  1. The answer is a resounding NO. What they ALL have in common is many many many hours of practice, both dry fire and live fire. Smart, targeted practice aimed at making their worst skills into their best skills.
  2. But one of my Dremels has a rechargeable battery! Seriously, Creeker gave good advice for kitchen table smoothing. It's a similar technique to what I use. But I'm not a gunsmith and I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
  3. Ah, I understand now. I suppose the answer should be no, as a man isn't eligible to shoot in a Ladies category. To be consistent, why have a box to check for Ladies, Boys, or Girls? The category selected should be sufficient.
  4. Snakebite, I'm entirely clear what you're getting at here. Are you griping that a woman can choose to shoot with the men, but a man can't choose to shoot with the women? Are you getting politically correct here on gender identity? What if a woman identifies as man? Or a biological man as having no gender at all? Or is this strictly an issue with semantics? You know I love you like a brother, and we've had our share of disagreements, and maybe my feeble brain just can't wrap itself around your intent with all of the other noise floating around the landscape, but would you mind being really s
  5. I gave up on all of those and bought a Yoder pellet smoker. Temp range is 150 to 650. Grills steaks, burgers, etc really well. It's a really good smoker, brisket, pork butt, pastrami, ribs, chicken, turkey, sausage, etc. We're also using as an oven (since our oven failed). Pizzas, cookies, pies, lasagna, bread, even a quiche. My wife wasn't sure it was worth the money, but she's come around and really happy with it. She said it's one of the best things I've ever bought.
  6. As always, it depends on your budget. I have hats from a few different makers. My favorite in the "Crappy" line from D Bar J. Very high quality hats that are essentially "2nds". And, for what you get, a very reasonable price. https://www.dbarjhats.com/ I have 2 D Bar J hats, and they get the most use. Doc
  7. I think it's this. The virus, riots, and a mess of new gun owners. I'd add that at the beginning of the Pandemic there were shortages of a number of products, paper products like toilet paper and paper towels, even chicken stock, canned goods, and other things. Couldn't even get a number of canned drinks due to a shortage in the aluminum sheet used to make cans. This is the same time folks started buying up guns, and ammo. When ammo got into short supply, primers went next. Yes, some folks are hoarding. I don't know where exactly to draw the line from "being prepared" to "
  8. Answering that will cost you $300.
  9. Sheesh. I had a package delivered by FedEx and got an email to fill out a survey. 3 days later, UPS delivers a package and I get an email to fill out a survey. I go to the eye doc, and get an email to fill out a survey. My going rate for survey's is $300 per 15 minutes. If you want an answer, you're just going to have to make it worthwhile. Otherwise, I'm not going to respond.
  10. I believe that Cholla is right. But always best to confirm with BATFE (sounds like a great convenience store to me - alcohol, tobacco, firearms, and explosives. A great date night).
  11. I had to read that post about 4 times to figure it out. It sounds like you're interested in the 7 1/2" barrel? And if someone has one with a 7 1/2 inch barrel that would like a shorter one, you'll swap that out? I'm still not clear on the offer here.
  12. No affiliation. This is not the group we used, but should have the info you're looking for: https://socalrattlesnakeavoidancetraining.com/
  13. I like snakes. I prefer that they avoid me. They do good things, like eat vermin that get into our houses and cause problems. I won't kill a snake, even a buzztail (rattler). One evening a year or 2 ago, my wife went outside with the dog and my daughter. I heard her yelling for me and went to the back door to see what was going on. There was a diamondback at the base of the 2 steps down from the door. They all stepped over it going out back. I had them back off and get the shovel, just in case. The snake slithered into a hole in the concrete from the form next to the step.
