    in reply to: Kimber 1911 #2946347

    I do have a Kimber custom CDP II in 45 acp. That is a 5″ barrel.

    I like the alloy frame as it is lighter and as I am a lefty I need the offside safety.

    I found out a long time ago that the gun you shoot the most is the one that you keep the closest and is easiest to carry.

    The night sights are awesome in bad light.  As for accuracy I have no trouble hitting a 2×3 foot steel target at 175 yards.

    As a side note  I bought a cheaper 1911 in 4 1/4″ barrel and found it not really any more concealable and not as accurate, naturally the shorter barrel would probably be louder in noise and lesser in ballistic performance. Certainly it was serviceable but I surely missed the night sights trying to smack a raccoon in a dark spot.

    I don’t think that you can braze aluminum. I think you better do some test spots before you start on the bottom of your boat. You could end up with a lot larger holes than you have now.

    I do not think that brass that you braze with is compatable with aluminum. Any brazing rod that I have worked with needs to be red hot to flow. I bet your aluminum will melt away before it is red hot. Massive mess potential I think.

    Your boat, you do whatever makes your day, be happy.

    My opinion is on the ar thing is you need a good trigger that suits you. Try some different ones to see what suits you.

    Then shoot it a lot and have fun.

    You need to go to some nursery or better yet the ISU extension office to see if there is a peach tree variety that will work for you. The ones that I have planted in the last 5 years have all died. If you can’t go see some sucessfully grown save your money and plant something that will grow at least. I would go to some orchards and see what varieties they have that won’t die right off.

    I do not mean to be negative, I just want you to succeed with a happy face 😀 Don’t be like me, plant a bunch of stuff that dies off and get frustrated.

    It had a tracking collar of some kind on it. I saw pictures.

    Started with mules a long time ago . Have coon hunted on them, but just in the past 5 years raised a kind enough one to chase pheasants on.

    I figured that I had been walking after pheasants for over 50 years, I kinda knew how that would go. I decided that I just as well make an adventure out of it, and I don’t get so tired of walking in tall grass.

    It makes the mule better too. I can lay the mule down to get on, but that seems more work than it’s worth.

    I’m sure that I would get more birds walking, but I can’t stay at it as long or cover near as much ground.

    Brownells website has youtube videos on how to build an ar-15 with quality parts available as well.
    For my 10 cents worth I would want the following things.
    A good trigger
    free float handguard
    a scope mount that is cantileivered forward, example Bushnell PEPR or similar. That type of mount raises your scope and pushes it forward out of your face and makes life better.
    Then the fun begins.
    You can get mounts for iron sights mounted at a 45 degree angle so you turn your rifle to one side for iron sights, I didn’t find that nearly as cumbersome as it sounded.

    The weapons were used illegally, whatever they were. The shooter was insane and therefore trying to reason out why he did what he did will be fruitless.

    Taking your and my guns and rights away because of what he did would be like casterating yourself because your neighbor has too many kids

    Try the Lyman Cast bullet handbook.
    The data is for cast bullets but will take you were you want to go with many powders.

    I owned an early Hornady progressive called the Projecter.
    After 20 years I sold it and bought a Dillon 550.
    I am happier and have no regrets.
    I like to index my press by hand and I can feel instantly if something is not right.
    Get an extra Dillon toolhead and you can change dies in seconds and they are all in adjustment.
    I won’t part with mine.

    I always could tell if I caught a badger in a trap cause it looked like a small backhoe had been at work.
    I had one on a short chain that dug down and around the stake until it was hanging from the trap. The only thing holding the stake was a small bit of frozen ground.
    If you can find a badger digging this time of year they are easy to snare on a fresh dug hole. Just use some toothpick size sticks to hold your loop at the den entrance . It’s hard to miss a badger that way.
    The biggest surprise to me was the badgers reaction when snared. No digging visible at all in any that I ever caught,but you had to really look for your snare because it just went tight down the hole. You kinda needed a light to see the badger and you wouldn’t want your snare to long to enable mr badger to get too far down the hole. I miss those days.
