  1. It deosn't even count the "thumbs downs". Just the "thumbs up". What a joke.
  2. Second this. And it's on sale! In the right place it will just look like a big digital clock. https://ads.midwayusa.com/product/1021895195?pid=108860&utm_medium=shopping&utm_source=bing&utm_campaign=Shooting+-+Gun+Safes+%26+Storage&utm_content=108860&cm_mmc=pf_ci_bing-_-Shooting+-+Gun+Safes+%26+Storage-_-Hornady-_-108860&msclkid=73c611f148fd1efcfe5c705136b3ea7e&utm_term=4585032213297734
  3. True. And probably bagels. But BBQ and Mexican food in Texas......OMG!!!! I'll take Texas BBQ and real Mexican food over pizza and bagels any day!!
  4. @Displaced Texan FIOS? I wish we had an option in my town but stuck with Optimum. We were is same boat. Had same cable company for 15 years. Every year price went up. I think we were around $225 five years ago when we cut the cord. Even with Hulu price increase we are probably saving $50 - $75 a month. With A LOT more programming now. Cut the cord people! You'll wish you had done it years ago!!
  5. Don't get hung up so much on the "smart" in the TV. Hopefully your TV will last for years and years and years. The tech inside it may become outdated rather quickly. To remedy this concentrate on finding a TV with the best picutre quality that you are comforatable purchasing price wise. You can buy external "smart" devices. Rokus, Firesticks, etc, etc. If their tech gets outdated, replace it or upgrade. A lot cheaper than buying an entirley new TV! What internet provider are you using? It sounds like Tex is steering you in the direction of streaming services (Hulu, YoutubeTV, FUBU, etc, etc). If that's the case all you want from the cable company is reliable internet servie. No tv. No phone. No "triple play". Think of the streaming services as replacing your cable TV service. You pick the service that best fits your viewing needs and wants. Many of them have free 7 or 30 day trials. Just remember to cancel if you don't like it otherwise you will be charged. And even if you do subscribe there is no "lock in". You can cancel every month and try a different service! We "cut the cord" almost five years ago now. Wish we had done it sooner. We use Hulu Live TV as our "cable tv" replacment. We also have Netflix and Disney+ (which we probably won't be renewing). We may be replacing Hulu TV in the near future as the price is going up again. In additioanl to your main streaming service you can purchase "a la carte" services which offer more specific programming. For example, around this time every year my wife activates a service that includes "The Hallmark Channel" and she binges holiday shows. After the holidays, we cancel it. There are also A LOT of free streaming services but they will mostly be older re-runs. Check out Crackle, Pluto, Tubi, etc. There's even one that allows you to "rent" movies from your local library! You just need to have an activie library card. Think of all the different streaming service as "apps". You download the ones you want and don't bother with the others. Here's a fairly recently article with a nice grid style layout comparing what channels the major streaming service provide. https://cordcutting.com/compare/live-tv-streaming-service-channels/ Have any questions feel free to ask.

    Lever guns

    Don't know how soon you want to pick one up but Ruger purchased Marlin. The first Ruger produced Marlins are due to hit the shelves next month I believe. They will be chambered in 45-70 and 30/30 initially. They say they will be making a .357 chambering. "After the 1895SBL rolls out, Killoy said the next gun to return to the Marlin catalog will likely be the Model 336, a people's champ in .30-30, and, later, the Model 1894 in .357 and .44 Magnum. Also fleshing out the Model 1895 will be rifles chambered in .444 Marlin." I have an older (late 70s produced) Marlin 336 chambered in 30/30 and really enjoy it. I'm NOT enjoying the scarcity of 30/30 ammo or the price IF you can find. Hopefully return to normal prices some time soon. https://www.guns.com/news/2021/10/22/ruger-shows-off-its-1st-marlin-rifle
  7. Was out mowing and it rolled in quickly. I did as much as I could but once the ligtning started I was done. It stated raining pretty good shortly after I but mower away and went inside. Very windy for a while as well. No hail. I thought today was supposed to be a nice day! Oh well.
  8. That's a nice view from the porch. Even without the deer.
  9. When is the first NJGUNFORUMS Texas hunt? Next fall?
  10. You must new new here....Oh, fourteen posts. NVM. You ARE new here. Lol. I'm hoping NY law gets shot down. I thought NJ's "justifiable need" scheme would have been challenged years ago after DC's "good cause" scheme fell It is my understanding that DC's "good cause" scheme was based on NJ's "justifiable need" scheme. Yet here we are. If NY law gets overturned, which I REALLY hope it does, then NJ will go kicking and screaming and initially saw they are complying but won't. They'll make it as difficult as possible. No carry within 500 yards of a school, government office, post office, court house, etc, etc,etc. Which means in more densely populated areas you won't be able to carry. Hope I'm wrong, we win and NJ falls in line with other free states.
