    Kyoto must-see list

    Quick turnaround for any of you Japan travel pros - my girlfriend and I are in Japan (Yokosuka area) until the 4th and decided to do a spur of the moment trip down to Kyoto starting Sunday and coming back on the 1st. Anything we absolutely should not miss while we are down there? So far I...

    Training Courses High School Air Rifle Instruction

    Not a posting for a course, but rather a request for references and info - thought it would best fit in here. I am starting as an assistant coach for my local high school air rifle team. I shot XTC in college, but there are definitely some differences (i.e. kneeling vs sitting, the equipment)...

    Member Link Up Any Quantico shooters run a DTA?

    Opinions on Scope Zero Distance

    50 yd or 100yd? Searched, came up with nothing, would like the counsel of wiser minds than mine and any method behind the madness. My thought is to zero my .22 rifle at 50 yards, so as to be able to shoot it zeroed at a local indoor range when I can't make the longer trip to an outdoor...

    AR trigger problems

    Interesting thing happened to me today that I've never experienced before. I changed out the stock on my AR-15 from an A2 to a Magpul UBR stock, and changed the buffer to a dpms heavy buffer and CS flatwire spring. Until this change I never had any trigger problems. Since the change, I get...
