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.

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.

Bobby, once you get certified where are you going?

Eventually I'd like to take Rescue Diver, Ice Diver. Not really looking at ever being an instructor, this will probably be a hobby for me.

Hot scuba instructor? Oh wait you?re taken still right?

Still taken, no female instructor except for the lead instructor's wife.

You want me to monitor someone? Just because I haven't DOT'd in awhile doesn't mean I've forgotten how. Carefully laid plans and all.

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.

but i dont have a whole lot of room to begin with.

Sawzall will take care of that.

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.

say what?

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
Origin 12 Shotgun
ARAK 21 and 31
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.

Oh, those tunes...

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.

Yep those tunes. It's never been brought up after you installed the dial on the dash, so I figured I'd ask.

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.

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.

Ok fine, I'll come down and put the equipment to work. I normally charge BBQ and sweet tea, but it can be negotiable.

I've eaten enough substandard food in my life so it's a habit to use a flavor enhancer such as Sriracha or a hot sauce. But believe it or not I have eaten many meals sans Sriracha or hot sauce... not many but I have.

And when the plows get to the area, fighting all the abandoned cars just slows down their work. Every area has its own requirements for calling in the crews after hours. Just depends on where you are at the time. Plow trucks could be working but just not where you happen to be.

Oh I know the different hours. I just know from before the county roads and on occasion even the main highways weren't touched. Good thing was I didn't have to deal with crazy prople attempting to drive on the road. Was quiet and peaceful.

Even in WI there are plenty of people that don't know what to do or forget in the first snowfall.  A few years back I watched somebody jump out of the way of a out-of-control car entering a pile-up.  I was already in the middle-of said pile-up and successfully stopped in time to not hit anybody.  I watched in my mirrors, bracing for impact as 2 cars came flying in out of control.  The first one veered into the ditch to my left.  The second impacted the car directly in front of me while barely coming in contact with the corner of my front bumper.  All you could see was the scuff mark in the winter bumper cover I had installed at the time.  Now the two idiots involved in said impact get out of their vehicles to yell and scream words of encouragement to each other.  At this point a second wave of uncontrolled vehicles enter the ditch, colliding with an un-occupied vehicle in the ditch, while nearly missing its owner as he leapt out of the way.

Even more fun is when they don't plow or haven't begun to plow and people abandon their vehicles in snowdrifts on the roads. Makes for a "fun" nighttime slalom course on narrow roads.

Thanks Bobby. I was reading the battery life on Don's post up there, and chuckled out loud.

600 is realistic. He'll either have the option for a 4 hr shutoff or an 8 hr auto shutoff.

My other Eotech uses the CR23 batteries. And they did not last very long at all.

Which model is that? If you call EoTech ask them if there's something for that.

Firearms / Re: A/R Pistol build
« on: February 06, 2018, 08:08:40 PM »
Bobby, couldn't find a # on it anywhere, but pretty sure it's like Don's, a 512.

If it uses the AA's just call and ask them if there is the battery compartment upgrades or parts available. They should be able to hook you up pretty soon with them. I think it helps with battery life. They are pretty good about stuff like that, their customer service is pretty good. Also if you can read the serial number off the sticker they can use that to help you out.

I think that's their base model, but still a viable option for most people. As for the thermal shift, that people have/had been talking about I've never experienced it. Granted I wasn't HALOing into the North or South Pole then immediately going into a hot desert environment. I always used to re-zero or reconfirm my zero between the hot and cold seasons.

Bobby, thanks for that info on the eotech :likebutton:

No problem. I didn't know about it until I called and asked about something battery related and they told me about the upgrade. So I pass it on when I see something pertinent.

But I'd love to have a new EXPS model or whatever its called.

So, Bobby, you used the Eotech?

I did. I've used the ACOG, Aimpoint M68s & M4s, and EoTechs while I was overseas. I prefer the battery life on the Aimpoints and the reticle on the EoTech. Combine those and I'd love it.

What's this battery box thing Bobby? Mine eats batteries for lunch.

It's not so much of an upgrade, more of a fix. You replace the dogbone and spring ( If I'm remembering correctly) at the base of the compartment with a newer version that EoTech will send you for free. Takes maybe 5 minutes. What model do you have?

Here's a better pic of it. But I'd still call EoTech or L3 or whatever and ask for the parts.
