  1. Ohhhhhhh my........ The hives are in full flow right now! It was too hot to do any real harvesting today, but she collected 4 frames to make some room & harvested 11 pints of honey! We have around 30 more frames to harvest next weekend. VID_86300520_063544_247.mp4

  2. Back in December ( or it could have been Nov, ) I got up from my chair to go to the bathroom and saw what looked like a ribbon laying in the floor. As I got close, it headed for the bookcase so I realized it was a small snake. The bookcase is on those super slider things so I slid it out and sure enough it was a skinny little rat snake. It was about 16-18 inches long and maybe 3/4" in diameter. I grabbed it and started to get up off the floor ( this requires me to hang onto something ) and it wrapped it's tail around a spindle of the end table, pulled out of my hand and hauled ass. It was und

  5. Guys. I know I don’t post much. Mainly just a lot of reading to learn. Well it’s time for me to do a little teaching If you do not have one of GT’s knives get one or two I have several custom made knives and have wanted to get one of Grand Torino’s because they look good. In the past I have always been a day late and yeah sometimes a dollar short. But NOT THIS TIME. His craftsmanship is top shelf. The fit and finish on this knife is probably the best these hands have held. And the edge( while not yet proven) is super sharp I am rough on a knife and I’m sure to do a follow u

  6. Just got home from vacation and found my M1 waiting for me/ Here are some fresh out o the box pics, pre-cleaning. This is a Postal Meter Very Good - Fine grade: The splotches on the wood appear to just be on the surface. It's either a dried substance or perhaps some mildew/mold. It scratches off easily with a fingernail (which was promptly washed). Any suggestions on cleaning the wood? With my old Mosins I just scrubbed the wood with Simple Green and rinsed them off with clean (ish) water....they were $80 Mosins. I suspect I may need to be a bit more diligent about this one. I was thi

  8. I learned quite alot that I didn't know Chip was responsible for. I had to do some searching, but Chip was only 51 years old. Let that be a lesson for all of us, we aren't guaranteed getting back home this afternoon. If you are not certain where you will spend eternity, make that a priority. You have to decide on the green side of the grass where you will spend it.

  9. Nice! I look to have 10 medium 8-frame supers full of honey this year. I have added one more super to the short hive ( it was a swarm I caught this year).

  10. My guess (and there is no way to know) is that someone bought that, swapped it out and returned it. Amazon didn’t actually check it and placed it back in stock so you got the bunk item.

  12. The benefit of doing it this way is the attention, or lack thereof. I'm not talking about with us, we track these things pretty well...but you all should know we're one side of the spectrum on gun issues. Using the route of delegated regulatory moves makes it so the Congress isn't debating it for puic consumption. Democrats don't have to go out on a limb for it, since the issue is an election risk and a distraction from the rest of their agenda. Plus, if you haven't noticed, Republicans aren't in any hurry to raise a stink, or negotiate for these rules to be blocked via legislation; s

  15. I landed a National Postal Meter Vg-Fine rockolas went super fast. I had another brand Fine in my cart and it was OOS before I could complete the sale. Their Site was strained to the max. I’ll post pics when it arrives on my C&R doorstep. I’m hoping this is a case of you can never pay too much, just buy too early. Not that it matters. I don’t plan to ever sell it. It will likely go in my will to family.

  16. A month ago the price for a decent USGI M1 Carbine was about $1000. Yesterday it was $1200-1400. Tomorrow the Midway rifles go on sale and who knows what the "going" rate will be after that. The age of cheap Mil-Surps is gone. Never to return. If you want one, now is the time regardless of price.

  17. Fair warning, the market prices for milsurps has only gone upwards in the last decade or so. Unless you get one handed down to you or manage to score one of those deals that folks talk about for years, these prices are likely as cheap as you’re going to see them. They’ll only go up from here. Sadly, 5 -10 years from now we will look back on these as being affordable.

  20. Thanks for posting. I avoid amazon at all costs. I've had used items sent before. Not to mention their political agenda, which is enough for me personally. YMMV. +1 on Kenzie and Primary Arms. Had great service from both. I'd rather pay more and support a small company than save a few dollars and feed the machine. My 2 cents.

