Putting the MARS on the little single-shot .22 was a joke. The sight was too big and it sat much too high over the bore. The little Lucid M7 is smaller and much cheaper and so a closer match to … Continue reading
.22 rifles are, by definition, rifled. In quite a few countries, that’s subject to a higher level of restriction than smoothbores. 22LR round is fixed ammunition, and that is also more restricted compared to loosely loaded black powder guns. The … Continue reading
This kit improves balance and pointing without affecting trigger pull. I tried it at the Bullpup shoot last September and it improved my accuracy considerably over the base stock. Unlike P90, it separates support hand from the trigger guard and … Continue reading
Father with Marlin 795LTR (Appleseed model) carbine. Daughter with Cavalry SX410 shotgun.
Last year, she started out with a single shot Crickett, now she’s ready for a 10-22 Tactical. In today’s market, the box in her left hand might be worth nearly as much as the rifle. I think Garibaldi would have … Continue reading
Three years ago, I took this photo of 15 year old Rachel. She had fun with the bolt action but had to shoot it from a support due to the stock length and considerable overall heft. Yesterday, I took photos … Continue reading
The long-awaited Marlin 795LTR is finally in production and will be available shortly. The concept of Liberty Training Rifle is best explained on the Appleseed site. The rifle comes with two magazines, a canvas sling and adjustable Tech Sights. I … Continue reading
Today’s high was only 5*C (41*F) – the day was cold, dreary and wet. I must not have moved far enough South for a sufficiently warm winter. At least we had warm clothes available.
The standard M&P 15-22 comes with very reliable 25rd magazines. They have only one down side, the open construction to facilitate loading. They are also out currently of stock with most vendors. Two alternatives both raise capacity and improve sealing. … Continue reading
Twisted Industries now makes an LC9 conversion kit. Same milled magazines as the PF9 and P11 kits.
In response to my recent post about .22 conversion kits and upper, someone mentioned this carbine. It’s a dedicated .22 that cannot accept centerfire upper, but that also means it’s optimized for the rimfire cartridge. I don’t own one yet … Continue reading
For the upcoming article in Concealed Carry magazine about .22 adapters and rimfire clones of centerfire guns. This Iver Johnson set has .22 for practice, 9mm for competitions and 45ACP for carry.
So our foes succeeded in making rifle ammunition too rare to use for recreational shooting. Most people are now shooting only to zero their new guns, to function test and to get familiar with the manual of arms. The rest … Continue reading
ATI1911-22 with an AAC Pilot suppressor shown. Walther P22, M&P22 and 1911-22 all use the same threaded adapter for mounting suppressors.
Later this week, I will be instructing a friend in the use of handguns. She is over 60, has small arthritic hands and has never used a firearm before. She’s taking her required carry course over the weekend. Her loving … Continue reading
I don’t actually agree with that view. A 4MOA AK clone is plenty useful for its intended purpose. But given that we the people are far behind the most probable enemy in firepower, we have two main options. The first … Continue reading
Chiappa mfour-22 with BDM 26rd magazine. Just the thing for clays at 25-50 yards.
Suppressed SU22 is light enough and quiet enough for a comfortable social outing in the woods of Tennessee. Everyone shot suppressed that day, so the ear plugs aren’t in evidence.
