    Agreed. Last time I was in there I was trying to find a couple of the 15 or so boxes of 45ACP reloads that I think are in there. Found some cool stuff while I was looking, tho. ;-)

    Loading room? I have a loading room? When I get some time I'll have to ask Siri where it is. I'm figuring out she's a pretty sharp gal!

    Neither, unless you like hunting down expensive brass. I load and cast for both, have hunted and taken game with both. Both excellent cartridges but there are other cartridges that do the job just as well with less fuss...but in the interests of...

    I bought one to press rivets for knife handles awhile back. As I understand it's a basic tool with dozens of uses.

    I miss my cats...but my aim is improving. ;-) My last few have been "feral conversions" but don't last long with the coyotes and dogs around here. They were all excellent mousers, wish I had one now with winter coming on. I have one that passes...

    Can't imagine not living in Texas but I suspect I could get by in TN. I was born in Oak Ridge, or so I've been told. ;-) I think we're going to have another Amazon fulfillment center nearby and plenty of other growth going on as well. Texas isn't...

    I have not tried the Hornady 174's in mine yet, but I did procure some recently and will try them soon. I have been using the Speer 150 gr. HCSP with pretty good luck. I have gotten them as tight as 1.5" at 100 yds for 5 shots, but the norm is...

    I personally believe that most of it is "snake oil". However, I do believe in keeping clean. That means a shower with some sort of non-perfumed soap when going hunting. If one is out and about for a few days without shower facilities, wash up the...

    Exactly! Their idea of compromise is deciding how much of our rights we should give up.

    I use the Windex formula that contains vinegar and cut it at least 50%. For my purposes works better than full strength.

    I agree to a point. It's amazing how many Democrats are gun owners that disapprove of their party's national anti-gun platform. I don't think rank and file Dems are actually anti-gun, they just make poor choices when choosing their leaders. Their...

    My Dodge with a Cummins is a 1997 1 ton, I bought used in 99. At purchase it had 62k. I bought it cuz I had worn out my older 1987 3/4 ton with a 318 and 4 speed by pulling my mules all over Idaho. That was a vast improvement, trust me. The 3/4 ton...

    I collect old Winchesters so one of them generally gets the nod when I go hunting. If the situation calls for a scoped rifle I'll often opt for a Marlin or maybe a Savage. I really enjoy hunting hogs but I'll settle for a deer now and then.
