Yup.... during fall harvest and tillage I see a lot of varmits. Would be nice to have a few 410 rounds for some coons and a 45 colt for the yotes 

I think the problem will be that you would have to be pretty darn close to actually hit one with enough bbs to do any damage.

I always hear that the effective range with a.410 shot shell in such a short barrel is like under 7 yards. I would think that a good .22 rifle kept handy or even a 9mm hand gun would be a better choice for what you want to do with it.

Effective range with the .410 Taurus would be approx 10 yds for a "medium spread" pattern.......out to 15 yds for an effective kill, I think. (Birdshot)  Problem is, the Taurus shoots  only  2 3/4" shells, so for buckshot,  only 3" shells, and  3" .410 are filled with (3) 000 buckshot....or shoot #5 or #6 birdshot, but you'll get poor penetration. But whatever works for ya. Don't want to get into a ballistics course here; just what kinda gun do YOU want to own....

I want a Thompson submachine gun with the Cutt's compensater and round drum!!!  RAT-A-TAT-TAT-TAT-TAT!!

And phooey on the muzzle lift!!!   I wouldn't holler about an M1 Garand, either.....:cool:

Sounds about right. The other factor is they make the Judge in a few different barrel lengths which could also affect the range with the shorter barrel ones that people are more apt to purchase for carrying. I would bet that you would only have a chance at a 15 yard effective kill shot with the longest barrel Judge.

The other issue as I see it is how often do you see a coyote or raccoon at 10-15 yds and what is the chance he will still be at 10-15 yds. by the time you get the gun out, get ready and fire?

Don't get me wrong, I think they are cool guns and one is definitely on my list someday as well but I just don't want to see rl_sd spend a good amount of money on something that may not be suited for what he wants to do with it and be disappointed.

How 'bout an AA-12 then? US forces have one of their own; but it's not mentionable here....sorry!     Pick this baby up, along with Boris and Natasha,  and you can get ALL the predators you want, PLUS Mooze und Skwirrel!!! :D

The farmers I know who want to control predators and varmints during the harvest just have a shotgun in the cab. The animals don't have really any fear of the farm machinery so its  pretty easy to stop,get out and take care of business.

You are exactly right. For whatever reason a coon will move out just far enough out of the way of the tractor.... and the next pas do the same... and again, and again. 10 yds is not a problem.

I have other pistols that I could carry as well. Just seems like a hand held scatter gun with the option to throw 45 cal out of the same cylinder intrigues me. Definitely a novelty item none the less...

the other fire arm on the bucket list would be the Ruger Charger, but that comes from my love for the 10/22

Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR.

It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.

We've went over this before but over 85% of this country's population is Christian. Guess who is causing over 85% of the crime?

And actually, there have been terroristic threats against the couple of outed atheists here in Belle Plaine.......;)

Yes we have and still, It only makes sense that if 85% of this country's population identifies as Christian. 85% of the criminals when ask with a check off box on their in-processing form, would identify with what they were raised with as well. Big shock!

By the way that question is on the in-processing forms so the few atheist's and other beliefs can be accommodated during their stay as well. ;)

It doesn't mean that the little Norwegian or German Lutheran ladies down in Belle Plaine are going to gun down Big Dave with their AR's after the church Pot Luck as he walks down the street! Fear-Not Dave.  :lol:

Pagans, most likely. ;)

 

You’re a good debater but even you have to admit your 85% rule would only apply if 85% of the entire population where criminals.

You can have 85% of crime caused by 15% of the population.

So anyway. The gun that I always wanted to get just for the fun factor is the old Ruger 44 mag carbine. Great for short range still Deer hunting through the woods.

The farmer that we use to hunt with before he passed away had one. One day his son was using it and I heard him shoot. When we got back to the truck I said did you shoot?  He said yes I shot all 5 rounds at a running Doe. The darn little gun shoots so fast I only heard 1 or 2 of his shots!  :lol:

Brings back memories and reminds me of something I had totally forgotten!!   Decades ago was at a wilderness cabin with a couple guys and on of them had this carbine. I shot it a few times (open sights) and took it out for a walk next morning. Shot two deer at around 50 yards and they both dropped dead.  Am surprised the item you have in photo has a recoil pad since I do not recall any recoil at all. Always thought it was a handy little piece but never used it again and had no inclination to buy one. Do have a 10-22 of course
(doesn't every home have one:) and other items. Many don't know Ruger makes their BIG rifle in .22 caliber with a laminated stock. Had one with nice Zeiss glass and it was a tack driver.  Don't recall what I did with it.

Okay, back to standby.

Do you know what model that would be?

I suppose it's possible but it's just not reality. The large majority of criminals identify as Christians and that's a fact.

I believe the one I had was just a model #77 but in .22 cal.  It was a very nice rifle but a little heavy to carry squirrel hunting. It was not cheap either. My guess is I traded it for something else that caught my fancy. You know how that goes.

Some even think Christianity is to blame for crime in America.......

