  1. I got all my reloading stuff together and started cranking out .45acp rounds. looks like cost is right around 13-15 cents a piece reloaded. Thats a big damn difference in what a day at the range costs.

    really in raw hardware, only around $300 or so. I spent a total of close to $800, but that set me up with enough supplies to reload over 2000 .45acps and 500 308s, with spare stuff still left over after that. You can get a pretty basic press setup and supplies for under $500. Whats funny is that the most expensive part at least in pistol reloading is the lead. I may look into casting my own, and getting the lead from tire stores taking off weights or something like that.

    Thats not bad considering you are saving between 50cents to a dollar, on average per shot. Plus you now have a hobby!

    Yeah, i'm doing them a specific whole way, so i'm depriming all shells first, then with a hand primer priming them while I watch tv with the kids. then its just putting them in the press with the auto feed for powder and slide the bullet itself into place. yesterday my 5 year old helped, he was really into the idea of making bullets

  6. So....I sold my M&P9 thinking I was going to get a "Shield" for another CCW option. I've always wanted to carry a .45 for CCW, but down here in Florida most of the year it's not exactly easy with the current options on the market. The Glock 30S looked like a nice option, but instead I walked out with the Springfield XDs in .45 ACP. I have never been a fan of the XD series of guns. The center or gravity just always seemed off to me; but not with this one. Boy did they absolutely nail a winner in this gun. It's worth every penny. Great trigger; aggressive grip serrations; very manageable recoil; and cosmetically a freakin' beauty. The addition of a factory fiberoptic sight was a nice with extra in the case if you wanted to change color. I really liked the bi-tone color, so I lucked out when they had one in stock. Needless to say, my new everyday carry weapon is now the XDs.

    She's a beauty. I love the AK platform. Once I sell a few firearm-related things that I have, I plan to start an AR10 build. My M1A needs a .308 brother.

  20. What's everyone’s feeling on the new "smart gun" I just got sent this article and it seems like a neat toy as it can have an amateur shoot really accurate at crazy distances but it takes all the discipline out of shooting.

    once I get back from vacation and know how badly my budget was destroyed i'll be picking up some more 308 brass. Not having any luck so far with the hydraulic pressure method of blowing off berdan primers. do you know what kind of sealer they used on those back in the late 70s early 80s on military ammo? figure I may try soaking it in acetone to see if that takes it down, but you can definitely see the sealer on them. Not crimped at least.

    I really like both of them, but I'd go with Glock. - Higher parts availability, proven design/function, and outstanding reliability.

    Also check out the Glock 23. - I'd prefer that over the 22 for these reasons:

    1) Accepts mags from G22, but the G22 won't accept G23 mags.
    2) Easily convertible to 9mm. - Lone Wolf makes a 9mm barrel for ~$100, and the G23 will take mags from G19/17. You can also get a .357SIG barrel should you choose to do so
    3) Any G19 holster fits the G23
    4) Easier to conceal
