The M14 is a progression in small arms, just like all small arms before it. It had it's negatives, like the weight of the rifle and ammo. But it also had it's pluses like penetration, knock down power and reliability. Especially compared to the M16 at it's time in history.
I was in when the...
I just purchased a S&W Performance Center 642 today.
Not sure I am going to like the grips but they can be changed to Hogue's easily.
I had 2 LCP 2's and had trouble with them dropping the mags after the first shot with defensive HP ammo.
I will not have to worry about mag drops with this baby!
Bitching on here relieves a little frustration but does nothing to let Wal Mart know we do not agree with their decision.
I have not steeped foot in a Wal Mart for many, many years. They have put many family businesses out of business since they opened their doors!
I would rather pay a little...
"Are we to assume that those who serve in the federal government are above the law? If they are not, yet they steadfastly refuse to obey the law which was written to guide their actions, i.e. the Constitution, then how dare they expect us to obey laws, which in more cases than not, they were...

I have the same problem with cold hands. I have tried numerous pairs of gloves over the years and nothing works for me.
I had to give up sporting clay's during the winter months because of my hands.
Try mittens with gloves as liners, might work for you!
When a ‘forest fire’ is lit, there is no telling which way it will go. It depends on the ‘wind’, the ‘fuel load’ and the ‘humidity’. The ‘wind’ is about to blow real hard, the “fuel load” is huge and the humidity is dropping rapidly. It just takes the right ‘match’, a lightning strike, or...
I do not notice any difference in the cycling and now I can at least find my spent brass.
Before the gun ejected them so far and in a wider span it was difficult to recover them.
Now they only go about 3-4 yds.
I have a mini 14 Ranch and agree with the op. Bought it for the same reason.
I had a trigger job done on it and changed the gas bushing from the 80 to a 50. Now I can at least find my fired brass!
I put a Vortex red dot on it, but doing so I had to add a cheek riser.
It works well for what I...
I went to the range this morning to test some 38 special wad cutter loads I had worked up.
Some guys from Remington Arms were there to final test the above new Marlin, without the suppressor.
They were putting 38's and 357 mags through them for the final function test before release. Nice...
Reminds me of a piece I read years ago about Russia.
Apparently they made trucks in western Russia, then shipped half of them to some place in eastern Russia. Took them apart and then made buses out of them.
All to keep everyone working!
I have a lot of trouble keeping my hands warm. A few years ago I spent the money and purchased a pair of the insulated version of these. My hands still get cold shooting clays when it gets to 10 or 15 degrees but they still function.
