    Awww man! This is flipping me out. I can just see walking into one of our local dispensaries and asking to buy a matchbox. If the kid don't get it or never heard of it? Fine then, can I get a brick? Murphy

    Thanks Ric! Who knows? Maybe if enough of them get tired of having to talk to customers, they may bring back actual people answering the phone. Murphy

    I remember thinking how neat it was when automated answering machines started. Then it dawned on me, they put untold thousands of people out of jobs. Step two, when some companies realized a lot of their calls a live person would need to be...

    Sad to see him go. I had read recently he was in failing health. I think it would serve a lot of good if kids today had a role model like Johnny to watch instead of holding a phone in their hand or some video game console control. Murphy

    Murphy replied to a thread $ primers in Our Town
    I feel for those who got caught short handed on supplies during this shortage, regardless of how or why. I was in one of my local shops this past week and the owner was on the phone talking about reloading to a friend. His friend was as...

    I've got a blued model 15 and a stainless 744 that wouldn't even consider parting ways with for anything less than about $5k. If I ever had to liquidate my firearm collection, these would definitely be the very last 2 to go and I would be extremely...

    I'm 67 years old now, I can't remember when a pocket knife became part of my daily attire. I grew up in Oklahoma City, they didn't do the school lockdown thing over a pen knife, etc. back in those days. So it's really hard to say just how long I've...

    Brother, I feel your pain. That joker that wrote Murphy's Law must have used Murphy as a pen name. He sure didn't make any exemptions for folks with the same last name! Murphy

    .22 centerfires utilizing 55 grain bullets have been legal for deer for 20 years or more in Oklahoma. For 90% plus of the deer taken in Oklahoma, a 220 Swift would have worked just fine. Murphy

    Seems I live in the only county in Oklahoma showing multiple broods (far S.E. corner of the state). I've seen them come an go over the decades. I recall as far back as the late 50's and early 60's seeing them all over Oklahoma City when I lived...

    It’s based off the style of the Cabine Tree tester. It’s made from basic 3/4”x2” steel stock and a harbor freight dial indicator. A 1/2” bolt holds the spring I found at a local hdwe store. The hand wheel was turned from aluminum as was the threaded...
