Different states have different laws. Some places don’t allow you to hunt over a feeder or salt lick. I’m those cases some people plant food plots.

We can hunt over feeders although I’ve just been feeding them and not hunting them so far. I may shoot one this year.  I’m not in it for the trophy. Just the meat.

Misread, I thought that was the range.

Just have Shawn build what you want....I hear that hippie can weld.


And I loaded another 500 rounds of 5.56 between conference calls today.

Can’t wait for Trump to win and the panic to be over so I can get another 100k primers

Yesterday helped a buddy buck some downed trees. We piled them up and lit them up in three huge piles.  After I left he texted about 11pm that the FD showed up. Apparently deed restrictions say no burning at night and no burning anything over 6 inches in diameter.

Welcome to the neighborhood. Lol

This morning got up and had some Black Rifle Coffee Company coffee and then loaded up 1000 rounds of 5.56 for practice


I unloaded the tractor and filled the deer feeders with corn and then loaded three big sections of white oak logs into the trailer that I’m taking to the mill for some 4x10 x8ft boards that I plan to make a big farm table from.

Then I put some aquatic herbicide in the pond as the weeds have gotten a little thick.

Then hung a gutter on the outdoor kitchen before it started misting.

Now about to take the youngest to CVS for a COVID test. She’s been complaining of a sore throat and a fever so I guess we’ll see if she has the Wuhan China Virus

Ken I’ve only run avgas for a mix in my hot rods back in the day.

As mentioned you may have some tuning issues given the power density of the higher octane

However that website may not be a complete list. I would search for a farm fuel place near you. Most of the places I’ve bought pure fuel is at farm supply places. You may be able to schedule fuel deliver if you have a tank at the shop too.

Just make sure you store your spare parts in a sealed metal can/box if you want them to work after the “burst”. I’ll be riding around in my tractor I guess.

Don,  One thing I learned in 2008, is at least the US sucks less, which means that there is capital to be deployed and the safest place is the US, which means we’ll continue to see an influx of capital from around the world.

I thought about being in cash but several economists  have opined that even with a Biden win the market stays up since taxes going up is offset by the infrastructure spending that the government would be doing.

That’s short term.  Longer term getting out of the cities is my goal and gold is a good hedge against inflation as is certain real estate and other commodities. 

Vote like your kids future depends on it.

First thing I thought of too. Guns=food, although both is a great idea.
Oh. I didn’t say I had 100k. Didn’t say I didn’t either

Good job Matt!

As for ammo, I hear that once you cross the 100k round mark you are pretty much covered.....

For me it’s more about teaching the kids to load mags at this point...

Loaded 500 rounds between conference calls today. Went with a mild load for practice 25g of H335 under 55gn Sierra fmjbt w cannelure

No problem Dave,  Depends on what you want to do but the new Dillon 750 is a pretty sweet rig.  It replaced the 650 which is what I have.  For precision work I prefer the Forster Co-Ax single stage press

Don, that’s the small bin and it’s mixed Mil once fired.   I have a bin with about twice that which is all Lake City.

The mixed headstamps are going to be range rounds and I keep the Lake City for the shtf stuff I put away for a rainy day....

Nice to be so well prepared!
There are only so many rounds one may need, however there are things that become a very valuable barter commodity in a post apocalyptic world.  Ammo is one, food is another, amongst other things.

I am somewhat familiar with the 30 cal sabot rounds. Good way to get a small hard projectile traveling at really high speed. Alas. Not for civvy use.

And of all the small caliber weapons not available to civilians the gattling has to be my favorite. Feeding it would be a different story. An entire weekend of reloading up in smoke in less than a minute.

Washed the wife’s beater this morning with some help from the oldest who’s learning to drive in it.




That was after they arrived last night with the dash lit up like a Christmas tree. VSA check system light on. Cruise control not working. Brake lights stuck on.

Started Google fu investigating and found out that there was a disintegrated rubber stopper on the pedal assembly where it contacts the brake light switch. Once it fails the brake light switch won’t deactivate.

$8 at O’Reilly and contorting my fat arse under the dash for 20 minutes and it’s fixed.

Bobby it’s about 24 without the can and with the brace collapsed.

26-1/2 with the brace extended

The can is 9 inches. It’s a precision rifle can so I’m looking at a shorter fatter can that’s about 6 inches.


With the can and brace extended it’s about 34 inches.

Brace collapsed and the can is about 31-1/2

With a shorter can it would be 28-1/2 and 31 brace collapsed and extended

Thanks Bobby.  I’ll check the length in a bit. I just worked up some 220gn loads using Berger VLD and Accurate 1680. 11.3 wasn’t quite hot enough @ 1082 but 11.9 was a hair too hot @ 1118 .  Gonna split the difference at 11.6 and load 500 rounds

Dave, I do my best to follow scripture as my guide.  I did not spare the rod, however now that they are 14/17 it’s a different kind of punishment.

Also, always be consistent and never lie to them.  Actions have consequences. It’s always an if-then statement and the consequences are immediate and exactly as I told them.  Resist the “because I said so” and be willing to explain your decision making. It’s normal for kids to challenge authority but teach them how to do it. Respectfully through questioning and not through emotional outbursts. Find out what matters most to them as they get older and take that away from them as a punishment. For mine it’s been the phone or keeping them out of dance events.

I agree with Charles as well but still have to choose between those of the same party... make sure they're fully invested if possible.
The real magic happens in the primaries.  That’s when you can really influence the party and the race. Donating to a Democrat in the primary to help them defeat another Democrat that is a far left radical is also a good tactic.   So few people turn out in primaries that your vote counts as much as 4:1 sometimes

Today I took a bunch of clients to a ranch and we shot. I broke out the sniper rifle. Made a first round hit on steel at 600 and then let them pile on. Fun times
