Remington R51

Got to put my hands on a Remington R-51 today at Academy Sports ($399). After racking the slide I can understand why early purchasers of this gun are having so many problems. The poor quality...

Stay with the skeet choke. If you want to go with buckshot I would consider changing to #4 Buck or possible consider BB or #2 bird shot as it has less of a chance of getting out of the house in case...

Ditto for the Sig 938. It has everything you need, small, reliable, accurate and in 9mm it's all you need. It disappears in a cargo style pants pocket, even in shorts and a tee shirt. I carried it's...

I would recommend staying away from lead unless it's a last resort. 9mm tends to lead up the barrels quickly and they are a pain to clean. Unless you can run a patch through a barrel and it comes...

I have 6 Dillon powder measures and the worst is plus or minus 1/10 of a grain. I also get that kind of accuracy out of RCBS. If you are running 4/10, then you just as well use a powder scoop like...

I have found a slight accuracy advantage using the 124 grain over the 115 grain, however the 115 grain is excellent for a self defense load. I would not recommend the 147 grain for self defense as...
