  1. Bergh assures his readers he doesn’t want to repeal the Second Amendment or suggest that gun owners aren’t responsible. He’s a former Army officer, after all, and he took an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Those constitutional rights don’t apply to everyone, of course. Bergh quotes retired four-star general Michael Hayden, who said in a promotional piece for the Giffords Center that “some people… should never have access to any weapons.” In a dramatic conclusion, Bergh explains that Levi Strauss has “never been afraid to take an unpopular stand to support a greater good,” highlighting his company’s support for integration before the Civil Rights Act and for same-sex couples all the way back in the 1990s. “While each one of these stands may have been controversial at the time, history proved the company right in the long run,” he says, courageously. “And I’m convinced that while some will disagree with our stand to end gun violence, history will prove this position right too.” Levi Strauss may have been at the forefront of the Civil Rights movement, but they’re hardly the first company to take a stand against Guns: The Great American Evil. Following the Parkland massacre, a variety of companies, including Walmart, Bank of America, Shopify, and Dick’s Sporting Goods, announced policies designed to curb the Second Amendment rights of their customers and business partners. Sounds like a business plan to capture the attention of future buyers of their products. If all the young snowflakes keeping shooting each other, they won't have any customers to buy their products.

    Gooloo Jump Starter $39

    I've got an iclever brand of these jump start batteries. Wife's car was a Cmax hybrid and if it was not driven in 7-10 days it seemed to go into a deep sleep mode or something, it needed to be jumped off. One guy came with one of the iclever brand ones and he said he had already used it to start a couple a 18 wheeler rigs earlier in the week and still had a 75% charge when he showed up for the Cmax. Haven't had to use it as we traded the cmax soon afterwards, but it still holds a good charge after several months of riding around in the trunk.

    Texas hunters TRY to grill a Rattlesnake

    Do they taste like chicken??? I ran over a snake with a Uhaul truck one time, made a loud pop like a tire blowing out. Snake didn't move after that .

    Storage For Tools and Cleaning Kit

    I keep the various solvents in small drip tip bottles that fit well inside a used coffee tub, the coffee tub lid keeps any smells down to a minimum or none. (Wife doesn't complain anyway). Patches are kept in the box along with the fold up Tipton gun cleaning rack. Rods are stored on a small rack over in the corner behind the internet router, jags and brushes in a MTM jag brush in the Tipton box as well. I have a similar set up for the range but everything fits in a soft side range bag the wife gave me except for the cleaning rods. They stay in a 2" pvc pipe with caps for travel protection, no damage in 2 yrs. I use my Bald Eagle front rest and rear bag to hold the gun while at the range. A multi-caliber bore guide fits in the range bag along with solvents in a small plastic coffee tub, the MTM jag box and patches. Has worked well for the past 2 yrs.

    Cancer Sucks...

    Best wishes and prayers
  8. Just so so. The "concrete mixers" are similar to a DQ blizzard which I prefer. Soft serve ice cream with the usual variety of flavors or additives like M&M's, snickers, etc. Love DQ blizzards on a hot summer afternoon.
  9. Missed the sarcasm I do believe
  10. While I'm no legal beagle, seems like if you have a permit from the City of NY, you could transport the firearm to a gun range w/o issue. JMO.

    Anyone Fish From A Jetski?

    I've seen some videos of some jetski's set up for fishing, rod holders, the whole 9 yards, try google fu and see what happens. I think they were used for offshore/gulf fishing, maybe even traveled out to the oil rigs. Do you use a fly rod or regular baitcaster/spinning set up ???

    Memphis Area unclaimed Veterans Funeral

    I pray those rest in peace for their service.
  14. Just another example of being blind to the facts. Facts don't matter to them, they're willing to do or say whatever is necessary to further their objective.

    Drill Press Advice

    HF has some reasonably priced ones, but quality is always suspect there IMO. You take your chances there. Most big box stores have entry level ones with a better warranty.
  18. Beautiful work again, and as usual.

    People may think you are an idiot, but there is no reason to open your mouth and prove it.

    Headlight bulbs

    Try and find a car forum for your brand/model and see what they say about headlight bulbs. Some work better than others (last longer, etc). With the DRL's, the lights probably last as long in terms of hours but if you drive more during the day, the lights are on since you drive more during the day than at night. JMO. I've read where the DRL, or some of them run at a slightly lower voltage by design, and this may not be good for the bulbs. Different situation I know, but I've got some recessed lights over the garage doors at the house, they have been on 24/7 for almost 14 yrs now and I've never replaced a bulb yet. I do have a dimmer switch on these.

    wanted 22-250

    Look at the Rem 783 or Cabelas/BPS FV12, depending on what your intentions are.
  23. I have one of your cards I got from a range buddy. I'm wanting/needing some barrels threaded for suppressor. Thanks for the info on your hours.
  24. Ok, thanks, will have to get in touch to set up a time.
