    GhostHawk replied to a thread Friends...ya need 'em in Our Town
    We have a lot of acquaintances, some closer than others. But a true friend is the one you can call when your car breaks down 40 miles from anywhere. And when you hang up the phone you stop worrying. Because you KNOW he is coming, and won't get...

    I watched my dad live to 93. Last 5 years he was legally blind with Macular degeneration. He could with the aid of a walker get from bed to bathroom, from there to chair in living room, slowly. Frail, yes. His chief pastime was yelling at mom. ...

    This is a simple Kydex Sheath with a belt loop made from a leather belt. Sewed in the back it is cut to the same shape as the sheath. Then I used bank line zig zagging between the grommits to hold it all together. The copper wire in the shape of...

    Belt loop can be accomplished a couple of different ways. A couple of mine use a simple leather strap sewed together at the ends and attached to the sheath. One I used a longer length and doubled it back on itself for a belt loop/pocket clip. ...

    Sheridan Blue Streak, use only the power you need. 2-3 pumps will kill most birds with a head shot very dead very fast. Bunnies I did normally go up to 4 pumps. It had a definite sound to it, but it did not really sound like a gunshot. My...

    I did not really get into pistols period until I was pushing 60. And at that it took me a while to get hooked on revolvers. But it happened. Started with a 22 + yr old Heritage Rough Rider switch cylinder in .22lr and .22mag. I just never could...

    You know Kydex is not hard to work with. A few sheets of Kydex, a harbor freight heat gun, some double cap rivets or small grommets. (I prefer grommets) Use a pad made from an old towel folded to appropriate size for the bottom. Another for...

    That is my vote also. I had 2 9mm's keyholing badly with the Lee .356 124. I feed both with those .358 125 rnfp as cast. No sizing. Alloy is roughly 50% COWW and 50% range scrap or soft lead with 1% tin/pewter added. They come out .359-.3595...

    My favorite is the Lee .312 185 gr gas check. Size to suit your barrel. Second favorite is the little .314 90 gr tumble lubed Truncated Cone by lee. This is an awesome plinking or small game round. Over 4-5 grains of Red Dot it is quiet, and...

    Fed Auto Match for the pair of 22/45's as said above they eat that stuff up. I did buy 2,000 rounds of CCI Mini Mags for the rifle. And a thousand rounds of .22mag for the Heritage Rough Rider. Pretty good stash on hand. Never had a...

    The flip side of that coin is being able to load for your .410 in a SHTF situation. I personally prefer the magtech 2.5" brass hulls. But finding data for smokeless powder takes some real google-fu. Not to say it can't be done, just not easy. ...

    IMO there are no bad calibers, some are just more interesting than others. Some may be more difficult to get to work with a particular combination. But thus far I have found no caliber that could not be accurate with a little time and load...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Dexron in Gunsmithing Tips & Tricks
    You know you don't have to make ed's red. You can use straight dextron. Works great for leading, cleaning and lubricating revolvers, just about anything you can imagine. Little Dextron on a q-tip or patch and go to town.

    Like artful I have a mix. Longer rifles and shotguns are in hard plastic cases. I do prefer the slightly shorter, lighter weight soft fabric cases with magazine/ammo pouches under a zipper. I have several that were designed with AR-15's in...

    I cast for years with a cast iron pot on my natural gas kitchen stove. Was not a fast process, but did not need to be. I first went to a used 4 lb Lee dipper pot, bought here. Then a new 4 lb dipper pot with Thermostat. Then I discovered the...

    Both. I have some alloy mixed up ahead of time, normally 50% COWW 49% range scrap or soft lead and 1% tin or Pewter. I also have both COWW ingots and Range scrap ingots and muffin tin Pewter "coins" so I can adapt in the pot as needed. ...
