I use Dillon XL650 presses and I don't use the powder-check add-on. I didn't get it primarily because of reports that they are not reliable with the worse failure mode being failure to sound when there is no powder in the case. I have no idea how often this occurs, but my low primer warning system has failed to sound a number of times over the years. These are electrical and the two most common failure points are corroded contacts and battery problems. Loading a round without a primer isn’t a major issue, but loading one without powder will lead to a squib. I’m not saying that people should shy away from the Dillon powder-check add-on. That’s just my decision.
Dear Fellow NRA Members:
I have been a political activist for gun-owners and the Second Amendment for 37 years. I am both proud and humbled to have been nominated by the NRA Nominating Committee for re-election to the NRA Board of Directors in 2017. The title "NRA Director" is one that should be worn with dignity and the realization that 150 million American gun-owners are depending on us to carry out our duties with diligence and dedication to preserving the protections of the Second Amendment and all that it means to freedom-loving Americans. It has been an honor to have served on the Board with dedicated board members and I respectfully request your support in my re-election effort.
The term “national reciprocity” refers to a federal law requiring all states to recognize licenses or permits issued by other states to its citizens allowing them to carry self-defense handguns. This is not the law yet, but with the election of Donald Trump as President, the chance of such a bill passing in Congress is greatly improved. If so, it would work just like driving a motor vehicle in a state other than your home state. You still must abide by the other states’ traffic laws and gun-owners would have to abide by the gun laws in the states where their permit or license is recognized.
