    You can decap them by filling with water then inserts dowel or drill bit into the neck. Hit it with a hammer and hydraulic pressure will force the primer out. Youíve gotta he pretty hard up for brass to do that tho.

    Seller has extended purchase protection 3 times and my blood glucose monitor still hasn't shown up.... Just as well I don't have diabetes and want it works a first aid kit not me personally
    Just got an offer from aliexpress for half my purchase price.... So the seller is still making money without having to ship any goods

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    The curative powers of Waikato are well documented. You only have to read this forum to find evidence of that.

    Open a dispute and ask for all your money back aliexpress then sorts it.

    If you can prove they never shipped it AliExpress will definitely sort it in your favour. Takes a while tho, especially the fund return part

    Mail. How can a properly addressed and stamped envelop take over a week to get from the Mainland to Auckland?

    Even with the time of year considered it is pretty piss poor.
