    Citizens Band CB Radio

    Breaker breaker to the undertaker!!! I was never into CB except to repair them. CB is 11 meters and was once a ham band. Many of the old tube transmitters have 11 meters on them. When CB first came about it required getting a permit and a call sign was assigned. Then deregulation and it was a...

    Along the Mountain Trails and River Banks

    Something I wrote a couple of years back. My Stubborn Neighbor (Why some men need female guidance) I see my neighbor, age 82, on his roof, washing it off and then sweeping it clean with a large push broom. We both live by ourselves and are independent. We watch out for each other as others...

    Along the Mountain Trails and River Banks

    I'm not talking to myself I'm just thinking out loud It's acceptable now you see With cell phones and such Hidden memories buried In the recesses of my mind Exhumed without warrant Spout forth intense as a geyser Vocalized without rhyme or reason Baffling listeners ears myself included...

    My Black and White Acrylic American Art

    @Phoenix She would be 50 later this year. Yes, still hard. High cheeks bones are also seen in some from the Middle East and other countries. Genetic DNA testing has really been an eye-opener for so many. It is fun imagining color from old brown and black and white photos.

    My Black and White Acrylic American Art

    @Gary O' Thank you! Another interesting thing is all 5 generations of my immediate family women from her, are about the same height, build, and look very similar except the hairstyle. My face is almost identical to her. Since my only child, a daughter, died shortly after birth, I am the Last of...

    My Black and White Acrylic American Art

    @Phoenix I haven't painted in color for several years. I started in black and white for a show where all artists had to present five black and white studies. I got hooked on it because I like using old photos for inspiration. According to the historical archives where the original photo was...

    My Black and White Acrylic American Art

    A study in black and white acrylic on hard cardboard of my Great Great Grandmother, nickname "Deadeye." All of us women from her have one weak eye and it stays closed more than the other. She was a great shot, but she got her name because she could read people very accurately. She was also a...

    Gun Sales Soaring

    Really Nathan? I have seen Antifa in action and they target anyone that stands in the way of their mission to destroy America as it is. They are the fascists. They recently attacked and tried to burn the Portland Mayors apartment building, with people in it of all races. They have destroyed...

    Gun Sales Soaring

    @Gaer If you just want a home self-defense gun, a shotgun is best. Handguns will require some training and not just safety, you must be able to hit your target and know your range. Another thing to ask yourself is if you could pull the trigger and at what point. If you have never watched anyone...

    Muzzleloading

    I love woodworking although I don't do much anymore. There is a lot of metalwork that goes into a muzzleloader. Getting a clean fit to the wood without gaps isn't easy using handtools. It was a great experience and fun after finishing my log cabin. I fell all the logs and sawed all the timber...

    Muzzleloading

    All muskets are muzzleloaders, but all muzzleloaders are not muskets. A musket is a smoothbore and a muzzleloader is rifled or has lands and grooves in a twist in the barrel. Think muzzleloader as opposed to a breech-loader like the old Henry's "rollingblocks" where a cartridge was put in the...

    Muzzleloading

    Fast Trax -- It is! This is what you are looking at. Tommy --- I shot it several hundred times over the years and sold it 10 years ago. It is a percussion cap. At rendezvous, they set up a 250-yard range in a mountain pasture with a two-foot steel clanger. I knew what elevation to use because I...

    Muzzleloading

    A little something I built the winter of 1978 at my remote mountain log cabin. Built from parts, not a kit. All made using hand tools. The stock was carved from a maple blank.
