Went to President Trumps rally in N. Arizona last week. Turnout was huge over 25,000. Amazing that we are over a 100 miles from any large metro area. I don't think we will have any leftists try to instill their ideas in our areas. I hav'nt seen maybe ten Biden signs compared to the thousands of Trum...

If you can find Federal small rifle primers they are said to have a softer cup than some other brands.

I've heard from a few people that they use small rifle primers when they run out of pistol primers. I never have tried them, I might try some light loads with some and see if there are any signs of pressure.

I use Berrys 124 gr. round nose, with 3.7 grains of Titegroup. It works well in all my nines, even my P80's that don't like most 115 gr. factory ammo. 124 Nato or these reloads for them.

Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore sent an e-mail this morning saying they had 500 rd. boxes of Winchester white box. 259.00, there must be some desperate people out there because it is out of stock.

I've built four P80's a 19 long slide, a 17, and two 34's. I never owned a real Glock, just did'nt care for the feel and angle of the grip. Took me about an hour to do my first frame, the last one less than half an hour. The beauty of the P80's is you don't pay full price for stock Glock then spend ...

That number 25 fits my M&P 9, Sigma 40. Glock P80 clones and M&P 45 also fit with the rail spring removed, does'nt hurt the retention. If you are running a light on your guns check out the Blackhawk Omnivore, they fit over 100 different makes.

I use alot of Fiocchi in my .40 S$W's, also my 300 Blackout that I shoot supers in love it. It was the only ammo that would cycle when using P Mags. Switched to Lancer mags now it shoots anything. Got a deal awhile back on 124 gr. Fiocchi all my nines love it. Shoots in my P80 clones, nothing in 115...

For years in Northern Arizona they used black volcanic cinders on the roads in the winter. About the size of pea gravel, it was non corrosive but hell on windshields.
