  1. The USPSA matches at ORSA are also open to the public[ 3ed Sat of each month]. A short safety meeting before the match begins is done for new to USPSA shooters. If that shooter lets someone on their squad the other squad members are really glad to assist you during the match.
  2. Can you get any decent prices there? I would rather buy locally, but I'd rather not put somebodies child through school.
  3. +1 You need to learn what's happening in each of the dies, what are the characteristics of each of the powders, bla bla bla. You need at least one commercial reloading manual and as many as you can get from the powder manufactures. The commercial ones are about $30 the manufacturers ones are free. Read a lot and ask a lot of questions. Remember, the only dumb question is the one you didn't ask.
  4. Welcome to the group. The 552 is a quality rifle at a justifiable price. Beautiful wood, a nice metal finish and it shoots all three lengths of 22"s. Only problem is that most folks don't want to pay the price.
  5. Got to go to White Castle while you're there. It's the only thing we miss from North of the Mason / Dixon
  6. I'll be tickled to show my TN dl and my carry permit. I don't want to fill out receipts to continue the ATF paper trail.
  7. Don't blame the state government. Anything I hear about comes from Uncle Sam. I would rather buy a gun second hand and loose the paper trail. The day will come when ATF will knock on our door with a non request for everything we have on paper. That cold dead hands thing is really BS. And if you think the military won't be involved I've got some bridges I want to sell you. Back in the days when shotguns weren't registered ATF decided a shotgun called the street sweeper was a destructive device because it wasn't made for hunting. You had to either turn it in or get a license like the one you'd have to have for explosives. Now the gun was a real POS and I never even wanted one, but I would have to turn it in Sig Hile
  8. BTW, I use factory ammo for carry. Not that I don't trust my reloaded ammo. I just read too much about reloaded hollow points being questioned if I ever had to use my gun for protection. And a buck a shot won't break me but it would take a nick out of my wallet. Only thing that I do do is run them through my taper crimp die so the mouth of the case is crimped a little more, stops setback.
  9. Way too much like work. Hornady works for me year round. I stuffed them in my little Ruger and that in my pocket. The little thingees in the front of the hollow point will work whatever the perp is wearing. That's what they are made for.
  10. After rereading my posts I can see where you might think that way. But when the muzzle goes up 16"-18" it's time to think about what's going on.
  11. I did 16gr of Unique. Set me back in the chair too. But like anything else I've loaded with Unique, it was dirty.
  12. First time. Loaded plenty of 223, 308,30/06 in rifle.
  13. Has anyone here loaded 45/70? I'm trying, but my shoulder is giving out. I'm shooting a Marlin 1895. I'm loading star brass with Speer 300gr HP's, 55grs of Varget. According to Lyman's book top load for Varget is 63grs. I've got a 12" gong at 165 yards that I'm using for a target. I've got it set on two chains from a saw horse. When I hit it, it almost spins all the way around. The rifle has almost dislocated my shoulder. Even after I put a recoil pad on it. No signs of pressure, except my busted arm. Any suggestions?
  14. Me too, that's why I don't have a boatload of it in the back of the safe. It costs a bundle of bucks to raise a family. But it's worth every penny. I can remember 7.62x39 cases 8"s deep on the rifle range. But this is just another form of gun control Uncle Sam put on us. If it's ain't there, you can't buy it.
  15. Tickled to death with the ones I looked at at Harbor freight. But its for home use.
  16. +1 on the M&P EZ. Bought my wife the Walther P380 after she tried it at the NRA show last year. Bought her an EZ after she tried it at a gun store, she liked it better.
  17. Has anyone considered that Uncle Sam won't know if you are selling your guns without telling him exactly what you've got. I'm going to freely volunteer a list of what I've got, NOT!
  18. If you ain't reloading you're not shooting enough.
  19. YEP! There is so much to like about Tennessee and it's people that people are moving here in droves. The prices of land and homes are going to go up. But if you're some right wing radical, please stay home.
  20. Now, click your heels together three times and say "There's no place like home, there's no place like home."
  21. If I recall, the first ones came out at $1400 and a little bit. I remember when Ford came out with the Mustang. It was pretty much to combat the VW bug. It started out with a 6 cylinder engine, no radio, stick transmission, and it didn't even have a door on the glove box. If I remember right, it was the first unibody construction that entered the market. Only problem with that was it wasn't strong enough to put 4 high school football players in. OH! let me take that back. You could fit them in [barely], but you couldn't close the doors. Frame sagged too much. Later they came out with Mustangs with a 289cc engine in it. It was stronger than the 6 banger but not much. Then they came out with the real muscle cars, in [460] I think. With the right tires, you could almost get the front wheels off the ground. That is just before you snapped a rear axle or drive shaft. Ahh those were the days. That one pretty much kept up with dodges 426 heimie. [I know I didn't spell it right. What do you want from a 71 yo construction worker.]
  22. Not happy with gold dot, especially in my 380. Hole is too big for the guns to function 100%.
  23. +1 I tried other self defense type ammunition, couldn't get them to function 100% of the time. Hornady works every time. I sure don't use it for practice, It cost too much. Checked it out, It expands well.
  24. It's a great sport, and you can get into it as little or as much as you want.
