    WRideout replied to a thread Veterans Day tomorrow in Our Town
    I am feeling some survivor's remorse today. I did serve my twenty years, three as an active duty medic, 91B, and the remainder in the Army Reserve and National Guard. On active duty, I was at Ft. Lewis Washington in 1972 when the 9th Infantry...

    RCMaverick, I am also a veteran, and have put in my twenty years, albeit most of that in the reserve component. In my experience, military people have a rather unique set of circumstances. For those who have been in combat, holding back one's...

    I used a hollow point version years ago, and currently use the plain nose. It is exceptionally accurate when loaded down for target use, and would function quite well for defensive use at full velocity. Wayne

    I made a small screen from scrap wood and a piece of hardware cloth. I use it to mine the berm at my club's pistol range. I tried the same thing at the rifle range, but didn't have much luck. They bury deeper, and are shot at a lot less. ...

    I once spent an afternoon at the range with a Knox County TN sheriff's deputy who let me shoot his Taurus 92. It seemed about equal to the issue Berettas I had in the Army National Guard. Still miss the Gummint 1911's though. Wayne

    It's just my experience with smelting wheelweight, but I found that rancid vegetable oil really makes the lead let go of any other metal in the mix. And also, it smells like french fries while you are working. Wayne
