    I pulled a cgrutt this time and ordered first, asked questions later. No, not the Dillon, but the Hornady LnL AP press. I read lots and lots and lots of comparisons between it, the Dillon650 and the Lee Loadmaster. It is the one that won my eye. Basically, my question(s?) is, to anyone who made...

    So last night I had to pass up a decent shot on a doe because the deer were about 5 minutes late and I had lost so much light that my rifle sights had lost their contrast making a 75-100 yard shot way too tough for me to ethically take. I'm thinking next year I am going hang some glass on my...
  9. Accessories and Gear
    I'm sure this has been discussed and debated to death, but I'd like opinions on the two. I've mostly used leather, and had middling results. I've had one kydex holster previously, and that was the Galco KingTuk. Now, while I did not care for the KingTuk, there were reasons besides the holster...

    I've been watching one sit at what I consider a reasonable price for over a week (after being reduced by $50 from its month-old price). I dearly love my K31 and have heard that the 1911 long rifle is even more accurate because of the longer sight radius. I don't "need" it, but I'd love to have...
  11. Ammunition and Reloading

  12. Handguns
    So for discussion purposes I've been thinking about a small revolver for carrying concealed in certain environments (not that I'm ready to buy yet). I'm a big ruger guy and I plan on a gp100 at some point too as I love how they are built rugged and reliable. I thought about the lcr but I want...

    So I get coffee everyday at a chocolate/coffee shop in the lobby of my building. Just so happens a very cute NYC girl, maybe 30 - 35, works the am shift and knows my order by heart. She also happens to wear a small caliber bullet around her neck. Not sure maybe a 25 or 32. I never asked her...

    For a long time now I've had this question in the back of my head...and I've improvised in what I used, but never dove much further into researching it. With a few pistols in the cabinet right now, and another Glock--a 36--on it's way, I'm wondering what everyone uses and recommends for slide...
