I don't keep any loaded AR mags, since I've still only got half an AR, I'm in no hurry to load mags. Be plenty of time for that whenever I finally get an upper.


I hope I never need mine but don?t want to get caught with my pants down.

Major that?s some fast service there - good to hear a good product.  I know Dillion sells them also

I never worried about leaving the magazines loaded, My uncle gave me a box of various ammo that was his father in laws and along with the ammo was a 1911 military magazine with the loop on the bottom fully loaded with military ammo dated 1918, I replaced it with some white box ball I had to test the magazine and it went through the 7 rounds with out so much as a hick up. Worked great.

That's cause the old story is a wives tale.  If springs set that easy you'd want to jack up your car and block it when not in use so the springs didn't set.

Sometimes logic solves the problem.😉

Yes Sir... and other considerations like FTF & stove piping etc. , these are why I chose my J Frame(s) for so long.
No BANG ? squeeze again !

 
BTW I'll add, I have a captured Beretta (with capture papers) , that had a spare Mag. loaded with 5 rounds  1 dared 1937 and 4 dated 6-42
Captured in 1945 the Mag was secured in the Holsters pouch since 1945 . It fed fine with new ammo, I have saved the WW2 vintage.

I tend to not have loose loaded mags ? comes from when having children around & a loaded gun locked in a safe.
Now as the young'n'  is off the range , only the carry is loaded

Glen i carry a SP 101 most of the time with a speed loader. I also leave a loaded revolver where Suzanne or I can get to if needed.
It was a a magazine question- mostly busting the spring issue that the Major2 spelled out.


Coffee is ready and water on the boil.


Nice soaking rains the last 36 hours or so. We needed it badly. It was very dry here. Having a good soaker right at this moment.

Morning y'all.
Thanks fer the coffee.

T'was getting dry here, but got drizzle most of yesterday.

'Tis 57 and cloudy. "Breezy. Partly cloudy. A chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Highs in the middle 70s. West wind 10 to 15 mph increasing to 15 to 25 mph in the afternoon. Chance of rain 30 percent."

"SHE" has a loaded S&W J frame 3" in her night table ... I keep a Mod 36  2" J frame

I use the J frame on occasion as CCW but the Sig has similar weight,  outside dims with twice the capacity  it makes good argument to carry

PE at one time I thought i?d Like to do a build. Prices have dropped on many models now...saving a few bucks in one is not a issue. This is not to rule out a better weapon though.

Morning all.

I have my grandfather's M1carbine magazine that he brought home from Tokyo in 1947. The ammo inside i dated at 1945.

I like my self loaders for defense because I've trained with them, and 99% of the problems I can expect to run into are solveable by tap-rack-bang.  My girlfriend doesn't have the hand strength or training I do, so I want to get her a 22mag j frame for exactly the reason the Major brought up. It goes click when it's supposed to go bang, you just pull the trigger again.

Of course, there's the tactics argument and all that, but we're a cowboy shooting forum, not Quantico. ::)

Also, I have a dozen or so loaded AR mags in my truck, but no AR to use them in. That part of the equation is over in Butte right now.

that is a very valid point .... I carry a wheel gun just for that very reason it is my most familiar .... point pull bang

but I'm becoming adept with Semi auto enough to carry in my pocket

I hate it when that happens!   ;D

I bought the lower and and it's part kit on a whim last winter. Finally put it together a couple of months ago, with an A-2 buttstock I got on sale from Midway. Probably gonna order an upper from PSA soon, bugs me to have "half a gun" laying around, not able to shoot!

Well I lost some more hearing tonight, I was on the phone, somebody ran up the doggy steps at about 90mph and barked right in my ear, grabbed my finger and gave me the impression that Rita had fell in the well since there is no Timmy here.

Well I filled him and he showed me his water dish was empty, demanding little cuss.

He figured out the touch lamp last night and turned it on as it was getting dark.

Gopher Grease who some of you know moved back in the are last week and stopped by to see him.  Watched him for a few minutes and said "that dog will hunt."  I done figured that out so I'm going to get traing gest and start on that.  Don't know if I can much anymore, but we are going to give it a go.  Need to get the tirus trap out, been about 10 years since I worked out with the 870, got a 5 gallon bucket of 28ga practice loads and stuff to make more.  Been thinking I need to get at it again, used to be damn good bordering on awsome with it.😉

Speaking of weather  ::)  here we go again Tropical Storm Dorian ( soon to Hurricane Dorian ) presently has Florida in its sights .
Hopefully it will stay off shore or if it does hit the coast will be diminished to a TS or rain event .

Cant take a chance though, stocking up on Bottled water , and other a sundries.

Good luck there major. Do you have permanent outside shutters on your windows, or do you just board over?

We have a fire burning in my neck of the woods. 200 acres at current, but it's in the grass, and winds are picking up. Looks to be going the other direction though.

Scored a old Oak desk chair off FB market, very nice, usable as is, a refinish project for this winter.  Probably replace the metal casters, but save them. 

Still looking for the desk to refinish, want on of those plain oak ones like the teachers used to have, will refinish to match.

Passed on a couple, nice and priced right, but in Omaha, if I don't find one local I'll travel for one.
