    1) The docs thought that the MRI could heat the bullet metal and cause some issues. I was far enough away from the MRI area but they did a series of XRays to make sure. 2) I shot myself with an UNLOADED Ruger RST4 - an old one before they installed...

    FISH4BUGS replied to a thread Mri in Our Town
    I did one for my back. The problem was that they were freaked out because I still carry a bullet in my leg and they were concerned that the MRI could heat up the bullet and cause me problems. It all turned out fine. The hardest part was not...

    FISH4BUGS replied to a thread Lyman#2 in Lead and Lead Alloys
    My sentiments exactly. I learned some 40+ years ago that I can duplicate the Lyman #2 with 5lbs ww to 1lb lino. That is exactly how I do the alloy - right in the pot on the fly. It has worked perfectly for me. I couldn't tell you what the % of...

    Never had to worry - we have 2 freezers and two refrigerators with freezers. Why? For the 125+ pounds of organic burger and the 36 chickens we get from our local farms every year - not to mention the veggies from our 35x25 garden! All protected by...

    I think I may have won the lottery 15 years or so ago. At that time there were rumblings about doing away with lead wheel weights.....nothing serious, but the tree huggers were pushing for the ban. A friend and fellow racquetball player/shooter...
