I would say just the tip, but everyone who knows me knows that I go to the hilt...
It looks like it has been damned near 5 months since I have published anything on here. It has been nagging at me, but to be honest, I have found my inspiration a bit lacking.
For those who do not know, for the past year I have been working in the firearms industry, so I think the constant daily exposure has made it a bit mundane for me, and has caused me to have a little bit of a drop in my creative writing skills.
That being said, I should (in theory) have some new content coming soon. One of these is an unedited, damned near half hour long video on how to clean the Steyr AUG A3.
A new thing you may notice, is the new page called Fitness. As of the last few months I have been getting pretty into lifting heavy objects, grunting, cussing, and putting them back down. I have felt more inclined to write about that stuff so......what the hell, might as well write about it on here. Not only that, all this shit ties together in the end.
Funny thing however, my page views have been going up even with a lack of content. That is what I get for
So I got a chance to look over a Remington R51, and I am not impressed. On the one I played with, the slide is extremely hard to rack. As in it takes considerable effort and seems like it is locked in place until you pull it with great effort. I find this pretty amusing, as they advertise this pistol as having "The lightest slide racking force of any pistol in its class". Three of us handled the pistol, and we all had a problem racking the slide. I would more than likely bet it has to do with something that is not fit well from the factory, which is not a surprise from Remington nowadays.
Gearing up for Ground Squirrel Season, Tom, The Giant Ginger, and I have been doing load development, and searching for the perfect load that yields the absolutely smallest group possible. But, at what point does the law of diminishing return kick in? When is it adequate?
After shooting my deer with my Sako TRG 42 in .338 Lapua last year, I came to the conclusion that I needed a dedicated hunting rifle. Over the years, my thoughts have varied quite a bit as to what my ideal hunting rifle is, but now, I feel that I have come to a consensus, and this year I will purchase it. So, here is my criteria for my ideal hunting rifle, and my reasons for doing so.
As of lately, I have been doing a bit of soul searching, handgun-wise. I've been wanting to basically go to one family of pistols, with common parts, common magazines, and the same controls. This has lead me damned near all over the place, and the last three pistols I have purchased have had some form of issue out of the box. The other day I had an epiphany, from the back of my safe.
So, after getting repeatedly smacked in the face by brass after my outing with the G19, I did me a little bit of Googling to see what the cause of the problem was. After reading the same thing repeatedly, I ordered a whopping $7 in parts, broke out my Glock tool kit, and got busy.
Everyone should have a well balanced breakfast, that is why I like omelets.
That being said, I was finally able to get to the range to shoot the Glock. How did it go? Well, you will have to click the little "Read More" icon to find out!
Merry Christmas to all! Christmas also marks one year of www.randomgunstuff.com being live.
This year has been pretty hard for me, but things are looking up. And with that, hopefully I will be putting out more quality articles, on a more consistent basis.
