Re: Russian Roulette Fail

I have a feeling the "shooter" will be charged with First Degree Murder, and the other guy will be charged with third degree murder.
Pointing a pistol at someone, knowing it is loaded and pulling the trigger is murder.

This whole story stinks, there is a lot more to this story than is being told.

Re: Trump grounds Pelosi's trip

I am quite sure the troops were disappointed that she couldn't come pay them a visit. She is extremely loved, with only Hillary holding a warmer place in their hearts.......Ok, that hurt to write. The people I know there feel like they dodged a bullet in that they weren't going to be voluntold to d...

Re: M-1 Carbine Price From 1965

Yes, times have changed. Back in the early 1960's, you could buy really nice condition Spanish 7mm Mausers at Zaire's for 12.95, and they had "sporterized" examples for $15.95. Surplus 7mm Mauser ammo was $2 per 100. Bought my first 1903 Springfield at Montgomery Wards for $20 in 1964, at the age of...

Re: M-1 Carbine Price From 1965

Yep, I bought a M1 Carbine via the NRA from the DCM in 1968.
It was $22.50 plus 2.50 shipping via Railway Express.
It was a National Postal Meter, 1944 date, and I still have it.

Re: How do you mark reloaded cases ?

I use a triangular Swiss file to make a very small notch on the back side of the rim to indicate each time I reload the case.
I do this on black powder cartridge cases, like the 577/450 Martini Henry.

Re: Am I the only one that does not care if the gooberment stays shutdown forever?

I worked for NASA (contractor, not Civil Service) for almost 40 years. I went thru many of these "shut downs" during those years. I never lost a dime in pay during any of those shut downs, as we were always given full pay for the days the Space center was closed. Thus, it was really nothing more tha...

Re: Lead bullets in Marlin micro groove barrel.

You would have to cast your own using very hard lead.
Years back, people had good luck using 100% Zinc cast bullets in those microgroove barrels.

Re: Decent Melbourne Show this weekend

Just built up a few project Broomhandle Mausers. I've had a pile of Broomhandle Mauser parts in a "Project Box" for about 30 years, and now that I'm retired, I finally had the time to build up three decent "shooters". They are totally mismatched, but they all will work. I'll shoot the factory ammo,...
