I guess this is an example of "each has his own taste".
 30 years ago I got a burger from Wendy's made with Rancid Beef... spit out the first bite.
Swore I'd never go back and have kept that promise.
I remember their "chili" was more like tomato water with yesterdays burgers crumbled in.

While I do like a QP w/cheese from Mac-n-Dons, I miss their "old Fries"

BK is my favorite of the 3
Gimme a  Whopper, Original Chicken, or simple Cheese Burger, anytime.
Heck,  just the smell driving past a Burger King makes my mouth water.
That's about right on the Chili.
The burgers have about 5 minutes on the holding grill before they get set aside for chilli meat, then we take a tater masher to it, put it in a bag, and freeze it for chilli.

I don't eat chilli but while it has a pleasant smell I would not eat our chilli if I did.

I don't know how everybody else does things, but I imagine all fast food places do things people would rather not know about.

well me I am not a springer guy but did order one to give a trigger tune and then give as a stocking stuffer to my youngest...

near the same price as the clearance 1377 I gave her a couple years ago...Was going to get her a 880 to go with her 953 for more $...probably still will...when they are back in stock.. ;)

the one thing that does bother me a  bit is that the barrel looks pretty skinny for a barrel cocker....does any one know the diameter..?  thinking  I will sleeve it and maybe make a short partial shroud for it...

checked with digital calipers
 it is a 15mm  barrel

Thanks Bill!

HAHAHA!

Funny story John
Decades ago, when my wife was at a Cheer-leader camp, they competed against a school for the deaf.
Being Cheer-Leaders each team "cheered" the others on.
 When they wanted to support the girls from the Special Needs school they decided to make signs to hold up for support.
 One of the girls said "Write it REALLY BIG so the can hear it"...
  ;D :o ::) :P

Not carmakers....fast food burger joints. Since giving up the Creature I've lost a bunch of weight and dabbled in fast food, but have since given that up too (I was just changing seats on the Titanic). In these parts it's McDonald's, Burger King, and Wendy's. Something has to be said for a Dave's Triple. Their fries even rival McDonald's now. McDonald's makes the best chicken sandwiches, and Burger King just flat out not worthy all around. Change my mind.
Our fries are better now, but I still won't eat them even though they're free for me.

McDonald's fries are still the best in my opinion,  next would be Jack in the box , but in general the best fries are now at KFC.
The curly fries from Jack in the box are great too.
McDonald's has the best nuggets, next would be the stars from Carl's JR, the Wendy's nuggets, Jack in the box, and BK nuggets are the worst.

BtW don't count on the fries at Wendy's always being the good ones just yet.
They've got about a year on them, and we still get a case or two of the other fries in our delivery every week.

It'll probably be awhile before the stock of the old fries is used up.

Shootin all day, will fill the tank before momma gets home from work but I'm tethered to a full 65 sq ft tank (20MPa) and plan on going through a couple tins of CPHP's today. Imagine... the whole day with my DARlings! (Sigh....  ;D )

Carter:
Do me a favor and sometime record you "primitive fishing interpretive program".. I am really interested as to what that is.

Today, 59 years ago, my Mom was giving birth.
 My plans today are watch GRIT, Surf the interwebs, shoot as many guns as physically possible, take a nap... shoot some more.
 Then we are going to Mom's and take her out to dinner for giving me the gift of life at the restaurant of my choice. Salvatori's Italian Eatery

It's only 8:00 and the sun is coming up to a perfectly calm, clear day. GRIT is on and I am posting on GTA. (so far so good)  :D

Happy Birthday Scott!!!


I had to shout so you could hear me... old man!  ;D

Back Room / Re: Chain saw chains
« Last post by Firewalker on Today at 12:39:45 PM »
Since I live on the edge of a large state forest, I get to hear all sorts of anecdotes about logging, skidding, cutting, saws and chains, sharpeners and methods. There are merits to all methods but for us here with all this white oak, square cut sharpening ends up eating chains really fast since the hard wood we have takes off that nice burr you get with square cut sharpening.

For pulpwood, square cut is great, very fast cut with good chip removal but I found that proper round burr sharpening to restore the burr on the tooth did an exceptional job both with keeping the cutting edge sharp and extending the chain life significantly. One of our maintenance guys operates a commercial pulpwood/framing lumber sawmill and is a really nasty sort when it comes to sharpening methodology but he gets a dozen sharpening's per chain before it's trash.

The material removal on a chain with square cut sharpening can be rather extreme IMHO. Or as the kids say, "you do you, boo.".

Guiltyoftreeson is a great channel, I have been subscribed for a while now. Also, Oregon has a good printable instruction sheet for square filing.

German AirGun Gate / Re: Diana 350-in .177-anything bad about it-
« Last post by phoebeisis on Today at 12:29:35 PM »
The below  are from a site called straight shooters(I think)

They tested Diana 350 magnum .177   and .22.  Velocities are lower than the up to 1300 fps  suggested in this thread-fastest was 1198-pretty fast but not 1300 fps-a little oil

would sure boost it to 1300 or more

Two .177 still had 11 ft lbs at 50 yards- 3 .22 had 14 ft lbs at  50 yards-   JSBs seemed to hold energy very well-no surprise good BC and heavy- lowest .177 4 ft lbs at 50 yards

I took a cut from JUST the .177 data . Unfortunately it did not copy as posted-so I redid  the first 10 or so  rows

Only 2  of the 33  .177 were  supersonic    1100 fps or more-           and only 3 were 20 ft lbs or more  -23 ft lbs peak

The .22     13/19 were 20 ft lbs  or more-so obviously the 350 is optimized-energy wise-for .22 caliber-

23 ft lbs was best muzzle energy  either caliber-surprised .22 did not  have a higher peak energy-

maybe  just maybe the .22 barrel is relatively  too long-not that velocity is dropping with length(maybe it is  19.5" barrel)

but perhaps the relative  increase in velocity per inch is less with the .22-barrel

- a .22 barrel has about 55% more volume per inch-but the total volume of air they have

to produce energy is the same-so  the .22 is pushing with much lower pressure air as it reaches the end of barrel-

Does anyone have any data on what length of barrel would actually SLOW peak velocity?

I seem to remember 17-18 inches being suggested-on this forum-as being optimum for magnum springer.

I put the first 10 or so in chart form- 1st NAME   2ND CLAIMED WT    3RD ACTUAL WT   4TH  VELOCITY at muzzle  in FPS    5TH energy at muzzle 

The other data  is at    10 yards    25 yards    50 yards-    sorry it is confusing

I am near sighted and wear glasses all the time.

I prefer iron sights over scopes.
