    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Went into my stash of Federal primed pulled 6.8 SPC cases to add to this lot. I also have what American Reloading called 2nds. Basically brass with sealant in the case neck or damage to the end of the neck. Sealant removes with just running a brass brush through it. The case necks get about 0.070" removed from the end from the start. so the ones with damage get mostly removed with the first cut down. So I had a bag with 34 loose cases and grabbed a bag of 100 to start with. See about getting them cut down tomorrow. Thanks, Glenn

    Draco is toast, no injuries, but it won't fly again

    Well that's sad! Glad everyone was able to walk away. Hopefully we will see Draco II in the near future. Thanks, Glenn

    Talk to me about home security systems.

    I’ll look at them but I’m sure they don’t have any storage on them. My upload speed is .5. The system requires 1 to 1.5 per camera. I’m way off the mark for speed.

    Wolfgang Car Care Products

    Knowing your area and weather, I'd use the window sealant/clay bar the glass & the H2O Guard and gloss with a few of the gray borderless tows, you can also find them on amazon sometimes cheaper. Undercarriage wash I let a automatic car wash do that, around here tey have mag chloride remover they spray on the underside & will do that 2-3 times a month depending on weather, have a couple automatic car washed on a convener belt that are really cool and state of the art & they do a good job. You can also buy undercarrage washers that attack to a power washer and do a really good job at hime, guys I know do that all the time on Raptors after running them hard on the beach or sand/desert. I just took a yard sprinkler and washed the belly of the truck when we got home from Oregon and got about 1.5 cups of sand & took 3-4 hours doing it moving the sprinkler around trying to get it really rinsed off.

    45 Super have any of you converted a 1911?

    Nothing you do will drive a hard cast 45 like a 10mm. Asked somebody his recommendation and was told in the 10mm go with a Glock 20 and drop a 6" KKM barrel in it with a comp, but you need to call KKM f https://kkmprecision.com/product-category/glock/20/ and then put a holosun 507c on it. However, if it has to be a factory 1911 then Dan Wesson 10mm or Springfield TRP both with factory 10mm barrels, but they will have more recoil and slower follow up shots than the G20 with comp & 507c

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    If you could figure out a way to make it multi-round adjustable that would be awesome. One jog that could be used for multiple calibers would be a hot commodity.

    Talk to me about home security systems.

    I have a system because I live alone and am gone 190 nights a year. Its sole job is to make it it very difficult for anyone to snatch my guns...all my other crap is what renter's insurance is for. 3 layers of security there...front door, alarm system then gun safe.

    Talk to me about home security systems.

    Yes, I use cam locks in addition to the standard lock on windows, I put them on the vertical slide, pr3vents the window from opening. and is easy to remove from the inside. Sliding doors get a block of wood 2x2 the length of the door to add a brace to it. I wan5to add color night vision capable cameras to the front an$ back of the house.

    Talk to me about home security systems.

    Are any of you adding physical security to your doors? Like better door jambs, longer screws, certified locks? I know I'll get a lot of "won't do any good" comments. But most standard exterior doors are easy to force open. By adding reinforcement to each door, you not only delay entry, but you might surprise someone enough to leave after two kicks don't work. It makes noise kicking a door more than once and there's a psychological component of "did someone hear that?" or "I'm taking too long already." After all, alarm systems are secondary. A good lock and secure door is step one.

    Talk to me about home security systems.

    I made this decision myself last December. I did a ton of research and read a lot of reviews. Initially I was gonna go with Simply Safe but read many alarming testimonials on the system reliability and hackability. I went with Frontpoint in the end. It swas substantially cheaper than ADT, I own the equipment and the account is portable if I move. The install was very easy and monitoring is $45. There is a contract which was the only downside.They use a smash protection base station and control pad so if a burgerler destroys keypad before it alarms it goes off automatically.
  23. Wow, tough situation. I would have called 911 and let them intervene. I can't stand to see a woman hit by a man. Chances are, any intervention from any of the bystanders would not have ended well. You can clearly see the mentality of that family. PI (Parentally Impaired) for generations, or so it would seem.

    Talk to me about home security systems.

    How far off the upload speed are you? Ring says my upload speed isn't up to par, but it still works and I can use the Ring doorbell camera for everything other than a smooth two way conversation. All the recordings are great with full video and audio. And that goes straight to some server via wifi. I just can't use it live to talk to someone without it breaking up or buffering.

    Good Evening from Alaska!

    Welcome back!
  27. Found it!!! It was in a box that was still taped shut labeled "Reloading Stuff". I don't know how many times I walked past that box. I just noticed it tonight, cut it open and there it was. Man, that was driving me nuts. Unfortunately, shortly thereafter, I lost it in a tragic boating accident........ Thanks for all the suggestions...I think.
