Rifles & Shotguns / Re: Any 17 Rim-Fire Fans Out There?

I have one, my brother in law gave it to me after I drove all their crap from Denver to Austin in the biggest truck that you can rent. It’s not my cup of tea. Would love to sell it one day.

PS, driving I-25 from Denver down to New Mexico is a very beautiful drive.

Yes it’s an Anderson lower. I put an upper from another of my ARs, it fitted fine. The magazine took a greater slam to get the magazine to catch and the take down pin is hard to push with your finger. I think it’s just because it’s new and I need to oil those parts. If I have time this weekend I might take it shooting.

You will see that change if Trump loses 2020. If he loses, they will come.

Interesting, I never experienced any issues with CTD before, but it was my first time to shop them for over a year or more. Ordered on Saturday and had them on Tuesday.

Rifles & Shotguns / Anderson Manufacturing?

What do y’all know about Anderson rifles? Came across an incomplete (not 80% but still just the frame) AR lower last weekend, (had no intention to build another AR) but I bought it ($60) then ordered from cheaper-than-dirt a trigger, butt stock, and all the other items needed for the lower. They all came in this evening (2 business days, that’s fast!) and now I have a compete lower. Now looking for an upper... BUT what’s yall’s opinion on Anderson rifles? It is RF85 Treated which means it doesn’t need lubrication?! Sounds like a sells pitch to me. Oh and the wife has no clue but my 11 year old son says I should build an AR every year but in a different caliber.

This thread reminds me to check and renew/update my bugout bags. Been somewhat complacent the last few years. I have one for each kid (not counting the 6 month old) and wife. I’m sure the kids clothing are too small now.

Not sure which weekend would be best right now, but I’m down with camping, bonfires, hotdogs, cigars, shooting the sh!t, after shooting some guns.

Ammunition / Re: FYI - Sale at Academy - 9mm

2 weeks ago I went back to academy and bought 500 rounds of 9mm, total it cost me after taxes $109. About .20 a round.

General Gun Discussion / Re: ..if I didn't own firearms..

“If I didn’t own firearms...” WTF question is that? Haha, it’s like “If I didn’t have children...” both would end with something like “my life would be very boring”

I’m down, as long as TXDOT has planned any interstate or highway closures. I’m still pissed about that 2 years ago. Nato308 and I sat in the car for a long time, it was great chatting but I wanted to shoot some guns and meet some of y’all.

With modern/newer guns, after about a magazine worth I’m back into my game. But it takes longer for some of my older rifles that I might go a year or more from it last shot. They all are WW1 or WW2 rifles and all have their own “personalities”. I don’t shoot my older handguns all that much mainly because the ammo is expensive and harder to find.

This evening (Wednesday) Tomball got more rain (1.5inches) in 45 minutes then we did as a total  yesterday. My rain gauge showed 6/10s of a inch on Tuesday.

I would have told the cop that I thought I had a flat tire and pulled over.

That’s awesome and one helluva wide drive way, paint a large circled “H” for a helicopter landing pad!

I have an alarm, cameras, exterior lighting, garage is full of crap and is locked due to fact that we don’t drive the cars in it anymore. And yeah I have a ‘couple’ guns too.

Introduce Yourself / Re: New and Here to Help

Welcome onboard. I had no problem with my LTC, mine came in less than 2 weeks after I completed all of the paperwork.

Sanders placed the tran flag to the left of the American flag, all other flags should be to the right of the American flag. More disrespect.

The S&W Shield 2.0 is tried and true, also less expensive.

Nothing wrong with an alternative.

If no one came out with new guns, we would not have any new guns  :P

True... but your talking to a guy that carries a 34 year old gun almost daily.

I love to be non-PC, so may I? If you get upset just open the freezer before you melt snowflake!

To be historically correct the so-called indigenous people of the America’s were also explorers but from Northern China/Mongolian region of Asia.

To be really non-PC, someone should blame the ‘natives for walking the land bridge during the last ice age’ I mean if they never showed up, they would never have died by the Europeans.

The PC idea that life in the Americans was full of peaceful and loving natives and that they all died because the white devil Europeans is an out right lie.
