    The numbers might as well be totally made up. If I have learned anything from this mess, it's that the experts are doing little more than throwing guesses at us. First we were told no masks should be worn! We were told this repeatedly. Now...

    It's funny, when I was in the Air Force we had as much paid time off as we needed when it came to illnesses. But in order to get the sick leave, we had to be seen by a doctor. Even with a bad cold or flu, no doctor would give more than 48 hours...

    If the numbers are not correct, how are they useful? I would think they each country that makes a report has an agenda behind the way they present the numbers, the US included.

    Apart from this whole Covid-19 thing, how many people have ever stayed home from school or work for 7-10 days to recover from a cold or flu? Not a whole lot. Is this the direction you think things should head? Are we all expected to don masks...

    Thanks for the report. I have an old Winny 94 I need to wring out and have been dreading doing it with the factory sights. I will look into getting Dr. Pearson's rail sight. If seems an elegant solution and not very expensive. Torn between a...

    They were smart but had no way of knowing about health care or is ramifications. They did not address automobiles or airplanes either.

    If money is tight, do not overlook the possibility of a steel carport. My buddy is doing that. I think he said a 20x24 was $1700 installed. He put down the pad and he will be siding it once it is up. The crew will have it erected in a day or...

    The gun has remarkably good reviews and I have been tempted more than once to get once. Then reality sets in. If if could take Glock magazines...maybe. But it does not offer much in terms of practicality. For a SHTF or home defense gun if...

    I plan to purchase mold for a Master Caster. It will be likely be a 158 gr SWC, but I may go with the 170 gr RNFP. I want a general purpose load for target shooting, and coyotes. I expect a No Lube Groove bullet will cause less hang-up in the...

    I had it happen with .38 target loads that had been stored for 25 years. (2.7 gr of Bullseye). I doubt it would have been a problem with a rifle case with a lot more powder but I do not know for sure. Never had one on loads less than 5 years...

    It is a very nice build...but $300 more than buying a S&W 686 Performance Center. If “the look” is worth it, that is great! Is there any other reason to do the conversion? Not trying to be a Debbie Downer....just wondering what the...
