  1. I've got a generator (several actually) and a wood stove for heat with a large flat top that's great for cooking on. Several Milwaukee work lights, and enough batteries for a week of run time, and several oil lamps. If power is out more than a day I go over and wire the well to run off a generator for a couple hours, as it's a family well (4 houses on it) and has about 60-70 cows on it as well. Annoying part for me is I share a landline with my parents next door. When the power is out the phone will ring in my place, but not theirs. No working answering machine either. I got woken up before my alarm this morning by the phone ringing and ringing and ringing. It's never for me so I never answer it, but it did seem a little strange for it to ring that much. Then my cell phone rang and it was the school saying they would open late.
  2. Power went out at 5:20am, my son's school called at 6:45 to say there was a 2 hour delay due to the power, 6:55 power came back on. No idea why it was out yet, but the number of people on facebook acting like it's the end of the world because of 2 hours without power is always amusing.
  3. yup. You can also use range rentals as they never leave the range premises, and borrow them at the range as well as they are still within the owner's near possession. Last I heard since they instituted this law they charged a grand total of 1 person with violating it, and I think that was just tacked onto another charge. The problem for them is, if the gun was originally bought/sold before the law came into effect, they'd have to have some sort of proof that the transfer also didn't happen before the law, which is pretty difficult with no database recording all sales/transfers.
  4. coffee grounds everywhere, makes me think that the coffee filter had an issue or the outlet was partially blocked.
  5. a red dot is a lot faster to pick up than iron sights on a shotgun. I don't see it as overkill in the least as long as it matches your application, and I don't think a lot of people are going to buy this particular shotgun to go after clay pigeons.
  6. WASHINGTON'S MANDATORY BACKGROUND CHECK LAW. There are some exceptions to this law. Some transfers between non-licensed sellers and buyers are exempt from the background check requirement including: Bona fide gift transfers between spouses, domestic partners, parents, parents-in-law, children, siblings, siblings-in-law, grandparents, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, first cousins, aunts, and uncles; Transfers of antique firearms; Transfers to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm so long as the temporary transfer lasts only as long as immediately necessary to prevent such imminent death or great bodily harm. The transferee must not be prohibited from possessing a firearm under state or federal law. Transfers to certain law enforcement agencies or officers who are acting within the course and scope of their employment or official duties. A transfer to or from a federally licensed gunsmith who receives a firearm solely for the purpose of service or repair. Certain types of temporary transfers such as those between spouses or domestic partners or at a shooting range. Temporary transfers if: (1) the transfer is intended to prevent suicide or self-inflicted great bodily harm; (2) the transfer lasts only as long as reasonably necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm, and; (3) the firearm is not utilized by the transferee for any purpose for the duration of the temporary transfer.
  7. if you buy a firearm for someone else because they are paying you to do so, or giving you something in exchange, it is a straw purchase. If you buy it and give it to them for free it isn't. It's all about intent. If they can prove you bought it with the intent to resell it to someone ineligible, you're screwed. If they can't, you're okay.
  8. North Korea has one of the largest special forces in the world. They're trained to be able to fight off of a couple of rice balls a day, and not much else. The general idea for them is either advance and take out the enemy, then eat his food, or slowly starve to death. (I spent 3.5 years stationed in South Korea, so I'm a little more familiar about NK and their capabilities than most)
  9. I've seen it before, but yeah, it's amusing to watch.
  10. The chick is the one that was in a tv show 20 odd years ago and a commercial, but still tries to pretend she's important for some reason.
  11. I wish. 18" ground clearance on my truck, full time 4wd (no, not AWD, there is a difference), new condition 37" tires, some very heavy tire chains, and miscellaneous recovery gear. We had 1/2" that melted within a few hours, and 1 mile away on the highway there was none.
  12. I realize most likely this threat is coming from out of country, but I wonder what would happen if they sent this to an account that's for a minor's personal computer. The FBI takes kiddy porn pretty seriously so any threats to exploit a minor in such a situation (if it were anywhere near true) could lead to some serious federal involvement.
