If it were my pistol I'd probably try to lift the front sight up a bit and narrow the gap in the rear sight with JB Weld but it's not mine. It's also at best probably a $200 gun. There are better...

Some ammo burns faster than others, giving you higher velocities out of short barrels, more recoil and better reliability in marginal situations. I've found the Advantage Arms ammo listing to be a...

That was an old post but it's a newly revived thread and it gives me an excuse to post this picture again. Pulling out a pistol with iron sights and hitting anything at all at 100 yards impresses...

That's what I think. Of course filing the rear sight channel doesn't help, you'd need to lower the TOP of the sight. Or make the front sight taller. But, whoever it was, he was no gunsmith. Didn't...

Butchered rear sight on H&R 922

A friend brought me this H&R 922 with a 6" barrel to see if it shoots as badly for me as it does for him and yes, it does. I shot a 5" group at 10 yards and the center of the group was 2-3 inches...

I'm happy with the First Alert safe I got at Costco several years ago. That's not a brand name that I would have looked for but Costco's reputation for quality products is solid.

It's a safe. No...

If I did, it was 10 years ago. I did a small amount of tune-up then and haven't touched it since except to use it and it works fine. I would probably have used whatever was in reach.

I would agree completely but I don't have a 457, I have a 455 and a 452, which I dryfire if I feel like it.


Dry firing probably will not ding the breech. If you see that it does, don't do it...

If the firing pin hits the breech and dings it, it's a bad idea. If not then it doesn't matter. Your pistol has undoubtedly already been dry fired. Look at the breech and see.

IMO you've come to the right sport and the right place. .22LR can be very challenging and very rewarding.

And you don't have to retrieve your arrows.

Nick is diagnosing the problem as too much recoil with the Velocitors. I'm assuming it's less, despite the higher velocity. One of us is probably right. Let us know how it goes.

Welcome to RFC!!!

Different loads are rated for different velocities, as you know and you have 2 extremes there with the hyper-sonic Velocitors and the subsonic. However, things are never quite...

All it takes is one really good whack. Lots of lesser whacks don't do it. IMO that means a substantial brass drift pin, a big enough metal hammer, tape on every surface you don't want brass marks on,...
