  1. I've always used a small hammer and bass drift to remove/install dovetailed sights. Any experience or recommendations on the "Sight Pusher" devices? Are they worth the $$?
  2. I found this to be a good read: Kohn's War
  3. Loophole, having been a Californian since the Truman administration I can sympathize. I actually fear that someone In OUR legislature may attempt to copy... or worse, try a bit of one-upmanship.
  4. I'd like to really encourage everyone here to occasionally take a moment or two and check out the Team SASS page. Charlie T Waite and his team - but especially Charlie himself - are putting an incredible amount of energy into keeping us informed and up-to-date on the "oppositions" efforts to stifle our Second Amendment rights. I must say that it's disappointing to say the least to see the number of "Views" the posts are receiving. When a cartoon thread has over thirty-three thousand views, but a thread about the Supreme Court's potential study of a 2A issue may only have 20 or 30, well... it makes one question our priorities. And yes, I do visit the cartoon thread, too. But I start my day by hitting the Team SASS page. Granted, not every topic there applies to everyone. But many do, and many of them address VERY important issues - most of which you will never see mentioned in the MSM. And you don't have to reply or post opinions - but it'd sure be encouraging to see the "Viewed" numbers bumped up a mite. That said, let's all support Charlie and his crew!
  5. Perhaps political candidates should be screened for common sense and a basic understanding of the Constitution before they're allowed to run for office.
  6. Just in from Half-Breed Pete! Perfect timing, as we enter the early days of what local radio personality Ray Appleton calls "The Silly Season." But first, a few disclaimers: 1) If this has been posted before, my apologies for re-posting. If they haven't been posted before, they should have been. At any rate, they would bear re-reading. 2) Not verified for accuracy as to whom the quotes are attributed. Doesn't really matter - they stand on their own merit. 3) It should be noted that no particular office holders, candidates, nor parties are specifically "targeted" in any way. ('Tain't necessary! ) POLITICIANS If God wanted us to vote, he would have given us candidates. ~Jay Leno~ The problem with political jokes is they get elected. ~Henry Cate, VII~We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office ~Aesop~If we got one-tenth of what was promised to us in these State of the Union speeches, there wouldn't be any inducement to go to heaven. ~Will Rogers~Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river. ~Nikita Khrushchev~When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I'm beginning to believe it. ~Clarence Darrow~Politicians are people who, when they see light at the end of the tunnel, go out and buy some more tunnel. ~John Quinton~Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other. ~Oscar Ameringer~I offer my opponents a bargain: if they will stop telling lies about us, I will stop telling the truth about them. ~Adlai Stevenson, campaign speech, 1952~A politician is a fellow who will lay down your life for his country. ~ Tex Guinan~I have come to the conclusion that politics is too serious a matter to be left to the politicians. ~Charles de Gaulle~Instead of giving a politician the keys to the city, it might be better to change the locks. ~Doug Larson~There ought to be one day -- just one -- when there is open season on senators. ~Will Rogers~ * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Any favorites?
  7. Most of us have been zinged by "bounce-backs," but this is a bit much. "Several years ago, but still interesting. Armalite AR-50. The ammo was South African Mil-Surp. The range was 100 yards. The target plate was only 1/4″ thick. It should have been like tissue paper to the 750 grain slug at 2800 FPS."
  8. Yup. About 8:45. RIGHT in front of the horses. Didn't take long at all for someone to drag 'is arse away....
  9. A micro-reunion of ET and Elliot. Okay ~ time for a Duke movie.
  10. Doc, I think the "issue" is that they reverse of the dog tag has a branch or unit logo: I'm just disgusted at the pettiness that some people exercise. Someone's upset because someone else is wearing something (likely unseen) that they don't like? Really?? As my dear, late friend Doxna would have said, "Big Fuzzy Ducks!"
  11. I really don't give a hang how someone else want's to worship or whatever... they have a right to do so* so let 'em have at it. *I do draw the line at sacrificing puppies or little children. Not sure 'bout an odd virgin or two...
