The "Improved" DIY Shoot and See Targets by Kirk Lawson In a prior...

Today I went with the old saying of "Use a scope worth as much or more as what gun cost".
I removed the TruGlo RD I had on my 9mm carbine after I did a complete teardown and cleaning thoroughly. I thought what if I really did use a scope I had that cost as much as what my carbine cost back in 2009 or thereabout.
Seems just about everyone has built one of these so figured I would too.
While somewhat limited, it's still a viable weapon especially as an emergency back up. Several can be built disassembled and stored sealed in large pvc pipe and buried. You just never know!
This one is roughed out, still need to fab the firing pin and buy the proper hardware to finish it out.
Has currently a 24" barrel. Wanted a bit closer pattern than the usual 18". Had a bunch ofleft over AR stuff to use on the build. It's quite comfortable to hold/aim/fire.
Was setting up to repurpose target loads to buckshot and round balls. Bought the necessary supplies but was having a hard time swallowing the 30 bucks for drill run crimper. Was looking around for something to make up when I came on a bag of hardwood toy car wheels I bought at Lowe's a few years back for a kids project. The inner detail ring fit the hull perfectly. Simply added a 1/4" screw as a mandrel. Made a block to hold the hull, chucked it in the drill press and spun away. The results were good. I spun all the spent hulls I had with the same results. The wheel shows little to no wear.
Don't know how long it will last but you get 4 wheels for less than 3 bucks. Just thought I would pass this along.
