  1. About 500 rds and she runs perfect, I installed a Geissele SDE, and an SB tactical SB3 stock which required the LWRC stock adapter ($100.00) the gun looks like new and is a tough one to get rid of but I currently have the long range bug and it's an expensive game. Asking $3,400 which is the price of what the gun and added items retail for. I unfortunately purchased when This gun was selling for 4k without the added brace and trigger so my loss is your gain. I have all original parts including original trigger, and foam cut out. I might still have the box.

  3. When I first started reloading our rental house was a bit small. I mounted my press and powder unit to a board, and routed some slots to hold my scale and ammo boxes. When it was time to load I clamped that board to the kitchen table or coffee table, and took it down when done (or the wife started bitching). Now that board is (semi) permanently to the workbench in my shed. Not perfect, but it got me loading earlier.

  4. I was thinking of this a few days ago. Years ago (80's) when I was a very young Christian, and not very experienced, I was asked to join with 2 other guys to go and talk to a man (fellow Christian) who had left his middle aged wife for a very young coed. They were living together at that time. Others had tried to reach him, but were unable as he was ducking them. I went more or less as a supporter in body. We went to his work place and confronted him by surprise. We stood there, and he talked with us, mostly just chit chat. The longer we chatted I started thinking someone needs to bring

  5. A.J. I have read and re-read this thread and I really enjoy the down to earth conversation. We had a young man who ended up being our pastor's grand-daughters husband. He got saved and baptized and you could just see him growing in his faith. One day in a morning prayer time, when he prayed it was something like this, Hey Jesus and he talks with Jesus like me and you might talk. It was really refreshing, because I think too many times we want to paint God as a being so far away, but he isn't. I have this idea that God is leaning down cupping his hand to his ear listening for all of us to have

  6. I started off reloading because I'm the type that enjoys doing everything myself by hand. I've never really noticed a significant cost savings except for. 50 BMG which I have to say is substantial. Let me know what you need, chances are I might have some of your missing components/powder. I standardized a lot of my plinking recipes a couple years back and have been sitting on about 20 random powders that I know longer use. Maybe I should just take inventory and post it all up I'm willing to give most of it up free of charge.

  8. I purchased an RMR on sale from SWFA back in September and they ended up putting it on back order. I got one from somewhere else but SWFA just emailed me saying they now have it in stock and offered it to me for the same sale price. I don't need another RMR but I wanted to offer it to you all if anyone wants an RMR for sale. The price is $418.26 They said they would give me to the end of the week to let them know so please just let me know in the next couple days if interested!

  10. Howdy, I thought I would post this just in case someone has that question rolling around in their noggin. I loaded .357 magnum with158 gr. Hornady XTP HP for hunting and defense. It cost me a tad less than $30 for 100 rounds. Ammoseek had 158gr Hornady XTP HP for $174.99 for 50 or $349.98 for the same thing I loaded for less than $30. Granted it took my time to do the work, but most hobbies like fishing, golf, hunting etc won't pay you $319.98 per day. Plus it was a nice rainy day and I was dry and all by myself.

  13. I work at Academy part time and we get ammo in regularly. The problem is the guys standing in line and buying the ammo up to resale. I know it's capitalism but it still annoys the crap out of me. If those people would stop ammo would become much more available, a lot of times we are our own worst enemy.

  14. I am planning to vacation in Southern Florida next week and would like to take a pistola with me, as I'm planning on spending some time solo fishing in the Everglades. I've flown quite a bit, but have never taken a gun with me. In the times that we live in I don't want to make a mistake, so I wanted to review everything befrore hand. IF it matters I will be flying Spirit Airlines. I've reached out to them because I could not find any specific information pertaininhg to checking a firearm on their website. I plan to print out the TSA policy, along with anything Spirit sends me and carrying

This is currently wearing an A2 rifle stock with buffer, spring, etc. i don’t really know how the market looks right now for these things...not looking to profit on this. I just don’t really care for this type of firearm anymore and hope to recover what I probably have invested in it. im asking $300, obo. Buyer must have TN ID and sign simple bill of sale.

