Dissecting Glock’s “This Spring” Ad

Earlier today, Glock posted this picture on their Facebook page, with the caption “This Spring”. They said nothing else about it. Well, if you’re like me, you’re hoping that this could mean a super special new spring to fit in the Glock unicorn singlestack 9mm pistol that we all hope exists somewhere behind lock and key in Smyrna, GA. I decided to do a little digging into this picture to see what I could come …

LEAKED: Walther CCP Owners Manual

I’m excited about the Walther CCP, and have been since it was announced. I probably won’t buy one, but I think it stands as a cool pistol that I’ll definitely want to get some range time with. Not long ago, I found out that the owners manual for the Walther CCP has been leaked on the Walther website (100 page .pdf). The owners manual gives us a better look into how the pistol works, so …

Adventures in Reloading #5 – Crappy Brass

I came across this brass while reloading the other day. Headstamp reads “IMT 9mm Luger”. You’ll notice on the cut out piece of brass that there’s a ridge on the inside of the case where the brass gets thicker, as opposed to normal brass that thickens gradually down the length of the case. The trouble I ran into with this stuff was when running it into the crimp die, sometimes they would stick. They would …

[Video] Singlestack 9mm Concealed Carry Pistols

I get a lot of questions about why I recommend certain singlestack 9mm concealed carry pistols and not others. Rather than type up a big long blog post, I figured I’d do something a little different and fire up the camera gear and do a video on the singlestack 9’s in my life, and why I like them. It basically comes down to a set of criteria that I’ve mentioned a few times: – 7+1 …

Lee Turret Press Speed

Since starting to reload using the Lee Turret Press, the most common questions I get asked is how fast it is. My particular Lee Turret is the value model, and currently I don’t have the auto-index parts for it, so I manually turn the turret to each station. I’m using the Lee safety prime, and Lee auto-disk powder measure. Starting with clean brass I loaded 100 rounds of 9mm (115gr Berry’s plated bullets over Unique …

Adventures in Reloading #4 – Stickage

Since starting to reload 9mm I’ve been having some issues with ammo getting loaded that sticks in the chamber of a couple of my guns. I originally thought that this had to do with the somewhat “fat” ogive of the bullets I’m using so I began to load them a bit shorter, and shorter trying to back them off of the rifling a bit so that they wouldn’t stick in the chamber anymore. I originally …
