    I did the same as reslotcar and boiled my two Stars. The lube all floated to the top. Just a simple skimming of the surface to get rid of the old lube and they came out nice and clean. If anything, I'd lean toward the side of caution and see if the...

    I have both a Lyman #452423, and the NOE clone. They Lyman in a 2 cavity I purchased roughly 30 years ago. And the NOE in a 4 cavity solid I bought and have not used as of yet. It's a heck of a boolit, no doubt. Now I am wondering. Is the NOE...

    A few years back I purchased 3K of bulk 9mm brass. I decided to sort them out by head stamp. Once sorted, I was looking at the one can I had marked 'Various' and noticed the ring inside of the case. As luck would have it, a thread had popped up here...

    My local gun club shut down over 15 years ago, a sad day indeed. I spent many hours there over the course of the 20+ years it was in operation. How much time I would spend on the range on any given day, depended on my needs. I worked a rotating...

    Murphy replied to a thread RV shopping. Madness. in Our Town
    I've only owned one RV in my life. That was 20 years ago and I can't even remember the brand, but definitely an older model. I bought it used on the cheap. It served it's purpose for my needs for a few years, deer season's. Other than that, one trip...

    It's hard enough being a blued steel and walnut gun man. Afraid of casting? No. Afraid of running out of ammunition? Who isn't? Murphy

Basic Information

About Odfanatic
I'm a life-long Tennesseean. I enjoy fishing for trout, bass, and catfish a little, but I shoot a whole lot more.

Reading history and biography books takes up a lot of time when I'm not doing homework or workin'. Topics might include U. S. and Tennessee history,The Bible, U.S. Army and TN Army National Guard doctrine and materials, real leaders and the soldiers that enabled them (Andrew Jackson, Daniel Boone, James Robertson, John Sevier, Sam Houston, Alvin York, Davy Crockett, The Bell Witch [of Adams, TN lore], Stonewall Jackson, George Washington, George S. Patton, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Douglas MacArthur) The Revolution, The "Wild" West (How was any it wilder than the present?), The War of Northern Oppression, WWI & WWII, etc., along with some fiction (usually literature "classics").

Some movie favorites (in random order) are Clint Eastwood's "Pale Rider", Joel Cohen's "The Big Lebowski", John Irvin's "Hamburger Hill", Stuart Rosenberg's "Cool Hand Luke", Sergio Leone's "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly", Stanley Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove", and Quentin Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs".

Reloading for handguns began around November 2010, and for the following calibers: 9mm, .40 S&W (for Generation 4 Glocks including the 17, 26 & 23), .44 Magnum and Special (S&W Model 29-10 and my Henry Big Boy .44), and .45 ACP (Sig Sauer P220).

Since starting out with a single stage RCBS Rock Chucker and then quickly graduating to a Dillon RL550-B, I've developed an interest in single action revolvers, lever guns, and the associated history of their development along with the different calibers. I am excited to begin modifying my first Colt SAA clone, a blued 4-3/4" European Arms "Bounty Hunter" chambered in .45 Long Colt.


Respectfully- Randy
