  1. Reloading/Ammunition
    Bought another round of tomato plants today at the local Co-Op. Just happened to see that they had ammunition; plenty of .22LR, including Aguila Colibri. And brown-boxed WCC head-stamped .45 ACP for $19.99 / 50. I looked around to see if I was on "Candid Camera" or something. It all went home...
  2. Long Guns
    Stopped by Gary's in Columbus today, just snooping around. Actually was looking for one of the new Springfield Hellcats to wrap my hand around. Didn't have one, so fondled some other compacts. Liked a S&W but didn't have cash on me. On the way out went by the rifle rack and there was a Henry...

  4. General Firearms Discussion
    I heard today about a genteman in the north part of the state who is building nice air rifles. Fella said he visited the gentleman's shop and took one for a test ride. Apparently he's getting 800 fps with a 300 grain .45 projectile. From what I understand he offers several calibers as well. Any...

    I've found a guy locally (MS Gulf Coast) that is helping his neighbor's widow liquidate some .45 ACP ammo. He has approximately 10,000 rounds of mostly Wolf brand, brass cased 230 gr. FMJ. He is selling them at $100 for 500 rounds (0.20 per round). I've found them online for $59.99 for 300...

    I think I've about settled on what I want. A Commander-sized 1911 in .45 ACP (4" - 4.25" bbl). Living on the Gulf Coast, I prefer stainless, or some other corrosion-resistant finish. I've owned several GI sized models (5" bbl) from different manufacturers, and this week I went and looked at 2...

    5/1/18 LET’S RE-RUN the POLYCASE INCEPTOR .45 ACP 114 GR ARX We originally reported 2/1/18 on those Polycase Inceptor ARX 45 ACP rounds in my Ruger Blackhawk Convertible thread. In that report we noted again our experiencing some point-of-aim point-of-impact anomalies with the “hotter”...
  9. Reloading/Ammunition
    I recently found freshly-fired Tula steel .45 acp cases at our local club range. Unlike earlier iterations of steel-cased ammo, these were boxer primed, using standard size large pistol primers. I picked up a handful of them and brought them home to attempt reloading. These cases were easy to...

    I've been kind of looking for another full size 1911 after trading off my Para USA earlier this year. I'm wanting to stay in the $400-ish range. Here are some local options I've found: 1. Used Taurus $349 blued beaver-tail grip safety forward slide serrations Novak-style sights rail for...
  11. Handguns
    Any experience with compact / sub-compact .45 ACP handguns in the sub-$500 range? I'm looking at the compact 1911 by Rock Island Armory Sportsman's Guide sells a GI Compact for $399 and a Tactical Compact for $475. I used to have an Astra A-75 which is the same as a Star Firestar. I...
  12. AR's, AK's, Silencers /Class III
    In the last email add from PSA they are showing rifle and pistol AR's in .45 ACP!!! :101010:. Uses Glock mags. I want one.
  13. Reloading/Ammunition
    I'm getting everything together to load 45s for my pistols. Maybe I won't blow myself up. It will be June before I have it all together.
  14. General Firearms Discussion
    Recently my father-in-law asked me to sell 2 firearms for him (a Colt 45 Goldcup & Saiga 12). I have never sold guns of this magnitude, only a simple 22rifle a few years ago. Are there any sites online that are best to sell within Mississippi(I have joined Armslist)? Could I take them to a local...

    Okay guys I need some opinions. Has anybody shot the Shield .45? What are your thoughts? I have a Springfield XD-S .40 with the 4 inch barrel and I'm thinking about switching to the Shield .45. Any input is appreciated!!!

    Lee picked me up early and we went to the range. I took my Tisas and the .45 that Art built. Also one of my SKS's. Lee and I both are crazy about Art's .45. It shoots better than either one of us. We were tired when we left. Hot also.

    I'm very curious about the looks and the carry impact of doing a magwell extension mod to my Kimber Ultra CDP. Can anyone of you great Mississippi shooters let me know if you've done this and all the benefits vs. drawbacks of this? Thanks Guys and Gals! -Michael

    I want to go ahead and get the paperwork in for a .45 suppressor before the trust rule changes go into effect in July. I've been doing some reading about them but of course everyone says theirs is the best. I don't have a threaded .45 right now but do have a 9mm AR and a 10mm that I plan to...

    I've been wanting to do this for years, but have never gotten to the point of pulling the trigger on it. It would be an easy conversion for a 1911...just a barrel fit to your slide so you could swap them back and forth; the same magazines should work and there would be no difference in the...
