  2. This Day in History: An unexpected WWII heroine : During this week in 1907, an American heroine is born. Why, exactly, did Mary Babnik Brown become a hero? The details are uncertain, but one basic fact is undisputed: Mary got a haircut—and it helped our country during World War II. Was Mary’s hair used to create crosshairs for Norden bombsights? Or was it simply used for meteorological instruments? Mary was living in Pueblo, Colorado, during the opening months of World War II. One day, she saw an advertisement in a local newspaper: The government needed hair—but not just any hair. It needed hair that was at least “22” long, blonde, and has never been treated with chemicals or hot irons.” Mary’s hair satisfied all these criteria. She’d been carefully caring for her knee-length hair for decades, washing it with pure soap a few times a week. In the end, she donated 34 inches of hair. Reportedly, the loss of her hair was so devastating that she mourned its loss for two months. Yet she felt that she’d done her duty, and she refused to accept the War Savings Stamps that the government offered her.

  3. If you need a wrist wrap in order to shoot safely, then so be it. If you win with the wrist wrap, you would have probably won if your wrist had been OK in the first place. I don't see that as an issue. Same with shoes. I've never been beat by a pair of shoes yet. Personal accommodations in order to supply a person a NEEDED means to participate is generally a good thing. However, IMO the level of accommodations will/should be considered when and where it is provided. In some cases it matters more than others. Something might matter at a Sanctioned match but not matter at a local monthly match. Example. Joe has just driven across the country to shoot the State match. He got out of the car and stepped in a hole and hurt his leg so badly that he can barely walk. I'm the MD for the State match. Joe comes to me and ask if he can shoot the match without the need to move through the stages where possible. I say "Sure thing Joe, but you will not be allowed to place unless you shoot the same match as everyone else does". If Joe agrees, then off we go, if not, then Joe will be watching the match. If it were our small monthly match it just wouldn't matter. Snakebite

  4. Great message from Sheriff Clarke June 30, 2020 · "It's not the police who need to be retrained, it's the public. We have grown into a mouthy, mobile phone wielding, vulgar, uncivil society with no personal responsibility and the attitude of 'it's the other person's fault, you owe me'. A society where children grow up with no boundaries or knowledge or concern for civil society and personal responsibility. When an officer says "Put your hands up," then put your hands up! Don't reach for something in your pocket, your lap, your seat. There's plenty of reason for a police officer to feel threatened, there have been multiple assaults and ambushes on police officers lately. Comply with requests from the officer, have your day in court. Don't mouth off, or fight, or refuse to comply... that escalates the situation. Police officers are our sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters. They're black, white, brown, all colors, all ethnicities, all faiths, male and female, they are us. They see the worst side of humanity... the raped children, the bloody mangled bodies of traffic victims, the bruised and battered victims of domestic violence, homicide victims, body parts... day after day. They work holidays while we have festive meals with our families. They miss school events with their kids, birthdays, anniversaries, all those special occasions that we take for granted. They work in all types of weather, under dangerous conditions, for relatively low pay. They have extensive training, but they are human. When there are numerous attacks on them, they become hyper vigilant for a reason, they have become targets. When a police officer encounters any person... any person, whether at a traffic stop, a street confrontation, an arrest, whatever... that situation has the potential to become life threatening. You, Mr & Mrs/Miss Civilian, also have the responsibility of keeping the situation from getting out of control. Many law enforcement officers are Veterans. They've been in service to this nation most of their lives, whether on the battlefield or protecting us here at home. They are the only thing that stands between us and anarchy in the streets. If you want to protect your child, teach them respect." ~ Sheriff David Clarke

  5. Saul goes to Temple every Sabbath and says a little prayer, “Please God, let me win the Lottery.” One Saturday as Saul was leaving the Temple, he heard a voice. Saul . . . Saul! Saul looked around and decided the voice could only have one source. Yes God? Buy a ticket!

  7. And the only reason these people get along with their happy little lives is that they Do Not Know About It. Sad but true, life imitates art. Here's my take after all I have seen; The virus is real but it's a dud. Didn't do what it was supposed to do and nothing can change the fact that it has a 99.9% survival rate. Of course, even the gubbermint's own figures are misleading because EVERY death they could count is covid. Which is why they are using that cockamamie test. They needed a "scare" and those numbers which our nice MSM parrots and amps up every day. One word; FLORIDA If their hype was true, everyone there would be dead. They never followed what many states did with rules, mandates and such. Same would go for places like AZ. Here, it's pretty much normal. So yeah. By this point it should be obvious this is mostly made up for the puropse of controlling the population. But it isn't working, is it? All this nonsense can't be done soon enough for me.

  8. They’ve removed the publication in question. They now are trying to walk back what was said/proposed and denying that it meant what it clearly was intended to mean by those who put it out in the first place!! If the leadership was serious about this, they would dismiss those who are responsible for that bit of racism and disband this “International Social Justice Commission”!!! This most recent statement merely emphasizes the fact that they screwed up and now they are trying to cover their @$$es!!

