  1. They have an F 117 on display at Davis Monthan here in Tucson, too.
  2. Because if they actually won their war we'd stop sending them money?
  3. But wait! They're redoing "Twister"! The only thing that makes it look mildly interesting is it stars Glen Powell. And I'll still almost assuredly wait until it's on HBO and such.
  4. Went into the store for a 6 pack to celebrate.
  5. You shouldn't HAVE to read about it. Weren't you there?
  6. The biggest problem I have with the telling, retelling, and retelling AGAIN, is that each time it's told, whoever is telling it is telling it the way HE, (or SHE), wants to tell it. I've loved superheros, Science Fiction, and Westerns since I was a kid. The 1977 Superman with Christopher Reeves was told very much the way the story was originally written. The Superman and Lois TV show was similar. But now, even in the comics, they keep changing the story for a more modern" audience. Well guess what, these stories has been around for most of a century because the audience LIKED the way they were written. It's the same way with Star Trek, Star Wars, and many more. As far as I was concerned, J.J. Abrams came close to killing Star Trek because he told it the way HE wanted to tell it, not the way Gene Roddenberry WROTE it. The Disney Grooming group is killing Star Wars, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Indiana Jones because they want to tell the stories THEIR way, not the way they were written. I don't know how this Superman movie will tell his story. But if it's not told the way Superman was written, I'll not be seeing it.
  7. Once again I find myself in agreement with Alpo. If I have to shoot someone, I want them to stop doing whatever they are doing that forced me to shoot them, and I DON'T want them able to come after me at a later date either physically OR legally. And if I shoot, it is because I had no choice but to do so.
  8. From Breitbart: ‘Horizon: An American Saga Chapter 1’ Review — Kevin Costner Delivers an Ambitious Western Epic This reporter loved it. https://www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2024/06/26/horizon-an-american-saga-chapter-1-review-kevin-costner-delivers-an-ambitious-western-epic/
  9. If I remember right, they actually released it twice. The first time about a year earlier than the poster shows. For some reason it didn't go anywhere the first time, but when released a year later became a hit. I saw it in the theater both times.
  10. My wife and I have different mattresses on the same bed. We both have Twin mattresses, so it works like a King size bed. Now be being a Fat Guy, my mattress wears out after only a few years, it gets a big dent right where my butt goes, which causes me more hip pain than normal. I recently got myself one of those "Bed in a Box" mattresses, and I have to say I like it much better than a conventional mattress. For well under $100, I can replace it cheaply enough. It's firm yet comfortable. It seems to have more even support, but is still flexible enough to move with me.
  11. The Original Ten Rules for dating my Daughter: Rule One: If you pull into my driveway and honk you’d better be delivering a package, because you’re sure not picking anything up. Rule Two: You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter’s body, I will remove them. Rule Three: I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips. Please don’t take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: you may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object. However, in order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during the course of your date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist. Rule Four: I’m sure you’ve been told that in today’s world, sex without utilizing a “barrier method” of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate: When it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you. Rule Five: In order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is “early.” Rule Six: I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make you cry. Rule Seven: As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process that can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead of just standing there, why don’t you do something useful, like change the oil in my car? Rule Eight: The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter: Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool. Places where there are no parents, policemen, or nuns within eyesight. Places where there is darkness. Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness. Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to induce my daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or anything other than overalls, a sweater, and goose down parka zipped up to her throat. Movies with a strong romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided; movies which feature chain saws are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are better. Rule Nine: Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a potbellied, balding, middle-aged, dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless god of your universe. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind the house. Do not trifle with me. Rule Ten: Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the sound of your car in the driveway for a chopper coming in over a rice paddy outside of Hanoi. When my Agent Orange starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home. As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit your car with both hands in plain sight, speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home safely and early, then return to your car. There is no need for you to come inside. The camouflaged face at the window is mine. Now go, and have a nice time…
  12. Hopefully they will be Round Trip and not just One Way.
  13. A friend of mind had one like that and it wouldn't work. But we'll see if that's where he goes.
  14. I'm pretty sure that the forend on this gun would interfere with a Side Saddle. He'd have to get a "corn cob" style to clear it. Notice how far back on the receiver it sits when cocked. Of course, there's nothing that says he couldn't replace it as well as the shoulder stock with a M4 type stock IF he wanted to...
  15. Based on the title I WAS going to ask what they were using for bait.
  16. I have two, and I think that you'll be happy with it. Features I like are the position of the safety being under your thumb, and the slide release being behind the trigger guard where you can operate with the third finger of your firing hand without moving it from the action. I find both to be more ergonomic than the Remington. I also like that the magazine tube holds 5 as opposed to Remington's 4. There as many aftermarket parts for the Mossberg as the Remington. There are probably a couple dozen barrels available, and they replace a bit easier than Remingtons. A friend of mine had a Remington, while I had my Mossberg. We were out poking holes in the desert once when he mentioned that he kept having trouble cycling the action. I observed that he was using low brass shells, so I loaded it with some high brass shells I happened to have. It cycled flawlessly with them. I don't know if this was just his gun that was particular, of if it is something that all Remingtons are prone to. Oh yeah, a while back the U.S. Marines traded their Remingtons for Mossbergs.
  17. Perhaps "bore" was the wrong word. Rechamber the .357 chambers to .357Sig so the cartridge headspaces on the shoulder, and use the 10mm clips to allow the ejector star to extract the casings.
  18. Oh I'm positive that we're not going around this circuit again. To many negative memories. I'll just blow a fuse.
  19. Maybe if you're using Doordash or some such. But if ordering from Dominos or Pizza Hut, for instance, the driver works for them.
