AAR New Braunfels gun show

 Wife wanted to go, so we went.
I'm kinda surprised that my knee held up so well.


Saw a lot of EBRs.
I was kinda looking for a .357 in something like a Marlin flavor -but not Rossi, I've seen too many problems with them.
I was also kinda looking for an old AR with a carrying handle - which are like unicorns.

Then the wife wanted something to drink and as we were passing another table ----- I saw it 

An old AR I guess pre A-2 model with the slab sides and full 22" barrel with triangle guard.
He wanted $1300 for it.
So I passed- I couldn't convince myself to pay that much- again.


After sitting and the wife saying "I'm not telling you to buy it, but when you're ready- it's only going to be more expensive.
Plus I remembered the extra thousand I had from selling stocks when 0biden was finally installed, so...


We got to the booth again and someone had just bought it.

But I didn't walk away empty handed.
.............And the FBI was not called

Anyway, I was coming up on the horse trailer that's been stuck in the paddock since the deluge back in April (because I didn't have time to move it and it's really not hurting anything where it is) I saw something moving inside.

Different takes on happenings

 I was listening to two different talk shows at work yesterday (and this morning- I guess....same workday) and each had it's own take on what the Democrats are doing.

The first one is a local host- Jack Riccardi on KTSA (and sounds a lot different than he looks)
Who thinks that the way the Democrat leadership (Pelosi, Schumer,,,Duckworth....) are acting not worried at all about how their support is completely crumbling because of the meat pupped 0biden's actions show something bigger is going on.
Pelosi and Schumer owe their cushy jobs to staying in power, and neither one seems to want to do anything to stop the slide.

The other hand has Redeye radio with the two hosts Gary McNamera and Eric Harley (who also look a lot different than they sound).

Who both think the Democrats are running scared because of the problems whoever is running 0biden is causing. They think Democrats know what's coming and are trying to get whatever they can of their anti-American agenda through before they're all out of power.

I don't know sometimes I think they're to crafty to get into trouble -because they're the party of lies and deceit and knifing an ally in the back- by creating such (on the surface) self owns and someone deep behind he scenes has it all planned out for them to win at whatever they're playing for.

Another part can't understand WHY they're letting this go on- why Pelosi isn't screaming at whoever is controlling 0biden to stop fucking up her  agenda.

"Keel moose and squirrel"

