    I sure hope castboolits hosting provider is 2A friendly

    They're starting to silence the 2A crowd. Don't think this place isn't on the list to be shut down.

    You can read all the stuff online, in the magazines and in books and buy into the hypothesis but if you don't actually load up and test them then you know nothing until you do.

    Save all the information you think you need.

    All reloaders should have at least 1 or 2 good reloading books.

    We reloaded before the age of computers and the internet, we can keep doing it even if they shut them down.

    It will just be harder to get new information nd for new reloaders to get started.

    What are the chances they will also try to shut down on-line retailers like Midway, Graf's, etc., etc.?

    I remember that being one of Bidens points from his website that he will end gun related online purchases as soon as he gets in and I'm sure more after that.

    I do believe this board owns its own server.
    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!

    Gentlemen we are in uncharted waters. I was worried about the Second Amendment but didn’t think that the First Amendment would be in danger. All those books like 1984, Animal Farm, Lord of the Flies, Atlas Shrugged that I read as fiction in my youth are now sounding like an accurate weather forecast.

    Many may remember a James Bond fun from a few years ago... Before the internet age... Still on the print and broadcast journalism period.

    The evil genius seeking world domination was the ceo of a large media corporation. He claimed that because he controlled what people heard, read or viewed as news, he could direct the affairs and policies of governments.

    Seems we are living that now.

    Over the many years of reloading I have compiled “in print” the BANGER’S BIBLE that contains many pages of custom loads and comments about all the cal’s I reload for. All the tricks of the trad I have encountered, Pity those that rely on electronic/on-line media for their load data!!!!!!!!!!

    Bring on the black-outs and such. I am ready!

    Towards the O.P.

    Bring it on,can't happen fast enough for me;

    What "they" don't realize,and personally don't think a lefty can ever be educated enough to grasp what I'm about to say is....

    The only reason alternate "sights and services" haven't been organized is there's been no need. Looking for gubment,or big brother to "fix" anything is how they got themselves in this position to begin with. So going,BACK to that entity looking for solutions to problems is just chasing their tail. The only reason we're still using 100+ y.o. ignition sources on small arms is because of this,no need to change. So when "they" shut down all 2A related discussion or practictioning,think for a moment..... in your perfect scenario,what exactly would you like to see? Free primers? 3D printed 1911 frames? Cast bullets that make JB's look stupid from a BR? Well,it's exactly these things that will start turning up.

    Not going politics because there's a sub forum for that. No,this is about how the American spirit...... yeah,the same spirit that brought the freakin world the industrial revolution,SPEAR HEADED by the firearms industry. What makes anyone believe there won't be MORE problems after the gubment,fixes all our ills? So,the further I/we can distance from these "leaners"* ,the better.

    *Leaner: someone who,leans on your racecar fender telling you how,he would build a car,if he had one.

    2nd def: an office worker who relys on others because he's out of his element on whatever we're designing.

    The info I need for reloading and such is in the several books I already own, so no, I do not need this forum for THAT, but I do need this forum for moral support and just general chit-chat. Kind of like down at the local coffee shop.

    Not 100% accurate. If the data is on a server, this forum can continue. While it might not be as easy to get to, it still would be. Worst case would be becoming an onion site.

    That problem Parlor and maybe AR15 ran into was their data was in the cloud that some else has control over.

    dunno.

    a server is nothing without the 'connection' to the internet.
    i have ran a forum from a pc at the house but the bandwidth requirements were great.
    even then, my internet service provider could have shut me off without a care.
    my forum would have kept on running just fine but no one would be able to 'reach' it.

    the software this forum runs on, vBulletin, is also a consideration.
    perhaps the next update will 'take care of' unacceptable content?
    vBulletin is not a 2A advocate.
    (no one here is calling for a boycott of this forum for some reason)


    the ability to do this goes back before the www.

    running a dial up bulletin board for decades, i had issues with the phone company a time or two.
    -you have 3 personal lines, are you using them for business, etc.-

    dunno, hope things calm down.
