Re: WTB/WTT Small Rifle Primers

I have read that CCI 400 are the same as their small pistol magnum. You might want to confirm that with them.

Re: anyone still carry a 1911?

Yes, I still carry a 1911. Sometimes it is a full size all steel and but most of the time now, it is an aluminum frame commander. I do carry two extra magazines as well. I have high capacity 9 mm pistols and shoot them well but, given a choice, I prefer the 1911 in 45 ACP. I hear a lot about having ...

Re: Bedside Pistol - Springfield XDM Elite OSP????

Just a thought on the noise issue. When I took some training classes from a retired Houston PD SWAT Team Lead (23 years in SWAT), I asked about the noise from shooting. He said audio exclusion will protect my ears. I was not sure what to make of that until I watched a video series by Lt. Col. Grossm...

Re: Getting Started Reloading with Limited Space

Additional information to muddy the water. I started reloading for a 357 magnum in 1974 with the Lee kit that requires the use of a plastic hammer to drive the brass in and out of the dies (no press) and uses a powder scoop rather than weighing each charge on a scale. I was in college and broke and ...

Re: Protests - the next level?

This belongs to the local and state governments to deal with and they need to do that soon. One of the bright spots of these actions is that it may lead to a lot of folks that used to vote blue voting red out of fear for their safety. If that happens, post election all of this should be brought to a...

Re: AMMO. Buying, selling or nothing

After reading these posts last night, I looked around on line to see what is available. Primers (accept for large rifle match magnum) are not there at the reasonably priced vendors. Same with pistol bullets. However, pistol and rifle powder are abundant. Brass is easy to find at normal prices as are...

Re: US didn't need to drop the atomic bomb on Japan

Gen. LeMay was against the use of the atomic bombs. He wanted to bring over all of the bombers that were no longer in use in Europe and add them to the ones in the Pacific. He would then drop Napalm all over Japan (even more than he had been) and burn them to the ground until they surrendered. Many ...

Re: Federal Air Marshal Qualification: Test Your CCW Skills

Just placed the order for the targets and look forward to running the drill. My carry pistol now is an aluminum frame compact commander in 45 ACP. Should be a challenge with that pistol, especially the stage with the reloads.

Re: Massive explosion in Beiruit today

I worked for Monsanto 40 years ago at a plant that made ammonium nitrate. Most of it was used for fertilizer but some was sent to another facility to mix it with fuel oil to make ANFO explosives. Ammonium nitrate, on its own, will not explode. The explosion of the ship (loaded with ammonium nitrate ...

Re: Federal Air Marshal Qualification: Test Your CCW Skills

Charles,

The article stated that you could use USPSA targets if you don't have the required target and allows some "C" hits with that target. Apparently the "A" zone is tighter than the "bottle" on the specified target.

Re: What kind of bullet is the most used in the active shooting matches

What I am seeing at the IDPA and USPSA matches are a mixture of plated and coated bullets. I shoot plated in matches where I run a 9mm just because they smoke less that the coated (which are not a lot worse when using titegroup powder). I don't use cast with the lube groove any longer because they s...

Re: Just poking fun at you 1911 guys

Enough joking. Time to be serious. 1911s truly are heavy in comparison to Glock and SIG pistols. There's a reason why special gun belts exist for those who carry 1911s on a daily basis. http://fiberpi.com/texaschlforum/glock-sig-1911-weight.gif :biggrinjester: Not all 1911s are that heavy.

I am with the OP. Where does this stop. I can understand being a week or two over but this is anything but that. Today it is paper plates next year it is something a little worse and it just keeps sliding. We do all pay for this. Those that play by the rules pay for those that don't. When there are ...

Re: Thermostat with adjustable cycle rate

An inexpensive and easy solution is to get a dehumidifier. Cost a couple of hundred bucks and should do the trick. I have used one for years. Helps to keep the humidity down without keeping the temperature too low in the house. Also helps in the humid times of the year when it is not that hot and th...
