    FREE trapping class

    Me too, sorry I missed that one. I would like to learn more about snares and trapping. Maybe I will see the post if you do another one. I don't get on here as much as I once did. Thanks for your time doing these classes. Mac

    Need help on book title

    Thanks for everyone straining your brains. Prag that title is familiar, but I searched some and that isn't it. I have read enough books that my OLD hard drive in brain tends to get them mixed up. Ya'll don't strain your brains too much.
  3. My bad, we indirectly pay their insurance. If they had insurance, I wouldn't have to pay for uninsured motorist.
  4. We do pay for their insurance. For quite awhile I have wondered why we have to pay for uninsured motorists on our insurance. If everyone is required to have insurance, they why do we pay for uninsured motorists??? Very similar to people getting multiple DUI's, sorry but I don't feel sorry for anyone that puts my family in danger because they decide to drive under the influence!!

    It happened in 1980

    Carter 3rd worst president, behind Hussein Obama and Wm. Jefferson Clinton!!!
  6. Hey guys, I am going to show my old age kicking in. I read a book about SHTF about 5-6 years ago and cannot remember the title. The family had been in Walmart and the guy noticed all the checkers having issues, he goes to sporting goods to pickup a few more boxes of ammo, tells his wife to get home, fillup truck if no lines. He went to local hardware store for some added items, he knew the owner well and he let him and a few more to get stuff for later payment. Thanks upfront. Mac

    The Garden Thread

    Hi guys, for all that don't have a nice garden spot like Greg I want to let you know about raised bed gardening. I started raised beds about 4 years ago and wish I had done this about 40+ years ago. I found crates from a local tractor co. that were free so that is what I used. You can make beds as long as you want, just keep them 4 ft wide or narrower as you can reach in from both sides. I bought a load of topsoil and mushroom mix and it is really the key. First on raised beds is you don't need a tiller or hoe, you don't compact the soil as you are not walking in it. You don't have to compete with weeds and grass as you are above them. I put down cardboard and some black plastic along edges and added dirt mix. First year I literally pulled 3 weeds all season. There is lots of info on web, but if you have any questions let me know.

    Go buy a real 4x4 that you can get parts for if it ever breaks. Try a real Jeep, an older K-5 blazer or 1st gen Bronco. You couldn't make me take one on a bet.

    Coolest hitch cover ever

    the white targets are no shoots. paint it tan and good to go. I have seen some IPSC tan ones with a couple of holes and red led's that light up with the brakes pretty cool.

    The Garden Thread

    I started celery inside planted Feb. 1st. I thought carrot seeds were small, but those things are almost microscopic. Plan on starting brocolli seeds 1st of March. I found this while looking at planting dates, it is called Phenology which is an observation of natual phenomena. You can find several sites that give a correlation between plants blooming and such to a planting time. For example plant potatoes when 1st dandelion blooms, plant bean, cucumber and squash when lilac is in full bloom. Thought I would pass this along, I had never heard the word, but it is like other old time sayings that people had observed over many years. Good gardening to all and may your harvest be plentiful.

    Mike Dillon passed away

    I searched and didn't see this. I just learned that Mike Dillon who is the designer of Dillon reloaders and revised the mini-gun passed away on November 7, 2016. You can look on Dillons website and they have a tribute.

    Wheel gun itch

    I will try to keep this short. I used to shoot competitively and I have a pretty quick trigger finger, however quick may not be accurate! I went back to shoot wheel gun when I lucked up on a S&W model 610 that shoots 10mm and .40S&W using moonclips. I can tell you for certain, with only 6 shots before you are empty as opposed to 21 rounds you will definetly slow down a bit and make those 6 shots hit in the A zone. It made me a better shot by going back to the wheel gun for a time. I call wheel guns "real" guns and semi-autos as bottom feeders. LOL

    10 mm vs .40 S&W

    I have some .40 cal semi auto pistols and carbines. I have a S&W 610 revolver that shoots 10mm and .40 cal. It is similar to .357 that shoots .38's the case on 10mm is longer and holds more powder. It has similar knockdown power of a .41mag. Like others have said .40 cal is cheap compared to 10mm. As with all discussions about caliber, there is always pro's and con's. You can kill most all animals on this planet with a well placed round of .22lr, anything bigger is just overkill I suppose.

    Favorite Gun Oil

    A quick comment on Remoil. There is 1 that has ptfe in it, above all DO NOT GET THIS INTO BORE!! I know firsthand the problems you can encounter. As you probably know ptfe is teflon, I almost got rid of a Remington 700bdl in 30-06 as it shot a pattern like a shotgun. It took several times cleaning the bore with Hoppes #9 and shooting it 50 rounds or so. It is now a great shooting rifle. Thought I would pass this along. Mac

    reloading rifle ammo

    Also if you don't have a chamber checker, you need to run each loaded round thru your gun to make sure it cycles well. I have chamber checkers for my pistol rounds, but I don't for my rifles so I make sure they function prior to hunting or shooting.
