Your Thursday Rule 5 Puzzle

 And my favorite Gun Bunny on the left.

I think I've figgured it out

 When I get the new (okay, new to me) 3/4 ton at the sales yard, I'll have the salesman tell me to be sure to send that info to the office from your FFL.

He's a used car salesman, so lying is something they do naturally like Millennials.

I guess it's safe to put this up

 Don't tell the wife.
I still don't know how I'm going to tell her.

This is the most expensive rifle I've ever bought.

But she is purdy, isn't she?

Another reason I don't drive Fords

 I shouldn't be bagging on them because I own stock and they didn't screw their stockholders when they took Satan's bailout..................GM.

But when they did away with the full sized Bronco and went with that butt-fugly late 90's body style they lost me.
Their radios suck.
The steering is completely isolated from the road.
Her 2013 has been in the shop more than my 2013 Silverado.

And the final reason is their capless gas filler neck. Which you can't open with a gas can spout, or jamming the pliers part of a leatherman into it.
If you try letting it pour in and seep in, it flows to the ground.
......So you have to improvise with anything cylindrical and handy.


EDIT TO ADD-
I didn't know that it had to use a supplied adapter, and I'm NOT going to dig around in all the crap the wife carries in the back of her cab.

I wouldn't think this would be a good way to get noticed

 ........But I'm not a seller of overpriced guns.
This guy has, since I've been watching, changed almost everything about his ad- except the pics.

Now his starting price is what he originally had it as a Buy it Now price.
But he threw in 500 rounds of steel cased ammo -worth about $300.
And you get the tactikool black stock to go with it.




So, it's true-

 Liberalism really IS a mental disease.


In examining Goldberg’s thread, Evie Magazine's Elizabeth Condra argued that "building resiliency against hardship is the best weapon against depression and anxiety, yet progressive ideology forces its followers to wallow in feelings of helplessness and victimhood. Instead of empowering women and minorities with self-knowledge, strength of character, and resilience to hardship, progressivism encourages victims to stay in a place of fear and helplessness."

I guess I should be glad someone is going to outbid me

 I mentioned it on FB and the wife asked (well told me anyway) ANOTHER gun!?!
I couldn't even say it's my birthday present because I just bought a Colt 1851 Navy last week.

I don't think it would have gone over well if I said, but this one is for you- it would fit you better and it's light enough for you to enjoy shooting :-)

Well Yahoo...

 It would have probably lasted longer if you didn't let it become a complete troll farm...

AAR- San Antonio SAXET gun show

Lots of knives and pistols. Plenty of EBRs, too. I got the Colt Navy I bought on Gunbroker and the wife got some moderately overpriced .38 JHP($65 for 50). 

Only saw about three M-1 carbines, assorted bolties and the usual assortment of misc. parts and mags. 

What I didn't see and would have laid down cash for was any 80% lowers. I bet that would be a good seller if anyone tried it. Or maybe there's some legal reason nobody's selling them...

New to me revolver

 Looks like I'm going to be the winner of an Armi San Marco Colt Navy if nobody outbids me.

Now it looks like the ammo shortage is hitting the BP market, too in that when I'm done with the last half pound of Pyrodex, I'm going to have to start making it myself.

The components by themselves are nowhere near what I've seen the scattered examples of online.

I just wonder how much the modern, cleaner version of BP substitute is than the original?
Guess I'll find out.

Now I need to go make a stand for my new semi-reactive targets.

Well Nike- they've got your swoosh on them

 Apparently People are unset that some rapper is selling shoes that have ONE DROP of human blood in them. Each of my trucks probably have more than that smeared on them somewhere...

But Nike is saying they don't have anything to do with the overpriced shoes made with slave labor.

-But they still have the swoosh-

If some Christian group came along and made alterations to sell- you KNOW that Nike would have them in court.

And they have me working overtime again

 Schedule says for another three weeks.

I have shit to do at the house that's -finally not related to project Deep Freeze.
So I have to push that off for another month.

I've had the two base sections of the bandsaw sitting on the trailer for a good month and haven't had time to do jack.
Because donkeys!

I can't set anything up and leave it because nosy donkeys will move things, fry to eat it or use it as a scratching post. 

They scratch hard, too. I have a solid, hard grey PVC outdoor receptical box lying on the ground because they broke off all four ear tabs securing it to the 4x4.

 Hotski is NOT fixing to make a sammich with that pig sticker.


The "Equality Act" that's now law.

 You thought the Republicans were running a "War on Women" by limiting birth control by infanticide and expecting them to act like an adult when you treat them as one.

I guess.

Now the Socialists Democrats are not only forcing females of all ages to be subservient to a guys whims  when he decides  he's not good enough to compete with guys and decides to call himself a "woman".
So he -as a mediocre male- can wipe the floor with star female athletes who don't have the testosterone fueled musculoskeletal structure of a guy.

Then to add insult to injury, they're told they're intolerant to not want to see the same guy flashing his junk around in the same locker room.

You forgot a word there VEEP

 That word would be-
FINALLY

Because your party had to wait on a second taxpayer relief bill until OrangeManBad lost a rigged election so you could distribute what Nancy Pelosi  describes as "crumbs".
Not that it really matters to those who need more than $1400 to try paying back mortgages, car loans, rent, utility bill and grocery's.

But HEY! At least you got your Blue State Bailout through.

Have never stood in line for everything you need----to get your food, money, paperwork, haircuts or even to turn in your tools.

And it shows-
ETA-
That's a line of cars waiting for the McDonalds drive thru.
The parking lot is a good 100 yards wide (to the curb cut at the road) where those cars are waiting and more are lined up on the access Rd where you can't see them.

After action report on Operation Deep Freeze

 We were doing fine last week on bottled propane- because some dumbass forgot to check the big tank outside- until they started rolling blackouts.
We had enough through rotations of the bottles and refilling them that the tank top heaters kept the rooms the were in warm.

The water pump froze up when they shut off  power.
After the first thaw, I fixed the broken fitting going into the pressure tank.


And we had water for us and the horses.
Sometime after, we noticed A LOT of air purging the lines.... more than just normal air working it's way out.
Since everything is soaking through where the water comes into the house at the lower 1/2 bath- I'm betting (hoping) that it's leaking where the hose bib froze solid.

I'll be able to go in through the outside wall and save fixing the drywall right behind the commode.

You can see the water soaking through the 3/4 70 year old plywood.

Joe XIden and the stock market

Right now my stocks over at Robbing Hood are worth a little over 3 times what I paid for them.
I could just have them transferred to my broker at the bank and just ride the slide and hop for the best.


OR

I could sell all but Tesla and Workhorse and pay the Xiden taxes next year.

I'm really leaning towards selling before 0bama 2.0 bottoms the stock market out.

-But the stock market doesn't really reflect the economy- *insert eye roll smiley here*

 Because I was driving to Wetherford to pick up a sacrificial ATV to be used as a band saw prime mover.
