I believe in transfer pumps; Preferably electric.

Younguns these days and their gadgets. Hose don't need any electricity and if you leave about a foot attached to end you cut off & then thread the other cutoff endbit onto it it can be useful for interruptions.

Lots of the locals became reaquainted with the usefulness of the hose after that Hurricane Katrina.

My parents bought the gas from a neighbor's crushed SUV to run their generator, no transfer pump needed, and the parents are in their seventies.


My favorites are the elcheapo green ones that don't crimp or crush much, because their cheap plastic/rubber is too rigid.

Well the last 2 days have found me ordering 2 ar stripped lowers, 2 cases of mags that were such a good deal I just couldn't pass, and 2500 once fired polished brass which were also damn good price. I wonder if I made my way onto that special list Uncle Sam supposedly keeps, if I haven't I probably will after hitting the 2 gun shows in my area this weekend.

I have one mack daddy pump that runs off 120 if im in a hurry . Then I made a trans pump and mounted it on a old power washer cart with a deep cycle battery for covert operations . Gas is too hard to get but diesels are a breeze , well on big trucks anyway . We are at 4.90 a gallon now for regular so I drive the bike as much as possible , but wed- friday morning I have to drive the towahoe to haul the youngins , It may be time for a side car with baby seat capabilities .
Also seriously considering throwing in the towel on the Mobile Side of the company , I have not fired my f350 since January due to diesel prices and I have jacked my mobile rate to 100.00ph for local and I am not doing anything over 20miles out unless its a pick up or a quick fix . But 100.00 ph for mobile vrs 65.00ph for shop ..... most get of their ass and bring it too me .
Hell it cost 30-40 bucks to cut the damn grass now and almost 15 to fill the hog up .
Dont think there will be too much boating this year Im calling this like it is ...
BULL $HIT !
