    I knew a gunsmith that called all semi-automatic pistols females. There was no logic or reasoning to what they liked. I think the same applies to rifles.

    With that many rifles out there, is there any common conversion that can be made, like 22 lr or 22 mag.

    There is something amiss in the pictures. The picture in the chamber shows both Weaver tightening nuts on the right side of the action. The front scope mounting ring has the band screws on the same side as the tightening nut. But one picture shows...

    wv109323 replied to a thread Hot Sauce Business? in Our Town
    At some point,if the business grows you will not be able to raise the peppers yourself. You will need to be in the kitchen instead of in the garden. I am sure Heinz does not grow its tomatoes. Besides your supply will be seasonal and unavailable...

    Loaded ammo in a fire is not dangerous. But a firearm with a loaded round is another story.

    I think all the earth will be aware of Christ' promised return. It is described as with a shout and trumpet and all Christians rising from the grave. I don't think that will go unnoticed. As to Matthew 24 I think generation would better be...

    Remember God started with a perfect world in the Garden of Eden. It was through man's disobedience that brought on all the calamities to the earth. God determines perfection and when man acts less than perfect ,it is sin. Sin can be punished in this...

    Have you tried jacketed bullets? What are the results with them? What is your bore size? Some 9mm need .359 boolits. You may not be neck sizing the brass large enough and the cast boolit is being resized during seating. Factory dies many times...

    The off center hit is nothing to worry about. I have seen far worse on 1911 pistols where the barrel has been fit. The swipe mark is a little more concerning. It could be the breechface face where the firing pin protrudes or it could have been...

    Pressures are determined by electronic measuring devices. They can be referred to as transducers, elastometers or plastometers. Barrel steels actually stretch when a round is fired and then returns to it original size. The amount the material...

    A meniscus tear is repairable with orthroscopic surgery. Cortisone may help but it is temporary. Most times 3 shots is all a doctor will give you. If the cartridge is gone then a knee joint replacement will be needed. Cortisone will relieve the...

    The bottom weight may be coated steel. I can not tell from the picture. You can use a magnet or side cutters to tell. The weight will be slightly magnetic due to the heavy plastic coating. Or you can use the side cutters and cut on the very end of...

    People do not realize how little time they save or make up when in traffic. Driving at a constant pace is far better than cutting someone off and making them hit their brakes.

    I think the lead alloy is fine. Swagged bullets are nearly pure lead. Of course the bullet has to fit the bore. One problem you may run into is getting a well cast boolit with pure lead. You may need to add tin to get the best boolits out of the...
