    We actually went to Sportsman Ski Haus to buy the grandkids a Fiberglas Bow and Arrows for $6.00 each, and then on to Cabellas where the wife picked up a great sale on Down Jacket and Wool watch cap for one of the sons, to be mailed as a Christmas...

    I cleaned up the 2nd reloading center in the guest room today (primary is in the "Reloading Shed" outside). I do not heat the reloading shed so as deep winter comes in I go to the guest room for loading. My wife was also in cleaning room and...

    Yes Camp Lejuene has multiple contamination sites that have been highly publicized off and on over the last 15 years particularly. The same applies for Cherry Point where the NARF (Naval Air Rework Facility) had established multiple dumps for heavy...

    Mr_Sheesh: I use 22LR for jackets on 70, 75, and 80 grain .224's. These all result in an exposed lead nose of various sizes. I have a lead nose forming die; but do not always use it - instead sometimes just using the bullet as swaged in the nose...

    I do not wear the hats or shirts; but have a closet full from friends and family who have given various military Organization hats/shirts to me over the years. Figure I'll have the grandsons wearing them for years to come - I give them a new one...

    MUSTANG replied to a thread AR generational gap in Factory Rifles
    Got to thinking; I do have an affinity for my AR after all: We only shoot a few dozen rounds a year, but enjoy it. Can't wait till the Grandsons get to be about 12 or 13 and let them have a go at it. I remember a friend of mine when we were...

    Start with the Garand as they are more difficult to get at times (in shooters hands/safe like mine and they are not letting go of them). As you have all ready stated, your set up for the 30-06 cartridge now. Then as cash is available pick up an...

    MUSTANG replied to a thread AR generational gap in Factory Rifles
    Although we (my wife's) own a Colt AR-15, my opinion can be summed up in one word "TWANG". That buffer spring noise just irritates the heck out of me, from the first time in Boot Camp when I shot a Vietnam worn out M16A1 that rattled like the old...

    At the range I at times will collect boxes, trays, etc... to hold reloaded rifle and pistol rounds. Found this one last week. Someone must have cleaned out the back of the closet because there were a lot of older boxes; this one being the oldest. ...
