  1. Have a stack of like new classifiers from 1/2" down to 100 mesh (gnat poop) in addition to a couple gold pans up for sale. I'll take $40 for everything. Call/text Gary @ 623-363-5333 if interested. I'm at 71st ave. & Union Hills in NW Glendale for P/U.
  2. Same guy that put the bear trap out there also put the egg out there. Suppose to be some sort of artsy fartsy BS about how all the illegals suffer when they illegally cross the border.
  3. Sporting clays and golf. I'll be back out detecting once summer is over. I can only feed a couple addictions at a time.
  4. Tom, judging by your photo, it appears to be a .50-70 benet primed cartridge.
  5. Steve... you know dam good and well what I mean when I say Commifornia. Nothing to do with your neck of the woods. As I stated previously, you guys need to divorce yourselves (secede) from the a$$holes that are causing the rest of the good people of California so much grief. Regarding your gun registration laws... If I move to CA from AZ with my guns in tow, by law I have to register them. You were grandfathered in. (a) Within 60 days of bringing a handgun, and commencing January 1, 2014, any firearm, into this state, a personal firearm importer shall do one of the following: (1) Forward by
  6. Over the years I've purchased guns from all over the country. Even from people who live in the communist states of CA, NY, and IL. Most all my purchases were internet based transactions from both private party individuals and dealers. If I bought from a dealer he shipped to my FFL. If I bought from a private party, he took the gun to his local FFL, and then that FFL shipped to my FFL. It's a very easy and painless process. As long as you're not a prohibited possessor in CA, and can legally own a firearm, you can pretty much buy a gun anywhere you darn well please as long as you go through an F
  7. Holy Crap! That is some awesome gold! Good job Tom & Tom!
  8. What's the difference between a "hobby miner" and a "small miner"?
  9. Another good rant courtesy of Bill... nice wordsmithing. Just for s**ts and giggles, I pulled up some geology maps of the Barstow area and I could only find a couple places that would be of interest to me in prospecting. Given the communist state of CA, those areas I would prospect are probably off limits anyway. Glad I'm in AZ... I've got enough areas to prospect right in my own back yard to last me for a lifetime.
  10. Looks like a nice little unit there Steve.
  11. You guys in NorCal really need to seriously think about seceding from all the assh***s in SoCal and the rest of the disease infested cities/counties... me thinks your lives would be a whole lot better.
  12. Uhhhh, that would be certified mail Skip. I get those little green cards from the IRS all the time. For some reason, they seem to think I owe them some money or something.
  13. I agree Steve... however there's nothing wrong with trying to cover all your bases. Sad to say, but you live in a beautiful, but politically f****d up communist state. Seems there's a certain group of people who think they need to have control over every aspect of your life. To hell with those assh***s I say! Beat them at their own stupid games, get yourself "mercury certified" and let them pay you to dredge! That's what I'm saying... A few of my dirt bike riding buddies did something similar here in AZ. They liked building and riding new dirt bike trials which in the eyes of the FS and BLM
  14. I caught a little s**t over on the TNET forum awhile back for suggesting to the dredgers that they become "EPA Certified Mercury Removal Specialists". One of my oil patch buddies I went to high school with (actually he dropped out) became a multi-millionaire almost overnight due to the EPA enviro-nuts and their "save the world" agendas. Since he and his Dad were already in the oil services business, they saw the writing on the wall with all the new EPA regulations and rules being imposed on the oil businesses. So back in the early 1990's when all the asbestos laden buildings, and underground t
  15. Just imagine those stamps running back in the old days. No electricity for electric motors. All steam powered. I'm sure the guy who sold ear plugs was a very rich man.
  16. That's kinda what I've been doing lately is prospecting on the fringes of known gold bearing areas hoping to find that wash or hill side that is still virgin. I haven't been at it all that long, so I've still got plenty to learn and still have to pay my dues so to speak. That's one of the major reasons I got a Rokon, just so I could get to those places where either nobody has been, or if they have, it's been a very long time. I'll find me something sooner or later. 90% of the fun I have is just getting out and exploring those "virgin" areas.
  17. Apparently "rich" by today's standards. I'm wondering where the Lynx creek, Cherry Creek, Oak Creek, Turkey Creek, Poland Creek, etc. etc. type placers are. Back in the day they were easily producing an OZ or better per ton. There's gotta be some rich ground still out there somewhere. I know the old timers were pretty thorough, but I don't think they got everything.
  18. At least you guys are making wages. Not a bad haul at all. I'm just wondering where in the hell did all the rich placers go. They still gotta be out there somewhere. Did the old timers really do that good of a job cleaning things up?
