Re: My New S&W M-41

Dang, that's a long barrel you have on your Ruger. You have some nice pistols yourself. I messaged bear and the old man and he hasn't been shooting for 3 or 4 years now because of health issues. I don't know if you have talked with him or not but that's the reason he doesn't come in here anymore and...

Re: My New S&W M-41

That's a nice looking pistol. How reliable is it with ammo of various manufacturers? Also, how easy is it to break down and clean? From appearance it looks like it is very ergonomically suited to shoot similar to a 1911 . I just purchased a Ruger Mark 4 22/45 Lite pistol is that I am really enjoying...

Re: About gone but not forgetten

Hello everyone, and Merry Christmas! I miss days of yore when people would be periodically posting in here because it seemed like a down-to-earth gun forum and wasn't overcrowded with BS you find in larger forms. How are all of you doing? I wonder about the likes of the Old Man and Greener, as well ...

Re: Too Quiet

It's strange that it is so slow because there are so many gun owners out there. Where has everybody gone?

Re: Too Quiet

I agree, it used to be a good group of posters in here, I don't know where they all went. I will post a comment of what happened to my LCR recently. Well shooting, get jammed up inside and would not fire anymore. I brought the gun home from the range and disassembled to find the transfer bar had bro...

Re: NAA Guardian 32

The biggest issue for me carrying a concealed pistol is weight, which coincides with size as well. My favorite carry gun for winter/jeans weather is my Ruger LCR 38 + p revolver because it's light enough, packs a lot of punch and conceals well in my right front pocket with a DeSantis Nemesis holster...

Re: 45 caliber sizes

I've been using the same powder load for 230 and 250gr bullets for .45 Colt loads for quite a while. I don't recall ever loading ACP with 250 gr. If I did, I'd probably shoot them in my ACP cylinder for the Blackhawk. I've gotten good results with 200 and 230 gr ACP loads in my 1911's and haven't b...

Re: 45 caliber sizes

I don't load 45 ACP for semi-automatic pistols, all those bullets there are for my revolvers. I have been loading 45 ACP for my Smith & Wesson Governor revolver which uses moon clips.

45 caliber sizes

I have a technical question concerning 45 caliber handguns, and the size of the bullets I reload. I am wondering what the consequences are of loading the below listed sized 45 caliber bullets in either a 45 ACP handgun or a 45 Long Colt revolver. Here are the three bullets I have and I am wondering ...

Re: Bullseye powder

I sort of like Bullseye powder, because it seems to have a wide range of loading options. Although, my primary go to powder is Winchester 231. W231 seems to burn clean and does a nice job. I load most everything with 231 including light Magnum loads. My go-to Magnum powder is w296 for those real ear...

Bullseye powder

Anybody in here used Bullseye powder for your handgun loading? If not what powder is your favorite? And why?

Re: First post of 2018, first since Christmas!

I purchased a S&W Governor. I had to send it back to Smith & Wesson because of light strikes resulting in Failure to fire. It's still at Smith & Wesson but anxious to get it back.

Ammo prices

Ammo prices seem to be coming down a little bit, especially when you find them on sale. I bought 10 boxes of Remington 9mm for $8.79 per box at Dunhams.
On another note, I purchased a Smith & Wesson 829 44 magnum this summer. Great shooting gun and love it.

Re: BUTTON RETAINING SCREW

I just used a eye glasses repair kit screwdriver for mine, it seemed to work well. What bothers me is that it appeared to be blue Loctite'd originally, and that's what I used to secure it back in this time. If it comes out again I am considering Super Glue to keep it in place. Other than this issue ...

BUTTON RETAINING SCREW

I happened upon a YouTube video describing a potential problem with the Ruger LCR. It showed an issue with the button retaining screw in that it backs out unknowingly through time. The shock of firing the revolver evidently loosens it to a point where it falls out and causes other parts too fall off...
