  1. One tool you never want to have to use. My Camaro has one. It’s for track use. If you F up on the track it makes hauling you out of everyone’s way easier. So far I’ve never needed it, though I know Camaro owners who like to drive around with them installed. Kind of like the Mopar owners who leave their yellow splitter protectors on.
  2. It's sad, but some bands are just dead, and it's a shame to continue using the name. Pink Floyd died when Roger Waters left. Don't believe me, listen to their last two albums without him. Yeah they were, and some still are, great musicians, but the Pink vibe was gone. Led Zeppelin, dead. I like the way they handled Bonham's death. They hung it up because they didn't think they could be true to what they had established. The Who, dead. The opposite of Zepp. Half the band dead and yet they're still 'The Who'? The Beatles, dead. Tons of ink spilled on that one.
  3. John Lennon's son is around and so is George Harrison's. That doesn't mean we can see a Beatles reunion.
  4. So they call themselves Lynyrd Skynyrd because one member of the band went to a real Skynyrd concert once? One original member left? Lynryrd Skynyrd died 50 years ago. This band isn’t Lynyrd Skynyrd.
  5. I used to deliberately start fights as soon as I showed up at a new school so I could get suspended and stay home.
  6. I have a single shot 12 gauge and a single shot 410. I haven’t used either one in years.
  7. Apologies to the Bard. Friends, Americans, Patriots, lend me your ears; I come to praise Trump, not to condemn him. The good that men do lives after them; The evil is oft interred with their bones; So let it be with Trump. The noble Cheney Hath told you Trump was ambitious: If it were so, it was a grievous fault, And grievously hath Trump answer’d it. Here, under leave of Cheney and the J6– For Cheney is an honorable person; So are they all, all honorable people– Come I to speak for Trump’s candidacy. He was my candidate, faithful and just to his promises: But Cheney says he was ambitious; And Cheney is an honorable person. He hath brought much prosperity home to America Her coffers filled and pride restored: Did this in Trump seem ambitious? When that the poor have cried, Trump hath acted: Ambition should be made of sterner stuff: Yet Cheney says he was ambitious; And Cheney is an honorable person. You all did see that on January 6 he said: “Peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard” Which he did twice repeat: was this ambition? Yet Cheney says he was ambitious; And, sure, they are an honorable person. I speak not to disprove what Cheney spoke, But here I am to speak what I do know. You all did elect him once, not without cause: What cause withholds you then, elect him again? O judgment! thou art fled to gullible fools, And men have lost their reason. Bear with me; My vote is in the ballot box there with Trump, And I must pause till it restore US.
  8. A little known fact, in Cherokee, penis means ‘brain.’
  9. When I look at that twit Brandon the Antifa sissys living in their parents' basements and the snowflakes with their play-dough and safe spaces in college I find it hard to take the threat of a civil war very seriously.
  10. Is everyone enjoying the latest gambit by Team Brandon? I've never had a high opinion of Brandon's intelligence, but I did think that whoever is pulling his strings would at least have an IQ above room temperature. The raid on his house gives me pause for thought though. Did they really think that this would push some who were in the undecided camp away from Trump? I'm going to write emails to my representative and whoever is running against him and ask that they zero out the DOJ, DHS, and DOE's budgets for 2023. They'll also need to pass legislation forbidding the use of seized funds by any government agencies. Obviously there will not be enough votes in the Senate to override a filibuster, so our representatives should shut the government down until we get answers and accountability starting with Garland and Wray's jobs.
  11. The problem I have with that position is that we're allowing the media/dems to dictate who our candidate can be. If we allow that, the next step will be to go after DeSantis and try to make him unelectable, which they're already doing.
  12. Maybe DC and NYC should call in Antifa?
  13. Black powder is hygroscopic (absorbs water from the air) so that’s a potential problem. You have to lube the bullets, so that’s an issue. It fouls the works up and you can’t use a petroleum based lube, so there’s another potential problem. And of course the caps can break and get jammed in the action. Having said that, mine have been worked over by a very competent gunsmith, I am pretty meticulous in my prep, so I’ve never had a ftf other than my first outing.
  14. He was definitely known for practicing way more than most. Wouldn’t surprise me. It does.
  15. After the 2020 (s)election of Brandon as our Cadaver in Chief, I was tired of the mean tweets and constant turmoil. I was inclined to favor new blood and DeSantis looked like a great candidate (still does). Over the ensuing weeks and months, as the spittle flecked Dems impeached, investigated and inveighed against Trump, while slandering DeSantis every chance they could I realized, I really, really want to see Trump back in office. I really, really want to give a great big middle finger to the half of the country that wants to deny me my candidate of choice. The more the Dems try to deny me that option the more determined I become to vote for him a third time. Here’s hoping for a Trump/DeSantis ticket in 2024!
  16. Now it means join the train after work.
  17. Yep! Replicas of guns that were never made. Colt 1851 Navies…in .44. Those paper cartridges are fun to make, but painstaking work. Gives me a feel for the care cowboys must have used to keep their guns up and running.
  18. Of course when I’m shooting 44 I generally only use one hand for each revolver, and make a teeny bit more smoke than most.
  19. I do have a couple of revolvers in .44, but not magnum.
  20. I have a shooting buddy who is also an instructor. He starts classes with a single shot on a relatively small gong at 50 yards, with a S&W J frame 2.5 inch barrel. From my perspective, if I can see it, I can hit it. I don't care how long the barrel is. OTH, if it's so far away that my sights cover up the target, then no matter the barrel length it ain't happening. Having said that, big bore revolvers have pretty limited utility for me. There's no thick skinned predators around here, only thin skinned ones who walk on two legs. What advantage is there to counterbalance the increased recoil and muzzle flip? Not to mention limited ammo and slower reloading? Not knocking revolvers, my wife carries a S&W J frame herself, but there are very good reasons why for her a revolver is a better choice. What are yours?
  21. Yep. That's one reason getting solar and a couple of Tesla Power Walls is on my list of things to do.
