    Indeed it does. I still shoot stout loads from my SRH .44, but 99% of my plinking now is with my 9mm LC9s Pro and my CZ 75 SP-01. I'm losing weight pretty quickly now, no need to beat myself to death.

    Tom W. replied to a thread Half Moon Club in Our Town
    My .270 NEF used to come open. I think it was because I wasn't paying attention to my handloads and failed to measure the brass a few times. That was one rifle that needed that cases trimmed every time. I still can't remember what happened to...

    Tom W. replied to a thread Half Moon Club in Our Town
    A young boy wanted to shoot my scoped .454 Encore pistol. I didn't have anything but some heavy .45 Colt loads. I asked his father who was standing next to him if he thought the boy could handle it. Dad said yes, so I loaded a round and told the kid...

    Tom W. replied to a thread At the range today... in Our Town
    The rifle bench is 168 yards to the berm, the pistol range is 50 yards to the berm. There are metal sillouettes that the rifle shooters can shoot at, and with the pistol range so close there is the possibility, however remote, of a ricochet.....

    I know about neuropathy, got it from chemo. Without shoes or at least flip-flops it feels like I'm walking on roadside gravel.

    I went to the Sheriff's office range today, just taking my .22/45, Ruger LC9s Pro and my CZ 75 SP-01. I've been having issues with the CZ not wanting to feed the same ammo that my former Glocks and my Ruger fire with glee. I've been sizing down to...

    Back in the old days we'd put on a pair of new boots and head to the pond, creek or whatever, and wade until the boots got saturated, then wear them the rest of the day.It worked Now days there are so many things that are on or in boots that it...

    I went to the shed with the intention of finding a few cans of spray paint to repaint the mailbox and flag. While there I somehow managed to plug in my drip-o-matic and pour another +/- 150 Lee 125 gr. RF. I can resize them to .357 for my CZ or...

    I used to use it on my Maxi Balls until I found that a good concoction kept the fouling softer. And I had a lot that my sons managed to confiscate from some wild bees.... I even made some sticks of the stuff and put in my lubrisizer. It wasn't the...
