    DCP started a thread Zippo Lighter in Our Town
    A lot of folks don't recommend Zippos for pipes or cigars. Some recommend Everclear 190, Methanol, Moonshine, Coleman fuel So any opinions out there? Thanks

    :happy dance: I was looking for a "smiley" that is rolling on the floor with laughter, but I guess this one will have to do. It's hard to work up any sympathy for a fellow who has a 6.5 Krag instead of a Mauser! :-D I've got both, several of the...

    I definitely consider the tire rest as still being a good method to test fire long guns. Put the butt inside the tire, tie the fore end down over the side of the tire, and pull the trigger with a string from a safe vantage point. The tire may rock...

    My best advice: Try Triple K Mfg. Co., 222 Commercial St., San Diego, CA 92113, 800-521-5062, 619-232-2066, ask about Magazine No. 43. Since Gabilondo company went out of business years ago, an aftermarket replacement is your best bet.
