    Morel Mushroom question

    I just discovered a cache of Morel mushrooms growing right next to my house!!! I bought one of the family homes in a large timber and my uncle (who built/previously owned the home) NEVER let anyone on the land to hunt them and I don't think he hunted them much either, so the area has been protected for decades. My question is.....If I want to propagate the mushrooms and attempt to have continued (and hopefully increasing numbers) of them, should I leave them in place and not "pick" them? Is there a way to capture or process the spores and distribute them back into the soil that apparently is ideal for them because theyare so thick, I had to be careful NOT to step on them. They are growing in an area around dead trees (probably dead Elm) and in a soft soil on a hillside, up from a creek bottom. I'd love to just pick them and eat them up, but if there is a way to propagate them, I can be patient in the attempt to keep them coming back year after year in the same place. Thanks!

    Question for First Responders and ER Personnel.

    Yes, as part of the initial rapid head to toe assessment. Then, ask bystanders and/or family/friends (if present/available) to fill in the gaps, especially if the patient is unconscious or altered mental status. If you don't have a med-ID, you can also put "ICE" (in case of emergency) as a primary contact in your cell phone.....There was a push for people to do this years ago, but I think it may not be as useful as once thought, especially with smart phones that require a password to unlock just to see the contacts list.

    Custom 1911 Grips

    I can also attest to the quality and fit of jchtrh's walrus ivory grips!!! I purchased a set years ago and they are the pinnacle/crowning touch to my Colt Gold Cup 1911. They will be an heirloom piece, so I'd snag a set now if ya can!!! Very rare to get genuine walrus ivory and he does a great job selecting the pieces he carves to show off the natural "grain" that is ONLY found on true ivory (unlike the cheap, imitation grips that just look like all white PLASTIC...because they are). His are the real deal! QUALITY, QUALITY, QUALITY!!! I actually want to buy another 1911, just so I can get another pair of ivory grips from him! LOL
  4. Looking to buy or maybe even borrow (don't worry I would return it) a rear sight adjustment tool for Beretta 92/96 model pistols. I just can't see spending the price for a new tool just to use it for a few minutes. The Beretta specific tool is supposed to be more "gentle" on the firearm than universal ones. Please let me know if you have any thoughts! Thanks, -Medic07

  6. I have a series 80's Colt Gold Cup National Match and, lately, have been wondering about installing the Wilson Combat full length guide rod/spring kit that has been sitting around for years. I know a lot of folks say "the original short GI guide rod and spring has worked well for 100 years so why change it" but I do like the idea of a full length guide rod anyway. If I do install the kit with the full length (1 piece) guide rod, what spring should I use if mainly shooting 230gr Winchester FMJ rounds for plinking?. The colt originally came with a 16# spring and a lighter 10-12# spring for light handloads/wadcutter loads. The Wilson combat came with a light 10# spring for the same handloads/wadcutters and also a 18# spring for heavier loads. If I do use the full length guide rod, should I use the original 16# spring or use the 18#...I have heard that the 18# can damage the barrel link and/or guide pin bu being slammed into battery too hard with a too heavy (18#) spring. I know each gun's "personality" and tuning is different but was just looking for some general guidelines for spring weight to load specs and if anyone also has heard if using the heavy 18# spring can cause damage (I know using too light a spring can cause damage too) so wanted a happy medium. P.S. I always use a Wilson Combat Shock-buff "rubber" pad to protect/tame the frame from battery damage no matter what size rod or spring used. Thanks!
  7. Hey, I'm looking for a Beretta Sight removal tool (to remove/replace the rear sight) for use on my Beretta M9 or 92 (I think the same tool can be used for both???). I want to install the optional Beretta adjustable sight on an M9 ;) Looking to either buy (for a reasonable price) or borrow the tool and return it. Check my status and or ask around and you will see a borrow option is safe with me. Thanks, guys...Let me know what ya have!

