I really haven't done anything with the page, so I'm gonna turn it into another goddamn operator meme page.

If any of you meme loving fucks have any similar pages that, message me them so I can start getting content.

Lets consider the fact that PBE has all of eternity to dig a tunnel deep enough to evade sensors (I suggest we start the tunnel in Australia) and that several PBE operators are neets with no life. With determination, decades and enough funding for ramen & shovels it could happen. Of course the FBI is reading this and specifically its probably my boss reading it checking up to see that I'm on the job. Not that I am, but I'd lie about that if I was.

I want to address the recent spams on the board as a mod who has been deleting them and later banning.

Based on the IP address of the spammer it is coming from Ukraine and the first set of spam I personally only deleted them and didn't ban. I throw down the ban when the same people spam the second time.

I find it a little insulted they would spam with such small pictures, the 3rd set of spam is also from Ukraine at least they put up a little bit larger pictures.

Lets talk property layout opchan. How would you lay out your ideal/dream residence setup?

Do you plan on having a detached garage, a shop, barn, storage shed, gardens, woods, orchard, pond, guest house, gun range, or close neighbors?

How close would you like to be to a road? What defense considerations would you have? Do you want to have livestock? Do you plan on having kids toys in your yard? How would elevation differences play into your plan?

Feel free to describe or draw out some ideas or post pictures.

I've seriously considered moving from FL to a state where the cost of living is lower, like AL even. Maybe close to the state line where we could still work in FL.

Ideally we'd homestead on a few acres, so light livestock and gardening, composting, recycled rain water for toilets or irrigation, solar panels, well insulated home, the whole nine yards.

No idea where this came from, but for home defense I think the most ridiculous/outlandish thing I've come up with were drop down or pop up heavy steel gauge panels in entrance ways with gun ports, or embrasures on parts of the home. Honestly though, they'd be impractical as hell and probably as useful as czech hedgehogs or faraday cages (where's the reynolds wrap!?).

Mixed feelings about a saferoom, but a bunker could serve multiple purposes... right? Right?!

Fortunately in this day in age there is so much material on homesteading that the groundwork is mostly laid out for you with a little research. Now I would like to have a garage separate from the home, complete with a forge, to work on knives and what have you. I wouldn't want to go too primitive there though.

A barn would be nice for livestock, but I doubt we'd raise that much, and a chicken coop and a few goats would probably do us just fine.

How I structured the layout would depend on the land. I'd try to work with it to get the maximum potential as far as sunlight/irrigation/etc goes. Of course a humble fence would probably suffice for keeping the livestock in and the gawt dang cattle robbers out too. Maybe some razor wire for the chupacabras and coyotes.

I assumed nice wood floors, guessing that nobody on here would be plebian enough to want carpet.

You'd probably want some decent fortifications if you're moving to a state neighboring Florida anyways, since eventually the state is gonna get punished by god/NOAA and you're gonna have to deal with the hordes of boomers fleeing north as the state slips below the waves.
>> No. 106917 ID: 0480d3

Sink, Florida, sink.

I've seen the same estimates, but on the flip side there's a lot of man made intervention to prevent the coast from sinking. I grew up in Vernon and Panama City Beach, so I saw the best of both worlds as far as FL goes. Everyone inland is good, mostly armed, and ready for the rapture/WW3. Those baby boomers on the coast? Not so much.

I do think so minor adjustments to the property could be done to remedy the situation. If we homestead, I do want to be very neighborly with the people close to me. As far as actually fortifications go, it really depends on the property, depending on how it lays, there's a lot of options to fortify a home I think.

Now roof access from inside the home and the addition of gun ports on it could work. A strong roof that could serve as a veranda wouldn't be so bad and the gun ports, oh hell, what's the fancy name for them when they're the arrow slit style on a roof, might even give the home a bit of flair I think.

The idea with the drop down or pop up steel barriers would be for even worse scenarios methinks. Although it might be a fun project all the same.

I know I'll avoid French doors, and I'd rather not have windows on the bottom floor if it's built to our specifications. Maybe some small skylight style 'windows' to offer natural light. I'd want a two story home that's green and mean. Of course some of the modifications I'd want to do myself or with local contractors who didn't know what they were building. Fabricating the steel barriers might not even be that outrageous, but making them look inconspicuous would be tricky. In the end that might only slow people down. You know, unless someone, like myself or the missus happens to be there and is taking advantage of the gun ports.

It's fun to daydream about faux apocalyptic scenarios, but I'm just not convinced it'll happen. Still fortifying a home as a project could be a blast.

Packing up and heading to Atlanta again, to drink too much, gawk at costumes, hang with fellow professionals, and promote my work. Convention is from the 2nd to the 5th, and from what I'm hearing should have around 81k people attending this (number might be a little bit low).

>democrats to take over congress in two months

The smell of fresh paint greeted lawmakers reacquainting themselves with their workplace after their seven-week break.

The scaffolding was coming down, revealing a gleaming dome and, underneath it, restored friezes, oil paintings and statues. The Capitol has been returned to its former glory.

If only they could do the same to Congress.

After their seven-week recess, which included both party conventions and was the longest break since at least 1960, the people’s representatives in the House are back for just four weeks before recessing again until the election — and there has been talk of cutting those four weeks of work to three or even two.

They might as well go home, because the House to-do list could end up looking something like this: Impeach the IRS commissioner. Punish the Democrats. Sue the Saudis.

This is how Donald Trump happened.

Americans are worried and angry about the big issues: stagnant wages, immigration, trade deals, health care, entitlement programs, the tax code, the Zika virus, tainted drinking water. Yet the best Congress can do for the moment is to keep the government running on autopilot for a few more months, and even this isn’t guaranteed.

