  1. Wondering if anyone has one of these sitting in the basement just gathering dust? I dug out my 10mm Glock G-20 from the bowels of a safe and have decided to fiddle with it some. Added a Lone Wolf 6" barrel and plan on trying different loads. The novelty has already worn off of winter and I'll finish up my CAS yearly reloading in a week or so. Need something else to fill some time, otherwise will have to start on the home honeydew's.


    Anyhow, appreciate if someone has this stuff they are willing to part with.


    Trying a bump to top.

  2. Badger - From the SASS Shooters handbook - Compiled and Edited for SASS By The Range Operations Committee, Version 21.8, February 1, 2016. This is copied from the Ammunition Section of the handbook:Revolver and rifle ammunition may not be jacketed, semi-jacketed, plated, gas checked, or copper washed. It must be all lead. Molydisulfide, polymer coated bullets, or equivalents are acceptable.”

  3. I've been a contributing member of the NRA since 1962. They send me mail requests for donations at least every month, plus numerous phone calls which I have on call block. I consider it hounding. If I did not agree with their overall goals, they would have been totally dropped by me many years ago. No such issues with SASS.

  4. I marched in the 1953 Eisenhower Inaugural parade with the Washington, DC McKinley High School Jr. ROTC cadets. We carried Springfield 1903's with chrome bayonets. They were switched out next year for M1's. The 03's were a much nicer drill rifle. It was the high point of my scanty military career. I still have my sabre from my lofty position as Company C Captain, as officers had to buy them (got it used for $15). When I was a Master Sgt., we were issued drill swords that were stamped "US 1862." Wonder what they are worth now? Anyhow it was a long march down Pennsylvania Avenue from behind the Capital to way past the White House. Luckily it was a nice day.

  5. Lumpy Gritz - I also installed Wolf mag springs at the same time, forgot that I ordered them with the spring assembly. Did not solve the problem. I was thinking about a 24 # spring, but just not worth fooling with. This is the only Glock I've ever owned that's fussy and not totally reliable. It works fine with Armscorp and Remington ammo, so I'll just give the Underwood away.

  6. My Glock 20 works fine with Armscorp 180 FMJ's, but not with Underwood 180's. It cycles the slide too fast, trapping the ejecting brass. I've tried a Wolf 22lb spring setup, but it still does it. I don't reload for this critter as it is just a plinking gun for me. I shoot a box of 50 every now and then. Can get the Armscorp's for about .40 cents each, so reloading is just not in my current picture, considering I'd have to get the kit for my 550 at about $150 for the setup. I do keep an eye out for a used kit; no luck yet.

  7. Pat Riot - Tried again (I use AOL) and got the following after playing some spam games - "click on the store fronts," guess that AOL is a no-no for them, very user unfriendly for a sales organization:

  8. The Lyman Reloading Handbook, 49th Addition Ninth Printing, published by Lyman Products Corporation, Middletown, CT, January 2014, lists a Relative Burn Rate Chart in Appendix D (page 458): Bullseye (Alliant) is #4, Titewad (Hodgdon) is #5 of 114 powders listed. Close enough to be a substitute.

  9. The older version is double action, while the new one is striker fired. For pocket carry, I prefer the old one which is like a DAO revolver aka Smith J frame. Don't need a light trigger pocket carry gun if I ever need to pull it.

  10. I'll be shooting with Humphry Hooks' crew at the NRA in Fairfax, VA in their nice warm indoor range. Full CAS, including shotguns.


    Hoping that 2017 be an improvement over 2016 for everyone. Happy New Year.

  11. I shot with a guy at the Waldorf, MD club (Potomac Rangers) in the early 2000's who shot an Evans. He was having to have brass custom made at about $3 a pop until Starline started making .44 Super Mag. brass at 39 cents each as .44 Mag. did not work. He had a lot of really neat guns, pair of Colt Bluntlines, etc. Dressed like a RR Engineer and lived in VA. I believe he was a retired Marine. The Evans was really tricky to load and to show clear. Being around it was worth the hassle. At the time, there were a few available in the area for about $700.
