  1. It's always wise to have at least two manuals (or more) to compare data. I ran across a conflict on a 45 Colt load once, the starting load in one manual was very close to the max load in another. I checked the powder manufacture's site to see which one was correct, or a least close. The biggest mistake I made when I started reloading was using one manual, Speer I think. It didn't have any data for cast bullets, so me being the bright individual I was at the time, and pre-internet, I figured a 200 gr bullet was a 200 gr bullet regardless of being cast or jacketed. WRONG I didn't blow anything up or lose any appendages but it was lesson learned.
  2. We mustn't let both sides of an issue get out. YouTube is banning all content the platform says is spreading misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine. The video-sharing platform gave examples of content falsely claiming the coronavirus vaccine is dangerous or causes chronic health issues; claims that the vaccine causes autism; claims that the vaccine does not reduce transmission of COVID-19; claims that the vaccine causes infertility and so on. My favorite line.....which I would consider as a joke. "Working closely with health authorities, we looked to balance our commitment to an open platform with the need to remove egregious harmful content," https://www.foxbusiness.com/technology/youtube-anti-covid-vaccine-content-misinformation
  3. He was probably trying to finish his KFC
  4. What is the bottom one in the second picture ?
  5. I looked for one of these for several years and finally had to settle for a 20 incher. I'm going to have to find another lever, you have one more than me I've only got one Winchester in .22 mag, 2 Rossi's in .45 Colt (1 24" and 1 16"), 1 Rossi in .357 (20") and a Henry .22. I sold both my Winchester 30-30s a few months ago.
  6. The only used lever guns I see anymore are either 30-30 or .22 and even they are getting hard to find. The Henry's appear to be of outstanding equality and craftsmanship but are much heavier than the Rossi, and Italian clones. Buds has a few Cimarron's in stock but they're up there in the 4 digits and the Sportsman's outdoor superstore has a Rossi 92 in 44 mag for a little over $700. You might want to wait until hunting season is over, there might be a few more showing up then.
  7. Don't know how many lefties we have on here but it's about time they did something like this. A 10-22 that doesn't throw brass in your face. https://www.fieldandstream.com/guns/left-handed-ruger-1022-review/
  8. It must be true, it's right here on the internet
  9. It must be nice to be able to indulge in things like this. On Aug. 27, the Colt Single Action Army revolver that Pat Garrett used in 1881 to put an end to Billy the Kid in the desert Southwest sold at auction for $6,030,313—the highest price paid for a civilian firearm at auction, perhaps any gun, in history. https://www.americanrifleman.org/content/pat-garrett-s-pistol-sells-for-highest-price-in-history/
  10. While I was in the Navy all we ever got was butter, no margarine. My wife tried for years to wean me off of it to no avail. She also tried to feed me that watered down crap called skim or 2% milk. No luck there either.
  11. Now this is some health related research that I really want to believe. Love my butter and whole milk A diet rich in dairy fat may be linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, researchers say. https://www.foxnews.com/health/diet-rich-in-dairy-lower-risk-of-heart-disease-report
  12. Adorable moment doting mother bear teaches her cub to use slide in a park in Asheville, North Carolina. https://video.dailymail.co.uk/video/mol/2021/09/23/7116313917046961227/1024x576_MP4_7116313917046961227.mp4
  13. Give us a review after your visit. I've driven by there numerous times but was always in a hurry to get out of that town, within the speed limit, and didn't stop. (Notorious speed trap)
  14. This is somewhat like mandating that everyone has to eat 4-5 oz. of peanuts a week regardless of allergies and side effects so some folks could get kickbacks from the industry. Most would be fine, a lot would get sick and some would die. The ones in charge wouldn't care as long as the money kept coming in. These people don't care what-so-ever about the results and the people affected.
  15. The White House said it "strongly opposes" a provision in the 2022 defense spending bill that would block the Pentagon from dishonorably discharging a service member who refuses to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Section 716 of the NDAA would prohibit service members who are discharged over vaccine refusal from receiving anything other than an honorable discharge, noting that "many Americans have reservations about taking a vaccine that has only been available for less than a year." https://www.foxnews.com/politics/white-house-opposes-ndaa-banning-dishonorable-discharge-covid-19-vaccine-refusal
  16. If you can't find someone to blue it, I highly recommend a product called Blue Wonder. It's somewhere between a hot blue and a cold blue. Midway carries it and there's a few you tube videos out there on using it. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1006363070
  17. As serious as Covid is, it does provide some humorous moments......or news every once in a while. Two men found with a car full of Kentucky Fried Chicken and around $70,000 in cash were arrested as they tried entering New Zealand's largest city, in violation of its tough COVID-19 lockdown measures. https://www.foxnews.com/world/new-zealand-auckland-kfc
  18. I wonder how long it will take the FDA to pull this from their "Approved" list if it's proven to work A gout drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) could reportedly show promise in fighting the coronavirus. According to a recent study from the University of Georgia (UGA) published in Nature's Scientific Reports, probenecid has potent antiviral properties that make the oral medication a prime candidate to combat not only SARS-CoV-2 infection but other common and deadly respiratory viruses. The school noted that probenecid is primarily used to treat gout and has been on the market for more than 40 years, with minimal side effects to patients. https://www.foxnews.com/health/fda-approved-gout-drug-shows-promise-in-fighting-covid-19
  19. Nope. At the bottom of the page with the choices....... TCA § 55-4-103 Design Requirements : Tennessee statute requires the display of “Tennessee,” “Volunteer State” and “TNvacation.com” on the plate, as well as county name and expiration year decal locations. Statute provides that Tennesseans may select an “In God We Trust” plate option.
  20. I would go with the white vintage. The blue plates would clash with many vehicle colors IMO
