    Assault weapon ban vote tomorrow 7/30/2022

    Well, I have had fun sharing with you all but my time here has run it’s course. I’ve been pretty careful about what I say in this forum and I was just censored for stating an undeniable truth and that isn’t going to fly. I’m sure I’ll see some of you in the many other forums I’m in. Until then...

    Making a change…

    Made some changes to the Colt Competition. Put a Wilson Combat competition trigger in it. It fit tighter and got rid of the weird click I felt pulling the trigger. My son noticed it too when I was playing with the trigger. Made a loud click and I could feel it in the grip safety. I didn’t see...

    New Springfield Loaded

    Good to hear my friend. I appreciate that you are skeptical. At least you aren't a sheep. Customer service explained they had a lot of problems with the 911. My mind set on the issue is, if I or anyone else for that matter, sends one in and it comes back running great, why don't they adjust the...

    New Springfield Loaded

    I actually enjoy the conversation. Look, what I am seeing is QC across the board. Its a lot of manufacturers, not just one. Guns are being manufactured and shoved out the door on a level that we have never seen before. I have no quarrel with Springfield. They don't ever argue and it always comes...

    New Springfield Loaded

    For anyone who is actually interested in how the gun is performing now, it has exactly 100 rounds put through it without any failures to feed or eject. The slide also has not seized up since I lapped the slide rails. I will accuracy test it another day. At this point, its working perfectly.

    New Springfield Loaded

    Don't be dramatic. I'm not angry with you. I would buy them locally, some I do. Unfortunately, most big box stores have trigger locks on that you can't really do much inspection with it there. I have put in orders on some that my small shops don't carry, unfortunately, I end up on a list...

    New Springfield Loaded

    Let me level set here. Jan 2019 I started keeping track of new gun purchases in a spreadsheet for my insurance company. I have 73 guns in my inventory sheet, those are in the vault. About 10 that aren't in there yet (recent purchases in the last couple weeks). 23 currently at auction and at over...

    New Springfield Loaded

    Well, 3 out of 7 failures to chamber and 1 failure to eject reduced to zero failures sanding that spot smooth. The 9mm went from 100% failure to chamber in the first two mags to 1 per mag sanding that one spot. You may disagree but the evidence shows otherwise. Now I have a couple of Springfield...

    New Springfield Loaded

    Getting to 300 rounds with a seized up slide would be a bit difficult. As for the issues I’ve had, I’ve been pretty transparent, pictures, videos and pretty detailed descriptions… I’ve never had this much of a problem either, but it exists regardless of whether you have trouble accepting it or...

    New Springfield Loaded

    Wasn't that long ago I saw a video of a guy who had the same issue with a Dan Wesson. Seemed fine, put some oil on it, fired the first shot and seized the slide up. He took it to a local gunsmith and had them free the slide, repeated the process with the same result. I'd just like to avoid that...

    Making a change…

    Gonna need a new family pic soon… probably grab on in a few or early in the morning. That Metro 9mm is making a trip to the manufacturer tomorrow so this may be the last chance for a while. It’s in its own thread so I didn’t clog this one up with the particulars but this was added today...

    New Springfield Loaded

    Ok, so this is the 4th Springfield Loaded I bought this year. The 1st was a CA compliant model which is at auction now. It needed a sight replacement (which Springfield did) but shot beautifully. The 2nd is currently in my collection. Needed the engraving sanded down where the disconnector...

    Any woodworkers here?

    Very nice

    Any woodworkers here?

    More imagination than anything. As far as the kids furniture, I had to put myself into their shoes at various ages. That dresser has an angle iron frame in the top because I built it to hold a 40 gal saltwater aquarium when they were 2&3 years old (night light with style 😉).

    Any woodworkers here?

    I was an avid woodworker most of my life. I haven’t had time the last 5 years or so. Projects ranging from picture frames to bedroom furniture. Most recent was refinishing an Amish made solid oak dinner table (why anyone would put water based finish on a kitchen table is beyond me, but they...

    Making a change…

    Is the trigger on yours standard width? I’ve been reading reviews on trigger replacements and have read a couple that said they didn’t fit the Gold Cup. Made me concerned about the one on the Competition.

    My new toy

    Hanging right above the 1911s. My middle boy has the Trump golden boy silver hanging in his bedroom.

    My new toy

    I got at least one 22 for everything I have, except a 1911. 22s are great when you just want to sling thousands down range without breaking the bank. Also great for quick draw, shooting from the hip cowboy action. Lever guns especially, the whole purpose of the lever gun is to work than action...
