    Go. Life is short and your time with your kids as kids is even shorter. Sell a gun you don't use, drive a cheap rental, stay in a crap motel, heck eat bologna sandwiches on the way. Some of my son's best stories are about when I did the best I...

    RogerDat replied to a thread Lloyd Smale? in Our Town
    Outrage both having it and promoting it seems to be popular on the internet. The more aggressive and angry posts or posts designed to cause anger seem to get the most traffic. Too bad it is that way but seems like it is. I doubt I have dealt...

    I'll take two. Will PM address and deal with payment info. I like the Cast Boolit ones from a prior order very much and two more will just make me more productive. Being able to fill a work table with molds at 10# each is great time saver. ...

    I have a couple of Kahr pistols, both are very nice although a bit dated when compared to today's high capacity micro-compacts.

    Yep BNE will make that supply a known alloy for ya. Does have a way he needs to have things set up when he gets it so his job isn't a PITA. Simple directions but making a big difference to him. A quick read of Babbitt in Wikipedia will show you...

    My vote is for the chip bedding for rodents and such from any pet or big box store with a pet department. I'm still using two printer paper boxes of shavings a friend gave me from his planer. Has lasted a few years and gone through a couple tons...

    I seldom buy high end whiskey for my own consumption. I was blessed to be able to appreciate and enjoy the taste of cheap whiskey. Bottle of Kesslers and a campfire is as good as it gets. Now I don't mind a bottle of the "good stuff" but never...

    thing about internet sales is if there are enough people wanting it in the entire country the price can go to the highest price the most desperate will pay. Like Gun Broker and primers. As long as there are people willing to pay $175 a thousand...

    Funny how things shake out over time. Thread from Feb that had people expecting Ukraine to be free for Putin's taking and that the US wouldn't be willing or able to do anything about it turns out to be far from what happened. Unlike Hitler...

    People mostly do what they want to do. If one partner decides to go along with a "decision" by the other such as no guns in the house then it usually means they were ok with it. Maybe not their own first choice or what they would do on their own...

    I know lead prices at scrap yards are up. Both to sell and to buy from those that will sell. Shot dripping looked entirely do-able. Just don't have the motivation myself. If I shot trap or skeet I would look into it. I do cast buck shot...

    Fishman replied to a thread Had to buy a tire in Our Town
    As a young man I used a lot of plugs on tires that should have been recycled, but it was all I had. None of the plugs ever failed, new leaks were always the culprit. I still use plugs as needed today, I have a kit and inflator in my nice expensive...

    Myself I like a 20# Lee melter. Not bottom pour. A Lyman Little Dipper ladle, and a decent thermometer. You will also want a hot plate to pre-heat molds, the solid top ones work best, if you get the coil type hotplate then set an old circular...

    Things have slowed down which isn't surprising. For a while MP couldn't get pins. The amount of disruption to world markets has been fairly large. War in a major steel producing area of Europe can't be helping. I have been on for a couple of...

    I'm another vote for if it works it don't have to look pretty. Only reason I figure my wife is still around. I do get the job done but I darn sure ain't pretty to look at. I like the Lee 6 cavity. Not a "great" mold but for a production pile...

    People willing to do wrong or even evil exist in all groups and all walks of life. Pretty sure even the apostles didn't get there by merit. That said the best way to encourage that evil is to demonize a group as if they are somehow not really...

Scrap.... because all the really pithy and emphatic four letter words were taken and we had to describe this way of getting casting material somehow so we added an "S".