 If you were old enough to enjoy then on Saturday mornings



In addition to producing animated series based on such characters as Crusader Rabbit, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Dudley Do-Right, Peabody and Sherman, Hoppity Hooper, George of the Jungle, Tom Slick, and Super Chicken, Joseph Ward Cohen Jr., also known as Jay Ward, founbded a company, Jay Ward Productions, that designed the trademark characters for the Cap'n Crunch, Quisp, and Quake breakfast cereals and made TV commercials for those products.
Ward and friend/partner Alex Anderson lost the rights to the Crusader Rabbit character in a legal fight with businessman Shull Bonsall, who had taken over the assets of the bankrupt Jerry Fairbanks company, and a new color Crusader Rabbit series under a different producer premiered in 1956. Ward then pursued an unsold series idea, "The Frostbite Falls Revue." Taking place in a TV studio in the North Woods, the proposed series featured a cast of eccentrics such as newsman Oski Bear and two minor characters named Rocky the Flying Squirrel and Bullwinkle J. Moose, described in the script treatment as a "French-Canadian moose."
Premiering on ABC in 1959 (and moving to NBC two years later), "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends" contained a mix of sophisticated and low-brow humor. Thanks to Ward's genial partner Bill Scott (who contributed to the scripts and voiced Bullwinkle and other characters) and their writers, puns were used often and shamelessly: in a "Fractured Fairy Tales" featuring Little Jack Horner, upon pulling out the plum, Jack announced, "Lord, what foods these morsels be!" Self-referential humor was another trademark: in one episode, the breathless announcer (William Conrad) gave away the villain's plans, prompting the villain to grab the announcer from offscreen, bind and gag him, and deposit him visibly within the scene. The show skewered popular culture, taking on such subjects as advertising, college sports, the Cold War, and TV itself. The hapless duo from Frostbite Falls, Minnesota, blundered into unlikely adventures much as Crusader and Rags had before them, pursued by "no-goodnik" spies Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale, perennially under orders to "keel moose and squirrel."
In a running-joke tribute to Ward, many of his cartoon characters had the middle initial "J.", presumably standing for "Jay" (although this was never stated explicitly). The cartoonist Matt Groening later gave the middle initial "J." to many of his characters as a tribute to Ward.
Ward fought many heated battles over content with the network and sponsor. The "Kirward Derby", a bowler hat that made everyone stupid and Bullwinkle a genius, was named (as a spoonerism) for Durward Kirby, sidekick of the 1950s and 1960s TV host Garry Moore and the co-host of Allen Funt's "Candid Camera." When Kirby threatened to sue, Ward quipped, "Please do! We need the publicity!"
An eccentric and proud of it, Ward was known for pulling an unusual publicity stunt that coincided with a national crisis. Ward bought an island in Minnesota near his home and dubbed it "Moosylvania," based upon the home of his Bullwinkle TV character. He and publicist Howard Brandy crossed the country in a van, gathering signatures on a petition for statehood for Moosylvania. They then visited Washington, D.C., and attempted to gain an audience with President John F. Kennedy. Unfortunately, they arrived at the White House the morning the Cuban Missile Crisis was breaking, and were ordered at gunpoint to drive off. (Wikipedia)
Happy Birthday, Jay Ward!

Keeping Austin weird

 I had to spend almost all of my shift in Austin last night. I don't know what was going on, but it seemed like someone took a gunnysack full of assholes, dropped in a handful of keys and shook it up.

Then they grabbed the bottom and flung it around so the assholes would be spread all over looking for the wreck they were supposed to get into.


And they found them. From Georgetown to the south side. One was even flipped on it's top on an intersection under I-35.

Then the wife reported that she found the two missing ponies on the neighbors land (it's for sale if you have an extra $800K).

 Who say they can't stop people from crapping in their streets are now going to force the entire working population in America to get a shot that wasn't even thought of 24 months ago.

It's not about health, it's about control.

So we got a speach yesterday

 I hear the meat puppet that call itself president went and read a teleprompter.

He mumbled about the attack on the airport and how we're going to be coming after the masterminds who did it.
After watching Operation Clusterfuck- I'm sure who did it is quaking in their bedroom slippers right now.
We're leaving civilians behind because our enemy won't do what we ask when we say Pretty Please.

Right now almost everyone thinks this is a failure of the worst kind.
Given what I heard from Richard Cantu on the way home from work this morning- the mumbling struck fear into ISIS- ISL...whatever.
In two or three week, with the lies of the propaganda wing of the DNC going full bore- this won't be a  complete fiasco.
In a month, those left to their fate will be deserving it and in two months 0biden will be a hero for walking away from the war on terrorism.


The next attack here (which probably will come from the southern border) will be OrangeManBads fault.

Wednesday, August 18, 2021

Anyone with any common sense would have seen this from last year

 I didn't like it when Trump announced our pullout date from Afghanistan.

It gave terrorists time to plan and get ready to overtake an army that was only held together by money, not national pride- or anything else we as Americans would stay for.
It's an army of tribes, who would fight other tribes except for the U.S. keeping the lid on them.

But to just bug out in the middle of the night without forewarning anyone on the Afghani side was stupid and a sure way to let anyone know we didn't have their backs.

What da fuq did you expect to happen Milley? "Our intelligence told us it would be weeks or months before the entire country was under Taliban control".
I guess your intelligence was busy reading those books about "White Rage" you're so concerned about instead of -you know- actually giving good unbiased intel.


