    This is how it is in Europe. And why Europeans donít tip when they come here. Thereís a flip side to this. I think itís great that I donít have to tip because theyíre getting paid properly. But it lead to increased time to eat. We averaged two...

    This is known as ďthe dipĒ and is dangerous when combined w/ lead. It creates lead acetate. Itís what some people use to clean sealed silencers. Disposal of the solution requires taking it to a hazardous waste collection facility. Simply put...

    Look at this way, most reloading equipment spends almost all its life sitting idle. And theyíre all built to make ammo. I have a friend who owns three 1050s w/ autodrives. Each one is set up for one particular load. He doesnít know when the last...

    The notion of dirty loads is perplexing to me as well and Iím close to forty years younger than you. My hands and firearms are dirty after shooting factory loads. And yes, some of them smoke even w/ jacketed bullets. The smoke is a lot less but...

    I wouldnít worry to much. Tip jars will be a thing of the past at fast food chains just like people that work there. Automation WILL replace them in my lifetime. The CEOs have stayed thatís what they want and have begun investing in the R&D. ...

    I just ignore the tip jars. If they arenít providing a service I donít tip. And even when they do provide a service I tip accordingly. They start out at 20% and work up and down from there. Going up is extremely rare these days as I find myself...

    Never, I clean any buildup as it happens. I had tinning on one mold because I wasnít proactive in removing it. So any specks get cleaned off as I go. I donít ever want to have to remove tinned lead from a brass mold ever again.

    Employees walking the guns out of the store is policy at a lot of places. Dickís and Cabelas do the same thing. Well the Cabelas by me used to. Now if itís in a box they tape it up and you can walk out w/ it. If itís a used gun w/ no box they...

    I can tell you this is what my Mother is in the process of doing. She had botched surgery years ago and is in chronic pain. Sheís tapered down her pills as much as she can physically handle. Technically sheís not addicted to them. She doesnít...

    I agree on both accounts. I made one batch of 45/45/10. Was an interesting experience but I have no desire to do it again. Thankfully I found White Label early on. Buying their products has lead to results on target and more time to do other...

    Youíre still going to have some smoke w/ a lubesizer. How much is dependent on what lube you use. The best you can do is help reduce the smoke as much as possible. But eliminating it completely wonít happen w/ lubes.

    I own the Single Seven in all three barrel lengths and the SP101. I hate the SP101 as it has the worse trigger pull out of all of my handguns. Ruger also did a poor job finishing it. So between the two itís not even a decision. Buy the Single...
