No politics or religion please! Everything else is fair game.

Any gun owners here?

Post by Snakes709 » Thu Dec 06, 2018 5:29 am


Anyone else into shooting? After 11 years in the army and being on temp disability I got nothing but time to send rounds down range. I do all target shooting, mostly precision but also do some tactical shooting with my buddies from the army. Few pictures of mine and the wifes guns

On TDRL I'm assuming? They had me on that too for a few years before I was fully medically retired... Shitty way to be let out not being able to go out on your own terms but it is what it is.

I'm on the PC so I don't have my photos nearby but I do have a couple on my Instagram (@ZX10ARCHER) of some new toys I picked up last month or so to add to our little family. :)

(My new toy)

I picked up a Ruger AR556 for the wife so I didn't have to share mine anymore haha. Also picked her up a S&W M&P Shield 2.0. And I got myself a gun I have had a hard on for YEARS; Kriss Vector Gen II carbine in 45ACP.

My buddy has that same AR, just all in black and another buddy has the vector as well. He let me put a few rounds through. Pretty weird, but nice shooting gun. My blue camo one I bought complete, my long range one I built and my wifes AR with the acog, she built.

I was in the Canadian army so things are abit different. I was being accused of faking my injury by my chain of command and treated like shit so i broke my contract and released. Few months later my back got worse and the VA picked up the tab on everything. About to go to school to upgrade my math and then after that its school for aviation maintenance engineer.

Yeah, get the most out of your benefits especially when it comes to school. I tried to knock out as much as possible while I was still in. I got a late start but I was able to knock out two degrees before separating and the GI Bill has paid for most of this last one after I got out - with some to spare for another should I go back in the next 4-5 years. Really can't express how much those pieces of paper will help you down the road - especially if you're not paying for it.

Any future purchases/mods on your wish list?

Next things up on my list, in no particular order, is some glass for the Kriss, a 12ga and I want to do a custom 308 build. After that I think we've got just about every caliber between slingshot and hand cannon covered. :) So I think I am going to invest time and money in to learning how to do my own reloads.

I also have a remington 700 .308 with a timny 2 stage trigger and lantac muzzle brake. Havent used it in awhile as i have taken the scope off of it for my AR build. Gonna buy a Vortex Viper scope for my .308. Debating selling my betetta and picking up a gen5 glock 17. I’m a lefty so i really like the ambi options on the new glocks.

*Sigh*.... sadly none of the above toys allowed on my island, actually bugger all allowed now since all the new gun laws came in after the Port Arthur activities of one demented individual, which absolutely killed the sport (IPSC) that was my thang. Went from a fully sponsored Team Springfield shooter to dead sport after new restrictions on mag capacity etc in about 7 months.

Restricted to bolt action long arms and single stack pistols - can get semi-auto shotguns but only after satisfying all sorts of conditions

I shoot a Matthews compound bow now - so whatever you do don't let the liberals take over!

One thing my wife and I like about the Prescott area is the Prescott National Forest which has lots of good shooting spots for free. Our local formal range has been closed for more than a month due to internal political strife. Not that we have gotten some rain, the forests are open. Trigger time!

Its starting to become that way in Canada. We have 3 classifications of firearms. Non-Restricted, Restricted and Prohibited

The first two is a lengthy process to get. Have to sign up for a 2 day course (1 day per classification), upon passing the course that allows you to apply for your firearms license which usually takes 6 months. Now if you are just getting non restricted which is shotguns and hunting rifles, no further action once you get your license.

If you are going for restricted (handguns and sporting rifles), then you require a range membership and a ATT (autherize to transport) license to be able to transport the firearm directly from the range to home and vise versa. No stops a mcdonalds or gas stations. Strictly from your house to the range or gun smith and thats it. To transport a restricted the gun has to have a trigger lock and in a locked container. Has to be stored the same way at home. Pistols can only hold 10rds while rifles can only hold 5rds

Prohibited is next to impossible for a regular gun owner yo get. Its mainly for ranges that rent out guns and only a handful of ranges have this across Canada. Other way to uptain a prohib license is if a firearm is grandfathered to you. Same rules as above apply, can only shoot at legit ranges and has to be transported the same.

The liberals want handguns and sporting rifles banned and stronger firearm laws. Fucking retarded

Few videos. Punching out to 400m using my aim off points.


This one is 2 to the chest, transition to pistol and 1 in the head. My beretta is a pain in the ass, shoots low so takes me a second or two to get on target.

Nice. I just got off of TDRL myself. I've been thinking about getting into precision shooting but I'm stranded in California till my wife gets her PCS orders to Ft.Bragg/Pope AFB here in the next five months. Most of the rifle ranges have closed down so my kids and I have reserved to collecting/shooting handguns for the time being. Here's what I last took out to my local pistol range:
