    They may have a half a handle on new gun sales but there were more than their estimates before the 4473 was invented. It sounds as if Nancy has had another dream.

    Same goes for anything sold at auction. To some folks, the idea of winning at all cost is more powerful than common sense.

    To a certain group, everything with a barrel is an AR Howitzer in a supersonic speed, firing a cop killer round, fed by a 100 rnd clip. They aren't about to let logic or facts cloud their judgment, or sway their opinions. There is almost no reason...

    Time was when most of the acreage was farmland and farmers carried, to rid their farm of pests. Nowadays the same farm is divided into 200 1/4 acre plots and folks can shake their neighbor's hand while laying in bed. You wouldn't think that kind...

    My Grandad used to tell of farmers killing both on sight. I'm now older than my grandad was, and had never seen a yote till 2015. Now as in the song, "Their everywhere". Seems as if we allowed it to happen without having a care in the world.

    Whatever deposited the stains and crud will likely also remove it. If you use alcohol or MS to dampen the media, as it evaporates it leaves behind whatever it removed from the brass. High strength solvents and cleaners might even deteriorate the...

    You should be able to mark it with your fingernail if dead soft. It will make your wheel weight stash last lots longer.

    If using a steel pot, don't trust the handle to lift or pour. It isn't intended for such weights and what may easily handle cooking weights will fail when leat is involved. Many handles are only held by a spot weld in thin metal.
