Not sure how much finer an adjustment anyone would need in such a rest plus, those jaws are very adjustable for multiple size rifles and a few of the pieces are not installed, while they were setting it up.
At 1k it gets into very small adjustments. Will get the bags (I use graded sand for fill) perfectly settled and the rifle bubble leveled which takes a few minutes. Then and all of this is very abbreviated get the front rest stop adjusted and make sure the rifle slides on the front and rear bags and stays level with no binding. There is a lot to this... Every time I go into a lot of detail catch a lot of crap but yes it looks simple but if you like to bring home wood as we say it is the only way. :biggrin: I like the 2 separate tops so I do not screw up my bags and settings for the wide competition rifle just put the smaller narrow top on for a sporter. Some shooters are "bag squeezers" for fine adjustments I am not as a general rule but you do what you have to do when condition is right to get the shot off. These rifles at least mine have no safety and 1.5 oz triggers that you do not pull you touch with almost the tip of your finger.

Seems holding a rifle like that to shoot is taking the skill required by the shooter without the rest out of the equation.
I can see using one when dialing in a scope, but for actual competition??

Well----if that was the case then everybody could do it. Like I said above it is very complicated and involves many things such as ammunition loading/preparation and being able to read condition just as a couple of examples. Setting up the rest, bags getting the rifle settled in perfectly is like laying the foundation to your house. The tips of the feet on my rest are carbide so the concrete does not screw them up and they stay level during the relay. Screw that up forget about the rest.....

I’ve been looking for a Henry in .357, or .45 for a long time now. They had this exact one at Sportsman’s a couple weeks ago, on sale even. I almost went for it, but I really want one in brass or silver.

Ed Brown makes great 1911 mags, including for 10mm guns.

69729

I know my distributor has 8 round Ed Brown's in stock with stainless steel bodies and they come with 2 different height base plates to optionally attach if you're running a mag well. They're about $25 each, plus shipping.

The little gun store by where I work posted online Thursday night at midnight that they had a Henry in .22 that just came in. Called them when I got up Friday morning and it had sold in less than 30 minutes.

...don't be such a snob...have a few and relax...the guy makes a lot of sense if you can get through the delivery...

...you are probably taking some stuff he says too seriously...he is often satirizing himself...

...his videos need some editing for sure...LoL...

...I appreciate his dry humor and find him quite amusing and often informative...

...I especially like when he starts in on the 9x19 Luger fags...not that there is any wrong with being a fag... .!.:D.!.

I'd drink a beer with him, and shoot guns with him. But I'm not going to watch his videos.

that thumb isnt supposed to do much , its a goofy crutch for rookies. You wont find one on a world class shooters gun.
Just built a holster for a customer with a CZ Czechmate that was outfitted with a huge gas pedal. Brand new and unfired, great gun with a 1.75 lb trigger out of the box. It'll be down to 1.3-1.4 lb range after break in and some mild polishing.

Awesome gun , one of the best ! At first try the gas pedal seems like a good idea. And for the average shooter it might be. I used to squeeze the dust cover portion on my 1911 with my thumb thinking it helped. I was shown by a guy who knows , that it doesn’t. You will end up with a gun that recoils oddly , not fairly straight up and down like it should if you’re using a proper stance and grip. Every time I pick one up I’m impressed with how it feels. If you’re into competition shooting you won’t find many master class guys using it. There is one I’ve seen. JJ something …. Oh the guy who showed me the error of it. Some kid named rob leatham.

Think you and Tinny are too close to one another lol.

Cowboy Solution For My Yankee Buddy Hapo!

Cowboy rules for:


Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Nebraska, Idaho, Nevada, and the rest of the Wild West are as follows:

1. Pull your pants up. You look like an idiot.

2. Turn your cap right, your head ain't crooked.

3. Let's get this straight: it's called a 'gravel road' I drive a pickup truck because I want to. No matter how slow you drive, you're gonna get dust on your Lexus. Drive it or get out of the way.

4. They are cattle. That's why they smell like cattle. They smell like money to us.

Get over it. Don't like it? I-10 & I-40 go east and west, I-17 & I-15 goes north and south. Pick one and go.

5. So you have a $80,000 car. We're impressed. We have $250,000 Combines that are driven only 3 weeks a year.

6. Every person in the Wild West waves. It's called being friendly. Try to understand the concept.

7. If that cell phone rings while a bunch of geese/pheasants/ducks/doves are comin' in during a hunt, we WILL shoot it outta your hand. You better hope you don't have it up to your ear at the time.

8. Yeah. We eat trout, salmon, deer and elk. You really want sushi and caviar? It's available at the corner bait shop.

9. The 'Opener' refers to the first day of deer season. It's a religious holiday held the closest Saturday to the first of November.

10. We open doors for women. That's applied to all women, regardless of age.

11. No, there's no 'vegetarian special' on the menu. Order steak, or you can order the Chef's Salad and pick off the 2 pounds of ham and turkey.

12. When we fill out a table, there are three main dishes: meats, vegetables, and breads. We use three spices: salt, pepper, and ketchup! Oh, yeah ... We don't care what you folks in Cincinnati call that stuff you eat... IT AIN'T REAL CHILII!!

13. You bring 'Coke' into my house, it better be brown, wet and served over ice. You bring 'Mary Jane' into my house, she better be cute, know how to shoot, drive a truck, and have long hair.

14. College and High School Football is as important here as the Giants, the Yankees, the Mets, the Lakers and the Knicks, and a dang site more fun to watch.

15. Yeah, we have golf courses. But don't hit the water hazards - it spooks the fish.

16. Turn down that blasted car stereo! That thumpity-thump ain't music, anyway. We don't want to hear it anymore than we want to see your boxers! Refer back to #1!

A true Westerner will send this to at least 10 others and a few new friends that probably won't get it, but we're friendly so we share in hopes you can begin to understand what a real life is all about!!!


And there is more.............
The COWBOY Solution to save Gasoline.
JOE BIDEN wants us to cut the amount of gasoline we use.....

The best way to stop using so much gasoline is to deport 15 million illegal immigrants!

That would be 15 million less people using our gas.

The price of gas would come down.....
Bring our troops home from Afghanistan to guard the borders.....

When they catch an illegal immigrant crossing the Border, hand him a canteen, rifle and some ammo and ship him to Afghanistan ....

Tell him if he wants to come to AMERICA then he must serve a tour in OUR military....

Give him a soldier's pay while he's there and tax him on it......

After his tour, he will be allowed to become a citizen since he defended this country.....

He will also be registered to be taxed and be a legal resident.....
This option will probably deter illegal immigration and provide a solution for the troops in Afghanistan and the aliens trying to make a better life for themselves. .......

If they refuse to serve, ship them to Afghanistan anyway, without the canteen, rifle or ammo.

Problem solved......
