  1. I’m selling some currently that have been shorter term purchases where I can double what I paid for guns but keeping ammo. I feel with Supreme Court and senate as tight as it is nothing new drastic will pass in next 2 years at least. I am selling in prep of a drop....setting the money aside to buy back at what I hope are half the prices. For what it’s worth it’s my take, and holding ammo is just hedging my bet Could be I regret not tripling up on all of it.
  2. Dan....this thread made me think about the 3 boxes of 280AI Nosler ammo I have sitting here, with no rifle for it. now I’m contemplating a rifle just for them but man they are expensive. So far my top budget option is the Lipseys limited run of the Ruger Hawkeye African which can be found for under 1k and maybe a Leupold 2.5-8 on it. Love a cooper open country long range but ouch... I’ll be sure to send you the invoice because of your thread
  3. Painter prices up here where I live would be between 12-16k from quotes on the entire interior. I can paint at a snails pace if need be and spend 500-750 bucks on paint vs paying for the full job. I hate to paint but to me this is one of those that I should do if I can
  4. We’ve moved a lot for the military and work earlier, so I get to do a good deal of painting most of the time. For whatever reason, when I needed paint I went to a Lowe’s, HD, or Menards even and went to work. Recently moving again, the entire house is one color inside that of course the wife does not like...so here I go again. I told her only one color, which got me thinking buying a 5 gallon bucket (or 3). This led me to wonder why I never bought from Sherwin Williams....probably because I always used just a gallon at a time. Anyways, got their Emerald series at the sale price and it was 250 bucks for 5 gallons, which is 10-20 bucks higher than what I think I normally paid per gallon but I wanted to try it. Oh my word what a difference....why oh why have I not done this before. Goes on clean, nearly one coat with just touch of up of areas I didn’t have enough paint left on roller. No streaks, no runs, looks the same from any angle when done, and I swear I’m painting twice the area with the same amount of paint. Edges in so easy I haven’t put one piece of masking tape down! Yes it’s expensive up front, but money and time ahead in the end. Just thought I’d share in case anyone else is getting pressured to paint during the lockdown (formerly holiday) season. Since we can’t afford to shoot why not paint lol?
  5. You could take a risk that things will improve before too long and sell and make a great deal perhaps? Enough to buy a dream new reloading setup or whatever......challenges always have opportunities.
  6. They just do....im a converted believer of the Frankford Arsenal with no pins...wasted money on the magnet. Just use their solution and water....baam...
  7. They will get their revenue from raising registration on electric cars to offset gas tax loss. How do I know? Went from 140 a year to 350 a year overnight in a vehicle that just has a battery assist....I don’t even charge it on road but I get to pay the special taxes for it. Just wait....they will keep going up. Oh it also makes sense they now give huge tax breaks to buy and then just turn around and raise taxes once you have them....
  8. Been out of TP at Costco outside of Seattle an hour or so for a couple of weeks. I was there 30 min after open yesterday and managed to snag one of the last packs...Limit 1 signs all over it but you could see by the empty pallets it went fast. I think initial scare was riots if Trump win, and once media started running articles about a second shortage everyone goes out and buys more...
  9. If not too late, as a reluctant Apple fan might be worth going back. Haven’t had a droid phone for nearly 10 years. The integration with all Apple products is so well done, it’s generally quite easily and intuitive, and they don’t freeze up. My kids picked up IPads so easy when they were young. my wife’s parents have android phones...they can barely make calls, it’s an act of god for them to send a text message with a pic...they end up just emailing them for some reason. i resisted Apple a while, but now own many devices and am afraid our family is hooked on their systems...but aside from price in a good way.
  10. I think the most fun part is the family watching it together....it bridges the generational gap for us. At the same time, waiting for Friday nights like when I was a kid for the next show...good times.
  11. This has been the same since early studies showed 50-85 times the confirmed cases are actually infected and the numbers I ran probably 5 months ago still match what you mentioned. It’s statistically impossible for all the famous people and politicians that get tested to have half of them get it while we presume we don’t have the same rate...nonsense. If all is little people got tested you would see it skyrocket with lots of “didn’t even know I had it” responses. My 97 year old grandmother tested positive in a nursing home. Can’t tell the difference one bit, if they didn’t tell her she was positive I don’t think she would have ever known. You could also go look at CDC data for the past several years and see average daily and weekly death rates, and calculate for yourself if we have an extra 220k deaths....I won’t spoil it for you all....that way you’ll believe it with your own eyes.
  12. I will say this....Prime pays for itself pretty rapidly especially if factoring in gas prices for trips. I’m near Seattle, so I can order a lot of things and get the next day, great selection and best price shopping. Plus you get movie channels included and some other benefits. I remember talking to a coworker who didn’t have Prime and I was in disbelief. I asked her how she managed and she replied “I just plan ahead”.....
  13. Well technically one end of the barrel is threaded....
  14. Maybe this? https://www.xtremebullets.com
  15. It’s all about the sound....if you don’t care about a deep growl or putting straight pipes on it the 6 is probably fine but less time proven. The 8 will sound much better. For what it’s worth my only mustang was an 05 GT and so many people would stop and say how good it sounded at a light or something. I would push it out of the garage in the mornings and start it in the street to not wake up wife on way to work lol. On the other hand, having had F-150s with the 2.7 eco, the 3.5 eco, and the 5.0 the biggest dog was the 5.0. The 2.7 was the quickest and most responsive believe it or not while being great on economy. I understand they are differently set up than the car but maybe will help. my choice would be the challenger
  16. It’s going to get worse before better. Imagine all the protests and riots when a Supreme Court justice gets placed. Then triple that when one side won’t accept election results. Win or lose it’s going to be ugly as “any means necessary” and riots become the norm.
  17. I drive by probably a boat a month that is capsized from anchoring in too low of an area and bottom flipping it when tides recede but yet to come across this....
  18. for those of us in certain areas...
