  1. Well, I wanted a second Glock 34, but it was 4th on my list right now. Since July I have had a “be on the lookout” list of 4 guns at my LGS. On my list I had: Ruger Redhawk 5050 .45 Colt / .45 ACP Ruger Redhawk 5059 8-shot .357 Magnum Ruger Blackhawk.45 Convertible Glock 34 Gen 3 (we can only get Gen 3s n CA) Anyway, I have wanted a 2nd G34 for some time and in a few days I will have a mate for one of my favorite handguns. I did want one of the revolvers first, but I am very happy to get the Glock. It has surprised me that Ruger revolvers have been so hard to get. I think the only reason the Glock was available is because my LGS had some guns in reserve and perhaps threw me a bone for my weekly diligence in coming in to check on my list of desired handguns. I am looking forward to bringing my new gun home Nov. 2nd. The kicker for me - I have a great local gun store - was these guys list the Glock 34 at $615 on line. It’s below the price other stores charge here for that model. The Asst Manager apologized a couple of times for having to charge me $680. People here are price gouging the heck out of guns right now. What guns or accessories have you been hoping to get but can’t because of gun and ammo scarcity right now?
  2. Here’s a funny one: For our friends in Alaska: Hilarious...though I believe they’re missing something very important:
  3. Apple actually put a Calendar notice on my iPhone for "Shootout at the OK Corral". I thought that was rather interesting.
  4. I have liked the Talking Heads since I discovered them in the early 80's on MTV.
  5. I would bet he is now a Third Class Petty Officer and he is very adept in polishing s#!t cans.
  6. A housewife takes a lover during the day, while her husband is at work. Not aware that 9 year old son was hiding in the closet. Her husband came home unexpectedly, so she hid her lover in the closet.The boy now has company. Boy: “Dark in here.” Man: “Yes it is.” Boy: “I have a baseball.” Man: “That’s nice.” Boy: “Want to buy it?” Man: “No, thanks.” Boy: “My dad’s outside.” Man: “OK, how much?” Boy: “$250.”In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the mom’s lover are in the closet together.Boy: “Dark in here.” Man: “Yes, it is.” Boy: “I have a baseball glove.” Man: “That’s nice.” Boy: “Want to buy it?” Man: “No, thanks.” Boy: “I’ll tell.” Man: “How much?” Boy: “$750.” Man: “Fine.”A few days later, the father says to the boy, “Grab your glove. Let’s go outside and toss the baseball!” The boy says, “I can’t. I sold them.” The father asks, “How much did you sell them for?” The son says, “$1,000.” The father says, “That’s terrible to over-charge your friends like that. That is way more than those two things cost. I’m going to take you to church and make you confess.”They go to church and the father alerts the priest and makes the little boy sit in the confession booth and closes the door.The boy says, “Dark in here.” The priest says, “Don’t start that sh*t again.”
  7. A Buddhist walks up to a hotdog vendor and says, “Make me one with everything.”Everyone chuckles, and the vendor makes the dog. The Buddhist hands him a twenty, the vendor pockets it & moves on to the next customer. The Buddhist complains, “Hey where’s my change.” And the Vendor replies, “Ah, change comes from within.”
  8. Using this as a format for a happy marriage may result n you meeting many new folks. Most of them will work at the law firm you'll be hiring once your wife figures out that you're a BS'r and a sneaky SOB.
  9. Thanks Hardpan. These sound appropriate too. I say that because if you have a horn that sounds like a Cadillac horn of old (for example), people kind of expect to see a Cadillac. It won’t register that a Miata with a Cadillac horn is the car that might be blowing the horn. An example of this for me is the horns Honda installs on their Gold Wing. It sounds like a car horn, almost like an old Caddy horn. Several people I have talked to that own Gold Wings have said that the horn gets people’s attention but confuses them and often the person proceeds with what they were doing that warranted the Horn in the first place.
  10. I used to have one of those Zombie lowers. Got tired of fielding questions about it and sold it. I have always wanted one that said: “Shouldn’t Fire”, “Might Fire” and No third position. Can’t have full auto so why bother?
  11. I intend to play Cowboy this quarter. It probably won’t happen, but I have good intentions.
  12. Raising my fist to the sky, I roared, "It's not how many times you fall down, it's how many times you get back up!" "Sir, that’s not how field sobriety tests work." the cop replied.
