   Kono  "Follow the money" applies often enough to make it a popular first theory. And maybe it's right. But I don't remember them bringing it back the last time it was fundraising time.
So I'm just going to say 'thanks' and leave it at that.

   Doublesharp posted on The Range 2nd Amendment  How do you like my newest shtf rifle? Ruger Ranch rifle stainless .223/5.56 cal, same as an AR but not in evil black. My 2nd mini 14 with a carved stock. Friends don't let friends buy no ugly guns.

   Doublesharp posted on Main Page The Lobby  Anybody heard from spidey? Has gone from a prolific poster to none at all. I hope all is well but I miss the insights, critical thinking and humor that spidey brought to the arena.

   Betty Jean  I hadn't noticed Spidey hadn't been posting but I should have, as usually my posts and his, when I posted, were pretty close together. We're both up early.

   Doublesharp posted on The Range 2nd Amendment  Not much going on here, for sure. How about a picture of a Winchester 1885 single shot in 40-82 caliber. The most potent cartridge there was in 1891, the year this old timer was made. 28" octagonal barrel, weight of about 9 lbs. Carrying this all day wasn't for sissies.

   Doublesharp posted on The Range 2nd Amendment  MadMac, I also call magazines mags but they are also correctly called clips. My proof is the instruction label on this Marlin Mod45 acp camp carbine. To close bolt, remove clip, pull bolt handle back, and release.

Damn it! Lock this pos up for at least 6 months and take his gun rights away forever!

EVANSVILLE — A Boonville man, who had allegedly been drinking, accidentally fired a .45 caliber handgun at the Tri-State Gun and Knife Show at the National Guard Amory Saturday afternoon.

Joshua M. Wilkinson, 30, faces a preliminary felony charge of criminal recklessness after he allegedly pulled the trigger of his firearm trying to close the hammer after buying a new holster for it, according to an Evansville Police Department affidavit.

The bullet hit the floor and broke in several pieces. Two people, a 72-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy suffered minor injuries when they were struck by fragments of the bullet.

According to the police affidavit, Wilkinson removed the round from the gun and applied a flex tie to the weapon when he entered the armory. The show’s organizer, Tom Allman said there are signs posted prohibiting loaded weapons.

“He took a clip out of his pocket, cut off the band and loaded the gun himself,” Allman said. “... He’s not allowed to load the gun in my building so he violated all of our instructions right then.”

According to the affidavit, officers noticed Wilkinson had bloodshot eyes and could smell alcohol on his breath. His blood-alcohol content tested at .05, according to a portable breathalyzer test.

Allman said the gun and knife show, will continue today as scheduled.

   Doublesharp posted on Gardening & Landscaping  Here's an old shot of my tomato patch featuring Mr Mcgregor's battery powered electric fence. My neighborhood has several black walnut trees and a huge squirrel population that consumes them. They used to enjoy munching on my best tomatoes but no longer. The fence is powered by 2 D cell batteries and the shock is similar to a static electricity charge. The front 2 wires are hot and the back 18" chicken wire is to slow the varmint down so they come in contact with the front wires. When a newby hits the fence they become very acrobatic trying to escape the shock and they learn quick. They give the mater patch a wide berth.

   Rake King  I agree as well. I had a neighbor who actually build a fully enclosed fenced garden,
not just sides, but a top as well, just to keep the little "robbers" out of his garden. It was very uncomfortable to work in, I like Doublesharp's idea better. The patent office is full of bird feeder ideas just to keep squirrels from stealing food. My neighbor has a different remedy...a BB gun. Course when he's off duty the squirrels have their way. I heard once that they actually hit the tomatos just for the water inside, and if you put a pan of water in your garden they will leave your tomato alone....sorry to say, it didn't work. Happy gardening.

   StarFire  The squirrels seem to be avoiding our deck since I put out owl statues and dusted all the containers with a heavy layer of ground hot cayenne pepper from the Korean Market. They’ve even left my lettuce (their favorite) alone. And, they aren’t bothering my bird feeder since I put pepper in the bird seed.

I forgot the asparagus in another bed. The squirrels dug up the roots, but did not eat them.

Be warned... do NOT attempt to spread the pepper on a breezy day. Pepper in the eyes is not fun.

   Doublesharp  I tried the pellet gun approach until I realized my misses (every shot) were perforating the vinyl siding on my back building. Doh!!!

This is the 3rd or 4th year that I've had the elec fence and the squirrels and other varmints stay out, including my little dogs. Barney touched his nose to the wire, gave a little yelp and does not go near it now. fast learner.

What finally set me off was the little beggers taking 2 bites out of a mature green tomato, tossing it and doing the same to another. Cost about $150 to protect 15-20 plants and I consider it money well spent.

   Doublesharp posted on The Range 2nd Amendment  The S&W M&P is my choice. I keep the M&P40c with an X-grip as a nightstand gun and use the 296 airweight 44special Centennial as a dog walking gun. My everyday carrygun is a S&W mod 337 scandium j frame revolver. Weight does matter to me. The 337 goes about 14 oz loaded so it goes in my right front pocket, the 296 at about 22 oz is better in a holster or jacket pocket and, at about 2 lbs for the 40c and 15 rounds, it stays by the bed.

   Doublesharp posted on The Range 2nd Amendment  For when you have a big alley to sweep. Holds 14 rounds of 12 gauge

PREVIEW: Kel-Tec Shotgun (KSG)

The time for secrecy is nearing its end. This SHOT Show, Kel-Tec will be revealing its next ground-breaking product: the KSG (Kel-Tec Shotgun).

The KSG is our first entry into the shotgun market. The size, shape and design are similar to the currently available Kel-Tec RFB rifle, but the KSG ejects downward, instead of forward. The KSG weighs 6.9lbs and is as compact as legally possible with a 26.1" overall length and an 18.5" cylinder bore barrel. Even with this compact size, the internal dual tube magazines hold an impressive 14 rounds of 12 gage 2-3/4" rounds (7 per tube). The simple and reliable pump action feeds from either the left or right tube. The feed side is manually selected by a lever located behind the trigger guard. The lever can be positioned in the center detent in order to easily clear the chamber without feeding another round from either magazine. A cross bolt style safety blocks the sear, and the pump release lever is located in front of the trigger guard.

The pump includes an under Picatinny rail for the mounting of a forward grip, or a light or laser. The included top Picatinny sight rail will accept many types of optics or iron sights. Forward and rear sling loops are built in, and a basic sling is included. The soft rubber butt pad helps to tame recoil.

MSRP has not been officially been set, but we are looking at the $800.00 range.

   Doublesharp posted on The Range 2nd Amendment  I wish all firearm enthusiasts could have been with me this past weekend. The Louisville National GunDay gun show was one of the best in history. The tables were full of quality vendors and the crowd was backed up a couple hundred deep to get in until early afternoon. Several thousand attendees and money was changing hands. I snagged a couple of rimfire rifles, a Tuarus model 63 .22lr, almost an exact clone of the Winchester 63 and then I picked up a Marlin 883 stainless .22mag. Both guns are discontinued and both are like new. There may well come a time when a good .22 will be worth it's weight in canned spam ;-)
