I love the fact that you are just ripping full auto in your own garage like 'meh, no biggie'. What are the caliber limits of that clearing barrel thing?

Asked about his trap on another thread - Savage Range Systems. I believe it's the GT Tabletop Gunsmith - limited to 4100 ft lbs muzzle energy (= anything below about .300 RUM). I want one but have been putting off until the new calendar year. $2305 but probably pushing $3k by the time you add tax/shipping.

Y'all know I have a birthday coming up soon?

300win mag is about the most you want to shoot in it. It's a life saver for working on stuff especially caliber changes and machine guns where you need to figure out buffer weights and recoil spring rates. It's also nice here in the NW where it rains every day.

The one thing I hate the most about gun-plumbing is test firing. I live in a suburban neighborhood. Every time I build a gun, Ive got to get packed up and head to my range. Its only a 20 minute drive, but it SUCKS when something doesnt work and you gotta pack it all up and go home after firing (or attempting) 1 round. There have been many nights where Ive been tempted to just shoot into a pillow backed up by several phone books, but....well....something always tells me that may not be the brightest idea.

It is VERY quiet and I wish I had one like it. He designed it himself and it is a work of art and am hoping he shares the design with me so I can make one for my shop. I have seen various units over the years but we should probably move this to a new thread so as we don't muddy up Greg's thread for his build.

I have a 50yd range behind my workshop. I still want to build a bullet bunker style trap for test firing and such. I have about a 20ft dead end hallway attached to the shop that will someday be my indoor test fire range. Just need a bunch of thick AR500 and used conveyor belts.

Yes I would have liked to get one of the larger units but I am really limited on space here. This one has paid for itself in 3years for what I've saved in time and fuel. I'l probably get a bigger one when I get the shop built in AZ and move the Business there.

My GT table top is quit enough that I don't need ear protection but my wife can hear the noise in the house 25' away.

Have you ever met a woman that didn't say we were too loud when we are doing projects?

HaHa no ****. She didn't complain, I asked to see what the neighbor might be hearing. She said it wasn't loud but she could hear me :whistle: Now when I used to shoot the cannon off and it shook the windows and knock her little pretty things off and broke them on the floor.🤬🤬
