    A neighbor used to have a border collie that could barely swim. That goofy dog would paddle furiously with his body almost perfectly upright. He could keep his head out of the water but barely get anywhere and would tire quickly. My current mut...

    Nice looking pistol, from the picture it looks like the frizzen is made of lead!!! I think a new frizzen is the way to go, let us know how it works out.

    Man that's just really sad. Looks like it came back worse than before. I would be raising holy hell for a refund. Than use the cash to buy a 45-70 made by somebody else. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    JonB_in_Glencoe replied to a thread Smokers in Our Town
    30 years ago, I bought a New Braunfels Smoker without the side fire box. It looks exactly like the one below in the photo, but without the side firebox. It's made of pretty thick steel, at least 3/16" thick. I've replaced the fire/coal grates...

    You betcha. I don't remember exactly what my half-o-bucket weighed...it was over 20 lbs. I was given a trade value of 80 per lb. He gets about 60 per lb for lead alloys.

    I've noticed CCI primers to be a tad difficult to insert, when others brands fit perfectly. I generally keep some CCI primers on the shelf, even though I don't regularly use them...when I stumble onto a batch of brass that seemingly have slightly...

    you will get better accuracy with a GC. Now "Better" may or may not be measurable with your application and shooting distance...whatever they are?

    For about the first 6 months of my casting hobby, I dipped the corner of many molds into the melt. The mold never got hot enough, I would be hammering on the sprueplate to break the sprues off, til about the 10th pour or so. At that 6 month mark,...

    You can't go wrong with either S&W or Ruger. "What length barrel should I consider since I walk 3-8 miles per trip ? " I would go with a 4" 29 for carry and a 7.5" SRH for shooting at the range.

    I've never seen nothin like that before. I bet it'd work good in loose sand. I move a lot of firewood with a wheel barrow...a traditional 6 cf is ideal for my use. I have a real old one with a steel wheel that's about 1" wide...it works fine if I...

    1/4" Alum will work real well. For my antique Ideal #1 lubesizer, that only has a clamp-on style mount, I only have enough room for 1/8" metal, I use a scrap piece of copper. that thin copper transfers heat just fine.

    My last batch of 9mm range brass that I bought, then processed, then sorted, I found about 100 (out of a box of 3000), that looked like they were reloaded HOT, and probably more than once. I use a Lee 9mm carbide size die, The few of those HOT ones...

    That is a traditional Colt style ejector found on Government models and older guns with GI style ejection ports. The face of your ejector doesn't look out of the ordinary to me, and as long as it wasn't throwing brass into your face it should be...
