  1. I honestly cannot remember anything earlier than this and have photographic evidence of me carrying not one but two of these, circa 1974. Some photos you can just... smell. And if you know what I mean, you know what I mean. Sweet, sweet Sulphur.

  2. Just a quick update. "Katy" was pretty much hands-off for five or six weeks. But in the last week she's decided that she wants to be petted pretty darned often. She sticks right to my side on our walks in the woods, and pushes her wet nose into my hand every ten steps or so. She's figured out that her kennel and house are hers, and she'll go in there whenever she wants a break. I fly model airplanes and helicopters, and she REALLY wants to eat one, but so far she's respected my "no's" on that. She's still lean but one can no longer see her ribs and spine sticking up, and the flea collar has done wonders for her biting and scratching. Off to the spay clinic as soon as I can get an appointment, and she's due for a full set of shots. But I guess she's family now and we'll do what we can for her.

  4. So what's your point? Is vaccine status the new litmus test of remembrance? He was anti-mandate, as so very many people are and with good reason. Many of those people who are against mandates also get vaxxed. It is in fact possible to be against edicts and still do the right thing for yourself and those around you. Regardless, do we know whether he was vaxxed or not? No. He already had enough health problems to begin with. It's absurd that covid has to be thrown into the conversation whenever someone dies now.

  6. Always listen to old man stories because 1: They are reliving a time they'll never get back. 2: You'll be making their day. 3: You may learn something. 4: You'll be old one day.

  7. It was a special Christmas for my son this year. He is 5 and "Santa" brought him his first real gun. Of course it had to be a KSA Crickett: black synthetic stock with stainless barrel. His eyes and face when he saw it were priceless on Christmas morning, so Santa did good! Here is a quick shot of us shooting it for the first time the other day. We went through a couple hundred rounds and had a blast. Hope all you folks had a great holiday season!

  10. Just spent yesterday and today watching an online auction. They sold 700 knives, which was a portion of the old man’s estate. I bought a couple. Wish I’d have bought a few more. This fella was well known in our community. He’d had a stroke, and either communicated with hand signals or a pen and pad of paper he kept handy in his shirt pocket. No telling what the old man was worth, but you’d never know it. He was as nice a guy as you’ll ever meet, and still a kid at heart. I always fancied myself as a pretty formidable card player, but you simply could not beat this fella and his buddy at Rook. No matter who I partnered with, I can’t remember once ever even getting close to beating them. If they cheated, I never caught them, and I have a pretty good idea what to watch for. Two reasons I post this. One, these type fellas are gone, never to return. Two, collecting pocket knives isn’t nearly as dead a hobby as I thought. His family and the auctioneer will be very happy with the results. Have a great weekend and thanks for listening!

  11. Project Veritas posted internal military/gov't emails detailing the fact that in April 2020 (yes Virginia, almost 2 years ago), the fed gov INCLUDING farci knew that: It came from a lab in China Eco Health Alliance was funding its research with US Taxpayer money (because DARPA passed on it since thats illegal) Ivetmectin works ("it both inhibits viral replication and modulates the immune response.") They knew the shots wouldn't work. They knew natural immunity would be lasting and durable They knew it mainly affected the sick and elderly But YOU can trust them with the shot. Totally not lying to you this time. Got boosted yet? But go ahead and denigrate me for seeing through all the BS so you don't feel stupid for trusting an agency thats been bending you over a barrel since before you were born. I truly don't understand people. Read Plato's shadows. Fascinating bit of psychology. People would rather drag others underwater with them rather than admit they were wrong.

