  1. Dagnabbit! Been siting here at my desk reading my blogroll and sipping coffee. Totally forgot to say Good Morning while still morning here!
  2. Dr. Paul had a huge following and I believe he was winning in many states during the primaries last run he made. Sadly the R's did the same shifty crap to Dr. Paul the Dims did to Bernie. Rules changes, debate snubs etc. All sorts of dirty tricks. The R's took his standing seriously and stopped him before he could really gain a lead overall. Where they failed with Trump was the R's never took him seriously until it was too late.
  3. My wife and I went to the County Agricultural Show and one of the first exhibits we stopped at was the breeding bulls. We went up to the first pen and there was a sign attached that said: THIS BULL MATED 50 TIMES LAST YEAR My wife playfully nudged me in the ribs ….. Smiled and said, “He mated 50 times last year, that’s almost once a week”. We walked to the second pen which had a sign attached that said: THIS BULL MATED 150 TIMES LAST YEAR My wife gave me a healthy jab and said, “WOW~~That’s more than twice a week! ………. You could learn a lot from him”. We walked to the third pen and it had a sign attached that said: THIS BULL MATED 365 TIMES LAST YEAR My wife was so excited that her elbow nearly broke my ribs, and said, “That’s once a day .. You could REALLY learn something from this one”. I looked at her and said, “Go over and ask him if it was with the same cow”. My condition has been upgraded from critical to stable and the doctors say I should eventually make a full recovery.
  4. Yea, while unlikely to ever really be an issue I'm 'that guy' that seems to find all of the "We've never seen that before" issues with anything mechanical. I found other trustworthy admonitions to not use soft tip ammo in the M1A. The biggest concern is bits of lead getting smeared/stuck in the chamber potentially allowing for an out of battery discharge.
  5. In the last few weeks everyone has been either out of what I needed or is so backed up it's taking more than a week to ship. Graf's was the only place I could find that had the powder chuckers in stock.
  6. After some reading I'm going to pass on the soft tips in my M1A. Frack. Pills are hard to come by these days.
  7. Not so much forgot. Didn't know I needed. When I bought my BL550 it was just the basic press. Hence the BL prefix. After waiting almost three weeks my two new Dillon powder chuckers arrived and wouldn't ya know it my press is missing all the crap for the dispenser reset. Off to Dillon to order the "kit" to add these parts. I'm sure I'll be another 2 weeks waiting.....
  8. I read somewhere part of an email from a rep at Springfield Armory. He stated not to use soft tip pills in the M1A. His point (heh) was the M1A is hard on bullets out of the mag and the lead tips may shave off and jam the rifle. Is this so or was that some disinformation being spread? I've got a few hundred Hornady 150 grain soft tips I would love to use for loading 7.62 Service Rifle since components are so difficult to get these days.
  9. I think your title is not what you intended to post.
  10. Primers will be the hard part of the ammo equation. I can assure you 100% home made ammo is deep into development. I know this for fact. There are already complete guns you can make at home with simple tools beyond a 3D printer. A fellow who goes by "Ivan The Troll" has a process for making rifled barrels that uses electricity to cut the rifling. His gun uses no actual gun parts. (photo below) So if TPTB ban gun parts you can still build. Even the magazine is 3D printed with a hand wound spring. There's a line from a TV show that applies here. "You can't stop the signal Mal." Knowledge once released is like toothpaste. You really cannot put it all back. And then there's this: Anyone skilled at machine work and welding can make top quality firearms in his home shop. The futility of bans should be obvious.
  11. less than 10 years ago you'd be lucky to print a Hot Wheels sized car in a few hours. I'm amazed nearly daily. Somewhere north of 200 rounds for now. Between the Kung Flu Plandemic and ammo/reloading supply shortages I've curtailed my shooting.
  12. Nancy Pelosi was visiting a primary school in Tampa and visited a grade four class. They were in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked Mrs. Pelosi if she would like to lead the discussion on the word 'tragedy.' So our illustrious Democrat asked the class for an example of a 'tragedy'. One little boy stood up and offered: "If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs him over and kills him, that would be a tragedy." "No," said Pelosi , "that would be an accident." A little girl raised her hand: "If a school bus carrying 50 children drove off a cliff, killing everyone, that would be a tragedy." "I'm afraid not," explained Pelosi . "That's what we would call great loss." The room went silent. No other child volunteered. Pelosi searched the room. "Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?" Finally at the back of the room, Little Johnny raised his hand. The teacher held her breath. In a quiet voice he said: "If the plane carrying you was struck by a 'friendly fire' missile and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy." "Fantastic!" exclaimed Pelosi , "That's right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?" "Well," says Johnny, "It has to be a tragedy, because it sure as hell wouldn't be a great loss ... and you can bet your sweet ass it wouldn't be an accident either!" The teacher left the room
  13. Pretty truck. I'm driving a 2012 Silverado 4x4. Can't bring myself to spend the long green for a new one.
