Re: Spending 2 weeks in DC - what can I bring?

I suggest finding a place to sleep, shoot, and eat close to but outside of DC... as long as it isn't MD.

NOVA is getting bad but it isn't nearly as bad as inside the beltway.

Re: New life starts to develop today!

We mixed in some barred rock hens the last time we raised new layers. Nice compliment to the RI reds. We get nearly white eggs to dark red/brown and everything in between. I find it interesting how different the dispositions of the different breeds are. We also raised meat birds last year - rock cor...

Re: What Do Democrats Have Against Guns and Gun Rights?

Republicans in the federal government are just as opposed to gun rights as Democrats are.

Re: Mitt Romney: The Last Republican President?

Thanks for passing it on PTK.

It is refreshing to see R.P. shaking up the system as much as he is.

Too bad he isn't as effective when debating as he is expressing himself in written word. He nailed it the other day though:

Re: Looking for .22LR subsonic ammo that will not cycle acti

It obviously isn't as quiet as they advertise, but it isn't as loud as any of the 3 brands of CB when fired in an unsupressed rifle with a 22" barrel. I believe they are using really fast burning powder. Same velocity, 33% more mass, more accurate (for several of my rifles), and less noise than CB. ...

When we tested the SCAR the operators had a lot of dislike for the holes. They made a huge flash at night and kicked up a lot of dust and sand when shot from the prone.