  12. What better way to save some money for a Christmas gift than to just do mostly gun work on a desired subject of the recipient, in this case my son. When we were in Sarco's show room a number of years ago, he spotted this Greener GP shotgun and they only wanted $275 for the danged thing! The gun was glued to his fingers as we checked out the rest of the stuff there. Well, the gun came with a 2 3/4" chambered 30" modifyed choke barrel and it was a take down model that is pretty interesting in its self. All you do is just loosen the screw head there by the forend and hand turn out the barrel. The screw acts as a simply clamp screw closing the receiver ring around a well fit barrel shank. He all ways thought having a Rifled 12 gauge barrel to swap in would make it a Really nice GP gun as was stamped on its side. Numrich had the Mossberg 512P barrel used and I was able to cut most all of the (bad idea) ports off for a handy 18 1/4" barrel length. The scope base is a weaver that I was able to put 4, 8x40 screws into the beafy Mossberg 512 Rifled barrel. And that sits shouldered up to a High Standard pistol rear sight that comes with a 90 degree face as a recoil shoulder for the base and yet is usable as open sight with the orange bead up front. Other extras include cutting the Original barrel down to 26" chambering it for 3" as well as for the 512 and putting a Win Choke II on the end. A 1" Pachmayr recoil pad in lew of the home made plastic thing that was there. A trigger job and fixing the safety so it wouldn't go into safe with each lever drop. Topped off with a 15 oz Vector 1-5 illuminated dot cross hair scope. Then the Rings were extensively worked over also. They used to be one piece with a single clamp in the middle. I cut the unit in half and milled each ring for weaver square cross pins and nuts. Now these rings seat the way they should with no re-zero needed between barrel swaps. All this was Christmas and Birthday gift from me since he turned 28 2 days ago. Needless to say he's thrilled with this General Purpose Greener Martini now! Its now nic named Thor. He's having a good new year so far! He worked the last 4 years in the county jail as a Deputy Sheriff on 6-6 O-clock midnight shift and just started his new gig as Sheriff's Court Officer on days with weekends and Holidays off! even a $1500 bump in base. He deserved something different than store bought.....IMO.

  14. This sounds like an amazing idea. As a final word on the matter: @DispositionMatrixnobody (especially me) is buying your attempts to deny that you were doing exactly what you did here. Some of us have been on the internet since before the World Wide Web was even an actual thing. We’ve had enough experience with a specific type of online behavior to recognize it when we see it. If it looks, walks, and quacks like a duck then it’s a most certainly a damn duck. You're on thin ice. My tolerance for this kind of scatological material of a bovine origin is very low. This discussion is closed.

  20. Never heard of Project Veritas?? They have been exposing the .gov, ANTIFA, BLM, Abortion Clinics, etc. etc., for years. If you haven't heard about them then you have been living under an MSM rock. Hell, they had their offices raided by the FBI to find the documents which prove ole Biden is a perv with his own daughter.

  24. So thrilled to live in a free state, relocated from LA area in November. The Lord opened doors for us to be here, bought a new construction home here in Spring Hill. Getting used to this weather! I was overwhelmed at the variety of firearms available here that are not available new from a dealer in California due to their onerous and illogical laws.

  25. I get it. I’m sick of having to mark them as spammers too. What I’m not sick of is the time you and others put in to alert us to these assholes so that we can take care of them. Thank you. Seriously. We couldn’t get them so quickly without y’all doing your part. It’s much appreciated.

  26. Grip upgrade on the EDC. The P365 XL grip was pretty much perfect for me as it is but, I like the Wilson Combat P320 model so much more than the OEM. I figured it would be worth the 65 dollars to try it on the P365 too. First impressions, this thing points great and the front and back strap texture is more aggressive (more positive). Holster fit is still just as positive for me which is a plus.

  28. The entire discussion is irrelevant. What’s going to be done about these findings? Nothing! It’s just more of the power brokers ensuring that we continue to do what we are doing now. Little powerless citizens fighting one another. I’m no longer convinced that there isn’t some sort of cover up going on, and the more boosters they suggest makes me more skeptical about taking them. We’ve got to get past this allegiance to political parties and realize that it’s the people against corrupt government and politicians.

