  • Is there a positive way I can deter my neighbors kid from shooting wild life with a pellet gun?

    Where I live there is some wildlife. We recently had the fires here and nature has been slowly returning.

    Where I live there is some wildlife. We recently had the fires here and nature has been slowly returning. I could recently see on a large burnt tree there were several pairs of mourning doves in the branches and ground squirrels all around the ground. I am worried because I know that once doves have their young it takes two parents to raise them. When I see the kid shooting, he is aiming towards the tree. I asked politely to "please do not shoot the birds" and first they said it was their property. I said it doesn't matter you can't shoot birds. Then they said they were only shooting in the ground. I don't want enemies next door so I stopped there. Now I see a pair of the doves has a pair of babies on a brick wall right outside my window. If this kid shoots one of them, the babies will die. They otherwise seem like nice people.

  • Can a 5.5mm rifle kill a hog?

    Best answer: Shot placement is everything. That will kill a hog. I recommend either right in the ear or in the brain stem. Top of the neck, base of the skull. Vitals can do it too just be sure to go behind the shoulder. That caliber won't penetrate the shoulder blade of a big hog. Remember this for vital shots. "Shoot... show more
    Best answer: Shot placement is everything. That will kill a hog. I recommend either right in the ear or in the brain stem. Top of the neck, base of the skull. Vitals can do it too just be sure to go behind the shoulder. That caliber won't penetrate the shoulder blade of a big hog. Remember this for vital shots. "Shoot them high, watch them die. Shoot them low, watch them go." But the ear is the best bet. Soft spot with a direct channel to the brain. And a very definable target spot. Brain stem can be tricky because you don't have any real defining features to show exactly where it is. DON'T take frontal shots unless you're getting charged. At least not to the skull. Go just behind the skull if you can and you'll either hit the brain stem, a major artery or vitals if it's centered. Multiple shots are common with hogs. So don't be afraid to pull the trigger a few times. Especially if it's charging. Shoot til the damn thing quits breathing because he will mess you up if he gets to you. <150 yards.

  • Are there any handguns right now that are popular but will be discontinued and go up in price ( like the Colt Python did )?

    Best answer: There are guns I want but they keep increasing in price faster than I can save. Full auto machine guns. Used to be you can get a cheapo Mac-10 for $3500 (they were only $325 new in 1981) and now they are over $5500 and more like $6,000 and certainly going higher. Used to be you could buy a battle-rattle M16... show more

Used to be you could buy a battle-rattle M16 lower for $9500, now its $14000 and going up.

    Used to be you could get an AMT AutoMag in 44Rem or 44 AMT - there were popular in allot of movies - they used to hang in the $1800 to $200-..... now they are $3300 to $5800.

    There are some guns that increase in value more than others - Kimber, Walther, and the top Colt model 1911 s that go up $30 a year. I bought a Gold Cup National Match in 1989 for $550, fired it in 60-70 matches, sold it in 2002 for $825 or so. Today it would easily sell for over $1100.

    There are some guns that will never increase - even though they are totally awesome. Sig - is an excellent example. People who get into harms way, and need a seriously good service pistol will pay big $$ for a Sig. However, these folks will about never risk their life on a used one. Same with Glocks and other black, square looking guns. Great guns - poor investment.

    Go to a gun show. Look at all the guns that are MISSING. Notice how few Walther s there are? It s the guns you don t see - those are the ones you want to collect.

    You also need to know the old and recent history. Example - Smith and Wesson made Walther PPK/s in Maine. 2009 S&W stopped production and did a voluntary recall of all the PPK/s. In Sept 2009 Walther notified S&W their contract required them to produce at least 60 pieces or it was void. Smith and Wesson grabbed all their master gunsmiths and hand made/hand fitted 60 PPK/s. Called Allocation Pistols 30 went to distributors on the East Coast and 30 to Distributors on the West Coast. Basically, these are custom guns like pre 64 Winchesters. If you can find any PPK/s it will be close to $650 to $700 these days. I have only seen one of those Allocation Pistols sold and it was $1100. Soon as someone writes a book and includes this info - I am sure the hunt to track down the remaining 59 will be on. I say 59 because my wife has one. Years ago she had to sell her PPK/s to put food on the table. I always wanted to replace that for her........my name was on the west coast distributor list when the 30 arrived. If you email me - I will tell you the serial number - and you will know what to be looking for. It s inside info like this you need to get to invest and flip expensive nicer guns.

