    Update. This morning cindy woke up pain free, able to walk, move, get out of bed, etc. Spent most of the morning cleaning, reorganizing the bedroom for improved access, fewer things to trip over or get hung up on with a walker. Seeing her...

    It is hard in the day to day walk of life to abandon our will and follow our Lords. We can be stubborn, stop listening, dig in our heels. But yes we are going down that path one way or another. Easiest by far to accept that he knows best. Give...

    I have 2 9mm's that require .358 or larger to not keyhole. Both love .38 special 125 gr which drop at .358 or .359. I don't size those. Find out what fits in yours. Once you have a dummy round that works crimp it, use it to set your dies.

    I know what you are talking about. I believe there is not a difference. The H is the out side of the die and the I is the inside plunger. Only difference I remember is that the really older ones were cut different to shave lead. The oldish to...

    Evangelism was indeed derived from the Great Commission, but more than that, it derives from the necessity of getting all to know the lord. Some, like Slug, are so deeply steeped in nihlistic cynicism that they are incapable of receiving the light....

    The Bible never addressed the issue of extraterrestrial life, so if it exists, I can only conclude that the same God who created the rest of the universe also created them. Confirming extraterrestrial life wouldn't have the least effect on my...

    I'm with Ick on this matter. Sometimes, if not regularly, we read the Bible with a very limited perspective. That can often lead us to conclude erroneously, and this, I believe, is one of those times. God is perfect. Therefore, He CANNOT...

    Thanks, Wayne. You're right. Fear is insidious and terribly destructive. That's one of the great values of Christ's love and His promises. If we accept His offer fully, we have nothing left to fear. Nothing, not even death, can harm us. At...

    The Lord knows every secret we try to hide in our hearts. He knows how and when we're tempted, and he knows when we give in to it. But He also provides redemption for us if we confess our sins and turn away from them, too. Truly, we worship a...

    You're in my prayers, Bazoo, and your family and friends as well. Things like this affect a lot of folks. Keep the faith, and remember, a Christian has nothing to fear and everything to look forward to if it's the worst. God never intended for us...

    If your fairly handy, have worked on some airguns, and have access to a new seal, maybe. Seal should not have gone after 50 rounds. I'd be concerned about a burr or fault in the cylinder causing it. You might need to hone it out to solve the...
