  1. They shouldn't wear those pants anyway, its like giant sand paper when they lean on my car.
  2. He chose to play Roscoe P Coletrain that way. He read the lines before auditioning and made the conscious decision on how to portray the sheriff. Casting liked it and he got the role. According to James Best in an interview. He was in this mornings episode of Have Gun, Will Travel.
  3. Another article listed the informant as a nervous nelly neighbor.
  4. Obscure? As of 5/10/19, type 03 FFL were 52,704 out of 131,689 total FFLs according to the BATFE.
  5. The tractor was not perfectly centered on the trailer. When the hood latch broke, that created an unbalanced wind resistance like a sail. The trailer began to whip which ripped the wheels from the axles, causing the trailer to roll. When the trailer rolled, the safety pin fell out of the hitch causing it to disconnect from the truck in the direction of the whip. As the trailer went off tail first and dug in, the KE of the tractor carried it upward towards the sky. Ending with this picture. The Amish will be interested in this newly converted skid trailer but not in the tractor.
  6. This little muzzle device comes in handy when your state bans fireworks. You can fire it at night for just 23 cents a pop. Entertain old and young while justifying another accessory.
  7. Handling the Ruger 77/17 in the store, it is a better fit and finish rifle. The bolt is more refined and felt tighter. The B-mag bolt has more slop when pulled back, my bolt handle can hit the optic bell. The bolt likes to be man handled for proper feeding, not a slow and easy "don't spook the coyote" type bolt. The Ruger balance was better than the synthetic stock B-mag. Haven't found a local Ruger owner to compare accuracy with. Some of the early B-mags did not group well. My first field barrel would group 5 shots 2.5" at 100 yards. Some people say it was poor production ammunition and others said it was the Savage barrel. Savage fixed it a few years ago, tweaking the rate of twist. My newer field barrel groups well, around an inch (eye balled, not measured) at 100 yards. The heavy stainless barrel in a wood stock was measuring groups of an inch (measured) at about 125 yards. These were impressive groups for me, even shooting on the bench.
  8. Did your test administrator remove the magazine before driving on top of the pistol? We've found steel magazines are important to polymer frame integrity.
  9. It'll be a B-mag if you're looking at the Savage line. This is a rifle that should be tried in store before buying or ordering as the bolt action is not as fluid as the 93r17.
  10. The 17 HMR is adequate at open sights distances. The HMR is quieter, more widely available, available in a reliable semi auto and smooth bolt actions. The 17 WSM gives you extended ethical range to take advantage of the scope. Ammunition can be had for 17 HMR prices. You can buy whatever brand ammunition you want in 20gr, it is all made on the same line. I don't know if all 25gr is made on the same line.
  11. There is a Youtube video of a doe that is killed by concussive force by a close passing 50 BMG. 17HMR over the 22WMR, 17 WSM over 17 HMR if you are using a scope.
  12. You must be a preferred customer. Capital One sent a follow up letter, they have only called me about fraudulent charges. With increasing print and postage costs, you'd think there would be more automated calls. Maybe legal issues require the printed letters. The Cabela family was trying to buy the company but Johnny Morris paired with Goldman Sachs before they got the capital. The acquisition has not been favorable to the Cabela's customer base.
  13. Sometimes the recall or bulletin repair the engineers come up with to fix their mistake requires a custom new tool. The engineers didn't always develop it so we had to buy it from Mac or SnapOn. A high quality and expensive tool that is only used for 3 months to a year depending on how quickly customers repond to their letter. It was impressive how quickly the tool companies could bring the product to market, often on the tool trucks in weeks.
  14. Kettering University (formerly General Motors Institute) does co-op work experience too.
  15. He is probably out by now, that happened in 2016.
