Re: Magazine loaders

A little on the pricey side....particularly if you don't have several handguns in the same caliber to load all at the same time. But.... some of those magazines can be hell on your fingers to load.

58 caliber lead ball compared to alloy ball

Saw this test to determine the penetration and to what extent there was loss of configuration in a 58 caliber round ball in lead compared to a lighter alloy ball fired with the same rifle with the same load of black powder. The lighter alloy ball performance I think surprised them. https://www.black...

Re: The Play Offs

My take is, I think Alabama coaching...or the lack thereof... played a large part in Alabama taking a nose dive. Sabin was caught lacking staff as good seasoned coaches had been lured away to other schools and he was relying on people who were filling the gaps but weren't up to the task. I think Ala...

Re: Site has had server failure problem

Got a bogus email today saying the site had been hacked and that I had to remake my password. If anybody gets one of those it was not from me. The site wasn't hacked and nobody has to change their password. The problem was with a server and with the format of this board being not up to date. Don't a...

Re: The Play Offs

I was cheering for the Bears too. They really had a turn around this year. In about another half hour THE GAME...and yes I'm shouting... comes on. The college national championship will draw viewing numbers that will eclipse any of the playoff professional games. Hope Alabama can play focused the wh...

The Play Offs

Anybody watch Philly and Chicago? Talk about your agony of defeat. I really feel for that Chicago field goal kicker. Bounced off the upright and off the cross bar too...the wrong way.. after the Eagles coach called a last second time out on the first try that went right down broadway. :loco: Next we...

The Patton Saber

Saw this story about the Patton saber. Seems General Patton designed this saber for US Calvary in WWI. Only problem was that the Calvary was no longer a usable part of the order of battle. What's interesting is that the blades were cut into three sections of first class steel and made into bayonets ...

Re: MAH Facebook page

The present site isn't going anywhere...which is something I wasn't at all confident of until very recently. It just needs some laborious time consuming repair of some features, mostly, by someone with amateur experience...myself. The Facebook site that Duncan started allows for posting photos, whic...

So you think the states recognize the US Constitution?

The First Amendment says: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
