General Gun Discussion / Re: range that allows buckshot/slugs
« on: August 16, 2012, 03:14:25 PM »
The shotgun lanes at ASC are for bird and buck. If you want to shoot slugs, you have to use the rifle lanes. It's no inconvenience as both sets of lanes are adjacent to each other. You have the option of either sitting or standing.

AJC Sports in Katy had them in stock when I was there earlier this week. I've also seen them at the Arms Room on 45 south. I do a lot of driving.

Rifles & Shotguns / Need a Mossberg 835 slug barrel
« on: December 01, 2011, 05:36:27 PM »
Does anyone know where I can find a Mossberg 835 slug barrel in town?  I've checked Gander Mountain, Independence Arms, and Carter's Country. I was hoping someone could point me to another in town vendor that I haven't thought of already. Online retailers I've checked :help: are sold out and I'm in need of one ASAP.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Adam, I was the big black guy.

Give in to the dark side Luke. It is your destiny. :th_oogle:

No slacking here, but I have gotten plenty experience carrying in shorts.  :th_thicon_idea:

I carry 1911's in .45 acp because I shoot them better than I shoot anything else. I guess that makes me an outdated old man x2.  :wave1: :wave1:

I had a Ruger LCR for a while.  It concealed well and shot ok, but ended up trading it for a Springfield Micro Compact.  That one conceals well and shoots great. I can't say I had a negative experience, I just wasn't as accurate im my hands as I would have liked.  Your mileage may vary.

Rifles & Shotguns / Would you still buy a Remington 700?
« on: May 17, 2011, 09:17:14 PM »
I find myself pondering the same point I did at this same time last year.  I want to begin deer hunting this season and need to buy a rifle.  I have done some serious research on which 30.06 platform I want to choose, and keep finding that the Remington M700 fits all of my criteria (American made, proven durability, good accuracy, won't break the bank [$500.00 or so]).  I am also aware of the reported issues over the years of it firing when not intended. 

In the end I'm trying to get a few other opinions. Knowing all of the documented issues (and being meticulous with safe firearm handling procedure), would you still purchase a new Remington 700? And if not, what would be another alternative that would fit my criteria? 

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as I found a new one near me that is scoped for 400 and I'm feeling the itch.

Link doesn't work

So my brother in law is in town for the weekend and he's never shot a gun before.  I decided to pull out the 1911's and the 12 gauge to give him his first lessons. Fast forward to the end of the session, my truck won't start just as the last cease fire of the day was beginning. Over the next thirty minutes( roadside assistance was about an hour away)  I had 4 complete strangers come by to help us get the truck started (nothing any of us tried worked, but the guy the towing company sent had it cranked up in about 10 seconds.  Go figure.)

 There are some truly salt of the earth people in the shooting community. I just wanted to send this out to thank those gentlemen for their time and efforts. While we were on the way there, I told my brother in law that you will find the best people in the city at the shooting range. You really made my words more true than I knew. Thanks!!!!
