  1. I'll forward a pic of my Daughter.....she is in her second year at OSU and I could use an extra "eye".....
  2. Well hello neighbor! I did screw up. I didn't mean Independence....but Sheridan. Saw a nice rural two acres for a decent price I want to look at unless it is gone before I get there. Had a long day on the road between Watson Lake, Yukon to Fort Nelson, BC. Beautiful scenery! Lots of mountain roads and road work. Hit a corner full of loose gravel and did a little "General Lee" in the RV. My wife had to change her shorts....but I did O.K.....(I'll change mine when she isn't looking)
  3. Looking in the rural areas near Salem for a house. We like Turner, Dallas, Independence and McMinville so far........
  4. Stress. stress and stress. Whether it is financial, social or personal, stress is a killer of libido. Me and my wife just quit our jobs, sold the house and properties, bought an RV and are currently sitting in Teslin, Yukon Territory on the way to our new adventures in Oregon (we are from Juneau, Alaska). She worked a high stress job in the legal field, I owned two businesses and we were STRESSED! On top of that, we both did volunteer search and rescue (we have a rescue dog named Guinness Frasier Stout), I was in EMS and Fire service as a volunteer for 10 plus years....why were we stressed?!? I noticed a few years back that the "spark" picked up when we were able to fly south for a game or shopping trip......well, time to make it a little more permanent. I'll let you know how well it works!
  5. And suddenly the zoo had an unexpected gravity failure......
  6. Judging from another video I just watched, this guy is a TOTAL ShatHead. He's picking fights, not correcting perceived constitutional violations. He probably makes his living suing the Feds based on illegal detention. As far as I'm concerned, this fella probably asked for every volt he got.
  7. If this guys is not exaggerating...and I feel he may be, as you heard the story go from the BP holding his head down to "beaten to a pulp" as his anger elevated... the BP should be investigated and punished for any violation. However, we should all wait for that investigation to expose the facts of the incident. Just because this guy is a pastor doesn't mean he isn't a total butt head or a liar. The tapes will tell the truth. I believe that in the interest of protecting ourselves, we have all agreed to comply with laws that could be considered invasive. Think of airport security. What if this same guy refused to take off his shoes or have his bag inspected at the airport? He just wanted to be allowed to board the plane as he shouldn't have his constitutional rights violated? Would you consider his act a reasonable protest in support of his rights? Doubt it. What is the difference with the internal border patrol checkpoints? If anyone can cry "constitution!" to avoid compliance, it isn't a far stretch that those who NEED to avoid searches for obvious, illegal reasons, will have a new tool to use.....is it worth it?
  8. I'd trade ya for an Eotech 3xFTS......
  9. Nope. Theres plenty of tension in the spring to keep it from moving. You have to shake it pretty violently to get it to flop at all.
  10. Its a 3x "flip to side" magnifier.

  12. Just a quick thank you for spreading the disease to Alaska! I am happy to report, that although you infected me, you all also followed through with helping me to determine what to buy, where to buy, as well as helping with oddball questions like where to move in Oregon, accessorizing....and just about anything a guy would want to ask! I am afraid that some things are out of bounds, and I apparantly crossed that line. I apologize to those offended, as that was not my intent. After my initial whipping, it became apparent that some people were bent beyond repair, and that this site will no longer be the "refuge" from the daily grind that I enjoyed so much. I sincerely appreciate the input, laughs and serious commentary that has been available to me. And since I have no idea how to shut this topic down after posting, I ask Noneya, in all his brilliance, to lock it up. I just wanted to let you all now that this is a great forum, and I would (will) reccomend it to anyone! Best of luck to you all, Tim
  13. TS was also instrumental in my purchase. Thanks again TS!
  14. I just picked up a couple of Charles Daly M4LE's and am very happy with them. I have added Eotech holo sights and have magnifiers on the way. I am looking for some nice quad rails to add other goodies....soon. Enjoy!!
  15. Well if I were an intruder, nothing would scare me more than you coming at me with KY and a condom!
  16. Now if there is enough room for the 3x without some sort of adaptor, I'll be VERY happy!
  17. Just got back from the range.....minus 100+ rounds. Eotech had said that if installed on a factory build, it should need little effort to sight in. Well, both (yep, bought two) had to be adjusted significantly while sighting for both elevation and windage. I am wondering if the handguard kicks the front up a little? It looks like it might BARELY touch the handguard, but I suppose that is all it would take. It doesn't appear to sit unevenly on the rail, so I am not sure. Regardless, I had a blast once I got it grouping pretty good. I can't wait for the 3x to show up and get that dialed in too!
  18. Cabela's actually managed second day air to Alaska! Thats a first for me......but I'm happy! I just got my Eotech 517 and mounted it as far forward as I could, and am hoping my 3x magnifier will fit snugly behind it.