  18. You got it all except that the ammo doesn't have to be in the original box. You can use any ammo box. https://www.tsa.gov/travel/transporting-firearms-and-ammunition Small arms ammunition (up to .75 caliber and shotgun shells of any gauge) must be packaged in a fiber (such as cardboard), wood, plastic, or metal box specifically designed to carry ammunition and declared to your airline. Ammunition may be transported in the same hard-sided, locked case as a firearm if it has been packed as described above. You cannot use firearm magazines or clips for packing ammunition unless

  19. $1500. Trade for guns/Ammo/silver/gold. I bought this off my buddy a while ago and lost interest in fixing it up. He bought it in 2006ish when I bought mine so we could terrorize the streets. It’s been sitting since 2017 & will need all the basic repairs associated with time. Grips, chain, carbs rebuilt, etc etc. It has a 626cc wiseco piston, Ricky Stator, huge Baja lights, new gripper/stepped seat, custom header, super trap, & some newer graphics. It looks pretty good but it’s been ridden hard & put away wet. Motor is solid, piston has maybe 50-60 hours, valve train & cam cha

  20. Pop Pop, that was a great story, especially the ending when this man met his maker!! That has always given me problems about what to say, but like you said pray and God will give you the words. You know when you guys first started talking to him, it was like you were discussing the weather, and football and everyone was hedging around the subject at hand. If any of you want to hear a great street evangelist, his name is Ray Comfort and he teamed up with Kirk Cameron and their business is The way of the Master, very uplifting and gives you lots of ways to reach people for the Lord.

  21. That’s pretty much it. Only thing I would add is that make sure the box is sufficiently strong sided enough that it cannot easily be pried open from the sides. My M&P came with a good enough case, the one I got with my CDHP doesn’t work as well. If the case isn’t sufficiently secure, you can be turned away.

  32. And he will want to load another 5K or so. Lock n load, don't worry about how long it takes to get the powder dispenser set. Just remember you are making custom ammunition, not the run of the mill that we buy just to get by. Just double check yourself and don't assume anything. I won't load if someone stops by unless I am teaching them to load. If you stop by to chat I will finish the round I am working on and turn around and talk as long as you want. No computer, no T.V., no distractions. I like to stay focused and it is a good thing to forget all your every day worries. It is a fun hobby do

  35. These posts always make me chuckle. You may be saving on costs per round, but most of us end up shooting more. So we really don't save any money at all. Of course these days with the Covid, shortages and high costs, most of us are saving quite a bit because we aren't shooting at all.

  40. My wife and I moved to TN two years ago from Washington. I grew up there and miss the [real] mountains and saltwater, but Tennessee suits us so much better. People here have been friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The political climate suits me FAR better than what Washington has turned into. But it sure does rain a lot here! We bought 20 wooded acres and built a log home. It cost a lot more than we anticipated, but in the end we think it's worth it. Resale means nothing to us, as we expect to remain here until we die. Of course I expected my last place in Washington to be ou

  43. I have a Bianchi Model 82 leather OWB for my G19/G26. It has their "Carry Lock" retention. There's a catch that holds the trigger guard and a lever /switch right below it to release it. I like it well enough, though I usually carry a single stack (Kahr PM9, G43, or Shield) IWB in a Remora holster.

  44. No, that is NOT capitalism, it's profiteering. Capitalism assumes adding value. People who wait on line to buy ammo, then sell it two hours later are contributing mightily to the whole problem. At best it's unethical.

  46. I am buying so I can shoot. But I am sure there are some re-sellers. Academy has kept their prices reasonable. I think I have paid between $0.24 and $0.30 per round for 9mm. As long as folks on Gunbroker continue to pay stupid amounts for ammo (near $1.00 per round fir 9mm) people will resell.

  48. Then at this point I say do what you will, but I would HIGHLY recommend that you do not mix the vagaries of the ATF’s NFA rules with TN’s rules on carry permits. Carry a handgun that is undoubtedly a handgun where no argument can be made that it’s not a handgun. Not that it’s a handgun because you removed one part or it’s a day that starts with T. Attempting to walk a fine line of “just legal enough” doesn’t mix well with self defense laws. The game you’re attempting to play here doesn’t ever work out well for the folks without unlimited money for attorneys (the government)
