Recently the group that oversees the “WILD BUNCH” shooting competition over at the “Single Action Shooting Society” modified the rules on 1911 magazine modifications and now allow a leather magazine pad on the bottom of our 1911 magazines.

PROPER 17HMR BORE GUIDE!
When Hornady developed the 17HMR rimfire cartridge, they really hit a home-run! And the rifle manufacturers turned out a plethora of rifles to chamber it.
But unlike the 22RF cartridge, which many seasoned shooters will tell you, might never need to have the bore scrubbed, the 17HMR with its “real” copper jacketed bullet and its extreme velocity, needs bore cleaning often.
The problem is, no one makes a “proper” bore guide for this type of rifle. Most 17HMR rifles are nothing more than 22RFM rifles with a 17cal barrel. And many of these 22RF rifles have one issue when you try to use a standard bore guide that protects the delicate chamber edge and the bottle neck area of the chamber. A fixed ejector is in the way.
This little “shark fin” is right in line with the chamber and is fixed. It doesn’t move out of the way. Therefore the bore guide you might use for your centerfire rifles will not pass by and work in this rifle.

Powder Coated Bullets with Black Powder?
A quick video of a fishing rod wrapper / dryer I built out of spare junk….
Picked up a used Charles Daly Miroku Superior yesterday and it needed a couple simple modesâ€¦. First remove the very 1960s white line spacers Secondâ€¦ I’m not a big fan of ejectors. And this gun could fling spent shells into another county! I removed the two V springs that must have come from the rear
Recently I became involved with all things “Shotgun”….. Shooting Trap, Bird Hunting, Sporting Clays. This led to the purchasing of a few different types of shotguns over the summer months. My search for a 20ga Pump Action shotgun led me to the very fine Ithaca 37 model. This shotgun has been in production for nearly
Recently I became a fan of Trap Shooting. Went out and bought a beautiful Remington 11-87 Sporting Clays model shotgun. Adjustable comb and butt plate. Twenty Eight inch ported / back bored barrel with extended choke tubes. Amazing wood and a nickle plated receiver. Loverly! But when taken to the patterning board there was
The SKB 100 and 200 double barrel shotguns are the favorite of the Single Action Shooting Society or Cowboy Action Shooting crowd. But they have one relatively large issue. The forend tends to creep forward under recoil and in some cases may split the forend wood. I decided to try and bed the forend on
