Hey OEF, did the army supply gloves? Were people allowed to provide their own? Look what I just found flipping through photos of a group a girl I know from high school is in.

Would be pretty cool if the government gave out Empire Gloves, but if I had to guess I'd say he was allowed to provide his own, since it was just a training day.

 

Apparently it's the 404th MEB, and the picture is from their 2013 Annual Training pics off Facebook.

they issued us nomex flyers gloves, as they are fire retardant... when at a training range, it depends on the unit... when deployed... you cant wear gloves that will melt and fuse to your skin in the event of a fire

i loved em... get a pair that fit, otherwise they are really awkward... i used them for winter paintball... yard work... as well as wearing them in the field while on deployment... i've also had wiley-x gloves with the hard knuckles... they were ok, but fell apart really fast... not worth the 60 bucks i paid

Hey Corrupted, do you have a .223 bullet handy? Got back from the range today and made sure to save the first round I fired. Would like you to put a bullet in it and put a loop in the primer hole like you did with my .40 S&W casing, if you wouldn't mind?

I've got a few thousand 55 gr FMJBT lying around. They're Hornady's version of the XM193 military bullet. Once seated, all you'll see is the FMJ copper tip seated into a cannlure. I'd just have to go back to my dad's place to go find my soldering equipment.

Toss me your address in a PM and I'll ship the casing out to you, and then you can ship it back whenever you get around to it. Same as before, no big rush or anything, just whenever you have the time and energy.

 

What would you consider a good price for a batch of bullets? I need to start looking at reloading supplies, now that I've started saving some brass.

Anyone know what the plastic harness like thing is called for 3 gun shooting for shotgun shells? Goes on your belt or something holds like 5 shells?

Another idea I've seen before is an arm guard, similar to what bow people use, but with loops for shotgun shells. But basically what it comes down to is using whatever you're comfortable with and good at.

One idea I've been seriously considering is getting the Safariland ELS belt, just because it seems like it will be so much easier to take stuff on and off. It's fairly expensive up front to get everything you need, but it should last a long time and be the only belt you need.

 

Starts at about a minute, but the entire video is worth watching if you're new to 3 gun.

Sure thing. But I have a shortage of most types of primers. And in the current economic climate, primers are annoyingly hard to come across. I'm keeping anything that requires anything but small pistol primers close to the vest.

Headed out to shoot today. :D Hands are sore from splitting wood yesterday but we will see how this goes?

 

First day shooting the H&R. Picked up a few boxes of ammo. Reason for calling it "ammo" is do to I bought multiple different types of calibers for different firearms and I;m not going to list them all.

Ah, lol. I was just inquiring, so I know when I should pass on a deal, since I plan on starting to gather supplies at some point. Probably won't be until I move out, but I still like to spend some time doing some research.

buddy of mine has gotten into hand loading... he got a single stage press, only loads one at a time. he has to put the primer and bullet onto the case then press it... its time consuming, but the same route i woudl take to learn. as for powder, he has a hornady scale and electronic measuring machine.... not sure what he bought as far of the brass tumble cleaner... but he has spent far less then some others i know for a first time set up and he cranks out just as much ammo as they do... 

 

once i can get my funds together for my .308 i am going to look into reloading... will most likely still buy radway green surplus 7.62, but i want to be able to hand load specality rounds for hunting and longer range shooting... cant wait to get back on the range, and back to NH so i can go shooting every weekend...

Nobody is talking about selling each other ammo. I was merely asking about what is a good price to look for for reloading components, and what prices I should avoid.

I wouldn't know. I don't load shotshells, and there is very little specific cross compatibility between shells and metallic cartridges. So I have really no idea what shotshell components cost, and no way of telling you what prices to look for.

As for pistol stuff, I just sold a good friend 200 rounds of 38 Special. I don't remember if my cost was $28 or $31 for the batch. I think I charged him $40.

It takes a lot of money to get everything you need. My press alone was a grand. That's not including $40-120 for each set of dies, various other tools, reloading data literature, a tumbler... etc. And then you have to get the actual components. It's like boating: it's better to have a friend with a boat than to actually have a boat.

Well, I just bought me another gun. (Or rather put it on layaway until this weekend).
It's a Smith & Wesson M&P 9 in the Cabela's exclusive duo-tone kit (which comes with a kydex holster and mag carrier, a Lula mag loader, and an extra magazine for a total of 3). It cost me about $570.

