    GhostHawk replied to a thread Building a dock in Our Town
    Up here in the north country most all water freezes 3-4 feet deep. Come spring a wind will shove that mass north one day and south the next wrecking anything fixed. Docks almost all come with wheels up here, plus a piece of pipe on each side in a...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Shipping cost in Our Town
    When you live in Paradise, there are some hidden costs. Being that far from the rest of the United States, shipping is I suspect a very real cost for you. Now you could probably live for 1/3 of what it costs you over there here in North...

    If he survives to reach Colorado I would expect it to be the end of him. Fact is some people simple can not manage, can't control it. I know I was one. I do now, I am that rarity that they say does not exist. The alcoholic that can have...

    I have some green beans stashed against a coffee less future. Shelf life is much much longer. I did a couple of small batch's just so I would know what I was getting into. What I liked the best was a wok style pan over a gas stove and...

    I did tithe for years, faithfully. Until I found out that 40% of all that came in went to the parent church. And the national church was using those funds to promote gun control, and were giving money to terrorists. Pastor and I had a few...

    My Cz-52 is guilty of the same thing. Inside pistol range not as bad, but they were still scattered over at least 6 lanes. Outside, in grass, gravel, forget it. You find half your lucky.

    I suspect he is intimidated. And there is a good chance that you scare the living daylights out of him. Your going to have to feel your way as far as the conversation is concerned. I agree with the scale. Good choice and a much needed tool. ...

    Loaded mine with Red Dot. And I have an 8 lb jug of Promo. Which is currently saved for the shotgun reloader. For centerfire I like seeing the dots, costs me a few dollars but not that many. BPI currently has 8 lbs of Promo at 128.60 Red...

    Old friend of mine used to keep 2-3 grayhounds. He lived out on the farm where he could let them run jackrabbits and fox. Nothing better on a cold day than a grayhound to curl up next you and thump his tail while you worked him over nice and...

    Once you accept him, totally, you have to make your will, wants, needs, desires subservient to his. But his yoke is easy and his burden is light. But it is his, not yours. Not unless you make it yours. He is Master, he chooses, we obey or not....

    I made it to Oshkosh once, back in 96. I'll never forget those days. Love old warbirds. I had a friend who was a firefighter at the Colombia Ms airport. He calls me up one morning and says listen to this. And I hear the unmistakeable sound...

    Question, do you realize that for just target shooting you do not have to push the speed? 3 to 5 grains of Red Dot can be just as accurate as 15 - 20 grains of IMR 4227 or other powder, at roughly one quarter the cost. Lower your speed some, but...

    All I know is that the more loads I have worked up for my .444 handi rifle the more I love it. With a good load, and a decent shooter it will do what it needs to do.

    Sitting on about 300 lbs of lead, 30 lbs of Red Dot, and a .50 ammo can full of primers, second one half full. Soon as any one of those is down about a third I buy enough to put it on top. So I never run out, hope I never will. Powder was...

    Have not done glue bullets. Have shot .30 cal buckshot out of 7.62x54r with just primer. Determined that at 20 feet it would go through one side of a cardboard box and not the other side. Which was just fine with me. Till mamma came...

    Claude, you said a mouthful brother. Often times I think when we are scrambling frantically to please him. We need to stop, look at his face, and it will become obvious what he wants us to do. I know sometimes my Casey is a foot from the ball,...

    I have to agree, start with a really good cast bullet manual if you are going to use cast. I have both the Lyman #3 and #4 cast manuals and use them both a lot. Tools you can be pretty flexible and start small. But you do need a few...
