  1. OMG What a bunch of junk. I feed all kinds of birds in my back yard, and the only time I feel close to nature is when I'm out in the woods hunting where I am part of the wild world. Longboard
  2. I just got one and wanted to know if any of you have one, and do you find the bolt very stiff when cocking the rifle. I just put a scope on it but have not shot it yet. Thanks for any info. Longboard
  3. Great story, Nine hours is a looooong hunt to be sure, but you did very well. Longboard
  4. Yes 4rhunts you NEED one. Anytime I open the safe my M-1 comes out just so I can feel the history. Darn thing shoots like a dream too. Yes you NEED one! Longboard
  5. Thanks for the replies! The rifle is a Gamo Expo 28 with a Simmons 4x32 scope. The trigger is not target grade at all. YILKES! I have to do the "just right hold" to make the shot, but it is sure is a killer when I do my part. Longboard
  6. Thanks Fjold! Longboard
  7. Howdy all, I have a number 1 in .243 and just bought a number 3 in .223. Do any of you know what rifle was first , or if they came out at the same time? Longboard p.s. My new [used] number three is not as light as the #1
  8. I love mine. Super quality and very very accuate. I had a Stag M-4 that was quite a good shooter, sold it and missed having a AR in the house. Went to a gun show and just had to have the DD, could not be more happy with it. Have a great time with it. Longboard
  9. Last night [early evening] my wife calls to me "the gopher is standing up in his hole". Having missed said gopher last Sunday I was out for blood. Went to the closet loaded my gamo with a .177 hollow point and one cock of the barrel and I was out the glass door. He was still there looking around, lined him up in the cross hairs, safety off, squeze..........SNAP! Where did he go? Shot looked good, Honey bring me the flash light. Head shot, fell right back in his tunnel. The Gamo is virgin no more. Love back yard hunting. Longboard
  10. Howdy, Well I took my CZ out today with some 110gn. hollow points and a load of 2400. It is a light load and shoots like a dream. The really cool part is it [the CZ] shot the crappy wolf hollow points almost as well when the HARD primers would go off. Surf in the morning range time in the afternoon.All in all a great day, can't wait to introduce some song dogs to my rifle. Good Hunting Longboard
  11. Thanks RobT2K,I just bought a Daniel Defense and could not be more happy with the rifle. It is very accurate and a well made AR. Longboard
  12. Good job Tony, I have a 500 that my Father in law gave me and just love it. I also bought a 870 Wingmaster that has a plain barrel and was made in the 50's, it's almost as old as me. You do not need the most expensive, or the hardest kicking killer shotgun made, to hunt with.Shotguns are fun, my Ruger red label is a very good looking gun, and shoots like a dream, but my Mossberg and 870 get the nod in the field most of the time. Good luck on the hunting.Longboard
  13. Thanks to all of you. I bought a M-4 Daniel Defense 5.56 and will pick it up on Saturday the 17th. Ya-hoo. Longboard
  14. I have been looking at uppers for an ar15 and find Daniel Defense to be very expensive. Is this because they are so reliable or accurate? And is a Wilson AR 15 so great for the money since the Ruger is about the same cost? Thanks for any info. Longboardp.s. I would be using this rifle for everything from Rabbits, range time, to Coyote's.
  15. Do any of you have one? They have a heavy barrel for 1449.99 and I am thinking about buying it. Thanks Longboard
  16. I just bought a used 870 in 12 gage with a plain barrel and Mod. choke.Went Dove hunting today, two hours and I had my limit. It must be my age [52] but I just have a real thing for older shotguns without all the cool stuff folks think make them better shots. I love bird hunting, can't wait for Quail to open. Thanks for reading my thoughts. Longboard
  17. Butcher 45, You are now in a very large club. Don't think you are alone. I'm sure you will not have to feel like this again, good hunters like you learn from mistakes. Good Hunting! Longboard
  18. Nice looking AR, Do you take the rifle down to parts then paint, or do you just paint over the safty, mag button, and bolt release? Have you had much of a problem with chipping of the paint or not much? I want to paint my Stag but don't want to screw it up. Thank you for any info.Longboard
  19. Hey Guy's, What does OLL stand for? And what do I use to get an AR [mine is a Stag] ready for paint. Thanks Longboard
  20. I do have the DPMS wrench and had to use it because my stock was a little off, Tilted. Thanks for all the info from all of you. Longboard
  21. Thank you very much Wannakillacoyote, How hard is it to change the stock out? Thanks againLongboard
  22. Do any of you all have this set up and how well does it work?I would like to get a RRA varmint, or a model 1 varmint for my Stag ar 15 but don't know if I will have to change the stock to an A2. I just bought this AR, never wanted one, now that I have had some time to play around with it......... WOW! what a great design, thing comes apart in no time, simple to work on and accurate to boot. Sorry I waited so long. Thanks for any info, Longboard
