New Guy here...

GunNutGunNut Posts: 7,642 Senior Member
Been lurking for a bit, getting the lay of the land.  Lifelong love of guns and all stuff guns related so I would love to participate to the best of my abilities.  Now I'll go back to my corner and stay out of the way, and I'll make sure I stay away from that black trap door marked "Politics Forum".

Thanks, GunNut

    270 owner?
    Penetration or expansion?
    Glock or 1911?
    Winchester or Marlin?

    What is it about guns that makes us go nuts?

    270 owner?
    NOPE, but I hear it's a damn fine chambering for women and children who like hunting small game.

    Penetration or expansion?
    BOTH, why compromise.

    Glock or 1911?
    1911 but I know some folks can't handle real handguns.  I won't look down on them for their infirmities  B)

    Winchester or Marlin?
    Both!

    What is it about guns that makes us go nuts?
    Not having enough money to own them all.

    Do you like gladiator movies?

    Welcome, Mr. Nut.  I think you'll fit in just fine.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    I didn't see any mention of hunting...do you like to kill critters? 
    When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    No, there are a few gun guys here who do not play blood sports.

    And it's okay if you love the .270. Just do like me and pretend you don't.

    Zorba,

    Knock it off.

    Well, no real reason comes to mind.

    But knock it off anyway, whatever you were doing.

    Especially if you were dancing.

    We kid around a lot. Don't take anything too personal. Stay out of the basement it's haunted.

    It’s all good.  I enjoy hunting a lot but find myself with a lot less time to do it than I used to.  Maybe too many hobbies.  Still does not stop me from buying more hunting rifles.
  • GunNutGunNut Posts: 7,642 Senior Member
    What is your favorite barrel break-in procedure?  😁

    You shoot it until the groups tighten up.  Then you alternate shooting and cleaning as necessary until the groups consistently open up.  Then you buy a new barrel and start the cycle again.

    Glock or Hi-Point?  They are both crack whore ugly guns but hey, they go bang no?  They both have their place in the world.  That place is just not in my hands.  

    I’ve owned quite a few Glocks but have never managed to retain them.  I have a 43 and it’s an ok gun but not my favorite.  The new 48 might change all this but the jury is still out on that one.  

    Personally I believe that God himself and JMB sat together to design the 1911 and who am I to screw around with Divine Design.

    Not yet but my lawyer is getting a little nervous.  Will not ask about the dancing, I kind’a want to stick to gun talk and I’m pretty sure the topic will present itself without me having to ask anyway.
