    Our cats have an automatic watering bowl. Basically a clear half gallon jug that sits on top and lets water into the bowl when the level gets low enough. When that happens, it makes a glug glug sound. Yesterday I was sitting in the office and I...

    I have rebuilt most of our home from the ground up. The wiring is completely safe, it just needs to be dressed up to look pretty enough to bypass a code inspection. I have an EET and have worked in electronics and industrial automation for decades....

    We own our house. It is difficult to get homeowners insurance where we live and I am in the middle of rewiring.

    I am not holding out much hope ATM... I'll have to bite the bullet and pick up another non 1911 45ACP. If this one is ever recovered, I'll have one to give to my son.

    Back in Illinois, the son of a friend had his bike stolen. They caught the thief within a couple of hours. The DA declined to prosecute. My friend called the DA about it and got the run around... Cost of bike... Young kid... My friend told him that...

    @contender1 Sorry to make you panic. Mittens is doing great. Still full of energy enough to keep us awake most nights. They have some video of the thief. ...

    Yeah... Been planning on loading .452 230 grain boolits. But last night, the one time I accidentally left my brand new 45ACP handgun in my truck, someone came down the road and broke into multiple cars. And took my newest 45... No reason to cast...

    Once someone stole all of my CDs from my car. They were all Christian rock bands. I hope that made a difference in their lives. And I have no homeowners insurance so I get to eat the whole thing. If they ever catch the person, I told my wife...

    They have some video and a LOT of leads. I told the officer that if they find the guy, I'd give him as much beer as they wanted to drop off the perp at my house for 20 minutes. He chuckled as they hear that a lot.

    So... Last night was a hectic night when I got home from a business meeting at a brewery where I do work on a 1099. I had an armload to get into the house forgot that I had a pistol in the console. Last night, of all nights, someone broke into cars...

    After closing the range this last Tuesday, my son and I walked the berms scrounging up bullets. We ended up with about 32# of bullets after 30 minutes of not too much effort. Now, I only have a small Lee melting pot but this was enough lead where I...

    bakerjw replied to a thread No more books in Our Town
    I've had Kindle readers since they were released. In fact, I bought my first one and sold it several months later for what I'd paid for it. It is so easy to use that it is not funny and I rarely buy books from Amazon.

    What I meant was that the rifling was all the way around the copper bullet. My wife's step dad saw it and said that it was not a bullet but I pointed out the rifling all the way around it.

    So, I was lead scrounging the range last night with my son. We scarfed up about 32# of bullets in a half hour. In cleaning the dirt off today, I picked out some interesting examples of bullets. Several were powder coated or painted. There...

    I took a picture and my wife said... "I know where that's getting posted." I brought the scrap in and she came over and started rolling on it. Weirdest thing.

    After my shift as an RSO at our range yesterday, my son and I walked out to the berms to look for bullets. By hand, we picked up 32# of bullets in 30 minutes or so. I don't cast a lot yet but it gives me something to work with as I progress forward....
