"What You Did This Week"........Gun Edition

Postby hotlead » Sat Nov 09, 2013 11:25 am

What did you do, firearms wise, to prep for the ZPAW?

You got a .50BMG CQB carbine, your Class III paperwork came back approved, you actually found a box of .22s, you inherited a Wards bolt action 20ga single-shot shotgun, you perused Field&Stream while your Wife picked out stockings at the grocery store?

Whatever it is, tell us all about it.

As always, pics or it didn't happen!
This morning, Mrs. Hotlead very calmly said, "Yes, you can have the last bagel, but if you touch the raisin toast, I'll cut you"

"If you don't let your farts out, you'll get bad breath" Me talking to my Niece at the campfire.

Found two boxes of .30-30s this week, 150gr Remington, on Craigslist for $25.

One each of PMC .45acp and 9mm.

Working on a trade through a local gun forum, my SAI Milspec 1911A1 for his S&W M&P-15 Sport, one of the older ones with the 1/8 5R melonite barrels.

I had to dip into personal ammo supplies to satisfy demand for 7.62x51.

Shot my Mini 14 at a Practical Rifle match this AM.
Wow!
All the dry-fire practice I've done since I got it went smack-dab out the frickin window as soon as I went under time-pressure.
Fumbled mag changes mostly. Had one FTE malf. Glasses totally fogged up on the long range stage.

After years of running ARs and AKs it's kind of weird how intentional you have to be with a new system. No muscle memory...

Sufficeth to say, it was not my best match ever.
Sure was fun though.

I can't decide between an AR pistol and a 9" barreled 300 Win Mag with a brake like my .308
What do y'all think.

Why does it have to be an either/or proposition? If you can afford it get both.

It would stretch me to do both at once, I don't have the disposable income I had a couple of years ago (thanks obama)
I am leaning towards the AR pistol build.
It will be a 7" barrel version.
Then again if I was to find a deal on a 300 win mag barrel...
