    Nicely done, enjoyed them both. I’ve delayed radio coms long enough, it’s like you guys are chatting in a coffee shop.

    Great post. Throws good, wam-bam done. btw, the snap in these latest videos is not my fav. The ones I love the most have a larger ring/outer eye diameter. Figure 8 to tie them on is nicer than bowline IMO. Tight to snap, less bulky and still "untieable." I gotta talk about this in a vid. When I was a Arborfest doing a rigging demo with Samurai Joe, Bonner whined about the snap rigging and made us switch to the politically correct arborist tripe that everything must have a bowline and a marl. Pisses me off to this day. Same kind of bs as the one-hand-ban wimps. part 2 <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/mVC7QLKT6Xo" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Basically, most of the gun companies were in tough shape in the 2000's. Winchester had basically been struggling since the 60's, being bought and sold several times. Old machinery, labor difficulties, expensive designs, lots of debt.....sound familiar? So the big companies came in and tried to streamline things. Modernize and such. Big companies specializing in rescuing "distressed" businesses. They just got it wrong. Bits and pieces were being sold off since the beginning of the "freedom Group". As far as how does the financial world work in regards to Cerberus buying and selling these kinds of companies? I dont have the slightest idea. I still dont understand buying bad Mortgages. I can tell you that Remington and Marlin were pretty decent firearms....still are. But the boys would not buy them once the bean counters had their way.

    I'm wondering how you know this stuff. How did Cerberus make any money from buying these companies if they went insolvent?

    Remington is owned by the "freedom Group".....owned by Cerberus Capital. Cerberus bought a bunch of companies. Marlin, Bushmaster Dakota, and others. Operations were "modernized" and workers fired. Quality control went to absolute shit and several great products were either ruined or unavailable. People quit buying the products because of quality issues and unavailability. The equity was raided out of these companies. Its a nice thought that there was a huge backlash and the proletariat brought down these big companies.......but its bullshit. Corporate raiders brought down these companies.

    Remington just went outta business largely due to the Trump presidency, peeps not worried about gun prohibitions so they quit buying new guns. Unlike when Obama was elected, gun sales skyrocketed.

    You can make it "jump" more or less distance by changing the size of the opening of the face cut. A narrow face cut (say 15 degrees) will cause the piece to be at about 85 degrees when the hinge wood breaks, causing it to jump off of the stump and continue in the direction it is pointed, which is away. If you cut a much larger face cut (say 90 degrees), the chunk will be perpendicular to the spar when the hinge wood breaks and it won't "jump" away from the stump at all.

    “Hunting” is a relative term depending on what you’re hunting.
