Exclusive SL Air Gun For Sale: The Girandoni Rifle | Survival Life | Survival Life

A friend of mine sent me a link to a site awhile back that showed a man taking down a full grown hog using only a pellet gun. I thought: “this can’t be real…”

I started doing a little bit of research on my various options when it comes to finding an air gun for sale and, turns out, it is completely true if said pellet is traveling at 1250 feet per second (many .22 caliber rim fire rifles only reach around 1100-1200 fps). I decided to pick up one of these air rifles and give it a test.

Now, There are multiple calibers and velocities that these things come in but, I decided to go with the .22 caliber, for the ease of access to ammo and the higher knockdown compared to the .177 (at the sacrifice of a little velocity, which I think is a fair trade off).

With prices ranging from $80- $800, I did everything I could to make sure the I got the best price, without sacrificing quality. I spent countless hours negotiating with the manufacture to get the price down….

An air rifle like the Girandoni that I purchased is great for practice and small game. Once the gun has been sighted in you should be able to kill any small game no problem. Just bear in mind that most small game has a successful kill spot of around 1” so you will need to practice. If you have the right ammo and a well-placed shot you could potentially take down larger game like a hog. But please do so at your own risk. Even if you do have other rifles for larger game and self-defense, the inexpensive and highly available ammo will make this an extremely useful gun to have on hand in a survival situation. And a perfect training rifle for children.



Training & Education | The TOP 3 AVOIDABLE CLOSING DELAYS | Bryan Ellis Investing Letter

Your Deals Go FAST!

It probably doesn't feel like it, but nearly two-thirds of home sales contracts actually close without delay. That remaining third tends to dominate industry chatter and real estate professionals’ minds, however, creating tension and stress for months before the deal is actually done.

In reality, however, many of the main reasons that closings are delayed could be avoided in most scenarios. Here are the top three avoidable closing delays reported by real estate professionals today:

Delay 1) Inspection Issues Nearly one in 10 deals confront potential delays because home inspection problems surface after an offer has already been made and accepted. While this is certainly frustrating, in many cases it could be avoided (assuming the sellers’ have the financial wherewithal to address the issue) with a pre-market inspection that would help prevent surprises.

Delay 2) Problems with Financing For some real estate professionals, this issue is so big that they are not even willing to consider buyers that have not already been pre-qualified. If this describes you, then pre-qualification may be a good requirement for a sale. However, you will need to carefully evaluate how this requirement will affect whether or not your potential buyers even opt to view the home and decide if the sacrifice of volume is worth peace of mind and a predictable closing.

Delay 3) Title Complications Some of the savviest real estate investors we know actually do two title searches on every property before they buy specifically because title complications are so much more common than you would expect them to be! While you might think a title should be cut and dry – either clear or not! – in many cases, there may be one or more liens on the property that the owner may not even be aware of, and those liens may not always agree in order of precedence. Checking title every time will save you serious headaches later.

Majority of US Commuter Railroads Will Not Meet New Safety Requirements | The Guardian | US


Americas Hard Network. Unlike the virtual world this is the real world network. Roads and railways.

This answers some of the crazy questions I've heard and thought about concerning the railroad work in so many locations. -Chad

Fewer than a third of America’s commuter railroads will meet a looming deadline to install safety equipment that could prevent derailments, it has emerged during a hearing into the deaths of eight passengers outside Philadelphia last month.

The deadly Amtrak crash, apparently caused when the train hit a bend at more than twice the 50mph speed limit, has refocused attention on automated control technology designed to override drivers in such situations.

But amid wider wrangling in Washington over who should pay for updating creaking US transport infrastructure, Congress is instead now considering extending the December 2015 deadline for implementing the technology by up to five years.

During a hearing on Wednesday, the Federal Railroad Administration also refused to specify what sanctions it would take against operators who failed to comply with the existing deadline – reticence that angered some members of the Senate commerce committee.

“There is nothing new or novel about these accidents ... there is nothing new or novel about this [safety] technology. What we are seeing here is a failure of will.”
