    Thoughts for a Friday.....Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach that person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks.

    New Member figuring out the site

    New Guy checking in. Im still learning how to navigate the site. Love it so far. Not alot of drama, only good info.

  6. I have been reading some the members articles for some time. Today,I read some people were trying to locate Magazines (9 Rounds type) for the YUGO M57 Pistol and decided to give all a place to buy them and it as follows;


    US made Yugoslavian M57 Tokarev 9-Round Magazines. With the surplus version almost impossible to find, we made our own version using an original, surplus magazine as the model. Carefully evaluated and approved at each stage of development, these magazines meet the high standard of quality customers have come to expect from CCSA. There is no longer a limit to the number of magazines per order.

    To order if paying with a USPS money order, certified check, or personal/company check , please send an email with your name, shipping address and the quantity desired to [email protected] so we can match your payment with your order.

    Hi, I'm new here. I carry a Sig P239 and my wife carries a Ruger LCP. We have many pistols, rifles and shotguns and I reload my own ammo.

    I tested both using 3 gallon cooking oil jugs (square vinyl-plastic containers like milk jug material 12" diameter filled with gelatin) and an old army wool blanket three layers thick and they both made it into the second container with full expansion and about 95% weight retention. A total of 14" penetration. Standard .380ACP HP penetrated only into the first jug and stopped at 12", just dimpling the exit layer of the jug and 40-50% expansion and 98% weight retention.

    9mm XTP (9x19) penetrated to 16-17", same expansion characteristics.

    Testing using .40S&W XTP loads were consistently at 22" penetration, full expansion and again 95% weight retention.

    All tests had pieces of the wool blanket in the first jug.

    All were shot from a distance of 7 yards.
    Thanks very much for your informative response and advisory, JPKirkpatrick.
    Hornady XTP report very impressive, will establish that they cycle well regarding chambering and ejection. Expect good results based on the reputation of the Bersa genre.

    Best regards to you and yours,

Both the Glaser and the Mag-safe work well in my guns and the accuracy out to 75ft is excellent. The Glaser rounds are defeated by glass but you solve that by a double tap. The Mag-safe is what I carry in a .380
    Thank you, jimmyjohn. The high tech improvements on ammo were not available in my younger days when I was more experienced in this rapidly evolving subject. Wife and I were gifted a year free pass to a nearby indoor range and your advised ammo is now on our list. Of course, as you specify, we will certainly determine the compatibility of the subjected ammunition to see how well it chambers and ejects rounds, and of course, accuracy also.

    Best regards to you and yours,

    .380 ammo

    Although I've never tried Hornaday XTR in .380 ACP I'm glad to hear of its excellent test results and can't wait to try some myself. I've used (Winchester ?) .380 Silvertips with border-line satisfactory results which is why I use +P ammo in my Detective Special (2 1/2" bbl.) as my concealed carry weapon. It gives as fine a mushrooming into a large, wet phone book as you could ask for.
