    For the money, a Rock Island 200 or the snubbie version(206 I think but not sure) would be hard to beat. Usually around the $220 or so. james

    Great story Larry. My problem is that I now live in the so called country (actually suburbs of a small city) and I haven't seen a rat around here in some 15 or 20 years. We do have squirrels, dove, birds of all kinds, turkeys, deer, ground hogs,...

    I found the same problem several years ago(about 1970) but my solution was to use my 12 inch stainless ruler to wipe the excess powder off. Those Lee powder scopes will weigh pretty darn close if you use them right. Glad you found your problem. ...

    I have one of the AA presses and I also have the adapter to use modern shell holders. No way am I going to pay the prices that are being asked for the "J" shell holders. But then I have always been stubborn about overpaying for things. james

    I went thru the same thing with a Mini-14 several years ago. I wanted a couple of 30 round magazine for it and ordered from an after market "wonder" magazine group. When they came I tried them out and was really disappointed. If you put over 23...

    Really good workmanship for a first holster. I like the roughout leather. I also am interest in how that hammer strap will work out. Holsters were working tools back in the day, not showpieces. The main difference between my first holster and...
