R51 General Discussion / Comfortable shooting
« on: August 10, 2017, 02:28:53 AM »
I have read several posts about "Slide Rash" etc.   I am 82.  I cured this problem with a
pair of leather riding gloves.   These are thin leather gloves that I use for shooting and driving.
Worked for me.

R51 General Discussion / Gun Test magazine
« on: August 05, 2017, 09:23:46 AM »
I made a mistake and ordered "Gun Test"  magazine, and to my surprise, the first
Issue I received, (Aug 2017), had a review on the Remington R51. 
I have never read such a bunch of malarkey in my life.   I have read of problems on here
that we straightened out, but nothing compared to the crap that "Gun Test" put out.
It appears that the writers know nothing about firearms, nor their workings.
They claimed that the gun would not shoot any but one brand of ammo,
Overly bitched about the trigger, and magazines.   It is obvious they  never read
R51 General Discussion.  Needless to say, I wrote "Cancel" on my first
invoice.

General Discussion / Firearm safety
« on: June 28, 2017, 05:07:07 AM »
     I know I am going to get tons of flack over this, but it is what I believe, and I am entitled to
my opinion.   The proof of this lies right next door to the 2ND Amendment, which I
adhere to and believe in.

     People are dying because they do not understand firearms and what they can do
if you do not respect them.  They do not understand the difference between a real
gun and a toy gun. 

     I firmly believe that any person who is purchasing a firearm for the first time should
be trained in firearm safety.   And required to furnish proof of that upon purchase.

R51 General Discussion / Heavy clamps for taking down the R51
« on: May 09, 2017, 08:04:49 AM »
Guys/Gals,
     The clamp I have been using to hold the barrel on my R51,
 2 Pack Irwin 58100 Quick-Grip 1" Spring Clamp,
May have injured my wrist.  I got the smart ass idea of using the clamp for
exercising my grip..  As of today my wrist is swollen and sore as all gitout.
I am going to the ER tomorrow and find out WTF.   More to follow.
Just for info.
Learning to shoot left handed now.  Cannot even squeeze the trigger on my R51
right handed.

R51 General Discussion / R51 holster
« on: April 30, 2017, 09:23:13 AM »
     
     I went out and bought some cowhide the other day, after deciding to make my own
holster for my R51.  I do that for many of my guns.  They aren't the prettiest like
Bianchi and Triple K, but when I get done,  they work the way I want them to, or I
start over again.   My R51 stays in the holster upside down, and I know it will be
there when I need it.   Gives me something to do In my retirement years on
days I cannot shoot.
     Anybody else into leather work?

R51 General Discussion / Serpa Blackhawk Concealment holster.
« on: April 06, 2017, 06:27:34 AM »
     Hey gang,
This just came up on the Ruger forum.   Just passing it along, for what it is worth.
I will say, I had one, and it ruined the finish on my 1911.

Any reloaders out there,
     I had a technician that loaded my Super .38 offensive loads for me.  I never got the
specs from him for the loads.  Sadly, he was killed in a road accident. 
I have 8 loads left. They were the only JHP loads that would work in
my Super .38 1911.
Is there any way I could take those 8 loads and determine how they were set up and
loaded.  Bear in mind I have never reloaded anything more than cold bud,
so don't laugh guys/gals.

R51 General Discussion / Kirk's review of Aug 29, 2016.
« on: March 13, 2017, 05:38:58 AM »
Kirk,
     Just read, or "Found" your review of the R51.  By far, the best one I have read yet.
As we used to say in the Navy, "Bravo Zulu".

R51 General Discussion / Shooting dirty
« on: March 06, 2017, 04:25:59 AM »
     Has anybody else noticed how dirty the R51 shoots.  No matter what ammo I
put through mine,  When I drop the slide, the breech block is black!  No big deal,
but I just think it seems strange.  Maybe getting a lot of blowback?  Not having ever
shot an R51 or an M51 before, I have no clue.

R51 General Discussion / Remington saying no slide racking
« on: February 21, 2017, 06:48:44 AM »
Ok, Guys/Gals,  I give up.
     I can't remember which of you told me what the Remington tech
said about the R51 not being designed to be racked on a full magazine load.
I cannot find the post, or do not know where to look.
Any help for an old Coot?  :<}
