    The problem with a small gun shop is that they don't get the same discounts as the bigger dealers. They can't sell for the same price because they will be losing money. When I had my FFL I could often buy cheaper from a place like Buds than I...

    The 22 magnum is much more expensive when prices are normal. I was rooting around in my boxes of stuff and " discovered " two bricks of wildcat Winchester 22 LR I had stashed away. So I wouldn't do it. I might look at a conversion to a 22 necked...

    Casting can be art or science, and frequently falls somewhere in between. I tend toward the artistic end. Your bullets look to be perfectly serviceable, just sort out the very worst looking ones to remelt. I do not see any obvious worst ones in your...

    At least there 's not a bucket load of parts to try to remember where they went. I had to replace a firing pin once in my handy and it only took two attempts to get it back together.

    I think I remember Dirty Harry saying he liked 44 special loads in his 44 mag and used the S&W 29 because he liked the extra weight of it. It has been a while and I do occasionally remember things that never happened, according to my wife.
