    I'm a retired Electrical Lineman. My customers called me "Lightman". The name stuck!

    I learned to melt lead at a very young age, like maybe 9. Was always very careful and never had an accident or burned myself or anything else. I have always enjoyed melting lead, and making things for myself. I happened to be born on April 1st, thus the name Casting fool. Didn't start casting boolits until 25 yrs ago, but I have been collecting lead for a long time, even cast a few boat anchors, using a tin can as a mold, and an open fire as my heat source.

    My handle came from one of Sheriff Jim Wilson’s articles about old gunfighters.
    John Wesley Hardin was surprised on a train in Florida by a pair of lawmen that he recognized. He was said to have yelled “Texas by God!” as he fumbled his draw and got buffalo’d on the spot…..
    And as well, I’m a proud Texan who believes in God and have since I remember remembering!
    A local woman printed a Texas by God tee shirt for me(wife’s idea).
    But I love to wear it in Colorado

    In 1995 I shot my first three bearded turkey. Thought it was a big feat back then so used it for my forum name.

    In Feb 1998 I found my first meteorite, which lead to buying and selling meteorites. When I went to set up a web page for selling both meteorite and meteorites were already taken so I wound up with star-bits.com. Dealt in meteorites for around 20 years, traveling on hunting trips to Australia, Oman, (a couple times each), Lesotho (small country within South Africa), and Mexico, as well as around the USA. Left out the dash for my handle. Best find was a piece of a lunar meteorite in Oman.

    Glad you enjoyed it, Don! It's the pinnacle of my career....not so much as a trail builder, but in the light of it being a rural economic development project. It really has taken off and gained popularity in the last 10 years or so.....loooong after my involvement, but still very dear to me. I'm a native West Virginian, and to see a new economic future for the coalfields in the world we live in today is heartening!

    I picked recycled bullet because I used up a lot of propane remelting and recasting (recycling) all my mistakes. I started with 2 and 6 cavity lee molds, a 10 lb lyman iron pot over a Coleman stove with the Lee ladle lol! Then I jumped right into four cavity hollow point molds !! I had a hard time with the learning process of bullet casting. Casting bullets is by far the most difficult part of my handloading Journey and it is the most satisfactory by far. I taught myself how to cast bullets in march of 2020 and in the beginning I was absolutely terrible. I would throw them back in the pot and try again. And try again. And sweat and cuss and finally I started to learn and understand the relationship of heat management, timing, Cadence and then my hands developed a new skill.
