    I'd be curious ("Curious George: ;)) what method/tooling/grease you are using to make your ribbons? I experienced exactly the opposite of your challenge, as I squeeze out a ribbon just a bit shorter than the width of a piece of Cut-Rite Wax Paper...

    Scurrying to do a bit of cleaning/organizing (???) before hunting season, I pulled my Smith & Wesson Model 64-3 out of the safe last night. This morning, it looks as "not-so-new?" as it did last eve. NO major scratches, but there are a zillion...

    First, I agree with Outpost75's comments 100%! The can of Ballistol indicates a 10% Ballistol/90% water mix is good for removing corrosive ammo residue. My experience is to heat up a teapot of plain-Jane water, and fill a cup with a squirt of Dawn...

    One of my thoughts revolves about my general slowness to react. On more than one occasion -- e.g., while deer hunting -- a non-deer critter came into my view, and by the time I got firearm (handgun) up and ready, it was gone... Some raise that oft'...

    Some years back a colleague inherited his dad's firearms, and presented me three of them. One, an Astra .25acp "widow-maker", I never fired. BUT, the other two, 9-shot revolvers -- are the H&R 939 (1969 made) and 949 (made in 1978). Complete with...
