You Americans make me jellus with your snubbies / short barrelled handguns.

Most Canadians are not allowed to own any handguns under 106mm / 4 1/4 inch barrels.

To me it's a dumb Canadian by-law.

A handgun weather it's a 2 inch barrel or a 8 inch barrel or anything in between it's a handgun period.

Drew  If I had to my powders could be whittled down to Varget, Blue dot, and H110 or 296 (same powder)  I keep Unique on hand as it will load anything except a Black Powder firearms given you have loading data to do so it is limited in rifle but still makes a 100 yard hunting load with a heavy cast bullet.

 

I use the same brand of primers CCI and no magnum primers (got out of magnum need some years ago keep to a standardized caliber collection the FAD calibers come and go not that they are not fun or useful but they limit out real quick in range penetration or knock down versus standard offerings or they are too expensive or powerful.  then there is the weight capacity options weight size configuration.

 

pretty much shot them all and they are all fun and interesting at least the accurate and no failures ones ! 

 

Due to the limitations of physical laws you can squeeze out just so much and one or more issues rear their ugly head faster needs heavier jacket or special components to hold to the target and at some point it sheds velocity so quick as trajectory tables or bullets fail.

as of now for the common man 4,000 FPS is a ceiling made of glass maybe but when it is commonplace to exceed that I think it would not be afforded to common people to own it  and high population density makes it tricky to have. I know people do not like to hear it but there are limits either size  time weight effort affordability unless it is government funded where failures are called setbacks.

Attended a gun show yesterday & purchased 2 sets of Seekins scope rings for $15 per set.

It was a bargain considering they go for over $130 plus taxes new per set, in my area.

Ammo prices at the show was outrageous, almost double the cost of retail prices.

Purchased a used iPad mini with 128gb used in mint condition for $170 through the classifieds ads in Kijiji , yesterday.

Will be storing it with survival & prepping information in it.

I will leave it in a EMP cage that I've made, for future use.

I finally broke down and got a new wireless keyboard & mouse it got to the point my "S" "E" and "L' did not work my mouse was getting fickle and it would loose power and just disappear the plus is that this is a set and uses ne USB port over my previous 2 separate units that used 2 ports although I have 8 I have numerous cables and peripheral devices it leaves a port open on the front so I can pop in one of the nulerous flash drives I use.

 

I hope this improves my posts as before I would notice I was missing my "S's" and it was distracting enough I would loose my train of thought.

 

I have already planted my raised beds I have planted tomatoes roma's and better boy, yellow squash Lima beans I have elephant garlic and horse radish as well as multiplying onions.   Just for grins I may plant some jalapeño peppers I always plant Cheyenne peppers and Serrano. Generally I only plant what I use most of,  and it has already broke ground now I just pray we do not get a freak cold spell and it is always possible.

 

I have too many projects I finish them but more pop up like whack a mole lOL.

Could it be that the neighbors cat been playing with your mouse when your not at home.

Been contemplating about starting some seedlings in the past 2 weeks as well.

With the weather patterns going up & down like a yo-yo , I've thought may be not.

This past Saturday it felt like spring in my area.

But weather forecast says cold temperatures are arriving next week again

yesterday I had to cull a hen she was cracking and eating the eggs you can't allow that behavior or else they will damage or eat all the eggs.

 

as of today I have 10 new rabbits from a couple weeks to 4 days old  I can see where I am going to cull 5 and rebuild one cage maybe 2.

 

Pretty easy to rebuild a cage as long as you have cage clips clip pliers wire and sheet metal shears.  I like 1/2 X 1/2 or 1 X1/2 as bunnies are very active even before their eyes are open and if they get drug out of the box while nursing their little feet & legs fall through if you do not have hay covering the wire and it gets trapped and they get scared and break their limbs freaking out.

 

all I know is if I have 2 males / bucks and 4 to 6 females / does I should have enough as every 31 days they have a litter and 6 weeks after they can be culled average litter is 4 to 8 so every 2 1/2 months or 10 weeks expect each doe to  have 4 each so if you have some certain number you need to guesstimate the size of your numbers to get your outcome and all of this is fuzzy math so you could get less or more.

for a hobby I would have 1 buck and 2 doe for 2 people for more family for meat double that number  there are limitations I do not raise in stacked cages as I do not want to clean trays daily and it is more water intensive.

