Re: 1,600 Minneapolis Gunfire Reports Within 30 Days

Good question - an empty, burned out husk of a building doesn't seem like it would be worth guarding.

Re: PTC renewal

'being forced' to accept online voting in the fall election. Online voting would almost have to involve some sort of identity verification, wouldn't it? Seems like that at least has the potential to be better than our current system. (Not saying it necessarily would be better, just that it *could* ...

Re: Beginning of the End for Brass Cases?

This line from the article seemed questionable to me - anybody able to attest to the accuracy of this statement? Why wouldn't you be able to adjust the internal geometry of a brass case?

With a brass cartridge case, "you can't do anything to change the interior geometry," Hogan said.

Re: Beginning of the End for Brass Cases?

Need Russstra to explain polymers. I would think if a polymer gets hot enough it melts or burns. That's exactly what I thought, but the article says the polymer actually helps keep the chamber cooler. This is the kind of thing I was hoping to discuss. It's fascinating to me that polymer is even a p...

Glad to see you have a sense of humor after that. We were laying it on a little thick.

Re: Reloading in 2020

Well, whatever the pay rate is for a professional M1 Garand shooter is. So I guess you’ll have to look up what an E1 in WWII was paid, and then calculate your hours based on that. Mail the invoice directly to H&H’s house, he’ll pay it. Don't forget to adjust for 75 years worth of inflation. :)

Re: Reloading in 2020

For me hunting time is family time, and that's priceless. :D Nonsense, everything has a price. You need to be billing someone for your hourly wage, unless you are some kind of sucker. I'll make sure to bill the range at my hourly rate from my job next time I'm running a timer or scoring at a USPSA ...

Re: Reloading in 2020

In all of this, you've never specified what specific hourly rate you value your non-work hours at. How is that relevant? I am not the one claiming $5 per box retail equivalent. You're the one who is claiming that his time is super valuable. I just don't see how that makes sense without some sort of...

Re: Looking for good deals on bulk projectiles

For 9mm, you can get significantly cheaper than the 8.3 cents/bullet you're quoting by going to coated bullets. http://thebluebullets.com has 115 grain 9mm round nose for ~6.3 cents/bullet when you order case quantities, and every year on Black Friday, they do 15% off, which would make it ~5...

Re: Reloading in 2020

Otherwise where do I put my order in with you for 9mm at $5 per box? 1) Approximately $5/box is my price for components, importantly not including brass, which I view as free since I pick up more after any given match than I shot in the match, and would include zero profit for me. If you want 9mm f...

Re: Reloading in 2020

I’m sure it’s fairly impossible to turn out 9mm as cheap as you can currently buy it You'd have to be buying it for less than $5/box to beat the $0.10/round I reload it for. Admittedly I haven't been shooting as long as many, but I don't think I've ever seen even the worst steel case 9mm for that l...
