    I just threw 5.5gr of Power Pistol behind a few Lee 125 (drops at 135ish for me) LRNs. Seemed to shoot well in my SD9VE. I want to see how it does compared to Blue Dot out of the carbine as well. I tend to lean Blue Dot in the carbine because it's...

    I've done both resizing pre-lube and post powder coat. Never really bothered me either way. I tend to just size post PC because it's one shot instead of two; never had one seem like it was going to peel or the likes.

    Cranked out 150 rounds of .45 ACP. 4.4 old Nitro 100 (not NF) and a 215gr (Lee says 200) LRNFP. I had good enough luck with these I'm willing to dismiss the one bobble I had as something I should have plunk tested for or gotten a case gauge. Maybe...

    Went and tested 9mm/Power Pistol. 5.5gr if I remember right. Stuff shoots nice, bit snappy and a bit flashy indoors but worked very reliably and I got accuracy that was as good as the fool behind the gun. :D .45 was a really mixed bag, I think I...

    Actually made it to the range today! had 1 or 2 which gave me trouble with the Nitro 100 but overall function was pretty good with 4.4 grains. (NOT the NF variant but the old version.) Basically the max load. I have enough to load up the last of my...

    The big thing in my mind is the idea that infection and complications of infections are horrible things to die from and medical tech wasn't near as good. I wouldn't be surprised if people took that into account when they considered they may get shot...

    Interesting it's not a cross draw but also interesting that whoever ran the department had that much of an emphasis on firepower accessibility. I would be curious the origin of it since I've never heard of any other department or people doing it. I...

    I honestly don't care if it's for free or not I care more about the risk of cracking the frame which I've read is a risk; not exactly a gun that's rare but the idea they are a matched set is what's important in my mind; to the point that if I sell...

    I would say that legality would FAR FAR FAR more be a problem than cost. Then again if I'm going for the gold it's going to be field artillery or a rock and roll MG-42 (I'd gladly settle for a nice MG3 or Yugo M53.) Why stay small?

    Some years ago (but not too many) I bought a brace of S&W revolvers. One is a model 38 (the j-frame "bodyguard" in an air weight. No -, it has a stainless cylinder however. The other gun is a 3" 66-1. These were supposedly carried by a MI State...

    That sounds interesting. When I did the JP reduced power springs in my AR I ended up cutting the spur off the back of the hammer to make it look more like JP's. It worked well for me didn't have a problem with steel case 5.56 even. Add the grip...

    Pretty sure I have one of these. It's a nice trigger and a great value.

    I will say that I use the Jiffy mixes but I do this 1 simple trick; I add about a TBS of oil (just dump some in) and an extra egg. Takes quite a bit longer to bake but it doesn't disintegrate. That said for true corn bread aficionados Jiffy is...

    Interesting. I'm wondering if there's another ammunition with a better profile like Wolf or something else; I have a spam can plus some of surplus still but I don't shoot it a ton just because of the corrosive ammo and the recoil truthfully.

    So I have some ammo for my Mosin (I think it's Hungarian marked 21 87) and LPS steel core ball and it jams into the rifling on my M44. You can see the marks clearly when you chamber a round. Is this a safety issue? The thing kicks like a mule...
