  1. So, Iowa is talking about their list of legal “straight wall” cartridges for deer hunting. I jumped on the Bushy as soon as I could get the parts put together and I put some venison in the freezer with my AR. I still love that rifle. Then I build the neatest little 350L for my daughter-in-law and I to share and she liked the cartridge so well, she got my son to buy her a Ruger American in 350L. But now Iowa is talking about adding .50 Beowulf and .458 SOCOM to the list of allowable cartridges. That means I kinda’ hafta’ build one of each of those, doesn’t it? At least an upper? Any thoughts on this?

  4. This is exactly what I tell people who make the claim “God is sovereign. If he wins (Biden) it’s because God wanted him to...” No, friend. In His sovereignty God sometimes allows bad things to happen, bad leaders to take control. (Clearly God does as He pleases and I can’t be the one to say what He must do, but) God did not necessarily put A. Hitler in the Chancellorship to murder six million Jews, Stalin to kill 20-40 million people, Pol Pot to March 2 million people into the rice paddies and machine-gun them... as lions rushed toward Christians in Diocletian’s “games” they weren’t thinking “Well, God did put him on the throne.” I don’t know for a fact, but I believe that God allowed, and did not cause these things to happen. I do know for a fact that God did not want Saul to be King, but he became King of Israel because God allowed it due to the wickedness and hardness of the peoples’ hearts. And He warned them they would regret their faithlessness when Saul came to collect his taxes and to conscript their young men into his army. No, I don’t believe that God promises such earthly blessings, but it doesn’t stop me from hoping- PRAYING -that my children will be blessed with the peaceful and comfortable life that has characterized America for so long.

  8. Did I say “Good morning” ? I meant GOOD morning. Now it’s the old man’s turn! The first is small, but I had two doe tags to fill today! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Sadly, I agree. One can hope for a peaceful, comfortable life for one’s kids, but The Bible doesn’t seem to support a world power such as the U.S.A. in this hemisphere. And at the rate at which we are displeasing The Almighty... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! The kids are home and God’s blessings are evident everywhere! Don’t fall into the easy sin of ingratitude. Be thankful! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. So, my next series of questions. Someone gave me a brand new bottle of American Select. I’m thinking it’s for .45 ACP. But there’s not much load data out there. Someone said the 2004 Alliant manual has quite a few loads but I can only find 2003 & 2005. Maybe 2003 is just as good. My son bought some 185 gr lead SWC bullets and I don’t see an exact load for them. Can I use American Select? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
