I got this mag extension a couple months ago for my FX-9 and finally got a opportunity this weekend to get out to the range and try it out. It's a +26 I have on a ETS 31rd glock mag. It ran 350 rounds fine with no issues. Lots of fun

That looks like fun. I assume it makes the fudds at the range somewhat angry?

 

You know, the "no rapid fire" sort that ruin gun ranges.

the guys at the one I go to are pretty chill, they don't really care what you do as long as you don't get too wild. I've only been to one range around here that wants you to pause for a second after every shot, not a big deal if you're trying to zero a laser or something like that but not really "fun"

Guy at the gun store today said there was a huge import of Carcano bolt action Italian rifles. (1800~ whenever they stopped making them)

He said they can be as low as $200~$300 price ranges.

Lettin' ya know if you're interested.

Don’t take any of my posts seriously.

Always find night sights pretty useless. Unless you're aiming somewhere brighter you can't see far enough for sights to be of use. IR sights on the other hand...

I've seen pictures of ranges that have signs up regulating how many shots per minute one can make.

 

Those people are the kind of gun owners that set the movement back. The kind who think that the 2nd Amendment has anything to do with hunting or self defense.

The main one in Anchorage is like that. 10 rounds or less in a mag. I've been rule 14'd a couple times.

I get no rapid fire but... really? Was there a potential law suit behind that rule?

"What constitutes rapid fire?"

"Whatever I say constitutes."

AFAIK It's literally just because of fudds who get angry at people for mag dumping AR pistols whilst they try and sight in their bolt actions for hunting season, who maybe fire 10-20 rounds a year, that already think the 2nd is based on hunting or self defense.

 

Some popular/common statements of theirs:

"Yer gonna melt the dang barrel!"

"You don't need all that fer huntin!"

"A .50 cal will suck the eyeball out of a deer on a miss!"

 

Basically, the gun world equivalent of a playground Karen.

Nah, they won't go out of business. When I want a range, I go to one much closer to where I now live. NRA, no range officer. You'll get State Troopers there on their range days. One of their range instructors actually sat down with my old roommate's girlfriend to teach her how to get comfortable with Glock. I suck at teaching.

Then if I want to take the fun stock out, I just go to a different place that's even closer, but people are dumb out there. It's a public use area and I've had people start walking out on the berm towards the back side of targets.

How else are barrel companies going to stay in business if I don't dump steel case ammo?

I mean, it is a very pretty place to go shooting and sight seeing. Truth be told, it's usually tourists going back there.

Good luck finding the correct ammo to fire through one...

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

A very long time ago, I had a Calico M950 that had a nasty tendency to go full auto with cheap range ammo.

"Bang!" "Bang!" "Bang!" "Brrrrrrr!"

 

oops.

given the mag was on top of the pistol, recoil wasn't a problem until it got down to the last 10 or so rounds.

Yeah. If there's any classic rifle ammo being made, I'm guessing it's for the mauser 8mm or 30-06. 

 

I don't think I've ever seen carcano ammo before. 

 

If anyone's looking for a wall hanger though... Good price.

Yes, the only accurate ammo is that made in ww2, the current stuff made is out of spec enough to be very risky shooting it.

I have a small handful of proper ammo, I shoot mine very rarely...

I heard tell from someone that does such a thing, that gas-checking swaged hardcast projectiles is about the best way to feed a Carcano these days. Lyman makes lubrisizer swagers in just about any diameter, and I believe they sell blank ones that can be machined. 

My Current Setup:

AMD Ryzen 2700X 50th Anniversary

Corsair Vengence LPX 3200mhz 16GB

MSI B450 Gaming Plus

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

PNY GTX 1060 6GB

ADATA SU800 1TB

WD 5400RPM 2TB

EVGA G3 750W

RAIDMAX Monster II

beQuiet PureWings 3 140mm x5

That seems like a lot of work for a rifle whose sole claim to fame is JFK...
