    I have spent a ton of time in Mexico for professional reasons, mostly in Mexico City, Chihuahua, and Guadalajara. Just like the USA, there are good areas and bad areas and good people and bad...

    I would check to see if the slide has been lightened internally before shooting full-power loads. Cuts to expose the extractor tunnel are common. If the slide has been lightened, full-power loads...

    The current Ranger is larger than my 1998 F150 was; the Maverick is closer to the size of my 2010 Ranger. As for names, marketing will do marketing.

    I do not want to say much as I will have parts...

    Has anyone heard if the new owners have been able to restart 870 production? The last thing I heard was in the LGS and stated that the restart date has passed without employees reporting to the...

    Interesting thought. I must say I have to agree, especially as Remington is no longer making Model 700 rifles and may or may not make them in the future. That should make the Model 700 collectible...

    I am fond of the Milt Sparks Axiom as the snaps allow the holster to come off the belt quickly and easily and the holster is wide enough to distribute the load. Not inexpensive but very high value. ...

    I pulled my Yost Delta Elite from the safe. The magazines for it are CMC M-CL-10FS9-P. I also use the OEM Colt magazines and some Mec-Gars. I will have to try the .45 ACP magazines.

    0.004" from center translates to 0.6" error at 25 yards if I did the proper calculations properly. I am a bit anal and need to eliminate my excuses, so I would try to shrink that a bit.

    If the only reason to buy a 7mm Remington Magnum is because the rifle cost is no more than a .243 Win or .30-'06 rifle, I would think long and hard about the uses for the rifle. Even if you reload,...

    No, JMB did not specify it; he patented it. Patent royalties and licensing fees were the source of his income; as such, he patented many ideas that may or may not have made into it a product.

    Great post. About the only other comment is that the mainspring rate can be lower for 9x19 1911 IF one is not using "hard" primers. That requires less energy from the slide to cock the hammer and...

    One other reason for people with short fingers/small hands is the reduced trigger reach possible with a SAO version of a DA/SA pistol. For example, my hands do not work with the S&W 4506. But the...

    Baer guns exhibit barrel springing, which is part of the reason a new Baer's slide is hard to rack. While the five-inch guns will wear into a fit, it is not uncommon for Baer pistols to shear barrel...
