    New Gift (barrel issue?)

    Just received a Browning 9mm. Did some searching, made in Belgium in 1969. It looks like it has never been fired, if it has, not too many rounds. Absolutely zero wear, all bluing looks new. The case definately protected it. Was concerned because it looked like the barrel had a stress crack...

    My first Reloads

    Quite the sense of accomplishment. I'm liking this. powder was the hardest component to find, ended up with some Red Dot and Clays. Decided to load with the RedDot first. Loaded some at 4.7, some at 5.0grains. the 5.0 was definately snappier. I had 2 rounds that did not fire. primer was...

    Subcompact results

    First, thanks to those that helped with suggestions. Now that I've put a number of rounds through the G30sf, I really like it. It feels almost the same as my G21sf. Thumb and 3 fingers are almost identical. I've attached 2 pictures of the 2 stacked, and it is obvious that most of these...
