Re: Reloading with best Dies

I’m in the research stage of reloading. I’ve never done it but don’t feel intimidated by it. In the near future I hope to buy a Glock 20 for protection against 4legged predators. 10mm seems to be quite expensive so saving cases and reloading seems like a good idea. I appreciate you guys sharing your...

Re: Favorite 22LR and why.

https://i.ibb.co/b7559RZ/23-D95-AEB-947-F-42-C7-8-CD5-9141-E8-B9-ABD4.jpg . Went to the range over the weekend and the Ruger did well. 40 year old Remington, Blazzer, CCI ammo - no problem. One fail to eject on Aquila. Winchester 14xx FPS ran fine and was obviously hotter than the other stuff. So f...

Re: Truck Gun

As a kid on the farm, there was usually a single shot 12ga and a 22lr in the back window of the pickup (A "truck" was 2 ton or greater...lol) and a machete in a leather sheath behind the seat. Non of these things were for personal protection. The pickup was never locked even when we went to town and...

Congratulations LT. I still haven’t shot my first match yet. Pun intended, I’m gun shy but know I need to force myself out there.

Re: Favorite 22LR and why.

Thanks so much! Keep it coming! Good advice to buy a variety to test first (and good excuse to shoot). 5000 round buy right off was exaggeration on my part. My 10/22 from the mid 1980's seems to fire any old thing. I think I still have some old 22 Remington lead from the 80's lol. You know, some onl...

Favorite 22LR and why.

Morning all. I have a Ruger Mark IV on the way to use for general cheap practice, fun plinking and to someday introduce shooting to my grandsons. Back when I was a kid, dad picked up whatever the hardware store had on the shelf and we shot it. Today there are tons of options not limited to lead, cop...

Re: Smith & Wesson SW22 Victory

After trying both at the range the other day, I ordered a Ruger Mark IV 22/45 Tactical. Both guns stumbled equally regarding failure to feed/eject. I wear a large glove and thought that the victory felt too small in my hand and I also had more trouble keeping the safety off while shooting on the Vic...

Re: Buy it cheap, stack it deep

I just purchased 1000 rounds of 124gr Seller and Bellot for $147 online today. Sucks I had to pay for shipping though. But it's still much cheaper than what I can find locally. I don't stash a ton of ammo, but I've been buying a lot lately because I plan to really get into competition shooting. And...

Re: What handgun do you EDC the most?

I rarely carry but if I do it is either a Sig 938 Extreme or M&P 9c. The 9c is a Gen 1 and desperately needs an Apex trigger.

Re: What's Your go-to 22lr Rifle?

The 10/22 that my dad gave me 30 years ago hasn't been fired very much but I have never desired another 22 rifle. I am thinking of getting a pistol in 22 to cheapen practice.....Ruger Mark IV maybe.

Re: Canik Elite Combat – Setting a High Bar

Nice write up. I will be tempted to own this gun when it has the correct threads on the barrel for the US market.

Re: New SFX range report in KS

“Good luck” might be relative. Lol. When I took it out of the box and saw how tacky it felt, I was disappointed. One failure to feed out of 50rds isn’t good for any ammunition in my book although I realize it could’ve been worse.

Re: Failure to eject

I ran 200rds of 124gr NATO through first and didn't have any failures. The 300rds of 115gr random ammo afterwards worked great. Keep in mind that the higher power of NATO or +P is equally as important to break in rather than just 124gr ammo. Some have also had luck breaking in the spring a bit by le...
