    1hole replied to a thread How did they do that in Our Town
    The term "Texas heart shot" was joke and had no definitive birthday. It has never been suggested as a good shot placement. First time I heard of it was back the 60s when a popular hunting magazine writer was spoofing a buddy for taking a long...

    Both ignorance and stupidity are potentially lethal. Not knowing stuff is normal ignorance and can be easily fixed by education but nothing can fix stupidity. Of the four serious tree stand accidents I know anything about, common stupidity has...

    Nice deer, cool Cheri. I get a bit amused when young guys argue about which premium bullets (like Nosler or Barnes, etc.) is "best" for deer. Fact is, any game bullets work well for mid-range calibers because deer are NOT hard to kill IF we hit...

    1hole replied to a thread My son disowned me in Our Town
    The last few decades of decay has been astonishing. Some of our children's contempt for our country no doubt is our "fault" (we parents and grandparents) but, bottomline, our failures have been little worse than our own parents. Fact is, we...

    Just a thought about God's chosen seat of earthly government vs. Satan's; it seems clear that God has chosen Jerusalem and Satan has chosen Pergamum, not Jerusalem. (Rev. 2:12)

    It can be amusing to read people praising their very old single stage presses for longevity as if it's an unusually good tool. I'm sure they are honest and have excellent press life but that's not exceptional; it's the norm. I've seen a lot of...

    Where we are born is in God's hands. Thus, being "from" anywhere except South America is an unfortunant event that falls on most of humanity. Individually, it simply can't be helped but it need not be a serious handicap in anyone's life. ...

    Not really. I obviously haven't personally laid hands on every model and brand of press made over the last 50+ years but I've reloaded with and micrometer tested for springing on as many conventional presses as I could get my hands on; I've not...

    The 1861-65 sectional fight wasn't a "civil" war (but our 1776 Revolution against England was). Civil wars are when a mixture of a country's citizens seek to seize control of a country's central government and push the others out. Revolutions are...

    Sadly, there ain't no cure. Like Covid 19, they're everywhere. I'm a native of northwest Florida. I gave my home state to the rising masses of arrogant Damp Yankees (hereinafter, the D.Y.s) in 1968 but they have increasingly followed me to the...

    There are several turners available and each is a bit unique so it might matter. The biggest user difference between them is which method you prefer. Best I can tell, all of them will work fine if used correctly but then nothing ever works very...

    It's not a "north/south" thing at all. Some of the nicest people I know are "nawtheners." And even they despise pushy, arrogant, obnoxious, loud and foul-mouthed damp yankees.

    I've necked down and reformed a lot of old .30-06 military 1940-46 brass using a lot of different brand dies for a lot of years. None of my "problems" were about the die brand, it's ALL been due to how far down the cases had to move per step; I've...

    We have some good thoughts on honest prayer here. I've never spoken a prayer that didn't get answered. Sometimes it's "Yes!", sometimes it's "No", sometimes it's "Not yet." I see my part of the praying job as presenting thanks for the many...

    I am not "old." Yet ... maybe next year? But, I think we all may rightly be called Geezers when we reach a maturity where childish people's prophan tantrums don't mean anything at all to us. I'm a born and raised southern boy, now living in the...

    How much die change is "small"? IMHO, small die adjustments require a lot less visible change than many people seem to think. Our dies are threaded 7/8" in diameter x 14 threads per inch. That means dies change some 71 thousants of an inch...

    That's exactly what it means and cases don't have to be welded into the chamber to be "sticky". Any case that doesn't extract easily, i.e., requires uncommon effort, is sticky and sticky isn't good. The way it works is cases expand when fired...
