    Murphy replied to a thread I'm back! in Our Town
    Starting to think it's getting close to a new computer here also. I have an external hard drive with my last two PC's backed up on it. I'm reasonably sure I'll get another desktop. I've only had one laptop and while it was nice, I'm better suited to...

    Any handle will work fine. What we need is, a selection of wide bit blanks. I've ground every one of my Brownell bits over the years to fit various firearms. There is a sad lacking of wider bits, though. I've ended up with making a lot of my turn...

    I use electrical tape. Free floats the barrel at the same time! I still put release agent on the tape.

    AAA is the way to go. A single tow incident pays for your dues.

    A fire is at a friends property boundary up in the Yaak. I hope they can beat it back. There was a light rain this morning, less than 1/10" of an inch. All that will do is make the fire burn hotter.

    My method is to fire a full power load. Then find a bullet diameter that slides into the fired case with a little resistance. This will be the size that fits my throats the best. I size about 1/3-1/2 of the neck to hold them in place. You need to...

    Murphy replied to a thread Big League Gouging in Our Town
    Having seen a few shortages over the decades, I learned long ago to gather when the gathering is good. Much like dverna, it's not that often I run across something that needs shooting. Anything outside of that can be considered recreational...

    Murphy replied to a thread My Wife in Our Town
    It's gotten so bad in parts of Oklahoma (OKC to be specific), the thieves smile at the camera on the way out of the store, seriously. It's also hard to believe some big name stores, have security camera's that the photos from them are so grainy, it...

    I recently went through an ongoing pressure switch problem. Three plumbers had looked at it over the years, no solution. I'm on a shared well, and pumping uphill to the neighbors at about a 80' rise, 340' total from static water level in the well. ...

    Congratulations on your new adventure into cast bullets in a handgun. Even having done it for decades now, I still find it very rewarding. I've taken game with mine, shot competition with them as well. I got off to a rocky start with my first cast...

    Most of the old milsurp stuff had a lacquer coating. Can cause chamber buildup, and need cleaning.

    Has anyone done business with Bogg's lately? All of their web pages seem to be gone. I hope they are still doing their thing, they have saved me hundreds of dollars over the years.

    Check to see if you have someone in your area who makes batteries. They would most likely take it off your hands. I used sulfuric acid and muriactic acid in my shop for years. I always kept a large box of baking soda to dump on spills.

    Murphy replied to a thread Nickle cases in Our Town
    The only nickel cases I have are 38/357's. In my early days of reloading a case was a case. I didn't sort by head stamp. I'd load up several 100 rounds of blasting ammo and it all worked for my intended purposes. I separate the nickel from the brass...

    Living in far S.E. Oklahoma (not that far from Louisiana), I probably watched more news out of Shreveport than Tulsa or Oklahoma City. Gov. Edwin Edwards was a Jim Dandy no doubt. I was raised in a family with an uncle who spent 22 years in the...

    I haven't attended a gun show in probably 3 years now. I live in the far S.E. corner of Oklahoma, rural with a county seat of 7,000 population. For too many years now, the last shows I attended in my area were flea markets, not gun shows. That, and...
