      Who is going to Friendship?

      ....after Tuesday, a lot of the sheep shed vendors are out....went in the spring, the primitive area was sparse as far as vendors....the flea market in town was OK...didn't go up to China Junk Hill (flea market on east end)....sheep sheds and primitive are pretty dead by the second weekend....

      Question

      ..ha, so Ft Wayne is in southern Indiana now? Guess that makes sense since the southern part of the state is really more northern Kentucky?

      Legality of non-matching numbers on a gun

      ....yep, only an issue with older firearms for collectability.....I have a 1901 DA Colt that is a matching #'s pistol, also have a 1905 S&W, honestly have never really bothered to look....both were bought to shoot, next owner can worry about them being collectables....

      Pet peeves

      ...yeah, if I have loads for long range matches or round counts, those are neatly packed and marked.....the plastic pickle containers are for plinking or bulk/overruns, I mark them the same as boxed ammo.....funniest one, at an end of year match, we usually have a shortened shoot followed by a...

      Pet peeves

      ....boyhowdy, lol, you'd hate going to the range with me or some of my buddies.....don't take it I don't have or use good organized containers but I will also use plastic jugs like dill pickle, parmesan cheese or planters containers occasionally....more than a few guys I shoot with are...

      Pet peeves

      ....that's why I bought a separate decapping die......I decap all my brass before I clean them, I reload a lot of my brass with BP. I run most of my brass thru a cheap Harbor Freight sonic cleaner to eliminate issues with powder residue and then media tumble them for cleanliness....for...

      Most Violent Cities in America 2023... Indianapolis #12

      ....based on the nightly news, you could say the same thing about Indianapolis....when I was a pup, the Downtown and Westside were the dangerous places, now one isn't even safe in Beech Grove, Southport or even Greenwood, lol....

      Most Violent Cities in America 2023... Indianapolis #12

      ....yes, it's based on murders per "100K", this is covered on a YT video.....unless one is completely naive, newly every city or town of some size will have an area(s) that could be considered unsafe? Cities like New York, Chicago, Houston et al are easy targets for blame because they're large...

      .....as a youth that grew up in the sticks during the 50's-60's...the Indianapolis of the 70's-80's was a fun place to work, run around and live in......today, many of the places of my memory are now the subject of murders, robbery and every other issue one can conjure up. I now live far from...

      Person Shot on I-65 near Southport Road

      .....it seems typical now, to drive in the left lane, catch up to someone and speed match them or go just fast/slow enough to prevent the rest of the traffic to flow.....not to mention drivers that will wait and literally look you in the eye, then pull out in front of you!.......no shortage of...
