Re: Halfapint's Getting Some Land

it Sucks only getting 1, maybe 2 days off. Spend today up doing some projects. Had a friend up who helped clean a lot of things (didn’t get pics due it pouring down rain. But we cleaned a lot of the stuff around the house. Cleared tons of ivy, lots of creeping ground cover, and lots of debis. Drivin...

Not to mention $200 a bbl oil would wreak havoc on western economies.
That isn't good for anyone. :(


Westerners have thee and to absorb the costs (suck it up), China, India, central and South America do not. They would be decimated. Riots would not be pretty.

You'd think there would be some repercussions if the movie was so badly butchered from the book. Guess I'll be skipping this one.

Great update! Digging this story. 91 caught what I was seeing. Only other editing I might do would be better transitions. You talk about him following the tracks to the inn, and the next is he's here. It's rather abrupt and with no transition of how far he walked, the lay out of the inn, just he's t...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

My backyard range is a little over 300 yards. The property is 155 acres, but its rolling land, so there aren't many flat stretches of ground. There's a flat spot where you can shoot out to 500 yards along a powerline ROW on the west side property line, but I only shoot there on rare occasions. Drea...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Your shooting pit sounds a lot like the old gravel pit near my cousins place. I can go shoot there any time so long as I give my cousin a heads up. It's a little limited on range, but it's good enough for pistols and shotguns. Rifles are bit different, but it's not like I'm doing any precision shoo...

Haven't taken my 300bo out in ages, and had some old stock I wanted to rotate out. I forgot how much that thing hurts to shoot supers out of. I've got the KAK brace on it and it is in no way a gun you want to shoot 10+ mags through in one sitting. I'm no bruised but my shoulder meat is not happy wit...

They were all over the place with the COL (still within specs and I under charged them so they weren't over pressured or compac...

Re: On you at all times BOB? What do you keep on you?

What you're thinking of is EDC (Every Day Carry). I used to work at a major airport and I carried a "TSA" approved EDC BOB. this was something I could carry through TSA that had everything I needed to get me home or even a bad winter storm where I couldn't get out for a couple days.

Re: Noob 1st bag question: big new or supplement?

I wish I read this before your bag post. A 75l is a big bag but pretty damn good, depending on what/where you are hiking to 2-4 days is ideal. If you work at home, and live where you work I don’t see why you’d want to have a big bag to keep in your car. Maybe keep some cheap stuff in your car. A HF ...
