    Casting your own bullets

    It was sunny and almost 60 degrees today, so I figured that I'd cast up a mess of bullets. I started with used wheel weights. You can get those from a tire store or a garage that works on tires. The place I get them from sells me a large 5-gallon bucket full for about $30. Wheel weights are just...

    Handloaders: Anyone use Titegroup for 9mm?

    I had a one-pound can of Hodgdon Titegroup pistol powder, so I thought I'd work up a load for 9mm. I used a Nosler 124 grain JHP, Winchester cases trimmed to 0.749", CCI #500 primers, and an OAL of 1.140". The starting load was listed at 3.6 grains for a velocity of 957 fps, and the maximum load...

    Gun Range Day - 11/5/19

    Beautiful day for a trip to the public range: Sunny and a high of 33 degrees today. I found a good deal on 500-round bricks of Aguila .22 Super Extra ammo at $25 per brick, so I bought 5 of them. It has a 40 grain solid point bullet that's rated at 1,255 feet per second, and is made in Mexico...

    A mediocre day at the range is better than a good day anywhere else

    I've had this 1978 Ruger Standard .22 pistol for about 10 years now. Iron sights are the shits, so I picked up a scope mount and a used Burris FastFire II red-dot reflex sight at the gun show two weekends ago. The mount cost me $5.00 and I gave $15 for the sight. I got to sight it in this...

    An ordinary day at the gun range is better than a great day doing anything else

    I decided to take a range day this morning, since I've been reloading quite alot of ammunition. I took a 30-06, a WW2 Japanese 6.5mmx50 Arisaka, a .44 magnum revolver, and a 9mm pistol. A good range day requires alot of stuff, so here it was loaded in the back of the car... The first firearm...

    Children of the Parkland Tragedy Vilified for Speaking Out and Condemned as Phonies

    Question: Who would dare, who has the temerity, who has the viciousness in them to target distraught, children who survived a school shooting and are desperate for adults to stop the killing, with a smear campaign? Who is willing to join in the chorus of voices advancing the absurd claim that...

    Happy Michael Brown Day!

    It's been exactly 3 years since the Gentle Giant assaulted someone. Way to go! I think today bars should have a happy hour "Michael Brown special": 6 shots for the price of 1. Don't worry, death is only a "social construct" and I'm sure Ferguson's favorite resident still self-identifies as...
