    Home Brewers

    I went to Brew Your Own Bottle this past weekend and brewed up a Belgian Summer Ale. Getting addicted to this hobby. Anyone a member of a homebrew club?

    NICS going online? 15min good to go.

    Massachusetts has an online repository to validate their firearms licensing. It was pretty locked down and enabled me to buy as many firearms as I pleased. Only required a fingerprint or super long secret code number.

    How to Legally Dispose of Bad Ammo

    Thanks for the advice, both humorous and serious. I'll likely list them up this weekend. Cheers, James

    How to Legally Dispose of Bad Ammo

    I bought them when I first bought my rifle - didn't realize they were reloaded as I got them from a gun shop back in MA. I didn't see any notes that they were reloaded and didn't know enough about reloading at the time to notice the fairly obvious marks on the rounds. The primary defect with them, as I stated, is that the neck wasn't re-sized and deburred effectively, leaving a sharp rim of sorts that expands on firing and jams the cartridge in the chamber. Not a super safe situation and would likely foul a semi-auto platform if it's binding up a bolt action - when I say stuck, I mean waiting will not come out of battery stuck. Gunsmith scoped the chamber and said the damage, while permanent, was caught before there was any sort of performance impacting issues. Anyone looking for some janky .308?
  5. I'm finding myself in a weird spot where I bought some bad ammo without my knowledge. It jammed up my Rem 700 like a mother - so bad, that I brought it to a gunsmith to inspect thinking that it was the rifle, not the ammunition. Come to find out, I was sold a bunch of reloads that hadn't been de-burred and the nicks were bad enough that it was seizing the round in the chamber after firing. Needless to say, I'm not too keen on the stuff and I have probably a 100 or 200rds of the stuff left and I want it gone... but it's not really safe to shoot in any gun AND you can't so much throw live rounds in the trash. So, how does a non-reloading guy like myself dispose of the ammunition legally such that it doesn't hurt anyone else's piece? Cheers, James
  6. Anyone else going? I'm headed down for my first shot at a steel match. Should be a good time.

  10. George was a pleasure to work with - he invited me around his "shop" and showed me all kinds of goodies. I had a really great time talking shop and learning all about steel shooting - I hope to shoot with him in the future. He's already got some gunsmithing work from me and I'm looking forward to doing more business with him in the future. Greet guy! Cheers, James

    Glock Packages

    Phenomenal. I have a Glock 17 OD that is screaming for some love and a SW M&P45 that needs to be broken of it's awful MA Compliant components. I'll be PMing you. One other item for public consumption - will you accept action work on long guns? My Rem 700 has a bad habit of sticking in the locked position. Cheers, James
