12 years ago today

is when I accidentally shot myself in my right leg with a .45. It was negligence, not an accident. Guys at Glocktalk collected some money for me and I used that money to start a web site about it, and my Lee reloading site and this forum. Here is my web page about it. http://negligentdischarge.com

Cap and ball revolvers

I inherited a cap and ball replica revolver. I am reading up all I can on it, but does anyone know of any good books on these weapons?

Does anyone here shoot them?

Re: Where is everyone?

There are also "bots" which search engines use to scan web sites for updates to their databases. There are 7 of these that have been here this month, 3 already today.They show up as guests.

Re: Where is everyone?

I had one forum that non-members could post in - the one about how to register for the forums. I just looked at it and it had over 4,400 posts - posted by "guests" and selling "medicines". I just deleted the whole damn forum, it would have been too much work to delete the posts o...

No posts or comments since December 17. Is the board still working?

Re: Berry's bullets - load data

I looked up loads for lead and plated bullets and split the difference. I had a chronograph at the time, so I could check and adjust if necessary.

I later shot the chronograph with my AK47. Accidentally, of course.

Re: New Lee Progressive Press?

That's an interesting press. Like the LM, a very unique design.

I read the linked PDFs. It looks like it can be set up for fully automatic operation except the priming. It looks like you must place a primer in the primer cup for each round.

Re: Rusting Dies

An oily rag or an SOS pad. The first may give them protection against rusting again.

Re: Hi Folks from Italy !

My family wasn't interested in guns, but I bought a .22 bolt action rifle and a 20 gauge shotgun from a friend of my brother when I was about 14 years old. I still have the .22, I don't know what happened to the shotgun. I think I sold it back to the guy. After I got married I bought a cheap .38 rev...

Mystery tool

I found this with my gun cleaning equipment. I have no idea what it is, what it is used for, and I have no recollection of buying it.

What the heck is it?

Re: IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT PHOTOS

I don't know. There is no harm. Hopefully they won't notice. ALL of the photos in the loadmaster PB account were posted here - what they call third party hosting, which is why it got flagged. Let's see what happens with your photos, if anything. The answer may be for everyone to upload their photos ...
