  1. Well…. It’s been a while fellas! Sorry to have been so absent the last few years! (Wow, years really!). this place was my internet home for so very long but life has just been crazy lately. After child number 3 My amount of free time has been very limited. Recently we have seen even more excitement. We were blessed last fall with the opportunity to purchase a 7 acre piece of property that we have wanted for a very long time. This spring we listed our house for sale and had an offer within 3 weeks!! so we have quickly transitioned into building mode. We are currently living in our 39’ travel trailer on the property while we are building our home. I am acting as the general contractor as well as doing as much of the work as I can my self. we are at day 37 of the build. the house is completely framed up and the roof is half on. Should be completely under roof by the end of the week. The house is 4 bed room 3 bath. 2750 sq feet with an attached 40x60 garage/man cave! the garage is big enough to pull our camper into so that we can live in it indoors this winter while we finish the house. I am also planning a man cave room inside the garage that is aprox 20x20 that will be heated and cooled for my gun, reloading, and hunting stuff. I hope everyone here has been well and i hope all of the usual suspects are still around. I’ll try to be less of a stranger around here. and if any of you want to follow our build more closely and are on Facebook we have a blog page called J5farmshouse.
  2. RIP my friend. You were always a help and a positive influence.

    Hey calebj06

    Can a guy show up like 8 months late and say thank you?? you know what is great, I logged back into the armory this morning and I KNEW, with no doubt in my mind, that there would be a birthday tread from Joel that I had missed! Been missing you guys.
  4. Good morning boys!
  5. Made a bacon weave (simple but YouTube if you need) Cover it in brown sugar Drizzle it in maple syrup Coat a bonelsss turkey breast in any bbq rub you like. (I use 3lb turkey breast from Walmart, netting removed). Set the turkey in the weave and wrap it up. On the smoker at 250 for 3-4 hours. Until 160-165 IT.

  7. So this article states that many of the braces were never submitted for approval. that then begs the question, which ones WERE submitted for approval and approved?? i was going to buy one tomorrow........
  8. We are going to build exactly what your talking about with the 300 blackout. She’s super excited about it too!!!
  9. Hey fellas. Deer season is upon us here in IL and the rut is in full swing. my 8yr old daughter took her first deer earlier this year with a crossbow. (4pt buck). now she wants to go shotgun hunting. Im wondering what would be a good youth shotgun with a rifled barrel for an 8yr old girl!!??? something with scope mounts for sure. thanks guys.
  10. So I bought my daughter a savage rascal for her 8th birthday. she loves it, but struggles a bit with the small little peep hole. so I’m wanting to get her a red dot so that she can get familiar with shooting and looking through an optic. any recommendations on something small and low mounted so that she doesn’t have cheekweld problems? We don’t really need something crazy expensive as it probably won’t be on there long. I will also add, she’s having some problems closing one eye. She is right handed but left eye dominant (just like her mom and myself!). I have been helping her by covering her right eye and her accuracy goes WAY up.
  11. Well I’m back as well!! but as far as sarge goes.............well......... no comment.
  12. Good morning boys!!!!
  13. Well mom called the other day. She has decided she wants a pistol for self protection, the AR is not enough. (Not my first choice for her anyway). She’s 60 and lives alone. Small frame and weak hands. I was leading her towards the new shield EZ but she handled a friends revolver and said that’s what she wants. Point and pull the trigger. Nothing more. so I’m looking for advice. Maybe something a touch longer than a true snubbie??? any brands to stay away from? (Don’t wanna go crazy on money but she can afford to buy quality.). oh and she would like it to be pink if that’s a possibility!! Lol.
