• Is there a positive way I can deter my neighbors kid from shooting wild life with a pellet gun?

    Where I live there is some wildlife. We recently had the fires here and nature has been slowly returning. I could recently see on a large burnt tree there were several pairs of mourning doves in the branches and ground squirrels all around the ground. I am worried because I know that once doves have their young it takes two parents to raise them. When I see the kid shooting, he is aiming towards the tree. I asked politely to "please do not shoot the birds" and first they said it was their property. I said it doesn't matter you can't shoot birds. Then they said they were only shooting in the ground. I don't want enemies next door so I stopped there. Now I see a pair of the doves has a pair of babies on a brick wall right outside my window. If this kid shoots one of them, the babies will die. They otherwise seem like nice people.

  • Can a 5.5mm rifle kill a hog?

    Best answer: Shot placement is everything. That will kill a hog. I recommend either right in the ear or in the brain stem. Top of the neck, base of the skull. Vitals can do it too just be sure to go behind the shoulder. That caliber won't penetrate the shoulder blade of a big hog. Remember this for vital shots. "Shoot... show more
    Best answer: Shot placement is everything. That will kill a hog. I recommend either right in the ear or in the brain stem. Top of the neck, base of the skull. Vitals can do it too just be sure to go behind the shoulder. That caliber won't penetrate the shoulder blade of a big hog. Remember this for vital shots. "Shoot them high, watch them die. Shoot them low, watch them go." But the ear is the best bet. Soft spot with a direct channel to the brain. And a very definable target spot. Brain stem can be tricky because you don't have any real defining features to show exactly where it is. DON'T take frontal shots unless you're getting charged. At least not to the skull. Go just behind the skull if you can and you'll either hit the brain stem, a major artery or vitals if it's centered. Multiple shots are common with hogs. So don't be afraid to pull the trigger a few times. Especially if it's charging. Shoot til the damn thing quits breathing because he will mess you up if he gets to you. <150 yards.

  • Question about .410 bore chamber inserts?

    I have seen the chamber inserts, or adapters, for .410 bore that allows the same gun to fire .22 LR, .17 HMR, .38 Special, 9mm Luger and 32 S&W and I want to know if it is possible to make a safe to shoot .410 to .223 Remington adapter. Would it be alright to make and shoot or would it be a terrible idea?

  • Why do people say storing a magazine fully loaded damages the spring?

I've never once see a video showing a firearm malfunctioning due to long term magazine spring compression. Why do so many people say keeping mags fully loaded is bad but never show any real proof that it does harm to the function of the mags?

    Best answer: Stop. You are going to install a new barrel yourself...….. and you have no idea what the torque specifications are??????

    Your are gonna have a real hard time on date night removing some girls bra with only two fingers on each hand...…. assuming she is ok with half your face and one ear missing.

    There are books at Amazon.com that for just $18 will save you from enduring multiple surgeries, months of pain pills and more months of physical therapy. Put down the wrench, go order "The Complete AR-15 Assembly Guide" and wait patiently by the mail box.

    Me. I did not take a two week armorer class because I liked playing with AR's. I took it because I was sick and tired of my match rifles being stuck in the local gun shop for weeks waiting on a 20 minute job.

    I have remove Colt factory barrels that were installed with less than 16lbs of torque. On match barrels I have gone as high as 85lb of torque and they fired like a champ. The actual military and commercial specification is 35lb. If the gas tube does not line up, then you loosen and remove the barrel, then insert and try again. Keep doing it until it aligns. (basically every time you cram the steel barrel into the softer aluminum receiver it should give a tiny bit".

    There are pitfalls to barrel removal. Like if the guy before you used Locktite instead of anti-seize. You will need to apply heat to defeat the Lock-tite. Problem is the aluminum receiver is going to act like a huge heat sink and pull it way from the barrel. That could warp the receiver. Do not apply heat close to the nut - get about 8" farther down the barrel and no closer.....slowly heat up the whole barrel. Take your time.

    You do have a full of Go, Field and NO GO 300 Blackout gauges for installing this new barrel, right? And a full set of 5.56mm Go, Field and NO GO so you can put the old barrel back on - right?

    Honestly - a smart bunny would not remove an already well mounted barrel. A smart bunny would buy a new receive and all the parts to make a new upper. Why? Because if the new barrel does not work - jam, no cycle, no feed, no eject or all the things that can go wrong...…….. why, you would always have the old upper to put on and verify the issue was not the lower.

    I highly recommend you give this up for the moment. I would like you to do two things. First, order that book. Second, find someone in your local gun club or range with experience ripping these apart and putting them together..... get them to mentor you. There is no thinking or logic involved in assembling an AR - you do it the correct way or you turn it into a pile of junk parts that don't function or shoot well.... or worse, and IED.

    Please do the right thing. Be a smart bunny and be safe.

  • Why pump action for home defense?

    When i think of a home defense gun i think of some tactical pump action. But wouldn’t it be better to have a semi automatic shotgun. So when you are disorinted at 3 in the morning you won’t have to deal with pumping the gun where as the semi auto would do it for you.

  • What type of gun is this?

    Best answer: How does it shoot caseless slugs? Powder charge or compressed air?

    If powder is added and then a slug is inserted, your friend likely has a black powder rifle. They use slugs.

    If compressed air is used, your friend has an air rifle. They use pellets.

  • I'm looking to sell my Glock 21 gen 4. What's a reasonable price to ask?

    Best answer: $425-$450 is reasonable, however, it all depends on who you are selling to.

    Best answer: $425-$450 is reasonable, however, it all depends on who you are selling to.
    (I feel that I should throw a figure at you... move on, and wait 3 days for another anonymous question to come along)
    If you bought new at full retail from a store then you have taxes and store`s profit that you will never get back plus the privilege of "deflorating" with the 200 rounds you claim.
    Great that you kept the box and all the things that came with the purchase because if you sell to a gun show dealer or broker of some sort that will be a big +.
    A used Glock like NIB is a good seller so the dealer can expect a quick flip and really doesn`t expect a large profit margin like on some slow movers.
    The best buyer is one of your acquaintances that you know that is low risk and feel is law abiding. Then expect $499 just to keep below $500 and not lose a friend that pays no sales tax as you did.
    Think about the CYA rule when selling to anyone so an informal bill of sale both seller and buyer in a state that permits private sales is wise. After all...your personal info is somewhere in the bowels of the institute that sold you the gun.
    If you are bored at all the added info then I was right assuming you wanted a brief figure (that would be false hope) that would make you happy and I should have moved on.
    Bean fact: If you want to know what sentimental value is worth....take it to a pawn shop and let them explain.
