  1. Long guns can be bought by an out of state person only from an FFL. Long guns can not be purchased from a private individual by an out of state resident. These are federal rules These rules can be superceded by state law. If your state of resident does not allow this, you are out of luck. Legally, Handguns can not be bought by any out of state resident.....neither from an FFL or a private individual. They must be transferred to an FFL in your home state and then transferred to you. A Ohio resident can not sell any firearm to a Florida resident....legally!
  2. Not one shooter from the people’s republic of Massachusetts on the “who’s coming” list........ guess I’m going to have to talk to Reno Browne and take care of this ! we attended two years ago and loved it. Great match!
  3. I hate cleaning guns. Started this game with 45 Colt. At the pressures and velocity we shoot this game, the brass simply doesn't expand enough to seal the chamber. Huge blow back into the action. Switched to 38-40 (38wcf) and 44-40 (44wcf). Extreme thin brass expands at our pressures and seal the chamber. After a few thousand rounds I might clean a rifle and the internals look unfired! Some folks say hard to reload. I've loaded over 25,000 38wcf on a LEE 1000 and not lost any cases because of thinness. I suggest 44wcf because there are many more guns available in this caliber currently.
  4. What Kid said. I have a bunch of 38-40 rifles and revolvers. Chamber casts show all the Chambers are different. Even among the same brand. I had to take a few thousands off the bottom of both RCBS Cowboy dies and LEE dies. There is no SAMMI spec for 38-40. Or for 40-65 and many other 1800 cartridges.
  5. I do my own relining and have lots of examples of it on my web page where I bring old guns back from the grave. www.rvbprecision.com
  6. If it slides....grease If it spins....oil Basic machine lubrication 101 But just spraying silicone lubeveverywherebis better than nothing. It dries so as to not attracted dust. A spray before every match and your good to go.
  7. Does California still have a ban on the possession of "high capacity magazines", such as the standard 15 round magazine in a Glock 19? https://www.quora.com/Does-California-still-have-a-ban-on-the-possession-of-high-capacity-magazines-such-as-the-standard-15-round-magazine-in-a-Glock-19 The short answer is yes, although the details are more nuanced. Enforcing the PC 32310[1] (c) possession ban from Proposition 63 in 2016 remains blocked by an injunction granted in Duncan v. Becerra so you can’t be arrested today, although you could be prosecuted later if that changes before the statute of limitations expires. Regardless, such magazines are still subject to confiscation as nuisances under PC 32390[2]and PC 18010[3] . The PC 32310(a) ban on manufacturing, importing, receiving, transferring, and selling from 1999 remains. Some cities like Sunnyvale and Los Angeles have their own possession bans without grandfather clauses. The implications are that you shouldn’t be convicted of a state crime for continued possession of a magazine you owned in California before 2000, although that magazine is contraband subject to seizure. Having a magazine acquired after 2000 isn’t illegal, but is evidence of a likely crime. In spite of having magazines legally grandfathered under state law, you can still have problems in specific cities like Los Angeles and Sunnyvale, even traveling through them with 18 USC 926A[4] only mentioning firearms without commenting on accessories.
  8. OFF Topic but still pretty funny....At the range where I'm range supervisor, a few years ago....A fellow showed up with a brand new 22-250 rifle. Being a new gun I was interested to see how it shot. He loaded, pulled the trigger, and the gun made a sound like a pellet gun! He said he couldn't hit the target only 50 yds away. I told him to shoot again.....When he did, about 15 feet in front of the bench I saw the gravel move. He did it again with the same result. He told me he was using reloads and loaded them himself. I asked how much powder...he said "32 grains of 6064......." "I counted them myself".........He said he used tweezers!!!!!
  9. All this did was stop confiscation of already in possession high cap magazines. They are still illegal to buy, import and transfer in CA. Actually protected the 4th amendment more than the 2nd.
  10. I have a 1911 barrel somewhere that I cut the long way with 8 bullets in the barrel. CAS shooters use such low pressure loads that revolver damage is extremely rare. Especially with Rugers.
  11. If camping, how early can you arrive? Willing to help set up...
  12. Any word on the course of fire? Lead bullets in the bolt rifle might be a deal breaker as most folks with a 6.5x55 or 303 might not load them. If they do, they most likely would be gas checked.
  13. The 737 Max8 is a game changer airplane. Range, fuel efficiency, noise, ROI....the next generation of airliner. The problem was not technology but not enough pilot training on a very new system. Someone at Boeing really dropped the ball in this regard.
  14. There is no SAMMI spec for the 38-40....I have 8 of them and chamber casts prove the chambers are all over the place......Recently ordered 2000 bullets and the vendor sent me coated bullets by accident (pretty red!)....I kept them but they only chamber easily in two of my rifles. All the other you need to close the action tightly as the bullets impact the rifling. On the 1866s it feels like the action is closed, you pull the trigger, and it fires out of battery....Ouch! I had a reamer cut by Manson Reamers to the most common dimensions, but it still has a problem with these coated bullets. I have a few Uberti rifles and all have different throat dimensions. Uberti obviously uses different reamer dimensions at different times. But all in all, the 38-40 is a fantastic cartridge for CAS. Low recoil with 180g bullets, just about zero blowback into the action with smokeless or black powder. Because of a bottlemeck configuration they feed great in a 66/73 and a 92....
  15. Amazing what computer technology can do for flight controls. 30 years ago it used not much more than a Radio Shack computer. Today it is using cutting edge flight control systems. Thirty years ago most of the front line military aircraft were impossible. But today, with advanced computer control F35, F22, FA18 Super Hornet and others are possible. The early V22 was simply ahead of the technology needed to make it safe.
