    Bees are back. Shot a few today, trying to finish up my loads in 45acp for my S&W Brazilian 1937. Have plenty loaded in 38 spl and 357 mag.

    Noticed a few at the barn today too. All loaded for the season. Will wait a couple of days as the main flight isn't in yet. Can't wait to try out the new recipes./beagle

    There's a kid on youtube that has a few videos of flying RC a drone up & around bee or wasp nests.
    Its a hoot. Kind of tough on the wasps though.
    It wasn't playing the blame game, finding fault, and complaining about every little thing that made America great.
    It was God, guns, and guts.


    Never pick a fight with old people.
    If they don't think they can win it: They'll just kill you.

    Every year or so since my retirement I’ve been fighting a battle with those big borer bees cutting holes in my deck and shed. I don’t shoot them though, I use a badminton racket. Two years ago I whacked 600, last year only a couple hundred, this year I’m up to 260 as of today. It’s not as easy as it looks. Good PT.

    I like to pop them with my henry lever gun and the Federal crimped top 22 shot shells. The blue cups break on the CCI trying to cycle them. Been meaning to load some up for my 38 special with shot cards.
    Lead, brass, and copper are the real precious metals.

    You Guys are GREAT. Here in Washington state we have the red and black ants that build their nest above and below the ground in a mound. They are mean little buggers. A cup of good old #2 fuel oil (diesel) stops them dead. They will never rebuild there either.
