So those youtube vids of those miniguns/bigger calibres, they are fired only at a gun club's range and locked there?

12.5mm is still plenty big, still give you that punch in the chest when 10m away.   Smile

 

.50 BMG isn't banned in Cali, only 50 BMG rifles so in a stupid twist Semi auto M2 belt fed guns are legal but single shot rifles aren't. NFA weapons (machine guns, AOWs like shotguns that never had stocks with barrels under 18 in. in length (which are actually legal in California) guns with bores above .50 if not otherwise exempt, "sawed off shotguns" and silencers) can be stored in the home like any other gun.

If you want to go really big bore without the whole DD laws look up "12 ga from hell" it is about a guy who has built up some .72 in barreled "shotguns" and even bigger or you can look in to muzzle loading cannons, you can go as big as you want legally, people build bowling ball cannons from high pressure cylinders all the time.

Read his post on GUNCO. He does some wild stuff taking the Shotgun exemption to the limit. There some very talented and good guys on Gunco. One of the cool effects of the bowling ball mortars is the holes in ball make a whistling projectile.

No new hardware here. The gun laws just keeps on getting more ridiculous every week. You (well, at least the U.S based members) would not believe the shit they'll put us though just to buy another pistol. And that crazy guy who shot kids in Norway didn't help at all. In here it seems like we - the law-abiding Finnish sports shooters - were responsible for that crap. Or at leasts that's how the left-wing media brings it up.

 Anyway, more nicer events. I finally got to B ranking in local IPSC production division. Lot of work to be done to get to A, let alone Master, but we're on a right track anyway. I just wanted to show you my competition gear.

 

- Beretta 92 Stock

- 7 Meg-gar magazines, 3 of them 17 rounders (the ones with colored base plate) and 4 15 rounders. Now that only 15 rounds are allowed per magazined in Production, all my mags are competitive. 

- Sickinger Speed Machine quick-draw holster

- CR Speed belt

- 3 Safariland 771 adjustable mag holders. I always take the first mag from my pocket, so depending if the stage starts chamber empty or loaded I can take 60 or 61 rounds to a stage. So far it has been enough. Rules limit the highest minimum shot count to 32.

- Peltor SportTac II active ear protectors. I actually won these from a lottery in one less formal shooting competition. Very good protection, the active part is less than impressive.

The go-to guns in this division in Finland and I suppose whole Europe are Glock 17 and CZ 75 Shadow. I like shooting with a more rare gun and I don't feel like giving any advantage. The 92 Stock is just pure goodness that has taken a form of a gun. And finally, I never go to a competition without my dedicated race shirt. Arsenal Gunners (pun so intended) away shirt (of 2009 I think) with custom name and number:

What is the rifle on the far right with the  bull barrel and the scope?

I'd bet on 10/22 Tactical. Some kind of 10/22 it is for sure.

My first gun when I was 10 was Ruger 10/22 it's a timeless classic and it has come a long way. It does look just like this one.

Yep, good eyes, a 10/22 with a Hogue Overmold stock just like the one posted. Smile

The Desert Eagle is indeed .50 AE.  It's more of a range toy than a serious gun.  I think I may have put about 40 rounds through it since I acquired it two years ago.  I do, however, have reloading dies, brass, and 300 gr. Speer gold dot bullets just waiting to be assembled...one of my many pending projects...

 

From left to right on the rifles:

Izhmash Saiga-12 Converted; Yugo M70AB2 ak clone, Spike's Tactical 16" Middy, Mossberg 500A, Ruger 10/22 w/ Green Mountain barrel

 

From top to bottom on handguns:

Springfield 1911A1 (w/ Kimber .22 conversion top) and SWR Spectre .22 Silencer

IMI Desert Eagle .50AE

Glock 19

Taurus 617

 

It's sad, though, as I have lost all but 2 in a tragic boating accident. :(((

Seeing these 1911's makes my heart sing. All guns make me smile but 1911's make giddy. John M Browning sits (in a smaller chair of course) next to Jesus in my book.

Looks similar to a P90 at first glance but i bet a 10/22 is under the hood.

@ fortyfiveautomatic

I didn't realise how much a Taurus 617 looked like a Charter Arms Bulldog Pup until I saw your post.

That is a FN FS 2000 and i believe 2000 is the price you are going to pay for one .

I had a Mini 14 Bull-pup back in the day and it had horrible trigger pull, was not accurate at all and would blow you eardrum out when you shot it because it ejected shells so close to your ears. The FN supposedly has corrected all of these shortcomings.

 It's the only Fs2000 that shoots .22lr instead of .223 . That's because there're the Ruger 10/22 under the hood. 

 You could say the ruger 10/22 is a budget gun. You could get a brand new one here at the store for less than 200 bucks. Plus it shoots .22lr that's really budget there. Ammo prices had been going up ridiculously the last few year, it cost so much to shoot my AR that I have to limit myself to only go to the range once a month. 

 I bet some of the Call of Duty fan boys would recognize the fs2000 right away Smile

Look at the clip on the FS2000 you posted then go to the FN link I posted and look at the clip on the real FS2000 and I would say the one you posted is not a .223 .

 It does get a lot of attention when we go to the range. Since the ammo for it is so cheap, every one i talked to about this baby could try a clip or 2. In exchange I had fire so many different and rare firearms in the last 3 months Smile I love it. 

 By the way, I love hanging out with all the old time shooters at the range. Love their wisdom and they are really cool and open minded people. You would think people that are into guns are gun nuts, violent, trouble maker but it is not what it seems. I think the people that know gun they have more respect for it.

It is so true that is one of the reasons I go to the range instead of a sandpit, you meet some of the nicest most well educated honest people and they love to share there toys and knowledge. I don't think I have ever been turned down when asking someone to try there weapons and I have never turned anyone down when they ask to try one of mine out. It is also really helpful when you are looking for a new piece when you can try one out first and ask the owner how they like it. In the last 20 years I have not bought a new gun without testing one first. I just picked this 45 up after years of owning Glocks in 9mm  and 40 cal. I always stuck with a 1911 for 45 cal, but after shooting the 45 cal Baby Glock I had to get one even though I already have the 9mm Baby Glock.

That's how it should be done. Here, in promised land of leftist gun-hating hypocrites that's usually not possible. Of all guns I have owned, I never have fired one before buying. I have seen only 2 guns I have bought prior to purchase. And like 4 or 5 I have not even seen before buying. Maybe picture, but not in person. I've had luck though. Only one has been bad, and it was the other of the ones I saw before buying. Paid something like $30 for it, so it wasn't a big deal.

Then again, I once dished out 700 euros (like 900 dollars, back then maybe even more) for a used pistol I never saw other than in picture. And I paid it before the seller sent it. Not perhaps the recommended way of doing online business, but it went well for me. That was the Beretta 92 Stock in question and I fell in love with it the first sight. And if you think $900(ish) for Beretta 92 is a lot, go and see what they are asking for Stocks in Berettaforum. You won't find one with less than four-figure number on the price (or if you do, get it!)
