  1. Clearly your “privilege” showing through, somehow you expect not to have homeless people shooting up next to you and you do not realize being polite is racist/sexist/homophobic now. Expecting and wanting a safe, kind community where people follow laws, are helpful to others, etc is a sign that you need “woke” training as soon as possible.
  2. Just had to share...wife’s parents are in Colorado. They went through drive up shot area, and after the shot her dad asks “do I get a sucker now?”....the nurse responds “actually you are the sucker”....lol while that doesn’t seem professional it’s quite funny.
  3. Two words...Fanny Pack... otherwise this little thing works very well to avoid print in a multitude of positions. Front pockets, coat, cargo, vehicle, backpack whatever it’s cheap and holds well. I’ve bought expensive leather ones, alien gear ones, and would just as soon put my 43 in my pocket with this or no holster before many of them.
  4. 4 people on Oregon just got Covid after vaccine, and a 78 year old died today after 2nd dose, had some pre existing conditions. Also new studies show only 13% of those infected showing symptoms. Glad to hear all the successful doses here, hope they continue.
  5. Friends over last night in Tacoma area, one was a nurse and had to get vaccine. After first dose muscle spasms, numbness, and continued problems requiring upcoming visit to neurologist as doctors so far haven’t been able to tell her why other than that it “shouldn’t have been the vaccine” but are allowing her to opt out of 2nd dose.
  6. Hey, on the good side the US has seen a 98% reduction in flu hospitalizations...fact you can look up. Amazing....no one saw that coming....
  7. It certainly provides a catch all excuse to cover up anything else for many companies, businesses, schools etc. it can be used without much pushback or question, often with well planned and profitable reasons behind it.
  8. I think the heat might get oppressive for some as much as the cold can be a bother up north. Here’s some UHaul stats that rank migration trends. https://www.uhaul.com/Articles/About/22746/2020-Migration-Trends-U-Haul-Ranks-50-States-By-Migration-Growth/ Also is a forum for many states and cities, lots of topics and can ask questions. https://www.city-data.com/forum/
  9. That is a sabot, the pedals will fall off in flight. It’s a nice chest thump when one goes off and you are inside. Once it’s gone, flip the safety down, knee switch the door open, flip another one in, close it up get the hell out of the way and yell “up”...
  10. To Forty’s original point....I am quick to point out to my kids that should something like walking dead/virus/etc on a severe large scale actually happen, it’s probably more likely the harm will come from other people. I truly believe that, so yes, it is sad. I also truly believe if our country was attacked today by China that half of the country wouldn’t even care, fight back, and would say that we deserved it for our privilege. Last, they put a large effort into development and testing...but still no way possible to test side effect past the 2-4 months they most likely had afte
  11. I was promised 2,000 dollars for each of family to buy ammo...can we sue for that as well?
  12. As long as you tell them you are in the country illegally and a peaceful BLM protester you can do whatever you want. No reason to worry at all.
  13. Ice fishing is insanely boring to me, think it’s just drinking for most where if you catch a fish great... When I first took my wife we were with my stepfather of many years, in the tent and a muskrat climbed up and popped out of the hole. My wife leaned down and tried to pet it and I still remember my step dad slapping her hands away. Fun story though, wouldn’t believe it if wouldn’t have been there.
  14. Do you mean having someone manage your IRA for you or discussing index funds like S&P 500 vs short term options? I had a financial advisor as a pilot in my unit that owned his own small office and he would say 72% of the time we would be better off in the S&P fund and leaving it there vs paying someone to manage it. Find a low cost index fund like Vanguard was what he would always say.
  15. if you have to buy 9mm or other ammo right now, the best value buy is the premium defense rounds. The mark up on those is much less than FMJ. What used to be 8 to 10 bucks for 50 is now 30-40. A 50 round box of HST is maybe 60-70 bucks now on GB. Might as get the good stuff....makes more sense.
  16. Someone in Placer county died a couple hours after getting first dose...they didn’t identify which brand yet. Of course it could be completely unrelated.......
  17. I think it’s because people can’t find it on any online store....then gunbroker becomes the primary purchasing spot online and people adjust to what it takes. It’s a country wide audience as well for a very limited supply. Small shops without online sales options are probably holding the deals right now, especially if they are not savvy to what people are willing to pay right now. I’m still in selling mode...1,000 small rifle primers for 225 bucks, lots of ammo, guns etc. Clean out what you haven’t used or don’t want now and clean up! Sit on it for a few months and w
  18. Jimmy, if doing anything yourself and not sure of dates....we used PODS and that actually worked fairly well and reasonable. We thought we were moving 6 hours away...PODS dropped off our containers in scheduled day, we filled them, they picked up and took to warehouse. Our plans kept changing so we told them to hold, ended up moving 12 miles away lol, called and had them redelivered. Believe they store them in climate controlled warehouses but can’t verify, I will say not a thing inside them moved or was displaced...extremely impressed with that. Customer service was medium at b
  19. Hey I had the same thing happen with my check book on my last professional move! Glad I’m not alone lol
  20. Yes we can’t eat in a super well ventilated restaurant with half the seating removed here....it’s unsafe. Put up a non ventilated rental tent outside with no windows or vents and moist, humid non circulated air when you enter and pack as many people in as possible....and that is safe the wisdom of our governor is truly inspirational, but I’m not sure I’ll ever reach his ability to not breathe with his head so far up his ass.
  21. You can still find 7.62x39 for reasonable cheap. I’ve been watching 5.56 go up even further in last couple weeks and it’s around 1 buck a round....9mm is almost the same price. I bet gun prices on non collectible stuff keep dropping as no one has ammo for them........but I’m getting more and more likely to spend 150 bucks on 1,000 primers every day that goes by..... Benelli M4 with factory 7 round cap
  22. I think the best part of this thread is how some are taking it in stride and some as dead serious.
  23. Feds give a 7,500 tax credit for a qualifying electric vehicle. States can give incentives as well such as mine....but not until after I bought one. Then the state turned around and raised my registration 252% (not a typo) to make up for lost gas tax....so I got no state benefit but get to pay lots more each year for a Hybrid...not even an EV. Point of my note is the taxes will come en masse to EV owners to make up for lost gas tax revenue.
  24. Maybe be glad you didn’t get it yet.... https://www.yahoo.com/news/death-florida-doctor-receiving-covid-020002066.html
