    Ought to work fine. I use a "kit" my optician gives me when I get new glasses. I pretty much have to go with "plastic" lenses, since glass in my coke-bottle-thick prescription would weigh a ton. ...

    Disappointing, i.e., the loosening. Further disappointing that, seemingly, "proof" was asked for.

    I have to agree with those who expressed the thinking that a manual safety is just fine, as long as the operator is trained to use it (and that usage has become ingrained). I will limit this to...

    I had a Colt New Agent with the gutter/trench sight. The only way I could shoot it reasonably well was by just indexing the gun. Trying to "sight" using the gutter just wouldn't work for me, at...

    At range yesterday with RMR'd Ruger .22/.45 Mk III. Winchester 40gr bulk ammo at 25 yards. My best group (ever, actually), a 9-shot, 10-round one (one misfire), something less than two inches. But...

    How's that shoulder strap for hoisting all that weight? OK for a quick walk from house to car, car to office, etc, I presume. Perhaps not something you'd want to use for couple of miles walk?

    Ditto. I don't use them much any more, but fully appreciate the "thoughtfulness" of the LEM trigger. Plus, of all the rounds I shot through them, I don't recall anything breaking. And I'm a fan of...

    I'm (vaguely) recalling that the shelf life of blue Loctite is two years unopened, one year opened. Equally vaguely, that max. cure time is 24 hours, with shorter times at higher temperatures.

    I can't say the Vibra-Tite doesn't work. I've tried it, with mixed success, likely because I didn't allow sufficient "pre-drying" before assembly.

    That said, Loctite is "easier" for me to use...

    RoyGBiv, Got my package from Gander a few minutes ago. If the 9mm works as well as the Aquila .22LR, I'll be more than satisfied.
