  1. Perttime...Cool Still why would a person want gloves unless bitter cold or for bianchi barricade?
  2. I found a long soft bag 1 at our local Cabelas.... not sure how long now but my benelli w long tube fits. Measure before you assume both your shotgun & the bag...
  3. No external supporting devices in uspsa pistol which includes pcc I believe. I shoot 3 gun but not uspsa or 3 gun nation.
  4. My big question is Why would you want to wear gloves unless it is bitter cold? Sling has possible merit but not legal in uspsa...
  5. Any chance that you only noticed the 2nd 1 cracked this weekend & maybe it happened some other time & just now noticed after 1st one cracked?
  6. This is the truth. Once you spend that money on it, its no longer an $800 gun & holsters but a $1200 one with a street value probably less than the $800 you spent. Your $400 is gone completely & maybe more. If it doesnt run consistently now, even getting your money back may be hard. If you tell a perspective buyer it didnt run until you sent it off to get fixed... its likely to run off most buyers. IMHO, RIA is probably not a long term 1 owner gun for anyone that shoots much. Its an entry level gun to find out if you like the platform. Sadly if it doesnt run or perform, many people will blame the 2011 platform instead of blaming themselves for buying a cheaper version of said platform. I am not beating up on RIA specifically. If you have 1 & it runs consistently & shoots 2" groups at 25yds after 25,000 rds with no rebuilds, good for you. I am happy but I am saying odds of this are very slim.
  7. There is the difference.... I see how y'all are making time. I however have a different comfort level. I like to feel every round as it goes in case gauge.... I can feel if its dragging or has a burr or anything abnormal. Also I quit boxing in cases years ago. I batch in an open box. Usually 300 at a time as that is my normal amount to load at one setting. I keep this batch separated from other batches in case of any problems that may affect this batch. If I had a squib which Ive only had 1 in last 100,000rds. That batch is segragated. Anyway I see why it helps you guys. Thanks!
  8. Sarge, but why? W 7rd gauge, you still have to put em in 1 at a time & you cant feel for any problems
  9. I havent seen value of 100rd case gauge.... you had to put those 100rds in a case... 1 at a time... educate me how the hundo is better please. Up front let me say I dont put rounds in individual round cases. I batch them by the run... 3 or 400 in a box. Ive been reloading 20years & have loaded over 135,000 rds. Almost every one has been case gauged in a single rd gauge. What am I missing? Let me add... single rd gauge allows me to feel each rd go in & come out of a gauge I know works for my guns. If there is a problem, I know which rd & can assess problem & decide yay or nay. I am not picking on you hundo users, just wondering.
  10. 1lb? Not saying but curious why anyone would order 1lb of powder shipped. I usually send out email to friends & we fill a powder valley order. If you do that with powder & primers, shipping & hazmat cost together add around $1/lb.
  11. Ivory or POSSIBLY a set from Esmerelda....something with rich but subtle color in wood. You dont want peoples eyes going to grips first... first look should be that damascus then as you drool over that, let rest of the gun & the grips push you over the top so to speak. Very nice gun!
  12. For me that doesnt really make sense... look at it from a mechanical standpoint... Your knuckles on your hand are pivot points, aka hinges, correct? They pretty much are a hinge with some sideways movement built into the hinge. Now youre going to take a hinge that when applied to front of trigger guard has sideways flexibility & strength & attempt to stop up & down movement....????? Which this hinge is not built to do really. If you apply more pressure to this hinge with grip strength, youre pulling the gun sideways, correct? Maybe if you want to use finger on front of trigger guard, you should modify & use the old revolver grip " cup & saucer" which would at least allow you to pull down on trigger guard instead of pulling sideways... just kidding but really look at your finger on the trigger guard. Which way can you apply force?
  13. Pressure goes down with more space in the case. Not sure the problem but its not because you have more room...
