    Actually, the demonic slob had some 12 million killed in his death camps, and starved millions more to death in his POW camps. The oft mentioned 6 million were Jews.

    That's true but I never expected any employer to be my mommy/daddy. Employees are hired to accomplish tasks, not to play. Valid company complaints about the poor work ethic of many current self entitled employees are plentiful too. I've never...

    That's good information to be filed away and I'm sure we're all happy for you but most of us are not retired and we do need jobs. One thing to remember about lousy companies: A job isn't a military enlistment so we're not constrained by a...

    IF any idiot liberal with a drugged out brain wants ME to "identify" any male as a female I'm gonna ask if the poor soul in question sits on a napkin each month or just rams a tampon home. No amount of loopy education is going to provide a rational...

    Not many have been made for decades, seems they don't sell well. I suspect most of the survivors are hiding out just west of Hendersonville, N.C. ;)

    General Flynn is an honorable man who was - in his mind - conversing with honorable men and said something in that relaxed conversation which was not a meaningful part of the discussion. The frustrated upper ranks of the FBI and DoJ wanted to crush...

    Glad your results have been so positive. Ref. the lab tests, from what I've read the tests are about 50% accurate. If so, that puts the science of the tests right up there with flipping a coin. Which is as good as I expect from the CDC and Dr.s...

    Understand you're a New Yorker and I'm not. But tell me HOW Trump could have possibly kept anything out of - or in - the rabidly 24/7, 365, five out of four years of anti-Trump "news"? The "news" has not only told us everything they knew but...

    Ditto. I believe the Rifleman and other magazines would inform us of the trials if handloads are an issue in self defense. I've been reading gun magazines since 1964. I've read hundreds of legal articles but, to the best of my memory, court...

    The best "primer catcher" I've ever seen is a little Lee Reloader press combined with a Lee Universal Depriming die; they easily remove and capture EVERY spent primer in the hollow bottom of the press. I drilled a 3/4" hole under the collection...

    I've been told by some learned men that such puzzling things in scripture usually refer to common stories within the Hebrew culture that illustrate a valid point they would understand just as we understand Aesop's Fables; that makes sense to me.

    The wonder of it all is that such topics as unicorns have no bearing on any Christian doctrines.

    Look again. The only thing that can produce your problem is something that slightly interferes with beam movement; something is binding the pivot shaft in the bearing cuts. The only things which can produce that effect in a clean Ohaus scale...

    I doubt that much of a bullets base ends up as bore leading. But, anything that can reduce the base temperature has to reduce the melting of a lead base. A thin coat of lube on a bullet base will boil away some of the firing flash heat and reduce...

    When the NRA/Alox lube was new in casting (and I was too) I went that way and have never looked back. It was then only available in pint size "paint cans", the thick lube had to be melted in a double boiler and poured into the lubrasizer. I got...

    We often don't get the real meaning of scripture because we don't know the full meaning of many of the old words like "believe." John 3:16 says those who "believe" in Jesus will be saved BUT that is NOT the simplistic "belief" we tend to think it...

    I've been reloading everything that goes BOOM since 1965. I've never had a "case gage" nor even looked at a book OAL, I just make ammo that fits and shoots well in MY guns. Seems you have achieved that goal. ???

    Well, to be fair, just flipping the Walker safety itself isn't going to cause an accident; it only happens if the trigger is actually pulled while the safety is engaged. THEN, if the sear connector does not properly slip back in place, the only...
