  1. I read an article months ago that paper shotgun shells are more expensive to make and it takes longer. Whatever they apply to the paper requires multiple coats and has to dry completely between coats
  2. That's why I use the gift bags as much as possible
  3. Her father is Thell Reed: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thell_Reed so while it may have only been the second time she was lead/head armorer for a movie, she probably has a great deal of experience with firearms. Without more information, I'm not willing to blame her, especially with everyone lawyering up and everyone blaming someone else
  4. The 20 gauge with the short barrels normally used for SASS & using factory loads in a generally lighter gun , has a well deserved reputation of having a sharp recoil that most shooters find unpleasant. Yes there are low recoil options out there, but they are probably going to be more expensive and harder to find than the equivalent load in 12 gauge. Unless you reload and/or already have a 20 gauge, there is really no good reason I can think of to buy a 20 gauge for SASS shooting versus a 12 gauge. As already stated, if you forget or run out of 20 gauge at a match, there probably won't be any other shooters to get ammo from. I've been shooting SASS in the Northeast for almost 25 years and I have seen only one shooter use a 20 gauge on a regular basis and that had 26" or 28" barrels.
  5. Add: How many people saw signs that the kid had issues but decided to kick the bucket down the road and let someone else deal with it?
  6. Shrug, Frontier is no better. Took me two weeks to resolve my internet (which I also use for work) from dropping out every 5-10 minutes. 4 telephone conversations, 3 chat conversations and two visits from technicians, one of whom apparently replaced to corroded connections and a new router sent to me.
  7. Just the physical part would kick my ass A link to the rules and more pictures: https://www.varusteleka.com/en/event/finnish-brutality-october-23-24-2021/61118 Video Link 1: Video Link 2:
  8. The 57th Wilde's Rifles was part of the 3rd Lahore Division, which along with the 7th Meerut Division made up the infantry component of the Indian Corps which saw service in France from 1914-1915 as part of the British Expeditionary Force. Havildar* Ganga Singh and 15 other Sikh's were holding a trench position during a German attack. The German reached the stretch of trench held by Havildar Ganga Singh and his men and in the ensuing hand to hand combat, Havildar Singh, who pre-war was a physical fitness instructor and district bayonet fighting champion, killed 5 Germans with his bayoneted rifle before the bayonet broke. He killed a German officer and proceeded to kill another 5-10 Germans (accounts are unclear) with the sword until he was injured severely enough that he was unable to fight and was left for dead. Havildar Singh was the only Sikh survivor and at the end of the battle there were at least 60 dead Germans in the trenches alongside the 15 dead Sikhs. Having been wounded 6 (both hands, leg, chest and scalp wound) times he was brought to England covered in bandages and splints for treatment and recovery. When asked about the fight, Ganga SIngh is reported to have said it was a good, heavy sword and I would have killed many more Germans if I hadn't been injured in the leg. Ganga Sing was awarded either the Indian Order of Merit 2nd class (probably equivalent to our Distinguished Service Cross) or the Victoria Cross. *Havildar is the Indian Army equivalent to sergeant
  9. My Christmas shopping is done already and I never left the house. The weather is is rainy and cold and I have to work today. And any "deals" out there isn't worth the aggravation of dealing with all those people anyway. Bah Humbug!
  10. I should be good for quite some time, I had been buying supplies even when I didn't really need them.
  11. Probably never. I suspect that in exchange for his testimony, the prosecutors agreed to drop all charges. Of course given that the POS's testimony helped the defense more than the prosecution they are probably regretting that deal.
  12. I don't remember has I had not yet been conceived. As to knowing if what we have been told so to date is the entire truth, a partial truth or a complete fabrication? Maybe, but not for at least a couple of more decades.
  13. The announcer is a bit much, but it's still interesting
  14. The dentist skit with Tim Conway & Harvey Korman
  15. I'm not. Being a George Zimmerman or a Kyle Rittenhouse doesn't have a lot of appeal. Win the court cases and you're hugely in debt to your lawyer (Zimmerman reportedly owes millions of dollars to his lawyers), lose and your still hugely in debt to your lawyer and you face decades or life behind bars. While the facts and the law supported both Zimmerman & Rittenhouse, in both cases I was a little surprised at the not guilty verdict. Zimmerman has mostly disappeared from public view and no company seems to be willing to hire him. We'll see what the future holds for Rittenhouse. In both cases there are prosecutors, who feel both got away with murder, who would love to put both of them behind bars.
  16. Already started, I believe there was one in Portland, Oregon Friday night
  17. Overall the movie is meh. What it does have is an occasional scene that is really funny, like the one of Congress posted above or the kids on a White House tour doing a better job than the Secret Service of killing the Martians. Most of the best scenes can probably be found on Youtube
  18. The denial is strong in Huber's family: Allegedly "Anthony Huber: Kenosha News reported that Huber has two domestic violence convictions for incidents involving his siblings. In the 2012 case, Huber was originally charged with strangulation and suffocation and false imprisonment — which are felonies — but he took a plea deal. According to The Washington Post, Huber was imprisoned in 2017 for violating the terms of his probation. He went back to prison in 2018 after kicking his sister and being charged with disorderly conduct." I will note that I am having trouble finding a source for this that I find fully credible and there is the possibility that the comments I quoted are not accurate On edit: "Prosecutors had hoped to highlight Huber's actions as heroic in questioning his great-aunt, Susan Hughes, who also testified that Huber had known Jacob Blake. But Schroeder ruled that such testimony would open the door for the defense to tell jurors about Huber spending time in prison for a family dispute in 2012 in which he threatened his brother with a knife and choked him."

  19. Supposedly under Wisconsin law he can not be sued in civil court If you want to risk life in jail and major legal bills under the same circumstances, more power to you. I don't. Just because the jury made the right decision in this case doesn't mean another jury won't come back with a guilty plea. We have reached a point where jurors have legitimate concerns about their identity being published in the MSM and having worry about angry people seeking them out. Not much the DOJ can get him for, he did not cross the state line with the gun and since the three attackers were all white, a civil rights case would be very hard to prove.
