Re: Target shooting on public land

Years back in East Texas, the various paper companies had sections of land they designated as "usable" for camping, hunting etc. These parcels rotated. One could get a good set of maps. We spent a lot of time out on these lands over the years past. However, I believe these lands were turned over to ...

Re: Tool box for an 11 year old.

Bandaids
I always hated to go ask Mom for a bandaid when I nicked a finger working on something. It usually resulted in the dreaded application of "Monkey blood", followed by a giant wad of bandaids

Re: Clearing Overgrown Land

If hand chainsawying or brush trimmer/sawing is the choice, I'd strongly suggest spraying the cut stumps with a strong herbicide (not Roundup for example). One's time is also valuable. Having to go back over the same area, like a road/trail, again and again can be worth a little extra $ up front. On...

I asked around several of the gun shops but none would store them due to their insurance. I stopped by a small one I'd done business with in the past. He said he couldnt "store...

Re: Ammo Cans

One of the catches I've seen on the gov liquidation site is in the proverbial fine print-- no help whatsoever loading/removing the items. Many I've seen are by the pallet(s) so would appear to require a forklift and large truck/trailer at minimum.

Re: Motor homes

Rent rent rent first--
A number of friends who have large A/B class RV"s gave me that advice when I was considering one. Try a few close overnights in models/sizes similar to what you're looking at. Then, drive a few good long drives (4-5+ hours away)to see if the driving part fits.

I'd be looking for volume w...
