New Bushmaster M4A3. I added the Eotech 512 holosight, new handrail, vert grip, tac light, and an untested 20mW green laser. Tons of fun at the range! :p

It,s a Bushmaster M4 A3 Carbine with collapsible stock. Its a gas operated semi-automatic. People who ask me why I own them have never shot one of them. They are uber fun to shoot, but really have no practical application for hunting.

Beware!! "Black" guns are addictive and you'll move through lots of ammo at the range so you need these:

And remember black rifles love company, so you also need a couple of these:

Its a Mossberg 12 guage, model 590 defender. The Marine Corps comissioned it several years ago as their shotty. It's the same shotty, but has a polymer safety switch and trigger guard (the marines' are steel). The MC recently changed to a semi-auto Benelli. Imagine that, US marines toting around an Italian shotty. :D

ETA: I have 500 rounds of Federal Tactical 00 buckshot around to play with. I also keep some Federal premium rifled slugs just in case a silverback gorilla ever tries to break in. :p

They are incendiary, not explosive. They just illuminate (trace) the path of the bullet. Used to mark a target position. They look cool at night but they give away your position too. I wasn't all that keen on using them!

Tracers are the rounds that "light up" around 50 yards out from the barrell (I have a few boxes of them too). Those are incindiary "fire starting" rounds that burst into a shower of hot embers on impact, and also function as tracers. Tracers are impractical for semi-auto firing, but they're fun to play with (at the range) which is why I have them. You're correct that they will also give away your position, which is undesirable in a true fire fight.

Hardrock, I feel your pain.

In AZ we don't register guns and you can carry open. (That means strap it on your belt and you are legal). It's a strange feeling the first time!

Made a trip to the rifle range today. Two 50 yard targets, 30 rounds on the left and 60 rounds on the right.

I removed the laser beacause it didn't hold it's zero under the recoil of my AR.

Bummer on the laser.

Nice groupings. What was your approximate rate of fire on those?

Around 1 round a second, or slightly slower. It's a range NO NO to fire any faster. :halo: The range master will rap your knuckles for rapid firing. I did have to change magazines on the 60 round target but rate of fire was consistent.

There's a look through an Eotech Holosight. It's designed to use with both eyes open, which allows for faster target acquisition.

Grandpa gave me a Remington Sportsman 58 at Thanksgiving dinner, much to the astonishment and shock of my parents, who never saw that one coming. It's a very nice shotgun; from what he tells me, it was the first gas-operated shotgun, and was the forerunner for the 1100 model and later the 11-87 model...It's a beautiful shotgun though...:rolleyes: and a great surprise gift:lildevil:

Sounds like a pretty cool passer-on. Hang onto it and pass it on to your's one day. Until then...post pics!! :D My father-in-law gave me a cherry Remington 1100 about 9-10 years ago that I've never fired. I keep it clean and dry in my safe, which is an unusual thing for firearms I own. I shoot everything else regularly.

Well, he bought it in '63 when it was new, used it for duck hunting, but had to stop using it because the newer, required steel pellets can't be used in older shotguns without causing damage to either the bore or to the choke of the shotgun...So basically, I can't really hunt with it, but I can shoot skeet:D

Other than that, he said he was going to give me his more "modern" guns when he passed on; leave them as in inheritence...One of them happens to be an Olympic Arms K7 Eliminator:thumbsup:, which is a specialized AR-15 derivative...

As for my current collection:

Nothing fancy, but they're fun to shoot nonetheless...:D
