Re: .357 Mag Powder

I was just testing .357 mag loads this past weekend. I had some accurate #9 sitting on the shelf and I wanted to use it up. I had plenty of odd brass and some Winchester magnum primers. I used the starting load, 11.2 grains under a Hornady 158 gr LSWC, according to loading data: http://www.accuratep...

Re: Real Issue or Sales Pitch?

I had an extractor failure once in a Glock 23. I am convinced it was ammunition induced.

I was at an indoor range shooting their reman ammo. One round blew out the extractor. The gunsmith on site put it back together. The gun ran fine with factory ammo.

Re: ‘Gun Jugging’ on the Rise in Houston

I wonder if Sgt. Tracy Hicks understands that businesses posting 30.06 signs are providing guns for the taking left behind in parked cars.

Re: Ethanol free

Wish we could get it in the Killeen/Ft Hood area. When I have used it in my Silverado, works great and gets better mileage than E-10 . Plenty of places have E-85, but no Ethanol Free. Tried the E-85 in my old Ford Ranger which was rated for "Flex" fuel. Mileage was about 25% less than E-10, not a g...

Hey, here's one how about National Socialist?
Nah, no one else would get the reference.
I like the ring of National Socialist Democratic American Party. We can call it N.S.D.A.P. for short.

Re: Custom 1911

I would caution against copper inlay on a steel gun. Copper + steel + electrolyte (sweat) = galvanic corrosion.

Re: Bloomberg

Mike Bloomberg and Hillary Clinton could not run on the same ticket, as they are from the same State and the Constitution (remember that?) prevents it. Two residents of the same State cannot be elected by the Electors as President and Vice-President. They have both missed the deadline to change res...

Re: Man removes window air conditioner at 1:30 am and gets shot in the back by the homeowner

I don't know enough of the facts to pass judgement here, but I do know that the homeowner should not be talking to the press. In particular, he should not have said this:
When he was trying to get away, that's when he got shot.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Maybe the Senate should wait 33 days to deliver the results of the vote to the House. Hopefully, that would delay the next impeachment.

Nancy Pelosi, most of the time, looks like she's busy reviewing her 2019 income tax paperwork. :shock:
I think she was searching President Trump’s speech for something impeachable.
