I found my joy in multiple ranges. Abbotsford for when I want to bring everything and spend 4 hours there. Brookswood for when I want to kill an hour with a buddy shooting a few dozen rounds. DVC when Im ballin like a pro, but nothing beats outdoor shooting. A couple buddies, an ATV, and a few hundred yards to really stretch things out. Add them all together, and its not too bad at all.

I know. The wait is causing me stress.
But I am hopeful that it will all come together. Maybe it's naive ignorance, but I still dream about cruising by there after work on a monday with my pistols for some member's only shooting. I'll probably even buy a Glock by that point. It's one of the last chassis that no one in our crew has.

I'm thinking a 40 cal.

I picked up a few sets of Burris Signature medium rings and thought I would see what scope I could fit on my 452 Ultralux without removing the rear sight. I am planning on going with a Williams or dioptic set-up on the rifle, but wanted to try a scope out and see how it shoots that way.

I quickly tested a 6-24 x 50mm Sniper scope I had laying around - there was no way that was going to fit. So I broke open a new Zeiss Terra 4-12 x 42mm I had sitting around from a warranty replacement and it just barely fits on the rifle. There is maybe 1-2mm between the front bell and the rear iron sight and about 2mm between the rear ocular of the scope and the bolt. I'm going to try to shoot this set-up this weekend, if possible.

It is very quiet with standard velocity ammo - and it is proving to be quite accurate with open sights thus far. I would recommend one to anyone that wants a good target .22 that doesn't want to spend the big bucks of the Anschutz league.

Well, took the CZ to the range and I couldn't get enough elevation from the scope to zero it at 100y. Have I mentioned I don't like this Zeiss? Anyone want to trade something for a Zeiss Terra 4-12 x 42mm?

That's crazy.
I thought the zeiss was a high quality optic. Not being able to zero it in with standard rings on a bolt action makes no sense at all.

My Simmons had the same problem. But it's a $50 optic, compared to something worth so much more.

Every rifle/mount is different depending on scopes. I just in general have not liked this Zeiss since day one - hence it is in the box.

hey got a question for you guys

If i wanted to do IPSC and wanted to do the all stock run, does that mean the glock 19 gen 4 is not eligible since it doesn't come with a factory threaded barrel?

also for aftermarket barrels with the 19 has anyone have experience or heard anything from Lone Wolf Barrel or silencerco

For the IPSC info, your best bet is to contact the head of the IPSC shooters club at your range. I know Abbotsford has a number of sub clubs run by folks who have a lot of knowledge on the subjects.


On a different note, I have a buddy who is crazy about this Liberals coming into power thing. Yesterday he was talking about how they're going to take away the restricteds and semi autos and how we have to join some new gun coalition to protect ourselves.

It was then that I had to remind him that he pretty much fucked the gun owners of Canada when he fear-sold his pistols and semis, and failed to renew his membership at the local range. By reducing the numbers of safe gun owners, he is basically saying to the antis that he has given up. Instead of hiding in fear of a Liberal gov't, he should have gone out and bought another pistol, or another semi rifle. Instead of giving up, he should have maintained his range membership and joined a sub club. Hell, he should have donated to Ducks Unlimited!

In the last 6 months, I bought another pair of semis, a reload kit, and joined a second, then a third gun range. Combined with the internet, and the coalitions (not the NFA...) we won't be taken advantage of like they did in the early 90's. A quick look at the Swiss Arms debacle shows that as a group we are strong.

Mini-rant over.

^^^ which is why everyone needs to be signing this petition to have the ar15 de-classified.
https://petitions.parl.gc.ca/en/Peti...Petition=e-111

I know this petition has been posted before, but you need to sign this if you have not already done so. This is important to all firearm owners, even if you are a hunter or are not into the "tactical" scene.

Having a firearm classified as restricted for arbitrary reasons simply does not make sense. If we continue to allow the government to do this, it is only a matter of time before they start moving on to other firearms. What's next, restricting/prohibiting firearms that shoots cartridges that can kill a human being (ie. anything larger than a 308? Or arguably all of them?) or any firearm that makes too loud of a bang? (which is why we should legalize suppressors. But let's do things one at a time). I know some of these examples may sound a little silly, but so is classifying a firearm as restricted because it simply looks a little scary. Listen you dummy, firearms are inherently dangerous. People are not going to choose which firearm they are going to shoot based on what looks the scariest.

I can't remember if I signed it. I've signed so many petitions on the AR that I've lost track.


I would love to see the legality of suppressors change, and also the non-restriction of AR platform. We're a hobbyist group and we like to tinker with our guns almost as much as we like to shoot them. The AR is the tinkerers gun.
