Re: Just poking fun at you 1911 guys

I'm all for good clean fun but he opens with several strong and completely false assertions... so I dismissed it as not true and not comedy.

I think his level of 1911 knowledge is somewhere in between nadler and schiff's Russia collusion knowledge. :waiting:

Re: Gov of TX issues mask order!?!

Every person in Texas shall wear a face covering over the nose and mouth when inside a commercial entity or other building or space open to the public, or when in an outdoor public space, wherever it is not feasible to maintain six feet of social distancing from another person not in the same house...

Re: So you want to buy a firearm during a pandemic

My breakfast buddies are reloaders and we were just talking about the ammo shortage, apparently 9mm bullets are even scarce. True, for the most part... if they are open to lead or lead coated, it's not too bad. You can still score some FMJ and JHP but you have to be willing to put in a few minutes ...

Re: Thermostat with adjustable cycle rate

If I had that problem, I'd partition off 1/2 the garage and A/C that for workshop stuff!

Re: TN: 88 yo female Liquor Store owner arrested for shooting one of two robbers

the guy who got shot told police he and his buddy were intoxicated on alcohol and cocaine and went into the store intending to steal liquor, only to change his story the next day.
Oh, that's allowed? Well then the lady should definitely change hers, as well!

Re: I was "assaulted" today.

I passed within about 3-4 ft of him. As I passed by him, he reached out and shoved me from behind on my right shoulder, and shouted You should have pulled down your mask for effect and said "you little..." cough cough cough "oh never mind - if you hadn't startled me, I wouldn't have coughed on you!...

some clarification

Bingo! The difference between a handload and a reload. I believe that I already stated that I segregate 9mm cases by headstamp according to case-wall thickness. The easiest die to set up is the resizing die and I use 2 different sizing dies for "normal" and thicker cases. Same with .45 ACP. That wa...

Re: And C and TAM - Update Please on Form 1 Suppressor Build

When filing a form 1 for a suppressor, you are a "maker". That entitles you to "make" exactly one suppressor. You cannot "repair" a suppressor you’ve built without having a Type 7 FFL with a Type 3 SOT. I do not. That is why I have NOT proceeded with milling and drilling the end cap I bought. Tam, ...

I'll Agree to disagree

They're essentially making new premium ammo. Handloads vs Reloads. For me, the sorting has become necessary because of the variations in brass due to all of the discount factory ammo where many shooters never pick up their brass. Well any of us with new brass are making "new" ammo- but the discussi...

Re: Opinion on gunsmith situation

I'd like to know who it is... especially since I have been researching smiths for machine work.

Edited after pics went up:

I'm disappointed for you. I can't imagine what a gut punch that must feel like. :cryin
