    Anyone have any experience with a NYS gun law book titled: Firearms and Weapons Laws Gun Control in New York by Lt. Lee O. Thomas, NYS Police (Ret.), Jeffery Chamberlain, Esq. Is it any good, accurate, understandable? (as understandable as NYS gun laws can be) I am pretty sure it is written...

    I bought a police trade-in 870 Wingmaster Magnum last week. I noticed that the barrel was pretty loose fitting and had side to side play (none forward- backward) even with the magazine cap tightly screwed in. Luckily, I had purchased a +1 extension, which when applied locked the barrel tightly...

    My chokes come loose after like 5 shots and then I have to retighten them. It's not a big deal but do you guys have issues like this? It's annoying as hell for me. What do you guys do to keep the chokes from loosening up? I'm shooting a Benelli Supersport.
  12. Reloading
    Anybody else notice when seating a bullet into a necked down 40 S &W case to reload 357 Sig the bullet is always loose no matter how little a flare you make? Is this because a necked down 40 S&W case makes a slightly shorter than spec 357 Sig case? I'm using a Lee Classic Turret Press with the...

    My browning maxus barrel had some rotational and side to side looseness. This shotgun doesn't have a forend cap like most shotguns it has a "speed lock" device holding the barrel and forend to the reciever. I really thought there was something wrong with the gun so i sent it back to browning...

    The elevation screw in the rear sight of my S&W 41 has a tendency to loosen after a day of shooting causing the sight to "drift". Any suggestions on what to put on the screw that will still allow adjustment, but not allow the screw to loosen? Blue loctite would probably not allow adjustment...
