  1. Think of the hurt this is putting on NY dealers of ammunition. Our Governor sure did as like what she has done to firearm producers like Remington. Seems to me the ambition is sporting goods stores should all become like a "PC" Dick's in this legislated scheme.
  2. I spent over 40 years of my life running large industrial facilities. I have operated turn of the century facilities like the operation that was located at Ilion. They were built at a different time where light collecting was more important than heating and cooling wasn't even a consideration except to reject heat. The costs to operate are extreme. If they were really serious about staying in NY, they would have built a new facility. However, expending that much capital in a State whose politics is bent on putting you out of business makes no sense. The real asset they are losing is the talent and tribal knowledge that has been in the making for over 100 years. And I doubt many of those people will move to Georgia. Amazing the politics of this State. Cashless bail (How out of touch are you) Protect criminals but harass, punish and injure those that actually obey laws doesn't make sense to me. Ask anyone that had their KIA stolen.
  3. For quick and dirty you be surprised how well a 6 x 9 tarp works. I always carry one in my pack and wrap deer in it if only to keep out dirt and leaves.
  4. For a second time the closure of the Remington plant located at Ilion, NY is being announced. RemArms LLC will relocate these operations to Alabama and 300 people lose jobs in Ilion. This will be a death nail to an already hurting town.
  5. $4.70 a deal. Any place near me is over $5 and our ATVs eat it up. I always add some Seafoam to container too.
  6. I kind of have the same problem with Great Blue Herons and Kingfishers in my bass pond. Do they eat the bluegill fish I have by the hundreds??? Noooooo! They like bass And you're not supposed to harass them I keep telling the dogs.
  7. My dad was a quirky engineer who had five sons. Among topics we were educated on was coffee. Coffee because as a young engineering student one of his projects was to design the perfect coffee machine without regard to expense. I got a lecture. :-) Water boils at 212 degrees F at sea level Perfect temperature to brew coffee is between 195-205 F. To serve, 155-175 and to drink 120-140 If you ever worked at a decent restaurant, you really pay attention to coffee. A bad serving of coffee will destroy the finest meal. There's a reason why Bunn machines are at every restaurant. They are very dependable, consistent and a standard for suppliers. But beans and water play a big part too for them. Percolators can make a great cup of coffee, but their operation must be closely monitor as they are always recycling coffee through grounds to make it stronger. They also vary more in operation with change in elevation. Plus, they suffer from the same issue with most coffee makers. You don't want to overcook your made coffee on the burner. With that being said mom's old Corning Ware percolator is in my kitchen
  8. Has anyone had the pleasure of using one of the new Thurway rest stops? Talk about missing the mark. First, there extremely limited restrooms. Men's room is 4 urinals and two toilets. And in NY fashion two of them were out of order. The entrance to restroom is furthest from the building entrance. And the line for the food court is directed in front of the restroom entrance. Largest offering in building is an overpriced convivence store stocked with useless items. Very limited food options. Brilliant interpretation of what's required for a rest stop. Two years in the making and this is one of the first.
  9. I reload primarily for WWII military rifles of various nations, so I eat up large rifle primers. Pistol rimers haven't been an issue to get for some reason and I've seen small rifle primers available but 223 isn't tough to come by. 209 primers come and go but my only use is muzzleloading. But Large rifle primers are in the ether so I would feel more comfort if I knew they exist. My go to powders: IMR 4064, 4895 and 3031 but I have dabbled in others.
  10. My kingdom for LR primers
  11. From a design aspect I see a lot of faults and compromises. The center hub puts a lot of strain on the plastic spokes. Chair isn't designed for human anatomy. It would need to more "S" shaped for back comfort. There's little or no adjustability. Entire system lacks any ergonomics which if you do plan to sit for hours becomes very important.
  12. As a young teen my dad would volunteer me at times out to a good friend of his that had a dairy farm. It was very hard work as the farm was understaffed and my main working partner was his son "Tool". (Never was there a better nickname) So after a hard day's work there was absolutely nothing to do. At night the only TV was occupied with Heehaw and such and I wasn't a fan. My dad was a WWII vet and a Battle of the Bulge participant. He didn't want guns in the house even though his father provided food with them. The one thing Tool was good at was shooting and he taught me to shoot a 22. Our nightly ritual was to go down to the corn crib and shoot rats. I likely owe all my shooting ability to this practice.
  13. How about the breakfast at all the diners that would open early. And the stories at night and many of the same home cooked diners for dinner. Zero ATVs used but an orange army (Sometimes Red mixed in)
  14. Knehrke, thx That does look to be a good resource. Recently the electric company had the tree service clear cut anything even remotely near the utility poles on my property. I've done a lot of DEC trees in past but do now plan to do more for my Ruffle Grouse and such in these barren areas. Daughter is to inherit property so my management of it will be part of legacy. I'm already one freaking expert on land clearing as far as saplings and things getting rid of evasive species. I rebuilt and slightly modified an antique Jari sickle bar cutter that I was also able to find all new cutter for. It's my "Path of Mass Destruction" Anything two inches or smaller disappears. It's downright fun and makes me feel like I should put fuzzy dice on it. I also have a commercial weed whacker with a carbide saw head that is dangerous but helpful. Ever see Fargo?
  15. I have 30 acres on a mountain top that adjoins my buddy's 20 acres. His includes about 4 acres (being his share) of abandoned farmland that mixed grasses. The soil is all rock and clay. Absolute crap. Digging a foot requires dynamite Granger, NY near Swain One thing that concerns me is the use of Glyphosate. I know they all say it's safe and breaks down into inert materials. I also had for 36 years in my job title Environmental Engineer. I can't tell you how many times I've heard "It's Safe". And years later........maybe not So whenever possible I try to follow "Living better without chemistry in my food chain". And when I do use chemicals for anything, they are the safest for the purpose that work. I always read the SDS as a matter of professional training. Would a large tarp, (and I mean really large) be a good way to clear an experimental plot to see what we can grow? I'm not talking acres but more a large garden plot. I do have a 35 HP tractor and access to a drag as well as brush mower.
