    I've had the same problem with plated (don't remember the brand) but a pass of the bullet through a sizing die before loading solved the problem. I guess all things aren't created equal.

    My method of concealment changes with the type of clothing. Winter clothes are purchased with CC in mind. Yes, you need to practice drawing with each different condition and be constantly aware that different clothes require different reactions.

    If a rifle had a flimsy looking magazine, I'd buy a few spares. I have two for my Patriot Walnut (although I don't forsee a problem with their plastic mags, they are pretty stout and I have bought quality metal Aussie made mags for my Ruger American...

    Spend the money on ammo and practice with the trigger you have. If it wins wars and keeps our troops safe, it's not that bad. The most expensive trigger available still needs practice to make you proficient. Unless the particular trigger is...

    There was a time long ago when I worked 50-60 hr a week, raised 2 children and kept a house and home. There were no safe queens and every new aquisition was fired as soon as I could manage a trip to the range. Time has a way of changing habits. ...

    The stigma in the media and the bad publicity of the VN era rifles caused me not to have one until a couple years ago. Then the prices were a problem until I decided to build one. My first was a 24" with a fixed stock and it really stooked my...

    It's good to know there is a name for what I have, but I've already forgotten what it is. For years I've said the brain is like a computer, and I have an old model. It has very limited ram memory and in order to remember anything new, I have to...

    I've worn coveralls or overalls off and on since the early 60s. She bought them for me as a Christmas gifts and insisted I wear them. After 54 years I know not to argue, especially over petty things. Besides I like wearing them.
