    Sling Swivels for Marlin...

    Lumpy... I didn't know you were Norwegian~! Not gonna be used for Cowboy shooting. No sling on the 1894 used for Cowboy shooting. This one's gonna be hauled around the hills for hunting. I've had one on my 336 since '71.

    Sling Swivels for Marlin...

    Trying to find a sling swivel setup for a Marlin 1895 Cowboy .45-70, 26" octagon bbl. Was hoping to find a mag tube clamp swivel, but the tube's .706" OD; largest Uncle Mike's I can find is .660". Suggestions?

    When things really get clogged up...

    I know someone who could use one o' those.... Plumbing repairs after one visit cost upwards of seven hundred bucks. Where do I order??

    Dick's considers NO HUNTING GEAR

    Already are and have been ~ that was my assessment of the outfit the first time I walked through one, well before their policy changes.

    Creamy or Chunky

    'Bout the only thing I use PB for any more is cooking my "Spicy Chicken with Mint Leaves" dish. Used to get this at a Thai restaurant in San Francisco ~ they wouldn't part with the formula... but my financial analyst's sister managed to duplicate it and gave me the recipe. SO yummy, and simple! SPICY CHICKEN WITH MINT LEAVES Peanut oil (enough to coat wok) 5 + green onions, chopped 6 - 10 cloves garlic, minced 2 lb chopped or ground chicken (ground turkey is a perfectly acceptable substitute) 4 - 6 Serrano peppers, sliced about 1/8" (fewer if you have a tender constitution) soy sauce to taste and color ½ C peanut butter (minimum) 1 - 2 C mint leaves 1 - 2 C cilantro (May substitute basil for those who are cilantro intolerant) ½ C coarsely ground peanuts Heat oil in wok or large skillet; add onions and garlic, stirring constantly for several seconds. Add meat. Stir (or toss) frequently until beginning to brown; add soy sauce to taste and for color, and add Serrano peppers. When browned add peanut butter. Add mint and cilantro, tossing thoroughly; cook ‘til wilted. Serve over steamed rice, topped with ground peanuts, with extra soy sauce available. * * * * *

    I think they're facebook videos. Android devices don't like 'em.

    New Progressive Boston Prosecutor

    Sounds like California "light." Cutoff for "larceny" here is $950. Crooks will go into shops and carefully select less than $950 worth of goods and bolt. If they get caught, literally a "ticket-able" offense. I read on the "Next Door" site for our neighborhood this morning where someone had stolen some Christmas yard decorations. Homeowner had video, identified the thief, knew where they lived... cops said there was nothing they could do because of the value of the stolen property, plus the homeowner would not be able to prove ownership. But don't you DARE insult a poor crook if ya catch 'em in the act!

    For some reason this makes me think of Lumpy...

    Mebbe it's his avatar.

    Daughter Is driving to Seattle need advice

    Weather permitting, she's best off taking the non-California route - it'll add a few hundred miles to the trip. That could be significant. If the northern routes are stormy, well, Allie and Pat are generally correct about the I-5 route. But snow can be an issue there, too. I've seen it totally messed up in parts of Oregon - but that was in early spring.

    Riled up gizzard

    Good Lord, man...! I'm not even gonna ask what that "straw" procedure entails... but all in all, I reckon this is a darned good incentive to be stayin' home. I will, however, have a snort or two and wish you a full and speedy recovery!
