  1. I'm looking at a copy of those proposed regs right here on my desk. It's on aft (lol) dot gov if you care to read it. Four pages of nonsense designed to "do something about" 80 percent "kits". Raylan and Waxahachie have it right. It is, in fact, a bit odd what aft considers a "receiver" currently. An AR it's the lower. An FAL or L1A1 it's the upper and so on. They actually have definitions that cover this now and they do in fact work, and they do in fact, comply with the 1968 GCA which the proposed regs do NOT. Under the proposed regs, a SLIDE could be defined as "receiver". Think
  2. Naw, don't think so. I suppose most of us remember 2011-12. THat there didn't really get back to "normal" until around 2018-19 and those prices/stock levels were just getting back to pre-2011. Sorta. During that period, I was happy to have a steady supply of Aguila 22 SuperExtra available for $45/500. 5.56/.223 at $9/20 or 12 depending. It was just getting back to .30 per round (bulk pricing) when this hit. 38 special I used to get Winchester white box for around 7.99/50 before 2011. By 2019 it had pretty much sorted itself out to around 20-25 a box. Primers $36/1M, powder depending
  3. LOL. Charter Arms. First one I took apart like, almost forty years ago I hadda send back to the factory to get back together. S&W M&P. putting the trigger guts back is a PITA. Slave pins is yer fren LOL. HK USP. Old tech nowadays but in the 90's (sounds weird sayin' it like that, haha, like "back in the fifties...") I went to the HK armorers course. When we got to the frame, I misunderstood the instructions and took it all apart. Instructor comes by. "You know, we don't take those parts out outside the factory. You'll find out why when you try to get it back together." L
  4. One of my good friends I've known for almost fifty years went into the "family Business" LOL. Ray & Bob's Truck sales. I bought my first car from him. When I wrecked my mom's Volvo, I was expected to replace it....Ray & Bob's. 1968 Ford Custom which is the same body style as the Galaxie but designed as a fleet car. "My" first car was a 1973 Plymouth Sattelite, also a former PD car from Ray & Bob's. I didn't buy my first new car until 1985. Learnt a bit since then LOL. When I finally got done with family court obligations, I'd promised Cimarron a new car. She searched th
  5. I enlisted in 1978. Most of my NCO's were combat vets. They all had this....stare. After forty years myself, I know why. During my LE career, I spent a lot of time teaching these very same subjects on mental health to recruits as far as survival goes. One can only live in "survival mode" for so long. People have been bombarded with how deadly this is when in reality, it's only that to about point 02 percent. In short, they had the wits scared out of'em over mostly nothing. So that shell-shocked attitude on the part of some people is understandable. Make no mistake, it's real. I've
  6. Saturday Night Special Assault Weapon Ghost Gun Getting The Picture Yet? LOL Buzzwords. Hyperbole. Blahblahblah. The media and our politicos love them. One thing to remember; NONE of their hype means less crime. It is a means to an end that the "masses" will easily digest and nod their heads in assent "yeah, that bad, we should do something...please Mr politician, save me from the (insert stupid term of the week here)" Unlike Pat, I'm up early, not up late so I'm not crabby yet What is their end? Disarm America. None of this has ANYTHING to do with crime or
  7. Not my old agency, third largest S.O. in the US. Standard ten card was all that was used for jail bookings. Our ID techs would do palm or edge prints but you had to ask for it. NCIC can store the Henry classification and the NCIC system which are different. Back when I was doing warrants I went through an FBI school to do that LOL. In the field, I could compare the suspect's fingerprints to the NCIC code listed in the warrant. All it really is is the type of print on each finger, arch, wohrl, loop etc. For positive ID you either had to have an AFIS match or, have an ID tech do it. Matching the
  8. That's right. Be good little boys and girls and we'll let you out to play. No. Joebama's comments were laughable. Seen the Kim Jong Un video? LOL. He had some very unkind things to say about the sockpuppet and all of them were true. Pretty bad when the world's #1 commie dictator calls it correctly! You know this is not a drill, right? You know this (none of it) isn't over, right? This, what we're living in in progress. Live, and in living color. "They" seem confused because they are. SO..... this Fourth, do what you want. What you yourself feel safe to do. Party on dudes, b
  9. Hah? Whut??? LOL I didn't know Mr Potato head HAD a gender. I had one and I'm sure I'da noticed LOL. I shall refrain from commenting further on these people that insist on shoving THEIR preferences down OUR throats. No thank you.
  10. MyMyMy....I never knew LOL Always knew SASS folks were my kinda people...ever since I first laid eyes onna bunch enjoying "after match refreshments" at one of my local ranges. I was teaching a class on another bay and our storage conex was on that there one. Asked "what in the world was this?" that was the start of a journey that so far, has lasted 18 years. I have a number of people I follow on social media and many have fallen victim to the same kind of deplatforming that Patriot Patch Company did. Know what? Farcebook isn't the only one out there. Got your server nuked like
  11. I also know that if you call a Brigadier General "Chief" they get a bit testy.
  12. OhHO! LOL, thanks for that article Joe, I was kinda figuring that and it's gonna suck for the airlines (but the A&P people will be making bank on all the OT maybe LOL) Airbus A300/A330, B767 (dot mil ain't gonna like that one) B747-400. Imagine that. Or, if it was the GE engine, all those other planes can breathe easy because the 777 is the only one uses that I think.
  13. You don't see that every day. The 777 was designed with those big'ol engines so it would be fully certified for overwater flights. It's easily capable of flying on one. Having this happen on takeoff is just extra spicy and not only a testament to Boeing, but to the pilots. Ain't easy flying on just one! (don't ask me how I know that LOL) Either there was a catastrophic engine failure or it sucked up something it didn't like. (I'm purty sure it'd take more than a bird to do that) Those engines have been in service over 20 years and are darned reliable. Unusual to see the cowlin
