  1. I had 22mag barrel I bought along with 3 others at Gander Mountian for 50$ each. Sold it and the 30-30 barrels for a great profit. I have 8 frames and maybe 10 barrels now. Sold all my barrels that weren't 22 with exception of a 357 mag with irons and a 7mm TCU and 270 REN the buys never paid for. Still would like to sell them. Have several scopes and mounts also that never sold. Since GB changes polices and increased seller fees I've quit using them.

    .22 shorts

    Always wanted a rifle chambered for Shorts back when you could find Short ammo everywhere.
  3. I've seen a few. No desire to own one but they're hard to come by. I have a 572 I've used for the rifle in Rimfire Challenge Mechanical division. Won the World Shoot twice and several state level matches with it. It's the most natural pointing rifle I've ever had.
  4. Sometimes it's good to be compulsive. I could buy a new Duramax truck and take a nice vacation if i sold off my rimfire ammo or primers. I'm old enough now I'm thinking I may well have a life time supply.

    Buying guns?

    I'm not understanding how they know or code its a firearm or ammo purchase based on point of sale. I know a gas station/mini mart that sells guns and Bass Pro sells way more than guns and ammo.
  6. Found out long time ago that if you're going to do anything you need to gear up for it or you'll just get frustrated and pissed things don't go your way. Buy the tools or equipment you need to make life easier.
  7. I don't own shorts or a suit. I seldom if ever watch prime time TV or sports with exception of drag racing. I read a lot, I like classic literature and history. I don't live with my wife, we each have a house in different states. My daughter has a PhD my son doesn't. I've lived here nearly 2 years and outside of people at work I don't know anyone or talk to anyone.
  8. We have them in Alabama, call them Banana Spiders. Had them in Ohio when I was there and called them big spiders. From what I've read they eat a huge amount of insects. I leave them alone.

    Interview Today

    well that didn't go like I thought. had a drug test, working from home and 35 minutes from work and 90 minutes from interview. 2 hour window to do drug test or it's a fail. I was in car on time but was video interview and couldn't get cpnnected in my car sitting on side of road. I'd guess they're done with me which I under stand.
  10. I have some sort of video interview today for a job in Baton Rouge area. Friend of mine works for them at a site in Texas and ask for my resume because they couldn't find qualified candidates. Took a few days but recruiter called yesterday and set up interview for today. Interview is with 6 people and scheduled to last a hour. It'll get me around 13 hours closer to home and pay more. Only down side is I'd have to pay state income tax there. Pay will be more slightly and will get PD which will be significant. I bought a house here and am really happy with my living arrangement here and somewhat happy with the job but would like new job much more. Hate idea of packing, moving, and selling house.
  11. That's brilliant. I never considered that before. Do you ask or someone just randomly do it for you?
  12. Who ain't done that when they were at a nude beach.
  13. Shoot Steel Challenge match Saturday. I shot Iron Sight Revolver and Rimfire Piston Iron Sight with a revolver. Only me shooting ISR so it wasn't difficult to take 1st place. Had two Rimfire Pistol Open shooters finish within 4 seconds of me. If I had been using a bottom feeder I'd had 10 seconds on then and finished 2nd overall in rimfire instead of forth, but still first with irons.
  14. Make it legal everywhere. It'll make my life so much easier not having to find a gas station.
  15. If I have fouling I like Butch's Bore Shine other wise Hoppes I have some or just about everything made but that is my 2 go to cleaners.
  16. Never touched a Ruger. Don't boatload of S&W triggers.
  17. I bought a Rock River upper from RR at Camp Perry. Guy said it was their hot set up for High Power or CMP. It's no longer in their catalog. I've used it for CMP but I'm not good enough to know the difference, I'm just having fun.
  18. Thats great. I've never seen a javalina, I must not be west or south enough.

    New Device Login

    It's all good now. Thanks for the help
  20. I got a new laptop and can’t get login to work. Think I tried correct PW but nothing. Did the forgot PW but never got anything to reset.
  21. Got a new tablet and had to log in and it wouldn't take my password that I'm real sure was correct and if not one of the others I tried. Decided to reset password and never got email after multiple tries. Doesn't matter so much now since I'm on computer now.
  22. I need to count but I would be surprised if I have near 50 rimfires.
  23. Turns out I posted already and can't delete, sorry for the duplication. Sort of depends on application but I've got more rounds through this old Smith than all my others. I've also been fairly successful shooting it.
