    richhodg66 replied to a thread Dead rabbit in Our Town
    Well, I wasn't about to touch it. I went out of town for an overnight and when I got back, not a sign of it, so most likely a coyote found it and carried it off. We actually got enough rain this evening to do some good, it was crazy dry and...

    I'm not sure heroin addicts are that easy to spot for the casual observer. I knew a guy that was a junkie and functioned just fine. For a couple years I had no clue. Eventually, he developed a condition where his immune system attacked his...

    This thread popping up from the distant past is only a reminder that I am going on 20-25 (maybe 30) years of owning one and having never fired it. I get it out to sell and then realize it kinda feels like a M-14 in my hands and put it back in the...

    According to Hornady Manual, the Whelen Max COL is 0.2 longer so that may or may not be an issue for your plans. I love the Type 38/99 palm safety.

    I once used a RCBS(?) tool like that to disassemble 1200 44 Mags and about 800 38s once one of one of the 44mags loaded that day took the top strap and top half of the cylinder off. Took a lot longer to disassemble than to load. That was one...

    That's the right way to do it. Also notice the notch on the front of the cock. If you guns don't have that, get out a file or Dremel and do it. It directs fragments away from the eyes, and helps split the fired cap for easier removal.

    It's good stuff for black powder shooting. We have an early muzzle loader season in September and there have been times Bore Butter is pretty much a liquid when it gets warm. Perhaps mixing it with some wax might firm it up some.

    Interesting. Why do they shoot cormorants? Are they harmful in some way? I guess I don't know much about them.

    I just picked up a set of 308x1.5" RCBS dies on E-bay for $35 with shipping. I'm starting to gravitate towards small 30 caliber cartridges for most of my range shooting to go along with my 6.5 match rifles. Now I need to set some money away for...
