    That looks like a lead ring. If it's bulged, you will be able to feel it with a patch. Rings and even bulges are more common in rimfire barrels than people think. If the barrel shot ok before, it...

    I still do not understand why trained persons might have negligent discharges when pulling Glock triggers in order to clean them. The preventive step is simple. But alas I still read about these...

    I admit to never having heard of Apple Carplay. After owning the Tacoma for 20 months, I discovered what the weird plug receptacle is for. I asked my mechanic buddy when he was bumming a box of 380...

    Texas ain't got building codes. Some cities do. We boast about minimal regulations. Unfortunately consumer protection laws are few. Money talks and bullshit walks. Our land is one of milk and honey.

    Prior to the temp falling to 4 degrees, I turned off my water at the street for 2-1/2 days and used stored water. I felt that pipes in exterior walls would freeze. We have lost no utility services...

    She entered reserve service with unique status and may have had more informal authority than her supervisors. Perhaps she is qualified to comment on reserve service in one agency. That's it.

    I recommended 4-5/8 because it is a traditional barrel length for Ruger single actions. And the op was going to have the barrel cut. With a Redhawk used for hunting, the extra sight radius and extra...

    They can do as you suggest. My opinion is that without silver soldering or use of a miracle epoxy, the ramp would not remain attached. Recoil forces would soon pop the screws. The heavier the part,...

    As 41magfan said above, Magnaport would be a great place to send it. As said in link, they could remove and reuse your original sight ramp. These folks have been doing this for 50 years and have all...

    Reloading with progressives involves a learning curve. Primer feed is usually a significant issue. Pulling the handle and having the "whole thing move" is great until something misfeeds. Then you...

    You will enjoy your Glock. Consensus is they run best with Glock parts. Be aware that original Glock parts are almost unobtainable. Therefore, losing one, even a small spring, has become a big deal.

    45 years ago I read an article criticizing the 1911's 17 degree grip angle. That number is from memory. The author opined that this angle restricted the shooter's pointing. He did not surmise that...
