    abunaitoo started a thread Snow???? in Our Town
    Has it started to snow in your parts???? Only time I've seen snow, is on trips to the lower 48. It's not even cold here. It is raining more during the days, not so much at night. If it were ever to snow here, people wouldn't know what to do....

    Gout still bothering me, but I got the lights up. I checked them, and got all the lights to work. Of course once I get them up, one color didn't work. Not going to take them all down just to fix it. Not much of a xmas guy anyway.

    A long time ago, I went on a fishing trip to Canada. Bald Eagles all over the place. When it was slow, we'd feed them from the boat. Wave a bait fish in the air, to get their attention. They would fly towards you, when they were close enough,...

    I was having problems with extraction. Sometimes wouldn't hook the rim. It's fine now. Didn't full length size, just kind of neck size. When I did try to full size, there was a bulge where the boolet was. The Lee die sized the neck to much...

    The Largo is an odd ball. 9mm Steyr too. So far it's been an interesting journey. Just like the Chassepot and Vetterli.

    I have the startline brass. It was to short. Got some 9mm mag from a member here. Fitted to the chamber and it works great. I tried full length sizing with my Lee 9mm die, but it sizes the neck down a little to much.

    Your lucky to be able to get one. It will be a cold day in Hell before we ever do. I would renew it just to have the card. That way there will be no question you can carry.

    I have a TIG. Still learning how to weld with it. I was thinking of drilling a through hole under each leg, and weld it from the back. Would be a tiny bit shorter, but I don't think it's going to be a problem. I'll have to check to see what's...

    Almost the same case, but loaded way different. Largo=23.11mm length. 9x23=22.86mm The Largo is a weaker round. Largo= 127 gr (8 g)......1,167 ft/s......384 ft⋅lbf 9x23= 124 gr (8 g) .....1,460 ft/s......587 ft⋅lbf It's what I've found anyway.
