  1. No - that's what real Cowboys are for after they pull their arm out of the cows a$$.
  2. Has anyone had any dealings with Cherry's Fine Guns in Greensboro, NC? Would that be a good contact for valuation and/or possible sale?
  3. A family member has this pistol. No known provenance. The family is not hurting for money and doesn't need to sell it but are considering do so as it has no known history to the family. Where would be the best place to get a valuation on this pistol and, if they decided to sell, would you recommend consigning though someone or direct sale through advertising on a certain site?
  4. I NEVER buy boots that I can't try on in a store due to the shape of my feet. Double H boots, Justins, Tacovas and others are much more easily found in stores and can be tried on to determine proper fit for your/my feet. YMMV Edit to add - I now only own two pairs of pull-on cowboy boots. Neither pair were tried on before I purchased them because I went to two separate boot makers and my feet measured and the boots made to order. The less expensive pair are actually more comfortable the ones that cost almost double. Does that make the less expensive pair less boots?
  5. I've never worn White's boots so can't comment on them. I've had two pairs of Double H Packers. I wore out the soles on the first pair after 10 years. They are very comfortable and durable, and much less expensive than the White's.
  6. I have purchased through the Leupold and Bushnell VIP programs. They can be very good deals, if you qualify. Vortex has a program as well but it's not direct. You have to register with ExpertVoice, which is open to more than LE/MIL.
  7. My grandmother was adamant that she be put in a coffin in the ground and not cremated. She associated cremation with burning in hell. I want to be cremated. The body is only a vessel and once I'm gone, the vessel is not necessary. As far as what happens with the ashes, I really don't care. I also do not want a funeral or celebration of life in my honor. If people can't visit with me while I'm alive I sure wouldn't want to inconvenience them with my death.
  8. Have any of you that say these are timeshares actually experienced them? Not timeshares, but Coast to Coast and Thousand Trails specifically? I ask because I've received private message saying otherwise.
  9. I appreciate the replies - I think I'll pass. I've used Army CoE campsites before and have the NPS and Recreation.gov apps/websites for when travelling.
  10. You're right, a lot of choices. Are any of them reliable and safe?
  11. I used to be able to do that, but my current version only offers the ability to create a signature.
  12. I occasionally would like to create/edit pdf documents. I know how to save a word document to a pdf, but I would like to make fillable forms for match applications, club membership forms, etc. I would also occasionally like to strip a single page or two out of a large pdf document. Doesn't look like you can get Adobe unless you subscribe to the monthly service, and it's too rich for my blood. Any reasonably priced software recommendations that are safe and reliable?
  13. I received an email from Coast to Coast for a "free" 3-day/2-night stay at one of their resorts of my choice. The "free" stay requires me to attend a 90-minute seminar on the resorts/programs offered to members. While trying to find some reviews on Coast to Coast I found out about Thousand Trails, which seems to be similar. Anyone use either of these?
  14. Well, if you just want a new vehicle... Otherwise, ask yourself how many times you have gotten stuck and is a new vehicle worth that cost? I really like the looks of the Hyundai Santa Cruz and Santa Fe - depending on whether you would want to go truck-ish or SUV. The 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV AWD currently has three recalls.
  15. At which time people will complain that the movie/series differs too much from the book and state how much better the books are.
  16. In order to do that, do you buy two copies of the same book (one print and one digital), or do you read different books at either location?
  17. We appear to have quite a few here that enjoy reading. I have always preferred real books, paperback or hardcover. I have recently purchased a few eBooks from Amazon. I don't like paying for a book and not having something tangible to hold and put on a shelf. I do like the convenience of always having the book with me. Do I need to get with the current times and get over paper books? Do you prefer one medium over the other?
  18. Doing it this way, I have to enter the shooter in a match prior to making a change. However, sometimes when entering the shooter, I will have multiple entries for the same shooter to select from (and no way to know which entry is the correct one until I select them and enter them in a match). What I'd like to do is see a master list of all names and delete the ones that are wrong.
  19. Is there a way to view/edit all shooter entries in PractiScore? I can't seem to figure it out...
  20. This is our forecast on the MS Gulf Coast this week.
  21. I think, in order to really figure this out, you're going to need to take your dog for another walk. Take the thermometer from the house and probe-type thermometer, along with a hygrometer. After your dog does its business, if the pile is steaming, measure the pile with the probe-type thermometer and record that temp as well as the air temp and humidity, and then bring that info back to us. If the pile is not steaming, you will have to repeat the process until satisfactory results can be recorded. We of the Wire look forward to helping you with this dilemma.
  22. Looking to upgrade from an old. worn-out set of calipers to a digital set. Looking specifically at the model 500-196-30CAL calipers. These are offered with or without a calibration certificate. The certificate costs about $25 more than without. Is there a difference in the calipers? Do the calipers need to be certified for what we are doing in regards to reloading? I know that all of our calipers were calibrated annually in the Navy, but that was for dealing with machining parts.
  23. How did that work out for Sonny Bono and Michael Schumacher?
  24. That's a good, comfortable helmet. Had one before I bought the Schuberth. Would have bought another if they had one in the store in my size.
  25. Yep. When the roads get closed, she can stay parked at the Wal-Mart/Sam's Club she's delivering to or the Wal-Mart DC in Cheyenne. Because she's a Crete driver, she also has the option of parking at their terminal in Cheyenne. That why she likes driving out of there - always a safe parking area, not on the road like all the OTR drivers passing through.
