You too gwegg.
Still a dick by the way .. Whats up with the yab there pard.. ya milking the beave till it goes mooo or what.. Hey by the way those pics cost me 87cents in postage..So i expect one to be framed above the fireplace (get one damn it) in the Vaquero residance..
We finally got the kind of weather I'm accustomed to this time of year. About 60f, very slight breeze, full sun. So with what daylight I had left I headed to the range. All I had on me was the 1911 and 2 full mags so I didn't plan on staying long. I decided to work on weak hand and one hand. When I got there a couple of other guys were there. I'd never met them but who cares? They were blasting away with 1911's. Long story short, they don't re-load and I got (estimate) 600+ once fired brass to boot! Life is good.
Anybody far enough north to see the northern lights? LBC?
Pard, the yab is moving along as expected. Still looks like late Feb, early March for completion.
I can just see you looking at all the uncollected 45 acp stuff and smiling.. Did they ask you, or did you ask them.. guessing you brought it up first.. You deserve a break for working thru the weekend Lee.. im happy for ya pard.. Hey so what are you doing for bullets..
You doing any lead at all.. Those rounds that i shot last were 185 in a jacket, but semi wad cutter.. pretty close to the "PP's" (why didn't we think how that would abbreviate) ..serious what sorta bullet do you use..
Daisy.. didn't i hear you say you cast your own bullets.. talk to us lou.. time for me to order some big padre plinkers..
You said: "Daisy.. didn't i hear you say you cast your own bullets.. talk to us lou.. time for me to order some big padre plinkers.."
Yes, I had about 300lb of lead ballast from my sloop. I bought a production pot, molds and assorted shiite from Midway.
I took one of the 75# ballast bars to a machine shop, the guy proceeded to wreck his band saw cutting it for me. Fine blade did not work too well.
Anyway, casting my own was fun and almost economical. Almost because I did not cast 93,000,000 bullets :<)
I moved to town, had no place to set up so handed all that stuff to a bro-in-law.
On the CME thing.. yeah this is big stuff.. not the damage that they talked about, and guess thats good.. but did want to see some northern lights out of the deal..
Ok.. who listens to Coast to Coast at night.. got any fans out there..For those who are indoctrinated this is the late night radio talk show that has topics that are pretty interesting, and yep, go from tin foil hats, to UFO's, to things that go bump in the night.. It is worth a listen if you've never checked it out.. Go AM and it's syndicated everywhere..
The same outfit that made the PP's makes .45 in 185, 200 and 230gr.
Around 70.00 per thousand. They are about 80 miles east of home so I go and get 'em (save shipping) and V likes some of the shopping and dining there too.
I aint quite made my mind up on which to get.
What do you think?
225 would be my pick Lee.. The 185 is exactly the same mold that i was shooting last time out. The deal is these were Jacketed, and i did have two FF.. I didn't say anything about this, as i had fired the jacketed ball 260 rounds with out a hitch, and was almost expecting to have a FF, sure enough, two of them.. "but" these were jacketed as opposed to lead so i'd be a little cautious there. I didn't check to see if the site had a review link.. guessing they do.. Anyway that 225 round looks like it would go up the "fussiest" ram.. Ok.
If your planing on bringing some PP's along on the AZ trip, then im planing to pay for them, and WOW this time without shipping, and brass at pick up... tall cotton for sure..
I'm laughing now. Not about the bullets. It's the (Paul Harvey voice) rest of the story.
Old saying around these parts. When a feller hit it rich or was doing well for himself he was said to be "shittin' in high cotton".
Oh man, how old am I?
/ バーバリー アウトレット says hi. Still a dick. ROFL!
Love the F Bomb thing too. Tall cotton.
Ah, good stuff.
Watch these guys for me if ya don't mind.
I'm wore out and got a full day of translating tomorrow.
The crew that is processing the transformer is from Oregon since 1993, Romania before that.
Oddly enough, I'm the one who can figure out what they are trying to say.
(Kinda like Greg and Bill)
Sleep well. Talk to you tomorrow.
