    GhostHawk replied to a thread New Hobo stoves in Camping Gear
    I have one of those Ikea stoves, did not even put bolts in bottom. Set it in an old pie tin, drop in a handful of twigs, short squeeze of hand sanitizer, or bug spray and a quick zap from a ferrocerium rod and you have fire. Just right for...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread Good old days in Military Rifles
    Agree, these days right here are just fine. Yesterday had my son in law to the range. He had mentioned that he has been waiting 15 years for his dad to take him out and teach him to shoot. Never happened. Although he did for his other 2 sons. ...

    35 shooter replied to a thread FWB 602 first shots! in AirGuns
    That’s a fine looking rifle. I think you did VERY well getting adjusted to irons from being used to a scope. It’s obviously a very accurate rifle too.

    Bullet fit is king. Period. Get this right first, then worry about other variables. Keyholing, large groups, yes in my experience a larger bullet fixed both. You want to do it with a coating, that is ok. May give you enough, may not. I...

    Thanks for the link, that was fun to watch. They were stretching some of those shots on out there for sure.

    50% clip on wheel weights and 50% range scrap or soft lead with maybe 1-2% of tin/pewter added is what I aim for. Mostly these days I am not shooting high velocity rifle so I tend not to water drop. The above alloy air cooled with BLL shot at...

    I have no problem paying 20$ for a transfer. I used to use a local pawn shop, had several issues, one gun that I never got because they never talked to the dealer. I dumped them, found a reputable guy that rents a small 8x10' suite in an office. He...

    Nice guys finish last. I do try to be nice where I can, but not where it will cost me anything. When it comes to deals, money changing hands, I aim for honest. I give good value, I don't cheat, lie, scam. I expect others to try to do that to...

    A few times in the last couple of years I had occaison to try to sell a gun, local gun shop, pawn shop, etc. Normal seemed to be aprox 1/4 to 1/3 of what they figure they can sell the gun for. So for a 600$ Win 94 from 1944 a 150$ offer was...

    Whatever range you can put 9 out of 10 into a 3" circle. Both calibers IMO with good loads and assuming decent shooting are capable further than what you posted. The .45 colt handi barrel you sold me stacks them into a roughly 1.5 inch group...

    I'm sorry to hear that. Been praying, and quiet. Been living through a few trials of my own. Nothing like her's though. Just a bad tooth and a bad neighbor causing problems for me with City. Tooth is gone, cleanup is about done for this...

    In the last 4 years the only jacketed I have loaded and shot was in .223rem. And to be honest, once I had a mold and did some load development I was happier with cast and moderate to light loads of Red Dot. Accurate enough, quieter, cheaper,...
