You caught a good break with that.Screwdriver wrote:I heard he got 10+ years. I think he liked it and did not know how to shoot it. It was in the same condition as when it was stolen.
My local dealer actually had my particular .22LR of choice in stock the other day (not that I needed any because I still have over 2K rounds from before the scare) and I almost picked up a brick. NOT, no way I was paying $39.95 for 330 rounds of CCI. Even if it was Mini Mag I would have hard time swallowing that price.The Mastiff wrote:I often wished I would have bought a Ruger Mk II over the lase few decades. They are great to shoot and about the only thing I could afford to shoot nowadays. I was pricing 5.56 and 7.62 ball surplus and it's down to just over twice what it used to sell for. I recall buying 200 round battle packs of German or Portugese ( NATO) stamped .308 for $30 to $40 . 300 round cans of M855 Lake city for maybe $79 ? Seems like less but I can't recall.
My son inherited the .22 rifle which was a practical choice if you want to do some actual shooting and still save money every month like he should be doing at his age. It's up from the $.50 per box of 50 I used to pay but even reloading .38 sp or 9mm isn't affordable on my, or his salary to go shooting monthly much less than weekly like I used to when I was his age.
What good are the best made firearms if you can't shoot them and at least become competent with them?

I don't know about 22's but in other rounds of ammo they use tungsten powder in a jacket. It's heavier than lead, and in powder form it isn't going to make it an illegal "armor piercing" bullet. In shotguns they have used steel, tungsten, and something else I can't recall.22s are all lead so if they can't find a suitable alternative then what.
Yep, this.Henry - get both wrote:I looked at it online. I don't have interest in a .380 that isn't a pocket gun.
Why do they refuse to make a 9mm single stack? It's what everybody wants!Henry - get both wrote:I looked at it online. I don't have interest in a .380 that isn't a pocket gun.
