Farm Progress February 2017

Tractor moving debris

Time for an update from the farm.

I had some heavy equipment brought out to the farm to move brush, limbs and tree tops. Things are looking up and progress has been made. There is still so much work to do. Small trees need to be be cleared, split and stored, then old fence has to be pulled up.

Hopefully in March I can start setting the first corner post. Maybe sometime this summer start running the first strands of fence.

Why All Handguns Should Be Double Action Only

The Lucky Gunner youtube channel usually puts out some good videos, but I must say this one probably takes the cake.  The guy talking in the video uses various examples with one being from the 1930s where it is suggested that police officers double action only revolvers.  Jjust 1/8 inch of trigger pull can cause […]

Why Is There So Much Hate For Religion

On February 27, 2017 someone on a facebook page posted a picture of a bible being urinated on.  The guy said he was tired of seeing bibles in hotel rooms. I posted a comment that the guy should be banned from the group.  A young lady replied to my comment claiming the the Bible was […]

Starting Spring 2017 Garden

The weather in early 2017 has been unseasonably warm, so I decided to go ahead and start the spring garden a few weeks early.  I usually do not plant until after the Ides of March.  With everything blooming out early and daytime highs hitting the low 80s, I decided to start planting in late February. […]

Almost Time To Plant Potatoes

Around February 14th is usually when potatoes are planted, at least here in the south.  I missed the 14th but will be planting the week of February 20 – 24th. On February 18, 2017 my finance and I went to Circle Three Feed in Jasper Texas.  I bought some chicken feed, bean seed, seed potatoes […]

Why Are Glocks So Popular

Something that caught my eye the other day on youtube, the topic was the new Sig 320 being adopted. Someone said the military needed to get rid of the outdated Beretta design and go with something more modern. Then the person said something along the lines of “modern like a glock.” Or otherwise implied Glock […]

Thrunite TC12 Flashlight Review

The Thrunite TC12 is unique in that it has a built in battery charger.  Plug in a micro-USB cable to charge the flashlight.  While charging the brightness selector button flashes. Being USB rechargeable makes this is an excellent truck, car or nightstand flashlight design.  Keep the Thrunite TC12 in the console or glove box of the […]

Atactical A1 My New Go To Flashlight

Let’s just say that I am very impressed with the Atactical A1 flashlight.  I have had this flashlight for around a month.  During that time it has stayed in a table next to the front door. As some of you know I live in a rural area.  It is not uncommon for the dogs to start […]

The Rise And Decline Of Glock

In 1982 when Glock hit the streets it was thrown to the forefront of the gun control battle by having a polymer frame.  The anti-gun leftist claimed a Glock would slip past airport metal detectors.   The anti-gun media did one thing, they gave Glock all the free advertising the company could want. From 1982 […]

Why I Do Not Like Glocks

Take a safety feature off a chainsaw and you are asking fro trouble.  Yet, Glock fanboys justify the Glock not having a safety? Your finger is not a safety.  There is an old saying, “always assume the presence of a belly button.”  Which means we are all human and we all make mistakes.  Safeties are […]

Setting Deer Stand

Instead of waiting until summer to get your deer stand setup, go ahead and do it right after last years deer season.  Then you have all summer free. Here on the farm a tree limb smashed a deer stand, which was a porta potty.  The fiberglass was smashed. The old stand was pulled off and […]

Looking At A Glock 19

I never cared for the look of a Glock, or the fact that they are made out of a polymer instead of aluminum or steel.  While some of my buddies jumped on the glock bandwagon a decade ago, I stayed with the Beretta 92F and more recently the Remington 1911 R1. To ensure that the […]

Wildlife Habitat At Bug Out Location

A few weeks ago I walked around the property looking for squirrels.  There were a couple of locations that had perfect squirrel habitat, but there were no signs of squirrels being in the area.  There were no pine cones that had been tore apart, no half eaten acorns nor did I see any squirrels. As […]

ARES SCR Generation 2

The ARES SCR Generation 2 lower looks very interesting.  It is a lower that uses a custom AR-15 bolt carrier group along with a standard AR-15 upper. First thing I wondered was how does the ARES SCR work without a buffer?  It uses a buffer like an FN/FAL. Another thing that came to mind was putting […]

Millenials Lack Survival Skills

There is a thread in the survival forum about how Millenials Lack Survival Skills. The opening post links to a page on Foxnews, which links to another page and so on. None of the linked pages outside the forum offer very much information, so I thought I would write my own thoughts on the topic. […]
