    These are the only cartridges I load on the Dillon. I'm in the process of acquiring small primer .45ACP brass so I don't have to change out the priming set-up. Makes my life simpler. I'll keep my Rock Chucker handle for loading large primer...

    We've been getting calls that the caller ID shows as a local number. I answered the first one thinking it was a neighbor. They started the spiel about credit card something or other and I hung up. We are a small town in a small county and I...

    I used to enjoy getting a 5 gallon bucket of WW that weighed approx. 150# & yielded 125-130 lbs of ingots. Two years ago(last time I paid for WW) I was lucky to get 75 lbs of ingots and that required separating COWW from SOWW. I'm sure that around...

    I'm curious if you paid the sticker ($12) price for it. Check this out: https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/SearchResults?sts=t&cm_sp=SearchF-_-home-_-Results&an=John+Taffin&tn=Single+Action+Sixguns&kn=&isbn=

    Well! I'm back for more information. I called Airguns of Arizona and asked about the HW30 and then asked about a scope. They referred me to this: http://www.airgunsofarizona.com/spring-piston/weihrauch-hw30s-.177-urban-pro/ Not bad but I'm not...

    Welcome to the forum. I've already got that rod so I won't add my l*ke to the pile but a great way to introduce yourself.

    Well! I'm back on line after having to disassemble everything so the carpet layers could do their thing. Still can't print. I have no idea how the printer was hooked up since I can't reach the usb port on the computer. Got to buy a longer cable....

    No! It is crystals of some kind of desiccant that soaks up moisture. I don't think it is as effective as silica gel but for $12 for a 16# bucket, I couldn't pass it up. I've had this for 7-8 years and it was on a closeout shelf at a pet supply...

    I'm beginning to think that the lunch times I spent perusing the book sites was not wasted. Practically all the gun books in my library are hardback and I paid a lot less back then than the prices I see now. Hope the son's don't dump them in the...

    I'm wanting to dip my toe into the air gun experience. I've thought about it several times but something in the cartridge area always came up first. I have in mind to start with a spring type air rifle and if I decide that I want to continue,...

    It would seem that the cat litter pails fulfill the requirement of a square container. I've only got one and it is still half full of crystal cat litter that I use for a desiccant. As I posted earlier, the nail/screw containers that I got from a...

    I've been tempted to try Goo Gone but I've got about a gallon of industrial degreaser I got at work before I retired. It gets the labels on just about anything off. The stuff is apparently made from offal from orange processing, at least that is...

    I didn't mean that we don't have wills, living wills, powers of attorney(general & health care). While we are comfortable, our financial situation is not complicated. It could get complicated for our sons if they ignore guidelines for inherited...

    The nice thing about being of modest means is that the things covered in this thread are cheaper for us.

    I used an online will program to write a codicil to our wills. Both sons are aware of what we wanted to do and were in agreement. Our attorney is the one who recommended that we do this since it was so simple. I guess if we had contentious...

    Not sure why Proto and Blackhawk were considered "junk" but I bought my first wrench set in 1965, about 6 months out of college. It was a set of seven Proto metric wrenches so I could do minor maintenance on my '65 Volkswagen. I am still using...

    Sometime in the last year I needed(wanted) a 7/8-14 bolt. Of course there wasn't one to be found at the big box stores so I went to Fastenal. I was prepared to have them order one. The girl managing the store got on her computer and found that...

    I don't buy many wrenches these days. Most of what I have are either Proto or Craftsman bought over 30 years ago. I have never earned my living turning wrenches but still tried to buy quality(not name ie. Snap-On). My biggest error several years...
