    I think something is missing or barrel is not fully seated. Check against a schematic and the forearm spacers below.

    While wood does expand and contract with heat and humidity it wouldn't be anywhere near that much on a short piece of wood. My guess is you're missing a part - perhaps a spacer?

    So I have a bad habit of buying guns, sticking them in the safe and not shooting them. About 1.5-2 years ago I picked up a mid-60's Winchester model 70 in .375 H&H. I finally put a scope on it and took it out yesterday to sight it in. I am not very recoil sensitive. This was my fist time shooting .375 H&H and it thumped me a little more than I was expecting. My shoulder is sore today.Got her sighted in and back into the safe she goes. If I get lucky and get an elk tag this is the gun I will use. About 2.5 years ago I picked up a Montana X2 in .300 Win Mag. Scoped her and got her sighted in yesterday also. I love accurate rifles and I really love this one. After shooting the .375 this one did't seem to kick at all. Clover leafed my last three shot group at 100. Should have taken a pic but didn't think about it. It was a little warm yesterday but it was good to get out and shoot some.

    Stole this from another list I'm on, had me laughing out loud. Why We Shoot Deer in The Wild: (A letter from someone who wants to remain anonymous, who farms, writes well and actually tried this) I had this idea that I could rope a deer, put it in a stall, feed it up on corn for a couple of weeks, then kill it and eat it. The first step in this adventure was getting a deer. I figured that, since they congregate at my cattle feeder and do not seem to have much fear of me when we are there (a bold one will sometimes come right up and sniff at the bags of feed while I am in the back of the truck not 4 feet away), it should not be difficult to rope one, get up to it and toss a bag over its head (to calm it down) then hog tie it and transport it home. I filled the cattle feeder then hid down at the end with my rope. The cattle, having seen the roping thing before, stayed well back. They were not having any of it. After about 20 minutes, my deer showed up-- 3 of them. I picked out a likely looking one, stepped out from the end of the feeder, and threw my rope. The deer just stood there and stared at me. I wrapped the rope around my waist and twisted the end so I would have a good hold. The deer still just stood and stared at me, but you could tell it was mildly concerned about the whole rope situation. I took a step towards it, it took a step away. I put a little tension on the rope, and then received an education. The first thing that I learned is that, while a deer may just stand there looking at you funny while you rope it, they are spurred to action when you start pulling on that rope. That deer EXPLODED. The second thing I learned is that pound for pound, a deer is a LOT stronger than a cow or a colt. A cow or a colt in that weight range I could fight down with a rope and with some dignity. A deer-- no Chance. That thing ran and bucked and twisted and pulled. There was no controlling it and certainly no getting close to it. As it jerked me off my feet and started dragging me across the ground, it occurred to me that having a deer on a rope was not nearly as good an idea as I had originally imagined. The only upside is that they do not have as much stamina as many other animals. A brief 10 minutes later, it was tired and not nearly as quick to jerk me off my feet and drag me when I managed to get up. It took me a few minutes to realize this, since I was mostly blinded by the blood flowing out of the big gash in my head. At that point, I had lost my taste for corn-fed venison. I just wanted to get that devil creature off the end of that rope. I figured if I just let it go with the rope hanging around its neck, it would likely die slow and painfully somewhere. At the time, there was no love at all between me and that deer. At that moment, I hated the thing, and I would venture a guess that the feeling was mutual. Despite the gash in my head and the several large knots where I had cleverly arrested the deer's momentum by bracing my head against various large rocks as it dragged me across the ground, I could still think clearly enough to recognize that there was a small chance that I shared some tiny amount of responsibility for the situation we were in. I didn't want the deer to have to suffer a slow death, so I managed to get it lined back up in between my truck and the feeder - a little trap I had set before hand...kind of like a squeeze chute. I got it to back in there and I started moving up so I could get my rope back. Did you know that deer bite? They do! I never in a million years would have thought that a deer would bite somebody, so I was very surprised when ..... I reached up there to grab that rope and the deer grabbed hold of my wrist. Now, when a deer bites you, it is not like being bit by a horse where they just bite you and slide off to then let go. A deer bites you and shakes its head--almost like a pit bull. They bite HARD and it hurts. The proper thing to do when a deer bites you is probably to freeze and draw back slowly. I tried screaming and shaking instead. My method was ineffective. It seems like the deer was biting and shaking for several minutes, but it was likely only several seconds. I, being smarter than a deer (though you may be questioning that claim by now), tricked it. While I kept it busy tearing the tendons out of my right arm, I reached up with my left hand and pulled that rope loose. That was when I got my final lesson in deer behavior for the day. Deer will strike at you with their front feet. They rear right up on their back feet and strike right about head and shoulder level, and their hooves are surprisingly sharp... I learned a long time ago that, when an animal -like a horse --strikes at you with their hooves and you can't get away easily, the best thing to do is try to make a loud noise and make an aggressive move towards the animal. This will usually cause them to back down a bit so you can escape. This was not a horse. This was a deer, so obviously, such trickery would not work. In the course of a millisecond, I devised a different strategy. I screamed like a woman and tried to turn and run. The reason I had always been told NOT to try to turn and run from a horse that paws at you is that there is a good chance that it will hit you in the back of the head. Deer may not be so different from horses after all, besides being twice as strong and 3 times as evil, because the second I turned to run, it hit me right in the back of the head and knocked me down. Now, when a deer paws at you and knocks you down, it does not immediately leave. I suspect it does not recognize that the danger has passed. What they do instead is paw your back and jump up and down on you while you are laying there crying like a little girl and covering your head. I finally managed to crawl under the truck and the deer went away. So now I know why when people go deer hunting they bring a rifle with a scope......to sort of even the odds!! All these events are true so help me God...An Educated Farmer

