Kinetic energy test

16 posts in this topic

Totally unintentional this happened when I told my 3.5 year old daughter to hold on to my back pocket when shooting at 30 yards tonight,she decided it would be fun to pull on my pocket when I was squeezing the release. Through the 1x4 ceader on entry across 10 foot hay wagon drive through and burried to the back of the blades into another 1x4. Just glad I didn't hit the wifes saddle or I would never hear the end of it.

I'll never use anything else. Just packed a few for bear next week. Hopefully I'll see what the results of that kinetic energy test will be first hand.

They work great on bears that is why I was shooting them tonight my friend has more bears in his bait than tags and they are hitting all day long so I am providing the reastrant left overs and he is giving me a chance to fill a tag. Good luck on your hunt next week.

If you give me one I will try it for anyone the way I figure it is it allready has one hole in it why not two. I was going to name it let's see a rage do this but didn't want to cause a stir.

I would give you one, but I stick with Slick Tricks as I'm to cheap to buy overpriced Rage's!

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
