    Naw. I figure I'm a pretty boring person.

  1. California and any other State cannot secede from the Union without the permission of Congress. I think California splitting into two separate States is a excellent idea. The rural agricultural counties are more conservative which will give us two new Senate seats in Congress.
  2. I accidently discovered that a 50/50 mix of crushed walnut hulls and corn cob work very well together. (It was a result of shifting corn cob from cleaned brass before checking what was already in the bottom of the shifter bucket). Since it works so well I now use the 50/50 mix on purpose.
  3. Actually I thought the large Marine did not look as sharp with as far has he had his legs spread apart. The other Marine standing at attention showed him up. I would also put my money on the smaller Marine in a fight. Them small guys are wiry and tough and the big jarhead makes for a bigger target.
  4. Well since the Packers are out of it I don't have a dog in this fight BUT I would love for the Pats to win just to watch Goodall's face when he has to give them the Superbowl trophy.
  5. Let me add that I really like SIG handguns. A P239 9mm is my primary edc. Nor am I bashing the new 320. The modular feature may prove to be a very successful design.
  6. The ability to switch between grip frames is being way over-hyped imho. From the linked article; "If you want to change from a 9mm to a 45ACP gun you don’t need a new firearm, just pay $350 to your parts supplier of choice and a conversion kit will arrive at your doorstep with everything you need to get running with your new chosen caliber…no FFL required. Or if you want to go from a full size gun to a compact carry version, $400 for a new barrel and grip is all you need." An additional $350 and $400.00 puts me in the used gun market. Even if I have to add some change I have two comple
  7. Nothing weird about it. As others have commented it is very common. I was talking to a co-worker and showing off the pictures of my new Grandson. She has four children ranging in age from 26 to 7 yoa. Her youngest is going to grow up playing with her adult kids children (her Grandchildren).
  8. This is only your opinion. See my comment above. The Marines only kept their custom made 1911's from 2012 - 2015 and have replaced it with the Glock 19. Special Ops and other highly trained units such as the Green Berets and Navy SEALS should get whatever weapons meet their mission requirements best. This includes such weapons as bow and arrows and crossbows. However all of the Special Forces in the entire U.S. Armed Forces comprised a very small number of personnel in our Armed Forces. In fact the Marines were unhappy with the custom 1911 they adopted in 2012; "The Marines chose t
  9. Stay focused. We are discussing use of the 1911, 1911A1 and Beretta M9 by the U.S. Armed Forces. The 1911 was only made until 1924. The 1911A1 was adopted in 1924 and made until 1945. The bulk of it's production was during World War 2. Production ended in 1945. In 2012 the Marines adopted a special model 1911 45 acp which were replaced only three years later in 2105 by the Glock 19 9mm. "The Marine Corps has authorized MARSOC operators to carry Glock pistols, since many of the elite outfit's members prefer the popular 9mm over the custom .45 pistols the service bought them in 2
  10. Just conduct a survey on the SASS Forum about what handgun members will choose if in combat. You are going to get answers from the S&W Model 10 38 Special revolver, various manufacturers .357, .44 and 45 ACP, 45 Colt revolvers, all sorts of semi-autos, and handguns in .223 such as the SIG 556 and AR. And then you are going to have s group that want a handgun such as a J-Frame revolver that is small enough to go everywhere with them including to the toilet. I wonder how many people that criticize the M-9 have spent much time learning how about it and how to shoot it. It has a far lo
  11. Most of today's soldiers do not have experience with firearms before joining the military. Thus their introduction and training with handgun is limited to what the military provides during training. As most MOS's do not require carrying a handgun so there is even less exposure and the opportunity to learn how to properly shoot a handgun. Allowing soldiers to make individual selection of their handgun would be a logistical and training nightmare.
  12. Send them to me. I think the Beretta 92 platform is a great firearm. it has 35+ years of combat use, use by law enforcement agencies world wide and by civilians to prove it. Lack of proper maintenance and abuse by poorly trained soldiers does not make it a poor handgun. Actually it is a testament to it's design that it performs well after such treatment. Contact me by PM to arrange for me to take those 92's and M9's off of your hands.
