    Sometimes you get lucky, but, yeah, what he said, right there.

    Is bare kydex against your skin a problem for you, or not? If not, give a look at JM Custom Kydex. Good luck with your quest. I hate looking for holsters most of anything, moving into a new gun. And online holster reviews and recommendations are usually worthless. More worthless than usual. (Don't care so much for Aliengear, or the hybird holster concept. I moved on to preferring the kydex taco style, with snap loops.)
  3. And I'll weigh in. A progressive press is not good for a beginner. There's way too much going on, all at once, with each pull of the handle, for a newbie to keep track of. Start with buying a reloading manual, and reading the instructional chapters. I started with the Lyman manual. For a good press for a noob, my recommendation is to get a Lee Classic Turret kit. The kit bundles a lot of other things that you'll need. This press can be run as a (essentially) single stage press by removing the indexing rod. With the indexing rod in place, the turret automatically rotates, station by station, giving you much better speed than a single stage. In the "Before Time", the kit would have run you in the low $200s, to which you have to add a die set. No idea what they'd run now, if they can be found. The Pro 1000 I found to be quite frustrating. I gave up on it multiple times. Ditto the Loadmaster. The Pro 1000 has been redesigned since I had mine, and I've seen no reviews on the new version. Looking at the current instruction sheet, It looks like the current version has addressed the frustrating indexing problems that I experienced with that press. I currently have the Lee Breech Lock Pro, aka "Pro 4000", which is a much better press. Yeah, and good luck finding small pistol primers.
  4. I suspect every place is like that.
  5. So I'm not the only one to feel relief that the legislature isn't in session. Nothing "fixed", but nothing further broken.
  6. OK, I guess. Talon Grips has been my go-to for that sort of thing, and they have one for the G2C. Tastes vary, but I don't think that Taurus needs it at all.
  7. I'm unsure as to what the question is. I see no pic. The G2C's grip texture is, to me (IMHO&YMMV) pretty good. Grippy in patches, but not overwhelmingly so. "Good gun for the money" (but a sucky rear sight. Again, IMHO&YMMV). Essentially a baby Glock with a long enough grip for my big hands to hold on to. Taurus revolver. Looks like a S&W Model 10 clone. Might be OK. Probably on the large side for carry. Check it over real good. See https://tinyurl.com/revocheck
  8. As a possible intermediate step, consider a Lee Classic Turret Press Kit. The Classic Turret is a fine press, and if you remove the indexing rod, it functions as a single stage. The "kit" package gets you pretty much everything else you need, except for a die set.
  9. I would start with buying the Lyman manual separately, and reading the informational chapters. This will give you an understanding ("book learnin'") of the process. Ideally, I would say you should start with a single stage press. There's way too much going on at once with a progressive for a newbie to keep track of.
  10. Expires 4/13/2019. Saw the renew button go active after Christmas, and did my part of the renewal process. Today I noticed "issued 12/31/2019 Expires 12/31/2023". So, very quick renewal, but I lost 4 months by jumping the gun. I checked again, and I misremembered. Ran the renewal 12/19, saw on 12/29 it was active. And just today (1/17/2018) finally receive the new card, along with a new FOID.
