June Thread

Post by Phillip Gross on June 1st 2013, 8:11 am

Had a good meeting last night. Started Primitive Shelters with the ARs and mentioned that it is one of the prerequisites for FCF which led to a rabbit trail discussion about FCF. I found out two things with that discussion. I don't know much about FCF when faced with specific questions, and the boys seem pretty interested in it. I guess I'll be finding out about it sooner than later!

Picked up a new AR. He came on the camp out with us a couple weeks ago, but he had some scheduling issues between then and now so this was the first Friday night that he could come. Seemed to like it and said he wants to keep coming!

What a week! Been running like crazy because our divisional camporee was supposed to be this weekend. Between wednesday and friday morning half my outpost called and cancelled because of threat of severe weather. But then the division commander called me and cancelled the whole camp. Can I relax now?

Just think if they hadn't invented smart phones, or even the internet for that matter. I wouldn't have anything to do as I sit here at this wedding that my wife told me I had to attend.... BUT they did invent all of these great things, so now this isn't quite as unbearable as it would've been. cheers

Please keep my wife's family in prayer. Her step-sister was riding bikes Saturday evening with her husband right around dark when a distracted driver swerved and hit her at about 60mph. She's in the ICU with a good bit of damage, but alive. Thankfully her head wasn't damaged, but her left leg and pelvis is pretty torn up.

We drove down here to Charleston this afternoon to be of some moral support. Haven't actually seen her yet.

Her name is Helen. I know they had surgery on her left leg and put a bunch of hardware in there to keep everything together. They said something about not being able to go in and "fix" her pelvis, but I don't know the reason. I'll keep y'all posted as I know more....

That's why I bought 2 of them evil 30 round mags. Just so happen one of my guys borrow a .22LR that was same make n model as mine the Remington 597. Only his was camo stock without a scope. It accepted my politically incorrect mag

One of Ben's brothers asked me how many mags did I need for my pistol. I had 3 - 19 rnd and 1 - 13 rnd mag. It came with one of each with a space for 1 more plus pistol foam cutout allows for a 3rd extended mag to be attached to pistol. More is better! I took Cmdr Miguel to the range before this event he suggested I could cutout more room in the compact mag to allow for an extended mag instead. I may just do that.

Definitely learned a bit about .22's semi's and using ammo of sufficient muzzle velocity.

I wish you were closer people think I have a lot of guns...

Shoot!

In Mississippi, I'm barely up to Average.

Throughout different weeks, I can hear people target shooting, and can tell by the cadence of their fire that they are folks who know what they are doing (not just blasting ammunition).

I would venture that there are at least 4 private ranges within a 3 mile circle of my house.

Wow it's been a hard 10 days. Been working about 2 hours a night and my days off getting ready for District Pow Wow.

I took vacation this week. Spent 6 hours each day at the Ranger Annex working on Treasure island Theme stuff. aRRRRRR! Pirates!

I have a 10' long 5 foot wide by 30" deep card board John boat, a 14 foot tall 6 leaf palm tree, a 7'x7' island, A big treasure chest full of coins, jewels and gold, 30 swords, 50 black belts, 50 huge pirate buckles, 10 cedar buckles, 10 cedar swords... All in my truck and trailer and picking up 2 boys in the morning from another church that wasn't going to PowWow.....sad but true.

Best buddie Rob just called an canceled. Family reuion came up all of a sudden.

Kitchen sink just plugged up. Had to put a hose rat in the pipe and blow it clear...now the main bathroom tub is full of black gooey stuff......

It's all good. I am packed and ready for anything. Prayed up, Stayed up and Worked up. Man I will be glad to get back to work.

I did get a new Dewalt 20" scroll saw. It purs like a sewing machine. My other one died last Sunday night in Rangers. This one cost 500.00 smackers...it should work a while. It's quiet and it's fun to cut stuff on it...the rest of them scroll saws... kind of like shooting a 10 gauage after shooting a rifle. Wooo what happen and that sure hurt my arm!!!!

Been busy. Rangering.

Aww you noticed my sidearm bang

Yes, I've gotta keep them wild crazy cowboys in order. I'd say it was rather nice being able to open-carry out there in the country. I wish I could do it more often. Only other time I can O/C is at Gander Mtn.

I was in Basspro getting some blackpowder for the cannon for Pow Wow and I never new there was so many hand guns. While I waited for them to get the powder out of the vault I looked at the hand guns. Hundreds of them. 500 to 1000 bucks.

Boom Boom the cannon shoots a big black smoke ring and will bring all the neighbors out with in a half mile wondering what happend....GRIN!

Picking up 2 boys here in Ozark and meeting at the Ranger Annex leaving in about 40 minutes.

Please pray for us at Pow Wow this year. Our District Commander and his wife have their 50th wedding aniversary on Saturday...they have been celebrating that mostly at PowWow as it almost always hits on that week of Pow wow. We are making a concentrated effort to bring as many boys as we can to Pow Wow.

Leaving from the Church at 9:00 a.m...uh huh..more like 10:00 GRIN!

Will have pictures and video. My job this year is to make a Pow Wow promo video.

Yesterday, A little birdie told me that the Dunham"s (Sports) in town got a big shipment of ammo. Thumbs up

So I hustled over there after work & scored 4 boxes (the limit) of Remington .22LR Thunderbolts @ $2.19 each

This is the first .22 ammo (other than birdshot) I have seen in town since January. So I hurried home (2 blocks away) & sent Christi back to score 4 more!



Selfish? yep. Mr Green

But since I have a job, I can't stand around every morning, waiting for Walmart & Dunhams to open to grab up every last shell, like some folks around here do. (the store clerks tell me that there are people who do that every morning) Rolling Eyes

I remember when I could buy that stuff at the Western Auto for 78 cents per box (and sales tax was 3% then).

I remember Western Auto!

I heard that at Gander too there's people who go every Fri morning. If I was 3rd shift or 2nd shift I'd be there too. I saw some older folks and best buy tech. Some jobs open later or they work shifts opposite of stores opening. Some may have been retired.

Is .22 anmo the only kind that you have to be sure to check the muzzle velocities when firing them from a semi auto?

Pretty much. The thing with .22's is that they can range from 35 grain to 60 grain bullets, and some are loaded to sub-sonic, some are target velocity, and some are high-velocity.

In fact, I have an old Coast-to-Coast Marlin semi-auto (armadillo gun with a red-dot scope), and it does not reliably shoot real high velocity ammunition. The thing that it shoots without a hiccup is Winchester Dyna-Point. And that is kind-of mid-range ammunition.

I can't think of any other factory manufactured ammunition that doesn't reliably cycle automatics for their caliber - other than some semi-automatic shotguns, which seem to be ammunition and pressure sensitive.

(I have heard of some machineguns that don't like civilian ammunition, but that's a whole different set of specs.)
