    Not much better on the East side.
    Guy at work bought a new HK in 9mm and a box of "defensive" ammunition. Over $60 for the boolits so that's north of a dollar a shot...for 9mm.:bananadead:

    Better make every shot count. Too expensive to miss your target

    I have been trying to find a 17 HMR varmint rifle for the Coyote's but everything is back-ordered both rifles and ammo. My 30-06 is too much for the neighborhood and my 22 LR is not enough to drop them.

    I like the 17 HMR but I’m a 22 mag guy. Ballistics they are similar to each other but I’ve been shooting the 22 mag for 40+ years both revolver and rifle and I just really like that caliber. Of course I can’t find 22 mag ammo either. And my favorite deer rifle is a 30-06 (or a 270) , I’m just old school.

    Ok, I give up. I started an 80+ year old thread on my birthday last August. To date it has 19 posts, most from myself. I guess I'll join you youngsters here if you don't mind?
    I got my first Covid shot last week. No big deal, nothing happened, no sore arm, nothing. I have a full calendar for the week of my second shot, but now I hear I'll likely feel symptoms from that second shot. Gonna have to reschedule my other appointments, priority goes to playing the sicko after the shot! I don't remember having so damn many appointments while I was a working stiff!

    Welcome to the porch, Alan! We are 60+ here...and even a few who are still a bit shy of 60. Great group of folks.

    And, good morning everyone!! We are scheduled for our first vaccine shot this coming Saturday - assuming supply holds.

    Be safe!

    The east coast must have a big advantage over us out here in the hinder lands in getting vaccine distribution. I cannot get scheduled for the vaccine until late March to the end of April at the earliest and I am 66 (67 in two months). OH well, more in house arrest ahead for me - LOL.

    Welcome Alan, this is a good group.

    Now back to pleasantries - Good Morning Everyone - have a great day

    Welcome Alan!
    I think Ken got it right at 60+, lets the youngsters join in at 60 and still keeps the old timers around in the same thread, it's been a good and interesting thread ever since I first started posting, as Mark stated, great group of folks on here with varied knowledge and interests.

    No one really knows how the vaccine is being allocated. It’s all a big mystery.

    I still don’t buy med folks going first. But if you make the rules I sure you get preference.

    Then again, why are we shipping vaccine overseas before all here ate vaccinated?

    Good Morning folks.:hattip:

    Welcome to the porch Alan. I think we have a couple of 80 year old youngsters stopping in from time to time. No age restrictions here. Enjoy the posts.

    Trying to get my shot down here in Florida. Most places you have to show proof of residency (can't blame them for taking care of their own) but my neighbor who is down here 5 months out of the year got his through the county. Everytime I've gone on the site it's been booked:rolleyes:. I'll just social distance, and wait till I get home. Deb can't get hers until her doctor does more research on effects with allergies. He told her to wait until we are home as well.

    We both know about keeping the old timers around Carl...since we are out of the 60 age range. :laugh: and to think Jim didn't think there would be but a few of us:rolleyes:.

    Was at the beach here yesterday and a lot of folks surf casting for dinner:thumbsup:.

    One of my nieces is a nurse and has allergies - she just got her first one last week. Her physician determined that the type of vaccine should have no effect with her allergies. They are still fighting a shortage of vaccines here, like everywhere. It's just going to take time for the supply to catch up.

    Thanks for the welcome, you young whippersnappers!
    I see lots of you are veterans, have you checked with the VA for your Covid vaccines? Check in with your primary care Dr to get on the list. I live only a couple miles from the Livermore VA Clinic, and was called spur of the moment to fill a cancelled appointment slot. They had 5 stations going, no waiting. I was home again within the hour.

    I'm on my way to drop my daughter off to get her shot. My DIL has already got hers. She is a RN, but my daughter is a animal nurse. Interesting that my 31 year old daughter can get it while I have to wait. Can't have them doggies & kitties catch the virus.

    About 24 minutes South on A1A Art. The area here is South Beach. We will probably get up to the inlet in our travels.
