Guns • Re: .22 ammo

April 24, 2017 orangetom1999 0

Just got back from a week in a rented cabin up in the mountains near Waynesboro, Virginia.

This cabin is some 12 miles outside of the city of Waynesboro, Virginia …close enough to come to town for the stores and far enough out to be out of cell phone range. No cable tv here. Beautiful up there in the mountains with a stream flowing downhill behind the cabin.

Stopped by the local country store and bought some .22 long rifle. Five boxes …250 rounds. It was some $3.50 per 50 rounds . Later in the week I returned for 5 more boxes and have put them all away.

Carried two short guns with me and carried concealed the whole time we were about town or anywhere. This group at the cabin had three men and one woman who had concealed carry permits. We carried steel with us every time we went about. Not looking for trouble…but this is also black bear country. They occasionally come down and raid the trash cans at the local picnic areas. The trash cans are usually and immediately ceded to them…the picnic areas shut down by wildlife management. But now days we are more concerned with the nature of two legged wildlife…of all kinds…and there were young children with the group.

Carried my favored Ruger GP 100 in four inch barrel…357 Mag….and alternated on occasion with a S & W Model 57 six inch 41 Mag. Speed loaders for both.

The rest preferred to carry 9MM autos of some kind.

I did not see any .22 long rifle in the case at the local Wal Mart. Same thing here locally for years now…back at home…at the local Wal Mart. Haven’t seen any in years here. Occasionally at Bass Pro..but not at Wal Mart.

Wondering if it will become more locally available than in the last 8 years.

Had a great time in the mountains and are planning next years trip to the cabin. Caught some trout and had them for dinner. Trout make for a great meal. Like them even for breakfast with eggs.

Thanks,
Orangetom

Oh yes, Ruger is definitely one of the best brands out there. From my experience if you buy a Ruger you will get what you pay for and more. Now, about getting that permit…

If you’re running corrosive ammo you have to remove the salts. Regular solvents dont do this. The cheapest way is hot soapy water or Windex. If your is rusted it needs replaced unless accuracy is of no concern.

Now here’s a cool thing.
In case this doesn’t load, It’s a headboard with a push open compartment for your rifle. A person would just have to raise their hands over their head and there it is.

Great article. I like this part because I think doing something like this while I wait for the judge.

“When it comes to defensive pistol practice, airsoft and BB pistols are useful training tools. Some of these are extremely realistic and operate exactly like a real pistol, such as the ASP line from SIG Sauer. It’s a simple matter to make a “bullet trap” for one out of a cardboard box stuffed with newspaper, and you can recover the BBs and use them over again. I’ve found them to be useful for all kinds of practice but especially appreciate using them to work on controlling the sights and pressing the trigger. Another option could be to invest in a laser training system, like those from LaserLyte. If you look around, you’ll find many laser training ystems varying in cost from several dollars to a few hundred dollars.”

One thing they didn’t mention that also needs continual practice as part of your home pistol defense is malfunction drills. When I do my dry firing practice at home, I always incorporate class 1 and 3 malfunction drills into it. When I’m in the man-cave doing my practice, its a sure bet there’s a mess of magazines and snap caps all over the place.
Lest we not forget the occasional “What the hell is going on down there??” from the wife reacting to the noise of the slide snapping, mags hitting the ground, and snap caps bouncing off of everything…and disappearing into the abyss of the basement floor.

Many people don’t know this, but if you are currently a law enforcement officer or a retired law enforcement officer, you do not need a permit to carry. President Bush signed into law after 9/11 a bill called the law enforcement officers security act (leosa). My retirement ID is stamped LEOSA, allowing anybody with that stamp on their ID to carry in any state in the U.S., no permit needed.

$2.00 for a back ground check, heck I paid $5.00 several months ago, I guess I got ripped off.

Hey Photon, did you check out http://www.pennswoods.net on the guns?

