This tool is the best way I've seen to get the old pins out. You could grind your own, or order one at the same time you order replacement pins. You can get the rear/takedown pin out by removing...

No, Jon, I would never hurt a Chupacabra! You see, I have a soft spot in my heart for the Chupa. Allow me to explain.

In San Diego, it's about $9 to park (!!!) and about $10-11 dollars to get in. The lines at the reloading and ammo vendors are long and slow, and you don't know what will still be in stock when you...

Compact to me means a single stack magazine or a J-frame. In many years of concealed carry I never found a higher capacity pistol that concealed easily or carried comfortably. If it doesn't conceal...

I've got that same Model 66, although mine is marked "66-2". I always thought the "-2" indicated the 2 1/2" barrel, and the "-4" would indicate the revolver left the factory with a 4" barrel. Can...

For the lower, a couple of roll pin holders and roll pin punches really help, although they are not necessary. Likewise with the stock wrench. You can do without it, but they are cheap and they...
