Ron, you got any suggestions for a 7mm mag scope? Thinking 4-12 power, long eye relief, and sub $200. You seen any out there?

Istalled the "Slidefire" stock on my AR-15 this weekend and took it out for a test....Holy mother of Moses...worked perfectly...not even a learning cruve...It dumps a mag in about 2 seconds...Need to break out my BETA C-mag next time out and try not to cook the barrel. Raised a few looks from other shooters nearby. Maybe bring some tannerite and really make some noise next time.

Good luck hitting tannerite at 100+ yards with the Slidefire... Fastest way to send lots of cash downrange though :)

Thanks for the responses to my question. I will be doing some more research. Hunt will be in Northern NM. I will definitely practice but cant imagine hazarding a shot more than 200-300 yards. Thoughts on a guide? Necessary?

Good marksmanship and personal experience with a given system is far superior to bigger and louder.

I'm searching for the right optic for my long range .243 because I am very comfortable with it....been shooting it for 26 years.

I'll still pack my model 90 30-30 in the sticks, even backpacking, if bears are a concern. It's solid and I'm very good with it, despite it's weight and size.

jonnyrig, I looked through a Vortex scope a few weeks ago and was amazed!
And this is coming from a dyed-in-the-wool Nikon freak.

If you don't know anyone out there already or aren't planning on going with a local, a guide makes a lot of sense. More for just maximizing your time than anything else. They can also advise you on the typical ranges you're likely to be shooting at. I don't know much about NM but a lot of the terrain out West opens up pretty fast... Long range really often is 400+ yards...

Yeah, here in NV there are a lot of opportunities to shoot across canyons in sage country that are 4-500 yards. Sometimes it takes a ton of work to get any closer. I won't shoot those distances myself; but there are plenty of other people who are comfortable with that range.

Ron, I'll try to get by over there if possible. Haven't heard of Vortex. I have a friend who's looking for his 7mag, I don't have one.

A game of Russian roulette ended with the death of a Southern California teenager, who shot himself in the head early Monday, authorities said.

The 17-year-old boy fatally shot himself inside an apartment in the West Carson community, an unincorporated area near Torrance, just after midnight, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Read between the lines! If people start building AR style pistols in other calibers, those too will be subject to the same type of ban.

Read between the lines - if other armor piercing weapons become popular with the militia types, those weapons too will be outlawed.

Absurd.

Criminals have body armor too!

ATF wants to geld the citizenry, and the ones that are already pussies welcome it.



I can't believe they will outlaw 5.56mm.

The reversal is not on all 5.56 or .223 fmj, only on the common 62 grain "green tip" SS109 projectile. It's a pointless decision that will ban more common ammunition for no reason other than political nonsense.

If the guberment wants to 'geld the citizenry' they need only shutter McDonalds.

The Armed Citizen:
A Las Vegas woman who was shot to death in front of her home had gone looking for the man who, minutes earlier, had confronted her in a road-rage incident, police said Tuesday.

Tammy Meyers, 44, was giving her 15-year-old daughter a driving lesson Thursday night when she was involved in a confrontation with another driver. Police initially said Meyers and her daughter had gone home after the incident and were calling for help when a car pulled up and someone inside opened fire.

Police now say Meyers, after returning home, went searching for the other driver. She was joined by her 22-year-old son, who had a gun, police said in a news conference Tuesday. The pair drove around looking for a gray or silver sedan. Meyers and her son found the vehicle, police said, and followed it for a while before Meyers decided to go home.

Once home, a silver or gray sedan drove into their cul-de-sac, police said, and someone began shooting at them. Meyers' son returned fire, and the car sped off. Meyers was hit. She died two days later after being taken off life support, her family said.

Hell no! Shuttering McPoison would anger the FSA and cause mass riots, second only to perhaps shutting off the EBT cards!

One person is dead, another is in jail, and both would be sitting at home happily tonight if either of them hadn't been armed. These aren't anecdotes, they happen every day, at least ten times more often than anyone lawfully using a gun to defend themselves. Don't mind the evidence, stick to your principles, they're all you've got. Freedom ain't free, give me liberty at the cost of someone else's death, or 10,000 deaths.
