  1. A while ago, a years or so a police officer came up with the idea of using a blue light bulb in the porch light to show support for the police officers that were shot. This was before the war on police started. I think it time to bring back the idea and spread it across the USA With the new LED bulbs, they give a lot of light and use little electricity. I leave ours on 24/7 you can see it blocks away in either direction. If you like the idea please pass it on.

  5. While at the LGS checking to see if they replenished the 50% off bin I came across the perfect bullion gift for the grandson was born on the fourth of July. he will be 3 by the sunshine mint Can see belt buckles in the furure.
  6. Thanks I'm first reusing, re-purposing,recycling items I have on hand. I don't have a printer big enough to print 24"x30" and I shot at a indoor range. Which the target trolley's aren't known for their speed Plus the added benefit that it is making wifey happier that stuff ids being used and will no longer taking space in the shop and house.
  7. Here is my version of home made multi targets. IN a past life I painted signage and banners, along with building magic and props and FX for shows clowns and magicians. Which in a practical world means that I ended up with an excess amount of half full or less of paint spray cans and other wise. Along with large sheets of a heavy weight paper and rolls of brown and white paper. Since I'm dealing with sorting out and disposing of my parents belongings. Wife and I decided to lighten the load of stuff we have a culminated. Since the local indoor range I'm a member has changed their policy on no more cardboard targets, I decided to use up the lft over stuff. Made up two stencils from manila folder stock, One from a coffee can lid about 6"plus dia and another around 3 3/4" lid. Spray painted them on the paper for a background color to place the dots on. You will have to wipe the excess paint off the stencils each time if the build up is heavy, and the reverse after a number of dots when it starts to bleed under. I use two different colors per sheet I then let them dry When I'm finished with the stack, I apply the dots. I went thru the shooting spares/junk box and pulled out all C-N-C and self stickies and used them up. After this batch I went to amazon to find some target spots on rolls in different sizes. Mega-Pack-Stickers-Adhesive-Targets-Wholesale Mega-Pack-4-Inch-Target-Stickers-Roll Pink-Color-Coding-Labels-Round I picked out 3 different sizes The target ones you get one roll free when you buy one. Since it isn't clear how many on each roll I will post when they get here tomorrow. with the guarantee and the free bees sure beats the big box sporting goods joints.
  8. Due to a question on another forum I put together an expanded list for people to use. For loading data, firearms outdoors, hunting, military etc. A word and caution about buying used books on amazon, Be careful as a lot of the "dealers" selling out of print books think because they are they are worth a ransom. generally they aren't. Here are some other sources on the net, this one is great for price comparisons AddALL book search and price comparison this one is just the search AddALL Used and Out of Print book search A couple more good ones Alibris - Books You Thought You'd Never Find / Used, Rare, and Out-of-Print Books Powell's Bookstore-used, new, and out of print books Here is a trade group if you are interested in a real classic Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America || Home For new and more current books on all subjects that are sold at up too 80% off this is the place. They currenly have 113 titles in firearms and knives then more in Hunting,outdoors and military EdwardRHamilton.com And finally For thoses that may not want to buy a book here is worldcat a catalog of the worlds libraries contents, may not be all of them but there will be one near you. [WorldCat.org] Search for books, music, videos, articles and more in libraries near you Don't forget google's print on demand book service for out of print books along with there online storage of out of copyright books and print books. they generally are a lot cheaper than the originals. Then there is this Internet Archive: Digital Library of Free Books, Movies, Music & Wayback Machine

    Tumbler Media

    Here my cheap media separator Got mine at the regional version of Wally World. you can use one or two and you can clamp the handles to keep it together. make sure you have a lot of holes and they are large When using one colender you can move the media around with one hand. I use the nitrile gloves to avoid any lead dust or powder/primer residue.

    Tumbler Media

    Lizard litter at big box pet supply or on line cheaper than the stuff sold by the reloader brands. Cut up a USED dry sheet into strips I fold em in half then cut into quarters. The purpose is to collect the dust and dirt that comes off the brass, You don't need fresh sheets as they don't work any better. But before that I add nu finish acrylic car polish to the media run the tumbler with out brass for 5/15 minutes to break up clumps caused by the polish. I generally add it to media after the last batch after removing the brass and then run my hand thru it to break up the clumps before the next run. I also de prime the brass before I tumble. Depending on how you are about what you want your brass looks like you can do it longer. I have had 3 of the horrible fright 5 pounders since they started to carry them, over the years. they are worth it for the price. Since they vibrate. some will walk across the table bench etc.I solved that problem with one section of the floor mats that have holes in them will take a photo and post if I can tomorrow. Or you can place it in a plastic milk case and it will stop the movement. If my brass is real bad after depriming, I run it thru a couple of cycles of my ultrasonic cleaner, heater on and the solution is water and simple green. Then when dry I do the tumbling but for a shorter time. There are any number of ways that people do the dry tumbling and what additives they use. The only wrong way to do it with brass is NEVER use an ammonia based brass cleaner since it attacks the zinc in the brass and can cause early splitting etc.
