    Regular Mosins are nothing, try shooting the M38 or M44 carbines. Now there's some kick!

    I like heavy recoil at times....I know I'm weird, but shooting a featherweight model 70 in 30-06 is fun to me. I had a 91/30 for a while and honestly, I didn't think it kicked that much at all. I have shot one of the carbines before too, and I didn't think that was too bad either.

    also, I only enjoy shooting them when I am standing....when I'm on a bench...not so much.


    MY favorite things to shoot are long barrel revolver with really hot loads in them. I shoot a .45 LC ruger blackhawk with a 7.5 inch barrel and love shooting super hot loads in it

    I was surprised how much kick the mosin had on it when I first bought it. Now it feels like nothing to me and I'd be able to shoot 200 rounds if the gun/bolt is up for the task.
    I went shooting with this girl from work and her boyfriend, I had my mosin and 870. He had 2 XD's(9mm & .40) and 2 AR's. I'm over on the end of the range firing off rounds out of the mosin with ease. Both of them took one shot and were DONE with the gun.

    I think this means I need something that has more kick;)

    My current favorite I don't own, an encore rifle, it was the first time I have ever been scope checked lol

    Guy let me shoot it at the range, had it chambered in .500 s&w, with 400 grain (iirc) bullets...set off my truck alarm about 20 yards away from the concussion...fun gun

    I just wrapped the lever of my model 94 (old one) with paracord to see if I would like it. I like it, so I'm gonna take off the paracord and replace it with leather. My marlin is gonna get the paracord treatment though. The 94 is just too old and pretty to get paracord

    And the obligatory picture of the whole gun (my buddy stole my hat and wanted this picture lol...)

    Over the summer I'm gonna try and get a lot of better pictures of my guns both for my records and because I want to show them off lol

    That one is in 30-30 and is quickly becoming my favorite fun to shoot. I just wish I could afford to get ammo (of any type). In trying to trade 2 boxes of cci mini mags for 30-30 ammo right now just so I can shoot it....I can't wait to start reloading I have so much brass just waiting...

    Ok guys, I am looks for a specific holster, I inherited one from my father and now I want to make a "modern gunfighter belt" with it, but don't want to modify the one I inherited.

    I'm thinking about using a surplus pistol belt, this holster, and a bit of nylon webbing and dropping the holster from the belt like a cowboy action gun belt. I've been thinking about this for a while.

    This is what I am looking for, I think it is an uncle mikes brand holster but there is no tag or anything. I use it for a ruger new model black hawk.

    I'm trying to avoid eBay, I have found one or two up there at a time, but I just really don't like eBay.

    Having a gun mount in a easy access spot isn't a bad idea...I'd personally rather carry on me or have a pistol mount permanent

    Dad wants me to start getting parts to build a AR upper in 7.62x39, trying to keep it inexpensive, but we want to keep reasonable accuracy (3 MOA?) , and reliability (quality mags, and what else?).
    i'm thinking about a 16'' barrel, from my research (all 15 minutes) you see negligible gains in a 20'' barrel vs a 16'', and we'd be better off spending a little bit more on a quality barrel.

    any thoughts, tips, suggestions?

    The main problem is that magazines are very unreliable. The standard AR mag is straight and then just a slight bend or curve in it. Look at an AK mag, they have a much sharper curve. They are shaped this way to accomodate the rounds they hold.

    Now look at how the AR and the AK hold their mags. The AR mag fits up inside the magwell, a straight magwell.
    Look at the AK, there really isnt a magwell, just a spot for the mag to attatch to, so that the mag can keep its curvature.

    Ive seen where people will take AR mags, cut them off just below where they stick out of the bottom of the magwell and then weld on an AK mag to the bottom.

    Some people can only fit 8-10 rounds in a normal mag before they run into feeding issues.

    If you decide on going this route do lots of research and know what you are getting into.
