It's been awhile since I've been on. I had a rough winter, but I'm back at it. I'm looking for a CZ, Mallard, 12ga. I have a nice Smith 66-I, that I would be willing to trade for it. Thanks
My wife carries a Taurus 85 ultra light 38spcl with crimson trace grips. I load Hornady 140gr XTP's for it. They shoot very well, with little recoil. I'm not worried about losing any penetration with the lighter loads. 99% of bad guys aren't going to stay and fight it out after getting hit with...
If your going to have someone mill the lettering off, have them do it in a CNC so they can engrave it at the same time. I too was a little bummed about the lettering on my last build. Barrel was stamped 257 ACK. Maybe I'm OCD!

Just faxed my reamer print out to Carrrie. Great CS so far. Can't wait to have it in my hands! I hate fireforming. I'll report back with my results.
