    There is small shortage on low end SD stuff. Plastic Pistols, black low end long guns. Price is up on all such stuff. Hunting and Target Guns don’t seem to be affected. In fact there is probably not a LGS around these parts that won’t cut you a good...

    I’m in Ohio. I don’t think switchblades are illegal here. Most switch blades I have seen are not good steel. This includes US military ones with orange handles. The only ones worth having are older quality makes, which are expensive antiques or new...

    I’ve personally wore out 357 and 44 Lee Molds years ago. I don’t buy them anymore. I have Lyman Ideal molds that are over 100yrs old. Most likely several owners and thousands of bullets and casting good as new. RCBS, SAACO, H&G, ect . My suggestion...

    I never did understand the laws against switch blades. It’s like the laws against AR & AK type rifles. Like Hillary says, at this point what difference does it make. If you aren’t going to stab anyone with your Folding Hunter, it’s very unlikely...

    A small 25 auto is better choice. Light and flat, easy carry and you can shoot yourself in the head with it to avoid the pain a bear might inflict on you. A Judge is a piece of junk to begin with and 45/410 ain’t much against bear. A buddy of mine...

    Exactly what I was trying to explain. I buy what I want and very seldom buy new. If you buy used solid top shelf firearms you will not lose money and may gain some. New stuff with price adjusted for value of the dollar really hasn’t changed much. By...

    I shot Brn 5s since I was big enough to hold one up. I had 8 in 35 at 12. It did waltz me around only weighed 110, but still I never thought of it being hard kicker. I have a 81 in 300sav that had a recoil pad added. The 8 & 81 recoil different, not...

    A guy just bought my 25, 30, 32 and 35 Win dies and brass. I didn’t sell my 35 dies and brass. I will keep them because I still have 35 rifles. I think I have some factory ammo for 30 or 32 left. I lost track of dies I sold vs what I still have.

    It would have been easier to thin rims before you formed Brass. Chuck up in drill press and use file on them. You can do it in a hand drill if you clamp it down. I’ve seen guys use big hose clamps for this. I built me a mini lathe just for cases and...

    Ok, what would you buy that would be dependable and would hold its value? Not even the top shelf 1911s will do that. If they are used, they won’t sell for new price, why would they? A $400 1911 used is worth what? Ruger probably next and nice gun,...

    I like the 8 more than 81. I’ve had 30Rem and loaded for it. Didn’t shoot cast, shot JSPs. I shot a couple deer and varmits. Basically Rem version of 30/30. Recoil is nothing.

    I’ve had Dryse 32s and they functioned well but couldn’t hit bull in but with it. No big deal I’ve had a dozen Brn 1900s and didn’t do any better. JMB was suppose to have carried a 1900 as his favorite pinker. He must have be plinking barns.
