  1. "About all I can say for the United States Senate is that it opens with a prayer and closes with an investigation." -Will Rogers
  2. The author is a pinhead. There were some bad decisions made with the intelligence the US had (pure 20-20 hindsight), but the claim about withholding info of the planned attack has been thoroughly debunked.
  3. Did he stay with the ship during the rebuild, or sent elsewhere to serve?
  4. +1 My shooting glasses are set up the same way and take some getting used to after the progressive lenses. I can now put them on about 10 or 15 minutes before the shooting starts and not think about them for the rest of the match.
  5. A critical battle, long forgotten among the many from the war to end all wars. Thx for the post, Joe.
  6. I'm in the midst of a big photoshop project and took a break from a mind-numbing task to enhance these three OP images. Based on the first image below, it appears you're correct, CC. Now take a look at the second image where the bolt is fully retracted. A little movement of the lever when the pic was taken could account for the protruding bolt. Without handling the rifle, it'd be difficult to tell about the timing. I'm also looking at the sharp edges of the carrier which appear to be gouged in the last photo. Does that suggest anything amiss with the carrier?
  7. Driftwood has already touched on different specs between guns. Turn your rifle over and measure the receiver length. This is a pic of my Uberti that measures 1.601. How does yours compare to your cartridge OAL? You may need to adjust your OAL to suit this particular rifle. Try a few of different lengths and let us know how it turns out.
  8. I bet you find the OAL of your cartridges is shorter than the snap caps. As already noted, your cartridge looks too short and is allowing the one in the magazine to protrude too far into the receiver. Either you've loaded it that way, or they're telescoping because of an improper crimp. A few cycles of dummy rounds thru a Henry will telescope them pretty good if the crimp isn't right. With a 200 gr, .428 Missouri Bullet, my cartridges measure 1.584 and feed great in my Uberti Henry. Max OAL according to Lyman's Cast Bullet Handbook is 1.592.
  9. Maybe she learned gun handling from Chief Inspector Drayfus. (Scroll to the 2:30 mark.)
  10. Pat, methinks you need Ironman's suit or something made by Stark Industries...
  11. Agreed. A West Point grad and I have been watching this game together for the last 14 years. We have a standing bet where the “loser” has to do 20 push-ups. The last several years I’ve had to perform and I’m getting too old for this. Beat Army, go NAVY!
  12. Alpo, that makes my head hurt. I'll let you know after I've had several more shots of Basil Hayden. Things will be clearer then.
  13. Charlie, I witnessed the exact same thing at "town hall meeting" back in '04, but it was with Dick Cheney. A very slick, carefully scripted, choreographed and staged affair to minutest detail.
  14. Constitutional Conventions are like exploratory surgery. The procedure can easily kill the patient...
  15. You can have more than one. I'll even drive you home!
  16. ...ain't the Wire a treat? Belly up to the bar here in the Saloon where your drinks are on me.
