    Any mountain bikers out there 2.0

    Congrats on your new Yeti, Tono! If it weren't for EMTB's I would have to give up riding because it's too exhausting on a MTB once I hit a grade, especially in the loose cinders prevalent where I live. I recently bought my fantasy EMTB, a Husqvarna Extreme Cross with 200mm travel :D:cool:. Man...

    Rifle Scopes Scope Alternatives for Vortex Razor Gen II

    It's the diminishing returns aspect for the most part. Basically paying double or more than the G2 Cronus for small nuances. Yes, my March HM 5-42 and my S&B are nicer scopes and they better be for the price but for me it's not worth the money anymore to get those nuances. However I do need...

    Rifle Scopes Scope Alternatives for Vortex Razor Gen II

    I almost think spending the extra $ on anything besides a Cronus "Gen2" to be a "not worth it" situation. I absolutely love mine. I had S&B's, still have one, have two March, had USO, and NF NXS, I have to say that I'm not planning on buying anymore expensive scopes because the G2 is that good...

    Any mountain bikers out there 2.0

    Ouch! Last year I was goofing around with my bike on a silty dirt road swerving back and forth to see how much traction I had. Out of nowhere the front end slipped out as if I was on ice and I fell on top of the bike receiving a BIG gash the thickness of the spike sticking out of the pedal into...

    Athlon FFP Helos BTR G2 2-12x42 in hand!

    My friend has a Strike Eagle that has turrets that don't line up well as well as a not so good indistinct feel??? Glass was decent though. I didn't dislike it but I do like the Helos G2's a lot.

    200 yards with rimfire

    That's my old barn. It's safer shooting onto my own property from out in the forest service rather than from the barn to the FS where I have no backstop if I miss.

    200 yards with rimfire

    Some reasons might be, and this is just IMHO. The bearing surface on these slugs is very short, these slugs are swaged so they are super consistent in weight and dimension and I use a lubricant on them. Also I have an aftermarket and high quality regulator in the gun. Other than these there...

    200 yards with rimfire

    My dope is 10.4 mils at 200Y with a 50Y zero. The ES is pretty low, around 10 fps. The round steel is 15.5" wide. Here's 5 hits at 175Y on the 2/3 IPSC that I shot this morning, three of them were shot one after the other all in the center. There's one more right there with those three as...

    200 yards with rimfire

    Here's two 5 shot groups at 200Y with my AGT Uragan 25 cal pcp air rifle. Keep in mind these are only .07 G1 BC 29gr "slugs/swaged lead bullets at 922 fps.

    Any mountain bikers out there 2.0

    Here's my old year 2000 full suspension bike. I wonder if it's vintage yet? After some health problems in 2019, and trying to get in reasonable shape again, I found that I was getting too exhausted riding ole blue so I bought an Ebike. That Bakcou made a huge difference in my health! Even with...

    McCloskeys Plead Guilty

    What would have been the most appropriate course of action and still be within the law if BLM started tearing stuff up?

    McCloskeys Plead Guilty

    I wonder what would have happened if the couple had used paint ball guns and actually shot at the crowd?? Or if they didn't shoot PB guns at the crowd?

    AZ ELR High Payout Series (infancy phase)

    Suggestions - IMHO your friend should "include" rather than "exclude". Just tossing out ideas here. There's no reason you can't have both a pro division and a standard division. The pro division could require the higher $500 entry fee. It's self regulating due the high price of entry, meaning...

    AZ ELR High Payout Series (infancy phase)

    Honestly I'm not sure?? But at least it's an idea in case JB is having problems sourcing a place to hold his events.

    AZ ELR High Payout Series (infancy phase)

    Contact Ed with The Big Sandy machine gun shoot. These guys have plenty of privately owned land to shoot ELR and often are looking for someone to put on events with them. Good luck in your venture, man that would be tons of fun to try!!!
