    As a more general statement it is important to realize what the Bible is NOT. It is not a history text, it is not a sociology text, it is not a medical text book, it is not a study in cosmology. You can go on and on about this. What it is -...

    Best 22 cylinder protectors I've found are the yellow drywall hole expanders. Fit perfectly and that plastic will take three or four hits. I bought a box of either 50 or 100. Enough to last!

    I think you first have to plate with brass since the nickel won't adhere to steel?? This from advice not to use Hoppes or other brass dissolvers on nickel plated revolvers.

    I did not 'enter into an agreement with God' - He took me over and remade me. I went along for the ride - rowing against the flow too often. At the time it was overwhelming and for much of the time since it has been comforting. Except when I get...

    There are the same three components to many sins, including adultery, obesity, drug/EOTH abuse, etc. We are all biological sinners - driven to it by our biology. It is our responsibility to choose God over biology.

    Great looking rig. Mexican leather can be very good to very iffy. Some of the tanning process used create a much weaker leather. For a holster it should not be an issue. For saddles and harnesses it is something to be aware of.

    Another misunderstanding of Scripture. It does not say the we should not judge, it says we need to be careful when we do judge. In fact the Scripture tells me in Timothy that I have a responsibility to come alongside a brother who is in sin the...

    Tim, it is. "Put no other God before me" - pride puts me before God and makes an idol of me. That's why I posted that God himself opposes me when I'm proud. That is one of his infinite ways of loving me.

    Leather dye will work, assuming the ramrod isn't too oily. I use ferric nitrate on new rods to darken them. You would do yourself a favor to find a split hickory ramrod if you want it to last.

    Well covered! I agree, the lock is the key. I have one rifle I kept track of, and on the first flint got 176 shots from it before it got too short to use in that particular rifle any more. If the lock geometry is correct, they last a long time. You...

    I'm starting to think that color is from the WD40. That's the color it turns when it oxidizes a bit. With that little bit of discoloration showing, I wouldn't even worry about it.
