    .22 Rimfire Direct From CCI & Federal

    I've been getting CCI's emails with ammo for sale. I have a major stash from when it was .04 cents per round, but it's good to see they are selling direct. Wonder what discount one could get for a pallet?

    What Type of Scope Is On Your .22 Rifle?

    My Competition .22 is in the AR platform with a Nordic NC-22 upper. It sports a red dot to get on the steel quick at the range and with a QD weapons mounted light on the forearm after the match, armadillos and other varmints in the yard at night, although I do have to use the green dot after...

    What Makes Anschutz Rifles So Expensive?

    It's a 1907 left hand shooter. All of the other rifles the Junior Club have are for right handed shooters.

    Thanks To Whomever.

    I found felt plugs on Amazon made by Tipton. Comes with a caliber specific brass jag to use with a cleaning rod. https://www.amazon.com/Tipton-Cleaning-Construction-Gunsmithing-Shooting-22/dp/B07KMXHKCD/ref=sr_1_27?dchild=1&keywords=gun%2Bcleaning%2Bfelt%2Bplugs&qid=1618279644&sr=8-27&th=1&psc=1

    Upgrade my scope

    That's a heck of a scope your looking at. Long range?

    Thanks To Whomever.

    In reality, I never shot anything other than a .410 shotgun and a JC Higgins 12 ga until going to the Army. Killed a lot of game in that time frame. The 12 ga was a loaner from an uncle that was the only gun owner other than one uncle in my democrat family that hated guns and he died right when...

    Thanks To Whomever.

    I plead guilty. Contacted the owner about starting this forum and he was agreeable. That's an interesting cleaning system you have. Can't say I've ever seen the plugs before. Is it something your making at home or commercially available? I use a bore snake on occasion, but typically don't do a...

    Your Fondest .22 Rimfire Memories

    I'm sure lots of others had great learning experiences. Sadly, they aren't on here yet.

    It Would Be Interesting If..................

    We would need to message the owner to see if he would add that forum. Just sent him a PM.

    Steel challenge pistol upgrades

    I've got a mag loader that is similar to that. Great to beat that sore thumb.

    Dang It! Ruger

    At a match a few years ago, I acquired a Nordic stock to replace the factory issued one so it would look tacticool. Finally got around to buying a rifle to fit the stock, and took it to a steel challenge match last weekend. It was embarrassing with how many FTE, and stovepipes it got. To be...

    What Makes Anschutz Rifles So Expensive?

    I can't help on the "why". I can say that the Junior Rifle Club at our range uses Anschutz rifles for the indoor shooting. The rifles are very heavy, the kids use weighted shooting vests and shoot prone. The best shooters put consistent clover leaf groups at 25 yds, sometimes closer to one hole...

    Steel challenge pistol upgrades

    We see lots of different brands at our gun club, mostly among the new players. Some old colt woodsman models, and others. If they get seriously it's Ruger and sometimes buckmarks.

    Steel challenge pistol upgrades

    The majority of pistols I see in all of the steel challenge matches are Ruger Mark III to Mark IV. Most with dots, some with muzzle brakes.

    Cleaning for open gun comp - carbon build up

    I'll have to give that mix a try. Mine are all stainless, so there won't be an issue with bluing.

    Cleaning for open gun comp - carbon build up

    What ingredients are you using in your 50/50 mix?

    New Ruger Mark IV Style

    I like my Mark III hunter with the longer barrel. The brake and forward dot keep a steady muzzle during steel challenge matches. No barrel flip from the bolt cycling.

    New Build

    Congrats on the addition to the family! Boy or Girl? Buddy has three kids. He bought each a lifetime Oklahoma fishing and hunting license and a Browning lever action .22 rifle for their birth. 2 sons and one daughter. When they hit 12 they got the the guns, and when 14 got the license. They...

    This forum is dead.

    I can only imagine. I know of a gun maker here in Ok that does checkering. Learned his craft in Belgium as an apprentice, finally gaining his title of gun maker. The engraving on receivers is also a craft that would really take patience.
