    I picked up an 18 pack today from Sam's for $21.98. It always drives me nuts because my two trail cams take 20 batteries. I'll have to pick up a 4 pack.

    ^^^^ I agree. I use to get a 16 pack of them at Sam’s club for $20 a few year ago. The last time I checked they switched brands. They list AA in an 18 pack for $21.98! ...

    Here’s another batch... It almost reminds me of some really good cod. I soaked the back half in brine for smoking. If I would have known how good it was I would have been fried up as well.

    I had to dig. Here’s a pic of my 1967’ 600 chambered in 243. I had a leupold 2x7 vx1 on it and switched it out with a 100th anniversary leupold 3x9 vx11 with ballistic aiming points. It’s lighter than my BB gun. It will put three shots all in the...

    As a tip I can tell you the mowing went a way faster where I drove my 4 wheeler through previously as it packed a lot of the brush down already. It’s going to be nice not to get soaked walking to my stand in the morning from the overnight dew and...

    Day number three and I’m all done with mowing. Worked great again! That’s a good idea with cutting off the bent edges of the blade so It won’t kick debris up and away and just forward.

    I sharpened the blade up this morning as well. The ant hills made the blade duller than a butter knife....but it still cut brush without an issue. Just make sure there is no one in front of you when mowing. It kicks everything out at a 45 degree...

    I’ve got the idea after some internet research. My buddy donated the lawn mower. It was bought new and had only mowed two lawns and stopped running. I found Burlap wrapped in the blade and the carb clogged. I cost $2.49 for a new spark plug, $2.99...

    I’ve loaded my 300 RUM WAY over 4000 FPS with 125 grain Nosler ballistic tip. It kicks like a 243 with my KDF installed. It will cause your ears to bleed with no hearing protection after a couple of rounds...I can tell you first hand. I shot two...

    I load A .452 lee 255 grain boolit with 5.2 grains of trailboss for my Ruger new vaquero. I can hit shotgun casings every shot at 25 yards with it free handed. It kicks similar to a 22wrm or a hair more.
