Well the rain finally hit me! We had another gully washer today on top of the already saturated earth, so my septic system at my shop backed up out of the floor drain and flooded my shop with biological warfare. I finally cut open the system at a lower level than the shop to relieve the back flow, but it had already flooded. Yuck! Anyway, it's supposed to stop raining tonight and be sunny tomorrow, so I'll be pulling everything out tomorrow after church to sort through what needs to be thrown away and what can be cleaned and saved.

I have shot U.S. stuff from WWII with virtually no misfires.

Your mentioned key-words "Cool, Dry" are the real secret.  U.S. Military Primers are pretty stable.  However, various U.S. Military Contractors manufactured corrosively-primed ammunition up through 1956, so anything with a headstamp year of "57" or later should be safe.

Ammunition manufactured in Europe and the Middle East have had corrosive primers up through the 1980's and later.  Also, I have heard numerous reports of Middle Eastern 8mm ammunition manufactured in the 1950's and 1960's having a high number of Misfires, Hangfires, and Pfffst's.  Again, 'most all Middle Eastern Ammunition should be considered corrosive, unless proven otherwise. (Now, this does not apply to current "Hansen", "PRVI", "Eley", or Commercial Russian (Brown Bear, Tula, etc) ammunition.)

So, if we are speaking of U.S. Military or Commercial Ammunition (with controlled storage):
3 years of less: Critical Use (Carry Ammunition or "Nightstand" Ammunition)
10 years or less: Hunting and Competition Ammunition
1957 or later: Target Practice and Shooting Drills.

My Backyard is a lake from October until March. We live in a low area and we have a high water table too. Also we are dealing with that past 24 hours of rain, the remnants of Hurricane Oho. Wind is gone now and most of the rain is stopped. I should had invested in a boat and a life jacket for my dog.

I love life on the wet coast.

Actually I live in the Canadian "Tropics". It's doesn't snow here much, let alone get down below 0 degrees (that's 32 degrees for you guys). I can't keep food outside in my garage other then in the deep freeze. I don't even own a winter jacket, just layer up with my waterproof coat.

Well, you can sure knock the wind out of my punch-line. Neutral

By the way............

How come, we were the first colony to break away from England, and are the only one keeping the Imperial System?

Seems like we Yanks have more reverence for "Mother England's" Traditions than Canada & Australia.

Actually, we're just the stubborn ones. When I was a student (a long time ago), teachers told us we had to learn metric because we were switching any day now.

But isn't it just more for the exotics though? I thought home grown stuff was still in pounds, quarters, dimes, etc.

I think I heard that from someone one time.... Embarassed

I have heard pot measured in ounces. Its funny how we often switch off and on to metric. I asked a gun salesman what 9mm was in inches/caliber be said its just 9mm lol. I don't think people realize most calibers are inches standard and some are metric due to being NATO. Homocide life on the streets was just 20 miles away from my hometown lol.

Sure, Phil.

Want me to put you down for a Q.P.?

You can break it into O.Z.'s, mark it up $20.00 each, and have $80.00 for a couple hours of work.

(Oh, by the way, be sure to drive your best, most expensive vehicle (that is paid off) when you go to pick it up.)

When I joined the Forces I swear/affirm allegiance to Queen Elizabeth. We have the "RCMP, RCAF, RCN, etc... the R in all of those stands for Royal.

We can't let go of her.. mind you, I like her better then most politicians.

Had a pretty good game last night. Seth took the mound in the last two innings to finish the game. He's doing pretty well pitching, but Phillip Jr wowed us all at Monday night's game. He was sent to the mound and threw for the last four innings. He's got the funkiest pitch that makes it hard on a batter.

Anyway, they both seem to be having a good time being on the same team. They'll be able to do this again in the spring, but then Jr ages up to the next level.

Old school! The Navy, concerned over its 100% reliance on GPS, is returning to celestial navigation training. That was my enlisted bread and butter. Although it's been 30 years since I picked up a sextant, I could stand on a bridge wing tonight and work out a ship's position. Warms me just thinking about it.
