  1. I ate it! I was shocked when I got it. My future mother in law just thought is was the funniest thing ever to see me blush 10 shades of red when they brought it out!
  2. I had a talk with my daughter the other day. She was talking about a cute medical assistant that mentioned he had a room mate during a conversation while flirting with her. The other medical assistant laughed and tattled on him and said his room mate was also his girlfriend. My daughter was flattered that he would call his girlfriend a room mate so he could flirt with her. I told her that there in lies the problem. She was being drawn to yet another guy that was proving that he would be disloyal to a girlfriend. She hadn't looked at it like that...
  3. Here is an opposite story: In 1983, while still in the USCG, I bought a Dan Wesson .357. I was going to visit my girl friend on leave for my birthday. My girlfriend went into a local mom & pop gun shop and told them I had just bought a pistol. What should she buy me for my birthday? She surprised me with a boob cake, a Lyman Orange Crusher press, an RCBS powder thrower, and an RCBS balance scale! And 37 years later the only thing I don't still have is the Dan Wesson and the boob cake!
  4. I didn't want to ruin the Old Gentleman thread, but I have had just the opposite experience... I have a bad track record on helping guys my daughter has a relationship with. I taught her husband how to reload and got him hooked on CAS. Within months she caught him cheating and divorced him. Two years later she got engaged again. He fiancé wanted to learn how to reload and wanted to start CAS. I taught him. New Years eve she caught him cheating when she checked his phone messages. I am no longer teaching anyone she is dating to reload or take them to CAS matches until
  5. Stolen from castboolits forum: The Old GentlemanYears ago I got a M94 30-30 for my 14th birthday. A year later my grandmother gave me $20 for my 15th birthday. The next day found me in Fosters Sporting Goods in Dallas, Oregon trying to figure out how many 30-30s in combination with 22 LR HPs I could get. There was an old gentleman observing my one person conversation and he decided to butt in. He convinced me to get a Lee Loader, an 8 oz can of Unique, 500 CCI 200 primers, a small plastic head mallet and a tapered punch. I even had enough money left over for a couple boxes of 22s.O
  6. Not me. I take cortisone shots for my bad knees. No big leagues for me!
  7. I keep seeing that that having a reduced firearm category will never work for keeping score, and yet NCOWS does it.
  8. I am an example where it was an issue. I wanted to get into in 2002. I bought my first Colt Cowboy and then looked to join. I saw it took two pistols, a rifle, and a shotgun. That's not happening with a blue-collar worker raising kids working in a factory. It took 16 years and selling a book to get the money to buy all the guns. Yuppies trying to look like John Wick don't want to play cowboy. (ARs and wonder nines are far cheaper than what we use.) Us construction workers and factory workers that watch westerns when they get a chance do want to play cowboy. This is the first thing that comes u
  9. While I'm close to Ben Avery, it would have people dropping like flies in June.
  10. Try @Middlefork Bob, SASS #53945. That should get his attention.
  11. To lower your initial expense, you can use non-Dillon dies in the 550. I only have one setup that I use full Dillon dies on.
  12. Call Dillon and have them help you get what you want. The strong Mount is great. You will need the dies AND the conversion kit for each caliber you want to reload. It makes it easier if you have a separate toolhead for each caliber to make changing easy.
  13. The AE (Angle Eject)was to allow use of a Winchester and a scope. They are not allowed in NCOWS matches. (Let the NCOWS bashing begin...)
  14. I'll take the crimp die. PM me with payment info.
  15. Taylor's offers conversion cylinders for their 1851 and 1860 percussion revolvers. They are five-shot. Can I assume there is a hammer landing spot between the chambers so all five can be loaded?

  17. It could be part of a leader that is broken. Without something to reference for scale it's hard to know. The hook is a circle hook that is designed to draw the hook to the corner of the fishes mouth if slowly reeled in. I have used them for flathead catfish and musky using live bait. It's best to wait until the fish starts to swim away and then reel the slack in. The hook can then set itself and it's fairly easy to remove. I use 100-pound test leaders for musky that use a clasp somewhat like that shown.
