what in the heck did we do before FORUMS??
It was an old pot-bellied stove with a coffee pot on top and half a dozen old rickety chairs, one with a busted out wicker seat. Mine was at the old Four Flags Trading Post on East Lincoln in Wichita; seems I always got the chair with the busted seat.

...and man, do I miss those days.
We nick-named these 'old pot bellied stove' meetings 'liars club' meetings.

But I can say, as a young man attending some of these 'liars club' meetings, keeping my mouth shut and pouring coffee for some of the 'ole-timers ', I sure did learn from them.

Thinking back, learned a few things I won't repeat.

I "cookie cut" with an old T/C Luber. And yes the bullets are warm and the lube is still warm too. The lubed bullets will drop out the top when the tube fills and you can store them in a Wal-Mart plastic container. A friend of mine uses his speed loader to "cut" his bullets out of the pie tin. Works for him.....

"Skuttlebutt"

Was the name for a bucket half filled with water into which sailor's discarded cigarettes when the smoking lamp was lighted.

A natural place for conversations.

Thus the term "skuttlebutt" now applies to the information that was available in the pipeline, no matter the source or accuracy.

I was always able to be a source but my accuracy was always in question.

I am happy to continue in that tradition.
