I dunno... I like Angie's rifle... and she doesn't strike me as someone not being able to tow her own line.

So I wonder if we'll see you at the Bay Area Rifle Championship in August... 1200 rounds is no slouch.. that's a fair amount of firing.. over a case. I'd think with a good zero, I think you would put the hurt on a lot of competitors that day.

The only time I fired that many rounds was at a weekend training session with Jerry Miculek... 6 at a time..

What type of AR15 was this? I've fired over 1,200 rounds on the same bolt without an issue, only thing that wore out was the gas rings on the bolt which is like a 5$ set of little rings? The only thing i can think of is lack of lube on the contact points, receiver and the inside of the carrier bolt surfaces while the bolt rotates. Guys who run Carbine classes or Tactical Shooting classes keep them running wet. I suggest getting the USMC/US ARMY Manual on the M16 series of weapons, it really gives you alot of insight on how to maintain your and clean it. Ive learned alot from this book:

A pink AR would be screaming "hey look at me I'm a girl and they let me play with guns" (not that there's anything wrong with that) but would also stand out like a sore thumb. Women's Liberation would mean a female soldier being able to carry the same load/weight and weapons as a male soldier while being indistinguishable in performance since everyone wears green.

Regardless, I wasn't trying to bash your pink AR. Nice pics!! Looks like an excellent weapon with a few hiccups that nothing firing a couple more thousand rounds into it wouldn't fix.
I'm sorry SoCal - you're totally right I didn't mean to come across that way. I know there are girls in harms way, trying to be respected equally with men...and here I am being girly and stupid! When I thought about it, a pink rifle would probably make anybody too visible and that would be dangerous. I hope I didn't offend her.

He said he's not sure. He thought the bolt was cracked while we were at the range but he emailed me and said it looks OK - he just cleaned up a lot of buildup on it. It misfeeds when we shoot it. He's going to take it to the range on Monday and testfire it and will let me know.

1. Double tap mags make sure it gets a good seat in the chamber.

2. On top of the Bolt carrier is something called the " Gas Key " if that comes loose after 1,200 rounds this will cause the rifle not to properly cycle. Alot of builders of AR15's dont stake it down properly so when it comes loose it causes a ALOT of issues with the rifles.

Improper

If those screws come loose under alot of firing it will cause alot of issues, something to just check up on to ensure its not that. Mine came loose and was moving around, i had founds double feeding and alot jams.

3. Check the hammer to make sure its not riding the bolt carrier

This is the reason why we should share the gun culture with the fairer gender... (And I will leave it at that...)

Just for your information, Bump firing is legal. The shooter is still firing a semi automatic weapon. Either these guys had FA's or were running 30 rnd mags with a Bullet button, which makes the rifle an AW.
As for the bolt. 1200 rnds is alot to fire without cleaning or at least
re-lubing the bolt and rings. CLP or graphite works very well. Hope you get her fixed soon. Go for a chrome bolt if you can find one.
By the way, You really are too cute to shoot.
Want to go fishing sometime?






Just kidding, I'm twice your age. But I have lots of friends. Nothing wrong with making another.

Glad to see you enjoy the sport! J.

LOL.... 2 points Bryan. But most likely, Unless 2cute is over 24...
I don't really want to ask her how young she really is... She's just too cute and those shorts are totally disarming.
I'd lay down my guns for a lady like her. But NOTHING else. I hope the man she falls for isn't a jerk. She seems so much more deserving.

We were on in Nevada when this happened, so I don't know what their laws are over their. We could hear them 'bump firing' and it sure sounded like a lot of bullets - more than 10 anyway! They said the rangers told them they had machine guns since they were getting lots of shots for one 'manual pull' of the trigger?

Anyway, I was trying to count in my head how many rounds went thru my AR over the weekend. I think about 500 of my bullets, plus my cousins, so actually probably only about 700 or maybe 800. At one point my uncle lubed all the guns we we were shooting, but we never cleaned! Mine worked fine until it started jamming over and over again. My uncle now thinks the bolt looks ok...maybe some loose parts in it. So he cleaned it and will testfire it on Monday. I hope it will be OK!

And don't worry Diginit. I didn't think anything. Are we going out on your yacht? I love shooting but I don't know about fishing.

