    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...

    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...

    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....
