  1. Saw the title and thought, well, I’ve never dated in any of those categories except for maybe the prehistoric category, but I’d prefer not to talk about that.
  2. Dang, there's BEARly any room in that tree.
  3. My neighbor breeds golden retrievers. Before his wife passed away she stayed in bad health for quite a while. I remember her telling me about one of her dogs helping her out in that regard just out of instinct. I’ve always thought that dogs are much more intelligent and intuitive than we give them credit for. I always had Labs and Rottweilers, with a few good ole mutts scattered in. I have a Shepherd now. I can tell you I am absolutely sold, so I don’t think you could go wrong there, especially with that one you have picked out. They’re known for extreme loyalty. I’m no expert of course (not even all that knowledgeable), but I would guess that most of the stout large breed dogs with strong family instinct might be a good fit for your intended role.
  4. I of course have to open carry at work. But when I’m off it’s always concealed. My personal preference is that I don’t want to have all my cards showing. I am seeing a little more open carry in my area. I do occasionally engage people in a conversation when I see it, but it’s normally about whatever interesting gun they’re packing at the time. I’ve met some good people that way.
  5. Man, people have really jumped in headfirst to help. It’s been absolutely amazing to me, and humbling, to see people from far and wide coming to help these people.
  6. I worked over there Monday and Tuesday. Going back tomorrow. So many hurting souls.
  7. It’s because he was a strong voice for conservative values. I told my wife yesterday that the leftists will have a large and festive time with this. Hopefully he’s resting in the arms of the Lord now.
  8. I’d never partake in a thread drift. Speaking of that, have you seen the price of eggs lately?
  9. Yeah there ya go! That Hog Hunter fits my vision of a perfect general “do-all” rifle for a man to have. I always loved the look of a bolt rifle with a scope and old fashioned irons. Here’s where I confess to the fact that a CZ 550 FS .308 or a Ruger RSI .308 are my dream guns. Nice porker in the other picture too. Looks tasty.
  10. Yeah I’ve been wanting to look into the Primary Arms scope. I hear they’re good stuff. I need to add a couple scopes to the stable anyway.
  11. Not so dumb of a statement at all, and I get where you’re coming from. I’ve never had to remove a scope either......well there was that one time when a rifle came with a cheap scope on it and it failed......and I smashed it right there. But other than that, I’ve never had a good quality scope fail me and likely never will. This is a short, light, handy, general purpose rifle that I’m putting a Leupold scope on. I know I’ll likely never need to remove the scope. So I’m aware that there’s no need whatsoever for what I’m doing. But, do you ever just do something, knowing there’s no realistic need for it, but you still just want to? Probably the same reason I ride motorcycles I guess.
  12. Awww shucks. That’s a beauty right there. I’m having serious thoughts lately about trying to trade my Street Glide Special on a Heritage or Fatboy or Road King. But my dream is a Softail Deluxe. I just want to go back to that style of scoot. I like the old fashioned style.
  13. Welllll.............???? Any luck?
  14. (Posted this earlier in the Longuns section, but then thought I should’ve posted it here.) Just traded into a Ruger Gunsite Scout. Wound up with the 16” barrel, composite stock model. Really wanted to find the 18” barrel version, but I didn’t. I didn’t want this for the whole “scout” concept with the forward mounted scope, just my version of the concept being a light (ish) handy rifle in .308 with iron sights. I plan to mount my Leupold 4x on the receiver in low QD rings. I also want to have a peep sight in place instead of having to carry the Ruger sight around with me. I may wind up with the XS scout rail since it has its own peep sight, and it’s the only option I know of. But I really don’t want or need that much real estate on top since I’ll never mount anything but a traditional scope. Are there any shorter options out there for a “Ruger-to-Weaver” type rail with a rear peep sight, other than the XS system?

  16. I was actually looking for a Dyna Lowrider when I ran across this deal on my Street Glide Special. Still wish I had found a smoking deal on a Dyna, or especially a Heritage, which is what I’m looking for now. Keep in mind that the Fat Boy is a Softail as well, just like the Heritage you rode. If possible, take that 2007 to a good Harley tech and see if they have a way to check the crank. I’ve heard ‘07 was not a good year for cranks, but of course don’t take my word for that. While you’re searching you might start looking up some videos on better/worse year models for whichever style you want. Kevin Baxter has some good videos out there, along with other pros. I’m not a pro, I just play one in my dreams. So my advice is worth slightly less than what you paid for it.
  17. Well they can’t have that going on. Now somebody will start trying to peddle dogs in packs of 7.
  18. Kinda makes ya wonder why the cleaning person was in THAT room, since, as the article stated, they hadn't been cleaning rooms for a bit. And, why didn't the doofus put out the "Do Not Disturb" door hanger? But it also makes me wonder what HE was up to. And why would anyone be dumb enough to go to chicago in the first place?
  19. Yamaha V-Stars are good. I wouldn’t recommend doing what my friend’s son did, which was a Honda 250 street bike for a starter. Barely enough power for riding locally. Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha mid-range bikes are good to start. If he already has the fundamentals down he might could bump up a couple of levels for a bike he could use long term. Harley 883 Sportster would be a great choice for something he could use for at least a few years and move up from there.
  20. Meth fueled in-breeding. The creepy part is that it looks like the little girl on the bike has no legs and it looks like half of a baby in half of a baby crib all the way to the right. Might be because I’m looking at it on a phone. I dunno. Might be descendants of the Adams family. Or the family from Wrong Turn.
  21. Glad she’s improving. Praying for you and your baby.
  22. I dunno. But I ain’t gonna ask her while she’s packin a rifle.
  23. The last role I remember him in was Shooter. One of my favorite movies and I thought he did a very good job in that one.
