  1. I really would like to get a pair of these, but the only thing that's stopping me is that they don't look like they will fit under a pair of muffs without messing up the seal. Can anyone chime in on this? Edit: I see the post further up saying that they don't really work with muffs. That's too bad. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  2. I don't wet tumble anymore, but when I did I used these pins. https://stainlesstumblingmedia.com/shop/stainless-tumbling-media.html I never had any problems with any of them getting stuck in the flash holes or cases. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  3. Unique used to be under the Hercules brand before it got bought out by Alliant. My father gave me a pound of unopened Hercules Unique from the early 80s. It smelled fine when I opened it and loaded a bunch of 9mm with it. As long as it was stored correctly, its likely fine. I used current Unique load data and it shot just fine, although I started with the minimum charges just to be sure. The original Hercules version is as dirty as a coal mine, but it works. Newer Unique is significantly cleaner. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  4. I'm not knocking the Dillon case feeder by any means but a 300 case feeder on a 400 press doesn't make sense. If this is really going to be 120 bucks and it works as well, this will be a great addition for a 550. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

  6. For 100-120 bucks, I might just have to try this when it comes out. I know folks have mixed feelings about putting case feeders on the 550, but this looks like it just bolts to the primer tube and is very simple/lightweight. The question would be what is the capacity, and what if any time is saved when you have to refill the case tubes (kind of like the mini bullet feeder). Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  7. I've seen a few "gun safe" threads in this forum, I thought this might be a cool discussion. I always assumed that I would end up buying one of those multi-thousand dollar gun safes when my gun collection grew to that point, but have entertained the idea of converting an empty closet to serve that purpose. Has anyone done something like this? I realize that this would be a lot more than simply throwing a reinforced door and frame on a closet, i.e. reasonable fireproofing, a thief could just smash through the drywall next to the door, etc. I feel like this would be a cool project and would end up with more room on the inside, and not have a huge hulking safe somewhere in the house. I've read various things about a lot of those big expensive safes being a joke for thieves to get into anyway. Anyone do this? Pics of your setup? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  8. I'm probably going to go from the 550 to the 650 at some point when I get more space. I "want" the 1050, but any way I look at it, it doesn't make sense for my production needs. If I can do 500-800rph with a case feeder and MBF, that's good for me. Even if I doubled my current shooting output, it would only be a few hours a month. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  9. I don't think it matters if they sell a single pistol. This is about the publicity of being featured in a huge movie series that most gun people like for the entertainment value. Personally, I think it's a great move even if the gun is ridiculous (which it is) lol. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  10. According to info on their website between 15-18. https://www.thebluebullets.com/aboutus.asp Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. Is it pretty obvious when you have a squib? I've never had one and always worry a little that I wouldn't notice if I was blazing through a stage. I'm pretty careful when I reload, but you never know I guess. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. I know I'm late to the party here, but in my opinion it just isn't worth buying a traditional Office license anymore, and it's Microsoft's ultimate goal to eliminate is purchasing model anyway. For under $100 bucks a year you can just purchase an Office365 Personal Subscription. Any new versions of Office are covered by the subscription, you can install it on as many personal computers as you want, and you get 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage with that as well.

  13. Overall I don't really care, I just shoot my division and that's what I concentrate on. However, the only thing that slightly irks me is that it seems to water down the classification system. I know at least 2 D class pistol shooters who just rolled in with a PCC and magically became B class USPSA shooters. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Its not there anymore. I think what everyone is trying to figure out is if this page https://stiguns.com/product-lineup/edge/ Was there before and they removed the link because the gun is dead, or if it's a new page and they are relaunching the gun. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    It's obvious that STI is trying to reinvent themselves to appeal to the more high end tacticool mainstream market. I'm sure you'll be able to buy cargo pants with that cute 2011 logo soon. I guess I can't really blame them for that business wise. Outside of competition, I've never met anybody who even knew what an STI was. If the Edge is gone, that's a real bummer. It was a great price point to get people into a good shooting 2011. What's the next option for a 2011 in the 2000-2500 range now? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
