    Ruger Mini-14

    A few nails almost took down an entire kingdom.
  2. They are of the same ilk as the "South shall rise again" crowd. Living in the past. In fact, I'm pretty sure calling it Taylor Ham is racist.
  3. Except they can't get a FPID. All they can do is buy a black market gun, get caught using it in a crime and have the gun charges dismissed to help the Demoncrat overlords with their crime statistics.
  4. You will have to go through the entire application process all over again. It's not like a DL where they slap a sticker with updated address. It will be like you never had a FPID at all after you move.

    check/clean gas system.
  6. Speaking from a practical K.I.S.S standpoint, the basic 3M plugs they sell at home depot are the best in my opinion. Plenty of protection while still being able to carry on a conversation. If you get the 3M plugs plugs, don't forget to lick 'em before you stick 'em. If shooting something really loud, double up with ear muffs.
  7. Yes. Prone, sitting, kneeling, off hand are all allowed. If you are shooting prone, bring a mat. If you don't have one, do not steal your wife's yoga mat. She'll be super mad.
  8. I haven't been to shore shot in ages, but I can tell you two things. They had an excellent selection of rentals and their prices were highish.
  9. New or used, nobody buys a car without road testing it. It's one thing for a car to have comfortable seats. How it handles can only be learned on the road.
  10. Has R14 been overrun with Afghans or is it still open? I heard from a retired USAF Lt Col that Dix is a shit show right now.
  11. It certainly is a bogus argument, and you are are only proving my point. Based on the advice of the cop, it's only dangerous because a cop could confuse it with an actual firearm. If cops are blowing away people because they are shooting airsoft or bb guns in their back yards, we have a problem. Since I'm not reading article after article of cops slaying airsoft wielding homeowners, I guess cops can tell the difference. Yes, there have been a couple instances where someone with a pellet gun got themselves popped, but they were playing stupid games and won a stupid prize, the grand prize of stupid.
  12. When I was a kid, we shot an air pistol in the back yard all the time. Not once did a cop ever show up. If one did, they'd have known us and we them. There were like five cops in my town and we all knew each other. We also knew all of our neighbors. Would the Brick PD have a problem with differentiating between an airsoft gun and a real gun. That's a bogus argument. Oh, but it's dangerous. How about backyard archery? It's stupid one can practice with a very deadly compound or cross bow, far more lethal than a pellet gun, yet, there is this prohibition on having fun with a mother fuck'n daisy red rider bb gun.
  13. That was giant raindrops falling to Earth at a 91 degree angle. We did not get nearly the amount of damage I thought we would, nothing like what you got up by you. There was relatively little to clean up in the 22 lawns I cut today. A few big limbs on a couple of properties was about it. I saw some large limbs down on other properties, but not trees down. If you heard a freight train in your back yard, that was probably a MB. When we had a MB here in 2002 (I think), it was frightening, like nothing I'd ever heard or seen. I took my 5 yo son to the basement. The duration was maybe 10 minutes.
  14. We were hit pretty hard too. I thought it was another micro-burst (mini tornado). All was quiet, then I hear a racket on my roof. At first I thought it was hail, but was black walnuts blown onto roof from a tree fifteen feet away. Rain was actually going sideways. Very surprised we didn't lose power
  15. No 3 pt hitch. Deal breaker.
  16. I have four sheepdogs, a wolf and three sheep for neighbors.
  17. In this instance, I guess, Janis Joplin was right. Freedom is just another word for nothing left to loose. It is the fear of loosing what few good things we have that ties us to the bad things that hold us down. It took courage to move away for the sake of your principles. In this day and age, where money tops all, we live in a nation of mostly unprincipled people. Always remember that freedom is not free, there is always some cost, financial, social, etc.. associated with it.
  18. That's what I have on the truck now. I've never got stuck with them, and they are very quiet for a truck tire, but they did not impress me last winter. Also, they don't seem to grab dry road all that well, I will burn rubber every time I step on it to pull out on to a busy road.
  19. Do you know which ones? There seems to be a half dozen different grabber models ranging from knobby to highway treads.
  20. Can anyone recommend a mud and snow rated truck tire that has a good balance between performance and road noise.
