very sorry that you have macular degeneration amigo! My dad had that and you have my utmost compassion! Towards the end red dots we're the only way he could shoot, but he never stopped shooting because he loved it so.

    Nah, Butler was a mean drunk, I like to drink with Hanneken, and by convention if you enlisted just 1 day after anyone they could jokingly refer to you as "boot", but I guess that tradition died out before you enlisted.

    O.P. isn't from OK. Just an example of too much manification. I never assumed that you were or weren't, but if the early 90s is what you are aluding too, All I could possibly say to that is....... what a boot.

    Whether you wish to believe it or not is really imaterial, it is a great real life example of too much magnification being detrimental. Yes the U.S.M.C. was surprised that this occurred. The area was right near a coast and the humidity was also very high, unlike the Deserts you allude to which...

    Yep, not warm! Guy,s loved the good old M-14 over the M-16 A2 because in the heat you could still grab on to a wood stock without gloves! The AR in the direct sunlight tended to need gloves to even touch....all "black and plasticy". Funny thing about mirage, the warmer it got " 118-125" the...

    On a deployment, guys had just received the cool new 10x unertil scope. Everyone loved it, HOWEVER, the area we were in had a bit of warmth and the mirage made these wonder scopes less than utile past 330 yards. If guys had had the old 3-9s they could have dialed down.....but no, bigger, better...

    It wasn't exactly harmful either if it gets the O.P. to really think about what they want. It does appear that I do in fact need more magnification on my spell check, because I can't spell that well and I trust it way too much. Perhaps a 3.5 - 20X checker???

    Au contraire, I indeed did make a point...."and you may be coming off as boreish at best", from my previous post......The point you are making for me nicely. I do shoot competitively, but that is hardly all I do and I don't identify myself in such a narrow relm. I also do quite a bit of...

    You make my point quite nicely. I never said I was a competition shooter, I said this forum is competition based. I never met Mr. Rogers, he came to.A.P.I. after I stopped teaching there when Col. Cooper sold A.P.I. to Richard Gee. Col. Cooper detested high magnification scopes....if you are...

    I never told the original poster that he didn't need anything. I pointed out that really high magnification wasn't the end all and be all and that in the grand scheme of things it wasn't necessary. I did say "I" couldn't see any use for 10x except for prairied dog. Then in response to my friend...

    And what do you suspect them of doing at 100-200 yards in faing light? Wasn't talking need, nor want, but when we start talking utilize in the confines of action shooting you really can't effectively "use" lots of excess magnification. In the confines of failing light at 100-200 yards, if you...

    Not being a young 60 years old and not being able to see iron sights any longer doesn't mean you need a 10x scope!

    I'll fix it for you, for 600 yards and in IRON SIGHTS are pleanty adequate for 4moa sized targets. The only reason I could ever see to put a 10x anything on an AR would be for Prairie Dogs.

    Cleaning for open gun comp - carbon build up

    The 50/50 mix of viniger and peroxide works about the best, but CAUSION!!!! It forms lead acitate, which is quickly absorbed by skin contact!!!! Causing high levels of lead build up.in your system, which is really bad ju-ju!! Always use rubber gloves or nitrile over when using the 50/50. And...

    Freedom ordinance

    Yes you can order them and get them sent to your hotel. I would instruct them to NOT put anything on the package that sounds like firearm, guns, ordnance...etc. Vegas is awful touchy about that kind of stuff in the hotels these days.
