Weekend road trip.

Took a little road trip last weekend. Started around 1:30 PM on Friday and drove from Kansas City to Springfield, MO. Stopped at the NRA museum in the Bass Pro Shop there, and saw some interesting firearms. They had a couple of original Hawkin rifles, the air rifle Lewis and Clark took with them up ...

Re: Hurricane Michael

So sorry to hear about all the damage. Here in middle America we have to worry about tornadoes, but they are pretty surgical and only last about 30 seconds if you are hit by one. I read where Michael was like an F2 tornado that lasted for 30 minutes. That must have been terrifying. Glad you are okay...

Looking good. I've been wanting to try smoking some ribs but haven't tried it yet.

Re: Charcoal burners

Very nice. There's something elegant about the old side-locks. I started shooting BP in the early '70's. My first one was an $18.50 belt pistol kit gun from CVA. Lots of fun and pretty accurate in the right hands.

Re: Southern MN storms.

Micro burst from the looks of it. Been through a couple but not quite that bad. Had a lot of fun trying to find the lid to my Weber grill after the first one. Never did fit quite right after that flight. :lol: Saw a lovely little restored barn get scattered over about two acres after another one. Sc...

Re: Sounds of Silence

I like the Disturbed cover. 'Course Simon and Garfunkel are hard to beat, and their version was just one guitar and two voices. That's pretty impressive for such an iconic song.

Re: Why P51 was Faster than the BF 109

Just stumbled across this video and thought it might be relevant. Kinda helps you appreciate the P51 a little more. Oh, don't play it at full volume.

Re: Gun Shows: When Did Our World Go Nuts?

Back in about 2005 AIM Surplus was selling Swiss K-31's for $59.95 delivered to your door. I had just gotten my C&R license and bought one. I put a clamp on scope mount on it and an old 10X scope and shot the best group of my life. At today's prices for K-31's, I kick myself for not buying at least ...

Re: World's Largest Black Powder Cannon

I watched that video a couple of weeks ago. There was as tremendous amount of engineering and construction that went into that thing. The loading procedure was amazing. Especially the pump and hydraulic system.
