Any special meaning to your handle or just a way to be distinguished from all the other bullet casting nuts? I stole it from a club name. An elder friend called his dinner group by that name. They all graduated from high school around the same year. All would get together along with their wives at an agreed location on Saturday night to swap lies. I started doing the same for several years. Be Well Brothers, the one, the only, the infamous RustyZipper!

Was trying to register for a forum and kept getting rejected I think 4 times because of the various handles I was trying to register. I had a ,38 special cylinder for my Freedom Arms that had just come back after being repaired sitting next to my computer.. Therefore fa38.

A eutectic is an alloy which acts like an element having a sharp melting point.

I have used hundreds of pounds of linotype, my favorite eutectic.

lol - these threads always tickle me.  My last name is Myers.  As a kid, I got teased with oscarmeyer.  I am also/have been a very long time fly tyer (nearly 50 yrs).  When it came time to pick an internet/chat handle eons ago, like fa38 - I kept getting rejected with the std name/# crap.  Ala - oscarflytyer was 'born.'  Used it for prob 25 yrs?!?  And I use it on all forums.  I have never been rejected anywhere once I adopted it.  It seems to be very unique - and all mine!

I needed a new online name and chose my most recently-purchased hunting rifle--a CZ 550 Lux in 9.3 x 62 Mauser, and contracted the name a bit--c. 2002.  This is my firearms and ammo site ID on a couple forums.

Wm Cook as an alias for Bill Cook.  Side note, never could figure out the need for knobs.  When responding to a thread I hate to start it with “Thanks fleaflem02 that answered my question!”

Patience isn’t a virtue, it’s a delay tactic.

alphabrass for the alpha phase of brass.  Standard cartridge brass (.7 Cu - .3 Zn) is mostly if not all alpha phase.  Kind of amazing stuff.  With annealing it can be drawn into cylinders of very high length to diameter ratios.  By selectively annealing the finished case the base will be hard and strong while the neck is soft enough for bullet seating and obturation.

John Alexander is the name  a pretty US Marshal working in the witness protection program suggested as they were relocating me to the desert in Oregon in a van with no windows. I probably shouldn't say anything more.

Phonetic spelling of short form first name. It has been my online name for most of my online time. I was not an early computer adopter.

RicinYakima was inspiration, what can I say. Just a cheap copy, figured it could be a central Washington thing.

Elsewhere on line I am known by Black walnut or Blackwallnut

I've been hunting rabbits with beagles for 66 years. In the military the suffix 6 after a call sign meant commander.
