    Thin Man replied to a thread Texas Drivers in Our Town
    Texas must have learned something from the Twin Cities (Minneapolis - St. Paul). The interstates up there are certified combat zones. Every time I passed by a lane for driver to enter the interstate I had to hold a foot over the brake pedal. All...

    Thin Man replied to a thread Coffee in Our Town
    Back when I was still working a day job my routine was to stumble into the workplace and mumble "Just get me some coffee and nobody will get hurt." The guys believed it for a while, later they dismissed it as just my babbling in some foreign...

    A few years ago a friend asked me to regulate the sights and find a reasonably accurate load for his Winchester '92 in 32-20. After getting the sighs aligned, I tested his rifle with several (about 5) different cast boolits to find which it liked. ...

    About 6 pounds of .455-220 HBWC Manstopper from a recent Mihec group buy. Sized these .454" and tested them in both a Webley MK VI and a S&W 1917. Got some of the best groups to date with the MK VI and hit right at the sights over 4.5 grains...

    If you have a company that serves the hydraulics industry, they will probably have shelves full of all outside diameters and thickness of o-rings. Beyond that, they probably will be cheaper than most of the routine auto parts and hardware stores,...

    Wanna see complicated? Go over to Midway and ask them if they have any (fill in the blank). You will get 7 pages of similar (or not) responses and never ever learn if they carry what you are trying to find. If they are my last resort for shopping...

    Thin Man replied to a thread Case Lub in Reloading Equipment
    I don't care for the spray lubes as the spray can send lube into locations where it does not belong. I use a lube pad and RCBS lube. After the cases are sized I wipe them down with a t-shirt or towel. This is the one lube that will come off the...

    When I shoot any of my firearms I clean it (them) as soon as it is cooled and time allows. As for those in storage, they were clean when put in storage. They get a yearly wipe-down, but not a complete cleaning. Cleaning is a firearm's reward for...

    There are more ways to share information than just reading the threads and stickies. About a month ago I noticed a poster whose location was close to me. He had only a few posts. His published questions and comments suggested he was very new to...

    Many years ago I was on the road and passed through South Carolina. There were several billboards along the road advertising the "largest gun store in the state". Didn't have the time to stop there on the way toward the coast but did make a stop...

    Thin Man replied to a thread Fast food tipping?? in Our Town
    My first education in tipping came when my mother took me to a Chinese restaurant that fit my image of a speak-easy. The entry door was in a short hallway with no advertising or store name beside it. Apparently all the locals knew where to find...

    Thin Man replied to a thread Sold my Jeep, now what? in Our Town
    I have owned 3 Jeep CJ5's. The first was a 1961 with 4 cylinder. It got the name "gutless wonder". No power or road speed but off road you just could not stop it from going wherever you wanted to go. Next was a 1970 CJ5 that had the V-6 and heavy...

    Thin Man started a thread Odd Rossi 92 SRC in Leverguns
    A few days ago I saw an early production Rossi rifle branded as a 92 SRC. I call it early because it carries the Interarms roll marks. All of the metal is blue, caliber is 45 Colt, and the barrel would be 22" to 24" long, did not get a chance to...

    When seating boolits with a long ogive I have used the hot glue frequently. Start by lightly oiling the nose of a boolit, fill the seating stem with hot glue, press the boolit into the stem and lightly twist these to form the cavity. Remove the...

    I have always considered the opening day of dove season as my "New Year's Day", the first day of legal regulated game hunting. This is the day all our old friends gather to enjoy each other's company, show off our new (or new to us) shotguns, chow...

    Thin Man replied to a thread Firearms magazines in Our Town
    Could it be that your stare's political left leaning is having a spillover effect on the sales of firearms magazines? The "politically correct" crowd must have things their way, and that includes everything the majority of this site's members care...

    I remember the Foxworthy series. He had a lot of really pointed captions. A local store started selling T-shirts with his quotes on them. I spied one that said "You might be a redneck if you have more dishes in the sink than in the cabinets." ...
