    There is no guarantee that tomorrow will come. I've lost 9 friends in the last 2 years. For longer trips like that I found it's cheaper to rent a fuel-efficient vehicle and you have no wear and tear on yours.

    Interesting, Lloyd detested boys from Dixie with their pickups and Confederate flags and pride in Southern heritage. He was delighted when the move against Southern/Confederate heritage began some years back. He could not understand why Southerners...

    Being forced to purchase a pound or two is a killer due to Hazmat. Normally I never order less than 32 pounds at a time.

    Yup, I just placed an order last night and that's what I did. I did need it in 2 days so I paid extra for that. Shipping in general over the last couple of years has gotten really slow except for Amazon and they use their own trucks or they...

    Depends on the person I received them from. Most people think nothing of hopping into a vehicle with someone else driving yet they don't trust this same person's reloads. Odds are far greater that they will hurt or kill you in their vehicle verse...

    Just watched the Lunar eclispe from the deck. I got lucky and also spotted one very good meteor trail and one that I am guessing was a comet. It had the longest length and longest lasting trail I have seen.

    I mostly work on NRA Service and Match AR's. For Service rifle a #4.5 trigger is required. That is one of the reasons two stage are so popular. When you preload the first stage to about 3 pounds the break only requires 1 1/2 pounds. For my Match...

    I have been able to get fairly decent trigger pulls on stock triggers with replacement springs and stoning/polishing the sear. That being said most aftermarket triggers are far superior to most tuned stock triggers. Single stage verse two stage...

    Those are just video's pulled from the web. Not my site or video's. I do use the rubberband method when I use the 600. I don't use it as much as I did in the past since that operation happens on my Dillon Super 1050.
