    @woodchip rookie how long did it take for you to go through the process to get your suppressor? I've got a 700 tactical that I've been thinking about going suppressed with.

    My process was different than most people because I built mine. Mine is registered on an ATF Form 1, "application to manufacture a firearm". To buy one from a dealer you will be buying one on a Form 4. You pay for the suppressor, submit all the paperwork then wait on the gubmit. Check out snipershide.com and waddle thru the suppressor forum. I think theres a thread in there called "form 4 wait times".

    Assorted alphabet agencies holding pen for da sheeple.must admit I'm on it but keep a low profile. The marketplace feature is pretty good. We don't really have a good Craigslist here.

    We have uncomplicated naming rules in Australia, eg. black snake, brown snake, powerful owl, wedgetail eagle, ringtail possum, drop bear etc. Most likely you came across a red gum, which as you say, has nice red heartwood and after the blue gum is the most commonly planted eucalypt in the US I believe. It is often used here for pretty furniture and is believed by many to be the best firewood available in Oz ... it isn't, but it is still pretty good with BTU's between black locust and osage when grown in Australia. I'm aware that the blue gums that were planted in the US produced poorer quality and less dense timber/lumber than it does in its native environment, not sure if the red gum experience was the same or not.

    We have at least 4 different red heart/gum varieties around here. All but that one tree have fairly thick bark..1-1.5" and they crack out like crazy when drying...useless for even small turning projects. We call the blue gum ''white' eucalyptus as the wood is, well, white. Some trees have some pinkish areas in the larger trunk hearts. All the whites crack badly when drying, are very tough to cut, even when green. Let them dry a few years and they get even harder to cut. I use chisel on green wood and semi-chiz on dry to semi dry wood. There is one outfit near here that Mills the white into 8x8s or larger for garden walls, etc.
    The rest either goes to firewood or chipped for some of the bio-fuel plants East of here.

    All the reds cut like butter.

    Few years ago I was heading over to my moms house, I was running early, and saw a big sign up in front of the Ford/New Holland dealer. OPEN HOUSE BREAKFAST. I pulled in , great breakfast. Farm fresh eggs, bacon, and sausage. Pancakes, biscuits and gravy. They had door prizes with a coffee can in front, you dropped your door tag in the can of the item you liked. You could buy more tickets, but I just dropped the one free one in the can that only had one other ticket in it. Won a real nice FORD wind breaker.

    But worth the effort. Pine would have just been pushed into the woods to rot.

    Yes, it did the same thing, only there was not as much sap coming out.

    Perhaps, but it is WAY BETTER than white pine in the stove.

    Hedge/Osage Orange will do that also. It is sticky like Elmer's glue.

    We don't have much hedge around here. Iv never cut any. Mulberry and hedge are so closely related it's not surprising they do the same thing when cut.
