Top Five Long Range Cartridges – The Best of the Best

Long-range shooting expert, he literally wrote the book, L.P. Brezny, makes his case for what he thinks are the best Long Range Cartridges. The Long Range Cartridge Line Up:   United States -(AmmoLand.com)- First off, a number of you won't like what I have to say on the subject of long-range cartridges. Prior to starting this material I interviewed several hard-nosed long-range shooters and asked each of them the same question. “Name five of the very best long-range cartridges please”. In ea...

Spell-checker upgrade?

:help: I have used the built-in spell-checker in the Calibre editor, but it seems to be VERY limited in vocabulary. I often get lists of 1000s 'errors' — most of those only once or twice — which are simply words that are not included in the built-in dictionary. Many of those are verb contraction combined with another word. ['d 'll 're etc.] The spell-checker seems unable to figure out that those are really 2 viable words an an acceptable combination. I often avoid using the spell-checker becau...

Building a Custom GLOCK 19 from Brownells – Review

Building a Custom GLOCK 19 from Brownells U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- “A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse.”  Arguably one of Shakespeare’s best-known lines.  Sure, it contains iambic pentameter, but the genuine need echoed in this line from the King is what we’re interested in today.  My shop is primarily a custom shop.  You don’t walk in and find glass display cases with rows of guns under them.  You open the door to see technician benches, welders, mills, a big lathe, etc.  If I’d had a ...

overdrive.com constantly logging me out

Is anyone else seeing this? Recently, the website https://overdrive.com has been logging me out every few minutes. At first I thought it was just forgetting my credentials between login sessions - like a cookie or javascript problem. But after more testing, I login successfully, use the site for a while, then bam - it logs me off right in the middle of doing things (not idle).

Weekend Reading 11.8.20

Hello, how are all of you? Like all of you I spent the week watching the election results roll in.

This week I’ll be helping a friend who owns a local store in my town create a holiday window display.

Will I be able to disable/delay screensaver on current kindle?

Hi, I'm thinking about buying a Kindle (the cheapest version) to use it as a digital recipe-display in my kitchen. One thing I'm concerned about is the screen-timeout I read about. I want the display of the device to stay on while I'm cooking. So will I be able to somehow make sure that the screen stays on for at least an hour on an current gen kindle? I've never owned a kindle before, but I'm tech-savvy enough that doing some "hacking" wouldn't be a problem.

Home Defense Shotgun – What Makes it Kick-Ass?

By Tom McHale Home Defense Shotgun Tips and Gear Home Defense Shotguns are insatiable ammo-eaters, so one thing to consider is extra storage on board. USA -(Ammoland.com)- While many debate what the Best Home Defense Shotgun is, it’s hard to argue that the shotgun doesn’t make an ideal home defense weapon. While capacity in terms of shell count will almost always be less than that of a semi-automatic pistol or modern sporting rifle, each one of those shells delivers a whole lot more impac...

Here Comes the Sun!

I was out pulling weeds and getting rid of dead branches when the election was called and didn't find out till half an hour later. But I like to think there was something symbolic going on--maybe even sympathetic magic. We're not out of the woods yet--there's going to be whining and litigation and tweeting yet to endure. But the end is in sight. And I am so happy. It's been so nice to hear from friends all over--even in in England, France, Austria, Canada, and New Zealand--who...

Troubleshooting Image : small rendering

Hello, I have an image issue with my Kindle Touch. Images are rendered smaller than it should making it hardest to read for my daughter and her eyes. :bookworm: I double checked on my Kindle (4th gen I guess) and the image is rendered correctly as seen below : I also checked about software zoom (to the max : 14) and margin (the lowest). Does anyone know why image rendering is different between kindles and how I can set this (possibly with Calibre). :help: Regards
