  1. You have to hold it like that so you can get your eyeball closer the telescope thingee.
  2. I had forgotten about the BOB story. I don't even remember who his best friend was. I remember Kate Beckinsdale as the babe, but forgot her role in the movie. All in all, a really awful and forgettable movie.
  3. What movie was that? I’m only aware of Ben being a fighter pilot hero at Pearl Harbor and also bombing Tokyo. All in the same movie.
  4. I can't believe I ate the whole thing. Plop plop fizz fizz, oh what a relief it is. Double your pleasure, double your fun...
  5. Yup, people with money who didn't/don't understand you have to fly regularly and learn the handling characteristics & nuances of each plane. I've flown a lot of single engine planes and each one has peculiarities that can bite you in the ass and even kill you if you're not familiar and proficient with it. As the saying goes, "The Piper Cub is the safest plane in the world. It can just barely kill you."
  6. Good flick. Ian McShane plays a pilot in that movie. His appearance and voice sure have changed since then (1969) and now. But then, so have the rest of us.
  7. Bonanzas are sweeeet. Flown a number of them, but never a v tail. Would have liked to fly a Mooney too.
  8. Your post lead me to think you‘ve sold primers via GB recently, hence the interest. Apparently that isn’t the case.
  9. Assume you meant not authorized to "carry" a firearm?
  10. Just finished watching for the umpteenth time. Still can’t figure out the mysterious looking troop captain with the eye patch. Seems they went to some trouble to make him stand out from the rest of the cast, but played no real role in the story. I’m wondering if his character was just lost on editing room floor?
  11. That question comes too late in the day and makes my head hurt. Good night, Gracie!
  12. We used a boomerang prop a couple of weeks on an Aussie-written stage (boomerang sweep). I also like Didgeridoo music and have the “Outback” CD. I win!
  13. Which is usually followed by, “Is there anything else I can help you with?” ARRGGH!
  14. Based on the misshapen bullets shown in your photo, they’re slamming into the top of the chamber as they feed from the lifter. The gun is meant to handle .357 mag length cartridges which have a longer OAL. You can solve the problem with .357 mag cartridges or reloads that are around 1.05 OAL and a truncated cone bullet.
