    Cell phone tones

    Rock and Roll Never Forgets, by Seger. For about 20 years now...since I first got a phone you could set the ring tone on.

    Marlin Bullets

    It's been slicked and smoothed. Lighter springs and such. Was owned by a local shooter who went with a '73. I was very surprised when they fed. Honestly, I've only shot a few dozen through it, and not at match speed, but there were not any hangups.

    Marlin Bullets

    Not arguing that. My '73 won't even discuss feeding SWC, and I've had two other Marlins and a Rossi that wouldn't feed anything but the TC or RNFP worth a dang.

    Marlin Bullets

    I just picked up a 2009 Marlin Cowboy Limited 20" 38/357. I tried a few SWC bullets in it, expecting to have to "jiggle" them around to get them in the chamber. Much to my surprise, the dang things fed as smoothly as my TC or RNFP loads. I'm not going to chance them in competition, but for backyard plinking and pest eradication duties, they're going to get serious consideration, as I have several thousand set back from my PPC shooting days.

    Late adopter

    A family friend went to work at a small store in the late 50s. It was a mom and pop style store, but the owner had grand plans. The owner offered to buy and supply several other stores, and make a select group of trusted employees, including our friend, a manager and stock holder. He declined, and returned to our home town and bought a sporting goods store, where he's made a comfortable living. The small store owner was Sam Walton, and every employee who took him up on that first offer is now a multi millionaire, mostly due to the stock options that came with those first stores.

    Need input on a F250 with 6.2 gas engine

    Neither my current truck, nor this anticipated one will fit in my car port. This one would be about 2 feet longer than my Chevy. Thanks for the reminders about the wheels and the parking. I had forgotten about those.

    Need input on a F250 with 6.2 gas engine

    After spending 5 weeks dealing with my 2010 Chevy in the shop, I'm a little gunshy about it. I've been wanting to upgrade from a 1/2 ton to a 3/4 ton for a while, as the camper I have is at the top of what the 1/2 ton comfortably pulls. I've found a local, one owner trade in 2016 Ford F250 Superduty. It's a 4x4, base model (rubber floormats, vinyl seats). It has the 6.2 gas engine, and a perfect car fax indicating regular service at the dealership where it was purchased in 2016. Odometer is at 72,000 miles. This is a crew cab truck with the long bed. I haven't had a Ford pickup in a while. So I'm needing input on that 6.2 engine, and the general overall reliability of that engine/drive train. I already know I can expect between 11 and 16 mpg, but the Chevy I have now don't do much better.

    Which do you do?

    Long guns (plural) hammer down, empty chamber, safety off. Semi Auto handguns, chambered, cocked and locked (yep, 1911s) Revolvers, DA, full cylinders.

    Alabama State Championship - Shootout at Cavern Cove

    The only squib I ever had during a match was in GA. Kajun, Capt. Bill, looking forward to seeing and shooting with both of you again. And if any of my prattle stirred your dander, I apologize. I'll stand for the first round while we try to put Barkeep Casey out of business.