Quote

EXCLUSIVE: 'Fundamentalist' Christianity is to blame for crime in America - because the Bible teaches violence and vengeance, claims provocative new book

Criminology professor uses new book to claim evangelicals are fueling crime and violence in the US

Christian Right think America is 'modern day Sodom and Gomorrah' and prefer vengeance to forgiveness, claims Elicka Peterson Sparks 

Singles out Rush Limbaugh for wielding disproportionate influence in American public life

Claims typical Christian fundamentalist uses religion to feel self-righteous and employs double standards in their thinking and judgment

    • We are still going to put a piece along the bottom but I’m not a fan of diamond plate so we are going to try some annondized aluminum.    We were going to get some decals for the side but I was starting to like the plain look so we just went with some small things for now.  I think that about wraps up the outside and I think I have to quit for the night people weren’t kidding when they say writing these up takes awhile. I’ll post the inside stuff tomorrow. 
    • Next up was prepping the studs for the VHB tape. I scratched up each stud with a fine wire wheel attached to a drill then wiped clean with isopropyl. We went with 1/2” VHB tape since we got it for next to nothing. Around the windows and some other areas we did two strips of tape to cover the whole stud but most of the studs that were just getting sheeting we did one strip. I would recommend the 1” though it would be a lot faster.  people are not kidding when they say there are no second chance. The corner piece that is sitting inside had to be kicked off and we never even pressed on it. Good thing we had one extra sheet but no more mistakes could happen after that. The place we were working at had a bender we could use to get our corner bends which worked out great.  The windows are from menards. I custom ordered them which turned out to be cheaper than buying the stock jeldwen ones which didn’t come in the sizes we wanted. The first shipment of windows came in and when I went to pick them up two of the 4 had cracked glass and the guy working goes “so you don’t want these?” I was like no I don’t want a broken window. So we had to go and re order new ones. Two weeks go by and I realized I never got an email confirming my order so I went back in to check on the status of my order and the guy said they never got reordered. At this point I almost lost hope in all of humanity but tried to stay calm. Finally got all the windows installed and the siding put on.  We wanted to try and do rounded wheel well so the picture above is prior to trimming the edges.  We tried using the 1/4” HDPE plastic sheets which looked pretty good. The next day when the sun hit that wheel well it expanded out about 3”. I wanted to screw it down and see if that helped control where it expanded but my brother wanted to scrap that idea. We ended up just using some steel sheeting and welded it up. All the corners and seems where water could get in was welded and then the whole wheel well was welded to the wall studs and a little bit of the frame.    Since the wheel well sees a lot of snow and salt we wanted it to be durable. The Berliner stuff you can buy usually doesn’t hold up so we brought it to a guy and had it sprayed. He said it should last forever and if we ever have any issues just bring it in and they will fix if.  I think they turned out pretty good and I think the rounded look is just something different than the traditional square wheel well.    Our door came from FishnStyle in shakopee, they sell firebrand so this is the same door they use. It’s made by a company called challenger doors.   We cut a piece of aluminum sheeting so it would fit perfectly over the white color it came with. We used the thin VHB seam tape to attach the aluminum sheet to the white aluminum skin of the door. Only other thing we had to do was cut our a small hole so the door handle could go through. The whole door is held on by VHB tape and I also threw in a couple of stainless self tappers since the door came with pre-drilled holes.    For the roof we did a one piece aluminum roof held on by VHB tape. I guess I didn’t take a picture of that but we got it from a local semi trailer repair company in Blaine for a couple hundred bucks  The roof trim is 3”x1/4” aluminum flat stock and the trailer lights are mounted to that. 
    • If the price was right and your happy!👍✌️
    • Next up was cutting all the 2”x1” tubing. My brother picked up this little bandsaw off hsolist that worked pretty well. Using sketch up was great, everything could be laid out and you knew exactly what length to cut everything.    Once everything was cut we started welding it up. Built each wall on saw horses and once we got to the last wall we finally had a system down, go figure.    once we got all the walls made we leveled out the frame. Had to add a bunch of weight to the back to try and get it flat. This is where I wish we had a flat driveway. After we got everything good and level we started welding the walls to the frame and to each other.    The next day was the roof. From looking at other builds I thought people were just running one piece of tubing across and just attaching to the two sides but as we found out that does not work. We tried that and the top of each side wall had way to much of a wavy look. Closer look at other builds looks like people made the roof the same as the walls on some saw horses so everything was square and then set it in between all the outer walls. We ended up doing something similar but we turned the inside roof length piece on its side so it was more of a strong back which minimized any waviness of the tubing. 
    • We were "missing" a few pieces of chicken between the time we took them out of the smoker and put them on the grill with the BBQ sauce. They vanished, I swear!
    • Figured I would post me and my brothers build on here since this is where I got most of the information from. Thanks to lipripper for posting his builds and answering questions. I pretty much based the house off of his with a couple of my own tweaks. Im not sure how pictures are posted on this it’s looking like they will all be at the end of my post so maybe I’ll start with one post then keep adding to it so the pictures stay in some order ( I was bad at taking pictures so I probably missed some stuff) So here we go...   The frame is a Berkon 21’ with a 4’ V galvanized. We called berkon and the guy said they had one frame left and it was $700 cheaper than normal price since they were changing something for ice castle so we put money down to hold it then he called and said ice castle needed it but they were going to make us a new one (this was the start of our struggles). Which actually worked out nice since we could move some bracing around and move the hydraulic pump to a different spot. We had them move the back center brace so we could have 3 holes between our couches similar to papabear. We  thought about doing aluminum but the guy at berkon said the weight savings would only be about 700 lbs and I personally don’t like how aluminum seems to get brittle in the cold.  Prior to getting the frame I tried to order as much stuff as I could think of like others have said to do but since this was our first fish house I wasn’t 100% sure on everything. I used google sketch to layout the studs and the windows. Hoping everything would work out as planned. 
    • Spring only for me, when Orioles first return. Mine never get hit much. 
    • Not sure if somebody put a lot of time in to make this or if it was something Arctic Cat made. I could see someone pulling this around Hay Days.Thought it was just to cool to pass up. 
    • Whatever trades they might make won’t be to make a run. It’s going to be to rebuild. I guess there’s still some interest in Dozier from a couple teams, but otherwise, we don’t have much trade value in anyone. I’m just still hoping we finish .500.
