First a word from the people that made this page possible:
The U. S. Constitution doesn't guarantee happiness, only the pursuit of it. You have to catch up with it yourself.
Benjamin Franklin
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
James Madison, The Constitution of the United States of America

To perform some of the tasks outlined on this website you will be required to follow detailed instructions for the assembly and disassembly of long and hand held firearms. Attentions to order and required cleanliness to do some of the operations, normally handled ant the armorers level, is easy but restricted to most users because a Mis-installed part can cause injury and death. I still have a scar on my thumb from checking out a friends gun on the range. I assumed it was not totally made dysfunctional by his tampering with the 1911 disconnect. I pointed it down range and was cocking it as he said there was one in the pipe. Again misleading as to the functioning of the gun. So I cocked the hammer and let it go ..The gun went off and almost took my thumb clear off with the slide instantly comming back when I released the hammer. I was stupid then but had already built several 1911s from bare slides and frames so I was no armature just stupid to trust someone without completely disassembling the gun and finding the problem which I was wrong in thinking was an ejection problem he was having. I try to cover the spots to help people not hurt themselves with notes in the detailing instructions.

Gunsmithing requires an careful but adventurous nature who is familiar with tools, especially drills, files and pin punches and vices lapping compounds and stones.

Most of my reloading will only apply to the long range target shooter who wants to obtain more cases from a lot of cases to match them either by water volume or the internal ballistics of the cases when fired.My program works for each method of matching cases. But what the program does produces a list of individual loads for each case that has been thought the internal ballistics tests and will tighten the Muzzle Velocity considerably on a wider assortment of cases. But like my target days with the 1911. At fifty feet any variation in bullet, case and powder weight mattered little to get into the center. AT a thousand yards a half a grain of powder it is only slightly noticed but the further out you go the more critical the power, case and bullet selection are.

The powder scales available to most people can read a tenth of a grain which really means that it can be +0.05 grains or -0.05 grains. The solution to this is the tedious beam balance or develop a method to measure the electronic scales trip over point. You cur some grains of powder into small pieces so you wind up with a pile of ½ of a piece of powder and cutting that you can get a pile of ¼ of a piece of powder. Now you dump you charge of powder into the scale and adjust the charge to be just one full piece below the target. Blow across the scale and let it settle a few times to be sure you are below the target charge and then start adding a ¼ piece of powder and blow again a few times. If the reading did not change as add another ¼ piece and keep doing it till you get the target number to come up on the scale. Blowing is the easy way a hand powered fan would be more appropriate since you would hot be adding more moisture that required. Use a pair of soft tweezers to add the pieces and not your fingers.

These pages were produced from my text read by my own web page generator program. The mistakes are all in my text so do not blame my program for the grammar and spelling. It used to be said about computers: "Put garbage in, get garbage out," For me its "Put dyslexic in and get dyslexic out. The programming is easy. It never lets me make a mistake. It stops immediately and will not do another thing until I correct my programming error. It ain't that way with spelling or grammar for a dyslexic person My spellchecker either puts in the wrong word or I pick the wrong meaning from the list of choices.
