  1. Possible Candidates... From The Army Times http://www.armytimes.com/article/20110828/NEWS/108280315/Pistols-shot-replacing-M9 Pistols with a shot at replacing the M9Aug. 28, 2011 - 08:56AM | Last Updated: Aug. 28, 2011 - 08:56AM Your next pistolOfficials are not allowed to discuss the selection process while requirements are being written. But Thomas did say the next pistol would be a commercial, off-the-shelf product. Narrowing the field is not especially hard. The soldier requirements division must first consider existing programs of record. If another government agency has a pistol p
  2. Overdue? The U.S. Army is moving forward to replace the Cold War-era M9 9mm pistol with a more powerful handgun that also meets the needs of the other services. As the lead agent for small arms, the Army will hold an industry day July 29 to talk to gun makers about the joint, Modular Handgun System or MHS. The MHS would replace the Army's inventory of more than 200,000 outdated M9 pistols and several thousand M11 9mm pistols with one that has greater accuracy, lethality, reliability and durability, according to Daryl Easlick, a project officer with the Army's Maneuver Center of Excellence at
  3. If you know where the picnic/eating area is/was it might be worth your time. Even the area surrounding where the outhouse was could be productive. I know I've spilled coins out of my pockets while pulling up my pants after using one. Seriously.
  4. Too cloudy in N NM, rain all weekend. Let me know how it was.
  5. Here is a short YouTube video of a test to debunk dowsing: Dawkins debunks dowsing https://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=_VAasVXtCOI I agree with the woman in the video that says the water should be underneath her. That, I think, would be a better test of how actual dowsing is done.
  6. Mike, I think you've been tapping into something for a while now, judging by your success with finding meteorites. I have yet to find an irrefutable meteorite.
  7. I've read the same things regarding idio-motor and possible field effects on rod movement. I can't say what might be true about field effects, but I can comment on the idio-motor (IM) speculation. When I'm dowsing I'm very conscious of keeping my hands tucked in tight to my chest and keeping them level as to not cause any possible IM movement in the rods. When the movement starts, I'm even more conscious of the placement of my hands; making sure I'm not influencing the movement. It's quite a thing when the rods swing and then cross. If anyone reading this has never tried it, please do. There'
  8. Hi Mike. That's amazing what you did with the coins. I never made the Ouija Board connection, and what you said; that dowsing might be like Ouija, may be true. It never occurred to me. I always thought of Ouija Boards as tapping into spirits and/or ghosts, and so I stayed away from them. Chicken me. Dowsing, at least to me, seems to tap into an earthly force, at least when it comes to looking for water. When I dowse, I don't feel like I'm calling a spirit or any kind of intelligent entities. I feel like its a natural something that's just out there, like magnetism, and the rods pick up on it.
  9. As Karl said, the weather was pretty bad. The winds were blowing the rods left and right. We had a calm spell and tried a quick version of the tests I had planned to run. The rods gave yes/no and right/front/left responses, but some of these responses I didn't trust because the wind would gust and move the rods. So the run of tests I had planned were squashed. I had survey flags, question/answer/result sheet(s), and I had my digging tools ready but the wind would have blown the papers and flags everywhere. I plan to try again at another site. BTW: I found a tent at GB. I folded it up and put s
  10. Until you find some Willow, you can use a coat hanger to make some L-Rods. check out the videos at: https://m.youtube.com/#/results?q=dowsing%20rods&sm=1
  11. Give it a try, Johnno. Try finding the water or sprinkler lines to and from your house or a neighbors house. Let us know how you fare and your thoughts about it all.
  12. Sounds interesting Ben. I've seen pictures of something similar, but never understood what the wrap on the end was for. Thanks for clearing that up for me. The only add on beside handles I've considered are blunt tips for the reach end. Don't want to poke anyone or anything with them.
  13. Rimmy, thanks for the link, but please don't change you're profile picture! I love that dog half in the hole! Bring him back!
  14. You hunting for Gold, right GJ? That is one thing I plan to try for. Your thoughts about dowsing have been on my mind. I've been planning a strategy that includes the tips I've gotten from Fred, RimShot, Ben, and you to use when I go to GB. I intend to keep a diary during trials to record the results and also so I don't forget anything. I want to share the experience here. I still haven't found my steel rods, so I bought another blank to make a new pair
  15. Gonna give it by best effort Fred. Working out my mantra's now and will refine them once I'm there. Saginaw
  16. Condolences Don. Losing a fellow hunter is somehow different from losing a regular acquaintance.
  17. I hope so Ben. Haven't found anything but waterlines with it so far, but I plan to use some of my own silent prayers to help things along. .
  18. That's part of the strategy this time out Fred. I'm planning to try yours and RimShot's suggested techniques just as described. I'm anxious to see how it all turns out. I've tried it locally, but no hits. GB is a proven strewn and gold field with targets waiting to be found, so I'm optimistic that dowsing will turn up something positive. I intend to update this topic with details and photos from the outings trials. BTW, thanks for the info you permitted Karl to share with me. Very much appreciated! Thanks so much. Saginaw
  19. Hi Ben. Those Russian meteorite hunters are quick to move. Honestly, I'm surprised nothing has turned up yet. You must be right about it still being winter there.
  20. New fireball seen in Murmansk, Russia... Mysterious object seen in the sky over Murmansk, Russia... MORE or go to: http://rt.com/news/meteorite-murmansk-explosion-space-588/ .
  21. Ben, what described is exactly what I did, except I used steel rods. They work great. I put them somewhere safe and now I can't find them. They'll turn. up. Just an aside, but an uncle of mine was a practicing Brujo in his little town in Mexico. He's gone now. Just an aside. Saginaw
