    This is mine, on many occasions. Other times it might be a 22 single shot or handgun of some type. Will always be something light pleasing to my eye while being nice in the hand. 32WCF M25, sure wish they still made rifles like this.

    Our tuxedo, Murf, he came to us from the Walmart parking lot. The tuxedos are full of personality and seem to love their humans.

    Got 2 from Titan, see the banner at the page top. They support us, and had them in stock. I am going to make one like this and one longer by the lube groove, reaming out the groove for 80 gr ish range. Least that’s the plan at the moment:)

    I like it! Wonder if Lee could be enticed to make some 6 cavities of the short version, they already got the cherry! I like it so well I’m ordering 2 molds to cut for myself! Thanks for sharing the idea and info.

    “Home defense” unless you live in a mansion means 20 to 30 feet is long a shot as possiable, more like 10 feet in reality. 20 or 12 ga pump, no contest and no doubt.

    Not an expert at all, but the uphill vs downhill seems to point to the carb float. Perhaps another look at the carb with special attention to the float and related valve. Fuel level will be different in the bowl uphill vs down hill. Also trash in...

    I have thinned rims on 40-70 brass in a drill press. Unless you want to recur the primer pocket depth you should trim from the front. I made a plug, slip fit to the case mouth to prevent deforming with the chuck. You will need a safe edge file, or...

    I have an 04, best I recall that is some minor revisions but basically very much like the 1902. I like it, it is kinda chunky in the barrel diameter but overall prety tiny, yes, i understand that makes no sense. Thats just the feeling I get from it....

    That is a key point in getting along with the 410, or “idiot stick” to a lot of 4 gun skeet shooters! Just looking at the classification table for American skeet you can see very little difference between the AAA minimum score in all gages, except...

    If you could peg the remainder of the pin in the retracted position and get some serious vibration going, the broken stub might release. Would only have gravity to move the stub, tough situation. I would hate to cut the operation rod, but that will...
