I bought a drill press awhile back and I've been having fun drilling anything that looks drillable. The biggest hassle has been getting the work jigged at the right spot. How I wished the DP had a laser light... Duh, mad scramble for the night stand, where did I stick it, voila! It didn't work too well in the .40 pistols, as it is longer than a regular cartridge, however that makes it just perfect to place in the chuck and point to where the drill bit will go. It made installing a compensator on my vz58 a joy rather than the pain I was afraid it would be.
