This is what i carry everyday HK .40 cal, i also cary a Kimber Pro Carry II .40 cal. I just like carring the Hk better. My dad is a gun freak, his big thing is benchrest shooting or shilouette shooting. I prefer shilouette over benchrest, rather see the pigs, the rams and the chickens over trying to put the next round in the same hole. The guy does everything from his own mill and lathe work to you name it. Only thing he dosen't do are the barrelsATTACH]2817.[[/ATTACH]

Thanks for all the info and taking your time to answer my questions really appreciate it.
I also wanted to know how much can you shoot out of these type of rifles before you have to change the barrel? I assume it depends on the quality, but when do you know its time for a new barrel?


So, the Noveske is not a piston firing system, it's just a regular high end ar. They are pretty pricey but i'm sure a good quality rifle.

I do want your opionion if you had to choose which upper rec to get for the noveske Noveske upper rec

And a pof upper rec POF upper rec

Oh hell, thousands and thousands of rounds. If you clean and maintain it properly, it'll last a LONG time.

Shouldn't be no problem after a 8hr class and range time, you must know how to handle and safely shoot a revolver and a semi-auto pistol. And it depends on the state where you live. One other thing, your age.

Every state is different. Usually it depends not only the state, but your county too. This is a great site if you haven't seen it.

Your girl is a beut!
This may sound dumb, but since I never shot a ar well about 10 years ago or so, can you shoot where the the shells come out of? Or do you have to shot it from your right shoulder so that the shells won't hit you? I was on a website that sold left and right side upper rec???[QUOTE=semtex;100112]I have a "number" of guns, including pistols, an AR, sniper rifle, and shotgun. Here are a couple of my favorites.

My AR (Wilson Combat M4-T):

I think my grouping looked like that when I was shooting 100+ yards, and I dont really have much depth perception since I'm left-eye dominant and I shoot righty. Gotta close that damn eye /sigh.
I was holding my breath. I have VERY poor eye sight though. I don't wear glasses or anything, so seeing the target at 50yrds was a slight issue. But I don't shoot all that often. Again, I don't own a gun. But considering this was my first time shooting this gun and I was using that stupid "W" style iron sight, I think I did rather well.

At least you were hitting the target. But as was previously said you may be having one or more problems such as breathing, inconsistent trigger pull, bad stance, recoil reaction or anticipation.

You really do however want to work on at first at least grouping the shots somewhere on the target and then you want to to eventually move that group to either the center of the target OR placing the group at will to one area on the target...it doesn't necessarily have to be the center as long as you are choosing the single area to place the group at.

One thing I would do to get yourself grouping is to begin by sighting the rifle with the target placed at 25 feet. Work on a proper and consistent stance, trigger pull and breathing. As you start to develop target groupings then begin moving the target out from you using 25 foot incremenets and adjust the rifle sights to compensate accordingly. Keep developing the groups. If you start to scatter then stay at that target distance until you figure out what it is you are doing wrong. As you progress just keep moving the target out at 25 foot increments until you reach the final desired distince you wish to have the rifle sighted for.

Another thing you can do to improve the grouping is to progressively reduce the size of your grouping POINT down until you are just shooting a at a single 1/2" size diameter DOT you place or mark somewhere onto a target. However, I would not do this particular exercise until you are making at least a 2" to 2.5" grouping going somewhere on the entire target while doing the 25 foot progressive incemented thing I previously described above.

These are exercises I use to improve both my rifle and handgun accurancy that I learned when I was shooting nationals in bow & arrow.
