  1. Greatest thing since the invention of bubble gum. I can't remember the last time I used a rod.
  2. Oh no! The first time Colt quit offering it's AR-15 for civilian ownership I refused to buy a Colt. When they saw just how wrong they were to involve themselves in politics they had lost my attention as a gun buyer. Now they've done it again. with they're lips firmly planted on butt cheeks of the politicians I have a hard time even considering offering of the Python.

    Handgun training.

    Take the class. It's good structured training. But training is an ongoing thing. Find clubs around you that do USPSA/IDPA matches. Great bunch of people. Lots of fun. If you let somebody know that you are new, you'll get a lot of friendly help.
  4. And no, a pound of it will last as long as a show ball in the infernal region loading 308/30-06.
  5. The next time a gun show is close to you, just for giggles, check it out. I haven't found any deals there but I have found stuff I had to have. You can't save any money buying one pound of powder. Think of buying 8-24 pounds at a time. It won't go bad. Back when I was shooting USPSA open I bought a lot of 3N37. Still got a bunch. Loaded some the other week. Shot as consistent and smelled as sweet as the day I bought it 20 years ago.
  6. OK! The mag that apparently was giving me trouble was an original Para mag from Canada. It had an opening of .435 at the lips. I tried a couple of other mags today. Both were Meggar and neither gave me a hick-up in cycling[.410 ] What now?.
  7. Thanks guys. I haven't bought a new box of ammo, with the exception of the Hornady carry rounds in 25 years. But I'll go find some hardball and see how it goes. Thanks Ray
  8. The gun is an unfired Para LDA limited 2011 in stainless.. The rounda are hanging on the feed ramp, almost straight on out of the mag [14 rounds]. The only ammo I have loaded is the Montana gold stuff.
  9. I've got a problem with my new [to me] hi cap 45. I'm hoping someone with more experience with that caliber can help out. It's nose diving 3-4 times with each mag. I'm using 230 gr Montana Gold JHPs @ 1.225oal and 5gr solo 1000. I've only got .090 left before I run out of flat on the mouth of the case, so I can't go much shorter. Anybody got any suggestions?

    New Deer Rifle

    Pop Pop I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed the shooting sports over the years. I don't hunt. Can't seem to be able to draw a bead on natures beauty. Now at 72 I can't get out as much as I used to but I've still got some self resetting steel That I've killed many times over. We play a game called [fill the hole] shooting at the lake. One person shoots and the next tries to hit the same place that my bullet hit. I live in a valley so my rounds don't get out.

    OH my lord, if saving 2/3 if the price isn't enough I'll give up.

    Time to start thinking about reloading. Better , faster, cheaper.
  13. OOPS! Your right the P14-45 does take double stack mags. Holds 14 rounds
  14. Well, you all filled me in about pro mags, I appreciate it. Now one other question. Anybody got any para 45 mags sitting a drawer they'd like to sell? This gun is going to come with 2 10 rounders. If I'm going to throw trash cans at somebody, I'd like it to be a bunch of them.
