Firearms and Accessories / Help: ARCA or Pic rail on wood forend
« on: January 26, 2022, 12:44:17 PM »
Need some advice. I’d like to keep using my Caldwell bipod (for swivel studs) for my Savage Mark II TR, but attaching/detaching is a giant PITA.

Thoughts on mounting a Swiss ARCA rail to the wood forend? An 8” rail sticking out 2” from the end of the stock would be awesome. Does anyone have experience with this?

A Picatinny rail is another option, better than the studs but not as handy as the ARCA.

Recommendations for the rail and bipod adapter?

Thanks in advance.
Firearms and Accessories / 200 yard silhouette shooting
« on: October 19, 2021, 08:57:32 PM »
There's an opportunity to do 50-200 yard silhouette shooting at Koko Head. Who knows the guys who run the show? Carl on the Silhouette side and Mike overall, right? Anyone tight with the HMSSA guys? They'd be the perfect "sponsor" for this.

Posting this because I recently got to shoot out to 200 yards during the last Big Bore match (3rd Sundays) and it was so much fun. I expect one stipulation Mike and Carl would make is for someone to act as RO on that far end of the Silhouette range, since it's otherwise out of sight.

Are there any events on the Big Bore side on 1st and 2nd Sundays? I don't believe so, but who knows. I'd chip in for plates and hangers. Set 'em up before 8am and refresh paint during the occasional cease fire.

Where else can one shoot 200 yards on Oahu?
Firearms and Accessories / Savage Rascal beyond small kids

Hey all,

If you're sitting on an old Savage Rascal rifle because it's too small then check out this 3D printed stock extension, which makes the Rascal's LOP to "standard."

Just download the file and get it printed at Simply 3D Hawaii in Aiea. (

Pic: Rascal next to a Savage Mark II TR.

Now my kid can practice standing with a rifle. My Savage fits him OK on the bench, but it's too heavy for him to stand with for now.
Firearms and Accessories / OTF Knife consequences

Howdy. Does anyone know what the violation is for getting busted with an OTF knife? Felony? Misdemeanor?

Competition / Silhouette matches at Koko Head - 2021 info & invitation
« on: April 19, 2021, 01:42:41 PM »
I’m not seeing much info on HMSSA matches here so I thought I’d post the latest news.

There are 2 match types:
Small Bore: this is 22LR only using a rifle or a pistol. Pistols are typically single shot bolt action, rather than Buckmarks and the like.
Big Bore: this is pretty much any cartridge fired from a pistol. Can be a revolver or a single shot bolt action (like a Remington XP-100).

Small Bore matches are held on the 1st Sunday of the month and start at 9ish.
Per calendar: 5/2, 6/6, 7/4, 8/8, 9/5, 10/3, 11/7, 12/5

The small bore match info below is an edited copy from an old post by Teichi.

The Silhouette Range opens at 0800 if you want to get in some practice before the match. Cost is only $5 and it covers all day range fees, match fee and lunch (must compete to eat). When you register at the booth, declare that you will shoot the match and your fees are waived until match registration. All shooters and spectators are required to wear eye and hearing protection.

A total of 40 rounds must be fired. Range commands are electronic. The course of fire is in 4 stages. Each stage of fire is 10 shots per yard line, fired in two strings of five rounds, with 2 minutes to fire each string of 5.

Targets: 10 chickens at 25 yards, 10 pigs at 50 yards, 10 turkeys at 75 yards, and 10 rams at 100 yards. Swinging targets are set up for sighting in and practice.

All rifle shooting is shot from the unsupported standing position. Pistol shooting is done from the Creedmoor position or unsupported prone. Rifles are classified by “light” (under 8 lbs) and “heavy” (8 lbs and over) with or without optics. Match rifles are not really required. Any safe and reliable .22 that can hold 4” groups at 100 yards may be used. Shooters may enter more than one category, but must pay an additional $5 per gun.

Competitors are expected to help set up the targets unless you exhibit a serious medical condition. Lunch is provided, but potluck side dishes and snacks are welcome.
[thank you Teichi for most of that]

Big Bore matches are held on the 3rd Sunday of the month and start at 9ish.
Per calendar: 5/16, 6/20, 7/18, 8/22, 9/19, 10/17, 11/21, 12/19
Big bore proceeds the same as small bore. Register, pay fee, sight in/practice on swingers, shoot targets, reset targets, eat lunch.

Targets: 10 chickens at 50 yards, 10 pigs at 100 yards, 10 turkeys at 150 yards, and 10 rams at 200 yards.

Hope to you see you out there. Good times.
General Discussion / KHSC 200-yard frame specs?
« on: June 06, 2012, 01:29:59 PM »
Hi all. New member with a question that I promise I searched for first.

Does anyone have drawings to build a frame for the 200-yard position at the Koko Head rifle range? Failing that, a guide for diameter and spread of holes in the ground plus a recommended height would be good enough.

And if anyone has some tips for how to find the 200-yard holes that would be awesome because I have not gone out to 200 in a long time. Don't want to be chasing my tail out there with people waiting for me at the benches.

I need some help. Thanks.