  30. Update... The M&P is on the way back to Smith & Wesson. They should receive it Wednesday. It will be interesting to see how long this process really takes and what the ultimate outcome with be. Until I have some other news to share, let the be a warning to anyone who is considering a new S&W of any sort. Maybe buy a Glock instead.

  31. This is an old picture. I've added more since this was taken. 1959 Colt Commander .45acp. My EDC. CMP 1911. 1942 Colt frame with an Ithica slide. 1964 Clark Longslide. Still as accurate today as when it was made.

  34. Barely used beast of burden wanting to be ran more than I can. Eats anything that you feed her. Can adjust package as necessitates, but full package buys take precedence. I am normally wide open to trades, however unless you have some land like the acreage that I'm going to buy with proceeds, I'll have to take cash or cash app type transactions. No trades. Comes with everything pictured tominclude a sling, a rail for the Aimpoint PRO, the Aimpoint PRO, the ProTac rail mount light with pressure pad, and 2 magazines. I have buku ammo for buyer to purchase at additional cost, if desired. $1900

  35. I just bought a new Maverick truck and paid $1100 extra to get a straight gasoline engine instead of a hybrid. I am too old to be the one experimenting with new technology. I don't even carry a smart phone, I'll just finish out what time I have left living in the past.

  38. I bought this pretty little over/under new in 2005. The wood is beautiful, no blems or boo boos on it. Has 26" barrels and comes with 7 chokes (5 factories & 2 Carlson skeets). I'll even throw a box of rabbit loads in, tis the season. This was my go-to dove gun until my friend sold me his Browning Citori. No sense in this sitting in the safe any longer. SOLD - thanks TGO

  39. A new hunting buddy. I'm desperately looking another person or two to hunt/camp/four wheel with. I hunt pigs, that's my focus. I'll also hunt most anything else that presents an opportunity. I pay to use a large piece of privately owned land outside of Monterey, TN. TWRA has approved the taking of pigs on the property at any time, by any means. I pay $500 per year to use it and you would have to as well. I've been hunting this place for 3 years and in my opinion it's well worth the money. An ATV or SXS is a must have. I have one established bait site with a cellar camera on it, and would like another. I also have a camper that I like to take up there on weekends that you would be welcome to use when I'm there. There were 4 of us that started hunting the property together, only one other remains and he works an odd schedule so he's usually there when I'm at work. I honestly don't mind the solitude, I rather enjoy it, but I've found myself in a sticky situation or two, miles from camp, and many miles from anyone that could help. I figured it's at least time to see if I could find someone to start hunting with me. I try to get up there 1-2 weekends per month. I also have to run up from time to time to fill the feeder or do maintenance on the feeder. I have a son that's 1 1/2 years old that will be joining me within the next couple of years, so if you have kids, they are more than welcome (immediate family members are permitted to accompany you on the property at no extra charge). I honestly go up to ride my four wheeler or SXS as much as I hunt as I'm still trying to learn the property. I will note that since there is no season on pigs I do this year round. I live in Lebanon, and as I stated the property is outside of Monterey. I work Monday through Friday and get off work at 3:30. I typically cut out an hour or two early on Fridays and head out. I usually try to be home by noon on Sunday to get a little family time in. Though I have the ability to talk about pig hunting for hours, I am absolutely still learning. Your knowledge of pigs isn't important to me. I'm happy to be out in the woods, bringing home bacon is icing on the cake. What is important is that you are dependable and free of drama, I only have so much time to spend in the woods and don't want to sacrifice that because of some silliness.

  41. I bought this gun brand new 25 years ago and used it in Alaska for shooting halibut before you brought them into the boat. This model to my understanding is no longer manufactured. It is a very neat 410 shotgun or shoots 45 Long colt. Has storage in the butt stock for extra shells. It is in very good shape for the length of time that I have had it. The barrel is marked Survivor I don’t know why but for some reason all these years we always referred to this type of gun as a “snake charmer”. My son killed many ptarmigan with this gun strapped to his 3 wheeler. 400.00$ please use email for best response. Proarcaviation@gmail.com
