    Reloading 101: Do NOT Do These Things

    Did not know that about Winchester Primers (Standard or Magnum Loads) I'll take a look for myself. I don't load my practice rounds past about mid range or a bit higher but never to do top end. Why bother? Thx for the info.

    Reloading 101: Do NOT Do These Things

    Sounds like 'm better off than you. When everything is loaded, and in over 30 years of shooting the only rounds I've bought are JHP for carry, I'll have a lot of ammo. At 79 probably enough to last until I can't pick up the gun anymore. I'll bet you're loading .45ACP for a 1911. I loaded...

    Reloading 101: Do NOT Do These Things

    Here's my 2 bits on reloading. Buy Dillon equipment. I have two Square Deals, and while they won't do rifle ammo, they have done well over 130K pistol rounds. Dillon service is supreme. I call, tell them the problem, 2-3 days later I get the part no charge. Not one penny over almost 30...

    Is Everything You Know About .40 Wrong?

    Interesting article but some points I'd like to point out. First, .45 defensive loads are NOT typically 230 grains. Second is that bigger bullets do not always translate to "snappy" recoil. I kind of feel that most .45 rounds will PUSH rather than snap. The .45 round is not, I think harder...

    Review: The Ronin EMP

    Two mags would not be great. Two mags are mandatory. This is a 9rd. carry gun. What, no reload. That's nuts. I'm actually ready to buy one to replace my Ruger Officer model in 9MM. But I'll wait for the inevitible special that comes with , yes, the required two mags. Especially since it...

    Review: The Ronin EMP

    I don't know what people do but I don't believe I have ever done that with mine (2). They just want the serial number when you call. Of course once you send the gun to them for repair it becomes registered. As far as buying parts they will probably sell you a mag. or set of grips but if you...

    Review: The Ronin EMP

    Big fan of SA guns and service. Have two old, well worn 5" 1911's in .45ACP with about 100K between the two of them. But because of their size I'm carrying an SR1911 Officer Model by Ruger (ugh!) only 25 oz. empty with a 3.6" barrel. Have a total of five 1911 platform pistols. I like this new...

    What Is the Springfield Armory Warranty? An Inside Look

    I've got two full size 1911's in .45ACP. One is about 35 years old and the other about 15. Between the two there are easily over 100K rounds. Over the years both have been back to Springfield once or twice and I stress it was not for defect failures. In both cases they paid shipping both...

    Concealed vs. Open

    I'm a transplanted Yankee to South Central VA so I'm not going to touch the whole Confederate thing. But in my 78 years I have learned a thing to two about people who over compensate for their feelings of inadequacy. Again, I'm not going to spout wisdom about what those signs and behaviors...

    Concealed vs. Open

    My take on open carry. You are open carrying and walking down the street. Approaching you is a yuppie type with his little girl, about 5 or 6. The issue of guns, of any type or kind, open or concealed is not on his radar. It's just not something he thinks about. It is not part of his...

    An opportunity Of A Lifetime Or A Logistical Nightmare And Bust

    No expert in this field but... If this company is involved in making pistols into "faux" SBR's (google Roni and Micro-Roni) their future is closely tied to politics in the US. One glitch with the ATF and bingo they are essentially history. Ask them if they are willing to put funds in an escrow...

    First Look: Springfield Armory Emissary 1911 Review

    Very nice. But I already have two .45ACP full size SA 1911's that have served me for 35 years. Let me know when you make this gun with an aluminum frame, 9mm chambering, and in at OFFICER MODEL light enough to carry all day. I'll send my deposit today.

    Review: EMP Concealed Carry Contour 9mm

    OK Springfield, almost there. I like the idea of a "smaller" frame. So here's what I want now. Cut the grip height down to the same height as an Officer model and the barrel to 3-3.25" and make the frame out of a lightweight metal like aluminum or scandium. This might bring the weight down...
