    Wow, I LOVE it! Took it plinking in the woods. It is dead nuts on at 15 to 20 yards. I did a whole magazine bouncing a pop can with every shot. Put a 4" pinecone on the bank 15 yards away, and...

    I would have preferred a .380 CZ 83, but in Commiefornia I am limited to private party transfer on pistols not on the approved list. The .380 offer a wider assortment of loads, but the 9x18 has a...

    Besides being crazy accurate (even with 9x18 steel case), it is also one of the most fun pistols I have ever owned to shoot! The S&W Shield 9mm that was my EDC piece before the CZ 82, was not fun to...

    Picked up a VG to EXC CZ 82 9x19

    Through the years I have had two CZ 82s and one CZ 83 (.380). I love them, and they are incredibly accurate for a service pistol, especially a Com-Block one! I sold my CZ83 about four years back...
  5. My 2014 post on a 2007 AK torture test

    Thought some folks would enjoy reading this again. About 2007 there was an article on the "Associated Content" web page before Yahoo bought it out. It was a 10,000 round torture test of an early GP...
  6. Just put a MAADI MISR SA in Commiefornia 10 day jail.

    Was at my local dealer's when he asked me if I would be interested in a "basket case" AK project. It is an MISR barreled receiver (with threads turned off), along with a big bag of all the parts to...
  7. Update, sort of Now I have Both!

    He actually asked to have the .38 instead of the 45! He said he never could master the 45 and could not hit "the broad side of a barn" with the 1911, even though he qualified expert with the rifle.

    My dad had an Inland with an adjustable rear sight on Iwo. No bayonet lug, though. He had a M1 Garand bayo issued as a knife. He was an NCO and also had an S&W Victory model .38 instead of a .45.

    Well, a good friend has a serious coyote problem, and I made the mistake of telling him how good of a coyote whacker my Mini-30 is. So he borrowed it for a bit.

    Nope, no problems at all with this box. 100%. The last box of Kings Mill (different lot number) had about 20% dead primers. I have to say the Kings Mill had noticeably more snap than the reloads...

    When my dad was on Iwo Jima, he had an Inland M1 Carbine. Instead of an M3 fighting knife, however, he said he was just issued an M1 Garand bayonet. Only thing he used it for (thank God) was...

    I am a fan of the 7.62x39 round, even though I am not a fan of the AK platform (even though I have had a bunch of them through the years) To me the Mini-30 is the perfect platform for the 7.62x39. ...

    I also like the Rainier plated bullets, just a s cheap. 14.6 grains of WW296, and they print the same POA/POI as the 110 Remingtons.
