The oldest thing I ever shot was my grandad's Iver Johnson .32 S&W revolver. I'm not sure what year it was made, but I believe it was from the teen's. It was rated for smokeless powder, so it...

Thanks for the input. With my other pistols, I use to crimp to .472", and this worked fine. I know that you can go as low as .467" and still be in tolerance, but I'm not comfortable crimping that...

So, is this an AR type rifle in something other than 5.56? He claims it has enough "kick" to "knock you down". I've seen 10 year olds firing AR's.

I wonder how long before one of these "peaceful" marches erupts into a gun battle? I see a lot of worked up people with firearms. Doesn't take much for things to go really bad really fast.

If you are looking for a carry gun, I would suggest looking at CCO size pistols. The shorter grip does make a difference in concealing, but I have never found it to be too short.

I use a lock box underneath my seat if I have to disarm. I don't like leaving a gun in the car, but a locked box out of sight under my seat in a locked car seems like the best I can do.
