  1. So back from being AWOL thought I would share pictures of a buy.  When GMountain was still around, he and I used to kid each other as to who would buy a Brown Bess first.  We both wanted one but neither of us would "pull the trigger" to buy it.  Well, sometime after he died, I decided life was short.  I've always wanted one.  So, I did it.  Pictured below are two guns I purchased at the same time.  The first is a 1st Model Brown Bess.  It saw service in the Rev War.  The second is a PA flintlock.  On the top of the barrel is stamped "D. Young".  The Youngs were famous gun makers from the Lancaster area in the late 1700's and early 1800's.  One of the more famous Young rifle makers was Jacob Young.  Google "Jacob Young flintlock" and look at some his work.  Jacob is one of my 7th generation grandfather's son.  Im descended through his brother.  So in a sense this D. Young rifle is family.  Think about that for a second and it blows my mind to be able to find it for sale.  When they arrived at the house, I kind of raised my glass to GMountain and saluted him for always encouraging me to get it.

  2. Just wanted to stop in and say hello.  It's been a while.  So long I can't remember.  Good people on here!!  I will admit I got kind of bummed when GMountain died.  I'd never met him face to face but we had struck up a friendship over the years.  I still talk to a few of you guys via other avenues.  So,  for now, "howdy" and keep your powder dry!!

    So just reading this article.  The young man has a past.  Not a violent one but a past still the same.  Before I get flamed, I am a die hard 2A supporter.  I don't like any infringements.  But realistically, could we have flagged someone like this?  Im not saying take away his rights.  But if a 17 year old, has a hit list and has to be investigated by local authorities and is suspended from school, should he have to have a tougher background check? Im not saying he should be denied, but should he have an extended interview with LEO?   He waited 7 years to do anything.  Im sure he was just a memory in. most people's.minds as far as the hit list is concerned.  


    I don't like red flag laws.  I think it is just too easy to say someone who hasn't done a darn thing but maybe said some words to have their rights infringed upon.  


    What's your thoughts?

    It won't be just the Dems this time. Just watched that famous conservative, republican bulldog, Trey Gowdy, tell Fox (paraphrasing here) " The 2A means nothing if you're dead. I'm willing to give up any of my rights not to be dead." He was always touted as a real conservative republican. Many here thought he should be appointed to SCOTUS. If you think the RINO party is going to save us from the full court press the Donks are going to push, in an election year, enjoy your Kool-Aid while you can.



    What if our Founders would have said that!!!????   That is so wrong!  My ancestors did not fight in the Rev War to hear that type of crap.

    Reported but I haven't confirmed. The Dayton shooting. "He was identified as 24-year-old Connor Betts, Carper said. No information was released about a motive. His sister, 22-year-old Megan Betts, was one of the victims, police said." The way I have heard it on tv implies she was just another visitor at or near the club. Crazy.


    PS. Starting see a slow move of some repubs speaking of making "compromises" regarding the 2A.

    If his sister was there, gonna bet she and someone she was with were the main targets.  Too much of a coincidence that she just happened to be there.

    We have the ability to utterly destroy Iran's government and armed forces. What we do not have is the political will to carry out that mission.

    And what Iran and Obama / Kerry are betting on is that you re correct.  SO, how do you embarrass DJT?

    Do you find it strange that Kerry et al have been meeting with the Iranians and all this happens?  I do.  Tinfoil hat time:  Trump is killing the Obama legacy.  Obama is suck buddies with the Iranians we all know that.  What could the Iranians do to make Trump look bad?  Make him look like a war monger.   Create a negative image about Trump to help him lose the 2020 election.  You can't convince me the Iranians and Obama / Kerry aren't conspiring together.  Why would Kerry be meeting with them.  They hate the man so much, they hate our way of life so much, they are SO desperate for power, I wholly believe anything is possible.

    Starting to plan a trip to Alaska, going to drive up to Bellingham, WA and then take the Alaskan Ferry (3ish day trip) to Whittier and then if possible all the way up to Prudhoe Bay......


    Been doing lots of research on how to outfit the Raptor for this bucket list journey as it's going to be hard on both the truck and my old broken body......


    Thinking about going with a Leitner Design ACS rack/pod system, a decked drawer system and then a hard top tent on top of the Leitner Design ACS.......and then on the deck drawer mounting the spare tire/jack and such along with a ARB rugged fridge/freezer system and wiring in a Zamp Solar kit of some kind along with a Viair on board air system.......


    Anybody ever driven to Alaska and back :tongue:


    Any tip, tricks, hints on making the trip in one piece.......:tiphat:


    The truck as she now sits......



    Trick that Raptor out!!  I wanna see how much it costs!!
