    Automobiles are not a fair comparison because of their utilitarian value. If guns had the same everyday usefulness as cars, the firearm death rate would be considered outstanding.

    Most solid state converters only start on three phase, one generated by a capacitor, and run on single phase. That gives you a power reduction on an already underpowered machine. Look for a real...

    What is a Whacheon lathe? One of my customers has a Hwacheon which they like very much. They also have three Mori Sekis and seem to consider the two makes interchangeable.

    This a story I read a long time ago, so if anyone has a correction to make, please do so. As I recall it, Norway had universal firearm registration before WWII. When the Nazis took over, they looked...

    The Afghans might not have fared so well without Charlie Wilson's missiles and other assorted aid. There is no question that the Afghans were tough adversaries, but without the ability to take down a...

    I am quite aware of the advanced weapons that existed. I own a .33 caliber caplock rifle with a 37" barrel, a Potsdam musket, a 14ga caplock shotgun and a modern replica of a Remington cap and ball...

    A friend heard a radio interview of a retired general by a very liberal woman. He was telling her about his work with the boy scouts and mentioned that they were teaching them to shoot. She said "You...

    I have read that at the beginning of the revolution most of the rebel's cannons were privately owned. I don't have information about the relative sizes, but it seems that there was at least a certain...

    First, as Sledge Hammer said, guns don't kill people, bullets kill people.

    Your last line is a nice statement but the fact is that most people have given up the right to drive as fast as they...

    As I have said before, I made my first gun when I was 13, a crude piece of ironmongery, but it was as capable of killing someone as the fanciest target gun. When you consider that almost by...

    An example is the black friend I mentioned earlier. He left the area he lived in and moved to a semi rural one across the Mississippi in Illinois. When I asked why, he said that they were fed up with...

    A man standing by a road in the Colorado mountains was attacked by a grizzly bear. Two hunters jumped out of the woods on the other side and shot the bear. One hunter looked after the victim and the...

    A quickie reply, it is easy to idealize the good old days, but in many ways they were. From the age of 10, 1945, in the summer I would mow lawns during the week and ride to my father's office on...

    I have a Sheldon R-15 with the long bed. Ray Behner has the 13" version. These are excellent medium duty machines, not up to the heavy cuts like some of the Monarchs, but plenty rigid enough for most...

    Part of your problem is that English is not really a language. It's a polyglot, a pidgin language developed for Anglo Saxons in the south of England to communicate with Viking traders from the north....

    That makes sense when the fuel source is right there and the vehicle doesn't have to carry a large load of fuel.

    Right. The hydrogen is burned off each molecule, one molecule at a time and they are not especially joined together so you have something that can get through almost any opening. Folks used to think...
