Do you miss Mass ?
We were shooting directly away from the road, probably 30 feet behind us. About a dozen cars went by during the 45 minutes we were out there. Outside city limits, dgaf about po-po. After we got done I heard an echo from a neighbor doing some shooting of his own...Hey, were you the proper distance from any dwelling? Backyard range OK for your town and HOA? No? LOL, nice to not have to worry about that crap. I miss being able to legally take care of coyote problems from my front porch or garage.
Is that a deer, or a horse?We were shooting directly away from the road, probably 30 feet behind us. About a dozen cars went by during the 45 minutes we were out there. Outside city limits, dgaf about po-po. After we got done I heard an echo from a neighbor doing some shooting of his own...
As to critters, haven't seen a yote yet. Couple of foxes, turkeys fly over the house from the back pasture occasionally, squirrels are making me crazy though. Gonna sit out back with the scoped 22mag soon.
And this guy stopped by with mama the other day, they wandered around for an hour or so...

Lol, not much... Some of the conversations I've had with people about AWB stuff, mag limits, "lists" and the usual NES topics would blow your mind. I have yet to see a Bernie bumper sticker. Or Biden, Warren, or any other member of the clown posse. I actually have a Gadsden license plate on my truckLol, geez. I can only imagine what she thinks of MA.
I'm taking my younger daughter to University of Tennessee in Knoxville on Tuesday for a tour, she wants to transfer for spring, especially since she found out they have a Trap team. I'm buying a thrower and a couple of boxes of clays this weekend, we'll set up in one of the fields "out back" on Thanksgiving Day I have no doubt we'll be in the gift shop Tuesday for some Volunteer garbI don't see you wearing anything orange....that's a requirement isn't it?

Wheelybird looks nice, maybe next year. Today I ordered this, be here Monday.You looking into a hand thrower or a real thrower? Check out the wheelybird. Runs off of a 12v battery, doesn't need to be some huge car battery either. Corded remote footswitch, can adjust speed and angle, and can upgrade to a wobbler for it to make throws more fun and unpredictable. Tons of fun, but you'll go through a lot of clays.
Just think. You can honestly sing the following every day when leaving work:Tidbits....
Traffic today was rough. I started a new job and my commute is 14 miles and 29 minutes. All country roads, 30-40mph zones. Turning left from one road to another I was 5th in line, took almost a whole minute.
Cows don't like car horns. They stand on the side of the road staring as you drive by. Toot the horn and they get startled. Not as much fun as fainting goats, but still funny.
They don't like marking curves here. Some have a lot of signage, some it's kind of a surprise.
Auro work is interesting. Lady Radtekk needed exhaust work on her 2003 Dodge Dakota. From the cat back, dual exhaust, hangers etc, $270 installed. It had completely rotted away, was loud as a drag strip. The day before I was at a traffic light, sheriff pulled up next to me, looked over, rolled up his window. No inspections here
I bought a 1994 GMC Sierra 2 months ago from a private seller. Runs good, clean carfax, no obvious issues. Clean oil, coolant, trans fluid, etc. Brakes were good, stopped straight. Two weeks ago I get off the highway, stop at a light, engine starts clattering away. Turns out the motor is now a boat anchor, threw a rod. Very sad. Nobody's fault, just bad timing. Took it to the shop I'd been referred to by a couple locals/neighbors. Stonewall (the owner) worked it up and quoted me for a new (rebuilt) engine, water pump, PS pump, belts, rad hoses, front pads/rotors/bearings repacked, rear drums/shoes/cylinders, and assorted parts, clamps, fluids, etc. $3700 total, parts and labor and tax, 3 year unlimited mileage warranty on the motor.
Went and got gas yesterday, used my gas points, got 65¢/gal discount, paid $1.67 per.
Had my hair cut and beard trimmed, she charged me $15 and asked if that was OK.
Need a license to conceal carry, OC w/o is fine, my MA LTC qualified for CC for 6 months. Called to register for the class, Detective was out, called back and APOLOGIZED for not being available and left me his cell for me to call back.
My boss moved down here from Indiana because she "wants to raise her boys to be men".
Yeah,things are different down here
Hey, nice co. . . .
