    I lost a tire on the way. Now that I have new tires, they should make it in the mail tomorrow.

    I know the Redhawk's a very strong gun, and intentionally so, but if you use SAAMI spec reloads or factories, I'd expect the Super B to last just as long as the Rhk. Just my humble observation, based on several SB's having digested many thousands...

    It seems some of us are opining on the basis of the "average Joe" shooter, some on themselves, and some on expert handlings the guns. This is an apples and oranges situation. However, if one considers that it's the MAN who's the weapon and the...

    FWIW, it might be really nice to make up a .22 Hornet or K Hornet. You could load it down for small game to .22 LR levels, or up to its full potential with cast for bigger stuff, and even use those funny looking "red" bullets to get 3000 fps with...

    Most of the younger folks won't even recognize the name, unless they're dyed in the wool "gun guys" with a bit of a flair for and interest in the history of our sport. For those who don't know the name, Lee was the primary original mover and shaker...

    I suspect we're the victims of our forebears' successes. Most folks today, and it's NOT just the younger crowd, seem to have the "eat, drink and be merry, for nothing bad's gonna' happen" attitude. So many, many today think we're always going to...

    Blackwater replied to a thread Grits! in Cookin' Recipe's
    Wow! I actually tried a small amount once with sugar, just to see what it was like because I couldn't imagine it. I couldn't eat it, but then again, I went into it expecting to taste "grits," and the taste was SO far removed from what I was used...

    So many people are beating cancer today! Not all, surely, but so many, and the proportions are growing in favor of beating is. If one HAD to have cancer, there's never in history been a better time TO have it than now. And research holds great...

    I like that phrase of how Peter was "going for broke." Indeed, Peter was probably THE most passionate of all the apostles. I have a sense that's a strong portion of the reason Christ made him "chief" among them? Passionate men, like Peter, David,...

    Thank YOU for being such an inspiration and giving us so much to "munch on" during our days! It's the least we can do to return a little of what you have given to us!

    My church is sponsoring a young lady missionary in London now, and she has reported how very "cold" most people she meets are there. She is pretty young and not very well experienced, so there's some reason to question her evaluations, but Andrew,...

    Thanks, RL. What a great thought for today! And it's all so very, very true! I look back in my own live, and have to laugh an uneasy laugh at how dumb I've been, and how inexcusably dull on so many occasions. And yet, just as ol' Teddy said, if...

    Blackwater replied to a thread Best version ever? in Our Chapel
    I suspect that's all our stories. We're really all a lot more alike than we are different, even if we DO try to let our differences separate us far too often. By Grace are we ALL saved. There IS no other way. And all we have to do is simply be...

    Thanks, Jim. Home is where we feel most comfortable and placid. That's good when we're healing and trying to gather our strength back again. God be with her and heal her fully and completely.

    Thanks, RL. What a great lesson. Many in the Church(s) are quick to condemn others, but Christ also had that parable about those who complain about a mote in their eyes, when the speaker has a log in their own eyes! Our job, other than bringing...

    In all honesty, I'm not really sure. I've started out to read it though a number of times, but always got rather disappointed. Mostly, I've just read the parts that interested me and that I could relate to, and that I was seeking deeper...
