  1. I used to own an Ithaca/SKB over/under trap gun with 30" barrels. It would turn a rising clay pigeon to dust. You always kept the target on top of the bead in your sight picture. To aim at a scatterboard target, you would aim the bead on the bottom edge of 8-1/2 x 11 paper to concentrate the pattern in the center of the paper.
  2. I live about 25 miles west of Henderson, NC. There are bear sightings in the area but not many. I don't think it would be much of a concern.
  3. Used to measure parts using a Helmel Engineering CMM that had a 48" x 90" working envelope. That was back in the 90's.
  4. "I" before "e", except after "c", and like "a" as in neighbor and weigh.
  5. I just noticed where the "H" intersects the "i", two of the crossbar corners are radiused and two are square, on opposite corners from each other.
  6. Congratulations. This is something to be proud of. I'm the 5th generation on this farm and I'm proud of that.
  7. I gave a girl a ride in my wagon Now she crawled in and took control She was tired as her mind was draggin And I said get some sleep-and dream of rock and roll Chevy Van by Sammy Johns
  8. The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down Of the big lake they called 'gitche gumee' The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead When the skies of November turn gloomy With a load of iron ore twenty-six thousand tons more Than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty That good ship and crew was a bone to be chewed When the gales of November came early
  9. “I’m traveling down the road and flirtin with disaster, I got the pedal to the floor and my life is runnin faster” - Flirtin With Disaster, Molly Hatchet Man, that is a good one Sledgehammer. I loved me some Molly Hatchet back in the day.
  10. I'm shufflin' thru the Texas sand But my head's in Mississippi My Head’s in Mississippi - ZZ Top
  11. We drove all night to Billings, Montana Flew into Utah and slept there all day I can't remember stopping in Denver Yeah, I live my illusion that somebody needs me to play The Devil Named Music by Chris Stapleton
  12. I agree with doing something like cutting wood - something that is constructive while being destructive. Shattering TV's and splattering paint are not constructive. I think it will lead to that type of behavior occurring outside of "rage rooms".
