    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'm not sure the component shortage is going to end anytime soon. When the ammo shortage slacks up...

    How does any of this matter now? The military has a contract with Sig no matter how bad the 320 is. Same thing happened to Colt M45A1. Colt had to eat some of those but nobody lost any money except...

    I think most people clean their firearms too much. I read someplace that the Army/Marines destroyed the muzzles on a lot of rifles by being anal about cleaning the bores all the time using steel...

    I have a stainless 1911 and a 625. The muzzles look like hell even after I clean them. Somehow those matt finishes soak up the powder residue. It's like it just works it's way into the finish and is...

    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...

    Great read. Thanks for the link.

    I like my Sigs and HK's but I have a number of revolvers also. The first handgun I purchased was a surplus Webley about 50 years ago. Had at least one ever since.

    Is the power utility in TX privately owned? How can they charge someone that much for power? I don't think that could happen here because utility rates are based on the cost of service. PUDs here are...

    Probably why they're still around and in use. I've carried a model 36 off and on for 30 years. I'm not looking to get into a gun fight but I want something better than a blade if I need to buy some...

    I think an RV refrigerator can take up to 400 watts to run. It's going to run off of the RV batteries, shore power or propane. When running on RV batteries (towing) those will need to be recharged...

    The vehicle wiring has a 20 amp fuse so I would assume we're at least 20 amp to the 7 pin jack. The plug wiring to the inverter may need to be heavier IDK. Something that may need to be addressed....

    Glad to hear that. Next time you'll be ready, even if it's just a little power to keep a fridge from thawing or plumbing from freezing. I don't have a 3000W inverter for my 4R but seriously thinking...

    I think the output (3000W in this case) is what needs to be compared here. Also the delivery, sine wave etc. I don't know a lot about stand alone generators but I installed an inverter in our trailer...
