    I was deer hunting with a buddy of mine right after the "fall back" time change. He was annoyed that we would probably not see any deer for a week or so. Because they were moving 30 minutes before dark the week before, he said they were probably moving 30 minutes after dark now and it might take them a week to adjust. Since they were moving about 7:00 or so the week before and now it was getting dark at 6:30. I just stared at him for a few seconds. Then I told him I did not think the deer had watches.

    After that, tid-bit of information( by the doctor) I think I'm better of making my next appointment with the villiage Shaman

    I am also curious where the good doctor lives, as I hope he isn't mine.

    I know a guy that thought you could hold the trigger back on a Glock 26 and move the slide back and forth to rapid fire, and I quote the idiot,"like a machine gun"

    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    I know people that think you need a .338 Ultra Mag to kill a whitetail.

    I'm still looking for that "Heat seeking bullets" the one Congress-woman said was one reason for banning AR's.

    You said it! Also, why do they keep putting those "Deer Crossing" signs right where the deer all get hit, you'd think they'd move them to a safer location!

    Regarding bullets in a fire.

    The Mythbusters are not totally right about ammo and heat, at least not in my observation. They are right that loose bullets will likely blow out on the side of the case. In my fire where I lost some significant ammo, I had some bullets flying around, granted they were not nearly at muzzle velocities but they were there. I found many empty cartridge case, typical of being fired, I found holes in tin and spam cans. I found bullets clearly laying on top of my road 100+ feet away from the fire, no cartridge case were ever found anywhere at that distance.

    I believe if the ammo is heated while tightly packed, some can have the tendency to fire the bullet rather than pop the side of the case. The Mythbusters (I enjoy their show) only showed loose ammo being heated.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
