Recent range trip to get the red dot scope sorted out. Jilly came along for some shooting with the Ruger 10-22 and then with the JR Carbine.
She found the recoil substantial after shooting only .22LR. She also officially has a range membership now, so I’ll have to pick her up some proper gear.
I recently had a shake up in my gun cabinet. Old rifles were sold off (something I’m always reluctant to do) and a few new ones added.
I had long been interested in the Just Right Carbine, a Pistol Calibre Carbine that uses magazines from common handguns and can utilize AR15 furniture (stock, handguard, pistol grip and trigger group). In Canada it is classified as a non-restricted firearm and as such could be carried in the bush (unlike the AR15 itself).
The price tag on this side of the border is rather dear (with the usual import mark-up and the state of the Canadian dollar) with the basic carbine weighing in at about $1000 shipped to your door – and that’s before adding a means of aiming the carbine (optics or BUIS must be added to the flat top) or swapping out any of the furniture.
My initial impression was that it was a sharp little rifle, although I took an immediate and serious dislike to the standard “aluminum quad rail” handguard that ships with it – finding it uncomfortable and an asthetic train wreck (to each their own). That said as soon as I added a 4x armored scope to the thing we were off to the range.