At least OrangeManBad would have had a reserve plan- instead of "EVERYONE FOR THEMSELVES!!"

 

Now- what's this supposed to be distracting us from closer to home?

Tuesday, August 17, 2021

The KISS principle

 Keep It Stupid Simple.

We have five new trucks we deliver from. Three big and two smaller ones.
None are older than mid 2020.
Every one has already had problems with the .GOV required emissions.
Mostly sensors or software.



This truck has a sensor problem.
The sensor is not available in the entire CONUS.  Luckily it didn't affect the engine.
This time.


After this last attack on a gas pipeline and the resulting shortages- even where there was no direct impact- I decided to get at least one diesel truck.

After going through the first problem, I decided to would be pre-2006 about when DEF was mandated for light trucks.
I'm leaning toward Dodge and Chevy ..and a pre-1998 Ford.
Chevy was really light on their Duramax in those years, I had a 1500 Ram and still like the look of the first gen trucks (1995-2002) and I decided that after Ford fucked up their 1996 line of F-150's that I wouldn't drive one again.

Now the chip shortage has the prices of those trucks 2-3 times what they should be.

Tx DPS abd BP getting ready for something

 As soon as I turned onto the road to Eagle Pass from Uvalde I was seeing DPS on the southbound side of the highway- 2 to 3 abreast. All the way into Eagle pass- a good 2 hours of nothing but road, gates and cops.

When I came back via HWY 57 (to I 35) and went through the Border Patrol checkpoint, they were all vested-up and packing more than normal.

Good! They well deserved that loss

 The women's national soccer team knelt in disrespect to the flag before their last game in the Olympics and (I guess it's bad) got their butts kicked 0-3.

They're supposed to be the best in the world, but lost their 44 game winning streak in front of probably the biggest audience they've had in a year.
I don't know why out tax Dollars are supporting a professional team anyway.

Jesse Owens had to go the the German Olympics on his own dime, and he knew real racism, Jim Crow laws and segregated drinking fountains. Yet he was still proud to represent America.

Jim Thorpe Lost his Olympic medals because he played on a minor league baseball team three years before the 1912 Olympics......... and still didn't hate the country he came from.

Though shit you thankless cunts who worship the cult of antiAmerican wokeness.

Now they've copied the newest thing on talk radio- multiple hosts talking at each other.
I guess it could work in a nice quiet office area, but in a truck they sound like they're talking over each other.

Which is the reason I don't listen to KTSA in the mid-morning with the three guys talking over each other or another station that does the same thing.

If you're going that rout, st least have tow guys that don't sound the same- maybe see what they sound like in a noisy truck driving down the road.

I had to do it- WIN10

 After the storms coming through- straight line winds during a hail storm, which knocked over one of the 50' Post oaks.

We were intermittently without power almost all day.

I'm now on a Lenovo WIN10--which completely sucks.
I can't do anything without having to make a windows account- fuck you very much Bill Gates.
I'd include a picture of the said tree, but I can't add pictures to my picture folder without fucking making a microsoft account. . Fuck you very much Microsquish.


I learned my lesson on the last computer, so I've been trying to download a restore flash drive for the last . FOUR FUCKING HOURS.

I'm able to get to gmail with some of my links and it's 1847 now (6:47PM for you unfamiliar with real operating time) and haven't been on FB all day.

As of now, it's been over four hours and the bar says it's still got 33% more to go.

I'm going to go digging back through the posts and find the one with all the Linux suggestions- I need to buy another flash drive for that,,,, so tomorrow.



EDIT TO ADD-
The reason I had to go was the old one was getting really  glitchy and the repeated outages must have been enough to knock out the internet part. Everything else was able to connect.
So I replaced it with this Lenovo from the bottom shelf that I bought several weeks ago just because I knew this was coming.

Now that I'm at least able to surf the net, I can't get this fucking thing to recognize when I put a CD full of pictures in. It opens and downloads to the laptop in WIN7.

So again fuck you very much Microsoft.

