Re: PNW Power Outages

I had a few more coworkers in the office today than typical since COVID hit. A few outlying rural areas are still getting fixed. My power flickered last night just enough to reset the oven clock. This one affected people a little south of me more than usual. Up where I'm at, we get 3 to 6 of these e...

Re: Most common ammo's in US?

The LGS nearest me is closing cause they can't get any inventory in. They have nothing but cases, organizing stuff, and a couple trade-in shotguns.

Re: Feels like it’s time to start stocking the caches...

Anyone considering selling some of their stores right now? Prices are unreal...I’m seriously thinking of cashing out a big chunk to build a detached garage with a small 1 bedroom guest house at our new place that’s nicer and on more land, but a lot smaller than our old house. I’d consider using it ...

Watch out for "inactivity fees" on a bank account you don't expect to use regularly. I used to work and travel in Europe every summer and thought it would be smart to keep a bank account at an international bank with easy access in all the European countries I had primary interest in. That was a mis...

Re: Firearms Chat: [2021 - Aw, FFS!]

I think I'd trust random reloads I found on the floor at a gun range more than I trust the media these days. As for the NRA, the big problem a lot of folks have with the organization all stems from Wayne LaPierre and his cronies basically using the NRA as their own personal spending account. Agree ...

For those who can't/won't connect with family tribe, there is always "tribe of choice." Results will likely vary, but that can be said of almost anything. I want to strongly emphasize this.

I am not a regular NPR listener anymore, because the last few years have had way too much political personality commentary content for my tastes, but on the topic of gun rights a listener should go in assuming they are attempting to mislead. Or they don't know enough to ask the right questions. I r...

Word I'm getting right now is that the woman who was shot has died and was only 17 years old. I have a feeling students will be learning her name in school a century from now. In the UK it's reported she was in the Air Force for 14 years. If they've ID'd the right person, she's well into adulthood....

Last week a got a hand-me-down Nikon 1.5 to 6 power scope with retical markings for 300BO (not sure what grain). I mounted it today on my 300BO carbine. I didn't get out to the range, but I really like the clarity of the scope.
