    I never thought that Myrna Loy was beautiful, but LORD did she have a beautiful presence.  Very striking.

     

    I just watched The Bachelor And The Bobbysoxer last night. (I never saw it before)  She was quietly great again.

     

    Temple had outgrown her cute little girl days, though, and didn't show me much.

    Personality and sass outweigh looks, in my humble opinion.

    I spent the better part of two hours trying to fit the lifter of a short stroke kit in my 73.  File it down a few strokes, test fit it.  File it down a few more strokes, test fit it.  Did you ever want to grab the dremel tool and go for some serious metal removal?  I resisted temptation.   After I got that fitted, I find the carrier is hitting the bolt as the bolt goes forward.  Do a little light filing and burr removal on the carrier.   There was a lot of light filing and test fitting.  I think I can take the 73 apart and put it back together with my eyes closed or in my sleep.  The next project is filing the dovetail on the speed sight to fit the dovetail in the barrel.  I think if you want to know a synonym for tedious, it will also include the word, gunsmith.

    I am curious. Why would a “kit” need fitting?

    Some the the hardest work will be when somebody else tried to 'smith' a gun and failed.

    Then YOU get that 'reworked' gun to fix.

     

    Its one thing to fix a factory 'gremlin'.

    Its a totally other ballgame to fix an 'owner induced' gremlin.

    Yep! I bought a brand new KBI Liberty hammered coachgun at an auction to benefit our club. According to the club President the club VP “slicked it up a little bit”.

    The fool £#€$ed up is what he did. I fired it in 1 match for 3 or 4 stages. One of the barrels sometimes misfires…light strikes. It doesn’t lock up tightly. It did the first 10 rounds. 
    It appears it’s the only shotgun in the world that there are no parts available for it. 
    Still pizzes me off. Any Saloonatics want it? Not kidding. 
     

    I bought a Rossi 92 24” octagon barrel .45 Colt from a SASS member in 2016. 
    “It’s had less than a hundred rounds through it. I used it for one match and it’s been sitting in the back of my safe for ten years…Oh, and by the way, I slicked it up a little bit.”

    (I have found those 7 words are usually a precursor to blood pressure enhancement.)

    The gun wasn’t slick. It was sloppy. During operation it sounded like an old automated printing press that was on it’s last legs.

    Some hardware was stripped or cross threaded. Springs too short. Parts too loose. 
    It’s gone. I sold it…after fixing all the (bleep) ups in the gun.

     

    There are 3 things an idiot should stay away from when planning to “fix” something. Scotch, Whiskey and Dremel tools. 
     

    Trouble is, idiots don’t know they’re idiots. 
     

    Oh, and if you’re reading this and you realize “Hey, I sold that gun to Pat Riot!” you would be wise to keep quiet and not respond. I am vindictive.

    Interesting approach -- appears to be a creative way to put stairs where a ladder was intended. The climber would alternate side to side.

     

    Going up wouldn't be so bad, but it seems coming down would take a bit of getting used to.

    And a catcher's cup, just in case you miss a step.:P

    They remind me of ladders (stairs) aboard Navy Vessels…only not with alternating steps.

  5. I gave up on listening, watching, reading pretty much all news except for The Epoch Times. I have their app and receive Headline emails from them. They focus a lot on China as well as US news. 
    I no longer listen to AM talk radio or NPR. I didn’t listen to NPR too often, maybe for short periods once or twice a week up until a couple of years ago. I couldn’t take their “city-head” blather.


    City-Head is a term I came up with working in public transit agencies and working with and interacting with personnel from other public agencies. This included people from other large agencies like New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Houston, Portland, Charlotte and others. These people also work on Federal Agencies that I interacted with regularly. 

    These are people that live and literally spend all their time in cities. Their point of view is completely PC and bears no semblance to the Constitution in any way except the First Amendment. Big Brother is their guide as long as Big Brother acknowledges their collective concerns. Most are book smart, but not really intelligent. 
    Boy, am I getting into the weeds. Enough of that. 

    My bottom line is I got to the point I didn’t trust any news agency. They’re all corrupt to some degree. They ALL have an agenda. I tolerate Epoch Times because I know their agenda. It’s not really about manipulating things in the U.S. It’s more about religious and human rights in China. 

     

    I despise manipulators. I hate them. I mean I truly hate them. I grew up with a small time con-man and manipulator. It was my Dad. I learned from him and his crooked friends all about taking advantage of people and conning money out of them. They were like a pack of American Gypsies. Always scheming. Always. One day after graduating high school but still being underage at 17 I packed my stuff and left. 
    I guess I kind of did the same with mainstream news and television. I watch Amazon, Paramount+ and Netflix. 
    My wife and I drove cross country in my Miata. I am in CA now. Each night the hotel TVs had normal cable channels with 10-12 minutes of a show and 5-6 minutes of commercials. How can anyone watch that crap? I sure can’t.  Thank goodness I have an iPhone and unlimited data. :D

    You don't really expect to get a correct, factual story out of FOX NEWS do ya??  Fat Chance.

    Yep, you’re right. Murdoch made sure key positions are filled by leftists so, yes, their news is biased and inaccurate and untrustworthy in many instances. 
     

    EDIT: You cannot trust any single news source. You need a variety of sources.
