Some people have to buy them and could use a few bucks to help them out. Nothing wrong with asking. Lord knows people have told me I should try to raise funds for the KRISS, but there are people like Erin who need a pistol vs. idiots like me who simply want another because there’s a spare inch in the safe where it might fit should I try cramming it in. If you’ve got a buck or two, help a girl get herself a carry pistol, will ya?

Or more like “case mouths that almost come to a point” as the KRISS really likes to mangle the brass The conversation over at krisstalk.com  leads me to believe that the ammo was either too hot or not hot enough and that the brass may have been hitting the barrier a bit briskly. Doesn’t look like anything the resizing die wouldn’t be able to clear up, mind you, just curious to know what is causing it. Kriss recommends specific ammo which wasn’t available to me at the time so it could...

It’s better than having to talk amongst ourselves about where to find ANY ammo from a black market dealer. But as I said over at When The Balloon Goes Up, the argument truly is academic.
