my wife and i never were able to have kids so their is very seldom any
children to hide from. at one point we thought this was a curse but we have
in later years decided that not haveing to go through some of the things we
have seen our friends go through makes the no children thing a blessing. i
teach boyscouts thus i get to interact with kids but when it comes time to
spend money on them or they cause trouble i get to hand them back to their
parents. win/win for me.
my wife is good about giving me enough time to be me and seldom hammers me
with honeydo's. so hiding from her is what work is for. once work is over
i am happy to be home and in her company. she seldom messes with me when i
go to the basement though. that is my kingdom and i get to rule over it. i
wear the pants in my house! (of course the ol lady washes them, lays them
out for me in the morning and tells me how to put them on...)
actually as long as i keep her harleys running well and take an occasional
road trip with her she is the easiest to maintain woman i have ever met.
life is good on the ponderosa.
Looks like you can have alot of fun in your little corner..<G> Most of my
equipment is Lee. Seems to work good for me and it's not real expensive. I
shoot mostly handgun so have loaded all pistol ammo till now. I just got the
dies for .223 and .220 Swift. I'm sure there is a learning curve that I'm
gonna go thru...
i still have a lot of lee equipment. my first press and most of my early
loading was done with their equipment. it does as good of a job as most
until you start looking at higher production rates or shooting bench rest
rifle competition where things start getting measured in the thousandths.
aare you loading .223 for a turn bolt or a repeater? 220 swift is one of my
more favorite cartridges.
As long as I can peg a groundhog out to about 300-350 yds I'm happy.
The .223 will be for my AR15. Most of my shooting with that is my three gun
matches where 100yd will be about the longest shot. I'll be shooting fmj
only at this time.
I'm gonna try Varget in the swift to start out. We'll see how it goes and
try something different if I have to. I'm shooting 55gr Nosler out of a
Ruger 77 mk 2. What powder do you use???
And I'm really thinking of getting another one before the Demos get elected.
I'm guessing the next ban will make the Clinton ban look like a piece of
Look at what's happening to the price of ammo and reloading supplies. If
they can't ban the firearm they'll make it too expensive to shoot it.
That should get a good arguement started..........
That's one of the reason's I kept all but 2 of mine.
I also brought along a couple of cases's of American Eagle with me for the
We both have our FL CCW permits, a few hoops to jump through but pretty
quick process. Now I'm licensed in a very conservative and a very liberal
state. Who woulda thought.
Hey!! How's your daughter doing? I know she out shoots you. Is she still at
Yup, it should. Do you really think Huckabuck has any real chance?? Believe
me you don't want mitty.
We are fair weather shooters up here. We don't like to get our fingers
She's not bad with a pistol and will only get better if she'd practice more.
But she has a 4 yr old that takes up a bunch of her time.
Don't piss her off with an iron sighted rifle..... She's good... But I can
still take her with a scope.
My gut feeling is that Obama charactor is gonna win it. I don't know what to
believe. I've read that he's a Muslim, won't salute the flag ect. Even at
that he'd have to be better than another Clinton. I'm registered as a
Republican but I don't think any of them will make it.
ron paul may well become the ross perot of the 2008 election. he is wayyy
too far to the right to ever get elected on a national platform. his views
are solid enough to even get a john bircher all giddy. because of this he
won't appeal to the left or moderates.
here is what i see happening. the rebulican party nomination will go to
huckabee or romney. hillary is going to come out hard against obama and the
smear is going to leave him vulnerable allowing my worst nightmare, john
edwards to steal the nomination. he will be pressured to select hillary as
a running mate due to her financial campaign assests. he will be scared of
her and waffle back and forth between her and obama. hillary gets him the
womens vote and obama the black vote. how that plays is a toss up.
if he choses hillary they will win and after a couple of years she will hire
a hitman to kill him and take the oval office by default. i really think
she is that mean. if he choses obama he will be safe.
when it goes to the general election it will be the republicans agains the
democrats and if the republican candidate has any chance at all then ron
paul will jump in as an independent and split the conservative vote and give
the democrats a shoe in.
those are my preseason predictions. am in the recliner with a big bowl of
popcorn and a glass of ice tea waiting to see how it all plays out.
Ross Perot scared me. I liked his ideas but he wasn't political enough. He
wanted the government to run like a profitable business at all costs. I was
afraid he'd get some other country or activist group pissed at us and we'd
end up going to war over something stupid. Oops.
What things do the left and moderates not like about him?
The women's vote at the Iowa caucus went to Obama with 35%. Clinton got 30%
and Edwards got 23%. Ironically, the women's vote could make Obama
attractive to Edwards as a running mate. I don't think Clinton would
entertain the V.P. nomination anyway.
You think Ron Paul would do that to the Republicans? I know he's not
strictly loyal to the Republican party but I doubt he'd intentionally take
votes away from them.
I think the election race will look very different by November. About this
time in 2004 Howard Dean looked very competitive. I'll make my predictions
after the nominations.
Usenet spam? I don't see it unless you think that me asking about him being
left in the dust is spam. I didn't know he was a graffiti artist. Maybe
that's why he wants to secure our borders. He'd have a 1,500 mile long wall
he could paint his name on. What "other bad things" does he do?
Ya you can take her with a scope if she's useing iron sights.
I don't see Obama doing it. Although it would seem that folks want change
and he has draped change all over himself. Once they really start to peel
away at Obama I think you will see his support shift away somewhat. Clinton
will pick up the older vote in the states to come. Her husband, like him or
hate him is real good at foreign relations, we sorely need sombody to undo
some of the mess gb has created. I think a lot of folks are sorta looking at
two for the price of one that clinton brings. But who know's they all pretty
much suck imo.
I honestly don't see a repub pulling it off. No matter who wins.
