    The old guy asleep in the chair with a free loaded gun on his belt.

    Yep, I see lots of "semi-retired" Leo's that end up being SRO. No offense meant to them, their experience can play a great role in kids lives, but some of them are in sunset mode. They no longer work the beat and these are easy positions to work in until they officially retire. My grandfather was a police officer for 30 years. I would not have blinked an eye at him being a SRO at 70, he was still in good shape. I have met 45 year old ones that can barely walk fast without passing out. Unfortunately, the latter make up 75% of the SROs I have seen.

    The problem is that by the time you pay transfer fees it's not a good deal. :( 

    I find that in a lot of things. Stripped AR lowers for instance.

    Lower $29.99

    Transfer (each) $25

    BGC (per transaction) $10

    Total  $64.99

    Lots of times you can meet or maybe beat that price local.

    Have never grown anything as I've never had the space (or time)...  However, I saw this video and thought that, finally, something I could do and try my hand at some tomatoes.

     

     

    Ever looked at straw bale gardening? It might fit well in a small place. 

    Just a quick link to examples. I just Googled this so tgere may be better examples.

    Wow

    I love the design of that one.

    I need one. Lol

    Kephart was very specific on his design. He spelled it out in his book. I like useful knives more than big Rambo wall hangers. 

    Nessmuk spells out a bit about a hatchet in his writing that I would love to have made. I think it cost him 3 bucks. I would hate to see the price now.  Unfortunately he does not lay out the exact details except it was a double bit. Here is what he said. Get a load of the maker. Lol

    "It was made in Rochester, by a surgical instrument maker named Bushnell. It cost time and money to get it. I worked one rainy Saturday fashioning the pattern in wood. Spoiled a day going to Rochester, waited a day for the blade, paid $3.00 for it, and lost a day coming home."

  5. I feel the key is to have a mindset and be prepared IF things happen, but not live in fear of them. There are things I can't stop. Like @GlockSpock said any of us could get hit by a car on the way home. You are gonna needs lots of therapy and meds if you concentrate on what all COULD happen. Heck, I could walk out of the mall after shopping and be picked off by a sniper from 200yds away (if I shopped at the mall). I would have no reasonable way on a daily basis to counter that. Am I going to wear full bullet proof gear every day? No, but I am gonna have situational awareness and avoid unnecessarily dangerous places. Maybe then in the mall sniper scenerio I realize a shooter is targeting people in the parking lot and duck into an interior store instead of walking into his sights blindly. 

    And yes I do believe the larger the crowd, the lower the IQ, but I also enjoy things like concerts. So I still wander into the herd once in a while.

    If you are a Amazon Prime member, you can get these $29.99 delivered 2 day free. I love pockets. Biggest problem, I get too many pocket, I forget what pocket I put things in. Actually need to have to practice a moa for them. I got tired of spending lot of money on the name brands. These are actually very comfortable and give you more options than the name brands in most cases. They feel very comfortable, ykk zippers and they seem to last.
    Free Soldier brand. They are China based so if you are a staunch supporter of Made in USA products, you may want to look elsewhere. But there are lots of brands not made here including almost all the name brands like Wrangler, Levis, Lee, etc.. 5.11 and Tru Spec are also not made in USA.
    Check them out...

    Do these run true to size? I have found lots of these Asian brands run small. Looks like 42 is the largest size so it leaves some who are prepared for hibernation out. Also, are they hot with the waterproofing? I just imagine them not breathing very well.
