  1. NineOfHearts I will take them if you still have them. Let me know where to send the money and I will have a Postal Money order out probably by Wednesday. That is when I will send it out. Thanks Dustin Checotah
  2. I like that. A fellow that I know on facebook will say something and I will ask for sources. No comment back. He said something about something being unconstitutional. I asked him what article and section it was in I would check my copy. No response. I posted a picture of my copy in my hand.
  3. I remember as a youngster seeing 20mm anti tank guns for sale like that. I think the ones that I saw were Lahti guns but I think they fire the same round. I did get to shoot one of the Lahtis about10 years ago at one of the Hiram Maxim Machinegun shoots that were held in Dover-Foxcroft Maine. I didn't really notice the recoil because the gun was 136 lbs. and on bi-pod.
  4. I visited Gunnison Colorado in the summer of 75, I was there for 2 weeks. I saw the same bumper sticker as you mentioned. I thought it was funny and most likely true. I was born in California and have lived in 8 different states. I now and for the last 40 years have lived in Maine. Colorado has Californication we have MassHoleitis. But just like Cali. not all the people from Mass. are bad.
  5. They tried the drones but they were too erratically flown. Pilots sampling the goods.
  6. I have seen Mauser banner micrometers and calipers. So if the scope is made with quality use it.
  7. Those stories are true. Retired July 2016 from the USPS. But there are some good ones.
  8. Stupid? When I was a clerk in the Postal Service they would pay me 2 hours overtime to bring a piece of Express mail out so it would not be late on the delivery promise. If it was late they would have to pay the sender the $8.50 postage. That is if they put in a claim. I asked them why didn't they just return the postage with an apology. I got no answer on that. what I did get was time out of the office and a nice ride in the Maine countryside visiting some of the small town Post Offices.
  9. Look at the top right hand side of this pic. LAWRENCE, Thomas Hurshel Look at the 4th line. U.S. ARIZONA This was salvaged from the Arizona. It is my fathers service jacket. It is in my possession. The event will not be forgotten in my house either.
  10. Today being Dec. 7th so I will post this. Another reason that I post this is from the 2nd picture. Look at the name top right. LAWRENCE, Thomas Hurshel. Look at the fourth line U.S.S. ARIZONA. That is my father and the first ship he was assigned to. He was one of the few that survived the attack on Dec. 7, 1941
  11. I have an adjustable wrench around somewhere that has the Inch size on one side and the metric on the other. Either way they can round metric or SAE nuts and bolts.
  12. 100 months? I have a bottle of Beam that my parents got before 1980. It is still unopened. It is one of the Model-T Ford bottles.
  13. I think my music sheet for tinnitus would be a bit more covered than the original post. I seem to have 3 or 4 different tones plus clicks and pops on some occasions. Location seems to be all around. I tell people that there is nowhere I can go where it is quiet. I am pretty sure I acquired mine in the proximity of (2) two 70,000 HP steam turbines and two 8 Megawatt turbine generators. I always wore sound attenuators or earplugs when the engineroom was operating. 6 or 8 hours in that environment and you could feel it in your bones.
  14. A Chief Petty Officer never drinks. Doesn't sound like any CPOs that I knew.
