D.O.T. / Re: Favorite Magazine??? Why?
« on: September 30, 2018, 03:34:05 PM »
"American Handgunner"

Comes out every other month.

Worth twice the price.  Look for sales.

Why? 
Because it's BIG, great detailed pictures, superb writing, covers handguns (automatics and revolvers) but also lots of knives and cool gear as well.  Reloading advice and Masad Ayoob stories of gunfights that actually happened.  Something for everybody.  Love everything John Taffin writes!  He does new gun testing with excellent documentation of handloads/performance/accuracy etc.
Enough for now
Popular Mechanics is #2.

My son just cut his Nike's up and threw them in the garbage.  I asked him why he cut them up and he said "so nobody can ever wear them again".  Made me proud.  He was listening I guess.  One saved millenial.

That's because
1. He's young and stupid (we all were)
2. It hurts way more 4 hrs later
3. He felt he let the team down (he didn't)
4. Biggest problem with teens, as soon as it doesen't hurt too much, he's gonna think he can go out and be himself.  Unfortunately, that won't ever be true.  Over the head movement of the arm is extremely bad and could set him back quite a bit.  This is not the type of injury where you're all good in 8 weeks.  This is a forever thing that certain things are limited or just not possible without re-injury occurring.  Are they gonna drill the 2 bones and use the titanium dog bones with super strong Dr. string to pull it all back together?  That can't be done until all the swelling goes down.  I had that done.  I'll try to photo the X-Rays for him.  I'm sure he's curious.  I'm 90+ %.  Just cant do straight above the head stuff, like blocking a soccer ball.
I had grade 4 separation
He may not.  Grade 4 is really bad.  They only go to 5.

Well I have a new one. Last night my 16 year old son was warming up for his very first High School Varsity league soccer game and gets knocked to the ground. Spent a few hours in the emergency room with a broken collar bone. Will definitely need surgery. Bummer is he will miss the entire season in his Junior year and won't be available for college scouts. Will have to keep hitting the books for scholarships. Lol.

Tell your son, I know his pain.  Been there, done that, got the T-shirt.  Very disheartening initially. Also very painful.  Takes a year to heal.  DO NOT RUSH IT!  Do yhe excersizes in PT and he'll be laughing about this next year.

I'm a Chevy guy if you wanna go back to the 60's & 70's.  Still got a balanced, blueprinted 406 cu. in.  small block on an engine stand in my garage.  However,  Chevy offered me nothing for my trade in.  Zero.  Fomoco offered me $500. and Ole Dardge offered me $2,500.  What would you do?  I DID buy a 3/4 Ton.  That's gotta count for something.  That 392 puuuuullllllllls man.  Got the 4.10 rears.

We're being asked to leave.  Sorry, was just tryjng to introduce (prove) myself to some guys I don't know.  But, the humor section?  What, you think I'm funny?  How, like a clown?  Do I amuse you?  "Joe Pesci in Goodfella's, in case somebody didn't get it."

I think places like New York, NJ, Maryland, Connecticut, delaware and eastern PA is set up for a big fall. The socialist movement will accelerate the slide down the slope and that whole thing will implode at some point.
It's already happening.  Our new Democrt Gov. has already passed a law making our 15 round magazines illegal when it becomes law in about 2 months.  10 rounds max from now on.  That'll save lives.  Idiot.  Facts mean nothing to these people.  They are deranged.  He's a socialist at heart.  I can't leave soon enough.  Now this thread is really off track.

I truly believe Tennessee is gonna be my "correctly shaped hole".  Most people there are polite, respectful and helpful from what I've seen.  Not used to that.  I just hope all these fearmongers don't tear down every last Confederate monument before I get there.  I'm kind of a history buff, especially war related.  History is just that, history.   Omama changed all the wording and language in thousands of Gov't documents and childrens school books.  He didn't make history not happen, just harder to find out about it.  Thank God we now have the great Omama Eraser in the White House. Now, if I could just sell this house....anybody wanna move to NJ?

This is sure gettin' complicated fellas.  Tell you what, I'l watch, you play and when I think I know the players and the rules, I'll jump in, or ride my Harley in, whichever I can get hurt worse doin'. 

And just to be clear, I'm only a 3 wood and a 9 iron from 60 yrs old, born & raised in NJ all my life.  I just don't fit in much.  Conservative, Christian, White, Male that hunts defensless animals, ride a Harley, lost track of how many guns are in the safe and believe Hillary, Holder, Obama and a bunch more should have been shot long ago for committing treason.  And I pull the Red lever every election.  Out numbered is putting it mildly.  If I'm not what you're lookin' for just break it to me gently, 'cause my "safe space" is closed until the new drapes are installed.

No offence taken, from where I am sitting anyway, Don just took care of it and all is good. Here we believe "God is great, beer is good and people are crazy". Great bunch of people, great amount of knowledge, and all are willing to help.
If these are the "rules", I'm still in the right place.  Look fwd to submitting a couple more pics, just have to figure out how to photograph an X-Ray.

