    I'm on my third all-grain batch. The first was great and the second sucked. With regards to the
    second I can't even fathom where I went wrong, not taking gravity readings is the first problem
    but prob...

    HMmmm. I didn't think about the mash temp being too high. I usually make the assumption that

    For a decent 9mm it looks like most of the good suggestions have been mentioned (M&P 9, Glock
    17, Springfield XD 9). These run new around $500-$600. There are some less expensive guns such

    It really depends on what you want to do. If it's punching paper at a range and cost is the

    I've had a smack pack sitting in the basement for about two months. It hasn't been refrigerater
