    Labor Day plans

    I'll be running the pumps to keep the state from sinking.

    Rain, Rain Go Away.....

    Rains almost everyday somewhere around here. Heat index was 112 at 12:30. Had a warning on my phone this morning when I woke up. Sucks!

    Senator Rick Scott doesn't care about your rights!

    Senator Rick Scott is a scumbag. He and his wife were both suspected of insurance fraud associated with the medical company he ran. Cost the state of Florida big bucks.

    The Chemist is working PT again

    You are correct. Insidious little bastiages. My brother bought some Chigarid while we were there, I drove home thinking it would not be hard to find there. Nope, nada, none to be found. You can use New Skin or clear nail polish to help rid yourself of the little demons.
  7. Is she going to go door to door and confiscate all the bongs and glass pipe? I guess not because she is OK with drugs.

    The Chemist is working PT again

    Last month I had the chance to spend some time with my brother at a friends cabin in Tennessee. We had the run of the place and another cabin he owned on a mountainside. Well, to make a long story short, we had a run in with "red bugs." My first ever and hopefully my last. For something you can't hardly see, they caused a lot of agony. I would have loved to have prior knowledge and something to combat them with. Made for a really miserable finish to an otherwise pleasant week. I had to paint myself with "new skin" for a week and bomb the hell out of my truck. Any remedy would have been god sent.

    Mass Stabbing Incident / Where's the Outcry?

    "The suspect and all the victims were Hispanic, he added." Doesn't fit the Dem's propaganda narrative.

    When did the AR15 become so popular?

    When they became as readily available and easy to put together as Leggos?

    IS there anything we can do about shootings?

    Do away with gun free zones. Stop turning public places into slaughter houses. Let the sheep dogs roam free. My wife doesn't ask why I carry anymore. She comes from a very regimented society IE: South Korea. No gun exposure at all until she hit the states. Now she doesn't even blink when the hand gun slips into my pocket or goes on my belt.

    SKS with mismatching trigger

    You don't want to be that guy, there are too many of them out there already. If you want another number matching Norinko SKS, I just saw one in a pawn shop in Cookeville, TN about 2 weeks ago for $399.
  13. When I started with the special navigation unit, that was are primary comms with the survey ship. Later we switched to the Motorola Micom S HF rigs. What a pain in the ass they were. This is a no shitter, we used to wash the Collins radios with non ionic soap after pulling out all the tubes. They would get a rinse and then sit on the hoods of deuce and a halfs until dry. Then, we would take apart all the trimmer caps and clean them, stuff the tubes back in and do a full alignment. They were some tuff radios, just add a full crystal pack and away you go. I got lucky one deployment a scored the only Collins linear on the boat. Even with bad tubes, it would still dim the lights and hit 500w output. That was on Cape Guardafui, Somalia, what a fun place that was. If you Google it, I have better pictures of the lighthouse then Google.
  14. Once upon a time, we were conducting a coastal survey off of Lewes, Delaware. We used an old Collins KWM-2A HF radio to communicate with the survey ship. One day it quit and the senior chief in charge called us to fix it. It had a blown fuse in the power supply caused by a mouse that had crawled inside. Now this mouse wasn't very fresh and the radio was in the senior's room. We originally thought the smell was from his running shoes, but we found that not to be true after locating the mouse. We changed the fuse and left the mouse. We couldn't stand that arsehole senior chief.

    4064 and 4227....

    I use 4227 to load subsonic 208gr. .300 BO rounds. Hardly any noise fired through a Saker 7.62 suppressor.
