Finally read the FAQs

Finally read the FAQs (3/11)

  1. I use cci mini mags but have had good results with remington golden bullets in my Kimber conversion. A glock conversion listed the golden bullets as the prefered ammo. Tim
  2. Hello,

     How old is the pistol and do you know how many rounds have been shot thru it?



    1. BigGabe


      it was made in 06 according to the SN. I've shot it probably 14 to 1500 rounds with the recommended CCI Standard velocity ammo. Pictures speak for themselves. If it's not what I say it is your welcome to send it back. Don't know what else to say.

    which cz

    Hello, Which model cz fits like a 1911 in the hand? I shoot single stack and would like something that feels similar to what I am used to. I saw the shadow 2 OR that could be used for limited and carry optic, how would it compare to the feel of a 1911? Thanks, Tim
  4. I like the S&A for the same reason as Aircooled6racer, better feel of my grip. I do sometimes carry my 1911 and I like the smaller profile of the S&A for conceal carry.
  5. I have used bayou bullets and vv 330 powder in a 16 inch barrel and haven't noticed any leading.
  6. average Joe, Diversity is fun and you're having fun. Tim
  7. Average Joe, We have the same inventory: 2 sti 2011, 9mm and 40 2 sti uspsa, 9mm and 40 3 sti lawman, all 45s 1 sti escort, 9mm 2 Kimber, 9mm and 45 I'm getting ready for the zombies. lol Tim
  8. Better watch, those 1911s can become addicting.
  9. I talked to the guy about his gun today and he said it is a springfield xd. He has a gunsmith looking it over to see if it was a double charge or if it fired out of battery . I don't know if he will be able to tell what happened. Tim
  10. Hperea, I have 3 Lawman and 2 uspsa single stack models that are older guns. I think they are built to tighter tolerances than the newer guns. If you look around you can still find Trojans and Lawman pistols used at reasonable prices. I got the Lawman guns because they are forged frames but I don't think you can go wrong with cast frame gun. Unfortunately, to stay competitive companies cut corners and produce items of less quality and always seem to want more money. Just the world we live in today. Tim
  11. I have 8 sti- pistols and they have all been great for the money. Six are single stacks and two are edges and they have all run flawlessly. I'm not scaring any of the good shooters but that isn't because of the pistols. I had a rear sight problem with one of the edge pistols and they replaced the sight, went thru the gun and returned it in 11 days. I trust one of the 1911 pistols enough to carry it daily as a conceal carry. The older ones were great guns, I can't say about the new ones. Tim
  12. I have been handloading for 55+ years and after looking at Navadazielmiesters post I'm glad I still have all my fingers and Nose. Tim
  13. Bayou bullets sold their 180 grain 40 cal. with a lube groove and I see they now have replaced them with a bullet with no groove, I have shot both bullets and see no difference in accuracy and without the groove you can load longer and not worry about the groove affecting feeding, Tim
  14. Being from the Midwest and the cold weather you can use your oven and when you're done open the oven door and heat the house while the oven cools down, Makes the kitchen real cozy. Tim
  15. Living in the mountains, I dry them in the oven at 170 degrees for 30 minutes in the winter and on a picnic table in the sun on a cookie sheet during summer months. Tim
