I know this sounds crazy, but it almost looked like that was staged and he did it intentionally.

I just bought this: https://www.gunbroker.com/item/879992207
Here are the specs: https://www.smith-wesson.com/firearms/mp-15-sport-ii

I need a scope for it.
It will be bunches of fun to shoot at the range.

I never shot an AR15, but will try my fellow's AR15 next week.
Train me for shooting that one.

I'm not sure how easily you can do it with the fixed front sight, but setting up your scope to co-witness your sights is a pretty good system to have. If your red dot battery fails, you can still use your magnification and just put the front post on the target.


The glass I got for mine is two pieces, both made by Vortex.
The main sight is an unmagnified red dot: the Vortex Strikefire II. Fairly compact and affordable. Sitting between that and my eye is the Vortex VMX-3T - it is a flip-out 3x magnifier.

With it flipped open to the side, I have no magnification, but really long eye relief on my red dot... perfect for closer targets. If I need to push out farther, I can just roll the 3x into place and I'm good to see clearly out to about 200 yards. Since my rifle is zeroed at 50 yards, the furthest I'm really going is about 300 yards, anyway, so it works well.
For iron sights, I put on a set of flip-down/foldable iron sights. If you wanted to go that route, you'd only need to change out the hand guard on the front end of your rifle, which would also remove the fixed front sight. Then, you just put on a new hand guard that has a flat rail down the full length.

Here you go Eve. An elegant target rifle. Lyman Sharps 1878 single shot 45-70 with a double set trigger and tang mounted site.

Shooting is easy. Cleaning the thing is another story.

Thought I'd throw this into this thread.....Camp Perry Shooting Matches were cancelled for this past May.

Didn't realize they were cancelled. To bad. Really enjoy watching them(TV). The practice, the skill, the concentration, etc

To bad for all the shooters.

My gun collection.

Top to bottom.

S&W MP Sport 2. I guess its a M4 style.

Left to right middle row.

Vintage Beretta 92fs 9mm
S&W 357 Magnum revolver. I shoot 38 special out of it.
Ruger Mark III target pistol. 22 caliber.

And on the bottom, a Beretta 20 gauge shotgun.
I would to do some more trap shooting with it.

I think I'm done collecting guns until I spend more time at the range.

Do that.

As I told someone else in a pm, guns are great. IF you're familiar with them. And IF you know how to shoot them. Otherwise, they're just that, guns.

The pm was about a specific gun I own, but haven't shot in a while. As I was relating my experience with the gun, I mentally went through the break down of that gun - as in how to break it down for cleaning. I could do it from memory. I............well............having guns doesn't mean much if you don't know them, and how to shoot them.

Go to the range, especially with the hand guns. Learn them.

Yes, I agree. I do love going to the range.

My fellow is way more hardcore into the guns than I am.

He was just here tonight showing me how to break down the ar15 and lube it.

I think we will go to the range next week.

I go through phases where I go to the range a bunch, and then not so much.

As long as I can become familiar with them I'll be happy.

Y'all be geeks about guns like I'm a geek about stereo gear... or vintage string instruments that now cost more than a third-world country's entire GDP.

I love it.

People (and their fetishes) are funny.

I have another question.

I recently picked-up my new handgun. I got the Beretta 92-FS Compact. I wanted the full-sized one, but they just haven't become available. The Compact is larger and heavier than most compacts and feels real good in my hand. My wife is able to easily handle it.

Here is my question. I am right handed, but not right-eye dominant. My left eye is not exactly dominant, but a bit better than my right eye. It sounds funny, but it's called cross eyed dominant. I have been reading about it and watching videos. The one that made the most sense to me was where you look through the two rear sites and then the target while trying not to rely on the front site. Here is the video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCa6jcfTlys

Question: What do you guys think about this? Is that a good strategy if you are cross eyed dominant?

I'm missing my right trigger finger due to a childhood accident and I'm right eye dominant. I find it easiest and quickest to get the front sight on target and raise the rear of the weapon until the front sight is in the notch of the rear sight. The target is always blurry if you're doing it right.

I have the front sights and two dots on the rear sight of my handguns painted with Hi-Vis paint. When the 3 dots are aligned you're in business. If the main purpose of your handgun is home protection, you're fighting the effects of adrenalin should you happen to need it. Larger, easier to get on target sights are the way to go. Also, these aren't the weapons for a light trigger pull. You're going to sacrifice a little accuracy at the range, and if target shooting is important to you, use a different weapon for that.

Thanks.

I have the gun for home defense. I was just piggybacking off of what arch and Eve were saying about going to the range and becoming comfortable w/the gun. I am not interested in showing off at the range...LOL
