    I guess he was an agent for Eastasia. We've always been at war with Eastasia. Only now we call it "terror" instead.

    Yeah-Pyrodex and maybe Goex(or did I make that Goex up-memory)
    No one actually uses REAL BLACK POWDER- sodium nitrate sulfur charcoal ANYMORE do they?? Hard to believe you get thrown in jail- for black powder- but maybe it is REAL BLACK POWDER?? Explosive?? Geez not really much of an explosive by 2012 standards!!

    Looked up the 13 grain load- Speer 1994 manual-they show max 12 grains Blue Dot 155gr a-1296 FPS out of a 5" S&W 1006-usually Glocks get more velocity than S&W-and 13 grains?? Might be pushing 1400 fps-690 ft lbs!!!!!!
    I remember when "Sonny Crocket" had a 10mm-Bren 10 or Dornhouse something or other?? Sonny handled that recoil much better than I could!!

    I owned a J frame 357 for 5 full power loads 125 gr Rem 357- one cyl full told me all I needed to know! !!! Your wife is a better man than me!!

    Herm- yeah Arty-greyhound-would be a first rate zombie killer! Of course they are sooo slow-greyhound is overkill for Zombies!
    PS Isaac is a laugher so far-sissycane!! Arty breaks wind with more vigor-heck cats probably do!!

    The problem with black powder is that very few stores stock it, there are storage regulations etc.. so you have to order it and there are hazardous shipping fees, $20 I think.

    You still need it for flintlocks, pirodex will not work for those.. and I think real black powders is a bit more accurate also in long rifles. Its very messy on a 6-shooter, a couple of reloads and the gunk will jam up the gun.. but the stench is part of the fun, plus you scare everyone at the range.

    Hopefully things will turn for the better come November, Obama cant even manage a decent hurricane :)

    I had no idea folks actually used REAL BLACKPOWDER?? Sulfur sodium nitrate charcoal

    When I was a kid a buddy got his hands on those 3 ingredients- yeah I bet he made the news at some point in his life- he was maybe 12 yo- I was 7-8-fascinated
    but 12 yo kind should be screwing with gunpowder(which is what we called it) unsupervised.
    It was a bad idea back then in 1958- his parents encouraged it "science etc"- but it was more- lets blow "stuff" up
    Fun- but bad idea!

    PS We are screwed on Isaac-much more-wind and rain-intensity and duration-than we expected! Well not more intense rain- but more intense winds-and duration- it will be 36 hrs of heavy wind!

    You had a sheltered life as a 12 year old :)

    I want to see a picture of Artie with a snorkel.
