Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: Uss Truman

The latest plans are to overwhelm the defenses with numbers and speed. The airborne laser system hasn't been talked about much, but you cannot keep a 747 on station at sea too long. I think it is effective range is 300 miles, but it is designed to strike rockets in boost phase. 30 missiles tops is i...

Re: Mosin replica made by Keystone in .22

I thought people were overcharging for those...I mean anything over $200 seems high.

Re: Uss Truman

I also heard from the deputy sec of defense on GZERO with Ian Bremmer about inadequate range of the carrier air groups combined with a lack of longer ranged/modern stand off weapons, so why keep the Truman commissioned and pay for a multi-billion dollar overhaul if it is no longer a threat to a conv...

Re: Forming and sizing Bertram 43 Beaumont brass

Yeah, Bertram Brass really didn't do its job on this. 43 Beaumont has never been a straight walled cartridge and never will be, but they did engrave the base/rim with "43 Beaumont" anyways. I've heard from another SRF member that he doesn't even accept Bertram Brass as a gift it is so bad. Sorry Ber...

Re: Uss Truman

The carrier air group lacks the range to defeat long range missile defenses and the navy needs long range stand off weapons. There is talk of the air force giving the navy its B-1 fleet and equipping them with long range missiles as a land based attack force. The Russians and Chinese now make missil...

Re: Mosin replica made by Keystone in .22

Real SMLE trainers in .22lr run about $600. Norinco used to make a .22lr 98K.

The current.22lr M1 carbine is built by Citadel or Cimmaron I think. It is semi-auto.

Re: Mosin replica made by Keystone in .22

There are already M1 carbines in .22lr and I think they are currently in production. Now, a M1 Garand would be nice. Why not just get your kid a Mossberg 44US instead? That's what the GI's trained on. Cheaper than those Comblock .22lr trainers these days and far better made.

Re: What pistol to get?

Decent nickel plating job for once. Nobody seems to shoot .32 caliber in a pistol, so I bet you got a decent deal. Should be an excellent gun.

Re: Political correctness?

Perhaps you didn't notice the nazi flags along side that CSA battle flag at the Charlttesville protest of CSA monuments. Were you blind or just dumb? People died to get rid of that flag too. You really dishonor a lot of vets with that remark, not to mention others.

Ummh, a lot of people died to get rid of that flag, lest you have all forgotten that. Now if you aren't white, I cannot see anybody not in the fringe having much good to say about it at all. Out side of the old CSA, nobody thinks well of what that flag represented for good reason. Now snowflakes, do...

Re: Forming and sizing Bertram 43 Beaumont brass

I have the dies and have formed this brass with 50-90 Sharps. I once had a problem with Jamison 43 Mauser brass and had to anneal it and then run it through my dies. Your cases might need annealing as well and it really doesn't hurt them if done right. I'll send you a PM shortly. Best Regards, Marj

Wow, mine is a well worn police turn in but, it is mechanically in great shape with a pristine bore. I'll take function over form most any time. My gun book says, "The Smith and Wesson Model 10 was one of the most successful revolver designs ever." Book says about 7 million were produced, with 6 mil...

Re: What pistol to get?

I got a S&W model 10 in 38 special with a 4" bull barrel with fixed sights. Not state of the art, but a classic revolver. I believe there are tons of them out in use. It does hit what it aims at and I'm no great shot. Best Regards, Mark BTW, there is always the 1892 8mm Lebel French Revolver. Nothin...

Wow, you got a mould for that thing. I am not worthy. Where did you get it? Those aren't easy to find. Those pistols definitely have character few others have.

BTW, Next you will want a Ruby pistol.
