  1. I no longer own any guns!! Since the atmosphere surrounding gun ownership has become so toxic, I now own a sizable variety of “CORDLESS HOLE PUNCHERS”!!!

  2. A light long sleeve shirt is cooler than a short sleeve as it blocks the sun but still allows evaporation. Plus, it's the rules. This isn't volley ball, it's Cowboy Action Shooting.

  3. Ya'll do see the irony of a bunch of CAS shooters making comments on somebody dressing up in a costume, right? Pot/Kettle.

  8. I had the pleasure of shooting with Oklahoma Dee at Comancheria Days last week. For those of you that don’t know Dee he is a very accomplished shooter and is a always a favorite for not only catagory but overall at any match he goes to. Last Friday, 1st stage, first gun, he missed his holster. Dropped gun, SDQ. He cleared his guns, brought then to his cart, came back to line ready to resume posse chores. Never a sour look, a pout, or anything but smiles and helpful for the rest of the match, even though he knew he was out of the running for any awards. I hope if I ever have a simila

  9. Last month a lady up Canada way signed into one of the militaria collector sites I belong to and was interested in getting some items for her two boys who were both very much into military history. Seeing as how I’ve been getting rid of my collection, I contacted her and said I’d be glad to send some articles. The package finally arrived today and the boys made a video which se forwarded to me. They had no idea what was in the box and pretty much misidentified everything. I old their mom I’d help them out after they did their research if there was still anything they couldn’t I’

  11. So my daughter is too petite for even the youth stock on her henry. She really wants to shoot like mom and dad. So tonight's project was cutting down the stock. She picked it up and was able to run off 10 no problem. Before I had to cycle the action for her after every shot. Great... but she said ouch as she was poked in the cheek. Hmmm project number two.. grabbed a deer hide I kept from my first deer and made a butt cover. I am no leather crafter but it will work for now. While I was at it I quickly made a small ammo pouch for her.

  12. Here's one my favorite Bar/Saloon scenes. I know it's all Hollywood make-believe, but I still get tickled every time I watch it. And, Second Hand Lions is just a such fun movie.

  13. After 20 years of shooting this game I'd be lying if I said my opinion on this topic hasn't changed over time. I remember the first time I set a pistol target at 7 yards at the club that I started at. I thought that some of the "old guard" were gonna kill me LOL......as in it was too close. But a 125gr bullet doing 800 fps. was ultra "gamey" at that time as well. I know I certainly pushed the "big and close" agenda. Bought bigger steel, 7 yards turned into 5. Everyone started judging the quality of a match by clean shooter percentages. I think there is a sweet spot somewhere in there. Borderto

  14. Prompted bumpy a post on Facebook, I dug out my dad’s I.D bracelet that Grandpa and Grandma gave him when he joined the Army out of high school. It probably was a stretch to pay for it. They had a tiny farm outside of Dearborn, MI. They could have been the models for the famous Grant Wood painting. Dad was hot to join up at 17 but Grandma had bad memories of when her father, as a Regimental Quartermaster Sgt in His Majesty’s forces, went to France with the BEF in 1914. He was one of the few from his unit who returned. So there’s no way she was going sign the papers to let dad enlist. Soon as

  16. I have a couple of guys coming next week to install heavy duty security screens a bars on my den window. Two weeks after that another team is coming to install a security door with double armory dead bolt locks on the inside door to the room. They will put in a monitored alarm before they finish. I have already put expanded steel sheeting in two of the interior walls, the other one is inaccessible and the exterior wall is nearly so. I may add some security there later. I'm looking into a fire suppression system, but haven't found one yet. I

  17. Why not. I am not a fan of the Royal family. I couldn’t care less about the inner workings of the palace or what Meghan and Harry think about anything. But Philip was a combat veteran and from what I can tell a good husband, father and grandfather. I watched it out of respect and appreciation.

  19. I had all those problems and more. No time off for illness or vacation, very long hours with no set schedule, wasn't considered an employee, interrupted my daily life all the time, no compensation for out of pocket expenses, cut into my meal time, had to pay for my own insurance and medical expenses, drove my own car without money for fuel and maintenance, I had to dress professionally and pay my own cleaning bills, there was no retirement plan except what I paid for myself, and the boss was sleeping with my wife. After eleven years of this abuse I took and early retirement.

  29. Went to the library a while ago and found they were having a sale. Anything with a purple spot was going for two bits. I bought a very nearly perfect Roget's Thesaurus to replace one I've had for almost 60 years and practically worn out For those of you who don't know what a Thesaurus is, I'll explain: It is a very large prehistoric reptilian monster, thought to be extinct, and noted for its huge vocabulary.

  30. My mom’s theory goes like this... When you’re ten years old, one year takes up 10% of your life. To that ten year old kid, 365 days is a big chunk of time and seems huge. When you hit fifty, that same 365 days is now only 2% of your life. That’s what makes it feel like time is flying by faster.

  32. God was walking with Adam in the garden. Adam: Lord, I'd like to have a companion to live with me. God: I could give you a woman. What would you want her to be like? Adam: Lord, I want her to be warm, soft, helpful, understanding, kind, considerate of my needs, loving, soft spoken, and submissive. God: You know a woman like that would cost you an arm and a leg? Adam: Okay, Lord. What could I get for a rib?

  33. If you have a lightweight long sleeve shirt how much more cooling would there be if it were short sleeved? IMHO not all that much. And I also agree with @Attica Jack #23953
