  1. Usually there is no wait for bench, but if there is, you just have to hang until whomever is occupying a lane is done. Use some common sense for targets, don't bring empty whisky bottles unless they are plastic. You will need some kind of target stand. PVC and 2x4 constructed stands are popular, but I use 5' wood stakes and staple coroplast signs (road side advertising and political signs) to them and stick self adhesive splatter targets to them. Whatever targets you use, clean up after yourself.
  2. We are keeping our cats well fed, just in case we need to eat them. This is very true. I've been reading lots of stuff and I'm a landscaper so I'm already quite fit, I'd say above average for a man my age. I've also worked out a plan with neighbors. Growing gardens, communications, inventory of everyone's skills like first aid, etc., very basic stuff. This shit needs to be thought out, and worked out ahead of time. Our neighborhood watch is a motley crew, but we all have each others back. Nobody here is looking forward to any events, but we are ready (more or less) to deal with whatever may come.
  3. Only the NJ govt could find a way to cut costs and eliminate jobs by putting billing on line and then turn around and charge citizens an extra fee for THEM saving money.
  4. This FPID and P2P is racist bullshit. How are poor blacks and hispanics supposed to exercise their 2A rights. We need to do away with all fees... actually, we need to do away with the FPID entirely. It's racist I tells ya! No voter ID, No FPID either.
  5. That's a sturdy looking stock. Is that a built in QD stud.
  6. Looking for #8 or #7.5 magnum or chilled lead shot. Because of the weight, in-person within 45 minutes of 07724 (Exit 105 GSP) is preferred. I'm also interested in picking up the following for 12GA. Stand alone high brass resizer 1oz to 1 1/8th oz wad-cups Roll crimper Over shot cards Felt or cork wads 00 or 2 buck Buffer media
  7. Would you be willing to negotiate a 1:1 value instead of a 2:5 ratio? A completely legitimate question regarding this offer.
  8. And.... It's rim fire, can't be reloaded.
  9. 204 Ruger, 218 Bee or 219 Zipper will fill the gap. The guns are cheap compared to ammo price, and I'm not talking WuFlu/blamtifa riots/Xiden prices. That shit was always expensive. Kinda like buying a reasonably priced printer but the ink costs half the price of the printer itself.
  10. The Buckmark logo can be seen on the rear windows of about half the pickup trucks in America. You have seen that logo many times, but probably never registered because you don't own a Browning.... Commie.
  11. Y'all can be used when addressing a specific individual, or a group. An example of the singular. A Texas trooper pulls you over and you are alone in the car "How y'all doing today, sir. Drivers license and registration please." When greeting a group of friends or strangers, "Howdy y'all" is fairly common. Hank Hill addresses a specific group of strangers. All y'all is for specified or identified groups only, and is often used in relation to an action. For example. "I'm gonna fuck all y'all"
  12. I really wish I could be there after you return to Texas and are chewing the fat with your old pals, and whoops... A little bit of Jerz slips out. They may even tar and feather you.
  13. Boy howdy, ya got me there Tex. Bless your heart, Ya caught me wearing my ten gallon hat n' herding three cats. Must be all the time I spend on the Marlin forum. Those fellas are a bad influence.
  14. That can be tweaked with any one or a combination of powder charge, payload and even a wad-cup can influence pressure. So, yeah, you can increase pressure many ways. Just don't do them without knowing you are doing them.
  15. More or less. You can adjust the amount of shot, powder, wad and primer in many useful ways, but it does not increase accuracy per se, it's more like tailoring a shell to your particular shooting style. Kinda like having your own bowling ball. The Lee loader will get you whatever custom loads you want, but you have to develop them. Honestly, I'm not a good enough trap shooter that custom loads would make much of a difference for me. I just stick with replicating loads I like, such as Rem Gun Club or Fed Top Gun.
  16. Hard to tell without seeing the driveway, but even 15 seems like a lot.. You have to poke around to see where it's thin and where you have too much already. You should rake down built up areas before you drop any stone. Better off going through a wall. Every hole on a roof invites leaks.
  17. 20 does seem like a lot, especially for a top dressing. If they drop 20 yards, and it's too much, you will have a serious problem. It's far easier to put down more than it is to scoop back up.
  18. Lame. No windshield washer booze dispenser in the glove compartment. Now THAT was a party trick.
  19. Well. This sucks. For over a decade, Gene has been my go to guy for shooting supplies and runs a great trap club.
  20. The WMA is the natural habitat of the Fudd. In fact, it exists for the Fudd. I'm jus say'n. I can see issues down the line when folks are getting smacked in the face with hot brass. I am happy to police the spent brass there, so the more people leave behind, the better.
  21. IMO, there are too many benches. They are too close to each other and with all the asshats bringing their "deer hunting" AKs to the range doing double and triple tap "hunting" drills, well, in that cramped space, there's going to be problems. It is MUCH nicer that we can drive up to the benches and trap field now.
