This time difference makes all my posts out of sync :(
While you ladies are putting the industrial world in its place I want to talk about Anderson Shelters.
Growing up after the war I can only just remember our Anderson Shelter when my dad took it down and returned the garden back to its original state. My sister apparently refused to go in it and said if she was going to be bombed she would rather be bombed in comfort. I have often wondered about how effective the Anderson Shelter would be, to me it seems like camping out in the back yard on the assumption that bombs are going to hit your house but not your garden.... :?
For houses with no back yard the government provided the Morrison Shelter which was just a reinforced table/cage that two adults and one child could sleep under while Adolf rained bombs down on your locality. Both my mom and my sister were at different times shot at by the Luftwaffe, being born in 48 I missed all the fun..... :(

BTW I was once a shop steward in the Transport and General Workers Union and have witnessed many of the things you guys have, glad to be retired...

Your sister had more sack than most dudes in today's world. That's what I always liked about the Brits. Good show!

Hey! I'd say the British government went all out. When I grew up, we got told to "Duck and Cover" in the event we got nuked by the Russians.

A win for GK!

Well I'm up from my Monday power nap. Swillin some coffee then it's off to do battle. They really blew it on this one. They said maybe 3-5 inches. We have about 8-10 inches on the ground now and it's supposed to keep going till 7pm tonight. Then Wednesday they are SAYING we are gonna get a foot. Hope they don't mess that up the same way. :shock:
Overall we are way behind in snowfall this year. Maybe a month behind. Same with ice on the lakes. We haven't had a lot of cold either. Coldest I've had at the house was the other morning at 6 below. We sometimes tickle that number around hunting season on a normal year.
Think I may be done getting the Gladiator into camp. :D

Thanks GK for that wonderful second hand experience...(near first hand)....yea....the TV showed where people with an IQ above 80 would pile lots of dirt and sandbags on top of their Anderson shelters.....they were already half buried.......had I been there at the time I would have put mine entirely in the ground......if I had access to the basement I'd dig a tunnel and stay in the basement cubby hole......

Well...Jayster is sleeping...GK is being GK and the .45 L. Colt dude is cutting meat......Did you know that high end bosses get a bonus every year depending on how much money they save? -----Z-A

GK WINS!!!! and just for today and the great chap GK is.......drum roll.......I AWARD HIM AN ANDERSON SHELTER!!!!!!

Well done GK!!! Second place prize is the Morrison shelter.....whew! I'd be afraid in that one.....were people always that stupid?

Yes sir, 45!

If they'd of just called it 360 Creedmoor, it could have been the best cartridge EVER. Shoot over hills, around corners, through a 3ft oak, then through 12 deer and drop them all instantly. It would also field dress them and package the meat.

Well.....what I do know from experience.....yea, I fix stuff, know things and do things.....do you MR Erie? :D .....is that a 180 out of a Ruger Maximum will knock over the 80 pound rams at 200 meters....easily......my records show a 180 Hornady chronographs 1425. I'm sure it will go hotter with slower powders or what the factories use. I stopped with 4227 when the groups started looking like rifle groups.....

Yea.....I fix stuff and I know things.

As always Six I applaud You. I Love looking at gun shows here or on the internet. I see mostly Dead Men's Guns. You and Shrapnel have more Good stuff than anybody within 100 miles of here. I don't envy people who have nice stuff, Good For them. It's all fun to look at, I wish it could talk . I have more than I can ever shoot or use up in My lifetime. while You were going to Shows or matches all those years and buying up All investment guns I was working six days trying to stay under the radar and survive. when the Grocery stores opened on Sundays in '81 My job went from O.K. to a miserable living hell . Now I work one day a week more for revenge as much as anything else, the same people who stuck it to Me see Me and I smile and say "See Ya next week". :lol: .
Mainly I survive ,shoot a little when I can, keep the stove's going and try to take care of things around here.

Whoo!
Just got back from camp. Still got the truck in. I couldn't believe it. When I started in I had it in 4hi with the rear locker on and it went easier than it did the last time. I couldn't believe it. It was dragging its guts too.
We got a fire going and boiled up. Had a coffee while we planned some projects for the camp and the dooryard. We hung around till the snow slid off the roof.
I figured when we went out I'd pack the yard and make a few trips in and out to get it packed. I got the dooryard packed pretty good but when I went to go back out the road it was evident the conditions had changed. It warmed up just enough so the snow on the sides of the ruts wouldn't hold the tires in. No biggie, except that the packed tracks were built up higher than the rest of the snow, so when you slipped off the front wheels would climb back in but the rears wouldn't and it would keep crabbing down the road. Once I got out, I knew a smart person would thank their lucky stars and go home, so you boys know what I did. I turned around and made 3 more trips in and out. I figure it will actually help once it freezes. If I ran it in 4lo with both lockers and let it idle it would crawl right along and not spin a wheel. I'm more impressed with this rig all the time.

