    They would congregate in the bushes at my Grandfathers house, in the Spring, when they were migrating. There would be 500 of them, at least on many an evening. Made quite a mess on the sidewalk

    41 grains of TAC?? Didn't think the case would hold that much. Did you mean 31 grains of TAC??? My Grendel loves the 90gr Speer HP TNT with Benchmark. Right at 3000fps and groups under 1/2" (24" bbl) if I do my part

    Usually garlic and herb seasoning, but burgers take a seasoning just for burgers. I have a lot of different seasonings I use, but I figure seasonings are just a start in the process. I like my steaks/burgers well done, no pink. At one time at...

    I prefer 85/15 or 90/10 if I can find it. 95/5 is a bit too lean, unless I am making tacos or chili.

    I have had a few scoff at my boolits, till I show them the target I just shot. Smaller group than they shot. They get quiet quickly and go back to their bench.

    Some FFL's don't want to provide FFL's as they are afraid that someone might create a fake FFL using their number. If the FFL won't give you a copy, then ask for the first three numbers and the last five numbers so you can do an FFL EZ-Check and...

    I think once you received your draft notice, you were Army bound. My ex B.I.L enlisted in the Air Force one afternoon and his draft notice was in the mail when he got home. He did go into the A.F., although the Army really tried to get him.