Making hay while the sun shines.

 I wonder how many of my younger readers (if I have any) understands what that means.

This isn't about taking opportunities while you can, it's about hay bales.

With the alternating downpours and droughts we've had this last year, there's been a hard time finding hay- round bales especially.
The donkeys are hungry and broke into the storage area to eat the oldest s box of saved books and they're starting to strip bark off the younger mesquite trees.

SO... I was supposed to pick up a round bale today, but the thunderstorm we had last night made it too muddy for him to get to them today. Maybe tomorrow.


So I bought three square bales. for 7 donkeys and two horses.

Six donkey decided they were going to share one bale when Lottie saw an open one.....
Then there's Clementine who has to be different.


That green you see is mostly pigweed and not forage.

"Why" he asked rhetorically-

 "Are Democrats so opposed to honest voting?"


"The law would — among other changes — make mail-in voting more difficult by requiring voters to give extra information, bar local officials from sending absentee ballot applications to anyone who did not request one, and end after-hours and drive-through voting."

AND- since I can only find ball ammo right now, I'm going to need st get a reloading set-up so I can make bullets like Extreme Cavitator I ran across.

For you who work on vehicles

I'm sure you've noticed this phenomenon before....


Smoke Theory of Electronic Devices
Introduction-
From the basic concept of transmission of electrical energy in the form of smoke, a better understanding of the mysteries of electrical components, especially those manufactured by Lucas, a British manufacturer, is provided.
 
Theory of smoke-
Smoke is the thing that makes electrical circuits work; we know this to be true because every time one lets the smoke out of an electrical system, it stops working. This has been verified repeatedly through empirical testing by countless EE212 students. When, for example, the smoke escapes from an electrical component (i.e., say, a Lucas voltage regulator or a 741 Op Amp), it will be observed that the component stops working. The function of the wire harness is to carry the smoke from one device to another; when the wire harness "springs a leak", it lets all the smoke out of the system. Once this happens, nothing works afterwards. For example, starter motors were frowned upon in British automobiles for many years, largely because they consume large quantities of smoke, requiring very large wires.
 
Conclusion
It has been noted that Lucas components are possibly more prone to electrical leakage than either Bosch or generic Japanese electrics. Experts point out that this is because Lucas is British and all things British leak. British engines leak oil, shock absorbers, hydraulic forks and disk brakes leak fluid, British tyres leak air, and the British defense establishment leaks secrets...so, naturally, British electrics leak smoke.

The World turned Upside Down

Tradition has it that it was the  tune the Brits played at the surrender at Yorktown.


But when shit happens, it can be as quick and unexpected as a pipeline getting hacked.

The Colonial pipeline put almost 1/4 of the country on -at least- limited supplies of gasoline (why it affected airliners using Kerosene I don't know) and showed how some people act.

They probably stored that excess gas with their horde of TP. 

OR a shut down of an entire world because of an overhyped virus.

We're stocking up on food

We have well water- need a generator to supply it (we're working on that)
We don't really use enough gas to have a tank in the yard

Shortages and disruptions are still happening because of lingering affects from the shutdown.

People still are not going to work because the .GOV is paying them not to with our tax Dollars.

Supplies are still on back order- which is changing the dynamics of everything, including used pickups. I was starting to look for one about halfway into the plandemic shutdown, but decided to wait a while. Then I watched the prices rise as the new truck shortage went on............ because of a chip shortage. 

Now I'm seeing the prices of 3/4 ton trucks where I wouldn't pay if there were half the miles on them.


SO............. I'm thinking hard at a restomod. If I have to pay that much for a used truck, why not got with something with style?
I can get a '64 C-10 or 72 F-100 or even a 78 Dodge for less (nothing is cheap anymore) and throw in a crate motor and 5 speed manual -with modern conveniences for a little more than the going price of a 2500 Silverado with 140K miles on it.

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 :-)

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.

 That word would be-

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.

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.
