    Blackwater replied to a thread please say a prayer in Our Chapel
    Thanks for the update, Lloyd. I understand about the "Catch 22" situation, and it IS indeed a tough nut to crack. But even the toughest nuts DO crack when enough pressure and force is applied! So don't give up the ship. The realities she's...

    This can be a pretty fascinating subject. I think that's because we probably can't know the ultimate answer to it? How does one differentiate between actual possession, and just plain old weakness, meanness, and wilfulness combined with...

    Thought that recipe calls for bee wax? 50/50 bee wax and Vaseline with teaspoon of lanolin. Add candle wax as necessary to bring up lube hardness. That's what I used in my pistols.

    Good deals are there. Just have to weed them out. I always put things in order of cheapest price including shipping. That puts the crooks on the last page. I just ordered my first lube sizer off there. A Lyman 45 in good shape. Seller says it works...

    He's right, shoot em in the head. Takes a LOT of leade if they are moving. Took me years to figure out I was swinging on the lead bird and dropping the 2nd, 3rd or 4th bird back.

    Thanks to all of you. I wasn't really in "trouble," and mostly was just having side effects from some meds that really made me less than a good social participant. Also took all my "get up and go" and just left with it, too! But I'm mostly...
