    The same separator that rids your brass of corn cob or walnut gets the pins out, especially under water. It rinses the acid out at the same time.

    Don't forget that high tin pewter creeks and groans when bent. It's a pretty reliable positive sign.

    I thought electronics were supposed to make life simpler, like "the paperless society". Remember when if the round TV picture was fuzzy, you went outside and turned the antinna. If that didn't help, ya just watched a different station, after all...

    The day my Dad retired, he took off his watch and placed it in a drawer. Later I ask him what day it was and he answered, "What does it matter''? Life is like that. Age changes perspective. Time is only important if you are reacting to someone...

    As I gain maturity, I get just as much, or more pleasure out of tiny holes, close together, at a great distance, on paper, as seeing an animal fall at the crack if my rifle. I now have issues walking and it's easier to traverse the mowed grassy...

    Eye of squirrel is impossible when even the head of the squirrel is hard to see. Age offers you new challenges. Even center mass is a small target.

    I don't imagine today's youth will ever see guns at reasonable prices sold OTC. And today's ventage surplus military rifles will never come to pass again.

    The wet heavy snow finally topped out at 2+ inches and is leaving fast. Under the evergreens where it was thin, it's gone. The roads never got to be a problem locally, but caused several major wrecks not too far to the North. It is nice to see it...

    What is being promoted and taught in our schools is only what profits someone. My Dad always said, "Follow the money and you'll find the source at the end of the trail". You'd be surprised to find how many don't know the signifncance of the date 9...

    I remember as a 5th grader writing what I thought was an extensive report on the event. In retrospect, it was wanting for many facts but was through enough to get an A+ grade. The list of WWII living Vets is wearing thin and before long they...

    We have a new store nearby, but it's not the same as the old surplus. Gone are the days of the great deals for young guys. Everything now is unfamiliar new stuff. Guess I just dated myself.

    This is the only use I have found for the mold spray lube. It helps stop the beard that hangs off the ladle, drop at the most inopportune time.

    Although everything has value the steel and brass cases take up space and that is more valuable to me than even the scrap value. I have a bucket for each, but only because I haven't trashed them yet. As a project to see if it's possible to reload...

    By heating the head of the case enough to fire the primer, you will likely render the case useless. The process is called annealing which is good for the mouth and neck, but not the head. Push the primer, pour the powder, and save the case and...
