Not too tight, they don't need to be super tight. 10 ft-lbs is about what I use after sealing it with RTV Ultra-Black and I follow it up 48 hours later after the RTV has fully set up to around 35 ft-lbs. The worst thing you can do is to overtighten the bolts right after sealing the cover with RTV as that will just squeeze out the RTV so it would likely leak afterwards.

When you have a choice, buy American.

go around all of them and torque to 10 ft/lbs then go back around and torque them all to 35 ft/lbs

Anyone who can legally own a firearm can carry it concealed in Vermont with no permit/license
