    Arizona & Utah both have permits AND constitutional carry. The permit recognizes a few more liberties in AZ, I'm unsure about Utah (although I have a Utah permit).

    There are a handful of holders that are basically a shelll-holder with a center post that tightens against the brass - they're a pretty good balance of secure grip, and easy change. K&M and others...

    Summit 14x40

    I bought my current lathe ~20 years ago, the company is still around, but I think their smallest machine now is a 16x60. For the uninitiated "14x40" means you can turn a 14" diameter piece, 40" long...

    I doubt they are - I've never seen a tolerance spec on the length, which would presumably be stated if they were.

    BUT, I think the reason the "real" standards are full-scale is to detect any distortion in the threaded rod at the heart of the thing - if it's bent or stretched that should show up on a full-range...

    Neither my Springfield 1911 nor my M&P Pro are tapered, haven't checked the Glock, but I doubt they've ever been. My older Kimbers *are* tapered - the only guns I own that are. Tru-Glo (and most...

    I disagree

    That was once common, but no longer is. It provides no real benefit (other than trying to figure out which way to drive a sight in or out). Most current manufacturers sell sights with parallel...

    Absolutely!

    Definitely. For sight cuts I like to make that center cut a couple thou deeper than my dovetail depth as well - makes it a little easier to get the sight in & out, but still holds "plenty much good...

    You did say no bumps...

    ...but I think that's normal when it can't reach a stable tare weight. On older RCBS units I had that problem frequently due to poor power quality.

    Excellent!

    What bullet sizing die / pusher did you use? Might try this myself.

    Meza is, indeed, brain dead, but she didn't actually say that. It's from a satirical piece about her idiotic legislation.

    Interesting

    Seems eminently reasonable. Do you recall what the cutoff size for 'expendable' was? How 'bout you Jackie? How big and/or expensive does a drill need to be to warrant sharpening?

    Probably around $700-$1000 - and declining

    Great rifle, but strides in airguns in the past 10-15 years are leaving the older 'great guns' in the dust. Glad you said you're keeping it - that's probably the best way to get value from it! (...

    Any pellet prep?

    Are you sorting pellets, washing & lubing, or skirt forming? I'm wondering if you could weed out that 'spiraling flyer' ahead of time.
