  1. There is no optic or mag cap limit for this new game, so I guess I will get something computerized that talks with lasers and so forth. They do not allow AR pistols, but I could get any pistol caliber gun.
  2. I completely forgot about that forum.
  3. Dont be hatin. Where else would I ask about 1911s that can do double duty in 3 gun and wild bunch?
  4. I need a 9mm target pistol for an upcoming match. It’s a new type of match that involves 300-700 yard targets for AR and pistol targets up to 25 yards. While I’m buying, I thought I’d see if there is a model that would be good for that and also wild bunch and maybe 3 gun, but mostly wild bunch.
  5. What works really well and looks decent at a SASS match?
  6. Of course, mounting a Schmidt and Bender on the rifle is part of what makes it so expensive. But the rifle still cost more than the scope.
  7. Chronic wasting disease. https://www.cdc.gov/prions/cwd/index.html
  8. Your high maintenance girlfriend studied at the knee of Wildcard Bill. Guaranteed!
  9. Boats count as houses. I deducted my cruiser as a second home. Pretty sure that’s how that works.
  10. ... until you get into competitive long range shooting. I’ve never spent so much money on something in all my life unless it was a house or a car.
  11. 7.5 joules is about 5.5 foot pounds (FPE). The BB guns discussed here, like the Red Ryder, have about 1 FPE. The conversion of muzzle energy to velocity depends on the weight of the projectile. An Olympic air rifle or air pistol firing a 7 grain pellet at 580 FPS has about 5.5 FPE. A 40 grain .22 round at 1250 FPS has about 140 FPE.
  12. Regarding sweeping others when NOT the shooter, I have been wondering about folks taking their gun belts off and laying them in their carts. If the cleared pistols are allowed to rest on their sides in the bottom of the cart, for example, is there a potential violation if the cart is wheeled about the range like that? What if it is sitting still and someone walks by it? Do they sweep themselves?
  13. My interest lies in the legal requirement at my location in rural north texas to have at least 10 acres to shoot firearms. I have 1 acre, so I can practice CAS at home with BB guns, but I can’t shoot .22s. And the Foot Pound Muzzle Energy (FPE) on these is about 1 FPE. That’s a 7ish grain BB at about 400 FPS, If I recall correctly. The same as a Red Ryder. And the cost per round is less than a penny. I don’t reload, so the .22 would be more costly and the risk also much greater on a small lot like mine. In Germany, I presume they cannot get firearms at all, so that has to be the driving factor there.
  14. Its not clear to me how the shells charge and if using a tank with a safe max fill would help avoid problems. The shells look longer than the real thing, and I imagine that they are quite heavy even after firing, so loading them in the barrels and ejecting them onto the floor will be a different experience from the real thing.
  15. To second Pete, the sound of the steel target is louder to the shooter than is reflected in the video. What's more, the sound of the gas propellant is even louder to a shooter. Without ear protection, the propellant noise and gong are not that far off from what a hearing protected shooter would experience using a real gun and CAS target. I was surprised at how similar the experience is in comparison. The main thing missing is recoil, and of course shotgun with knock down targets.
