He said he was having a hard time deciding...










but it's really been awhile.

I went with black, still waiting on a few parts.


I am thinking really hard about building a m25, but the new sig rifle also has my name all over it.

So many guns, so little time

I always break all the clay pigeons,  some times its even with lead.

If you're talking about a SIG MCX-SPEAR I would put off the purchase for now. And not just because I don't have 8 grand for a First Production Run Special Edition. I want more data about throat erosion with the .277 SIG FURY cartridge and its SAAMI max. 80,000 PSI chamber pressure.

I think it's interesting that the .277 FURY uses 7mm diameter bullets (7.06mm x 51.2 mm case). So did the .276 Pedersen (7.22 x 51.4mm), and so does the 7mm-08 Remington (7.2 x 51.7 mm).  All three are 7x51mm or 7.2x51mm if you go by bullet diameter instead or bore diameter like the British used to. If the U.S. adopted the .276 Pedersen 99 years ago they could have avoided a lot of nonsense, switching calibers over and over and over again. Or better yet they could have improved the .276 Pedersen by straightening out the taper of the case making it like the 7mm-08 Remington and adopted THAT 99 years ago. The only thing the .277 FURY does better than the 7mm-08 Remington is achieve its velocity from a 16" barrel instead of a long test barrel. If after 99 years the military decided they needed more power than a .276 Pedersen/7mm-08 Remington type of cartridge they could get it with a hybrid case like the .277 FURY without changing calibers. I just found out the .277 Fury also has a 0.025" longer OAL than the .284 Winchester even though the .284 Winchester case is 0.155" longer. I guess you could seat the same length bullets 0.18" further out in the .277 Fury and squeeze in a bit more powder.

Also, it's what a ninja would choose. ;) Not a true tacticool mall ninja or course. Black isn't half as tacticool as a Big Brand Name digital-woodland-desert-before-dessert-A-TACS-dirustive-pattern-multi-season-multi-terrain-multicam camo pattern with fluorescent highlights that shows off your style.

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.
It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

Paint it Hot Pink and name it Fluffy, Like Massad Ayoob did with his Rem 870.

Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage. Where are we now??????

I had the chance, joy, excitement, thrill, of shooting on the same squad as Julie Golob.  In the limited division she was shooting a new pink S&W with eight pink magazines.  Pink was very new to S&W, and this set up was custom for her from the pro shop.  She told me the best part of a pink gun and pink magazines is that no guy was going to walk off with her magazines at a competition.
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

Clearly she has never heard of the pro 2a group the pink pistols.

I'm sure she has now, but this was very early in their existence.
