    There was a fire in June but they planned on rebuilding. Per a family member if the family was still running daily operations they would not be closing it. https://websterparishjournal.com/2021/06/22/public-awaits-answers-on-goex-explosion/ ...

    BJK, for what it's worth, they can hardly keep up with demand as is. A sophisticated web site won't help that at all. As mentioned their forum and the fellow on youtube who lives just down the road from NOE will get you most answers. I'm not...

    BJK, I hear the frustration. I often find it difficult to finger out what is needed and then find them on the NOE site, but they are there. I just spent 10 minutes finding the top punch holder you need for sizing n seating GC's bottom up. I'm...

    We throw people off our ranges who intentionally make hot loads for new shooters. Great way to make new anti-gunners. Don't be a jerk.

    Being a history buff, I read quite a bit about Benedict Arnold. Considering how he was lied to by the government and how he was treated, I don't see him as bad as he was painted. As far as my family, the most embarrassing person in my family...

    While it's a .357, I'll have to go with my 4" S&W 686 no dash. 2nd place goes to my S&W K Combat Masterpiece 5 screw from 1953 with a 6" barrel, my birthyear gun. Murphy

    I stumbled across this little 600 watt electric burner at a Goodwill store today. It was missing pieces but that little tightly wrapped burner coil kept staring back at me saying, "I'd be perfect with a small cast iron pot." Knowing the Lee 4...

    Any firearm can be damaged under the right (or wrong) circumstances. It is true that a Glock has fewer parts and they are all drop in. After that I see zero advantages of a Glock. I am mostly around 1911's yet I have seen more blown Glocks than...

    Or something like this? a repurposed Goodwill aluminum fry pan (3" deep) that fits perfectly on my propane fryer. Good thing about aluminum relatively easy to cut with a reciprocating saw.
