    waksupi replied to a thread Wife-nus Inter-upts in Our Town
    I can relate to that. Guys would want to come to my shop and watch me build guns. I would tell them, nope, no one in my shop while I'm working. I learned the hard way when I had the distraction, sure as hell I would screw us some simple procedure.

    Thank you for all your time and effort HRfunk. Hopefully, it's been an eye opener for some, and a lesson to others. Practice, practice, and practice some more when you can. The last thing any officer hopes to do, is resort to their sidearm and...

    waksupi replied to a thread Facebook bans in Our Town
    I got banned for about ten minutes this morning. Called BS on them, and they reinstated me. It's about the only reasonable way to keep in touch with friends and family for me. Over the years, I have met and made friends from all over the world,...

    Call BATF is you have questions. I've shipped several hundred guns. It cost around $60-75 insured through USPS. The only guns I had damaged were through UPS.

    I love the green machines even though I donít have one (yet). I also love the big truck brake drum as the base for your stand. Great idea!

    Murphy replied to a thread Working at Amazon in Our Town
    Going by what's been posted so far, it sounds like Amazon would be a good place to avoid working for. Sure, $15 sounds good and for a younger person who's not spent much time in the work force, it may even seem fantastic. It never hurts to give...

    I experimented with corn meal years ago. I found many times it would leave a hard cake in the shoulder area of bottle necked cartridges, and if not removed, would increase pressures.

    The Grand Ole' 38 Special. It's been with us for 123 year's now (first produced in 1898). That speaks for itself when one thinks about it. What speaks even louder as I sit here and think about it, is how many handguns and rifles have been...

    It's surprising how many neglect lubing the locking lugs. That is the main cause for developing head space issues.
