    Timney Trigger Install

    Tried all my old tricks... Similar to the white gas and blow out, even some marvel Mystery oil.. Final oiling was with Lucas gun oil... It feels more like machine marks as I move it back and forth. Put the old Remington trigger back on it and it was smooth as glass. I'm just going to run it for...

    Timney Trigger Install

    I've been a fan of Timney Triggers for many years. They have all been smooth. Installed one today on a Remington 700 and the safety ( on / off) movement was gritty. Tried it first dry, straight out of the box. Action was not mounted in a stock. Started lubing it and that helped but never got the...

    Jacket choice?

    Couple of things. We tied a string around our dick so we could find it under all those clothes and pull it out. Bad to have pissed on Carharts around the other guys.... I am a retired welder. I have had on so many clothes I could not bear hug a 24" pipe to make a weld. Having on a vest let me...

    UN Food Systems Summit

    Long ago "we" told people to stock up on ammo, "we" told them to stock up on paper products and Clorox wipes, "we" told them to stock up on re-loading supplies..... Now "we" are telling them to stock up on food and learn how to grow a garden, butcher a hog or raise chickens... "They" are still...

    Jacket choice?

    Implement a vest into your gear.... Allow your arms to snuggle into your weapon. Mittens for shooting or doing small item task. Defog treat your glasses, bino's and optics. At times too much clothing is worse than not enough clothing.

    Question for the "Old Guy's"

    Wind / scent is a concern. Especially if trying to coordinate wind with sun.

    Question for the "Old Guy's"

    When I say old, I mean wearing eye glasses, not a limber as you used to be and more effected by hot and cold. If you had a choice to "take the shot" (one shot) at the first light of the day... or .... The last light of the day. Which would you choose ?

    Price Gouging

    That is what I call supply "Sprinkling".... No rhyme or reason why one dealer has items and another has empty shelves... Seeing the same thing with certain models of chain saws, weed eaters and replacement parts. A false sense of security if being built.

    Are you TOO prepared?

    Found a bunch titled "The Ranch"... None by Forstchen

    Are you TOO prepared?

    I enjoyed One Second After... I'm looking for a similar book featuring a "Bounty Hunter" in that scenario ... Seems all of similar stories have a group similar to a Sheriff's Posse going after the bad guys. A character like Dog the Bounty Hunter, Walker Texas Ranger or Matthew Quigley.

    Price Gouging

    I agree.... Now, roll that logic over to "FOOD" and see where that leaves us

    Price Gouging

    Every month spend a fixed amount on ammo (or any of the other things you consume). Store the commodity away. Here is what that strategy is called: Dollar-cost averaging is a simple technique that entails investing a fixed amount of money in the same fund or stock at regular intervals over a...
