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).

Anyone else going (besides Mammoth and his kid, probably)?

>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

Since you're thinking of learning the completely hetrosexual arts of blacksmithing, I was wondering about your set-up. Do you have any tools, a place to work, experience? Or do you just have theoretical knowledge?

>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.

>After years of tolerating dissenters who shouted down unpopular speakers on campus, the school is now considering a policy of meting out suspensions, expulsions or other punishment for those it sees as violating free speech rights.
>"We're not opposed to protest. We're opposed to disruption," said Randal Picker, a law professor. "These are university campuses; there should be a lot of activity on them."
>Some students blasted the creation of the committee, calling it an attempt to discourage left-leaning causes.
>"It comes from a place of reputation management, of wanting to preserve the university's image to alumni, to parents, and to try to control the issues that are on the university's agenda," said Cosmo Albrecht, a member of student government and a junior from San Antonio, Texas.
Leftist admits that disruption is his only possible response when faced with opposing points of view.

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.

Well they did strip out a *few* pipes in the couple weeks before I moved in. Turning the water on in my barn for the first time was a little surprising. They also just cut all the copper out of the barn as well, even ripped the junction box out of the wall

>Home inspection only found minor stuff.
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.

Hot off the heels of the Winter Olympics being hosted in a shoddily-built third-world potempkin town populated by packs of wild dogs, this summer's Olympics will be repeating the trend by being hosted in a another third-world shithole populated by starving people and currently undergoing a constitutional crisis and outbreak of a retard babby virus.

So get your bingo cards ready! Will we get a selfie of a Olympic athlete with the gangsters who kidnapped them? Will they get electrocuted by electric showerheads or have to break down the doors to their room? Will Russia manage to find some athletes not suspended for doping that they can field? Will a white person test positive for zika or some horrible flesh-eating disease? Will there be a military coup? Will event venues actually be completed on time?

So far:

A Brazilian soldier shot and killed a jaguar being used as a mascot for a torch ceremony.

They opened a new $12 million dollar elevated bike path along the coast, people were immediately mugged and then it collapsed into the ocean and killed 2+ people.

A Australian gold-medalist had her bicycle stolen by two armed men.

I'm sure it had nothing to do with treating WELFARE MIGRANTS as a fucking nation.

Or allowing men with two functioning testicles producing testosterone to compete with women, but banning those same women if they use synthetic testosterone.

Or the fact that it's not nation vs nation anymore, the point of olympics being a chance to showcase your culture, instead everyone is simply importing mutants from other countries.

gun feels thread.

since that troubled pussy wussy shot all those gay kids in orlando ive noticed im starting to lose my fondness for haz gunz. it's probably been my defining hobby for the past decade and most of my friends are the same way; if i see them for more than a couple minutes we have to TALK ABOUT GUNZ, and im starting to feel like its a stigma. i guess it would be if i lived in nerdy new york or wherever. and i dont wear camo or any mall ninja shit, so there are people way worse than me. but most people dont even know what noveske is, much less care if its better than a bushmaster or del-ton

So we're 2 1/2 month out from November and Hillary is, apparently, favored in electoral votes. The next pres is going to be able to seat four SCOTUS judges and the House may change hands during the next 4-8 years. Furthermore, Trump is really playing at being a conservative in the opinion of many.

How likely do you operators think a new AWB is on the horizon? Would it have a sunset clause this time around? What are you doing/buying to prepare?

Not attempting to say the sky is falling, just interested in the real opinions of operators.

Henry Stimson was 45th and 54th War Secretary under Republican and Democratic Presidents.
Henry Lewis Stimson (September 21, 1867 – October 20, 1950) was an American statesman, lawyer and Republican Party politician and spokesman on foreign policy. He served as Secretary of War (1911–1913) under Republican William Howard Taft, and as Governor-General of the Philippines (1927–1929). As Secretary of State (1929–1933) under Republican President Herbert Hoover, he articulated the Stimson Doctrine which announced American opposition to Japanese expansion in Asia. He again served as Secretary of War (1940–1945) under Democrats Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman, and was a leading hawk calling for war against Germany. During World War II he took charge of raising and training 13 million soldiers and airmen, supervised the spending of a third of the nation's GDP on the Army and the Air Forces, helped formulate military strategy, and oversaw the building and use of the atomic bomb.
