That is an interesting bit of trivia to tell your daughter's first teenage boyfriend along with your wealth of
trivia about composting :-)


Have I ever told you how much I like having you here?

Will have to get my next door neighbor to give ya'll lessons on how to meet your daughters dates at the door. When his daughters were of dating age he would meet the date at the door wearing a cowboy hat, pointed toed boots, a big belt buckle, and a holster with a 357. He would shake the young mans hand while asking in his best Texas drawl, son, what time are you going to have my little girl home tonight. When he did this the first time to his eldest daughter she didn't speak to him for a few weeks, but after a few "meetings" she realized that guys were very respectful and would ask her dad to "dress up" to meet a date.

Guns don't kill people, fathers with pretty daughters do.

Don't forget to mention the access that you have to 1,000's of acres of woodlands!

It is also a good thing to have photos of yourself displaying various kills in the wilds. My DD2's boyfriends were really impressed with the photos I have of all of the "2-legged" kills that I have made in the field. I'm lying about the 2-legged kills, but I do have a few of the 4-legged kills that were within his eyesight. I usually found it time to clean my guns or sharpen my large knives about the time the BF was due to pick her up. Needless to say, I always invited them into the house and into the room where I was working. My shadowbox and swords would also be close enough for them to get a good look at it.

Remember, you only have a short amount of time to impress upon the lad what his actions can cause to occur, afterwards!!!!
The best luck is what you make yourself!

Not to mention this land is filled with quicksand, alligators and feral pigs. smirk

Yep, years of pent-up sadism will be unleashed on the high-school boys who try dating my daughters.

I have finally figured out how to get the bolt removed from the rifle and I have stripped the bolt down to the firing pin. I have come to these conclusions: (I am not a gunsmith so I know I can and may be wrong)

All springs seem to be in good working order

The firing pin is in two pieces (I don't know if it was welded together at some point and broke cleanly or if it is suposed to be in two pieces) the only way i can explain it is like a plunger the spring from the rear of the bolt hits a plunger shaped piece and that in turn hits the firing pin through the hole in the bolt. I couldn't find the digital camera when i had it apart ( it was in my GF's purse and she was out with the kids) But i am plannning on posting some pictures when i get it apart next time.

I was able to put it all back togther.

I think the part of the firing pin that impacts the cartridge is too short. How to rectify this I am not sure of yet.

Thanks everyone for their help and Yoduh while I am about 5 or so years from dealing with the BF situation I am pretty sure i can handle it as i was the big brother and instead of my dad cleaning the guns when my sister got picked up it was I. But i like how your thoughts paralell mine
