  1. I had a secretary about 20 years ago whose husband liked to hunt. At that time, she calculated that deer meat cost about $75 a pound.
  2. I believe Phantom was making a point about a TO not being on top of things. I seriously doubt he was being literal about awarding a "P" to the TO.
  3. Sometimes pards don't know as much as we might think. Not suggesting that's the case with your mentor. I am suggesting you read those reloading manuals cover to cover anyway (I have three). I'll bet there are some things that haven't been covered in your conversations, not for lack of knowledge, but because there's so much to cover. I've been reloading for 10 years and there are still things to be learned. One of the best books there is: https://www.amazon.com/Lyman-Cast-Bullet-Handbook-4Th/dp/B004DWBKQY/ref=sr_1_1?hvadid=234327295654&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9023901&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1o1&hvqmt=e&hvrand=12258714700744991341&hvtargid=kwd-6900806613&keywords=cast+bullet+handbook&qid=1553639892&s=gateway&sr=8-1
  4. I fired one of those once. And that was more than enough.
  5. Actually, all aircraft create wingtip vortices. The bigger the plane, the bigger and stronger the vortex. That's what caused the mid-air collision that destroyed the XB-70 back in 1966 in addition to other accidents through the years. Probably more than you wanted to know!
  6. Illusion. Angle of view/perspective makes it appear that way. If the plane was directly overhead, you'd see the 4th contrail. As Trailrider says, the contrail splits in the top right of the pic.
  7. Missouri is famous for diverting tax revenue. It's one of the reasons voters denied the 1 cent "transportation" sales tax proposed a few years ago. Proponents refused to specify how the money would be squandered...err, "spent". A few years prior, Kansas City voters approved a 3/8 cent sales tax specifically for the bus system. The city pirates...err, "leaders" then diverted the funds to other pet projects and still have the temerity to claim the bus system needs more money.
  8. +1 to Fingers. Unless stage instructions specify it must be shouldered (they didn't) or "at the ready" is defined or demonstrated during stage reading, it's no call.
  9. Neither is mine, err... me! Just trying to stir some interest in a rifle that so many own, but rarely see the light of day. Would ya leave a thoroughbred horse in the barn? Can't get any more classic than a Henry!
  10. There are folks who SAY they're shooting their Henry, but that don't make it so until a bullet goes downrange. I'm your huckleberry. Throw down!
  11. I've not heard that about the S&Ws, but then I'm a newbie. Never a hiccup with my 1990s era Colt Series 80 govt.
  12. Hot loads are of no interest to me, and a .357 revolver is on my "B" list. However, this thread has been very informative on the chance I consider one. More knowledge is always more better when shopping! https://www.thehighroad.org/index.php?threads/smith-and-wesson-new-k-frames-forcing-cones.841391/
  13. Link doesn't open for me, but thanks for the heads up. I wasn't aware of this issue on the 19 and will do more research. Is the problem confined to a particular "dash" range, that is 19-1 thru 19-7 etc.? I assume a this kind of crack is visible to the naked eye?
