  1. That is what I saw too, toast and a sausage link. Looked light on ingredients. Now we have a description clarifying that it is melted cheese. And it seemed to vary as much in the regions of Italy as it does here. IE. New York v Chicago.
  2. @Alpo A halter is a leading device. Commonly used on a horse, cow, dog, goat...
  3. No, the nickname predates tv. I remember books in school using gingers as a reference to an Irish group. a1825 R. Forby Vocab. E. Anglia (1830) , Ginger, of a pale red colour, particularly applied to hair.
  4. The kids played her stuff on the YouTube at Thanksgiving. Lady is not the word I’d use.
  5. It was by the ear for us. Grandpa said cow or kid, it goes where the head goes.
  6. @Seamus McGillicuddy the protesters disagree with you about John McClane, unless you’re saying not to renew his service contract. They say that Hans Gruber did not need killing and it was excessive force. https://babylonbee.com/news/large-turnout-for-memorial-for-hans-gruber-who-was-thrown-from-a-building-by-a-police-officer
  7. Thanksgiving will be a small gathering this year. We won’t be spending the night preparing so I desided to check what GRIT had to offer. Chisum. Love it, hate it, or indifferent? List your favorite scene.
  8. He got busy raising his family and patrolling the streets of Chicago for ten years. They say he travels now.
  9. Send the inlaws on a nice cruise, they say tickets are cheap right now.
  10. The real reason for underwear, containment.
  11. Yes. The solar fields are replacing row crops here. Then they put the feed lines and towers through the neighbors fields. After the contract expires in 20-30 years, it is the farmer’s expense to remove the solar panels and deal with the EPA.
  12. Thanks Cholla. We were getting low on groceries and buckets. I wonder what she’ll say when this reaches the doorstep. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1021687746?pid=322909
  13. A lot of people have switched to internet banking like Chase bank. They don’t have a local branch. You deposit checks by direct deposit or taking a picture of it on your phone. Pay all your bills online. Live on plastic. You can get an atm card for cash. The ATM owner usually charges $3 per withdrawal whether it is $20 or $200. That being said, I wouldn’t trust that buyer either.
  14. Good idea. Tomorrow’s project should involve cleaning the drawer of old boxes left by arms that went down the trail.
  15. FBI switched to 9mm again so many municipalities and civilians followed. The market dropped out of 40 a couple years ago. Many retailers talked about being shocked by the demand for 40 during this COVID scare.
  16. The local shop sold some dusty 357sig pistols because they still had 357 sig boxes on the shelf. Ammo was limited to two boxes per person per day or per firearm purchase. One customer bought 2 pistols to buy 4 boxes. Personally, I might buy a conversion barrel to fire 357 sig through an existing 40 s&w. Overpaying the current pistol prices for an available ammunition that has never been more than a curiosity, no thanks. If the 357 sig pistol was on sale, I may buy it, then buy a conversion barrel to run 40 or 9 through it.
  17. To the original post: The prices for smelters and casting equipment has gone up at local estate auctions. The lead bars have slightly gone up in price. All other components and factory rounds have gone up considerably. They are still out there for cash if you’re willing to beat the going bid. I’ve found bartering to be more economical lately. Many of those new gun buyers don’t know enough about firearms and the laws to know the difference. If the “study” asks “Do you support gun control?” “Do you support universal background checks to end gun show loopholes?” the ignorant participant has been given no definition or description of the terms or proposal. They have further been misinformed by inferring there is a loophole at gun shows. I can understand why they vote yes. It is our job to educate them about misinformation, cherry picked stats, and changes that could be effective rather than another restriction on law abiding citizens.
  18. A “standard” capacity would likely be limited to 10 rounds, making 11 or more round capacity an NFA device. I’ve not found any Politician publishing that differentiates box fed from tube fed. Politician has not defined “large” on his website so we mist reference the third parties he does and his prior voting in congress. Both show 10 rounds being “standard” capacity.
  19. He will first redefine “assault weapons” to be more encompassing. $200 is just the tax stamp. If you have someone else do the paperwork or buy a trust, there is $60-100. There may be a charge for the fingerprinting service, $20. The engraving cost per device, $60-75. Who will hold possession of the items while waiting for paperwork? If it must be turned in to an FFL, is there a monthly storage fee or a return transfer fee? Currently, the process is taking about 7 months, expect that wait to spike dramatically if the proposed plan is followed. Is your existing FFL set up to handle this transfer (SOT)? The cost and headache could be much higher than $200 per device.
  20. Here is the article from the above link: “The first case testing a Trump administration edict outlawing bump stocks failed during a brief federal bench trial in Tuesday in Houston. A federal prosecutor withdrew the unique charge before the trial began for a Houston man accused of owning the device. However, the defense was prepared to call an ATF expert to testify that bump stocks, attachments that cause a rifle to fire more rapidly, do not render a semiautomatic gun a machine gun. Senior U.S. District Judge Gray H. Miller convicted Ajay Dhingra, 44, on three remaining counts that he lied when he purchased a handgun, rifle and ammunition, and illegally possessed a weapon as a person who had been committed for mental illness. Experts had conflicting views on the matter, said defense attorney Tom Berg. But Rick Vasquez, a retired ATF agent and firearms expert, would have told the court the bump stock did not meet the statutory definition of a machine gun. The prosecution dismissed case, he said, because the government couldn’t prove beyond a reasonable doubt the bump stock was a machine gun. Dhingra’s sentencing is expected to be expedited. He has been in federal custody since his arrest in 2019. Sidestepping the standard congressional lawmaking process for firearms, Acting U.S. Attorney Matthew Whitaker issued the rule in December 2018, giving official notice through an administrative rule that bump stocks fell within the federal definition of “machine gun” because they allow a person to shoot a semiautomatic firearm in a continuous cycle with a single pull of the trigger. Berg said the difference, according to the expert, was that a machine gun continues to fire once you pull trigger. The bump stock is a different mechanical operation, you can hold it loosely, but you have to make contact with the trigger each time and fire single shots. Bump stocks became a hot button issue following a 2017 massacre from a Las Vegas in which a gunman killed 58 people during a country music festival.”
  21. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/first-bump-stock-prosecution-under-trump-edict-backfires-in-houston/ar-BB1b6mCC Regardless of how you feel on bump stocks, this post is about the government bending to pressure against our rights.
  22. Put the clip on your magazine to mark your page. Put your magazines in a baggie with a note identifying them.
  23. Alpo, that has been suggested by anti-gun groups like Everytown.
  24. What size are your rows?
