Re: 50 BMG Rifle Blowup

M2, screw in the barrel until it stops, back out 7 clicks. Pull charging handle until the square dimple is centered in the hole on the side. Use the Go/No Go gauge. Adjust 1 click at a time if necessary.

At least that is what I remember from my very limited training with Ma Deuce.

Re: Coleman 530 pocket stove and 252 lantern, cool can opener added.

Pitchy, Coleman used to have clip on mantles. Could those and some steel wire to hold them up in the right position do the trick? There are other brands and styles of lantern other than Coleman. If you can figure out how to adapt a lantern mantle to that Aladdin lamp, it could be a way for you to st...

Re: Model 92 Leverguns ... .357 Magnum

In the Dallas area, I run into quite a few folks who use a 7mm Rem Mag to hunt deer. Comparing the numbers on paper, the .25-20 and the .32-20 to the 7mm Rem Mag, it really starts to become apparent that Jordan was a good shot and a good hunter. I would bet that the amount of bullet damaged meat fro...

For a deer to get that big, it had to be smart. Jordan must have been a good hunter. To use a levergun in a not so powerful caliber really shows that it can be done.
