    As a kid in the later 60's or early 70's my dad went to a large 7th Calvary reenactment. Even the cooking was to be authentic as to what would have been served to Calvary members in 1875. Problem was the stew/bread was lost in a auto accident. He...

    To some of us, saying I did it myself is reason enough to try. I've done the 80% lowers, make and shoot my own black powder, found gold where it wasn't supposed to be, cut gemstones, found emeralds, and built winning race cars, all against good...

    Less than an hour ago, I got word that a friend of over 40 years has passed. Last week I got the belated news that another was gone. Age has a way of robbing what we cherish, and asking the question, when will it be me.

    One of the reasons the 45 Colt gets a bad wrap for accuracy is the 45 Colt came out long before standardization of case and chamber specs. The case and the chamber on the 45 Colt don't match up as well as some of the other cases. The chamber is...

    Percussion caps sell for 6 to 10 cents each. 209 primers sell for 2 to 3 1/2 cents each. I would love to find a source of caps for less than 209's. If you have a source please share it.

    What I saw was a 3D printed jig that allowed the 308 brass to be held at the correct length and cut with the HF saw. Each cut piece was ejected by the next piece inserted. There was some kind of a detent pin that registered off the extractor...

    If your $1/lb source is smelting WWs, his supply will run out before you expect it to. Are you willing to keep paying him to sort them for you? The only dependable source is your own inventory stockpilled before they are unobtainable.

    Nothing more satisfying than turning trash into treasure. When cast and successfully fired down range it puts a smile on your face that is recognized by everyone there.

    propane tanks only blowup in the movies. While I have never shot a full 20 pound tank I was given a case of one pounders that started to rust thru. Shot them all. Hitting them with a 220 followed by a tracer thing got more interesting but a...

    Not all aluminum is created equal, but an AR Lower doesn't place heavy demands on its material. Low recoil and its main function is to hold the trigger group in place. There are functioning units made of plastic and fiber, so any metal should work.

    Through the years I have owned a lot of firearms but never a 760. I just knew that they wouldn't shot well and the trigger was more fitting for a shotgun, however, I got a 30/06 in a trade. While the trigger doesn't compare to a good bolt gun it...
