    trying to decide on an AR

    I realize opinions are like a--holes and I've done quite a bit of reading in this section trying to educate myself a bit. However, I'm still feeling pretty lost as I have ZERO experience with the AR platform and it's various configurations. It will be primarily a winter time carry rifle...

    77/22 trigger

    I've got a 77/22 with a trigger that's less than stellar. I see there are some replacement sear and spring packages out there for it and was wondering two things.

    Eye pro fogging

    I'm having a issue with my eye pro fogging up. I'm using the Oakley M frames and if I keep them close enough to my face to see under the top of the frame while shooting prone, the top of the lens fogs enough that they aren't usable. I can avoid this by raising the bipod height which of course...
