    I must not have sent the "I'll take it on the lathe dogs" though I've gotten the reply to the PM. Or maybe I did it backwards. Or something... Oh well. As long as it all works. Bill

    That was essentially my point. Lots of folks have thought it was real near the end doesn't make it so. We may have to wait until no one worries about it anymore, or it may happen before the end of this day, and in any case it will be a surprise.

    yep. Most recent actual loss, never recovered, was also shipped from Ebay. Was scanned diagonally across the street from my place, but wasn't able to get that info until nearly 3 months later. Never showed up, and because it took so long to get...

    It's kind of hard to tell. My 2nd stepfather thought very seriously that we were just before the Rapture in 1965. He was training my little brother and I to be his soldiers in the aftermath. I guess he didn't expect to be one of those Raptured. Here...

    The NRA has been forgetting what it stands for on and off since I've been aware enough to keep track of them. I'm not surprised, honestly, that they lost track of what they're supposed to be doing. I just recently became a member again, because...

    Every one of those kids was born after I retired. And I've outlived kids who worked with me when we were both on active duty, too. I'm feeling old and I'm only 65. Heck, a couple of my young cousins are now retired from the Army, both Iraq &...

    I think you have too much blood in your caffeine system, but I'd suggest switching to Russian Caravan Tea. More caffeine per cup, so you can get really wired faster. ;)

    I bought some reloading books here, and USPS took 4 days to go from the Daytona Beach, Fl, area to Jacksonville, Fl, maybe 100 miles straight up the coast. Once it made it to Jacksonville, another 3 or 4 days here to OKC. It was showing on track for...

    A few years ago I shot a chronograph with a direct hit from my 35 Whelen. This time, same rifle, a gas check came off a 358 627 boolit and struck the screen on my new unit. This one died after only 3 trips to the range. This is getting expensive....

    stupid question for you: how many rounds fit in the magazine? Looked on Gunbroker.com, prices are kind of scary. But I'd love one.

    Buffalo Arms carries them, reformed from .32 S&W Long. Can be cut down to make .32 Colt Short. Out if stock right now. I bought 20 rounds from them for a couple of Steven's 32RF, one long, one short, that I'm working on converting to centerfire....

    Two tuxedo cats and a dog, who claims he's a cat, too. And one orange dreamcicle cat. Four guys, three girls, and the guys are outnumbered.

    Buy a bottle of benadryl and carry on, or pack your stuff and git, depending on what you think your chances are. Personally, I won't live in a house without a harmless necessary cat. Or more. My 90lb dog identifies as a cat. I keep telling him he's...

    Old Rock Island was a US Arsenal. Modern Rock Island is a company in the Philippines. Also known as Armscor International. Not saying they're bad, BTW. I've looked at them at my favorite LGS, and they're at least as nicely made as mine looked and...

    It will work IF it's ABS. It's essentially chemical welding. If you have a 3D printer and some ABS filament, you can feed more material in to the joint to help fill gaps. Or get one the Harbor Freight plastic welders and try that. I doubt you have...

    Scrounge replied to a thread Pewter projectiles in Cast Boolits
    IIRC, the Japanese were loading wooden bullets towards the end of WWII because they didn't have enough lead for bullets. From what I understood, they worked, sort of. Not good for long distance, not very accurate. Pewter will be light, and not as...

    I was active duty from 1973 to 1997. "My" war was Desert Storm, August 1990-March 1991, though I enlisted before the war in Vietnam was over. We had, IIRC, 249 fatalities in that time frame. That was fewer than the usual annual fatalities from...
