    Broken Stuff

    I used to race outboards when I was a kid. My Dad had a Mercury dealership and he built me what was called a "Pumpkin Seed" . It was a small hydro and a special factory made "super 10 hp " engine. Would about 25 mph. Pretty fast (back then) for a 10 year old! I have a lot of mice in the rv...

    That is a strange looking outboard engine. Took me awhile to figure out what it is, but I finally saw the prop.

    Pistol case - harbor freight

    I don't plan on it as I carry my 2 target pistols to matches in an old aluminum camera case that I used for storing my old 35mm camera & lenses in when I was out in my boat It's waterproof and almost indistructable. The only disadvantage is it is heavy!

    Where would you move to if you had your choice of any western State to live in?

My old house in the city in California which we bought new in 1970...

    Pistol case - harbor freight

    If you don't mind, what did you pay for it? What brand is it? I looked on HF website and couldn't find that exact case.

    458 Socom

    I finally had to give up shooting the Quigley and the 1000 yard matches because my eyes just couldn't handle the sights.

    458 Socom

    I shot a Sharps in 45-70 with black powder in 1000 yard matches. In my experience, recoil is totally related to bullet weight, the heavier the bullet, then heavier the recoil.

    Where would you move to if you had your choice of any western State to live in?

    This post was started almost 3 years ago. I read all the posts again and they were really interesting and the ones I posted are still true today. BUT the big change here in sw Colorado is the price of property. I bought my property ( 6.3 acres) in 1994 for $50,000 including 5 shares of...

    Knives

    I love old knives. They are mostly high carbon steel and take and hold an edge really well. They do rust tho. I have a couple too as my uncle was a butcher too.

    Burger, breakfast sausage & brats.

    I used to use pork shoulder roast for fat and added meat. A buddy in Alaska told me about the bacon ends & pieces. We have a local smaller grocery store and the butcher ordered my a case of ends & pieces. 30# in 2# frozen packages. I paid $90.00 or $3.00/pound. You are right about the different...
