    Hunting & Fishing Texas Whitetail Doe - 300 BLK

    I took a doe with my AAC Micro 7 shooting a Barnes 110 TAC-TX. It was a 75 yard shot. She was head down and I hit her at the base of the skull. The round exited the neck with good expansion and a nice exit wound. It almost completely severed the right rear foot as well. A nice clean kill with no...

    Movie Theater The Road (I know this is a bit older, just saw it)

    I enjoyed the movie, it is a thinking film and goes against the grain. There are no winners, only hardship. I often refer back to that movie when I think about SHTF / prepping. I really need to get a copy of the book.

    Hunting & Fishing What scope are you all using on Hunting Rigs

    Leupold VX-3 3.5-10 x 40 w/ CDS 1/4 MOA knob on a 30.06. I've used it to shoot deer & pigs out to 250 yards, mostly from a stand or ground blind. If I know I'm shooting past that I typically go to a different rifle.

    Modify HS Precision stock or new stock?

    I have a Remington M 700 5R, cut down to 22", threaded w/ TBAC Brake installed, FDE cerakote, Timney trigger installed (all done by Hill Country Rifles) that is still in the original HS Precision stock. I like the stock but would like to go to a detachable mag system and maybe something with...

    Sidearms & Scatterguns what is your other concealed carry?

    My main carry is a Springfield TRP in a Comp-Tac Minotaur MTAC. For days when I don't want to carry that much gun, I've got a really cool S&W 640 no-dash 38 marked "Tested For +P+" that I carry in a Remora.

    Rifle Scopes Leupold VX-R 3-9x40mm

    I'd say it is an excellent choice for a hunting rifle. An alternative could be the VX-3 3.5-10 CDS which gives you external .25 MOA clicks (I've got one on my 30.06). I'm thinking of building a lighter weight hunting setup and looking at the VX-R 2-7 or VX-3 2.5-8.

    OK I give up.

    I'm sure the RE15 is on the shelf next to the Varget I've been looking for.

    Hunting & Fishing Rifle scope for New Hunting Rig?!

    I've got a Leupold VX3 3.5-10 CDS on a hunting rifle in 30.06 and really like it. It is well suited for a normal distance hunting rifle and I've shot out to 400 yards at steel with it. I'm considering a lightweight 308 hunting build and looking at the VX3 2.5-8 or the VXR 2-7.

    Rifle Scopes Entry Level Optic

    I used an SWFA 10x for a year or so. It is a great scope for the money. One thing to consider is scope diameter. I wanted a 30mm scope so that when I upgraded glass I didn't have to upgrade rings as well.

    Any Roadies Out There

    Nice ride. I'm real fond of Carl's work myself. The Strong isn't really a true "road bike" though; it has canti's and can easily handle 35c cross tires. I've got a bit of a thing for cross bikes...

    Rifle Scopes AAC Micro 7 Ring Height Preference

    I went with a set of Seekins low rings and will post pictures when I get the rifle put together.

    Rifle Scopes AAC Micro 7 Ring Height Preference

    Does anyone have a preference for ring height on the AAC Micro 7? I bought the rifle last week and have an SWFA SS 1-6 on the way. I know I can run the lowest rings available, but was wondering if anyone has a preference on ring height due to the adjustable cheek riser? I've tried searching...

    Rifle Scopes SWFA SS 10x42 or Something Else

    I don't personally have any rifles that are "range only". I've taken all my rifles hunting and the fixed 10x is a bit limiting in that regard. I keep my scopes mostly dialed to minimum until I'm on target and adjust up from there based on time and conditions. For rings, I've used Badger...

    Rifle Scopes SWFA SS 10x42 or Something Else

    I started with the SWFA SS 10x and still have it as a backup scope. It is very solid and got me through my first precision rifle course with targets out to 800 yds with no issues at all. I also have a SS 3-9 which I managed to score used for a great price. You might see if you can find one...

    Suppressors TBAC 30p-1

    Re: TBAC 30p-1 I mailed off the Form 4 for my 30BA on Friday. With the current wait I don't expect to have it in hand until June 1, 2012. Luckily... I can go shoot with my dealer at least a few times between now and then.
