    Well I think we get used to using something when we've had success with it & the guy speaking out against the HP seems to be a very experienced hunter/shooter, we just travel down different roads. I was talking handguns & he was talking muzzle...

    Yes, it is Harbor Freight Red, I use it almost all the time because it has worked well for me. I also use the gloss black sold by Smokes4320, I think it is, good stuff. It's actually a better quality of paint but I've never been able to shoot any...

    I have some Federal .410 slugs that are 125 gr and running 1775 fps! That is above most .357 Magnum loads. I also have a bunch of Thug Slugs I got from BPI that are 125 gr with attached wads so they should be relatively accurate. I have a...

    As I understand it, the original 1892's had .310 bores. I have two, a 24" and a 28". When I had them relined due to bad chamber pits, we used .310 liners. They both do well with .312-.313 sizes. The original barrels may have been eroded by the...

    OK I put this up but everyone ignored it. The guy wants a Stock on his pistol. This is not legal. Period. However the USA 1 Shot Pistol Brace doesn't attach to the pistol, the gun merely sits in it. It is the same as bracing the pistol...

    I checked my bullet mould & it says 453490, it's a Miha mould so it is a clone of the 452190 like I thought. Doesn't really matter, it's a fine looking bullet & I have no doubt it will work just fine. If I didn't think it would I wouldn't use it. In...

    More: don't get me wrong, Remington 870's are very good guns and far superior to Mossbergs as "Field Guns" or "Trap and Skeet Guns", however IMHO the M500/590 is far superior as a "Tactical Gun." With a Field Gun or Clays Gun loading and...
