  1. People in Molalla and pretty much every where else in Oregon stay away from Portland unless they have to go there.
  2. Thank you PM. You have great looking dogs. I showed my wife your dogs and she saw Kookee and she commented that she looks similar to our dog Wilbur. That’s pretty funny that she caught kangaroos. Something I never considered a dog doing. Hahaha Here is a shot of our Wilbur. His health was starting to deteriorate at this point. I would definitely consider another Shar Pei. Wonderful dogs. Wilbur was born with no hair. His Mama pushed him away from the litter. He was a runt. We had him for 5 years. He was a great big ball of muscle and love.
  3. Lots of fine people living in Molalla. That is where I called “home” in Oregon for 5 years. It nearly broke my heart when I heard the town was in danger. God bless them for saving that fantastic little community.
  4. I agree. Use mini jaw breakers (Forty Rod’s idea from way back) as ammo. Long Range side match with Atlatl
  5. A very reliable gun but @July Smith & @DeaconKC are correct. Unless you have the action bedded and some material removed from the handguard / barrel interface accuracy can wander. But, once done they can be very accurate.
  6. Wow! That’s a big black bear. She looks so small compared to that bear. Of course camera angle plays a part. Regardless, that’s a big bear! good for her.
  7. Loophole, As you know I have a little experience with canes and physical issues. I completely understand your frustration. I am sorry to hear about your back issues. Just a couple of pieces of advice that I hope will help you. I know they aren’t sexy or cool but consider a cane with feet. They come in various colors so the usual silver isn’t the only option. After dropping or knocking your cane over a few times the canes with feet will look a little more attractive. Bending to pick up a cane is a real PITA. This is called a “Hurry-cane” you can find them on line and they also make a collapsible one for ease of transport. There are other variations like this foot that can be put on a regular cane. https://www.easycomforts.com/buy-super-big-foot-cane-tip-360728?query=Cane foot&referrer=%2Fsearch-page They also have a cane with the above attachment https://www.easycomforts.com/buy-adjustable-folding-cane-with-super-big-foot-363350?query=Cane foot&referrer=%2Fsearch-page Then there is the 4 footed version, found pretty much everywhere. Regarding PT, I wouldn’t give up on it because you cannot go to their facility. I bought myself a yoga mat on Amazon and a stretch strap and did my own PT at home after my back surgery 3 months ago. I still do it every morning. Yoga mat - I found this one to be very good compared to others I have tried. it also has an extra knee pad. BalanceFrom GoYoga+ All-Purpose 1/2-Inch Extra Thick High Density Anti-Tear Exercise Yoga Mat and Knee Pad with Carrying Strap https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07SM25CXH/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_4NmAFbG66FPJY Stretch Strap - this is very helpful in stretching your lower back. It has a pictorial instruction sheet that is helpful and it’s longer than most stretch straps. Very helpful. SANKUU Yoga Strap, Multi-Loop Strap, 12 Loops Yoga Stretch Strap, Nonelastic Stretch Strap for Physical Therapy, Pilates, Dance and Gymnastics with Carry Bag https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07H4LXTZV/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_dQmAFbEJ1QA18 I also bought a DVD on beginning yoga. I cannot do some of the things on here but the Upward and Downward Facing Dog exercises, which were a real b**** to do at first really are wonderful for my back. So is the Child’s Pose. Yoga for Beginners DVD: 8 Yoga Video Routines for Beginners. Includes Gentle Yoga Workouts to Increase Strength & Flexibility https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B000H8RVSO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_WUmAFb5FHDBWN Doing PT at home can be a hassle but if you stick with it it can be very beneficial.
  8. Yes, I have seen photos of that, now that you mention it.
  9. This is not the first time you have presumed to judge me Loophole. Know this. I do not need you telling me how I should think or feel. I am not a pup. I am no relation to you. I am not your student and you are not my mentor. You do not even know me or anything about me in real life. All you know is what you read here and you judge me on that. I seem to have touched a nerve with you. That is not my problem. That is your problem. I highly doubt you will ever be impacted by my actions so take my words as what they are, words. I do apologize if my words have harmed you in any way but I do not take back my words or my opinions. They are mine, just as your words are yours. Continuing this conversation will go no where good, I assure you. I hope you have a good day, Sir. Kind regards
  10. While your suggestion is valid and humorous I do understand what aging does to people. I also understand that people should know their limitations and react accordingly when their limitations become a liability, danger or an incumbrance to others.
  11. Painted Mohawk, is your dog on the left a Shar Pei mixed breed? He / she looks so much my best buddy Wilbur. He passed a couple of years ago. He was a Shar Pei / Bull Terrier mix.
  12. Please tell us how you like it and how it is to shoot. Nice birthday gift and Happy belated Birthday You have some nice plinkers there.
  13. Yesterday was a good day. I am in CoVid quarantine pending surgery Thursday so I couldn’t do a lot. I loaded up a couple of hundred rounds of 9mm. Got to try out my new RCBS Automatic Primer, something I am very happy with. I went for a CoVid isolation motorcycle ride. I made oven baked hot wings and a nice salad for dinner and spent time with my wife watching Black List on Netflix. All in all, a very nice day. I wonder if it was so nice because I didn’t have to interact with other people?...
  14. I have always wondered if old people that drive slow were young people that drove slow. I actually asked an old guy that at Rite Aid last year as he exited his car after I had to follow his slow a** into and through the parking lot. He had the strangest response. He told me to do something with myself that’s physically impossible. I told him to make America safe again and buy a freakin’ bus pass.
  15. The .22 Short Magnum? Sounds made up....kind of reminds me of this cartridge I keep hearing about, but have never seen called the “.45 Long Colt”.
  16. I was going to say this is probably staged, Then I remembered a guy, way back when The Coto Cowboys existed, swagger out onto the porch of the range office and take his revolver out of its holster and tack a piece of paper to a pole with a small nail. It looked like something you’d see on a TV Western. He even turned and smiled as if he was happy someone noticed. He didn’t like my comment that his actions were silly and irresponsible.
  17. A friend of mine emailed me this video. I wanted to share it. Luckily I found it on YouTube. This video put a lot of things into perspective.
  18. I am so sorry Painted Mohawk. Dogs are family. I have no words that will take away the sorrow. I wish I did.
