    If a set price had been placed on the item the first one to I'll take it should have gotten it . If the seller took a higher offer and refused to sell to the first I'll take it then that is WRONG , very WRONG .

    I'm afraid I don't 'get it' ! I have auctioned off quite a few things here and to the best of my knowledge did not cause a problem . Generally auction an item because it will set it's own price according to want or demand , what is wrong with that ?...

    The NOE 135, 358 135 RF RG2, is a great mold that you can get hollow point pins with and runs $133 for the 4 cavity and $103 for a two cavity. I shoot this in my 9 and 357 but I don't hunt with it so can't comment on its suitability for that purpose.

    I'm really starting to get interested in the .17's but think I'll probably go with a 17 Hornet, will definitely have to save up cause there aren't many platforms for it. Never had a CZ but that's the direction I'm leaning.

    You would need a fair amount of panel wattage to run refrigerator or freezer, I'm thinking around 1200 watts plus, and a serious battery bank, and an inverter and.... Get mono-crystalline panels. Do some due diligence as there is much to learn.

    Don't forget "quid", or is that "squid" Also, in England, you use a "rubber" to erase a mistake. In the U.S. you use one of those to prevent a mistake. You know what they say, "two Countries separated by a common language."

    Always good to have spares. One of the sadder things I can think of is, picking up a cigar box off a shelf and finding that it's empty. Or, if your favorite vendor is worth his salt, he'll take back the extra spring sets for a minimal restocking...
