  1. Nanny Bloomberg is financing the litigation. This includes covering judgements when the winning defendants are awarded litigation fees. The same applies to municipalities that defy state preemption laws.
  2. Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke is less Mexican than "Pocahontus" is a native American. His gesticulation is so violent that I can't watch him speak for more than 60 seconds before my head hurts.
  3. The C7A was the aircraft both fixed wing & rotary that I traveled by in RVN. I still can hear & feel the ruble of the twin wasp engines on takeoff. With full flaps there was almost zero clearance with the fuselage; so, there was loud rattling. Not the most reassuring sound the 1st time riding one.
  4. We were able to acquire some of the chemicals via mail order & also would ride our tenspeeds a few miles south to Berzerkley to a laboratory supply house sold lab apparatus & chemicals retail.
  5. When I was a teenager, I & my best friend were amateur pyro technicians. We made several batches for black powder but found that mixtures of powdered magnesium or aluminum mixed with potassium nitrate, sodium nitrate or potassium permanganate were better rocket propellants. We also experimented with duplex propellants & accidently discovered "Spit Powder". Our experimentation ended when my friend received 2nd degree burns on his chest when Spit Powder in a closed container he was carrying in his shirt pocket spontaneously combusted.
  6. Does CO have initiative, referendum & recall? You do. I remember that two of three legislators were recalled for voting for your UBC & high cap magazine ban. I can't imagine that the death penalty is any less popular in CO than it is in the PRK. I am against the State taking a life except in self defense; so, when I was a resident of the PRK (before 2013) I always voted in the minority it was on the ballot. The way things have gone in CA since the penalty was reinstated after Rose Byrd & company were recalled & replaced on the state supreme court, CA has had a defacto ban. Gavin Nuisance must still have plans to be POTUS; otherwise, why didn't he commute all the death row inmates to life wo/parole.
  7. You beat me to it! If it was a Colt Walker you could say it was a 44 magnum equivalent.
  8. If you do don't walk into Walmart if you don't want your picture wearing yoga pants to wind up in the peopleofwalmart website.
  9. White Front, I remember two of their stores; one in Oakland & one in El Cerrito. The chain went tango uniform a few years after your purchase. My 1st firearm was Remington 1100 that was a Christmas gift from misses JD in the late 70's. My 1st purchase was a S&W model 66 in 1996. While I hunted dove with a 2nd cousin as a teenager as well as 22 rifles as a Boy Scout; my parents didn't want firearms in the house. The 1100 gift was so I could hunt upland game birds & waterfowl with close friends.
  10. I have the 2nd generation Lee hand primer & I believe the shell holders aren't the same as the press shell holders. I find that after a while that my thumb is very sore. I looked at the Ergo Prime & it doesn't look like it will allow priming significanly more cases before the pain is unbearable. I believe that a hand primer that used a gripping motion would be best ergonomically. I bought a Lee bench prime & mounted it on a board to prime while sitting in a comfortable chair watching TV.
  11. Use DuckDuckGo as your search engine. No tracking so you don't get popup adds shrinking the usable are of your screen. They aren't big lefties like the people who run Google. I removed Chrome from all my devices & set DuckDuckGo as Internet Explorer & Firefox home page.
  12. A brick with a parachute. I still remember for watching choppers practicing auto rotating at the Cu Chi airfield in 1970. An important skill to master if you were a helicopter pilot in the RVN. A mfg's rep I dealt with for 30+ years was a Huey crew chief in VN and had 3 Hueys shot down. At least one controlled crash landing was severe enough for him to have lasting back issues.
  13. I found a Forgotten Weapons video shooting a Model 8 in 300 Savage in a 2 gun competition. In a comment the author states he was using M14 stripper clips. "The Remingtons did have their own clips, but I found that M14 clips worked fine, so that’s what I used." www.forgottenweapons.com/2-gun-action-with-a-remington-model-8-video/
  14. If helicopters defy nature and fly then a tug boat employing a Voith Schnieder cycloidal propulsion is a miracale. Visualize a helicopter's rotor recessed into the boat's hull with the blades folded 90 degrees parallel to the axis of rotation. The advantage of this propulsion system is the the direction of thrust can change instantly. They are used for ship assist service; because, of their maneuverability.
  15. My sentiments also. If your going to make fruity drinks like Margaritas it is a waste to use top shelf liquor. The most interesting Margaritas I have ever had was made by the caretaker of a villa that we & 3 other couples rented in Cabo San Lucas in the 90's. Instead of triplesec he used an indigenous to Baja California state liquor made from a native plant. It is called liquor de damiana. It comes in a bottle shaped like a headless Buda. I only found the stuff at Bevmo when I lived in Brentwood CA (not OJ's).
