    Yeah, making broth or stock from the carcass is something I'm real familiar with. Dad did it, and his son follows suit. Made a chicken pot pie yesterday. Used some of the stock, great taste, fat, bones, little of the dressing in the crevices ...

    gbrown replied to a thread The Next Great Ammo Scare in Our Town
    I have no real answer to your query, but I have to believe that the answer is yes. Military is always trying to reduce weight. Think of a pallet of .223 or .50 cal. Maybe a 100 pallets, what would that do for them? I can see that as being a...

    It's a mindset, not who you are or what you want to be, but what you have, not you. Look at those things. What can you do with it? Think outside the box!
