    That brings up another question. My friend, who lives near me, is happy with his tracfone service coverage with his flip phone. Since I am considering a ZTE phone that uses android software, if I use tracfone for service, will my phone be using...

    We that is the thing, since I've never had a cell phone, I don't know how much I'd use it for internet? Honestly, I don't know how much I'd use it for calls/texts either, as I really don't like talking on the phone. It'd get used mostly when...

    I've never had a Cell phone, never needed a cell phone, but I'm thinking now might be the time. After searching contract plans and no contract plans, I think the way to go for me is Tracfone. Tracfone has a bunch of phones to choose from on their...

    I have the NOE 358 128 SWC that I size to .357 and load in 9mm. but I will admit, the shoulder is tiny and it looks more like a TC...but it cycles in the 9mm guns I own. In regards to cutting a GC shank, I bet a cannelure tool might be able to...

    I don't think it is Phoenix that you are looking for, He hasn't logged in for 12 months. Also, There isn't any old threads of his, where he had a group buy or similar for ingot molds. Did you see this current thread, It is a group buy for a...
