CLE built AR and Berger bullets?  Man, you aren't messing around, are you?  That doesn't leave much room for improvement.  I can't even shoot well enough to warrant those...
Link Posted: 1/2/2004 10:35:37 AM EST
When I look at the cost of having CLE put a Krieger barrel on for me versus the costs I incurred trying to get a DPMS/Wilson to shoot like one it was a no brainer. I realize the difference between the two may not be an issue in a hunting scenario but it definitely helps my shooting to know the gun is far more capable than I am. Your milage may vary. After reading all the posts about 1/4" groups from out of the box DPMS weapons I wonder if they ever fire the 3rd, 4th or 5th shot becasue the four I have won't do it.

:)  I was walking downrange to 200 yards with another HP type, who talked about the 1/2 MOA groups he was shooting.  Damn, if I can get near MOA I am happy as a clam.

They were near 1/2 MOA, once he discounted all the "fliers" usually 2 of 5 shots.

More fun times at the Isaac Walton range.

I have always wondered how many people confuse group size with draw poker.

Brian from Sitka here.  Born and raised there.  Am now 20 years old and currently spending 9 months out of the year in Washington at college.  Right now I'm in the process of selling my preban lower receiver and going to buy a postban Colt MT6400c (and yes, I am insane).

Welcome Brian.  One of the good things about Alaska is insanity is okay here, and can be of positive benefit.  People can respect that in people here.  I maintain that those who work in my job in a permanent fashion are all freaks and criminals.  Alaskans are all "special" people in my book, normal people need not move here...

Hey Brian:

I'm over in Juneau. Well, currently I'm writing from Seattle. Dealing with a family emergency but I live and work in Juneau.  Next time you're through Juneau on a flight you should let me know.  I know I prefer to take direct flgihts to and from SE but from time to time flights do get stuck elsewhere. Which school are you attending in WA?  I went to WA State for a couple years but didn't care much for school life and even less for the lack of trees and water.  Nothing but rolling hills and wheat fields.

I indeed agree with that.  It's a State that dosen't even require a permit for concealed carry, and where people don't even give it second thought when they see someone walking down the side of the with a rifle slung across their back.

I won't be heading back to Sitka until late June since we get out so late here at Western Washington Univ.  And by that time the non-stop flights will be running to Sitka, but stop overs in JNU and/or KTN are common in the non-summer months.

BUWAHAHA!  Yes, that was me!  Nice to see you around on ARF!  Please check out the AMGA MG shoot thread and the local ARF member shoot thread, would be cool to see you at either shoot.

I couldn't believe it, but the harder kicking AK-47 actually gave me a shoulder bruising!  Of course I was wearing just a shirt but wow, didn't think it kicked me that hard

I went out today.  Met some dude from Scotland, we let him shoot our stuff.  I shot a friends suppressed M3 Grease Gun MG.  I had my new Wilson CQB 1911.  I brought my MP5SD only to discover I didn't have any ammo to shoot in it with me - serious bummer

Won't be there tomorrow, but Wednesday I'll be bringing some old friends and am making sure there are plenty of MG's and other things to shoot, be there in the afternoon if you can make it.  Was nice meeting you and your brother, always fun to swap guns!

Brian - from Anchorage.  I'm currently working private security in Iraq but I pop in and out of Anchorage on vacation.

I'm kind of non Alaskan in that I dont hunt or fish or know a darn thing about either h.gif I do as much of the tactical shooting as I can though. I can make an excuse and say I do it for work but truth is I do it because its fun.  I'm a 3 gun guy; AR15, 870 and a Wilson 45.

See you guys on the board!

I was just up at the range on S. Cushman the otherday, and I saw someone with what looked like a preban 16" AR. If that was any of you, I'm the guy there that was bump firing the 20".

