    shooterg replied to a thread oh well did it again in Our Town
    I have 2 of the S&W's , one blue and one still mostly nickel. The nickel one shoots to point of aim with most loads, the blue one not so much, but really fun to blast at the steel in the back yard "gunfighter style" ! You made out great on the Smith...

    Alleys hereabouts won't give the scarred pins away anymore. Some will sell 'em. Many have 'em refurbished instead of using new replacements. I paid $15 per 10 last 20 I got.

    I think JB has it figured out - saw the bottle openers too ! I have done the chain pull thing - the basement lights are .223 dummies. In an old American Rifleman I saw a .30-06 case turned into a whistle ! I tried but could not get it right. Put...

    I'll try the anneal first and if it looks like trouble, will trim 'em at the crimp - short neck should still be crimpable and hold a bullet. fwie - HS is LC15 ! Guess the guvmint still supplies blanks to the American Legion. Have some keyring...

    A little Chopmunk started my grandson out. The Cricket looks same same , except for the plastic cocking piece. I love that they have an aperture sight. But I'm too cheap to use full drink cans ! I use empties , refilled with water, as the can...
