    birch, Is the "Rapine Nose Pour--Hollow Base 386185. $75 shipped" the one for the .41 Long Colt? If so, I'll take it. Actually, I noticed that you have listed 2 of them - are they both the same? I'll still take one, but let me know if there...

    Several years ago I was (over)prescribed Hydrocodone for several weeks after a back injury. Insurance company refused to authorize surgery. I had no idea what I was doing; took one so I could get moving in the morning and another to sleep at night....

    TXGunNut replied to a thread Marvel Mystery Oil in Our Town
    Been using MMO for 40 yrs in air tools. Some sit for years in an unheated shed between uses but they always work. I suspect it works as a detergent in engine crankcases; good for maintenance but possibly a bad idea for sludged-up engines. Sludge...

    I buy most of my MTD parts from SEPW. Reasonable prices and freight, great catalogs. I have found that a genuine Cub Cadet deck drive belt will outlast an "equivalent" MTD belt 2 to 1 or better. I bought my Cub Cadet when my MTD mower locked up just...

    Thanks Hatch! Got mine yesterday, and it looks great. Due to my work schedule, I probably won't be able to use it for a couple of weeks, maybe more - but I'm looking forward to it!

    Did so about ten years ago, haven't gotten around to putting up an antenna yet. TV is one of the biggest wastes of time and money known to man. Ditching the satellite dish only solves half the problem, IMHO.

    If you haven't already request a tracking number and go to the FedEx site for details. You may be able to get helpful details from the delivery notes. Be persistent, sometimes it pays off.

    Quite good but easy to overcook. A bigger snake makes better eating because smaller portions will be overcooked before the crust browns. I don't much care for rat snakes but have a little one (less than 3') under the back porch. I had a big...

    About ten years ago I was working for a company that had a car "damaged" by transformer oil. You'd think it was a highly toxic substance from all the haz-mat activity. I guess some towns would send out a haz-mat crew if someone saw me take a whiz...
