    Idaho45guy replied to a thread Knock about pants in Our Town
    I was at the local hardware/building supply store that has a fairly large clothing section with Carhart, Caterpillar, and Dickies work wear. I was waiting for some deck paint to get mixed, so I thought I'd look for some pants. They had some nice...

    Yeah, I did a search and it is the result of identity theft. I filed a claim for fraud with the state of Arizona. Funny how I never had an issue with identity theft when my FICO score was in the 500-600s. Now that I'm divorced and taking care...

    The only problem is that I did not apply for welfare. And I don't live in Arizona. Haven't for nearly 7 years. Either identity theft or gross bureaucratic failure. I'll have to call tomorrow and find out which.

    It's definitely the rocker switch. Click it on when new and the fireplace fires right up. After a couple of months, you have to start flicking it back and forth a few times. When it's about gone, you have to sort of massage it a bit and find the...

    I was one of the few people that was in a media dead zone during the event. I was on my grandparent's farm near Rupert, Idaho helping to get it ready for sale as they were just put into hospice care. My dad and I were out in one of the machine...

    I'm ashamed to admit that I didn't even realize or think about it until about an hour ago. Such a horrific event that is seared into my mind for the rest of my days, and I didn't even realize that it was here.

    Yep. The world is devolving rapidly and I no longer proudly display my religious or political ideals on my vehicle. A friend of mine has an old Toyota pickup with large pro-Trump decals and Bible verses on the canopy and back window. He gets...

    Went ahead and ordered one. Supposed to be a bad winter and I actually had to fire up the stove tonight. Had to replace the rocker switch that turns it on since it goes bad about 3/4 of the way through the winter. I looked at the $22 rocker...

    Anybody use one of these? I have a smaller home. 1450 sq. ft. with the upstairs closed off and not used except for reloading and a guest bedroom. The downstairs is maybe 1000 sq. ft. I have a smaller natural gas stove that does a fine...

    .22 has been plentiful around here since so many stocked up since the last shortage. I've been surprised to see it so plentiful when remembering to check on it. I have plenty, so haven't noticed the last couple of trips. Went to the local (50...

    I was up hiking near Marble Mountain last Tuesday and found a huckleberry patch with the biggest pile of bear scat I've ever seen. This was not made by any black bear. Either Bigfoot or a Grizzly...

    I ordered a pair of the CQR tactical pants off of Amazon for work for $30 and found them extremely comfortable and resistant to stains. Ordered three more pairs in different colors. I used the Propper tactical pants for a few years, but they...

    My company has three flag poles in front of the HQ building. The American flag is on the highest one, along with our state flag and some nonsensical flag for a company or product we are whoring ourselves out for. I caught on video camera, our...

    My LGS is fully stocked on all rifle calibers except 5.56, 7.62x39, and .308. Everything else is stacked deep and normal prices. I stopped by there a few days ago and I noticed a clerk stocking the shelf and small crowd formed. He was stacking...

    My 80yr old father is completely unaware of the components shortage. He is a subcontractor for a cast boolit supplier and can cast just about any rifle boolit you could want. I believe he cast about 40,000 boolits last year. I told him about...

    My folks bought a horse a couple of weeks ago and it was 95 degrees out and the horse was already getting it's winter coat. Their ranch hand said that's a sign that we're going to have a bad winter.

    I hope this winter is a bad one. It drives the California immigrants back down South. I lived in the Midwest for a few years. Worst of both worlds with hot and humid weather in the summer and bitter cold and snow in the winter. Plus, very...

    I believe it is very relevant to the situation. For someone that shoots a thousand rounds a week, my supply would run out in a couple of months. For those that don't shoot much, it will last years. But I get your point about not being to...
