"Yes, I have considered this route as I do reload but I have not 'pulled the trigger' so to say. I remember that Buffalo Arms has the hollow base bullets but they charge $33 for 50…….yep, just for the lead. Of course I could…"
"My first pistol was the Glock 19. I hated the thing (not that it is a bad gun at all, they make fine guns for sure) but it just did not sit right in my hand when shooting it. I traded it for a single action large frame Ruger Vaquero in .45LC and…"
"I am 52. At age 28 I was racing mountain bikes. When racing I was 6'3" and 217 at my lowest. I allowed life to take over and busyness to occupy my time. I did some skateboarding at age 35-40 but was up to 275 by then. Then I had some heart…"
"I do not own one but have shot many over the year. Jet Propulsion Lab has a shooting club that loans them out for matches and it is a kick to shoot their matches.
My buddy bought 4 from CMP, pulled them apart and then matched the parts up and built…"
"To start with, Paul and John wrote about the gnostics in fairly harsh ways. To think that approach is correct, requires one to throw out a lot of the new testament that says otherwise.
Also remember that 'gaining knowledge' was the boobie…"
"It is all going to depend on the individual.
I love sporting clays myself. I am not really a skeet and trap fan. I could see myself getting bored really fast if those were the only two options.
Same goes for me with pistol or rifle shooting though.…"
"I have some big guns but not ginormous ones. 7mm mag, 45-70....they hurt enough.
The older I get the more I favor smaller guns.
My dad was fond of hunting little Alabama white tails with a 300 mag. I never understood that but he seemed to like it.…"
"I shoot .45-70 in a couple of Browning highwalls. I say this because, like your gun, they have essentially a fixed bolt when firing which means you are taking all the hit, unlike a semi auto that has an action that moves to take away some of the…"
"Some shirts do better in, some out. As mentioned elsewhere, if the bottom is flat cut…out, if it is longer in the front and back, tucked in.
Wear shirts of quality and structure. Too many large man shirts (like from a Walmart) are made…"
"I guess some of it depends. My pastors church as a kid did not allow roller skating, playing cards, the church I am at now had a school and did not allow dancing up until a few years back. They also had a thing that the teaches had to sign to not…"
"no, it is solid barrels. It is an old Steven's 311. Not a classic by any means but it has brought down a good number of quail, doves, pheasants and steel targets.
BP clean-up is actually very fast...and your gun will be much cleaner in…"
"yes on black powder. I used to shoot in the black powder category in Cowboy Action shooting matches. I load shotgun, .45LC and .45-70 in BP. None of that new fangled Clean shot or other BP substitutes. I like the real Goex stuff.
I went on a…"
"I learned leather work back in the 90's when I was doing Cowboy Action shooting competitions. I needed holders and such so I learned to make them.
I've been a woodworker and am trying to make a pipe at this time."
"I like New International Version or Todays New International Version Study Bibles myself. New King James, King James, New Revised Standard, are all good. I am not a fan of the New Living but not for theological issues, I'm just not a fan of the…"

Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again. Wisely improve the present, it is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear and with a manly heart.

"I don't see any solution; life for middle-aged, middle-classed white males like me is simply too busy and compartmentalized.
Well there has to be a "why" behind this; maybe uncovering the "why" this is, is the first step. If…"
Maybe this is just me, but one trend I tend to with people looking for someone to date or marry is some fixation on "common interests" or the other person "liking all the same stuff, e.x. music, hobbies, sports, etc" as me.To me this just seems... weird, and doesn't seem to jive with history; romantic relationships to me are primarily about attraction and love, and the specific 'activities' you do together aren't really that important, it's really about the bonding and connection.Not about a…See More
"Ha, good article on middle age.
I have some old friends. I have a wonderful wife, great family.
I enjoy people I work with (more or less), and my show has even brought me some limited notoriety locally, along with some awesome contacts in my…"
