    Thin Man replied to a thread It may be time!!! in Our Town
    Best wishes to your entire family. Your post reminded me of a story I heard many, many years ago. A local doctor had the habit of listening closely to a new father after the doctor had announced the childbirth was complete. If the father first...

    Thin Man replied to a thread Changing minds??? in Our Town
    My sister was a hard core leftist in her views. All firearms should be melted down or otherwise destroyed. She lived in a very quite part of our town until the day came that new neighbors moved in beside her. The first few weeks were OK but then...

    After many years of cleaning the crud ring out of service revolvers I have settled on one solution - chamber brushes. These little beauties are larger diameter than your bore and fit tightly in the chamber. They require a pistol length rod with a...

    This thread reminds me about the first armorer's class I attended. It was for the S&W revolvers (yup, I'm THAT old!). The instructor was Lester Limrick who was the top armorer for the FBI in their Quantico facility. He was at the top of the food...

    Thin Man replied to a thread Ppu brass in Our Town
    I have used it in several calibers and it has always performed well for me. Why not list that brass closer to hunting time. Your luck may change.

    Thin Man replied to a thread Lee TL358-158-2R in Cast Boolits
    I use this mold with WW alloy and have never taken the time to measure an "as cast" boolit. In spite of that, every boolit I pass through the sizing die gets "cleaned off" all the way around the boolit body from the die. That said, my "as cast"...

    Thin Man replied to a thread The Rifleman in Cast Boolits
    That TV series was very popular when I was 6 or 7 years old. I still remember the day I was gifted a new cap rifle styled after the Rifleman rifle. That cap rifle had a small flap of metal (aluminum?) inside the trigger guard. When the flap was...

    You are correct that the statutes can vary from one location to another. About 5 years ago a man came into the shop where I work and asked why the grips on his S&W commercial revolver were longer at the bottom of the grip than the frame. The grips...

    Why is it that 1911's get left behind? A few days ago a friend called asking how to remove heavy rust from a 1911. Here is his story: He has a friend who recently bought a piece of property in the city where we live. An older couple lived...

    I quit loading any 125 grain J-bullet in the .357 Magnum back in the 1970's when one of these loads caused a failure (frame crack south of the barrel's forcing cone) in my S&W Model 19 (blue 6"). I shipped that revolver back to S&W and they...
