  1. If I didn't have my trusty Big 5 Marlin 1894 .44 mag that I got for under $400 when I first joined SASS, I'd buy one! They've been out for awhile and all reports have been good. Now the 336 is out and that one I'm tempted to buy.
  2. As indicated, a seizure/forfeiture matter probably related to the gun's use in the commission of a crime.
  3. I had a great troop in the early-mid 1960s. Yearly 50 mile hikes in the Cascades and Olympics, including the Wonderland Trail around Mt. Rainier. Summer camp at Hahobas on Hood Canal five years running. We had outstanding leadership. Our main Scoutmaster was a dispatcher for the Northern Pacific Railroad. He could get the train stopped in the mountains for snow camp, stopping again to pick us up a couple of days later. Big part of my youth....
  4. Hereabouts 'Boy Scouts' lasted far longer than the early '70s; well into the 90s when my sons were involved.
  5. Congratulations! I worked for 48 years, then retired at 69, seven years ago. I'm occasionally asked if I miss work. I say that I do miss it in many ways. I miss the action and involvement. But I have no desire at all to do it again, and I like being retired very much. Enjoy!
  6. My twin grandchildren have the same birthday, amazingly! My mom's birthday was Christmas day and she admitted that as a kid she felt a bit overlooked. We all worked hard to recognize it.
  7. We've seen two local gun shops close in this city in the last year. Getting close now to big boxes only; but not quite.
  8. It's a big world these days. One grandson-in-law is a cyber genius from a far land originally. Another grandson-in-law's mother is Japanese-American. Her family have been American citizens longer than my paternal side has been. Both terrific guys. I've had good luck with sons-in-law and now with the next generation of 'em.
  9. I've encountered this in gun shops and big box gun departments so often that I practically take it for granted. There are many exceptions, of course, but it's way too common.
  10. Xpictoc Bockpece! Chistos anesti! El Maseh Qam! Christ is risen!
  11. Forgot that one. "You weren't born in a barn" I heard often.
  12. I'm hardly naive on issues of ethnicity and race, but nonetheless I've never heard anybody in these parts putting any kid down for being "mixed race". Fifty years ago, maybe. And in some parts of the country, I suppose.
  13. Where do you live that 'they' give biracial kids 'grief'? Nobody has ever given my 'biracial' great-grandchildren any grief, or their parents either as a matter of fact. They'd better not, but I've never seen a hint of it in these parts. "Mate outside their race"? You gotta be kidding.
  14. How would that ruin lustful thoughts? It had no affect on mine!
  15. Far and away the best scene: I guess you have to go to youtube to watch it, yet it passed the movie codes of the time! It's the swimming scene with Jane. Just hit that youtube link. While Weismuller was a great Tarzan, the REAL Tarzan is still the one of the books; considerably different.
  16. Because it's not in the first post, perhaps....
  17. Laugh and the world laughs with you; cry and you cry alone. If wishes were horses, beggars would ride. What time is it? "Half-past kissin' time, time to kiss again!" I'll be there in two shakes of a lambs tail. I wonder what the poor people are doing tonight.
  18. Always do. For one thing, there are a lot of kids in the neighborhood. Including some of my grandchildren.
  19. I add my voice to those who deplore these aberrant events!
  20. I thought they looked computer-generated. See AS beat me to it..... A matter of taste, anyway. Most look ponderous and near-ridiculous to me.
  21. CZ has several models in the 457. The Lux, which I have, is a really nice rifle. European-style stock, outstanding walnut all around. It's a beauty. CZ 457 Lux - CZ-USA
  22. As others have said, you make a will and any asset, including the book royalties, go to your named heirs. If you don't have a will, it goes to beneficiaries provided by statute; typically close family members in a stated order. I you have absolutely no 'statutory benficiaries', and no will, it will 'escheat'-- go to the state. State laws will govern.
