  1. Taking a shit when I first heard about it. Why is it that everyone just has to bother me on the throne?

    McCain is gone!

    It could have gone on for years before it really becomes a problem. In my father's case, it may have gone on 10-15 years before it became a problem. The first we really knew something was wrong was when he had seizures. Possibly related was the cleanup at the Rockwell plant where my father worked. The machining coolant used was found to cause brain tumors. A number of the machinists developed brain tumors. My father was in the shop all the time doing time studies. After removal of my father's tumor, it was a 20 year decent into the hell of dementia until his death 2 years ago. It certainly explains a whole lot of McCain's craziness in the last few years.
  3. White gas is mainly naptha. The old gas I had stunk a bit in the heater, but no more than I remembered it. The newer stuff stinks quite a bit less.
  4. Well, a gallon of white gas will do the same as 4 1/2 propane cylinders, plus it stores well. I ran some that was forgotten for 40 years, and it still ran perfect. Good for prepping!
  5. Local retailers seem to be having problems getting Coleman Fuel/white gas. One I talked to said that it's been on order for the last 3 months. How are supplies in your area?
  6. I run a Leatherman Supertool 200. I need to start looking for a replacement as she's 18 and needing an overhaul. If I don't have hair on my forearm, you know how sharp she is. Found a nice Wave at a pawn shop for $30 that needed a little TLC. Looked like somebody's kid tried cutting bubble gum with it, and he didn't know how to sharpen it. Gave it an oil bath and some time on the Arkansas stones, and she looked like new. Gave it to my nephew for his bug out bag. I put a ST-300 into my vehicle emergency kit. It doesn't have the fine screwdriver that I need for audio connectors that the 200 does.
  7. I've had old/faulty ammunition problems in the past, but this is the first real mechanical problem that I've had since the weapon went runaway full auto from a gummed up firing pin. This rifle has been a happy little chatterbox since I was 8. Never had a problem with the BX-10, and Bingham mags. This is the first I've seen with the BX-25.
  8. I went out to dump some scrap wood in the burner last night and got surprised by a horde of raccoons by the door. Ran inside and grabbed the 10/22 and a BX-25 mag and loaded 10 CCI Stingers. On lock and load, the first round jammed in the mag and had to be pried out of the mag. The bullet got rammed into the case somehow, and refused to feed. Next round fed fine, and I headed around the house to engage. Dropped the first one in his tracks, and the coons scattered. The next coon I had targeted, started to run and made it to the ceasefire line before I could nail him. I turned on the lantern when I heard a rustle from the inverted mulberry tree. Shining the light up into the tree I saw three more in the top of the tree. One began climbing down, and I was too close to use the scope, so I put the muzzle a foot from his head and pulled the trigger. Heard a thump of a body hitting the ground as the tree shook. NO BODY! NOT EVEN A BLOOD TRAIL! ?????? Two more were still up there and I nailed the next. As he hung in the tree drooling blood, the last one tried crawling down the branches not giving me a head shot, so I let him have it roughly in the ribcage, and heard him hit the ground. He ran and made it to a ceasefire line, but he was moving slow. Again no blood trail! ??? The two I did bag, the Stingers really messed them up. The other two probables couldn't have been missed, as I was darn near poking them with the muzzle. Hope they regroup and try again! I'll be waiting! I think this is the horde of groundhogs that a neighbor saw. She said there were 5 of them. Anyone else have the jamming problem with the BX-25 mags? I have never seen that before with any Ruger mag.
  9. Who knows? If it made the ballot, it might.
  10. The Cal 3 proposal just got enough signatures to make the November ballot. It would split the state into Northern C, Southern C, and California.
  11. That's the result of 10 buckets. It's a little low for being the good side of the stream. I've been averaging about 10-15 colors per pan on the good side, and 1-2 on the bad side. The trout love the holes I'm putting in their stream.
  12. Found a .22 cal tracer bullet in the gold pan today.
  13. Nice to see a necro post without a case of spam.
  14. Stick with buck for home defense, and birdshot for birds. I had to take down a rabid coyote with target loads, and it took 3 10 rnd mags to kill it. It took 5 rounds to knock a leg out from under him and put him down, and another 25 to stop all movement. Range 10 yards. Well, at least they're powertrippin on spammers!
