    georgerkahn replied to a thread Truck problums in Our Town
    The first thing I would look at, bion, is a fuel problem. I'd think it might be worth just a very few dollars for any of good over the counter fuel "fixers" at your local auto parts store. Second, definitely might be the fuel filters. I had...

    I have had great success with hinges from Cherry Tree -- https://cherrytreetoys.com/hinges/ -- re both the sizes they offer as well as the quality. I WILL add, however, it's been about a decade since my last order, so there is a good chance the...

    For me, it was a (Hialeah, Florida) Universal M1 Carbine. I had bought it way back when, at the time I HAD (lots of friends had M1 carbines) to have one, and the price was 1/3rd what military was going for. A not-too distant shop recently had a...

    I have an Ohaus (RCBS) triple-beam, the RCBS new digital, and a simple Redding balance. To complement a hand-loader (truck tailgate loading at range, using Buchanan tool) I picked up a Dillon Determinator for about $85.00 off eBay. I marvel at...

    In a region where minus twenty Fahrenheit is not a rarity in winter, I have an off-grid Wilderness Travel Trailer as my camp. Bion, I have two plus sources of heat. First, when it's really cold, I fire an infrared heater which sits upon a...

    georgerkahn replied to a thread PCP info in AirGuns
    I cannot address 100 yards, as frankly have never tried target potential at this distance. (For both rimfire and center-fire, I "zero" at 75 yards). Re my S200 Air Arms .22 PCP, at 10 meters in a "Tipton Best Gun Vice", the ten-shot groups...

    Pighunter -- There are myriads of variables, including even the manufacturer of your brass. I have included here a chart with some manufacturer's alloy -- numbers are in percentages -- for you to see this. Another variable is the chamber size of...

    In my area, I pretty much have benched my Essence-fueled Coleman stove -- a 2-burner from the late 1950s -- the one with the round fuel tank. Reason? Coleman fuel seems almost impossible to find. On occasion a Wal*Mart has it, but not at store in...

    Overkill -- airguns are indeed a different planet -- and, it's not too bad a planet :). Air Venturi came out with their Nomad II compressor which is quite the 20-pound marvel -- runs off either 12VDC (e.g., your vehicle's battery) or plugs into a...
