  1. I also went through this years ago. Spend the money on good orthotic insoles. Find a GoodFeet store near you or even the Dr. Scholls worked really well for me. I first tried them when I was at a Walmart in Ohio and saw a kiosk to fit you in the drug store area. They work.

    I placed an order for a couple of boxes of TSS with Target Sports last Sunday. They said 15 day delay in shipping. I haven’t heard a word from them yet. As long as it gets here a few days before the opener I‘ll be happy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I have made quite a few purchases from GB. Never once had any kind of issue whatsoever. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. We decided to get out of the home office yesterday and take a drive to the property in Ellington. We hiked a few miles and came across a few of these. It always amazes me to see these giants snapped like toothpicks.
  5. Tried to PM you, not sure if it went through or not. There are a lot of good places within an hour of us to take the kids. Here is the stocking list, I used to cross reference this with my old Sander's Guide to find places. https://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/30465.html
  6. Is that at Evans Gun Club? Looks awfully familiar Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Tell me about it! This is day 3 working at home and I swear I've gained 5 lbs already.
  8. I just ran to Lowe's in Hamburg to grab an ethernet cable for one of my computers and was shocked at how many people were there. Looked like more people working there today than on a Saturday in July when you NEED help.
  9. As of Monday we closed our building for a month. Working from home, thankfully I can do this and be productive. So many can not and I don't know how people will get by financially. I am very fortunate, my company is paying us, but that's not going to go on forever if this gets worse. We are all effecting business in a big way, personally I am postponing a driveway that was going in in a few weeks. I ordered a new O/U shotgun on Saturday at my LGS, called them Monday and cancelled it, thankfully they hadn't gotten around to placing the order yet. I was planning on starting to resurface my deck this weekend, now its on hold. My wife and I are putting everything on hold until we know things will get back to normal financially.
  10. People will believe what they want. I felt like this was everything from political to co spit act at first. The numbers just don’t add up to justify the reaction, but a little enlightening can go a long way. The “Power stoke forever!!” Crowd is exactly why this is dangerous. They don’t care if they are making things worse. Many people simply wont look at reality, they will defend their “opinion” to no end, even if it causes harm to others. They may be fine in the end, but may spread this to someone who won’t be. Selfish beyond forgiveness. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I work for a global medical device company. Our NA headquarters is in WNY, we just shut down for one month, work from home for everyone who can. What people don’t seem to understand is that what happened in Italy can not Be permitted to happen here. If this is allowed to spread like a flu, and the hospitalized elderly and compromised patients overwhelm the medical system there will be deaths like we have never seen. Drs in Italy are literally having to choose who lives and who dies, there are simply not enough respirators on the planet to treat a massive influx of critically ill in this country. I thought it was all overkill until I got some disturbing information from our global senior management this morning. This is no joke. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I'm looking at something new so something's got to go. I bought this two years ago because I had one similar to it back in the 90s and always missed it. Well, I didn't miss it too much, this one has never been outside, it is literally new in box, 3 chokes, lock, everything as new. It's the 2018 Shot show special, limited run and no longer available. If you know someone who may have been looking for one of these, they are very hard to find. I paid $800. For sale @ $700. I will ship it to FFL (split cost), or meet if in WNY. Pics aren't great so I added some from Brownings website... https://www.browning.com/products/firearms/shotguns/bps/discontinued/bps-medallion-12ga.html
  13. I don't mean to sound like they don't hold up and I'm certainly not bashing them. They are just not "brush busting" boots and I learned the expensive way, but they are great cold weather boots. I can't explain the crack in the newest pair, maybe I damaged it somehow on the 4wheeler or tree stand and did not notice until it was completely split.
  14. I have a pair of Arctic Pros that I shredded walking through brush the very first time I wore them in the woods. That neoprene is not durable at all. I did buy another pair a few years ago and still wear them, but I am very aware of what I'm walking through, cold weather to and from the stand is it. That pair cracked where the boot flexes on top of the foot during their second season, I sealed it with Aquaseal and they are fine. As far as tucking pants into them goes, not a chance for me. They are really tight to the leg for me, uncomfortably tight even with only a base layer on. I only wear them with cold-weather bibs which go over them easily, I'm sure I could get field pants or loose jeans over them. Again, I have Arctic Pros so they are pretty thick, others may not be.
  15. About 15 years ago I got a call from Capital One asking if I had purchased a bull dozer for $30,000 in Nevada-two days earlier. The guy drove off with a $30,000 dozer and two days later they checked on it. I have no idea how that even worked, the limit on that card was no where near $30k. They took care of it though.
