    I guess some people just don't appreciate the little 204. I on the other hand will chose mine 99 times out of 100 over my other guns! Do you have any pet loads for yours?

    No pet loads as of yet.I've only put 7 rounds through it since i got it put together. I'm gonna try and use one of my buddies pet loads to start.

    But i'm having a hard time finding primers! But then again aren't we all.

    Do you have any?
