Be alert.

Be vigilant.

Be ready to take cover.

Be prepared to yell, "Keep your hands off your guns while people are downrange!"

To ban all 06 ammo as armor peircing?

I heard just yesterday ... "you legal with all that?"

And all he had seen was my 223 Contender and my CX4 Storm! (AR was still in the car)

I cleared off some brush so I could get back into shooting again. Between moving and starting work I'd let the range got shit. So once again, I fit the Fudd Cycle as I begin shooting again

( My .260 held 1" at 100 yards however, something Im kind of happy about... I want smaller)

Keep your Contender and Encore chambered for PISTOL rounds.

Huntin gseason here started on the 9th of September, so they have been out for a bit.



Gotten the "Old war shit" comment on some of my rifles, outhsot the deer hunters using my Garand

got some looks from my Old leveractions, still outhsot the sanctimonious bastards (they like whiz bang bolt guns)

Got a better group at 50 yards and 100 with my schofield than half the deer hunters did with their rifles.....



And one tried to give me shit for carrying my 1911 in a holster cocked and locked as I went down range to check targets (after he had swept a group going down on the last cease fire with his rifle dicking with it.) I said loudly, for his benefit, and the others, that I carried it down so that if anyone, includign him swept me, I could return fire, before they fired if necessary

The horror. During hunting season I had to avoid the range during weekends for fear of being shot by some idiot trying to zero his rifle, most of them have no clue about range safety.
Link Posted: 10/2/2005 5:14:22 PM EDT
So you guys are saying that not a single one of you hunt????
I for one am a avid hunter and very safety conscious so if you don't like me shooting at the range that I pay membership to than that is your tough luck.
Bottom line is don't group all of any one group together. How do you like it when anti's group all gun owners into "gun toting nut jobs that will kill anyone on sight".
Take each hunter as a individual and treat em as such.

My Fudd-fu is strong. I shoot 1 shot to zero in my stainless steel Weatherby Magnum and then carry my 1 magic bullet into the field where I slay the mighty ruminant at 500 yds with 1 shot to the eyeball. I have the beast gutted and hung by 1 hr after sunrise and spend the rest of the day watching gungha clean my gear, polish my boots and pack everything away until next season.

Wascally wabbit can't escape the wrath of the FUDD!

You are a minority, the majority of hunters I see at the range are very unsafe. I don't trust them as a rule.

And I have hunted before and know hunters.

I love it when Elmer shows up. I shoot nothing but pistols and f/a. Love to wait until they are sighting in and let loose with a f/a burst. The look on their faces.

I liked going down there with my 1974 Sharps, throwing cast lead bullets over black powder, iron sights, and getting 1-1.5" groups, when the 'fudds had a hard time keeping 6" or so.

They always ask me if I hunt with it. I always have to tell 'em it's a target setup.

My apologies I guess I got a little hot headed and grouped everyone into the same group (witch I hate to do). I read all the anti hunter posts and yours actually did stand out but it was not the last to be read so I was back to being angry about all the anti hunter's again when it came time to post my reply.

Once again my apologies.

And I believe him! see, they are talking pie-plate or milk-jug accuracy at 25 yards. I'm just glad they miss more deer than they wound.

That's not the purpose fellow. It's when they realize f/a is legal and they get wide eyed. A number that come over to talk and look get to shoot them, especially if they have their children with them. Always make sure I have a f/a .22 upper their kids can shoot Try it sometimes rather than being judgemental

Nothing works so well as dumping 30 down range with iron sights and keeping them all in the black,
a trick the Elmers can almost never do. Hell, half their rifles don't even HAVE any iron sights!

All of my scoped rifles still have iron sights.

You're absolutely correct.

I started this thread not so much to bash hunters, but to bash infrequent range users that don't pay attention to anything that goes on around them. I saw several incidents of unsafe behavior at the range today commited by once-a-year users fumbling around with their guns while the range was cold and people were still downrange. (At this particular range during a cease-fire, you are not even permitted to approach the firing line, let alone handling guns at the bench.)

Then yur post title should read, " The once a year gun users have returned to the range". But you are correct, it is sad to see.

It's not really "deer hunters" ... alot of us here hunt .... I do. It's those complacent redneck(and yes, they are all over the country, not just the south) hunters that don't know a damn thing about firearms, even though they and thier family have been using them for years. They they think hitting a pie plate at 50 yards is "good enough to kill a deer" ... when they miss or wound a deer they think "awe hell, the barrel is bent!" ... they also think a rifle is "ackrit" just because it has a long barrel or a "fast" bullet. All the above is just funny, what is harmfull is their attitude towards black rifles. They think they are somehow hurting thier cause and would be glad to see them banned as much as the liberals.

Nice.

Here at this board we battle rifle enthusiasts are worried about our hunting counter-parts abandoning us when it comes to the 2nd Amendment and then you have members here bragging about doing their best to offend that group at the range. Way to set us up for success in our fight to keep our part of the sport legal guys, bravo zulu.

The Encore pistol is the most popular ... they seem to have a huge "PUSH" rather than real sharp recoil.

A friend of mine has a custom Encore barrel in 300 Win Mag .

The blast is awesome!

Diffinately close enough to knock down a deer. Do you have it sighted in to fire high at 25 yards? I sight my rifle in so that when I'm aiming dead on it's an inch or two high at a 100 yards. Were you pulling a little to the left?

The velocity will be reduced a bit, but as long as you compensate for it ... I would say the range would be as far as your 30-06 rifle.

You can get into an Encore frame and barrel for around $500. You don't have to start with a SSK setup, they are much more expensive. TC makes chambers the 30-06 from the factory. I like the 308 in the Encore. My next barrel purchase will be a 260 Remington.

www.tcarms.com/TC_HTML/tc_enc_p_calchrt01.htm

There are tons of new and used barrels and frames on Gunbroker, eBay(barrels), etc ....
