  1. They'll have to safely ground the gun while putting their belt back on when they ULASC. Other than that, everyone has a giggle and the shooter learns about wardrobe.
  2. Do you think this fire extinguisher will work?
  3. Check for funny smell, chrono a small batch just so you don't get burned. I've had powder for almost that long that is still totally fine since it's been inside, shut tight, and kept in an air conditioned room.
  4. I don't get why they would make a tube, and extensions for the tube. Why not make the tube 40 or 50 rounds long, and just have that be the magazine?
  5. The only one I've beaten up thoroughly is the JP, and it's performed admirably. I'm not sure the bolt is as much of an issue as the feed ramp on your barrel, or lack thereof, at least until you get into which bolts are compatible with which (sometimes complicated) buffer assemblies. My rifle uses a relatively plain 9mm buffer as opposed to the MBX/Taccom/Blitzkrieg/JP captive systems that are more popular.
  6. Now, does a shower cap count as a retention device?
  7. Bring back the one with the soup can.
  8. The Taylors and the 4" MBXes will usually handle anything a USPSA course will throw at you. I have two of the 6" MBXes just because.
  9. For mandatory reloads I'm rolling with the factory mags, either pistol or 31rders, just 'cause I don't feel bad dropping them. The 57-rounder has run fine, but they're not kidding about having to deflash the mag and bevel the bottom of the tube. I did a pile of 6 just because I could, basically went hog wild with a Harbor Freight square file and some 150 grit. The Taylors have also run great -- 42 rounds should be enough for just about anything USPSA-wise, but 57 rounds says "I am a man of taste and class."
  10. Suppose I should come back and eat my words. Man ammo (6.0 gr Silhouette + 115 gr plated RN as opposed to 4.2 gr Titegroup) and the Taccom feed ramp took care of the issue. I don't entirely understand why, since cycling it dry, it seemed worse. Now I just have to create more issues for myself by experimenting with different buffers and springs to avoid learning recoil control minimize dot movement
  11. HSGI Tacos, in particular the subgun ones if you really want more retention.
  12. That's something else I'll have to play with -- I did switch from Silhouette to Titegroup. I guess another buffer spring in the buffer spring drawer won't hurt.
  13. Factory ammo ran well when the rifle was brand new, but I haven't tested recently. Surprisingly enough, it ate steel and aluminum case just fine. Also, the feed ramp everyone's recommending will only band-aid the problem if the case rim isn't making it underneath the extractor during the feeding cycle.
  14. It's a bullet squished back into the case upon feeding. The important thing for me was that the case head wasn't making it directly to the bolt face, which makes me suspect sluggish or otherwise jacked up feeding. The mags didn't feel tremendously off, but I also don't have a particularly good frame of reference for how a fully loaded 33rder is supposed to feel. There was no maraca effect.
