Re: 20 ga slugs

Anyone shoot 20 ga slugs with a smooth bore? Is there a difference between a smooth and rifled bore for 50 yard shooting? I don't own either one yet. It sometimes pays to reread the OP! Narcissist referred briefly to this, but the difference in recoil between 12 and 20 gauge is negligible. I’ve bee...

Re: 20 ga slugs

Never tried from a smooth bore. I bought a Savage 220 (bolt action, rifled, detachable mag, slug gun) last year I need to get sighted in. Supposedly with the 3” sabots it will group well out to 200 yards.

Pie-in-the-sky proposal One of the problems with ending private transfers is that FFL's charge for transfers.

Re: Lessons from observing 5000 gunfights

I used to watch him when he first got started but for some reason he annoys me. I like to follow people who have some real world fighting experience too (like Pat McNamara), there’s a world of difference in just knowing theory and actually using it in real life. Anyone can view videos and make up co...

Re: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick attacks NRA and Supports expanded background checks

For me, personally, I would appreciate the opportunity to go to the local cop-shop, together with the other party in a gun transaction, and have the buyer and the weapon checked for eligibility and stolen, respectively. Print a receipt for each party, no other record kept. No registration required,...

Re: Would you support this gun private purchase restriction

When the constitution is changed then we can go with your suggestions, until then it violates our rights (and common sense). Your suggestions seem to show that you don’t fully understand the underlying issue and I don’t think it will make a dent in lowering gun crime. More laws will not stop the pr...
