    Just finished my ‘mods’ on my recently purchased Savage B17 FV-SR tack driver!
    Mounted a Vortex Crossfire II 6-18x44 V-Brite scope and a bi-pod....to reach out and touch someone...actually varmits. Hoping to get eyeball shots.
    Will get to the range to zero it in.
    Fun gun...
    Has one of the best triggers I ever shot straight out of the box....my Walther PPQ 9mm is next in that category.
    Was shooting for a day on some land with a red dot. Didn’t really need ear protection. Indoor range I did. Not to mention other shooters.

    Y'all. I don't think I've ever desired a rifle as much as I want this one. Holy smokes. It's old school. It's new school. It's full-size G.I. Joe in a box cool. It's 308 and I just love the way those rounds thump. It's also close to two-grand and 9 pounds, putting into Gibson Les Paul holy grail territory, but good golly do I ever want it:

    I got an email this morning from Sig Sauer about some of their scopes going on sale.
    I took a look and....
    Whiskey3 3-9x40 Triplex $239 on sale for $99.
    Whiskey3 4-12x40 Hellfire Quadplex $479 for $199.
    They are sold out now.

    I have a Sig M400 Enhanced and a Sig MCX(I put a ‘Limbsaver’ butt pad on it since that skeletonized butt stock hurt), that just got some new scopes coming their way.
    Anyone have these scopes?
    Like or not like?

    I did read some reviews before buying....will see.

    One other item that for me blows away any other red dot IMHO is the Holosun 503C....got it for $160 earlier this year....ridiculous battery life. 20,000 hours for circle dot at mid brightness. 50,000 hours for dot only at mid brightness. Auto on feature.

    10-4, I could not really tell from the photo, Para Double stack is nice but to large for my hand.

    @SurfratTX im a fan of the holosuns, they seem to be a good budget alternative for aim point, I have one (planning on getting more as funds allow) and I’m very pleased with it.

    Yeah I had shot a few friends guns with the Aimpoints.....I like the Holosun better....better features, especially the solar power aspect. Not to mention $$ cheaper.

    I've heard of issues with the double stack and the fact they had a ramped barrell kinda turned then off to me for my first 1911

    I hear that the ramped barrel is handy if you want to shoot both .45 and .38 super from the same frame, though. But I also avoided Para when I was 1911 hunting because my hands are too small too. They're small enough that I had to get an extended slide release for my SR1911 just so I could drop the slide without shifting my grip, because my thumb didn't quite have the reach :anonymous:

    I like Rifleman, personally, but I've found that a lot of the 'review' content overlaps with G&A. Which is fine; you get different opinions on a lot of new models.

    Easy -

    If you like guns and history, American Rifleman
    If you like hunting, American Hunter
    If you like guns, Shooting Illustrated
    If you like politics, America's First Freedom

    Me, I get all of them.

    AR has great articles on new and old guns, lots of history too.
    AH has great hunting stories.
    SI is a really good gun magazine.
    AFF really sucks to read. It reports on all the idiot politicians out there, and the wonderful things they say.

    I got AFF when I first joined, but it frustrated me so much every month that I switched to Rifleman for the sake of my blood pressure :laugh:

    I dumped the NRA a long time ago and instead joined GOA. I'm not a fan of any "pro-2A" organization that argues in favor of new regulations when all regulations are, in fact, unconstitutional.

    While I agree with the idea that all regulations are unconstitutional, what the NRA does is "politics".

    I don't agree with all their decisions/acts, but they are biggest and best game in town. To politicians, numbers matter - hence the "power" of the NRA. (Of course, it is not really power, rather a block representation of "we the people".)

    GOA is a great organization, but they do not have mass behind them that the NRA does.

    EDIT: I should probably join GOA also.

    Got to so some shooting at 500 yards with inconsistent full force winds at a 75° angle. Was a great learning experience.
