Sorry to hear that happened to you. I never understood people who find their amusement that way.

drove to work this morning and the low tire pressure light came on.... Hmmm ...RR huh !

OK so I call the Dealer,  figure I picked up a nail last night , I'll swing by and have them check it...

They ask " were you driving on Old Canoe Creek next to the Florida Turnpike yesterday ? "  

Yep ! that's my route home...  Them " someone dropped a big box of screws, we've handled 12 vehicles since  last evening "

one guy this morning had 9 screws in two tires.... word has it other tire places are doing similar repairs in town.

Well, hell ...as it turns out , I had three all in the Right rear, I can remember when it happened,  sounded like gravel flying up ...never saw them though.

anyway  one dead center of the tread (fixable) one on the side tread lug ( marginal at best to fix ) and the death nell ,one in the sidewall ...Tire is pooched  Roll Eyes and it was 1 of the 4 new set I had put on last fall....

GOT to a BUY A NEW TIRE  Angry   @  $280 each ....

Old topic but I thought I'd throw my 2 cents in the spittoon.

I use a spark plug socket attached to a drill (with bolt and nuts)

Then anneal the portion where the bullet seats.

You left out the field carriage and limber, but otherwise you did well... or if you're a good ol' country boy, you done good.

I picked up the 1916-made Colt 1911 from a friend who moved to Oz and sold his collection.
The Colt 1908 Vest Pocket .25 ACP is a 1919 year, and was acquired recently is a low bid from Rock Island Auction in April.
The 1911 holster is an original RIA dated 1913. The 5 rds of ammo shown with it are stamped "FA 11 11" and "FA 11 12" (Made Nov 1911 and Dec 1911)

I don't have any safe queens, no virgins. These get exercised once a month however I am using a High Standard (HS) barrel from 1945 for the Colt 1911 as the original "P over H" barrel has some light frosting and no sense in taking a chance with it.

Thank you very much for the invite!

My bio: Born and raised in Minnesota, at age 18 I moved West and started working for the Boeing Company in 1979.I have about 4 more years to retirement. (I've had 6 careers there, Machinist, Tool maker, Tool Designer, NC Programmer, Engineering Application Analyst and now an IT Project Manager)

I married at age 30 and have been married to my lovely wife for 26 years now.

My father was in Korea, 101st Airborne, Staff sergeant training troops state side (due to a jump injury) and around 1969 I shot my first duck with a single shot .410 with my dad beside me. I joined the NRA soon after!

I like to reload, shoot a variety of rifles, pistols and shotguns at the local gun club, sometimes hunt depending if my sons have available time in their schedules. (I used to big game hunt in Montana when I was single, my Stepfather lived in Ennis and I had a 30 acre parcel back there with hunting rights to 10,000 acres as we belonged to a land owners association)

I am also a professional photographer and have a side business specializing in youth sports pictures, both sports action and team photos. We currently reside in Bonney Lake, WA.

Wife and I love to fish too. She always out-fishes me and she'll let you know that too! :/

In the past 4 years I've been into .45-70 Springfield Trapdoor shooting and reloading for said rifle.
Here is my beauty! She was purchased from my buddy's father in 1954. It used to be part of the Oregon National Guard from 1892 until it was acquired by a Tacoma, WA mil surplus store. No history on it before that time.
I bought the rifle 4 years ago for $650.00 from my friend (his dad had since past) and he moved to Australia. They don't take kindly to Americans bringing guns to Oz. Wink

The cartouche is 1883. It has the Buffington sights which have been fun to master. I also have the original bayonet/frog and breakdown tool.

Thanks guys for the information, it was a great help. I have a better idea on how to do a caper.

One more question, what is the difference, if there is, between a mob and a precinct?

I shoot my new "Tommy Gun" last night, was that a blast.

Thanks again!!
