    S&W 317 Kit Gun Initial Review

    Hey guys, as you might have seen, I recently gave up my Ruger MkIV. It wasn't terrible, it just wasn't what I was looking for, and it was the last in a long string of Rugers that just weren't right from the factory. What I was really looking for was a kit gun, a light weight 22lr pistol that I could ALWAYS have, or store in a bob without worry. An Emergency hunting pistol. So, it has to be small and light, because my G17 that I carry every day weighs 35oz loaded with 18 rnds of 9mm, so anything over 25oz doesn't make much sense... really anything over 20oz, for what I want. It really came down to the S&W 317 kit gun... and about nothing else. 12oz, aluminum and stainless, 8 shots, it looked like a win win, except about 3/4 of the people online hated it... weird. So far my initial impressions of this pistol are really, really good. Hopefully it will put some meat on the table this fall. I can't help but feel like a lot of the complaints about the pistol online are from people who don't have something figured out, but tbh, all of the bores in my cylinder aren't exactly the same size, and we all know that S&W's qc is nothing like it used to be, so maybe they did screw quite a few of these up. Anyways, here is the video of about 400-500 rounds going down the pipe, I have come to already love this little pistol, and I forsee shooting it tens of thousands of times before summer comes. Ill try to keep this thread updated as that experience progresses!

    Oh for some reason i thought you were running carbine gas.... You know what, i should just get my barrel hacked, but i also want to get it turned down, at which point i might as well just get another barrel.

    I have considered the pistol route, but idk if i would really want to go much shorter than 14.5 anyways. Maybe 14.5 with a 1" break instead of 1.5"... But man... someday, someday.

    Great Googly Moogly its beautiful... What are the terminal ballistics like? Or what do you think they are like? Have you reached out with it? That barrel looks nice and light too. Its perfect. 😄

    It would also be cool as an 11.5" fire breather, but idk if that would be worth it with the 308

    I would like to go with a new light weight barrel for my gii, and I believe I talked to Faxon already and they said they would do it. Its a $ problem tbh, even for that. With that being said... The Double Star upper and lower are TANKY! They look wild! Maybe Ill try to upload a picture. But they are heavy. A light weight 14.5" barrel (probably also from faxon) and a double star cqb UL buttstock assembly would make a TINY package with a little reflex sight.... it would have all the pew. The thought makes my heart have all those butterflys that girls talk about.

    Im not adding to the stable, just fantasizing, and hoping that you guys would help me fight these urges lololol The thing is, Double Star is local, I am going to work with them on some of their knife stuff for reviewing, and I would like to do a shop tour for them, and maybe launch some lead with them. I would sure like to own some of their pew pew stuff, because I think they are a cool bunch of guys. But I have to crack the code on actually making money before I spend any, so for the time being, yeah, I am downsizing everything accept the homestead. Less guns, less knives, more plants, animals, and fruit trees. lol Im betting against the crowns longevity at this point. Or at least the crowns ability to keep the status quo.

    I know a lot of you guys probably have them, and some manufactures offer them as standard options, but who here has the coolest 14.5" 308, and how do they run? Every time I talk to the double star guys their ar308 set calls my name. Not that my wallet can answer, but a man can dream. lol Is the energy lost worth the drop in weight/ length?

    History's Alone S5

    Hey guys, idk if yall are into Hisory Channels Alone survival series, but its near and dear to my heart, and I know a lot of the people involved. Admittedly, its been awhile though since I have watched. This year will be different! Season 5 is for contestant from previous seasons, and it aired last night. Holy cow. So many familiar faces, and I guess at this point I should leave it teaser free? I figured if anyone was into the show and watching we could talk about it here. So far, episode 1 of season 5 was the most gripping episode of Alone for me... ever. Wow. Ill have video links of discussions, Lord willing with Justin Vititoe from S2 soon!
