  1. Nope. I reregistered as an Independent after 59 years as a registered Republican.
  2. I lived in San Antonio for 2 years and there were 4 seasons! Summer was the longest, but we still had all 4.
  3. I am going to be more impressed with some elk backstrap on my dinner plate!
  4. Me too. Here is my 30-06 with it's tiger tail maple stock. I made the stock over 60 years ago. Still hunt with it too.
  5. I have always wanted a Ruger #1. Too Tall Bob had one in .300 Wby listed and I pulled the trigger and bought it, new in original box. I mounted a Leupold 4 x 14 VXIII on it and finally got to the range today. I boresighted it before I left. Pretty windy today too. I only shot 10 rounds. Started a 25 yards to verify zero. Then to 100 yards. Target is the last 4 I shot. First one is a sighter, then adjusted and the 3 shot group was what I finished up with. Used my own handloads for another .300 Wby I have and they seem to shoot great in this rifle too. I will get back to the range for some 200 & 300 yard works after the current storm passes and the wind dies down. I plan on hunting elk with it in late November.
  6. Just remember, the Governor doesn't write the laws, just signs what the Legislature sends to him.
  7. Hung him same as they did. Stupid is as stupid does. He hung out with the wrong people.
  8. When I can get it.....I use their Match .22 ammo for my Bulls Eye Pistol shooting.
  9. Got an antelope near Alamosa, Co last weekend. Hunt deer and elk in late November about 70 mile north of my homeplace. Had some antelope backstrap last night......really great!
  10. Nice wood. I just bought a #1B in .300 Weatherby Mag. I t also has nice wood. Good price too....someone will be getting a great rifle at a great price.
  11. I've done 30 or 40 stocks with linseed oil. I like to dilute the first few coats with thinner so it penetrates easier. I also like a satin finish instead of the "shine". I use powdered pumice and light mineral oil rubbed to give the stock a satin, less glossy finish.
  12. Those birds were probably either Blackbirds or Starlings.
  13. Today in aerospace design, things are somewhat better. With the new computer design and build programs, we can simulate how the parts/assemblies will be built. Problems with accessibility, installation and design can be found and fixed before it becomes a problem for fabrication and assembly. I was in charge of a group of Production Engineering specialists who's only job was to make it easier for aircraft to be built and maintained by mechanics and customers. We didn't find all the problems, but when one showed up during the manufacturing process, we worked with design engineering to fix it. I sent engineers anywhere in the world that our products were used and a problem showed up that needed our expertise to fix.
