Sniper 17 hmr .25" groups? You should enter the matches on rfc and show those boys how to do it, they are all from Missouri "The Show Me State" :lol:

Yeah, I just saw that VQ has a semi auto .204 that can use AR mags. If that thing is CA legal, I'm almost considering it, but it's almost $2000. But a semi .204 with a 30 round AR mag would be the best varmint gun on the planet!!!

:( Let's see..................sell my XR-100 AND my nightvision and I can have one of those!......... :lol: (the wife would shoot ME with it!) B)

No B.S. - those VQ barrels are worth thier weight in gold! I'll post some groups after my next range day.Note: If anybody on this forum buys a VQ barrel (rimefiresports had it AT MY DOOR in 2 days!) you'll need a Dremel or a gunsmith. The part of the barrel that seats into the receiver is a perfect fit. BUT - you will need to dremel out the bottom of the recess (where the 2 screws bolt in) about .010". It took me about a minute to do it. I also recommend coating the part of the barrel that fits into the receiver with red loctite - let it sit after installing (DO NOT TIGHTEN SCREWS ALL THE WAY UNTIL THE LOCTITE IS SET!) then torque it down the next morning and enjoy your one holers! :D

My M1A cost me around $1700 and is great, but a 30 round semi-auto .204 would be a LOT more fun! I think I can almost justify the expense. Thank god I don't have one of those wife things, they sound awful for the gun hobbyist! B)

Thank god I don't have one of those wife things, they sound awful for the gun hobbyist! :lol:[/quote] LMFAO! :D :( B) Actually, when we met she HATED guns! She told me there would be NO guns in her house! I replied with, 'The guns stay or I go with them!'Here we are 6 years later and she shoots with me! :D She's been converted - she just chokes on the price of quality sometimes![quote name='Bozsik' post='19008' date='Jul 25 2006, 05:27 PM']But you only have 1/2 a life without one. The other half is your kids! B) db[/quote]And when you watch one of them connect with the X ring or thier first kill - it's even better than the hunt! Just got to get a wife you can convince to shoot WITH you or accept your hobby (ESPECIALLY when your in the garage reloading for 2-3 hours a night!)
