Re: Cast vs FMJ load data

I googled it for a few minutes just to see... man, 130gr fmj is an odd duck in 38 spl rounds! Generally, the charge weight for a lead projectile is less than it's FMJ counterpart so it's safe in the sense it won't blow you up. But some lead data is way low for fmj. I'd cross reference with 125gr fmj...

Re: Shield 45 dropping mags- fixed

My new Ruger LC9s (a few years ago) did the same thing - Ruger replaced the frame. Never did trust it again but that was just me. Normally I'm not tolerant of a gun that fails in any way but this is a crystal clear case of a follower design issue... the gun is fine. (with the modified or correct de...

update

I called S&W about it and as soon as I said Shield 45 was dropping mags, the guy asked how many mags I have... then asked for my address to send me all new ones. Spent 10 minutes on hold but only 60 seconds to get all new followers. I hope not to need customer service anymore but they are polite and...

Re: "Gritty" trigger on M&P 2.0 Compact

If you haven't- clean it. It could have been dirty or had some debris in their from the factory. I note smoother triggers on almost every gun after a good clean and lube.

Re: My Name is anygunanywhere....

My problem with alcohol was not that I had to drink every day. Mine was that once I started I could not stop. I started blacking out. I also threatened suicide. My cravings have been along the lines of when I end my work day I crave a drink or when we eat dinner out. Sharing our favorite wines was ...

Re: Talk with the kids

I've carried since long before I had a son... he never knew differently (if Dad has pants on, he has a gun on) so it was not a "new topic" to discuss. As he got older, I reinforced that my CC is hidden, just like my underwear- and we don't talk about underwear in public either. :lol: Here is a great...

Re: Can Beto O’Rourke really beat Ted Cruz?

I'm hoping for a dem on dem bloodbath, much worse than we saw with the Rep's. Maybe they will damage each other beyond repair. Of course, I wonder who bought the dem fix this time around????

The man was shot in the groin and they are going to file charges. That's ridiculous. I could see it if he shot someone else, but I think he has been penalized enough.

Well played, Sir! :lol:

Re: Shield 45 dropping mags- fixed

So, the one that the arrow is pointing to has the correct relief cut? I need to check my Shield 45 mags too. Thanks for the info. Joe Correct. Apparently it's close enough that some without the relief cuts still function fine. Take a mag and load 3 rounds into if... that puts the follower at the wi...

Shield 45 dropping mags- fixed

I bought a new Shield 45 a couple months ago, with hopes of making it my new EDC for discreet/dress days. Anyway, it shot well but was dropping mags midway through a string. :shock: I assumed it was either a bad mag release or lesser chance but still possible, that being a lefty, I was bumping the m...

Re: TX:7 year old girl murdered in Wallisville in drive by shooting or road rage

Now that we know what a white guy with blue eyes looks like, I wonder if Shiela "stupid" Jackson-Lee still wants this prosecuted as a hate crime? I wonder if the instagram tipster still gets the $100K reward if the actual murderer doesn't have blue eyes. I hope they pay- the tip got the real killer...

Re: Damage to vehicles because of your gun

I would suggest a seat cover- the good ones do well in the heat, with moisture and with abrasion. I do carry further back now than I used to in part due to the ergonomics of my truck seats. I also get in an out with a forward movement before sliding in to the seat- so that I sit and then slide back ...
