Gun Control / Re: Making up rules as they go, par for the course

I read about the lower case going away.

Think if you just say something is illegal and take away, owners should be compensated. They were bought legally.

You find the easy way and I'll listen!

It was the BCM as I posted in another thread. Used unit and a reprogram just over $200.

Used mine a few times now, Works great. Not really used to aircraft just sitting there with no input.

Don't like the SD card holder, but it works. Wish you could DL without removing it.

OK, so who can get auto paint (enamel or acrylic) matched to a part I have for the Burb?

Want single stage, just touching up some stuff before it gets the whole treatment (might be awhile)

I found some place in NV, but they want $90 a quart!

(yes this is a double post)

Went for a quick trip Sat to tear down the cheap HD shelve unit. Building custom but got there to late for that.

Cleaned up the road some and brought down my 5500watt gen to help with stuff. Brought the 2k Wen home. Brought up a husky work table the works great for the new HF Admiral 12in compound sliding miter saw ($169 on sale)

Then I played with the Anafi drone. Norm is right, one sweet drone. Took about 10 minute to really setup and I got some extra cables for it.

Did a couple overviews of the prop getting used to it. Even marked out the pad area on a screen shot. Stable as heck and when done, just hit the return to home!

To bad its closed. Funny they can't find a real home for it with all that history, just hard to move!

Sat by the Queen Mary for many years when I was down there.

Build looks great, like to see the setup for the axle and frame? (seal it good and put a trolling motor on the back)

HF had their rifle case on sale for $99, so I brought one home.

Ordered the last parts from Optics. Now just a week for the rifle and all parts will be here by then.

Guess I am on the list too, registered independent and retired LEO.


I go through the same time to time Don. The way they put my name on the DL vs how it reads is diff, so the game must be played. And now I have to get a new "real" Ca DL as they have given out so many DLs to illegals the fed will no longer honor my valid DL next year. Plan to just get it in NV and be done with it.

When I did the paperwork, they asked the same question several times (test) and I had to produce the CC I paid it with online so as not to be a "straw sale"

Damn Komifornia,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I would think about a liner above the wheels maybe running back a bit. Built great is good but getting hit with road junk all day on and off road will chisel anything away.

Since it is flat, how about a sheet of ABS contoured to wells and bottom, something like this; /-\___      Just an idea,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Nothing is solid on the house yet. Found out the pole barn place is not delivering to NV right now (darn Texans).

Trying to find a local company maybe in Id or Wa but like the homes seems all are back east.

The green dashes are big doors, 8x8 on the side by the house and 10x12 on the end for other things.

Was dealing with all the power issues this AM. Utility turned off power last night for supposed high winds today. Winds are blowing now, power came back on!

Yes, bigger is better. Drive through I thought of, but think the smaller roll up will work fine along with the big main door.

What do you think?

OK, so now with the plans back in and looking at "barns/workshops" I am trying to decide what size to go with. Remember my pad is 100x100 now and I want a house on it too. Sure I can massage that a little.

I have always wanted a 40x60, but do I really need that big? Would 30x50 work? You guys who have shops, what do you think or want? I have decided on 14ft walls for a 10x12 door. I want a lift in there in the long run. Also plan on awnings down both sides plus the container

Price diff is not all that much, little under $20 for a 30x55 and little north of $20 for the 40x60. That's no floor or awning but windows and doors. Here's a snapshot of what I have designed online. Place is out of Tx.

Well, the RPR came in today so I ran down a got the paperwork done. Almost an hour. At least they had some ammo for a decent price. SB 250gn for $30 a box (10rnds)

I have to wait until nest Friday to get it now. 10 days wait "cool off" so I don't do anything rash not counting others at home.

I do like Kilz for wood, but thinking long term it may be better on the outside. I use poly for wood that shows and it works well.

If you glass the outside I would not seal the wood, the resin will do that. If you use resin, go epoxy and not poly. Epoxy remains flexible and doesn't crack like poly does.

I would use a polyurethane based clear coat for the sealer. Will remain flexible and soak in really well and EASY to spray.

Just me, but I would gusset the 90* joints, glued and screwed or not. That's in theme with the plate on the but joints and would coast no room at all.

I would fiberglass coat the outside with a light cloth for the best finish and undercoating the bottom. Otherwise the wood grain will come through.

If I call it a barn and use for such (animal or hay storage) it can be called a barn and built without a dwelling. That I checked on.

Just priced out a poll barn (40x60) for just over $20k. Not bad. I can do the poll footings myself but if I have to do a full perimeter foundation I would farm out the cement work, but dig the footing for it.

Found my plans had not been resubmitted so that is getting done now, eeeerrrrr,,,,,,,,,,,

Watched some of the RR building stuff on youtube, guy is great!

To get me on the property faster I am thinking a barn/shop of some type. Awnings on both sides for trailer and such. Thinking 40x50/60 with a 12ft roof minimum.

Found a company selling metal buildings that have not been picked up or orders canceled. They are out of Co if nothing local is found.
