I've lost a lot of respect for Walthers over the years. Back when I bought my first one (77) they were 100% out of the box. As technology has advanced there just is no reason for the reliability to have dropped like it has. Machining has become more precise than it has ever been. Yet the prices haven't come down and quality has dropped since then, Sadly the same goes for all the major long time players in the hand gun arena. Even Glock has made changes that have caused them issues. Yet when we look at brands like Taurus, there is major irony taking place. They used to make cheap knock offs of S&W revolvers, using cheap steel and as long as you didn't use them regularly they worked use them too much and they burred up and went out of time or wouldn't lock up at all. Now today, they are one of the TOP firearms manufacturers, because they use all state of the art technology manufacturing. I would love to see them venture into Long guns.
Like you my Wife and daughters also shoot, although my personal armory is rather extensive and there are quite a few they cant handle, and some of those I personally don't care to shoot more than 5 rounds at a sitting, I'm just not that masochistic.

Just picked up an Aussie L1A1 FAL. The parts are from a 1971 Lithgow rifle contracted to West Malaysia, and built with a Century R1A1 inch receiver. Got a good deal, otherwise I probably wouldn't have gotten a Century. It is in good shape however.

I think I may ditch the bipod and metal hand guard for Aussie wood furniture.

Oooh, nice! I've been looking into a FAL/CETME to go with my M1a (probably cheaper than a Sage stock!). I don't know enough about the good/bad brands to decide, and don't want to spend the $$$ on a PTR. How are the Century receivers?

They're 50/50. I had a CETME previously and it cycled nicely and I never had any issues, overall I prefer the design of the FAL over the G3/PTR variants.

With FALs, you have either metric or inch pattern, most of your L1A1s are inch pattern rifles and originate from Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, etc. the metric patterns are mostly European, Belgian, Israeli, etc.

Most people build them from parts kits and get receivers from DSArms, or Imbel. The metric FALs are typically more expensive and most L1A1s in the US are built with Century receivers so they're less expensive. The main issue with older Century receivers are the feed ramps, the unibrow (which is what mine has) tend to have more feeding problems while the widows peak (two dimples) are more ideal.

Closed minds make lousy shooters. I agree with you on the 1911.

Agreed on the 1911 as well. While Colt, Springfield, and Kimber are OK, consider a Wilson Combat full sized CQB. It is really, really nice. Very well made, very accurate, reliable, and a great carry weapon. Just a little bit on the pricey side, but you will never regret buying it.

Picked this one up this evening. Best part, my favorite Fun Shop was offering 12 months interest free financing. So I have a year to pay it off with no interest. Louisiana is great.

Just picked up small handgun yesterday and will say I am pretty impressed. Initially I was going to purchase the Beretta M9A1 military spec or 92A1 civilian spec, but I plan on carrying this handgun concealed so the smaller the better. I had shot the Ruger LC380 before and decided on this LC9 with the laser attachment. Hitting the range this weekend!!!

^^^Nice TAvor man! I never got a chance to get one here in CT....I dont think anyone in CT imported one, and now because of the ban we cant

^If you havent shot the LC9 yet....get ready
Its definitely a fun little pistol, pretty damn accurate, and a very nice CCW, but it is SNAPPY.
I bought it for my fiance and lets just say I dont mind not shooting it very much lol.

I just took apart one of my AR uppers last night and I'll be changing it up quite a bit. Here is a before picture and when I get the rest of the parts I'll have an after pic

Also, my nightstand and carry pistols.

Bought a 1915 Spanish Ruby in .32 ACP (stamped 7.65MM). I've been all over trying to find a magazine, anyone have any ideas?!

Funny story, the loops for the back window on my soft top are perfect for hanging my Mosin-Nagant 91-30. It barely ever moves and I don't have to buy a gun rack.

Been putting this M&P45c through hell with training and what not. 2000 rounds through and not one single jam. Great gun for the money.

I think I qualify as a "gun nut" but I don't hunt. I was hoping someone else a little more knowledgable in this area would reply. The ruger mk77 is a great gun, your best bet is to check with your local gun dealer or Bass Pro Shop and see what they are going for brand new, then decide if the difference is worth it for a new one or if the price of the used one seems fair. In my area a new MK77 is around $850. Its basically a modernized version of the Mauser K98 and uses the mauser type extractor, which is very reliable.

The most popular calibers for deer hunting are .308 .270 (which is basically a necked down 30-06) and 30-06. The .260 rem is used a lot for smaller deer like white tail and mule deer, some consider it a little under powered for larger species like elk.

Selecting a caliber for deer really depends on where you will be hunting. The smaller Axis deer in the Texas Hill Country can be taken with a .223 Rem. Use as small as a .243 on the slightly larger deer in North Texas. I bought my first deer rifle in .270 Win thinking it would be a good "in-between" round, but quickly realized I didn't like shooting it in such a light rifle. My current rifle is a heavy barrel Savage in .308.

Your best bet for selecting the right rifle would be to go to a real sporting goods store (not Dick's, Sports Authority, Academy), get a feel for who in the firearm section is a hunter, and pick their brain about what works in your area. Just remember that some gun counter guys tell questionable stories, like how they took an Moose with a .22 LR.

I dont care for compact rifles. Especially ones chambered for fairly fast rounds such as the 260, you never really realize the cartridges full potential in my opinion. Less accurate, less velocity, less knock down power. My favorite deer rifle is a .243 if the shots are under 250 yards or so. Anything farther a 30 caliber of some sort is my go to, specifically .300 win mag. Lots of great deer calibers out there. If you want one rifle to do it all choose a 300 win mag. Nothing on the north american continent that cant be brought down with that round.

Actually if its a laminate stock its really very weather resistant. Almost as good as sympathetic stocks. Id look at a weatherby vanguard before i ever bought a savage.
