Shoot the heck out if it and enjoy! Range time is good for your soul - make a point to shoot it regularly. :fire

Re: New Gun Range is coming to Allen, TX

I hope the Allen range gets built... it's only about 15-20 minutes from my parents house, so I'd try it out when visiting. :fire Too bad FGC is that way... I would think a call to ClubCorp could carry a lot of weight. ;-) I was initially excited to learn that FGC was part of ClubCorp because I am a ...

Re: Take your kids to the range

Good times!!! Also a great reminder... I never think to take pics at the range. Those memories are captured only in my mind. I'll take some pics next time!

Thanks for sharing and the reminder!

Re: Which press is right for me question asked for the 100th time

You have it figured out- knowing your own likes/limitations is a key in doing it right. If I had the extra money at the time I would have tried the Gempro. I did a lot of research and talked to several people about digi scales. Without spending a TON of money, it's considered the to be among the ver...

Re: Which press is right for me question asked for the 100th time

I bought a RCBS rock chucker last night for $20 cash from Craigs list.. SCORE!! Nice find! As for scales- the reviews are always hit or miss in digitals. If I went digi it would be a Gempro- almost bought one several times. I went balance for now- with magnetic dampening it is just about as fast as...

Re: Instructor recert comment

They said that it was a possibility, especially if there were tips about instructors cutting corners. As many times as we've had posts about poor instructors over the years, I think it's a good idea... and I wish the undercover person would tell the instructor after class... so that word gets out t...

Re: BREAKING: P320 Recall Issued By Dallas Police | Prohibited From Duty Till Repaired

It sounded to me like you sign up for the recall and they will get back to you later. From an interview I heard, I am not sure if they are ready to receive pistols yet. I already signed up. We'll see. Correct, the message said they would get back in some number of weeks to initiate actual returns. ...

Re: Which press is right for me question asked for the 100th time

I had no help or mentor and was able to buy, set up and start loading on a dillion 550 with no trouble. If needed you can run it as a turret/multistation single stage as you learn the steps. I can't personally speak to loading bottleneck cartridges on it, but have read of lots of people loading prec...

Re: my first(of many) CZ

My comments were tongue in cheek! I'm not rich either, and saved up for the reloading press for a while. I now load .45 for about $7/box, $14 per 100 (some even cheaper) It took me about 6 months to pay off my press and tools. From that point I was shooting 4-5 times as much for the same price as al...

Re: Starter 1911 options

You might look at Springfield as well... they are about the best value in the under $1K, 1911 game, IMO. No offense to the Ruger but I think the Springfield is just a little more gun for the money. (ILS not withstanding)

Re: my first(of many) CZ

thanks bmwrdr, i have 1000 rounds of tula coming from sgammo, should be enough for the initial test run "rlol" Is that like a monthly recurring delivery plan? Or just enough to get by while you set up to reload? When I bought my STI, I went from about 200 rds./month to almost 1k rds./mont...

Re: Why You Should Always Check The Firearm

In the video, it looks like he cycles the slide before shooting himself. I guess he looked at an empty chamber and was satisfied...but if the slide doesn't lock back like it's supposed to...??? I think he tried to dry fire before and had to rack it to reset the trigger... He either didn't notice th...

Re: 2017 Special Session called

Some people want to use tax dollars to pay for private school because they don't like public schools. If they get that, I think it's only fair for me to get tax dollars for my private vehicle because I don't like public transportation. You have a simple view of an issue that's not so simple. My kid...
