Gosh, tools! People hire most of their maintenance and repair, and are flummoxed by a screwdriver.

I think maybe the best example of this is hobby shops. I used to frequent them all the time for...

I've not tried any of the stuff listed so far, but I have shot the newer Aguila-primed HV HPs. I have reconciled myself to probable feed or fire issues after about a box, this across multiple guns. ...

It wasn't a yard sale, but the guy that owned it, my father's neighbor, thought it would go that way. He was a WW II vet that came home on a troop ship, bringing with him a 1938 (near as I can tell)...
