  1. Ok this topic should of never been allowed because this is the Prospector's Lounge, this topic has nothing to do with prospecting...but we have allowed other "off topic" topics to be posted in this section just to give everyone something to comment on.....not to fight about, not for name calling, not for getting political, etc., etc. But as always most can't get along together, many here have to hit below the belt to get a reaction from their "adversary", but the time has come to move along to other discussions, hopefully most has developed "herd immunity" for their animosities and bicker

  3. Hello everyone, i hope you're all doing well. The boys and i headed out again Saturday to go chase some gold and relics with my friend Larry. He didn't make it out last year with us at all due to his age and the Covid stuff so this was his first time out in over a year. He ended up getting a new Equinox 600 so we wanted to train him on it. Well Cameron my oldest son was running his GP Extreme chasing gold and his first target of the day was this pistol. Cant get any manufacturer info or any other markings off of it yet, but i think it is a Hopkins and Allen 32 caliber. Still looking into it. P

  6. I always wondered why guys that believe the virus was deliberate are also the ones who won't do anything to protect themselves from it. Seems like if I really believed the virus was an intentional attack on our country then I would be doing my darndest to fight it. Some folks just don't have the stomach for a fight though. Lots of people will stay in bed frozen with fear while an intruder steals their stuff. So it is predictable that some would refuse to fight a scary virus. Some folks are afraid of slimy monsters. Some are afraid of hairy monsters. Others are afraid of viruse

  11. Looks like a 32 rimfire. H&A Dictator. There were a bunch of different names on very similar pistols. It would be almost impossible to tell exactly what name it was marketed under. H&A was the progenitor of all of them though. At least that is what my gun expert buddy says. He is sitting here looking at the pictures. That's his opinion on it.

  13. Thanks Clay. I did not look at the link you put in earlier. I knew there had to be a better map than the forest service had posted. That Master Title Plat has good detail. Maybe 10 years ago, I created my own map based off the rather crude map from link I posted. That was all I could find at the time. It was quite the exercise. I used USGS maps to plot the boundaries. Of course the map I was putting together covered the intersection of four of those maps. At least all the datum on the maps were the same. Once I actually got to Lynx creek, The area I decided to go to was well withi

  15. If you look at the official map for lynx creek, there are some areas along the creek that are not part of the withdrawal area for whatever reason. Prescott National Forest - Recreation (usda.gov) Without having been to any of Clay's sites he mentioned, these two yellow areas look like either private property or patented claims. I checked Lynx creek for open areas years ago, and found nothing. I checked for miles to the South. There was some open ground perhaps a mile to the West on some pretty steep hills. Who knows what is open there now. There is an AMRA claim that borders

  18. Fact is I didn't say the Covid vaccine, did I. But thank you for your expected low brow response. Your bullying, name calling, and constant need to get the last word in has ruined this forum. I knew when you were allowed back on here that it would go to hell and it has. You've run off many members with this crap and inability to have a real discussion. You actually have posted zero "facts", anybody that just believes what you have to say is foolish. Please show me an actual ingredient list from a manufacturer and the msds sheets that should go along with it. Here is a list fro

  21. It is quartz on chalcedony. What the tan mineral is on it im not sure. I'm going to call the tan mineral barite. If I am wrong folks will come out of the woodwork to correct me. I am probably wrong. The crystals don't look right for barite. It does look like a soluble mineral that precipitated on the quartz after the formation of the silica. Whatever it is it is a neat specimen.

  23. How about studying the science? It's disappointing to see this discussion continue to revolve around politics. I doubt political preferences could be demonstrated to have any relationship with virus origination and transmission. The earliest known evidence of SARS-COV2 was found in samples from March 12, 2019 in Barcelona Spain. The earliest known evidence in China was November 17, 2019 just about the same time as the earliest known evidence in Italy. I'm sure those dates will be refined over time, research is ongoing, but this is what scientific investigation has revealed at this point.

  25. Did you get the J&J vaccine? I just got back from getting my second shot of Moderna and I feel fine. Time will tell, but the odds are in my favor. I posted the article above to point out that there are real instances of reinfection even after vaccination. The vaccines are only 90-95% effective, so roughly 5% could be at risk. 90% is far better than zero. It's not all about prevention of infection. Studies have also shown the vaccine greatly reduces the severity of symptoms which almost eliminates hospitalizations.

  26. It has nothing to do with being 'woke'. Whatever that's supposed to mean.... ??? It has everything to do with your continued use of a term employed to cause more division and is blatantly false. Covid-19 is a corona virus, not influenza. You should know that. The rest of it is a derogatory term and I take personal offense. My wife and kids fall into that group and half of the people I consider family as well. If you were bold enough to utter that garbage in my presence, I would be standing in your face. Do we understand each other now? Luke

  32. Irons are often very sculpted. If it is iron it is definitely a suspect meteorite. If it is mineral it is not. It will take a file and five seconds to determine whether this specimen is mineral or iron.

  40. Heck no Chris! That second one is the most important. Even if it makes you shiver and shake for a couple of hours it will protect you. And it will also help protect those around you. Even if you get sick down the road you will fare better. And the chances you will be contagious is much less. After that second shot the chances of covid seriously affecting your life go way down. The odds are 1:1M in your favor if you get the shot. You have about a 25% chance of getting coronavirus without it. Any way you slice it getting vaccinated is the logical choice. I'll be standing i

  42. Can you tell if the firing pin is flat or round? That may indicate whether or not it is rimfire. He says some were .32 and some were .36 or .38. The .32 rimfire were probably the oldest. Mid to late 1800's. I have a spot that turns up lots of .32 rim cases. Old rascals. No head stamp of any kind. Smooth as a baby's butt on the heads except for a rectangular strike on the rim. I guess that was a pretty popular round back when. I have seen several old rifles and pistols chambered for it.

  45. Have you noticed that bob can never be wrong? It also seems that he has a habit of trying to steer any thread I start off topic. I suspect he will bring sausage into this conversation next. Getting back to tires, I think many hiker types take the blacktop to a trailhead and park in the lot, then follow the designated trails. It ain't like that in remote areas of Death Valley. Just pulling off the blacktop on the side of the road or into an unimproved parking area can result is cut sidewalls or sharp rocks wedging themselves into the tread of tires. I'd like to hear about how these unf

  46. I heard a report on the radio from a scientist that studies transmission. He said there is good evidence that most people do not transmit the virus. Only certain individuals. He points to the fact that many households will have one person infected but no one else in the household gets it. It is very common for this to happen. While other people infect everyone they get close to. They said most people do not transmit the virus to anyone. But people who do transmit it will infect am average of 28 people. He indicated that "super spreaders" were not so much events but individuals.

  48. Nothing has changed there Electrician. That land (nearly 10,000 acres) was patented to the State in 1981 as an indemnity selection. The patent was based on land that was granted to the State of Arizona in 1914 but the State didn't select the land until 1981. You can see the patent HERE. Next time you think the sky is falling or someone is stealing land check out the Arizona Land Status map. I got all the details and links to that patent in a matter of seconds using the map.