My apologies.  I'm new here.  Should have hung back and observed a while longer.  The only other forum I have participated in is the Dodge RAM one and that is far different than here.  Another reason to get out of NJ.  No offense was meant I can assure you.

Not if I got anything to do about it.  It's comin' brother.  Hopefully by then this house will be sold and I'll be in Tennessee with my wife.  Not so outnumbered there.

Just poking at ya bro.

It is a highly offensive descriptive phrase comprised of a slang for a part of the female anatomy that is used as a derogatory term for the recoil pad often used by people sensitive to recoil

Tex, my RedNeck friend, I gotta tell you.  That looong a$$ description of a P-Pad made the think of Slim Pickin's line in Blazing Saddles.  And I quote:  "Censored...Sorry!.  Ha!

Bikes & Motorcycles / Re: DR-650 Build Thread Part 1
« on: August 21, 2018, 12:55:14 AM »
My in-laws live on Douglas Lake (part of TVA). They just came out for a visit and stated a lot of people are moving in from up east, places such as NJ.


On a serious note, can Don's knees handle the adventure bikes any longer?
I can't wait to get out of this state.  It's becoming another California.  That, plus the fact the new Dem. Governor here is making most of my magazines illegal in a few months.

Thanks.  I just realized I answered a question from the absolute beginning of this thread.  And he had plastic tanks anyway.  I'm still going to TN!
Rambler, unfortunately Don sold both adventure bikes last week

Now he?s on to ?adventure heavy equipment?

JR,
And question for ya
I am about to acquire one of thise 6.6 gallon Aceribus (or however you spell that name) fuel tanks
They tell me you can't paint it or put decals on it, because it seeps fumes from all over!
WHHHAAAAT?
Anyway, that is just a challenge.
I am going to paint it and decal it up with the cammo wrap
So me is thinkin' out loud
I'm thinking I spray the outer surface with an adhesion promoter first, then a primer, then a coat of paint. Perhaps even run some sort of sealant all around the inside of the tank to prevent this pesky migration of fuel molecules.
Concerns: Interior lines stuff flakes off and clogs the petcock/filter and we have sudden stoppage. Secondly, my paint and wrap falls off the tank just when and while some Harley guys are ridiculing the "Pretty Little" Jap bike...Not as a Harley owner, that I have ever done that....just sayin...
Kreme the inside of the tank.  Did that on a 30 yr old honda tank.  Fill it w/ a couple handfulls of small hex nuts with the prep and shake it around vigorously to loosen any flaky stuff.  Apply Kreme liquid primer, coat entire insides.   Kreme treatment next, pour in and tilt tank to cover everything. Let dry. Gets hard like porceline.  No more rust, etc.  Used to use this back in the 70's.  It works great.

PS: I think I finally stumbled onto the right forum after reading about this bike/truck build.  Been telling people for years about having a 4 stroke woods bike, bonoculars,fuel, food, ammo, water filters and spare parts for what you can't make. ie files, primers, springs, eye glasses. 
Falls on deaf ears here (NJ).  I'll be in TN asap.  Wifes already there.

OK.  I'll start by sayin' this was NOT my fault.  Throttle stuck in 3rd gear, road curved & I didn't.  I just aimed for the most green spot I saw.  At least I missed the power pole. :)

Electrical tape works great until you're trying to get rid of all the glue left behind, with brake clean. Tends to have a slight burning sensation.

The jab thrown at you sir, our new friend, was for posting pics of bloody rags and not the source of the blood itself! Lol

...but since you played Superman off of a skyscraper deck, you're forgiven!
I thank you and didn't know the group was so small that I'd even be noticed.  Appreciate the welcome. 
Trying to load a few of when I stuffed my Harley thru a horse fence but they wont load.

Don't know what you guys think, but personally, I think a pic of a trash can full of rags stained with ketchup shouldn't count let alone make the boss queasy. :)

That "ketchup" came out of my right hand my friend.  Right up until I put the paper towel and electrical tape bandaid on.

And I thought those required pickets around a deck over 3 ft tall were to keep kids safe.
My deck.  Used to be a round pool there.  It froze & wall split & 20,000 gallons went down my driveway.  Took it down, leaving my booby trap.  Glasses were completely mist & fogged powerwashing and just stepped right off.  Gravity works.  Railing up now.  Kids are 29 & 25.

Power washing accident.  Took one too many steps, head first off a 5' high deck.  Landed on left shoulder & face.  Broken collar bone, grade 4 shoulder separation and fractured T2 vertabrae.  Dope.

Got bored in the RamTruckForum so, here I wander into a place with a Title that made me smile and go "Yeah, I got pics for this!"

Now, any time wifey hears me yell, she immediately says "Do we have to go to the hospital again?

Fun to follow soon...just a taste for now, Harleys bite.
