Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Federal "Real" photo I.D. to buy BULLETS! (in MD) WTAF?

Largely, "REAL" ID (which is a set of federally approved standards for issuance of a secure form of identification) driver's licenses are directed at the illegal immigration problem. Its inception goes back to the fall out from 9/11, and the instituted requirements for secure ID to be presented in c...

Re: What's In My Barrel?

The only problem with sweets, which is great product, is the high ammonia content. You can't safely use it for long term soaking because of that & nickelling needs the long soak because you have to break the chemical bond which is what makes it so tough to remove. I have sweets & use it at the rang...

Re: What's In My Barrel?

+1 on Sweet's. I have used it for years to remove copper fouling, always with good results.

Dish soap, , a quart of Mobile 1, a bottle of Hoppes #9 and a bottle of Sweet's make up the total inventory of my gun cleaning oil and solvent supplies and I never want for anything more.

Re: Virginia Democrat Market Levine of VA House District 45 may know less about guns than any human being!

Doubtful he really believes that and "knows" less.

That is simply what he wants others to believe, or say they believe, regardless of the truth.

We all know, on both sides, at this point, that gun control is not about "public safety". Quite the opposite.

Re: storing ammo

I feel that it is important to keep some ammo on hand for several reasons but the question is how long can you keep ammo and what is necessary to store it? Hope I have been clear on the topic. THANKS Stored in ammo cans, or even the original cases/packaging, and kept dry at a moderate stable temper...

Re: reloading data

KySwiss, Ammolab is correct on all three counts. CUP and CIP are not interchangeable. Velocity, and not pressure, is the best indicator of the performance of a load. as depending on powder and other factors, you can have more pressure and less velocity, or less pressure and more velocity (the usual ...

Re: VA goes 90% "Sanctuary" status!

Definitely worth watching.

It may turn out to be a "blueprint" or at least an indication of how things are going to go in the future nationwide between the red rural areas, and the blue urban ones.

Re: Savage 32acp

I have one of those. Very cool little pistol. It is interesting in that it is a striker fired design, with an exposed "hammer" that is actually a cocking lever. Also neat in that it is one of the earliest pistols with a staggered box magazine. Though it is often mistaken as a model 1905 due tot he p...

Re: Will this ammunition work with my K98k?

Yes, about that... Do I just mix some dish soap with some warm water and then pore it down the bore like a rense? Or should I run soapy-warm swabs through the barrel with a cleaning rod? What works best? Personally I get a little bucket, or other plastic container, fill it with 2-3 inches of hot wa...

Re: Will this ammunition work with my K98k?

You are welcome. Just make sure you clean the bore of your rifle with a little warm soapy water soon after shooting to remove the salts from the corrosive primers to prevent it rusting. Follow up cleaning with a light coat of oil.

Re: Will this ammunition work with my K98k?

That is Turkish surplus 8mm Mauser. It is corrosive and somewhat on the warm side as 8mm Mauser goes, so keep that in mind, other than that it should work in any 8mm Mauser rifle in good condition designed for modern smokeless powder loads. Actually it is pretty good stuff as far as surplus 8mm goes...

Re: My Chilean 1895

I have the twin of that rifle, have has for a number of years too, and it is one of the most accurate rifles of any type that I own.

7X57 makes it very pleasant to shoot as well.

Great pics, Thanks for sharing.

Re: This "Schmeisser designed the AK" nonsense...

Archives, as in Soviet archives. Which I am sure in no way were doctored to support the Kalashnikov fairy-tale. Lots of stuff out there on this: Mikhail Kalashnikov denied any foreign influence on his designs, Schmeisser told Western spies that he gave them ideas. Soviet prisoner from 1945 to 1952, ...