So as a federal law enforcement officer were you by any chance a federal marshall? From what I know it was Clinton that signed the bill that current and retired LEOs could carry in all 50 states. When I bought a handgun last Wednesday I had to pay $2 for the background check. Maybe they lowered it within the last few months. $5 isn’t bad considered I had to pay $10 for the background check when I bought a rifle this past Saturday in Nashville TN. And in NJ its $15 for the background check after you get the FID card and a handgun permit if you want to buy a handgun and to get the FID card and permit you have to pay around $40 or $50 and then wait around for months usually.

And I did check the website. They’ve got some good stuff. I see there’s going to be this big gun show this weekend, unfortunately I will not be able to be there.

If you buy from a private individual (shot gun/rifle) you do not need a NCIC check).

I have purchased many, many rifles/shotguns at flea markets and private individuals, can’t be traced backed to me.

Also this includes black powder weapons, including black powder pistols, no check, no permit, I have many rifles and pistols, no checks at all and no permit.

Its the PICS check you have to go through in Pennsylvania, provided you’re buying from an FFL. Federal law says you have to go through a background check whenever you buy a firearm from an FFL and in PA its called a PICS. The background check in PA only costs $2 as opposed to Tennessee where you have to pay $10. I just bought a rifle in TN and payed $10 for the background check.

Supposedly you don’t have to go through a background check when purchasing from a private seller and they do make kits where you can build your own receiver which is the one part of the gun which is regulated and which would require a background check when purchasing from an FFL. A receiver that you build yourself would of course be untraceable. Black powder guns are considered primitive weapons by federal law and thus there is no federal requirement to undergo a background check when purchasing black powder guns although some states might require it.

Glad to see you back, longrifle! Truck/motorcycle “disagreements” can be VERY nasty, with the MC usually losing the argument. Hope you’re fully recovered, or at least mostly so.

Some ammo is “dirtier” than others, and needs more serious cleaning of the bore than with “cleaner” ammo, or corrosion can definitely be an issue. Whenever we shoot, (especially with the “dirtier” ammo) we take our guns OUTSIDE (because this is MESSY and you do NOT want to be doing it in the house!) spray Break-Free CLP down BOTH ends of the barrel until it is DRIPPING, then let is “set for several minutes to soak in. After that, we use the copper wire “brush” rod attachment, and scrub it REALLY well, follow up with bore snake/wool mop, then run a patch through. If it comes out dirty, repeat until the patch comes out clean.

Congratulations AuntBee, NY is so far left they’re almost as bad as the left coast states.

Here in PA, you go to the county sheriff, fill out a form, wait 15 minutes until your NCIC check comes back, get your picture taken and you’re good for 5 years. At 4 years 9 months later, you get a post card from the sheriff’s office reminding you to re-new your permit. I can’t remember exactly, but I think I paid $15.00 for 5 year permit.

Were you shooting foreign made 22 ammo? If so there is no telling what they used for a primer material. All of the ammo I see lately is made in a foreign country and there have been many that don’t go bang. I had some Winchester made in Australia that had a 10% misfire rate, will never buy it again. Some companies still use mercury for primer material and it will destroy your bore if you don’t immediately clean it after firing.

Survived the 6 hour class. I learned a lot that I thought I knew already. And they gave us cookies. So now begins the long wait for the sheriff and the judge. It’s encouraging to me that there are so many people who are pro 2A even without the Odrama influence. I think we’re going to need to be armed soon. More about that in another thread.

OAR, I appreciate the offer, and if I had a motorhome, I might take you up on it. Then I could do an APN tour, inviting myself everywhere. The Walmart electric cart won’t cut it for long distance travel.

Guns • Rusty AR barrel

April 17, 2017 longrifle 0

I just got back into shooting after a year off because of a disagreement between my motorcycle and a truck and noticed one of my AR barrels filled with rust. I have not found any other firearms with the slightest bit of rust besides this one. The only difference between this and my other AR is that I run a 22 rim fire adapter in this rifle and not the other one. The were kept side by side in a locker with a dehumidifier, in a basement with 2 dehumidifiers running, and I ran an oily patch through them after the accident but do not remember if I cleaned this one good or not. The only thing I can think of is that something in the rim fire ammo caused the corrosion. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
