  1. 1st time powder coating cast bullets

    I just finished powder coating about 2500 9mm bullets. The 1st coat didn't seem to cover them very good, so I did 2 coats. I think that I should have used Eastwood powder instead of Harbor Freight powder. After 2 coats, I can still see some lead on every bullet, but they definitely have a layer...
  2. Wilson Combat YouTube Channel

    I may be late to the party, but I recently stumbled upon this awesome channel. The best part is that Massad Ayoob is in much of the content. I grew up reading all of his books and magazine articles. He will always be my self defense guru.
  3. .45 ACP AR PCC Who's built one?

    I'm shopping for a stripped upper receiver before they are an FFL Item. I want to build a .45 ACP top end. I've only seen barrels for sale, no mags or bolts. What is the recipe for a .45 ACP PCC?
  4. 2020 Walls of Steel Match

  5. Which agency turned in all these G17 Gen2 Glocks?

    I just picked one up today. Mine has plenty of holster wear, but is like new on the inside. I think that it has depleted tritium sights and the sn ends with us, but only on the metal sn tag. I'm looking forward to shooting it. I want to find out what all this Glock popularity is all about. I've...
  6. We Aren't Doing Ourselves Any Favors

    This is directed towards the entire gun industry, including consumers (you and me). I wish that manufacturers would give their products nice friendly names, like Just Right Carbine, or Ruger Security 6, ect. And less killy names that sound militaryish, or tacticool. It gives the anti's...
  7. NASCAR Going Anti 2A?

    I got an e-mail from Midsouth Shooters and one of the headlines was that NASCAR has adopted an anti 2A position. I couldn't open the story, and I am curious as hell about it.
  8. Damm Owl is Killing my Chickens

    I usually don't post in this department, but I figure you guys would have the best ideas. Last night my wife went out to lock up the birds for the night and walked into an active crime scene. Two of her best hens and our favorite duck were dead. A hen and the duck were dead in the coupe and we...
  9. Was at Lense Crafters today with the Wife and discovered that we were not welcome there.

    I had my S&W 642 and she had her Ruger LC9s and when we left the store I noticed this. I guess that we won't be going there again.

  12. CTE from shooting magnum rifles?

    Back around the year 2000, I built a 458 Win mag rifle on a Mauser action. I built it for cast bullet silhouette shooting. After i had that stuff figured out I began experimenting with jacketed bullets. I was shooting a lot of full power loads. I always left the range with a headache. I would...
  13. Going Green!

    Went green today! I've been on NES for over a year and was thinking about how much I have benefited from this great site. Not to mention how we all stick together when attacked by our own! Great site! John
  14. Accuracy With A Bipod

    Hey rifle shooters, I have a very accurate ar that I use for 3gun competition. I usually shoot in open division where bipods are allowed. My question is: how does accuracy using a bipod compare to shooting off of hard cover? Also all of my load development has been done using sandbags under both...
  15. Surprise!!! My wife just became an NRA life member!

    I get a text on my way home yesterday that she joined the NRA as a life member. This is really special because when we met back in 2014 she had just moved back here from Australia and before that she lived in DC for 25 years. Like most people who have never used a firearm before, she had a very...