 

A 10 X 20 foot building dirt floor 1/2 sheet metal bottom upper side wire 2 X 4 inch to keep out predators sheet metal roof and door and the door needs to have a top and bottom rail to close against or you will have predators digging under or squeezing through the top.

I use a cross bar simple and no normal critter can open it except a person or large thing with an opposable thumb. a chain locked to the bar keeps it from being raised is even more secure.

 

some of this is repeated as I never know if someone is interested in taking up rabbitry  I have figured out that raising rabbits and chickens is the 2 easiest and have the fastest birth rate to feed and time to table as well you get eggs from chickens and they eat lots of bugs rabbit waste is the best fertilizer as chicken is good but it needs to rest for a year or it is so hot as to kill your garden.

 

I found that put a layer of newspaper inside a large pot to slow water seepage and dirt escaping a layer of poor dirt or sand a layer of rabbit crap and then a layer of potting soil every year a scoop of poop stir up and its ready again. I also dump them into a wheelbarrow and sprinkle some Sevin dust stir it up and repot as I find cut worms in pots placed on bricks also ants both are bad for roots as other insects organic LOL try that and see what you end up with there are some ways to help but certain bugs are not going to be scared off by other plants and tobacco tea has nicotine and that is a poison and is not  as effective as you may have heard I would rather have a case of Sevin dust or liquid than all the alternatives.

Lee makes a sizing die for cast lead bullets if you already have a press if not here is a link to a kit

you need to know what "SIZE" for your barrel / bore size for a common caliber there is a range sometimes a smaller or larger shoots tighter groups once you find that diameter that is all you need to use for that arm.

Today I was late but I did plant my potatoes about 10 and for those that are not knowledgeable about potatoes keep them in a dark place until they sprout from the eyes one tater will sprout 3 + eyes cut the tater so a good chunk is with the sprouted eye and plant about 3 inches deep. they can be grown in a LARGE cardboard box 50 pound feed sacks a stack of LARGE tractor tires in piles of loosen dirt etc you know when they are TATERS when the plant on top dies then dig them up if you like "new potatoes you can dig lightly around and pull them up in a month or so.

 

next I added in lima beans to fill in where the ones I planted a couple weeks ago did not grow probably due to old seed I keep all my seed in a container in the refrigerator or freezer.

transplanted some of my yellow squash last week and they are doing well.  Today I planted some yard long green beans.

I plant for a couple of reasons to have fresh and what is most expensive or unobtainable locally mostly I like Heirloom varieties a few are hybrid but they were bred for disease resistance not resistance to chemicals look up GMO seeds of destruction video on youtube for more information.

I raise my own garlic and multiplying onions and most always cayenne peppers I may do some Jalapeños this year as I like Armadillo eggs this is a recipe take a cut chicken breast about 4 to 6 pieces can be had from one breast take a lice of jalapeño slice up to a half deseeded remove stem & cap and wrap t with the chicken then wrap all that with a slice of bacon pin with a toothpick and bake grill or slow cook in a cast iron pan until chicken is well done. some people put inside the jalapeño cream cheese or some other cheese and I have marinaded my chicken in cheap Italian dressing  I like to make mine like poppers bite size they go well with avocado or ranch dressing even bar-b-q sauce make plenty s they go fast my spread is spanish rice pinto beans and armadillo eggs with a banana pudding fruit cobbler w/ ice cram or flan as a desert.

The okra is doing well and I have 2 more spots to fill and contemplating what but I think it will be mustard greens and kale might split one and do some collards.

Horse radish is invasive LOL had it in a couple of tractor tires stacked and it grew through plastic sign board and sprouted on the side I pulled that one up and planted it near the ones in the tire and it is growing and the area I pulled has another sprout I love horse radish with ham I mix it fresh grated with mayonnaise to taste and white pepper lemon juice a tad and smear it on liberally ! the other root plant I raise is a 15 gallon bucket of ginger I love the scent of crushed ginger leaves I will split it this year into 30 gallon pots and can't wait till I can make fresh ginger ale.

grape along the fence are sprouting leaves blackberry plants are looking good lots of buds on the branches and I pray my figs do better last year was a dud berries did not do well or grapes about half of the previous years output.

