How do I become one? Poked around a bit but can't find any information. I post very rarely but visit the site daily. I have learned more about cast boolits and shooting in general than I would have thought possible. If I can help financially I would be proud to do so.

Borderman, Go to the test forum, click on gunloadsmaster's handle and it should get you to a place to contact him. Where in Southern Indiana? My mother's family is from Linton, Greene County. Linton is not only geographically in Southern Indiana, but it is culturally Southern.

Many thanks NVcurmudgeon. I am right next door in Bloomington, Monroe county, Democrat capital of the state. I am a conservative in the midst of liberals. Shooting has gotten a lot tougher here, the Sycamore Valley gun club was about a mile from my house. Unfortunately the club officers depended on Indiana University to supply the land in a reasonably remote valley at the base of a golf course and cross-country field. A new president came along and that was the end. It has been relocated to another adjacent county (Owen) north of both Greene and Monroe, but it's not the same.

Anyone who sends in donations to help the site I like to give a little something special. You get the title of Generous Donator, but you will have the ability to change your title to whatever you want, along with 10MB of attachment storage for pictures and can have 150 Private Messages. Just a little something to say thanks.

Borderman, My Grandfather, Joe Turner, founded the Linton Daily Citizen newspaper about 1900. Family legend is that he was the only prominent Democrat in a Republican state. Of course, that was in the olden days when Democrats were respectable! My mother always claimed that the "parts of Indiana" exception to Daylight Saving time, still going strong, was because of my Grandfather's efforts. Grandaddy had been Mayor, and in 1933 when the banks closed, one of them re-opened as Citizen's National bank, Joe E. Turner, President. I suspect an FDR connection.
