    I just bought a completely ridiculous amount of fabric for these. I'm sure I waste half of it learning to sew, but I'm going to be set for awhile!

    I've never had an issue with the crud rings in the cylinder and I've shot many thousands of .38 Short Colts in my 686. A bronze brush and Hoppes #9 takes it right out. I never go more than 400-500...

    Id like to see that breakdown too. But according to the posted article almost 1/4 of TXs electric capacity is done with wind. Even in TX the wind doesnt blow all the time.

    ^^^This has not changed one iota.

    There are so many ways we can improve/update/secure our grids, but I'm quite the skeptic that logic and reason will win out. The fact is that fossil fuels are...

    Allowing 23% of your capacity to be fulfilled by an unreliable method is idiocy. Using them as "backup" to throttled down conventional plants and/or selling the excess on the open market is one...

    There are many things to consider when starting reloading, but there is one thing that's certain. That is, along the path you will most definitely change something up. A different press, powder...

    And me! I just wished it was more widely known how the CMP came about and it's purpose. I'll probably need a kleenex when there are no more M1s for CMP to sell and use of the knowledge of the staff...

    I have a CMP Service Grade that's almost in Special Grade condition. It's an HRA.

    IIRC, it's a 1955 or 56 version with the original barrel that was hardly shot at all. It had a gage readings were...

    I bought the co2 version because they are a fair bit more powerful and give more recoil than the green gas guns which is what I was really wanting since they have a Gen 5 G17 offering.

    I'll second the coolfire trainer. It's good kit.

    I just bought a Umarex G17.4 co2 gun to train with for GSSF. Working on scaling targets to simulate actual stage distances and spacing now. Seems...

    Thanks. Poor wording on my part. I was taking his scenario to mean the sear had released. But I corrected nonetheless.

    As long as your finger allows the trigger to go back forward, then yes the block will reposition and block the hammer.

    If you like the 629 it'll serve you well. They've sold many thousands over many years. Just don't try to turn it into a "Godzilla caliber" and stick with 44Mag pressures which it sounds like you'll...

    They are fine for .44 Mag but not .454 Casull. It's mainly applicable as to why S&W created the X Frame for the Godzilla Magnums and you won't see any .454 Casull N Frames. Meanwhile Ruger didn't...