I think that should be standard equipment for us girls on Calguns: a rilfe slung over one shoulder and a sidearm on our hip
Hi Steyrlp! I think the AR is the perfect gun for girls. I know a lot of girls don't like pistol shooting...at least to start out on, because of the kick. And they don't like a lot of rifles because of the kick and the weight. The AR is so light. Also, it's got some kick, so you get that thrill and feel power, but it's not at all scary

Yeah, I shot the AR in .223 to qualify for my Garand. I understand the weight, which is something you eventually get used to. Try to run around with a Garand some time (hee-hee)

But being a girl, it's the cleaning - lol That's why I stick to shooting my 1911. Less to break down and fiddle with

I actually would like to work with my 870 more... probably when the pistol match season slows down in a few months.

Tell your uncle to work faster on testing out your rilfe, so you can get back out there -- have fun!

Was that out in Verdi? I'm in Reno right now and I'm trying to figure out where there's a shooting area that borders the state lines and can't think of it.

I agree! Cleaning my 1911 is easy. But I think we girls are more detail oriented than guys. I don't know how to clean my AR yet, but I'm excited to learn. I think girls do a better job getting things clean than guys & I think I'm going to like it

Even so, when I met my husband, I asked that all important interview question: "Sweetie, will you clean my guns?"

Although we gals know our stuff, it's still a nice treat to be able to shoot matches, knowing that he'll be there to help me keep all my stuff spic and span. Like fishing... I can manage, but it's still nice when he asks if I'd like him to tie my lures on.

If it weren't for my Sweet Pea, I wouldn't have all these nationals titles to use for wallpaper - lol

I like cleaning guns and other mechanical things. It's a lot less tedious than cleaning up someone's computer from all the malware etc and a closet/bedroom. There's something therapeutic about dismantling something then putting it back together, and it still working.

P.S. I'm a guy!

In general girls might be better cleaning and more detail oriented but not when it comes to a man and his firearms.I spend hours cleaning mine,every nook and cranny.

Tacom, you guys may be better at cleaning off computers, but only because you have experience from all those nasty sites you guys go to Trust me, I know... my brother has forgotten to clear his history a few times

And you might also be right about taking apart and putting back together. I don't think I know any girls who like doing that...but for some reason, boys love it

Thank you Seesm! I don't want special treatment here...or any place for that matter! If I can't get something with my abilities and because of who I am, then I shouldn't have it! But thanks for making an exception to be friendly to me

And regarding my eyes...I'm a fast blinker!

Forgive me I did not mean an exception... Just if you look at someone asking questions (a guy) he will get bashed a bit sometimes on here. But then look at a (girl) asking the same stuff she will not get bashed but maybe 5-10 pages of help.

I LOVE ladies young and old as much as anyone and I feel they should be treated the same. And I hate to see anyone pick on anyone girl or guy... Btw warts if properly displayed can be fashionable...

Don't worry about me...I DO NOT want a Garand of my own. I can shoot it lying down, and it is fun, but I still don't like the kick. I always end up putting my other hand in between the stock and my shoulder, because it hits my bone when it fires Sometimes I'll use a towel between my shoulder and the gun to make it more comfortable if I'm going to fire a lot of rounds. Also, it's too heavy for me to carry and shoot while standing. I just like it better than the Mosin because that's a commie gun (according to my dad) and I think the Mosin is even heavier! There is just so much American heritage in that gun that I always fire one when I get the chance...and I think of my great grandfather, fighting in Korea

But for me personally, I'll stick to my nice AR which I am deadly with

Yikes. Someone younger than me that can shoot better than me with a rifle and is interested in law enforcement?

Looks like I have some competition

I'm surprised that no one has pointed this out yet (they probably don't want to hurt the little lady's feelings), but that is not a Garand.

Why doesn't he just use private browsing in firefox with noscript+adblocker plug-ins or incognito in chrome! It would save both of you time and probably some awkward moments.

Anyway, my friend tells me I like putting things together because it's the closest guys can get to giving birth. I don't have a problem with that theory especially since it doesn't involve pain.

PS
I think it's an m14 in the picture, but I have little to no knowledge of much.

That doth looketh like an M-14/M1A indeed.

If only there were more girls like you. {Seeing that I am in the same age bracket}.

No doth etc etc Shakespeare language please! One semester of the bard, as an English major, was more than enough for me.

A 1911 and an AR shooting girl around 280? WOW. I think I found a new range partner lol. Los Altos and Sunnyvale are suppose to be the two coolest ranges on our side of the bay.

As much as I appreciate that you like heavy metal rifles, what I love more is that it looks like you dragged a light floral print duvet out to the desert to use as a shooting mat. LOL
