More like what I wish I could do today.

Reading through the most recent Firearms News last night, there's a great article on the annual Pin Shoot in Michigan. You really don't need a specialized gun or guns to compete. A good .45 1911 firing +P, a doublestack 9mm, and a pump or semi 12g and you're good for most individual events. I REALLY want to go! But a week off, travel, hotel, a metric assload of ammo...just can't swing it.

I marveled at the selection of good brass on the ground at SVRC. Never seen that before. Did an old collector KTB?

7mm Rem Mag., 10mm, 45ACP, tons of .223, .308, .30-06, tons of 9mm, 38 special, 357Mag, .44Mag, 6.5 sumpinnother, etc.

I picked some up, added a bunch of 9mm and 5.45. Worth noting.

Went to the surplus stores down by JBLM looking for a Wilcox Aimpoint mount

Found an Aimpoint for only $100! Clearly fake, didn't buy

Nice!

What scope did you get?

Maybe someday I'll be cool enough for you to invite me out shooting...

Maybe...maybe... :wink05:

Just a little Primary Arms 2.5X fixed. It`s got the ACSS reticle calibrated for bullet drop on 5.56, .308 and 5.45. This one lives on an American Defense mount, which puts it pretty high but I don`t mind.

And if you want to go shooting, send me a text or PM. I`m not that hard to get ahold of and I like shooting with people I know.¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Oh yeah, and I came close to shooting my CV shaft when it was refusing to cooperate when performing some repairs at a friend`s shop this morning. :ROFLMAO:

EDIT:

And I have now busted the tip off a T10 torx bit trying to take the ADM mount off. Guess it`s on there for good now. :ROFLMAO:

That does look really high

Not sure what other options are out there though. You do have a quick release mount on top of another quick release mount so there might be some redundancy that could be eliminated

Are you saying that I need to call you instead of you calling me?

Monday: Hey, you going shooting?
Tuesday: Hey, you going shooting?
Wednesday: Hey, you going shooting?
Thursday: Hey, you going shooting?
Friday: Hey, you going shooting?
Saturday: Hey, you going shooting?
Sunday: Hey, you going shooting?

AK Side mounts are Quick-Release by design, the optic came to me in a QD/QR/Q-whatever mount so whatever. And consider a torx bit is busted off inside it, it`s likely to stay that way lol

What I`m saying is send me a message however you like and we can work a day and place out. :wink05:

Right on

Maybe a different stock or riser would work?

I`m thinking a cheek riser would be a good call, but honestly at this point I`m not too bothered by how high it sits. The factory mount is much lower but again, the ADM isn`t coming off anytime soon so meh. Plus I get to be mister coolguy and say I have an ADM mount on it. :thumbsup2:

Bought a 10/22 Charger and a Copper Custom adapter. Now I just need to figure out which red dot I want. Leaning towards the Bushnell TRS-25.

taught 10 young men of the BSA firearm safety and .22lr single-shot ironsight rifle operation/sight-in using 25 rounds total. 5 ancient rifles with unknown zeros. 1 DOA of those 4. Only 1 scout had touched a firearm before. 40% qualifed with 5 of 5 in a two-inch circle at 50 feet from bench rest. Another hundred rounds, i think we can more than double that.
