    Hello, I am not very optimistic that shells will be available closer to season esp with the way everyone is buying everything in sight so I am starting early. I am not having any luck locally (Fresno) so I have bought 2 cases of 20 ga and 1 case of 12 ga at Bass Pro in Manteca. I need 2 more...

    I have noticed in many of the Wilson Combat descriptions of their guns they refer to the slide and frame being made of "carbon steel". Most other manufacturers refer to their slides and frames as being made from "stainless steel". Can anyone explain the difference between the two metals and is...

    Gents, I am seriously thinking about another Phineas C. Zoid build - "SONOFAZOID" My first series of random thoughts / questions: I used a stainless frame to put under a vintage blued steel slide for my first build. As expected, I needed to do a little fitting on the frame to get it to fit...

    So I have become very intrigued with steel shooting. Things are very different from when I shot IPSC in the 80's. I am looking at an STI DVC Steel pistol to use. My question is, why are so many have the slide lock defeated or disconnected in this game???

    I had a pretty good local steel match last night. 1st of 3 in Single Stack and 10th of 60 overall. I think I did a little better than I normally do, so I was happy about that. And as always, it was a lot of fun! Round count for the Baer is up to 31,650.

Both are Colt, both are checkered, and are in brand new condition as removed from their respective pistols. I will sell each one for $40 delivered CONUS or $72...
  12. Range Reports & Reviews
    I received my new Wilson CQB Commander in 9mm about three weeks ago and have three range trips and 700 rounds through it so far. Might hit 1,000 tomorrow or Tuesday. One fail to return to battery after the second shot (about an eighth inch out) and not a hiccup since. Ordered it just the way I...

    I have an number of 1911s -- just never found a Colt I really wanted (although a buddies mid-60s NM lived in my safe for quite awhile) -- that changed this week when I discovered a Combat Commander in excellent condition at a nearby LGS. Dated it as 1971 manufacture (serial # 70BS40XX) on...

    So I jumped into the 1911 arena with both feet and am glad I did, although it's hit my wallet pretty hard! lol I have bought a Brommeland IWB holster which I like a lot! The "problem" comes from the proper belt I believe. I am using 511 belt (Trainer 1.5") and it doesn't seem to offer enough...

    I am having a problem. It seems that even when stainless steel contacts my skin, it will rust. A good example is the magazine release. Since most of these are checkered, the rust develops in the valleys. Has anyone found a solution to this?
