    cancelled at the behest of some overgrown hall monitor with 20,000+ one-line, emoji-bearing posts which say nothing at all.


    Gosh which FI could that possibly be?


    That Gogo guy certainly is entertaining. Writes well too.

    I shot the 516 again yesterday. Had a buddy that brought his 516 with stock trigger and ~ 3000 rounds through it.


    His trigger was WAY smoother than mine. I will say though that after about 100 rounds through mine a little of the gritty feel started smoothing out. Might get better with a couple thousand rounds through it like his did.


    None the less, if the G triggers go on sale this fall, I'll probably change out the 516 and 716.

    Was hoping you’d comment Gman


    So what trigger/s would you put in a Sig 516 and 716 patrol? Not going to compete with them.


    2 stage like South said? Flat trigger? 4 pound?


    There’s so many different ones. Point me at one plz

    He's going to get off with a DUI I think.

    "Brandt admitted to striking the pedestrian with his car because he had a political argument with the pedestrian and believed the pedestrian was calling people to come get him," the court document continues. "Brandt admitted to leaving the scene of the incident and returning shortly after where he called 911."


    A breathalyzer test later showed that Brandt’s blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit of 0.08.


    I read of a case long ago where the town bully had killed a guy's kid. The dad of the kid kept his mouth shut about it and waited a few months. He then went and parked a half a block up the street from the bully's favorite bar about an hour before closing time, sipping from a pint of whiskey. He got enough in him to feel the buzz. When the bully stepped out of the bar and into the one horse town main street, the dad chugged the rest of the bottle, splashing some on his shirt front. Then he nailed the accelerator and knocked the bully into the next astral plane.


    The cops knew why the dad did it. Revenge. As he had never said a peep about it and his BAC showed him legally drunk, the guy ended up with a DUI. They couldn't show premeditation. It was an accident. Payback's a bitch.

    Shannon Brandt, 41, is charged in Foster County with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death.


    Apparently he is being charged with murder according to the definition.

    Vehicular homicide is a type of crime the results in the death of a person that isn't the driver. Vehicular homicide always falls into the category of either criminal negligence or an intent of committing murder with the vehicle. Criminal negligence is classified as an action that was undertaken without cautious thought. It is often explained as when someone committed the crime without acting like an average person or with "normal" rational thoughts. Vehicular homicide is in no way different from a regular murder, the only characteristic being that a vehicle is used as the weapon.


    It is just AMAZING that this wasn't the lead MSM story for a week, isn't it. Nonetheless, pretty much everybody here understands that the lefties are the true threat and most have taken the appropriate action. Just don't leave it in the safe; won't do you any good there.

    OK, which one best fits my needs? I'll coyote hunt with the 516. The 716 would be for the most dangerous game animal.


    I'm leaning single stage. Don't see the advantage to the two stage as I won't be competing with either one.


    I'll shoot both on the range now and then trying out different ammo for group. Can't see either one for home defense. I have better options for that already.


    That's about it. Open to advice and education.

    First off, I'm not really into the ARs. I have a Sig 516 and a Sig 716 because I fell into a good deal. I haven't shot either one very much.


    I was at the range shooting the 516 for about 100 rounds. Shoots OK; I was trying various ammo that I have on hand. Some groups were nice other ammo not so good.


    Overall though, I was really unimpressed with the trigger. It's probably a combat trigger; heavy pull, kind of a gritty takeup too. Might smooth out in a 1000 pulls. I don't want to wait that long.


    So two questions. One, who makes a decent drop in trigger that will give me a smooth pull to a clean break? Two, is this a simple watch a YouTube drop in procedure? I'm familiar with firearms and how they work, so if it's a minor deal, I'm in.
