  1. SWshooter

    Its hot

    I wear camoflaged bug proof pants when it gets hot around here. They're just light weight netting like you would use for a head net.
  2. My boy used to sit on my lap at the loading bench. I just limited myself to simple tasks, like decapping cases before tumbling, or running bullets through the sizer. You can even recap cases, but when it comes to actually assembling the rounds, do it after juniors in bed.
  3. I have an Adams kit on my little M-4 house gun, I like it, I wouldn't be afraid to try one if I were you. You can save the roll pin. 8)
  4. I'm legal to carry a Glock with a 20 rd mag, AR-15 with 30 rd mag, HK-91 with 50 rd drum, but God forbid I should be caught with a spring operated pocket knife, the Trailboss bowie with the 9" blade is OK though.
  5. The most important is to have good reloading manuals and use them. Most seasoned reloaders have dozens. Always verify load data with at least two known good sources. Never trust unknown reloads or components. Never trust an opened powder container. I have two scales and often double check loads on both to verify I didn't set the scale wrong. I highly recommend using the loading block method when beginning, that way you can visually inspect the powder level before seating bullets. I buy a lot from Midway, I've also used Midsouth and Natchez. Probably best to buy components from the big box stores to start out . If you can buy powder locally you're usually better off as the Haz-mat fee is pretty steep for a couple pounds of powder. Be careful with primers, they are more powerful than their size would indicate. I would always wear eye protection while reloading. No smoking, no drinking, clean up powder spills immediately. If you want to see something impressive, dump a pound of powder on the ground in a safe area and set it off. Don't squat over it with a book of matches either, give yourself a good 10 ft of clearance. Don't allow yourself to be distracted while loading. Don't allow yourself to be distracted while loading. Don't allow yourself to be distracted while loading. Y'up that's what I said, Don't allow yourself to be distracted while loading.
  6. If you think most LE's receive really excellent firearms training you are in for a shock. Our local Sheriffs Academy gives two weeks of firearms training to people who have never fired a handgun, or any other firearm before, and then they are considered qualified to be LE's. Just remember, ammo purchases must be approved by accountants, the shooting instruction must be approved by lawyers. Scary, isn't it.
  7. The reason the M&P is harder to take down is because so many cops had ND's forgetting to unload before disassembly, that a lot of departments began to look for pistols that didn't require you to pull the trigger to disassemble. Why is it S&W's fault that MA requires the gun to be screwed up before you can buy it in MA.
  8. You'all have spent way too much time in the sun, or your smokin' the stink bait again. You spent $300 on a fishin' pole!!! You could have spent that money on something really useful like a digital powder dispenser.
  9. If your planning on shooting lead bullets, than a cut rifled barrel should be number one on your agenda. A light weight connector for match work, plus an oversized slide release and mag release. A steel guide rod is also very good as the plastic ones get scuffed up pretty quickly. If you want to really get a high tech race gun than sell the glock and buy a 1911, the polymer frame on a glock is too limiting for a real race gun.
  10. I would do a lot of shopping around for parts, Brownells is not the most economical source. If your not in a rush you can save a lot of money buying stuff used and on sale.
  11. Realguns.com has an ongoing series on building a 700 also, using the hand tools available from Brownells.
  12. I'm very interested in how it shoots, keep us posted.
