Re: Gun control idea

I thought you use a .308 to hunt deer - could be wrong.

On a hunting forum here, the .243 is used by a lot of hunters and they have been successful with it.

I don't own a .308. I hunt with three firearms - a 50 caliber [more]

Re: 401k loan to pay off HELOC

You can only get ~$35k a year into that account between the two of you, period.

Since both of them are age 50, they could get $46k into the accounts.

Re: Cool picnic bench

Is there really a picnic bench. I get a video of nothing, but a kind of shadow.

Am I doing something wrong?

Re: Gun control idea

I have hunted deer with a rifle chambered in 243 Winchester, but even that is a pretty marginal round for deer hunting, IMHO.

It is a very popular round here for deer hunting. It is very effective on deer. Another less popular round [more]

Re: iOS is Android

Off by $10. It's 649, or 2596 for 4 phones. Minus the 476 you paid, that's 2120. It doesn't change the math appreciably — it's still about $59/month.

Math wasn't off. I just wrote the cost per phone wrong in my post.

Re: Gun control idea

As for rifles, I don't see much difference between bolt action and lever when you consider rate of fire and accuracy. As for shotguns, what's a simple one? Single shot, double barrel or pump? I'm assuming semiauto is out.

What's the benefit of that grandfathered contract? Unlimited data? Something else?

They cut the data from unlimited to 6 GB per phone but that is still much better than the 4 GB shared plan under the More Everything Plan which would [more]

Re: Texas cheerleader smiles in dozens of photos

I'm glad to see the meat is going to the poor. Personally, I won't shoot anything that I won't eat. One reason I don't hunt squirrels.

Letter from IRS

I'm guessing many of you have had letters from the IRS so it's not a "OMG, am I being audited" reaction when you get one with their return address on the envelop. I never get mail from them. So I had one of those reactions when I saw the [more]

But when I return to the replies list by any other means replies I already viewed are gone.

Which can be an issue when you receive multiple replies and you respond to one of them.

That's funny, because Apple stores will match prices, and I dare say their customer service is better than any carrier store.
