  1. Glad you're taking care of your Mom. Your sister needs something special....rhymes with flap.
  2. It’s obvious from that video the guy is not doing tritium sights with it. That amount of force could break a vial in the sight. That spring punch looks just like a modified Blue Point punch. I have a set of those that I bought from Snap-On years ago.
  3. Pretty much sick and tired of this state. Why do all bad things seem to begin with “C”? Cancer Communism California ...and they resemble one another in more ways than one...
  4. A police officer came upon a terrible wreck where the driver and passenger had been killed. As he looked upon the wreckage a little monkey came out of the Bush and hopped around the crashed car. The officer looked down at the monkey and said "I wish you could talk." The monkey looked up at the officer and shook his head up and down. "You can understand what I'm saying?" asked the officer. Again, the monkey shook his head up and down. "Well, did you see this?" "Yes," motioned the monkey. "What happened?" The monkey pretended to have a can in his hand and turned it up by his mouth. "They were drinking?" asked the officer. "Yes," nodded the monkey. "What else?" asked the officer. The monkey pinched his fingers together and held them to his mouth, sucking inward quickly. "They were smoking marijuana too?" said the officer. "Yes," nodded the monkey. "What else?" queried the officer. The monkey motioned with his fingers... "Having sex! They were having sex, too!?" asked the astounded officer. "Yes," nodded the monkey. "Now wait, you're saying your owners were drinking, smoking and having sex before they wrecked?" "Yes," the monkey nodded. "What were you doing during all this?" asked the officer. "Driving," motioned the monkey.
  5. Bob, you just reminded me that when I was aboard my ship there was a silver tea serving set assigned to the Officer’s Wardroom. I had to polish it once while on mess duty, but I do not recall it being used. I think it was more for decoration in port. It was always stowed at sea. My ship bobbed like a cork in heavy seas so fragile things had to be stowed.
  6. Whoever discovered this deserves a medal and some serious recognition.
  7. Finagler, I wear boots nearly every day. After a couple of foot surgeries and having metal plates put in my foot I know what you mean about finding comfortable boots. In the past couple of years I have tried Thursday Boots, Bates, Redwings and Thorogood Boots. The most comfortable boots for every day use, for me, have been Bates Tactical Boots (non safety toe). These boots may not be good for wet weather. They are ventilated. I buy the WIDE size even though my foot measures normal. This really helps with comfort. https://www.batesfootwear.com/US/en/8"-tactical-sport-side-zip-boot/077896446441.html?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&adpos=&scid=scplp077896446441&sc_intid=077896446441&gclid=Cj0KCQjw8rT8BRCbARIsALWiOvQp7RBNwBc_fiM_x7uoXq35UJ1UwNV37oGVkhgRFQ3YKqDXShQSWOEaAjibEALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds The other thing that makes a world of difference for me besides comfortable boots is darn good insoles. I have tried dozens of different insoles and these are the very best and they aren't expensive, especially if you mail order them from Walmart. I put these in all my boots aand shoes. https://www.amazon.com/Airplus-Memory-Insoles-Comfort-Relief/dp/B010OLI7RC Much cheaper at Walmart https://www.walmart.com/ip/Ultra-Work-Memory-Plus-Insole/44781802
  8. Tom's of the world must unite against the derogatory use of the name "Tom".
  9. No offense but I do not track things like this. I have a hard enough time keeping track of my own self.
  10. There was once a magician on a cruise ship who performed mainly sleight of hand tricks. He had a regular spot on the ship's cabaret evening entertainment. He was actually quite a good magician, but his routines were regularly ruined by the onboard parrot who would fly around squawking out and giving away his secrets like: "IT'S UP HIS SLEEVE, IT'S UP HIS SLEEVE!" or "IT'S IN HIS POCKET, IT'S IN HIS POCKET!" or "IT'S IN HIS MOUTH, IT'S IN HIS MOUTH!" The magician was getting pretty sick of this and threatened to kill the parrot if it ruined his act one more time. That evening right at the climax of his act, just as he was about to disappear in a puff of smoke, the ship hit an iceberg and sank in seconds. Amazingly, the magician and the parrot were the only two survivors. The magician was lying on a piece of driftwood in a daze. As he opened his eyes he could see the parrot staring at him out of its beady little eyes. The parrot sat there for hours just staring at him and eventually said, "OK, I give up, what did you do with the ship?"
  11. Being a "Tom" let me be clear about the name Tom or Thomas. Some of the best people I know are named Tom. Thomas means "Twin" or "Leader" in Aramaic. In Semitic and Greek languages it means "Twin". Famous Toms: Thomas, the Apostle Thomas Aquinas Thomas Jefferson Woodrow Wilson - Given name Thomas Thomas Edison TS Elliot Sean Connery, given name Thomas Here are a few more: https://playback.fm/people/first-name/thomas https://www.ranker.com/list/famous-people-named-tom/celebrity-lists https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_people_with_given_name_Thomas
  12. Charlie, Thanks for posting this. I am quite sure I got some evil eyes when I left the Navy and started shooting at ranges and in competitions. I let my hair grow and some folks just couldn't handle the concept of a bearded long haired gun toting guy on their range or in their competitions. Frankly, I didn't care, but others seemed to. Especially when I used to shoot at Tactical Competitions put on by LAPD SWAT officers. Closed mindedness and bias will be the death of our shooting sports and our rights if we do not learn to accept people.
  13. Oh! Now I get it. You have to in the “In crowd” or somehow one is expected just to know these things I guess. Carry on. Don’t mind me.
  14. Long matches are fun. I remember when we used to shoot 10 stage monthly. matches. It can be tiring but well worth it. By the way, Thank you for tracking my countdown. I do appreciate it.
  15. I stopped asking for my records and records transfers when Obama-Care was enacted. If they want my info all in one place they’re going to have to work for it. Since 2008 I have lived at 5 different addresses in 4 different states.
  16. Hmmm....how about if you positively do not want to go on that journey?
  17. That’s the year my daughter was born. I bought a new Mazda B2000 truck for $5,995.
  18. What’s wrong with the stock one?
