  1. 44 Mag 180 grain hollow cavity and 50 primed cases karma?

    I could sure use them. I am teaching women in Western MA to shoot, and not fear big bangs and a little recoil.... Unfortunately I didn't have stamps, so not green again just yet
  2. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Dies are starting to show up at MidwayUSA.......my 40 and 9mm dies arrived.....Still searching for small base 308
  3. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    That is true. The GP-11 is great from my rifle also
  4. Anyone have a Ruger Wrangler?

    Nice revolver. If you can afford it though, I'd still buy the Single Six. Wiegand makes a sweet scope/red dot base that mounts to the rear sight screw holes (no tapping). The adjustable sights and option for the base make the price difference money well spent
  5. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    AHA !!! I knew there had to be one!!! I never thought to search Facebook. Now I'll probably find them PITA Load development??? That's the really FUN PART !!! I load 7.5 X 55 Swiss. Send me the rifle and components. I'd enjoy doing the load development for you I buy new rifles in part...
  6. And now there's one less, Buttgiggles is out........of the race that is

    Huh I was really sure that having that 9 year old boy come out of the closet at the Butts-I-Judge rally would propel him to the presidency
  7. School me on Lever Actions (please?)

    Even the AR fans in this group have added them to their collection, not replaced firearms Lots of lever shooters here. There was recently a group buy on Henrys
  8. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    If you have a container of mixed powder from pulled/recycled rounds, or even small leftover amounts, making exploding targets is always something to use it up, a friend tells me Considering either a 45/70 or a .375 H&H for fun experiments like this. From the Sierra manual The H&H can go as...
  9. When do you OWN a gun?

    This is true. I have bought as a present a handgun online that was not on the MA roster. Had some work done on it. Then had the FFL ship it to an FFL in Alabama for my friend to take possession of it. I had to sell it to him for a nominal fee, as I was still the legal owner.
  10. When do you OWN a gun?

    Exactly I have never even been asked for payment or a deposit before the BG check went through, except when having the FFL place a special order The $50 charge is pure bull, and I would not set foot in there again Possibly stop by in a couple months to ask about their sales policy, and whether...
  11. Help me spend my money

    You think you would be reloading only to save money. Once you start, you will find that tuning a load to your rifle is really a lot of fun. Reloading makes a huge variety of bullets available that you can't find in factory ammo. You will be able to make your currently owned rifles much more...
  12. Ruger introduces their take on the FN Five-Seven

    Well, I managed to read through 5 pages of comments . . . . still have no idea why a 5.7
  13. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    How was the Hornady service? RCBS is fantastic. They will grind a stem specifically for the bullet you are using if they don't already have one
  14. Best EDC pocket pistol?

    I've carried my 442 every day since I bought it in 2008. On my 3rd cheap Blackhawk pocket holster - they work great for a few years, then get kind of floppy. The revolver shoots great, very accurate and durable and handles great The only thing I don't like -- the cylinder should swing out just...
  15. I use to like Ruger, now I'm beginning to hate them (yup, it's time to rant)

    Sorry, but I can't imagine this. I think what you need is a knife with a comfy padded handle Forget the LCR, the LCP, or any other subcompact or compact and shoot an appropriate defense round out of whatever pistol is heavy enough for you to handle the recoil -or- stay home -or- hire a...
