  1. If you don't already have a very cheap supply or a large amount of lead that you've picked up in the past, the cost of purchasing lead alloys doesn't seem to be much less then buying finished bullets. The exception being good black powder bullets and long range or other specialized bullets. I've only cast big lube bullets not regular bullets for smokeless.
  2. Perhaps he would have reacted differently to a request to sign some older used albums from an obvious fan as opposed to brand new albums purchased with the intention of getting them signed.
  3. This month he has a similar article with loads for 44 magnum rifles. Some years ago he published a book about 44 caliber handguns and rifles with lots of load data.
  4. I know money's tight for some people. But with the lack of availability at times and the huge increase in cost during the shortages it would be cost effective to find a way to purchase primers when they are plentiful and as inexpensive as possible. Same with powder. Lead bullets haven't been as big of a problem. 10 to 15 thousand for me.
  5. I'm not a big Billy Joel fan but I like it! Good for him.
  6. Yes there is a problem with NRA leadership. But the much, much bigger problem is that somehow the government at all levels is allowed to weaponize investigations against one side while the other is not held accountable. The IRS under Obama was used against conservative groups for one example. This should be obvious to everyone by now.
  7. So if you owe someone $5 you can pay them back with 2 $2 bills? Good to know.
  8. I've seen coverage about Sturgis and they had a reality show about those outfits that depend on that week for their income. Still I didn't realize how mant people go there each year. There can't be enough rooms for them.
  9. I've never understood why they allow reporting on results from the east while voting is still going on in the west. For a fair election all voting should be finished before they start announcing results. Some voters may not vote because it appears their candidate is going to lose anyway. Some like to say they voted for the winner and may change their vote. And for those who "find" more votes as needed it may give them an idea of how many they need. I'm not saying that many voters would switch votes to back a predicted winner but in a close race a small number can make the difference.
  10. There may be a difference in handling the number of absentee ballots that have been requested in the past compared to over 120 million voters being mandated to vote by mail. Many more votes available to be "discovered" or altered on an as needed basis.
  11. Margarine that came in a bag with a dye packet. You broke the dye and kneaded the bag to mix the color to make it yellow like butter. I looked this up and found some info. There were different laws in states allowing the sale of white margarine but not yellow. Big battle with the dairy industry. Some of it is like some of the modern gun control laws in restricted states. Here's the part that surprised me. In some states yellow margarine was legal to possess, but illegal to buy. Hence the development of these bags with the dye pack. Crazy. Another thing I remember is when the cartons of milk were first replacing glass bottles, when you opened the carton flakes of wax would fall off until they finally improved the process.
  12. I umpired one season when I was 16. Supposed to be little league starting with minors who weren't on the regular little league. But one time they scheduled me to do a couple of adult mens softball games. Not fun for a 16 year old ump. My brothers middle league team (13 to 15 year olds) had a makeup game. At our umpires meeting a couple of others said they'd do the game. My dad and brother went to the game. The umps didn't show up and dad came and got me to umpire. Brother got 2 or 3 consecutive hits and I could hear the players "no wonder his brother is th he umpire" complaints. His last at bat I called him out on the last pitch and everyone said i screwed him over. One summer of that was enough.
  13. I remember an interview with a democrat politician about some proposed gun control law. He admitted that the law wouldn't really prevent any crime. He finished with, "it would make people feel better, and there's a value to that."
  14. Again. I'm not saying that this is a big number considering the population. Obviously MA is not as restrictive as Ca. specifically on getting ccw permits. Other gun related laws yes. I'm simply stating that in less populated, rural areas of Ca. you can get a permit. Nothing more. Why read more into it?
  15. I'll have to give this a shot. My wife is up early to get ready for work and has had to wake me up because no water. 4:30 I'm out there getting it going. She knows how to do it now too.
  16. Believe me, I'm not bragging. Just pointing out that in the more rural areas you can get permits. Nothing like the free states but it's not all Los Angeles and San Francisco.
  17. I wasn't as concerned with mag capacity before and it's true that most ccw events are a few shots and close. There are more reasons today to give capacity more consideration. Multiple attackers surrounding you in or out of your vehicle, etc. If you're going to leave your gun at home because it's too big for you to carry then you're better off with something that you will carry. Just going by statistics you can justify not carrying in the first place.
  18. The latest info, year old, that I've seen is around 125,000 permits in Ca. I wouldn't go by what someone at a gun store told me without investigating further.
  19. Whatever you choose reliability is at the top of the list. With todays environment I also want higher capacity then what I would have considered sufficient in the past.
  20. When he mentioned Sacramento county I assumed he was a resident. Yes you must reside in the county you apply in.
  21. I assumed that bgavin was a resident of Sac county when he mentioned it. But yes you must be a resident of the county you apply in.
  22. You should check out ccw permits in Sacramento county if you want one. Unless somethings changed real recently many residents have them. Most rural counties are pretty easy. LA, San Francisco, Marin, Santa Barbara and some others virtually impossible to get. I realize Sac county is not one of the small rural counties but they have given out many.
  23. We've had the ants between the contacts 6 or 8 times. First time I called the well service when we woke up with no water. He came out and showed me what to do in the future. I have a flashlight, can of air and very fine emory board cut to fit between the contacts. I spray the outside and cable with insecticide occasionally or when I'm gone at a match for a few days. We also have a deep hand pump installed on the well head so always have drinking water if the power goes out.
  24. I've read several reports on this. As usual any witness accounts that support their agenda are reported as fact. Anything else is treated as lies. They mention the interview he gave but leave out the part when he said that those who hate him are too big of p@ssies to do anthing about it. We don't know the whole sequence of events yet but the media reports it as stated by the "protesters".
  25. These two young men are real life heroes in a world where people are called heroes for the most ridiculous things. Thank God for them! Wow!
