  1. I got to see them as Thunderbirds before they switched to the T-38s
  2. For some reason there's no sound, but you don't really need it. The opening scene from Air America
  3. I'm not ready to point fingers at firefighting efforts based on a few images and video clips shot from a great distance. Given the age of the structure (12th century) and the abundance of combustible material, it would go up like a match in just a few minutes, long before a meaningful firefighting effort could be mounted. If you've ever seen an old house or barn go up, you know how fast they can torch.
  4. AP article said speculation by fire dept is it's related to the renovation. Sounds like the ocean liner Normandy back in WWII.
  5. During an election cycle a lot of the robo calls I get are from the same politicians who lie to me.
  6. Thanks Birdgun. I ordered some 158 LSWC from Missouri Bullet yesterday. What's considered standard velocity? Lyman's cast bullet handbook shows a range of 769-837 fps for a 158 gr and Win 231. Range is 786-855 with Bullseye
  7. If this is your only objective, shoot blanks where the majority of the powder burns outside the barrel. This is my original .52 cal Civil War percussion Sharps loaded with 50 gr of only 2f for a 4th of July demo. Light to moderate boom since there's no bullet to create pressure. If your objective is to increase smoke and flame and still hit a target, you're wasting your time. Again, you'll need excess powder that burns outside the barrel which is terribly inefficient as well as destroying any semblance of a pattern. FWIW, my feelings regarding extra noise "echoes" those who are opposed.
  8. I've not perused this, but it looks like several pages of offerings here. https://www.ebay.com/b/Ruger-Single-Six-Grips/73944/bn_7023283614
  9. You can still see portions of the runways at the Fairfax site today. It remained open as an airport into the 1980s. It was closed when GM underwent a big expansion where the plant sits atop the runways.
  10. A friend of mine has Model 15-x Target/Combat that's in good shape. (I'll have to take a closer look at it.) Belonged to his dad but he never shoots it and it stays unloaded under a bed. Missing the original grips which at point were replaced with some cheap rubber ones. Not sure he'll part with it though. Still, it'd be sweet... Didn't expect an answer so fast, did you? Jim Supica's 4th edition of his Standard Catalog of S&W arrived today. It's like porn...
  11. Don't know what you paid for yours Pat, but this seller had it priced $200-300 more than mine for similar condition. Yours is nicer than the one I saw.
  12. I saw one of those, Pat. Or so the seller said - Hong Kong Police. I looked at so many guns I don't remember if it had the lanyard ring. It did have a white serial number stamped into the back strap. Does yours? The one I saw was priced $200-300 more than mine and in about the same condition, maybe a bit more worn. I didn't look long.
  13. Thx! According to this list, mine was produced in 1969-70
