I had high hopes for this as well. I decided to give it a try and I bought a random stock at a gun show and cut up a wiimote in an attempt to make something Nintendo would never approve of. I built it right before the first shooter came out for that console (one of the CoD or MoH games back in 07 maybe? can't remember) but it turned out that the interface sucked sweaty monkey ***** even with the non-modified controller. It was so bad that I gave up and trashed the thing and traded the game. I wish I had pictures...

EO2K you might have better luck with the sony PS3 move since the controller is actually high quality/accuracy.

PS3 controller higher accuracy my ***.. I'll take the pepsi challenge against your controller with a rifle in my hands.


WTF a noob with a nice assortment of rifles!!




Went to the range today. Took 100 9mm reloads I pumped out through my cheap Lee progressive press. This was the very first batch I've turned out with this press and had 98 good rounds with 2 squibs. Actually put them in my case in the order I loaded them, and knew the first couple might have an issue because I hadn't tuned the powder measure yet. Thankfully I'm not a ******* idiot and didn't blow up my gun.

Shot the **** out of my new Glock 22, and all the 9mm went through my Keltec PF9. Shooting 12x12" steel plates at 50 yards with a double action only 2" barrel pistol is pretty good. Think I'm pretty confident in ability to hit something at 7 yards.

Got the ball on top to measure position. Inside the controller there are 3 gyros to measure rotation and sharp movements. Best as it gets to date.

4+ years ago mang, WAY before the Move came onto the market. It might be fun to try again, but I'd actually need to buy a Move + whatever game I wanted to try + another controller. Sounds like a lot of work. I'm sure some poor soul somewhere out there on the interwebs has made it work, so not much of a challenge at this point. I've got bigger projects to fry these days

Anyone know about a Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22? I've got a guy wanting to trade me one for my Yugo SKS and some cash. I'm really not using my SKS (since I got the new one) so I wouldn't mind trading it. I use my Ruger 10/22 all the time and it is a great gun but I was just curious as to anyone here firing the S&W.

Not convertible to .223/5.56 as its not a standard receiver.

As ARs chambered in .22long, they are supposed to be pretty cool, if you like the whole tacti-cool .22 thing. I've not fired one, but I've seen them for sale all over the place. I believe they are blow-back, not gas tube? Might want to look into that if it matters.

Yes, it is blow back. I would have never considered one but the guy contacted me and that got me thinking.

I've heard good things from owners of the S&W 15-22 but have never fired one myself. If you were considering an AR platform .22lr maybe check out the Mossberg Tactical .22.



Again, have heard great things but never fired one myself. They're typically $200.00 vs nearly $500 for the S&W..


I have two rifles which will fire .22lr, one is a Marlin Model 60 and the other is a CMMG drop in bolt conversion for an AR-15. The Marlin is capable of making multiple shots at 175 meters (never tried further) with fair accuracy. Placed some clay pigeons found at 175 meters on the berm and placed multiple rounds on each.

The CMMG firing .22lr through my .224 bull barrel on a fixed bench rest will also make 175+ meter shots but I've noticed they're all over the place. I can squeeze off one round and hit dead on target, the next without moving point of aim is 4 feet off to one side of the target. That would be the nature of firing a bulk rimfire .22lr round through a .224 barrel. Is it fun as **** to shoot? Hell Yes. Place that conversion in the colt and using iron sights standing I can hit a 12" steel plate at 150 meters no problem.

$200 sounds a hell of a lot better than $500. The guy who made the offer to me wanted my SKS and $70 (I was going to try to get an even trade). If I could spend $200 for a new rifle vs $70 + my rifle for a trade there would be no question what I would do.

Signed papers on one of these today at lunch. New in box, never been fired:



That's a Henry H001Y Lever Action .22 Youth Model.

Why? Because all I paid was the $25 DROS fee

It'll look good in the safe next to my Winchester 9422 & Browning BL-22

Nice!!

I loooove Lever guns. ib Pusha does too.. Have had my eye on a .45/70 Marlin for a while now..



Found a guy selling kydex iwb or pocket holsters for $30.00 shipped to fit keltec pistols and has a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Don't like anything about it he'll try and fix it or just refund your money. Think I might order one of these...



Ordered a supertuck for my Glock 22 yesterday.. Cause that's a small gun, right?



:shrug: I could CCW an AR15 carbine in the winter time, so why not?

I've never IWB carried but it seems like it would be so uncomfortable after just putting my P32 in my pocket. You don't even remember it is there.

I have a "cell phone holster" for IWB CCW and it's not uncomfortable in the least. Slip my PF9 in there and I forget about it, even in regular cut jeans.

This will give you an idea of what can fit in that holster




That's a 5" para 1911..

No... I wouldn't carry a 1911 in that holster, just to give you an idea of how much it can conceal something very large, even my G22 snugs away without hint. Something more minimalist as the kydex clip should be even better, and the supertuck you only have leather against your body.
