  1. Trapdoor Springfield 45-70. Looking for ammo

    I recently rebuilt a rusted-shut 1884 Trapdoor for my Uncle and am trying to track down some ammo for it. Does anyone know of a local shop/person in the Central MA (Fitchburg, Leominster, Sterling) area who would be a good resource? Also, has anyone had success firing the new production 45-70...

  5. WBZ Radio tonight @ 9:00pm - Gun control topic

    I get the daily topics in my email and came across one we all might be interested in. About 90% of the time Dan Rea is on the money with his views. He is articulate, and most of the time very receptive to all viewpoints. Most of all, he does not come off as some chest thumping...
  6. Shot my first rifle re-loads today...............

    and WOW. I never could fathom how simply reloading your own ammunition can improve the accuracy of a rifle. I am now a believer. I have quite simply, never been able to shoot like I shot today. I was using my M24/47 mauser with - Privi Partizan brass - Sierra 150 grain JSP, 0.323...
  7. How's this crimp look?

    So, I more or less fell into a reloading setup last Saturday. Saw an ad, called, and the deal was on of those that are too good to pass up. Ended up with a full setup from a very nice guy who was moving away: RCBS RS 5 single stage press Lyman tumbler Lyman powder dispenser RCBS scale...

  9. Safety Glasses - WEAR THEM!

    Good reminder that safety is not just a punchline. I was shooting at the range today and paused to watch the guy next to me shooting a real nice looking 1903. He pulled the trigger, and BOOM! A flash flew out the side of the gun, reminiscent of an old flint musket. He stood up and...

    Article in the Herald about the mother of the 14 year old who was shot a month or so ago. She's outraged that the accused killer was ARRESTED ON CHARGES OF GUN POSSESSION a few months before the murder. The revolving door courts let him go. She is the primary public face behind the...
  13. Just got back from Marlborough show - pics

    Just got back from the Marlborough gun show. Initially I stopped by around 10:30 and there were probably 300 people waiting in line to get in. I said "eff this" and headed north to NH for a toddlers birthday party in Manchester. Stopped on my way back and boy am I glad I did. First thing...

    So I stroll home from work yesterday to a pleasant sight.........a long brown box sitting on the couch with my name on it. It was my K31! I was able to take advantage of a holiday sale and pick up a real sweet deal on a K31 for $100 off! First thoughts upon tearing into the package: 1...

    So, I came out of the woods late this morning and decided to dive into our old gun cabinet and see what I could find. Pulled out an old-ish marlin 22 semi-auto, detachable magazine fed rifle. But, it needs some parts (see pics below). The only problem is that I cannot find any model...
  17. Took a 1st timer to the range today!

    In my quest to introduce as many of my friend as possible to the fun of target shooting, I took my roommate up to Danvers F&G. Initially I was hesitant to ask since he is a Jewish kid, is very quite, and is from NJ (very anti-gun). The worst scenario I could see playing out was I ask him to go...
