  1. Semi-Auto Handguns
    Some of you know that I often bash Glocks as being inexpensive alternatives to better handguns - but I assure you almost all of that is in jest. As a matter of fact one of my top three trusted, defensive handguns is a Glock. And I know this happens to all gun makes, but this happened today...

    I was cleaning my Remington 770, as I was wiping the bolt, I twisted the end. The part behind the handle. Now I can't twist it back and the nub doesn't line up with the guide into the reciver. The bolt will go in then stops at that part. Any advice?

    Just had my oil burner serviced after it died overnight. Tech showed me the cone around the nozzle was clogged with a thick gummy black residue and some bright green residue. The stuff was a pia to clean off. After asking if I was using any kind of additives, I realized the last couple of...

For the first 700 or so rounds the pistol ran like a champ. about a month or two ago I notice on the last few rounds in the magazine (hollow point) bullets would get hung up on the feed ramp.
