  1. I thought it would say, Not bad for a one-eyed fat man!
  2. I've had two separated nickel cases that had a cannelure. They also split faster than brass. Most are now gone.
  3. I write left to right and top to bottom. I'm not going to change that for anyone. I generate messes until I can't stand it. Clean up and organize. Repeat as desired.
  4. Jury instructions were a horrible mess. I wish I were on the jury to vote for acquittal in short order.
  5. I have multiple "notify me" actions at several websites, so I really get annoyed when I hear someone bought primers there and I wasn't notified. This morning I ordered the maximum 1K small primers from Midway, but I had to seek them out and wasn't notified. Why have a feature if it doesn't work? I guess the thing to do is manually search multiple times a day.
  6. Pirates with their cutlasses won the early victories, but if the fight carried on, the lighter swords became more effective against the arm weary foes from what I understand.
  7. A friend's mom got tired of people running over her mailbox and replaced the post with a railroad rail. It didn't work out so well the next time some yahoo tried it as the car was left at the scene.
  8. The prosecutor is the worst I've ever seen. He's a six pack short of a six pack kind of guy. Why this isn't dropped is like the Brandon WH trying to lower fuel costs by considering eliminating another pipeline.
  9. My Lyman manual says 3.2 gr. for a 125 gr. bullet for about 750 fps.
  10. We used to stay in Tombstone until we discovered lodging in Sierra Vista was generally more affordable. It also has several restaurant chains. We do lunch in Tombstone during the week when the crowds are smaller.
  11. My last bullet order was placed in my mailbox instead of by my entry door and it fell over. Ordering online has its usefulness, but it can be a bother.
  12. They say it's been modified so it doesn't bite anymore. I want one.
  13. Original Bisley's are more affordable than the SAA.
  14. I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the sights. As I age, all sights seem to get smaller.
  15. Chances are I wouldn't have enough ammo at a match to supply guns and ammo unless I knew ahead of time.
  16. I have a Rossi .45 that loads 180- 230 gr. bullets just fine, but I find my smaller caliber Rossi is more finicky. I just made some dummies for my .38/.357 that are between 1.48 and 1.5" and they all cycled fine. I still need to shoot them in a match to see how 60 rounds will do. I may order .38 bullets next time without the crimp groove since I have 4 guns that like them longer than the typical crimp groove. With inconsistent supplies, I haven't been able to find and stick with one brand and weight bullet which tends to complicate things a mite. Also, the wife has told me she likes a bullet and then changes her mind after I've purchased several thousand or loaded to an approved length.
  17. I've shot one and found it accurate, but it never struck my fancy. I do have an 85FS that I like although it's an old school gun.
  18. I use Libre Office. It's a free suite program and can be saved in Word or PDF. I typically save first iteration in Word until final editing is done, then save in PDF.
  19. The original rule banning tapered shells was due to the use of a 16 ga. die on 12 ga. shells.
  20. Light bikes like a trials or motocross bikes can do wheelies at will. OTW, I think it takes more power. Roll-on power helps if moving. Lower gearing can assist for stunt type, distance wheelies. Pulling back on the bars? Dunno, didn't work for me on the ones I had. Stoppies (lifting rear wheel under braking) just takes strong brakes, often due to stupid car drivers. Rule #1 when riding- they're all out to get you.
  21. My mom would cut a larger hole in the bread so the egg would fill the hole and she called them "Birds in the Nest."
  22. The green bullet has a more rounded ogive than the truncated cone of the other bullet, with maybe a smidge larger flat. Some guns are finicky with the nose shape and some aren't. My '73 doesn't care about shape as much as OAL, but will generally eat most that fit in the carrier. Short rounds cause the lifter to push the next round back into the mag tube. Too short and you get a jam on the next round which is letting you know to go longer. Some folks load their rounds long to prevent the pushback on the next round or use .357 cases and some as indicated previously, modify the carrier. We have several Lightnings and a '92 that are absolutely finicky with OAL and bullet shape, so I load to keep them happy and use whatever I have for the '73.
  23. I use a beam scale since it's what I have and is close enough for government retired work.
