  1. Like when I was stationed in England. Early winter morning, we, Limey and I, were going to a car boot sale. The roads were icy, but drivable. We were coming to a curve when another car traveling in the other lane, drifted into mine. I swerved and locked up my brakes and ended up knocking a bridge abutment across the creek. The driver stopped and we both waited for the police. They showed. The other driver said he didn’t wonder into to my lane. I said he did. What the officer said to me was, “since there was no trading of parts or paint, there’s no evidence that the other driver entered my lane, BUT something caused you to swerve and brake hard while you were obviously traveling in the middle of your lane.”
  2. The attention getter for on coming traffic?? Would that be the one to make said vehicle wake up and go “VROOM”??
  3. Another possible source is S & S Firearms. I’ve dealt with both, Lodgewood and S & S, and can gladly say they’ll treat you right.
  4. YEA HAW!!!! Another Plainsman Shooter!!!!
  5. I've always kept my firearms in the vehicle. Have never been asked and I won't lie to them if I was. It's just that I won't give them any addition information they don't need to know about.
  6. Does being mounted on 2X4's, then C-Clamped to my workmate count?? Both my Lee Turret and Shotgun presses are mounted this way.
  7. That was always the joke when I had to run a engines on fighters after a lot of maintenance was done. "If it catches fire, remember!! Forms first, then fire extinguisher! If asked why forms were used, just answer that it was the closest thing available and you were just trying to beat the flames down!!"
  8. Same here. Just not too sure if I'm going to C&B or cartridge the pistols. I'm going to start loading cartridges this weekend and see how they do. Rifle choice will depend on the outcome. If I end up C&B, then the rifle will most likely be my 1860 Henry. Shotgun will be hammered. What are you thinking about using?
  9. Let me re-phrase this. No we don't reload EVERY week, but when we do, we average 350-700 rounds a week. Boy, folks really are getting cabin fever!!
  10. I have an old Lee Turret press as well, but we, Limey and I, still use a hand primer to seat primers. Slow, but you will know/feel if a primer isn't seating well long before you get the feedback through the handle. Limey and I share the loading process when we load 38's, which is what she shoots. She'll clean, size and deprime and place in plastic bags or shotgun boxes. I'll bell the mouth and place them in loading boxes. She then primes them and gives them back to me. I'll load powder and seat the bullet. She'll then crimp them. Slow, but we stay ahead of shooting match requirements and we get to do them as we can. Normally, we'll load anywhere between 350-700 rounds a week. If the weather is really nasty, we'll get a lot more done. Oh yea, we usually use Federals. Winchesters are our next go to primer, then whatever we can get our hands on. Another suggestion is to have several recipes with different powders too, just in case things go crazy and powder gets hard to come by again.
