Re: Where to buy Black Powder?

Track of the Wolf just west of Elk River off Hwy 10 has it too. They specialize in black powder firearms.

Re: I'm back.....swagger tool: Stand Alone? Or Die?

I used an RCBS pocket swager for several years with good results. I also use a handheld crimp remover when a piece of brass sneaks by. Not long ago I set up an old C press with a pocket swager and it works well too. Maybe we'll enough that it will replace the RCBS as my primary tool. I'll keep the R...

MEC 9000 20 ga

I have an extra, brand new, unopened box 20 ga MEC 9000 on hand. I doubt anyone wants to see pictures of the box but one can see the press and whatever accessories come with at the MEC website. Asking $350/ or make reasonable offer (new they seem to run in the high $500 range) or will possibly trade...

Re: Wolf or Coyote?

Dead ringer for the male coyote I shot in the backyard a year ago. He and his girlfriend thought they would serenade us but I didn't like the tune. He was a little over 40# and colored just like that one. Probably related someplace as the picture and the one I shot were about 7 miles apart. The wolv...

Re: Shooters World Powder?

Shooter's World powders are made by Explosia of the Czech Republic who sells in the European market under the name Lovex. At least that is what is stated in the Shooter's World website in at least the loading data section. There is also a cross reference shown between the the "American" de...

Re: Permit to transfer?

Thanks for the clarification. The question went up the management chain to the corporate compliance/legal staff and what I posted was their explanation to us. I'll look at the statutes and bring copies in to see if there was some confusion or a breakdown in communication along the way. It appears wh...

Re: Permit to transfer?

As it was explained to me, that portion is meant for transfers between FFLs or from private party to an FFL for purchases. I can't state that unreservedly but that is what came down to us from those most high when such forms began to show up at the store in place of the more usual permit to purchase...

Re: Forster 6mm BR Full Length Resizing Die Pissing Me Off

Try contacting whomever your wife bought the pot from and see if they can get a copy of the receipt. If a credit or debit card was used, the seller should be able to back track to the original purchase using the credit card number. If your wife forgot where she bought it, the card company or bank sh...

Re: Historic Spike In Gun Sales After The Coronavirus Hit

I like how the article describes the current gun buyers as "preppers". My experience over the last month has been far from that. There have been a very small percentage who claimed they weren't buying a firearm through fear of a societal breakdown but were buying as they were afraid the pr...

Re: Winchester 94 32 Spec. Rate of Twist? Issues with it?

The rate of twist should be 1:16". Some individual barrels may be slightly faster, some a little slower as the machines used for rifling barrels would need occasional adjustment. Some of the reports of "burned out" barrels are the result of the early corrosive primers and the rather h...

Re: BREAKING: Trump Administration reopens closed Gun Ranges

Some one needs to let NICS know. Was in small gun shop yesterday and asked how the NICS was doing. The response was "delayed." They went on to explain that as soon as the call goes through, the response from the NICS is: delayed; not taking any info at this time. Did buy their last 8 lbs ...

Re: LGS observation.

What manufacturer would start a serial number with DFL? One from out of state. Like so much similar silliness, DFL is uniquely Minnesotan. This^. The gun manufacturer is not based, headquartered, nor imported through/in Minnesota so the letters "DFL" would have no meaning to the vast majo...

Re: Sheriff Sells Out Public, Says 'Buying Guns Is a Bad Idea'

The sheriff is merely an elected official. He is mouthing the words and beliefs of the voters who put him in office. It does sound like he is not a very politically astute person, at least not if he wants to be re-elected.

Re: Rock island Armory VR80 shotgun

Sold 2 of the VR60 the last week or so. An awful lot of plastic making the gun very light and cheap feeling. They had been sitting around for over 2 years before the insanity. That they had been put on clearance for a month and still did not sell spoke loudly to me. The two I sold were bought by peo...

Re: LGS observation.

The shop must have gotten a shipment of ARs in as at my store everything that even remotely looked like an AR went- even the chassis style rifles. Most of the shotguns were gone on Friday, all that was left were the higher priced Browning, Benelli, and Beretta semi-auto field guns and the Stoeger do...
