  1. I spent several years on paper machines.  We would occasionally make bag paper.  I wouldn’t wish that experience on anyone.  8 rolls per set, 5 set reels.  No fond memories.

  2. One thing I’ve noticed about WalMart, is even if it’s just me and one other shopper, that shopper would standing in front of the only item I needed, and reading the labels on every thing on the shelf.

    They removed Cactus Jack Slade so here is Evil Roy Slade in its place

     

     

    (Here is just a goofy fun movie. Kirk Douglas' last western.   In case it doesn't jump out at you,  it's a parity of the cartoon series Coyote and Roadrunner.  Arnold Schwarzenegger plays Handsome Stranger - wearing a costume like the Lone Ranger except no mask.  Ann Marriott plays Charming Jones.  Jack Elam and a dozen other characters we all know are in it.)

    The Villain is the movie WC was referring to with Kirk Douglas as Cactus Jack Slade.  Here's a link to it:

  4. If memory serves, the bullet below the case mouth does not apply to Nagants. I can't quote or post a link, but the topic was discussed a few months ago, and I think the general consensus was the bullet rule did not apply to the Nagant cartridges. Hopefully someone with a better memory will come along and clear it up.

  5. They're definitely different. I had one, used it once at a match. I had made some BP reloads, using a .31 caliber round ball. I was afraid that little 40 grain ball would be very hard to hear on the off chance it actually did hit steel. Turns out, it had plenty of oomph for the spotters, and I shot clean with that pistol.

    Reloads with my homemade BP or 777 FFg are quite a bit hotter than the factory rounds that I got the brass from.

     

    Here's a link to the process I used to reload them:

     

     

    And here's a link to a comparison test between factory, homemade, and 777:

     

  6. Reminds me of the one about the cat the had it's tail cut off by a car driven by a veterinary doc. Doc reattached the tail with the help of a passerby. But that's as far as I can go with this one. Y'all will have to finish it.

     

    If you don't know it ask Sawyer!

  7. I watched one episode. Seems that the hunters have to lay hands on the huntees to end the game. So, if you just locked yourself in your house and enforced Castle Law, you'd have it made.

  8. Actually you could make a phone call for a penny, if you had a dollar bill. Fold the bill longways until it would fit in the quarter slot. Put it in nearly all the way, drop a penny in the nickle slot, then pull out the bill. Dial tone!

  9. There's a little guns store/range down in Sherman, TX that on Thursday nights they set up three targets, shooters take turns shooting each other's scenarios with a timer, and scored like IDPA. I've gone down a couple of times, really enjoyed it. Just like CAS, I'm about the world's worst at it, but it is fun. Usually 6 to 8 shooters show up.

    One night when it was my turn to set up a scenario, I did it so you changed loaded a fresh mag while still having one in the chamber, instead of a slide lock mag change. No one had ever done that, they all seemed to really enjoy it. I've thought about bringing a shotgun to use on a fourth target, but I'd have to ask the leader if it would be OK.

  10. I'm betting a full load of FFFg would beat the factory load. I know that with careful reloading one can stomp a mud hole in the factory load in a rifle. You could also blow up a revolver with those same loads.

    That's why the Winchester loads are what they are. They used to make two versions, an express load and a milder load for handguns. They were specifically labeled as such. But too many folks couldn't or wouldn't read the label, so they were dumbed down for the masses.
