I am going with a rifle with a big ass scope on it. Most likely something more expensive then the Walmart variety tasco's.

100 bucks well spent. Should have got the double rail because I think I want a cheap/simple laser as well.

Off the grid, what kind of rail mount is that? Do you think it would work on a Mossberg 590A1? I've only got about 1/4 inch of mag tube at the end.

Rail here. 25 bucks off Ebay. Not sure about the mossberg, most 870 vs 500/550 stuff is not compatible. (although why would a 12g tube be different?)

The rail is reversible I tested it so if you are using a different foregrip you can mount it forward, but it protrudes out and looks to be more susceptible to breakage.

2 thumbs up on the Surefire setup. For a 40 dollar/65 lumen light...money well spent.

There are all kinds of scopes, red-dots and mounts that work on an AR with a carrying handle, both in the 'standard' position and also more forward scout mountings. If a scope is mounted directly above the handle you lose your stock-weld, although with a light recoiling AR it isn't a huge big deal. Or you can simply either buy a flat-top upper, or have yours machined by a competent gunsmith to make it a flat-top with a Picatinny rail.

Welp it was as cold as an ice witch's tit today but I had to go to the range to break in that 22/45 some more.

I love it! I feel like the thing is actually grouping, which is more than I can say of my performance with the 9mm I used to have.

One question though. I feel like it is shooting a little to the right. However, I'm not going to mess around with the sites because I figure I am probably pulling to the right when I squeeze the trigger. Opinions on a situation like this? Do I need to get a sandbag or something?

The main problem with mounting a scope on the carry handle is that it's WAY up high. To get a proper cheek weld you will need to add some type of riser to the stock to get your head high enough. The other problem is parallax since the optic's sight plane is so far from the bore axis.

If you have the tools, you could swap the upper receiver with a flat-top and reuse your barrel and other parts ($100). Otherwise you could sell the upper or buy another upper ($500). Only guy's who use A1 & A2 (carry handle) uppers are those looking for retro builds. The A3 and A4 (M4 cuts) are more practical if you want optics.

Sounds like a good way to find out, or have an experienced shooter put some mags through it to find out if it does the same to them.

If the range lets you hang your own paper there are targets you can buy that tell you what you're doing wrong based on where your shots are landing.

Anyone else having trouble opening this thread? It takes 15-20 seconds to open vs. instantly for all others on ADV.

After doing a bunch of reading I'm gonna get the LCP. Christmas money will do it.

I've been looking at some of the gun-specific forums and I think I'll have to stop. The amount of tinkering and modifying that people do to the 10/22 and MKIII is dizzying. I think I'm going to have to try to not to do any of it lest I fall in too deep...

Get a partner and do some ball & dummy drills. This will tell you if you are pulling the trigger straight, flinching or doing some other error. What you do is have the partner load the gun, or cock it on an empty chamber while you look away. He hands the gun to you, and you shoot (or not). When you get a dummy, you will instantly see the gun move if you are doing something wrong. If you are doing everything right, the gun will remain still in your hand (then you need to adjust your sights to move the group). If you see the gun twitch right or left, you need to practice your trigger press to get it straight back, and be sure that the pad of your finger is doing the pressing. If the gun jerks down, you are anticipating the recoil and flinching a bit. Ball and dummy is an invaluable technique that will help you throughout your shooting career to remain consistent.

How far to the right and from what distance? Since you're shooting a mild recoiling caliber like the 22lr I'd say there's a real good chance you just need to adjust your sights. Take your time and concentrate on the basics for every shot; breathing, sight alignment, focus on front sight, don't anticipate the shot
