Watched that show a couple times years ago, wife forbid anymore cause I  scream, call them idiots and throw things at the TV.

I tend to understand, however I suppose I'd rather watch this for the occasional glimpse of a cool Indian , Harley  etc. or old car , than watch
the insipid network " Two Broke Girls "  Rosanne "  or network news ...

And beats , Paul Sr. & Paul Jr trading blows or the morons on Pawn Stars

Howdy all, bottom just dropped out here with rain coming down heavy. Gonna grill in a couple of minutes, love having the pavilion thing over the patio. Del Riley is looking good! Picked up my Hi Power from my gunsmith today, I could not get the magazine safety out, so he knocked it out for me. Made it look soooo easy, [wanders off muttering]

Told the TV thing to kiss my you know what a long time ago.  Think I watched 3, they paid too much for a 40-41 Plymouth coupe, missed a early 50's 4WD Ferguson tractor, walked right by, they are from Iowa for damned sakes,  people would give their first born child for that.

Also never even seemed to notice what looked like an Officer's  trapdoor on a wall but was excited about s dirty worn out Stetson.  Nope, all them shows like that lower your IQ for days.

Major have you fired your newest aquistion- the 1911?

Glen they don?t buy tractors- but if you watch the shows you can figure out who has it if you want it. They pay way too much for barn find cars.  They like loading the van with stuff they can physically load themselves.  Half of it doesn?t ever make there stores. Look at the walls in Cracker Barrel.

A friend of mine was on that show, He has a collection of Packards including serial number 1 of a 1957 Convertible. He told me that the stuff they "Bought" on camera was just window dressing with most of it staying with him. He also said that they have a couple semi's that they put the stuff in that they do take as well as a huge class A motor coach that they sleep in. The whole show is pretty much fake.

Yep !  actually its is all smoke & mirrors.... in fact the two Mike & Frank don't cut the deals....the producers have already cut the deals , the haggling is all scripted.
Prices have already been set or paid.
The two (Mike & Frank) thou their background is mostly fact , they don't do the day to day travel anymore,  they come in to shoot the episode.
The Motor home is on set comfort, the boys do not sleep in.
Both are Millionaire, Mike being the wealthier of the two, both have had legal woes , with regards to the show suits have been leveled at Frank.

The Iowa store, and for that matter the Nashville outlet both have day to day staff ...not the cast , I:E , Frank, Mike or Dani
and the biggest traffic of patrons to the stores are for Tee Shirts & TV show merchandise.

 Like all the so call reality shows....little of what you see is !  and it is all loosely choreographed.

It is spoon fed Pablum ,  but beats the insipid laugh tracked , every line a zinger talkback or sexual innuendo  of the BS Networks.

No Sir , I have not yet had the opportunity.... 9-4:30ing has me cowed , and downpours when I get to the Home 20 have stymied me...
I have yet to even field strip ( it is NIB) and detail clean & lube , as is my SOP ?

However, I plan a PTO day Friday

And that is the reason I gave up TV years ago, didn't take much watching to figure out it was all bullshit.

I decided years ago I have no reason to inflict bs on myself.

We at least realize ,most that stuff is fake, too much of the rest of the world don't.

Evening all.

Weather was sunny and hot. I didn't fly this morning because I was too tired from not being able to sleep.

In other news, I'm putting in my two weeks notice at this place I'm working right now. They've pushed too many of my buttons for a place only offering $10.25 with no benefits for full time work.  Working me twelve days straight but with the hours spread so I don't get any over time, except for one day where I worked 11.5 hours but only got 3 hours of OT.  Then I got chewed out for working so long because I was supposed to clock out and not get overtime, but nobody told me that. Then yesterday the boss came in three separate times to tell me specifically that the paperwork keeps coming up wrong, when I very rarely do the paperwork. An when I do, it usually comes up just as accurate as the managers' (+/-20?). None of the other employees got that visit.

I nearly walked out yesterday, but I decided to be professional and give two weeks.  I have an interview at Scheels tomorrow, and I'm waiting to hear back from Cabela's, so I have options.

I'll put the soap box away now.

Ever wonder why the help at C stores is often not the best.  Low wages and crappy working conditions.

Coffee is up-


TK six or seven years ago TownPump told me I didn?t have enough experiance to work the overnight shift. I really didn?t want to work there anyways.


M2 I have the same model and really abuse it - no complaints about it. I have changed the grips and saved the factory ones and a set of mother of Pearl grips for it.  The factory holster works pretty good also. I use several type holsters though. Mostly a pancake style.

Hadn't planned to carry , I have several 1911's  & A1's

I was looking at maybe getting a Colt 1991 ...(really wanted a Colt 2011 re-issue WW1 redue but they were limited to 1500 guns and now north of 2 grand)




This other guy happens in to my friendly LGS on Friday with the NIB Springfield Armory Mil-spec ( NIB w/ 2 mags, belt carry & mag carry Kydex ) to consign
he asking $550 he's  motivated and say's he take 500 , he wants to get a Glock 17 Gen. 4

Well now I just happen to have Glock 17 Gen. ( I won as door prize ) so the trade is cast ! 
He got what he wanted...and I scored BIG TIME .... I had nothing in the Glock and it was gathering dust.

I'm a 1911 fan ....Glock was OK, but I only shot it once or twice and it was stuck in the back of the safe, To large to CCW without printing

Same set up as mine. Never got use to mag carrier and opted for another style.

Yeah I had bought the pimp grips for Wild Bunch- heck I bought the gun for that. I since found a nice set of double diamond grips that are in it now. I do carry it. I have had spent a lot of time at the range with it. It shoots better than I do, not ammo finicky only hiccups have been my fault.
I do practice with a dummy round in a mag. To build clearing skills. To get my guard card they did this too. That and one handed mag change with hand behind your back.

Good morning folks. Working on a pot of fresh ground coffee, gonna have lunch with TLOTH and knock out some indoor errands today. Supposed to hit 90+ so indoor AC sounds good! TK, I understand, retired now and took a part time job at Rural King just to get out of the house. They kept jerking me around on requested days off, so my wife was like, just quit. Smart lady, no taste in men, but she's a sweetie!

Because they don't call old pharts back who apply.

Young managers are afraid they'll be shown up.  Young assistant manager of one told me that and he has no say in who the manager hires.
