22 spinner range doesn't really allow for that but there is a shorty rifle range we could use if we want to get fancy. I finished up my 10/22 stock and reassembled everything with proper grease so hopefully it'll be good for 600rds before nuking itself.

I'll be printing out a boatload of targets at work tomorrow.

I've got a big pile of professionally printed targets already that I can bring, so don't feel like you have to print enough for everyone. We'll need some printings of the monthly challenge target though.

For ammo I've currently got packed about ~1,000 22, ~1,000 38spl reloads, 7 loaded magazines of 223 for my HK33K, 12 loaded magazines for my MP5K. I will probably also throw in a box or two of shotgun shells because I'm going to bring my mixmaster 1897 too just in case.

I don't have a shotgun but I have a box of 12ga that needs blasting.

You can probably pack 400 rds of .38 and be fine. 9mm , 223, and 22 is gonna be the big burner I expect. I have 600+ of 22, 500 of 9mm and about 200 in 223 I'm bringing.

That being said, if you're bringing friends make them grab a box or two of ammo to put in the pot. This poo poo ain't free and none of us are exactly made of money. If you're shooting a calibur outside of standard NATO: tell us now or be willing to absorb the extra few boxes cost.

Except I took the 1-4 off and am going back to a red dot because it wasnít worth it for anything I do.

Yes, that is a muzzle brake, yes the concussion is crazy, but the recoil is mild. Also that weighs more than my 3gun AR with all the bells and whistles attached because itís a milled steel receiver.

Yep!

Though I probably want to sell mine and pick up the one they just released that comes from the factory with a pistol grip and AR stock. Itll be way cheaper than buying an aftermarket chassis system.

And that ladies and gentlemen was what I would call a successful Autumn Goonshoot.

Thank you for everyone showing up! Thank you for the stickers whomever that was! I look forward to our inaugural spring shoot, "Hellworld 2020: gotta laugh so you don't cry."

My vote for best rimfire goes to the Ruger MkIV with VQ trigger. That set the bar as the nicest trigger I've ever shot. Scary good. UNF!

My vote for neatest 9mm is as always, the classic, the one and only (may it never grow warm in the Cold War of our hearts) MP5

My vote for weirdest poo poo but coolest red dot is the physical embodiment of BLAM: the Gali.

Yeah I realized on the way back that we didn't take any pictures

I even thought about it like twice while shooting but then I was like "Well I might as well finish off this magazine first" and then I was distracted by something else.

I am sorry Captain Log, I failed you.

HOWEVER. We have now had TWO MP5's at the same shoot and that made my day

I can't argue with the MKIV being amazing to fire, the trigger was absolutely perfect, but I think my top rimfire pick is a tie between the Mossberg 46B and the integrally suppressed Ruger MK II. The bolt gun is just so satisfying and it was laser accurate. The suppressed MK II handled way better than I thought it would and it was soooo quiet. I loved it.

Top centerfire is a hard choice. I obviously love my own guns, and it feels like cheating to say the SP89 since it's pretty darn close to my MP5 Despite the muzzle break issue the Galil Ace was awesome. Very smooth operation and very accurate. That Ruger 9mm carbine was really nice except for the recoil impulse. It was accurate, had a nice trigger, AND it was a takedown model. All great things. But man that recoil sucked.

The AR15's were all very nice but I'm not much of an AR guy and they were all kind of the same to me which I know is probably heresy talk. I did enjoy checking out and using all their gizmos. They were all very light weight and now I understand that I will never be a gun gamer with my super fat HK33K but dang it I love it.

e: For those that were asking: My lever gun is a Rossi M92. The specific description in my order email is "M92 CARBINE 38/357 BLUE 8+1 16 RND". It is the wide loop style. Here's the page for it: https://www.rossiusa.com/product-details.cfm?id=181&category=8&toggle=&breadcrumbseries=


e2: the cali-compliant AR the mag-dumping kid next to us had was of course, a Kel Tec https://www.budsgunshop.com/product_info.php/products_id/16091

People deserve to be warned, and it's a open and shut case. Perma, pass on the info to the parties involved, inform others who could be at risk. The part where the offending party hasn't eaten the permaban before their loving sixer ran out pisses me off. I ain't a fan of the helldump poo poo either, but when there's real potential risk of harm to folks, making sure they know matters


You'll also note I only mentioned the one clear cut example of doxxing from the thread in question because the user was dumb enough to do it openly. If you'd like to ask about the others(this is not the first time someone has been doxxed after posts in the other thread), hit me up with a PM.

Cyrano4747
Sep 25, 2006



Admins arenít on 24/7 and they need to approve permas. It happened in CSPAM and I donít know if their mods are online yet. The person who put through the sixer and edited out the doxxing info isnít even a CSPAM mod, just a D&D mod who has buttons there because itís a sub forum. This was literally some overnight bullshit and itís still morning on the East coast. Plus itís a work day and not everyone is on the forums at their job.

poo poo will get resolved. Iím working as hard as I can to make sure itís sooner rather than later.

Also whether or not this is a clear cut case (I donít want to comment on that for obvious reasons) I canít make forum policy based on the easy ones. I see why youíre pissed about this but from where I sit I need to think about situations where itís tenuous, potentially spurious accusations that people are trying to air all over the forum.

Cyrano4747
Sep 25, 2006



Iíve gotten a few PMs asking what the drama is about and how a TX goon might be implicated, especially as you all organize goon meets here. Iíll update this thread with the info once we have some resolution.

Cyrano4747
Sep 25, 2006



Ok, all the mod poo poo went through so final update on this:

MC Hawking doxxed another TFR goon over in CSPAM, in the leftist gun thread. I'm not going to say who, because that isn't pertinent and I don't know if they want to be further dragged into it, but I will say that it wasn't someone who posts in this thread. The doxxing was over political poo poo, but it featured some very specific personal information to lend credence to the point they were making. All this poo poo happened last night at 2AM over in CSPAM, which is why it took until this morning for it to get resolved.

I want to be emphatic that doxxing is a red line on SA in general, and doubly so in TFR. This involved TFR posters but it happened over in CSPAM, which is why it was CSPAM mods who had to the actual mod activity.

My stance on doxxing is also why I edited Mohawk Satan's post. He was right in that this was pretty open and shut. The major issue wasn't some deep deliberation among the mods and admins, but finding people early in the AM who had the right tools and were available. As it stands it got taken care of pretty quickly. The reason I edited Mohawk Satan's post is because not all cases are 100% clear cut, not all of them require virtually no discussion among the mod team, and there isn't always an easy, clean call. Doubly so for poo poo like this that crosses forums, with people bringing grudges from one place over to somewhere else. We really, really don't want people rushing around the forums to helldump other posters because there's some transgression - real or imagined - that they believe everyone has a right to know about.

Again, let me reiterate that Mohawk Satan was right about this being a clear cut case, but as a mod I have to keep in mind the ones that aren't clear cut. Helldump was gotten rid of for a reason.

Finally, and I know this is kind of a downer because of what kind of thread this is, but be aware of what kind of information you give out online. This is a tight knit community but sometimes people change and sometimes people are just lovely. I'm not saying to go into full lockdown and never send a TFR person an email from an address you can't throw away, but think twice and just be aware of what you are doing.
