    Good gunsmithing around Pittsburgh

    Does Ron Mahovsky do gunsmithing? Respected for his hard chroming, would assume the process is such that being a gunsmith would be an asset. Grand Valley is pretty close to Titusville. www.mahovskymetalife.com Might have recommendations for local gunsmiths if not

    It's A Different Sound... I Wish I Could Forget

    Good to hear. Do not assume that the impact of this is not significant just because you can cope, PTSD isn't just for combat. Know you aren't forgotten, and prayers continue, for the deceased's family, and you.

    Are any of the SCOTUS Justices gun owner?

    I was specifically responding to the way that post implied Miami JBT's assumption about me. But I stand by that post. From how much gun control originally was to prevent those with the wrong skin color from being armed, to the current push for banning EBRs and high/standard (whatever term the...

    Are any of the SCOTUS Justices gun owner?

    A lot of gun control is tied at the hip with racism would be a better way to word that.

    Are any of the SCOTUS Justices gun owner?

    As I said, my current perspective is limited. Perhaps gun control initiatives from the high population density urban areas are not imposed on the rural citizens of a state, but rather it typically is the other way around. That is not what I see locally, but again, my perspective is limited. I...

    The 20" is pretty awesome, but check out a 16" too.

    No love for the 300 Blackout?

    Casting and reloading for .300 Blackout, especially when shot from the Ruger American, is fun. But if you don't enjoy the .300BO, don't waste your time with it because I like it. Shoot what is fun for you.

    Are any of the SCOTUS Justices gun owner?

    I speak from a regionally limited perspective, but I live in a rural county with a strong hunting tradition, where firearms outnumber people. And from what I see and know, the perspective that urban areas are in danger of repressive gun control because of anti-2A Fudds, is neither well-informed...

    It's A Different Sound... I Wish I Could Forget

    An experience like yours is shatteringly damaging. Absolutely follow through with that call. And as you pray, know that others are praying with and for you.

    Why Own a Snubby?

    I strongly disagree with those who have suggested the thread be shut down. There is a lot of good information wrapped inside of thoroughly entertaining debate. You don't have to come to the same conclusion of a poster to learn something from their post, and changing someone's mind isn't the...

    A spare reload if needed

    I've never had a jumped crimp or had an ejector rod shut me down. Not saying it can't happen, but those are not common issues. Now, at the same time, I have autos that, other than drills, I've never had a TRB issue with. But there are reasons for running those drills with an auto. I...

    A spare reload if needed

    I would argue that both platforms are susceptible to failures due to neglect or mechanical failure (parts breakage). And when those issues take a firearm out of action, either platform "ain't so easy to fix." A revolver just eliminates all those tap, rack, swap the magazine issues.

    Smith vs Colt

    Now, I would say that S&W is Porsche, Colt is Ferrari, and Ruger is Corvette. One brand historically dominates competition: The whole "Why is LeMans 24 hours? Because if it was 48 hours, only Porsche would finish." One brand dominates lust. magazines and checkbooks. One brand can do what the...

    Smith vs Colt

    There is a thread asking about your rarest firearm. I suspect mine is a Colt 357. Which is what I find interesting. The 357 was Colt's flagship, until they came out with the higher-end Python. The 357 is considered the poor-man's Python, a functional equal, but less prestigious. Smith and...

    Why Own a Snubby?

    Searched USPSA and IDPA, none in area. I've spent $ on training. But for practice, should I stick to dry-firing, or would you say that time on the "square range" would be beneficial?

    Why Own a Snubby?

    In this thread, much disdain has been directed at the "square range" and marksmanship. Instead, realistic training has been emphasized. Shooting from the draw, while moving, under stress, with fast follow-ups at close range is recommended. On this site, you can find undisputed claims that...

    Why Own a Snubby?

    So, a handgun that eliminated the general weak point of an auto, that could be a reason to carry a revolver (even one with a short barrel). I've never heard that the purpose of a New York reload was to cover for a malfunctioning firearm, but often that is the reason given for carrying an extra...

    Why Own a Snubby?

    What is the reason for carrying extra magazines? Is there evidence of civilians using a second magazine in a shootout?
