  1. If you want to research your family tree but can't afford it, just run for public office!
  2. Today is my birthday. Now I see what I have to look forward to next year.
  3. I might have been able to finish it back when I was 15.
  4. My advice is to spend the money and get the highest grade gun available. I got a Service Grade in the first round and it is a very solid gun and shoots quite well, at least as well as I can hold it.
  5. Anybody got a Union Switch & Signal slide?
  6. My dad gave me that book and I read it many years ago. I wonder if it is still available. Now that you've mentioned it I'd like to read it again.
  7. Years ago I buddy and I went to a farm supply store in westerm Montgomery or Chester County, PA. I'm wandering around and notice a rack of bib overalls hanging on the wall. The tag hanging from one caught my eye so I went over to take a look. Here the tag had the Donkey logo from the old TV show "Hee Haw" and it said "Official Supplier of bib overalls to the Hee Haw television show." I must have laughed for 10 minutes.
  8. My 1987 Mercury Grand Marquis probablly would.
  9. The way I remember it (probably from the old Gil Hebard Catalog) was that measuring rim thickness would allow you to separate cartridges by common rim thickness. Theoretically it could improve group size.
  10. I don't wish to be an enabler for someone with a substance abuse problem either. But on a couple occasions in Baltimore I have bought food for somebody that was begging. I think I bought some gas for someone one time in Baltimore. We can practice charity but nothing says we have to contribute to people's problems.
  11. My mom taught me how to cook and do laundry. My dad taught me how to shoot, reload and change the oil and oil filter in the cars.
  12. My late uncle had a pedigreed female beagle. An absolute sweet dog around my little cousins and a fantastic rabbit dog. Part of my remembraces of my uncle are of hunting with him behind his beagle.
  13. I've been going to gun shows since I was a little boy. I'm disappointed that you had such an unpleasant experience with the show you attended, but these times are an aberration and certainly not an example of the overwhelming majority of gun shows I have attended over the last 60 years. I had the good fortune to be raised reading the American Rifleman, Gun Digest and Shooter's Bible literally from the time I learned to read. Being at the beginning of the learning curve combined with the crowd was probably pretty overwhelming. To help prepare for your next gun show, join the N
  14. I'm old enough to remember how primers disappeared all of a sudden back 35 years ago or so. I leamed my lesson back then.
  15. I remember it too. Back in my misspent youth I was an oldies disk jockey.
  16. Back in the late 70s or early 80s, I had a chance to buy a Model 1922 Springfield .22 target rifle. Happily I didn't turn the chance down. Now that I'm retired I need to get it out and take it to the range and see what we're capable of doing.
  17. We had serious lockdowns in PA thanks to our governor. I live in a small town and all of our non-religeous gathering places were closed down. Luckily in this area four states come together and I live 3 miles above the state line. On my last birthday I had to drive two states away in order to have a drink for my birthday but I decided I was worth it and I did it. It may seem like a pain in the neck right now, but if you have a place where you used to see people you know, please put on your coat and head out the door to be among them. They will be as glad to see you as you will
  18. I have a piece of railroad rail. Under some of these proposals that would be considered a firearm.
  19. What do you mean "revival?" I've been using them for the last 40+ years!
  20. You lost me at MMCS. I was never in the service.
  21. Marshal Mo Hare is essentially correct. Trust me on this one.
  22. Yes, it does, and I saw someone asking the same price for a brick of primers at the York, PA gun show last weekend.