    You also need to store investment guns and their boxes properly. I have two nice AMT stainless 45 s with the original papers and box.... the boxes are a bit rough. A nice box can add hundreds. Sometimes you will see empty boxes on EBay - you might want to pick the ones that go to better pistols up.

  • What kind of hunter are you?

    What kind of hunter are you?

    Best answer: My neighbor got a piebald doe last season. The meat was fine. I wouldn't have a problem removing bad genes from the breeding stock, and albino and piebald are signs of bad genes.

  • Question about .410 bore chamber inserts?

    I have seen the chamber inserts, or adapters, for .410 bore that allows the same gun to fire .22 LR, .17 HMR, .38 Special, 9mm Luger and 32 S&W and I want to know if it is possible to make a safe to shoot .410 to .223 Remington adapter. Would it be alright to make and shoot or would it be a terrible idea?

  • Why do people say storing a magazine fully loaded damages the spring?

    I've seen countless videos depicting firearms working just fine using magazines that have been fully loaded for 2, 5, even 10+ years, and the guns always work just fine, even seen two videos showing that the spring has very slightly shrunk but it still functions with no problems.

I've never once see a video showing a firearm malfunctioning due to long term magazine spring compression. Why do so many people say keeping mags fully loaded is bad but never show any real proof that it does harm to the function of the mags?

  • Arizona mule deer tag?

    Can I not purchase a mule deer tag in Arizona for use of a rifle? I've been preparing to buy a tag for over a Year and I'm just now heading that buying a tag instead of entering the drawing only gives you the right to use archery. Please tell me it ain't so!

  • How tight should the barrel nut be on ar upper?

    Best answer: Stop. You are going to install a new barrel yourself...….. and you have no idea what the torque specifications are??????

    Best answer: Stop. You are going to install a new barrel yourself...….. and you have no idea what the torque specifications are??????

    Your are gonna have a real hard time on date night removing some girls bra with only two fingers on each hand...…. assuming she is ok with half your face and one ear missing.

    There are books at Amazon.com that for just $18 will save you from enduring multiple surgeries, months of pain pills and more months of physical therapy. Put down the wrench, go order "The Complete AR-15 Assembly Guide" and wait patiently by the mail box.

    Me. I did not take a two week armorer class because I liked playing with AR's. I took it because I was sick and tired of my match rifles being stuck in the local gun shop for weeks waiting on a 20 minute job.

    I have remove Colt factory barrels that were installed with less than 16lbs of torque. On match barrels I have gone as high as 85lb of torque and they fired like a champ. The actual military and commercial specification is 35lb. If the gas tube does not line up, then you loosen and remove the barrel, then insert and try again. Keep doing it until it aligns. (basically every time you cram the steel barrel into the softer aluminum receiver it should give a tiny bit".

    There are pitfalls to barrel removal. Like if the guy before you used Locktite instead of anti-seize. You will need to apply heat to defeat the Lock-tite. Problem is the aluminum receiver is going to act like a huge heat sink and pull it way from the barrel. That could warp the receiver. Do not apply heat close to the nut - get about 8" farther down the barrel and no closer.....slowly heat up the whole barrel. Take your time.

    You do have a full of Go, Field and NO GO 300 Blackout gauges for installing this new barrel, right? And a full set of 5.56mm Go, Field and NO GO so you can put the old barrel back on - right?

    Honestly - a smart bunny would not remove an already well mounted barrel. A smart bunny would buy a new receive and all the parts to make a new upper. Why? Because if the new barrel does not work - jam, no cycle, no feed, no eject or all the things that can go wrong...…….. why, you would always have the old upper to put on and verify the issue was not the lower.

    I highly recommend you give this up for the moment. I would like you to do two things. First, order that book. Second, find someone in your local gun club or range with experience ripping these apart and putting them together..... get them to mentor you. There is no thinking or logic involved in assembling an AR - you do it the correct way or you turn it into a pile of junk parts that don't function or shoot well.... or worse, and IED.

    Please do the right thing. Be a smart bunny and be safe.

  • Why pump action for home defense?

    When i think of a home defense gun i think of some tactical pump action. But wouldn’t it be better to have a semi automatic shotgun. So when you are disorinted at 3 in the morning you won’t have to deal with pumping the gun where as the semi auto would do it for you.

  • What type of gun is this?

    Best answer: How does it shoot caseless slugs? Powder charge or compressed air?

    If powder is added and then a slug is inserted, your friend likely has a black powder rifle. They use slugs.

    If compressed air is used, your friend has an air rifle. They use pellets.
