  1. Exercise and keeping track of what you eat can help with maintaining current weight or losing pounds.  Just adjust your calorie goals. 
    Two apps help and they are completely free.

    Under Armour app Mapmyrun or walk or whatever you choose, log your exercise, it will sync with the app  MyFitnessPal. (you log your daily meals). Set a weight loss goal based on your exercise level and calorie level.

    If you try these apps and stick to it you will see results. Make sure you check with your doc before starting an exercise or weight loss program. 
     

    If all else fails consult a weight loss physician. 
     

    I used to run or jog for exercise when I was younger. I mostly walk or bike now.  I have had pretty good results using the two apps. You can exercise all you want but if you don’t track your food intake you won’t have much success.

    I agree, it's very hard to bury a best friend so I found out about getting them cremated and the last 2 I lost I have cremated and they are still with me on top of my TV console in urns. I can thank many people here for being able to have Kasey cremated because at the time I could not afford to get it done and many folks here stepped up and helped me. I had Kasey almost 18 years. Then I was not sure I wanted another one and this one found me and her name was Darbby and I became very attached to her quick and had her about 5 years and she had health issues when I got her and finally she developed Kidney Failure and I had her put down and this time I was financially able to have her cremated so she is on the TV Console next to Kasey. If there comes a time for Rosie She will be up there on the TV Console also.

    I totally get this, my lab is on the fire place mantle. It brings me some comfort to know he is nearby.

    They do not live long enough. I quit when I realized i could not bury another friend.

    I felt the same way after I lost my big yellow lab 3 and half years ago, I felt so much grief and pain. I told my wife I couldn’t do it again. But my wife couldn’t live without a dog in the house. So we adopted a puppy from animal rescue, she has brought us great joy especially these last couple years.

    We've been kicking around for years the idea of getting one of those storm shelters that are put in your garage floor slab. I think we are going to move forward on this as I don't see us moving anytime soon. Does anyone have one? How do you like it? Any advice or local installer recommendations? Thanks in advance.

    Like many folks, I felt the last tornadoes were too close for comfort. I haven’t seen a swarm of tornadoes like that in a long time. 
    I am looking at several vendors. 
    I lived in Oklahoma for quite a few years, when I was a kid we always went to our neighbors basement. 
    After seeing the aftermath of so many tornadoes, I just don’t think riding it out in the bathroom is best idea. 
    I want a professional shelter.  I looked at Fains in Jackson and a couple venders in Nashville.  Haven’t made my mind up.  I like the convenience of a steel safe room but I want to make sure it’s up to testing standards. 
    In ground away from the house at zero dark thirty makes a little slower to get too.

  5. A long night, tornado raced by just north of us. No major damage in my immediate area near the Kentucky/Tennessee stateline.  Sirens went off several times. I followed the tornado tracks on news 2 on line.  I am thankful it missed us. 
     

    My heart goes out to those that were in the path of the tornado.

  6. Watch the “Long way up” and Long way down” series you will see electric motorcycles and Rivian electric trucks travel the length of North and South America.  Good scenery if nothing else and you see some electric vehicles in all conditions.  Granted they had lots of $$$ sponsors and a big support team.

  7. I look at the electric vehicles as just another option for transport. There is some practicality  to having one especially when the next pipeline breaks cutting off our supplies or the lunatic’s shut down the Persian gulf again. 
     If you are a multiple vehicle family wouldn’t hurt to have one in the mix.

    I don’t think they are going to save the world, because every lithium power pack is made with Chinese coal. 
     

    I currently have a gas burning Ford truck and my wife drives a Honda CR-V. When her car gets worn out, I could see an electric car replacement. 
    Now if they ever get hydrogen motors going, that’s going to save the planet!

    A lot of military budget spent on development. I don’t know if we will see it in production. 
    There are air guns that would out perform the one in the YouTube video.

    But I do believe electronics will be fully integrated into handheld military weapons. Eventually conventional powder and lead projectiles will be replaced.

    I rarely buy from Brownells, mostly Midsouth Shooters. Tax is there, but prices are usually better, cheaper shipping than Midway.

    Also, on GB, most sellers charge 3% credit card fee.

    I like Midsouth I usually pick up my stuff in person, so no shipping charge. I know it’s not practical for people that don’t live near them.

  10. I wouldn’t do it. In the late  70s in Oklahoma it was somewhat common practice among some Law enforcement officers to have their 38 specials converted to 357.  A gunsmith would just bore out the 38 special cylinder to accept the longer 357. 
    I was encouraged to have it done, I did it on a model 64 S&W and never felt comfortable with it, sold it with full disclosure. 
    Non magnum cylinders are not tested or designed for magnum loads. Yes I know Elmer Keith invented the 357 by pushing the envelope.  YMMV.
     

  11. Rossi .38 special 3 inch barrel.  Have never successfully fired more than one round out of it at a time.

    Got it like new in box early 2000s, don’t know when it was made.

    I load up a cylinder,  pull the trigger goes bang and the cylinder locks up.

    A Winchester 190 .22 Jam-O-matic even after I tightened the barrel.

    The current runner up is a Cobray 45/410 double barrel. At least it shoots, but I kind of hate it. 
     

    Lots of others in the past.

  12. Fully vaccinated and boosted. I wear a mask when required and I try not to push my luck.  
    I am 100% convinced at this point, if your mind is made up pro or con, no one is going to change it.

    Best wishes to you all!

    Well it looks as if Miss  Gutierrez-Reed is gonna be the fall guy. It seems that in a pod cast a couple of months ago that she commented about not being sure if she was ready to be a movie head armorer. I kinda find it hard to believe that a girl who has been shooting and handling firearms since she was big enough to pick one up would make such a mistake. But then, we all have brain farts now and then. Very sad indeed. 

    Question: can you still get fingerprints off a fired cartridge case or does the heat destroy them? Seems it would be easy enough to check prints to see who actually put the live round in that gun. 

    Seems like a rookie mistake to bring live ammo anywhere near a movie set. 
    Did the assistant director just grab a gun without asking her and assume it was safe.
