Re: Just starting to get into reloading (another one)

My first reloading vise was a RCBS A2 press that could be used for heavy swaging. I built a portable table that I could slide in and out of a closet. When I got to a new location I would put it in a closet and do my reloading sitting in the doorway. I designed the table top so I could full length si...

Re: Vortex Venom 6 MOA Not Available

I don't care for the thick Bezel on the Holosun 507c compared to the Venom. I have not shot one so don't know if that is a real problem or not.

Re: Cleaning Canik hammer fired CZ clones

I use Hornady One Shot on my Canik. I use it to flush out the working parts. It will evaporate and leave a dry lubricant/protectant on the metal parts. One drop of oil on the slide rail stubs and wipe to remove excess.

Vortex Venom 6 MOA Not Available

I can't find a Venom 6 MOA any where. I saw some other post about a new model coming. If that is correct, does anyone know when the new model will be on sale? Any suggestions on another choice? I don't think I want a Holosun. Maybe a Burrus. I already have a Venom and very satisfied with it. Any hel...

Re: Rifle

I was working in a gun shop back in the 50's while I was going to high school. I remember the 340 coming into the shop and as a teenage boy I thought it was the ugliest rifle I had seen. In the 50's we were selling Win M70, Rem 721/722/725, Brownings with FN Mauser actions and the best stock design ...

Re: Reliable 22lr Pistol?

Hi Janik, If you shoot targets or think you might shoot 22lr steels or other competition, then take a look at the S&W Victory. Very accurate, very reliable and not a lot of money to start with. I think I paid $315 with a threaded barrel. Lots of after market addons. Simple to break down and easy to ...

Re: Favorite gun you’ve owned?

My favorite was my 375 H&H magnum. It was the first rifle I built when I started my shop in Alaska. I bought a 300 Weatherby and tossed everything but the action. Paul Marquort barreled the action and while it was in Arizona I had a recoil reducer cut into the barrel end. The stock was walnut and I ...

Re: Dorain...........!

Right now it looks like Dorian is not going to hit Florida full on. It is turning North and heading up the coast. Good chance it will be several miles off of the Florida coast. Hurricanes do strange things and we won't know for sure until Monday. Moving pretty slow right now. Florida will get a bunc...

Re: What were you doing 50 years ago (1969)?

I was building a microwave system to support a Kentucky educational TV system. I worked for a company that built Microwave Systems in California. I traveled the US building microwave systems for various Telephone Companies. In 1969 it was Gen Tel of Kentucky.

Re: Which TP9 Would Be the Best All-Around Choice.

Before you pick a gun I suggest you check out red dot sights and determine if you might get one sometime in the future. If there is any chance you might go for a red dot sight, them make sure the P9 you choose has the red dot cut in the slide. For everything but carry, you can't go wrong with the P9...

Re: Favorite 22LR and why.

Hi Flingit1200s,

Congrats on your new Ruger. I shoot a S&W Victory with 4K rounds of Blazer RNL, I have had no failures. The Blazer is accurate, a great range ammo and good prices. Mini Mags are very good but a step up in price.
