  1. I got a big surprise this morning. I was looking for a Lee .45 Colt Taper Crimp Die when I came across a Lee Classic Loader for .45 Colt. I already have one, but decided to see if this was a fluke listing or maybe some old listing that had been overlooked. It was not. Numerous times on here I have seen folks lament the demise of these little hand loading systems, so I figured I would let you all know about it. .45 Colt .45 ACP .357 Magnum .38 Special 9mm Luger .44 Magnum .223 Remington .308 Winchester .30-06 Springfield .45-70 Gov’t .270 Winchester .30-30 Winchester .243 Winchester .303 British Here is a link to the .45 Colt set. You should be able to find the others once you get here: https://a.co/d/5a9PG4D
  2. The reincarnation of Burl Ives
  3. Yeah, California is famous for this. The same politicians condemning them will let it all slide. Not directing this at you Dan. This is just another typical California elitist political move.
  4. Heck, I’d give SASS HQ a ring. Couldn’t hurt.
  5. I saw them listed on the Taurus website a while back. I have no knowledge of them though. Making Colt clones is very popular with all these different companies. Kind of like 1911s.
  6. Did he have it made at one of the big SASS matches? If so, whoever put on the match might be able to tell you who the vendor might be that made it. Perhaps that vendor has a digital copy of it. Also, it probably wouldn’t hurt to call SASS HQ. They may be able to help.
  7. Just be patient and don’t push yourself. We’d like to keep you around a bit longer, TM.
  8. When I was a kid, me, my brother and a couple friends did the same things on our bikes. We built a great ramp using my Dad’s plywood and 2x4s (Strike 1) We started off jumping for height and distance. My brother Jeff took that day’s record in that stunt. My Dad came outside and was watching us. I jumped over 5 kids and my Dad put a stop to those antics. All of a sudden he says “Where did you boys get the wood for this?” ”In the basement” ”(litany of colorful expletives)” A short time later a car was coming down the street. We moved the ramp. After the car passed we decided to leave ramp where it was…about 20’ behind my Dad’s station wagon. “Well just jump at an angle so we don’t hit the car.” Famous last words. My brother Jeff came barreling down the street, hit the ramp too straight and BLAM! Right into my Dad’s car. Luckily he was really hurt…until we were marched inside by my Dad and we each got 3 cracks for using the wood and crashing into the car. As for the zeppelin/carrier photo belong fake? I did a search and couldn’t find any site making that claim. I did find plenty of info that this event was the first and last time a dirigible landed on a ship.
  9. San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. I have encountered this collective of idiots before. I have little respect for this department. The same goes for Kern County. I clearly heard the helo officer say “The girl is out of the truck. She’s on the passenger side.” She ran, like any scared person would and some trigger happy or completely inept morons shot her. This is shameful.
  10. Well…Look at the big brain on Brad, I mean, Marshal. I just copied and pasted. I didn’t name the happenings, but you are right.
  11. This is an interesting collection of photos from years past. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but the photo of people riding the Broughton Lumber Flume sure looks like a lot of fun.

  12. And shortly after this photo was taken the gent on the left burst into flames because his cigar ignited his wool jacket pocket flap.
