  1. At least I could understand those old shows, today’s panic driven articles seem to be more along the lines of “ my sister’s best friend’s cousin knows someone who heard that the possibility of getting this overwhelmingly deadly virus is nearly 100% if you live in the same neighborhood as someone who may have been exposed by touching a napkin in their yard without medical PPE and tossing it into the trash can plus everyone they have spoken to is certainly infected by breathing the contaminated air”. Unfortunately, as reported by today’s media, that is what passes for scientific and intellectual discourse today. where is the dang sarcasm emoji anyway? regards Gateway Kid
  2. Gotta love their virologist regarding the change in verbiage from the cdc. “this is due to unclear messaging from governmental officials” ummmm no this is scientists in a rush to publish (and slam the president) who didn’t bother to do the “science” part More leftist bs Regards Gateway Kid
  3. Finally home should work how and where do you need paid? Gateway Kid
  4. If the “flax” ivory will fit my new model single six 32’s I will take both sets for $60 shipped Gateway Kid send pm and I can send payment as you like on Monday am
  5. I am a new 45 CS user. This set is what I use with a 45 colt shell plate on a Dillon 550. I think the auto rim crimp is a roll type and my standard 45 ACP is a taper. If I am incorrect someone will let us both know. Took a little fiddling but works great with 130 grain Barnstormer and 160 grain rnfp. Regards Gateway Kid
  6. Don’t know how to post a link but LifeZette.com may 14 time stamp 5:03 about 1/2 through is what I was looking at. i did a lookup on “surgeon general” and it brought up two or three articles. The previously linked article in the Atlantic stated that masks were 99% effective at stopping transmission of the virus which sounds a bit high and that is what I am questioning. regards Gateway Kid
  7. It seems the surgeon general disagrees with the linked article. I did read the piece and I admit I am a bit skeptical of most published articles these days as so many are contradictory to one another. Thank you for the link and hope all is well with you and yours. Regards Gateway Kid
  8. Correct A family friend whose mother died 8 days after my mother passed, called about verbiage on the death certificate. Both moms had been battling cancer that had been diagnosed as terminal for some time, both were required to have a covid test upon entry to the morgue. My mom was negative, her cause of death was listed as cardiac failure. My friends mom had cancer in several locations including lungs and breast tissue, Her covid test was positive. her cause of death was listed as respiratory failure with complications due to covid 19. Kicker is her doctor did not perform a test in January and she died within 2 days of his prediction date after being under his care and a terminal diagnosis for at least a year. As I understand it her death will be lumped into the “coronavirus” category. WTH!!? Regards Gateway Kid
  9. A doctor friend told my wife and I that depending on a mask (homemade and most of those available to the public) to stop/contain a virus is like trying different underwear fabrics to stop a fart. Everything is about the viruses relative molecule size and porosity of the mask material. Visualize spraying a garden hose through a chain link fence, the water is the virus and the fence is your mask. Regards Gateway Kid
  10. Sadly my mother passed away April 2, 2020 after a two year battle with a terminal cancer. She lives about 250 miles away from me but for the last two years I have gone over to take care of groceries, out to dinner, bills etc. every weekend except in the winter when the passes are chain lawed or closed. The last time I saw her was the Monday before she passed and we spoke of looking forward to being together again that coming weekend. I told her how much my wife and I loved her and she said how she loved my all of us. It was a blessing that she passed as she did in her home (86 1/2 years old) and that my brother had come up from Texas to do tax stuff for her (he was there when she passed). She is now in a better place though those of us still here really miss her. Lesson from all of that is don't miss an opportunity to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you because you may not get a another chance to do so. Regards Gateway Kid
  11. These are my "go-to" choices Regards Gateway Kid PS - For a change of pace, Makers Mark
  12. Recently got a pair of the Wrangler’s. Polished all the internal parts and changed springs. When stock, had grinding and grating noises, needed two people to open the loading gate and pulling the hammer back required a two handed grip, no duelist unless your thumb was really strong. Now way way way better. Still a little picky about ammo but only have about 400 rounds thru them. (CCI’s work great, bulk types iffy) Roughrider’s were better out of the box but after only a couple shooting seasons are becoming loose and starting to get less reliable as far as FTF. Both serve their intended purpose nicely (low cost entry level) and are reasonably accurate. YMMV Regards Gateway Kid
  13. To the formerly free people of Canada. What the heck are you letting your rulers do to you? "They" are your representatives not your overlords. While some would say these are "reasonable" restrictions, by banning "categories" of firearms "they" show: "They" do not know, understand or care how a firearm works or the differences between firearms. Most semi automatic firearms work under similar principles of mechanical operation, so banning a AR15 because of how it operates opens the door to banning a Ruger model 10-22 because it operates in a similar fashion, has a detachable magazine and can be dressed up to look "military" "They" say these restrictions have been in process for a while, then why not announce them months ago and have open, honest and intellectual debate instead of obviously waiting for a nut case to go postal? Timing is everything for the gun grabbers/socialists and it is very suspicious that these restrictions were contemplated for some time but no information was leaked to the public about them until they have an emotional peak to ram them down the throats of their citizens/subjects. "They" have absolutely no interest in regulation as far as the safety of the public. This is all about criminalizing the ownership of a mechanical device that stands in the way of the governments total domination of its law abiding citizens. The first articles regarding this event stated that the perpetrator could not legally purchase, possess or operate ANY firearm as he was already a prohibited person. He killed nearly half of his victims using fire as a weapon, yet there is no call to ban gasoline or matches. "They" cite the need to ban the Ruger Mini 14 based on an event that occurred 31 years ago. Yet there is no discussion as to why this person was prohibited, where he obtained his firearm(s) or ammo or most importantly why he was not locked up for his previous offenses. Here in the USA we are dealing with the same issues, officials to whom the Constitution is an obstacle to be outwitted, circumvented or simply ignored. Sheeple who mistakenly believe someone else actually cares about their lives and will willingly give control of themselves (and their families) to another without thinking of what they have surrendered. Overzealous enforcement by some officers who repeatedly insist "they were only following orders", which is what most of the defendants at the Nuremburg trials used to excuse their actions. Sorry for the rant but as long as "they" are given free rein to do as they please by the public, by not fighting back, you (and we) have already lost your (our) freedom. Sadly Gateway Kid
  14. Way to go Doctor!! Has a really nice ring to it!! All the best Gateway Kid
