    My wife's son was on the SWAT team here a few years ago before he moved to Nashville. He still stays on guard when visiting and is always watching.

    Beagle333 replied to a thread Starline 30-30 in Leverguns
    I've been asking them for years as well. I watched as new offering after new offering made the lineup, and a lot of them were of calibers that I had never even heard of. I can't believe it took this long before such a popular cartridge made the...

    The PO made her throw the pills down the storm drain. I hope the feral grey cat that lives there eats them.... Weed got scattered by the wind. The policeman had a smile on his face when he asked her to ruffle her clothes to make sure there was...

    Just get rid of all that undersized 9mm brass, problem solved. Unless you have a woman in the house, being the 9mm is a ladies caliber, you will need to keep some around. ;-)

    Beagle333 replied to a thread Apple season! in Cookin' Recipe's
    Honeycrisp is my favorite apple. They don't grow them here, so price is always at a premium. Anytime I see them for less than $1.99/lb, I stock up. Publix often carries them at $4.99/lb, but I just have trouble making myself pay about 4 bucks for...

    Just fill the .40 cal cases with lead and use them as boolits for a .44 mag. Makes one heck of a wadcutter if loaded base forward, and a pretty potent boolit if loaded case down. Close to pure lead is best.:Bright idea:

    Tom W. replied to a thread What is it in Lead and Lead Alloys
    The Babbit that I used to cast was almost that composition, but no lead at all. When I used it straight it made some beautiful but extremely hard boolits, so I made ingots of it to add to my COWW.

    22 gr. of 2400 have always given me sticky extraction, or at least somewhat difficult extraction in all of the Rugers that I've fired them from, both SA and DA. 21 gr. does well. I dunno what difference one grain makes, but that has been my...

    I have shared that same sentiment for years. Most LEOs view their guns as another piece of equipment on their duty belt. I include shotgun and rifle in that too. Many are sub par performers when it comes to firearms handling and qualifications.

    RCBS 32-098 followed by a brass (loose) copy of Lyman's 3118. The Lyman copy does really well in my Hand Ejectors - they prefer a heavier bullet to the 98gr. RCBS. I also like the aforementioned Lee TL SWC.
