A quiet day in nature

I love Tennessee Autumn…mid-November with 70*F weather. The targets we set up in the woods get populated with lead and copper, but without our ears getting a beating. This rifle is one of five SU16s built by keltec in 300 … Continue reading

ATF Rule 41F cometh

Twelve times twelve

Another Coal Creek Saiga with a 12-round SGM magazine. I haven’t chronographed this gun, but other people’s data indicates drop of muzzle velocity from 1250fps to about 1000. Seems like a reasonable trade for the small length. Fans of longer … Continue reading

Keltec SU16D: a weapon for tight spots
