    No no. That’s something I need to be reminded of each time I look at that part of the slide. :rolleyes:

    I bought a Kaw Valley AR gas block dimpling jig and an Aero Precision low profile gas block. That jig was only $28 bucks. If it lasts a while, I'll think of it as money well spent. :D

    I remember Hecks...it was the same size as Kmart. When it closed, a Kmart went into the same building.

    I’ve got half a dozen boxes of 22s just like that. Shot a box at the range last week and they shot great. Seemed to be loaded a little hotter but that’s just going off sound and feel.

    You mean back when Olin actually could make good rimfire ammo ;)

    I have 1,000rds of M22s that I would almost give away to a good home. I am scared to shoot it out of a revolver due to having a squib lol. Maybe I need a shorter barrel for those

    I had a batch of Wildcat 22 that were terrible. The last 2 bricks of Aguila 22LR wouldn't cycle anything I tried it in, I'm still in the process of shooting them up in a revolver, and smell like super-glue when I shoot them. o_O

    the super glue smell is the acrylate in the Eley prime. Once you get used to that, it actually kinda smells nice like Hoppe's lol. They're not the super colibri are they? If so I know why they won't cycle ;)

    No, it was "super extra".

    It is really dirty, and I mean nasty. Shooting it out of a single action revolver, the fingers I used to rotate the cylinder as I was ejecting the spent cases would be solid black. Never will buy those again.

    Wasn’t there a recall on that ammo a few years back?

    My Smith wheelgun kick continues.

    Picked up a 1976 Model 10 that looks to be barely carried or fired...
    Model 10.jpg

    The next day came across a Mass State Police Model 36.
    Model 36-01.jpg

    Model 36-02.jpg

    My "inside guy" at S&W was able to verify that it was delivered to the MSP in March of 1963.

    Model 36-03.jpg

    I will be transferring it to the Mass State Police Museum so more will be able to appreciate its history.

    I just placed an order for an Aero Precision H2 buffer for my AR pistol that I am putting together. New BCG should be here Saturday. This building thing is worse than a Harley Davidson habit!

    CJ holster and mag pouch from the BST.

    It’ll be my 3rd mag pouch of his, and they’re all different styles. Looking forward to trying this one...horizontal w/ two belt loop design.

    My google skills are failing me on this one. Pics or link? Always looking for new holster ideas.

    I'm having a conversation with CJ about holsters for my 686 and 625 like the one @B00ger got for his 686. That holster is a thing of beauty.

    You are making a very very good move. It is as functional as it is beautiful as well.
