    There was a fire in June but they planned on rebuilding. Per a family member if the family was still running daily operations they would not be closing it. https://websterparishjournal.com/2021/06/22/public-awaits-answers-on-goex-explosion/ ...

    My model 581 is probably the most accurate 22 LR I have ever owned. It shoots as well as my Winchester M75. Maybe better. It is not all that fussy about ammo. An old lot of Winchester super Speed is the best so far. I really haven`t tried any...

    Any firearm can be damaged under the right (or wrong) circumstances. It is true that a Glock has fewer parts and they are all drop in. After that I see zero advantages of a Glock. I am mostly around 1911's yet I have seen more blown Glocks than...

    Stephen, do you have Asian Collared Doves? Since they were released/escaped here as pets they have grown in numbers. They seem to be everywhere. As a nongame species, there is no season or limit on them here in Oregon.

    I can`t speak for the S&W 629 but I had a S&W M29. This was the early days of IHMSA. It was totally wore out in 5K full house rounds. These are not tough guns. If you want to shoot a lot of hot 44 Mag loads buy a Ruger. The SBH or the RH will...

    Long term support would be the issue for me. Normally I like RCBS product but their progressive presses are an example of how not to do business. They tend to have very limited support as soon as they do a model change.
