    Sort of an interesting variant, so passing it along. Cheers.

    What guns would make the blooper reel of firearms history?

    History is replete with examples; wrong offering at the wrong time, manufacturer misjudged the buying public, good idea but poorly executed, in a weird caliber that never caught on, terrible idea that no one can really explain, cool feature(s) but not enough to justify the...

    Your choice of bullseye revolver and automatic? But, uh-oh, (plot twist!) ... it is 1936!

    The genesis of this wackiness, beyond really enjoying revolver shooting as of late, is earlier in the year I bought a copy of a book, or rather two volumes combined, that covers the topic. It was written in the interwar period, at least one of which appears to have been published originally in...

    Weirdly Late "Buck-N-Ball" - Standard Arms 50 Caliber "Camp" Gun

    These are certainly ... different. Don't recall ever hearing of them. Anywho, just passing it along.

    Your "pleasantly surprised" firearms-related acquistions?

    Every now and again many of us take a gamble on a firearms-related purchase only to find him or herself pleasantly surprised by the results. A few recent(ish) examples: I recently bought a bunch of KCI M1 Carbine magazines. I had been warned off of things made by them, but these...

    PS01 Questions-o-rama

    So, after years of searching, we finally acquired the wife a Margolin pattern pistol, in the form of a Chinese PS01: (First time she shot it was not far off the back porch. Me keeping two potato heads safely wrangled and her letting fly at an old plastic flower planter that was on the way...

    Reloaders: How did you get into said?

    Did you learn how to reload from a relative or friend? A workshop or class? Self-taught? Inquiring minds want to know. (Well, at least one does.) Thanks. :)

    Hunters Lodge?

    Anyone done business with this outfit? They have a couple revolvers, and possibly rifle, in the latest Firearms News that I'm interested in. I take pause because the prices are abnormally low, particularly considering the gunpocylpse. That and their site looks like something from 1998 and...

    Q&A: Silencers with Kevin Brittingham of AAC & Q

    Interesting Headstamp Publishing is coming out with a silencer history book soon. Anywho, just passing along the discussion that focuses on cans and not so much the aforementioned book.

    Little optic for carry handle equipped AR?

    A while back I saw a very compact telescope scope for ARs with a carry handle upper. I was thinking it would be a good addition to the abbreviated AR we have: Recommendations? Thank you. :)

    Anyone use eForms Recently?

    So, I have another Form 1 project (SBR) under works. I'm planning on having the threading and action work done first while it is still Title I. Then I will file for the stamp. I plan on using eForms since it is back now, albeit requiring mailing in fingerprint cards. (There are only two...

    Prescription Shooting Glasses?

    We're looking to acquire prescription shooting glasses for my sidekick (@TeacherSmurf). Though I know he is a shooter, I don't know that our optometrist carries such a thing. I'd have to imagine there are options online, so am searching on that now. If anyone has had good experience with a...

    Your source for steel targets?

    I just got back from the home range and am I reminded that we need to replace our targets. The ones up there are either completely toast or close to it. I'm looking to setting up 3-4 different sized steel targets, at various ranges, on said. I've bought them off the Intertubes from various...

    Once popular shooting sports?

    What shooting sports do you think of that used to be very popular, but, for whatever reason, have slowly faded away? Why do you think it happened? Any attempts to revitalize them? Any fond memories to share? Thanks! :)

    Failed cartridges...

    Today I stopped by a small sporting goods store that has been around since, according to the wife of the owner, 1946. I remember going there as a youth for fishing supplies, and with my father and older brother for firearm-related items back in the 1980s. My reason for visiting was largely...

    .44 Magnum Autoloaders circa 2018?

    So, I recently acquired a revolver in .44 Magnum and like it very much thus far. Alas, trigger time has been hampered by real life, but I look forward to more times on the home range. I'm also reading an old book (circa 1995) entitled Hand Cannons: The World's Most Powerful Handguns. In...

    FFL Checklist

    Well, I've been planning on setting up an 01FFL side business for some time now. This month, I've started to get the ducks in the row for just that. I've got the paperwork, essentially, completed and ready to be sent off the first week of next month. I started this thread for two reasons...
