  1. They make .357 Magnum Desert Eagles.
  2. Maybe someday they'll make a P220 Legion in 10mm.... *swoon*
  3. Butler Ford - hah! I love the analogy!These says, I find thinking to be more like a down hill stroll the more coffee I have percolating in my system. Regarding the Sig P220SAO (Single Action Only) - yes, Sig Sauer makes single action only P220s and P226s, and they are delightful. I believe they started making them in the early-to-mid-2000's. I remember reading "Guns & Ammo" or some other similar magazine when the news came out, and the P220SAO instantly shot to the top of my "must have" list. I finally found a very early German frame gun last year, and I traded a stock full-sized P320 9mm and $300 cash for it. It shoots very well, but I'll be honest, I haven't had time to really wring out what load the gun likes best. I've had decent luck with 4.6 grains of Bullseye under a 200-grain Lyman cast SWC, but I've found Sigs REALLY like the H&G 68 bullet profile and I've run out of those. The stainless P220ST in the picture ate 'em all up! I either need to get a mould for the H&G 68 or buy some more; it's really a great .45ACP bullet. The next dream gun evolution in my P220 lusting is one in 10mm. Someday....
  4. I live to be a range brass vulture. http://www.shtfblog.com/its-the-most-wonderful-time-of-the-year/
  5. I'm right here with you. I haven't counted my powder types, but I bet it's close to 20. I don't really stray too far from what works. I like IMR 4198 for its versatility in small cases like .222 and .223, and it works well in large straight-walled cartridges like .45-70. IMR-4064 for .30-'06, .308, .270. Bullseye for 9mm and .45, with a tip of the hat to 231 or Titegroup for the same. Unique for .38, .357, .44 Mag, .45 Colt.
  6. I have a pretty substantial BOB/GHB in my truck, but if I'm heading out the door in the wife's Subaru with family in tow, I usually grab my Condor pistol bag that has (what I consider) the bare essentials: -Sig P320 Compact 9mm, with Streamlight TLR-1 and three spare mags - two with Sig Elite V-crown 124 grn JHP, and one with 115-grain Winchester ball ammo, kydex holster and mag pouch -two Bic lighters -Clip-on Suunto compass -small first-generation Leatherman -Streamlight Polytac flashlight and a couple spare CR123A batteries -pistol lanyard -two MRE entrees -zip-lock bag with toilet paper for use after the MREs -small tube of hand sanitizer -small tube of Advil, a couple band-aids and triple antibiotic -RATS Tourniquet -small folding HK knife I did a write-up a couple years ago on the bag; it's evolved a bit since then. http://www.shtfblog.com/build-a-grab-n-go-pistol-bag-for-less-than-500/ All our automobiles have either sleeping bags or wool disaster blankets and a few bottles of water in them. I also carry on my person at all times a Benchmade Mini-Griptilian folder, a Streamlight Microstream or Fenix LD02, and a Magpul Tejas gunbelt.
  7. I ran 1911s - specifically a Colt 1991 I'd hot rodded a bit with Wilson internals, a King's trigger, and Trijicon sights. I, too, prefer the arched mainspring housing, so I installed one of those with a lanyard staple, and a wide-spur GI hammer. It shot great; I came out first in my IDPA class first time I took it through a local match. But then I found Sig P220s and I never looked back. Oh, hey, look - that one on the top is cocked & locked.
  8. any info on the pic problem I am having

    1. Drew_Forge


      Hey Snake,

      The way I do it is just click the "choose files" link when posting pictures. Then I browse to the appropriate folder, and hold down the shift key and click whatever files I want to upload. Then I let 'er rip. Hopefully that helps.

  9. Ok tell me the secret I got to upload one pic and you seem to have been able to do more what am I doing wrong ?


  10. Snake, how do those hogs taste? Always wanted to try hunting them. I know that hogs are spreading quickly; I imagine they will be in Maine within a decade.
  11. 14" of snow according to my yardstick as of 8:30 pm EST...
  12. Another 18-24 inches of snow forecasted today for my neck of the woods. I soldiered in the 15 miles to work in my trusty 4WD Tacoma, but MAN do other people suck driving in the snow. Makes me wonder how many of them are actually prepared in case they end up heading for the tooleys! No actual info here, just a rant. Cabin fever and winter to fatigue is starting to set in. That is all.
  13. Actually, I was liking the joke, not the Patel comment, though I suppose that's applicable too!
  14. Do any of you have any experience with Geiger counters? Can you make any recommendations or note things to look for when shopping for one? I know quite literally nothing about them - total radiation noob. Thanks!
