  1. There's also a nice article in the latest American Rifleman concerning the shortage. BS
  2. After you grab that bucket of steam, don't forget that the Navy has two sets of Chiefs. Chief Petty Officer and Chief Warrant Officer. I've had to look for the bucket of steam and been lucky enough to have been both of the Chief ranks. Preferred being a Chief Petty Officer. BS
  3. A Spruance class destroyer was listed at 30+ knots. The + was classified. During a search and rescue operation off the Oregon coast we were doing an impressive amount over the 30. Oh the good old days. BS
  4. Fireplaces are not that efficient. If I were going from scratch, I'd get a free standing stove. Just my thoughts, BS
  5. There are times when it is better to pay a little more and have them in hand, than to cry about that extra cost and run out after a few months. I put a few of these CCIs on order. If everything blows over in a few months then I will look foolish. There are predictions that the shortage could run to the end of summer or later. If so, I will still be shooting. Stay safe, BS
  6. Either buy a chunk for yourself or go in with someone and buy at least 3k. The hazmat and shipping costs are pretty flat rate, so you're spreading those fees over multiple orders. It helps a little. BS
  7. I don't know if the person wanted to use your ROA for personal use or was going to try to flip it on Gunbroker. Fixed sight ROAs are going for around $1200 - $1500 on Gunbroker. Crazy prices, but people are buying. What a world, BS
  8. That's why the last time I ordered some I bought 3k. Shipping and hazardous are pretty much a flat fee (up to 50 lbs) so it makes it seem a little cheaper. BS
  9. I believe a pair of 3.75", .45, with birdshead grips just went on consignment at Thunderstick Trading Co., (520) 290-8599. Talk with Sandy. Not my guns. Take care, BS
  10. Got it on the list for next year. BS
  11. Rafe,

    We could meet up at Thunderstick to make the exchange or whatever else works.  Trizzlee and I are going to shoot with the Dusty Bunch this weekend.

    Give me a call.  (c) 971-5205

  12. I think the OP was asking how many active members there are total. Apparently there used to be 18,500. What's the number today, higher or lower. BS
  13. Did you call base security for their current policy? The AF base I frequent currently requires firearm unloaded with ammo in one area and handgun in another. It might be worth a call, BS
  14. As noted by many above, depends on what for. Concealed carry: 45 acp in a single stack semi-auto or .380 single stack semi-auto. CAS: 38-40, 44 Russian, 44 special, & sometimes 45 LC. To make an impression: 44 magnum in 8 3/8" S&W mdl 29 in a Dirty Harry holster. That is of course IF I had any of those firearms. BS
  15. Slick, I'll take 1,000. PM to follow. BS
  16. Last years resolution was to not buy any more guns. That lasted almost two days. This year my resolution is to retire on 1 October. The light is on at the end of the tunnel. Let's hope it's not a train! BS
  17. I only have 2 S&W wheel guns. A 642 lightweight and a 29-2 with 8 3/8" barrel, scrolled cylinder, and matching S&W shoulder holster (think Dirty Harry). 586 or 686 has been on my wish list. BS
  18. My wife surprised me with a Ruger Model 77 in .270. It and a twin in .280 were at the local gun shop. Too Tall Bob bought the 280 but I drug my feet on the 270 and it disappeared from the rack. Friday we went shooting. I had my 45-70s and TTB had his 280 (I thought). He had me try out the "280" first. The target said Merry Christmas Al around the edge. After a couple of shots everyone has this sh**y smile. I'm a little thick sometimes, I finally picked up the ammo box and it was 270! Quite a surprise. BS
  19. "Rank" is reserved for officers. Enlisted Navy members have their paygrade and rating (specialty). The rating badge is only shown on dress uniforms. BS
  20. We had to go from a queen to a king because our lab slept cross ways on the bed. We've a smaller dog now, but she still gets 1/3 of the bed. BS

    I'm still looking for the requirement for all Range Officers to be ROI at state matches and above. I'm not trying to be argumentative, I'm thick headed and like to read the black and white. The Match Directors guide recommends that the range officers be ROI or ROII. Edits 1 & 2: Found it. It is in the actual contract with SASS. Verbage in the Match Directors guide should be changed to correspond with the contract or change the wording in the contract to be more realistic. By this I mean require the MD, PMs, Match ROs, TOs to have certain certification (be it ROI or ROII). Spot
  22. If, by positioning the slide over the SG loops, it causes the slide to be "wedged" out from your body I believe it would be illegal.Reading the SHB I find that it is illegal to have a SG slide over SG loops. Is there any reason to assume that a pistol/rifle slide over SG loops would be legal? BS
