    Cig's for 12 years, pipe for 30, for the pipe the zippo was dang good. And as long as I used good quality fuel I had no complaints. My favorite when sitting around a campfire was to use a pine or cedar twig to light my pipe. Lovely little...

    You could also cover it with a new design, decal, or simply a round black spot.

    no, I wasn't really thinking when I said six inch, I guess it would be bigger, I usually use a half propane bottle, I wonder if I wrapped the element around the bottom of it? but yeah, its for smelting, I have a lee 20lb bottom pour for my casting.

    I already use a bayou sp1 jet fryer, and a half propane tank, was thinking electric would be easier/cheaper. but I usually do 100-120lbs at a time, so not sure if it would do it

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Goose hunting in Hunting with CB's
    He's right, shoot em in the head. Takes a LOT of leade if they are moving. Took me years to figure out I was swinging on the lead bird and dropping the 2nd, 3rd or 4th bird back.

    Late 70's early 80's I noticed that my then favorite Rem .22lr in the clear yellow 100 round box were starting to gum up my mag's. I have not bought Remington ammo since. CCI, Winchester, Federal all seem mostly ok. Perhaps not quite what...