    Beretta 92F

    I know Beretta has alot of haters, but they are fun to plink with. I really enjoy plinking with my M9. That price sounds GTG...I'd get it, especially if it hasn't been beaten up or doesn't have 25K rounds through the pipe. Enjoy!
  9. ...And, the conversions "only cost about $4 (according to MSNBC "Morning Joe") to $90 (other media estimates) and are available online everywhere". ......ahhh, yea, OK. Glad the media that initiated and propagates the left wingnut politicians wet dreams for "far sweeping gun reform" is soooo well up to date on facts and knowledgeable regarding all guns /magazines/availablility/legality and their uses and effective target ranges and most importantly, ONLY SINGLE SHOT SHOTGUNS OR BOLT ACTION COWBOY GUNS ARE GOOD FOR HUNTING...everything else is "just made to kill other humans'! What MSNBC anchors modge-podge together as an "investigative piece" is what the swamp dwellers take to the hill....literally with not much more info/facts/knowledge/experience thanvwhat they have seen on youtube....Come on! and the biggest piece of crap is when the politicians take the libertards words as facts and try to put them in a bill they actually have no real idea of what they are talking about. It's laughable, truly laughable!
  10. I wonder how the security will adjust to the next Shot-Show scheduled for this January in Vegas?

    Yep, but I bet the "enhanced video" will reveal 2 different hair balms being used versus a single hairspray.

    Sorry for your loss! Mtown hospital got bought out by the Hospital group I work for (the "big 1" in Waterloo and surrounding areas)...The changes in Mtown seem to be a good thing but it is just going to take a while for them to get the transition kinks worked out. I know alot of the staff from Waterloo (and surrounding affiliates) are now going to Mtown, and the ones I know are very good. They were using alot of traveling (out of state) staff to cover the ER before and at the start of the transition but the Docs I know and some of the "new" management there now are great. Let me know when you are near...maybe we can "catch-up" if I don't work when you are around....Though it is going to be a long weekend for me beginning tomorrow.

    Hey Rampy!...I know the sniper shoot and scoot. Was a little tongue and cheek, tin foil hat poking comment. Good to see u still lurking around here.

    where would you start

    Thanks...Good to be back. Somehow got way busy with my new home projects and work. Ended up spending most my free time with additional training/certifications for my medical career. Plus had to rebuild my reloading area in the new house. With all the other stuff going on, I left the poor loading supplies boxed up until I finally got some free time.

    Why do you think there were 2 windows broken out???...There was plenty of field of view from any 1 window that high up...Why the hell would 1 person need 2? Would only need 2 if there was return fire and needed a secondary place to jump to, and I don't think there was any return fire from the ground was there?...If so, what reasonable LEO would take pot shots into a HUGE hotel with bystanders probably glued to their windows surrounding his room?

    Do you think this will end up being terrorism?

    Tinfoil hat--- check. Might be something to it, though.

    Do you think this will end up being terrorism?

    I think her greed (shady, gold digging, mail order bride wanting her share of the inheritance-at the VERY least...who knows what else she is into) will get the best of her. If she knew she was a "person of interest" before she left that armpit of the world she probably would have never got on the plane.

    Ahh, yea...Dragon lady has 2 social security numbers, was married to 2 guys at the same time, and now arrives back to the US in a friggin wheelchair as Feds snatch her up. She has some shady shat going on. At the very least she is a scamming mail order bride but I think there is more to her story than that!

    Opinion: Media Continue to Flounder During Gun Coverage

    ...1 guy says "we have a 200 year supply of guns in the country and a 2 year supply of ammo, so that's where we should start (banning)".....ahhhhh,

    Opinion: Media Continue to Flounder During Gun Coverage

    Ohhh, a panel of libtards about to "lay down the gospel" about gun control on MSNBC this AM...Is it too early for popcorn to enjoy with this fumble f#%k of a comedy trainwreck??? And according to the panel "bumpstocks" are "available everywhere online for $5-40"...Where are they shopping around at, CTD?

    where would you start

    I use a bullet ramp and load single shot style in my Remy 700...That way, I can get them as long as I want without worrying about clearances. I think I started 0.005 off the lands and found a sweet spot 0.015 off.

    ...she has to know something! I hope she doesn't get any insurance money if he indeed shot himself before SWAT got the chance.

    I'm glad dragon lady is back in the US...She had to show up sometime to claim her inheritance or insurance money sooner or later...In the meantime, anyone up for waterboarding?
