  1. In other words, other than being at a range, pretty much realistic conditions for a DGU - bad lights, fast shooting, and your Mk. 1 eyeball. When my wife worked at a LGS/indoor range I could sometimes use the range that was used mostly for police training and qualifications, and for one of the shooting clubs to do some IDPA type stuff. Since I was the only one on the range I could go in front of the usual firing line. I'd hang a target, turn my back on it, set a timer and spend the time blindly running the target forward and back so I didn't know how close it was. When the timer went off turn, draw and fire. Best I could do on my own. I found that I was usually point shooting. One time I found myself with the muzzle about an inch from the target.
  2. U.S Army W.T.F! momentsLike Page 3 hrs What ever comes out of this is going to make an epic safety briefing next weekend Obviously authorized by Col. Charles Foxtrot.
  3. Thank you for telling us this, and reaching out to your friends here, Doc. I offer this for Beth: O Almighty God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we pray to You for Your servant Beth whose sickness is bringing her to the end of her earthly life. You are the God whose only-begotten Son taught us that not even the smallest sparrow can fall without Your knowledge, and that You hold all creation in Your merciful arms. Look upon Your servant Beth and allow this illness to be for the death only of those things which are the result of evil and sin. Let her thoughts be quieted with the peace and confidence of her final deliverance into the fullness of Your love. Keep her soul and body pure, and sanctify them during the time she remains among us, that on the last day she may be raised up with all Your saints to live with You in neverending glory. For to You belong praise and worship, to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen
  4. What a cutie! May you have a long, interesting, and loving relationship!
  5. Ask and it shall be given unto you!
  6. Part of a movie, "Last Frontier," about the Podolsk Cadets at the Battle of Moscow.
  7. Depending on which word or phrase history you look at, it could go back as a derogatory comment to the early 1800s. I would, however, put that "quote" from later, say in the 1930s. Another one, one that stands up to scrutiny, "There are 40,000,000 men under arms in the world today, and our statesmen and diplomats have the temerity to say that war is not in the making. Hell's bells! Are these 40,000,000 men being trained to be dancers?" ("War is a Racket" 1935)
  8. WHERE I WAS I was in bed, reading the paper and waiting for the coffee to perk. Had on the morning news/talk on KSRO. Heard that a plane had hit one of the towers, this was at maybe 0550 Pacific Time. No other deatails given at that time. I figured that some light aircraft had FUBARed and screwed the pooch. Went out, turned on the morning news and got a cup of coffee. Looked at the TV and yelled back to my wife to come out and see. Stunned. Gobsmacked. Knew it wasn't an accident. Saw the 2nd one hit. Sick to my stomach. Left for work. Just before I got there heard that the tower had collapsed. When I heard that Bush was flying out of FL my first thought was, "OH CHRIST! They've flushed him like a pheasant!" and I KNEW that someone was wating with a SAM or some aircraft or something to shoot down Air Force One. That whole day at work was a daze. We were all expecting to hear of attacks in Chicago, or Los Angeles, or San Francisco, or Seattle.
  9. In high school the chem teacher brought the bottle out, set it down on his demonstration table, opened it for about 3 seconds. That was all it took to fill the room with that wonderful aroma.
  10. One does wonder how she got tagged with that.
  11. Butyric Acid On a less technical level:
  12. I bet that some sort of filling or seasoning was spread on the "frough" before it was rolled up.
  13. Doesn't the DOJ call them "personal defense rifles " when carried by LEOs?
