      Light primer strikes?

      I am assuming this is a non self defense situation: You should stop firing immediately. You may have had a hang-fire that happens when the primer is struck but the round does not fire immediately. The range rule at the AGC ranges is that you should keep the firearm pointed downrange for at...

      Weapon Confiscated

      Check the magazine. Maybe they put it in there. If a criminal picked it up and put it in a firearm that would lead to a bad detonation, both MSP and you helped make Baltimore safer. If MSP kept it, consider it a donation to the police dept to make Baltimore safer. goo to...

      Trump Supports Confiscation

      Seems to me if a judge thinks that a person is a threat to themselves or others, the person should be removed from the public, which means they will not have access during that time. Then when a doctor releases that person from the mental hospital, or from jail, by the police...then that person...

      Which Dillon is best for our intentions?

      The only press that will swage and do all the other necessary operations at the same time is the 1050.

      Perfect sight picture vs ACCEPTABLE sight picture.

      “Leap of faith is the path to hitting the X ring. Grip leads to trigger control. Trigger control leads to sight alignment. Leap of faith leads to accepting wobble area.” Rapid fire trigger control tip for 25 yards: Maintain trigger pressure while under recoil (and therefore in follow through)...

      Progressive vs Single Stage

      I'd rather load rifle on a progressive. At one time (almost 200,000 rounds ago) I would trickle charge and try to use all the same brass. What makes a bigger difference is being able to shoot well. Load a butt load and shoot more often. I'll spend money on high quality bullets, mix brass...

      AIMING IS USELESS! - this video is a must see.

      The right grip is very important for trigger control for rapid fire shooting. If you look closely at Rob shooting you can clearly see that he isn't using a crushing grip. People interpret him saying use a tight grip or as he said "as tight as I can" as using a crushing grip...saying "as tight...

      AIMING IS USELESS! - this video is a must see.

      We will have to agree to disagree. Too loose grip gives bigger groups (trigger motion and recoil induced). Too tight also gives bigger groups (lack of trigger control). You can not grip tight and retain fine motor control of your finger. So what to do? “Just Right” tension that gives you...

      AIMING IS USELESS! - this video is a must see.

      Concerning grip, grip pressure, and trigger finger placement it depends a lot on how fat the handgun is and how large your hand is. You have to find the sweet spot so that the bottom of the firearm back strap has firm pressure against the heel of your hand so that you can squeeze the trigger...

      Why clean brass?

      I clean my brass to help make reloading smoother and easier on the dies. Also can help you see any defects better.

      AGC Shooting Steel Stand Plan

      I hear that the rail road ties that the AGC is adding on the Barnes range at 100 yards is going to have mounts attached to the back that will take both the standard 12 3/4 inch center to center frames and also a mount that will allow a 2 by 4. It seems like a good way to for steel targets is...
