Re: Pistol Brace Ban BoomStick 1 minute ago
Without getting into the NFA rules and all the other malarkey going on in this thread.......
here is my concern, referencing a bloggers post from the ShotShow when the ATF drafted this new rule and the exceptions given.
1) the ATF stated they will essentially give everyone a free tax stamp for the SBR, okay cool!
However, according to this blogger, the FBI told the ATF to stick it and will no longer perform the back ground checks. So no the ATF will have to do said back ground checks.
Apparently, they have 88days to complete background check or the application gets automatically denied. So no SBR Tax Stamp.
2) with millions of tax stamp apps being submitted, this seems like many will get denied due to background checks not being performed in less than 88days.
So you gave your information, address, gun serial number and pictures proving you have a brace to the ATF. Now they deny your tax stamp.
So do they enforce on you for an illegal NFA item? Why would they not. You just proved everything they need to create a case against you!

I will not be submitting for a free tax stamp. I will reconfigure my guns until the dust settles from this.

So they setup an entrapment sting and arrested a bunch of men willing to pay for sex? Sorry if I don't see how this is any kind of victory for those seeking to effect the ongoing sex trafficking issue. It has done nothing to slow down sex trafficking, just ruined the lives of many men who are guilty of being willing to pay for sex. Are those men in the wrong? I'd say that is subjective. I have never paid for sex (well, not outright anyway) and have no plans to, but who am I to vilify someone who is or the woman willing to take the money for it?

Are a few of them truly bad people that need to be off the streets? Sure, but I bet if you pull over 46 speeders you'll get one or two felonies to charge out of it..

They didn't get anyone selling underage girls, nobody pimping unwilling women. I just don't see how this was worth the time and effort it took to pull it off, and don't really see it as any kind of real victory for the movement. It's a PR stunt for the PD with no real benefit to the public.

Isn't prostitution illegal in Texas ?
Frankly I wouldn't want my son coached by someone who goes to hookers. Or have my kids at church guided by someone who also uses hookers.
What else are they doing ?

Sure, it's illegal in Texas. Not one prostitute or pimp was arrested in this entrapment sting though. So they got 46 guys who were willing to pay for sex off the street until they can make bail, on what, a misdemeanor charge? That's freaking laughable.

First offense is a felony. You lose your right to own a gun, among other things.

OK, I stand corrected on that point. I honestly wouldn't know, or care, what level of offense it is since I have no dog in that fight.

Lol. On our elk hunt, two of the guys were decked out in Kuiu gear. One ended up borrowing my Cabelas glommits and said they kept him warmer than his highdollar Kooey Northstar gloves.

I've got backup Cabela's gloves that my sons use....those pale in comparison to Kuiu or Sitka. I'll give you a story the exact opposite of yours. My buddy has Cabela's "waterproof" gloves that got wet in the snow and he borrowed my Sitka's and couldn't believe how warm and dry his hands stayed. I don't pay full price for anything Sitka or Kuiu, there are sales at the end of the season and before, but I recommend it.

yes, but every place benefits because its now managed in response to real data(population surveys, browse utilization etc) , . with that said properties with low densities may have a smaller allocation then what they use to under LO/lease boss thoughts.

the MLD program also exempts from AR’s and Doe days/permits(lamps).

not really any down sides if you want to manage your herd based on data relative to your property

Once it dries out again, I should be able to start making a dent in phase 1. My plan is to have 3 possible flooded areas (2 fields and 1 wooded area). each area should end up around 5 acres or so each.

My advice......rent a dozer! roflmao I started with a tractor and it was a beating! You can move way more dirt with a dozer. Once you have your levy's done, you can maintain and plant with a tractor. I normally pull boards and draw down in May. By July I have about 50% of my spot that reseeds itself. The other 50% I plow and reseed with millet. Smartweed didnt grow well in my place but the millet does. Just sucks that since I plant, I cant touch it or cut it or anything. Also noticed Jap millet grew in certain spots, but not everywhere I planted. Wild Millet did ALOT better. Came in super thick. Which makes for lots of food. So thats what Ive been sticking with. You're going to have alot of trial and error with it.

We also have a well that pumps water back in. I dont start kicking it on til September. Dont really care about Teal season. I'd rather keep my food for big ducks!

Re: Bar Fights psycho0819 49 minutes ago
Been in one bar fight in my life, really couldn't be called a fight. I used to hustle pool in bars in my late teens and early twenties so I had many close calls. One night a fella decided he wanted his money back and after a few words he came around the table at me. I grabbed the cue ball and smacked him upside the head, he dropped, and the bouncers dragged him out. I only hung out in bars to hustle money on the tables, my dad taught me early in life to take care of the bartender and bouncers and they'd take of me.

They are consumer direct so you get a lot value for the money. The Toric line is made in Japan so glass and quality is outstanding. I have a pair of their Toric binoculars and they are awesome.

IT means that the pellet smokers are not as good. It is easy to quantify. One produces better quality of meat than the other. You will never be able to change my mind on that. The white smoke will leave a more bitter taste. FYI - if you are using a thin cheap wal-mart stick smoker, you will run into the same problem as you will with a stick smoker. Heavy, white smoke. bitter meat. Ribs or chicken can withstand that smoke without getting as bitter, because they are in it for a shorter time. My BIL has a pellet smoker, and he can make a pretty good brisket on it. I have tasted pretty good brisket on other pellet smokers too. But when it comes to the best Pitmaster using a Pellet vs the best Pitmaster using a stick smoker, my money would be on the stick smoker every time. This argument is just like caliber arguments. A .308 guy arguing with a 7mm-08 guy over which cartridge is better. Neither one is going to change the other's mind.
