  1. D Bar J you-tube channel - lots of videos on making, cleaning, history, etc. Some people think that his hats are too expensive. Cost is relative, but you definitely get quality and great customer service from David. If you don't want to spend as much, check out his crappy cowboy hats. Most people would be hard pressed to find the blemish that David calls out. These hats are significantly less expensive but are still the same high quality, maybe with a blemish (if you can find it). That said, people seem to be paying money to have hats covered in dirt and stains from
  2. Been doing a lot you tube watching on various tents, tent set-ups, campers, etc. Tent camping does not look appealing to me for overnight stays due to the requirements of set-up and take-down/pack-up. Especially for the older demographics who want/need a little more creature comforts. We do miss the ability to walk off the range and get in the camper with the A/C or heat on and relax after shooting. We sold our camper because we just weren't using it and didn't like towing it. It is something that we may revisit but we may just decide to hotel-camp. Pulling valuables
  3. I like what he's done. Great if you have the time and skill. If I use a cargo trailer I'd want to leave the rear open like a toy hauler. I really like the Work N Play trailers but they are heavy and expensive "for what I need/want". At this time of my life, a camper would sit more than it would be used.
  4. You mean like this? A co-worker had one of these and living in the high-humidity area we do, it developed mold pretty quickly.
  5. I think the price is a little on the high side, but if that is the actual wood on the rifle I could probably convince myself that it's worth it - especially in .44 WCF.
  6. I just noticed that thanks to Uncle Sam, I have enough points to stay at a Wyndham property for 7 nights. That will be a big help short term. May have to adjust our schedule this year and start with a shorter vacation. If we can only make HoW that would be better than sitting at home. We could also try to camp at closer locations, so if it doesn't work we're not far from home.
  7. The prequels were the absolute worse! I personally believe Kathleen Kennedy did everything she could to ruin Star Wars and male-bash. Dave Filoni and John Favreau have really got people interested in the franchise again. I hope they're not being over-ambitious with all the new series' that are scheduled to be coming out. With the way Kathleen Kennedy produced the prequels, a lot of things were not right in the universe.
  8. I've been looking into this as well. A lot of bumper pull TTs are being outfitted with residential A/Cs lately. They're just inside the camper instead of outside in a window. A 6x10 or 6x12 would be large enough to put a queen size memory foam mattress on a foundation with plenty of room left for a toilet/bucket and a small table and camp chair or two.
  9. I don't remember who it was, but a vendor couple in Cheyenne a few years ago had one of the real nice canvas wall tents. He had large lagging-type screws with the washers and he used an electric impact wrench to drive them into the ground and remove them. I have been looking at this Gazelle T4 tent. Whether we camp or not, the trip will be in our extended cab F-150 with ARE topper. Plenty of room for a tent with accessories, a cooler/DC-powered fridge, air mattress, camp toilet, blankets, and clothes (as long as I don't try to bring more than two hats).
  10. It's quoting me $40 for shipping and almost $20 for HAZMAT fees. I'll have to pass.
  11. My wife was a SeaBee. She "Can Do!" Yes, we have discussed it. We live on the MS Gulf Coast - it's not unusual to cook outside and live out of an ice chest for a few days to weeks at a time. The only concerns she has is the cold, the heat and the "bed". The only concerns I have are the heat, the "bed" and the bathroom! Part of me would really like to get another smaller TT, but we aren't sure what we're gonna do. We really don't travel that often due to the short summer she gets (she's a teacher) and we won't retire for another 10 years. Can stay in a lot of motels fo
  12. What nipples are you using that they fit like a Rem #10? I'd like to pick some up but don't want to waste money if they won't work well on ROAs with Slix nipples...
  13. A good TO will count the number of rounds fired and can observe the rounds being ejected from the rifle, even from a fast shooter. You don't necessarily have to look in the chamber as it's sitting on the prop. That said, a good TO will look if they think something is amiss. That's not to say the TO will call a shooter back to correct it, though. Sometimes, trying to correct a round on the carrier can cause a more dangerous situation, and penalty, than just letting it go.
  14. I'm really not trying to sound like a smart @$$, but you probably won't get a solid reason. It's been this way for a while and the people involved are not here (on this forum, or even physically still with us) to answer exactly why. If PWB can't answer it satisfactorily, I doubt anyone can.
  15. But didn't you read - that's not a good enough answer!
  16. Wife and I sold our bumper pull TT a few years back because we didn't particularly care for towing it. We are looking at ways to travel this summer (provided I can make it home, we aren't under socialist/communist travel restrictions and we have the disposable income). We'd like to travel back up to Cheyenne for Hell on Wheels again, and maybe even up into MT the following weekend. Or just start back to the Gulf Coast and find a monthly to shoot at along the way (OKC area, maybe). Take US or state highways and see the country. I haven't been tent camping in many years. I figu
  17. There is definitely room to question - but sometimes there isn't anyone around to answer the question. And continuously asking the same question is going to get you the same answer - but no change. It seems to me you want the outcome for both situations to be the same. Continuing to ask the question of "why is it like this" is not going to get it to change. The only way to get the change is to get it before the TGs and submitted for a rule change.
  18. Because that's what was decided in the past and that's the way it is. It may not be an answer you like, agree with or understand - but it is the answer. No one here can tell you exactly why the decision was made years ago. No one here is going to be able to explain it to you so that you accept it. If you want to change it, then the process is to take up with your TG.
  19. MSRP - $180.30 MSRP - $189.39
  20. Well, grip feel is one of the rare times that I prefer Army over Navy. I also prefer Ruger Bisley grips over NMV grips.
