I hear ya man. If they want something bad enough they'll take it. That's what insurance is for though. Same could be said about my soft top '12 Rubicon. Not exactly hard to get in to and take. But if they want to drag a couple tons worth of safe out of my house, and I'm not home, there's not much I can do to stop them. My nosey neighbor that stays home all day.....well, that's another story.

Never implied it was impossible. Just impractical. Most evil-doers who have the IQ-power to find me (doesnt take too much cuz like I said, I dont hide)...are smart enough to explore far more fruitful endeavors. Path of least resistance.

Ironically, its the most heavily defended, hardened facilities that make the most tempting targets.

I dont keep a cover on my Jeep. I dont paint over my windows. I dont have a steel door, or concertina wire on my chimney, or intersecting fields of fire covering my front yard. But I do have a dead bolt, a gun safe, and an alarm system with three-modes of communication. Reasonable precautions.

If they can find "me lucky charms"...if they can get to them...if they can keep them...and if they can spirit them away...I'm insured and get a check to upgrade my charms. woo hoo!!!

In the end, insurance is always the game-saver.

LOL....

I've worked waaaayyyyy too many calls on BoH where had thousands of dollars in security systems, and lost tens of thousands of dollars in jewelry, etc...but they didnt have a $200 insurance rider for their belongings.

Peace of mind.

I like guns. However, all of mine accidentally went overboard on a fishing/hunting trip in a very deep lake that I can't recall the name of....
I have a thing for stainless steel Rugers, the funnest are...Mini-14 GBF SS, MkII Target Competition, K10/22T moderately massaged, and others. I carry a Glock 32 (in .40) daily. 2 of my prized favorites are my grandfather's Remington Model 12 .22 pump and Winchester Model 72 bolt, both of which I grew up shooting and I now have! I recently got a GSG-5 1st Anniversary that is an absolute blast to shoot. I just completed a "functioning" AR with an 18" Heavy SS barrel and a few other goodies. It's like a Jeep and is always a work in progress but it's a fine shooter as it sits.

I've often dreamed about building an AR that'll use 10mm ammo....ideally it would even use my Model 20 mags.

The the reality sets in that 10mm is so rare and so expensive thats its fading into oblivion and I should just concentrate on a hot .45 cartridge.

Then I fantasize about the .50 beowulf conversion for a while.

7.62 would be nice, like the AR-10, etc. But I already have the NM-M1A and it doesnt get much better than that for reaching out.

But frankly, 5.56 does wonders on meat...no need to re-invent the wheel.

Actually, I think my next firearm aquisition will be the Kimber .22lr conversion kit for our 1911's.....have a great time plinking away all day long without having to take out a loan.

For the price of the Kimber conversion you can get a GSG/Sig 1911-22. Full size, takes almost any 1911 part for customization, series 80 FCG. I've built mine up quite nice since I bought it.

I am wanting to do a 300 blackout build. Been in love with that round back in the wisper days, but the thought of a wildcat that I have to make my own brass for didnt sound fun on something that I would need bulk ammo for. Check it out for your AR....

ive got one, and i am not impressed. looks good, but has feed issues. i still cant get it to feed right and its been several months of off and on tweaking.

you would be better off picking up a ruger MK II/III or 22/45. i wish i had gone with one of those instead of taking the conversion on a trade. not to mention, picking up any of those rugers can easily be done for less then the conversion cost

it also requires the good premium .22 stuff. still cheaper then a .45, but not as cheap as other .22s

300 AAC Blackout:

Ooooo.... Me Likey!!!

Pretty impressive on paper. Large but light slug should deliver the kenetic energy dump that I prefer over penetration. Seems like a pretty ideal defense/hunting round.

Still a little exotic for my tastes.

But I will definately do a little more research on that cartridge.

Thanks for the heads-up.

Do some research on the wisper/fireball round too. That is the wildcat it was based on. The ability to have 30 rounds of subsonic 30 cal in a normal sized platform (compaired to an AR10 sized) begs to be suppressed.... plus there is no mag mods to speak of, I doubt it will stay exotic long. At least it will be more mainstream than the wolf or socom rounds...

Thanks for the heads-up on the Kimber conversion. I'd read that CCI-Mini-mags would work but the Aguila HyperVel is too much to cycle properly.

I love the Browning, and REALLY like the S&W 41, but I wanted to retain the same ergonomics of our CCW's. The GSG looks interesting...especially since I have a growing pile of spares as I make my mods.

So similar to JEEP ownership. (sigh)

I am currently working on a Winchester Model 70 for a customer. 375 H&H, McMillan Monte Carlo stock aluminum bedded, Douglas #4 barrel, CRF. Customer has been going to South Africa for several years hunting plains game. This year is his first dangerous game hunt. I built a 7mm Weatherby for him years ago that shoots sub MOA.

We own a horse farm that now is without horses as my daughter is grown and no longer rides. We raised Morgans and she showed them for years. We have an indoor riding arena with 18 stalls and a apartment up there. The nice thing it is literally 15 min from my office and we have 200 acres up there with several ponds. I love to go up there and shoot at targets I set up for kicks. I carry a Glock 9 in my Jeep at all times.

Very nice set-up you have there.
Have yall considered Renting out boarding stables?
Give one of the renters a reduced rate in exchange for them managing the other renters.

Of course with the current drought, and the forecast for things to only get worse, I know Hay is like gold down here...so I bet folks are fleeing the livestock lifestyle.

We gone from grazing to growing...more revenue...less maintenance.

Awfully nice to have a private range.

We did give that some thought but decided the revenue from stall rentals would not be that great not to mention so many people think they want a horse to only find out , not so much, and did not want to end up with a revolving door up there with stalls getting torn up ya know. I will eventually sell this property once market improves. It is a beautiful piece of land that sits up very high looking back at downtown Tulsa OK. The views are really exceptional . One of the wing of stalls and the view I spoke of.
