Re: Old .30-06 I need a safety check by gunsmith

As far as shooting goes, it would be a single shot that you could work the action straight pull style. Its just there may be some other things wrong- like the firing pin getting stuck due to gunk- slamfires in a .30-06 might be ugly. If you don't feel confident in disassembly, cleaning, and reassemb...

Re: Old .30-06 I need a safety check by gunsmith

If it was poorly stored, I would agree that you need a gunsmith to check it over. Not that headspace would go, but rather to make sure the gas port is open, that the gas system works right, etc. There might have been corrosive ammo fired in it, and you may find a mess in the gas system. If there is ...

Re: Electronic powder measure suggestions wanted

I have an older powdermaster and a newer chargemaster. I think they are good enough, but they are slow. The Powdermaster is slower and tends to be picky about set up. They both will fairly often dispense 0.1gr too much. A friend (since left the state and gave up reloading) had a lyman that worked pr...

Nonsense, everything has a price. You need to be billing someone for your hourly wage, unless you are some kind of sucker.


Yeah but the cheap SOB’s at .gov refuse to pay the bill!

Re: Reloading in 2020

A lot depends on what you are shooting as well. Try pricing more unusual rounds (like the .50 BMG or some of the african ammo) and in quantity. As to the better shooting ammo- you can find whatever you want out there on the market, but sometimes to get what you want it becomes so prohibitively expen...

Re: Altor Pistol

So, are you going to buy one to see how well it matches up with the hype?

Re: Reloading in 2020

Like others, I reload quite a bit. Started in middle school with my dad, and have been at it to some extent ever since. I think its over 70 calibers and gauges total. Some common like 9mm or .223, to the wildcats to large bore hunting ammo. My first rounds were shotshells on an old MEC 600 jr that I...

Re: November 2020 dilemma

I don’t care for Trump’s personality at all. Never watched any of that apprentice crap. He’s tacky, rude, and crude. He tends to excessively exaggerate and comes across as very lowbrow. The lying thing- he does not do well with politicospeak. He breaks the unwritten rules that the press and politica...

Re: 380 reloading

I have done that. It was a little touchy on what OAL it liked. Basically, I had lots of zero 9mm 115 gr JHP, so I used them with a load out of Lyman. Shot well enough in what I tried them in - Beretta 84 Colt mustang SIG P230 I don’t recall poi being too out of whack. Just be careful about too short...

Re: Are cheaps**t laser sights worth it?

Let me put it a bit differently. I’m not condemning you at all. We all have choices and conditions. I’d just shoot several boxes of ammo thru it and know what it does before using it for self defense. Seems like you have started since you know that it’s useless except at the sighted in distance for ...

Re: Are cheaps**t laser sights worth it?

The more offset from the bore, the bigger angle to sight it in at close distance. If you zero it at short distance, minimal changes in range will make big difference in point of impact. As to if it’s worth it... as a range toy you have little in it, so sure. If you intend it for social purposes, the...

Re: KCMO files gun safety lawsuit with Everytown Law

How so?

If the facts are accurate, then the guy was a pretty odd case involving deliberate malfeasance.

If not, the countersuit will make the guy rich.

In any case, this has no real applicability to manufacturers as a whole, as long as they follow the law.

Re: KCMO files gun safety lawsuit with Everytown Law

I don’t get the lawsuit.

He should be criminally charged.

KC MO is trying to get money from Jimenez and this idiot?

How much are they going to get? $1.50 and a pack of bubble gum?

The legal fees will eat up every dime of compensation if this is remotely accurately described.

Re: NJ gave Texas church gunman plea deal that wiped out felony

If he was adjudicated as unfit to stand trial, he was adjudicated as mentally ill.

Therefore he should not have been able to own a gun.

The question is, did NJ put this info into the NICS background system (I doubt it...)

Enforce the laws we already have before inventing new ones...
