Re: Rice instead of pins for tumbler

No. I usually do 90 minutes, or until I remember to take them out. If they are slightly less clean towards the end of the rice’s life span, I don’t notice it. I cleaned about 1200 308 cases last weekend and the rice was dirty to start with. They all came out looking fine. The shininess has zero impa...

I use it for a long time. Probably 4-5 batches at least.

Nope, just plain bull white rice out of a 25# bag from Sam’s club. It was like $13 for the bag, so I can’t imagine that corn cob is much cheaper. Rice doesn’t break down like corn cob, and it cleans better.

Re: Rice instead of pins for tumbler

I’ve been using regular white rice in the vibratory tumbler for about the last 18 mo the or so. I used a stainless tumbler since 2010 or so before that, and I can’t imagine that I’ll ever go back to that process. 90 minutes in rice and all brass comes out about a good as walnut, but no dust. Cases a...

Re: Question from a Texan

Dakota county was also less than $100 the last time I renewed, I’m thinking it was $75 too.

Re: New Lawsuit Argues That Customizable Rifles Are Illegal

My feelings are that gun owners don't agree on why they should own guns, what they should own and whether there are any absolutes of ownership. The general lack of consensus does not bode well. Many who own are not passionate about it and if asked or told to surrender their weapons would comply. Ex...

Re: New Lawsuit Argues That Customizable Rifles Are Illegal

The gun owning public are the definition of dysfunctional. In what way? In the way we expect those we support to protect our rights to actually use that money to protect our rights? I guess so. To hear some tell it, we should probably just double our contributions to the NRA and not concern ourselv...

Re: New Lawsuit Argues That Customizable Rifles Are Illegal

All joking aside, how much political capital should the NRA spend on a losing battle? Despite of all it's warts, the NRA still instills fear into the hearts of the anti's. How much of that clout would NRA have lost if they opposed the ban and it was implemented anyway? Is that where they are now? I...

NRA was too busy buying suits and intern apartments.


You say that like it's a bad thing. Suits like that don't just buy themselves.

Re: Some dudes think their stuff is gold

Who knows. Instead of adapting with the times, OGC is choosing to continue pretending like it's still 1968. Bullseye only targets, limited shortrange opportunities, baloney rules... if they weren't so close, I wouldn't bother spending the money or time every year. I've given up trying to change the...

Re: Mass shooting at mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand

Just an FYI, for anyone still following this. I received this email today from the NZ police: Hello, As a current or former holder of a New Zealand firearms licence you should be aware of new legislation amending our firearms laws which came into effect on Friday 12 April, 2019. Police are working t...

Re: Some dudes think their stuff is gold

What you spent and what they’re worth are two completely different things. Worth what someone is willing to pay for them. Yeah, I’m referring to OldManFCSA’s comment specifically. I’m pretty sure no one is willing to pay him the cost of his rifle plus what he spent on upgrades and ammo to buy it. A...
