  1. I only crimp my .38's enough to remove the case flair, but I shoot them in a S&W 686, which is a heavy gun and being a 357 mag has some room in the cylinder if a bullet tended to walk out a little. While I go nuts with case prep, measurement, powder, distance to lands, etc. for my rifle loads. I tend to pick a near bottom load with whatever powder I have and stick with it for my target/plinking loads for my pistols.
  2. Found it on Spotify yesterday and shared it with my children, they loved it! I am sure my son's circle of right wing friends will love it as well.
  3. Thanks for sharing, my daughter was planning on traveling to Greece when she graduates college in May. we may have to rethink that!
  4. I have a Ruger SR22 and Thunderbolts start keyholing after 200-300 rounds. I need to clean the lead out after every 200 rounds or so and I am good to go.
  5. Great looking dog and great hunt at 11 months old!
  6. A very brief range report. I purchased the Vortex Diamondback Tactical 4-16x44 FFP EBR-2C MOA and mounted it to my AR-15. My gun is a budget build that I pieced together a few years ago with a Delton lower receiver, PSA parts kit with an AeroPrecision upper. For the price point I really like the scope (I found it for $349 on sale), clearer than I expected and tracks well when adjusting both elevation and windage. Bore scoped the rifle and was on paper with the firat shot at 50 yards, had the scope zeroed 2 shots later. I only shot out to 100 yards due to time, as I try and get a half hour or so of shooting before work on Fridays. My gun is probably around a 2- 2.5MOA shooter, hopefully I can get a bit more accuracy out of reloads bit I am not disappointed at all. Definitely a very good scope for the $$$. Thanks!
  7. I ordered the Vortex Diamondback Tactical 4-16x44 FFP EBR-2C MOA. Can I ask what rings you used? Thanks!
  8. Thanks for the info, this looks like a solid scope. How do you like the FFP? I only have a FFP scope on one of my rifles and am just now getting used to it. I may be a bit old school as I had learned to use a moderately powered scope and always have it on on the highest magnification when milling or using the subtensions for holdover.
  9. I have an AR that I built, 223/556, nothing fancy but it shoots well for me. I have a red-dot on it now and can hit a 8 inch plate consistently at 300 yards. I am thinking about putting a scope on it and am looking for some recommendations, I would like to punch paper out to 300 yards. I am currently using Vortex Vipers of one sort or another on most of my rifles, and they work fine, so I was thinking about going that route but would like to hear what others recommend. I have a Night force on my 6.5 CM, but I don't think I need that much for this gun. I would like to spend less than a grand, much less if possible. Thanks, .
  10. So, where do you take your vegetarian daughter for dinner while on a college tour...St. Elmo's Steakhouse. Had a fantastic dry aged tomahawk rib eye, definitely one of the best steaks I ever had!
  11. If I am not mistaken, once you list your car, and provide that vehicle's license plate number, if you do happen to go through an EZ pass toll without the transponder, or if it fails to read the transponder, it will simply charge your account based on where it read the plate number. There will not be any penalty charged.
  12. I am still about a year out, my son will be a senior in HS this year, but once he is off to college we are good to go. I left my corporate job this spring after 22 years for a remote job, honing a skill set that allows me to work remotely. 14 months and counting!
  13. Thanks, but actually his lacrosse equipment is probably the foulest smelling item you could imagine and that has started to take over the smoke smell!
  14. My son graduates high school next summer, we are good to go any time after that. Depending on the market I may put the house up next fall.
  15. Welcome aboard Frank!
  16. Thanks Bomber, it will be going to a detailer this week, apparently they will shampoo everything including the interior ceiling!
  17. My son finally found a used truck he could afford, a 2010 F150 with only 80K miles. The truck is in great shape all around, except the previous owner was a smoker. Anyone know how to get rid of the smoke smell? So far I have tried: 1- Several iterations of carpet fresh, sprinkle it down, wait, vacuum 2-Wiping everything down with regular cleaner, then Febreze, then vinegar & water, then Fantastic 3- Turning on the AC and circulating various cleaners through the air intake- there are no cabin air filters as far as I can tell 4- Leaving containers of vinegar in the car over night 5- Sprinkling baking soda around, letting it sit and then vacuuming 6- Spraying Febreze onto the seats, doors, dash, carpet Thanks!
  18. Does this work for marijuana laws as well?
  19. I am outside of Washington DC today on a business trip, none of the gas stations around here have any gas. Most were overrun last night with panic buyers.
  20. He wants a truck, prefers a full size but would take a mid size if we can find one.
