    P&P has the correct take on this IMO. It sucks to be one of those who either did not prepare or are new to reloading and caught short. They are more likely to feed the panic and buy whatever they find at higher prices. Some of those with...

    I recall seeing a video a few years back of a guy who had hooked up a Mickey Mouse set up with an electric motor on a Star and it worked very well. Found the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlPcBvGsDTY There was another item that made...

    i shoot my head a while back. Up here people are blinded into thinking rugers are some premium high end brand. I was in the gun shop and was suprised to see two 9mms. A lc9 with one mag for 500 bucks and a shield 9mm with 5 mags and a bag for 480....

    I had one refused because the local PO is small and did not have enough cash. Sounds like a lazy person or someone who does not like you. Next time wear a Biden hat and you will get your cash. Lol

    dverna replied to a thread Vacuum Packed Primers in Our Town
    If I was going to store them for decades, I would vacuum pack them. My concern is rust/tarnishing. I plan to do that for primers that will be put away for a long time in an unheated outbuilding. You cannot legally store more than 10k in...

    I will be the strange guy who disagrees with making ammunition that fits my pistol. I have very few pistol calibers I load for, but a lot of pistols. “Worst” is the .38 Spl. It needs to run in four revolvers...total of 20 chambers, and three...

    Ickisrulz replied to a thread 338 Win and 338 Win Mag in Our Town
    I am one of those weirdos that shoot nothing but cast from my 338 Win Mag. I am able to re-size only the neck on most reloadings. I have not cracked a case after many, many times reloading the cases. There is a re-sizing die that uses a collet...

    Everyone is in a different situation. If I were in my 70's, I'd get the vaccine. But I am not and won't do it. I had one of my son's doctors call the other day and ask if I'd like to schedule him for the shot. He's 16. I said no way. For him...

    dverna replied to a thread Log splitter questions in Our Town
    Most, it not all, tractor mounted splitters are going to be slow...check cycle times. They will have your tractor running at almost full throttle, so lots of noise. Like already posted, it ties up your tractor. I heat with wood and bought my...

    I used to Pooh-Pooh stuff like this. Easy to do when commercial products are easy to get, and not too expensive. I was lucky enough to prepare and build up a decent stockpile. Thus no "need". I believe the current situation is likely to...

    Good to hear that most of you guys are in good shape. I tried to warn people when rifle and pistol primers starting going nuts, to stock up on 209's when they were still in good supply and not too pricey. Some people need to learn the hard...
