  6. I've read too many stories about the grit of the Canadian Military to believe this makes the majority of Canadians happy. Not to mention the spirit of settling the country that is shared with Americans. We are losing too many people with the warrior mentality on both sides of the border every year. So what is the state of young people in Canada these days. Are they plagued with PC and hypersensitive feelings ? Is the Military all volunteer, and are they getting the numbers they need ?

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    And what's sad is I could just chuck those 45LC's up in my little lathe and create that grove with ease.... Boomer, if you wan to mail me those I'll fix them for ya. And after yesterday's load-fest with 32 ACP I needed a case to put the cartridges in. So I went looking around on the usual places and could not find anything specifically for the little 32. Then I got an idea. Scale down another case. In this case, pun intended, I scaled a 45ACP case down to 75% size. The first one I printed had issues related to the design. Since the creator was kind enough to include the Solid Works 3D CAD files I took to fixing his issues and now I have a working case that I like. Once printed I took a small drill and cleaned out the hinge holes and a pair of #18 nails just pressed in as pretty as you please. See below along with my cool little Llama 32 1911 and some ammo:

    Grand baby #2

    The wife and I got a call this morning at 5:30. Grand baby #2 is on the way!! 4-1/2 hours later we’re in California in a waiting room. I’ll keep you all posted when the little one arrives.
  14. Yep, I'll already down with the small snacks throughout the day with no large meals. If the Good Lord would stop reruns of mini-me Job with me, I might be able to get a leg up on it, but my one knee, one foot, both hands, arms, shoulders, and neck are not playing nice. All but the one foot are directly attributed to injuries, not because I was obese. Even though I was the second oldest in my Academy class I was ranked 5th in physical testing (including tactics) I was much more proud of that than my first place Academic ranking, because I was up against a lot of younger men who were in great shape. I think it was mind set. I was determined to leave it all out there. After my on-duty injury, I went back to school and took my first desk job, and it has been a struggle with weight since about age 45 when my metabolism decided to take a complete powder without the required exercise. It's very frustrating. Retirement should be the turning point. I can start regular exercise, and if I have to spend the next day resting, with ice and heat, I can, and not have to worry about doing my job and battling the pain at the same time. Retirement should be a game changer for my health. I may have waited a bit too long though...word to the wise, your health has to come first. John

    I right clicked on your pic and copied it them pasted it into my post....since it was already in your link it just popped it in. When I use Imgur I load the page that has all the thumbnails then click the pic I want. When it opens there is a menu on the right and I hit the Direct link and paste that into this sites link space and the pics pop up. When I get home (think next weekend) I will look at my 45 lc brass to see how they are made as I have a bunch of older stuff too.
  17. No doubt.... I'm kinda broken too. Beware of the older guy with a little fat on him...lol.
  18. AS the Drill Segeant said and constantly made our metal headgear ring and our butts tapped with a copper rod. If they can't see you they can't shoot you unless it is indirect fire.
  19. Two RIA 1911 10mm Glock 40 MOS with the long barrel soon SA XDM 10mm SIG Hunter 10mm I also want to build an AR15 pistol in 10mm with a big arse magazine
  20. We had the luxury of ear pro with receivers to hear the RO's commands while at the range. Our class presented a plaque to one of the RO's. He would give range commands with a heavy Japanese accent. Just about every time I shoot, I hear his voice, even now. "Front sight, and presssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss". I hope he knows how much of an effect he had on recruits.

    Caldo De Res

    Bought some beef neck bones and stew meat Friday. Got up this morning and put the Beef neck bones in some water and fired the burner up let it boil for about 5 hours till the meat fell off the bones. I then added some beeth broth and the stew meat and boiled it some more till the meat got tender. Then I added some beef broth, diced tomatoes, corn, cubed taters, green beans, English peas, some cubed carrots and cooked it some more. Then I added some Knorr Caldo De Tomato Boullion, Herbs Du Beaumont, and some Knorr Sazon.(two packets.) Dayum this is so good.

    They are the same in rifle and pistol.. I'd sure like to know when those were loaded. I'm betting back around the time I was born, when they were inventing dirt, but they are different than any I have from the early 80's. I had to move about 100 pounds of various brass to get to my 45 LC stash as you had me wondering about that groove. I loaded 300 rounds of 9 MM today at the bench. Fine tuned my 550 on the primer cup assembly and now it's running like a scalded rabbit. I'll check out the pistols on Tuesday and make sure they are spiffed up for my range trip. Greg
  24. In Saudi, trapped in the circle of death....don't remember anything except thinking/screaming in my head "front sight, front sight, front sight" seeing the bridge of the nose and then having to decock....... When we would qualify the RO' would all scream front sight, over and over and over.......
  25. Thanks for the reminder, am taking a page out of your playbook, but instead of ignoring Rampy, the troll plus his sidekick have joined the ranks of those on ignore....funny thing looking at that list...more people on it are banned than not banned.....
  26. slow and low....break them connective tissues down.

    Would there be a difference between pistol rounds and rifle rounds? Were the ones without the groove made for pistols only?
