Also, in a couple of weeks, I'll get to play with a G42. A friend is becoming quite the Glock collector- he also has a G20 to break in.
Added: I've been reading the Lyman book that came in my kit. It recommends using a hotplate to preheat molds. I had already "re-purposed" a hotplate for doing just that.

Priced at $499 and $699 respectively. At a dealer selling Gen4 G23 FDE for $530. And basic M&P models under $430 new. I realize this is exactly a sample of 2, but I wasn't shopping around very hard. No fingering tonight, either. Looking at the G41 makes me think harder about an M&P45 full of Apex parts. Smith and Wesson, YU NO M&P45 CORE??????

Had to get a DOT physical today to keep the CDL that I don't use but also don't want to lose. Some damned Obamacare thing, I think. I had extra time before work, so I decided to drop it off at the DOT. Brought my CDL and all the paperwork save the little wallet medical card that I put in my glovebox. Of course, they want the stupid little card, not the full form which also has all the info.
So, I take all that stuff back out to my truck, in a 20 mph gusty wind, to get the little card. By the time I get back inside, I can't find my CDL. Retrace my steps, nothing. I pled global warming to the staff, as I now needed a duplicate license, too. By then I had a supervisor helping me. About the second word out of her mouth was:"Oh, you were right, the paperwork you had the first time was sufficient." Grrr. She did get me my duplicate free. So I had that going for me.

Mosins pass the "white glove" test. Mainly, I can load them while wearing heavy leather insulated gloves. Had I used my clips, it would have been even easier. The BLK needed me to switch to my
