Well he can fire me as well. I've been looking at Powerstrokes too. Granted I'm definitely not buying one anytime soon, but I'm watching.

Well I didn't do it today, but last night a friend asked if I'd join the VFW post where he's the commander so I went and sat through one of those meetings. Today I went to work.

Serious, I bought it used and I scoured it since I didn't trust them to have taken care of it, and used it once, but it's since gotten wet and needs some TLC.

I haven?t had breakfast yet, you two need to warn people before we walk into things like this early in the morning......

You think before breakfast is bad? I've only had 1 cup of coffee over 2 days..




Remember walking (and falling) on those things in Southern Afghanistan???

Yea, I'm done with rocks!

I have "fond" memories of rocks in some countries..

Bobby,
You sound like some safety Nazi

You're an Airborne grunt, act like one! ;-)

Ladder in the bucket is fine!

Probably cause I'm a Safety Trainer and Fall Protection is part of my purview. However, I can say that during the last blizzard I was shoveling dense wet heavy snow off the roof in windy slippery conditions.. So maybe I don't have much leeway either..

For the record, I can still PLF and walk away... TRN maybe not so much.

I seem to remember you bought climbing gear, I also saw trees. But I also see a roof that could have a fall arrest system mounted to provide a safe and effective system to facilitate a safe working environment for someone to paint and for further upcoming maintenance.

Ah cool, didn't realize there was a pic approval process. Must only be for pics hosted off the forum server, not linked from elsewhere (like tapatalk)?

It's possible, I just saw by the pics it said "Approve All" by the groups of photos so I approved them for you.

No, lol  :tongue:

Honestly, haven?t thought that far ahead. My opinion is there?s a market there though, I will be addressing the GLO product line in stages. Some stuff will no longer be available (once I fire sale some inventory) and more parts will then be added. There will be many conversations between now and where I end up so maybe we should discuss more. I know you were wanting bumpers, but I?m sure there are other weak spots to address as well on that Jeep.

Alright then. I'll be waiting for some news.

Well on Tuesday I paid $620 for my Jeep's service, then declined when the dealership tried to charge me $470 for labor to install a new radiator. I went to O'Reilly yesterday and bought a radiator for $160. So that's my last couple days.

Here I thought you were getting certified for a vacation activity. Are you volunteering on a local fire Dept or anything?

Nope no vacation destination for me. I pitched an idea to the VP, now President, of the Charity I'm a part of and promptly forgot about it. He eventually got it all approved and I'm one of the first 7 to go get certified. As for a local fire department... maybe down the line once I get more training and practice.

Got PADI certified many years ago. Picked up some used gear a couple years back and got a new rescue tank. No cold water for me.

Thinking about buying my own used equipment once I get my card.

Ya know, Special Forces runs a dive school out of Key West. I used to go down there to provide the Halo platform for 10,000-14,000 foot jumps into Shark DZ.
Guy like you could make it through SF training...Heck I did the hard part, and I'm just a pilut!
Just sayin...

I knew a guy who was there as a student then an instructor. I may be passing this course but that's a whole new level of Scuba.

Snowfall Bobby?

Yea snow...


Yeah, Bobby's area and north a bit got pounded with snow over the weekend.  Some places saw 33" of a very heavy dense snow.

The 33" of snow isn't far from me. I'm sure I'm a little over 29" but I'm not measuring down to the exact amount. I was anticipating having to go into work yesterday but they shut the company down. The city and the surrounding areas declared snow emergencies and said only drive for emergencies, especially since there were multiple roofs collapsing from the snow loads. So I got to stay home and study for Scuba course this weekend.


I knew they got hit, but 29" is almost beyond belief.
Kentucky having received that much snow (Over a 2 year period) would have sunk into the depths, never to e seen or heard from again!

I can send you a couple pics if it'll help bring the fun to life for you.

Before I bought my recent Jeep I was looking around at something bigger. The 6.0s kept popping back into my mind due to the same reason there are a lot of them around my area. I tend to think of how easy parts are to come by without going to a city if I can avoid it.

My thought was I really don?t ever shoot the 30.06 anyhow and this would be moving toward less stocking calibers. I do have quite a bit of 30.06 ammo but I?m sure I could find it a home or just sit on it for barter value in the future.

Keep the 06. Never know when you'll want to go back to the classics.

Don, keep the load as close to the ground as possible when traveling. Safer and balances out the weight.

did I miss something?


You did..

THE MULE is a direct fit for any platform that accepts the 1 and 3/16? threaded buffer tube used on AR15's. Some platforms don?t accept the 1 and 3/16? threaded buffer tube from the factory, but can be modified with a simple addition of an adapter to do so.
The most common platforms that have adapters available allowing them to accept AR15 style stocks are:
Remington 870 Shotgun
Mossberg 500 and 590 Shotgun
AK47
Origin 12 Shotgun
ARAK 21 and 31
MP5
Sig 556
Ruger Mini 14
M1A and M14
M1 Garand
M1 Carbine
* Additionally THE MULE will fit onto some variants of crossbows that are setup to accept the AR15 buffer tube.

I only use the light towing tune, #3 I think. It is a performance booster to be sure. Very driveable and all the power with a load I'd ever need.

The other thing I?d like to state. Although I don?t always agree with him and currently he is getting a bit beat up on this thread I might add. Norm is a great sounding board and makes me think outside of my stubborn box at times.

I don't think he's getting beat up. I see a civil discussion between adults who are responding with opinions and in cases backing them up with facts and source material.

« on: February 23, 2018, 12:38:01 PM »
Bobby that's a valid point..I recently just ruined one myself actually. I went to the gun shop and purchased another one. It would have taken me exactly 5 extra seconds to show my purchase permit or concealed carry (which works the same way in Nebraska) to buy the part.

I can purchase a weapon the same way, that concealed carry permit or my gun "purchase permit" which one or the other is required to buy a handgun here, allows me to buy a weapon such as say a handgun as fast as I can fill out the FFL form and hand em the $$$$. No ATF background check is required. In Neb if say your convicted of a felony you are required to surrender your permit at such time. The theory being then the ATF background check should "catch" the felony record and deny a sale.

I have personally seen that system fail as the ATF does not update daily (likely impossible at this time) so a felon gets his/her weapon. A better approach would be the pre screening of requiring a purchase permit for any sale, thus allowing a actually simpler more stream lined, and likely better system.

They system we have in Neb is not perfect....it could be improved easily. The reason I suspect it hasn't been is largely the box stores don't use it anyway so.... it's not going to matter how well they screen the law abiding people, They  are not the issue anyway.

So take it a bit further and look at it like this. Most states don't recognize other states concealed carry permits, so in this situation certain states might/won't recognize your Nebraska permit to buy parts; unless its a national initiative. You go visit a friend or whatnot and bring your rifle, you break a BCG part and have to buy one as you can't find the spare part in your gear box; however it's not possible as you don't have a permit that's recognized by that state . You borrow one from someone or they give you one, then in effect you and the other person just broke a law, by not utilizing an approved FFL to facilitate the transfer of a serial numbered permit controlled item, which would make you both felons.

Lets put a serial number on the AR's bolt carrier group.

Why? So if some part of a BCG part breaks you'll need to get approved to buy a new $xx.xx part? Just making conversation here.
