Why the .22's

Okay here is part of the reason for the influx of .22lr firearms.
I have been walking with a cane off and on for years. Now after my shoulder started giving out I can no longer handle a lot of firearms.
My mossberg 500 I can no longer shoot, either in handling the recoil or cycling the action when extended in a firing position. Close in I can do it but that requires dropping my arms to my sides. I nearly dropped the shotgun a month ago do to the pain from just running some simple dry fire practice drills.....once. First racking and I nearly dropped it. Add in the fact I can not lean on my right leg with much weight with out a lot of different medications I am now on I figured it was time to admit I am getting older.

Thus I have been buying some firearms I can fire without worry. Plus I like the .22lr round, especially out of a rifle length barrel.

So I sold the Mossberg my MBR and have started looking for a lefty friendly replacement. These links are for choice comparison not the place I will purchase them.

First up is the humble AKhttp://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/7-GRI2178X An M70 imported by Century International Arms. I like this mostly for the underfolder stock and price. I prefer .30 caliber and greater rounds for most things deer sized and greater. So this is my top choice right now butt....

The AR....theleftyfacehatingabouthadmethrowitatthetargetinbasic who I still detest do to all my experience with it in the military but those were all government maintained weapons....need I say more. So here is my second choice http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/7-G811036 I trust the S&W company to put out a good product, and honestly the forward assist and dust cover never made sense to me.
Finally the alternate AR is the Ruger version http://www.centerfiresystems.com/RI0011.aspx This has one feature listed that I like a threaded barrel so just incase I can change flash suppressor or add a sound suppressor.

I can stop any time.....

Okay after getting a new Savage 64.....I got a Marlin 795. So now there are 3 .22lr rifles in the safe. Is it bad I want a a Savage Mark II followed by a Mossberg 802 then a Ruger American .22lr.

Review of the Safariland 6378 coming soon.

So far....it is very comfy, the lock now works flawlessly, and it is much easier on and off.
The bad I had it arrive and not work....then it broke.....and now it works. More details to come.

I like Mossberg even more now.

Okay I just got off the phone with Mossberg service department.
I in weird sale to buy trade around sold my Crickett .22 for 110, then bought a Mossberg 702 used that had a disclosed broken recoil spring.
So after telling them I had bought the rifle second hand and needed a new recoil spring and wished to purchase one they dropped this bit of news on me. "We are sending you out a new one under the warranty," the very nice lady said to me. I was truly surprised and happy. Now I am really glad I put my stock in Mossberg, that is damn good CS right there.
Not only is it free, I am not even the original owner. True its a sub $10.00 part and probably is less then the shipping cost, but that is awesome right there.
Savage, Mossberg, and Sig, Iver Johnson, Smith & Wesson; had nothing but great luck with all of those.

Dear people on Facebook.

When someone gives you a detailed listing of an item, including model, manufacturer, hell even the dang color. Plus a color picture and you ask such mind numbingly easily googled questions as "Is it a single shot 22?", or this little gem of "What are you looking for trade?" when the original post clearly states "Not sure what I want in trade. It is a spare and honestly is just siting in the safe."
You make me want to delete the post at best, and at worst melt the firearm to slag and posting a picture of it with the caption "Your stupidity caused my rifle to commit suicide rather then possibly being owned by anyone that posted about it."

If you ever want to really know what steel to use in a knife.

Okay listen up if you have ever wondered about true scientific research and knowledge about steels used in knives here http://www.cliffstamp.com/knives/reviews/blade_materials.html This man has done more cutting, testing, and actual study of steel then any 10 knife nuts I have ever seen combined. This man is a metallurgist in every way. He for fun does statistical analysis of knife steels.....let me repeat that "For Fun."
