  1. Their reloads in their guns? That’s fine with me. 
    Their reloads in my guns? No flippin’ way!

    Unknown rounds, reloads or not? No way. 

    I have seen way too many squibs and double charges to use someone else’s ammo or unknown (not factory)  ammo in my guns. Even good friend’s ammo. I thank them then decline.

    With all that roast beef did you like me dislike roast beef after the Navy.  In 1970 & 1971 VN it was roast beef for lunch and dinner.  I doubt the official menu was pot roast for 2 meals a day because when I was a member of a Signal Company squad that ran a MARS station and 25th Div's pirate radio station we got steak, chicken, spam and fresh veggies from the S4 Sargent that ran supply at Dau Tang base camp.  The E6 who was in charge of the MARS station had a deal with the S4 Sargent that the MARS station would attempt to put a call to the S4 Sargent's wife once a week.  When the connection was made the S4 Sargent was called.  Everybody else had to wait in the MARS station waiting room.  

    P.S. I couldn't eat roast beef, prime rib or pot roast for 20 years. 

    Yep. Actually it was 18 years for me. 

    Canned roast beef was all sliced and suspended in some kind of solution. The cans were like silver ammo cans. 18” tall and 9”x9” squared at the ends. 
    We had so much because the port side reefer unit went bad soon after I went aboard. There was a fire and a coolant line rupture. Instant phosgene gas.

    Anyway, we only had the starboard side refrigeration unit so food was somewhat limited in variety.

    Nothing is indigenous we're told except for the ones that walked here naked and starving for 60,000 years (and that number keeps increasing).

    Yeah, I have also noticed the morons touting this sh…stuff don’t leave. They’re obviously not indigenous native whateverthehell.

    What about the daily ration of Grog?

    In Medical they had Purser’s Rum. It was for medicinal use only, though no one knew what ailment would get you a shot. 
    It used to be that if your ship was at sea for 120 days straight without a port call each person aboard could receive 2 beers. 
    We all got our 2 beers in the IO during Carter’s folly. The Iranian hostage fiasco. 

    I hear that today that time period is now 45 days. Pansies.  :lol:

  5. I know on my ship we ate a lot of canned goods.  Especially 3 days and afterwards out of port. 

    Breakfast :

    Powdered eggs, canned potatoes - fried, canned roast beef, toast. 


    Cannned roast beef in some fashion, rice, canned veggies. 


    Canned roast beef in some fashion, canned veggies, rice or potatoes in some fashion. 

    At times it seemed pretty tedious. The cooks made do with what they had to work with. Overall they did a good job.

    I would've bet money that picture was edited.  Turns out it is an amateur Canadian stuntman on a dealer loaned HD looking for movie work.


    Yes, people do that, I was referring to that particular image. Riding under a crop sprayer is easily done, similar to riding through a 5' tunnel.  

    I would never attempt something like that. To many bad variables. 
    I sure as wouldn’t do it on a loaner bike.
    That guy is probably a jerk.

  7. From the article:

    ”It is estimated there are more than 400,000 brumbies in Australia and when concentrated in high numbers, their hard hooves pose a risk to the environment and native species.”

    Wouldn’t Brumbies be “native” now too? 236 years now. 
    I would love to have the property to take in a wild horse or two.

    Correct, that is photoshop.

    Is it photoshopped? There are a bunch of videos out there of people doing that.

  9. I always resize new brass. All new brass. 
    I also pick 10 or 12 out of the bunch and measure the length after resizing just to be sure they’re in spec. Occasionally I will find some that need a trim. 
    What’s funny is I had some Starline .45 Colt that I bought new a few years ago. 200 rounds. I recently brought them out to hand load. I measured their length. They were too short. I resized them and they all became 1.270”. Trim length on .45 Colt is 1.280”

    I like to make sure my brass is all the same length that way I don’t get pressure fluctuations with different crimps for different cases. 
    I can worry about crap like that now and address it. I’m retired. :D

    Schoolmarm’s kidney doctor told her to NEVER take another Metformin pill!! 

    My diabetes specialist told me that she wouldn’t prescribe it to anyone, EVER!


    I know a dozen others who have had trouble with the drug and quit taking it in favor of another medication.


    Metformin is inexpensive! That is the only reason I can think of for using it and my health is worth a lot more than a few bucks!


    Disclaimer!!:  To the best of my knowledge, all diabetic medications are hard on the kidneys.  My doctors have me checked REGULARLY for kidney function!!  I go and get checked every three months, RELIGIOUSLY!!


    Pat, I highly recommend that you do the same!!!  That goes for all the rest of you diabetics and pre-diabetics!!

    I don’t know how I missed this. Thank you Blackwater. 
    I intend to drop Metformin.
