    My boyhood friend and I were, shall we say somewhat troublesome. We looked up the recipe for black powder. Talked his mom into a trip to Rexall drug where we bought saltpeter and sulfur. Used some charcoal and brewed up a batch of credible black powder. Then we took a can of Mountain Dew (before the era of poptops) punched a hole in the center of the top and drained out the soda. Let it dry and filled it with our homebrew powder. Used a sparkler for the fuse, lit it and watched. It sputtered for a bit and then the powder really caught fire. The can went about 20 feet high and exploded. We were grounded for a couple of months...lol
  2. It pays to be a boy scout. I'm only surprised by a general lack of situational awareness.
  3. Glad to see this post. I'm in the same boat. I'm curious to see the responses myself.
  4. I ran across a deal on a used one a few years back. Great gun.
  5. You guys are still playing ammo roulette? Short attention spans?
  6. Superiority is an ugly thing, especially on the interwebz in the middle of a pandemic with an idiot in charge.
  7. That or zombie seeds....
  8. Lol. No, but forget that dinner invitation...
  9. Once upon a time I was a serious brass picker. I've still got a bunch and an adequate amount of loaded.
  10. Drink the Irish and put on a skirt. It'll work out fine.
  11. Crazy prices. Having lived through the Obamazination I'm adequately prepared. Let me say again, learn to reload. I'm still seeing an asston of empty brass on the ground.
  12. You should get out more.
