  1. AN is no joke. On a side note, being that it already happened and there is nothing we can do to change it, I wish we could have today's camera tech back in 1947 to witness the Galveston bay explosion. I've read that one was on the order of 2,200+ tons of AN. ETA: The videos I've seen, do seem to look like a slower detonation velocity like AN is known to have (<8,900fps compared to TNT at around 22,500fps+). Still. It is an awesome force to behold.
  2. +1 to what Redbarron said regarding the Vortex Diamondback as a good start into FFP scopes. That being said, I now wish I had saved up a bit more and got one with a zero stop on the turret. I really like how the new line of Vortex Strike Eagle scopes look.
  3. Its strange. I live outside Mobile. They passed a new mandatory masks in public inside city limits ordinance. $50 fine for not complying. I will not comply because it would make me run afoul of the state law saying no masks while carrying a sidearm. That would make me a felon. So, no mask for me.
  4. I felt like I won the lottery Sunday. I was bingo 9mm ammo, and walked into Academy right as the man was stacking 9mm on the shelf. Total luck! I snatched a 500 round box so fast, the man laughed. I havent seen the common pistol calibers on the shelf in forty forevers.
  5. I love this place! ...and chili has beans in it.
  6. Have a great birthday!
  7. “If a thief is caught breaking in at night and is struck a fatal blow, the defender is not guilty of bloodshed" Exodus 22:2 That is my castle doctrine.
  8. I joined a new private range that is just a 20-minute drive away. This place is awesome! It is 160-acres, out in the woods with multiple ranges separated by berms. My 11-year old's favorite is the pistol range with the steel plates. My fav is the long range area. It is all steel targets from 200-yards out to 1000-yards. It looks like a giant version of Hickok45's range. Anyway, I took my son, a few pistolas and my new Savage 110 out to play. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_IDvfqnvNI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGRiqvXFxD0 Now with 200 rounds through the barrel, I think I can say the Savage likes the 140gr offerings the best. (Hornady 140gr ELD-M, and the 140gr Gold Medal Sierra) 600 yard groups on steel I missed two of the five shots a little high and right on this 1000-yard target We had a fun couple of hours today, and I am thrilled to have such an awesome range so close to home now. Anyway, I'll leave y'all with some gun porn of the new lefthand Savage 110 Tactical. Sorry for the size of the images, but I can't figure out how to shrink them.
  9. I really can only think, you're full of crap!
  10. Yes! That is a peeve of mine also.
  11. I enjoy the r/c helicopters, but haven't flown any of mine in almost a year. Not since lawn darting my Gaui X3 into the ground at about 40mph. I was nearly sick over that one.
  12. Arggg! My OCD (or whatever is) can't take it anymore. It's similar to calling magazines "clips". There are no such thing as poisonous snakes. There ARE venomous and non-venomous snakes, however. I feel better now. Smaller and slightly petty, but better.
  13. I know the Sierra Nevadas along 395 very well. That is some of the most beautiful land ever created. I moved to Hesperia in 1995, but I don't know where the Hurcules plant is. Maybe it was gone by then. I had a Hesperia address, but went to Serrano Highschool in Phelan. Went to work in maintenance at a ski resort in Wrightwood after the army, until I shattered my leg in a work accident there. Almost everyday I watched rich kids in Jeeps drive by as I was pulled over on the side of the road, half way up the mountain to work, to put chains on my Mustangs tires.
  14. Bush. You just took me to nostalgia land and brought back lots of fond memories. I was born in Lone Pine, grew up in Ridgecrest off of Hwy 395, went to high-school while living in Hesperia. I've driven through Adelanto 7 million times (because there is never any reason to stop there. Ever.) My main camping spot was between Whitney Portal and the public campground below on Lone Pine Creek. I've never been above Whitney Portal, but I would like to stand on the summit before I die. Anyone who has done the drive up to, and down from the portal can tell by the abandoned log truck carcasses halfway down the near cliff-like mountain sides, that what you experienced would be a real "holy crap!" moment. Thanks for the childhood trip down memory lane!
  15. My company had me pull a 30ft goose-neck loaded with 800+ feet of aluminum handrails 40 miles up the road to the paint yard. I don't know how much that load may have weighed. But I know I have never pulled a load before that, and my butt cheeks were grabbing that HD 2500's seat cushion so hard that if I opened my mouth. You could have told me the color of my drawers!
