  1. That's why I keep them in my pocket. Just need to find my pants now.
  2. WInston tastes good like a cigarette should...
  3. Evidently MidSouth has 1 pounders of Unique @ $45 LB + shipping/hazmat. Smokeless Powder for Sale | Reloading Powders | Midsouth Shooters (midsouthshooterssupply.com)
  4. Looks like a kickball to me. I don't associate that ball with any particular sound.
  5. The horse and the mule were also indispensable at one time. Not so much now.
  6. I'd love to purchase locally but, unfortunately, there's only one place anywhere near my locality that is an actual reloading supply shop...and the owner is a complete ass. I wouldn't purchase anything from him if he was giving it away. There is a Sportsman Warehouse and an Academy Sports within 10 miles but they aren't really a store for reloading supplies although they have some primers, a few powders and some bags of shot. I did recently get 1,000 Federal LPP's from Sportsman @ $90.62 per K total. I personally don't see TB making a return anytime soon, including this year. I don't use it so the shortage doesn't affect me but I know a bunch of folks that do...and they miss TB a lot. As far as the profit level described by the Hodgdon rep, the explanation doesn't make a lot of sense. Pre-shortage they were selling TB in for the same price (mol) as other powders but in quantities that were a little over half as much as the other powders (IE - 9 oz vs 16 oz). Seems to me that profit level would be the same or better that the "easy" to manufacture powders.
  7. Up until last week, Unique was available at Natchez in 1 and 8 pound containers but it wasn't cheap ($50+ & $300+) and I think it was available at Powder Valley for a time also. Just have to look at their sites about once or twice a week.
  8. Smart marketing/something for different generations. - Black gun, yet retro...marketing to the modern gun crowd. - Nice wood, retro, big/bad caliber, modified Rifleman type lever...marketing to the traditional gun crowd. - Big caliber, short/medium range hunting rifle...marketing to the hunting gun crowd. - .44 Magnum, nuff said...except for the guttural grunting ...marketing to the Tim Taylor gun crowd. I kind of like it.
  9. Looks like Midol...which kind of explains the machete, rope and duct tape.
  10. And now you're either cold, sunburnt or both...and still broke.
  11. Billy Gibbons, with his beard tucked into his t-shirt.
  12. He's in for a surprise when he gives the "dog" a belly rub.
  13. So much for the Sounds of Silence.
  14. Snaking out the toilet while he's s itting there.
