I give that dude credit for the forethought to line that up and pull the trigger on such a successful move!!! That's some serious planning on the fly! LOL

Just today at lunch, 4 lanes going my way, I'm in the far right which turns into and forces you onto the freeway on ramp. It's been backed up a ways and I'm patiently waiting my turn. I swear you guys would probably fall asleep driving with me cause I'm just never in a hurry to get anywhere and have no issues with traffic. Anyways, some dude cuts the whole line and decides I'm the guy he's going to dive in on. He ended up basically having to stop because I wasn't going to give and his other option was to drive right into the end of the deviding wall... Dips hit!

Picked up a new plinker.....Rossi 62 (copy of the original Winchester 62).

Hopefully it'll be a good shooter!

I've only shot a shotgun once but I've thought about picking one up.

So my thoughts and plans are a little goofy, huh Khris? I see how it is, callin me out in public, right? Ok, well you're.....uh....you....your...not orange! Ha, gotcha!
It seems like every day, I see some crazy ish on the road that just surprises me. I shouldn't be surprised any more, but it happens! People wait till the last minute to change lanes when there's a lane closed sign. No one looks ahead, they are all taillight drivers. Looking at the taillights in front of them and no farther! IDIOTS!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

my wife likes to watch the taillights of the car in front of me when we drive. She flips out every time they light up... I just laugh tell her to look in front of that car, there is nothing there. Granted my foot is off the gas and hovering over the brake, but I do not just slam on the brake like half of the other idiots. I am generally watching what traffic is doing as far ahead as I can and base my driving off of that.


Khris, I do not know of many people in this group that would care about you bringing your truck out on runs. We are not the desert wranglers... "WRANGLERS ONLY!!!" haha. Heck Scott always brings his F150 and he even helped tow out Puck on one ride.

Guess there is a pretty bad roll over on 215 north, west of Durango. Sorry pwr, but not pictures. All I can hear is helicopters and sirens. I saw one flying really low when it we had a rain shower pass by, but we thought it was just to get some coverage of a flash flood or something.

The rifle picture made me think of that though... I've been tossing around thoughts of getting one. Not sure why, it'll probably just collect dust and get used like once or twice a year but it's something else that can go bang.

It'll still be a long time till it's ready though unfortunately. I'm actually right now thinking that late winter/early spring I'm going to pickup a completely 100% stock expo in good shape for dirt cheap (easy to find) and just swap everything from mine over to it. I think after I spend the money and take the time to fix all the gremlins and issues with this fixer upper I'd be better off going that route. When I'm done I'll have a flatbed tow away what's left of mine and just donate it or something for tax write off...

Like this one... Just park it in the driveway next to mine and I'd think over about 2-3 weekends I could have everything swapped over. Only custom fab work needed would be the front and rear upper shock mounts and the tabs for the rear fiberglass. Everything else is bolt on... Then put all the stock stuff onto mine quick and ugly style and unload it...

I must have passed through there just before it happened. Hell, maybe I caused it!

Get one. Its a versitile and useful piece of hardware.

Do you not go shooting much in general or just don't really have a use for a shotgun?

Don't go shooting much in general. Too busy 99% of the time to even think to myself that going out shooting would be fun. Like late last week, I had every intention of going to at least spectate a steel competition match last night that's a weekly monday night gig. But over the weekend plans changed and I'm going to be in San Diego this next weekend. That means less progress on this truck build so rather then going to that shooting match you can see what I did last night instead.

Even when I don't have a full race truck build in my lap with a Nov deadline to take some dieing kids on a ride I still tend to be pretty busy in general and time to go shooting just isn't there.

I'm actually a pretty good shot with my pistol but I'm not proficient enough to feel like I'd want to pull it out in a crowd and unload which is why I don't carry for the most part. I do sometimes take it on trips or have it in the vehicle but even though I can hit a circle 99.99999% of the time, doing it in real life with others around is something different. All my practice has been just shooting circles.

Shotgun would just be a toy, pretty much like my pistol. I'd occasionally take it to the boulder members range but that's probably about it.

I did just get 500 rounds for my pistol yesterday. They shipped wrong so it took a bit longer then I'd hoped.

no, makes sense, people have different hobbies and different time commitments, i was just wondering is all.

I probably go shooting too much, and should find something else to work on.....like a jeep.

oh wait.


i probably spend too much time working on my jeep and shooting. i should probably find something else to work on....like my relationship. but wheres the fun in that?

Speaking of relationships, i havent driven my jeep in 4 weeks. its been sitting in storage all covered up.

Funny part is shooting and well, most of my hobbies are kind of expensive. The cool thing about this race truck build is I'm actually able to save some money since I'm not actually funding the build. He's covering all the parts and consumables and even race weekend expenses. I just show up, drive, go home, he gives me money, I fix what we broke, and then repeat. My spending endless hours on it keeps me from spending endless hours doing things that cost me money. LOL

I've come to work on the weekends in the past to help my boss (projects in the shop or whatever) and i've told him the same thing

"you know, i really appreciate this opportunity to help you because its saving me money!" and gave him the same explanation you just did.

Its funny, now he offers to help me save money all the time, haha.
