    Thank you, swheeler! Your explanation is what I have always read and understood. Essentially, that is exactly what many manuals, books and articles have pointed out. As well as many posters here have said much the same thing without realizing...

    CONGRATULATIONS! We'll hit 55 in July. We dated some in HS and some while we were in college(different schools). I had been working my first job out of college and she was teaching in a different state, only about 4 hours away. I used to drive...

    alamogunr replied to a thread 45 win mag? in Cast Boolits
    Is that a gas check in the mouth of those rounds? Since I'm unfamiliar with shotshell loads, do the RCBS dies neck down the .45 Win Mag brass?

    alamogunr replied to a thread Handloader magazines in Our Town
    I didn't start subscribing to Handloader until about 20 years ago. At the same time I went on a quest to acquire all the remaining back issues. I've got them all now. I got several years of the early issues from a collector that had them in...

    Your reply was definitely not rude. John Boy came close as pointed out by DougGuy. I would never try to post loads on line. They never reproduce in a readable format. It is always messed up. As BigAl pointed out, several load manuals are...

    I would suggest that the OP acquire a couple of GOOD load manuals. My favorites are Lyman Cast Bullet Manual and even though it is not focused on cast bullets, the Western Powders manual has good info. The Lyman #1, 2 and 3 all have good...

    I sent it both ways yesterday and got the same message both times. Sent it correctly this morning and it went thru ok. EDIT! I see the problem. In a lower post Outpost 75 left out the "n" and I just copied it the second time I tried to send...

    I don't know how well it would work in an open room but I have good luck using crystal cat litter in my safes. I found a large plastic tub on sale in a pet supply store. Been using it for about 10 years now.

    alamogunr replied to a thread new carry gun today in Our Town
    I have never consider my hands to be "big". I've always had plenty of hand strength up until the last couple of years. This past year has been especially bad for maintaining fitness. I haven't fired the FA Casull or the .475 Linebaugh in over 2...

    alamogunr replied to a thread new carry gun today in Our Town
    Hey! I like the Glock 21. I've had it since 1994. I can't say I've put thousands of rounds thru it but I still like it. It is not a carry gun but I think it is an excellent home defense or truck gun. And, I'm only 6'2" and 195 but I am 78.

    alamogunr replied to a thread new carry gun today in Our Town
    I'm not sure what you are asking. As I posted, I bought 4 of the Shields because of cost after rebate. That decision was reinforced by comments I read after the fact. After shooting my Shield 45, I was convinced further. One thing that...

    alamogunr replied to a thread new carry gun today in Our Town
    It sure is gratifying to read a thread that mostly reinforces my own opinion of S&W Shields. Back when S&W was giving out rebates I bought 4 of them, two 9's and two 45's. Kept one 45, gave one to my older son, gave one 9 to my younger son and the...

    I've got the big set of Brownell's screwdriver inserts and a couple of handles. I don't trust myself with anything else. I admire anyone that can do more. Wish I had started young learning how to repair and modify guns. Way too late now. ...

    That looks like a good deal. I imagine that the Schnabel on the end of the barrel is just like mine: a good handle when cocking.

    I loaded up with 10K-12K rounds when they were hovering around 3 to 3.5 per round. Then the pandemic hit and I still have almost all of it. Right now I'm sitting on mucho powder and primers. Have about 700 rounds of 9mm loaded for the grandsons...

    Almost 3 years ago I got the urge to get into air guns. I bought a HW95 w/scope. This is a heavy powerful gun. I'm just now getting back to shooting it. I've got a fair amount of upper body strength but the HW95 takes a bit of effort to cock. I...

    Tell me about it! I bought 3 back in '95. Gave one to each of my sons and kept one. I got an extra magazine with each one. I think I waited about 6-8 months for them. I don't regret it but I'm not sure the sons really know what they have. One...

    I got a set of 5 starter & 5 seater punches when I assembled my first AR. They have worked fine. I will admit that you can do with less.

    I've got an article somewhere that has a long discussion of what ammo will work with Seecamp. I've still got a couple of boxes of Silvertip. I believe that Speer Gold Dots were mentioned as OK. I take mine out about once a year and fire a couple...

    I didn't start casting until I was in my 50's. I'm 78 now and still living in a cast bullet desert. When I tell people that I cast bullets they look interested at first but soon their eyes glaze over and I can tell they hope I'll shut up soon. ...
