The deck is done and just doing some final cleanup. The bottom of the deck is enclosed now, I took this picture before they put the cedar pickets around the perimeter. It seems like every trip to the Ace we have here is a hundred dollar bill now, ant killer, umbrellas and benches then I was informed I needed a timer. Just got through wiring that into the GFCI. The fence guy showed up looking hungry and I already know what that's going to cost. My wife went to a pool supply place about an hour from here and they relieved her of about four hundred bucks for chemicals and now I'm a chemist whether I like it or not. We have a little bulldozer looking vacuum that runs around inside the pool sucking up all the saw dust these guys left us. That alone entertains me for about an hour so it's all good. Feels good to float around weightless every evening for an hour or so. That reminds me, need an outdoor radio. Back to Ace.
104 yesterday at the 22BPCR match. We shoot under tall live oak trees so it was almost bearable on the line but going downrange to reset the targets was tough. Decided that I didn't need to go to the Lever Action matches today because it was 85 degrees an hour before sunrise and a clear day forecast with southwest winds. Only 103 right now but the heat of the day is still coming. Fencing crew is going to work around midnight and knocking off at 9 am. At this rate I should have a brand new fence just in time for a range fire.
It is becoming more difficult to do this. The current GM Duramax engine cannot be tuned. GM has wrote the code in such away to pevent the aftermarket from being able to get into it. I'm primarily a GM guy and do not know now the current status of the current Ford or Ram trucks.
Gas engines can be tuned in a similar way to improve performance as well. I'm not sure of the current state of any of the gas engines and the ability to time them.
You could always call them and let them know what you're running. I don't want you to just go out and get them and find out they are too soft for your application, as mine is slightly different and I haven't ran anything of theirs but their bilstein 5100 shocks as of right now.
@tackyp said in I’m rethinking Appendix carry:
I’m a pretty lean guy so I can’t hide a gun at my 4oclock. So I appendix carry. Maybe not anymore
See I'm the oppisite. I'm not lean and can't appendix carry, so I carry at the 4:00-4:30
What is this click bait thread title? I opened it thinking the MN guvmint was coming after @orkan ‘s competition primer seater! 😃
I wouldn’t put it past them to have hopes of equally stupid gun related bans.
@martino1 said in POSSIBLE SECOND ADVANCED CLASS IN 2018:
I think Greg was entertaining a 5 person class if I understood correctly.
We need a minimum of 5 seats sold. However, we often have people that will want to train 1-on-1 and will simply buy the other 4 seats and have my entire staff all to themselves for a couple days. So if 1, 2, or 3 people want to come train... thats fine and we do it all the time. Most folks just don't like working around someone else's schedule.
Our country used to not only teach our children "reading, writing, rithmatic", but morals as well. Children learned right and wrong in school and they learned the Bible in school. The problem with that today is that there are so many teachers who would not teach morals or religion correctly thereby leading many kids astray...as you pointed out.
Thing is...it is the parents responsibility to train their children. Public school is a good tool for teaching and training children, but it never will be a "fix all" for raising children. Parents must still put time and effort into making sure that the children are being taught properly...and will still need to do some teaching and a lot of training at home. A lack of teaching/training going on in our country is a big problem. We have plenty of "educated" children that have not been trained "aka-- snowflakes".
They want to lease the land to our Gov't for the military bases!!!! Well OK no problem..... Then we can cut the electrical grid going to their "NEWLY found freedom country" and cut the water supply and No longer send our brave firefighters and National Guard to fight their wild fires, We no longer have to send any Federal money there to help with any of their Natural disasters. The gasoline produced in Texas can be charged at a higher rate now. The Natural Gas being piped in can be charged at a higher rate. No more public assistance for the poor and useless people, no more Medical, no more SSI? the Food can be charged a rate higher then what the rest pays? Sounds like a dream come true. No more Federal money for your roads, bridges etc. WOW...! it just keeps looking better and better the more I think about it.
I think this is a major WIN for the rest of us. FUCKING do it and see what happens California I fucking DARE you, Please do it.
You don't like your middle class working men and women Please send them over, you can have and keep as many of the useless non working class your "NEW" country can store.
As for an easier path to citizenship? What citizenship? Not the U.S.A citizenship. Did he forget they are no longer part of the U.S.A.. They really are a bunch of stupid people.
@flyinphill said in Just a little blizzard:
@donnie I have seen a show on the Chinook winds. I don't remember the exact details, but somewhere in North or South Dakota there was a change of about 50F in 2 minutes.
