  1. Eliminating the aggravation of die set-up more than offsets the cost of toolheads, powder dies & dies!!
  2. If you have time & don't mind building the lower, PSA, has a "No Beto" multi caliber (not marked with caliber) stripper lower for $50. There is a 8-9 week lead time. Palmeto State Armory are known for their political themed lower receivers.
  3. A Frye's joke, but true, was if you have a question about some computer component was to shout out your question & a customer within earshot would answer it. Before retiring to the Battle Born State I would shop at the most convenient Frye's in the Bay Area for electronics. Never bought a TV there and shopped at COSTCO exclusively for TV's until they ended their unpublished lifetime warranty ended. I used the policy a couple of times. As I recall walking into their home entertainment dept. was like walking onto a car dealership with turn over sales model.
  4. I believe it was the 2015 legislative session that state preemption passed which mooted the Lost Wages handgun registration requirement. Repealing preemption was one of the wet dreams of the anti 2A legislators & governor voted in Nov 2018 that didn't survive the 2019 session. Prior to the 2013 legislative session you could only carry the type of firearm you qualified with, revolver or pistol. That restriction as well as the breaking the law if the concealed handgun becoming unconcealed was removed in 2013. Of course you could carry open any firearm without a CC license.
  5. Got an email from Midway that has the Lyman Brass Smith All American turret press on sale for $135.03 which is 40+% less than suggested retail. It is made of heavy cast iron. The press includes primer system & the turret holds 8 dies. Extra turrets are about $45. P.S. Amazon has it for same price & if you have Amazon Prime shipping is free.
  6. The only reason to darken the door of a Dick's would be to purchase an item that is a loss leader. And even then the discount over price at competing retailers has to be significant. In Elk Grove for firearms there is Wild Bill's Wild Old West Trading Co. & if it is like Wild Bills 2 in Carson City, NV has a huge selection of firearms in a tiny venue. I am sure it isn't as diverse as the NV location. It is in Commifornia so, there will be no "featured" AR's, AK's, H&K 91 or FAL clones plus most of the semi-auto handgun models available in states other than Massachusetts. A CA resident can't legally acquire the hottest pistol today, the Sig 365, unless you have a parent or child 21 years or older living in another state & they gift it to you. Of course you and the gifter have to show up at an FFL, hand the gun to the FFL & after 10 work days you can pick it up assuming you pass the CADOJ background check. I am not sure who has to pay the state transaction fee & FFL's charge for their services. Does that have to be a gift?
  7. The cutoff date may be due to engine emissions labeling. In the off-road & on-highway medium & heavy duty markets the order cut-off date is 12/31 minus the lead time. The model year of an engine is the start online year.
  8. I don't know of any business that doesn't use LIFO accounting to determine cost of goods sold. "Last In First Out"
  9. What are those LEO's going to do when their neighbors target their families?
  10. AR-15 lower with a Fostech ECHO II trigger in binary mode w/223 Wylde upper. Unless with your weak hand pull the butt firmly into your shoulder it is nearly impossible to not double tap the target. The next most fun to shoot is a CZ452 silhouette. Off a rest I can break beer bottles at 100 yards with every pull of the trigger.
  11. I clamp the strut in the chuck. Clamp the spring retainer in vise's jaws. Lower the chuck to compress the hammer spring & remove the retaining pin. Raise the chuck to remove & install new spring. Lower the chuck to compress the spring & install pin. For me the press makes it a lot easier to compress the spring.
  12. A drill press & vise is an invaluable tool for changing Ruger Vaquero hammer springs. Much better than a fork. A set of bits that fit the screws on your firearms is essential unless you want to bugger the screws.
  13. The best price I found with a DuckDuckGo search (I don't use google search or the chrome browser) was from Midsouth Shooters. The price is for 50 tins at $242.89 ($4.86 a tin). https://www.midsouthshooterssupply.com/item/0005022617/-number-10-percussion-cap-(5000-count)
  14. NVA or North Vietnamese Army doesn't sing.
  15. Back in the 90's there were LE agencies that issued 357 Sig. The Alameda county sheriffs was one. A lot of 40 S&W pistol mfg's offered barrel & spring kits to convert their 40 S&W's to 357 Sig. The parent case is 40 S&W & the mag's are the same. I haven't shot one so I can't tell you that the recoil impulse is less, same or worse than 40 S&W. The misses doesn't complain about the recoil of a 25 oz. Kimber Ultra CDPII; but she won't shoot my full size H&K USP40. She has bought 2 other guns that she shoot once; 9mm derringer & Taurus 380 TCP. The derringer is a safe queen while the Taurus became my boot gun after I fixed its' designed in reliability issues.
