  3. The OP said "Lets Talk Single Action" so by golly I went to look I have about 15 revolvers that I call single actions. Not counting cap guns and old slab sides. However, they are obviously not what most of the people on here call single actions. Mine are mostly Rugers lots of different flavors, some have transfer bars some do not. They all shoot well and they all hit were you point them. I don't seem to worry much about the investment value because I basically have no plans to sell. I would however be surprised to learn that their value hasn't keep pace with the economy despite the fact

  5. Yes she has. A Browning over and under about 50 years ago the gun has seen a lot of use and is still one of my go to's. A few years later a Ruger M-77 in 25-06 it is going Antelope hunting with us this year. As the years passed and my needs became more specialized she approves purchases rather than make them. She 's one of a kind and I hope we get another 52 years.

  6. My Mother and Father had an incident about 40 years ago. "Lady" barged in front of my Mother and Dad in a line-up waiting their turn at the cash. "Lady" pushes her way in front of them with the words, " I'm in a hurry!" My Father, a usually patient and courteous man, in his 70's says "Yes, but so are we" to which "Lady" tells him to "F.O. Old Man!" Now, my Mother was about 5'2", 1/8 Algonquin and 7/8 Fightin' Irish. Mother reached up and back-handed the "Lady" and knocked her on the butt.

  11. We never really buy each other guns. What normally happens is that we'll be in a gun shop, gun show, at a match, or looking on the internet one of us will see a gun they want. At that point the conversation goes like this: One: "If you want it get it." The Other: "It's a lot of money and we have x, y or z expenses coming up" One: "You have a ( insert -birthday, anniversary, or Christmas etc.) coming up we'll just figure that's your present." The Other: "I don't know..." One: "Get it! You know you want." At that point it's ka-ching and the money's ou

  12. Where to begin? I was born in Pittsburgh, my Dad was Korean War veteran and Westinghouse technician, Mom was a nurse. I've worked since I was 11 years old delivering the Pittsburgh Press. In my teens I worked at McDonalds and, put roof's on with my dad. We went to church every Sunday. We were not rich, but we were not poor. I was lucky to get C's in high school, I stared out the window waiting for the bell to ring. Looking back I wish I had paid more attention. In my senior year I joined the Army Reserve as an E-1. I went to basic training 6 days after I graduated high school, I turned 18 at F

  15. My wife and I own an old house (circa 1890’s) that was moved to a new foundation around 1918 to get it out of a flood plain of the Colorado river. Photos of the move are in the Museum of Western Colorado archives. The move was accomplished using wagons and horses similar to your image. The current state of the house means it is uninhabitable but the basic structure and the interior of plaster and lathe is still there. Regards Gateway Kid

  16. John don't need no stinkin' bots. But I have a theory as to how he does it. He has one of those "Drinking Bird" toys. Instead of a cup of water for it to dip its beak into, he has a thimble of water sitting on the F5 key on his keyboard. Every time it dips its beak into the thimble it hits it hard enough to refresh his browser. Am I close, John? Maybe I should have kept quiet. Now everyone is going to be hoarding the Drinking Birds.

  18. The 1st Battalion of the 75th Artillery (8" How) participated in a Corps, 1 round, Time on Target a Grafenwoher, in the mid 60s. We had 4.2 mortars thru 280 guns firing TOT. For those whose legs are other than red, a TOT mission attempts to place all rounds fired on a given target with their detonation simultaneous. This is a whole lot of guns. The time spread from 1st round to last was 6 seconds. Notice I spelled Corps correctly.

  19. After the 2004 Indonesian Tsunami, when the US sent a carrier and supporting vessels to render aid one of the guys at church was grousing about it, "What are we going to do, invade?" I pointed out to him the assets it brought, SAR, electric power, desalination capabilities to supply fresh water, medical facilities, food, and a whole bunch of manpower. He shut up after that.

  23. His WWII anti-Japanese-American cartoons have hardly been a secret. I saw some of them many years ago. I remember one where very slant-eyed buck-toothed Japanese-Americans were lining up at a telephone eager to call in information to Japan. Not very appealing, to say the least. And not just now; there were many people back then who objected to these depictions. It was the times, and his work 'atoned' for it many times over, if that's the word. After all, it was Franklin Roosevelt who put them in the camps...but then the cancellation project is underway with him, too.

  24. The disappearing gun would have the ability to traverse, probably 30-45 degrees to each side depending on the fortification and what it was intended to cover. If one goes on Google Earth you can see the firing pits, it is just to the north of all the barracks with the red/orange roofs and the just southeast of that weird man made lake with the structure in the middle of it. Sadly at least one of the pits seems to be used as a junkyard for cars. The two pits were for 12" Model 1890 M1 breech loading mortars and there would have been four of them, two in each firing pit and would

  27. Well, this reminds me of a story. Upon arriving home yesterday evening, I was met at the door by my wife, sobbing her eyes out. Tearfully she explained, "It's the druggist. He insulted me terribly this morning on the phone." Immediately, being the caring husband I am, I got into my pickem-up truck and drove downtown to confront the druggist and demand an apology (or I was gonna open up a whole can of whoop-ass on him). Before I could say more than a few words, the druggist told me, "Now, just a minute, please listen to my side of it... This morning the alarm failed to

  29. Back in the day when I was on WesPac on the Kitty Hawk (World's largest anti-submarine platform), we had a problem with one of the screws, so did the whole cruise on three, with one trailing. Had to do a high speed run in the IO, no problem beating the 33.6 on three screws. Rumor back then was the Big 'E' was the fastest in the fleet, being the first nuke they didn't know quite how it would work and built it with eight boilers like the others. Newer nukes only had two, like the article said. One of the most impressive things I ever saw was during UnRep. We had a turbin
