    I always thought if we could roll eastern CA into NV we could turn NV conservative again.....

    Cabelas new business opportunity

    Had I known that they had that sort thing in Cabela's I would have told her to get a real job. Not sure I will run into them again as I wont likely go back in. I was just surprised how far they have sunk.

    Cabelas new business opportunity

    After a quick trip up to north eastern CA to drop some stuff off I went through Reno and stopped at Cabelas to grab a few items. Simple stuff that I could grab and get back on the road to beat traffic at the "spaghetti bowl". 3 things... Boot laces ( in the shoe area), a can of water proofing...

    Go be poor somewhere else. Literally.

    I am not sure I am tracking with you. Based on your post you seem to be indicating that all businesses are there only for themselves and that is wrong in some fashion. Can you can give me some rationale or examples as to what specifically you find objectionable. If you are talking about working...

    Turning the tide from the insanity of today...

    Interesting commentary/rant from a fairly left leaning guy. A little long but good points. I started listening to Poole a while ago and his position on many issues has been maturing and moving right.

    Well shit...about to have to put #2 down.

    Nothing wrecks me more than putting one down. Agreed on not waiting too long. I have the vet come out to the ranch and do it there. Costs me more but I want the last thing one of the pups to see is my face in a safe and familiar place. Hang in there man.....it only hurts because you got so...

    Comin' off the sideline....

    It got too hot to move the cattle very much so I went to a buddies training barn to pull saddles and wash the 2 year olds. One of the assistant trainers says "damn......just got a text from a friend who said they are attacking people on the road and thats in Oklahoma. He says they attacked a...

    4 Minneapolis officers fired in death of black man after video shows officer pinning knee against his neck

    Thanks for the reply and I know there are good LEO's out there. Most of the ones I know are small (or smallish) town LE. Its a tough job and I honestly want to trust those entrusted to protect and serve. Unfortunately, my travels over the last decade make me leary of cops. As a side note...

    4 Minneapolis officers fired in death of black man after video shows officer pinning knee against his neck

    Question for current and former LEO's...... How many of you have a policy around the Duty to Intervene? Meaning, if you see one of your fellow LEO's acting against policy that you are to intervene in the moment AND report to management? Not trying to stir the pot. Just trying to understand.

    4 Minneapolis officers fired in death of black man after video shows officer pinning knee against his neck

    I am with you at a high level however I think what is happening here, as in other places, is more nuanced than your post would indicate. Look at the videos and the make up of the group when the looting is active. There are white people there and participating. And probably instigating. Living...

    4 Minneapolis officers fired in death of black man after video shows officer pinning knee against his neck

    Good balance that is useful for this conversation and the practicality of it is fair. The challenge I have is a departmental policy, written or unwritten, should not lead officers to make these sorts of field decisions. It should be an easy decision to step in where the law is broken. Just...

    4 Minneapolis officers fired in death of black man after video shows officer pinning knee against his neck

    Agreed on all your points. Clearly this is not a simple "one size fits all" problem and the solution will not be either. I respect the concept of law enforcement and know that without good cops our society really crumbles. From my perspective its difficult to fault line level LEO's for all the...

    4 Minneapolis officers fired in death of black man after video shows officer pinning knee against his neck

    I agree with you and it sucks. Most of the LE departments in my area are great. I even saw a LEO step in front of a Sargent to help manage a situation with female struggling with mental health issues. There are good cops out there for sure. With all due respect its not a matter if giving away...

    4 Minneapolis officers fired in death of black man after video shows officer pinning knee against his neck

    I cant track with you on this one simply because I think you are understating what drives bad LEO behavior. Agreed that finding good LEO candidates is tough. However, most people do what they are incented to do. If appointed/elected LEO leaders place a higher emphasis on situational "control"...

    Great. Thanks guys and it sounds like 10 is a good starting place. I am not welder........ I just TIG some super clean mild steel frequently. Just me sittin' there welding small parts. That doesn't make me a welder so thanks for your patience with my questions. All the information is helpful...

    Gunsmithing welding question

    Hey folks, I know this is not exactly a smith question but you always come through for me so I am going to ask.... I am not a welder however I TIG a lot. I want to weld up a bunch of oil pipe for some pasture fencing so I borrowed a engine driven welder to get started . When I went to my local...

    Snow Blower? need to get one

    if you don’t have room to push the snow with a atv or side by side then you have to throw it. If your snow tends to be wetter and you have to throw it a good distance then, like HighDesertHLR, I think a wheeled Honda is a good choice. But the better models are pricey. After years of dealing...
