Default New Weapon

Went to the local gun shop on Thursday looking for a new gun light that is adjustable intensity. Well as usual I walked through the gun racks and found a Remington 783 in 22-250 for $219.00. Obviously it immediately went on layaway. Will have this picked up on Jan. 22. Only problem is I don't like the cheap plastic stock, so this is going to get a Boyd's prairie hunter stock in the very near future.

I have a Boyds on a couple of my rifles......they seem a little slick though when wearing gloves (unless you select the custom checkering). Although the Boyds on my 17HH is so nicked up now it feels like its checkered.

I think the REM 783 is the old Marlin budget rifle design. Not sure if they make it for that but check out Bell & Carlson stocks or the Hogue full bedded over moulded stocks. I put the B&C on my Ruger Amer Pred 204....what a difference! Same with the Hogue I put on my Howa 223. Both are grippy and make them handle much better....I wish either made a stock for my 17HH because they would replace the Boyds in a heart beat.....only thing Boyds beats them in is aesthetics (in my opinion).

Yeah that was one thing but teaching lefties to clear malfunctions (Tap Rack Bang) for whatever reasons were mind boggling.....especially in SSEW/SSET course drills on the move/at barricades. In SAMI school they taught us to prepare for lefties by practicing in front of an inspection mirror on the quarterdeck.....lol......didn't work....

Lima Hotel Bravos....LHB's........had a AOC who would always ask how many of them were on a command shooters roster coming through.....; )
