    If that scope was any longer, some members might complain.

    I got it down to a 1lb but slamming the bolt closed would cause the firing pin to drop. So kept adjusting it it up a 1/4lb until it didnt do it anymore

    If it were me, I don't slam bolts closed, but I would like a safety margin and to know that a jolt, bump or drop wouldn't case a ND.
     
  21. Me too, and I wouldn't want a 1lb trigger unless it was a dedicated benchrest gun. I was just curious as to the nature of his "slamming."

    dirty laundy in the shot. I mentioned something about this in the how not to be a noob thread in the archive. In the how not to be a noob on the internet post.

    When taking pictures of your guns think about composition a little. That means if your room is messy it doesn't show up in the shot. Also don't put the gun on the ground and take a picture and your toes or dirty socks are in the pic. Guys will hammer you for that stuff. So when taking pictures get a clean blanket drape it over your couch and put your gun on that and take a picture. I'm not much of a photographer but when I take pictures of my nice guns I try not to sabotage it by having my dirty laundry, unclipped toe nails, or lame junk in the shot.

    A black rifle against a black background is just genius.
