Try “OpticsPlanet”, they seem to have good quality stuff. It all depends on how much you plan to spend…they have the bottom of the barrel stuff (Gen.1)-300.00 plus; up to Good quality-High end for 4000.00-5000.00 and up, for (Gen.4). I’ve shopped around for good quality optics, and they have some of the best prices.
I’m always looking for a reputable place to buy some quality optics at a decent price.

You can always let your local law enforcement (police dept.) know your going on vacation.

I live “semi rural” if that is what you want you want to call it any more; but our local law enforcement will do a drive by and check on your home and look for anything suspicious for you, if your comfortable with that and trusting of them.

That is not a 24/7 guarantee but it may help.

You can always set lights on timers, set for different times so it looks like someone is home, 5, 10, 15 minutes in different rooms.

Leave a car in your drive.
Stop your mail and local paper.
Do this a couple of days in advance so you know its working.
Good Luck
Enjoy your Vaca….

If you don’t have any luck, you can always try a gun show in your area.

I’ve found some parts that were hard to find at them.

If you can get a blue print of the gun, you might be able to find that screws by other means (hardware ????) or make it yourself, just a thought.
Good Luck.

Both guns are good choices,I would lean towards the Browning-for semi-auto. Have you looked at a Walther p-22, also a nice gun.
Like BK said, a 22 semi can give you problems and the only time this happens is when you need it the most. For a first or reliable 22, I would look at a revolver… S&W, airlite’s – in a 22 are nice but pricey.
Glad to see you back :thumbsup:

March 13, 2017 handyman777 0

Just a thought:::on your drilling and tapping–I use crisco (cheap and goes a long way), not cutting oil or tapping fluid, not as messy works great and extends the life of the tap. Drilling – koolmist deluded w/water just enough so your parts don’t rust. As I’m sure you know—I start the tap in reverse in the hole so it finds center and then put it forward and tap the hole, also I counter sink or chamfer the hole (first before I tap) so the tap can find home and there is no burr when the tap comes out.
If I have many holes to do I use a cordless drill and a chamfering tool to do this-You can get these in high speed steel or carbide $$$ which works good on stainless.
Who ever is doing the welding, Nice Work, It looks real neat and professional.
just my 2 cents.

That said, I have been looking for a smith and wesson model 610, revolver, they shoot 10mm and can also shoot 40 cal. w/moon clips. just another one to add to the collection. Once this is acquired then maybe I’ll look for a pistol in 40 cal., to complement one another.

Put a trigger lock on it and keep your (clip-mag) loaded and separate.
Just keep the key for the lock handy or use a combination trigger lock and have it off by one number so its quick and easy to open.
Most states if the the bullets and gun are separate you should be OK.
If its in your go-bag, you still have to dig it out. Its not concealed on your person.
I would try and find the rules for the different states you travel…cali. and new york???? I don’t know how they work, not good from what I hear.

February 24, 2017 handyman777 0

Everyone has a good point. I have to agree with terp, for a self defense shot you don’t have time to use ANY sights…I practice with (gun empty) in the house and use a electrical outlet for my target, about 30 ft, thats about 3″ by 4″ square…point-aim and than “check my sights” to see how close I am. 90% of the time I’m dead on.

Don’t know if this makes any sense but this is my way of (point-aim) practice. Works for me.

Now if you can do this and hit a 8 1/2 X 11 piece of paper or 9″ paper plate with live rounds at 10 yards (and no sights) I would think you have a good defensive shot.

handyman777 thanks on the advice about the needed tools will add them to the list .
I think the first one will be with the 1×7 m4 barrel , the 1×7 should do better at longer ranges . I hope to build a nice little AR that will be as good as the competition rifles being built . The ammo I have purchased so far has been BT SP for hunting in several different brands .will have to see what it likes to eat when I get all the parts and put them together . I got all the ammo my brother had after he passed away so I have a good supply put back green black and orange tips along with hunting type ammo in 556 .

One (must have) tool I forgot to list is a vice block for your upper receiver; you will need this when you install the barrel nut and they should come with an alignment tool for the gas tube.

I’m more familiar with the rifles with the gas tube, then the piston driven models.
I googled the piston and found that its really a mixed opinion, just like everything else.
I figure if it works for me why change it….and have to keep more spare parts on hand.

I use a browning dark ops. It has the no-glow IR flash.
Colored pictures for day and black and white at night, it takes pics. out to 70 ft +/-
It worked great for night time surveillance, play the card back in my tablet and save the pics. I needed.
Whats nice is you can set this in different locations, where you think you may need it..small, compact and easily concealable. not like a permanent set up on your home and if you have an intruder they may be able to pick up on your surveillance system attached to your home.
Both are good but a trail cam is mobile.

ajax-get the tools you need for the job…barrel wrench, torque wrench(for barrel nut)…etc. , and a good schematic for the build. Its easy and a good learning experience.Watch some you tube videos.

I’ve made special tools-“that 5/64 roll pin on the front sight for the gas tube is not easy to install”, same with that little C-clip on the rod for the dust cover door. If you have old eyes get a pair of 3X glasses.

So over time I’ve made a few tools to make the job easier.

My last “upper” build, and this was completely stripped (lots of parts)…I went “old school”-used an A2 upper (permanent carry handle-not flat top). Barrel- m4 1:7, 16″ mid-length gas block and iron sights–interesting rifle — old tech – met – new tech.
Only problem I have found with this build was the m4 feed ramps did not want to work with the A2 upper (hit and miss – feeding issue) so I used some small round jewelers files and round stones and opened up and polished the feed ramps on the receiver. some mags worked some didn’t and i want every mag to work. Seems to work on a dry run still have to check under fire.

I know some people don’t care for the (a2 style – carry handle but this was something I wanted…nice lite rifle,just over 6 lbs.

Only thing I found was a little high in calcium. water spots on glass.
Second well (back-up) is only 20 ft works for all my outdoor use and emergencies if needed, a windmill would work nice on this.
