Don, if I didn?t have a handgun and you wanted to give me your personal firearm I would gladly take it.

Heck, even though I have handguns & if you wanted to give me a non personal glock I would take it. After all it?s a glock, they don?t wear out kinda like jeeps you just rebuild em..... :tongue:

With all that stated, give it a few days before handing over your own gun.

I do think you should become a dealer, then give us "special" pricing (well maybe not Ken due to his affiliation with H) but I like the idea. And now you have a building where you could put a showroom too...... :likebutton:

Shawn, I did some prime rib for our Christmas party a couple years ago.
60-70 lbs...

What I did,
Steak spice and pepper rub, whole garlic cloves slipped in a stab cut 1" inch, I put a whole bulb in each roast.
In oven to caramelize the fat, 450* for about 15-20 mins.
Then onto smoker for a few hours. It was shocking how fast, want to say 3-4 hours only.
Took to 140* and called them done.

Turned out fantastic.

Not today, too much going on. This weekend though as it?s in the fridge and next up to bat......

Still need to download WiFi app & get that working as I haven?t taken time to mess with it as of yet.

HH6 wants prime rib for Christmas so gunna try to pick up a couple and run one later this week as a trial run.

I prefer to spend local, however it?s not always possible. That?s just business, if I can spend local I will as those dollars stay local. It?s kinda like state lotteries, you spend that money (to buy a ticket) and it gets consolidated to the government & then a couple winners. You take that same money and buy a locally made product or service & how many times does that money change hands with people in your own community? You do that enough the community changes for the better. Goes back to a saying my old man used to tell me which is if your neighbor is hurting financially this month how many months until you are in the same boat?

Congrats..... I'd set that grill up behind a well thought out VPN tunnel. don't want your supper hacked =P

Hmmm, my middle daughter read 10 year old at the time hacked my apple account few years ago. Took me 3 trips to apple store (luckily it was a mile from our apartment right after we moved to CO.) & 3 hours of my life to get that account back. After she changed password she forgot what it was.......

She likes good food so I should be safe!

Put the JK to work dragging home the new smoker and accessories. Assembled it yesterday and spent the afternoon running it up to the initial 350 break in round and then seasoned the box with canola oil before cooking 2 1/2 pounds of peppered bacon this evening. It was suggested by me to do the first cook of bacon so that I could get a visual of the where the hot and cold areas were in the grill. Bacon is hard to screw up so there's that...........

So tlane is from Lafayette, In? Is that right? My memory fails me a lot but I think that?s right.

So from Big D?s place that?s about 3 hours give or take a half hour?

In the real man get it done no bs sense. Go grab C max & the GJ, I figure c max is hung up in a mulch bed again. So get that fancy tug n go strap Tate sold ya & have HH6 give c max a little nudge. Hook up that trailer, go grab the sputtering SQ D and throw it on that trailer then head northwest towards Tlane. I agree, we don?t need you wrenching on sq d again. Neither of us is young enough for that wait again...... :popcorn:

I agree, lots of stupidity from both sides......

Whether the police like it or they all have a big PR problem. Things such as this, dragging nurses out of hospitals for doing their job, sitting in a stairwell for an hour during an active shooter situation, 3 am no knock raids on incorrect houses is all not helping you. As was stated, start hiring and promoting professionals with a clue is my suggestion. Like always the crappy 1% is really screwing it up for the rest of the upstanding 99%.

Correct, I was thinking in terms of weight of the round & tissue damage.

If he has taken deer at 250-300 yards that?s quite a bit farther than I have heard before. If true pretty impressive as well. My last buck was 175 yards with rifled barrel & sabots, good scope. I was personally confident in the range but not sure how much farther I would have gone.

In my experience the deer fist has to be able to stand back up before it can run away.  Those sabots are heavy and have a ton of energy in them.  In my limited experience with them it generally knocks them off their feet.

This guy is one of the few that I would probably believe such a claim from.  He is a nearly 40 year old bachelor with but one hobby, and that is hunting.  He comes from a family of very serious hunters.  He is also a fellow engineer, so quit methodical.  I'm sure he has tested out to that range and ranges in between and charted bullet drop.

Now you have me wondering what the bullet drop is at 300 yards on one of those sabots. It?s been several years but thinking it was around 8-9? at 150 yards....

After the near break-in attempt a couple years ago where the wife waved a shotgun in his face and he didn't immediately turn and run I pulled out my stock of rifled slugs that I used to use for deer season.  Just about as accurate as you can be with a quick shot on any open sighted rifle but a much larger hole.  Model 1300 Winchester I have had since my 12th birthday.  If came as a "Turkey special" with an 18" barrel.

I?ve witnessed the carnage a 12ga sabot can do in a large bodied buck at close range. Most don?t run at all if you get shot placement right.

Charles, as much as I admire your logic about firing that first round & your future lawyer I?m not sure you are gaining anything by doing so.......

Kinda goes back to that training session I had with my young wife years ago when we only had one kid. Had an exposed hammer side by side 12ga in the master closet. A long hallway to the bedrooms & told her if someone broke in and came down the hallway to just point that down the hallway and pull the trigger. My thinking the OO buckshot loads would do their job. Of course her being pretty smart her next question is what do I do then? I said pull the other trigger & make sure he doesn?t get up.

Dead guys have a hard time telling their side of the story & when the police show up the only thing you tell them is ?you feared for your life?.

Ya know I was just at my shop...stopped in the gun store quick to ask about said 870 that started this discussion. Somehow ended up leaving with another .270 Mauser. I blame you guys... another $200 I will never see again.


Somebody probably needs fired I'm just not sure who to blame on this one........ :popcorn:
