Re: Tula Ammo

You might want to try Academy's house brand, Monarch, for practice. It's cheap (especially on sale) and haven't had feed or firing problems with it.

Re: General Cleaning of P64

I would not advise soaking in pain thinner or any solution for 24 hours. Really soaking at all. If you are wanting to clean and decrease, there are specific products that can do this or you could use a non-chlorinated brake fluid. I personally cannot see the need to do so unless you are trying refi...

Re: Latest grip from PI

I may be accused of wanting to have my cake and eat it too, but... Have you considered adding cushioning to the rear of your grip to absorb some of the shock? I would think that would combine the best of both worlds. Just a thought.

Re: problem with the hammer?

Re: P64 Range Report

I haven't had a jam since I went to loading five rounds in the magazine. YMMV.
