  1. A young investment banker goes out and buys the car of his dreams - a brand new Ferrari GTO. After paying $500,000, he takes it out for a spin and stops at a red light. While waiting for the light to change, an frail looking old man on a yellow moped pulls up next to him. The old man looks over at the Ferrari and asks, "What kind of car ya' got there, Sonny?"
    The young man replies, "A Ferrari GTO. It cost half a million dollars!"
    "Wheeewee... that's a lot of money," says the old man as he tucks his thumbs up against his suspenders. "Why does it cost so much?"
    "Because this car can do up to 320 miles an hour!" states the banker proudly.
    The moped driver asks, "Mind if I take a look inside?"
    "No problem," replies the proud new owner. So the old man pokes his head in the window and looks around at all the bells and whistles lining the dashboard. Sitting back on his moped, the old man whistles and says, "That's a pretty nice car, all right... but I'll stick with my moped!"
    Just then the light changes, so the banker decides to show the old man just what his car can do. He floors it, and within 30 seconds, the speedometer reads 160 mph! Suddenly, he notices a yellow dot in his rear view mirror. It seems to be getting closer! He slows down to see what it could be, and suddenly... Whoooooosssshhhhh! Something blows by him, going much faster!
    "What in the hell could be going faster than my Ferrari?" the young man asks himself. He floors the accelerator and takes the Ferrari up to 250 mph. Then, up ahead of him, he sees that it's the old man on the moped! Amazed that the moped could pass his Ferrari, he gives it more gas and passes the moped at 275 mph. Whoooooosssshhhhh!
    He's feeling pretty good until he looks in his mirror and sees the old man gaining on him again! Dumbfounded, the banker floors the gas pedal and takes the Ferrari all the way up to 320 mph. Not ten seconds later, he sees the moped bearing down on him again!
    The Ferrari red lines and there's nothing more he can do! Suddenly, the moped plows into the back of his Ferrari, demolishing the rear end. The young man stops and jumps out, and unbelievably, the old man is still alive. He runs up to the mangled old man and says, "Oh my God! Is there anything I can do for you?" The old man whispers with his dying breath... "Unhook... my... suspenders... from... your.... side view mirror."

  2. from that page under his picture,

    Jughead Jones

    It was high school when I made a weapon out of metal (for a school project, obviously). Since then, learning about guns, weapons, and accessories has never stopped. This is Jughead Jones; welcome to my dream page, “Gunsmithing Hero.” Here I will share all my gun hacks, reviews, weapon mechanism, and much more.

  3. I've had trouble with aftermarket chokes coming loose, I stick with factory chokes. The original chokes were designed for the old standard barrels when they started back boreing the old chokes were to small. That's why so many makers had to design new tubes with a slightly larger diameter. Browning invector which is just the  original Winchoke was to small for the back bored sporting gun so browning made the invector plus

    Neither of my Benellis are gas operated.  If the Franchi inertia driven semi auto is at all similar, you’ll be astounded at how fast it’ll operate. 

    Since Franchi is under the Berreta brand as is Benelli I believe they are the same action. Choke tubes should interchange as well.

    This whole thread about bounty hunters and nobody has thought to mention Duane “Dog” Chapman from the hit TV show Dog the Bounty Hunter??!! We need to do better, fellas. 

    When the navy sent my son to Hawaii they had no base housing for him, so the got him a cheap rental somewhere. First day on his way to work he sees Dog and his crew out front, thought that was cool. Second day he sees Dog running up his street. Third day Dog is out there again, decided he needed the navy to get him out of that neighborhood.

    The tires look "jeep" to me.

    I still hear people debating if a deer should be hung by the neck or rear legs. And then there’s the aging venison debate

    My dad was a hang 'em by the neck guy. I once asked my dad how long to age the meat.

    Dad:" depends on temperature warmer shorter, colder longer" 

    Me: " ya but how long is that?"

    Dad: "till it smells right"

    Me: " How do I know if it smells right."

    Dad: " when every dog in the neighborhood wants in the garage, probably time to butcher."

    The more I look at this picture the more I see. Birch trees, rifles with no scopes, deer hung by its neck, all scream U.P. Michigan hunting camp to me. There are letters carved in the tree above the guys hand, maybe claiming their spot? The guy in the middle, not my father but that's exactly what my dad would have looked like, how he would have dressed back in the 60's at deer camp.

    And they could be brought into this country, until Bill Clinton said no.

     

    My understanding is that they were the basis of many custom guns because they were very well made, very strong, and very cheap.

    They were not that well made just cheap. You throw everything away but the frame and slide you want cheap. I had 2 slides to cut for adj sights, one was as soft as any gun parts I ever cut, the other so hard I almost couldn't cut it. Poor quality control on the heat treat.
