  1. After that, it’s worth checking this page periodically to make sure you’re not missing out: https://lapolicegear.com/lapg-promotions Their urban ops pants are one of the best deals going (IMO).
  2. Same. I’ve been lucky (just a few slow shipping times) but still regard them as vendor of last resort.
  3. The three Austin Powers movies have aged FAR better than I would have expected them to when released. History of the World, Part I Ghostbusters Tropic Thunder
  4. I've started doing much the same for range practice, but using an email in the Drafts folder that can be modified as I go - either adding to (e.g. double check that I have spare batteries for the chrono or shot timer) or for checking off as stuff goes in the vehicle. Took a break for a few years. First match back I showed up with a non-functional holster. Now a backup (or two) are part of the checklist.
  5. I've always viewed the hammer test as useful for home-done application jobs, to see if your process needs to be tweaked/modified. If you finish coating some bullets and they fail the hammer test, you may want to re-look your coating process and product before loading up rounds and taking them to the range (wasting time and components). I've never really considered hammer-testing a commercial product. I'm not going to tweak a company's coating methods, and I've already paid for (and obtained) the bullets. As others have said...

My 45 ACP cast stuff does well (Lee 230 grain round nose), but Lee doesn't make a 147 grain mold (and my experiments with my 6-gang 124 grain 9mm Lee mold produces inconsistent results - mostly a LOT of flashing on the dropped bullets). I've been looking around for a Lyman 147 but can't seem to locate one in stock (had one on backorder from Midway for what seems like ages now). Debating rolling the dice on the Lee 358-150-1R and sizing to 356... I'm in the same boat as you - no shortage of projectiles on hand, but I have a couple b
  8. Previously Wilderness Instructor, but I've recently taken a liking to the Ares Gear Aegis belt.
  9. While I don't want to be That Guy to say "just go dry fire", that is the direction I'm headed. I was already inclined that direction (need to work dryfire), but ammo being tight got me to take the time to focus on that aspect.
