Episode-169- Calls From The Audience 3-31-09

I am in the home office today so no background noise from the highway as I take a variety of listener calls from the audience.  Remember you can call in your questions and comments to 866-65-THINK and be heard on the air.

Join me today as I answer the following questions…

  • If you are using a pool for reserve water how do you keep the water useful with the grid down?
  • What is going on with gas, will the price go back up soon, any shortages coming?
  • Are we going to loose military surplus brass, will a new law require it to be destroyed rather than recycled?
  • Are we about to have reloading shut down with bar coded ammunition, what is the real driving force behind ammunition tracking technologies?
  • What is going on in Mexico and what does it mean to us?  Is our government a bigger problem in how they are spinning things that what is really going on south of the border?

  1. This is a great show, I loved the the format, please do more of them like this.

  2. Ive been thinking about the water purification issues lately. Youre talking about keeping the pool clean with chlorine, which is very expensive, dangerous to store, and takes a lot of work and testing. How about a solar powered ozonator for your pool, or for a concrete cistern? Would the plastic of a pool liner stand up to the ozone pumped into it? I have a very small ozonator for personal use and the wattage is very small. Many other countries and areas in THIS country already use ozone for a water treatment. Where can we get info on how to test water cheaper than chlorine testing? It seems to be very doable. Do you have any info, thoughts, or ideas on this? TIA, God Bless, Kathy Wilson

    @Kathy,

    First chlorine is not really that dangerous compared to something is mundane as gasoline, it is really quite cheap as well. Storage, a few buckets with lids and your are good to go.

    Ozone is cool, makes sense but it requires power. Chlorine requires nothing more then dumping it in. I a not saying your method is bad or even not as good just that chlorine is neither dangerous if stored properly or expensive if bought in bulk. It is also highly effective and we have it anyway to keep the pool in nice shape for swimming.

    The overriding Ozone question I have to admit I just don’t know much about it. I will look into it and see what I can learn.

  4. ON THE AMMO AND RELOADING ISSUE, IN 1983 A BOUGHT DIES THAT ALLOW ME TO TAKE ANY FIRED 22LR BRASS (EXCEPT FOR WINCHESTER)AND TURN THEM INTO 223 PROJECTILES. THE 3 DIES DO THE FOLLOWING:
    1. REMOVE THE RIM
    2. INSERT CAST LEAD (CORBIN SELLS THE 4 CAVITY ADJ. MOLD)AND SEAT IT
    3. FORM THE POINT
    THEIR WEBSITE IS: http://www.corbins.com/intro.htm

    I’VE MADE THOUSANDS OF ROUNDS AND SAVED A TON OF MONEY ON MY RELOADS. THEY ALSO HAVE DIES FOR OTHER CAL.

  5. I understand that the mil brass fiasco was a done deal done via DLA under directive from DoD and that this was an executive branch end run around congress. If you have information confirming legislation, please provide the bill number and sponsor\’s name. This was quashed immediately because of the uproar and that DLA could reverse the policy. Policy, not legislation.
    Thanks

  6. A bit late but….On the drop in oil prices.
    In the Transportation industry, we started looking hard at every way we could save even the tiniest little drop of fuel back in spring of 2007!

    That could account for about a 10-20 dollar drop as well. And many commuters found cheaper ways to get to work in 2008, so another $20?
