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: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Oh – I forgot---- Make a simple case induction annealer just using a car battery. You will just have to keep recharging it of course. Or...get a good deal on a used car battery ‘Fast Charger’ and keep it on the battery. One shouldn’t have to do too many at a time anyway. https://www.bing.com/images/...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

ACCURACY-----Uniform case neck tension - I believe that induction heating is the thing to come in case annealing...It is so simple compared to the flame method but, BUT...the makers of the devices are going to soak the buyers for all they can get, just because it is new...and....it is more complicat...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Off topic, This-N-That...I just came back from town doing some shopping and I saw a sign in front of some store at the nearest parking spot to the entrance. “RESERVED PARKING.” I wondered who for. It reminded me of one time in Phoenix where I stopped at a furniture store and at the closest parking s...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

I don’t know who all in the DOD that this effected, but I was authorized to shoot 42,000 rounds of ‘High Powered’ ammunition per year for practice. Why the odd amount, I don’t know. The Chief in charge of the Armory at NAS Cubi Point just said, too much bother with the paper work, just check out any...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Just my opinion - So much useful information...still has the same front cover picture. It would answer so many questions that some may ask and wonder about. https://www.amazon.com/NRA-Gunsmithing-Guide-Compiled-American/dp/B000I0WMSK?SubscriptionId=AKIAIKBZ7IH7LXTW3ARA&&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creati...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

With all of the .45 1911’s that may hit the market some may want to try their hand at accurizing them. I did it with my DCM 1911 when they were 19.95. I found that it can be done easily and fairly inexpensive. I don’t want to say too much on how I did it because of the liability issue. But I did it ...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

FWTW – This is the most accurate hand gun that I have ever shot and in the late 50’s were 70 $ or so. I have never shot one of those ‘Free style’ types. But as far as I am concerned this basic design could be made by any manufacture and I don’t know why they are not. Now these are relatively hard to...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

I just saw on another forum where some guy really bad-mouthed Larry Potterfield for his Gunsmithing videos. I just think that they are very informative, very precise, and very well presented and I try to watch them all. His complaint was that Larry Potterfield sometimes used expensive tooling and ji...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

I don’t like to use the word ‘tip’ because it may sound presumptuous to some. But if I was to tell my son maybe how to shoot more accurately with a shotgun I may do this: But I sure wouldn’t need to. He came by one time and we went out back to do some shooting. When he shot my hand guns he just took...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

ACCURACY: You are dog-gone right, polished brass will shoot better than the uncleaned brass, probable. One doesn’t have to be an Einstein to figure this out. It is called ‘Pride in workmanship’. Chances are, CHANCES ARE, if one takes the time to do this, they will also take more time in preparing th...

Oh heck, it doesn’t sound too bad. Yes, ordered to shoot people...if. Well it was like this...It was May. 1953...The Korean Conflict was going hot and heavy. Have you heard of the ‘Peter Principle’? I attribute a whole lot of this incident to this, ‘Peter Principle.’ To me it was down right ridiculo...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Yes, of course, but why are there so many people that have guns...shoot guns, that don’t understand this? How can something so innately basic be so hard to understand by anyone that is out-and-about on the streets and not locked up in some insane asylum? And, and....no matter how that rifle will sho...

SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

The forum title does say for Shooters & Collectors but I gather that most of the concern is of ‘Collectors’. But just let me throw out some my Hits & Misses of my thoughts on Shooting. Don’t even begin to think that I am saying that anything that I may say is in any way correct or an only way to loo...
