    Not sure the Toyota setup, but I found for my old car the cheapest option was to buy a blank chip key off ebay and have a dealership cut/program it.

    I did this with the Dodge Caravan I used to have. Ended up with 2 programmed and cut keys for less than 1 from the dealership. I even still paid them to cut and program it in the total cost. .

    Skunks almost always spray or at least release when shot.  

    That's why just about anyone who's had to deal with them more than once gets a trap.

    I used to work with a guy who was having a problem and took a shot at one when it was close to his house.  Is sprayed and was right next to his HVAC - the house smelled for a long time.

    On the trap front - I've got it on good authority from a pro trapper friend of mine that Flamin' Hot Cheetos are as foolproof of a skunk bait as you can find.

    This is the trap I got. $25. Well worth it. It folds for storage. I got my ground hog out of the way with it.

    Caught by the homeowner being notified by his security cam, preparing for the guy to try to make entry, :) and then calling 911.

    Like I say…. I love me some technology. Those nice folks may very well be alive because of that camera.

    On the other side he may be alive because of it. If he had broke in suddenly he might have been taken away a few ounces heavier. 

  4. So my question is:

    Why was a violent offender ("aggravated child abuse and especially aggravated kidnapping") doing out on basically unsupervised grounds duty?

    My Papaw was the litter pickup officer in my home county. He took guys out every day. They were usually only the drunk and disorderly or check fraud type people. He never let them out of his sight. He made it clear he would not chase them, he was too old for that. He had 6 friends that could outrun any of them. He never got anything but respect from them because they knew it was a privilege to get out in the fresh air. He would not take anyone out that he felt would be an issue. 

    So is the prison so hard up for funds for grounds keeping and staff that they have to let inmates roam freely?

    I have a Bisley Vaquero in .357 magnum.  I like the Bisley because the hammer spur is lowered so you don't have to reach for it with your thumb. It also has a widened trigger.  The sights are not adjustable but how often do you adjust the sights on your handgun? 

    The fixed sights are dead on.  I used it to win the company pistol shoot a few yeas ago.  You can shot hot .357 loads until the gun is too hot to reload.  You can iron your shirts with it while you wait for it to cool down.  What ever single action you decide on, you are going to love it. I like to put on my Stetson and my Old El Paso Cheyanne rig and run around the house in my underwear going "Yippi Ki aye Ki Yaye!"🤪 

    And one day the local pd is gonna have one hell of a story to tell about an accidental shooting.....lol

  6. You might want to check out "The package" from these guys if you want to go all live. 


    I am not sure on weight, but I have always had an aversion to having aquariums upstairs. Eventually something always happens to have a leak. We have had many, just never salt water. The wife always wanted, but money and time commitment made us hold off

    This dude is long gone. I'm betting he has had wheels under him from the start. Once he finds a weapon and is mobile it's on until they corner him.  

    I am guessing if he killed a corrections employee, even an administrator, she had a gun he took.

    Even if he shaves his beard, wears sleeves and a ball cap, he still can't do much about the nostril asymmetry and ears close pinned to his head.

    LEO's were searching south of me on Hwy 412 between Parsons and Hohenwald last night.

    He looks like he got his nose broke once ...or a dozen times.

    It is shown that a guy with a knife can close in on, and score a hit on a guy with a gun if within 21 or greater feet if the gunman is not paying attention.

    Most 7-11s I have been in barely have 21 feet of room in any direction.
