Re: Making your own cleaning patches for bore cleaning?

I've used those blue shop towel paper towels before. Cut them to where they were a good fit, and they worked great. This was for .30 and .45 though, they seem to thick for .22.

Re: Ammo prices going down?

and powder availability is becoming realistic, I can now get Trail Boss without buying it in an auction on Gunsameria or the other one.

Re: Generator Only Runs at Half Choke

I have never used it, but my buddy swears by Trufuel. They sell it both in a pre-mixed version for 2 strokes, and a non mixed version for 4 strokes. Lowes and I think Home Depot carries it. He has been running it in his chainsaws and the like and has not had any carburetion issues since. Your proble...

Re: M1 Garand, help

Based on your description, I would compare that to what the CMP calls the " Special Grade", those are going for $1250.00 right now. Then you have to price in all the ammo and accessories, the gentleman that said $1,500 to $2,000 had it about right.

Re: Cheap AR

That's a good price, but i've never heard of them though . I'm assuming that is not a polymer lower/upper , that's the only thing that I don't like in AR's these days. Outside of that, you could upgrade as you go if you want. As an aside, I bought a cheapo upper from a company a few years back that ...

Re: Taught a friend to reload today

Very neat that you taught him how to reload. Back when I was 20ish, a guy from work who would have been in his mid-40's offered to come over and help set up my reloading room ( I knew nothing about reloading at the time). He even welded up a metal bracket to attach to my bench for mounting the Rock ...

Re: AR digital trigger

That actually sounds pretty cool. Especially since it still retains an option to quickly return to mechanical mode. If they are in the $500.00 range that would be a good price point, as that is where Fostech is with there 2 shot trigger, although theirs is nothing as fancy as this. I guess until I f...

Re: Taurus CT40 Goes Full Auto Without Trigger Pull

They lost me as a customer with the whole millennium pistol fiasco. I still have a Raging Bull in .454, but even that has been back for repair once. No more Taurus's for me.

Re: Building my First AR-15

I put together several M4 profile AR's using mostly Palmetto parts in the last few months. I went with their chrome lined M4 barrels instead of the freedom barrel line. The M4 barrels they shipped were all made by FN, which I was happy to see. I would say that the Daniel Defense barrel would definit...

Re: Longetivity of ammo

I'm still shooting South African 55 grain ball that has a 1980 headstamp, never an issue, has sat in my garage in an ammo box for decades. Back in the 90's I was shooting Den 42 surplus ball in my Garands with no issues at all either, that would have made it 50 years old. Wish I had some left around...

Keltec P32

Bought one of these at the Saxet Gun show in Dripping Springs today. My backup carry/pocket carry/too lazy too carry anything else gun has been a North American Arms .22 mag up to this point.I carry it all the time. I took the P32 home and polished the chamber and ramp with a dremel and bore paste (...

Re: AR accuracy fix

Actually, the video that JB2012 shared is the exact one I looked at, forgot to add that I did the blue loctite deal also. I'll be doing it on every one I set up from now on.

AR accuracy fix

I figured I would share a story about an AR build that was giving me fits, and how I fixed it. I recently got into building AR's and was on my 3rd one when I ran into a major accuracy issue. I had bought a 16" new M4 upper that already had the barrel installed. The upper would shoot about 3" groups ...

Re: ID required with CHL/LTC for handgun purchases?

I have never bought a gun in which I was not asked for both my DL and my CHL, in fact the phrase I most always hear is , " need your DL and your CHL if you have one". I guess if I did not have a DL, but only a CHL, they would only get the CHL. Never really thought about it.
