      I’d like to know how many pounds of lead split shot I carried around in my mouth before I was 20. I’d typically use 2 removable BB sized sinkers and would bite them on and off as I’d switch between worms and lures. What you don’t know can’t hurt you right?

        We used to play with mercury when I was a kid. Now if a school Chemistry class spills some or breaks a mercury thermometer they cordon off the area around the school a block in every direction.

        Bill Gates is going to try his idea of dimming the sun to help with climate change. At his expense he is going to disperse a chemical at the very top of the atmosphere that will reflect the rays back to the sun. What if it does not work and puts us into a constant winter ? Can he retrieve the chemicals and reverse its effect ?

          Found a brand NIB Lyman digital pot. Yowza those things are spendy. Proly end up getting a table at a gunshow this summer and moving it and other.

            Took my sons to their Grandpa's house this weekend, did some shooting and also cast about 500 45 SWC bullets, sized and lubed. Did it all with a Lee 2-cavity mold. Lead Dipper and a tiny furnace. Kinda fun. If I ever run into enough primers, I'll be in business.

              Bullet casting, case prep and reloading always give me a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.
