Video Demonstrates Lock-N-Load Press Conversion Kit

Lock N load Conversion Kit Die bushing twist lock Hornady

Would you like to swap dies in and out of a reloading press in just seconds, with a quick twist of the wrist? Hornady’s Lock ‘N Load twist-lock hardware makes that possible. This time-saving system uses “die bushings” that screw on to your dies. Don’t have Hornady press? No problem — the Lock-N-Load system can be used with non-Hornady presses via the Lock-N-Load Conversion Kit. This includes three die bushings and one press conversion insert. The adapter will work with RCBS RockChuckers and any other reloading press using a 1-1/4-12 thread. The Lock-N-Load Conversion Kit costs just $14.59 at Midsouth Shooters Supply. Watch this video to see how it works.

LaserLyte Allows You to Train with Pistol at Home

.22 LR 22LR Laser Trainer

Is it a hassle to drive to a range for training sessions with your .22 LR rimfire pistol? Well here’s a cool system that lets you practice your pistol marksmanship without ammo. You can transform that rimfire handgun into a high-tech laser pistol, thanks to a smart gadget from LaserLyte. The .22 Caliber Laser Trainer works with nearly all .22 LR pistols (but not revolvers) with a striker or conventional firing pin. The battery-powered device emits a laser beam when you pull the trigger. This is sound-activated so there is no firing pin contact. Snap caps are recommended. SEE VIDEO:

Watch LaserLyte .22 LR Trainer in Action

We have to admit we liked the idea of this device so much, we ordered one from Amazon.com. The $86 retail price seems a little steep, but think of all the money you can save on .22 LR ammo. We just wish there was a version for .22 LR revolvers as well.

.22 LR 22LR Laser Trainer

Word to the Wise — Don’t Annoy the Neighbors: While you can safely use this pistol (in LASER MODE without ammo) in your backyard we recommend that you be discrete. In urban areas people WILL freak out if they see a “man with a gun”. Your silent, laser practice session may be interrupted by the men in black with drawn guns, and things could go very badly. Accordingly, we recommend that urban gun-owners practice indoors when laser-training at home.


.22 LR 22LR Laser TrainerWARNING: Before you use the LaserLyte .22 Caliber Trainer, check and double-check to ensure your pistol is UNLOADED!! That means NO ROUND IN THE CHAMBER! Pulling the trigger with the training device in the barrel (and a loaded round) could cause serious injury or death to yourself or someone downrange. As with any firearm, always make sure to follow all basic firearm safety rules! Additionally, never point the laser beam at another person — as the laser can cause eye injury.
