Re: RDS v. Iron Sights: Not just for old blind guys

I’m just shy of 60. Old to many of you and young to many others. Over the last year I went down the RMR path but have returned to regular iron sights. My issue isn’t my eyesight but hands that aren’t as strong or steady as they used to be. Seeing the red dot on the target jinking around makes me lo...

Re: 'Thunder Snub' BFR in .45-70

There is a long tradition of carrying one ammo, for both rifle and pistol, but, as you may well know, that tradition maxed out at 45 L.C. Ya'll have fun with that, and send videos, we would all love to see the before and after ER pictures, :mrgreen: Yep, and the .44-40 WCF. Still a great idea, and ...

Re: 'Thunder Snub' BFR in .45-70

As a handloader I can say that any handgun cartridge where the powder charge only occupies a small portion of the available powder space, is more novelty than anything else. With maybe the exceptions of 30,000 PSI .45 Colt loads and the .454 Casull, which I will never own personally, I just can't se...

Re: Accurate powder recall

Since this one is newer, I'll just post here. Western is certainly on top of this and is very adamant about replacing the powders. Rob Behr at Western even asked me to dispose of the AA 4350 they sent me just a couple of years back, and I thought it was unaffected and couldn't find the slightest pro...

Re: EDC knife

I just bought an OKC RAT (original size) to replace a travel folder that TSA managed to lose last week between dfw and phx. Considering the hiring practices of TSA personnel in the past, reinforced by complaints on a number of occasions, I only hope that lost meant lost, rather than stolen. I haven...

Re: EDC knife

Ontario is a brand I have considered, and will again. I can't help but wonder if their name confuses folks, so I thought I'd copy and paste the first paragraph concerning their history. "The beginnings of the Ontario Knife Company are shrouded in the mystery of a fading past. It seems certain that ...

Whatever works. I know the Buck Bantam 286 might sound too good to believe. ... on sale at Midway for $21.99 https://www.midwayusa.com/product/2163128778 Rather than look at one of their premium blades I should probably buy several at that price! ;-) I had one of those a few years back, and I agree...

Re: EDC knife

I've started carrying something silly - a Gerber EAB, which uses a utility blade. I need to replace my lost Benchmade, but I'll keep carrying that silly Gerber. It's kind of liberating to know you can scrape gum off sidewalks without goofing up something expensive to replace. It's a little finicky,...

Re: Western Powders Handloading Guide Edition 1

Hmm... odd numbering, but also an interesting distinction in their titling... - the #7 Hand loading guide i I have is the complete manual (about 115 pages worth) and the #6 re loading guide is mostly powder and load data (about 85 pages) Either way, I agree with you that Western puts out very good ...

Re: Western Powders Handloading Guide Edition 1

K-Tex, Is your edition number wrong by chance? (did you leave off a digit?) I have .pdf versions Western Powders reloading guide 6.0 and also the Western Powders handloading guide web REV 7.0 so I was thinking that something might be amiss. No, Sir. I'm talking about the complete reloading manual. ...

Western Powders Handloading Guide Edition 1

Before it was released, the author, Rob Behr, sent me a copy in PDF to review. He did not develop the data, but his printed instructions are among the best I've seen in any load manual, while the number of cartridges in the data is quite extensive, including some of the smaller caliber data for 5.7 ...

Re: .357 Magnum Revolver recommendations

Yes, the Ruger SP101 is a fine little magnum in both .357 and .327. 8F758BE7-5504-4307-91B0-EEAF640A1E63.jpeg Glad that came up! The .327 Mag is a very interesting cartridge and it increases the capacity of the SP101. There are more similarities with the .357 Mag than some may be aware of. The sect...

Re: Lawn care suggestions...

I confess that I am at a loss regarding lawn care issues ever since we moved back in 2017, and I could sure use some suggestions. When we first moved to this house, our front lawn wasn’t perfect , but it was respectably good. Today, 2 years later, it is shot through with all manner of weeds; the St...
