    ..... how the hell does that get through a QC inspection ??? Back in the day we had a good number of 5.56 rifles assigned to traning teams, they were shot smooth and at 25m you could paint pretty pictures with bullets flying sideways.....I have some pics (hard copy 35mm) of perfect M193 and M855 shapes cut into targets......but from new that is just bad.

    I don't know, it was cheap though and the gun market has been on fire here. I guess it just got rushed out, it had a nice crown. I'm just glad it wasn't undersized and blew up in my face.

    I was having problems getting the primers to ignite with wolf ammo, so I had to shorten the tail of the bolt. Before I got it to fire, I got out my sks and made sure my ammo was good. The sks left little dimples in my ar500 plate. It looked like you hit it with a center punch. The AR was leaving either a line or a circle where the base of the bullet was hitting first.

    I wish I had the talent to use that pedal board.

    Found this last week in the field. 28 Nosler case someone was shooting. Makes my 30-30 look anemic! Also found a 30 WSM out there too. Looks like we got guys with some magnum love over here. I gave mine up years ago. They use to much powder for me and didnt enjoy shooting it.

    Does anyone else’s young kids just randomly drop items throughout the house for no reason?

    I find pillows, blankets, toys, etc just laying about.

    Yesterday I watched our oldest carry a
    Christmas blanket (which was on a shelf in his closet) into the living room, drop it, and keep walking without even looking back or breaking stride.
    This morning he picked up a drawing tablet off the ottoman and proceeded to drop it in the kitchen floor on the way to his bedroom.
    For no reason.

    I've got six kids between 21 and 1 years of age. I could write a book about parenting at this point lol... But yes, constantly.

    Of particular interest: My four year old has an obsession with spoons. Always has. He carries spoons EVERYWHERE. I find them in the strangest places constantly. Toys too, but mostly spoons.

    My one year old is a neat freak. He can't stand a mess. So he's always picking up the odds and ends from the other kids and placing those items in really odd places.

    Every day is an adventure.

    Yes and Yes...
    If it isn’t tied or glued down in my house it will at sometime be moved or obviously picked up and put down in a weird way.
    When something is picked up and eventually deemed not fun.. It tends to get left in the exact place it lost its fun value..

    Absolutely yes! Little plastic action figures and Lego pieces are by far the worst. Especially in the dark late at night when I find them the hard way....

    Oh yeah. Luckily she wasn't into Legos but she was barbies. It always looked like barbie had a massive party and everyone just crashed where they wanted, not to mention clothes everywhere.

    That was amazing, it was so long I almost got bored once or twice. I just wonder what kind of drugs those people are on.

    I went to walmart this afternoon. I had a buggy that I spent over an hour filling and I just left it. They didn't have a single check out isle open. They even had a lady standing next to the register in the garden section but she wouldn't check me out. If I wasn't ready to leave I would have filled a buggy with frozen food and the freezers with drinks.

    We only shop online anymore.
    No more wasting time, just show up and they load up the trunk with our stuff. Saves a ton of time.

    They should offer a discount if they want you to use self checkout.

    I refuse to use self check out! Just like I stay far away from the IMO creepy robotic floor cleaner/ Mopping machine.. Something Just ain’t right…

    Luckily the W Mart always has the Tobacco line open. So if it comes down to self checkout or a long line at the tobacco line I’ll go to the Tobacco line!
