  1. How much useable lead do you figure you'll get out of that 90# pipe once you melt it down into ingots? Angus
  2. Thanks. I don't know what that has to do with hiring illegal aliens, but now I know what "ITAR" means.
  3. This is one of my all time favorite pieces of music. Thanks. Angus
  4. Thanks. The first post I just thought he forgot to post the story. The second post I thought ????????. The third, fourth and fifth post I thought WTH and started trying to figure out what the picture had to do with the heading and what made it worth posting. Then I quit and figured whatever it was, it wasn't worth my time. Kinda like when I miss a phone call. If it's not important enough for the caller to leave a message, it's not important enough for me to call back. Thanks again, Angus
  5. I woke up this morning and realized I've still got some "What ifs". OK. Can't make, sell and ship primed cases without a manufacturers license. What if I bought some primed cases from a manufacturer and decided I didn't need them? Can I then ship them to another person without a license? Will it require a Hazmat fee? I'm not going to do it, I'm just curious about it. Angus Is this how Alpo got started?
  6. If they've been there I've missed them all.
  7. I'm not a regular to the TEAM SASS board and I don't get the point of Charlie Waite's posts. It's just a picture with no text. The thread title may sound interesting but I really don't get the picture thing. Somebody help me out here. I'm really missing the point, if there is one. Angus
  8. So, the folks out there making and selling lead bullets need a manufacturing license to sell them? Isn't a lead bullet a "taxable article" produced by "changing the form" of material? Yep, a consult with an attorney, and probably a letter from the BATF, might be a good idea before selling primed brass. That's a lot of work and expense for selling, maybe, 1000 primed cases to help a pard out. Angus
  9. I know that we poor unwashed civilians can't ship primers, and that the elite few that can ship primers must charge a Hazmat fee when doing so. There are similar restrictions to shipping live ammo. BUT, I seem to recall hearing some time back that primed brass is subject to neither the shipping restrictions or Hazmat fee. Is that correct? IF that is correct, there's your legal work around if you want to buy or sell primers. I started wondering about it because I've got some brass I've been planning on selling, and I think I've got some primers I'd be willing
  10. Having heard some of the stories from a guy that did sex crimes I know I'd have never been able to do it. Listening to some of the unbelievable sick twisted cr@p they had to listen to I'd have never made it. Some of the stories from child molesters... I don't know how they could restrain themselves from jumping across the table and choking the ever-loving stuffing out of them. 27 years as a LEO I heard and saw plenty of weird and sick stuff that "civilians" find hard to believe, but nothing ever gave me the urge to beat a person into a bloody pulp like some of the sick child mol
  11. Yep, my pard, Shoshone Slim. He couldn't talk about politics, so he'd talk about "Choklit Cake". Angus
  12. I'm with Alpo. I'm not a fan of most pranks. I've never understood the humor involved in being a jerk to somebody. I refuse to listen to radio guys that make prank phone calls and such. Ruining someone else's day just isn't funny to me. I don't recall being the victim of such pranks, but I've seen people involved. All I recall thinking at the time was "What a jerk". I guess all the pranks I've witnessed seemed mean spirited and not "good natured". That said, one I recall was done by a fire-fighter on her co-workers. She baked a cake, or brownies, or some such for the crew a
  13. Thanks to all. I'll have to start checking listed velocity when I buy .22's from now on. Just guessing, but I suspect anything marketed as "Subsonic" is going to come with a premium price tag. If I must, I'll buy target .22 LR and reserve it for the rifle in question. I know the rifle will cycle shorts, longs and long rifles without any problem. I'd worry a little bit trying to get it to work with the CBs. If I can find them I think I'll buy a bunch of .22 Shorts. No question about them being high pressure, easy to identify for use in the correct rifle, and the magazine will
  14. I never thought about the folks wanting it for suppressed guns. How is it marked? Does it say "Standard" velocity? All mine has some indication that it is super-duper powerful and really, really extra fast .22 ammo. It probably says something about the actual promised velocity. I should probably look. Angus
  15. Sorry to sidetrack the thread, but (I'm gonna do it anyway), where does one find .22 Long or .22 Short ammo? .22 LR is the standard, now and is all I've seen on the shelves for years. I've begun to wonder ever since I was told an old rifle I have should only be shot using "Standard" velocity .22 LR, .22 Long or .22 Short. I don't even know what "Standard" velocity is for a .22 LR. I do know that all the .22 LR ammo I have is called "Hyper" velocity or some such name indicating the bullets are extra fast. I haven't seen .22 Longs or Shorts since I was a kid. So, who's got .22
  16. I can't tell if they are flaired out or if they have an oversized platter, uh, shoe on them. I know if any of our horses had hooves that looked like that we'd be on the phone with the farrier to get them trimmed. Actually, I'd probably just trim them myself. Our horses don't get shod. Putting on horse shoes would be way above my pay grade. Angus
  17. It may be fun, but it just doesn't have the history attached to it that an M1 Carbine has. Commercial M1 Carbines (Plainfield?) put me off a little, too, for the same reason. Plus, I kind of balk at buying anything labeled "PC". Kind of like buying a car called a KIA. Angus
  18. I hope she still lets you shoot it on occasion. Angus
  19. I caught part of a tv news story the other day talking about a "Reverse Gold Rush". Apparently a lot of folks from CA (They called it an "exodus") are moving out and a favorite destination seems to be Missouri. My first thought was "aw, crap. There goes the neighborhood." I can only hope the libs find someplace else, I recommend Illinois, and MO gets more of you folks on the SASS wire. Apologies to my IL pards. My daughter and son-in-law are in CA. They should stay. Their politics fit right in. Angus
  20. I've always wanted an M-1 Carbine. A friend of mine had one back when I was in High School. Lots of fun. I just can't justify the expense, now. They've gotten way overpriced for me. It's basically a high powered .22. (Yes, I know it's a .30 cal.) Lot's of fun, cool gun, but no real purpose other than plinking. Angus
