  1. Been in the hospital 2 more times due to a drug reaction, the secondt time I thought I was going to die, the pain in my chest was so great. Turned out to be the beta blocker and since they have taken me off of it I feel like my old self. In fact I finished all the back logged paper work for my past job and have one more thing to do. I have to go to a forum in Orlando next month for 2 full days of meetings , I really do not have to do it but I want to. The person who has taken over for me is doing a great job and I only get texts about people who would like to call an wish me well. Now that I have the green light to get active I will be starting a morning workout next week to get me back up to speed. As I have posted on another topic I have been taking in some gun work for friends. Was able to go to the gun range and shot my Glock for awhile felt good. The wife and I are talking about the once dreaded honey do's and I am looking forward to it. The last two weeks has been the best I have felt body and mind for a long time. I think this is going to be great. Just got a new recording studio computer replacing the old one and will be working with that as I have played for over 50 years. Today the wife and I will be getting new eye glasses . She is so happy just to have me around all the time as compared to never home. Just want to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes.. Life is good
  2. I think you know what I mean. They break them we fix them.
  3. This can be true for some but going to a good school can give novice a better perspective and teach them that the only thing that ruins a gun is a Dremel. I have fixed guns since I was 12 years old but understanding how each gun works and what you can do with them has always involved study and the right tools and how to use them. I still remember threading my first barrel I was a wreck but after it was over, then you think to yourself " that was it ?" that was years ago. Only Botched 2 jobs in my life a AR trigger because I was in a hurry and a cold blue job (never again) on a shot gun because I wanted to try it. I do it as a hobby but have though about opening a shop but my Other job I just retired from took all my time and life. I do It for friends and have made a lot of Kel Tec pistols work perfect not to mention High points, cheap 1911s, cheap micro 1911s, botched ak builds . Just finished a Beretta 84 that a woman dropped off that she bought years ago and never fired it. Have a old Rem 721 30.06 that has been neglected next and then 2 shot guns and a 22 target pistol. The only way to do something that you have not done before is to start
  4. Never tolerated in the Navy Lose your self control ,lose your commission
  5. Any time you can go to school and do what you love better is a good Idea. If you go to the school it will open up a ton of roads you never thought possible. As for the barrel in your gun being shot out that may not be so. when I shoot a rifle with a thinner barrel I keep track of it temp. Some guns shoot better cold and some shoot better warm. Also 30.06 is not a bad round .
  6. Trump will win , he has not lost yet. The Swamp can be a smelly thing
  7. YouTube is in a transition they are dumping a lot of controversial material guns, pot smokers, conservative people But we always need to realize for the most part people making content for their channels are making money. It is about the money, some of these people make a very good living doing this. I have developed and run 2 websites that can upload video, but the problem is why would I want to do that for others if it is on my dime. Because it is my dime it is also my data. in other word there is no incentive to let others share their material for free. Why not have the gun and ammo producers set up and sponsor a gun tube. The NRA can and should be a part of it. However, I do not see this going anywhere unless the content producers are compensated.
  8. If it is a old gun why not try doing it yourself. Taking a barrel off is nothing . I think that most guys that work on their guns have had to risk hurting the gun in order to advance in knowledge and skill. If it is just a barrel get a good one and go for it. and when you shoot it you will have something. The money spent for tools will be the difference in the cost of hiring a gun smith. And it is almost as fun as reloading. Reloading is what will give you your dime shooter. I also think you can do the mag upgrade with the 700 adl
  9. if it is not going to be a competition rifle what is the point? Just buy a used rifle that has what you want or sell or trade up to what you want. There is a lot of joy working on guns but in the end you should expect a better shooting gun for the money
  10. Do you do birthday gigs?
  11. God bless all who make Her great God Bless America (and you to CA)

    A new addition to the family

    Its a Kel-Tec Fluff and buff it and do the mag insides also. I have shot them but felt like a kiddy gun. they just need some pre shoot care and you will never have problems with it again. I remember the keyholing they had with the first ones but they fixed the barrels. go to their web blog lots of help there have fun

    Carry Belt

    I use the light I have also had my Blackhawk reinforced ccw belts for years but They do not sell them any more. Look for a thick stiff belt with a rounded buckle or one with stainless built into the belt are you ccwing the judge
  14. They stink on Ice . You pay to get in the door which takes away from saving money, you used to be able to deal and you could get some good army boots for a steal. Never go anymore as well
