    mold maker replied to a thread Water heater died.... in Our Town
    When me and Mama lived alone a heater would last 12 years. Then we took in two teen granddaughters the heaters dropped to 5 years. A tankless gas unit gives endless hot water at half the price and has lasted 5 years so far. What a blessing to...

    I load for everything I own (except 22), and a few I no longer have or are for family. I have dies for some I intended to own, but never obtained.

    mold maker replied to a thread Bullets in a fire in Our Town
    It's the difference of being hit with a 1# anvil or a 1# pillow. One can kill ya and the other get your attention. In a cook-off, the lighter weight piece is the one propelled. The density difference between a boolit and an empty case is huge,...

    mold maker replied to a thread Digging out in Our Town
    My parents also survived the depression by being thrifty. Nothing that could have a later use or repurpose was wasted. I am left with their collection and the trait that I inherited from them. While right at the moment we are in a much better...

    There are lots of common things that didn't exist here a few centuries ago, including white men, politicians and there are also many things now missing that were once common. It's not evolution, just that not everything follows modern mans rules....

    Typical. Lawyers and bean counters found profit and earned their pay at your expense. Keep after them and document who and when you spoke. No guarantee but only the squealing wheel will get greased. I've had a similer problem with WalMart...

    Applying that kind of heat directly to lead is a guaranteed way to send lead oxides and vaporized lead into the air we breathe. While it's fast and it works, it's not recomended. As casters we want too live long ehough to shoot the lead we melt.

    Typical bean counter screwup. It worked out for pure profit on paper, and in a bean counters head that's all that counts.

    Reloading needs only a trip downstairs. The range requires loading the car and a trip that leaves Granny by her self. At our age, the buddy system is safety for both of us, so I have an increasing supply of loaded ammo.
