My New Shop

Earlier this year my dad passed away and left me his place in the country. None of my brothers wanted it so I would have got it anyway. The bad part was the clutter I had to deal with. My dad built this pole building before he built the house, 1974. Used it to store building materials while he built...

Re: Moved my reloading bench

It would take 4 persons to move my reloading bench. I can not even pickup one end of my bench. I ended up building it in place knowing I could not move it once the top was on. When I need to move it, I have to put a floor jack under it. Makes a good solid bench, no flex in this one. I need to post u...

AR-15 Rifling Question

I have ventured into the AR platform and have a question about the ratching rifling vs std? Here is a link showing the difference http://www.shilen.com/ratchetRifle.html Is this type of rifling inherently more accurate for heavier bullets? And how does it preform for the ligher 55gr. I'm building me...

Re: Finally picked up my Mk 1.

What you describe sounds like a B-line mount. A friend of mine uses one on his MKI since it's not D&T.

Re: CZ 75B SP01 makes me a better shooter

The only time I shoot that far left is when my left eye want to be dominate shooting right handed. Which happens quite often for me since my left eye is better. It takes over since the astigmatism is bad in my right eye. Practice Practice Practice is what it take to get better :guns: :guns: :guns: :...

Re: CT Laser Practice

I have the CT grips on my carry gun. Learning to shoot with it the first time was a learning curve, since you don't use your regular sights. The bouncing dot just indicates how much your moving, which can be a detraction. The only time that matters is when the round is fired. The lasers can be good ...

Re: Putty for Glass Bedding Jobs

I use some putty/sealant in refrigeration work. It's used to seal around copper pipe penetrations. It never hardens, even in extreme heat, aka garage. There are 2 types I've used. One is a black cotton tape, you see on car expansion valve and sensing bulbs. The other is a white rope/cord that you mo...

Re: Hunting Season Coming Up

I may even get to hunt this year. I have not deer hunted in decades (4). The game camera has been picking up several bucks in the 6-10 point range on a regular basis. Does are only allowed during the Thanksgiving weekend in this county unless you get permits from the TP&W. I did not apply for any th...

Re: Boyds Rifle Stock

There is some rust bluing formulas that look and hold up better than the hot dip tanks if done right. I've seen some some very pretty blue jobs done by rust bluing it just takes longer to do. Etching steel will be the fun part. The hard stuff is getting the stencils like you want them. I've got my o...

I read on several forums where guys are processing 1000's of brass for resale using them. Takes a lot of SS pins then you have to have a big strainer to catch the pins and separate the brass. If your doing large quantity 10k/day it would be worth the effort. There are some larger drum models that ca...

I carry a full size 1911 here around the farm, open carry. If your required to conceal it maybe it's the time of year to be wearing a coat. I know they make pocket holster for the small revolvers. As far as IWB holsters go it's about about the fit and cant to make it comfortable. I know when I start...

Normally not. None of mine are the same level. The reason why is that the barrel is on a ~1° angle, not level.

Unless you live in the country and they still carry rifles/pistols in the trucks and atv's. At my dad's place every one is armed and you can hear shooting at all times. A lot carry open side arms while there out in the field/woods, minimum. The sheriff even told me who to hook up with that reloads a...
