Re: Photo of the day

Our local supermarket had a really nice salad bar until there was a Grateful Dead concert near our town. The critters that showed up for that and camped all over the place would come in and graze at...

Re: How much of an ass whipping are you expected to risk?

I grew up in Sacramento, CA. Last year there was a shooting in which a black man was shot and killed by two police officers. A couple well known organizations brought in lots of protesters. At one...

Re: I hate *&%$#@*&! robo solicitation calls!

The most common one now in our area is the automated voice that says you recently stayed in one of their hotels and have won a vacation to a luxury resort. If you don't answer they hang up when your...

Re: I hate *&%$#@*&! robo solicitation calls!

What bugs me is that they set it up so your caller ID shows it as a local number so you'll answer. Once it even came up as our local school district, which is where my wife works. I answered and it...

Monterey's looking good!

Went to Monterey with the wife for our 30th anniversary the past couple days. Got a chance to jump in for an hour or so at Otter's Cove. The ocean was the flattest I've ever seen, but the welcome...

Re: Spearguns are dangerous

Darn right spearguns are dangerous weapons, at least in California. Some years ago it became legal to spear Stripers in the American River. The anglers threw a huge fit, not wanting spearos in the...

Trip report: Fort Bragg

We went on our annual vacation to Bragg, arriving June 25th and left on July 5th. As luck would have it, the waves were huge from the time we arrived until the night before we left. Of course, it...

Re: 130 Rob Allen Rollergun Review

Yep, that's the truth. My "long" gun for the Mendocino coast is a RA 70. I'm headed there for our annual 10 day family vacation in a couple weeks and will probably use my little Riffe 33" C-0 most...

I think under banded guns shoot high.

Well at least a couple of mine do. My most used gun in NorCal is a basic RA 70 with a 7 mm, single flopper shaft. When I used it with a 3/4" band it shot great, but when I switched to a single 5/8"...

Re: The destruction of Boy Scouts

Thanks for the kind words Max. I remember meeting you and your sons years ago at Caspar and you too have done an outstanding job. Your sons are fine young men indeed!

On that note, I'm sending...

Re: The destruction of Boy Scouts

I think I achieved the things I have in life, especially my outdoor skills, because of my bad experience in Boy Scouts. Our camping and back packing trips were dismal. Our scoutmaster once asked me...

Re: The destruction of Boy Scouts

Max I have to be honest and also ashamed of myself. I was not supportive of them being in scouts at first. You see, when I was a kid I wanted to be a scout so my parents enrolled me in our local...

Re: The destruction of Boy Scouts

I'm just glad my sons made it through before it went down the toilet. We have a great troupe here in Truckee. My twin sons both made Eagle. Both also achieved bronze, silver, and gold palms. I'm...

Re: Small id bands dyneema knots popping out

It's time consuming but what I've been using when I don't just use the Rob Allen type wishbones is epoxy. I tie double overhand knots on each end of the wishbone like everyone else, but then I dip...

Re: Zeagle question

Thanks Capt. Gene!
I love the simplicity of a separate weight belt but my old back just can't take the opposing forces of the belt pulling down on the lower back and the bcd pushing up on the upper...

Zeagle question

I have about a 20 year old Zeagle ranger bcd. Never have gotten comfortable with the fit. I see that Zeagle offers a non-metal, apparently plastic back plate. Is it possible to put my Ranger...

Re: Seeking advice for my “overpowered” 110 railgun

Re: When you are asked to leave a store

No Marcus, I don't think we disagree here. I'm simply saying that I don't think race was the issue. They probably do have a policy in place and the manager may well have been following it. For all...

Re: When you are asked to leave a store

The way I see it, race should have had nothing to do with how the situation was and is being handled by upper management. If the Starbucks CEO has an issue with how people like those two guys was...

Re: Need help. Mares size
