    A word of caution - The strip and side feeders can be dangerous places these days - the LVMPD is no longer as aggressive as they were up to 3 years ago in going after the thugs, druggies, and gang bangers because of the current political culture...

    If you want an opportunity to shoot "FULL AUTO" there are multiple locations in and around Las Vegas where this can be done. Anything from the MP5. Uzi style 9mm based up to M2 50 Cals depending on location.

    I made up 20 rounds of the RCBS 200 Sil load for the 7.7 Arisaka and dropped them off to the Barber I mentioned in this thread. When he gets the opportunity to shoot them in his Arisaka in the next month or so; hopefully will be able to get a range...

    +1 on this. Use the mats above for .223. Use the trivet mats with larger cells for .308 caliber boolits.

    In the original Maverick TV Shows, for the first few episodes the recurring theme was Maverick (James Garner) always pinning a $1,000.00 bill into the inside of a pocket so he would always have a stake for his next gambling opportunity. Back in 2009...

    Test firing was “Interesting” as I left the tripod for the LabRadar Chronograph at the house; coupled with bringing 1 inch black spotter targets on 8x11 white paper as targets – having forgotten the NRA SR-1 standard 100 Yard Targets I would...

    I decided to pull that rifle out of the safe and get to where I could shoot it for the 1st time. Ammunition would be the initial issue. I did a little research and discovered several articles on converting 30-06 Brass to 7.7x58 Arisaka. Some...
