  1. Great idea--I'm doing this tonight. So sick of chasing dummy rounds across the floor after dropping mags. Thanks!
  2. I was thinking of doing this, but was worried about damage to the slide from over insertion since you wouldn't have a round on top to cushion the impact. Are you seeing any issues?
  3. Some .40 caliber Glocks have less case support at the chamber to ramp transition than other guns. This creates cases that expand around the head which don't get fully sized back during reloading. Rounds sometimes don't chamber or get stuck and won't extract.
  4. Download a metronome app on your phone and use it in dry fire. Set it at 180 BPM (.33 splits) and try to maintain that pace shot to shot (during transitions as well). As you get better at maintaining tempo, drop it down to .25 splits or as fast as you're comfortable with. That's only one component of it however. You also have to be able to see fast enough to maintain an acceptable sight picture and control the gun well enough that the sights return quickly and consistently.
  5. I'm happy with it so far. Can't speak to reliability as I've only got around 600 rounds on it. It's clean, simple and comes at a great price.
  6. At least in USPSA, it wouldn't be a DQ offense. As Kraj pointed out, if an RO noticed, he would need to be escorted to a safe area to remove the magazine and ensure the weapon was clear.
  7. It's actually an M8 washer filed to the shape of the buff. It just prevents the buff from getting chewed up.
  8. If you do end up running a polymer buff, this little trick will make them last nearly forever. I picked this up from log man on the 1911 forum.
  9. In the document linked above from the NIH, they say that Lead Acetate absorbed through the skin is only slightly transferred into the blood. You could have a significant amount of Lead in other tissues from this type of exposure that wouldn't show up in a blood test.
  10. Roger that. Maybe 9X45 is a Chemist or otherwise specially qualified to make the statements he made, but I've seen enough other sources claim that using a 50/50 mixture of 5% Vinegar and 3% Hydrogen Peroxide to remove lead is dangerous to question his qualifications/sources. Maybe it's an old wive's tale, but I'd like to see something definitive.
  11. I'm pretty sure the 5% is the amount of Acetic Acid in the Vinegar Solution and the 3% is Hydrogen Peroxide percentage. Has nothing to do with the mix ratio.
  12. Not being a chemist and having heard it from so many sources, I believed it to be true. http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2016/07/05/the-dip-a-toxic-mixture-used-to-clean-silencer-parts/
  13. Just be careful with that solution when you're done. It creates Lead Acetate which is very toxic and easily absorbed through the skin. It should also be disposed of properly.
  14. I've had success with squeezing the AFTEC with both springs and clip tightly in a padded vice overnight. It eased up the tension on one of mine nicely.
  15. Ouch! Was the popper in good condition? I've been hit by splatter coming from other bays numerous times and have seen folks get hit where a piece of sharp jacket drew blood. This is the first time I've seen it hit hard enough to cause a piece to penetrate deep enough to embed in flesh. I've heard stories of it happening with steel that's in poor condition (pocked/cratered or otherwise damaged). I guess I was under the false impression that if you maintained the minimum safe distance (23 ft.) and were shooting at steel in good repair that you were pretty safe from injury. Seems there is always some risk to shooting steel.
