CIEMR / Re: Government Shut Down
« on: Today at 02:01:49 PM »
Wow, I must be a closet Texan......I agree Charles!

I'd REALLY like to see DACA expire without change and ICE turned loose to round-up and deport everyone of them with a criminal record, who hasn't already self-deported.  ALL BENEFITS WITHOUT CITIZENSHIP TERMINATED IMMEDIATELY!  Life saving medical treatment only, administered free, conditional upon an immediate ride back to their country of origin and the promise of immediate incarceration upon unlawful return to the US.

That piece of scum who just bragged at his hearing, the he wished that he'd kill more cops after being deported several times, should be tried quickly using his own comments as Prosecution Exhibit #1 and then taken out and shot, hanged, beheaded (pick any one) immediately in a public place in the closest town square to the courthouse.  Same treatment for citizen criminals with overwhelming physical evidence of similar violent crimes; the return to the Clinton era Welfare to Work program to stop the career leeches on Society and a shift to private driven Charity assistance instead of  US Government ineptitude growing the problem.

Ooops, I guess that last cup of Coffee pushed me over the edge too.....or not!

I know nothing.

I?ll run some data through the ballistic calculator next week.

Frankenstein loads won?t get you much in barter or in interoperability when the fecal matter spatters

However keep in mind that all the dudes shooting 243 and 7wsm in competitions were only getting about 4000 rounds down a barrel before it was worn out from all that hot powder in the throat.

Great points Charles.....wasn't so much worried about barter as much as long distance communication with prairie dogs, coyotes and the like in my retirement.......and maybe vaporizing full beer cans at Don's Kintukee cottage!

Rather than bury a steel column why can I not bolt a steel flanged post to the slab??

My uneducated guess would be that the stress/force is better spread across more of the beam and concrete instead of a small section of studs/bolts susceptible to flexing in high winds.  Think weak spot like your wrist versus your forearm.

Having dug/extracted several rotten posts/concrete from my fence the last few summers, I HIGHLY recommend using some form of metal solution!

I got an email from Integrity Arms that announced a pre-sale on a match barrel with other stuff and then read the description: interface with 6.5 AR bolt and similar parts.  Less susceptible to wind drift and flatter trajectory using Federal projectile and factory loads appear to be already available.

Charles, you know anything?

After reading all of these posts, I realized that I?m Manager material!  Sounds like giving students feedback, grades & suggestions for improvement!  I then laugh when they graduate and enter your world (brat voice from Simpson?s) ....Aaah hAa!

Guess that?s why we like Bourbon now isn?t it!

Today I junked up a thread following Shawn?s lead and then sat back with this before my daughters BB game!

Shawn-

I like Glocks, have Colt Gold Cup since before Glock was anything other than a Chinaman saying clock though, so I guess that shows flexibility and a willingness to adapt to new things! 

Just sign-up again as -Shawn SquareD- and one of us will approve you and you can vote; you can then sit in your garage and collect dust and leak oil on the floor.....

I vote whatever the HH6 says and be happy with it!

I like Bourbon Shawn, he hasn?t lumped me in with the chronic offenders group.....and I HATE cankles!

Uhh, Mikey, that one is about 1/4" less capacity than what he needs. :)

Yup, but I really liked the disassembly and review process; gives a good assessment of how it?s built etc.  TRN - my thoughts exactly, but given his statement that wishbone rules apply, he declared a winner!  That guy takes apart all kinds of stuff this way too!

i have a "black thumb" and kill anything i touch. Luckily my mother in law is living on the property now and she can grow anything.

Give that woman chicken wire and a cd player and you got the garden of eden in a few months.

I do plan to build a green house as that level of sustainability is on our radar.

But... barn first.
Stew,
Watch for the upcoming geo-dome greenhouse/fish farm thing I plan to build some day, err, week, err month, err year, errr, someday.

I teach HS Art & Photography; less about teaching as of late and more about managing ill behavior and figuring out how to teach those who actually want to learn in the process. I spend my day shaking my head wondering why teachers are the only ones really held accountable. State of ILLinois saw fit to pass a law that SEVERELY limits suspensions and expulsions.  Needless to say, I have learned to ignore much of what I used to turn over to Deans for disciplining them as they have their hands tied. So the essence of what I due is trying to perfect the concept of picking up a turd with bare hands without getting dirty!  Manager of multiple people with multiple needs with many who don?t really want your product while trying to meet the needs and desires of those who really do; required to treat them all equally - some with special behavior issues MORE equally.

On a serious note:

When you DO decide to try and use it like a chainsaw, DON'T - They make a hydraulic cutting claw - equipment company might have one you can rent and attach to "Spud" and use it to shear cedars and SMALL trees off at the base instead of trying to run/ruin your new brush cutter thinking it's a buzz-saw!

It?s a neat idea - it?s probably the type of thing that might HELP a libtard evolve over time.  Develop relationships and actually have conversations within a group of people could help make snowflake syndrome less likely to occur.  Given your corporate background Charles, I?m sure you could supply the information for the libtard across the table to come to their own conclusion that they are a special kind of stupid!

Charles-

I would recommend Solitude for skiing in Utah - used to be one place that was Ski only which kept the knuckle heads to a minimum, was off the beaten path and great family place.  Snowbird & Alta are beautiful but can get crowded - great Ski Schools at all 3 if someone needs/wants lessons.

Strawberry Resevoir is great for ice fishing trout. Trout Bum 2 is a great fly fishing guide service should you want to go that route.

 That particular 46 is kind of a Frankenstein type development. I?ve not been there to experience it firsthand yet, but I understand you can experiment with multiple different combinations of chard staves to put into the barrel for the secondary aging process. Makers has built and developed a new hillside cold aging cave specifically for this rollout.  I?ve not tried any yet firsthand, and look forward to it!  There are several different ones out in a big name beverage depot near me-I guess I?ll have to pick one & see what I think. My point is that you may not like one yet you may love another.

 Again, feel free to send that swill to me and I?ll give it a proper burial !

My wife has about a dozen chickens.  We haven't seen an egg since temps dropped back in November.  Not sure what's up with that.  The eggs are so much better then store bought though.

We also have a rooster, named him Bruce.  He was supposed to be a girl.

Shawn is probably right for two reasons: shorter days and really cold temperatures trigger survival programming for survival of hatchlings.  Adding heat and more light will probably get them laying again in a week or so I?d guess.

Pray on it Don......REGARDLESS of the final decision/outcome: This project is what built this site- that little factor has paid tremendous dividends in multiple areas. Most importantly, the seeds sown and some already harvested in Christ?s name. You know some of those names Don (some we don?t and may never) and I know that they are worth more than ALL the money each one of us have expended on topics covered on the Real Man site!

Spent the day quitely at home, made homemade McMuffins this am, and a Prime Rib this evening with my Dad here. Wife and youngest daughter will enjoy a quiet Christmas tomorrow; our last before becoming Grandparents and Auntie respectively in June. This is also going to be the last Christmas where our daughter believes in Santa - almost 13 and we know she still was on board last year.  This year?s iffy, but she?s smart enough to carry on even if she is in on the secret!
