  1. The fact that you appreciate vets means a lot, pard. Believe me.
  2. Having shot BP for several decades and tried virtually every specialized commercial and home made guaranteed cleaning concoctions known, I have come to some conclusions. 1. H2O is not always your friend. 2. Pyrodex is horrible. Especially if you live in a humid area (which I did for years) and are slow to clean your guns (which I am). 3. Windex, or a Walmart equivalent, works great for cleaning. Better than Ballistol. 4. For BP subs, I like Trail Boss or 777. I still prefer the real thing though.
  3. No that was the Forester. $8,000 worth of hail damage back in ‘16. Despite environmental and road disasters, I’m a big Subaru fan now. Great vehicles.
  4. I don’t know how many chips I’ve had filled. But you get a crack and pretty much screwed. Crappy thing is it’s a month too late. Gotta pat the deductible.
  5. Damn! And people wonder why farmers can barely make a living.
  6. Pourin bad luck on me. Got the water leak fixed and now the windshield on the Subaru took a rock on the highway. Nice 10” crack. At least the auto glass guy has one in stock. Already replaced one windshield last September. Arrrhggh.
  7. There are other calibers besides .45? Who knew?
  8. The thing with brass shells is, besides being occasionally stomped, if you use them in different guns they will probably have to be re-sized due to the differences in chambers and the expansion of the brass. I only use one shotgun for brass hulls.

  10. Yeah. More trouble than it’s worth usually. Make wind chimes or ceiling fan chain pulls outta em.
  11. Veterans Day rapidly approacheth. Come all you military vets. You Swabbies, Grunts, Leathernecks, Airedales, Bubbleheads, Squida, Wingnuts, Coasties , et al. Sign up and send your fuzzy cheeked recruit pics in. Let’s see how many new guys and gals we can get before 11/11. https://sassvets.homestead.com
  12. Armscor/RIA are made in the Philippines. They’re fine. Brazil makes the Springfield govt model 1911s
  13. I have to stop reading threads. First I wanted the double barrel 12 ga pistol. Now I want another 1911.
  14. I disagree. That can mean the team with the weakest schedule can end up on top. I think the playoff system is as fair as it can be given the number of teams in baseball now. Not perfect, but nothing is.
  15. Don’t get me wrong. I can cook a pretty tasty meatball. I am not advocating frozen over scratch built. But I feel they are a perfectly viable alternative when time or lack of experience is a problem. If you haven’t tasted the Cooked Perfect brand give them a try sometime. You have nothing to lose.
  16. Actually I have used thee in the past and they are really pretty good.
  17. I tripped and fell on a fire ant nest in Florida when I was 8. Had many nasty encounters with them for the next 50 years.
  18. That Wild Card team has been playing some great baseball. I like that. And they Are the league champion. Just not their division champion.
