    fatelk replied to a thread Working at Amazon in Our Town
    I've never worked at Amazon, so my assumptions and speculations are based only on my own experiences. It seems that some companies really go out of their way to attract and retain good people, for one reason or another, and others focus hard on the...

    I'm about sick of my stupid iPhone. Apple does it's best to force you to do what they want. I got never-ending notifications to set up Apple Pay (not interested). I finally figured out how to turn those off, but now I get never-ending notifications...

    I've heard so many stories over the years about problems with Taurus guns that I am leery of them. I also understand that there's no way they could stay in business if everything they sold was junk. So, you take your chances, and it appears that in...

    I passed up a used Taurus revolver at a show a couple months ago and kicked myself. I forget what model, an older .357 mag, 6” ribbed barrel. They wanted $250, but I had gone with the thought in mind that I was not going to buy a gun no matter what....

    It's not really fair to compare it to a Single Six. It's a good revolver for the money, but it's not a Single Six. I ended up buying two of them. The second one I bought at Bi-Mart for $175. I see they raised the price to $199 now. I honestly...

    The range where I shoot has numerous bays and good berms full of lead. As a member I get a key to the gate and am responsible for myself; there are no ROs. If I go on a weekday it's easy to have a bay to myself, but berm mining is not allowed. I can...

    Danger! Dihydrogen oxide is statistically the most dangerous chemical on the planet! More people have been killed throughout the whole of human history by it (and in it) than any other chemical, and it's a proven fact that everyone who comes into...

    I bumped it up a little, and the bullets actually left the barrel, but it doesn't shoot anywhere near point of aim. The primers also tend to back out a little and flatten, jamming it up. The little gun is 128 years old, so I'm hesitant to increase...

    I thought I'd err on the light side working up a light load for this old gun, tried 1.3gr 231 with a Lee 93gr bullet. The first round stuck halfway down the barrel.

    fatelk replied to a thread Gunbroker grump in Our Town
    It’s sat empty that long? My aunt and uncle have done the same thing with their house, only for about 10 years. They want to fix it up before selling because it needs a lot of work. They even had a contractor try to make a deal with them to live...

    Thanks guys. I’ll set them aside. It did seem a shame to toss all that nice matching brass in with all the old mixed stuff.

    I picked up a bunch of .38 Special brass, including a number of boxes of Winchester Western Super Match brass. Is this brass anything special that I should set aside for wadcutters, or should I just mix it in with my regular brass?

    I found another one today. I bought it because it was cheap and looked like an interesting old gun. It's an H&R .32 Long top-break revolver, made in 1891. It's in excellent condition. I think I'll load up some black powder rounds for it, since...
