Suggestions...

FTE suggests a bad ejector or a weak ejector spring. Disassembling the bolt can be hairy, but I'd inspect both the ejector spring closely (magnifying glass or jeweler's loupe). Invest a few $ in a...

I've owned the Charter Arms as well, including the CA II pistol. Keep in mind that the CA barrels and the AR barrels are NOT interchangeable, though they look very similar.

FTFs might be remedied...

You might try this...

Unload the shot, cup and powder from the shell. Cut slits lengthwise in the casing, but DO NOT make them full length; you want a small collar at the top.

Fill with very, very fine kindling. Try...

Papoose vs. AR-7

The Marlin Md. 70 Papoose (really a Marlin Md. 60 that breaks down) is, IMHO, superior to the AR-7. You can buy a good Marlin 60 and swap out parts that are worn on the Papoose. I've owned both,...

You just need to show that you can't operate a closed knife with both hands. I have some nerve damage in my neck that affects my thumb and forefinger (blown C5/6 & C6/7). If I pushed the issue, I...

I've owned a hex 1899, a hex 91/30 and the M44. The 91/30 was impressive. Better than the 44; if you don't use the bayonet, the 44 won't shoot worth a darn. The bayonet is critical on that model....

No thanks...

Look how far off axis that Red-Dot sight is! What, 3" above the barrel??

Nothing but trouble. A $10 shine on a $2 pair of shoes. Pass.

Agreed. No such thing as an "accidental discharge". It's "poor handling" in almost every case!

Not being preachy; I've had a couple, including a 9mm through the meaty part of my left hand. I...

Laser!

Spend $25 or so for a laser boresight. Will save you a LOT of time, effort and ammo. You should have it almost dialed in with the boresight before you get to the range.

If you use the muzzle...

Ain't that the truth!!!

Well said. One look at the splintered nature of Christianity is enough for me to avoid it and the other religions as well.

Agreed...

Too many unsavory groups hide behind the "militia" label, and by doing so, have given it a connotation far removed from the Minutemen of the Revolution. Because of this, the National Guard has to...

There are always auctions at Proxibid.com that may have suitable shotguns, and you'll pay fair market value this way, if not less. I watched one yesterday that had Hi-Point 9mm pistols going for...

I'm sure "these guys" can learn to use a compass and topo map if the need were to arise. But why not use the gizmos if they're available? They're fun to use, and can store data from multiple trips....

Imho...

The issue isn't the ammo, but the CLIPS that are required. These are hard to come by, and tend to be expensive. Look around to see if you can find those before you think about buying the rifle.

The usual...

For a quick trip to the store, it's the Taurus 850 CIA (.357, 2"); carry at 1 o'clock. For more serious situations, it's the M&P 40 in the small of the back.

I have one in .40 also. I like it just a bit better than the Glock 23 I used to have. A lot of folks don't like the .40, but it's the caliber for me!

Other options...

Look into the variations of the Savage Model 24. These are dual-purpose firearms, with both shotgun and rifle barrels, i.e., .22LR/.410. One firearm for 2 different types of hunting.
