  1. They're working on a budget, or maybe they're working on a profit margin?
  2. Not that I have Glocks, but for most autos, jacketed bullets are the best bet for functioning and not leading....and feeding, as well....and feeding is the most common problem with autos...(that's why I prefer revolvers..) Revolvers can handle higher variations in bullet weights, and powder loads, and are great for your own cast bullets....(which I prefer, as well)
  3. Dang, I knew I was missing something....My dick doesn't have any hands....just a mind of it's own....
  4. Sounds to me like you need to organize a local watch.... Make sure someone is watching the streets or get cameras installed....get active, that's much better than worrying.....Get that sucker!
  5. Yeah, are they still open? If so, just walk in, check out the prices on what you'd like and pick up whatever is the value of your card. Place the card on the table, and walk out with it....If there's any problem, let them call the cops and show them the card... This was similar to the way the judge told me to collect the cost of a broken window from a fellow who deliberately threw a brick through my storefront window, while he was drunk... He never had any money, so I had no recourse for getting the law to help...I asked the judge what to do, and he said, "wait until he goes to the bar after getting paid on his job, and when he puts his money on the bar for his drinks, walk up and pocket it...."
  6. Same here...just doing the job, and doing it right! That's the reward in itself. If it weren't for the hardships in life, we'd be nothing but a bunch of wimps...
  7. Now that would be the most amazing feat of the century....can I have your autograph? The impossible is always changing...
  8. So does that make it out of date? Or are you just against the idea of it, and want to complain about something...but don't know exactly how...
  9. You mean youse guys haven't figured it out, either? dang, I thought I was slow...must just be the time continuum...
  10. Saved many a day on the water from being skunked, by having the birds point out where the fish were....and the frigate birds point out the bigger ones, like kings, or cobia....they both have my regards. Mojo, karma, whatever you call it, it you deserve it, you get it! Leave the birds alone, unless you like gull fricassee....
  11. Thought I'd post a big snake that I took when I was younger....much younger...This old rattler was 7 ft. 1" and would have been a record setter if I had been able to keep her alive...unfortunately, as you see, she met her demise...but just last year, I was able to catch her duplicate, a 7ft. plus a smidgen...(couldn't stretch her out much, since she was squirming so much, and very powerful) And this time, I kept her alive and moved her to the back of my back forty acres, where she would be unmolested, and had plenty of rabbits and rats to eat...Most of all, I regret that I didn't think to take her back for a photo, before I turned her loose... The photo shows that the board I had wasn't both wide enough or tall enough to properly show the size, and I wrapped the skin around the board along the sides, and at the bottom where the "vent" makes a hole..
  12. Rattlers were often bigger back then, since there were fewer people to kill them....they had time to grow..but sometime there is a monster in your own backyard, that has somehow survived...I keep a small collection of rattles, myself, after having killed a good number that neighbors insisted on killing..
  13. The best solvent for removing lead is not a solvent...try this from Brownells...use the cleaner first on a patch loaded with cleaner, wrapped around a brass brush. 20 or so passes through the barrel, depending on how bad it is, and then use the bore polish, with the same procedure. Clean with Hoppe's #9 and look inside with a strong flashlight behind your eye...(looking thru the barrel with light from the background going through the barrel does not show the fouling) J-B® BORE BRIGHT J-B® NON-EMBEDDING BORE CLEANING COMPOUND
  14. By the time it gets bad enough to be troublesome, you won't have enough "cognition" to know it! The old "better a live dog than a dead lion" theory....
  15. My sister and her husband went on a survival safari through the Everglades, back in the late 50's, and lived off what they fished for and took along in a 18 ft. canoe....They made a movie of it and called it "Everglades Safari"....and they ate a lot of fish, and yes, they took their rods and reels...(6 months)
  16. First post ever....keep your snakes in britches, and your nuts on board...you'll need 'em...
  17. He speaks for himself....maybe he is one of the cowards he speaks of, but a lot of men in this country gave their lives for the principles of freedom and equality, and he calls that cowardice, then he is outright wrong!
  18. Fla. law survived the challenge, as well....6 months ago.. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) _ Employees with concealed weapons permits can keep guns locked in their cars at work in Florida, but businesses are allowed to prohibit customers from bringing firearms on their property, a federal judge has ruled. The Florida Chamber of Commerce and the Florida Retail Federation, which challenged the state law that took effect July 1, huddled with their lawyers Tuesday to understand the split decision by U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle and decide whether they should challenge it. Rick McAllister, president and CEO of the retail federation, said he doesn't believe his organization will appeal. "On balance, it's a pretty good decision," he said. "Are we happy about the employee thing? No. We'll keep working to change the Legislature's mind." Disney was pis*ed!
  19. You been watching "Lost"?
  20. Yeah, it might have killed a few fish, not counting a couple hundred lives...
  21. It's been my experience that cry babies get the teat.....and Uncle Sam is really an Aunt.....
  22. Yup, cared for my mother w/dementia....not hard on her, except when fear crept in her hallucinations... Any without honor....
  23. Just what I figured....playing games and got too close. Tag. You're it!
  24. Bad design interior..Just how are you going to get up front with the anchor, and/or tie off up there, climb over the windshield? yeah...no, not for fishing, anyways...give me an open interior with access, where you can walk a fish around....and anchor.
  25. Don't forget to eat the green tops to those beets, not only are they delicious, but they are better than spinach for you! (Just include them with the roots, when you cook them)
