  1. Yesterday I went to a Golden Corral buffet. Decent food, really clean and had a nice meal. Was on my way to get dessert and saw 4 bikers come in. These were actual 1%ers, wearing colors on their vests. They aren't bothering anyone, but some STUPID kid, looked about 17 mouths off to one of the bikers with "Get your stupid, slow F$%^$ A&% out of the way". I can see in the biker's eyes this kid is about to get gut stomped right there. Why I decided to speak up I don't know but I look at this kid and tel him "Kid, you are messing with a real biker. Before you get gut stomped and go to the hospital, you better apologize and get out of his way. He is not gonna be disrespected by a twerp like you." I guess some instinct for survival finally kicked in and the kid did apologize and ran for his mommy. The biker's girl looked at me and asked how I knew that. Told her worked Corrections for 26 years, all high risk or max prisons. I guess I just didn't want to see the biker go to jail for dishing out what the punk had coming...

  2. Do you have the opportunity to meet personally with the chief and discuss the problems you've been plagued with this year? He may have just looked at a spread sheet total without knowing what's really going on. I hope you get this issue resolved.

  3. First time I ever saw the lady who became my wife. I asked her to marry me and seven months later she did. My friends said it wouldn't last. It did for 51 yers. If that isn't magic, I don't what is.

  4. I get it that shooters are some of the nicest people around and they’re eager to help new folks. But just because you’re more experienced than someone else doesn’t mean that your wisdom is appreciated. My brother in-law and I went to a charity shotgun event today. 25 targets each of skeet, doubles skeet, trap, and wobble trap. It’s meant to raise funds and be a chance to try different shotgun games. My brother in-law is an experienced trap and sporting clays shooter, but never shot skeet. His first station on skeet he missed a target and immediately had three people offering advice about why he missed and what he should do different. He got so frustrated he started walking off the field, which only led to a louder chorus of “advice” until I cut everybody off and brought him back to the station. Please, know when to shut up. And I know it was a fun shoot, but it made me smile when he was the top shooter on both trap stages.

  6. Today we were holding a garage sale for my 97-year-old mom. An elderly fellow wearing a Korean War Vet cap dropped by and visited for a bit. He was very lively and sharp. He was also 91 years old. His name is Robert McAnear. He handed me a card from a stack in his pocket, and asked me to share it if I liked. It was a poem he wrote: A NAME ON THE WALL I did not know you... You are from far away. ...from a small town I never knew. I did not see you when you fell. ...I did not hear your last breath, nor feel your last pulse. ...I only know you died. ...for the same cause that my friends died. The difference is that I heard their cries, and heard the sounds that brought this pain. ...Their blood mixed with mine, and I felt their hands...holding on to me. ...and I could not help them. I could tell their loved ones how they died, ...but I can never know their pain. ...or understand what they tried to say. I can only remember what I saw... in their eyes, in the half light, and I know they died for all of us...but...not alone. I cannot tell you what they said - that was only for those they leave behind, heart to heart, soul to soul, ..not to be shared with others. These were private thoughts - not for strangers - I do not know you, but my friend died, ...holding my hand, and, I honor you both the same. You both died for all of us, ...and you will be remembered. by Robert McAnear

  8. Wherever I drink a root beer a picture appears in my mind. It's my view as a kid from the back passenger seat looking over my dads shoulder in the driver's seat. The car hop is putting the tray hooked onto the window with those frosty glass mugs of root beer. No ice, but ice cold in those mugs.

  10. Yes, the vendor COULD be traveling however, as a vendor who travels - I do have a smart phone with me - I ALWAYS check emails and send an “I’m in ABC at the state shoot and will be home on XYZ day and will be in touch”. Then, every month or so I will go through my emails and check if there are emails or messages that I have missed. There were one or two that fell through the cracks over the summer between EOT and fall shooting… I contacted those I missed and apologized. I expect a lot of myself and keeping up with my customers is important. I don’t think I have EVER missed THREE emails from the SAME customer! You deserve better. Hugs! Scarlett

  11. There is SO MUCH wrong with that picture. First, there's only one egg. Then it's up, not over. Whole wheat toast? Cream in the coffee? Come on now people. As has been mentioned, the gun's lying on the wrong side. And while hash browns are desirous, grits are a necessity.

  17. It was fantastic ... again, Not sure how they keep getting better each year but they seem to do it year after year. Thanks to the whole crew, it takes a team effort to make a match run like this one did.

  18. A few years ago someone found an empty .223 shell on the elementary school grounds my kids went to. I was talking to the janitor about it while waiting for school to get out. Apparently everyone was in a bother about it. When my kids came out the Principal was right there, so I asked her about it, just to mess with her. She was all upset about it, and then she remembered I was a shooter. So, she looked at my son(1st grade) and then looked at me and asked if I knew anything about it. I answered " it couldn't have been my son, he never carries anything smaller than a 44 " and walked away, enjoying the funny look she got on her face.

  20. Something else that is very different between our two english speaking countries is the spelling... eg... Aus Theatre...USA Theater Calibre Caliber Honour Honor There are so many of them , that's just 3 examples...why is it so ? For what it's worth I actually think your way makes more sense. I know Marshall Mo Hare will know..he is up with these sorts of things...

Poking fun at virtue-signaling before virtue-signaling was the Law of the Land. The controversial remark occurred during a 1973 Academy Awards ceremony

  24. Just had some. Crispy, chewy, not greasy, a little bit spicy. If you took the crispy outside from a fried patty of Johnsonville sausage that's what these are when cooked. It goes on our "Will Buy Again" list. Hmmm.... sausage wrapped meatloaf.....hmmmmm

  39. Howdy Dippers, I've never used Lee Dippers; however, for those of us who need the reminder: CC's and CI's are a measure of volume. On the other hand, grains are a measure of weight. Therefore, a powder dipper can't be labeled in grains as that will be different for each powder used as the density and weight of powders is different from one formulation/brand to the next. Unless I've missed something. Identifying as Capt. Obvious, Rev. Chase

  40. A burglar broke into a house one night. He shined his flashlight around, looking for valuables. And when he picked up a jewelry box to place in his sack, a strange, disembodied voice echoed from the dark saying: "Jesus is watching you.” He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight off, and froze. When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his head, then clicked the light on and began searching for more valuables. After just a few seconds, clear as a bell, he heard: "Jesus is watching you.” Freaked out, he shined his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot. "Did you say that?" He hissed at the parrot. "Yep," the parrot confessed, then squawked, "I'm just trying to warn you.” The burglar relaxed. "Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?” "Moses," replied the bird. "Moses?" The burglar laughed. "What kind of people would name a bird Moses?” Suddenly, he felt a giant shadow materializing behind him. "The kind of people who would name a Rottweiler Jesus."
