    Best provide some toys for those new sharp teeth. If not they'll find something on their own and it might be costly. My Son didn't listen to that advice and came home to find the corners chewed off the bathroom cabinets.

    The 45 Colt was around long before any type of standards. The 45 Colt predates SAAMI by 50 years. Most of the Colt issues are do to this. In equal toleranced chambers/guns they are indistinguishable.

    At times the edit feature has strange quirks. Not able to go back and correct spelling or add to the middle of the text. A workaround is to use paragraph key. Add text or correct, then backspace the paragraph movement.

    Like OS OK, I store my powder in an old refrigerator from the 60s. It has a magnetic seal that offers little resistance to opening, and keeps temps even. Since there is no air circulation a couple moisture packs keep that stable also.
