    That law also allows archery hunts to carry will hunting. Same for the times the hunting firearm needs to be cased and or unloaded. Nice to have that option. I don't understand why anyone would have an issue with allowing more options.

    The legal system forcing cops to treat everyone the same is what happened. I grew up in a small rural town that had "peace officers" not LE. Open air parties were the norm on Friday and Saturday nights. Underage drinking and driving was also the...

    Yes I own and use both. They both have their applications. For pits or rough bores I prefer the Lisle style brake hones. Stones are available in various grit.

    Even the "new" just released reloading manuals tend to be at least a couple of years behind newly released powders/cartridges. For new powders/cartridges you can contact the manufacturer for data or use their websites to download and print.

    That is a common complaint with them. The mainspring should be a flat spring. Not sure if other models are interchangeable. Try here https://www.ssfirearms.com/products.asp?cat=166&filter=mainspring

    The 2nd was not written for hunting. The "need" for firearms is to keep the "leaders" inline.
