  1. Chestnut Trees or ???

    there are several types of chestnut in new england. the rarest is the american chestnut, the edible one. the inedible one is the horse chestnut but is uncommon. the most common is the chinese chestnut (not sure on edibility). and there are others. you may have to wait for the fruit to bear...
  2. Good Video: ATF: 'Is it a rifle, pistol, shotgun, or felony?'

    I'm at the point where I can no longer keep up with the interpretations of the changing laws. seems like there's about to be two types of people in the US ...... those illegally in possession of a firearm, those without one. then you got the government. they have f16's .... biden said so.
  3. Reloading bench size

    space is no issue. ergonomics are the key to it all. all of the above pics have no knee room under the bench. you cannot be seated close enough and will always be bending over/forward. bench size is all about the workspace you need to do what you do. the above pics are perfect examples of how...
  4. An M1 Garand question.

    1st. don't do anything to it !!! (until long after you hash out what you have). if this was your buddies wartime-take-home rifle, you have a piece of american heritage. 2nd. head over to the CMP Garand forum : CMP Forums start this same conversation there. they like pics more then...
  5. white screen flash

    I've been seeing something similar. my screen is not the blank white though and I think I have since figured out the funk. my symptom was seen upon entering a website ... I would get a "Q" on my screen literally the size of the screen. I had no idea what it was. I figured the Q-enun dudes were...
  6. A smoked Colt Navy...

    There's general trouble with electrolysis. Zapping the metal to have it shed it's rust is also altering the metallurgical nature of the metal. I don't exactly know what that is but have been warned by a few materials engineers to avoid electrolysis on metals that were specifically designed...
  7. A smoked Colt Navy...

    why do anything with it? right now, it looks like a piece of art to me.
  8. Fisher cat problem

    here in CT they are regulated and illegal to hunt. however, should you be a trapper and take one, that's fine, hypocritical, but fine. so I suggest you look up your MA trapping regulations to see what the state has to say when a trap takes a fisher. likely they have it defined. your best bet is...
  9. Thank you NES Democrats ..for nothing

    Seems to me the fed should be levying suits on to states for any gun control laws they enact. But why enforce federal law when you can claim "laws in addition" are not in fact violation of the law themselves? i.e. MA still allows guns so the feds would never ensure MA provide guns to level the...
  10. RCBS Berdan depriming tool.....broke on 8th casing.

    The piece that broke is a part that looks easily replaced. that is if you know how to remove a pin. I vote with the "RCBS will stand behind it" camp. Though I recommend that user discretion is needed. just like de-priming pins. Berdan in general aren't all that bad. Bully out the primer...
  11. School me on AK's.

    my experience has been like that of the proverbial boat owner's best days... the day ya buy it and the day ya sell it. the norinco I had couldn't hold a lousy 18" group at 25 yards, for real. but untill this thread, I had not heard of the "cant" issue. that could explain the grouping.
  12. Tumbling or ultra sonic for cleaning?

    I once had the displeasure to get something burning ejected from the shell landing my the back of my neck. when it happened again, I was able to squash the ember and see the material was the compacted dust of walnut tumbling medium. The dust (maybe also actual walnut particles) had somehow...
  13. Preppers, what did you forget?

    I've got everything I may need or want ... the one thing missing in all of this is a real for honest, god forsaken apocalypse. bad prepper? ... no doomsday for you!
  14. How to match a scope to a rifle

    I'd start with listing the basic characteristics of a scope. then narrow down to which are most important either for you or the intended platform. then you can get an idea of what to look for and where. following that comes the questions. magnification (variable mag?) field of view Minute of...
  15. How to tell who or how many are "watching" a thread.

    1st off, I about blew an eye out laughing on this point. "Welcome to MA!" 2nd, I was unable to find the info that 'cams' previously lists, the "Users who are viewing this forum". I'm on windoze PC browser. I'll keep looking, maybe it's in a forum "category" and not a forum "thread" ? 3rd...
  16. Range bag recommendations

    Hold on ... 10 years with the same bag? go get another on just like it, just a bit bigger. a bag is a bag is a bag. go to wallmart, get a similar bag just bigger. at it's cost, in a few years if it craps out, buy another cheapy. all these I see with specialized bags got nothing more than a...
  17. How Patients Answered, "Do you have access to guns?" prior to Suicide Death

    I think the point of debate had more to do with the health care profession (as in doctor office visits) assessing suicide concerns on the basis of "their questioning" access to firearms. at this point, it's been said here a few times, on the male internalization of psychological discontent...
  18. Theme song

    WOW ... thanks 'Zappa' for the F. Zappa performance. a true artist. as for the rest of ya .... you're giving me flashbacks and surfacing past trauma.... "Bannana Splits" ... I never knew what that was till today (cause back then we didn't have the inter-knowledge-web). Here's my Theme ... the...
  19. Biden announces plan to fund LEAs, enforce laws against FFLs, create "strike force[s]"

    You and too many are missing how it's done. the "gang" orginization is not that foolish to pass up legitimate permitted people sympathetic to their cause. arrest free girl friends, mothers, wives are the first to come to mind. but I also bet that they groom many constiuents to go crime free so...
  20. Semi Shotguns .... worth having more than one?

    Other is for really really close zombies. the kind show up just on the otherside of a sheetrock wall.
