Okay tmiles, now I see.  First you said 'using a Utah permit' but now you mention 'temporary residency' which makes more sense, but like you, I would never do it.  I could go to another state and buy a non-HBAR AR15, but that would be breaking Maryland law, so I would never do that.
 
Michael Hoffman, people moving to Maryland with an non-HBAR A15 must have purchased it prior to 10/1/2013 or it illegal to bring in and they must register all hanguns within 90 days of residency. Handguns sold in Maryland cannot have magazine with over 10 rounds.  The Free State indeed.

Maryland doesn't permit the sale of ARs without heavy barrels? Why is that?

I brought out the air rifles today , I have my Gamo sighted in pretty good , i'm beating the hell out of a cheap frying at 100ft.

My local WalMart  has no air guns,,,,, special order only. Tractor Supply has a few, mostly in the $50-$70 range (plus kid Red Riders). Yesterday at another WalMart, I saw a nice supply of adult air guns. Some are said to be "quiet", but I thought that they were all quiet,,,,,,,am I mistaken??

I'm waiting for my used, classic, Model 12, Remington .22 to get delivered to my local Cabella Store. It costed me $25 to get it shipped in from a Wisconsin Cabella, but I'm sure that I'll be happy with it. It looked to be in my sweet spot, price wise, and in good shooting condition. So many that I have looked at are junk, or collection quality, with few in the mid range.
 
It is a Pederson design, and I think that close to a million were built. I'm getting it to replace a Model 12 that my late dad used to take me shooting with. His was stolen in the late 60s or early 70s. He gave the SN to the police, and was of the opinion that it would show up "some day", but I'm told that no real data base exists for stolen guns from that era, and unless it is used in a crime, it could be re sold by unknowing people, again and again. 
 
My wife would comment that I don't need more than one .22 rifle (and don't really "need" the first), but just maybe, she will humor me and go shooting. For a lady who doesn't care much for guns, she is a good shot.

Well, my Gamo does make noise when fired.

I have the same Gamo as MH , the pellet breaks the sound barrier every time , it is louder than my marlin.22.
They make a whisper Series that is much quieter and looks like an Olympic pellet rifle.
My Wife and 10 yr. old Daughter both participate with me when I bring out the air rifle and pistols , my next .22 will be a Ruger 10/22 , easily and cheaply modified and the ammo is cheap and plentiful.
 
The hot buy around here is the AR-15 style and AK-47 rifle , they are easily found and are modified with a very high rate of fire , good luck taking them to a range.

I bought my 10/22 for around $50 at a Woolworth's at the Eastland Mall in Columbus more than 40 years ago. I still love it, and I could not possibly figure how many thousands of rounds have been run through it in that time.

Took the two century-old Colts out this week. The 1911 dates from 1914, and the Police Positive Special came off the line at Hartford in 1910.

Top, are you a good shot, or did you fire from the 2 yard line?? Except for manufacturing advances, which IMO, only make guns cheaper, I don't think that today's guns are any better shooters than the ones of 100 years ago. I like the old ones. 
 
Glock showed us how to use plastic, and so I am told by an industry expert, Kimber has learned to make perfect pistols, right off the line. The expert mused about if there is really any difference, to the consumer, between a pistol from his company that is adjusted by a gun smith after it comes off the line, or a Kimber that already works perfectly, right off the line.

Had a chance to go dove hunting this month with the start of the season over Labor Day weekend.   Here's a pic of my set up...Browning A-5, Light 20, Belgian, I inherited from my dad.  Early 60's, and still in excellent shape.  I take it out of the safe for special occasions...and the odd round of skeet.   This year it easily took a limit of doves.  Wanted to post this in his honor and as a nod to him, son to father.  He would have been 80 this month, and sadly left us too early 27 years ago.   We had a lot of good hunts together.

Now that's a comfortable setup. And that's a great shotgun. Bu where's your cooler, and more important, where's the dog? I figured out years ago that doves were created by ammunition manufacturers for the sole purpose of selling more shotshells. With a 15 dove daily limit and a box of shells containing just 25 rounds I keep at least fifteen people working overtime at Federal on a single outing.

Good questions....you've been around.   Cooler was parked between me and my uncle, stocked well with fluids, some cheese sticks, jerky, and cold apples....(it's a food forum after all).   My son in law had one of his chocolate labs out with us; the only way to go.  No fun finding doves in tall grass or weeds.  She did a great job retrieving for us.    I only used about a 30-35 shells for my 15 doves; a really good day for me.   Being sure to keep the shots in range was important....no blasting away at streaking and juking doves over 40 yards away...   And, most importantly, ice cold beer washed down some excellent grilled dove at the end of the day.   Marinated the breasts in a bit of Italian dressing, (after a short soak in some brine to help get the blood out)  wrapped in some bacon, and fired up the grill.   Good eating.

