  1. Field and stream has an article on dying obsolete pistol ammo.  Among them us the 32acp and the 40 s&w .

     

    Beretta still makes a 32acp pistol.  Glock and Smith both make numerous 40 pistols.  I'm not sure I buy the idea they are dying.  

     

    25acp was also mentioned and it is a pointless round.

  2. When my second child was a baby in 2006 my wife drove to the cmp south store in Alabama in a torrential thunder storm with my 2 oldest and picked out a correct h and r for my Christmas present.   I read the other day that the last batch the south store had of the correct grade went for twice what she paid.  

     

    I plan on giving it to one of the children who rode with her to get it someday.

  3. What is sad though is that when I first started buying guns in the mid 80s a 1903a4 was 799 .  I couldn't afford it even on a sergeant pay.  That same gun goes for.a few thousand now.  

     

    I find it hard to justify paying 6000 for a 1941 Johnson that not long ago I could have gotten for a lot less.

    Nope, the data show that I am immune even to newer and more contagious variants.  I don't know where you got some other idea, but whoever told you that is a liar.  Such an argument might seem inviting as its structure is sound, but it's factually untrue.

     

     

    The data are published from all over the world, from all sorts of sources, and from hundreds of millions of doses given.  You'd be hard pressed to find anything more "proven" than that.

     

    You should be ashamed of yourself that you won't take a little needle prick for your fellow people.

     

    Actually that's been the greatest thing about the pandemic--learning who actually cares about their fellow people and who doesn't.

     

    The mask mandates, lockdowns, and all that other nonsense should have never happened, but those are not arguments against vaccination.  Those were attempts to bandaid the problem.  The vaccines are the solution.

    Less than 8% of my entire state has gotten the virus over the last 15 months.  Less than 1% died from it.  Why do I need to get a vaccine to protect others when 92% of others are not getting sick ?  Evidently it is not as contagious as advertised. 

     

    My son got it and no one else did, perhaps most of my family is already immune, so why do I need a vaccine?

  5. I got to look thru a pulsar xp50 thermal scope today and it was so clear .  It was 5k though.  The girl that worked there said the atn is just as good but half the price.  

     

    Anyone have experience with them?  The state gave me permission to hunt since deer are eating my corn crop and soybeans and I can hunt at night.

    Pipeline?  Carries gasoline?  Or oil to a 

    The pipeline that provides gas, diesel, natural gas and jet fuel from Texas to New Jersey was hacked by ransomware so it was shut down Friday night and SOME of it may be back on line later this week.   The major airport at Hartsfield Atlanta gets their jet fuel from that pipeline.  Airlines are flying in fuel from other places or flying smaller planes to Texas, having the passengers get on bigger jets there to go to Hawaii or beyond.  

     

    Enough supply was on hand to last until Wednesday but is gone now.  

     

     

  7. Due to the pipeline that carries 50% of the fuel for our part of the  country being shut down, I told my daughter to top off her tank.  I told her to do so after school on her way to work.  She goes to high-school and works at zaxby and shoneys.   When no one would work during the virus , they hired her , though she was 16 at the time.  Now she is almost 18.  

     

    She drives a chevy sonic hatchback that is great on mileage.  

     

    She replied she had recently filled it up and didn't want to take the time.  The next day on Tuesday she tried to get gas.  She called me concerned because she had passed 3 stations and they were out of gas.  I told her not to drive all over town wasting gas, to come home and next time I warn her, HEED MY WARNING.   I told her these things happen fast and it perpetuates itself as people panic.  

     

    Thankfully another station had some on her way home.  Later we got word no one in town has gas.

  8. Georgia lists the total test each day so out of 9053 test 370 were positive.   Keep in my that most people don't get tested if they are not sick.  

     

    My mom went to the dr with a UTI last week but the nurse said she had the symptoms of the virus so she got tested and came back negative for the china virus but positive for the UTI

  9. Georgia reported just 370 new cases of the virus today.  Over the last 15 months only 8% of the state tested positive for the virus.   Less than 1% died from it.  We have been mostly open for a while and even held the annual onion festival at the end of April without a spike in cases.  

     

    Only a few wear mask in South Georgia where we live.

    This is laughable.  Slaver in America lasted approximately 350 years.  He's right about Islamic slavery, but this constant attempt by all sides of political issues to change historical facts to make people feel better about themselves is complete garbage.  Facts are facts, and they do not care about anyone's feelings.

    Since we as a nation did not declare our independence until 1776 and not have a constitution until 1789 , and before then Britain and France ruled parts of our current territory,  that make 85 years more accurate.   Also see the Gettysburg address.

  11. Tried regular boot socks but diabetic socks are more comfortable but I sometimes wear them anyway.   I think my main problem is my feet swell up so much I had to go to the next size up shoe.  Oddly I don't have that problem with snake boots as long as I tie off at the second hole instead of the top hole.  

  12. I live on a red clay with sand mixed dirt road.  The county scrapes it once in a blue moon, often right before it rains.   They do not put a crown in the middle but often put a mound along the edges by the ditch.  This means it is filled with potholes. 

     

    My neighbor and I sometimes use our box blade and tractor to smooth it out,  but it is so hard it sometimes wears or breaks the box blade and has minimal affect on the potholes. 

     

    If I took a 7ft tiller , how deep should I set it to make a difference or would it cause more damage than good?

  13. I tried dr comfort diabetic socks and they are comfortable and better than normal socks, BUT darn it the heel and bottom wear thin and get holes.  

     

    I need a good sturdy diabetic sock that can hold up to snake boots and mud boots since they are the most comfortable shoe I own.   I can wear them all Day while my dr comfort mini boots hurt after a couple of hours.  

  14. I used to exclusively use bore butter to season muskets and cap and ball guns.   Then the forum showed me ballistol.   

     

    Ballistol is hard to get where I live and hard to find on line sometimes.   

     

    What else is good for cleaning and seasoning black powder guns?  

  15. We lost some restaurants but most survived.   The local ones that remain have cut their hours due to food and staff shortages.   

     

    Before I knew a virus was coming a guy agreed to sell me cows when they were ready.  By that time the virus was in its early stages but he opted to sell me a butchered cow.  I was glad I bought it.  

     

    This winter I bought another one,  also really glad I did.
