    Too cute. At first glance, I read 1/2 the topic sentence and saw the lola's picture first. I was all set to say, "Ahhhh,,, she looks just like you":bigsmyl2:

    I've run into that question a few times. I'd tell 'em, 'Not everything is like flying a airplane where the more you do it, the better you get'. Then I'd ask, 'Do ya think it took me 19 years to figure it out and then to do it right for 1 year, ...

    I'd guess it was due to mixing a discussion topic with a WTB post here on S&S.

    I'd have to try a 3-5 shot group both ways** to see for myself if there is a difference, or if its just my sight picture & alignment. ** And as Dustin Hoffman would say from 'The Little Big Man': You'll also have to use all your squint eyed...

    I run across a few here & there. The factory load for them is a little hotter and so designated with the +P stamp. They're marketed to law enforcement, personal defense ammo, but the cases are the same. I just leave 'em in the bucket, and use...

    I do it mostly in the cooler months. It's more comfortable to wear heavy clothes before or after our summer, in case the tinsel fairy stops by.:bigsmyl2:

    If you're not confident with taking it apart- soak it in a solvent awhile, and get a spray can of brake cleaner or carberator spray. Soak it, then blast the spray through it. As the bolt is wet with solvent- 'wiggle and giggle' the firing pin...

    Way cool! A buddy asked me how much cheaper it was to reload. I told him I wasn't exactly sure, but I thought I was in the process of going broke by saving money to find out.

    Nah... The logic is that whatever a .22LR can do, a .44-40 can do better.:bigsmyl2:

    Yeah, I remember the term from when folks that should know better, used it so they (hopefully) wouldn't offend people that hate us anyway, and think all meat items should only come from the grocery store- since no animals are harmed in the...

    Cool. What I learned from a little bit of squirrel hunting without a dog was to go out in the woods, and take a nap. After you've been there a hour or so, they'll get used to you, not see you as a threat, and come back out of hiding.

    Even if he'd kept running- the world is round, he'd be back. Since it didn't panic, get spooked, and take off at the speed of light- he's probably still pretty close there in his territory, and might be back there checking his rubs tomorrow.

    I had one and it did a great job for me. What I learned one day is that if you're going downhill, carrying a deer over your shoulders, holding its legs and a rifle-- When you fall, and push the rifle (scope facing downward) out to break your...

    I'd just watch close as it runs dry, then do a quickie clean out and refill with the new powder.

    Cool. I used to know a guy who worked at the city bus terminal. He would bring me ones they couldn't reuse. They were so big---- I thought they looked like a banana compared to the ones for car tires.

    I've never seen them listed anywhere separately. Of the places I shop that carry them, they offer different aperture discs, but not stems. If Midway or Brownell's doesn't carry them, they're probably not to be had without dealing with the...

    I'd pick the boolit ya want to use, and load the max. charge for it out of a manual. Without splitting hairs, or overthinking this: I figure any unarmored target hit with anything in .44 cal. will seriously reconsider their present course of...

    I was in a blind once and had a squirrel climb out on a not to distant branch and start barking at me. When another animal is mad, loud, and sounding a danger alarm, deer will tend to move away from the sound. The squirrel wouldn't shut up. ...

    I'm real hesitant about taking off metal anywhere since if I take off too much, I can't put it back on. If I was doing it, I'd go slow and easy and check it after every 3-4 lapping shots. I'd also lean towards the finer and less aggressive...
