    I am Scottish on both sides and it shows. I can be a cheap SOB. So I grind very fine, like espresso, but not a lot. Maybe a tablespoons worth or a bit more for 12 oz of water. Or just take an espresso shot and dilute it 2 or 3 times with hot...

    Geo, Saddened to hear about your health limitations. I know how much it sucks. I had to drop out at the Ohio State Championship one year...I could not lift my gun. It took over a year to get better, and I have not shot competitively since. ...

    Makes sense....only one chamber and likely less bullet jump. My old High Standard Military would put 50 rounds into less than 1.5” at 50 yards from a Ransom Rest. My .22 revolvers are Rugers...so not high end and I have never tested them the...

    dverna replied to a thread Black Friday deals? in Our Town
    I got lucky. Have wanted a good PCP pistol, and Crosman had a 25% off sale plus free shipping. Wound up buying two and some other neat things. Great savings on great products. Bargains are out there but I would never go to a store or...

    Racing, I have read that some air gunners will have two barrels for their PCP's. One choked for pellets and another un-choked for slugs. There are a few folks who hunt with air guns but of the hundreds of shooters I have met over the last...

    Sir, That is THE BEST write up I have seen on the subject. Many folks here have done it but do not share the details as to cost, and time needed to produce. You have confirmed that doing this is not for me, but your post will certainly be...

    Racing, Very interesting read, Curious as to the range those targets were shot at....figure 50 meters? Also wondering if you cast slugs or buy them. You guys across the big pond are way ahead on this stuff. Btw, some states here...

    Crosman had 25% off site wide and free shipping for Black Friday. I had a budget of $750 for one good pistol. After doing a bit of research and getting advice from the good folks at Gateway to Airguns, I bought two Crosman 1701P's. One for my...

    If you are looking for 1.5" at 100 yards you are likely working with a .308 or .30/06...right? (might be helpful to share the cartridge you are working with) Look at the .30 XCB threads posted by Larry Gibson and Tim Malcom. IIRC they got very...

    I have a Howa Mini-Mauser in .223 and it might cover both of your first needs. It weighs less than 6 lbs so it fits the "walking varmint" slot and it will shoot accurately to 300 yards. I am planning to get a Boyd's stock for it. I understand...

    Charlie, I cannot remember if you tried this. Some people do not use a check weld and say they shoot better groups that way. One less thing to get "right". I tried it with my PCP rifle when I was struggling, and it did not help me at all. ...

    Not hard to make a set of tools that will allow you to reload. It helps if you are not looking at rounds of trap/skeet etc. I have shot both .303 british and .444marlin in my Mossberg .410. Fireforming the brass was not hard. Turning rims...

    I will echo the advice above and STRONGLY suggest reloading to start with. If you do not like reloading, casting is a next to useless skill to have. I would start reloading for your 9mm with jacketed bullets as jacketed bullets are not very...

    Last I checked, Honda does not make a dual fuel unit. The smaller gen sets (under 3500 watts or so) will NOT run 220V but you do not need that voltage for your use. The little Honda pictured above will run you $1200 so not cheap and it will...
