I don't consider the .44 Mag to be painful unless it's one of the dark alloy frame beasts from the S&W custom shop but........ Years ago when I let my brother shoot my Ruger, after one shot he gave...

My SRH 454, 2.5" Alaskan was pretty stout with my homegrown 405gr Hard Cast hog loads. Off hand was fine but the last time I shot it from a rest it damaged my wrist. I can't shoot it any more so I...

I am definitely a hoarder. For guns that are strictly for hunting I keep about 50 or a 100 loaded up with supplies to reload plenty more if needed. For guns that have more application to a SHTF...

After handling many many guns my wife fell in love with the 3" SP101. I don't mind full power .357mag loads in it but she is much more comfortable with .38+P's in it. It can handle anything you put...

This doesn't really help Moonshine's problem but just another vote for the
PX4/.40S&W. After a couple thousand rounds never one hiccup of any sort. Your problem must be a true anomaly.

I told you I was embarrassed............. Shortest answer is that I was rushing to test the loads before sun got too low to get consistent readings on the chrono. I noticed the recoil was "stout" but...

I assume you mean "get another" spring and not "get another " gun. Right?

I took it to the range yesterday. My first 5 rounds with my 123 grain PSP's and 3031 powder at 50 yrds with no scope were dead on. 1st shot dead center on the X in the 10ring and 4 more made 1 jagged...

I'm glad you were too W3. I didn't go into detail before but this 1911 has been converted to a 400 Corbon which I love. I replaced the 16# spring with an 18# spring due to the stronger round and...

UTF, you are the grand prize winner. Great call! His (her?) answer reminded me that this gun is the only 1911 I have ever put a buffer pad in. When I got inside I found the remains of the rubber...

S&W 1911 slide sticking on recoil

I have a very Accurate S&W that has never given me a problem for about a 1000 rounds. Today I noticed the slide was slow to return after each shot and after a few more it began sticking in the full...

Just to add to the J-22 comments, I did find mine to be fairly reliable until it decided to go full auto. It would sporadically go spastic and slam fire all the remaining rounds in the magazine so...

.45ACP with small primer pockets?????

after picking up my brass at the range, and apparantly some other's, I found I had 15 cases stamped FEDERAL 45 AUTO but requiring small primers instead of large. Does anyone know what's up with that?

A friend of mine had a gunsmith convert a Red Label O/U to a 45-70 O/U with 22" brls regulated at 75yds. It turned out real nice and shoots excellent groups. It was "pressure tested" with 405 gr...

I believe a stovepipe is a partially ejected shell caught in the closing action of a semi-auto, mouth end up (often seen in a 1911 cause the 45cal mouth is so freaking big) looking a little like a...

You must have missed the part where said, "$100". Even with the High Point name, a carbine for that price was hard to pass up. As far as the girlfirend, I haven't had one of those for 37 yrs....
