Anyone here into firearms?

I have someone who's teaching me to shoot. My stance is OK and like I said, I hold my breath while firing. I do have to work on the firing

I have someone who's teaching me to shoot. My stance is OK and like I said, I hold my breath while firing. I do have to work on the firing finger position. By habit I use the back of the pad on my middle finger and have been trying to correct myself to use the middle of the pad on my index. With the hand gun I did have a problem with recoil anticipation, but I didn't on the AR-15. In fact, it really didn't feel like it had much kick in the first place. But my friend did one of those range-master tricks to see if I was anticipating the recoil on the AR, and I didn't have any issues with that. The recoil on the hand gun was a lot more than I was used to and the pistol grip was too large for my hands, so it wasn't easy to shoot.

I'll work on grouping when I pick up my own guns. I don't want to sit there and practice with my friend's guns. My purpose to go to the range was simply to keep up on knowing how to use a gun. I'm kind of one of those people that like to know a little about everything. LOL

You could call me a gun nut, but it helps that the Navy pays me to do it too. For AR's I have a regular DI AR that I built (CMMG A3 upper/AP lower) and one I built around an LWRC upper. To be quite honest I like the regular AR better. Its lighter, better balanced, cheaper, and has been 100% reliable so far. I drank the piston kool aid and its not that sweet IMO. If you give your gun the slightest modicum of care youll be fine. If youre shooting auto or suppressed then maybe a piston might be worth it. For the price of my LWRC gun I could have built another DI gun, got a case of ammo and taken another class and been way better off.

A lot of truth to this. Practice and classes (and good maintenance practices) are going to buy you a lot more value than the same money dumped into a piston upgrade cost.

LWRC are pretty pricey. But i'm looking into getting a POF, still pricey but not quite as the LWRC. The POF are gas piston. Still deciding and I have to find a dealer to get me one.

I went to the range today with a friend who is a parole officer for the county. They are required to carry and qualify quarterly, so he showed me some of their drills etc. One thing he showed me was holding the slide on a semi-auto with the palm of your hand. It forces all of the gases out of the front of the gun leaving a massive blast wound. This does force you to rack the slide to clear the shell though.

The picture is from his .40, the other is me shooting my two 9mms.

I saw that. Damn she was shooting some heavy artillery. Even though i'm not to serious about guns, but I would like to attend one of those shows so that I can experience shooting different weapons.
I really want to try and shoot the mini gun.
Probably expensive.

I think as long as they are not fully auto it's ok. You can get a special liscense to have fully auto's i believe. If im wrong let me know.

yes they are legal again

full auto ones however you have to have a special permit and on top of that the weapon had to have been originally manufactured as full auto and cannot be a converted full auto (example is an ak47 there are only a handfull of legal registered full auto aks in the hands of citizens the rest belong to military or law enforcement)

for you to buy one of those the price alone is a turn off as you would spen close to 10-15k for a legal ak47

no automatic weapons for personal use were allowed to be manufactured after the firearms safety act of the mid-early 80s (it was earmarked in the bill which primary intent was to allow for mail order ammunition sales)

i have an AK47 semi auto (but bump shooting gives me my fullauto fix)


you can buy the full auto conversion online for the ak (ftf industries i think) but wheras posession is legal including th templat for drilling the extra rivet and all the parts to do so

utilizing them however is a federal offense

the ar is just a sear and a bolt filing and its all drop in and owning the sear alone is against the law from what i have been told

You need to get out of NJ.....the most gun unfriendly state in the nation.
Perfectly legal in many states....move to Atlanta, GA.

Never mind my ridiculous face - my photographer didnt know how to use a camera to save their life, and the sun was right in my eyes . But I got to hold onto this not long ago
