In this episode Bruce and Birdman discuss "What's that number mean?" and firearm terms/definitions; caliber, bore size, metric dimension, gauge size, reloading, and hand loading.

Full Video @ https://youtu.be/095Y_D7n_5g

 

 

The Point of Ammo

Caliber is the approximate diameter of the bbl

45 cal   .451/1000 of an inch

38 cal / .357

9mm developed in Europe, metric .355 diameter

 

44 mag  .429 dia

Gauge vs. Bore

Gauge is determined by weight in fractions of a pound of a solid sphere of lead with a dia equal to the inside dia off the bbl

1/12 # ball fits in a 12 gauge bbl so 12 gauge

 

Except 410 which is a bore size of .410 inches but it would have been a 67 gauge although was at one time called a 36 gauge

 

Safety, safety, and more when reloading

While the Get On Target show took a week off, the Ruger was sent back and was returned back on the 20th of July. The magazine button is stronger and the Ruger manufacturer repaired it at no charge. The Point of the Used Gun Score Sheet has now been updated to reflect the repaired Ruger SR-45.

In this episode Bruce and Birdman chat about the Ruger SR-45, Point of the USED gun. 

Full Video @ https://youtu.be/NSTQUJwb6sI

Many buyers are looking for value, but with this like new condition handgun, there's an issue. 

A few highlights/advantages to this Ruger are that you can change the rubber grip, it is a striker fire with no hammer that has a manual 1911 type of thumb safety giving it an advantage to be able to carry it in different ways, and holds 10 - 45 ACP rounds.

In the video you will see two different shots at the range. You will see the magazine fall out of the gun!

If this gun were working properly, the point of the used gun rating would be high, in good standing.

This specific piece will be sent to Ruger so they can inspect and fix the problem. 

We will do a follow up episode in a few weeks with the results. 

Stay tuned!

In this episode Bruce and Birdman chat about L.A.G. Tactical Review

Full Video @ https://youtu.be/_JkFNj2tZcQ

Check out the L.A.G. Tactical website @ http://www.lagtactical.com

Our Origins:

L.A.G. Tactical was formed by shooters, for shooters. We are avid gun enthusiasts with a passion for training, shooting, reloading, and all things gun related. Because we are hands on with firearms, we are always seeking products that meet our needs as shooters and help take our training and shooting skills to the next level.

Of course during all of our hours logged on the range, we had our own personal demands from our gear, specifically our holster set ups. It became very clear that holsters, just like firearms, are not a one-size-fits all kind of product. Each of our founders, and the people in their shooting group, had different needs and preferences from their range and concealed carry set ups. Custom holsters seemed a proper solution to this issue but we realized we were a bit too impatient for the extremely lengthy lead times often associated with custom holsters. And thus, L.A.G. Tactical was born.

Our Mission:

We operate with the absolute resolve to meet the individual needs of each customer and to provide a custom holster without the "custom holster wait time". We strive to make and deliver our products in a timely manner, with strict attention to detail.  

Due to the custom nature of our products, we work closely with our customers to ensure each product is made to their specifications to meet their individual needs. We refuse to accept anything less than the highest level of customer satisfaction.

A Quote We Live By:

"Strive for perfection in everything. Take the best that exists and make it better. If it doesn't exist, create it. Accept nothing nearly right or good enough." Sir Henry Royce, co-founder of Rolls Royce

In this episode Michael and Birdman chat about the DigiTrigger.  

Full Video @ https://youtu.be/QZA9OhtDCAI

Multiple Firing Modes:

The DigiTrigger has 2 firing mode options. There is standard digital mode which allows for a much lighter trigger pull. This will also allow you to fire much faster than the normal mil-spec trigger pull. There is also our Pull/Release Mode. This allows 1 shot per pull of the trigger and 1 shot per release.

Increase Rates of Fire:

Because the DigiTrigger has such a precise and light trigger pull it will allow you to rapid fire like you never have before. It will also not affect accuracy as much due to less trigger play. With our PR mode your gun will shoot at a higher rate of fire due to the pull and release functionality.

Compatibility Options:

Our trigger system is compatible across any mil-spec AR-15 lower. We have tested our product on all major AR systems. The most important requirements of your lower is the acceptance of a mil-spec trigger group AND removable trigger guard.
