  1. Brought my three kiddos to Akron Indianas trick or treating night and Misty and her crew were very busy passing out candy. The town of Akron is so excited to have them there. It’s been fun talking to all the townspeople about our awesome shooting sport. Exciting times!

  2. I have one nephew that joined the AirForce and left a while ago for basic, and have another one that just got out of basic and is now a proud Marine! can’t quite express just how proud of both of them I am!

  6. Honestly, I did also. Matter of fact, as I slowly scrolled down, when I saw 'his' head and shoulders and only ONE person standing in front of him, I thought it was one of his political rallies. ..........Widder

  7. This day do we celebrate our silver anniversary: 25 years of marriage and still just as happy as if we had good sense! Many years, many memories, much laughter, and as happens between every married couple ... we almost develop our own language, our verbal shorthand, our standing jokes. I ran up (okay, drove, I'm too lazy to run!) -- I went to Olive Garden and got a meal to go. Melissa is not up to going anywhere unless it's most urgent and that's fine, that's why God invented curbside pickup. Anyway -- They include little foil wrapped chocolate mint thingies, Melissa handed me one and said "Mint, dear?" and we laughed ... You see, we went to the annual Civil War Show in Mansfield, reputed to be the biggest in the country, and we delighted in viewing the simulated field hospital amputation: as a couple medical veterans, we watched, commented quietly to one another, smiled indulgently as everyone around us cringed at the sound -- a plastic pipe inside the dummy leg makes a surprisingly realistic sound when the saw bites into it -- and in the shocked silence that followed, Melissa innocently held out a box of Tic Tacs and said "Mint, dear?" Everyone but the surgeon, the surgical nurse and the patient turned and glared at us like we were ghouls! We still laugh at that one!

  8. The local Elks club had a Halloween/Casino night fundraiser for local charities. We gave our western clothes the night off. Shortcake picked our theme from a show called "Below Deck" about crews on luxury yachts. We got first place as a couple (I'm sure it was my legs that put us over). Let's see what y'all are wearing or going to wear!

  10. Came across this old pic we had taken at the fair long ago. Somewhere around 1987. I was about 28 or so. Pic wasn’t the greatest to start with and time has not helped it, but hopefully good for a grin. JHC

  15. My adopted grand-son is finishing up at the Navy nuclear training school, out in Carolina. He will then be stationed aboard a ship, like as not, a carrier. We are all so very proud of him. The young men, and women, who volunteer for the service, are keeping my faith alive in this country, despite the traitors that are in political office, and despite the stupid ideas that are going around now (like defund the police). I know when I was in the military, I did not particularly like it, or want to be there, but I was determined to do what had to be done, and also I had it in my head that we were helping to keep a people free from the slavery of marxist-communism/socialism. We were either bored, or scared, but we were all determined, never-the-less. May the Lord bless and keep our service men, and women, who can be in harm's way in an instant. May the sacrifices they make be honored forever. May those traitors who abandon, and sacrifice them, for their own disgusting "reasons", be brought to justice in this life...as they will surely be brought to justice in the next.

  16. I dunno. My dog has never fetched anything in her entire eight year life. She's so lazy that she brings me her VitaBones one at a time to break up into bite size pieces for her.

  17. If he holstered after shooting 8 and did not shoot off the two rounds, it would only have been scored as 2 misses. SHB pg 21 But he corrected before engaging the rifle. Phantom is spot on here: No call.

  18. Much good and sound advice, thank you all for your wise counsel. Subdeacon, you're right about progress on the slipface of a sand dune, that's what it feels like! We celebrate our silver anniversary today, 25 years of wedded bliss. I swore on this day, a quarter of a century ago, that I would -- including the worse, the sickness, the poor. I wanted to choose better, richer and health, but it wasn't multiple choice (darn!) Anyway -- We were back in ER last night. She thought she had another kidney stone. Wasn't. Colitis. Augmentin is not a kind antibiotic to the digestive system; that's run its course, as of last night she's on two others to head off any opportunistic C. diff colonization. Neither of us intended to celebrate our 25th in ER, just sorta happened ... what was it Mother Teresa said? "If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans!" What can I say ... I am a commodion ... I must be so full of it I need flushed ...

  20. Here's how I like to slug a bore. I like to use a slug of soft lead that is at least 1 1/2 times long than the bore dia that's being slugged. This extra length assures that the slug doesn't wobble or try to turn in the bore as it's hammered through. This can be verified with short slugs. Measurements will vary depending on where you measure it. The longer slug yields more consistent results. Make sure the bore is clean lead free and lightly oiled, as in an oiled patch pushed through it. You can drive the slug in from the muzzle if you use a leather or rubber mallet so as not to damage the crown. I like to drive it all the way through to feel any high spots or bulges. I like to use a brass or hardwood dowel that is close to bore size. A rod that is too small can deform the soft lead. Next if it's a levergun I use two wooden dowels just smaller than the bore and cut to the cartridge OAL. These are inserted into the chamber end and the action closed. Next the slug is re inserted in the muzzle end and driven to the wood dowel then bumped up so it's now tight. Now, open the action, remove the dowels and gently tap the slug on out. This will give you a really true picture of the bore just in front of the chamber or farther out depending on how many dowels are used. To measure I use a zero-ed Starret micrometer. Most dial calipers aren’t accurate enough.

  21. That's about the simplest thing you could ever do... I try to use an "egg" fishing sinker, just slightly larger than bore size. If you can't find one slightly larger, take one slightly smaller, hold it on its end and smack it with a hammer a few times 'til it "fills out." Lube it (heck, use Vaseline if nothing else!), start it with a mallet then drive it all the way through 'til it pops out of the chamber. Grab your micrometer or dial caliper (or vernier caliper, if you're up to it!) and there y'are!

  22. We readily pigeonhole others-- and we pigeonhole ourselves. I know many self-identified liberals who own and use guns. But they would call themselves liberals, not progressives. I grew up hunting with Democrats, and I'll bet a lot of you did, too. There are many shades of opinion among gun owners and regular gun users, contrary to the assumptions of many.

  23. That’s great @Crazy Gun Barney, SASS #2428 I just found out one of my nephews just joined the Navy and is going into Avionics. The last time I saw that boy he was about 8 years old. I am proud of him.
