    I've had two Taurus revolvers in the past and based on their performance I would jump on that 82 for that price for sure. Sent from my SM-A716U using Tapatalk

    That's very much dumber than separating the magazine from the rifle- and that's dumb enough in my opinion. Because separate parts get, well, seperated..... Sent from my SM-A716U using Tapatalk

    I've used two Richard's stocks. They were seconds, which meant I had to do a bit of corrective shaping or fill small knot holes- but the figure was amazing for the price. This was 15 years ago or so so- I don't have any recent dealings to speak of....

    The 6.8mm SPC is based on the .30 Rem case which basically is a rimless .30-30. My idea was to make a rimmed 6.8 SPCR for use in single-shot actions using .30-30 brass. I used a Ruger #3 for my SS so I just chambered for the standard 6.8. It has...

    Big old guns. I miss the 1909 .45 Colt that I had in the 70s. I got a good deal on it because someone had put Kings adjustable sights on it. It sure mowed the bowling pins down. I never bench tested it, but it shot my jacketed reloads good as far as...
