    I didn't know about the Shield 380 EZ until a short time ago either. I've got the brass, molds, dies etc. for .380 - just nothing to shoot it in at the present time so I've been half heartedly looking to see what I could find. From what I've seen...

    Great photos to show the differences and it is all BEAUTIFUL! Thanks for sharing! I've never been up there but it sure looks great. That's what I find interesting here where we winter in Arizona. We're in the south - desert with mountains to...

    I'm a right handed shooter - BUT - due to loosing most of the central vision in my right eye due to diabetic retinopathy and laser treatments many years ago, I was forced to start shooting left handed. I have owned one left handed traditional style...

    bedbugbilly replied to a thread Value? in Muzzleloading.
    I'll echo indian joe - I've had and built many rifles over the last 50+ years and used a number of different barrels. I have owned a couple of CVA rifles - both had Spanish barrels on them and both were excellent shooters. By in large, I found the...

    The safety issue of having the breech area thick enough for threads, etc. has already been addressed and all of that is really common sense. That said, I had a very nice barrel that was about a 28 gauge IIRC that was made out of a "modern" single...

    Or you could look at the 360 DW - basically between a 357 mag and 357 Max. I use the 360 DW cases for my 357 Handi rifle as it has a deep throat - they work fine. I have some of the 360DW but I'm in Arizona and the casings are back in Michigan. ...

    LOL - with the length of that barrel, you really don't even have to shoot it . . . you can just reach out here and "what" the game you're after! :-) I love the under hammers and to me, a 20 gauge is the ideal bore . . . or it was when I used to...

    I can't add much - I have to echo what Hardcase416taylor said. That's the same load I finally settled on for my Uberti 45 Colt. I've used unique and GreenDot as well but still keep going back to the RD - the standard 255 gr. lead old time favorite...

    Just a suggestion . . . why don't you try what Turner Kirkland used to suggest many years ago. Bench the rifle and in front of the bench, spread out a white sheet. Fire your charge and then check to see if you have unburned grains on the sheet. ...

    I am assuming from your post that these are "copper" and not "brass" - so what is the history of them? Sincerely, Jim

    357 as ir would be mor versatile for my needs - but I also love the 45 Colt so if I couldn't have a 357, that would be my second choice

    When it comes to Wills and Trusts - I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for. Nobody wants to pay the high rate of an attorney but if there is a possibility of a family squabble (and NO family is immune to that) or anything but simple - do...

    Is the lock a traditional flat style V mainspring or is it a coil main spring? Can you post a close up of the lock? Thank you.
