    2021 Syracuse Gun Show, day 1

    I just got back from the Syracuse show. In my 30+ years of attending the show I have NEVER seen the lines so long. A huge crowd. Not too crowded inside but really long lines to get in. Lots of happy dealers I reckon.

    Did NY ever make Body Armour, BP vests illegal?

    Good, since body armor is strictly for personal defense and cannot be used offensively.

    Loading for Black Powder

    110 grains for a .45 caliber bullet weighing 225 grains? I would cut that powder charge in half.

    Buffalo May Byron Brown gets support from Republicans.

    Byron Brown pushed through an unpopular money grabbing law involving speed cameras in school zones. I think this really hurt him.

    Are Thunderbolts still ThunderDUDS?

    During this shortage I've had to buy .22 ammo wherever I could find it. This includes some brands that I had quit years ago. Case in point: Remington Thunderbolt .22LR. I picked up a brick of these "Thunderduds" last month. I gotta say, guys, I was surprised. I'm halfway through the brick...

    Wolcott gun range, no friend to the 2nd

    I like the range, it's the closest indoor range to me now that Niagara Gun Range is closed, but I am disturbed that it hasn't reopened to the public.

    Scope for a 10/22??

    ∆∆∆ I would take Tisto up on his offer. Bushnell Banner scopes are great for .22 rifles.

    Got a nice birthday gift today, black powder pistol kit

    Nice, but I don't see a flintlock. It looks like a percussion lock gun to me. Still nice.

    .44 Bulldog

    I've had the 3" blued version for years. Mine is an early one, pre-1970. Never a problem with it when using Remington ammo or Glaser Safety Slugs.

    Old or New King Cobra?

    In truth, I have not shot the new King Cobra. I have handled one and it seems a competent gun. I own two examples of the old KC and have shot them extensively. They are outstanding guns and just better IMO.

    Old or New King Cobra?

    Original. It is a superior revolver to the current King Cobra.

    Great!! The pandemic has pushed more liberals to camp

    To quote one camper: "and when you do (find) a bathroom you will be surprised how dirty it is." Seriously, have these people ever been more than two miles from a Starbucks?

    FINALLY got my permit.

    Bullseye targets are best for training. Shoot N C are worth the cost. 8" targets at close range until you get used to your new gun.

    Preparing for .44 Magnum

    ^^^With poor fitting wood grips maybe, but with rubber grips or good wood stocks the 629 can be easily managed. I've had fifteen years of shooting a Model 29 with rubber Hogue grips. No broken bones yet. Gotta love those N-frames.

    School me on Muzzle Loaders, I want to get one before next season....

    I never use the ramrod that comes with a muzzleloader. Years ago I bought a range rod and have never looked back. Range rods are inexpensive and come in a variety of sizes. I like the yellow synthetic one the Thompson Center sells. Well worth the cost. Just my 2 cents.

    Can someone please explain to me the difference between scope and red dot

    With a scope you eye must be an exact, precise distance from the rear lens in order to see the crosshairs. With a red dot scope the distance is a LOT more forgiving. This is why all our beginner guns at camp have red dot sights.

    First reloading yield

    I was loading .45-70 last night. I don't shoot more than three boxes of .45-70 rounds each year, but with this quarantine I've had time to reload even these seldom-used rounds. But no reloading .223 for me. That's the one round I buy.

    Marlin 45/70 ammo question

    That longer bullet round concerns me. Even if it chambers it might be so long that it touches the rifling in the barrel. You don't want that to happen. The other loads look good.

    BREAKING: 1 shot at Walden Galleria

    The handgun was a stolen Ruger LCP 9mm . Perp had a round in the chamber. Probably not a good idea. He must have watched too many YouTube videos.

    Buffalo Gun Center closing

    Buffalo Gun Center is gone. An empty building when I drove by yesterday. They moved out of downtown Buffalo in the 1970's. The Harlem Road store was open for nearly half a century. There were some great deals this last few months. They had a good run. Best wishes to them, and thanks.

    9MM For Glock ?s

    124 is the standard European load. 147 is a bit slower but often more accurate. Not that the 9mm is much of a target round.

    Ruger LCP II in .22LR

    When the first micro .380 pistols came out a lot ended up in the hands of rank beginners. Many of them women. I have been to the range and watched women shoot their micro .380 at a 9" paper plate at 15 feet and miss every shot. Two hand hold, several seconds to acquire the target, and zero...

    Dang Shoot'in Steel is a lot'a Fun!!

    Ten years ago I discovered an alternative to steel. We started to use soft "shoot-through" targets made by Newbold and have never gone back to steel.. Advantages: Zero danger of ricochet so you can shoot at close range. Four color choices and lot of different shapes and sizes. No need to spray...

    .38 sp

    Back in the day the .38 was likely the FIRST round a handgun shooter ever reloaded. It was for me, at least.
