Re: Secrecy, Self-Dealing, and Greed at the N.R.A.

I am a longtime member of the NRA but not all is wonderful there.

They are still the most viable group supporting the 2A.

Re: Question Re: Windows 10 System Image Backup

Here are my questions: Does a System Image Backup fully restore your computer such that you don't have to load anything? If so, can this be done with a new hard drive? If a new laptop is purchased, can a System Image Backup from the older computer be used to "set up" your new computer? This assumes...

Re: Property taxes

One little reported cause for tax increase is illegals. Each child that they send to school ( and they tend to be prolific reproducers ) costs a minimum of $5,000 a year (probably much more) in school expense and you know where the school gets their money. If you are an average taxpayer your entire ...

Once again the renters can post but DPD can't enforce it!
You are right but you may have to convince someone after being hauled off.

This is also interesting

Re: Feeling almost like a real Texan...

We have one, a bit different then yours, but we use a propane tube to get the wood going in the firebox. Many think mesquite is the best wood but actually we use fruit tree (apple, pear) wood.

Re: Houston we got a problem... Live Rd jammed

Wow. I wonder if spraying down the barrel with some DW40 now that the bullet is free would soak up the case and inactivate the primer enough to drill through the primer and perhaps extract the case. I would think that DW40 would do something to the primer but perhaps a test on a primed case to see i...

Re: Houston we got a problem... Live Rd jammed

Tap it out with a wooden dowel. Wear safety glasses and don't point either end of the barrel at anyone. Shouldn't be that hard to get out.

Re: Reloading Brass Substitute Safe?

As long as the brass is in good condition I don't think it matters for pistol brass. I never load maximum loads though. For rifle brass that may be a different story. .223 brass is not the same as 5.56. I like Starline brass. I also load shotgun and for that one needs to load exactly what the recipe...

Re: Property taxes

I believe ag taxes are paid at a much lower rate. I remember Michael Dell was trying to get his land in Austin listed as ag property by putting cattle on it. There are many gimmicks used to get lower property taxes. The big companies like Wal-mart and Target fight the assessment every year with big ...

Didn't we decide once that if event was on city property it could be posted but they were not enforceable posting? I wouldn't attend anyway.

Re: US Army selects new 9mm

So you believe that they can purchase 350 for $2.5 mil and they have the option of getting a total of 1000 without paying any additional money. .. No. The government is not purchasing 350 SCWs for 2.5M, and the contractor is not getting $2.5M upfront. The government will actually pay only for the 3...

Re: Need to clean really tarnished brass?

r I am 78 going on 79 and have other problems but cannot get a DR to have my blood tested for lead. I knew one guy who had lead poisin and he ran a Linotype machine for 20 more years and retired for 10 more. Here is how to get tested if doctor won't order it. https://www.healthlabs.com/lead-blood-h...
