Re: Australia: Another object lesson in don't give up your firearms

not sure what concerns me most,

# the fact that this is even happening in a 'democracy'

or

# the likelihood that there may be people in this country who don't see a problem with these draconian abuses of power

Re: .357 Mag Powder

If you're after magnum loads, I have used Blue Dot with standard primers with no problems. Top I do as well. Be aware that Alliant no longer recommends Blue Dot in 357 magnum with 125gr bullets due to pressure concerns. Heavier bullets are fine (I generally only load 158gr in 357 magnum). reference...

Re: .357 Mag Powder

My understanding was that 2400 needed magnum primers, having researched more I see in Alliant's data that is not the case.
I use 2400 without magnum primers without a problem.

I'd like to pay for her repair - can you contact me?

Re: Costco prohibit carry - No signs posted

PLEASE resist the impulse to educate business owners/managers so that they know more efficiently how to keep ALL of us out of their stores!! Just STOP it. If they don’t know that their signs have no value, too dang bad. It's their JOB to know. It's NOT your job to help them figure out how to infrin...

Re: Are Ham radios becoming like guns in CA?

Get the free software CHIRP to program the radio.
I suggest checking the Chirp supported radio list *before* buying a radio:

Re: What Joe Biden Thinks About Guns

well, maybe not 'issues', but I Joe & I might agree that:

(a) we don't want Bernie as president
(b) Joe shouldn't own an AR-15

Re: Corona Virus (2019-nCoV) from China: Its going to be bad.

I was at Target, out of large hand sanitizer.
Walmart doesn’t even have travel size hand sanitizer.
Went to Amazon- out of stock

better off with home made hand sanitizer anyway:

Re: Early Voting

I looked at both ballots on line just to see what's up and the propositions are night and day different and then the weirdest thing- Pres candidates- Roque "Rocky" de la Feunta is on both the R and D ballots. How does that work?

I read somewhere that one is the father and the other is the son.
