    I love going to my post office. Not because it's convenient, not because I can buy stamps and money orders there. I love mine, because the post mistress has bodacious breastial development that is always a treat to see, especially in the summer time.

    9's work for lots of stuff if you have the draw dies. you can pull it all the way down to 30 caliber rifle jackets but it's something like a 5-6 step draw. they make 40 cal bullets in 1-2 steps and no drama. I use the 40 brass to make 44 mag...

    Bill. those 311 and 312's are starting to be sought after if they are in good workable shape. the very early 312's are actually very nice guns and were rebranded higher end 'plain janes'
