  1. ...or that it's better to be thrown clear instead of trapped inside the wreck.
  2. In an era of rampant carjackings, the first thing I do is lock the doors.
  3. It’s sleight of hand https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleight_of_hand
  4. I like em locked. They unlock on the second pull of the inside opening lever.
  5. The only natural pointers I’m aware of are certain breeds of dogs.
  6. Same as real BP. No different than what you’ve been doing for years, pard.
  7. Why aren’t hemorrhoids called asteroids instead?
  8. This must really be funny because it gets posted pretty much constantly.
  9. I don’t know how the international date line works in Oz, but on this side of it in Kansas, (the other Oz), it’s Thursday 10/21.
  10. Seems this thread has more to do with asstronomical phenomena…
  11. This is the image I have of Buhdda which is what I saw when living in Japan. The Great Buhdda of Kamakura:
  12. Maybe this helps? https://www.payetteforward.com/why-doesnt-gmail-work-on-my-iphone-heres-the-fix/
  13. I also bought a rifle butt cover for a ‘73 carbine. Nice quality but was a really tight fit that didn’t conform completely to the squared off top the butt. I eventually got it on, but the laces don’t fully close underneath. Doesn’t bother me enough to do anything about it. Shouldn’t be a problem with a standard butt.
  14. Scroll down to the leather wraps. I’ve bought two of these. High quality and video is online. http://www.pioneergunworks.com/leather-goods-1
  15. BB, here is a photo and text copied from a post the man himself, Nate KJ, posted 10-12 years ago on this forum. (I kept this for my own archives.) Nate does business as Steve's Gunz (https://stevesgunz.com). Here's a link that will give you several "hits" on the topic. https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=steve's+gunz+rossi+92+video&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8 "As some of you know, I specialize in these CAS leverguns and have been for the last 18 years. Here are some things that I have found. As for the feeding problem with these rifles, all our leverguns are length and bullet shape sensitive to some degree. Like semi-auto handguns, they can be picky about what they will run and the faster we try to go with them the more often these problems tend to show up. I think one of the reasons folks like the 66&73's is they are less ammo sensitive than the others. Someone mentioned that these 38-357 guns are designed to shoot the 357mags and they do better with the longer 357m rounds. That`s just not the case. What Rossi, Marlin and Winchester have done with these 38/357 guns and to some degree the 44sp/44m guns is compromise the timing to handle both lengths. This compromise is like a combo tool compared to a tool that is designed to do one specific job. The combo tool will never do as good of a job as the tool that is designed specifically for the job. That is one of the reasons marlin came out with their cowboy comp. in 38 only. It's not just an OAL issue. It's an OAL and bullet shape issue. The very best feeding cals are the bottleneck cals these guns were originally chambered for. You have a little bullet going into a big hole funneling down. Make ammo that replicates this as much as possible. An elongated style flatpoint bullet without any external driving bands in a 38 case works best and that is because it is much easier to lengthen 38`s as compared to shortening 357`s. When making these long 38`s keep in mind, just because a lead bullet has a crimp groove, that doesn't mean you have to use it. You can seat the bullet out long and crimp right into the side of the lead. A good place to start is to seat a RNFP bullet out to about 1.5 OAL or slightly longer. Here is a good example of a lead bullet set out beyond the crimp groove in a 38 spec case. The other thing to consider is no two guns are alike. When the parts for the guns are made, the maker has a nominal size for each and ever parts that goes into the gun. But they will accept a part that is plus or minus a few thousands. Once all these various parts are assemble every gun will be slightly different. This is called stackup. I have had consecutive serial numbered gun here. One would run even on empty brass, the other would not run on anything without some tweeking. If you have tried different styles of ammo the gun may need some timing work to run right." --Nate Kiowa Jones
  16. Totally destroyed and pilot killed too. Links below. The second link supports the author's speculation in the article. https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/27808/northrop-n-9m-flying-wing-crashed-after-doing-a-barrel-roll-according-to-ntsb-report https://www.accidents.app/summaries/accident/20190422X61451
  17. Yup, I've found the SASS search to be almost useless. You can type in 4 of 5 words you know to be correct from a topic title, and it brings up every topic related the individual words resulting in hundreds of suggestions. Or, it may show nothing at all. Arghh!
  18. We were stuck with Broncs/Raiders which was a foregone conclusion in the last 8 minutes of the game. Meanwhile Dallas and New England were going at it on the same network CBS. Got to see the OT part but wouldn’t have minded if they cut off the the Broncs game.
  19. Lays - makes my eyes water just thinking about it!
