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: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

ACCURACY: You are dog-gone right, polished brass will shoot better than the uncleaned brass, probable. One doesn’t have to be an Einstein to figure this out. It is called ‘Pride in workmanship’. Chances are, CHANCES ARE, if one takes the time to do this, they will also take more time in preparing th...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Oh heck, it doesn’t sound too bad. Yes, ordered to shoot people...if. Well it was like this...It was May. 1953...The Korean Conflict was going hot and heavy. Have you heard of the ‘Peter Principle’? I attribute a whole lot of this incident to this, ‘Peter Principle.’ To me it was down right ridiculo...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Yes, of course, but why are there so many people that have guns...shoot guns, that don’t understand this? How can something so innately basic be so hard to understand by anyone that is out-and-about on the streets and not locked up in some insane asylum? And, and....no matter how that rifle will sho...

SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

The forum title does say for Shooters & Collectors but I gather that most of the concern is of ‘Collectors’. But just let me throw out some my Hits & Misses of my thoughts on Shooting. Don’t even begin to think that I am saying that anything that I may say is in any way correct or an only way to loo...

Re: IN PASSING & FWTW

Did everyone see that drone incident with the Venezuelan president. I can assume that it may have been a warning with the explosion off target to ‘Get out of Dodge or else’. This is going to put politicians on notice through out the world. Anyone can learn to fly a drone in ten minutes. I use to bel...

IN PASSING & FWTW

Years ago there was a reloading type of thing that was used in target shooting and probable in general. It was where the case was filled with the powder charge and a wad inserted to keep the powder in, the bullet was inserted into the chamber and then the case with the powder was inserted right behi...

MORE FUN THAN......

I am seeing more about that Amazon drone delivery service on the news and I realize that the guy is now the richest person in the world, but, but...so there is no doubt of his keen business sense but how about some of the common type. Undoubtedly he is aware of this and has thought it through, so I ...

Re: TOO BAD

I would like to add my opinion on the some of the over-loaded top-riding India train videos....of course I don’t know for sure but I think that some were staged as photo op publicity stunts. Again, just my opinions. But for sure they do look at things way differently than we would here.

Re: TOO BAD

This is dated 2009. They have been more modernized since then but this is the way they were all of the time that I was there. There were basically two tracks making a big circle in Manila, one for going clockwise and the other for going counter clockwise. Notice the little rail taxis. https://www.yo...

Re: TOO BAD

This may give one new meaning to over crowded trains. I saw the people riding on top all of time in India but I never saw it this bad. I saw the special little railing on the sides of the cars where people would hang on with the trains whizzing along at 50 miles an hour. Some people just have to do ...

Re: TOO BAD

One who may not have spent too much time out of the states may wonder about some of these things. I have been to Thailand a few time but before this new modern idea. Can one realize just why something like this would be so popular? https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=train+market+bangkok+video&&vie...

Re: TOO BAD

One time I wrote to the ATF and ask about using a 2 x 2 x 5 foot enclosure lined with the regular foam for noise abatement in shooting experiments and the guy that answered just didn’t want to make it clear whether in was okay or not. Now dog gone it, if I was doing the answering, I am pretty sure t...

Re: TOO BAD

By the way, although I can think that I can read pretty well, but this in no way implies that I can in anyway decipher just how others of authority will interpret gun laws be they ATF, federal, state, county or city. As far as I am concerned they all do these things so no one will know exactly just ...

GOOD GOLLY - But Mark Twain said to believe nothing that you read and only half of what you see....but this says that no one should go to bed without eating some Zeolite. Maybe good for your rifle bore, good for you and good for your pets and good for your drinking water. I guess I will just have to...

Re: TOO BAD

Oh heck, here is two pounds of Zeolite for 5 $ - enough to polish maybe a thousand bores. The cheaper stuff at Home Depot for the water softeners I would I expect to be of larger grit size and I wouldn't use it. I haven't tried Zeolite though. It may be too soft to do anything quick enough...for me....
