Funny how you dont see any mention of this

Some interesting facts...we're OK for now, but that's changing When Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone: United States -- Muslim 1.0% Australia -- Muslim 1.5% Canada -- Muslim 1.9% China -- Muslim 1%...

Problem with my P64. (my fault)

Those metal tabs on the slide are the rails that ride in the groves on the frame...the ends can get gouged up like that when you take the slide off the frame and the slide rails beat against the frame (ummm) rails. Its ok, wont hurt anything.

Trigger malfunction

I'm glad you got the first problem fixed! Strange about the trigger....do you mean it doesn't move at all? Or that the trigger moves like it should but doesn't engage the hammer as if the safety was on? If its the former, then I'm not sure what the issue could be. If its the latter then the disconne...

Trigger malfunction

It sounds to me that the transfer bar/trigger return spring has come out of its engagement with the transfer bar. This is very easy to do with the slide off the frame and it is kind of a PITA to get that spring back on the bar. Here is an assembly guide made buy one of the members (TTH) here http://...

9x19 to 9x18

The .380 cases are shorter and narrower, they wouldn't have been sized properly if it all. It has happened to me on my progressive and I just sort them, pull the .380's and save the components. I don’t think you really want to be shooting 115 or 125 gr bullets out of your .380. I wouldn't think the...

Keep an eye on Lyman's factory seconds and close-outs section on their website, I scored a "factory seconds" Universal Case Trimmer for $30 plus shipping direct from Lyman. It came with all the pilots and everything...the only defect I could see is a small chip in the paint. I have a question for an...

Carrying Tips

I'm not trying to steer you away from the beautiful gun bearer idea but I would pick up a keltec 32 or a p3at with a good pocket holster.

Suncoast Gun Show

Speaking of pitted bores, anyone have any tips on bore lapping (not fire lapping)? I read something about using an undersized bronze brush with an over sized patch rapped around it with the lapping compound worked into the patch. Make 10 passes with that patch, clean bore and go to next smallest gri...

Suncoast Gun Show

I went to the show in Tampa this past Sunday, place was a friggin' mad house! I have never been to a gun show that was so crowded. I did pick up a CZ52 from Shona (SSME) and a pox of cheapo Chinese ammo for it from Shooters. Some light pitting in the bore but the decocker appears to be working prope...
