    jimlj replied to a thread Crow? in Cookin' Recipe's
    When I got married 38 years ago, I ate a lot of crow. Never liked it much so I've learned to keep my mouth shut at the appropriate times.

    I just pulled the bullets from a few of the rounds. The longer cartridge has a 202 grain bullet with two lube groves, the shorter has a 200 grain bullet with 1 grove. The longer of the two has 18.2 grains of black powder. The shorter of the two I...

    Did you go back to the guys house/business? I had a guy paint my Mustang a few years ago. Several calls and voice mails got no response. A 40 mile trip to his place of business made all the difference. He wasn't trying to scam me, but just kept...

    Sounds like a nice trip. I can only imagine what my wife would say if I suggested taking a tent and air mattress camping. What you said about public lands is true, and I think most people who live around them don't realize what a treasure they are....

    jimlj replied to a thread Once fired brass in Our Town
    On a totally unrelated note, I have a NIB Colt Python for sale, cheap. I have several hundred pounds of "once fired brass" I'd trade for that NIB Colt Python.

    jimlj replied to a thread FedX in Our Town
    Last winter I had a package delivered by fedx. Online tracking said it was delivered and left on the front porch. Only problem is I hadn't shoveled snow yet and not a track around any of my doors. It showed up 3 days later.

    jimlj replied to a thread cutting tile in Our Town
    I bought an inexpensive saw (7"??) at HD about 20 years ago for a bathroom floor, thinking if it lasted through the bathroom I'd be money ahead over renting a saw. I have used it on several other projects, and loaned it to several people and it's...

    I just took some more measurements. I thought these were straight wall cases, they are not. The longer of the two center fire cases measures .456" just ahead of the rim, and tapers to .447" just before the roll crimp at the bullet. The bullet...

    jimlj replied to a thread Good day at the gun club... in Our Town
    I love shooting with my now 30 year old son. We have been shooting together since he was about 5. I understand having trouble shooting a rifle right handed. I can't quite get the hang of shouldering and aiming a rifle off the right shoulder. Over...

    +1 for Dan Wesson revolvers. My 30 plus year old 715 shoots better than any S&W, Ruger or Taurus I have ever owned. My only complaint is I don't like the way they finish the end of the heavy vent rib barrel. I'm just not brave enough to take a...
