    Years ago, I had a BH with a front triggerguard screw that kept working loose. I used blule Loctite that held it in place for several years, but you must degrease the screw and the hole for it to really work. I used denatured alcohol, but any...

    Find a case or two that will not chamber if your rifle. Instead of screwing the FL die down till it touches the shellholder, Leave it a turn or three off the shell holder and size a case. If the case will not chamber as it should, turn the die...

    higgins replied to a thread FFL required?? in Our Town
    Go to the FAQ section of the ATF website; it's very helpful. There are special provisions for estates and relatives. The antique angle is worth looking into also, if you can verify year of manufacture which may be difficult if they were made...

    Most rewards cards are OK if you pay them off entirely every month. There might be are markups for CCs at retail, annual fees, etc., but the biggest hook is getting people to buy more than they can readily afford.
