  2. I hopped ona Huey that was leaving our firebase in Cambodia. It was a cool rainy day. As I sat there wet and miserable a few guys headed to R&R climbed in. Then a scout dog handler and his pooch. Then they loaded a pile of captured weapons and the outgoing mail. Then a couple of Kit Carson scouts. Eventually we were chock full and the pilot pulled pitch. We lifted up about 8 feet or so. I was sitting jammed behind the pilot as he and the copilot were looking at the gauges. A couple of them seemed to be in the red zone. The drivers looked at each other and shrugged. The nose dipped and we started moving forward. The tree line was about 3-400 meters away. We raced toward it. I waited for us to get some height. We didn’t. Just kept speeding faster toward those bigass trees. I tried to remember the Hail Mary thing but being a pagan I had to improvise. I decided that if we were going to hit the trees I would shoot the pilot at the last second. Then, miraculously, we suddenly started to pull up. We cleared the triple canopy by 10 or 15 feet. The copilot looked back at me and winked! I considered shooting him.

  3. Our AZ couch guest has arrived. Supper done and clean up all done. Rested most of the day, glanced at the stages...hugged good friends, waiting on more to come. I love being 'home'!

  4. Again: - Many of us cannot/ will not leave family or careers not to abandoned. - Some of us are of ages that make it kind of difficult to just pull stakes. - California transplants are no longer welcome in some states simply because of where we're from. And... - It's not that we don't resist. We do. But we're outnumbered by more than two to one. In the populated regions (Bay Area and SoCal) the ratio is as much as 85.3% to 12.7%, with a few "independents." And keep in mind that the present condition was largely brought about by transplants to California from other states. Hell, Gavin's Aunt Nancy is from Baltimore! In the year 2000 it was reported that only one out of 11 adults in the state was a native. At this time, we have almost 40 million people - over 10 million are from other countries. Face it - We have been occupied.

  7. My goodness ... do you even shoot?? If you are already handing out SDQs w/ Snakebite then why are you bothering people here???!? If you were already doing it w/ "posses as small as six" ... then you guys got it covered!! For everyone else ... that would leave the TO ... three spotters ... and the shooter ... (that's 5) ... and only one person at the loading table (that's 6!!). No one to pick brass ... no one at the ULT etc ... Wow ... who was watching "each other" at the LT with only one person there???? .. Did the TO or shooter give a glance when they had a chance?? If you can't load you guns w/o assistance .. AND/OR ... can't ask someone next to you to help ... Then getting pumped up about an LTO and how to penalize people is not really the problem.

  9. The movie is out in theaters and is on HBOMax. I watched it last night and since no one has mentioned it I will at the risk of great bodily harm tell you what I thought. A few minutes after the movie began I did not feel happy or glad to see Clint I felt sad. No amount of Hollywood makeup can hide the fact that Clint is 91 years old. He looks like a 91 year old man. He sounds like a 91 year old man. And, he moves like a 91 year old man. If any of you can stand to watch have you noticed Biden after giving a White House speech refuse to take questions and turn and shuffle off the stage while decidedly hunched over? That is how Clint looked. Obviously there is no action. He pretends to throw a punch at one point but his hand is moving so slow it would have bounced off. In another scene he is supposed to be breaking a horse but, since all he can do is shuffle, it is blantantly obvious there is a stunt man. I have noticed a few reviews and it was unanimous that the best actor in the movie is Macho the chicken. I reluctantly have to agree. Is it worth watching? If for no other reason than to see one of the best actors and directors in his twilight, yes.

  11. We went out for breakfast the first time in well over two years. A place we've been meaning to go back to for five years or so. VERY good food at reasonable prices. But it gets crowded by 0730 and stays that way. But it opens at 0600. We were there at 0610. Anyway, had an enjoyable meal, waiting for the bill, wife asked, was told that the guy at the table next to us, who had left about 15 minutes before, had picked up our tab. Apparently he is a regular who does it from time to time. A very pleasant surprise.

  14. I’m a HUGE supporter of a LTO…EOT Posse 14 had a LTO because I didn’t want anyone to get a DQ because of nerves/silly mistake. It happened on at least one other posse. I worked the LT, too. While at LT, I helped two shooters when they had issues loading firearms and needed to unload them - they were seasoned shooters but did NOT know how or were uncomfortable removing cylinder to unload pistol bc of high primer and a rifle that didn’t load smoothly - unloaded and reloaded. Just those two incidents COULD have been bad…or distractions to the other shooters at the LT… Redundancy is important…even for us. Big hugs! Scarlett

  16. I got my Pietta 1851 Navys back from Goons Gunworks and I have to say I'm impressed. Mike took the hammer draw from about 8 lbs down to about 4 lbs. He put in cap posts, corrected the arbors, put in a coil spring action, action stop, action shield, corrected the timing and hardened and fire blued the screws. I'm about ready to do some cap and ball shooting.

  17. If the laser jumps around when you dry fire, it's because you are jerking your hand. Lasers are a great training tool. Pointed at the wall, pull the trigger on the empty gun, and try to not have the damn dot move.

  18. I have made the 1/11 being born in the sate for years. I even got in a p------ contest wit a Texan who continually bashed the state and told him outright that if the other 49 states kept their trash at home the state wouldn't have the problems imported from elsewhere. He was even willing to come out and kick my butt....a hollow threat because he didn't have the guts and I have reason to doubt he had the ability. Nonetheless, I'm now seeing that same thing happening to Arizona, and it saddens and frightens me.

  19. Capt. BB, you gotta be careful if Iron Cowboy is taking lessons from Widder. I hear ole Widder gives a complimentary jar of his special shotgun lube to every student in the class. It'll be smooth if he likes ya and crunchy if he's scared of ya! Kajun

  21. I was practicing the other day and poked a hole in the ducky. I now have an inflatable giraffe. By the way, I wasn't practicing shooting. One of my neighbors bet me 20 bucks he could eat a nanner split quicker than me. Apparently he didn't know who I is. I told him to give me 2 to one odds I could whoop him with me using a fork and him using a spoon. Well I was practicing my fork split eating technique in the pool on the ducky and I got a bit excited. I still whooped up on the neighbor though. Sometimes you have to have pity for the little people of the world...but not every time.

  22. I thought he was good in the Mule, a movie I liked. The whole point of that movie was precisely his age. The new movie got good reviews yesterday in both the NYTimes (generally no friend of Clint or his movies), and the Wall Street Journal. I'll be happy to watch it. I read that he plays a 90-year-old man, so it makes sense to be one. He's not trying to be a younger character. And he still himself directs all of his movies.

  27. TN just told me that he's planning on a "No Mercy" match at the State. Said he didn't care how pretty a feller's car or truck is, he plans to "humble a few folks". Sounds like he's bringing the whoopin! ..........Widder

  28. When my guns, clothes, & skin dry out I'm gonna ask for a refund of my Medicine Man School tuition! & Who knew I would need a sump pump in the bed of my truck just to get home without my gun cart floating away? If Arizona has dry heat why can't Tennessee have dry rain?

  29. The stock needs to be relieved and fitted to the Stoeger frame and tangs. The crack needs filled with epoxy and the whole shebang bedded with Acraglass. The wood above the crack is going to splinter off.
