So what are some of the closest but decent ranges you guys go to that permits AR-15's etc. Only just realized now that I won't be able to bring mine to DVC which would have been the closest for me (I'm in Van).

Here's probably a stupid question but for any of these ranges, I have to sign up as a member in order to go right? No such thing as just go here and there and pay drop in fees?

I personally have a Howard Leight Impact Sport and it's a great all around electronic earmuff.

http://www.amazon.ca/Howard-Leight-R.../dp/B001T7QJ9O

As for eye protection, there are lots around. I don't have any particular recommendations since I'm using a generic brand I found on amazon.

I was not able to find glasses that fit my children that would fit under their muffs comfortably. I was recommended to try the ESS Suppressor as they have super thin plastic ear pieces that work great under muffs. The guy that recommended these flies Apache helicopters and he swears these are the only glasses he can wear for several hours without issues under his ear muffs/headphones.

I now wear them all the time, they are very comfortable and do not break the bead on the muffs.

I use Smith Optics Aegis Echo. Although these glasses are a little pricey, they are actually ballistic glasses that is made for shooting protection.

Eyes and ear protection are the things I don't mind spending a little more money on as you obviously only have one set of eyes and ears. Another great thing about these are that they have super thin ear pieces that are designed to fit under over the head ear muffs.

Yea good point. Reading up on glasses it seems one of the main concerns is if they fit properly under or over ear muffs.

As for muffs, that they're not so big that it gets in the way of the stock.

Of course the most important is protection first.

Thanks for helping a noob out so far. I'm sure there are more things I need to consider buying but I'm well on my way.

+1 for the Smiths.
I run these when I'm wearing contacts, and they're nice. The problem is that I rarely wear contacts to the range.

Italian Sporting Goods is having their summer sale today and tomorrow. I picked up a nice leather shoulder holster for my Dan Wesson. I had been eying it for the better part of a year but didn't want to pay $200 for it. They had it stashed downstairs, got them to bring it up, I hummed and hawed and got it for $100. Deal.

Also picked up some G96, a few reloading tid bits, some Federal bricks for $30, and also some smoked BC plastic hot lips 1/ mags for $15 each. I went around lunch time and I expected it to be a bit more busy.

So I've taken that MK22 out a couple times now. First time my dad took it out and the thing shot like fucking garbage, obviously the guy on CGN was either bullshitting me or somthing but the gun could barely shoot 3-4 rounds without jamming, couldn't cycle casings etc.

Took it all apart and addressed the problem areas that the factory "fix" was suppose to take care of. Took it back out this weekend and shot much better, could get through full mags without a jam. Few jams from bad cycling but it was fully improved.

It's a pretty cool gun, on the recoil/bolt opening and closing it has a bit of a different sound/feel, it really does feel like an actual carbine not just some dinky .22

I've been working on cleaning/repairing/refinishing my friend's Ruger .44 Deerslayer over the last several months. The rifle was in really rough shape when I first picked it up from him, I have lost most of the pictures but the stock was beaten, dented, cracked, and both the stock and inside the action had never been cleaned. Ever - since 1974.








So I stripped it down, started reading how to try to restore this poor old stock. I stripped it with Circa 1864, steamed all the dents over the course of another weekend, then let it dry before applying epoxy to a large crack and then letting it sit for another month to completely cure.






I sanded the stock first with 100, then 220, then 600 before starting to add my layers of Tru Oil. I only did one coat per day of Tru Oil and after the first 8 coats I started to smooth the finish with 1000 grit and then the final two coats I sanded with 2000 grit to get it smooth.

I discovered what I initially thought was a scratch filled with dirt was actually a crack across the grain on the pistol grip. From another thread that I asked about this crack, I learned that this piece of walnut is an outside cut and the crack could have happened during falling or perhaps a wind crack. My neighbour knew it was an outside cut just from looking at the stock while I was sanding - as most of the stock is a nice cherry walnut but the front forearm on one side is completely blonde - it's kid of unique.




Here it is after three coats



Here it is after 12 coats, polished and also carnuba waxed:

The half blonde side -



Reflection finish








I messed up the finish a little during the polishing stage - so that took more time to correct. This whole project was all about learning how to do this properly and now I think I am ready to try another project with some of my other stocks. It was a lot of labour but a lot of fun, I really enjoyed seeing it slowly come back to life.


I can't wait to get this back to the range.

Guess I missed wood working, decided to make a target today. I had some of those black plastic stands you stab into the ground, but they keep getting blown over in the wind, and blown up from bad aim with open sights.

I had the folding table saw stands already and the wood laying around, so $3.80 for some bolts and wing nuts, I made this adjustable stand. I also drilled multiple holes in the top that can hold straws, golf tees/balls, and my clay holders. I'm going to work on a different stand that will have a swinging target as well.

Used target is from sighting in my new Zeiss Terra - had already done a dozen shots through my 7mm Mag and that was enough for the day

Closest thing you can carry to a pistol in the woods without an atc. I own a fullsize chiappa and found the quality lacking. Took a while to break in but works pretty decent now. I have the 1892 alaskan in .44 mag as a bush/camp gun. I keep it loaded with hornady .300gr xtp or custom loaded .300gr hardcast +p stuff for bears and whatnot.

If you dont have a levergun you should grab one

I went with the Marlin 1895 chambered in 45-70. I wish I would have waited for this to come out, as the .357 is a much cheaper round, and a lot easier to find. I'm not a huge Chiappa fan, but this is such a simple rifle.

That said, one shot from a 45/70 will take down ANYTHING the BC wilderness has to throw at you. It's a cannon!
