    I think you missed the point a little. The question was "Do you agree with the doctrine of the church that you attend"; not "Do you hate organized religion in general".

    fatelk replied to a thread Federal 22 LR ammo FTF in Rimfire Area
    I helped a friend clean up his old Marlin model 60. He figured he had shot tens of thousands of rounds through it and never once cleaned it, just said it was wore out. I cleaned it good, but then it had a fair amount of misfires and jams; not a...

    fatelk replied to a thread VA question in Our Town
    Thanks, but we're actually in Northwest Oregon, an hour from Portland. I assume they'll have something similar there. She took him to the VA doctor in Portland today; my wife helped her load him into their truck (I was at work). I'll pass on all...

    fatelk replied to a thread VA question in Our Town
    I believe she needs someone to come in and help her with him a few times a week, or he'll have to go to a nursing home. My wife said that she told her that he was permanently disabled from a gunshot wound while serving in Vietnam. I've written...

    fatelk replied to a thread VA question in Our Town
    Thanks everyone. Honestly I don't know the answer to any of the questions, as I know almost nothing about these things. You've given me some good questions to ask though. We don't know them well but it's sure hard to see someone go through what...

    fatelk started a thread VA question in Our Town
    My neighbor is having some troubles and I'm trying to help. I know next to nothing about the VA or what other kind of resources might be available to them. I thought I'd ask here because I know some of you all are pretty knowledge about these...

    I've shot a fair amount of pretty old .22 ammo over the years. I once got a couple .50 cal size ammo cans full of .22 bricks with a carload of reloading stuff from an estate. Several bricks looked to be from the '60s or '70s at the latest. They shot...

    Could very well have been over a year ago. It's crazy how time flies. If I'd have paid attention to your first post I'd have seen the part where you said you "found these at a local gun show about a year ago". :) I remember asking the guy about...

    I have to say, those of you who are ahead of me in years, with the awesome attitudes and good memories, are a real encouragement. On the other end of the spectrum is a grumpy old guy I knew, who used to say that "life is a dirty trick". He said...

    I finally saw 500rnd bricks of .22lr on the shelf yesterday, for $24.97 at Walmart. No limit. First time I've seen that in years at a reasonable price. I still fully expect that, barring unusual circumstances, sooner or later the supply will...

    Tomatoes, forgot about that. I've never been a big tomato eater, but a friend gave us a bag full of big, juicy, ripe tomatoes a couple years ago. They were so good I could eat one like an apple. It's just amazing how you can get used to mediocre,...

    It's no fun when the body goes over the years, but sometimes it goes all at once. Is that any better? Last year a good friend of mine passed away. He was 58 years old and in incredible physical condition, total health nut, fit and strong. He was...

    Who here likes seedless watermelons? I remember eating watermelon growing up, big old 40lb melons full of seeds. One of the good things about summer. Nowadays I can't buy anything but these small round seedless things with no flavor. They seem to...

    There's a certain pride that comes with being young and strong. I think it's one heck of a blow to the ego when you realize those days are behind you. I'm many years behind some of you all, but just in the last year have started having problems...

    I picked up an inexpensive old school 1911 last year. Philippine made "GI" model, I just liked the look and it shoots great for what it is. It looked right, except for the 8 round mag with a bumper base. I understand that the bumper base mags are...

    fatelk replied to a thread old ammo in Vintage Ammo
    I thought the same thing when I first glanced at the photo. The leather loops that the cartridges are in make it look like a really long bullet and a short case. I think I have one 45-70 round that old, maybe a little older, as it's inside primed.

    You know what's funny; I saw those two boxes on a table at a gun show a few months ago. I remember thinking that someone who needed 30-40 brass was going to snap them up. My first thought was that I remember seeing a couple boxes just like that,...
