Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

That sounds pretty rad. Do they have anything that will also pair up with an anemometer yet?

Re: Quazi's self-sufficiency projects

Rough start to chickens this summer. We lost one due to an accident (he managed to get himself wedged in behind a wall somehow). One just died, no idea why. Another got sick and was acting like she couldn't walk, but after isolating her for a few days she got better. Then a couple days ago a falcon ...

Ruger makes a 22/45 Lite in the Mk IV line, Quazi.

I'm looking at either one of those or a Mk IV 22/45 Tactical myself.
Yeah, what I wasn't sure of is if the different grip angle might make me shoot it worse.

I'd try one before buying it but I don't know anyone who owns one.

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

I've been looking at the 22/45 Lite. It's appealing since I'd like something to take along for grouse when I'm out moose hunting. On the other hand, I might just go with a Mk IV even though it's heavy since I've always shot the Mk series better than most other .22 handguns and I've never shot a 22/4...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Sighted in my H&R 999 yesterday. I got it pretty much just because of its looks. I've always thought top breaks were neat, plus I like the look of the vent rib and that weird little trigger guard extension (which actually just gets in the way of my grip). On the negative side it has the worst trigge...

Re: Quazi's self-sufficiency projects

Good looking birds! Look on the heavy end as well! We picked up over 200lbs of processed “organic” chicken for less than 60¢ a lb (processed as in gutted and plucked). That out off my plan on buying meat chickens this year. So meat chickens will be planned for next year. Thanks! They were pretty ta...

Re: Quazi's self-sufficiency projects

We had more roosters than we needed. Put off butchering them since at fall they were still pretty small and then during the winter they didn't cause much trouble. Now that it's been warming up it's become a constant brawl so we butchered two of them today. One other is going to a friend of the famil...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

Called the local health clinic to see how they were doing on masks. They said that they weren't running low, but any donations would be appreciated. I bought a big bag of N95s a few years back for emergencies. For a minute I thought "well if they don't need them then why wouldn't I keep them?" but t...

Re: Ruth Stout Garden

I don't have any first-hand experience with mulch, as we usually don't have much problems with erosion and don't lack for rain most years (and we do have problems with slugs and getting soil warm enough). It should work great for potatoes. We normally pile up dirt on ours a couple times a summer to ...

I haven't done anything the last couple weeks except for shovel snow. I've learned that if I do 5+ hours a day I do something to my back that makes my hands go numb, so I've been trying to avoid doing that. The snow is deep enough that we can no longer move the bulldozer through the ditch, which mea...

Re: Covid-19 Leads to Surge of Guns & Ammo Sales

I was kind of surprised by the SA trigger. I was expecting something more like a SA revolver trigger or a 1911. It's not terrible, but not good either.

Also, the sights are tiny. I could probably replace them, but I don't necessarily want to spend much on a pistol I'm probably not going to keep.

I bought a surplus Beretta 92s because they were so inexpensive, plus I had never shot a DA/SA like that and I figured having a 9mm for inxepensive plinking would be fun. I don't really care for it though. Maybe now is the time to sell it. His experience has been interesting; he said he cannot keep ...

As far as handgun ammo, only thing they had plenty of was .40 and .38 special for defense loads. Fortay FTW every panic.... it has been amazingly consistent. I remember back during the 2012 panic they ran out of 10mm locally, and didn't get any more for a looooong time (I"m guessing the ammo manufa...
