Re: Logging me out...???

I had the same thing happen to me today as I was clearing some forums. I eventually saw the check box and the problem went away.

Re: Monday... Trump in J.C.

I had to park about a mile and a half from Freedom Hall and got there around 4:45PM. When we got to Freedom Hall, the line to get in stretched about a mile down the road and around a turn. It was unbelievable. For the record, I did a bad thing. My son and I slipped into a group and essentially cut i...

Re: Whats up with this absurd amount of spam?

Well, the mods don't get paid. We get abused and derided by some for putting them back in line for being assholes. When I get notified by a report, I step in and clean up what I can. If there is a flood of posts, I defer it to Robert as it is easier for him to delete the account. All that said, it's...

Well, that might make some people happy, but getting a letter from the ATF asking if the responsible person on my FFL renewal was deceased caught my wife by surprise.

Re: Self Defense against dogs, case of unreasonable dog owner

As an avid cyclist, I see this dog owner behavior regularly. You spray or kick someone's dog that is in the road trying to bite you and the owners get all pissy about it. But, sometimes it works out well... My friend Dave had an encounter recently. Dog was unharmed but in slo mo it is darn funny see...

Tinfoil territory or close to the mark

Tinfoil hat conspiracy? Perhaps. But I believe in keeping an ear to the ground and staying keenly aware of the little rumbl...

Got my first SKS from them. It was decently priced at the time and before I had my C&R. They also had cheap ammunition. That was well before Barry came along. As for Cabela's, Bass Pro Shops has bought them. We have one of each a few miles apart here. The market is tightening in outdoor stores. No I...

Re: Obama kicks gunowners on last day with ammo ban

The thing that sucks is how it is interpreted. It states that it is the use that is restricted not necessarily possession. I cycle through a lot of federal land and I always carry when I do as you can run into some strange folks out and about.

The first thought that came to mind was state debt. Illinois and California both have extreme debt. A GDP to debt ration would be quite telling.

Re: 300 blackout build complete

Fantastic workmanship. I am curious to any effect that the baffle alignment might have on accuracy. I wonder, if the cutouts were aligned with bullet rotation based on rifling (1 in 12 as an example), would that induce some wobble. Alternately if they were random or opposite of the the rifling.

Re: lathe coolant systems

I have used Kool Mist in the past. 1 gallon goes a long way. IIRC it is a wax based lubricant and the water acts as the coolant piece of the equation. The wax melts at the point of contact between the tool and the piece. I have an old fuel pump that feeds to a magnetic base with flexible nozzles. It...

I would imagine that well to do California liberals are filtering to Nevada thus bringing their failed beliefs with them. We are seeing that here in deep red Tennessee with New England types coming here and pulling the same thing.

As I always advise. Buy the biggest lathe that you can afford and store. My first was a Craftsman/Atlas 12"x36" that I picked up for about $900.00. I sold it and bought a Hendey 12"x36" 1 ton monster. The key is to watch craigslist and be patient. I am doing that right now as I look for a small lath...
