  1. Who is still a fan of gun shows?

    Every one I have been to (at Rod & Gun clubs at least) featured every last FUDD that was a member. they would stand around clogging the aisles and mooning over a 60 year old shotgun that they would never shoot... Other than that, it is something to experience once or twice.
  2. What did you do in the reloading room recently?

    Finally figured out my .38 special problem with smoky rounds and unburned powder, I increased the crimp (right is before, left is after I increased the crimp); So I ran up a batch of 500 [cheers] I kept humming "silver and gold" from the old Rudolph the red nosed reindeer cartoon.......
  3. 2 teens in MA arrested after allegedly damaging 54 cars/businesses using air pellet gun

    Queue the "Pellet guns should require licenses" crowd on the left....... Always some ghetto wannabe that ruins it for all of the other people.

  5. Another Tragic Waste Of Ammunition

    I wonder what the insurance implications are? Hopefully it is a normal fire claim and not a 2A issue.

  7. Which HK in MA

    VP9 is my favorite for ergonomics reason. P30 is good but I don't like the trigger as much as the VP9. The SK is my carry choice (guess you can tell I'm an H&K Fan boy). Definitely an individual choice as everyone has different shaped hands and eyesight. I do know that I have gone to purchase a...
  8. Getting into reloading finally

    I started with a Lee single stage to get comfortable and to take my time until things were REALLY understood. Then I went the "buy once, cry once" route of a Dillon XL650 (now the 750). There are lots of accessories you need along the way. Primer pickup tubes Primer flip tray Micrometer Digital...

  10. How to securely erase data from hard drives

    Way back when I was a system admin at a hospital we would contract with Iron Mountain to come to our data center 2x times a year. They would send a grinder truck and we would carry out the crates of failed hard drives and they would shred them inside the truck while under video surveillance to...
  11. Projectile weights

    I just had a "My Cousin Vinny" flashback... LOL
  12. Odd results with 158gr LWSC .38 and Titegroup powder

    I have pretty much convinced myself that I need more crimp to get a tighter seal.
  13. Odd results with 158gr LWSC .38 and Titegroup powder

    That is exactly what my loads were doing. I believe the crimp needs to be increased to prevent the powder being blown past the bullet during ignition. Unfortunately, with the model bullet I have, the crimp is fairly limited due to the ridge running around the upper portion. I'll post some pics...
  14. Odd results with 158gr LWSC .38 and Titegroup powder

    Getting ready for a production run of .38 special and I have a decent amount of Titegroup available. Load data from Hodgdon shows 3.2gr - 3.8gr with a COL of 1.475. This is with LWSC 158gr bullets. These bullets (Falcon brand) have a ridge which is similar to a cannelure but stops the bullet...
