    I read somewhere that these wiped joints are mostly tin, and they should be separated, using a small torch, keeping the heat low to melt the joint and not the lead pipe. I recently came across some lead pipe with joints and wasn't difficult to melt...

    I, too, use hearing aids, but not when shooting. I have two Howard Leights Impact Sports muffs, and I have no problems hearing range commands, or folks speaking 20 ft away.

    Breakfast burrito sounds good. I have an omelet, with diced onions, with a pinch of basil, and shredded cheese, sometimes cheddar, or a blend of asiago, parmesan and romano, sometimes I use shredded Kerrygold Dubliner. Pork sausage, and a slice of...

    I have one, but it's only 8 oz net weight. Can't recall where I got it. Only 2.5 oz of powder left.
