  1. My son has baseball games both days. But the 11th would be the better day for myself. I've driven by this place a hundred times, would be nice to meet up with you guys.
  2. Rotterdam Walmart has a bunch of 12 gauge rounds. Copper plated, too. Slugs for 12 &20. Plenty of 22lr and a handful of 7.62 /51. One box of 6.5 on the shelf as of Sunday.
  3. Nice cabinet to hide some treasures inside, in plain sight.
  4. Skre sent me an email today. Sitewide sale untill Sunday. I have a few of the heavy wool items. They work good for me.
  5. Skre has a sitewide sale going on till Sunday.
  6. I read an article this year I believe it was from Meateater about people that elk hunt without a guide. And they talked about one of their townships that has the largest game taken. When I was looking it up on maps they were to the north of the Elk herd preserve. Benezette PA is where to start looking for the area. Good Luck sounds like a fun journey!
  7. I find them locally at Tractor Supply $45. Wrangler Riggs pants, Ranger model . They have cargo pockets and a small tool pocket on the right leg. I love them. Dry pretty quick, durable and quiet. Multiple colors to choose from. I usually wear them 7 days a week. They are my employers uniform pant, but I purchased other colors for my weekends to wear. Just don't put them in the dryer. I hang them on my dining room chairs for the night to dry them after washing.
  8. Glenville Walmart has a lot of the 22lr Federal, 325 in a box for $21. Some other 22lr 300 in a box. A few 350 legends boxes and a few 7.62 x 51 boxes. Two boxes of 12gauge no lead #7. A couple 20 gauge #8s. And about 5 100 round Federal 12 gauge #7 trap for $29.44.
  9. It's a reply to "bump " your post to the top page of the recent posts. Keeps your stuff being seen , or revive a lost post.
  10. I don't think I'll have any opportunity for the ice to be safe enough to get me out there anymore this season. But I did start looking at people selling their gear, and found a free 8" auger I picked up. I'm planning on converting it to a drill auger to give me a break from my 6" hand auger for next year. I had a later start getting on the ice this year, but did have some nice memories.
  11. Grampy, Take it to the bank moved to Del Gallos Pool store, and the Wagon Train building. These are Del Gallos other business endeavors. Just up the road on Rt159 and Burdeck St intersection. Opposite the Stewart's Shop. Your description of the Beararms shop matches my description of Outlander Survival. Moved from Rt7 just down the road to RT 20. I just purchased an 80% lower from OSS at Christmas. It's an Aero Precision. They had complete lowers there for sale too, or available to order. I matched it to a PSA upper I picked up on Thanksgiving sale prices. We do need meet up. There was a talk about a local get together, I lost track of it. Hope I didn't miss it.
  12. Try looking online and just buy assembled uppers and lowers so you don't have to "build it " yourself. Just snap it together and push in the pins. Palmetto state armory always tons of options on sale . Windham weaponry as well runs deals they email me. Your FFL could order your complete lower and put a NY compliant stock on it too.
  13. A gentleman I work with had given a quote to a member from his church for $800 bucks for parts and labor to install his charging setup. The Customer had purchased a kit (sounds like an outlet) from Tesla already. Well the customer decided to get another quote, found a Craigslist guy for $700. Hired him to do it. Customer called Craigslist guy back because of breaker tripping. And guess who does not answer the phone calls! My friend went back to look at it. They opened the dryer outlet box, wire nutted into it and ran a short piece of wire through the wall into the garage. So when the Tesla and dryer are both running.....trip breaker. $800 quote was for a dedicated breaker and new wire from the panel all the way to garage. Lol, so much for saving money. After hearing the story I asked if he suggested a Solar dryer, clothes line are still cheap.
  14. Where is Beararms? I live in Duanesburg, never heard of them. We do have Outlander Survival (OSS) out here. That's the only gun shop I'm familiar with in town. As far as Gunsmoke goes, they've been gone a long time. That store was a partnership between Brian Olson and the gentleman that owns the planet fitness franchise in the area. I can't remember his last name. But his first is Leon. I figured they split up and decided to not reopen. There's the other gun store Take it to the Bank in Rotterdam. They also moved, further up the road. I wondered if that had something to do with the town and maybe what forced Gunsmoke out?
  15. I was on Thompson's lake yesterday, still 17" thick and a nice 6" blanket of snow insulation on it. As a group we had 2 rainbow trout ,2 perch and a pickerel. My pickerel was 24" and 5 lbs!!! The eagle visited us and almost made off with my trout, but my buddy running towards it made him decide to pull up about 15 feet away . I was an awesome experience to have the eagle so close. Great day with friends and weather, fishing was slow. All my catches were within 10 mins. Stopped down to Collins Park to throw some more minnows in for 2 hours while my kid was at baseball practice. No action, but there the ice was still 11".
  16. That's awesome. What a proud moment!
  17. So we have a group of parents who are showing up to the school board meetings ( which they switched to zoom meetings, and thats whole different story about people not being able to operate, or call in and be heard, and questions not being answered) and they are just deflecting the ability make a decision. They say our superintendent has the obligation to follow the states guidance. But we keep on showing up, it is the best move. They know a group of us have had enough of the kids being in masks. The pressure that we have applied has forced our superintendent to tell a parent on the phone that him following the guidelines has ensured them to receive a lot of money from the state. And that gives them a good reason to keep up the mask mandate. Which the parent replied "Is that in the best interest of the kids? " His son's have been quarantined so much from a possible exposure from the school bus in January they only had 3 days of school. And they didn't have the covid. It a tough situation, us parents need to speak up for our children.
  18. I worked doing plumbing and heating for a local company for 13 yrs, and I gave all my jobs the same best job I could do for their budget. But it is great to have a customer anticipate the space you need access to, access to my van, etc. You showed them how terrific of a customer you are with ALL your gestures, I'm sure they went back and informed the boss how well you treated them. Let's hope it didn't fall on deaf ears and he learns to keep his word. Stories like this make me laugh, they want/ or in your case already took you money, and don't care about their decisions to stall!
  19. That's fantastic news!!! Congratulations and thank you for all your families time and effort to get her there.
  20. I'm also a snow removal supervisor. If you need additional instructors. .... I'm with Huey , I prefer the deicing technique! Well played Gman
  21. Thanks Bill. I always thought the toms recognized my call squence after a few mornings. They changed their whole pattern by the second weekend. I'm not a very good diaphragm caller, box and slate are my go toos. I picked up a quality push pull this summer , made in usa- from the south. Thought it would give me a better chance. Probably should just be a lot quieter!!!
  22. Zoom in on the sticker..... limited availability is worth the 50k???
  23. I buy my gloves there. Can't remember the brand name, the the model is "Battalion" 100 gram insulation. The most grams I have seen for about $20 bucks a pair on their sale price. They last quite a long time and with a hand warmer in them on the coldest days they work for me.
  24. There's two stands I have come across on state land where the owner has used old artificial Christmas tree branches to bush himself in. It looks pretty good. He breaks his shape up on the sides and behind his upper body with them.
