    I'm number 9,822. I watched a couple of his videos the other night. It was entertaining.

    Saw this on another forum, had to share.

    I've heard, never confirmed, that that is what happens when septic tank trucks are full. They spray them on fields. I don't know if it's true but I remember hearing it from a fairly reliable source.

    Christmas gifts for the kids.

    We don't have any young ones to buy for anymore but there are a couple of items I remember being a big hit. One was a blow gun that shot Nerf darts. I bought three, one for each kid. They had a blast with those things and we told them, "No shooting at someone's face!" They were really good about it. For my middle one, I bought a T-shirt that had a black outlined picture on it. It came with a set of washable markers. She would color the picture and wear it for a couple of days. No, it never got stinky. Then it would go in the wash, come back out, she would color it again and wear it again. Of course they got a lot of other things but those two simple little gifts are a couple that really stick in my memory. We also got a couple of small R/C cars one year. We'd take turns racing them around against each other and torment the dogs with them. They were a lot of fun until they broke but we got a lot of hours of enjoyment out of them. Let us know how Christmas morning goes!

    Stuck Shell Casing in Re-sizing die...

    Thanks guys. I got it. I tried the simplest first, soaked overnight in some penetrating fluid, placed it carefully in my bench vise and worked it back and forth with a pair of channel locks. It finally came loose and pulled right out. Lesson learned! Had that not worked, I'd have gone the drill and tap route. I appreciate the feedback!

    Mix up Dawn dish washing liquid, strong, with water in a pump up sprayer and go out and hose down everything that got sprayed! Then, let it soak for about 20 minutes and wash it away with the garden hose. Sorry but tomato juice won't touch it. We've dealt with this a lot with out dogs. You have to use something that cuts the oil.

    Red dot sights

    Indeed we do! I've been spending more time with my 9mm's this past year but I sill drool like a kid with the Sears catalog every time I look at sights or triggers or ...... for the AR! Oh well, it just makes getting that little trinket that much more special when it does happen.

    I think a lot of us are in this boat. My wife is pretty tolerant and is very supportive of owning and shooting guns. She's not interested in doing it herself and doesn't want me to spend a ton of money on my toys, but she knows I like to buy about a gun per year. I usually reserve the more moderate purchases for Christmas like sights and such, but my gun purchases usually come in the Spring after and if I get a bonus for the year. With kids in college, it's been a little tighter these past couple of years. One just graduated and one still has a couple of years left. We're not paying for it but we are helping. I just bought a Strikefire II but it's for Christmas and isn't something I would just normally purchase during the year. I was going to buy her a small carry gun for when she runs but she said she'd rather carry a stick. The problem is, she wouldn't carry the stick either. I bought her some pepper spray a couple of years ago and I think it's rolling around the junk drawer in the kitchen somewhere now. Many of us feel your pain. Don't get me wrong, I adore my wife and after 27 years of marriage, we still like each other. Just wanted to chime in that many of us have the same financial adviser challenges.

    On this day of giving thanks, please remember...

    Agreed. My daughter isn't in harm's way but she is in Okinawa serving our country in the Air Force. She isn't home for Thanksgiving and won't be home for Christmas. She wants to serve and we are proud of her for it. God bless those that do.
  13. Ordered my Vortex Strikefire II from the comfort of my recliner. You can have your black friday shopping, I'll stay home.
