Pitchy,
I could have sent you some bull frogs from the pond out back but it would take a forklift to lift them out of the water.....really cool bro.

I've said this before and I'll say it again...if you gathered up all of your inventions and manifestions of ingenuity and brought them down here to an auction house, you would go home with a suitcase full of cash.

Jay...let's see...there are 14 years between us and at 14 I was just getting pubic hair...so yes! You are my son....welcome to the family son....there ain't much here other than a mess of old guns so I'll make sure you get that Stevens single shot in 16 ga. that had the barrel cut down to 20". :D -----Dad. (Don't forget, Christmas is right around the corner aaaannnddddd I'm waiting!)

Well, guys, back to the garage for another 2 hours or so.-----6

Thanks but i could care less about money, if i have some and want something i`ll buy it.
As far as selling all this junk it ain`t worth the effort if i die first Norma can sell it all.
Money and greed is what got us into the mess we`re in now. :)

Thanks Todd, are you up at the cabin?

No stuff happened, will see if it works to stick around for show next weekend. Been melting lead down into ingots for some people here. I dont have internet at cabin. But have plenty of wood to burn and critters to keep me entertained.

Just got home from vet with Parker. All is well, just needed booster shots. She is almost 15 months old, 62 lbs and is about an inch taller at shoulder than her mother. Still a few more months of growing to do. I sure hope her hips & elbows are GOOD to EXCELLENT and no eye problems- can you say puppies?!?!

I do a lot of furniture from pictures, as long as you can come up with a way to scale the pics it's pretty easy. Few years ago I got a call from a guy that wanted a library stand made for his wife. He called me about a week before Christmas, I told him time was short and I'd do my best- I delivered the stand on Christmas Eve to his delight. The pic I was given

I usually just tell people I make it up as I go.
Was doing a trim job once, electrician on the job, homeowner comes in and starts racing about the work I was doing, I replied not bad for my first day, huh? The electrician though it was MY FIRST DAY ever doing trim... some people are gullible!

I agree 1000%. And it's a good thing I don't attempt it... I know all the "procedures" & tricks for doin' it... I just ain't any good at it! But, I can frame your house with flat walls, flat floors and square corners, (where they're supposed to be)... And that about as "finish" as I can do!

Ha! Me too! I have several "squares" around here and use them quite often. If a project has an angle on it, I redesign it to be 90 degrees.

In fact, I'm so hillbillish about things that if something needs a quarter inch hole, I forgo the drill press and just stick the muzzle of an old Ruger single Six against the wood and pull the trigger. If a branch is broken and hanging and it's too far up for the ladder, I just break out the double barrel Ithaca and blast away. ----6

Hey hey hey there Gunny..........you guys taking advantage of me while I'm sleeping? Just because I got to bed at 2 something and got up at 11 something don't make me any less of a person. What's going on?

Whew, mom made the best pork roast with different colored carrots and these little potatoes, when I went to sleep I slept like l did the time Jay was in my safe.

I saved the biggest potato so I can stick it in my pants when I go to the club hoping the girls will notice. Last time I made a mistake and put the potato in the back of my pants.---6

Ok fellars, Six that was great real accurate 8)
The first round went way low so had to raise the sight a few clicks, shot at the center dot first clip shooting right a little but don`t think it does with hard ball so i`ll leave it.
Fingers were getting cold on the second clip so not as good of group, you can fill in everyone on the bullet and load.
Thanks bud great fun. :)

Hey! Nice shooting Lenn!
Looks like ole Six has a pretty good M1 load worked out.
Yeah, shooting in the cold is a whole different proposition. I find it is a great equipment test though.
If it will run in the cold, it will run anywhere.

Thanks Jay, i put that second dot half in the blue and from 50 yards i could only see half of it which made a slim target too stupid to turn the target over seeing it was shootin right. :roll: :lol:
Those shells would be neat in a single shot rifle.

Your welcome Lenn....I have plenty more here. Did you have to work the action by hand?

You guys are missing something.....I ain't got much....little house, old Jeeps, a fair amount of land, a garage full of tools that are mostly from the fifties-eighties.......and the most important.....

A variety of four footed furry friends

A crazy sharp minded Italian wife

Two great kids

The very mighty Kubota

Three pairs of Redwings and a pair of American Danners

And....a few junky old guns that say "Colt", "Winchester", "Marlin", "Ruger", "Smith & Wesson", and some old junky military guns that say, "Springfield", "Smith Carona", and some big counterweight for a forklift that has "Browning Automatic Rifle" written on it and it don't work too good, only a shot with each pull of the trigger......J U N K....

So.....you guys can have it all, but......first.....before you divvy up my shyt, you have to take that Italian first so she can control most every aspect of your life!-----6

Hey Lenn...when you get a chance, take a picture of your outside woodstove...the wife wants to see what it looks like. We were just looking at the weather for your town and she says, "how in the f does he deal with that?"----6. She is too warm blooded.

Don`t know what most that reply is about but yep had to work the action by hand but can put a full clip in the gun so works pretty good. :)
I`ll look and see if i have a pic of the stove if not i`ll take one.

The stove is forced air but they burn a lot of wood if its cold.
This stove has two 10 inch pipes from the house, it takes air from the house and circulates it through the stove (jacketed) and blows it back in the house.
Its thermostatic controlled and it stays the same temp all winter.

I just realized I didnt take any pics of the A5 after I reblued it!
Since I dont have salt blueing I use the 'Belgian ' technique. In my opinion the Belgian gives a much darker blue which is more appealing to me.

First time I have ever recovered a slug from a deer. I'm shooting Remington 3" 20 ga accutips, 260 grains.
While skinning the buck I shot the other day the slug fell on the floor.
To my surprise it weighs 258.1 grains- talk about weight retention!
20181210_202155-600x800.jpg
I have found muzzle loader bullets, round balls and buckshot but never a slug.
This slug went through the off side leg bone too. I'm impressed.

Did you drink the JD 1st, and then eat the pork roast?

I dont have it yet, I glued it for a friend, asked him to send me pics but haven't seen then yet, he is waiting for the truoil to dry on the wood.
This gun was used- a LOT! Checkering on the wrist worn mostly off, the receiver had so much GUNK in it I'm really surprised it functioned!

I dont have it yet, I glued it for a friend, asked him to send me pics but haven't seen then yet, he is waiting for the truoil to dry on the wood.
This gun was used- a LOT! Checkering on the wrist worn mostly off, the receiver had so much GUNK in it I'm really surprised it functioned!
Well, Your bud had better hope the barrels are straight....3 legged Turtleman has em now! :D

Those A-5's along with everything John Browning designed are indestructible. One of my "shyt, I should have bought them" moments came back I the eighties I could have had TWO Remington Model 11's riot guns...U.S. Military marked with the flaming bomb and all in a solid 90% condition for $200....for the pair. In those days nobody wanted that stuff...about useless for hunting and self defense house guns were not talked about much because "those bad people" during that time, knew their place.----6

Yeah Jack I hear ya!
This gun was bought on an auction site, came from a pawn shop in AZ. The blueing was very thin, finish on the wood was worn off. Has a 28" modified pipe. Its actually his wife's gun and she shoots it well.

I sure hope those pipes you sent Todd are straight!!
