    The guns that I have sold over the years are few in number, and all had something that made them totally unloved by me. Like the absolutely sweet Brazilian made .410 sxs, nice wood, awesome hand checkering. But the left barrel shot 2 feet high...

    Three 44's ordered some Asea today. We'll be testing this together my wife and I. My only criticism was that browsing through the site reminded me rather strongly of a multi level marketing or Pyramid scheme. But the proof will be in the...

    Like everyone else, some you meet will be good, some will be bad. Has nothing to do with respect or anything else. As I respect them, and the law. That being said some are looking for a way to bust you. Some look to see if you are legal and...

    Well I had been wishing I had bought a .20 mold from sharpshooter back when they made them. So I just pulled the trigger on a .20 mold from Marty. Me I don't mind clipping sprue's. If you use the right set of nippers at the right location you...

    I spent the worst of the winter in New Orleans. Down there they hunt feral pigs in airboats. Now that appealed to me. The 650-750$ per day price tag set me back a bit. Half of that and I'd of jumped. A no walking B Comfy chair C Room for...

    My wife has been on Codine 3 for 14 years. She got off twice. First one was a real corker. After some 3 months clean she came to me, broke down. "I don't want to live like this!" Ok, so I encouraged her to go to a PA that has long history with...

    Dunno about .327 but my .32sw longs shoot great out of my Ruger NM SS. Could not ask for any better. And with 90 gr cast over 2 grains of Red Dot they truly are a pleasure to shoot. Easy on hands/wrists and ears.

    Another Red Dot user here. In fact I have at least twice as much Red Dot stashed as all my other powders combined. It just plain works.

    Personally I much prefer to load my own with a 90 gr cast boolit and 2 grains of Red Dot. Shoots to the sights, no recoil, no muzzle blast, great accuracy. No complaints here.

    5 years ago I started saving all my bottled water and pop bottles. Typically once a year we gather what we have gathered, each bottle gets rinsed, bleached, rinsed again and filled with city water. Now I have opened those older bottles,...

    I reload for my .410 with tools I made myself. A dowel that fits inside the .410 shell fairly close. Another dowel with a finishing nail epoxied into the end and sanded till it would go through the flash hole easily. A short piece of 2x2 with a...

    I'd shoot those, and for the record I agree with Bazoo. I would be cautious if you clean those. Plastic gloves, dust mask.

    Winger Ed Post #3 nailed it IMO. Some people just have a hard time wrapping their head around certain truths. Like the fact that the 1911 designed by Mr Browning was designed to shoot through horse AND rider (with one shot) bringing both down....

    I'll third the Red Dot load. I'm filling mine with 3 grains under a 158 gr round nose. Next batch will play with 125 gr. I like to keep the recoil and muzzle blast down. Red Dot is great for that IMO.

    Handloader109 nailed it. There are very few jobs to be had in farming communities. Saw a sugar beet planter a few weeks back that I swear was 24 rows. Looked bigger than the harrow dad used in the 70's. We are almost to the tipping point...
