    I will somewhat disagree with "a box is a box" and does ot need to be replaced. I had a 1970's mobile home that was wired with aluminum wire and a fusebox. Not breakers. Occassionally many of the circuits would de-energize for no apparent reason. I...

    Legal question: If the NRA is uncharted in NY can the NYAG still go after the assets of the NRA ? Does bankruptcy now protect the assets when the money was supposedly misused?

    I believe that we and all gun related sites are high on the list. I believe that for the socialist to carry out their agenda they will need to take the guns away from all Americans. In matter of fact I think their current actions are to provoke...

    Usually there is a breed specific rescue group. I would search the net for one for Airedales. People there know the breed and many are looking to adopt.

    I think the least expensive way to go is a gas generator of around 3500 watts. They are around $450. That size generator should run any house sized submersible pump up to 4hp. A pump should be around 3-400 bucks. You would need wire and plastic...

    This is an early 1911 barrel as said. The "H" in this case is not for High Standard. High Standard did make 1911a1 barrels during WW2 and they were marked "HS" on the barrel feet. Go to 1911forum and ask under the Vintage or GI section. They will...

    It adds weight to the front of the gun, if you like weight. A problem it causes is that the spring wire can get caught between the spring cap and the rod. This can cause a malfunction and may not allow the slide its full travel forward. I had a...

    wv109323 replied to a thread What Is a Squib Load? in Our Town
    In NRA precision pistol a squibb is a bullet that does not leave the barrel. It almost always is a round that has no powder just a primer. The bullet usually travels some length down the barrel, but I have seen bullets stop between the cylinder and...

    Borrowing a line from a pathologist concerning autopsies , It is not what you start with but where it ends up. I also read that one shot to the abdomen or head stops about 95% of all attacks regardless of caliber. Practice and shot placement

    I did not realize Re 7 was a double base powder. I have never used it. I do not like WW296 due to the recommendation of not reducing powder weight in pistol cartridges. Thanks for pointing that out.

    You did not say what rifle but the most common is the AR-15 platform. If so, that bullet will not work according to my calculations. The maximum cartridge length to fit in a AR-15 magazine is 2.260". The bullet you suggested is 1.407" long. From the...

    How is accuracy? Do you have fliers? I had a No. 1 in 25-06 and could never get it to group. One or 2 rounds of 5 were way out of the group. I traded it off for a .308 bolt rifle. In looking at some rounds after I got rid of the rifle I think...

    I have read that only about 5-7% of the population was involved in the American Revolutionary War. There were many supporters but few actually got involved. Just sayin.

    I have several cans of powder from the 1970's. All of it is good. If properly stored I think powder is good for a lifetime. The only powder I have read about ,that had problems with time is some WW2 powder that was not properly washed. I believe...

    My guess is a Dan Wesson barrel nut tightening/removing. I never seen one like this but the spanner measures about right for my .357 DW wrench. The one I have is a T handle. The later barrels used a spanner instead of a star ahaped nut. It may be...