  10. OK, not quite as patriotic, but about 15 years ago I was a guy who wore my hair very long. An organization called Locks For Love sought donations of hair that was at least 12" long and that had never been dyed or treated with chemicals, for use in making wigs for (mostly female) chemotherapy patients who had lost their hair. My hair qualified, and was a renewable resource, so as a tribute to a friend who had lost her hair in those circumstances, I decided to let it grow and grow and grow until the hair on the front half of my head was at least 12" long, and the hair in the back was much, much longer. At first it made a man-bun, but pretty soon it made a great ponytail. After about 18 months, I then suffered a major set of injuries in a disastrous fall down a flight of stairs, for which I was going to have a significant part of my upper body shaved before major surgery. Having very long hair and not being able to take a shower for at least a month after the surgery was not going to work out well. I then discovered another organization called St. Baldrick's that would shave your head clean at a fundraising event to honor children who had lost their hair in chemotherapy. So we made it a double fundraising celebration a few days before my scheduled surgery: first, the folks at a St. Baldrick's fundraising event cut off all of my hair and prepared it for sending to Locks For Love according to that organization's instructions, and then the St. Baldrick's barber shaved my head clean. The whole thing was great fun for a couple of good causes, except for my accident and surgery and very difficult and prolonged recovery and physical rehab therapy.

  11. They can walk it back. They can walk it back without ever seeing another dime of my money. I have been generous with them over the years. They got all they will ever get from me. I am sure BLM will keep them afloat.

  12. Just the fact that SA has that program argues that they agree with the professional racists and hate-mongers that the United States is a racist country and that it's white people who are the problem. Of course SA is going to try to spin it some other way.

  15. My pads were never connected to my pants. They were put inside the special pockets on the compression shorts underneath. Some people leave off certain pads for speed/comfort. As far as the see through pants go, I hadn't noticed. I can tell you for certain the cheerleaders do not wear see through pants. No matter how many times you pause and rewind the tv.

  17. Salty-dog, helping her Mama nap. I sat on the floor with her at the vet's. The brain tumor triggered seizures and took her eyesight: the vet told us she'd let us know when it was time, and that was it. She took her last breath with my hand on her -- she was on a cushioned dog bed -- she looked at me in her last moment, and in her dark eyes I saw thanks. I'm sorry. I cried then and it's happening now.

  19. Well heck Taos, if you'd have told us the issue in the first place... those little 160gr pills don't have enough energy to get thru the barrel. If you had fired a full load 250gr behind them, that would have pushed them right out! ...and if anyone thinks I'm serious, I'd hate to know what else you think.

  20. Well today was the clubs first Single Action shoot for the Woodstock Regulators and what fun it was! It was an absolute mud fest but no one cared a hoot It will definitely be better when the road base is spread over the Single Action Range as soon as when the contractor can get a dry period in, we have had rain for weeks. On Thursday a posse from Nowra Club consisting of Squints, Old Gringo and Chato who are the Southern Regulators travelled down to the club to have a look at our Single Action Range after they invited us to shoot with them two weeks ago and they were suitably impressed with the new range it was terrific showing them around and then having morning tea and shooting the breeze for nearly 3 hours. They were planning on coming today with a truckload of excess gear that they have that they can lend to the us, but the overnight rain was just too much for them to go and collect it and drive down. Two lots of parents will have a lot of washing today as we had three kids wallowing and having a ball in the mud whilst their parents were shooting. Here’s a photo from today and you can see what we’re standing in !!! There were supposed to be a lot more folks, but we've had over 7 inches of rain dumped on us in 36 hours!

  22. A RoHs and REACH Primer – Understanding CE Product Requirements for the European Union So you want to sell your products in the European Union? You’ve got everything set up and ready to go and then you come across a requirement you have not heard before – something about a “CE” mark on your product. You may ask yourself, what does this even mean? Well, let’s talk about that in a bit more detail. Regulatory Requirements for the European Market The CE mark stands for Conformite Europeenne and it is a requirement for products to get into the European market. Much like other regulatory requirements, we may be more familiar with such as Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) or Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the CE mark is a regulation which businesses must follow to conform to the laws of the market. The CE mark is a product’s passport into the European Union (EU) marketplace. It means that the product meets certain legal requirements for safe use in the EU. Seeing the CE mark on a product indicates that the manufacturer of that product asserts that the product is compliant to the applicable harmonized legislation, directives, and regulations. What are the Identified Hazardous Substances in Europe? Some of the most well-known regulations and legislations required to affix the CE mark are RoHS and REACH. RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances and came into force in July 2006 and it covers electronic and electrical equipment (EEE) put onto the EU market. Currently, the directive covers 10 different substances. These 10 substances must not appear above specific concentrations of inhomogeneous items placed onto the EU market. REACH stands for Restriction, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals. REACH came into force in June 2007 and attempts to regulate chemicals known to cause cancer and reproductive harm to humans or adversely affect the environment.

  25. Make sure when you are doing the test that you point the muzzle up at a steep angle so the round slides fully to the rear. Lots look OK when the rifle is level.

  26. I wonder how many millions of normal, caring people without a racist bone in their body are being driven toward racism by the constant barrage of bull$#!+ and the continuous accusations and portrayals of being racist??
