  1. I've only seen one western where the stage blew the bugle before coming in. forgot the name
  2. saw in a pawn shop today a S & W model 66 4 inch barrel the stainless finish had some minor scuff and scratches but otherwise in good condition and grips are like new. does not look like it was fired much. they wanted 799. i felt sure that was too high then he said 599. how much are they usually worth, no box etc?
  3. not only do women never forget but never remember correctly marshall mo hare but they also like to make sure you remember the incorrect version
  4. i was watching "the Big Country" and they focus on the wheel of the stage coach and you can see smoke coming from the center. how often did they have to stop and add more grease to the wheel?
  5. i guess the 3 months for a higher belt means that i was right in thinking they train for a test and not for actual karate? how long should it be between test?
  6. i stopped liking star wars when they said darth vader was the result of immaculate conception. to me that just was immoral to compare him to Jesus and plus in 6 Leah says she had images of her mom and Luke said he never knew her but in a future past episode their mom died at birth and both were afterwards sent separate ways so no way leah could have images and not luke.
  7. my thought as well Chlli. if its not legal why do it. along with that 3 hours a day 5 days a week is a lot of time away from the family and not studying. free labor for them does not constitute charity from me. if it was volunteering to help at a hospital or nursing home like a candy stripper or something once in a while to help people then that is fine, but to give a company free work just because they make it sound like it is good for you is just wrong. once you get past high school and get a job i doubt anyone cares about you working for free as a teenager at a dojo.
  8. this dojo is the only game in town. every 3 months they test for the next belt and each test cost an additional $50. the nearest town that might have a better program is at least 45 minutes away.
  9. also protects from sunburn and nose hairs filter out pollen and cigarette smoke so keep those too. cuts down on gun smoke getting in your lungs too
  10. I've been watching my daughter at some of her karate classes. I'm concerned they are not really teaching them anything but could be wrong. they have student trainers mostly adult women who help out but they too seem unable to perform some of the task. supposedly they are training her to get the yellow belt after white. so they have them stretch, then kick with the right foot 10 times, then the left foot 10 times then switch off then go to something else and do that 10 times. the student trainers will give my daughter points but they all kick weakly or barely hit the foam mats they hold on
  11. daughter seems fine today, wife not so much but I'm used to it. pre chemo-=no problem, post chemo= its a roll of the dice the more i think about it the more I'm opposed to it. the more the lady at the dojo spoke of "job experience, and MAYBE if she does well we will take some or possibly all the tuition off" the more i thought of these shady jobs you get sometimes where sometime someday just never comes. the more we talked the more there were requirements they would throw up for her to get consideration. then while I'm on the phone with her my son comes to tell me my daughter just got
  12. talked the the dojo. said they want her to come help the little kids with homework and keep an eye on them for free, NOT tell the ATA, she has to complete 300 hours of training before getting her instructors belt, THEN after that 300 hours at the next contract renewal they will consider a break in tuition and MAYBE free tuition IF she meets their standards. i figure it will take 5 months to get the 300 hours in if they count every minute she is there so by then we would have renewed already so i figure at best 11 months before free tuition. i told them no. the wife is the mother as
  13. i will amend my statement that only a fool works for free as I will do that sometimes to help someone.
  14. badlands bob is right. you can take classes at some indoor ranges etc but you can get a permit with out them if you pay the money and get fingerprinted and wait a couple of months.
  15. tuesday my wife and just turned 13 year old daughter who started karate 2 months ago came home form karate all excited about a wonderful opportunity. daughter said she was glad i was in a good mood. she could tell i was in a good mood because i pretended to grab her to see if her karate was working when she walked in the kitchen. she could not get me to the ground, which told me she has not progressed that much yet. she won't be tested for her yellow belt until saturday and admits she is weak in parts of it. they tell me how the dojo came to her and said because she is a leader and
  16. i think the 100 range is more to his liking. give or take a little.
  17. a friend wants a couple of 35-40 year old 410 single or double shotguns to pass down to his grandchildren. he does not mind worn finish or wood as he is willing to make them pretty again. He's a farmer by trade so does not want to go broke buying them.
  18. are there any out there? I had one but a friend wanted it and was killed before he paid me for it.
  19. i think this one has the colt wood looking plastic grips or so it seems from the picture
  20. What is the value of a like new Colt Cobra .38 with Cobra marked leather holster? 2 inch barrel,
  21. i usually pop Orville's in sunflower oil and a pat of butter, but the other day my local grocery store had some other brand black kernels and they were more tasty but not very fluffy. Who makes the best popcorn for taste and fluffy?
  22. i have one posted for sale in the forum. some of the finish was rubbed off by the devious owner to make it look used but since there are no CAS matches within 2 hours from here i doubt it was used in a match
