    News stories now that state POTUS has provided more ammo for a mistrial or an appeal if convicted. I have a feeling the trial judge may want to redo his "sequester the jury" decision.

    This is why I never buy a first-year production example of any new vehicle. That is only one issue out of hundreds that will be found and fixed. The hard part is buying before the VA/VE (cost...

    Triple K makes a replacement magazine that (surprisingly) functions just fine in the Nomad. The original Triple K magazine fed just fine but did not actuate the hold-open mechanism on the Challenger...

    The reason I carry two pistols is to increase the chance that one of them will work when I need one to work. Most of us here shoot a lot more than most people; as such, we have suffered more...

    My guess is insanely overpressure (like Ruger-only, FA 83-only, or T/C Contender-only) .44 Magnum aka .44 Remington Magnum. If I need 340-grain JFP at 1425 fps, I will opt for .454 Casull in an FA...