Lemon bushes are kicking lots of blooms so by September November ought to have a couple dozen.  I need to replace the key lime that died  I think I will get a few.  Here is my real issue I have a couple of pomegranate trees both are 6 to 7 foot tall and a nd this year will be 3 years so by my reckoning they should leap this year I am just wondering when I will get my first fruit ?  I have given up on peaches as the squirrels raid them before they ripen little b@stards but unless something drastic happens I will have plenty of tree rat meat as I need it. the ground litter of my yard is mostly acorn hulls and pine straw blown in from across the street with oak leaves. 

I also raise Agave because it is one wicked plant spines are like a syringe needle and  aloe vera 2 types one smooth the other variegated spines on it edge aloe can be drunk used as a poultice or dabbed on a rash or burn or sunburn very soothing.

It is a very passive garden it takes little time as it is raised bed or large pots easy to take a chair and do a few a week weeding and checking for invading insects mold or any other manifestation trying to kill my garden off.

my recipe for buckets is drill holes 1/4 to 3/8 inch in the bottom about a dozen or more and put a few bricks then 4 to 6 inches of plain dirt then I fill to half rabbit crap then fill with planters soil and a tad rabbit droppings.  my cages are made from 2X4 inch fence or 4x4 concrete wire 3 to 5 foot I buy scrap or damaged rolls from where ever I can find it. and my insecticide of choice is Sevin dust or liquid I dust or spray fresh unplanted ground to rid existing insects after a few days I plant I try not to use insecticide unless I see a insidious invasion plants can be eaten to nothing even if treated as poison takes time and as the bugs are feasting others come and dine and before the poison kills them they have killed the plant and it takes a season to get one crop so what you loose is crop and some regions you only have one season and the question is do you have more seed for next year or can you last until next year  and some years are a bust in the best of times

2 things you need is 24D and Sevin dust and or liquid neem oil if you have trees that can be invaded by web worms or fungus etc. I also like a balance fertilizer a hand full around in a 3 foot circle ear grape vine or tree is a kick start do it again in a month or so.  these items will be in short or NO supply in a bad time I also keep plenty of kale collard mustard beets etc for the greens and taters  most people do not recognize them as food and that is a benefit to a stealth garden and you can make plots on your route or secondary location.

this may be the novel I never intended to write but there it is.

yea P210sig northern seasons are short but you do have plants that do not mind snow or you could build a hoop house. I have considered one because of intense sun and use a solar barrier on the top 1/3rd.

Went and picked up some 45 gallon square planter buckets  I decided after posting I need more surface area for my ginger and horseradish as it is the roots I want and one 15 gallon bucket is root bound as of now. I think I will go back  and get a couple of fancy tree buckets 30 gallon to transplant my lemon trees in for aesthetics and increased root growth.

I have a few ornamental / flower types but I do not waste water and soil on plants that yield no fruit or vegetables  and  some of what I have flowers / blooms so I do get flowers.

the one thing I suck at is growing cucumbers so far I have never had well formed or plentiful cukes as I do not really eat many it is not devastating only irritating. 

some years back I found I have become sensitive to bell peppers and a friend said that parching them untilthe skin can be removed and then most people are able to eat them again as the skin seems to be the issue  seems to work so far and you can still take and dry these and grind or store them  in jars.

cut a deal for 16 blue nylon 55 gallon barrels has some soap residue just need to wash them out and stack them in the shed.

Back in 1998 a neighbour on my street worked for YMCA as a manager. He would give me two 55 gallon  barrels every month for free. Had close to 100 barrels at one time. LOL. A gave most of it away to buddies & family members. I have about 30 barrels now  being used for storing water for the garden & personal use. I'm fortunate to get them for free, as nowadays I see them used, selling for $20-35 each at certain stores in my area.

Buddy sent me his old laptop so I had to DE-Windize it loaded Linux-Lite 3.4

it comes in 32 and 64 bit flavors here Linuxlite ISO download

Ok you download the one your computer can run most CD DVD burning software can burn an image or ISO once that is done set your computer to boot from your optical drive IE CD DVD you have to have a DVD drive as the image is almost 1 gig in size if you have an older computer one of the PUPPY LINUX versions will probably work some of the issues are sound networking and video but most have the drivers that can run most laptops and desktops and the Linux community has posted problems and solutions.

For a list of Linux down loadable distributions here distrowatch.com

there are LIVE versions which means it will run from your CD DVD drive without installing. and most all the software is  free some is ported to Windows / has a windows version and a free version of office that will save a chunk of change for you.

Started my second batch of seedlings today, as for my first batch 80% of them died do to frost at night. 

Do to the odd weather lately in my area, starting seedlings again at the tail end of April is very unusual for me.

