    Primary Arms SLx Compact 1x20 Prism Scope - ACSS-Cyclops. I have a hard time with red dots because of my astigmatism, so the prism scopes work out nicely for me.

    I just bought a Uberti Cattleman 45 colt Old West Antique finish. Can't wait to get out and shoot it!

    Soince you asked...

    I got a call from my FFL Monday and was pleasantly surprised to hear my suppressor stamp was in! Took almost 10 months to the day. I applied for an individual mid-march and My PRS buddy applied for a trust for his suppressor in January. His took 11 months. And, BTW, trusts are more complicated than they used to be.

    Anyway, here are some pics of my StingerWorx Emperor suppressor with OBX. What's OBX you ask? It's Over the Barrel RefleX, or Over the Barrel eXpansion [chamber].

    Before we get into the pics, maybe a word or two about what OBX is and does - then again, when have I ever been know to just say a word or two?

    Suppressors give gas a place to expand before they are expelled into the atmosphere. The more volume, the lower the sound. It may not be linear, but most of the effectiveness of a suppressor is strongly related to volume. I have a Trek T which is 5.5" long and a Liberty Triumph which is 7" long. There is a BIG difference in the sound levels. Given that, we can better understand the purpose of a reflex suppressor.

    Suppressors add length to a gun. And, you can't just buy a shorter suppressor and get the same suppression you could with the longer one - this assumes the can diameter is the same. That brings us to the reflex concept. The reflex adds the volume behind the muzzle, not in front of it. That added volume reduces the sound level without extending the length of the gun. Here's a pic showing a 7" conventional suppressor with the StingerWorx suppressor with the reflex attached. The 7" black suppressor shows where the end of the muzzle would be.



    There's not magic in reflex necessarily, but it does reduce the sound level without adding length to the gun. OTOH, it does add a bit of weight, although the Emperor is ALL Titanium so there's not a lot of weight added with the reflex. Plus, because the reflex has to go over the barrel, it needs to be a bit larger in diameter than the 1.5" front can. The idea is that when the gas exits the muzzle, it expands into the reflex volume first and then the rest of the suppressor. The effect is claimed to be 1.5-3 dB quieter. A typical suppressor would have about 30 dB of sound reduction so 1.5 - 3 dB is not "shattering", but that 1.5 - 3 dB in "real" numbers would be about a 19% - 41% reduction. I suspect the variance may have to do with caliber.

    Here's what the reflex looks like,



    BTW, you can run it in the form shown above, i.e. without the reflex.



    It looks big, but a good bit of the "big" is behind the muzzle and it's all Titanium and hence very light. Even with the reflex attached it's lighter than my 5.5" Ti and my 7" Ti suppressors. The difference is the Emperor is ALL Ti, the others aren't.

    And now, for a pic of the Emperor on my BSF 12" carbon fiber AR - this is so cool it's got to be near absolute zero



    And here it is on a Ruger American Ranch Rifle (16.25" barrel)



    So how does it sound? I wish you could hear it! It is quite, quite When my PRS buddy heard it, he insisted that he shoot it so I could hear it from "afar". It is quite - I have a new favorite.

    I happened to get an outstanding deal on this that's no longer available. But I have this one!

    It completely disassembles and the baffle system can be replaced if it becomes damaged or ineffective. Mine is a direct thread - which I prefer, but they also have Ti flash suppressors and rear adaptors for that.

    Finally found the 12 ga 870 express I have been looking for to make into a dedicated HD/RV gun. Guy at work sold me one he bought in high school so its the "better" era Remington 870 express with wood stocks, stronger finish and steel trigger group. Very nice even hunting wear. To me a deal at $120. I will stop changing barrels on my nice Wingmaster and have two 12 gauge pumps with dedicated purposes of upland hunting and HD/RV/Grizzly defense. Now to find a sling and decide on an extra ammo carrier.
    I learned my lesson that "convertibles" just do not work well for me as I get tired of changing things out as needed.

    @forester58 , take a look at the Esstac Shotgun Cards when you're shopping for ammo carriers (if you're thinking receiver mounted and not on the sling itself) makes things very handy, like when you want to carry different ammo for different situations. Easy to carry extra cards on your person (they fit in AR15 pouches & Tac vests if you use them). https://www.skdtac.com/Esstac-Shotgu...-p/ess.106.htm

    Thank you. I will check it out.

    Those are neat. I have never seen those. I like the fact you can just remove it if you want vs a sidesaddle.

    Took delivery last night of this ol' 70's-vintage Charter Arms Pathfinder in .22 Magnum:

    Anybody get anything good that's firearm related today?-pathfinder-l-side.jpg

    Definitely an impulse buy! I stumbled across it on GB last week, and placed a bid that I doubted would stand for long, but I lucked out & got it, at a very good price. I'm an old revolver fan, and for some reason, I really like .22 Mags!

    Aside from a fairly pronounced turn line, it shows very little wear, and the action is really nice. No slop at all and the lockup is rock-solid. Hope to take it out & shoot it a little on the weekend. I believe this one's going to be a lot of fun!

    Ordered a Short Reset Trigger (SRT) parts pack today for myself for Christmas. Hoping it will significantly improve the trigger on my P226 in 357Sig.

    I picked up a new Ruger Security 9mm today. My friend asked me why I was buying it since I told him it's very similar to the M&P Compact 9 I already have. I said I already have pretty much what I wanted from the S&W line so I thought I'd start in on some Rugers. He looked at me kind of funny. Some guys just don't get it, but I'll bet you guys do.
