    Just passed on a H&R 6.5" single six in .32 H&R mag at 250$ mostly because the seller would only take postal money order or bank certified check. Just more hassle than it is worth. Then I found a Ruger Bisley single six new in box with a buy it...

    I recently tested my Hipoint C9 pistol with 8 rounds of 125 gr rnfp over 2.5 grains of Red Dot. You'd have to chrono them but that is half a grain below start. Pistol ran like a champ, accuracy was ok, mostly out of practice with it. I...

    I don't see overpenitration as a problem. Inside the house its 12 ga all the time. Outside, well I really don't care a whole lot if that slug makes 2 holes vs one. All depends on the situation, what you consider acceptable and what is not. ...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Coffee in Our Town
    I've done it in mid summer, with a freshly brewed jug of sweet tea. Still not quite the same though. I used to drink a single 12 oz insulated mug of coffee every morning. Then my wife upgraded me to a couple of those nice stainless steel...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Texas Drivers in Our Town
    North Dakota Drivers have gotten really bad the last 20 years. We even have our own move named for us. The "Dakota slide" where people change 2 or 3 lanes with no signal to be seen. Normally cutting someone off in the process. Had one do it to...

    Outpost will get here, he is the king of the .32's from what I have seen. I have a Rolling Block takedown chambered in .32sw long. I have not got it totally tweaked yet. Still working on finding what it wants. My favorite boolit is the Lee...

    Break the barrel, turn safety off, cock hammer, holding the trigger back ease the hammer down while looking at the hole the firing pin should come through. Did it? Many of these rifles have transfer bars, where if you release trigger too soon...

    The Earth is not static, it is a series of cycles that repeat. Some short duration, some long, some in the middle. You can NOT trust what the government is putting out. They are cooking the books trying to make a failed point. For every place...

    I'm with JimB. And I do those regularly with nothing more expensive than an old RCBS .270 winchester die with the depriming rod removed, some cast .357 bullets from 125 to 158 gr, and old punch, and a hammer. I will say get a Lee .430 size...

    I believe you'll find the temp. range of Ben's Red and also BLL lube hard to beat too. I use both in my rifles year round with no problems in heat or cold. In all fairness though, Felix lube is a good one too and might just need just a slight...

    Some 4 years ago being flush with cash from early inheritance I bought a bunch of silver. Paid 14 to 14.50$ per ounce for most of mine. I have an assortment but the majority of mine are 1 oz silver rounds in a variety of patterns. All .999...

    I've seen it done. If it was me I would get a second bushing and fit it for the long barrel. At one point one of the gun parts company's was offering 12" barrels for .45acp quite reasonably. Would turn a 5" 1911 into a different sort of beast....