Im hoping I'll be able to harvest some food in my garden later this fall  season.

Only time will tell if I do get something out of the garden this year.

you need to save your milk jugs cut out the bottom and set them on your seedlings it will prevent frost bite until the plant is hardened enough to survive. and they stack well with the bottom out.

if you have a lot of plants a visqueen tent works as well.

    • AlGore, has always been all about the money. He, like J@ckson and Sharpton, have found a way to “cash in”. None of then can even spell ethics, much less engage in it.
    • It seems that global warming is a misnomer or better yet a bust.  Weather is NOT a linear thing there are decades that are dry called droughts and rainy seasons even in desert areas.  Climatologists should be very ashamed of themselves for jumping on the global warming bandwagon it is suppose to be a science but they turned it into a side show marketing the Kyoto treaty carbon tax and here again Trump was right by pulling out of the Paris accord  as any fuel and many products would have skyrocketed in price over night. This area sees this kind of weather every 10 to 20 years and I am glad this will kill off many ticks fleas limit insects come spring.  This is a natural defense that helps mankind the earth is an amazing thing it can heal itself and overcome things mankind thinks we need to have a superfund for I would love to see all these "funds" audited, and I bet my bippy they have figured out how to clean them out. just like every other cash cow they make up out of paper telling us all kinds of bedtime stories of how they are looking out for us. We are praying for everyone north it is going to be a long bitter winter and please all of you take safety seriously drive like your bringing your first child home from the hospital try to be a good neighbor check on each other in times like this people trying to stay warm die from carbon monoxide in their homes and sometimes stuck in a snowbank in their vehicles. never use charcoal indoors be very careful with liquid fuels and make sure appliances can be used indoors for heating r cooking purposes, still make sure of proper ventilation.  you can use aluminum foil between your sock and shoe or between 2 socks. just wrap lower foot not the whole foot maybe 3/4 air flow to prevent foot sweating because that will make your feet freeze or get really cold.  Layers and even a slicker suit to cut the wind your vehicle should have supplies in case that your stranded.   
    • Wind in trees is diffused unless its broadside in an open area in hunting distances of less than 200 yards i would keep my hunting shots 100 to max 150 for so many reasons but mainly flight time, bullet performance, back stop /other hunters safety as bullets can travel 1.5 miles take right angles on ricochets so better to be cautious IMO. I have shot most all my groups less than a pack of cigarettes at 300 wind rain (lots of that sh*t) sleet or hail including heat waves or mirage effect. it is beyond 300 where in most people start to have a problem mostly because they do not have access to ranges that long and time to practice. friends of mine all come to the same conclusion that most figure if they can hit a pie plate at a hundred it's good to hunt with and that is scary for the animal I mean  Other accuracy is not vetted on the same curve or rules instead of subsistence it is existence and that is a whole different game and the rules are rough to nonexistent. 
    • well testing continues cans laid down in 2012 only less than 1% had issues it was obvious  indent was weak or puffed up [ can ends] this was remotely stored stable temp in a root cellar.  some items need to be dried / flaked like potatoes highly acidic fruits should be bought in jars like fruits pickles or peppers. My original thought was long term dehydrated or freeze dried got in 2000 and are unaffected .  A can / soda rack oldest first shows the best method for rotation in 2 to 3 years everything shou;d be used and refreshed so there should never be any loss. to refresh the home made desiccant /O2 / oxygen absorbers   patch of 100% cotton piece of 4 ought steel wool about a teaspoon worth {scant drop of water on it}  top with 1/2 teaspoon canning salt wrapped in the cotton patch & tied with bread ties dropped into a quart to a gallon jar to store dried stuff like beans  store in a cool dark place. Steel absorbs oxygen when it turns to rust salt also absorbs dampness all of these including cotton are edible / will not bother you in tiny amounts bot do remove the O2 or Oxygen from inside of containers the size of the absorber would be the internal size of your container and I would use more than just a BIG SINGLE as in a confined space depending on pack density one will not effect the whole area within the lets say a drum. * canning salt has no other elements like Iodine etc. it is also good for canning A good source of "PURE" salt is water treatment (softner) salt you can find it at China mart and harware stores for 5 bucks for 40 pounds get granular not pellets it is more useful in that medium as it is easier to measure /use. store in snap lid 5 gallon buckets with a seal in the lid this lasts as long as the buckets. I buy buckets or get them free from POOL companies these are bleach pucks or pellets I salvage all the dry bleach and place in a single bucket and in / on an area where the runoff will not kill grass or my plants or bleach stone or concrete,  I wash out all the buckets and lids allow to completely dry and seal the lid and store until I need them.   