Re: Chris banned permanently.

A long time ago I decided to stop letting people (digital OR analog) live in my head rent-free. I've been much happier since.

Re: Chris banned permanently.

Wow...did some catching up today. Arizona, Idaho, New Hamster, Florida. That's a lot of chaos with a wife and little guy in tow. Only had very small direct interaction with him, but read his blog now and then. Always wondered why so much drama...hope he gets it together. Wherever you go, there you a...

Re: So who's still here?

I've been an Uber-Lurker on better sites than this! I came over at the beginning, but got nuked for not posting and had to re-reg. I miss the old gunthing reviews..one of my first non-milsurps is a Camp-45. Still love it. Can't believe that was 10 years ago. Had lots of free keyboard time when the k...

Re: Happy Birthday gromulin (50)

Hey...just noticed it says I joined in 2012, and only a few posts?. I came over the first day from the old KdT board. Not as active as I was 2004-2008, but what happened? Was there a purge? Database blowed up?

Hey all. Long time reader and lurker around here. I actually go all the way back to the Gunthing days, but went dark for a couple years when the kids were toddlers, and got wiped from the DB. Don't post much, but y'all seem like okay folks. And it's 12:59AM and I'm wide awake. I'm waiting to find ou...

Re: Need a Little Help (for My Mom)

So sorry to hear. Losing a parent is an unparalleled life event, no matter your age. I still miss them both every day, but see them in my kids every day also. Circle of life.

Re: Difficult Day Today

I understand entirely how you feel. Last year when my son was born, I lost it completely in the delivery room because my parents couldn't be there to greet him, and he will never know them. It never gets any easier, you just push it away for a while. But it always comes back. I know exactly what yo...

She/Her actually. And the reason is because she is long cycle bi-polar and was under a tremendous amount of stress for several years... and she just popped. Huh. I was even more of a lurker back in those days, never much for drama, and was extremely WTF? about how that all went down. Never knew the...

Re: Redding Turret Press

I can add that I'll be using almost all surplus brass, so I already know I'm going to spend another $100 on that Dillon primer-pocket swage. I'll probably get the hand priming tool so I can just watch TV and prime cases in bulk. The turret just looks like the ticket for me. Thanks for the feedback o...

Re: Redding Turret Press

Redding gear is extremely popular with benchrest shooters; Those who don't use arbor dies anyway. Frankly I consider the Redding Ultramag one of the best of the mainstream single stage presses available. Que? What is this Arbor Die of which you speak? What makes it different? I'm no tool and die ma...

Redding Turret Press

As I wade into a new swamp of reloading fora, I can't figure out why Redding gets so little love. Dillon vs. Hornady seems as cultish as Glock vs. 1911. RCBS seems to be the solid, if not fancy, budget friendly cousin. They are just north of me in Oroville, and I remember my Dad had an RCBS press. A...

How to make an idiot sputter uncontrollably

My new go-to line when asked "why I NEED a gun" - (Stolen from @TheH2 on Twitter)

“I don’t need my AR any more than Rosa Parks needed to sit in the front of that bus. My civil rights, like Parks', are non-negotiable.”

They just go apoplectic. It's so cute.

Coast to Coast AM is great entertainment. The doublewide-based scientific community never lets me down. That's because I enjoy listening to schizophrenics late at night, they take themselves SO damn seriously.

Re: J-Frame safety question

Hey all, Thanks for the insight(s). Especially about the ergonomics of DA only design and +P or full house out of a snub.

But, now, the pocket gun is the 2nd priority behind a couple AR lowers. I'm in CA, so I gotta concentrate on what will be legislated out of existence first...

Thanks again

Hello again all. It says I'm a n00b here, but I used to post a lot back in my C&R frenzy of '06 - '09. I've been distracted from my guns by life and kids, but am now looking for some advice: I'm set on getting a snubby j-frame .38 / .357 for a truck/trail/carry gun. I seem to remember there bein...

Re: The Adze

I've got a couple of those. Dad was an old school carpenter. The length of the handle was custom to the user so they could swing them between the legs safely. A sharp Adze could really ruin a pair of boots.
