  1. I'm just gonna leave this one here....... https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2022/04/19/smith-meth-son-diy-gun/
  2. If you’re up my way at any stage, I’ll measure the chamber for you. Bring a couple of the bullets you’re using.
  3. Be better to measure the CBTO and load to that length buddy. You may not be giving up as much case volume as you think.
  4. Congrats buddy, it looks great!
  5. Nice job and great value! They do say a rifle takes on the characteristics of it’s owner
  6. That's a bit of a length of string question TBH. It depends on the brand, how many calibers you want to load, match or standard dies, etc. etc. I have a Hornady LnL which was about $600 including a couple of die sets and shell plates, but that was a few years ago before prices of everything went nuts. My buddy bought a Dillon about 18 months ago and paid more than that for just the press. We both now load multiple calibers and multiple thousand rounds per year. Both presses are ultra reliable so it really comes down to preference on brands. I can see advantages and disadvantages to both. Apart from a Lee Loadall for 12 gauge, I don't really have experience of other brands so can't comment.
  7. I just got an email from Glockstore this morning and they are giving discounts on slide milling and Cerakoting. Still very expensive though at $441 for the cut and $135 for the cerakote. Would nearly be as cheap to sell your current G45 and buy a new MOS for that money. The code for the discount is Kote10 if you're interested.

    FTE Issues

    I remember buying mounting screw from Battlewerx when I fitted my G45 with a Holosun. They do a whole range of screws for different applications.
  9. Here you go: https://www.capitol.tn.gov/Bills/112/Bill/HB2521.pdf
  10. You don't really need to buy a guide TBH. There are several websites with detailed info and practice tests you can use. I already knew stuff like the phonetic alphabet, electrical/mechanical safety, and the circuit diagrams, the only bit I struggled with (and got wrong in the exam) were remembering things like which portions of bands were CW only. I still scored 33/35.
  11. When I hunt I usually have no cell reception so I carry a Baofeng handheld 8W with a 15" whip antenna. I can hit the repeater from 7 miles away on VHF, even down in the hollers. The receivers on the repeaters are pretty sensitive. The Technician Ham license is pretty easy to get. I studied about 3 hours and passed. If I can do that then anyone else could probably get it with an hour's study!!!
  12. I picked up some of this earlier this morning. Thank you for the heads-up @papa61!
  13. I would probably do a bullet seating length test first. Run a set of loads increasing the depth by .010" each time, beginning just off the lands at minimum powder. Once you have a seating depth, run a Satterlee test to find a decent powder charge at that depth. I've been amazed at the difference seating depth and charge makes but I've never loaded for something that old mind you. You could also very well be right that something has come loose in the scope.
  14. Another interesting story on this one. https://www.wisn.com/article/mpd-guns-fired-on-their-own-twice-in-6-months/38097781
  15. Maybe one of those shots where they fire into the camera? Director seems to have been standing behind the cinematographer. Either way, a family somewhere is now missing a loved one. RIP.
  16. That’s the beauty of Capitalism. If a profitable market exists then someone will address it. Primers are beginning to appear again now, albeit at much higher prices. Brass, powder, and bullets have been available through all of this, just in lesser quantities. Eventually supply and demand will equalize and prices will reduce. We are seeing this beginning to happen with ammo as supplies increase. All of this is based on no more unexpected upheavals in the market though, and I would never bet against something like that happening. Two years ago consumer ammunition consumption was ~8 Billion rounds per annum. Depending on who you believe, current demand is anywhere up to ~12 Billion rounds. A 50% increase in demand is not easily supplied in the short term. Eventually demand will drop to a lower level, hoarding will slow, and supply will increase. Capitalism - the worst form of economy, except for all the other ones!
  17. I did find these articles but they're several months old. https://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2021/01/covid-19-antibodies-transmit-moms-babies-during-pregnancy https://news.weill.cornell.edu/news/2021/04/pregnant-women-who-receive-covid-19-mrna-vaccines-pass-antibodies-to-their-babies
  18. Glad to see you\re doing better, that's a scary experience!!
