Im not a big fan of 1911 style guns but that looks freakin bad ass.


There is reliability and capacity issues there, but they are a joy to shoot.

I just don't get the guy's who walk around saying "I carry a full size 1911" like they are well-armed when there's only 9 rounds in the gun.


No doubt, especially when the gun with 17 round capacity is $500+ cheaper.

On a seperate note, I just watched this


That is one mean looking gun.

Edit: looks like something you would mount a chainsaw on instead of a bayonet like Gears of War.

What do you guys shoot at the range?

I wasted an empty Guinness can this weekend in honor of our Irish friend in another thread. No organics at my range, so potatoes are out, but bottles with water, just water, are fine. I'm tired of bottles, lol.

I was thinking:
Golf balls
Old action figures the boy doesn't play with anymore

What else? I'm not creative


In other news, I might come into a Remington 700 later this month... Pretty excited about it. Should cost me no cash, just need the optic.

Well, if I'm at my buddy's house out in the woods, we've been shooting at an old water heater he's got. We've also shot at fire extinguishers, a washing machine, a lawn mower, and a frozen porcupine we found.

Yes, he is a total hillbilly. A real true Mainah.

Still, I like a good steel target that swings. Easy to see where you are hitting, easy to paint over when you are done, very satisfying sound, indestructible (well, for most guns they are).

Expired soda and beer cans are fun, but the favorites with my kids and I are the steel plates that move/reset by themselves. Clay pigeons are also fun to plink at with handguns and .22 rifles.

Empty Metabolic Drive jugs every now and then. Fill them with water. Otherwise a steel plate, or the shoot'n see targets.

I like golf balls if a small caliber, otherwise just paper targets that I stick big stickers on and pin to plywood. What caliber 700 are you coming into and is it the one with the floor plate or without?

Thanks for the ideas so far guys.

Questions I can't answer at the moment, haven't really looked at it as it was out of my price range until now. It might not even still be in stock after the show so we'll see.

I want to say 308 and with, but I don't remember really, so those are guesses.

Yeah it is 308 and has a floor plate. Well looks like a floor plate, the stock isn't solid. Not 100% sure it is removable, but there is a plate there.

So... What does that mean?

Just that its easier to convert to a detachable mag if you so choose. Also, if its hinged, you can unload it much easier. I don't think all of them are, but hinged is an upgrade so that probably means you have the CDL or BDL (cant remember which)

Haven't got it yet, and it needs to still be in inventory after the show next week, but fingers crossed, I think I'm going to jump on it. Might go a different direction but I'm thinking rifle for sure.

And probably the safest restaurant in America.

Can't be. That would upset the narrative, the narrative that says more guns means more people dying...especially children...and we can't have our children dying.
