    Get some pearl grips for it, then move to New Orleans, then according to Gen Patton, it will be one. https://laststandonzombieisland.com/tag/only-a-pimp-from-a-cheap-new-orleans-whorehouse-would-carry-a-pearl-handled-pistol/

    "Don't do it. You'll regret it afterwards. Is it really worth it?" These words apply both to walking into a bar at 1 a.m. and shooting +P in a classic K38.

    376Steyr replied to a thread 22LR @ Walmart in Rimfire Area
    +1 on this. I can remember paying 49 cents for a 50 round box of cheap Federal promotional loads. In 1978. And they were on sale. I figure at least a nickel a shot will be the going rate for .22 ammo for a while.

    I generally have a few "ringers" (nice descriptive term) in every lot of US military 7.62 brass I get. I figure its a combination of corrosion from getting wet while waiting to be picked up on the range and/or wet cleaning. To date I haven't been...

    Alternative method: Cast some rock-hard bullets, at their normal diameter, load them over some fast-burning powder, and see what happens. Those of us with .45 AutoRim revolvers with hopelessly oversize cylinder throats have had some success with...

    +1 on using a faster twist for longer cast bullets. IIRC, John Wooters used a 1-14" twist in his original Copperhead, and had stabilization problems with longer bullets.

    I got an M1 from the CMP last Thanksgiving. I used a Garand Collectors Association membership ($25/year) and my Concealed Carry license to meet the qualifications. General information about ordering is here: ...

    For wild speculation, manic-depressive mood swings, and a general feeding frenzy when there is nothing in the water, head over to the CMP Forum M1 Garand thread on the topic and check out the guys who are going berserk at the news. ...

    Have you tried cleaning out the factory trigger assembly? I often find old Remington triggers are horribly gunked up with old 3-in-1 oil and the like that has turned to varnish. Maybe it's glued together now. Flushing it out with lots of solvent...

    Wall hanger. Even if it was in pristine condition I'd hesitate to shoot it. Put it in a shadow box with a few old photos and call it good. Let your grandson worry about shooting it when he inherits it.

    I have an ATI carbine in 9mm. It will get a suppressor as soon as the Hearing Protection Act passes. It is a lot of fun. Pros: Takes a lot of AR accessories, including upgrade triggers; comes with top-grade forearm and buttstock; uses Glock...

    If you don't have any other wrinkles on the rest of the bullet, oil contamination is unlikely, but I'd clean the blocks again just to be sure. If that doesn't work, I'd look at your pouring technique. Do you press the mould against the spout? Use...
