    don't bother. When they're VOX spoofing they use your area code, the next 3 digits of your locality and then 4 random numbers. That way it looks like someone from your town is calling you. Since the number you're blocking is entirely fictitious...

    that wood is beautiful. I always liked the svelte lines of the featherweight. I bought mine in Barstow CA in 1988. It's been my go to rifle since then, still equipped with a glossy 4X leupold.

    Murphy replied to a thread Speer 38 Target in Vintage Ammo
    I have somewhere between 150-200 of them. I've slowly picked them up over the years here on the S&S board. Back in the late 70's I had a box of 50 Cases & Bullets. They're quiet handy and accurate enough for me up to 15' to 20' feet. I figure to...

    I picked up a Model 510 Target Master about 5-6 years back. It was your typical pawn shop find. Not in great shape, not in rough shape either. Just a decent old Remington. I broke it down and gave it a good cleaning, took a brick of Federals out and...

    That sir, is exactly why I got into casting in the mid 1980's. Skeeter Skeltons promotion of the Lyman #358156 and Elmer Keiths #429421. I checked pretty much every popular gun magazine and Shotgun News looking for them. No luck on the Thompson gas...

    My way to look at is do I have primers bullets and powder. 100lbs of powder and 1000 primers the math making rounds won't match. My handicap right now is primers I run out well before i run out of bullets or powder.