150986_01_md.jpg
I decided to go with the M&P because it was the only high-cap polymer auto that seemed to fit my hand. I'll primarily be using it for home defense since I'm finally moving out of the dorms. I'll be throwing a Streamlight TLR-3 on it as well and possibly replacing the sights with some Meprolights, depending on how well I like the stock sights.

 

Hopefully, I'll be able to try it out this next weekend

Generally, I try to stay away from anything made by Lee, except maybe metallic case dies. Lee makes bottom-of-the-barrel cheap stuff, and it usually shows. For example, I have two powder drops: once by Hornady and one by RCBS. Both of them are total metal construction and have close tolerances and throw powder within 0.1 grains each time. The same style powder drop made by Lee is made largely of plastic, and has horrible consistency. You see this kind of trend across their entire line of products. Yes, they are cheap, but they are cheap for a very good reason. A friend of mine started out with Lee, trying to save money. It was about six months later that the lee stuff was unbolted from the table and collecting dust in favor of more expensive but much better equipment.

Not necessarily. My press is designed to pump out a large volume of ammo in a short time. You can get a single stage press designed for precision for a fifth the price of mine. You'll get the same ammo or better, it'll just take longer. As for shotshell presses, I have no idea what they should cost. I just know that Lee's quality is cheap as a general rule.

Stop worrying about how you look, and start worrying about how you play. Get out on the field and play paintball the best you can, not stand at home in front of a mirror trying to figure out if your jersey matches your eyes.

Took my M&P out shooting and I love it! My arms are slightly burned because M&P's sometimes shoot the spent casings straight back during the break-in, but other than that, it's a real nice shooter and I like loads better than my buddy's Glock.

Here she is next to my SP101 in a sort of Yin & Yang ensemble.

^ Super sexy.

 

Anyone know a few "things" I could put on my shotgun besides the shell carrier along with side?

 

I think I'm going to be a "Shotgun and Handgun guy". I like my Rifle but I LOVE shooting shotguns way more along with handguns.

 

I currently have a surplus molle vest. Anyone know what I should put on it? All it has is a water canteen ATM. I was looking at getting a a few puches for shells then a few mag puches for a handgun or my rifle since they both use handgun magazines.

 

Finally I already have the bandolier as I mentioned, but I am looking at this: Well after looking for an hour I can't find it. Either way I was looking at a drop-leg carrier for shells.

So long as the Butler Creek's have the steel lips, you'll be fine with either.
The BX-25's might have a more durable shell if you're planning on doing a lot of extreme shit with them.

As Antonious had mentioned, I don't see a point in the BX-25's unless you are doing some pretty extreme things or test or some shiz.

If it were me, I'd go with the Ruger mags. Most fun failures are magazine related, not problems with the actual firearm. I've heard people say that time and again, and I've experienced it myself on a number of occasions. Now, the 10-22 is a bit of a juggernaught when it comes to operating with minimal failures and would probably be fine with any of them, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

Unfortunately my shop was out of 10/22s, so now I have to take my hunt online. But, with high prices online, shipping, and  my shop's transfer fee, it's looking like a 10/22 from online would cost me anywhere from $320-400, which is just nuts. So I'll most likely just wait until my shop gets in the 10/22 I want and buy it from them.

 

Hopefully I can find some Ruger mags in stock somewhere, they definitely seem to be the most popular, since everyone is out of stock on them.

My local gun shop has around 15 different 10/22's ranging from the standard wood 10/22,camo,takedown,tactical,hunting etc and many other editions.

According to my shop they had the one I wanted, and a standard wood one, and they recently sold both of them. And they have no idea when they'll get more in stock because the companies don't tell them anything. They say they order new ones every time they get new ones in. They're a small shop, not a ton of business, so they only order them one or two at a time. They don't have space for a dozen 10/22s. So they just order more when they sell out.

 

Fortunately for me, I found a website that has the 10/22 I want, at a good price, and they have it in stock. And with the transfer fee, it comes out to basically what I'd be paying for a 10/22 at my local store, after tax was tacked on. So I think that's a fair deal for me. Just need to wait until the online place opens, because they're closed until tuesday, so I can check and see if they have my store's FFL on file or not. And supposedly their shipping, which is free, is 2 day FedEx shipping, so I'm hoping I'll have my 10/22 by next friday.
