    There are pointed bullets. They are mostly for bolt actions, single shots and used for long range. For semi autos we use bullet hoses that feed reliably and for hunting you want a nose profile that feeds and kills reliably. Sent from my...

    IMO, the best repair job on aluminum is to have it Ceracoated. You can even pick a color if you're so inclined. It adheres better and protects the finish and surface MUCH better than anything else available. But if you want it to look "original,"...

    Slug, your thinking is very narrow and constrained. God made man to have a will of his own. It seems very logical that a true God would not want mere mechanical expressions of worship and praise, but the genuine thing that can emanate ONLY from...

    Lord, thank you for all the many blessings you have bestowed upon all of us. They outnumber the stars in the sky, and we are usually only aware of the ones we've prayed for. Help us to understand just how amazingly generous and loving You really...

    The best summation of the conflict that goes on within most of us (believers) again and again, until we mature and REALLY give our lives to Christ. He's always in control, and it takes a while for most of us to learn to accept that. We like to...

    Wayne is right. Our faith is weak, generally, and we have a very hard time accepting His grace, and especially in really expecting a cure for the big things in our lives. But we MUST keep trying, and repeatedly so. It's amazing, but we actually...

    Our church records every service and puts them on Youtube, so we can watch them repeatedly if desired, and whenever we can get the time to watch. It's working out very well so far. And no, it's not quite the same, but when the mind and spirit are...

    AA#9 might "help" but it does NOT stop bullet setback. And, that's with a proper 357 Sig case. Reform one from a .40 S&W, and end up with an even shorter neck, and you are barking for trouble.
