    ThomR replied to a thread Changing minds??? in Our Town
    Before my wife and I got married she was scared of guns, she has since learned to use them and respect them. She has on numerous occasions told me that people in her home country never carried guns. My response to that is usually something to the...

    I've never had any negative experiences with any of the major carriers. I get a little ticked off when Fedex smartpost and UPS mail innovations do the shuffle around the country with my package for a week. I ordered a couple items from MidwayUSA ten...

    I have never witnessed anything that could be described as supernatural. My brother and mother on the other hand seem to be more susceptible to experiencing weird stuff.

    I powder coat the Lee 356-124-TC TL bullets. I have never had any leading from them, and get excellent accuracy.

    The hand surgeon looked at it and said it was worse than I originally thought it was. When she looked at my finger she said she could see the bone, so there was more damage than I thought.

    Mattw, If you want to try out some of the Lee 124 grain TC tumble lube bullets let me know. I will send you some. I can't speak for the 120 grain lube groove version, but the tumble lube version is very accurate out of my pistol.

    I go to get my stitches out tomorrow. My finger seems to be doing pretty good. I went out and put about 40 rounds down range today with my pistol and my wife's pistol. There was a little bit of pain but not too much.

    I had the tooling guy at work do it on a mill/drill. I'd like to see either traditional lube grooves or smooth sides for powder coating, and no lighter than 124 grains.

    I wonder if there is a prosthetic she could wear that would take the pressure off of the ankle. Maybe something like this would work.

    There has been a lot of progress in the world of prosthetics in the last few years. If your wife does go ahead with amputation she will probably end up being much happier. This lady has two prosthetic legs. Prosthetic ankle.
