    Just noticed that the older threads are gone and may have been archived or deleted altogether. The oldest posting goes back only up to a year ago July 7, 2004.

    When I first joined this forum, there was a main thread(can't remember what it was called anymore) which was more dynamic and where posters can chit-chat and post questions that won't entail a separate thread. As there is currently no main clubhouse thread, the funshoots and matches thread has served this purpose but this detracts from the purpose of that thread which is to coordinate upcoming matches and post results, pictures and experiences. One other advantage of a main thread is that it would lessen thread hijacks(which I admit I'm guilty of at times :)) that results when there is no thread to engage in light banter.

    If I may, (with deference to the BOG founders who can voice out their objections) I would like to reactivate the main clubhouse thread. I'm not familiar with server restrictions but if really needed, like the Funshoots and Matches thread we could limit the threads to say 30 pages and anyone can start the next one. :)

    Forum rules are, as always, in effect and everyone is asked to be nice to one another like civilized and educated people. All BOGs are also enjoined to exercise self-moderation and remind others to behave. Occassional trolls should be dealt with by simply ignoring them and not thru confrontation. In extreme cases, just let the moderators deal with the problem. :)

    The Funshoots and Matches thread restarts every 10 pages and the months do overlap if it still hasn't reached that number of pages. The matches for a particular month are sometimes very few and would result in a fast turnaround but your suggestion would indeed put that thread in a better perspective. Maybe Doc EC,McO and the others have their own thoughts on this :)

    sayang nabura yung old threads when the GT servers crashed last year. All our old pictures were lost, too.

    let's just keep this main thread alive. let's see how long it will last compared to the original.

    Just a quick question: Does StrongHand in Quezon City use teflon heads for reloads?

    I'm asking because they have a branch here in our province, but the branch only has lead and copper coated heads, so if StrongHand QC uses teflon, I'm going to write them a letter and request that they get some of those heads here in Pangasinan for us poor Glock owners who have a hard time cleaning out our barrels with polygonal rifling.

    Thanks for the info, Doc EC and gun dog. Truth is, glck17 referred me to a gun store in Dagupan that uses good teflon heads; TruWeight din ata source nya. Kaso, since I'm about 40 minutes from Dagupan, I was hoping StrongHand, which is in my city, would also be using teflon heads. Oh well, I guess I'll have to stick with Dagupan --a 40-minute drive to the next city beats a 4-hour drive to QC anytime :)

    I use lito's teflon heads for my .45 ACP G30 reloads at True Power, no problems with them from a shooting standpoint, one thing you have to watch out for is that the bullet head's weights are heavier than advertised(due to the thick teflon, or is it epoxy? paint) so adjust your powder loads accordingly. The 230 gr heads I use always come between 235 to 237 gr during chrono. :)