Grain or flour or meal needs to be frozen 10 days wrapped in a large towel and allowed to slowly come to room temperature so as not to absorb moisture from the air after 2 days place in a Mylar bag I get mine from www.beprepared.com Ffill the bag wipe dust from left over inner bag with dry paper towel remove all the air twist bend back to it self and tie very tight with a piece of cord fit into bucket and seal I have used flour after 10 years with no appreciable difference in taste  freezing removes moisture kills insect larvae which is in ALL flours and grains or else you will open your bag and it will be filled with weevils in an emergency you can use a sifter to remove them but why have them at all. Dried bleach / powdered or in pucks CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO GET WET IN A BUCKET !!! THEY WILL BUILD UP HEAT AND GO BOOM !  so make sure if you want to safe it seal the lid well and store in a cool dry place until you need it. Survival is not ONE thing it is  broad base of knowledge it is so vast that I would cut paste and use your office program to make documents print and make a preppers notebook in case you need a hard copy,  as well as save files and videos on a flash drive.  Keeping recipes for quick breads so you do not have to waste hours making old fashion recipes and using a lot of resources too cook, find the best method try and test for taste and how long it lasts. I had a devil of a time tracking down a good pilot rackers  recipe because many use oil and oils get rancid and make the crackers taste very bad, This is why stored crackers after a few onths taste like crap crackers will also absorb scents or even pickup dusty odors so pilot crackers need to be stored in a air tight jar or I buy #10 canned pilot crackers. breads and cakes can be cooked in a Iron skillet under low to medium heat but you need oil / cooking  grease or fat. One last bit is you can buy 5 gallon buckets of cooking lard you can repack in mason jars and can them in a bath canner make sure the edge of the jar is clean before placing the lid before you place them in the bath canner after they cool they will seal or PING those that don't you can reclean the jar edge and use a NEW lid and try again or just use it first --- keep open ones closed in a cool or refrigerated place until you need it. All of you thinking you don't use "LARD" or need it think again, manufactured "FOOD" like twink'les and other such items use all kinds of oils greases and saturated and non saturated oils and fats  labeled in such a way you have no idea that they are actually FAT. some are very bad for your cholesterol count !  the best pie crust is made from flour pinch of salt and using a dough cutter cutting in "lard" there is also vegetable lard as it does not burn as easily as butter. it is flaky light and OH SO GOOD ! for cobblers pies and Quiche's although Quiche is not considered a Man's food (thats just silly) it is a good way to use up excess eggs before they go bad and make them into a good hearty meal you can add left over meat vegetables and greens in them. Frying was a way to add texture flavor and caloric value like gravy potatoes and breads  in the old world people actually worked in all kinds of weather and needed the extra fat and calories to sustain them in hard labor over hours in the cold you body need fats and oils to make your skin elastic and build most every type of cell by converting it to collagen the basic building block for all cells. I have eaten "fried" biscuits over a coal fire cooked in an iron skillet because we were camping and had no oven made cake in a dutch oven  I guess if i had to make an extended camp or old homestead I would have a griddle fry pan 2/ lid and a dutch oven in cast iron they are heavy but nothing cooks like cast iron after you wipe it out wipe on a bit of lard heat it and store it for the next use it does not need to be "washed" the seasoning "baked on oil" makes it fairly non stick a hot pan sticks less start from a cold pan will stick every time. Dutch ovens can be hung over the fore with a triple tree on a chain placed in or buried in the coals or next to them as tour heat recipes needs allow. accessories should be a stainless spatula regular spoon, slotted spoon, ladle and carving fork a measuring cup flour sifter flour bucket or can w/ lid  chain hook on each end  and three legged  "dog"   to hold your pot and kettle over the fire you need a bowl for making bread a cutting board and a rolling pin and your going to need a big mule to haul all of it including tents tarps and sheets I would carry stainless mess trays and coffee cups as well as a coffee pot with peculator "guts"  at least 12 cups as you need hot water for cleaning scalding hot drinks and to tote water OH and a stainless bucket. just remember everything is HOT and needs a glove rag or mitt to handle we ain't talking prissy kitchen cooking of today !
