Re: Are you brave enough?

The cognitive dissonance necessary for Democrats to at once decry "privilege" by shouting at some lady that her double-wide is a symbol of white supremacy while ignoring the fact that the Clintons and Bidens exist outside of the law is impressive. Most cults would be glad to have that leve...

Re: Nobody but Trans Secy Pete Buttigieg

I wouldn't care at all how he gets to work, whether by monster truck, helicopter, bike, on foot, crawling, jet pack, pogo stick, et c., EXCEPT that he wants to legislate how plebs like us get to use energy (yes....he wants to direct the legislature controlled by his boss's party on what to enact).

Re: Gun Ownership vs Homicide rate - World

Japan's justice system is not like ours. In Japan, when a crime is committed, the cops go and find whomever they think did it and then interrogate that person until they confess. There is something like a 97% conviction rate in their courts, tied largely to this practice (Federal prosecutions here, ...

Re: Making a bullet alloy

I've repeatedly wondered if it's worth it to get into copper bullet casting. I assume that there would be a machining step involved, but the end result could be a very high quality projectile. Copper would be tough to cast - I assume you mean making something like an FMJ, swaging a lead core into a...

Re: Wet-tumbling brass on the cheap

I find that for getting the nasty off of range/bulk brass, pins are unmatched. However, for getting a really polished finish, pin tumbling doesn't finish the job. For range ammo, I just use the pins, but for stuff that I care about, I pin tumble and then vibrate in walnut shells. It's a little more ...

Re: MOLLY coated lead

Every time someone tells me about how lead is clean and cheap if you do it correctly, I notice that when I do it just isn't. I had to run another guy's reloads at a match awhile back, and the lead buildup on my compensator is a palpable ridge after one match. The cost of Hornady bulk 115 grain HAP i...

Re: Nobody but Art Acevedo

Art's only priority is Art. For all of his bluster about caring for the community, it stops the second that it might require personal accountability. I will go ahead and assume that he's leaving before the ugly truth about Goines' corruption comes out.

Re: GA: 3 separate mass shootings targeting Asians in Atlanta

I sincerely believe that the frequency of these attacks would decrease if the news coverage were limited to "this bad thing happened" without referencing the name of the accused followed by a small blurb when that person is convicted and another when they're executed. For all of the media ...

Re: Anti gun measures in Texas for 2021

I have no ability to communicate with this person. She has no common values with me and I reject her facts and her ability to reason with them.
