    To "add" to stanford's post, when paying for anything/everything on line, NEVER EVER use a Debit card!!! Using a credit card -- I've been there ;) -- frauds and scams are generally covered (including a purchase I made -- so statement indicated --...

    Just for the record ;) -- I placed an order with MidwayUSA on line on Saturday 14 May 2022 -- this, after dinner (maybe 7:30PM EDT?) and wife and I went shopping this morning (20 May 2022) and -- guess what -- the package from MidwayUSA was on my...

    I have two Shikari's in my safe: a .44 Rem Mag Model 155 (s/n AH213,xxx -- made in 1971) and a .45-70 Model 155 (s/n AJ267,xxx -- made in 1972) and while they "may" handle pressures, I know I have only fired my cast bullets with mild factory loading...

    georgerkahn replied to a thread Planting tomatoes in Our Town
    One of my after-the-fact thoughts -- re the no-freeze success I had -- was that the huge cans let ground temp temper ambient air and snow. I reckoned snow was in the 32*F/0*C range and the warmer ground -- given the large trash can size -- might...

    You are very kind! I concur with the sentiment that a pound or two more would surely not be a deterrent re recoil/kick control. When I shoot mine, I "confess" that I wear a vest with a recoil pad in it -- right after I purchased it I put a full...

    I have what I thought was the most gorgeous of .45-70s -- my 2005 manufactured Marlin 1895CB Classic Octagon Barrel rifle S/n 95,207,xxx. After seeing yours -- I was totally wrong! Your Henry looks gorgeous, and in comparison with the Marlin -- to...

    In not-sunny-warm-dry times (RARE!) I use a Frankfort electric brass dryer. I put in an outboard switch for heat, as I do not need/use it all the time. On the rare sunny warm days, I place the brass on an aluminum tray and set it in full sun, tray...

    In a similar paradigm a few years back I took galvanized trash cans and put them upside down over my tomato plants. with a brick or rock atop each to guarantee good ground contact. . I had three smaller (20 gal?) cans (I use for wood ashes from...

    Perhaps of value to newbies as well as, say, more seasoned casters, the folks at Wolfe Publishing put out a video titled, Casting 101. Over an hour in length it does go into a bit of detail. Note: I have no association with them other than being a...

    I've buried books of matches with my green pepper plants and sprayed foliage with Epson Salts, but quite frankly never heard of employing the stuff on tomatoes. Due to my bum leg I do just nine plants -- three each Sungold cherry; three Amish...

    For what it is worth, I'm a bit OCD, and spray my mould first with G96. I used to store them long-time with a cast bullet in each cavity, but too many sages (bion, I do "listen" on (rare ;)) occasion) suggested this being of no benefit. I then put...

    Some folks go to Los Vegas; some drive their vehicles like maniacs; some (sorry here) even get married -- ALL a "gamble" As is, even, buying factory ammunition and walking outdoors where, say, a rivet came off a jet plane flying at 32,000 feet and...

    Thank you, James (TNsailorman) for correcting my vision-goof. Those 74-year old peepers plus an el cheapo monitor may be my (lame -- sorry) excuses for seeing the number 8 as the letter S. Again, my sincere apologies to Kevinakaq for my not...

    Regardless of its history ("if rifles could talk...") you have purchased a really gorgeous firearm! If I read the price tag correctly -- $1,300.00 USD -- you paid more than a fair price for it. I recently ('bout a year back) saw a listing of a...

    I had, and gave away about 40 years back an Oehler -- do not recall the model number -- which used vacuum tubes with little lit dots at each tube's top. The fellows at range called them "Nixie Tubes." One shot through two spaced pieces of paper...

    TWO notes re unsolicited calls: 1st, an article a short time back in the N Y Times kind of opened my eyes to the calls we'd get with our area code and a local NNX appearing, to -- when picked up -- there'd be nothing at caller's end. Huh? It...

    I acquired a garage sale mould years back with similar gouging. Bion (actually, easy for me :)) I made it worse! "How?" By not being smart enough to maintain perfect planeness and keeping all square. I ended up with a relatively flat end result,...
