  3. PETA has convinced me to go coyote hunting

    PETA sent a public letter to Tom Brady asking him to stop promoting Canada Goose jackets because "The fur that lines Canada Goose jackets comes from wild coyotes..." I didn't know that fur from coyotes was this useful. Guess I'll have to go get some...
  4. Question for anyone who ever entered a "Coyote Contest"

    Is/was it required to bring the carcass to the outfitter to enter the contest? The new proposed Mass regulations claim they are needed because the contests promote waste.

  8. Another reason why I hate microsoft

    I decided I wanted a way to choose a printer that would send the output to a pdf without having to specify a filename. In a former job, I set up netcat (nc) to monitor a port, set that port up as a TCP/IP printer, and do whatever I wanted with the output. So I wrote a simple script: :loop ncat...

    One of the guns dad left was an Erma EP-22, Luger clone. It had been in storage for 25+ years before I took possession of it. I tried firing it, but it would just go click.

  11. Applied for my FID yesterday

    So I had my "interview" for my FID card yesterday. He asked why I wanted an FID when I already have an LTC.

  14. I support gun control

    But.... The antis start their diatribe with "I support the Second Amendment, but..." and go on to say how common sense laws should be put in place. OK, Here's my counter. I support gun control, but that must not infringe on the rights of law abiding citizens. I will support legislation that...
