2.8 grs of Bullseye, 125 gr lrn cycles in her P938

but just barely, which is what i want for her at this stage in the game. She's ok with the expansion, charging and seating stages of the Lee progressive press as long as the bullet and case-feeders are working properly. She's more mechanically inclined than any woman I 've ever known. Her dad wanted a son, took him 5 tries to get one. Wifey was the only tomboy, papa showed her how to take down and re-assemble a 1911 when she was 15 and she remembered how 14 years later. She's changed her own tire, papa taught her that, too. She used the jack stand to support the end of the 4 way tire tool and jumped up and down on it to break loose the lug-nuts! :) She figured out how to change the taillights in her car and is finally actually writing ok in English these days. She's still got a pretty heavy accent, especially when she gets excited about something, speaks a little bit broken English then, too.

4.0 grs of BE and the 150 gr lrn blew a case, not real bad, didn't break the stocks. Her smith is going to have to flow some metal back into the frame and barrel feed ramp areas with a Tig.

4.0 is a lot of Bullseye with a 150-grain bullet in 9mm. I don't have my books handy, but I thought 3.5 or so was the max even with a 147. Could be off on that, just going from imperfect memory.

"...have to flow some metal back..." It warped the frame & feed ramp, or am I misunderstanding that..?

Wow, what an attitude! Don't know about you but if my wife heard me say that, I'd be watching the direction she points her 12 gauge SxS!

Let Her? Depending on which fantasy you want she's the RN, 2nd Lieutenant, College Grant bread winner. And you let her? You would be out the door in the real world. I "Let" my Wife spend her money anyway she want's. I "Let" her do anything else she want's to do. She "Let's me spend my money anyway I want. She also "Let's" me do whatever I want. It's called Marriage.

you're a ****ing liar. I've never said she's an RN. She's an LPN, and will probbly be in RN classes this fall, if the college opens up, which is far from being a sure thing. Ive never said she was in the army, altho she might join the N guard this fall, she couln'dt be a Lt for another 3 years, minimum.

With extremely rare exceptions, I trust people about as far as I can throw them, especially women, cause I can throw little people a long damned ways. I've seen a lot of potentially good shottists ruined by trying to shoot loads that they were not ready for yet, so **** you and what you think.

I’m not an expert in the field, but have some family members who are; my wife was a hospital microbiologist for decades, one niece is an RN, and one nephew is a doctor of pharmacology.

To even apply for NP testing you have to have a master’s in nursing, which is preceded by the RN license, which itself requires a bachelor’s in nursing. You previously claimed she’d be an RN in 2018. If she doesn’t already have her RN license by now, she’s very unlikely to make NP by 2023.

It’s okay to just live life without making grandiose and silly claims about the amazing things you’ll “someday” do. Just live, have fun, learn, and occasionally help somebody. It’s not a bad way to spend the short time we have here.

Oops; you're right, my mistake. You can be hired as an RN in limited capacity with just an associate's degree. Curious then how you can proclaim such optimistic absolutes about what "will" happen by such-&-such date, since she's still not one after four years now..?

I don't know of boati,gunkid, .223, or whoever just forgets what he posts or like most compulsive liars just posts it anyway. You posted the 2nd Lieutenant thing on the National Guard was pretty much a done deal. You also posted that "Wifey" was going to be a CRNA by now. Why don't you check your own post's before you start calling other people liars?

Melvin lives in his own little universe. What else do you expect.
He always translates any plans for the future into present reality regardless of facts.

Also gleefully points out and outright lies about people's shortcomings.

Liars and braggers always have trouble keeping their stories straight.

no, the 80% kit's jig caused the barrel to be positioned too low, and in attemptig to make it feed properly the maker cut away too much of the feed ramp, on both frame and barrel. Wilson says that the only way to make a 9mm 1911 reliable is to add a fully supported barrel. I suspect that such is not true with the commander's shorter slide stroke. I had one 40 years ago that did fine, as long as you only loaded 8 rds in the mag. The 4 extra ozs of the govt slide is probably too much mass for reliable functioning with safe 9mm loads. The longer stroke just lets the bullets nose-dive that much more.

not true. The NP training IS your master's degree training. No, the RN does not require a bachelor's. I've already posted info that it's just a 2 year degree. You're too lazy to google it, that's all.

the fact that you can't remember anything is no fault of mine. I'd never have said that about the lieutenant thing. You have to have 4 years of college first. I have no control over how fast she progresses in school. The course are so easy that I could pass the RN exam in 6 months of study.

There's going to be a big shakeup here soon. I'll tell you about it after it's over with. probably take 6 months.

And I already acknowledged that I’d made a mistake. Right above, in this same thread. Months ago.

I wish I had a dime for everytime "somebody" over the last 20 or so years, with exceptions for when at the Felony Inn Bed N Breakfast, made a grandiose proclamation with the word "will" in it.
With the typical results.

Something on being the captain of your own destiny:

When you go around proclaiming "I'm King of the World!" before realistically charting out your own course.
Don't blame anyone else when you scream -"The ****ing boat sank AGAIN!"

Well, it's not fair that the world has icebergs. And even though the icebergs may be huge, predictable, and even easily visible, we still shouldn't have to factor them into our plans.

I'm gonna swim the English channel. I've read about it, and apparently reading about something and doing it are the same thing.
