    Dick's is famous in N. Seattle. Has been for 70 years. If I ate a burger now it would probably kill me.

    308 Vanguard would be my choice on that list. The barrel and action is built by Howa. Not super expensive but high quality. I built a precision rifle using a Howa 1500 and I have no complaints. It...

    That's a smart move Stephanie. I saw that one before you posted. The barrel and cylinder doesn't look to be original to the frame. If it were the bid would be up around 1K by now. There's also the...

    I thought I made a mistake once but I was wrong. ;)

    It's tax dollars. Nobody has any skin in the game except the end user. Shoot a procurement guy in the leg and see how he holds up.

    Yeah, that sucks. I'm all in on training for job performance. I took advantage of everything that was offered. Even to the point of being accused of being a training hog. :D

    I mean official department purchases. I used to take advantage of agency "training" that was an out-of-town mini vacation but that ended in 2008 and the yuge budget shortfalls. I retired in 2013....

    It might be that dealers are selling most of the ammo they get to LE at their usual mark up. Just a guess.

    I just loaded the last of some primers that I've had for years. Russian Murom I think. I haven't seen any of those for sale in a long time. I remember some kind of import ban on some Russian...

    Looking thru my Standard Catalog it appears that the 3" model 10 wasn't made in large numbers. 84-87 seems to be the only period except for special order to PD's and foreign govt's. Most model 10's...

    That's my question. Whatever happened to the beat down with a baton? I know it looks bad on camera but it's effective.

    I used to know a Seattle cop who told me that women on the force didn't have...

    Bolt guns are more accurate. I shoot with a guy who has a DD AR. I think he said he paid about 2K for it. Has $800 Leupold glass on it also. He hasn't shot 1 MOA yet but he doesn't reload and buys...

    I think they're like Chevy's. You might get a good one but I wouldn't care to set the odds. I was at the range one day and watched an old Marine shooting a 5.56 he had just purchased. 1 MOA. He was...

    They're a valuable asset for the tourist industry. They don't kill very many people anyway. 8 in the last 11 years.

    History will inevitably repeat itself. Just seems like the cycle is becoming shorter. Maybe because people don't read as much as they used to. Or maybe what they read they don't believe, or both.

    If someone is spending that much money on a new press, it seems auto indexing would be a given.

    I load .357 cases "light" also using about half the powder if I were loading to 1250 fps using 2400. A fast powder will get you 850 fps no problem. One might ask why even have a .357 if all I'm going...
