^Thanks - will grab some goggles that fit over my glasses for the time being.

I shot 6 round of skeet with a few "A" level shooters Sunday. It was a true thing of beauty watching those guys shoot either 24's or 25's every game. I did shoot a 21 and 22 . I couldn't have been happier. The other 4 games I was in the high teens. Great sport.

The interesting thing is that your score is not very far from their score. The shotgun sports are consistency games. I'm not the hugest skeet fan (born to a trapshooter, thus born a trapshooter) but when I am shooting with really good shooters and struggling for my 23s and 24s, they are running round after round of 25 straight and pulling down 100 straight easier than I hit a 25. Humbling.

It is interesting. I wouldn't say I was scoring the same by any means but I do shoot better when I am with better shooters. I think consistency is key for sure. I was in a rhythm when I shot my two best games. I rushed in a couple guys to try to keep up with them. They played fast.
Do you shoot five stand or sporting clays?

Being on a squad with solid shooters is a wonderful thing - they don't have to be the best shooters, they just have to understand that rhythm is important -- and that is part of the consistency that is key to the shotgun sports.

 

In the shotgun sports I am mainly a trapshooter (having shot over 20k rounds, which is something like a ATA Registered shooter takes down every few years) but I do enjoy shooting Sporting Clays for fun, not seriously (the only range is too far and too expensive for me to shoot regularly). I've never shot 5-stand or wobble. I used to shoot and compete in a number of other disciplines, though nowadays I do not shoot nearly enough.

I am not sure i am ready for league play, yet. I am lucky to have a good group of shooters at my club that have taken me under their wing. At this rate I will have thousands and thousands of rounds down range by the end of summer. If I am happy where I am at by then I will join a league for sure.
I go hog hunting in June for the first time. I am excited because I picked up a savage .308 hog hunter. I used savage before hunting deer and I like the rifle. My hog hunter has a threaded barrel so I will run it suppressed once I get that stamp.

The AK-47 variants are fucking terrible. Good luck with them you schmucks.
post #2979 of 3155
Whether or not an AK is terrible depends upon who makes it. An AK will never be as accurate, light, or as swift to handle as an AR. Meanwhile, An AR will never be as reliable or durable as a well made AK.

The best of both worlds: the FNC, if you don't mind the weight and can actually find one.

That's total bullshit. I think ( I know) it all depends on the set up. Using DI will more than likely give you some trouble. Using a short -stroke piston will not give you any problems at all. The short stroke piston will eliminate your jamming issues while maintaining accuracy. The AR platform has so many alternatives so finding a caliber you feel comfortable is not an issue.
post #2981 of 3155
Neither a short stroke piston nor gas impingement is as absolutely reliable as a full length piston directly attached to the bolt carrier. The penalty of course is accuracy. Moreover the various short-stroke piston setups offer no benefit to the AR design unless you're dealing with barrel lengths short enough to affect dwell time between the gas port and muzzle, say 10" or less.

I haven't fired an AK variant that I would trust. Perhaps that's my experience.
post #2983 of 3155
Well if we're limiting ourselves to the US civilian market, there's a lot of crap out there made from both designs.
post #2984 of 3155
Just my experience.
post #2985 of 3155
Never had a jam or any kind of failure with mine.
