    Don't ever sell it. Stock up on pellets while you can. I've had my "ol blue" since the early 70's. We've killed a lot of blackbirds, some rabbits. I've used it for 4 house cats that were "ready to go". I was raised old school. I don't...

    Been there done that. I have a baggie full of .223 blank ammo, yeah still live. Good for nothing else. Trimming to length removes the crimped portion at the end. I suspect it was slightly thinner brass. I did not do much in the way of...

    I agree with Boaz. When in doubt, ask. There are a couple of things that I don't necessarily agree with him on. But once I asked and understood WHY I was able to accept and move past.

    Increase of load weight means you need to lower charge to keep pressures lower. Decrease of load weight = less pressure. So If I lowered it at all it would not be much. I might add some buffer to help make up some of that weight. I also...

    Gee whiz, Char Gar! You're kind'a tough on Trump, aren't you? I agree that he once WAS a slime ball. But some time back, he came to belief, and it surely looks a lot like he's trying to grow in faith and understanding. It's much harder for the...

    All 3 of mine wear 60$ range truglo Red Dots. The .45acp has the 2x optical Truglo Red Dot. Looks like a small short scope with small bell's. Does a wonderful job of helping bring those targets in where I can see them.

    Some guns will shoot better than others, when shot by the same guy on the same day with the same loads, so there's no real answer to the original question here. Also, with the .44, there's a heaping helping of recoil, and no two people handle...

    "1984" was an interesting book. Some view it as a sort of prophesy! And indeed, there are those about in diverse places who'd very much LIKE to eavesdrop on all our conversations, if not look directly into our minds these days. Where will it all...

    This lesson reminds me of that old story about the fellow walking by the seaside with Christ. When he looked over his shoulder, he noted only one set of footprints in the sand in some places. This bothered him, and he looked to Christ, and said,...

    This is perhaps the hardest part of salvation for us dumb humans to get through our thick skulls? We are so oriented towards what we can see, what we feel and can control, that it's awfully hard for most of us to really have full faith in this...

    Revelations is a chapter that I simply take as given, and don't try to discern much about it. It's good to know what the end will be like, of course, but it tells us near the beginning that we won't be able to understand it, and that seems clearly...

    I dunno, Boaz. I get your point, but at least some folks DO turn back, or away from Christ, when following Him "costs" them more than they're willing to "pay." But it could legitimately be said, I think, that those folks never really KNEW Him to...
