    Gay Cake issue

    Not flagrantly flamboyant like carrot cake or upside-down cakes, but it was a little bit out there. I mean, who puts the letter "d" in bundt cake if not to draw attention.

    A Little Warm?

    I'm starting to wonder if Lower Alabama is the second closest planet to the sun. I used to only think it was the armpit of the south.

    California Earthquake??? Tail Of The Dragon..

    The earthquake has grabbed my attention, as it's epicenter was only 11 miles away from the town i grew up in. I still have one cousin in that nothing town. I've felt many quakes growing up in that desert, but nothing as strong as the 7.1 they just got.

    Some of you may not get this...

    Got it, and I'm only 41
  8. Do you not find it odd that a "mass shooting" involving a suppressor happened right before SCOTUS was set to decide if they were going to take up this case?

    Cool as hell!

    I've had the same thing happen here. Mr. Bully bird will sit on a limb watching over the feeder, then attack those that try to feed. I saw him run one off and the poor bird flew straight into my truck door. It fell to the ground dead literally lawn darting beak-first into the lawn.
  10. The barrel is a 24-inch long 1 in 8 twist from BHW. I forgot what the profile is called, but it is a full 1-inch all the way to the gas block, and then I think it is .920" from there to the muzzle. The scope is the Vortex Diamonback Tactical FFP 6-24×50 with the EBR-2C MOA reticle.
  11. I can already see a left handed Savage bolt-action in my future. I got the bug now!
  12. A private shooting club in Pasgagoula was holding a 600-yard F-Class match today and I thought it was about time for me to try it out. I have never fired a rifle past 300 yards before, but I put together this AR-15 just for this purpose, so... I drove down there, talked to the match director and told him my story. He was very friendly, and after giving me a run-down on how the match works he let me enter the F T/R class. I was a bit intimidated after seeing all the other rifles on the line. High dollar rigs in calibers like 6mm Dasher with 55x Nightforce scopes on them. .22 Noslers and 6.5Creedmores etc. And here I am showing up with an AR in .223 with a $400 Vortex on it. So, I had two goals I wanted to accomplish today. One- get a good 600-yard zero without looking like an idiot, and Two- NOT to crossfire onto another target that was not mine. Now is the time to attempt goal number one. I got set up, opened the ballistic app on my phone and brought up the data I had saved for the 77grain Sierra GMM ammo and the 24" BHW barrel. The app called for 15.4 minutes of elevation and 3.2 minutes of windage. I dialed up 15.5 and the 3.25 right. When the command to fire was given, I held dead center, exhaled and put pressure on the Geissele trigger until it sent my cold-bore shot on it's way. Then I waited for the man in the pits to pull my target. Only he didn't pull my target. Awww crap! I didn't see any dirt kick up under the target, so I thought (with horror) that maybe I sailed the bullet over the target and I would spend the next 1/2 box of ammo chasing my tail and looking like an idiot, trying to put a hole in a 6-foot square cardboard target frame just trying to get a good zero. All sorts of thoughts about failing my first goal were passing through my head and I sheepishly asked to director to check target #8. He radioed to the pits and my target went down. It came back up with the markers indicating a 10 at 3-o'clock. YES! I'm just gonna roll with it- no scope adjustments needed. My first 10 shots were three 10's and seven 9's. At this point I'm thrilled with the BHW barrel and this factory Federal ammo. But, for the second 10 shots of the string, the wind started acting funny and I dropped four shots into the 8-ring. Keep in mind all my dropped points were misses left and right. Vertically, from the first coldbore shot, to the last shot of the day, they stayed within a 1-MOA vertical spread. I just don't know the art of wind-wispering yet. During the last half of my second string, the wind started getting schitzophrenic. It changed directions from one side to the other without me noticing, so I was kind of shocked to see shot #34 land out the other side in the 6-ring. Four shots later, the wind flags were arguing with the mirage. The flags said left, the mirage said right. The mirage was correct, and I was wrong. I held for the wind flags and dropped another 6-bomb to the side the wind started the day blowing towards. ARGGG! All in all, I completely enjoyed myself, learned some things about using mirage to hold for windage, and succeeded in achieving my second goal- NOT crossfiring onto another target! Finished with a 540-4x. The overall winner was that guy with the 6mm Dasher @ 591-ButtloadofX I joined the club, got a key to the 600-yard range and look forward to completing goal #3 in the future. #3- All 60 shots in the 9-ring or better.

    Any Division 2 Players?

    I sometimes play it, as I received it free when I bought a new AMD graphics card. That being said, I obviously play it on the PC. I don't do xbox or ps4 stuff.

    I think "Farm to Market Rd." is the most popular road name in Texas
