  2. Urban carry holster advice

    I recently got the Urban carry holster.. the one that gives deep concealment as the pistol sits in the pouch and you have to pull it up to access it. Question is, it is so much harder to pull up then as advertised.. was expecting more for a $60 holster. Some people said you have to break it in...

  5. Newbie and Learning

    General Discussion
    This is my first time joining a shooting forum. I'm hoping to learn a lot more than I know now, which isn't a lot. I've had a couple of weapons for home defense for many years, fired them enough to be comfortable with them but that's about it. Recently, I bought my first semi-auto, a Ruger...

    This isn't probably the appropriate forum for this question, it's just a general inquiry. Does anyone know who (internet) has pistol powder in stock? I check gunbot,net twice a day but I know there are vendors out there that aren't picked up by that site. I've got pounds and pounds of rifle...

    Handloading Procedures/Practices
    I've been handloading some Hornady 185 gn SWC for my HK45, however, they are not feeding into the chamber properly. :confused: The OAL is purportedly 1.135", but I've shot some Winchester factory 185 gn SWC with no issue and if I recall correctly, the OAL seemed to be a bit longer. Is it the...

  10. FF or FFF in .50 cal. pistol?

    I have a single shot muzzleloader pistol (5") in .50 cal. I haven't shot it in about 15 years and forget what I loaded it with. It seems to me I should use FFF in such a short barrel, but I'm worried the weight of the ball might create a lot more pressure. Also, any suggestions on the volume...
