    I'm with Walnut. I think that they have no way of altering BATF records, so rather than get in trouble they just refuse. After all, if a customer really wants that barrel longer/shorter all they have to do is buy one with a different barrel....

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Youknow what ? in Our Chapel
    I don't have many regrets, a few yes, times I did stupid things that caused pain and heartbreak. My biggest regret is that it took me so long to stop making stupid mistakes. And stop repeating them. And that I wasted 40 years being stiff necked...

    What Hatch said. Shut it all off. Bases in foreign country's should be decommissioned. Pull the equipment and the troops home. Time to look after our own. IF we have excess troops put them to work opening every single container that enters...

    As you sow, so shall you reap. Great lesson and a good reminder of why we should not judge. We should understand, empathize, be sympathetic. If you look inside your heart, find those memorys that have been locked away because of the pain...

    I have a step daughter who has been a waitress, survived on tips essentially. Got paid less than 4$ per hour. If she wanted to eat, she had to hussle and make tips. Actually it drove home some very good life lessons for her. And changed my...

    I did it for a Win 94 .30-30 with a bad bore. I drilled a block of plastic to slightly larger than the size I wanted to size them up to. Reversed the drill in the chuck so I had the flat end down. Placed a piece of thin steel over the...

    I have to agree with Roger. Started out with next to nothing. Sitting on a fair stash, somewhere in the 3-400 lbs area, but I am not shooting near as much as I was either.

    In the last 2 years I have bought 150 lbs of COWW smelted, in muffin ingots, in 5 gal bucket, delivered to my door. Paid a dollar a pound and felt like a real winner. For wheel weights in a bucket my max would probably be 45 or 50 cents per...

    I have been looking for a pistol with 6" barrel that would shoot either the .32 H&R or the .327 fed. I have yet to find one that appeals to me enough to pry the cash out of my pocket. I have a pair of H&R Revolvers, 732,733 2.5 inch barrels...

    now, I haven't even tried cast in my ar, yet, but wouldn't COWW's with just a bit of lino, heat treated or quenched, be hard enough ( considering the use of a gas check)?

    Red Dot because A it works. B moderate loads 4-7 grains perform very well. Plus are very accurate. As compared to a rifle load of slow powder at 50+ grains. C Red Dot is my go-to powder for most things. Not my SKS's favorite, but everything...

    I have Hipoint carbines in 9mm, .40sw and .45acp. .40 was first, dropped a 60$ Red Dot on it and loved it. Wife loved it, but wanted one that "bumped her shoulder less". Enter the first 9mm (had 2, both used, let a shooting buddy rob me of one) ...

    I have Hipoint Carbines in 9mm, .40sw, and .45acp. Of the three I think I like the .45acp the best. I have handi rifles in .357mag, .44mag, 9mm and .45colt. .357 is dang accurate, frankly none of them suck. .45colt is fun but so are the...
