    Study on Alligator Encounters

    This should be required reading for you Florida and Louisiana guys. Could save a life. Not sure if the study would apply equally to Australian crocs or not... maybe the Aussies could let us know what they think...

    Springfield XD / XDM

    I'm saving my nickels and dimes for a new pistol. The Ruger 9mm I have is a dependable chunk of metal, but I don't shoot it particularly well. And it suffers from the malady that all double action autos do - you have to either transition from double action trigger on the first shot to single...

    Pier and Shore Fishings - Jacksonville

    Looks like I will be spending a couple of work weeks in Jacksonville, FL soon (early October). I won't be able to have a boat with me, so I'm thinking about just fishing off a county pier or such in the evenings. Anyone know the area? Where should I fish? What could I fish for? Don't know...

    Trapping Crayfish for Bait

    I need some advice. I know we have crayfish in the local reservoir (Lake Lanier), and I know bass and catfish both like to eat them (autopsies). What's the best way to catch them for bait? Only time I've caught them is in streams and rivers, by turning over good sized rocks. That works ok...

    Stupid Tool Tricks

    OK - here is mine. Share yours if you dare. This is a few years ago. I'd been living in the Midwest for a while and just got transferred back to Georgia. Moved into an apartment for the short run so as to take a look around and see where I wanted to buy. It was a ground floor apartment...

    Favorite Air Rifle Target

    What is your favorite target for plinking? I've tried 9mm shell casings, but unless you are using a scope, that is a short range proposition. Works well in the basement. Need the casings stuck to something or a very heavy platform, so that stray shots don't knock over the casings just by...

    Benjamin 392 on Steroids

    Anyone heard of this outfit? http://www.mac1airgun.com/steriodags.html They modify Benjamin and Sheridan rifles so that they can take up to fourteen pumps (as opposed to the normal eight) and get the velocity up approaching 900fps in a .22 caliber. They also reinforce the lever mechanism, and...

    Home Defense Rifle

    I've been thinking about buying a medium caliber semiauto rifle. Probably a .223, since ammo is readily available. What our loving and caring politicians call an assault rifle. Kind of thing they'd like to protect me from owning. :? Anyone have experience with the Ruger Ranch Rifle...

    Voice Recorder

    Ya'll need to know about what they are doing with data recording in cars these days. Of course most of you realize that with hardware costs shrinking and people expecting more and more performance, the average car today probably has as much computing power on board as the Apollo moon shots did...

    Fingerjoint Splices in Plywood

    There was a thread in the general section - http://www.neilbank.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=6019 - that linked to a video where they were making wooden kayaks in a factory, and instead of scarf joints or butt splices they were using finger joints. There was some discussion about that...

    Keel? Or no Keel?

    My UJ Pirogue is essentially complete. I just lack a bunch of cosmetic sanding before I paint. I am debating whether or not to put a small keel on the bottom to improve tracking and reduce wind drift. I read a post (It may have been on the JEM site) where Mick built a pirogue and put a...

    Uncle John's Pirogue - Pictures

    Now that I seem to have figured out the Photobucket thing, let's see if I can share some build pics. Here is an early pic; sides attached to stem, frames installed. This is far and away the easiest boat I've built. That's a blessing, as I am working long hours lately and a multi-chine hull...

    Building an Uncle John's Pirogue

    Hello, all- I have received my plans from Uncle John and will start building a pirogue very soon. This will be my third plywood boat, and I can see that it will be the simplest that I have built. The ones I've built previously were a Bolger Nymph (8ft long multi-chine stitch and glue dingy)...
