    Once I get one hot I like to soak it in penetrating oil,

    Well that one took a while. I have been acclimating myself this year. It makes the weekends much more enjoyable when you can go outside.

    Rip Chuck

    I just read that Chuck Berry passed, truely one of the father's of rock and roll and a great guitarist. I hope they remember to bury home with his ding a ling.
  5. I have a feeling this summer is going to be on the warm side and since doug is getting up in years I decided to install a puppy door, let me tell ya this is turning in to a money pit. I am having to swap the back door (the old one has a near full lenth window. Then a door big enough for a 130 lbs puppy. Plus paint blinds and any thing else I'm gonna have close to $500 in a doggy door. Dam On the plus side I might get to sleep all night once in.
  6. Wes I'm well aware of what libertarians are. As far as pros statement goes from where I stand I have seen a movement since 911 to do away with freedoms and privacy in the name of safety. That's from both the left and right. To be honest I don't see a lot of difference between the two major parties in the US.
  7. Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act (FOSTA) another ruse put up by our politicians, a bait and switch, they say it's to stop human trafficing, but it gives our government the power to go in and shut down websites they don't like by simply claiming that unknown actors used the site to commit a crime. think about this if this site is used to facilitate a transaction. Say Bob ask john to build him a custom, Bob pays but john flakes out (how many times have we heard that one) so Bob pressed charges and john gets nailed on wirefraud now the FBI can shut pg down. Would they? Maybe someone doesn't like the post wes just made. "Fascism is the new "security"." Pros you better watch out its thinking like that, that will lead down a road to libertarianism.
  8. At a certain age ya just got to stop trusting farts.
  9. Well here is how I see it if ya don't want to be around other people then don't. Sit in the back yard or move don't just curse people. But then again I don't help thing by smiling and laughing and being nice usually just pisses them off more.
  10. I got cussed out by a old lady and all I did was ask "how are you doing?" Last week I took the dog to the vet and he told me I need to start walking him to help his joints (he has a bad elbow). Today we where making our round and some old woman was sitting out side with her fat yapping fur ball who ran to the end of its leash and started barking. She started yelling and cussing I just smiled and wave asked how are you doing we kept walking.
  11. Mike no hurry but, let me know when ever you do it out we may be able to work something out.
  12. Mike to tell the truth my one of my biggest fears in life is loosing the ability to care for myself, I know I get that naturally my dad and grandmother where both very independent and I watched both loose that (niether did so gracefully). I don't think you can ever be ready for that kind of loss of mobility. On a lighter note I have a small collection of vintage radios, any way I was searching cl for stereos when I ran across a old radio shack realistic. That one wasnt really my tast but I don't have any realistic brand radios so I hit eBay and did a search for "realistic". Maybe I should have searched "realistic stereo"
  13. Triple digits will be here soon enough don't rush it.
  14. Good luck Mike. I hope you have a good one.
  15. I got my nine year old nephew coprolite for his birthday. Now he can tell everyone that I give the crappiest gifts.
  16. Fainting goats are awesome!
  17. I don't know if Perry still post but nice job if ya do.
  18. Look s like your going the rip it all out and start with a clean slate method. Usually that's the best way.
  19. Mike thats good and bad I hope she gets over it quickly. Finally got my grubby paws on a savage 24v 30-30/20ga over under. It's pretty exciting for me I have been after one for years and a buddy of mine has had this one but wouldn't ever sell it. Well today we struck a deal on it we could both live with. It's not that model 24's are rare it's the 30-30/20 that's hard to find usually I find them in 222/20 or 22lr/20 even 223/20 the 30-30 where usually paird with a 12ga.
  20. The weather app on my phone must me having issues it says 8 for the temp. I'm sure there must be another number there like a 48 or 58 even a number after like 81.
  21. The weather man just said "this will be the coldest night we have had all year" really
  22. I'm usually not with government regulation but I feel there is a need.
  23. I just had to let my dog out, the door was already open he wouldn't go out until I touched the door knob.
  24. Nice Wes enjoy sit back and enjoy.
  25. I see some potential for the American, but Ruger is pushing the precision rifle. A timney trigger and bedded In a good stock the American would probably be a decent choice. Savage is still savage they are putting out fairly accurate rifles but still have problems with the small parts over time. (Extractoes, ejectors ect. Breaking). Not a huge deal to fix but a major annoyance. Remington is being run by lawyers and bean counters and it shows (think Gibson) and marlin is being run by Remington, the marlin x7 rifles have potential but little aftermarket support and since they where discontinued about a year ago I don't see a lot of support popping up. Right now howa and Tika are putting some nice stuff out for the precision market. And don't get me wrong about Ruger I own about half a dozen of their products just not where. I would go for long range stuff.
