    I have searched rather broadly for a good piece of custom wood to sporterize a No. 4 Mk I Enfield I have. Anyone know of a source for good wood for this model? I think it was American Gunstocks in Cal. that used to cut some fine looking stocks for...

    IMO, the best repair job on aluminum is to have it Ceracoated. You can even pick a color if you're so inclined. It adheres better and protects the finish and surface MUCH better than anything else available. But if you want it to look "original,"...

    Evangelists are great WHEN THEY KNOW AND UNDERSTAND AND CAN INTERPRET THE BIBLE, AND EXPLAIN ITS MEANINGS, AND INTERRELATE ALL ITS PROVISIONS INTO A UNIFIED WHOLE, SO THAT ANYONE CAN UNDERSTAND IT. But those are few and far between. A common...

    Slug, your thinking is very narrow and constrained. God made man to have a will of his own. It seems very logical that a true God would not want mere mechanical expressions of worship and praise, but the genuine thing that can emanate ONLY from...

    Lord, thank you for all the many blessings you have bestowed upon all of us. They outnumber the stars in the sky, and we are usually only aware of the ones we've prayed for. Help us to understand just how amazingly generous and loving You really...

    The best summation of the conflict that goes on within most of us (believers) again and again, until we mature and REALLY give our lives to Christ. He's always in control, and it takes a while for most of us to learn to accept that. We like to...

    Wayne is right. Our faith is weak, generally, and we have a very hard time accepting His grace, and especially in really expecting a cure for the big things in our lives. But we MUST keep trying, and repeatedly so. It's amazing, but we actually...

    Our church records every service and puts them on Youtube, so we can watch them repeatedly if desired, and whenever we can get the time to watch. It's working out very well so far. And no, it's not quite the same, but when the mind and spirit are...

    Evangelism was indeed derived from the Great Commission, but more than that, it derives from the necessity of getting all to know the lord. Some, like Slug, are so deeply steeped in nihlistic cynicism that they are incapable of receiving the light....

    The Bible never addressed the issue of extraterrestrial life, so if it exists, I can only conclude that the same God who created the rest of the universe also created them. Confirming extraterrestrial life wouldn't have the least effect on my...

    I'm with Ick on this matter. Sometimes, if not regularly, we read the Bible with a very limited perspective. That can often lead us to conclude erroneously, and this, I believe, is one of those times. God is perfect. Therefore, He CANNOT...

    Thanks, Wayne. You're right. Fear is insidious and terribly destructive. That's one of the great values of Christ's love and His promises. If we accept His offer fully, we have nothing left to fear. Nothing, not even death, can harm us. At...

    H335 and AA2230 are pretty close in burn rate. BL-C(2) is quite a bit slower. One jug of powder on the reloading bench at a time is sound advice.
