TRG-22 in .308 will do great for hunting and long range shooting (800yrds).
If you want to show people how big your balls are you can get the TRG-42 in .338 Lapua Magnum. Or you can buy my AR-10 so I can get a TRG-42.

The AR15 is a norinco, the optic is a 4x acog copy (I know shame shame, but I couldn't justify the cost of a real one since it would cost more then the rifle) I can manage 3-5" groups with it at 100 yards and I find that plenty accurate for my investment,
I have nothing against hunting, I just don't have my buntlines license (yet) I love game meat.

I'm at about a nickle-dime size groups with the AR-10 at 100yds -- but I also have a Leupold LR/T on it.

I use my target rifle for shooting groups, my AR15 is just "for fun" I love shooting both of them
That's some very impressive shooting from your AR10, perhaps you could share some groups, I've never had the chance to try an AR10.

Here's a 200 yard 5 shot group shot from my savage rifle.

I don't shoot it much. This is my group from sighting it in at 100yds. Haven't done much shooting with it since where I felt the need to take pics (mostly shoot steel). See if you can find the group where I got it dialed in . I got it on paper at 25 yards then went out to 100. Took 5 shots to get it where I wanted it then put 7 in the same hole.

Remember, your life is only worth 7 bullets -- and that's only if you're a celebrity so you can actually get a CCW permit.

First find a good basic firearms instructor, NRA certification is a major plus. Then look into finding instruction for each aspect of the firearms lifestyle you are interested in. When you hire an instructor explain that you want them to bring several of their firearms for you to try and listen to what they recommend. Once you have that knowledge then look to buy. You don't just buy a Jeep and jump on the trail by yourself, you find someone to learn from and firearms are the exact same way.

I have lots of guns... since I bought my Wrangler in March I've been neglecting them. Bought a Desert Eagle 44mag and haven't shot it yet. My Wrangler's been on my mind, thinking about what mods I'm going to do.

Need to make some fireballs!

Competitive shooter here and full time LEO. Shot some IDPA in junior college but now I'm on the USPSA wagon. Mostly cause I am trying to make department shooting team.

Purchased a S&W M&P 40, been out shooting with a LEO friend of mine and as soon as life settles down we'll both be going through a 3 course shooting course.

How does it shoot? My dad has been looking at one of those. Want a Sig, but when we went to Gander Mountain and held one we knew we wanted one.

I prefer sigs...all metal frame. The SRT is nice, too. Trigger safeties scare me if not using a structured holster.

If you are doing a lot of handgun shooting you may want to start handloading for that .357... Something most people don't realize is shooting a steady diet of .38spl in a .357 isn't healthy for the cylinder. Eventually you will start eroding a ring in each chamber at the mouth of the case (the end of the brass) that the full power .357 magnum brass will expand into when fired, making extraction difficult. Back "in the day" when I was doing custom pistolsmithing in my unmarried days and life was fun and free, I had to send more than a few high end revolvers to S&W and Colt to have the cylinders replaced for many competition target shooters due to this issue, since the leagues required use of .38spl ammo.

It will also save you a fair amount of cash, especially if you learn to cast your own bullets from wheel weights, which you can pick up free or super cheap from most tire shops

The so called safe trigger such as used on the Glock is not and should not be used by everyone. People hear the name Glock and drool yet it is one of the worst guns for someone new to handguns. While NO safety should ever be depended upon, since mechanical devices can fail, no shooter should use a firearm with one of these automatic safeties until they have become so well trained that they NEVER put their finger in the trigger guard until ready to pull the trigger, manual safeties put an additional conscious step in place, that makes them think about the order of pulling the trigger, "one, two, two, three... One Safety, Two finger in guard, Three pull trigger," the 1,2,3s of trigger control training...

I love the jericho, I'm glad I didn't pass on it. The steel frame is heavy, I don't know if your thinking ccw but if you were I think I'd get something else, were not allowed so that's a non-issue for me...
Very manageable recoil due to the weight and I find it fits the hand well, my hands are on the smaller side too, would work better for guys with larger hands aswell.
I think that is why my girlfriend likes it so much.

Built Bushmaster .300 Blackout. Always under construction. Just waiting for someone to make a fixed power optic for the .300 in the 4-6x range. Trijicon has a 3x but I can't afford it.


Marlin 783 .22 Magnum. It was in bad shape when I got it so I refinished the stock and refinisged the steel in a dark grey DuraCoat. I love this rifle.


Taurus MILLENNIUM PRO 111 9MM. Love this one too, great carry gun.


Hoping to pick up a Ruger LCR in .38 or .357 soon as well, great little roll gun.