That sounds like a perfect day. I no longer have dogs so I have to hunt with friends who do. My dogs always hated doves. Oh, they'd retrieve them, but you didn't have any trouble knowing how they felt about it. They'd bring them back and practically spit them out in front of me and shake their heads with their mouths open as if to get rid of the taste.

Today they are $209.98 at Dicks ("Sale $50 OFF"). I see them advertised for more used,,,,,,,,those must be upgraded models. That they can do it for $209.98 is, IMO, a tribute to American manufacturing.

My wife sat down next to me on the couch the other night....I had the ballgame on; my usual vice in the evening...Cardinals couldn't make the playoffs; sad....anyway; she started asking me questions; a LOT of questions, about my shotguns...which she tolerates in the house....    I was really slow on the hints, as usual.  Our 10th anniversary was this week, and she let me know since it's a special one; well, I should buy myself another firearm.   She wanted to buy me one; and was asking our relatives what I'd like; but hey; she elected to have me pick it out....wow, I love this woman.  
 
I had had my eye on a nice Browning 20 gauge pump, lightly used, on another website; I have several Citoris already; and didn't want to spend that much money anyway....it should be here in about 10 days.

Smith & Wesson lost out on the contract for the new pistol (about 500,000 of them which seems to be an awful lot, since most of our soldiers, Marines, and air police are armed with 5.56 rifles). A guy in the know (he used to work for S&W) thinks that NH made Sigs may win out. Even partnered with General Dynamics, S&W couldn't pull it off. Too bad for Western Massachusetts, because they could use the good jobs.

tmiles,
 
I'd love to have a Model 12. What a great rifle.


It finally came in, and I got to take it out this morning. I used 400+ fps, CB, short ammo, and firing from the 50 foot line,standing, off hand, I managed a 6 inch group (mostly 4). I think that I'm more accurate, off hand, than with my longer Winchester. I like the CB ammo, which costs a few cents more per round than the longs. It is quiet, still has the power to blow through 1/2 plywood at 50 ft, and slow enough that I can see and then hear the impact on the target. It is so quiet that I don't use ear protection, and in a fraction of a second, I hear the report, see the impact, and then hear the impact. I use a splatter target that turns black around the bullet impact site, so it is easy to see where I am hitting from the firing line.

Only recently found out 'green tip' ammo is painted, and does not have a plastic green tip like some hunting ammo.

I've never fired a 10mm, but understand that the Glock 40 has a fairly light recoil considering the size. I'm at the stage in life where the biggest hand gun that I'm comfortable with is a 9mm. Granite State Gun Range is offering free rentals to vets this weekend, so long as you buy the ammo. If I get time to go up there, I'd like to try some new stuff out. Maybe I'll get to try the Glock 40, after watching somebody else fire one.

Yes, she is.   The new 20 gauge pump she bought me arrived; it's a beauty.  I tried it out for the first time last week at the range.  Good shooting, but I have to remind myself to reload....all my other shotguns are doubles or semi autos, so no manual reloading required.  It's funny what you get used to; all my rifles are bolt or lever actions, and I have no trouble remembering to reload between shots; it's just part of my routine.   The shotguns, not so much, at least yet.

I got my 20 gauge Browning BSS because after showing her shotguns costing $20,000, $30,000, $40,000, $50,000, $60,000 and $70,000 for sale at the Grand American my late wife noticed this nice side-by-side I admired at the Browning space for only $300. It was an early Christmas present, just in time for the start of grouse season that year.

I am looking to buy 2 rod and reel combos for this summer and I was thinking about Zebco 33. This will will weekend fun stuff for us. Are there any other brands or combos available that I should consider? We will be fishing small family ponds and a local creek.

This will be my 3rd summer with a cheap Zebco combo (I don't remember the model number). I bought it at WalMart for well under $20, and have used it 4 or 5 times. I've caught nothing but little "kivvers", that I threw back, but I've been impressed with what I got for what I paid. Zebco was a brand name when I was a kid, but now it is a made in China entry brand, but it works for me.

Zebco reels have always been first quality. But did you know that the Oklahoma company's name goes back to World War 2 when it made bombsights? The ZEBCO stands for Zero Bombsight Company.
