    Dang, there was some great writing and performing on that show.

    That beer looks like it might be a Sierra Nevada, if it is he has good taste in beer at least

    That’s not beer. It’s a child water bottle. Seriously.

    Plenty of power for knockdowns at CAS distances. 

    I settled on this load because it’s economical and easier on my shoulder. No need or desire to beat myself up. There’s still plenty of flame and boom.


    The main objective with shot shells is producing a well-distributed pattern. Some folks use too much powder which produces a pattern that looks like a donut. Be sure you pattern yours. 

    Your shells look great. Love the flame!

    Some of you of a certain age might remember that from the Mercedes Benz song.

  6. Yup, they were paid off. My parents helped with what they could with short term loans for tuition, which was about $1,300/yr. at University of Kansas. I worked year round for everything else. 

    To this day I don’t understand why 12 hours/semester is considered full time. In my day, that was the threshold between part time and full time students. The average student load was 16 hours. No wonder it takes so long to graduate. 

    The outrageous cost of college now is a direct result of easy loans backed by the govt. There’s been no reason for colleges to reign in the cost.
