  1. The new Italian navy all has glass bottom boats so they can see the old Italian navy.
  2. We use to refer to the firemen as Weed Hoppers because of the way they waddled through tall grass with all their gear on. They referred to us as Blue Canaries because the Weed Hoppers knew there were no toxic fumes at the crash site if the Blue Canaries were still walking around.
  3. You've got to remember that before Cowboy shooting drove the price up, those 12 gauge 97's were dumped in the $99 barrel at the gun store. You're going to want to find a Cowboy shooter that really wants to shoot 16 gauge.
  4. And if they offer you a free ride on a fancy bus, DO NOT GET ON THE BUS. You'll end up dumped outside the V.P.'s house in Washington D.C. or worse yet, Chicago.
  5. Every few years, we get a really nasty ice storm that takes down the power lines. We've got underground utilities and natural gas at the house, a small portable generator and a camper parked in the yard full of camping gear. I've got a 40 gallon water heater full of fresh water so I don't bother storing water. Usually we only loose power for a few hours when somebody hits one of the power poles with their car. I don't think I've ever even seen a snow blower in Georgia. If it gets much below 20 degrees around here, they shut the schools down and run in circles screaming.
  6. I read all the rules carefully and he didn't say anything about having standards, so I'm in.
  7. I mailed my check yesterday. So far, I'm signed up for Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina and Tenn. Brisket wants to know where all the stamps went. Uhhhh, I dunno.
  8. That's a good looking bunch. You better get to reloading. You're going to be very busy this Spring.
  9. I changed over to wet tumbling several years ago to try and reduce my lead levels. It seems to be working. I use the Frankford Arsenal wet tumbler with Dawn and lemonshine. Brass comes out clean and shiny and my lead levels are still coming down.
  10. I saw one of these in a campground last year. I guess it would be good for camping in bear country. I'd have to be really careful and awake for that midnight trip to the bathroom.
  11. Probably a lost weather balloon from the Ding Dong High School science class in Northern China.
  12. They will probably just turn the chickens loose like they did in Key West. Free range chickens and 6 toed cats everywhere. That place is strange.
  13. You might want to try that Titegroup. I like it better than Clays for pistol cartridges. Burns cleaner at low pressures. I use it for all my pistol caliber reloading.
  14. The memories of all five of you shooting the match will last a lot longer than the pain of the match fees. Enjoy it while it lasts. They grow up so fast.
  15. Next step is a hydraulic pump and a toggle switch.
  16. That's what I use. Works great. I check every shell before it goes in my belt on the stage. It has virtually eliminated sticking shells in my SxS.
  17. That's the way it is in Georgia too. However, I can't see California or New Jersey selling those evil guns back into circulation.
  18. If you own your phone outright, Verizon has a good deal in the prepaid plans. There seem to be a lot less fees and taxes using the prepaid plan for some reason. I still get unlimited phone and text and 5 gigs of data for $25 per phone after you set it up with a credit card auto pay. No contract. The only catch is, they won't finance a phone on the prepaid plan. You can upgrade to more data but I haven't found that I needed it.
  19. I thought that was Gadston Glock's grandaugher until I Googled her. Nope, that's his wife. Gadston is 93 years old and they were married in 2011.
  20. I hear Missouri Lefty has been practicing shooting Outlaw. Maybe he will come play.
  21. It's been my observation that as the criminal justice system breaks down, the level of 'street justice" increases. This street justice refers to the level of violence used by not only law enforcement, but gangs, homeowners and general potential victims of criminal activity. The District Attorney, Judge and politician who remove the penalties of committing crimes are directly responsible for escalating street justice. Of course, the voting population in that area elect the DA, Judge and politician so ultimately, who is responsible?
  22. I built several guncarts before the design evolved into the photo below. This guncart is made of oak so it is very dent resistant. The box width is exactly the size of my butt so I have a place to sit down. The single front leg and the two wheels make a triangle so it always sits squarely on the ground. No rocking. The rifle goes on one side and SxS goes on the other. If I'm shooting Wild Bunch, the pump shotgun will go in the middle. The middle compartment (pump) is made to fit shotgun shell boxes exactly. The plow handles, upright and the box create a triangle, which is very strong and supported. The holsters attached to the plow handles store the pistols between stages. I've been using this gun cart for the past 16 years. I've refinished it twice because the finish gets kind of grungy. Lots of storage beneath the hinged lid. That's where are the ammo and other stuff goes. I've also got a Rugged Gear guncart but this one actually is easier to maneuver over rough terrain. I've also got a place to sit down if I get the chance.
  23. I also suspect that these were torched by a police department somewhere. Maybe cleaning out the evidence room. Lots of agencies don't sell seized, recovered guns back to the public. They get court orders to destroy them after they are no longer needed for court.
