    I ended up building a fence that the wife wanted hired done. Nobody was available to do the work so I started on it. I did manage to have a neighbor drill half the holes for me for $100. I dug the others by hand. I ended up finishing the fence for under $2500. It would have cost $6,000 to have built if I could have found someone to do it. So, she tells me I need to go and buy a new toy as a reward.......oh, boy! what should I get? I have had my eye on a gun but now I don't know...I may have to think about this one a while...

    All forecast models I see of possible tracks of Dorian now have moved East enough to take JAX out of the path. Possibly now aiming at N or S Carolina. My prayers are this storm stays well ut to sea and fizzles out when it hits colder waters further North.

    Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, (when Welfare was introduced) Roosevelt said, "Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land." Today, Congress has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels and mortgaged the Promised Land! I was so depressed last night thinking about Obama Care, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc .... I called a Suicide Hotline. I had to press 1 for English. I was connected to a call center in Pakistan . I told them I was suicidal. They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck...... Folks, we're screwed.

    The wife and I finally made time for a little road trip around the mountain. We did not go really far but we made a big loop through some old logging towns and up into an area I used to log in. We made it into the park land and found the trail head for riding horses up on the mountain. We also found a couple corrals for overnight camping up by the little lakes. This area has hundreds of little lakes on the east side of the volcano in the park. The trail head is on another smaller lake and this little lake has cabins you can rent from the forest service and other camp sites. Lots of people playing around today as it's the last big weekend before it starts cooling off. This lake is 10 miles from a paved road........overall it was a great trip except that the wife ordered fish tacos in a logging town......let's just say the fish was not fresh. Here is Silver lake.......there are literally hundreds of these and smaller lakes in this area.

    My hope is that the truth comes out. It would be easy to spout some cliche'. I'm not going there. What I will say is that no-knock sould be reiewed too. I can't imagine what would happen if someone kicked in my door and killed my dog. Looking from the outside I think no knock puts the officers and citizens at a higher risk.

    I was taking HCTZ for water buildup and the VA Doc took me off of it. I have felt like I was carrying some extra weight around. My ankles would swell up and take forever to go down. I got my private Doc to prescribe some for me. He said i needed to recline and lower my hear lower than my feet. My recliner does that. I would do that most of the day and after 30 minutes they would be swole up. he said okay. Dayum I have my sexy ankles and feet back even when I stand for a while. Now I feel better and actually breathe better.

    I did figure it out, and it’s exactly what you figured out. My BC was incorrect. The program allows you to pick the bullet you are shooting from a library. For whatever reason, the program didn’t save the bullet I picked, 140 gr. ELD-M. It still showed 140 gr. Bullet, but not the one I had saved. So, the BC was incorrect. And yes, once I figured that out, the numbers calculated dead nuts on to where my scope was set. I knew the error was on me, I just had to figure it out. It’s a mind bogglin thing.

    You'll be OK, Papa. You are not "losing her"; not in any way, shape, or form. In a way, I envy you your bittersweet task of letting her fly. There are only two things a good parent must do for their children. Give them strong wings and the confidence to use them. From what I have seen, your daughter has the will and ability to soar very high. Let not your heart be troubled, she will return to you in more ways than one, as the Good Lord will reward you both for raising her so well. John I get it brother, I get it. But I know there is much joy and comfort yet ahead. She will always love and need you, and you her. It's a new beginning.

    Update on the cat.....ended up taking him in and it was another bite from the same dirty critter that has messed up my cats for the fourth time now. He's juiced up and feeling no pain kicking it in the house for a few days. Give him a few more days and the gophers will be back on notice. If I can ever figure out what is fighting with these cats and biting legs I will eliminate it.

    She's just a communist b¡tch! Did you check out her credentials? "Education: University of California at Berkeley, BA in history; University of California at Berkeley" She knows nothing of conservatism, or what anyone in sane America wants. C U Next Tuesday Ms Rubin!

