    Sometimes moving on is the best, if you just cannot be around someone's 'stuff' any more. My older rescue cat has one heck of a bone to pick with me, should I go AWOL (Hospital trips, 8-9 days sometimes, I get chewed out BADLY once I return! Then...

    If pressure is a problem i.e. with rock salt loads, make them BP rounds, then clean the gun well afterwards. Pressure won't be an issue.

    Some folks wire in LED lighting using DC power, specifically because no city permits are needed, in many areas, for low voltage circuits - And, no electrician expenses. Friend is doing a "tiny house" that way for himself.

    In 7mm Rem Mag I like H4831, compressed loads, as I figure it's slow enough to be pretty easy on the rifle. Hammering a firearm - just because you CAN - seems a bad idea to me, as if it should go KABOOM, it's your face, hands, eyes, and other...

    Regenerative Braking means you use the motors as generators, to slow the vehicle down, you may retrieve SOME of the power from doing that, in regular brakes you just convert the power to heat (and wear on the brake pads...) You don't regenerative...

    You could ask local battery shops if they could use the Sulphuric, maybe yes, maybe no. The6y'd know how to dispose of it for sure.

    Actually there is a way to "Buy" proficiency; Take courses, if needed; Get a BUNCH of ammo, and then shoot that firearm till you reach proficiency :) It's AKA earning that proficiency.

    HD I like a 12 gauge, loud but effective; Back that up with a 1911. (Or better yet, don't have a HD problem, but IDK how to arrange that yet.) This is for a fun toy, but in a pinch 300BO would do for HD of course!
