Re: COVID-19 Chat Thread

I have 3m half face respirator for work, and those are not guaranteed to seal against unshaven faces. Speaking of which, one of these arrived with me today. ( Not from that seller - with feedback like that I wouldn't ever consider an order, even if they were selling $100 bills for $5.) [Image to be...

Re: Stippling: needle point for gun nuts

I finished it up last night while I was in a Microsoft Teams meeting. Won't bother with pictures unless someone wants to see something specific. Afterwards a mounted the forward portion of the Magpul handstop kit, there's no reason to slip in front of the muzzle now. 14" bbl with ~1" exposed thread ...

Grey man vs logos and insignia

So this issue has come up double fold in my life over the past few months and I'd love to hear the hive mind's thoughts on it. This will be a long winded post, suck it up or move along. First, I'm on the board of directors for my handgun club. We at the club have two logos we commonly print on merch...

Re: Homemade Face Masks

When I get home I wrap the N95 in aluminum foil and put it in my oven for one hour at 170* F. Don't take this as medical advice, but I believe this will sanitize the mask. No idea what life to expect out of using a mask like this, but I'm trying to stretch my (tiny) supply as far as possible. there...

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

I kind of took a mental health brake this weekend. Besides reaching out to a few friends who I don't usually chat with online to check on them, and casually scrolling Facebook a few times, I have tried to do things that were not revolving around CoVid19. I make a mean Manhattan these days, and in a ...

Re: The Perfect COVID-19 Theme Song

I'm fairly new to using Spotify. But I think if I build a playlist there I should be able to share it here.

Also, the police, don't stand so close to me.

Here's almost all of the suggested songs up to this post:

These masks are to protect others from your oral/nasal droplets.
And if you take the quarter million confirmed cases, extrapolate the three to four times number of unknown cases plus the asymptomatic carriers, you might understand why the CDC is encouraging everyone to wear a mask in public.

I'm still working, my wife is still working. Which means there's still a dozen plus productive things I should be doing with a Saturday morning. But amid all the world's chaos, I want to do something mindless and distracting. So Ive been wanting to try my hand at stippling the pump of my 870. Set ev...

My wife had some 35%, I believe it came from an ethnic hair supply store before we met. You buy it by the gallon, and risk destroying anything it contacts. Not something to be played with lightly.

Re: COVID-19 Thread

How do we bug out from an overly infected LA to anyplace safer if a travel ban and martial law is in effect? Many of you live in lesser infected areas. OR at least rural areas where you can more easily get out of the way of this thing. This right here is the biggest, nastiest fallacy we face, the c...

Re: COVID-19 Thread

Do you think we'll get to the point where they ban travel state to state? That gets into an area that would see a lot of legal challenges as being unconstitutional I think. What about under martial law? Just curious. Canada's eastern provinces are closed. But they're small provinces with few (read:...
