  1. There's a scope made specifically for 10/22's. The elevation turrent has 3 settings for 3 different type of loads.factory. It has settings for 25/50/75 yards etc. It's around $125. BSA 3-9X40 Sweet 22 Rifle Scope with Side Parallax Adjustment and Multi-Grain Turret We shoot silhouette out to 200 yards with this scope.
  2. Handicapped spaces need to be near the entrance, The ones you outlines are not very well placed. When I was designing medical facilities we always went way beyond the ADA required minimum. Especially when geriatric or Ortho patients were involved.
  3. Marketing 101. We've lost customers because of the Fauci flu. What do we do? Curbside pick-up, some restaurants have been doing this way before the plague. It costs the same, it's convenient, it works for most items except perishables, nuts and bolts etc. We've paid a bit to have Walmart deliver groceries if we can't get out for some reason. Baby sitting grand kids, 2 YO's, or health. For me, I'm not somewhat handicapped. So I go online, order, and head out when notified. The businesses seem to be doing much better. Marketing 101.

  4. Dumb comment, maybe, but we use "flat" paint. It covers faster, better, and dries faster. Cost is ?
  5. Sorry, I stepped away from SASS and cowboying.
  6. On YouTube theres a Bounty Hunter, Paddy Mayo, who is a real ass hat. His ego and aggressiveness exceeds his minimal intelligence.
  7. The majority of our power comes from fossil fuels or natural gas. Still putting stuff in the air. No one with any knowledge out there says we can provide 100% of our power from wind turbines or solar panels? We aren't allowed to build nuclear plants or dams so how ar ewe supposed to get off coal, fossil, and gas?
  8. I keep mine bullet down. Never had an issue.
  9. On my Sharps I was key holing the bullets at any yardage. I was shooting a .458. I went to a .459 bullet and got rid of the problem.
  10. The Starline brass is about .015" shorter than the recommended case OAL. Starline has that noted on their web page for 40-65. I cut down 45-70 and cut them down to the correct length! Also 45-70 way easier to find.
  11. I used one in college for my structural engineering calc's. I could do the math but lost the decimal placement more often than not. The library had table mounted electronic calculators you could use for $.25/hour. I went to the library to get my math correct. 1975 a Texas Instrument calculator was $400. Within 3 years you could get a great calculator for $50.
  12. The SIerra's are 200% over average snowfall. Mammoth has had 40" of snow so far. As to water content in the snow who knows. The lakes are filling and the snow really hasn't started a serious melt yet. When I moved to Reno in 97 it was a year of record snow fall and then heavy rains and warmth, after a 5 year drought. That resulted in portions of downtown Reno flooding along with the airport. We're in that same situation right now. Also the lakes filled up.
  13. For Cowboy loads I use whatever drops into the case from the powder drop station. For long range I use weight. The powder drop I have is always off a few grains. It makes a difference.
  14. When I visited the Alamo I learned what actual took place. At least according to the Plaques in various locations. And seeing what was left of the original buildings. The battle didn't last 13 days. For 12 days Santa Ana waited for all of his troops and supplies to arrive. The Alamo was a launch point to take on Houston. The Alamo was just a stop before the actual battles were to take place. The walls in many locations were only 8' high. Meant to hold in livestock. For 12 days there were minor skirmishes. But mostly setting up artillery distances and sighting in. On the 13the day Santa Ana attacked in force. The battle lasted 3 to 5 hours. Hollywood and song writers took some liberties!
  15. Community Property has kept many couples together! Neither one wants to split stuff. California is also a Common Law Marriage State. If a couple lives together and shares everything like a married couple for I think 7 years then its split 50/50 if they separate. Real case. The owner of MAGLITE, Ontario Calif., kicks his 15 or more year girlfriend to the curb. They lieved as husband and wife. And when the split came he thought he owed her nothing. HAH! She got 1/2 of everything including the MAGLITE Company they built together.
  16. Local McDonalds and Burger King within walking distance of a High School. Kids coming at lunch got so bad other customers stopped coming. Cops didn't do anything. So they both close the indoor dining on weekdays 11 to 1. Revenue actually stayed the same as the drive thru got busier. And no messes to cleanup inside.
  17. The Sierra's here are over 200% of average snowfall. The really low lakes are filling up and the snow melt hasn't started yet! Greta is confused...........
  18. I grew up in Southern Calif. We did the drills but they stopped after the Cuban missile crisis went past. I guess they thought the threat was over.l Later as an adult I realized we would have all been killed should the nukes sow up. March AFB, Norton AFB, Edwards AFB Pendleton, Long Beach Naval base, San Diego Naval base, LA harbor, San Diego Harbor, McDonald Douglas, Boeing, Northrup. A target rich location. Funny bite of reality. I was designing projects at March AFB. Strategic Air Command base. Watched the B52's taking off and landing. Then they disappeared. I asked a Captain what happened. He laughed. He said some one with a map finally figured out we were within 40 miles of the coast. Well within Submarine range. They moved them inland somewhere!
  19. 97.6% of all "kid" singers voices change and they end up working at McDonalds.
  20. Knowing TV the brother/nephew will arrive at the last episode for this season.
  21. Well/////it's a fictional TV serious not a Ken Burns documentary.
  22. The Japanese diet is mostly fish, poultry, and steamed vegetables, rice. Beef is extremely expensive.
  23. I digress, as we must on the wire. The urban myth is that Civil War snipers wore sunglasses. I call BS.
  24. I ended up having to be put out.I needed a 2 hour scan of my spine. Can you do that Mr. Eich? NOPE!
  25. I always laugh when, like this article, the Alamo was 'under a 2 week siege'. Making us think they fought for 2 weeks before being overwhelmed. The Plaque at the Alamo says the battle lasted 3 to 5 hours on the last day of Santa Anna's assembling all his troops and supplies. He did this as a launch point to find and attack Sam Houston.
