...sorry, was working on the pod today and working on legal issues related to Colorado falling into Darkness. Back to normal blogging tomorrow.
Meanwhile, check out my friend Ron's When the Balloon Goes Up blog...he's covering some really interesting topics...stuff that I used to write and podcast about before politics consumed my life.
Still, I am really excited about my new FNH TSR .308/7.62 bolt gun. I do have a few changes I want to make...I'd like to change out to a CDI Precision bottom metal, which will allow me to use Accuracy International magazines. Yes, the AI mags are expensive, but they are the best in the world...as I've learned in working with the Ruger Scout, which uses the AIs (in addition to the Ruger polymer mags). I'm still pondering scopes...it's a toss-up between the Nightforce ATACR or a Leupold Mk 4 LR/T. I want this to be sort of my ultimate .308 long-distance rifle, so I'm not going to skimp on the glass. I'm hoping I like the Hogue overmolded stock...we'll see after I put some rounds through it. I have shot the McMillan A-3 and liked it a lot...so that'l be my default. Brother Iain has a "real" AI rifle...aside from the fact that Iain can outshoot me on any day, I'm interested in seeing how the FNH shoots alongside it.
This summer I'll be doing a long-distance class with the FNH, and yeah, we'll film it for SHOOTING GALLERY. Also, I made a decision earlier tonight that SG 2014 will do a show on 3-D printers for building guns and accessories, specifically magazines. I still remember back in the days of the Clinton AWB when SG did a show on how to build your own AR...and the amount of heat we took. Ah crap what can I say?
BTW, here's an article worth reading from the Alt-Market blog, titled "Gun Rights: Are There Any Peaceful Solutions Left?" I sincerely hope so...
