    First time I saw that, I was a young man. Thought it was a wonderful story about a great American hero. Gary Cooper gave a fantastic performance IMHO. Young American, who answers the call, not necessarily in agreement with it all, but sucks it up...

    Don't have all the answers. Not sure how long they were in use. A guess is that they were in use most of the 1800's. Made to dispense a small amount of shot for the poor folks to go try to put food on the table. Maybe trade some pelts for the...

    I'll throw this up, don't have a lot of expectations, as it is heavy and bulky, and shipping is kinda prohibitive, in size, weight, and bulk. Best option is FTF, within 200 miles of Orange, Tx. Its a nice piece, for someone so inclined. Also, a...

    I think I can last a lifetime with what I have. 2 milk crates, one WW, one soft. Soft is COWW + known soft. Plus another 100+ lbs. of soft lead pipe or old stuff from Dad. Oh, yeah, lots of other alloy, like pewter, monotype and solder.

    Is yours the Model 41? I have one, with a little round knob to cock it. I can spend all day at the range with that little gun, some targets and a couple of boxes of ammo.

    Sorry to hear. We get 10 inches in June, usually. We got more at my house last month. Doing even more this month. May get a respite next week, but not betting on it.

    You can also make faux strawberry jam with figs and strawberry jello. Mom made plenty a batch and I have also. Tastes and looks pretty dang close. https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/228524/strawberry-fig-preserves/
