Springer Spaniel dog showing off her fancy footwork

My sister and her Springer Spaniel has been staying with me the past few months because her husband is on Deployment. Recently I figured out that she really loves chasing bugs, which also includes light reflections that move. This is a great way to wear her out so she is not bugging me constantly :). She is shaved because she has allergies and is also partially bald on her back because of a skin condition.

Cocker Spaniel Puppy chasing Outward Hound Invincibles Snake Stuffingless Plush Dog Toy

Cocker Spaniel Puppy chasing Outward Hound Invincibles Snake around her “dad”. I started recording this video about 20 minutes after she started. At first she was chasing it around a lot faster and catching it but she had really gotten tired by the time I started the video. These toys are super well made and with several dogs playing with them most of the squeakers work still after 6 years of play. You can get these toys here https://amzn.to/2KBOJC0

TireJect tire sealant 1 month test on rotted 50 psi cart tires that would not hold air

Checking on the cart tires a month after getting them to seal using TireJect. I put 45 psi in these tires a month ago and they don’t appear to have lost any air pressure. Before I put the Tireject in they would not even hold air for a day. All the other tires from the 8 month test video are still holding air without having to add any pressure. You can check out that video here https://youtu.be/aKfUpNPZQQI

I did receive some Tireject for free to test. But i have also paid for as much if not more because I have been so happy with the product. You can order your own here https://amzn.to/2ogSvYe

IDPA match shooting my Glock 17 at the Hibbing Minnesota range 2012 Stage 3

I took my gen 3 glock 17 to the Hibbing, MN shooting range to shoot there IDPA match. I though in ways this was the most challenging stage because of randomness. The targets were numbered and called out randomly. So first you needed to find the correct target before shooting it. Also your supposed to use the walls for cover.

IDPA match shooting my 9 mm Glock 17 at the Hibbing Minnesota range 2012 stage 2

I took my gen 3 glock 17 to the Hibbing, MN shooting range to shoot there IDPA match. This stage was fun mainly because of getting to shoot out of a car. So the setup is you have multiple attackers, and you need to chose how to engage them. There are 2 attackers on the drivers side one close one far and then 2 on the passenger side. My choice was to take out the closest threat first the target closest to the driver side door. Followed by the target behind that target then  transitioning to the passenger side. Next I needed to exit the vehicle using it for cover to engage the remaining targets.

IDPA match shooting my 9 mm Glock 17 at the Hibbing Minnesota range 2012 stage 1

I took my gen 3 glock 17 to the Hibbing, MN shooting range to shoot there IDPA match. In this stage we were putting 3 rounds on moving silhouette targets and it was a very fun stage. The first target consisted of a hostage/hostage taker target with the hostage taker and the hostage targets both moving. The next was a target through a tire and then came small metal targets. Which when shot triggered silhouette targets to turn and drop and turn again. You only had seconds to put 3 rounds on target before the target “dissapeared”.

Sheep chase cat into my house

I was loading my truck with the front door propped open and all the sudden. My cat came running in the house with the sheep following him. Luckily I was standing there otherwise they probably would have kept coming right into the house. This happened one other time when my mother let the cat in and left the door open a bit to long and the sheep came in right past her, she yelled to me and I had to come and shoo them back out.

Me and my dog check on the deer the day after I free it from the fence panel

Today I went with my dog to see if the deer was still in the woods and or still alive. After locating the deer from a distance and watching it for 5-10 minutes I thought it was dead. So we moved closer to make sure and got a bit of a surprise. It seems the the deer is possibly friends with my dog, the deer was hanging in my dogs yard. So its very possible they met before I found her and knowing my dog she probably even tried to help her.

This video covers the day after freeing the trapped deer and the next day so basically it was freed on Friday and the end of this video ends on Sunday. Part one of this story can be seen here. It shows how I free the deer that was hanging from a hog panel by its back leg.

My firearms videos disappearing from Youtube

Some of you may have noticed that a bunch of videos have disappeared from my Youtube channel. This is due to the new Youtube firearms policy, because of this new policy I am self censoring my channel.

Some of these video have been a part of my Youtube channel from the beginning. In fact the very first video I ever posted was shooting a black powder revolver that I intended to sell. It is now removed from the channel. I  have found other venues to host firearms related content. I will link to here so subscribe to this website if that interests you. This will probably be the last I talk about firearms on Youtube unless Youtube decides to backtracks these policy changes.

The main reason I made this decision over trying trying to pick and chose which videos may or may not be ok. Was that I didn’t have that many, I think it was under 40 videos. To go through each one to check and see if it was in compliance or not, when the rules to be in compliance are not black and white . Would have been far to time consuming / soul destroying. I would rather just move that part of my content elsewhere where it will just be appreciated for what it is.

It is also part of the reason I finally got my butt in gear to create this website. I have owned the domains and the hosting for years but never got around to doing anything with them. Firearms have been and will always be a big part of my life. There generally not a large part of my videos mainly just because I have so many video interests that firearms are low on the list of things I want to record video on.

I started hunting at around age 11 with my father and a trusty daisy bb gun. Have been a federal firearms dealer for many years and I went to college to become a gunsmith. I have now been a gunsmith for many years have sold guns to consumers and have also worked on customers guns.