    The more I'm messing with this pistol, the more I like it. Someone needs to come buy one so I can shoot it.

    Bringing this thread back to life. The newest reviews on this pistol is pretty good. I was really liking everything about the Stoeger STR-9 until I pulled it's trigger. It was terrible. But this Masada is very sweet. People are even praising the trigger pull on it. I am trying to not buy anymore polymer guns and getting back to metal guns but like others have said , Israel makes great firearms.

    I think the 375 thumped harder than the 458 or maybe I am just not remembering correctly. I was shooting the 375 from an awkward position with an improvised rest. That could be why it felt so hard.

    This is probably the biggest class action lawsuit in history and the reality is it is nothing more that that, a class action lawsuit. That means by the time everyone gets on board you might get a buck or two. No one is going to get a check for $125. As has been pointed out only $31M has been set aside for direct payment. That covers 248,000 of the 147M people affected. As more people sign up, that pool of money diminishes and it doesn’t matter if you sign up today or in the next few months. If you file for costs associated with your time trying to unscrew the damage...that is also capped at $31M total for everyone who files. BTW, all this information can be found in the FAQ of that third party website. Oh, and the lawyers are getting up to $80,500,000 out of the total $380M (roughly) settlement. I am all for for sticking it to Equifax but the reality is little will change.

    What were you results in swapping the slides? Were you able to get the Brownells slide to function on your factory glock frame and vice versa? From what I have seen the vast majority of issues with these come from the guide rod channel not being cut deep enough. Do you have any pictures looking down the channel to see how deep you went?

    I had a Bond Arms Derringer....shot good, like Rob Said....410 pdx loads felt like catching a punch...I didn't find the trigger all that bad. Well built and beautiful gun but more of a novelty than anything else. Heavier than most any compact firearms and your only getting 2 shots...doesn't really make sense for anything but fun range toy or night stand gun and even then do you really only want 2 shots? I think these were more popular before Taurus came out with their judge line and 410 revolvers weren't so common.

    I was giving out school supplies to military families today. (About 1000 kids) A mom with several kids came in with a special needs son. He was obviously in sensory overload and mom was having issue taking care of him and her other children. The entire room stopped. You could see how uncomfortable everyone was and how some disapproved of how mom handled it. I've been in the same situation most of the times I'm in public with my daughter. My daughter is also blind so she tends to get excited easily. I always feel guilty for interrupting someone's night out and putting them in that situation, but I also want to make the most of the time we will have with her. If you see us out, please don't hold your breath. Your child can't catch it. You don't have to feel sorry for us. It's okay to ask questions. I'm not going to freak out. I only break down when I'm alone. I wish I would have hugged that mom and told her it was okay.

    They made a peep sight for them too. It just replaced the dovetailed rear notched sght. I have a spare barrelled receiver with one on it. Before anyone askes, I'm not looking to get sell it. My eyes are getting old too, just like the rest of you!

    I mean that I'm a poor. I can't afford to shoot the almighty space whale killer that is the .45. I've repeatedly asked you not to share our private conversations. I don't know if we can continue our friendship.
