  3. Interesting range brass pickup

    Recently while sorting some range brass I ran across the following: Sorry for the fuzzy macro photo. It is a 9mm case that looks like it was fired from a 40 S&W chamber. The 9mm case had expanded to about .426 and is split. I wonder if the person who shot it was even aware what he did...
  4. How many of you are still without power since Irene?

    We lost power about 11:45 AM on Sunday and the latest word is it will be a couple more days. I wonder who will go the longest without power. Sure glad we have an 8KW generator.
  5. I found a gold mine, er a lead mine today

    I have mined lead at my local range and have tried several methods of extracting the lead from the debris (dirt, sand, wood chips, shotgun shells, etc.) but recently I have been placing my targets at the lower part of the berm and then at the end of the session I would recover the lead that I...

  8. Another reason to hate the .40

  10. Took some new people to the shop

    A couple of friends have shown interest in my reloading so I invited them over for a session. First we cast a batch of 400g flat nose bullets. One of them really liked filling the mold so he did most of the casting. Then we progressed to the sizer/lubricator and lubed a few of the bullets...

  13. Foam for gun case

    I am going to build a carry case for a rifle. Finding foam for the case is an issue. Internet searches reveal places I can get foam but I don't know how to tell if the foam is the right density (stiffness). A trip to Jo-Anne Fabrics was disappointing. They have foam but it is too soft and a...
  14. Red Cars are dangerous

    While on a road trip my seven year old granddaughter made the observation; "Why are all the cars that are pulled over red?" If this is an accurate observation, does it say something about people who choose red cars or does it say something about police profiling?

  16. Poll: How do you carry your iPhone, Droid, or other large screen phone?

    I am thinking of getting an HTC Incredible but I have a history of being rough on cell phones. I currently am carrying the ruggedized Verizon phone on a belt clip and it is pretty beaten up. My greatest concern about a smartphone is how to carry it without destroying it. How do you carry...