Hey -
 My name is Jared and I don't currently live in AK, but I am up there enough to seem like it.  I live in the Seattle area, but my family owns a fishing lodge on Wrangell and I work for a Co. that does mineral exploration  near Kotzebue. I go up to Fairbanks, Anchorage and Nome once every couple of months - I am at Wrangell more frequently.  I am 29 married w/4kids.

John checking in.  Live in Fairbanks, Retired from the ARMY in 01. 11B5V.  Thought I had had enough of the black rifle after I retired, but I just couldn't get it out of my system, now I have a Colt HBAR and LMT M4.  Life is good.  Went to the S Cushman range last week -6 degrees.  It was a good day, only had to ask one person not to point his muzzle at me.  Into reloading, hunting, and shooting.  Stay warm and stay safe.
Link Posted: 12/3/2004 12:08:06 PM EST
John,

Great to hear from another from Fairbanks.  You, uafgrad, and I should get together sometime and have ourselves a time of it at the range.  I'm usually out of town but I am taking much of the summer off.  I'll bring my NFA toys, plenty of ammo, and the Tannerite!  When I am in town and the weather permits, I am at the range almost everyday.  See ya there!

Hello,  I'm George and I live in Fairbanks.  I'm a computer technician and a computer gamer.  I'm 34, married, and have no kids.  I'm always up for going shooting, but not at -20.

Well George, there was a machinegun shoot this last weekend but I'm told no one showed up.  It was -25F.  Go figure.  I would have showed up.  If you know me you know I'm not joking...
Link Posted: 12/24/2004 4:14:04 AM EST
I'm up for shooting pretty much any time, though my schedule usually precludes me from shooting during human hours.  

On a side note...
I am interested in getting a gong 8" or so that will stand upto 223 and 308 (22325-100 yds and 308 200+)  Anyone know where I can find such a beast?
Thanks
Chris

Hello Alaskan's!
Man I envy all of you living the good life up there-it has always been my dream to live in Alaska-I am 47 with a varied background-right now I spend half of my time working for Uncle Sam in the GWOT and I am fixin' to deploy again in January-my civilian occupation is related to earth science/water management/groundwater modeling-what are the employment opportunities like up there?  Any chance of buying property in 40-80 acre parcels?  I would love to be able to correspond with a few of you guys-one day I am going to move my family out of Florida and have considered Alaska as an option-I may have to wait to until the retirement checks start rolling in though-
Regards from chilly Florida (36 degrees-rainy and wind)
Mike

Hello Alaska
This is AkBearcat (Larry), checking in to see who is out there.  I have recently returned from an all expense paid vacation to the northern desert of Iraq. It is wonderful to be home.  My wife and I have a Colt AR15A2 that we use to hunt varmints and just have fun with.  Since I have returned we had gotten a Bushmaster BAR10 (308), A3 barrel, A2 stock and 20" barrel.  I have installed a 3x9 scope for now and a Harris bipod.  Hope to replace the trigger group next and start really getting it ready.  Ready for what you say, caribou, black bear, wolves and just having fun.  We live in Palmer, have our own shooting range.  I hope that you all do not hold it against me but I work for the Army National Guard on Ft Richardson.
Good Shooting
Link Posted: 3/26/2005 11:44:13 PM EST
Welcome Larry,

I must be out of the loop as I don't see the stigma of working ANG on Ft. Rich.  However, it seems to me as a member with his own private range, with a little open invitation, and perhaps even accompanied by the incidental BBQ, you could go quite far in alleviating any ill will.
Link Posted: 3/27/2005 1:20:01 AM EST
Link Posted: 3/27/2005 8:03:39 PM EST
BBQ sounds good but since I was unable to hunt last year, the meat locker is a little on the bare side.  Hope to be able to do some hunting this next season.  The range off the back porch is not much, just some dirt piled up and lots of tires piled up in front of them.  Every once in a while I have to tear it down and rebuild it.
I enjoy the work that I do for the Army Guard and the local areas.  Of course we are going more and more places and for longer periods of time.  This last year in Iraq was a challenge to say the least.  Learned lots and would do it again.
