  1. Nothing like hard economic times to bring the old coins out again into circulation. Were the coins in the OP gold plated at the mint? I have a substantial number of Bicentennial dollars, halves and quarters, but have never seen any that came from the mint gold plated. There were a lot of plated, painted and otherwise altered Bicentennial coins produced by private companies; few if any are worth anything more than face value (and then some are worth less because they are defaced). LL
  2. Very intriguing.... https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/11/us/ar-15-guns-law-atf-invs/index.html LL
  3. I think I would need a better reason to "black ball" a cowboy gun maker than an uniformed policy. Now, on the other hand, I would walk quickly away from a dealer who wanted to cut my barrels..... LL
  4. Unless there is something very unusual in the laws of your state, I can think of nothing that gives a gun dealer the right to refuse to return your property or to demand that he be allowed to cut your barrels before he delivers the gun back to you. My first stop would be the police; my second would be my lawyer.
  5. Actually, lawyers typically offer advice. CEOs or owners run the business. Sometimes they follow the lawyer's advice, sometimes not. As a lawyer, I would have told the owner to return the gun unrepaired, but with prominent markings and warnings, documented and provably delivered to the gun owner. I would not have advised the business to deface or alter the gun. It's a tough call. Example: (1) Factory returns the gun, after deciding that it is unsafe, but does not make repairs or mark the gun in any relatively permanent way (as most folks here seem to believe should have been done); (2) the owner receives the gun from the factory, and resells the gun to an unsuspecting purchaser; (3) gun fails on the range, injuring the new owner (or an innocent by-stander); think vision loss, multiple surgeries, hospital bills, lost wages, disfigurement and permanent disability - a verdict potential in the 7 figure range. Who is responsible? I can see potential claims against (a) the factory, for not repairing the gun when they had it; (b) the factory, for not disabling the gun before returning it; (c) the factory, for not permanently and prominently marking the gun in such a way that the new purchaser would have been informed (like marking the barrels); (d) the original owner, for not passing on the danger warning and for selling a gun known to be defective and dangerous. Unfortunately, the original owner probably has minimal assets, and could not satisfy a substantial judgment. So, the prime target defendant is the factory. Can you blame them (and their lawyers) for trying to limit their liability? How many million dollar verdicts before their insurer cancels their coverage, or prices it out of range? How many uninsured claims before they are out of business? LL
  6. ComisiĆ³n Internacional Para la Observancia de la Ley - the Latino version of U.N.C.L.E. - as in "Man From".
  7. Hey!! That's Gil Favor (Eric Fleming), the trail boss of Rawhide!! Cowboys in space!! LL
  8. https://www.definitions.net/definition/Azas I knew they were big, but who knew that they could house and feed multiple people? LL
  9. I'm impressed by the 1948 image....I would not have expected to have had so many female officers at that time. LL
  10. Virtue signalling, to the segment of the buying public that they are now targeting. LL
  11. There's a wide variety of hangers and hardware available to connect masonry, concrete or other facade panels to structural steel. Drawing below is one example. LL
  12. Ooooh..... 61 to 24 to 6...that's brutal. Long undies weather, for sure. Hope you tuned up the snow blower. LL
  13. It's kind of amazing, isn't it? More than half the money donated to ALL charities in this program went to the NRA!!! Says something about how dedicated NRA members are to responding with support for their interests. Now, if we could double the number of folks who use this program, think what the numbers would be. I'm willing to bet that most gun owners do not know about this program. LL
  14. You can direct Amazon to donate to the NRA based upon how much you buy. My latest report: "This is your quarterly AmazonSmile donation notification. Your charity, NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund, recently received a quarterly donation of $5,736.18 thanks to customers shopping at smile.amazon.com.To date, AmazonSmile has donated a total of: $85,569.51 to NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund $144,958,582.84 to all charities Thank you for supporting NRA Civil Rights Defense Fund by shopping at smile.amazon.com. You can track your impact throughout the year at your My Impact page. I get a chuckle everytime I see this - my own type of Social Justice. LL
  15. 1860 Henry 159 years....and still being used competitively...well, sort of. LL
  16. My Dad was a big Brylcreem user back in the '60s. He also traveled a lot for work. In the early morning darkness of an Iowa motel room, he once brushed his teeth with what he thought was a tube of toothpaste....just a little dab will do ya! Yuck! LL
  17. Well, I didn't know we were going to get into citations and footnotes... https://www.dictionary.com/browse/anon Reading the OP again, it seems that SD has it right. LL
  18. I think you are thinking of "anon"; an antiquated word for "presently" or "for the moment". Too many years reading English poetry, where antiquated words and usages reign supreme. LL
  19. Had a partner who represented a meat wholesaler who sold non-USDA compliant meat to foreign countries. Some of the descriptions of contaminated products in his cases were absolutely disgusting. I don't eat beef or pork when I travel to the Caribbean. LL
