    Experience is a wonderful thing - It lets you recognize a mistake, when you make it again.

    I am just finishing the final gun.
    The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.

    Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!

    Buy the company, keep me employed. I'm crippled up enough, I have no idea how I'm going to make a living. Can only be on my feet two hours at the most before the pain gets too bad.

    Sorry to hear that waksupi, i know several old loggers on the Wa coast that really struggled when the big Companies started to fold, its all they knew, tough on them ole boys in this computer ran world we live in today. I always thought an outfit like Buffalo Arms would be really neat to work for, but as much as i have been in that place the last 2 years or so I'm not so sure it would be? Nothing against the Co whatsoever, just not sure i could do it with my lack of computer skills.

    Sorry to hear that your employment is tenuous at best. Can gun building be done sitting? Getting old and worn out sucks!

    Can, and will continue building, just going to take longer.
