    Just what it says.

    We get an influx of new guys, and many are embarrassed to ask that burning question.

    But then it occurs to me, some seasoned guys here may be laboring under misconceptions of their own.

    I went to the store for Glasers, have a project in mind.

    "Where do you keep your Glasers ( GLAY-sers)?"

    Euro-techno weenie guy looks at me condescendingly. "We keep our Glasers (GLAHH-sers) over here."

    I still don't think he's right, but since I've only seen it printed, and never heard it spoken, I could be wrong.

    We abide by two rules in this thread.

    1) No question is stupid.

    2) Anything asked here isn't brought up again outside this thread, or held against the one who asked.

    When I read this thread that quote was in my mind so strong.

    -back on track
    Is it illeagal to jump off of a bridge?
    Is it illeagal to buy an item from a store more than one time?
    Do you have to have a license to spear fish?
    Is it considered poaching to kill an animal with a slingshot?
    Is it considered poaching to kill an animal with a trap.

    1) Jumping off a bridge is illegal without a permit.

    2) I don't know....

    3) Yes

    4) Specific to state

    5) Specific to state

    As for the first question, it is markedly different than a man's.

    I have heard it pronounced Glah-zers. Sorry to side with the techno weenie but there it is. Also have always heard Cu-sool.

    Merriam -Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines poach as:

    Main Entry:2poach
    Function:verb
    Etymology:Middle French pocher, of Germanic origin; akin to Middle English poken to poke
    Date:1611

    intransitive senses
    1 : to encroach upon especially for the purpose of taking something
    2 : to trespass for the purpose of stealing game; also : to take game or fish illegally
    transitive senses
    1 : to trespass on *a field poached too frequently by the amateur Times Literary Supplement*
    2 a : to take (game or fish) by illegal methods b : to appropriate (something) as one's own

    However, to ask questions of legality, "check your local listings as our options may have changed since your last call."

    I've always pronounced it "Cah-sool", that could be wrong, but it's how everybody around here says it.

    Since the "R" in 7.62x54R means rimmed, is there a 7.62x54 that is not rimmed?

    Kahsuall.

    If poaching is illegal, why are eggs the exception?

    The "R" refers to the type of rim on th 7.62X54R. The other is indeed rimmed, but the 7.62x54 (no "R") rim is a smaller diameter. The designation "R" is used so the ammo is loaded into the correct firearm that it is chambered for.

    All this talk about rimming...

    First question, how many times can you reload brass?

    According to my research, I've determined the following....

    7.62x51 ammunition is safe to use in a firearm chambered for .308 winchester, but .308 cannot be fired in a firearm chambered for 7.62x51 ?

    Is this similar to the pressure issue of 5.56 firearms shooting .223, but not the other way around?

    If there is the .357 Maximum and the .357 Magnum, does that mean there is a .357 Regular or .357 Light?

    I know nothing of reloading, but you may want to get specific on this one, i.e., caliber, etc.
