    Tried to pm you. Your box is full or turned off. have an add on F-B marketplace MikeH
  3. For those in the North East (or those who want a long drive) as I am in South East CT.I have a GSA Class 5 weapons safe that i bought on auction a couple of years ago. It is big enough to store AR sized rifles. In the current configuration, it is filled with drawers w/roller slides. A number of those are for pistols (like in an armory). It was in a US Air Force Investigations office originally. This IS NOT your typical fire rated gun safe! It is 1200 pounds of hardened steel with a X series digital rotary dial lock (no batteries required). It is on a pallet (laying on its side) and on a stand that I built to unload from my truck. A trailer or a flatbed truck would be best (with a winch to pull off the stand. Price is $450 PM me MikeH
  4. looks like i will be transitioning to a crossbow this year. injured my shoulder earlier this year and can't draw my Mathews compound. if i could afford to get a left handed unit, i could do it. Just can't pull. Need to pull the crossbow rated target out from storage and sight the darn thing in. Looks like the deer were playing soccer with the mineral block.......it was across the yard this morning. Let them play.
  5. If the 8pt. shows up in Sept, hopefully he’ll graduate to ‘Freezer Camp’
  6. Well, a couple of other got included in “The Hangout”. The first 5 were the 2014 doe, the next 2 were 2018 button buck. The rest are this summers critters, a doe wife named “Tawny”, spike buck “Bucky”, 8 pt. buck “Cecil”, I don’t know which raccoon, or rabbit’s name. Then, the other day a bobcat showed up. 2 raccoon families, several rabbits, many squirrels and over a dozen deer regularly come through my yard (most daily). Add 2 skunks and 3 opossums and several falcons & hawks (who fly in for takeaway meals........sometimes they bring their meals). The wife can indentify nearly every one. Most of the ground critters come into the yard when she calls.......even the deer. We were out on the deck having a smoke and drink with the flood lights on and 4 deer came in and just started grazing. Cecil found some corn that I put out and ran every body else off. The wife called them back.....and scolded Cecil about his very unsociable behavior! They were around for about a half hour. Then they just walked up the hill. Bucky and Cecil were back about 1.5 hours later. Will add pics to the link in first post as time goes on. There’s a 12 pt. out there that’s pretty big, haven’t seen him much, hasn’t tripped the game cam yet. MikeH
  7. Meet Cecil and Bucky The last 2 pics. http://img.gg/QD9sIAP

    Nice! Still working on building my double drum “Rumbler”. Finally found a switch box that will fit the timer switch. Just need to do some welding and drilling to get a frame together and bolt the bearing mounts for the rollers and drives. MikeH

    Getting ready to our house on the market. Need to get rid of some stuff. (12) 7mm Mag R-P (48) 7mm-08 R-P (19) .30-06 R-P small quantity of 5.7 still sorting Small quantity of .40 S&W still sorting sorting is freaking tedious! Not to mention just packing up what I’m keeping! i think I bagged 1k .45 ACP, 500 .308, 1k+ 10mm, 500 Beowulf, and I just started. pm me with your interests. MikeH
  12. Was going through the safe and fingered through some papers. Found the State paperwork for the above receiver. Lo and behold the type box was checked “other”. Considering where I live, it’s outstanding——-not really. I’ll have to wait until I leave here to put it together. But, I see a possible 300BO pistol in my future. Need to find the papers for the others now, and see what they are marked as. MikeH
  13. Wife found a cure for Pelosi poisoning. Combine a Trump card, a Six-Pence and a Graham cracker well then spread liberally! good day all
  14. Been in Kommifornia for a couple of weeks visiting my wife’s fam. Was in the Base liquor locker wandering down the bourbon isle looking for something new. We have been introducing Mom & Dad to a higher class of booze. 4 Roses, Woodford Reserve, Elijah Craig for sipping and on the rocks. So far the Woodford is a high fave. Found a bottle on sale of KC reserve 120 and said what the hell. I have to say, while this is some pretty high octane whiskey it is smooth without blowing the top of your head off (when gently and slowly sipping). WOW the flavor travels around without a harshness, doesn’t sear your throat at all! Can be poured over rocks or mixed with something light. As we put quite a dent in that bottle on Christmas while a Dad and I worked on dinner then after while doing presents. The gals also thought it was a smooth drink. I made everyone take a just a tongue-dip from a shot glass and just let it sit before they could have it their way. Dad and I both went back to get another bottle from the store before the sale was off. This is gonna be hidden in the back of the hutch for specials only. Disclaimer: I am not employed by any liquor manufacturer or retailer. Just an old retired sailor who occasionally likes to try to find a different but nicer ( to me) adult beverage. I learned looonnnnggggg ago, I don’t do clear liquors- we just don’t get along. Living near the Gulf Coast when i became of age to drink, I found a liking for Kentucky Bourbon. I have tried other liquors over the years. There are a couple of the amber rums, a rye or two, same with scotch that I find good, but I always come back to bourbon. Merry Christmas and may all have a Happy New Year! Please drive responsibly. MikeH
  15. https://imgur.com/a/4B9OPTs just hanging out https://imgur.com/a/ZXaLrpe Damaged broadhead and my SOG Seal, Awesome knife! Gutted, skinned, and hacked bones. 1 pm my wife wakes me up saying “there’s a deer in the yard!” Roll out put on my jeans and mocosin slippers and head to the dining room, where she is pointing out the slider glass at a deer wandering down the hill and along the edge of the yard. Grab my old Matthews bow off my bakers rack and pull an arrow. Watch out the door to get a feel for his attitude. Which is totally oblivious! Open the door go down and around the fence . . . Thawk! He looks a little surprised and a little hurt as he limps 3 legged across the yard back up the hill and falls over, done. had released on a quartering toward, but he turned slightly just before impact. I though that the arrow had slipped along the outside of the ribs and into the shoulder joint and got the brachial artery and attaching stuff. Until I got into the nitty gritty of dressing out the shoulder. Apparently, the tip slammed into the top of the leg bone and shattered it. Found large bone fragments in the wound with only the outer muscle holding the leg on. Tendons, cartilage and all the large blood vessels were destroyed. So was my expandable broadhead. The bone hit and movement of the leg and shoulder bones twisted the blades. Open door to final drop less than 5 minutes. Then I had to call in to work with the “Deer Flu”. He’s in ‘Freezer Camp’ cooling off. Honestly, this small button buck is about all I could fit in my freezer. I lost my garage side by side this summer and haven’t found a replacement. But there are a few large does that come through and at least one 6 point buck that looks fairly large if the shadowed night time pics and deep hoof prints in the yard are any indication. Any of these tripping on the way to the freezer would prompt the purchase of a new chest freezer! MikeH
