  • What is parallax and should I care if my rifle scope is parallax free?

    Best answer: One point of optical sights is doing away with any parallax issues. Unless your culmination changes in use(IE:recoil)
    Any parallax is consistent and not a concern.

  • Does chromatic aberration of a rifle scope affect point of impact of the bullet?

    Best answer: In layman`s terms: You are playing in a basketball game and making perfect shots...you break your glasses but instead of pulling out of the game you borrow someones else`s glasses that are close to your prescription. You see the point of impact of the ball is off after 1st shot. The power applied to your arms to... show more
    Best answer: In layman`s terms: You are playing in a basketball game and making perfect shots...you break your glasses but instead of pulling out of the game you borrow someones else`s glasses that are close to your prescription. You see the point of impact of the ball is off after 1st shot. The power applied to your arms to throw the ball is affected by the way you now see the hoop. Your memory of how you saw the hoop before you broke your glasses has to be adjusted to present conditions. Unlike the power in your arms that can be adjusted... the power of a rifle cartridge is not affected by the way you see the target.
    So, chromatic aberration does INDIRECTLY have an effect on point of impact ONLY because your eyes see it in the distorted way the lens project the image.IMHO.

  • Can you collect ammo casings at gun ranges?

    I love to collect casing and sell them to reloadeds. I was wondering if gun ranges allow you to come in and pick up all the casings dropped by previous shooters. I know that it would depend on the gun range, but in general?

  • Hunting section.... Are we dead yet?

    Sure seems like it. I believe Yahoo screwed the pooch years ago by nursing the liberal trolls, and at the same time penalizing the straight shooters.

  • I have a question for my gun lovers.?

    Best answer: I would not get the gen 5 Glock 19 - not because Glocks are not good, but because I NEVER buy anything that is newly introduced. I always wait at least a years for a new product before seriously considering purchasing it. That applies not only to firearms, but medicine, new software releases, model of cars,... show more
    Best answer: I would not get the gen 5 Glock 19 - not because Glocks are not good, but because I NEVER buy anything that is newly introduced. I always wait at least a years for a new product before seriously considering purchasing it. That applies not only to firearms, but medicine, new software releases, model of cars, anything.

    My take of this is based on over 30 years in quality assurance and project management where I have seen repeatedly how companies (include those with reputations for very high quality products) relent to pressure to release a new product before testing is completed or knowing certain defects/problems exist and has not been fixed. This happens because research and development is very expensive and the longer a product remains in R&D, it is eating up huge amounts of capital (in some cases $millions) everyday, so more often than not the new product is released into the market just to get some cash flow going while the problem is being addressed. The way they cover themselves is to allow customers who complain to get a free replacement when the replacement is simply the item that has the post-released fix.

    You must had spend a pretty penny on the upgrades to your Beretta 92, and more importantly you KNOW how it handles and any eccentricities it may have - it is a known quantity. If you want to get the G5 Glock19, then do so after a year or so when the defects have been made apparent and fixed.

  • Are the First Blood Rambo knives legal or illegal?

    Best answer: No, the simple fact of the matter is in Ireland it is ILLGEAL to carry a knife of any size shape or form without due reason for carrying it at that time and in that location, this includes pen knives and Leatherman's with a blade on it. A multitool is pretty much completely defensible if questioned. I think a... show more

    I think a Rambo knife is a no go in public, but it is likely fine for show at home.

    YOU should dig deeper in your location of residence, personally.

  • Knife experts: What kind of a knife do you think this is?

    Knife experts: What kind of a knife do you think this is?

    Best answer: It is a pretty knife with classic blade. The handle looks to fit the hand and guard looks very functional to protect fingers. Ornate adds signature. The hardwood is superb.

Overall this is a functional knife that is well balanced and although interestingly attractive seems to be tough and well constructed. I like knives with character such as this one.
    By far the best knife shown.
    Strange the way some look at things, a hunting rifle with an engraving of a deer or an antelope on the receiver and maybe a carving on the wood butt stock and not thought of as a distraction from its basic function but a couple of Curly-Q designs on a knife and the basic function goes out the window.

    Hi I am a 23 year old that loves target shooting. Firearms is a hobby of mine like many dudes. I have been thinking about how I would be able to build a short barrel shogun build really just for the fun and experience of it. According to federal law its illegal to own a short barrel shotgun but I have not found anything about owning a short barrel that is not attached to the gun itself (removable emington 870 barrel) is this something that is legal to own or is it the same as owning a short barrel shotgun that is fully essembled? Thanks!

  • Smith and Wesson 629 or 329pd for hiking gun?

    Best answer: Both will have fine durability. The 329pd is probably going to recoil considerably with full power loads - it is a light piece. Which is great when you find yourself carrying it all day, but could be terrible if you find yourself unable to deal with the recoil. We can give you the numbers. We can tell you how... show more

    We can give you the numbers. We can tell you how the recoil is for us - but you're not any of us. The only way you're going to know how the recoil feels for a particular gun is to shoot it.

  • Did anyone see this on national news? If not,. I wonder why not?

    Best answer: Of COURSE this was not on National "news" This story will NEVER be told by the left wing press because it goes against every point the liberal gun grabbers try to make.
