Re: .45 ACP Dies

I have Lee, Hornady and Dillon in 45 ACP. I started with the Lee just after Obama got elected as that is all I could find. I had heard that they were low in cost and one got what they paid for (not true). I later bought a set of Hornady dies and loaded a big batch of ammo with both for testing. They...

Re: Nobody but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Philbo, I am sure that Alexandria will provide the opportunity for comments soon with her actions and the thread will get back on track. I think there is a great deal of frustration on the side of the conservatives because we watched the lawlessness of the left for 8 years under Obama and are really...

Re: .45ACP is still my choice for handgun caliber

I carry anything from a LCP 380 to 9mm in different sizes to a full size M&P or 1911 in 45 ACP depending on the situation. I will say that I prefer a full size 45 ACP. I have no personal experience in this but have talked with several big city SWAT team members that have had to shoot more than a few...

Re: 22 November, 1963

I was in third grade. I remember the announcement (my Dad was the principal at the school). School was dismissed early and we were all being sent home. Things seemed very strange that day after the announcement of the shooting. I like to listen to books on CD when I take long road trips. On a trip i...

Re: Button Rifle Barrels vs. Hammer Forged

I have a Colt 6920 as well. I have Timney trigger on it (4.5 lb), which was the first upgrade. I later added a Troy "D" rail to free float and to be able to add doodads to it (I really like the Troy rail and it is easy to install). I can't tell you that free floating the barrel improved things a lot...

Early Voting

Decided to go vote this morning. The line was the longest I have seen. Heard many others making the same statement while standing in line. Heard one person make the statement that they were voting because of what is at stake in this country/state. I hope the turnout continues to be strong and the co...

Re: Nominate a 357 target shooter

I have 0 revolvers, but I would like to remedy that condition. I want a target 357 shooter with an amazing trigger. Look for a Colt Python with a 4 or 6 inch barrel. I believe that they have the best factory trigger of any revolver. The first gun I ever bought was a 4 inch barrel Python. I paid $30...

Re: Nominate a 357 target shooter

I don't know if this fits your bill but you might want to take a look at the S&W R8 revolver (out of the custom shop). I have one of those and it is very accurate. 8 shot cylinder that is set up for moon clips, light rail, rail for a red dot, very nice trigger and a 5 inch barrel (that has always se...

Re: ANTHONY KENNEDY IS RETIRING!

Scott, I don't think it is done yet. I would let this play out and continue to fight. I think the Republicans need to move this on to the Senate floor for a vote before the elections so that everyone can see how the vote goes. That may affect the outcome of the election in a positive way for the cou...

Re: .22 cal LR not reliable for SD, is a .380?

I have never fired a shot in self defense but I have talked to several SWAT officers from big cities (Houston and Dallas) that have each shot more than a few people in the line of duty. They all shoot 45 ACP. I asked why with all the talk of 9mm being the death ray now and the common answer is that ...

Re: Pictures of your "Brown Guns"

NJ_Expat, Thank you for the reply and information. I doubt I would run hunting ammo through it. I have some old 30-06 brass around and Starline tells me that they will start making 30-06 brass soon. 308 ammo is less expensive and more common. Where did you get the information about boring out the ga...

Re: Pictures of your "Brown Guns"

Scott B.,

Would you get a 308 again (now that you have one) or would you go to a 30-06 for the next one. Reasons. I will only get one rifle (if I get that) and want to hear from those that have the 308.

Thanks

Re: Pictures of your "Brown Guns"

Scott B. How do you like having the Garand set up in .308? I will be traveling to the CMP in a couple of weeks to shoot in the IDPA National Championship. Will be my first time there and probably my last. I need an M1 like I need a hole in my head but have been thinking about getting one for some ti...

Re: One Couger .357 build coming eventually

Andy,

Does that price include a trigger job on the Ruger? I have a 70's vintage Security Six that needs a trigger job but don't know anyone that can do that. Sure would like to get it slicked up.
