    georgerkahn started a thread EDC: Knife? in Our Town
    Last week, a dad went to a public school (11 miles down the road) to pick up his child and (a GOOD policy) had to provide photo i.d. to ascertain he was on "the list" of OK people to pick up children after school. Un-zipping his jacket and reaching...

    I share your frustration! I, too, came up with similar query re new cartridges and powders -- but lack of availability of the standards I have, for years, employed. The real challenge to me is -- over 45 years or so -- using chronographs, ladder...

    georgerkahn replied to a thread Tinnitus in Our Town
    So sad -- I am also a tinnitus victim -- one of the major purported causes is exposure to *LOUD* sounds. For me it was a double-whammer, as I played in a band with my piano centred between the electric guitar to my left, and the drum-set to my...

    I have M1 Garands, and to me "the only!" calibre is .30-'06. :) Somehow, I have it stuck in my craw that any/all "genuine" M1 Garands -- like ALL employed during WWII -- were/are in this calibre. I will add a note you may wish to file away: To...

    I am also a member of the "-0,10" club" with a slight (?) twist. It takes a few minutes longer but I use a set of vernier's to check each case's length. Finding the shortest, assuming it is in this minus-.010 range -- I trim this one (if needed)...

    I had a leaky Air Arms T200 (PCP) and shipped it to Pyramid Air for repair. They did a stellar job; I was most pleased. (Sadly, though, a 2nd complaint I had, albeit a minor cosmetic one was ignored). Anyhoos -- from both the quick turnabout time...

    Thanks! I (hope to :)) learn sum-thin' new every day! I had heard of primers which do not send lead-styph??? in the air, etc. Probably for indoor range (e.g., LEO qualification) use, non-toxic primers DO make a lot of good sense! I was thinking...

    When I was a kid a local mom/pop store sold loaded -- roughly .30-'06 size and shape -- cartridges made of milk chocolate. (In retrospect, I do wonder if they used a real bullet mould?) Anyhoo -- the case was dark chocolate with the "bullet" tip...

    I concur with post #3 -- suggesting rubber or wax -- primer only, no powder -- was used on these. I got into shooting .44 and .45 wax bullets a few years back -- TONS of fun; really cheap so to do; and not loud enough to rile neighbors... However,...
