Mornin gents.

Shooting at small things with an AR15 that I built as a precision  rifle. It loves 77gr. Sierra Match Kings and that's about it. I use 55gr. bulk ammo to make it fare, and who wants to blow 50 cents a shot to shoot rocks and tin cans.

Latest test results: Successfully launched a MX missile this morning with ease. So that covers the Mk 48 torpedo, and the MX missile test. The rest of the test will take some time.

The weather here isn't bad for now. Started in upper 20s and going to upper 30s with high thin clouds, but tonight the locust and pestilence arrive. We're supposed to get snow, freezing rain, and the torrential rains in the middle of the night tonight. At least that's what the weatherman say's, but hey, who believes them.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Good morning all,

Another glorious day here, too nice to be inside really!

BF, yes it was a good outing, some challenging stalking but the right result in the end. Good luck with the new "launcher"!

What were you shooting at small things with?

Mornin gents.

Good deal Mike. Glad you had a successful hunt.

I got to play in the BIG Bowl GAME Saturday. I got to play in the toilet bowl.
I swapped out toilet bowls in one of the bathrooms. Of course what a plumber told me would take 15 minutes, took me a few hours and 2 trips to the hardware store, but I got it done.
Now I'm in the shake down phase of seeing what this new toilet can handle. So far it handles medium size depth charges and the associated paper work with ease, and uses much less water. The question is, will it handle the Mk 48 torpedoes, the MX missiles, the M.O.A.T, or the exploding volcano, not to mention Moby Dick and the book he came in. If any of them jam the launcher up, then the next question is, how easy is to clear the launcher. Getting the launcher up and running quickly after a jam is very important.

Sunday I shot at small things that were out past 300yds with a couple of friends. Froze my butt off and started talking in tongues. Hauled 3 loads of water later and split some wood.

Yeah that was all fun. That or I inhaled to much septic gas.

Well the good weather has broken. Overcast and mild here but no sun. Just had a great weekend hunting muntjac and CWD.

Everyone else have a good weekend?

Back in 1977 and 78 we had 2 really bad winters. 1977 had a 12-14" snow and really cold temps for weeks. The Ohio all but froze over. Something that hadn't happened since the early 1900s. In 1978 we had a repeat of sorts, 20 some inches in one snow and 12 in another one 6 weeks later. It was really cold the whole time, but not as cold as 1977. We had snow on the ground into April that year.
Everybody thought it was global cooling, and the city bought all kinds of snow removal equipment and 4WD vehicles and ambulances. All that equipment was worn out or gone by the next big snow in 1994.
In the meantime in the late 80s we had 2 or 3 summers in a row with summer droughts and temps stayed in the 90s and low 100s for weeks and weeks. That's when global warming became the new phrase. Of course the big snow and record cold in 1994 didn't make a dent in the man made global warming/climate change propaganda.
Is climate change occuring? Yep, always has and always will, with and without man.Can man stop it? Sure, when a man can hold up his hand and stop the ocean waves.

Nice weather till.....you guessed it,  Saturday!  Loco
Then more snow.  It's gonna be next year before I get to see my granddaughter again.... 


G, I traded in the Altima back in June of 2014.  Alitma's CVT trany was acting up and only 900 miles left on warranty.  i went back to a Camry.  I got lucky as Toyota had a special pricing on their XLE versions.  I got it cheaper than I could get a base mode; Camry.... Hippie  that was 85K miles ago.... Bucky

Mornin gents.

Overcast and mild temps with gusty winds. Freezing rain and snow on the way Friday night, followed by locust and plague.
