Oooooooo... shivers...  Awesome piece!  Savage has an incredible .338 Lapua as well.  My Lando-juniors were trying to talk Old Man Lando into springing for one.  Couldn't justify the $$$ for the weapon or the ammo.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Today, the SIG 716 Precision Sniper is the new piston operated 7.62x51mm / .308 Win. rifle from Sig Sauer.

The rifle will be offered in four configurations:

* Tactical Patrol (12.5" barrel, almost certainly only on offer to law enforcement and military)
* Patrol (16" barrel)
* Precision Marksman (16" barrel)
* Precision Sniper (20" barrel)

Every model is equipped with free-floating quad rail and chrome-lined barrels. The Marksmen models feature heavy match barrels. The non-marksmen models come with backup iron sights. The 517 makes use of Armalite's AR-10 Gen II magazine.

It is almost a law of history that the same wealth that generates a civilization announces its decay. For wealth produce ease as well as art; it softens a people to the ways of luxury and peace and invites invasion from stronger arms and hungrier mouths.

This is a terrific category...given the times we're living.

Could I make a request that you include the average prices of the featured guns?  And cost of ammunition? 

Or even a link where we could go to get the information?

Gun of the day. Today, my personal concealed carry choice for every-day carry. The Walther PPK/s.

(and not just because I am a big Bond fan and collector)





When I moved from Northern California to NYC I had to sell mine.  Needless to say, NYC is not a place where a new comer can obtain CCW--unless you are politically connected; even then good luck.  It was the silver model.   8888crybaby  Sigh, I sure miss it--though I never missed with it.

By the way, my kids gave me the complete boxed set of 007 CD's for Christmas.  They know their daddy.

I felt the same way when I moved here and had to give up my Ruger P89 - and the 15-round clip I managed to pick up for it - and my little Browning .22 semi-auto pistol (my plinker).

I hear you.  I also had to sell my vintage 1958 Baretta .22 short tip out.  Mine had white pearl grips:

Today I wanted to share another one of my personal guns and a great alternate home-defense weapon. The MasterPiece Arms Mini 9mm which is basically a civilian version of a MAC11.

This little gun is a power-house. Made from stamped steel, you could drive over it and not hurt it (never tested that theory). Its construction is very simple and it uses few, heavy parts. I have run thousands of rounds through this and the only time I've had a jam was when it was my own fault and didn't seat the magazine correctly.

For home defense, it has the advantage of both a small size and the 30 round magazine. It is also simple to operate in the dark. (and this really turns heads at the gun range)





MPA930T
Top Cocker
one (1) 30 Round Polymer Magazine
one (1) Standard Extension
one (1) Mag Loader
Thread Size: 1/2 x 28
American Made
Ships in Gun Case
Lifetime Guarantee


Price $488

Note, MasterPiece Arms will be coming out with a suppressor for this gun later this year and I'll be first in line.

I forgot to add, it is also extremely accurate and the sights, while simple are very easy to use.

I have a flashlight attached but am considering a holosight as well.
