Sure is. Just think of it as shooting 9 compressed Cobalts 24 miles. When they hit somthing they will do some damage

[QUOTE=MarcS;5472441]I shot the 870 in the military, I don't remember them being really all that different apart from the safety. I don't have a lot of time with the 870, so I was just wondering what you thought about it. I might pick one up someday.

I love the 15-22. Awesome rifle when you want to blow through a couple hundred rounds of .22LR. It's a true AR-15 platform (the bolt is a hell of a lot different though) so it's great to train someone who has never shot an AR-15, and you don't want to burn a hole in your wallet. Great build quality, lightweight (most everything is composite polymer), quad rails, collapsible butt stock. It's also a really good rifle to teach a kid on, especially with the collapsible butt stock. It's a little picky about ammo, I will shoot mostly Federal, Winchester, and CCI. It's a lot of fun to shoot.

yea thats why i want one, because .22 is so cheap i can shoot every day. there really inst much of a difference between 870 and 500, but im comparing my 870 with a 500 tactical. my 870 is good for hunting and the 500 isnt.

Today we saw a truck with five deer heads sticking out of back. It was a avalanche my wife was freaking out. I pulled up next to him and gave him the thumbs up.

I like it When I was a kid I went on a museum battle ship from WW2 and you could crawl into those big turrets. I thought it was the coolest thing ever.

Ah gotcha. I might swap my ATI butt stock with an A2 style.

Some of our smaller members could actually crawl into the barrels of those 16 inch guns

Ew I saw Wolf ammo in there. Hope thats just range ammo and your not betting your life on that.

My family has a few SHTF guns. I gotta get pics tho.

For me:
Protection: Springy XD .40 SC
SHTF: Bushy Ar-15 Carbine
Fun: GSG-5 -- Look that up TONS of fun, mp5 in .22lr

How many of you reload, I want to get into it so I can pick up some more toys but just make my own stuff. These 3 guns are a staple, but I have others that go in and out fairly regularly

I bought my M&P 15-22 instead of the GSG 5 but I still want one. It's a good looking rifle. They are no longer being manufactured because of a law suit from HK.

Most indoor ranges won't let you shoot Wolf because it's steel core.

Yeah the wolf is for my outside range that I go to called the Pawnee national grasslands (gotta love going out into the middle of nowhere and being your own range master!)

For defense with the mini-14 I have Winchester Frangable and Horady TAP ammo, and for **** hits the fan I have lake city .223 penetrator.

The other Wolf ammo is 12gauge 00 buck and I will not be buying it again (it is too big to fit in the 2o round drum!)

I know where that is, I used to work out there. Ever see any short telephone poles with orange or white bands on them? They mark our buried cable. When I lived in Cheyenne, we had a big lot of public trust land where you could set up your own range. I miss that.

Yeah I see those posts all the time out there. It kinda sucks now because I used to be able to shoot cans, plastic bottles and pottery without any problem. But because people would not pack it out like I did they now say only paper targets, Metal reactive targets and clays alowed. I need to get myself some reactive targets and make a good paper target frame. I also need a range finder to determine my distance for scoping.

Hornady TAP is the best factory load i have found for my AR-15 .... I've had some 3 round groups that would all be touching at 200 yards ..... and for a factory load it was amazing . My 1 in 7 twist AR loves the 75 grain .

Pretty good video on it I found on youtube.

YouTube - Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 (.22lr AR-15)

My 12 year old brother just got one of those. I can't list all of the gun's my dad has though.

Ya i saw that lawsuit against GSG, glad I got mine, theyre gunna become rare real soon.

Best factory load for my AR has been PMC. Love'em, they shoot nice, i put around 5k rounds of pmc through my first Bushy before cleaning it, only then did it start to jam from that ammo. In retrospect, i should of cleaned it haha, im usually pretty **** about that, it was when i was younger.

My family used to have 500 acres in upstate new york that we would just go and blast, currently looking for 40+ acres in northen mid PA, just need plumbing really, to go blast and get away.
