  1. Majority of citizens are also white males. It's a numbers game.
  2. There are some cheap options for a few hundred that you can get off amazon if you just want to look out in your yard. I have a buddy who bought a set of binos for $200 or so and they worked much better than I thought. I think the PVS14 is the standard for the [probably above] average Joe. They can be had depending on sales/refurb for $2-3k. I know a couple guys that night hunt coyotes and they swear by them.
  3. Have you also tried 6.5 CM? You'll have a lot of fun with 6.5 CM even at shorter distances. I couldn't believe how much harder it rang steel compared to 308 at 300 and 500 yards. A buddy of mine uses a loaded Savage 10 in 6.5 CM for deer and it knocks them flat. He hasn't had to track a deer in years. I already have a 308, but if I was buying a new bolt action it would definitely be in 6.5CM.
  4. I picked up a few things where shipping would normally kill the deal. http://damageindustriesllc.com/store/index.php?route=product/category&path=165
  5. I never understood why anyone would need to go to the store or buy a generator immediately before a hurricane after living down here all these years. I always have an untouched case of water purchased mid summer and a dozen cans of food minimum just sitting in the pantry. Generator purchased the first Black Friday I moved back. It's nothing special but enough to keep the fridge going. I filled a gas can this morning now that NC will get hit. I hope you all in Florida are prepared. They are getting hit at full power and a lot of home prep is required for hurricanes like this. Stay safe.
  6. Sucks that this happened. Know plenty of people with various issues with their new GM vehicles and they didn't have much luck from the company. Definitely try anyway, but I think it would help if a lot more people followed through with complaining to a consumer reporting agency. My dad bought nothing but GM vehicles his whole life before he finally gave in to the Toyota in 2008 and then a Honda a year after. Both cars still run great. Meanwhile my wife's Chevy that was also purchased in 2008 needed new struts at 70k miles. F that. good luck.
  7. Excellent excellent pistols, especially for the money. The Turkish issue is the only reason I don't own one but not sure I can hold off if I shoot one again.
  8. Trump asked the courts to stay out of this one. Have to imagine if NFA was overturned then Trump loses votes while the left would have something they would call a win. it's a short term loss for 2a with a long term game in mind. 4D chess.
  9. Yeah it's was too over the top on the dialogue. What would make boomtown post frontiersmen all talk like Tyrion Lannister?
  10. My parents had set me up with a UTMA at birth that did well. Since I was lucky enough to be in state at UNC-Chapel Hill and had free room, board, and food on top of the cheap tuition, the UTMA wasn't really needed. However, it was still important to transfer it to me while in college and not making much money so the capital gains wouldn't be taxed. Hopefully, you are on good enough terms with the kid that they will transfer the money back over a few years. As soon as the kid makes money, the capital gains are taxed at his/her regular rate.
  11. It's not a special case. I'm not talking about 1-2 cases. I know dozens of people who have done this. Another thing to consider is that it is often harder to get into a top school as a transfer than in regular admissions. The advice on getting a 2 year degree is actually very important as colleges look more favorably on those students as well. While you don't know how or how quickly your kid will mature, you know what your kid is now. Definitely base your decision on what your kid is and not what you hope will happen. I know guys who joined the army and then used the GI bill for school. They were glad they went this route because looking back they lacked the maturity to take advantage of school for what it is.. an investment. Make sure they make a good investment otherwise they'll end up voting on candidates solely for loan forgiveness.
  12. I know a lot of people who went this route and it worked out well for them. Most for just one year as even that makes a big difference at the schools in the northeast. There are some downsides though. I know one that was often complained about is that transfers get later class sign up times than others in their graduate year so they didn't get to take a lot of classes that they wanted and some missed out on minors they only needed a few more classes for (students with the listed major also get preference so it's a double blow for transfers).
  13. I started driving in the late 90s and it's a lot different today. Similar to some above, I drove all my parents cars of various condition. One of the things that stuck with me while driving was being constantly reminded that none of them were my cars and I was merely driving out of my parents' convenience. If i screwed up then that would be a bit more inconvenient for them than driving me where I needed to be. I paid for gas but parents' had me on their insurance. It was more expensive but not cost prohibitive like it is today. The idea was that it would keep me from having to work as many hours and therefore I had no excuse not to max out my grades. Everyone is different, but this worked out well for us. One of my cousins has just started the process and His parents were surprised by the extra rules (might be a good thing) and costs compared to another cousin who started driving 4 years ago. This is the same family surprised by changes just 4 years out. best bet would talk to a few of the parents of the friends of your teenage kids who just started driving.
  14. First confirmed prequel looks like it will be out next year. Already changed the name from long night to blood moon. Already a long running theory that the night king is a Stark bastard of Bael the Bard the wildling king and a Stark princess. I'm betting they build up a Jon Snow like character that we will love the next turn him bad like Daenarys's character arc.
