Re: Tuning a mag

Even a cough ,cough Glock might have to be retuned if dropped on feed lips. No magazine is indestructible, esp as he was tuning 3-5 thousands.

Re: Light weight summer shirts for concealed-carry

Duluth trading. At 6'4" 250 finding long enough is my problem. Duluth trading plumber extra long tails are great.
Even the big and tall shops are really just big after XL ,most shirts are just wider not any longer.
V neck or polo style are all I wear.

Re: Civilian Markmanship Program

Having paid $1000 for a like new 1943 M1 Garand ( new barrel,wood ect) :There is no way I would pay $850 for a pistol that the cmp states it has to be repaired to work.
M1 Garand built 5,468,772 WWII cost $85 dollars
M1911 2.7 million built. WWII cost $15

I do not understand CMP pricing

Civilian Markmanship Program

I guess we overwhelmed the CMP 1911 web site after receiving an email from cmp about having new information.
It seems to be down/offline.

Re: Got this shotgun for $69

The 158 receivers would also take rifle barrels. I have a 20 gauge and 30-30 barrel set.
The two digit receivers were shotgun only.

At 6'4" 250 finding a shirt too big is not my problem LOL.
Duluth trading is where I get most of my shirts, the extra 2" length plumbers shirt are wonderful.

Re: Left eye dominance

I am 60 years old left eye dominant right handed. I learned this when I was 11 years old. Shoot long guns left handed and pistols left eyed with a right hand grip. It's funny as I have never owned a left handed gun but have had many hot shells land in the crook of my elbow esp 22's.
