  1. Gun shows have been a waste of my time for about the last five or six years. Nothing I can get there that I can't find somewhere cheaper and with less BS to put up with.
  2. I watched about ten minutes of the show when it first aired and never bothered again.
  3. True, but that was before my time so it slipped by me.
  4. Assuming that the "we" you mention are going to get up off their lazy and/or indifferent butts and vote instead of sitting around griping about it.....and that the votes aren't rigged.
  5. My dad named his Remington 08 "Old Meat In The Pot".
  6. The Brits perfected the square in Africa long before that. Someone (Kipling?) wrote a poem about breaking the English Square.
  7. Semper fi Corporal. I wish you both as great a marriage as my wife and I had for 51 years before God took her home.
  8. Over the years I've had way more problems with USPS than I have had with FedEx, UPS, Amazon, and a few others that ever did with all the rest combined.
  9. You got him, now YOU have to feed and clothe him, clean up his messes, and listen to him babble. Thanks.....sucker!
  10. It ISN'T quicker when they only have three or four self checkout stands working and twenty people waiting and only two registers open. And then there's the one item that doesn't make the idiot scanner work. You'll never sell me on them being better in any way.
  11. Yeah. I ran into a LtJG once who could shoot anything he could lift...and produce reeeeeealy small groups. He worked for the base engineers when I was at Marine Baracks Seal Beach. That was almost 50 years ago and we are still friends.
  12. Had a frat brother who had a skunk as a pet. Cute, but he stole anything shiny.....cuff links, pens, change, glasses, car keys, cigarette lighters, frat pins, tableware, class rings, you name it. Most of it turned up under a cast iron footed bath tub on the third floor or behind the piano in the first floor living room. Some it was never found.
  13. Navy doesn't do well with guns that have a smaller than 3" bore....and a crew of three or more.
  14. Alpo old son, you gotta stop smoking that stuff before you do yourself some real damage.
  15. They don't get it. They don't understand, don't care, and won't discuss it. I had a manager in fits one day when he told me could check myself out. I told him he could open another line and I wouldn't have to. He started giving me hard time and I told him if I had wanted to do that I would have applied for a job, but he couldn't afford me. He asked what I thought I was worth. I told him that when I retired I was making right at $12,000.00 a month. He told me that was ridiculous. I told him he and his store were ridiculous. He told me I could always shop somewhere else and I said I would do that from now on and started to walk away from about $350.00 worth of merchandise in my cart. He asked me if I was going to put it all back where I got it. "Mister, I don't work here and you just essentially threw me out of your store." Then I showed him my cell phone which was still recording the whole thing. A couple of dozen people watched this encounter and a few even clapped. Have you ever seen a mind being boggled? It's a show worth buying tickets for. Walmart won't get another cent out of me....ever again.
  16. One more idiot to add to the very huge, and rapidly growing, list. Why, they must be growing six or seven million a day across the country. (Do you know hard it is say that with your tongue in your cheek?)
  17. Tell her she needn't bother. I'll shoot you just for the fun of it. (I hope you know I'm kidding. I don't want you to take preventive measures and shoot me.)
  18. You'll notice that the same planes keep getting shot down throughout the series, and some of our P-51 fighters will go from "razor backs" to bubble tops from angle to angle in the same raid. Otherwise it's a really good series.
  19. I had one way back when they first came out. It may have been improved, but there was one fault: if you had any respect for your right thumb you would have to grind down and polish the cylinder latch. I did after the first few rounds and loved the ugly little brute. After I got to where I wasn't comfortable with the recoil I sold it to my son, who found some oversize softer grips for it He has since sold it to his son who at six foot five and two hundred eighty solid pounds thinks its just perfect for him.
  20. Saw a Navy CPO do something similar with a 1911 in 1976. He got four rounds in backward before he asked me for help.
