    Dillon is not the only game in town in regard to progressive presses. The Hornady LnL AP is a solid machine as well, and as a 5-station auto-indexing press with a quick change die system for about...

    There have been a few times when I've at least considered buying Remington primers. Good to know that sticking with CCI and Winchester has been a good decision.

    Your assessment of the situation mirrors mine; I just watched the crucial 5 seconds or so several more times, and I can't find anything in that video that makes it at all clear to me why the officer...

    I was impressed at how little time elapsed between the officer yelling commands and the shot being fired. I sincerely doubt there was enough time there for her to realize she was being given a...

    I have to imagine that the person who shot the panel was VERY unpleasantly surprised by it and probably dropped/put down the gun immediately, but I wouldn't fault you for "aggressively" evaluating...

    At least in the context of the video in question, I would argue that the physical challenge in question was only a safety hazard because the competitor stupidly made it into one when it didn't need...

    Exactly this. There is no need to remove physical challenge from the sport when there are already rules allowing alternatives for those who can't complete a given physical challenge. Yes, there's a...

    Can't say I blame her - my wife and I did a really basic "try it" style blacksmithing class, and it was really satisfying to learn to move move metal with heat and a hammer. I'd very much like to...

    As far as current production modern PCCs go, I believe the SIG MPX is the only one that isn't blowback, and of course it's on the expensive end of the spectrum, but it would be an option if a...

    Interesting. I feel like I've read complaints many times about how the DA trigger is excessively heavy, making for a not very nice experience, especially in such a small gun. It's certainly...

    That is definitely irrational. That gun is iconic, but my understanding is that they're basically miserable to shoot. Nasty triggers (hard to understand why, given that Walther also makes the P99 and...

    You two are (sadly) echoing my thoughts on the matter. I very strongly dislike having a self-important, blustering assclown for a president, but at least he's not [explicitly, anyway] trying to...

    That math is fine as far as it goes, though I'd actually suggest that it's pretty optimistic to say you could go from start to finish on 1000 rounds in 2 hours. The question I'm asking, though, is...

    It's funny how expensive $0.33/round .38spl sounds when you load your own 9mm for $0.10/round. Admittedly not apples to apples since 9mm brass is effectively free as long as you're willing to pick it...

    That tactic doesn't seem to have done much, given that it's only got 1% of the vote so far. Done from Firefox on computer A, Chrome on computer B, and Safari on my phone. :)
