My buddy and i took out his Mossberg bolt action shotgun and his Stevensons 720 pump action taticool shotgun out to the desert and laid waste to a few watermelons. The Mossberg was cool as **** when we could get the mag to feed the shells into the chamber. The Mossberg has a detachable box mag.

They have more issues, but aren't as understaffed as we are! We're down 3-4 techs! BTW, there's an open svc tech position. Google "Las Vegas coca cola refreshments jobs" click in the second link down, and figure it out from there!

Ps. You're welcome!

No not from the movie, I think it was the personal gun of the designer or owner of the company or something like that, not sure.

Last year I was new to long range precision shooting. The single most expensive component is the scope. Everything else is baby steps once you've got the rifle and scope. Took me almost 2 months to get my scope because they were in such demand so my rifle sat there unfired for too long. Once I got it set up I was amazed what you could do with a quality rig.

What's the longest range you can get at the lightweight sand pit spots?

Probably both.. Your shotgun put my bad shoulder outta socket for a second & my 30-30 has a bit of recoil too.

I went down this afternoon following the good Dr's map link. Much nicer spot to shoot than going to the MM16 trash dump. The area we stopped at had a good 300 yards which is enough for the irons on my AR :-) I see an optic in my future.

It's your shotgun. The .30-30 had a little kick but its less than a .308 and significantly less than a shotgun.

Was at the Cal Ranch store on Jones/95 yesterday, for anyone interested they had plenty of 40 s&w, 45 acp, and some 22 mag, I would have bought all the 22 mag, but he'd only sell me 1 box.

I was wondering about that place. I have been getting flyers since they opened, but I have yet to get over there.