It's all just "stuff" 45 Colt......but the difference between my stuff and Sharapnels stuff is he paid what they were worth.....where's the glory?...anybody with money can buy anything ever made.....no challenges.....ask Mike Tyson.......just try "finding" the stuff and then paying .30 on the dollar ....then you did something.....

Now, onto da Jayster. ......how come you didn't use "ole Blue" to break track...you have a winch on that one don't you?.....or maybe I missed something and you put the winch on the Gladiator........how far in is the cabin?.....can me and 45 come next time, I can ride in the back and 45 Colt can walk ahead of us to break track......he can wear lead snowshoes..

Sound like a plan?---006

Wow!! I have lead snowshoes here but the EPA won't let us use them anymore.....I'll keep them just in case I need to drop some one off deep in the lake. :shock:
It just occurred to Me that if Me an Oldwin was to raid some colt collectors house in His Buffalo Coat We could weld all those old things gathering dust in to some "light weight snow shoes"....... I'll walk up and down the trail all day ,Oldwin can take a bunch of pic's . next thing Ya know We is on pawn stars ,Sam Colt made these Tracks. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: .

Re: Chairmen of the Politically Incorrect

Come on man! You know I put my Jeep up in the winter. Thats why I bought the Gladiator Rubicon. So I had a rig in the winter that wasn't useless. Yeah, it needs a winch the way I use it. Considering a receiver setup. Where it's a daily there is no need to have it on all the time. Especially in the salt and crud in the winter.
Most people see the Gladiator as overpriced when compared to a full size half ton pickup. And if all you do is drive on the road and maybe pull a camper, I guess it may be. They way I use a truck, its more than worth it. What I've been doing this winter, none if those trucks would stand a chance if making it in there, and would probably sustain damage if they tried.

Yea.....well,....well......I didn't know you actually take them off the road in the winter....doesn't it make sense to use the old stuff in the winter?......I saw a full camo Gladiator the other day.......

For breaking trail

45.....in my line of business we don't use lead shoes...we use "cement shoes"....a lot cheaper......that is funny, watching TV about these mobsters and the wiretaps the Feds use on them......"yea, Tony, we have work to do tonight. We have to give Vito a new pair of cement shoes"..........The really funny thing about is they talk about murdering people like we say, "Got to go to the store and get some Skoal." :D

We had some wicked winds last night that I didn't notice until I took Miss Apple out for a walk....snapped the flagpole right in half.

Supposed to get a mega storm of rain tomorrow......30-40 miles north is snow and changing to rain. ...I hate the winter

Nope. Not stuff that can't be replaced. Mint, no rust TJs are worth big money now.
You run the new stuff in the winter. Its junk and won't last like the old stuff. It's full of electronics, and when it starts having problems you pretty much have to just throw em away.

My Jeep is in the back of the garage the first time they salt the roads. All cleaned up and on jackstands. I start it every few weeks, pull it in 4wd, and let everything spin for about 5 miles in 3rd gear until everything is all warmed up.
If I'd run it winters since 2003, it would have been gone years ago.

Hey! Vito #45! Yo! You out there Vito 45! Hey, Giovanni and Antonio are looking for you...said to meet them at the back of the meat room where you work.....they have some cutting and grinding to do.....

Jay...for real? Your educating me....are you saying the TJ's will hold up longer than the JL's or JK's....My TJ is a bare bones Rubi with roll up windows and I always did plan on keeping it till the end......maybe that's why a half dozen people want it......

Yours looks really good considering the true off roading you've done with it....mine does too but it's never been off roading unless you consider dirt roads off roading which it's not...

Yup. You got it. TJs are the last "real Jeeps". An actual step down tub, no BS electronics, and the same wheelbase dimensions as a CJ7. Yes, that's why dudes in the know are trying to buy it.
I wheel mine, but I take extremely good care of it.

It looks like Adam Schiff...a.k.a. "Pencil neck"...look at the warts. Schiff has a big one on his nose.....

I don't like touching toads...don't know why....I do all the time but I don't like it....we have them all over the place and I leave em be as they are insect eaters big time......wonder what kind of insects this thing eats, probably small dogs......they are cold and clammy.......the one pictured is the biggest road in the world.....some kind of a cane toad.....

I have piles of brush out back in the pasture that I won't burn because it's loaded with toads...

