    The Box O’ Truth Gets a Suppressor

    I don’t know why it took me so long to realize my dire need for a suppressor, but I finally got one. It took right at 9 months from ordering the suppressor and filing the [...]
  • 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 [...]

Fixing the Problems on a Ruger 22/45 Lite

I recently got a Ruger 22/45 Lite with the intention of putting a suppressor on it as soon as the ATF approves and sends me my stamp. But while waiting for them, I decided to shoot it a little without the can to see how it ran. Here it is: And here is the important part. A threaded cover covers the threads on the end of the barrel where the suppressor will screw on. I ran only about 30 rounds through it, using two [...]

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.

Some said it was “not likely” [...]

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.

Educational Zone #190 – You Can’t Get Past Bad Bullets

I took the lovely wife to the range this morning to do a little experiment with some bullets that were given to me. My friend had gotten a bunch of .45-70, 405 grain bullets really cheap, and gave me a bunch of them. “Free bullets”! What could be better? I loaded some up and we headed to the range this morning to see how well they shot. I brought my Shiloh Sharps Long Range Express to try them out. It is both a [...]

Educational Zone #187 – The LaRue MBT Meticulously Built Trigger

I participated in the “One MOA All Day Long Challenge” and placed in the SPR Division. It was a fun challenge. But then Mark LaRue posted this in the thread:  Originally Posted By LaRue_Tactical:  Guys, we’ve gotten our sea legs under us and are really moving along enough now that I can get aggressive in promoting our MBT triggers. I am kicking off the big push by giving everyone on the list a complimentary [...]
