My "Moments of Glory" when shooting are few and far between, so...
I finally...finally shot a 300 on our Standard Rifle Qual course. Believe it or not, I did it with the SBR. So for those of you that poo-poo the "clunky old Colts", I did it with a 6933.
Okay, so it had a Geissele eSSA in it...and an Aimpoint CompM4s...and some other furniture upgrades...but for the most part it was a Colt. And maybe I ran some Miwall 75 HPBT ammo through it for stability, but still...a Colt.
Sorry, just saw this. I'll have to look at stash to see what I've got that I'm willing to part with. I've built a ton of them and really have too many. It was one of those, "Hey, I forgot about that upper, maybe I should build a lower for it." Or vice-versa. It's all @Grand Vol's fault.
No purchases. Gobs of M14s, M1 carbines, 1911s, and various wwii German handguns. A few Ariska rifles. Only thing I really considered was an Israeli surplus Hi Power but it had rust on the feed ramp and I set it down almost as fast as I picked it up. I did get to (almost) rub shoulders with Hickock45 and his son. Those gents are tall, and I’m over 6’. Worth the $5 I paid for entry.
