once my mossberg 500 project is done i am going to work on a .308 scout rifle... short barrel, magazine fed, mauser claw ectractor action... 3-9x optic... something light and tight for 0-500m shots and brush shooting
You, my friend, sound like the perfect owner for a Ruger M77 Gunsite-Scout rifle. 16" with a muzzle-brake, mag fed 3/5/10, mauser action, iron sights. Long-relief scope or red-dot on the pic rail, or install rings for a std. rifle scope.
Edit: hopped on Ruger's website, and much to my surprise two new handguns caught my attention.
#1 SR45. Now, I have a love the SR9 9mm. So much that I e-mailed Ruger asking if they had any plans to make the handgun in a .45acp because I loved the handgun so much and loved the .45 so much. I was basically told that no, they aren't working to develop a .45, and if I wanted a .45 auto from then I should look at the P90. I e-mailed the CEO suggesting an SR45.
I still wanted a polymer .45, and was leaning heavily towards an M&P. So OMG an SR45! I'm so buying one. At the same time, where's my check? Surely I planted a seed...
#2 SR1911 Commander length!
I was planning on carrying my full-size SR1911 once Illinois goes CCW this summer, but I may need to opt into this one now.
Speaking of Mossberg, I just got a Tac-Star side-saddle for my 590A1.
I like the fact that chamber+magazine+saddle I can hold 15 shells, but it seems like it really holds the shells tight.
It's good and bad. Good because they won't get rattled out from recoil/operation/man-handling, but I can't seem to get them off the saddle and into the shotgun quickly. I kind of have to push them down from the top to get more purchase on the brass, then really yank 'em.
I have some high-brass buck sitting in it right now in an effort to break it in. I hope it helps.

Then this thread is going to be a ghost town until after the 22nd. Also, I have to say that I'm very disappointed with the both of you. This thread is the only reason I visit this forum anymore, so I guess I won't be here for a while.
Probably for a while afterward as well, until the fallout clears up.
I am a bit disappointed as well. Although an assault-weapons-ban is technically a political topic, I feel much like OEF in that we are talking the effects and details of the proposed law rather than focusing on the politicians and pro/anti-gun lobbyists.
It's like, say paintball markers were accepted legally as being firearms and now required licensed purchase or say the terms of the AWB stretched into "mimics" and affected Tippmanns/BTs/etc.
Would this forum not be allowed to talk about said instance because it narrowly falls into the realm of "politics"?
I'd think people would be all over that...
But again, I says rules are rules. If they wish it be kept under our hats then capped I shall remain.
