  1. You may want to see if you can find a shoe maker or shoe repairer who might be able to help you modify the shoe that fits tightly. Also maybe see see a podiatrist, could a shoe orthotic help? I have short, wide feet and have found the Justin Work boot very comfortable to the point it is the shoe I wear them most often, even more then sneakers. Mine are at least 10 years old and going strong. Link: https://www.justinoriginalworkboots.com/footwear/men/styles/8-inch-lace-up/WK630

  3. I saw them back in 2002 at the Hartford Civic Center. I figured I might as well go see them before they stop touring. I was a casual fan prior to that set and became a much bigger fan after watching that show. I've also watched a number of their tour DVD's including as recently as 2016. The Rolling Stones put on a spectacular live show, even if they are in their seventies. I would probably go see them again in a civic center sized venue (and bring ear plugs), but my dislike of large crowds would cause me to skip arena or stadium sized shows.
  4. I suspect the commissioner of baseball was and is limited to how much punishment he can handout under both MLB rules and the agreement the Player's Union has with MLB.
  5. Hartford Armory made Remington 1875 & 1890 revolvers in a number of calibers. Quality was very high and prices reflected the quality and high production standards. I was fortunate to know the owner and called him a friend, sadly he passed away. I handled and fired some of the early production models. I wish I had had the money to buy one back then, they really are beautiful guns and don't seem to make it to the used market very often, if at all.
  6. I want a refund on my ticket price!
  7. Link: https://www.bbc.com/news/newsbeat-51368668 With all the bad & unpleasant news being blasted at us 24/7 it's nice to see a happy story
  8. It hasn't been in continuous service as long as the other guns I mentioned and adding the electric motor significantly changes the gun, while the guns I mentioned haven't changed much, if at all, from their original design.
  9. It leaves Indian service after 75 years of service: Link: https://www.business-standard.com/article/current-affairs/republic-day-up-police-bids-adieu-to-british-era-303-rifles-after-75-yrs-120012600137_1.html It also left Canadian Ranger Service several years ago: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Rangers#Rifle_replacement Old "soldiers" still on active service: the Colt 1911, the Browning M2, the M1917 Enfield Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sirius_Dog_Sled_Patrol#Equipment and the Mosin-Nagant: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7.62_Tkiv_85
  10. A SIG P320 should reliably feed 9mm 115, 124 & 147 gr bullets. My personal preference for 9mm defensive ammo is the CCI Gold Dot 124gr +p, however you will receive a lot of different answers as to what the factory defensive load should be. I would suggest picking a defensive load and then reloading to approximately the same velocity using the same bullet weight as the factory defensive load and perhaps also a less powerful reload for plinking and for children
  11. Simo Häyhä's skill & bravery are without question, however I read in a book that most of the shots he took were under 200 yards and at least some were taken at even shorter ranges with a Suomi M-31 submachine gun. I've read a number of books written by snipers who fought in WWII and the majority of shots were well under 800 yards and IIRC, most were between 300-500 yards. Given the equipment available at the time that is still very good shooting.
