..range report..
« on: March 20, 2017, 01:29:15 PM »
2 firearms that I hadn't shot took a ride with me to my local indoor range this morning - my Bond Arms Snake Slayer and my Colt AR w/it's newly installed binary trigger

Snake Slayer :
4 1/4" barrel in .38spec/.357mag - .38spec was as easy as pie - absolutely very manageable - I shot 2 rounds of .357mag and those will probably be the last of those I'll shoot with this pistol (ouch) - was shooting to 7 yds and from the looks of the paper target the rounds appeared to have "tumbled" (both .38spec & .357mag)

3 1/2" barrel in .410ga/,45LC - shot only .410 (no desire to keep .45LC ammo in stock) - very manageable with slugs and shot - a fairly good pattern at 7yds - about 1 1/2' for most pellets - will continue with this as my primary "work around the property" sidearm

also, nothing about the pistol could be classified as "really accurate" - center of mass = ok, but no points for real accuracy

Colt AR 5.56 w/binary trigger/RDS :

this is the one that I've really been wanting to shoot and have a 1 word report - AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME (well, 3 words) - I wasn't able to do an "ammo dump" (that I'll do sometime in the future - at a range that will allow me doing so) but I was able to fire off groups of 2, 4 & 6 and I've gotta say it again, AWESOME - I haven't shot anything comparable since leaving the Army in the '60s ! - this will be my new nightstand companion, along with my G24

if ya can, locate one and shoot it

Ive been looking at getting a Windham Weaponry A 4 GVT, ( 1:7 twist )  20 inch.  They are the closest I found thats GVT spec AND available to me. Stag makes one, but it has the wrong twist  (  1:9  ) for a GVT spec 20 inch.

The DPMS ar's I have run fine, no problems, but they are carbines. And after lugging around an Colt M16 A2 for 6 years, they kinda grow on ya.  These carbine dont come close to the accuracy we got from the M16,, although, these new Ar's will run better when dirt & carbon get involved.

Alot to be said for a good old Colt. I dont know it the new stuff is as good as the old though.
Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often, and for the same reason.

There are two kinds of people in the world my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. YOU DIG.  " Blondie".

Well, any man that wouldnt cheat at cards for a poke, dont want one bad enough. " Gus".
