  1. Heading to Libby, Montana for some much needed nozzle time
  2. It means cut this sign down with the jagged edge saw on the bottom so it will be legal to what people have been doing for hundreds of years
  3. looking at the wires, some have a corrugated pattern and some are straighter. I would guess they were originally together in a weaved pattern and may have been a screen of some sort.....If they are brittle that might indicate some nickle in the alloy and that is why they might not rust that much....just a WAG.
  4. Its is called a Crosspoint Sniper 370 mad by the Crossman Company famous for air rifles & Cabelas sells it. I researched these things for a long time. I certainly did not want to spend a grand or more for one that is capable of shooting more than 350 fps. I also went to stores and tried was not happy with the fit of many fixed stock units. When I sow how adjustable the Stock and for-end were, how fast it shot, was made in the USA by a reputable company and it was available for $300 or less I was sold. I have not been disappointed at all. http://www.cabelas.com/product/CENTER-POINT-SNIPER-CAMO-CROSSBOW-PACKAGE/2359254.uts?searchPath=%2Fbrowse.cmd%3FcategoryId%3D734095080%26CQ_search%3Dcrosspoint%2Bsniper%2B370%26CQ_st%3Db http://www.crosman.com/archery/centerpoint-crossbows/sniper-370-camo
  5. I have always wanted one of these and picked this up. A little zeroing in and it's deadly accurate out to 30 yards. Shoots a 100 grain bolt at 370fps. I have not shot it further yet but will soon. Going to try to behead a turkey this fall. Anyone else here shoot these?
  6. give me a call
  7. Tom, I could make one into a nose ring just for you.........
  8. Bet you wondered what that was? A Lady detectorist in Virginia asked for one of these and here is what she got. It was fun to make.
  9. Its been kind of crazy since it started. Finally getting good sleep now that is seems to be almost controlled. The fire started in the bottom of the canyon below my house about two miles away. Mandatory evacs were less than a mile away and we were in an advisory evacuation situation. We have been totally ready to bug out at a moments notice and did all we could to prep the house and property. The firefighting effort was monumental especially the air attack. The nice quiet area was like an airshow and the many bulldozers could be heard 24/7 for a week. The closest the fire actually got was about 1 1/2 miles. We owe everything to the amazing firefighters......... and having a DC-10 fly over the house at very low altitude was reassuring......When I get some photos off my iphone I will post....some were taken by me, some by local photographers and some were from video screen-grabs. the one picture of a hill top at night is really cool. if you can enlarge it look on the top of that lighted hill and you can see three firefighters.
  10. Hey Steve, I left a question for you in the lounge. Are you being effected by the fire in your area?

    I logged an area east of Forest Hill several years ago and was wondering about the fire effecting y'all.

      Sorry I did not see this until today.

       The fire came darn close this time, but the firefighters did an amazing job protecting my small community of Todd Valley.... the lower part of Todd Valley was evacuated but my street was voluntary evac.... We were ready to bug out on a moments notice for ten days......The sky was like a constant airshow.......al is good now and almost back to normal.  I only wish the rest of the country was the same

  11. Why sell it unless money is needed. I did sell a bunch in 2012 and paid for my new Jeep. But another great alternative is have a nice piece of heirloom jewelry made from your gold. That pops the value up considerably.
  12. Such dumb f**k politicians. Thers new laws will do absolutely nothin to stop criminals, terrorist or looney tunes from getting GUNS or ammo. However it will certainly make many law abiding citizens become criminals. I love living where I am and at 70 do not plane to ever move again......let the fight begin!
  13. Can't wait to see what a slice looks like.......
  14. PRICE DROP: $500 includes shipping
  15. I have a Gold Bug Pro, purchased new by me that I want to sell. It has all three available coils and is in fantastic condition. $550 shipped conus sjwandt@reagan.com
