    Having the same problem here. And I've been disenchanted with the NRA since the early 70's. I had finally rejoined a few years ago, when this thing with Wayne La Pierre went public. Let my membership expire at the end of January this year. Not going...

    I was lucky enough to snag one of Colts 8” barreled Target Pythons , about 30 years ago, chambered in .38 special. It will pile em up if you do your part. Add a Colt Cobra, Trooper, and a S&W K38 , well it’s hard to choose among the options!

    There is no need to build heavy wrist breaking loads unless you are going to shoot them. If some one wants to shoot your gun just say NO. there is no need to make some one hate to shoot, It doesn't do our sport any good at all.

    I've grown fond of the automatic center punch, too. You don't have to worry that the punch will slip before you strike it with the hammer. It's also easy to drift an off-the-mark punch to the correct location with an automatic center punch, as well....

    If it’s 32 special headstamped cases, I would trade it for 30/30 cases rather than size them down, trade em to someone who needs those head stamps, but that’s just me. Good luck and good shooting.

    Ken, the 133 pounds is the result of the remelting. I had probably 75-80 pounds of steel and then there was the zinc, which I haven’t melted yet! This was 2 5 gallon buckets of all the stuff from the tire machines. I bought bulk, no weight , just a...

    Taterhead, I’ll use this, add 2% tin by weight, then cast 22,9mm,40,44,and high velocity 30 calibers. Probably use it by itself for buckshot also. 12 gauge Slugs get range scrap. 38 wadcutters gets range scrap. Get this amount every couple months....

    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...
