    LaPoint started a thread Old CCI primers in Our Town
    Does anyone have an idea how old these primers would be? I acquired them, second hand, at least 20 years ago. I got large and small rifle and pistol primer, about 1000 primers total. I've been using them without a failure yet. Thanks in advance...

    Is that a flexible strap with the 4 holes in it? If so could it be placed over the muzzle of a rifle barrel and strapped on? Could it be used to catch spent cleaning patches when they're pushed through from the chamber?

    LaPoint replied to a thread Full shelves in Our Town
    This past May we drove a car back from Winston Salem, NC via the Outer Banks. It was right during the time that Colonial Pipeline was hacked and held hostage. Although others were reporting gasoline shortages we never had any problems getting a...
