    This is what I am seeing.

    As a CDL instructor/tester I am outside with students everyday. Our temps in the area for the past 3 weeks have been 100-105 in trucks that the A/C barely works. I am expecting to go to work tomorrow and be fired for not wearing a mask in the truck or on our driving range while administering tests. I have had a heart attack and now have two stints, used a CPAP machine for the past 19 years with the associated respiratory issues, have high blood pressure, etc etc. BUT the state and my employer have decided that my medical waiver to not wear a mask at work is invalid. Apparently they are more qualified than my doctor of nearly 22 years:angry: All to control the spread of a flu that has a 99.6% survival rate.

    Looks like you have a tremendous lawsuit if they fire you and you have a doctor’s waiver.

    Bob,  I assume you found the cache of Chinese pistols in the 2nd quarter of 1970.  I was a few Km's from the border in June.  The 155mm battery I was assigned to supported the incursion.  I spent a couple of weeks there before the 25th ID's assistant div. signal officer tapped me to move a pirate radio station located in An Loc & operated by the 11th ACR to Dau Tieng & operate it as the station's engineer.  The fun ended way to soon when the 25th returned to Schofield Barracks

    Yes. 2/7 Cav in the Sanctuary Counteroffensive, May-June ‘70.

    .And, the topper, just a few days ago, none of the people in the packed church for the services for Rep John Lewis are subject to the 14 day quarantine that ordinary people are subject to, AND that they were allowed to pack that church cheek-by-jowl in the first place.

    Image may contain: 1 person, closeup, text that says '/ was there 3000 years ago when they said "15 days to slow the spread"'

    Everybody in the church had masks on. As opposed to the idiots at the concert the other night.

    The experts have in truth put out conflicting info over the past few months. But this disease is a new one and research  has been revealing new things for months. Doesn’t mean the experts need to be thrown out with the bath water. Now I’m no dummy but I’m sure not a medical professional so I have two choices. Listen to the folks with experience in the field or do my own thing.

    I think things would be going better without the dang internet Conspiracy nuts spouting craziness every 5 minutes.

    "What gun it comes from makes no difference at all if all the other variables are the same"

    Point of impact is not a variable?


    Yes. He said The Other variables. I took that to mean point of impact is the most important.

    Sawmill Mary and I went west on I70 this morning to a match in Higginsville, Missouri.   A pickup pulling a camper with a dropdown back gate had signs saying that they were going to Sturgis.  We passed it several times as it would lag back and then come past aging. 


    We seen a lot of motorcycles heading west.


    As a side observation,   we noticed about half of private vehicle traffic on I70 had out of state plates.   From California to Vermont.  Florida to Wisconsin.  Texas,  Pennsylvania,  Indiana,  Ohio,  Tennessee,  Oklahoma,  lots of Colorado.  For some off reason, there were a lot of plates from George. 


    Just my conclusion,  American is sick and tired of being told what to do and are getting out.

    Americans have never had much patience.

    I had a chance at an auction to buy one of these made by Westinghouse that had Finnish capture marks on it.  I figured nobody else had an interest in Finnish captured pieces like I did.   Boy was I wrong.  Fifteen seconds into the bidding the bid was over $400 and climbing.

    The Finnish Mosin market is very ......robust. $$

    Will we be welcomed with our guns?




    Though not a constitutional right, personal firearm ownership is permitted in Chile for any resident over the age of 18. The extensive procedure for acquiring a weapon includes registering a home address with the national firearm authority (Directorate General of National Mobilization, DGMN), receiving psychiatric approval, and passing an official exam on the proper use and maintenance of firearms. A standard permit allows ownership of up to two weapons. An individual must apply for an additional license and provide justification in order to own more than two guns

  9. Of course the standard sniper rifle of Russia was the Mosin. Remington had a contract with the Tsar for a million rifles. They produced 850,000. A little over 100,000 were delivered before the communists took over in. 1917. They cancelled the contract with Remington and 

    New England Westinghouse. They said the rifles were sub standard. :lol:

    Remington and Westinghouse lost a lot of money on the deal. The US govt bought the remainder of the rifles and designated them the Russian 3 Line Rifle Cal 7.62mm. Some went to US troops but most were sold or given to foreign countries.

  10. I was just called a communist moron for saying I don’t have a problem with voting by mail, as I have done for years. 
    Call me Comrade Bob.
    And don’t use any complicated words when ya talks to me.


    Edit:  The purpose of my post is just to illustrate the oft amusing if cretinous behavior of the keyboard warriors on the Interweb. (Not that it really needs to be illustrated) 

    Not to spark a discussion on mail-in vs in person voting. I don’t care what anyone prefers.

     I also find it amusing that “Communist” is used by some folks anytime you disagree with them.
    I suspect most of them couldn’t define communist in coherent sentences.  :lol:

    Buck has a similar knife. I have had one for a few months and really like it.


    For the traditionalists, Buck also makes 110 and 112 autos now.

    I have stents and am on BP meds plus Plavix which helps against clotting.  Also, take the regular 81mg dose of aspirin.   One cardiologist  I went to had no problem with taking ibuprofen for arthritic pain on a regular basis.  However, I've moved my medical to the Dallas area and the cardio people at Baylor, Scott& White told me to only use NSAIDS like ibuprofen in times of acute pain and then modestly because of stroke danger.   This, especially in the presence of heart meds and some antibiotics that can have deleterious effects in the presence of the NSAID.  Therefore, tylenol is all I take now.


    Sounds to me that Volarten is worth a try in moderation.   It sure doesn't hurt to include your pharmacist in on the medical advice.


    BTW, are you taking anything for allergies as they sometimes can aggravate arthritic conditions?   Some may laugh but since taking Zyrtec, Air Borne, and a regular regime of kefir milk in lieu of over counter probiotics my overall condition has improved greatly.  

    I am fortunate. I have no allergies. I am on no prescription drugs or over the counter drugs.

    Well, it's looking like this dude is a bust.  Good for us.

    Don’t count your chickens. I’ve made that mistake before. Fingers crossed especially for the folks up the coast.

    Let me clarify my OP.

    Would lead bullets be a sufficient self defense ammo when used to fend off a home invasion perp?

    The reason I'm asking, is that with the current shortage of ammo in the 9mm, 357 and 38 special category, I find it interesting that Cowboy lead Ammo is readily available.

    Should I stock up on my supply instead?

    Serves a dual purpose.

    Which of these choices would do the best in the above scenario?



    That's what I'm using for practice in my Colt King Cobra. I have a few boxes of factory sjhp ammo to load when I carry it, but eh 158gr rn lead is fine for the range. If that's all yopu have, it's fine for SD.

    Not even if I had an AR-15 with 5 30 round magazines.  Let alone two six guns with five rounds each, a rifle with 10 and an empty shotgun.  Whatever the loads.

    It ain't a comfortable situation. I can think of others. ;)
