Reduced Velocity .44 Magnum Loads

My Browning M92 in .44 Magnum will not feed .44 Special loads properly. However, the rifle is so light that, with the curved metal buttplate, it is very unpleasant to shoot more than about 10 full-power magnum loads. Does anybody know of a source for reduced velocity .44 Magnum loads? I would go wit...

Holster Recommendations for the Taurus Spectruom

I need recommendations for an AIWB holster for the Taurus Spectrum and a pocket holster for the same pistol. I have a DeSantis SuperFly holster for the gun, but despite breaking it in properly, it still wants to come out of my jeans pockets about half the time when I draw. I think I'd like a leather...

Re: Smith and Wesson releases M&P EZ in 9mm

My first range session with my M&P EZ 9mm can be summed up in one word: boring--but in the good way. No failures to feed, fire, or eject with a total of 100 rds of three kinds of FMJ and one type of HP mixed up in two different magazines. Accuracy wasn't great, but good enough for self-defense. Reco...

Re: shield EZ 9mm- same holster as Shield 9mm?

Just received a Concealment Express holster for my S&W 9MM EZ. I'll let everybody know how it works out after I carry it for a couple of days (AIWB).

Re: Smith and Wesson releases M&P EZ in 9mm

Just picked mine up from GrabaGun. I’ll take it to the range tomorrow. It feels like it’s a few ounces heavier and the slide is slightly harder to rack, but it is new. It looks just like the 380 version and magazine looks the same as well. I’ll take it and my 380 EZ to range and shoot them side by ...

Re: shield EZ 9mm- same holster as Shield 9mm?

Can any of you that have the EZ 9mm and a regular shield 9mm check holster fit for me? I don't have a shield 9mm to compare holsters with. Not seeing specific options from many holster makers on the EZ 9mm. Thanks for any feedback :tiphat: /quote] flechero, I tried a DeSantis 9mm Shield holster for...

Re: How High to Place a Demand Feeder?

I haven't measured the height of the tubes on my commercial demand feeder, but I've got game camera pictures of a hog chewing down. Then, as noted elsewhere, you've got to deal with raccoons. They can clean out $200 worth of feed in short order. KLB, I've had a demand feeder on a T-post on another ...

Re: How High to Place a Demand Feeder?

Pigs can’traise their heads very high. I think 36 inches or so would be adequate. anygunanywhere, "Great minds run in the same channels," or something like that--that's about what I was thinking. It take a pretty big pig to go 36" at the shoulder and, as you say, they can't raise their heads very h...

How High to Place a Demand Feeder?

Not a gun-related issue, but I didn't know where else to put it-- I make my own demand feeders from PVC pipe and my question is this: how high off the ground should the feed opening be to keep feral hogs from getting the corn? Our Hill Country whitetails are not very big and I don't want the feed op...

Re: Effective Range of a .54 Cal Muzzleloader with Round Balls?

I've also got a Lyman GPR in .54 with a 1:60 twist for patched round ball. As far as effective killing range I don't know. As far as accuracy I think it would be good out past 100 yards with the right charge and the proper patch. I use .530 balls and a .010 patch for easy loading but if I want bett...

Re: Effective Range of a .54 Cal Muzzleloader with Round Balls?

Round balls? Why not just use Minié balls? Civil War confederate guerrilla sniper Jack Hinson made hits on union soldiers up to 1000 yards out, using a muzzle loading rifle custom built for that kind of shooting, loaded with Minié balls. Admittedly, he typically fired down onto troop transports fro...
