  2. Yes, the word Recreational Brings to mind even more laws and regulation by some alphabet Government entity.
  3. On the Constitutional Stand Point there right. But California is messed up in the head.
  4. One is Federal Regulation and other Law. I would think Law Trumps Regulation.. We will See.

  8. Nice Going. Going back I suppose.
  9. Growing up Tubes were still Prevalent , still being made and I even learned in USAF Electronics school there workings but never did anything with it. Wasn't keen on the Higher Voltages in play. Not much a tube can do that the better Semiconductors can't. Except one thing. Tubes are pretty much immune to EMP from a Nuke Blast. Durring the cold war a Mig pilot defected and we got to see what was so special about one. They laughed at the Russian using Tubes in the Radio's, Avionics and stuff. Then they figured out why. EMP Proof.
  10. Don't think your detector would last long. The kids seem to be the issue.

When Camping Walk the washes with a black light in the dark look for anything that Glows. Note Rattle Snakes are not Fluorescent and DO NOT GLOW. All I find around here is Calidone, Fluorite and Scorpions.
  12. You can get enough Acetone to do the job just buying some finger nail polish remover. Be sure it's the acetone type at the dollar store.
  13. All the good ones around here have Bat Bars on them now. You need a Tow Truck. LOL
  14. My main perch is on the end of the couch. I get a charge when they come in the house and buzz me or just get in my face checking me out. Fearless they are.
  15. LOL, these are just like 3 or 4 oz. May need to go SUPER SIZE soon.
