• The Ruger American Rimfire Rifle

    I was recently reading a thread on Arfcom about “Accurate Bolt Action .22 Rifles for Squirrel Hunting”. Several members posted pictures of some very nice rifles. But my [...]
  • Very Accurate .22 Ammo

    I am always on the lookout for some accurate .22 ammo. It has been scarce lately, but I did find some here and there. Our friends at AIM had a sale last week and had some .22 [...]

  • The Canik 9mm Pistol

    My buddy Liem called me to tell me he had bought a new interesting pistol and I thought you guys might be interested in seeing it. The pistol is a Canik 9mm, model TP9 SF. It [...]

Can You Improve the Ammo for the Mosin 91/30?

Being retired, and not having much to do, I often wonder about things. A lot of us shoot the Mosin 91/30 and enjoy the rifle. But not many reload for them, as surplus military ammo is cheap and available. It shoots the great 7.62 X 54R cartridge. The “R” means that it is rimmed. It has ballistics almost as good as the .30-06, but not quite as good. But what if someone wanted to use them to hunt game? What if I wanted [...]

How Easy is It to Shoot 30 Shots Into One Group

A couple of days ago someone on AR15.com posted a picture of a guy on another board that showed a small ragged group and said that he had shot this 30 shot group at 100 yards with his AR-15. The picture was too small to accurately measure the group, but it was one ragged hole and looked to be less than one inch, maybe around .75 inch. As so often happens, a heated discussion resulted. Some said it was “not likely” [...]

An Inexpensive AR-15 and an Inexpensive Red Dot Scope

You may remember a short while back I did a post about my friend doc540’s new inexpensive AR-15 and its surprising accuracy. Here’s the link: Can a Cheap AR-15 be Accurate? I liked his rifle so much that I decided that I needed one for myself. Ever had that happen to you? So, I bought one. It was a little more expensive that doc’s, but I still got it taxes and all for about $600. That included a set of fold down [...]

Can a Cheap AR-15 Be Accurate? Lots of Pics

Oftentimes a friend will send me a note and say, “Have you ever thought about doing a test about this?” I get a lot of good ideas that way. My buddy doc540 recently asked me, “How much accuracy should someone expect from a “cheap” AR-15 rifle set up?” That’s a great question. We know that AR-15 rifles can be fine-tuned to be very accurate bench rest rifles. But what about an inexpensive out-of-the-box [...]

Educational Zone #192 – Gun Lubrication

In a recent discussion about gun lubricants, several people stated that they used Mobil 1 Synthetic oil as a gun lube. This got me to thinking…… As a guy that worked in an oil refinery, I knew that different oils are developed for different uses. Some can be used in other applications and work well, but as far as I am aware, none had been specifically designed as a gun lubricant. I thought what we really [...]
