Nice profit on the resale I'm assuming. My Shield cost $419 + tax. This gun works for me and my extra large sized hands like the smaller guns don't.

It is interesting to see what others pay elsewhere. In AZ, you can buy a gun and walk out within minutes. If you are not banned, they call in to the state police for a background check. If you have a...

Gun shows becoming too costly?

I enjoy going to gun shows now and then to buy reloading supplies, buy specific guns and/or to sell a gun or two. The last show I attended in Phoenix cost $7 to park and $15 per person after a $1 off...

I just bought a bag of lizard litter from the pet shop the other day and used it for some cleaning today. I added a cap of media polish and a dryer sheet cut into quarters. Most of my brass is pretty...

These "best" posts are something aren't they?
I'm old fashioned for the most part in my gun likes. Make them of metal, by a main manufacturer and of a standard caliber. My best pistol is a S&W...

Kahr CW45

Just picked up a new Kahr CW45 today. This is my first Kahr (also first striker fired pistol) and I can't wait to try it. I have two 1911s, so I'm not unfamiliar with .45 acp. The manual says not to...

Saw one (Ruger) on the rack at Sportsmans Warehouse for $699. I didn't ask if they had more in the back. I have one and it's a keeper. I shot about 350 rounds my first outing. Soft shooting and...

I took a large bin of 200 gr. SWC ammo to the range and blew through about 300 rounds. No problems, all fired and I was pleasantly surprised with the soft shooting and tight groups. The muzzle was...

I bought one a few years back. Scandium, commander sized. Shoots nice groups, likes all the ammo put through it. At around $800, it's a very nice gun.

decocker

When engaging the safety/decocker, the hammer goes all the way down on my gun, so there is no way to go cocked & locked. I experienced no half-way position. You can always contact Baretta to ask...

Pistol brass can be reloaded a lot so the amortized cost of the brass can be quite low. You can also buy once fired or range brass for a lower initial cost. I would probably buy reloadable rifle ammo...

.380 w/ W231 & Hornady 115 gr HP

I set up my used Dillon SD for .380 auto rounds using W 231, a 115 gr Hornady HP, Starline brass & a Winchester primer. I monkeyed with the OAL, since my manual said to keep it shorter than maximum...

I have a Dillon 650, two Dillon SDs and a Hornady 366. Only the 650 was purchased new. Buying in quantity keeps the costs reasonably low: kegs of powder, sleeves of primers, & bullets by the 1,000s....

Cowboy Action shotguns

I started SASS with a 97 Winchester copy. I've since aquired an 1899 built Winchester 97, an 1887 lever shotgun copy & a Colt hammergun reproduction. The lever shotgun gives style points, but it...

I would rather have brass than nickel. Yes, I do have some nickel rounds in .38 that the nickel has worn through and they are still great. More often they split and I've had two head separations...

Are you cycling the powder measure by hand? I'm not sure how your hand could get chewed up. The auto disks work as advertised and they also have a charge bar that works good. I'm satisfied with the...
