Want John Moses Browning’s Home?

Now you can and for the low low price of $374,900…


I’m surprised this building hasn’t been declared historical and run by a museum. Needless to say I’d love to have this house but of course I can’t afford it and I don’t really want to move to Utah.

Getting Rusty

I went shooting this weekend and must say I’m getting rusty with the shotgun. A friend and I did some rifle, pistol, and shotgun work. For shotgun work we shot clays, or more specifically he shot them while I failed at it. I haven’t shot clays since probably high school and it really showed. I can’t even blame the gun since my friend was using it to.

For pistol I was doing good until he introduced me to my new nemesis the shot timer. This was a huge eye opener for me though. I always knew adding stress to a situation would make me a much worse shot but I didn’t realize how much worse. Either way I’m ordering a shot timer now so I can practice with some added stress.

For rifle shooting I was testing loads in the M14 SOCOM 16. I’m trying to find a load that I can use as a defensive round. Needless to say I loaded up 50 rounds of various powder loads with 155 grain bullets. They were nicer to shoot than my 168 grain bullets and they looked good on the chronograph to boot. Not to mention most of the shooting was done from a standing position and I was hitting the paper well (it was at 100 yards with iron sights).

So yeah I’m rather disappointed in myself but hey it’s a good reason to practice more.

To Wyoming and Back

As I said last week I’d be gone for roughly a week. Anyways I was in Wyoming meeting my girlfriend’s family and getting a good feel for the area. I have to say it’s a nice place with some great scenery. I know I have to head out there prairie dog shooting someday.

To the point I came across some good gun related fortune. I found small pistol primers. So now I’m 4,000 primers richer. They have a Sportsman’s Warehouse there and since I was on vacation I was able to beat all the people who were working their jobs to the store and grab my limit of primers (2,000 per day so I had to go there two days). I also found a butt load of primers at Rocky Mountain Discount Outfitters but they were gouging on them pretty severely.

Anyways it was good to see primers in stock for a change. It’s been far too long.

I Think the AR-15 Bubble has Burst

At least here in Wyoming where I’m vacationing. I decided to look around at a few gun stores to see what I could find. I found a couple boxes of small pistol primers and some bulk Remington .22LR boxes. But I noticed something odd at least one store is having a 5% off sale on all AR-15 style rifles. And every store I’ve visited so far has a ton of AR-15s in stock. It appears as though the bubble is bursting.
