    During Fathers Day lunch, I made plans to take two of my Grand Daughters to shoot the rifles I bought them shortly after their birth. After gathering all the equipment and the girls, we drove to the only local range. Excitement ruled the day...

    mold maker replied to a thread Firearms magazines in Our Town

    mold maker replied to a thread Dead rabbit in Our Town
    I once killed a rabbit with one 7 1/2 shot through the top of the ear. It must have scared him to death or caused a heart attack. At the time my kids wouldn't eat wild game, but he made the best chicken pie they ever ate.

    Are there really folks who don't have the familiar three holes somewhere in the house?

    The only way to totally avoid the annoying calls is to get rid of the phone. Remember when there were no bells ringing to disturb your dinner/peace. Who needs the aggravation?

    I am sure you could get an online subscription and get this issue. There is a link to last months issue also so this issue would be current or last month.

    That's the right way to do it. Also notice the notch on the front of the cock. If you guns don't have that, get out a file or Dremel and do it. It directs fragments away from the eyes, and helps split the fired cap for easier removal.

    I got the IRS spoof today. I don't get as many since I started explaining that Mr & Mrs ----- are both in a rest home and I'm just the care taker.

    Yep, they do that. People around here open the hoods of the vehicle when camped in the back country. The pack rats prefer enclosed spaces

    I watched as a squirrel eat the posts off a dead battery. I've had to rewire an auto with a nest full of nut hulls under the hood. My neighbor had a squirrel nest in the attic. He said they played football at night over his bedroom. Squirrels...

    Have you loaded XHP cases before? I have reloaded a lot of HXP 30-06 and one thing I like about them is that you don’t need to swage the primer pockets at all. The crimp they use is three stake marks, not a fully crimped primer like LC. The new...

    A nibbler will open the sides or back allowing you to empty it. The name "SAFE" is a joke. Their only made to keep little fingers and eyes from danger.

    I didn't find much, if any difference in the roughened balls. Both the smoothbores I have at the time shoot like rifles, so what would I do with a bit more group tightener? If I am on target, they are going to hit.

    It's the same folks that dump their ash tray in the parking lot or toss their fast food trash out the window. Their parents failed them.

    Every mineral we deal with was always a part of the earth. Man may move and concentrate or dilute it, but man never originated any thing but ideas. The earth has ways of redistributing our mistakes just as it has for eons. In my opinion, the well...
