    Makes perfect sense. I'd think someone doing this sort of testing would want to inspect the brass for further evaluation. Why would someone need to light off 50+ rounds when the first five or so...

    Cases marked "9mm Proof"?

    Picked these up at the range. Most are bulged varying degrees. The bases are red. Anyone have an idea what this brass is used for?

    Regarding recoil: My C has less felt recoil than my all steel Kimber HD Pro Carry II despite the weight difference. My all steel Springfield EMP, despite being heavy, is also very snappy. I suppose...

    Took about 9 pages to remind me of my 1911's grip safety. Who knew?

    Feels good, points naturally, enough pellets for my perceived risk mitigation even in the old man's caliber.

    Changed the battery and now the 407CO is stuck in manual mode; no mode change blink after 3 seconds of "-". So, back it goes.

    407CO Mode Logic?

    I have several Holosun red dots, but the just-received 407CO is behaving strangely. The buttons are definitely an invention of the devil size-wise with close cropped fingernails. That aside I've...

    Maybe it had a very short shelf life. Not coming up on Netflix for me. Bummer.

    RMR or RMRcc for a 1911

    My wife's current HD gun is a Kimber HD Pro Carry II with RDS but it's a bit hard for her to rack. I'm planning on adding an RDS to one of her 9mm Springer 1911s and she really wants the largest dot...

    Lens Color for Shooting

    I've finally settled on 2 diopter for my iron sight shooting which, strangely enough, is less than my 3 diopter prescription for distance. This assumes the lighting conditions close down my pupil. ...
