  3. Thompson magazines

    I have a co-worker who's looking for mags for a Thompson SMG. Are there any to avoid, for reasons such as the new semi-auto mags don't work in original guns, or just crap manufacturers? Saw a fair number on Gunbroker - anyone out there selling them in quantity? Right now he's just looking for...

    Lee Sportsmans is offering a basic reloading course on June 24th. Jim doesn't make it out to the western end of the state often, so here's your chance. LSA is on Fairview St in Lee MA - about a 10 minute drive from the Pike exit in Lee. Larry K. is handling registrations, contact info is...
  5. 22 TCM Reloading

    I've got a 22 TCM Contender barrel coming in about a month, so I'm starting to gather the rest of the necessaries. Posing with a 9mm: No SAAMI recognition for this one (yet), and not much for load data. The case is based off the 223 so there's no shortage of raw materials for...

  8. Inside the Mind of a Thief : Allen Police Department Exclusive Interview

    https://youtu.be/DtwD-c9hn58 ~45 minute interview with a 20 year professional burglar. Quite a bit of information on how the opposition works. This guy was working in Texas, but most of what he's talking about isn't location specific.

  11. Cracked K31 stock :-(

    My K31 has some cracks developing in the stock. Not really sure if the woods grain was poor there, or if someone is used this as a club at some point in its career. The stock matches this s/n rifle, so I have to keep it. Is there anything better for this than the original thickness...

    There was a discussion on this last year here on NES - Snipers Hide has just put up a decent article pulling a lot of that information together. Full article at Snipers Hide: http://snipershide.scout.com/story/1528352-mils-vs-moa-which-one-is-right-for-you
  13. "An Act to regulate the sale and use of microwave ovens." S113 MA

    https://malegislature.gov/Bills/BillHtml/123793?generalCourtId=11 The snark is strong with this one. Fortunately, it was filed "By Request", which is the Mass. legislature secret code for "Do Not Resuscitate". I almost feel bad for state legislators knowing that any constituent can...
  14. Vz 24/47

    Picked up a Vz 24/47, and I'm looking for more info on it. I'm not real familiar with Mausers. My impression of it is that it's a variation/modification on the Vz24 (guess, based on a beat up Vz24 I have). It has that rearsenalled look about it, and looks like some of the parts were...
  15. At Life's End, A Final Home On The (Shooting) Range

    At Life's End, A Final Home On The (Shooting) Range I'm in..... Not quite as epic as HST having his remains fired out of a cannon, but it does feel appropriate to me, somehow.
  16. W. Mass Black Powder source?

    One of the guys I shoot with is looking for a source for black powder (he didn't specifiy which grade - based on his collection, probably all of them). Western/Central MA, Northern CT, Southern VT and NH would all probably work for him. Actual black powder, not substitutes like pyrodex...
  17. AR Refinishing Review - US Anodizing, VA

    An old EA arms preban, cast receiver, complete with a really crappy painted finish. If it ever was anodized, they skipped the dye step - when I took the black paint off, bare Al underneath. Before: After a trip to US Anodizing for type III anodizing, color's what they call 'New...

  19. A Rifleman's War

    Article: A Rifleman's War An interesting read, I think - especially when I keep in mind the trouble I have with shooting at 400, never mind the 500-900 the article refers to. Found on Smallwarsjournal.com....
