[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0Njg2Nzg1X0UzOURDRDdG] Hunting Pellets for an Air Rifle Hunting Pellets are the only kind of ammunition you should attempt to utilize in an air rifle for hunting purposes. The small amount of velocity generated ( we'll end up using acceleration but wait for it) and the small mass of the bb will only produce a small force. That's Newton's Second Law of Motion that your science teachers kept going on and on about in school. Had you listened, you might have understood it, and become a good hunter/homesteader. See, they actually do teach some things in school that are important. A hunting pellet will have differing shapes and mass and will produce a different ballistic pattern, but of course more mass means the pellet will need more pressure generated (pumping more) in order to create a smooth shot to the end target. Lewis and Clark actually used the first created air rifle, so don't discount something as a toy that others are actually hunting with. Because the pellets are very inexpensive for even the best pellets, they're a wise way to save money to take small game.

This is the historic means of successfully acquiring meat for the table. The least expensive have the least accurate ballistics and cost $0.016 a pellet. Super cheap and come in tins of 500 The most expensive have superior ballistics and cost $0.02 a pellet, not much difference and come in a box of 1250. I would transfer the pellets into an old tin Altoid can or similar if purchasing the more expensive ones. You sure wouldn't want them to spill on the ground, and then end up introducing the abrasive dirt into the barrel. There are many kinds of scopes from $30 on up, and you can end up doubling the price of the rifle based upon this. Remember, this is truly a short range weapon. Don't get carried away. [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
