  1. I talked to some Canadian truckers picking up loads in Port Newark. They all had those bumpers. They said hitting a deer ain't shit. Hitting a moose is another story!!!
  2. BTW, Goya has been headquartered in NJ since the 70s. They have created more jobs for Hispanics here, in Puerto Rico, and other countries than Sleepy Joe created his entire political career. Quality stuff. The only barley I can find!!!
  3. True, I have some ammo dumped in plastic zip locks of 100 rds each. I also include the end flap from the box with the lot number. I haven't tried it but I don't think you'd get more than the 1000 rds of 45 ACP in GI boxes in a 50 caliber can. Keeping it in factory boxes is neater and something you should consider if you might resell it.
  4. I can't agree with you. I've lived on MREs and C Rations for extended periods of time. I remember being in a situation with a younger guy at work. I carried some MRES in the car in case I was in a situation when I didn't get the chance to get anything to eat. I pulled out the MREs and proceeded to eat one cold. He said, "I can't eat that shit". My response? "You ain't hungry enough".
  5. Barracuda are the worst but you can get ciquatera poisoning from grouper, sea bass, or any reef fish. IIRC, the blend of herbs and spices was designed to neutralize the poison. Lots of citrus and HOT peppers. Don't know if that's true but I never saw anyone get sick.
  6. When I worked in Key West all the guys who had worked on the Canal Zone Police made a ceviche with barracuda. Tastes like crap usually but spiced up it was tasty.
  7. You could probably put Zeke's meat loaf in a time capsule. BTW I've eaten it and it's not bad. Zeke has license to put pineapple in meat loaf as he's lived in Hawaii.
  8. Trust me I know. I was a Fed. We didn't go out to enforce state laws. Sometimes some one would question our authority and fail the test.
  9. You are correct it doesn't have to be a "flag". Tie on a red tshirt.
  10. Red flag on the end of the kayak should cover you. I see guys who routinely have stuff hanging out more than 5 1/2 ft (contractors, plumbers, etc) hang that red flag out. They would know.
  11. IIRC, Title 39 (MV Statutes) say if the overhang is more than 3 feet you need a flag.
  12. Can't see why not. Hang a flag on the end of the kayak.
  13. Not nervous, at a heightened sense of awareness.
  14. What are you willing to pay for an as new Shockwave 12 ga? You can PM me.
  15. It's not MRE if you had to add water. 30 days? With 4 people that's a week. 2 people 2 weeks. If you can afford it and that will meet your needs go for it. 25 year guarantee? Will the supplier or the company that produced it be around in 25 years? When you crack it open in 8,9, or 10 years during a food shortage and find its gone bad do you think they'll send you a replacement when you're starving? I still think canned is a better option and more economical for most people. Most canned food I've seen recently has a 3 year shelf life.
  16. No, the USCG will operate where ever they are needed. During Vietnam they operated off the coast. You want the premier service for Search and Rescue, you call the Coast Guard. The USCG has operated worldwide wherever there is a mission for them for years. A friend of mine in the Coast Guatd spent some time off the west Coast of South America on a drug interdiction mission recently. Later he was assigned to a new cutter in Hawaii which patrolled most of the Pacific. 100% correct. They can also board foreign flag vessels in international waters with permission from that government. Some countries have given blanket permission to board any vessel flying their flag on mere suspicion of drug smuggling activity. USCG can also board stateless vessels (not flying a flag or displaying a home port) anywhere.
  17. I don't know where this came from. You can legally open carry in FL if you are engaged in fishing, hunting, or camping. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.floridatoday.com/amp/1639218001 If you're going into international waters firearms possession is dependent on the laws of the country the vessel is flagged in. You'll need to come to port sometime and then the laws of other countries and different states come into play. For example if you go from FL to the Bahamas you can have pistols and shotguns on your boat but you have to keep them locked up in port and you can't take them ashore. https://bs.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/boating-in-the-bahamas/
  18. A LE agency doesnt need a ssn to look for a dl.
  19. Long gun yes in NJ with a FPID. If you intend on going in other state's waters check their laws. Your non-NFA AR I'm not sure about. It is a "firearm". Check the statute. If the statute says "rifle or shotgun" I wouldn't in NJ. Also check other state statutes wherever you're going.
  20. Gyms and senior centers.
  21. @SW9racer he made you take it out of the water because it was an unregistered power boat with the little trolling motor. If you rowing, paddling or sailing it you'd have been okay.

    You've told that story before but still good to hear it. When Austin was on The Boulevard in Kenilworth I overheard a conversation. He had the price of a standard action job listed as $35. This was when a really good job paid $10,000 a year, you could buy a new car for under $3000, and a Model 27 S&W cost $185. Someone commented "that's a lot for an action job". Austin responded, "$5 for the labor and $30 for knowing how". He used that line often.

    @Cheflife15 I'll throw my 2 cents in regarding revolvers. I'm not as devoted to them as @Pizza Bob but still like them. I carry one for SD often. Most people are turned off by revolvers because the trigger is heavier that SA and striker fires semiautos. They're looking for instant success. Shooting a revolver DA is harder than most semiautos. You need to develop your finger and hand muscles to shoot a revolver well. Back in the old days I've found that people who spend a lot of time gripping something, a hammer or someone into martial arts, picked up a revolver quicker because their grip and finger muscles were developed. Roofers, before nailguns, had a really good grip. 40 hrs plus a week of swinging a hammer was how they developed it. Nonetheless, I've seen people who never fired a gun before be issued a brand new service revolver out of the box and in a week qualify expert. That included shooting out to 50 yards with a 2" 38 special. Many are intrigued with action jobs and light trigger pulls. There are 3 jobs those effect. Reliability, trigger pull, and function. A really light main spring will effect reliabity. A lighter trigger return spring effects function. When one gets more experience in revolvers you learn smooth is more important than light in a trigger. Renowned pistol erosion Jim Cirillo would say the best way to smooth out a trigger is to dry fire the revolver a 1000 times. Not only will you smooth out the trigger but you'll develop your hand and finger muscles. I see people brag about the action job they did resulting in a 4 1/2 pound trigger. Of course that's not reliable with all ammo. Austin Behlert, one of the most talented pistolsmiths of all time, used to do an 8 lb trigger that was reliable with all ammo. Maybe the guy who does the 4 1/2 lb trigger has learned a way to defy the laws of physics. A 4" 357 is about the most versatile handgun made. You can do just about anything with it. You can match the power level with a lit of semiauto calibers but you can't go lower than the semiauto will function. You can get an assortment of lower powered ammo for the 357 and that is a good place to learn how to shoot a DA revolver. If you learn to shoot a DA revolver well everything else is easy. Just my 2 cents.
