Re: Alternative to safes?

I use a surplus 50 cal metal ammo can. Easily portable and common as dirt. The hasp can accept a padlock. Chain through the handle and around the immovable object of choice; then padlock. Makes a racket when you move it, so there's a built-in alarm. Separate the stored pistols with old socks or simi...

Re: Holster suggestions for Radom P64.

Walther PPK and Makarov holsters will work just fine.

Re: New to P64s and jazzed!

I would like to have one Curly, but living in Marylandistan, a special license is required to buy "regulated firearms"(handguns) which the state uses as a handgun registry. Being a freedom loving patriot, I refuse to comply so I can only purchase C&R handguns for now. In a few more years, some will...

Re: Any advice on loading the 7.62X25 for my Tokarev's

Here are my go-to loads:
(all using new Starline brass, CCI primers and 5.6 gr of HP-38):

85 gr. PPU JHP: good; fairly accurate
100 gr Hornady SJ: Surprisingly accurate and mild recoil.

Re: MUCH MO BETTA

Try loading five rounds instead of six. Cured the stovepiping for me.

Re: slide peening

I found that loading five rounds at a time instead of six solves the stovepipe problem. There are threads here that discuss the problem; it has to do with the feed lip dimensions of "new" vs, "old" magazines.

Re: PPU bulged cases.

I've been shooting PPU for some time. Every once in a while expect to get a hot load. I've found Red Army is good and consistent, as is Academy's Monarch. If you want to reload, Starline makes Makarov brass for your 9x18, and Missouri Bullets sells a Spetsnaz 95 gr bullet. I also found coated bullet...

Re: Magazines for new owners

I've found Academy's Monarch house brand is the cheapest, yet works consistently and as well as anyone else's.
