Did You Buy A Gun Today

I picked up a CMR 30 this week.
Ohhhhh...please give a range report, I've been kinda eyeing them in the back of my mind...might hafta put one on my hit list. I've got the PMR30 already so it's a shoe in. I'd like to know if they're as accurate as the PMR and function the same. Mind you I have the gen 2 PMR. My BIL has the gen 1 and can be a little finicky with ammo and mag loading.

Will do!
 
When I picked up my Tikka Hunter, my Son saw a Tikka T3x Lite Roughtech 6.5 CM that was already sold and waiting to be picked up.
He ordered one on the spot.
It arrived on Monday and I didn't get a chance to set it up for him until today.
I took it apart and degreased everything, mounted Leupold bases, rings and a 4-12x40 Rifleman on it for him and gave it some Weapon Shield in all the right places.

I got a call today from Bill Goodman that my Shiloh Sharps Business Rifle is in! Sending the final payment and FFL in the morning! Life is good
 
I don’t know if it counts, but I helped a friend buy his first two firearms today. He and his wife are worried about all this craziness heading into the election and asked me to help him since he has no clue about brands. In the process I discovered a good and honest gun shop that doesn’t price gouge.
My buddy bought a Sig p320 C carry for $539 and an m&P 15 with Crimson Trace for $749, both fair prices.

It's a pretty fun gun to shoot. Finally got to the range yesterday with it. My only issue is it jams pretty easy.

Jam or FTF/FTE? The PMR has a reputation for same issues due to how the mags are loaded. I slap mine after every 5 or so rounds to make sure they are seated where they should be and usually only load 25 instead of 30. My PMR had a few hiccups at first but after a few hundred rounds they all but disappeared on their own. I found it doesn't care for the cheap winchesters either but runs CCI very well no matter if RN or HP.

Don't give up, clean it real good, pack the mags every 5 rounds up to 25 or so, and fire at least a couple hundred more rounds through it. The gen 1 was notorious for those issues but the gen 2 seems to be better, at least with my experiences.

I picked up a P16-40 last week for a cool price of $319 plus tax. Kind in rough shape, finish wore off, rust inside and out. Completely disassembled. Got it cleaned up and it looks structurally sound. Gotta go and shoot it. Then debate on whether I want to spend money refinishing it. Been researching cerakote and I can pull it off myself.

Then the question is, do I make it a 10mm like my other P16-40 or do I stick with 40, go .357 sig or maybe 9x25 Dillon. Decisions, decisions...

Lots of options with a 1911 platform.

Found a nice Savage 340 in 30/30 today. 2 mags.
I am anxious to work up a 130gr Hornady SP load for it once I get it all cleaned up.

I picked that one up last year. Mine says Springfield model 840. Wanted to load up some Spire points in it but the mag is too short to make that useful. Ended up loading 130 grain Speer FNSP using LVR powder. Getting 2700 FPS out of that thing.

Mine came with the scope and was getting about 1 MOA with it. Once I found the load, I took the scope off and went with irons. Found the Williams fiber optic sights for the Marlin 60 will fit on the Savage. Had to file down the bottom of the back site to get it on target though. It was shooting way high. I like it with the fiber optic sights. Great for close up work.

This, good sir....is a very nice dilemma to have....which cartridge ????


Good to know the bones are solid. Lots of finish options out there. We used to have a nice certakote shop in town....but he didn't make it...was really hoping he would. They did great work. That being said...there may be a good shop near you......or good ole Brownells sells some gun coating rattle can & bake stuff that will likely work well, too.


Super options on the chambering.

Hopefully the factory barrel will be in good shape....would be nice to have a .40 s&w on hand for when ammo sells get wonky...seems there is usually some .40 around.


10mm sure is fun....and capable. Could make a good woods pistola....hogs, deer and yotes wouldn't like you...at all.

.357 Sig is a screamer. Maybe a bit more brass prep...but what's not fun about launching 130gr head at 1,500 fps +.

If you can find a 9x25 Dillon barrel you'd be ready to have some big fun, too. Dillon still lists the dies. Screamer that would be a hoot.

I have been toting the p16-40 with 10mm barrel for maybe 15 years or more in the woods. Still have the 40 barrel for it. I have a reamer now and can just ream out the 40 on the "new" gun to 10mm if I elect to go that route.

Will probably be awhile before I decide. Been spending too much money on toys lately and need to pace myself...

Christmas is coming and I am getting the hots for a 10 mm auto. I have been reading a lot about them and I have wanted one ever since they came out. I like big guns. I just finished shooting fifty 44 mags in my T/C with 14 inch barrel. My hands hurt, but it feels good. I like have the power in my hands. You never know what you are going to run up on in the woods, or who may come to your door. I think one 10 mm shot would equal five 9's. Heck, I think I'll head to the LGS in the morning. Good Idea.