  21. I was at Point Blank in Knoxville on Tuesday and they had a bunch of Turkish 124 gr 9mm FMJ on the shelves for $34.99 in case anyone wants to pay that. They also had large boxes of 40 S&W FMJ and some 10mm as well. They were also well stocked with Turkish 5.56x45mm for 21.99 a box. All of it was a bit rich for my taste, so I left it on the shelf. But others might not balk at the price.

  23. I wonder what they are waiting on. 2021 has been full of violence and mass shootings yet they haven't passed anything. Mid terms will be here before we know it. It does seem like it's all been lip service. If they were hell bent on passing gun control they haven't shown it. Hopefully it stays that way.

These bast#!$s are tryin to change existing rules to punish that wrongthink. It's another proof of the need to sweep the ATF and the " Injustice " Department clean.

  29. Well said chances R. That is the mindset of most folks. Try not to go into the places that would most probably be the most dangerous. We never know if or when danger will rear it's ugly head. I usually carry even when out in the garden or cutting the grass. Bad guys are opportunists and usually prey on the elderly, weak or the person that isn't aware of the situation. Be safe out there boys and girls, this isn't Kansas and it's not the wonderful world we grew up in.

  30. I find carrying about 2 o'clock to be the most comfortable of the IWB positions for me. It is still fast ( legit sub 1 second draw to first shot from concealment on a timer ) as AIWB but more comfy for me. I carry a G34 or a G17 that way in a holster with the FBI cant. So essentially take your holster that you would be wearing at the 4 o'clock position and move it forward so that the barrel of the gun goes right under the watch pocket of your jeans. The grip then kind of disappears into you. Here's a pic of me (black shirt) carrying an RMR equipped G17 at 2 o'clock, clinch pick k

  31. There are several threads/posts out there on boards like the CMP boards regarding cleaning wood stocks. Believe it or not one of the most promoted is the dishwasher method. Do your own research on the process but it basically a hand wash with something like simple green and then a cycle in the dishwasher (without the dry cycle) and without added cleaner/chemicals other than the simple green. Apparently it not only cleans all the grease, oils, and dirt from the wood it also restores some of the minor dings and dents much like steaming a dent with a damp cloth and an hot iron.

  33. Well since we are talking snake stories I have one from years back. I had an older brother that was crippled from polio when he was 4 years old and he could do most things for himself because we had his home built to make him independent. He worked for the Federal Government as an accountant. Well when you live alone if something is moved in your house you will know it. He kept coming home from work and things had been moved in his house several times in a week. Nothing big, little nick knacks on end tables and coffee table, a coffee cup knocked of the kitchen counter and broke so he called me

  37. Actually, I think it's kind of cool that they're making these available to those who purchased their carbines. As for your email, it's also possible that the person who responded had no idea whether these were available or not, as it's likely that these haven't been entered into their inventory yet and some random guy keying in email responses has no idea what's in the pipeline or what might become available, other than what pops up on his screen when he searches ...

  38. Got curious about these Danish/Italian Garands and did a little quick research. Apparently, when Denmark surplussed the remainder of their non-US owned rifles, Century International bought the majority of them. A few were directly imported into the US, then their import certs on the rest were denied (guessing pressure from commercial manufacturers, which got a lot of imports denied over the years). So, Century sent most of these to Canada, where a lot were them dissasembled, receivers stripped, and the rest sent on into the US as "parts kits". SARCO, at the time, had a huge inventory of US

  40. I don't have experience directly with USCCA except for attending some of the local education (recruiting) sessions they have done. I believe they are reputable and you wouldn't be making a mistake going with them. That said, I joined CCW Safe after spending a great deal of time comparing. It is like so many other things, they all have some strengths that you wish the others also had. After reading all the fine print, I concluded that CCW Safe had a higher probability of providing more coverage (criminal and civil), giving more say/choice in representation, had an advisory board of

  43. They'll go fast. Where else can you find primary market M1's these days? As you're well aware, every time a new (old) supply of milsurps shows up, prices go up accordingly. Look at what happened with M39's a couple of years ago when Classic landed the last of the Burns hoard, prices jumped by 50% or better practically overnight. As always, things will settle back some once the initial impact of a fresh supply wears off, but for now, it's feeding frenzy time ...

  46. While I appreciate your responses in this thread, I think we're wasting our time. It's the same folks saying the same things and asking the same questions since last year. We've answered the same questions multiple times and they come back the next week to ask it again as if they really want to know the answer. I've only seen a few people who I thought were willing to look at it objectively and came to ask questions with any sincerity.