    True story: A full day of taking 3 different multiple choice psych tests for the PD. Thousands of questions. One consistent theme throughout a couple of the tests is: "Do you feel that someone is watching you, but when you look, no one is there " They ask it over and over in different ways to help tell if you trying to cover up your mental illness. The next day you have an interview with the shrink. I got along very well with the shrink, and we had an enjoyable and lighthearted talk. When it was time to go, I shook his hand, and looked him straight in the eye and said, "There is only one other thing I should tell you Doc, that same guy sitting in the corner (and I pointed to the empty corner) is always watching me. For about 2 seconds his face went white and his jaw dropped as I kept hold of his hand and our eyes remained locked. As the smile spread across my face it seemed as though he had the best belly laugh he had in a while. He was still chuckling as I was leaving the room, and I passed the psych test with flying colors. Cops don't apply nuts, they leave nuts.

    Good Morning, Joel ! Good Morning, Everyone ! ! This is the day the Lord hath made. Let us rejoice ! Rejoice and be Glad ! ! This is a day designed to rest, unwind, spend time with family and friends, forget your worldly troubles, and get closer to God. A prayer for all those, like First Responders and others who must work today, and that they are able to take a different day during the week to do the same.

    I've always wanted one since I was a little kid. Then I joined the Corps and it was all down hill from there. I've carried M-16s and M-4s in many a combat zone. IDK how I found this forum. Dumb Luck I guess but it's a win. The last service connected Gunny Reassembly was to much. You can't run; you must leave the Corps. After I left 23 years active duty I've built ARs in every caliber I could think of. I hunt with AR-15s and AR-10s. The scary black semi auto rifle is now in common use throughout America. Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of Liberty. – Thomas Jefferson God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it. – Daniel Webster (1834) They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. – Benjamin Franklin

    Those look good! But please remember... When testing subsonic loads, you test heavier to lighter powder charges. Which is the opposite of how we normally "work up loads". And a chronograph is a must. Just a friendly P.S.A. from one of your local reloaders. Glenn

    Don’t gotta splain to me Sir. I pretty much figured, Ive seen plenty of IL farm country. Just like people Upstate NY aren’t NYC. Just like people upstate Cali..... I lived in the Adirondack mountains as a kid. “Upstate NY” still got an aunt there that doesn’t understand why I won’t visit. I avoid all states that don’t honor my right to carry, my concealed carry permit. I’m highly decorated “like a dang Christmas tree, that and 50 cents’ll get me 50 cent cup of coffee” for combat for this country. The only reason I bring it up is because of this subject, ”vetted trust” I’ve had numerous mental health checks and background checks, held and hold clearances for National Security and, I’ve handled and been responsible for a slew of automatic weapons and destructive devices, yet, ”Sorry, you cannot carry your sidearm in this state”. really?! I Always Carry my Sidearm. always

    Hey guys, quick update. Before we moved, I was getting ready to pack up all of my reloading gear. I had some 55 gr Sierra BTHP projectiles and plenty of sized and primed brass. Knowing I'd have my stuff in boxes for a while, I loaded 100 of those with 25.0 grains of H335. It was a recipe I saw in one of the stickies here and was taking a chance on it being acceptable. Today, I swapped the Faxon barrel back on to the upper from which it came, and sighted it back in with the Strikefire II at 50 yards. With that load, I can pretty much stack shots into a one to two inch group with the red dot, off one bag. The rest wasn't the best, but it's zeroed and ready for action. This will be my new go-to load for this gun. Now, I just need to get a bunch of those Sierra pills and a few more primers! You have no idea what a relief it is to know that that barrel will shoot something well. Just thought I'd update everyone.

    Got a job from a client I've known for years. Replace a couple first floor double hung windows a a couple 7 footers on the second floor. The old ones are Marvin's from the 90's. Good windows and brand. Replacing them with new Marvin's. So I had a Marvin's rep out to measure for new ones back in April. They were delivered yesterday, so today I started tearing out the old ones on the first floor. Guess what, they have been reglazed with bulletproof glass! Each pain weighs around 60 lbs. And these are only 64" tall windows. I ran upstairs to check those, yeah, bulletproof glass as well. I'm freakin keeping these dang windows!