  13. After a terrible shipwreck, a man found himself alone on an island. He went about the island in search of food and shelter. After a long walk, the man froze in terror as he saw a tribe of cannibals in the middle of a celebration... The man thought to himself, "I’m so screwed!" To his surprise, a bright light came from the heavens and a deep voice said to him "Not yet my son, listen very carefully: what you have to do is; run up to the chief of the tribe, kick him in the nuts, and take his spear. As soon as you take his spear, kill his only son with it." Without thinking twice, the man did as he was told. As he put the spear through the young cannibal's heart, the bright light appeared again and the deep voice said to him, "Now you’re screwed."
  14. I joked with my wife that I needed 2 Pit Bulls for Emotional Support animals. She said “Why two?” ”One to hold the SOB down while the other works on easing my stress through physical manipulation of my problem.”
  15. I seem to recall this on my one and only Rossi as well. Question, are you sure that is a Rossi part? I only ask because I found myself with an extra Winchester 94 band that looked very much nicer than my Rossi band so I tried to see if it would fit. It pretty much looked like what you are explaining that you’re seeing. I never modified the band to make it work.
  16. Now that is the perfect way to spend a few days during this time. I envy you. I hope you have a fantastic time.
  17. Let me start this with a disclaimer: I am not writing this to slam religion or promote anything above religion. This was my perspective as a teenager. Years ago my Dad, an ordained minister without a flock, and my Uncle, a Nazarene minister with a sizable church, and a couple of my Dad’s friends were discussing something in the Bible. My Uncle, who I love dearly and who always tried to include me in any conversation, asked me who or what I thought God was. I was 17 at the time and I had thought a lot about this. In my house I could not watch Sci-Fi or read Sci-Fi. It was forbidden by my Dad, which didn’t matter to me. I watched Sci-Fi when he wasn’t around and read in my room. I often countered religious teachings with possible scientific reasons for things that happened. My Uncle was often fascinated by my take on things and encouraged discussion on them. My Dad did not. He would have made a very good Medieval Priest...Iron Maidens and all... Anyway, back to my Uncle’s question; “Thomas, (he always called me Thomas) who do you think Or what do you God is?” For a split second anxiety arose in me as I looked at my Dad. His scowl told me “Boy, shut up and go away.” Then I decided to pose my theories. “Well, since you asked...” I went on to posit that God was not a single entity but an alien race or races. They used DNA manipulation to create modern man from Cro Magnon man. In their early studies they decided to seed the men they created or races they created with “religion” to give them guidance so as not to have their creation wipe themselves out. I explained the miracles of the Old and New Testaments as scientific proposals; The burning bush - electronic communications device, probably a small landing craft. The Battle of Jericho - a beam shot from outer space that caused a localized earthquake. “God” asked Joshua to march in order for the aliens to have time to get their earthquake generating equipment on line. Angels - aliens with the ability to fly. Fiery chariots - personal spacecraft. Different races came from different experimentation. They were given different religions, different ways of life. The alien experiment was to see what would work best for these beings they created called “humans”. I went on explaining lots of Old Testament events using my scientific, or sci-fi based speculation. Then I came to The New Testament and Jesus. I explained the 30 year gap in the lack of history and writings of Jesus as alien training. The aliens knew that the “old” religions weren’t going to work out as populations exploded. I explained miracles with science based speculation. I explained Jesus rising from the grave and the angels that the people encountered and how they possibly used devices to rejuvenate him. I explained the Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu religions. I explained the culture American Indians and the Indians of Central and South Americas. I explained that perhaps all these culture were formed for the aliens to study our progression to see what culture became dominant. I also speculated that perhaps Earth was nothing more than an alien high school study program for their students to learn biology and how life forms interact and how insects, viruses and bacteria play a part. I literally went in for an hour while my Dad glared at me, my Uncle smiled in fascination and my Dad’s two friends sat open-mouthed listening. They were probably wondering what torture would be wrought upon me for my transgressions and keeping score baffled that I just wouldn’t shut up before I reached punishment critical mass. Finally my Dad had had enough and told me to go to my room “We’ll talk tomorrow”. Code for “Your in deep (crap) boy”. As I walked away my Uncle grabbed my arm and said “God created that imagination of yours.” And then he wished me good night. My Dad never spoke to me about my theories. I think he was at afraid it would cause an even bigger rift between us. I left home shortly after this.
