  1. Works just fine in VA
  2. I believe the whole purpose of cleaning brass is to not damage or introduce grit into the dies. It would not make sense to me to size prior to cleaning the brass. I use standard dry tumble with corncob or walnut media.
  3. What a difference a state makes. I was amazed when I found primers, powder and bullets for sale at the WalMart in Woodstock, VA. They stock a great selection for great prices.
  4. I hunt in Canada twice a year with a group of retired Canadian military guys. Nobody is allowed to carry handguns except LEO and military. According to the RCMP in order to carry for protection in the woods: "In general, the only firearms allowed for wilderness protection are non-restricted rifles and shotguns. The following individuals, provided they are Canadian residents and have a licence that allows them to possess restricted firearms, may be authorized to carry a handgun or restricted long gun for wilderness protection: licensed professional trappers, and individuals who need protection from wild animals while working at their lawful occupation, most often in a remote wilderness location." I would recommend mailing your handgun from the last CONUS state you will be traveling through prior to entering Canada to yourself at a location in Alaska and doing the reverse for the return trip.
  5. I use a bore snake and wipe down the barrel and receiver with CLP. It is like my Ruger MKI, never disassembled. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I was given a case of Break Free CLP bottles along with a 1 gallon jug in the late 1980's that I got from a friend that was an armorer. This is the original Teflon stuff and that is what I use for lubing my guns (except for grease on the reveiver of the Garand, M1A and Mini14). I prefer Hoppe's solvent for cleaning. Never had an issue with this combination. I have tried some of the newer wonder lubes and was not impressed enough to switch.
  7. I live within an hour of Ft Shenandoah and heard bout the North-South Shooting Association (N-SSA) from a guy at a gun shop. It seems very interesting to me. They shoot civil war era guns, reproductions are allowed if on the approved list. I was wondering if anyone on the forum has any experience or insight into this type of shooting. I will be going to watch a match this weekend. It looks huge and there are teams from all over that attend. I started looking at the approved list of guns and have no real clue about what to buy. Any insight is greatly appreciated.
  8. I had a situation like this before and used spray, didn't really work. I hired a pest control guy that used a powder and destroyed the nest. What type are they? European or Bald Faced? The European and not aggressive unless the nest is disturbed. The Bald Faced are very aggressive.
  9. I didn't ask. They also had a blued one with a really long barrel and a Leupold scope for $3000. The bluing on that one was near mint. I will check to see if they have the box for the 4". This is in rural VA, prices are very reasonable at the shop. I just look on Gunbroker the price seems excellent.
  10. A local gun shop near me in VA has a beautiful 4" nickel Python for $1700. It looks unfired.
  11. "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
  12. I just downloaded the Liberator and the 80% AR15 lower. Now to get a 3D printer. Any recommendations?
  13. Learn to reload. I just shot some reloads from 9yrs ago on Friday.
  14. "(Reuters) - A federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday that the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment protects the right to openly carry a gun in public for self-defense, rejecting a claim by Hawaii officials that the right only applies to guns kept at home."
