  1. For those that use the mil discount at Lowe's...

    It can't be used on lumber, plywood, electrical wire, appliances....wtf??? It'll be cheaper to buy my lumber and appliances locally (which I've been doing since I moved here last October). Lowes had shitty lumber anyway. It'll save me the 90 mile trip one way to shop at Lowe's and then find...
  2. Ruger aficionados: Will a Ruger 22/45 MK III frame/grip fit on a MK II 22/45 barrel assy?

    I have a 22/45 MK II and would like to put a frame on it that I can install 1911 grips on it. I can't do that on my MK II but it looks like I might be able to fit the MK III frame on my MK II. Has anyone done this before?
  3. ON4UN Low band DXing Book???

    Does anyone have one of these books kicking around (edition not really critical). It appears when John Devoldere, the author, passed away a couple years ago, these books must've gone out of print and seem to be unobtainium. I actually have one....somewhere in a box in my storage barn, but I...
  4. I need some advice on OWB carry...

    Hey all, Well, after years of OWB carry, thanks to my new Dr. here in MO, I finally found out what was causing long term pain in my hips...my carry belt (Hanks) and the tightness I need to wear it to hold my CZ-75 PCR (Basically a CZ-75 compact) or really, any other firearm I want to wear from...
  5. Question about calibrating an older Dillon Digital scale

    I recently bought a used D Terminator scale. I called Dillon about sending me instructions to cal it which they did within a few minutes. There are several different models and although they all have slightly different calibration procedures, they are essentially alike. Basically the procedure...
  6. Ruger Wrangler .22 revolver question...with/without internal lock?

    My wife and I each own one of these and I want to buy a set of wood grips for each of them. On Ruger's website, they show a set for the Wrangler without internal lock. What are they talking about? https://shopruger.com/Single-Action-Rosewood-w_o-Lock/productinfo/70046/
  7. Are the bands really this dead???

    They're either really dead and have been for weeks, or my shitty antenna is really shittier than I thought. I spin the dial from one end of the band (take your choice) and almost nothing...at all. I know my antenna is a compromise at best (an 80-10 OCFD) but, being a Palomar Engineering OCFD...

  10. What a bunch of left wing pussies amateurs are!

    Listening to some hams and most of them are petrified of getting covid. I'm guessing most of them are >70 years old and morbidly obese. There are so many that expound on the necessity of wearing masks and that we all need to be vaxxed. People not getting vaxxed are just selfish they say...Thank...
  11. Is this a pipe dream???

    The past few weeks I have been hankering for a new firearm. I decided to look at .22 revolvers. The inexpensive Ruger Wrangler sorta caught my eye. It’s cheap (well, maybe was) and the reviews I’ve seen are pretty good. My $$ limit is about $300 so if I find a used a revolver in great shape, not...
  12. School me on modern Springfield M1A's

    Since the thread popped up about what your dream gun would be and I answered a Springfield M1A, I've been thinking about how to acquire one. I think the only way I'm going to end up with one is to probably trade something I have already for one. My preference would be a Match M1A but it may be...
  13. USAF High Frequency Global Communications System

    The HFGCS frequencies have been very busy the past week or so. Best freqs to listen to are 11.175 and 8.992 MHz both on upper sideband. It's not constant chatter but way more than I've heard in years... Overview...

  15. Does anyone here do knapping (or as it is sometimes called Flintknapping)?

    When I was a kid living in northern NH, there was an old timer, long gone, that knew how to do this. He showed me the technique but that was over 50 years ago though I never really ever tried it. The knives and arrow points he made out of stone and glass were impressively sharp. I suddenly...
  16. Find the error in NH F&G's email about muzzle loaders

    Makes you wonder who writes these...hint, it's in the first paragraph. https://nhfishgame.com/2020/10/22/hunters-preparing-for-muzzleloader-season/
  17. After 37 years of being a ham, I joined the ARRL last night

    I have been spending a lot more time on the air and listening the past 2-3 years than I have in a long time. I have thought about joining the past year or so but never did until last night. I know they have their faults, like any other organization that represent a lot of people but I know they...
  18. Gov. Sununu Vetoes HB 1660 — the “elder care” no-Due Process gun confiscation bill

    https://gunowners.org/nh07292020/ There's still another one hanging out there though...keep calling. I don't agree with about half of what he has not vetoed but if it wasn't for him, we gun owners in NH would be up Schitt's Creek.
  19. Field Day 2020

    Did anyone attempt to work FD this past weekend? I tried a few times but due to almost everyone working from their home stations (category 1D), it was total bedlam, way worse than FD usually is. After several 1/2 hour periods on the air, I threw the big switch and called it a bust. Even with...
  20. ARRL VHF/UHF contest this weekend

    I have 50-440 capability, some of it FM only but I may get a chance to play for a while. http://www.arrl.org/june-vhf