  11. What are the requirements for the PCC? Tactial okay or want something more non-tactical? If tactial is okay, a shorter barreled AR chambered in 9mm?
  12. Nice! Congrats! I know you won't be worrying for a while about the rising price of meat! Let's Go Brandon!!!
  13. If it's a real gun capable of firing live ammunition then treat it as a loaded gun. If you are an actor using a real gun as a "prop? then you should treat it as a real gun and you, as the lastt person to hold it and the only person pulling the trigger, bear some responsibility in checking that it safe to use as "prop" and it's okay to point it at someone and pull the trigger. Unless it's very obvious it's not a real gun then treat it like a real gun. More than likely most of the extras on movies with LOTS of guns (John Wick, Saving Private Ryan, etc) aren't using real firearms. Probably just the main characters and probably just for certain scenes. More and more movies use CGI to simulate muzzle flash and smoke. Look at some of the "Expendable" movies. If you slow it down it's obvious it's fake. Not sure why all movies aren't doing this? IMHO anyone actor handling live guns as props should seriously consider taking a firearm safety class. It should also be stressed to them that while a prop and while others have checked the weapon that they bear some responsibility in the safe operation of the firearm. I would have to search Google but it would be interested to see if there similiar accidents when westerns were big. I wonder if the culture then compared to now effected who actors handled guns. Back in the 40s and 50s gun laws were much more relaxed and people seemed to have more of a sense of personal responsibilty. I doubt there were many "antigun" people back then. Back then perhaps they had more personal experience handling firearms and more of a respect for them. Rather than now where "it's just a prop" and "it's someone else's responsibilty to make sure it's safe".
  14. I'm not celebrating. I actually feel bad for him despite the disdain I have for most of his political stances. He's still a human being who was directly involved in something horrific which lead to someone losing their life. It has to be horrible gut wrenching experience. It can still be a learning point. The point being even if you are vehemently anti-gun, you should still take some responsibilty for knowing how to safely operate the tool you are being handed. EVEN if you hate that tool. It's ultimately your finger on the trigger. As far as the race car analogy. The driver isn't intentionally directing the race car at people. They are out of harms way. And I'm pretty sure prior to a race the driver looks the car over. Checks the tires. Makes sure the steering wheel feels right. Checks for any obvious problems BEFORE they jump into the car and drive it. I'm sure they are so not only for their own safety but also the other drivers safety, the pit crews safety, the fans safety, etc. I highly doubt on race day that they simply show up, jump in the drivers seat and go. The difference between an actor like Alec Baldwin and Keanu Reeves is Keanu took the time to learn about firearms. Could a similiar tragedy happen to someone like Keanu? Possibly. But at least he would have taken steps to try to mitigate that happening. Let's hope he, and no other actors, never have to find out. Maybe if more actors took a firearm safety course it would help reduce accidents like this?
  15. The actor is the one holding the firearm, pointing it and pulling trigger. I don't care if Jerry Miculek is the prop master. If anyone hands me a firearm then I'm checking it. PERIOD. Learn how to properly handle a firearm if a good part of your living comes from pretending you are shooting firearms.
  16. If he knew ANYTHING or had ANY training at all about firearm safety he would have tripled checked the "prop gun" before pointing it at anyone. But his mentality is probably ""It's not a real gun" and/or "It's somebody else's job to check it". How long would it have taken? Thirty seconds to check it? But he probably never took the time to learn. This isn't the first time something like this has happened (The Crow). Simply taking a firearm safety course could help avoid something like this. Yes, it's a horrible but EASILY avoidable accident which we can and should use as an educational and teaching point. You can be anti-gun but still be sensible and responsible when handling firearms. ESPECIALLY if it's part of your job to frequently handle firearms.
  17. Pretty soon NJ will list "a barrel" as being a resticted feature! LET'S GO BRADON!!
  18. The reaction button really needs an angry face emoji. At the very least. Jus' sayin'.
  19. For those of you who haven't, start stocking up NOW. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/people-hoarding-food-shortages-next-120000053.html
  20. Project gun. Old guns with good personal history that aren't too expensive to fix is a no brainer. Have fun!
  21. Used to see Glock commercials few years ago. Probably on Fox as well. Link to commercial?
  22. The days of cheap primers (or anything) probably won't be back any time soon. With supply line issues, transportation bottlenecks and labor shortages forecast until at least next year $70 per 1k fir primers could be the "new normal" for a while. And that's cheap compared to $100 with hazmat and shipping if you order online. I hope I'm wrong and things turn around sooner rather than later.
