    I've had a hankerin' for a 1911-style in 9MM since fondling the Colt they had in the gunshop where I worked back in the day. Given what those went for then and especially now, I had put it out of my...

    I'm hoping ammo prices stay steady or drop some before the next show in April. I'm OK on powder but primers are something I might buy a few of. About the only ammo I buy anymore is 7.62 X 39 & 54R,...

    It's muddy today with all the rain. Otherwise I'd have taken it out for a spin. Not sure how old this MPA is, but it's a top-cocker and looks pretty fresh.

    Cheap Ammo - get it while you can

    I found a very good deal on 7.62 X 25 Polish brass cased ammo. J&G has it for a little over 200 bucks shipped for 2500+ rounds. I don't even have a gun in that caliber but have been thinking about...

    Marine Bayo

    Found a nice used Ontario OKC-3S Marine bayonet at an online ad site. An 18 YO kid wanted 60 bucks for it. The blade had a few flat spots and the sides looked like somebody had used it to chop tree...

    I liked it. The wife gave the DVD set to me for Chrismas. She got it on sale at Best Buy for under 30 bucks, so I think it was worth it. I'll watch it again too.

    Finally got a chance to take the PSL and SAR-1 out and try the new triggers. Both worked well and helped accuracy but there's still a lot of creep on the PSL. Not gritty like the original though.
