    So, what the heck was that?

    I was 4 or 5 whiskeys in by then, so I don't remember much. I did see the Pro Trump ad, which shocked me.

    Hey all, I'm still alive

    Oh I know. I like both the traditional and "tacticool" lol. Still want a 45-70.

    Hey all, I'm still alive

    357/38spl. It's going to play host to my 9mm can and run subsonic 38spl. Yeah she's awesome, gotta watch to make sure I give my lab/plott hound mix the same amount of love. He's dopey, but he was our first. She's my girl though.

    Hey all, I'm still alive

    I have a Henry that is brass and wood with the large loop. This Marlin is going to be a host for my 9mm can and run only subsonic 38spl.

    Hey all, I'm still alive

    Hey all, hope everyone is doing well. Been a busy few months around here. Still grinding out this Master's program, almost halfway through. Wife is doing well, crazy busy with work and going to start her own company. Got a new pup in December, female German Shepherd named Athena. Wife's dad (adoptive) passed away suddenly in Sept, so early January we drove out to Arkansas and Oklahoma where he had property to clean it out. It was tough for her, as she hadn't spoken to him in a long time. Other than that, all is going well. Just buying guns, ammo, and reloading stuff. Looking at some acreage for shooting and eventually a house when we retire. Pics of pupper Properties out west. This is of the Oklahoma property, 2 miles of river and almost 700 acres. New toy the wife got me for Christmas, with a few features I added

    Kobe Bryant and #4 others killed Helicopter

    News reports are saying 9 dead. Kobe, his daughter, a college baseball coach, his wife and daughter. Plus the crew, I'm assuming there was at least one. I do get annoyed when people act like stars dying is somehow more important that others. Its tragic, no matter their status.

    Awesome news. Praying for a quick recovery from the pneumonia.

    What Gun-Related Stuff Have You Done in the Past 48 Hours?

    I finished a build a few weeks ago, 12.5 AR pistol. I'm done for the rest of the year, doing some mods on the truck and a few reloading things.

    Mexico carnage

    So who saw the video of the sicarios and cartels ambushing the Mexican Army/Police to free El Chapo's son? Rolling around with RPGs, Ma Dueces, Barretts, 249s, etc...Good to know all that stuff is right across the border. Something something, good people, something something, we don't need a wall There's one video, can't find it now, of cartel guys rolling around in a truck with a couple 249s, some ARs, AKs, and LAW rocket. https://nationalpost.com/news/world/el-chapos-cartel-launches-military-style-assault-on-mexican-forces-securing-his-sons-release-from-custody

    The situation in Syria

    Turkey is far from our ally and a hair short of full blown terrorist supporter. The issue is when people heard Kurds, they think the Pesh that have fought with us for decades, which is not true. The Kurds in Syria are different and while they did help with ISIS, they are a Marxist faction of Kurds that honestly have no allegiance. That being said, I think things have leveled out here within the last 48 hours, as I think there was a ceasefire established. Ultimately, its not worth the lives of our guys. Eventually we have to leave, otherwise we have a 3rd Afghanistan.

    Who else may have passed away?

    I'm not around as much, but still alive. I suppose Neil is still around, though I haven't talked to him since a way back Armory shoot. I'll have to post pics of that, it was years ago. I met up with Warlike again when I was in Airborne School in 2014. Nobody wants to come hang out in NC

    SS case ammo

    There's a lot of misconceptions about steel cased stuff. The case isn't the issue, its the bi-metal jacket on the round. This really isn't an "issue" it can just wear the barrel more quickly than copper jacketed. That being said, Hodge barrels have been tested with M855a1 past 70k rounds with no accuracy degradation. Ultimately, I wouldn't worry about running steel cased through a rifle. Barrels are cheap and the money you save can buy you a new barrel.

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    Thanks! Just picked up a chrono 2 weeks ago, these are my first subsonic loads so I'm going slow.
