    22LR steel spinners from PA..

    Guess they are not really approved for 22LR..It was only 10$, but wasn't expecting it to fail the first shot.

    First shot 50m, with CCI mini mags. Twisted and bent. Guess I keep them for airgun use only.

    Princess Auto is so hit-and-miss.
    The best air ratchet I ever owned came from them, still regret selling it for the Snap-On because it was shinier and fancier.
    I'm still using a PA 3/8" drill that I got from them almost 30 years ago, still going strong.
    But, bought a set of prybars from them and bent the small one into a U first try, then snapped the tip off the big one first try.
    Tempering was all over the place, I guess.

    Are there any Princess Autos out there?
    If you take it back they'll make it right, but if you have to ship it it wouldn't be worth it.

    There is one in the city. But it wouldn't be worth the trip, for the 10$ I paid. I'll straighten it out, and throw it in the backyard for airguns.

    Guess I'll look around for one that is stronger.

    I loved going into the Princess street one, you almost felt like you should be wearing a London Fog, a fedora, and look both ways to check that the cost was clear before you went in

    PA is still my Happy Place.
