    quilbilly replied to a thread J&J vaccine in Our Town
    We held out for the J&J because we refused the others and got ours about six weeks ago. No problems at all. We are both 70.

    Conditions for the event on the ten day forecast look like highs in the mid to low 80's and quite windy. Two days earlier and the temps would be in the mid 90's which explains the higher winds. Plan on your longer range shooting to be in the...

    quilbilly replied to a thread Age of poison ivy in Our Town
    The same is true with poison oak here on the West Coast. The fumes of forest fires in poison oak country are very toxic. They can cause a reaction hundreds of miles away.

    I used a similar 130 gr PB boolit from a Lyman mold in my 30/30 using Red Dot. It shot well as long as I kept the MV under 1350 fps when leading started to reveal itself. Several coyotes could have attested to its effectiveness out to 150 yards.

    Ape Canyon and Cave are roughly on the south side of what is left of the volcano so didn't get as much damage. The legend about Ape Canyon is that some miner/prospectors chasing gold built a cabin up there in the canyon in the late 1800's....

    Yes, that was the building. It was still a NavResCen at the time. My minesweeper was in dry dock there at the time so the crew met there. I didn't even know it was turned into a museum.
