    Yea I tithe. The tithe is used for God's work, so my tithe doesn't always go to our church. If some one is needy, someone has a special circumstance, a family with an urgent lack of money, then I give some or all the tithe to help. The tithe will...

    It also works by adding a small strip of copper flashing around the bottom cross pin--not required to go all way around just shape of horse shoe. This shim will take up the wear in the linkage and make ram bottom out.

    Randy C. +1 for the 6x45. Almost no recoil, uses very little powder and is very accurate. With all the AR guys, you can pick up all the brass you would ever need at most ranges. It is simple to load--great caliber.

    Charlie, don't rush your story, but I have been waiting for the part where some hippie chick becomes a "nuisance" to you in all this! These cult gurus have to find a way to get to you, and it seems they would give orders to a female follower to...

    Look at a 6x45 6mm in a 223 or 556 case. With the popularity of the AR you can usually pick up all you would ever need. Case forming is a no brainier, just lube case and run it through a full length forming die, add primer and you are ready to...
