    me and a friend took up hydro dipping, doing small things for friends and others to make side $ and its pretty cool to turn a normal gun into something one off!

    here is a high point 380 in marble transparent film. Done a 2 tone paint job.

    I love the idea of this, but I have a feeling that no matter how hard you try, if an authority were to look at that gun that you modify they'll find something wrong.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd love for this to be done and if you do it post pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just getting started.
    I'm a diehard fan of the ultra concealable Rohrbaugh R9, 9mm. Ultra dependable too. many to choose from, but this is my go-to carry piece.

    Sweet gun. I always wanted one, but I carry everyday and at work. I would shed a tear if I put that gun through the abuse I put my keltec through. I routinely have to clean my keltec to keep the rust off. --I work the beach sometimes and do ATV patrol and the sand gets everywhere. I can get 3 Keltecs for the price of one Rohrbaugh.

    so, has anyone heard about the .22 TCM? apparently it is a .223 that has been shortened a lot. first time I saw it was in a 1911 format, apparently R made by Rock Island.

    I haven't seen them in person, but after reading about them, I am intrigued

    If you love the 5.7x28mm but always wanted it in a 1911, the 22 TCM is your answer. You're dealing with the same issues a lot of wildcats face though - limited ammo and brass, limited bullet selection and limited shooting platforms. Life's too short - shoot what you want.

    The problem with proprietary rounds is that nobody controls market price but the maker

    Seems like you could make the brass from .223 if you are a reloader. It sounds like a fun cartridge. Maybe someday I'll manage to get one

    Got the barrel, forend, and magizine cap dipped last night. Came out pretty good! This stuff is not easy to work with for sure! I ran out of film so I ordered more to finish up the stock/receiver.

    I didn't have any of the mil buckshot for the test, but I've heard that the grex buffering makes it spread relatively quickly. I was referring to the Federal stuff, which patterns like a laser through my shotgun.

    Here is one for ya, I've been picking up range brass and found some odd primer strikes, looks almost like a square it seems like. Any ideas on what guns do this?

    Looks good!

    I sprayed the old Mossberg last year. Turned out OK. Not sure how many seasons it'll hold up though.

    Thanks! I think this set up will be durable. The base coat and the clear both have a hardener added before being sprayed. I messed up on the stock and couldn't completely remove the dried film with 400 grit sandpaper, so it should hold up well.

    That looks good! I am starting to think that I should have have gone the simpler route. This project is turning into a pain in the ass!

    cool, i was wondering what did it, nice to know what it was. I got a nice load of range brass today, though only about half of what I would have liked, someone there had already picked up most of the handgun ammo. got a bit of .303 brit, 7mm rem mag, over 100 38 spl/.357 and a bit of everything else, even managed 5 empty .50 AE (desert eagle)


    entertaining range day. I'm toying with the idea of sweeping up all the brass rimfire casings and recycling them for scrap, yellow brass is at about 2 bucks a pound, and a 5 gallon bucket would hold a decent amount.