I was ordering some ammonium nitrate for upcoming GA Operator Range meet and someone said "That's how you get on a list"

BTW This a really good deal

Too many times I heard that and I started to recall what I've done so far that would put me on some "list"
- Immigrated to USA when I was 14 so my finger prints are on a list
- Got more finger prints for CCW in GA so I am on a list
- Bought ammo and guns online so that's on some list
- Has multiple NFA items so on a list for sure
- Imported inherited firearms from Canada which is more ATF dealings
- Became a citizen when I was 19 so probably some kind of list too

>Nice stand!
It's not that impressive when you get a good look at it. I had a few pine 4x4s but not enough to construct all of it so I got some pressure treated ones. Turns out the ones at LOWES are actually 3.75" or some shit. But it is sturdy as fuck and that's all that matters
>Jelly of your anvil.
It's quite nice, it's also slightly magnetic near the pritchel hole. I noticed it when I was forging some curtain tiebacks for a friend. It also came with a hot-cut tool, pic related
>your anvil and safety equipment
I can see that you favor more Romanesque anvils. I also personally eschew wearing gloves and an apron, the gloves are more of a hindrance in my opinion.

I agree about the gloves. The picture is old and I've since ditched them. The apron is nice though because more than once I've glanced myself with a hot piece and best case I'd have ruined my shirt (worst case burned myself). Also it keeps my pants from becoming a filthy mess.

If you don't know already, holy shit don't wear synthetics. Shit will melt to your skin from stray embers.

  Do any of you amateur smiths or wannabe smiths (like myself) watch the show called "Forged in Fire"?

Its hosted by a bunch of cool dudes, two of which are two of my favorite dudes, Will Willis (Ranger, PJ, etc), and Doug Marcaida (knife fightan dude). The other guys are cool. And watching some random smiths turning pieces of scrap metal into cool weapons in a time crunch is fun.

If you are bored and wanna watch knife making shit. Check it out. Season 3 just started recently.

All dimensional lumber is smaller than it's nominal size. A 2x4 is not 2" by 4" either. The nominal dimensions is what the lumber was cut to at the mill, BEFORE it was seasoned and planed. At least, that was how it was done back in the day. But the naming scheme survives.

I don't like gloves either. Some mechanix gloves I tried, but they're also synthetic, and I *like* having my hands so I can jack off. So there's that.

Jeans and a cotton T shirt are what I wear when smithing, because, fuck synthetics, and it keeps you really cool if you're wet.

Did you see the part where the guy really wasn't harassing them at all and Jaelyn was so very intimidated he stuck his head out of their Subway sandwich shop refuge to confront a homeless guy for some reason? And said homeless guy not only punched him but clung to the "fake uber" as they drove off?

And then--then!--this encounter with a homeless guy and a "fake uber" was so traumatic that they could not possibly stay in their apartment. Which is why they have to explain to their youtube channel why they are back in Phoenix so fast.

Closing on a house tomorrow. Closing costs about 2k lower than what I had planed for. VA appraiser appraised the house at a little over 130k...I'm only paying 98.5k for it as the owners are in an unbelievable amount of debt and they NEED the property gone. Me buying barely dents their debt. Not sure how they haven't been foreclosed on but oh well good for me.

Home inspection only found minor stuff. The one thing they couldn't afford to fix is well within my budget and skill level (skirting of the crawlspace is rotted in places). Going to have the crawlspace encapsulated this coming spring and strip/paint the exterior over the summer. Thinking about adding functional shutters too.

I will now have a porch to yell at children to "get off my lawn" from...I'm so happy.

Best part is that the mortgage with all the taxes and insurance and such included is lower than what I pay for rent now. With my current money flow from disability, GI Bill, and a little ebay business I've got going I don't actually need a real job. Going to keep the one I have now so I don't have gaps in my work history and for hobby money. Plan on renting out a room to a frat bro as well so all my bills will be split even. Life is good right now.

Just helped move my mother into a new home last month. The home inspector managed to miss that the A/C unit had no Freon in it at all. We only managed to not burn up the motor because one of the people helping us move noticed the A/C had never turned off in like 12 hours and connected the dots. Anyway, it could pay to get individual things looked at by specialists.

Home Inspector can miss a LOT of stuff, the one we had on the first home missed rotting floor board on the back sliding door and house is on septic instead of sewer like it is listed in the listing.

A lot of the stuff you won't find out till you've lived in it and really explore the house.

Congrats on being a home owner

I spent at least a good month hunting for a shoulder strapped US-made tool bag with individual pockets and maybe or two parts box compartments. Most of the tool bags on the market anywhere close to that description are Chinese imports with thin material and are mostly fold-open doctor-style bags with not nearly enough side pockets, and I hate having to dig around 'em.

The carpenter case by Occidental Leather came close, but I ended up with VetoProPac because while they're made in China, they pretty much satisfied most of the details I was looking for. However, their newer designs include neoprene and their three models that have a laptop compartment are such a high price that I'd only consider for an American made product.

I'll make an announcement when/if I get set up

I used to make stuff exactly like that in the Corps. Thick canvas, webbing reinforcements, pull-dot snaps, and such.

Problem with making stuff like that is people don't actually understand how much those materials cost and how much labor can really go into just one well made tool pouch.

That's why I want to do the one off custom stuff. Person is already willing to pay, will treat the product well, and will likely come back to me for any repairs. Plus making new patterns and the whole problem solving involved with prototyping is actually kind of fun.
