Mounted the SA 4x14-56 glass today with Warne low mounts. Which are on top of a Basset Machine single bolt M1a high mount. This combination obscures the front post. Because of the he 56 mm objective. However, the scope is as low as can be mounted. With 3/8” clearance below the bell.
That is a 50 rd drum full of Lake City ball.
Where I want to dial this in is closed at this time... SHIT!
Guess the backyard range will have to do until then. Don’t know how well I can correct without zero. On a running hog at moderate range. Just have settle on a 100 yd zero. Then see if this scope can confirm on the fly. After ranging the target.

Sig P220 Carry in .45acp with the visible additions. Internally, SRT kit, action is tuned. DA pull is 7.5 lbs, SA pull is 4 lbs.
This has become a natural extension of my body. It is about the smoothest, fastest, most accurate handgun. That I have ever used.
Can’t for the life of me. Understand why several agencies gave these up.

Let's not use social distancing and firearms on this board as synonyms. It's inflammatory and irresponsible..
That was in no way intended to have anything. To do with any of the current crisis our world faces.
I know that you are a moderator @Kaldak. I have the greatest respect for you.
However Sir, I would venture to say. That you are not familiar. With the writings of Colonel Jeff Cooper. That is where the phrase that lends your admonishment of me originated.
My apologies to any and all offended.

I ordered this Daniel Defense DDM4 complete upper a few years back with the notion that I would submit the NFA forms and the $200 necessary for the ATF to issue a tax stamp for a SBR (Short Barrel Rifle).This was to be for the Colt 6920 lower that was the only thing salvageable after that AR15 blew up in my face at a training course a decade ago.

However, I always seemed to have better things to do with $200. Recently, I discovered a very good deal on a PSA complete AR15 Pistol lower so I ordered it and I even found a new FFL (Federal Firearm Licence) holder who is literally around the corner to do the transfer.

So, the FFL calls me and leaves a message that the lower is in and to contact him to do the appropriate paperwork so I can pick it up. However, when I returned his call, he had just received news that his son may have COVID-19 and was being tested. Out of an abundance of caution we decided to wait until the test came back before doing the transaction. Well... his son was finally cleared, so I went and picked it up this evening (following the 6 foot rule and all of course).

So, now I have a new tool in the home defense plan. Next... I need a 1 to 1 red dot... 😎

My boy thinks he is taking this over...

Edited to add: I also need some BUIS (already ordered a set of Magpul MBUS PRO Steel Sights) and a light... I'll probably end up putting the same light setup as I have on my M400 (INFORCE WML with a THORNTAIL mount).

Have you had any issues with the WML? I know Inforce had some material QC issues. With their 1st generation WML.

Just picked this up today super cheap. It’s a Spanish copy of a S&W hand ejector in.38 special. The bluing is perfect and, it functions flawlessly if not smoothly. I can smooth that up though. The barrel has chatter marks where the grooves are cut in the rifling.
But, like I said, it goes pew every time.
Now I’m trying to find a leather holster for a 5” S&W .BED25C21-3FB2-45D6-A845-314B82A255C9.jpeg38791027-04DB-4EF1-85DE-BD5496295716.jpegDBEE1E1F-54C7-4DE6-8BA7-8B5B39E6D482.jpegB3A49194-DB9F-46D1-988A-CB4ADBE0648C.jpeg

How do you like that chassis system on the M1a?
Haven't shot it yet (gun ranges just reopened here) but it feels nice and tight. I paid only about $100 more for the Troy Industries furniture and 3 mags vs a regular SOCOM.


ETA: This reminded me when I opened up the safe that my last AR I bought I havent shot it either.

If it makes you feel better, I bought a new shotgun a couple months ago (posted earlier) in anticipation of getting back into 3-gun a bit. Was supposed to be a skills clinic today, but it was cancelled. I still haven't fired mine yet either.☹
