    Bought a new to me rifle

    Sounds like you got a good deal to me. Congrats on the new rifle!

    How important is this to do?

    My neighbor and I bought the same gun at the same time (really good deal) and we broke one in the way you describe and the other one we just cleaned real well and started shooting. No difference in the accuracy at all.

    Have you tried the Hornady 15.5 ntx? Was there any wind or even a breeze when you were trying 75 yards? It doesn't take very much to push those little pills a few inches. This ^^^ They can be very picky about the ammo. Mine really likes the fmj and gamepoint in 20 grain and the 15.5 ntx, everything else is hit or mostly miss. Flyers are common and to be expected as it is a rimfire and match grade ammo is not available. Some of them also like to be shot dirty. After a thorough cleaning they can take some shooting before they shoot well again. 20-30 rounds is common for mine then I just use a bore snake.

    Shoot-it, Do you get many pics of snakes? Does anybody else get snake pics? I have never gotten one and I have some big snakes here.

    Timber Rattlers

    This summer I have killed two large rattlers on the property with the G19. This 50" one showed up when a lady moved in next door at an abandoned house and was cleaning up the property. Shot it up pretty bad and it bit itself trying to get at the rake handle I used to pull it out of the brush. I was walking a dog that has to be on leash yesterday and shot this one after the dog sniffed it's tail and made an odd snort. I took a second look and saw it's tail that he was sniffing. Followed it around to a ready to strike rattler, one and done. 54" stub to tail.

    Like SJ said here in Alabama most weapons and accessories are legal. The g19 is my carry gun when at home. It seems to work well on snakes.

    John, I had my Vet order the vaccine. I have to get three dogs done. Lucky for me I get the employee discount so it isn't too bad. They say it really helps the recovery process. Bisley, Good eye. It only had a few buttons and never did rattle. The top one had 8 buttons but I shot it up pretty bad because I could only see part of it in the thick brush and wasn't taking any chances at a couple feet away. Tom, It's your standard yellow axe caliber 220-221 Microtus, I have been looking at snake boots but haven't got anything yet. Going to Cabelas tomorrow to look some more. Shoot-it, Yep they are protected in Tenn. You can't even pick up a dead one from the road. I would rather I didn't have to remove them but I can't have my wife or dogs bit while on the trails. If I do see them below the ridge I let them be.

    It is my understading that in order to sell a pistol in CA the manufacturer has to send ten guns of each model for "testing" (rumor has it most of those cannot be accounted for). For Glock that would be over 400 guns to just give away for the right to sell in CA. Now manufacturers are only sending in a few models for the "drop Test". With the toxic gun culture in CA politics and the endless law suits coming out of CA a lot of manufacturers are thinking about giving up on you guys.
  17. You should put some catnip out for them.

    new coyote hunting rig perhaps?

    Needs a flash hider and a rail for optics and a flashlight. Where do you put the grenade launcher mount? If you don't use one it's not tactical.