Well gk, nobody ever said be nice. The General Forum rule as per Paco was be polite. You can be politely mean. Watch politics, it is an art form. ;-) . Now further stipulated in this forum in no cursing or advocating violence against anyone. I guess you can kick your tractor if you want.

A critical examination of the grammar used may allow for other options.

Depends on how the new sheriff in town interprets things I suppose.

Truth can be nice, mean or in between.

I'm driving along bout 30 miles an hour coming down into the bottom and there is a pickup completely on the other side of the guardrail in the woods. how fast He was going to get over that is a mystery to Me but I bet it was a Hell of a ride. :lol: .

Well, i prepped a bunch of 44 brass this morning. Cleaned up the gunroom a little, then went out and straightened up some stuff in the garage.
Then, I figured I'd run the sled a little, but I had quite a time getting the trailer opened up and tilted back. Lot of snow on it and it was frozen in. Then I had quite a time getting the sled started. I guess it hadn't been started since hunting season. And, we had a ton of Seafoam in the fuel. That may have been some of it. I ran it around awhile and it ran well. Good thing, we may need it to get into camp after this next snowstorm.

Haha no that was a picture from a couple years ago.
We didn't even put the shack out this year. Ice was late coming this year. We have a pop up shack we use if we want to travel around and fish somewhere different than where our shack is. If we go this year, we will use that.

You may not believe me but yesterday due to boredom I watched a Western that first appeared in 1923 it was a silent movie but I laughed all the way through it, especially the little boy chewing tobacco. It would cost millions to make a movie like this nowadays anyway it's called "The Covered Wagon" it's been colourised not that you would really notice.... :lol: I found it on YouTube and can highly recommend it if you you have a strange sense of humor.

Holy smokes what a day! I jumped up at 5:00 and ran out to crank up the snowblower. Ran that puppy steady till after 8. I was wiped. Did my place and everything at my folks place. Man, I was soaked right down to my skivvies.
The wind is up here now too.

Stopped over this afternoon to see if they needed anything and to mooch a coffee. Wound up putting a rubber mat under the sink. Had to cut around all the pipes. The drain was big enough I could cut it out. The feeds were only half inch and too small to cut. I stewed a minute on it. What's the best way to cut that......?
Hey! I ran down cellar and got a 1943 headstamped .50BMG casing. Worked slick. A 50 cal. cookie cutter!

Jayster,
Geeze......you had the whole world cleaned up and organized by the time I got outta bed. Well done son!!! I decided to adopt you as my son so it'll be less taxes you have to pay when you come to pick up all of the old Colts after I kick the bucket...well, the ones that are left.

Yes son, empty cases make excellent punches. a buddy of mine when I was working was an engine builder of race cars......man! He had a '65 chevy that he whittled down to about 2K pounds with a big block 454 that was bored and stroked......just for racing....unstreetable with the 18" slicks....oh! My buddy.....well, as he did a lot of custom parts etc. he had to make custom gaskets that had no holes. I used to give him .223's, 30-06's, and 45-70's cut down a bit to where the brass was thicker and then I sharpened them with a deburring tool.

As you know, as a redneck hillbilly junk man (not guns) I keep lots of odds and ends laying around......copper, steel, and thick PVC sharpened up make nice hole cutters..... Thick 1/2" copper will punch out a nice hole on plywood.

Ya know...I have not been paying close attention to SAA prices for some time......I just got on Guns International on 3rd gen Colts. CRAZY prices....3G's for a run-of-the-mill gun. Hank Williams pair of 38-40's ....nothing special..I think they were 5.5's. $20,000. Hank is a cool dude but he's not God like me and you are....20K...

He's either broke or dead....strange he is selling his stuff.

Haha yup. Colts are nuts buddy.
I got a chuckle this afternoon and thought of you. I get this text from a guy at work. Now, I know who he is, but that's about it. He must have got my number from someone and texts me cause he is looking for a peep sight for an Winchester model 47 (I assume an 80A), but he didn't bother to research what he needed. I guess he figured I could do that for him too.
The funny thing is, if I had one or found one, he would give my number to 200 people so I could do the same thing for them.
I texted back and said he'd have a tough time finding one of those, and then will pay dearly. Geez....if I hear anything, I'll let you know.

Yea...typical idiot who is representative of most people....he texts you, don't even know you, and then EXPECTS you to do the research and find something for him.......screw him and the horse he rode in on......

This guy asks me if he can fix his shotgun, some junk Stevens pump.....I look at it, take the gun apart, see what's wrong and then hunt down the part from Numrich, pay for the part...blah..blah......a month later I call him up and I explain it all...the part was something like $17 so he comes over and hands me $17.

As for that squawk box two posts above, do that guy a favor and tell him my pockets are shallower than that thing he has that he calls a brain. :D
