Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

IN PASSING & FWTW

#1 Post by OLDGUNNER » Sun Aug 05, 2018 3:24 pm

Years ago there was a reloading type of thing that was used in target shooting and probable in general. It was where the case was filled with the powder charge and a wad inserted to keep the powder in, the bullet was inserted into the chamber and then the case with the powder was inserted right behind it. The idea being that there was no fiddling with the case between shots besides a new primer required...in other words there was no resizing of the case required – no resizing die set used or required. I am going to try this with the 45-70 brass that I will neck down to fit a 40-82 chamber.

When I was a kid I did something of sorts when I couldn’t find 45-70 ammo for my dad’s 1873 Trapdoors. I used .410 hulls and built up the brass with Scotch Tape and just taped the 45 bullet on the front of the hull. They worked just fine....Like in the photo, although I haven’t built this one up with the Scotch Tape. I can assume that there are a few calibers out there where Die-Sets are hard to find and this could be done.

Did everyone see that drone incident with the Venezuelan president. I can assume that it may have been a warning with the explosion off target to ‘Get out of Dodge or else’. This is going to put politicians on notice through out the world. Anyone can learn to fly a drone in ten minutes. I use to belong to an RC model plane club and it takes a lot longer to learn how to fly them than a drone. Fact is I now have a new RC Plane in a box right now that I haven’t flown yet.
Does anyone remember the very first episode of the TV Series, ‘A man from Uncle’? I thought at the time that they are showing how easy it is take someone out with an RC Model Plane, but luckily the wrong people never got the idea. Now surely with the advent of the drones, I’ll bet it catches on. Shooting down the Amazon delivery drones will be nothing compared with drone assassinations. And this will prompt a new tech field – Jamming systems to be set up for such out-door events. But...but, will everyone trust these? I don’t think soooo. Oh heck, these will work just as good ‘in-doors’ as well.

We will see, ‘As the World Turns’. And remember, ‘’Have Gun Will Travel.” A new vocation....”Have Drone Will Travel.”

On the 3D printing program for making a firearm, I think as the fellow on the interview says, ‘It’s not illegal to make one’s own firearm’, just that one can’t ‘make and sell’ without of course the proper license.
