I'd pay to hand Terry my 19 and see him hit a 220 yard target on the first shot again! Maybe even like a whole dollar even...

for real.

you get higher quality ammo tailored to your exact needs for significantly less!

Try finding a reduced plinking loaf for my .45-70 thats commercially loaded. Nope!

Right?

Terry, we'll have to try and replicate this next time we go out.

Especially if you have your long range loads down to a science. You can load some seriously accurate rounds. Then you turn around and sell them to others at $2 a pop. Or you are like me and load 1,000 of .223 and have to hammer them all out because you didn't make sure your measure was measuring properly every time. Now I check every 10th round.

I am checking EVERY round. My RCBS powder measure is pretty good...+/-.1g but I've become pretty obsessive about consistency.

lolz. that sucks.

Also cannot legally engage in the sale of your reloads unless an 06 FFL or something stupid like that.

Sellin' em to your brother or buddy, nobody will probably notice, but you cant like, actively sell them.

Ha.

I just dip my little scoop into a cereal bowl full of powder, use a business card to scrape it off, and then dump it in the casing.

Highly scientific, i tell you.

You really have to with the kind of shooting you are doing. Most of what I load is handgun and I'm not as worried about it. The stuff I load up for my garand I'm pretty careful with just because I don't want to break it.

In some cases, there are people who know. Unfortunately, it isn't 100%, but nothing is ever 100% anyway. Take Lucinda Roy, professor at Virginia Tech.

Here's a good article about her. She warned everyone who would listen, and nothing...
http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2...ubled-students

There were warning signs for the Columbine shooters too. And the same with the Colorado movie theater shootings.
People close to these nut cases knew these people were not right. Often it's teachers who really know who the future nuts and convicts are going to be.

We have spoken and you know I am not in favor of any bans on particular weapons or magazines. That will clearly do nothing.
Nor do I favor gun registrations of any kind.
I have even thought of letting kids take target shooting classes in Gym class to familiarize them with the safe handling of guns. That might help cut down the frequency of accidental shootings.

This subject needs to be thought out and studied. We don't need knee jerk reactions (Like the present proposals) but there is a solution to every problem.
So far I like the NRA proposal of having trained armed guards in schools.

People need to know they are going to pick up their kids from school without being full of holes.
Some of these kids were literally shot to pieces. Not acceptable...

Hi, I've got a question for you all. I moved here a few months ago and recently a coworker said something about a thing called a blue card she said I have to get for each of my guns? What exactly is it and do I actually need one for every gun? Sounds like a huge hassle considering I have allot of guns. Plus a couple of them are antiques we don't fire. Thanks!

From what I understand you just need a blue card for pistols. A blue card is just a registration card.

A blue card is a registration receipt only. All handguns (revolvers, semi auto, pistols, etc.) must be registered by taking them to a police station and completing the necessary paperwork and allowing them to inspect them. I am not sure how antiques are handled, I recommend calling ahead.

Currently long guns do not require registration.

I agree that there are warning signs for those that are going to go on a rampage and all too often those warning signs go either unnoticed or unheeded. That however is only part of the problem. The shooter at Newtown was noticed and heeded. He was a known psyhchotic and had been diagnosed with a personality disorder, asperger syndrome, and sensory integration disorder. Under the care of a psyhchatrist for most of his life, he was not allowed under Federal Law to own a firearm. Yet, that did nothing to stop him and for most news agencies, that part doesn't make the news. Basically, all it proves is that if there is a will, there is a way. The same day in China a man walked into a school and stabbed something like 80 students.

My main point was that walking down the street, for the most part, you can't tell the nuts from the sane. You can't read a persons mind and you can't foresee every eventuality so therefore, legislation does nothing. That is why the NRA proposal works. All these nutcases know is force on force. They should know that if they walk into a school and start shooting they are going to be met with force. Instead; our elected officials make it illegal for my sister, a law abiding teacher with a concealed carry permit, to carry in her place of work. They make it illegal for me, a law abiding Government employee with a concealed carry permit, to carry in my place of work. How does that make any sense?
