  1. I used Remington bolt actions rifles exclusively when hunting deer in Missouri when younger and some years we hunted in the rain.  I glass bedded my wood stock bolt rifles with Accu-glas gel and freefloated the barrel.  This was before synthetic stocks were popular. The last step I used was to seal barrel channel of stock with several light coats of Truoil.  I never had any wood warpage that affected accuracy that was noticed.  While the temps in MO might not compare to Alaska we had some years it was extremely cold and wet.

  2. Check out “green laser therapy”.   Cleans channel like u would a ditch. Lol. Less painful than RR and recovery is quick.  Outpatient surgery and go home with catheter. Get in bathtub and remove it next morning.  No pain.

    SSD drive prices are dropping a eventually they will be he norm. Right now you have to make a choice, size and speed vs. cost. 

    To change that drive from a 1TB SATA to a 512 SSD is $147 to a 1TB SDD is $343. An XPS with a SATA hard drive is going to start fast. A SSD might start a few seconds faster. Other than startup; you aren’t doing anything that can take advantage of the speed of a SSD.

     

    My thoughts are not a fair comparison for the OP but I would probably buy the computer you recommended or one similar and use the 1T SSD hard drive that I already purchased from Newegg on sale to install windows 10 and use the hard drive that came with computer for storage if configuration permits. 

    I installed a fast SSD hard drive on older toshiba laptop that hasn’t seen a lot of use and it runs better now than new. 

  4. I have used 3” lead BB’s with full choke hunting coyotes but usually hunt with someone .  One of the persons usually have rifle. I was using Foxpro electronic call and Foxpro decoy.  The last one I killed was with shotgun at 30 yards. It was locked down on decoy until I dropped the hammer.  I hunt SE Missouri. 

  5. Corn was planted later than normal in SE Missouri due to wet spring and flooding. Normally we have excellent dove hunting but it seems we didn’t get the migration from Northern states. Not a lot of doves except local crop that raised here.  I didn’t hunt because after scouting 2 days before season opened couldn’t bring myself to get up early and fight mosquitos for a few birds. 

  6. When KelTec first started manufacturing the .32 and .380 Mo HWY Patrol were issued first the .32 then later the .380. This was about the time Missouri started issuing Concealed Carry permits. I was considering buying one of the first versions of the .380 KT. I asked a Mo State Trooper friend of mine if they had any history with the .380. He said he had worked 3 homocides that were results of people being shot with .380.  2 of them were one shot kills and the third had a magazine dump into him.  If shooter does his part I think the .380 will be plenty. I like the CM 9 Kahr personally but when I can’t carry the Kahr the KT .380 tags along.  

  7. If you are in an enclosed blind it may warm the space. I have used a heater that appears to produce more BTU’s than the one in picture and it sat on a 20 lb LP bottle like Bersa mentioned. The blind I was in had open area to shoot and the heater was a good hand warmer but didn’t warm blind much.

    I always carry an extra mag for my P32.  And when I get the LCP out of lay-a-way, I will purchase an extra mag for it too.  Which brings up another question.   I use a leather pocket holster for my P32 in the right front pocket and I just put the extra mag in my left front pocket with my keys and pocket knife of the day.  Any of you all carry an extra mag in a pocket holster or do you just put in your front pocket? 

    I have a RJ (Lisa) Hedley leather holster right pocket and a leather sheath from same source for magazine in left pocket.  Kahr CM 9 mostly and .380 Keltec for dress pants.

    Talked to a local guy today who is one of those hobby is "weather", his totals for last night's snow was 8", on top the ice and snow we got last week.

    Sikeston, Mo and Dexter got approximately 7- 8” of dry snow yesterday and last night. MoDot has I-55 almost clear from St Louis to Arkansas line. KFVS tv at Cape Girardeau forecast 1-2” of snow for that one but front stalled over SEMO and apparently West KY and NW TN. 

  10. I carry cash and use CC for gas, etc but feel broke if I don’t have several benjies in my wallet.  Some places here in Sikeston don’t take plastic like Lambert’s and local gun shop. Lambert’s have an ATM if customers need it.

    I would suggest that you consider K&D Holsters. Kevin made a Cochise Defender for my M&P .40c and I have never owned a better holster. It is top drawer and Kevin was great to deal with. Here are a few pics of mine.
     

    I have 3 of Kevin Manley holsters dba K & D Holsters but if I remember correctly he had health problems and shut down business around 2009 approximately.

  12. Speedcrete (patch) can be used to fill in the imperfections but will be noticeable. If you have someone that makes  Concrete pipe in the area they should have some available. I would pour another and use no more than 3" slump with 7.5 bag of cement/yd. 6" slump reduces the strength a lot.  Rent or buy a vibratory that can be clamped to frame to consolidate the concrete rather than a stick vibrator.
