The Longbranch / Re: This was my youth, maybe it was yours too
« Last post by Mogorilla on Today at 11:19:56 AM »
Well, I am a bit younger, my era of teen music was the 80s, but I enjoyed the 60s and 70s through my older sisters, so I loved the tunes.  It is on my lunch time play list.   I agree in seeing our past idols age.   I remember watching cocoon in college with my roommates.   We decided we would all go to an old age facility together and raise hell.   Ha.   We still talk about it. 

I played in a garage band when I was in highschool.    25 years later we were at our highschool reunion and decided to get back together in a few months.   I was just starting my leather working hobby and made straps for everyone with the band name on it (mispelled it twice!) and a leather stick bag for our drummer.   We got back together and for a weekend, it was 1984.   We recorded a few and compared it to an old recording we had from back in the day.   Musically we sounded better, but the energy level was not at its peak.   

Ah the halcyon days of youth.

I am still moved by the music of my youth, but I have mixed emotions about watching the original artists still performing those hits onstage today. Hearing the music brings back youthful memories and energizes me, watching the original artists trying to marshal their performance energy just serves to remind me of the passage of time.
I have visions of myself, and other contemporaries, when in the Assisted Living home falling to the floor with our walkers whenever "Do The Freddie" is being played. And the sheer havoc of trying to get everyone back upright again.

In the Sixties, I was in High School ( no ! not all of them  ::) graduated in 66  :)

I wanted to pay the guitar, even had a Kay Note Acoustic Guitar.
 But my calling was in stage production ( lighting the bands ) and I toured with some staging concerts.
That was in my twenties 1968 mid 70's ...

The music was and still is the best and I to it listen still and get nostalgic.

The Powder Room - CAS reloading / Re: Cleaning BP guns

I have seen ML breech plugs rust and rusted from using room temp water then dried with patches etc and then lubed with whatever lube you prefer. You will NOT get all the moisture out of the breech plug area in a muzzle loader with normal dry patch wiping and then lubing.

you will not flash rust your bore either though !
I dry my muzzies out with the air compressor
then a dose of WD40 and set it someplace warm for a bit (out in the sun, or by the fire during winter) when its proper dry some oil and back in the rack 
I'll pass on hot water - the cure is worse than the disease I reckon ...............(theres a lot of that going round of late)

Or just open it when you take you morning pills and have coffee and then with iced tea and the evening pills.  Works for me. ::)
The Barracks / Re: Graf's .30-40 Brass

I've always used Remington and Winchester (plus a bunch of old stuff, some even marked .30 Army) and it's all worked fine.  I just bought some Winchester to replace some of my worn out brass, but the place I bought it from is about out.  Hopefully I can get a couple more guys shooting Krags!

Hi Dale
The Hornady is the best.  It was more uniform than the Graf or the other brand that Graf sells, nothing wrong with any of it after sizing though.