Spearfish holds the world record for the fastest recorded temperature change. On January 22, 1943 at about 7:30 a.m. MST, the temperature in Spearfish was −4°F (−20°C). The Chinook wind picked up speed rapidly, and two minutes later (7:32 a.m.) the temperature was +45 °F (+7 °C) above zero. The 49 °F or 27 °C rise in two minutes set a world record that still holds. By 9:00 a.m., the temperature had risen to 54 °F (12 °C). Suddenly, the chinook died down and the temperature tumbled back to −4 °F or −20 °C. The 58 °F or 32.2 °C drop took only 27 minutes. The sudden change in temperatures caused glass windows to crack and windshields to instantly frost over
Sometimes in the spring the wind can feel like someone's turning on the hot and then cold water when you're in the shower. Spring can be quite angry around here.
I have Kuiu Tiburon pants for shooting in the summer that I like A LOT. Side vents and dot-air fabric make them cooler than wearing shorts. Might be a little light weight for what you're looking for though.
I will be getting more of the Kuiu Attack pants https://www.kuiu.com/hunting-pants-shorts/attack-pant/40001.html?dwvar_40001_color=Gunmetal&cgid=pants-and-shorts#start=2
They fall in between the Tiburon's and blue jeans weight wise, and they also have the side vents to cool the undercarriage off quickly when need be. I really like the way the Kuiu pants fit me. They wear like my favorite blue jeans.
I have some Kuhl Radikls that I like when it's real warm too. Nice stretchy areas above the seat and in the crotch.
I also have Kuhl Rydr's that I wear in the shop but they're more of a heavy jean weight canvas pant. Worst part about the Kuhl's is even their relaxed fit pants run a pretty tailored fit that can be tight on my thighs and butt.
I've been looking at the Prana Zion stretch https://www.prana.com/stretch-zion-pant.html - they look very similar to the Kuiu Attacks
and the FirstLite Corrugate https://www.firstlite.com/corrugate-guide-pant.html -- $$$ is the main downfall on these
According to the ‘official’ police report, Holland was “found unconscious and unresponsive” in his cell and prior to dying and he was “under the continual care of a physician” at the time. However, according to the video obtained by the Tribune, Holland was not unconscious at all. He was seen writhing in agony only moments before he lost consciousness and died. What’s more, no physician was constantly present during his 47 hours of torture. Had they been present, Holland may still be alive.
They strapped this guy in a chair and left him there in his own piss and shit for two days. A blood clot formed, from not being able to move... and he died. These fucking cops tortured and murdered this guy, and are seen on video laughing about it. Zero punishment.
I am partial to Cambridge Bibles. They make great quality stuff...just make sure it is bound in French Morocco (preferred) or at least calfskin. Bonded, Pitt minion, and most others are junk in comparison.
I also really like Nelson signature series bibles too, but they are out of print and fetch crazy prices. They were about $125 new, but now bring $400-$500! I still have one, but use it sparingly.
You can expect to spend somewhere in
The neighborhood of $100 depending on exactly what you get. I like slimline bibles as they are lighter...but also smaller print.
I recommend finding one you like and sticking with it when you get a new one. That way the verses are in the same places on the page. You wouldn’t think it would matter, but you get used to it and a new Bible will be different if it is not the exact same model.
If you want to find one cheap, then decide what you want and then watch for one on eBay that has someone’s name on it. I have picked up several very nice bibles very cheap that way. No one wants a Bible with someone else’s name on it, but I could care less.
This is what my wife uses mostly. https://www.rustoleum.com/product-catalog/consumer-brands/krud-kutter/cleaners-and-stain-removers/original-krud-kutter
Its one of the products that I sell. Stuff cuts heavy grease with ease. Hell it will soften dried paint if you let it soak long enough.
Religion in general can get dicey. Religion in general however is not about truth, but rather preceived truth. Christ after all was crucified in the name of religion (Jewish). Truth is not easy to find in the religious world...or any area of discussion...yet that does not change the fact that truth can be known....and that It is generally hated.
I seen that video before and couldn't think how anyone could debate that. We really need more people to throw more of those type arguments down I feel pretty confident that there would be far less debating and bickering if there was.
Yeah well its 73 degrees and partly sunny in South Fla. We're supposed to get to the upper 40s as a low at night later this week if that makes any of you feel better.
While I cant walk out my back door and shoot, I guess being warmer most of the year is some consolation.
I'd rather it be -100 year round than live there, or any place like it.
That is why they don't throw a fit when people are falsely accused and arrested.
It's mob rule at its finest. If you aren't friends with the right people or have the right last name, you're on your own. After that it just comes down to money. If you have enough money you can buy your freedom back.
Funny, my company has ventured into roof coatings this last year and I've been some training. Everything we've been taught is never leave anything black on a roof exposed. Not because we sell white, but because black stuff has asphalt in it. Asphalt, breaks down over time, and your membrane fails. So we coat it white, but then it causes other issues.
Looks like your connection to Gunhive was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
