    Hunting locally, my rifle 3 rounds of ammo, hunting knife with 4" drop point blade, compass in the flat woods, binocular, water bottle, snake leggin's before the first heavy frost, cell phones and GPS's seldom get a signal in the heavy hardwoods around here, so I elect to leave them home, PB&J...

    One of the best deer calibers out there, I had one in the Remington classics and like a fool, sold it I later bought a Remington custom shop .260, poor accuracy, even after several trips back to the custom shop, no'mo .260s for this old man, but I do have a like new set of RCBS .260 dies I could...

    How often to clean guns?

    Everyone has their own regiment, I clean mine after each range trip, whether I shot 10 or 110 rounds. It'd be kinda like putting a baby to bed with a dirty diaper to not clean after use.:D

    Show us a picture of your reloading bench

    I built that, its two pieces of 6" channel fitted to form a box, the angles were to allow clearance, for the ram stroke, inside is a small plastic box that catches the spent primers. I built the bench also as a island affair, it permits working all the way around it, consolidates alot of...

    did i just ruin my powder?

    Some good advise offered here, I agree completely, especially with the one powder only on the bench at all times. You're lesson cost you far less than mine. I once mixed a full hopper of reloader 19 with a 8 pound jug of Varget, stupid:( I was going to pour up the reloader 19, and fill the...

    Cylinder won't open, HELP!

    Extractor rod is coming unscrewed. Pull the hammer back to where the cylinder will turn, then turn it backward while trying to hold pressure against the side of the ejector rod. What you need to do is screw it back in far enough to allow the cylinder latch to push the locking pins in all...

    The 1911 - is it because it's American?

    I was once just like you, the only experience I had had with the 1911 was in basic training in the military. The ones I shot there were mostly worn out and rattled when shook, but they did go bang every time you pulled the trigger. My days in Law Enforcement saw only revolvers, model 27s, model...

    Questions about S&W 45 ACP revolvers

    You're going to love the ,45 ACP revolver, I have a S&W 25-2 that is superbly accurate, it can be fired without the moon clips, I lighten up on the crimp a tad and normally the emptys will fall out. I also have a .45 ACP in a Ruger Blackhawk, its also very accurate and requires little to no...

    Need a 45 ACP. Suggestions?

    I have the .45 ACP/.45 Colt Ruger Blackhawk. If self defense is not on the menu for the pistol/revolver, I'd highly reccomend this single action revolver. Mine has the 7 1/2" barrel, ajustable sights and is extremely accurate. If it came with better sights it would be awesome. Fun gun to shoot!!!

    KIMBERS and 1911s...

    I have two Kimbers, one stainless ll, one cdp ll, both are extremely accurate, neither have given me any problems. The stainless ll did begin life sadly by FTE, I took the extractor out, put a little more tension on it, its been good to go since then, probably 500 rounds. I can't say that for...

    Nice find, I have one ser# N71XXX. I bought mine from an widow. It is a dream to shoot, excelent accuracy. Mine did not have the correct grips either, but since I bought it to shoot, I changed out the ones that came with it for some Hogue rubber grips. Sorry I couldn't be of help to you.

    Titegroup, 115 gr 9mm, Very Dirty

    I must be doing something wrong, I have been shooting titegroup with 115 grain bullets in a 9mm and its remarkably clean, but I'm running it a little faster than you are, or maybe I should say I'm running them on the top end of the load data. I'm shooting them in a Kimber and accuracy it top...
