  1. NM, that's the 3-1" bbl
  2. Brownells https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#search/shield+rebate/15b90efdb48ad6c6
  3. Was that maybe PSA?
  4. Last Tuesday. Planned to go this morning which is my usual practice but since there's a NASCAR race in town it's raining like Noah's last days.
  5. +1 for Gore-tex. I've used it since the mid 70's and it's hard to beat for prolonged wear out in the elements.
  6. 17 or 617
  7. So I've done a little work on the gun with the help of Numrich. New barrel, bushing, and link. Springs, firing pin and replica grips. Soaked and cleaned the weapon but haven't altered the finish in any way. Should be ready for a range trip once I hand load a few moderately charged rounds.
  8. I picked up a full size and a compact years ago. Sold the full size and kept the compact. Not a bad gun except for those crappy trapezoidal sights. I put a standard sight on my compact and I can actually hit the target now...lol.
  9. I've got a couple of Tauruses (Tauri?), a Steyr. Kahr, and some CZ's
  10. Well I know I'd like to see a conservative media outlet that actually realizes it's no longer 1965. Hopefully this is a start.
  11. But I have to ask, other firms manage to ship with no problems. I wonder if whomever bought Wideners was just eliminating the competition.
  12. Right after the buyout.
  13. Wideners no longer sells powder or primers. Here's a portion of an email reply I got concerning this. Thank you for reaching out to us at Wideners! Unfortunately, we have not been offering powder or primers for the past couple of months. We continued to face higher costs to comply with regulations around the storage, sale, and shipping of powder and primers. You’ve probably noticed the increase in hazardous materials shipping fees, but that’s just a small part of the costs. We also faced greater local, state, and federal regulations that placed a difficult burden on retailers like us, who focus on serving the small reloader. It was a hard decision to stop selling powder and primers because we have sold them for so long, and especially because several of us are avid reloaders ourselves. However, we will still offer bullets, casings, and pre-primed casings with the same friendly customer service our customers expect and deserve. We are also already going to work, expanding our selection of loaded ammunition to ensure we can be of help for shooters who enjoy every corner of the passion we all share.
