  1. 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.

    If you bore the cylinder 10mm case-size all the way through the freebore is going to allow quite a bit of bullet slop (potentially) before it hits the forcing cone.  


    I would think you would want to bore the chambers so the cartridge headspaces on the shoulder, so the chamber in front of the bullet would be .357, not 10mm.

    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.

    Just remember that the delivery driver is just a person delivering the food from a place of business that he/she has no connection to. Sort of a UBER driver for food. 

    Maybe if you're using Doordash or some such. But if ordering from Dominos or Pizza Hut, for instance, the driver works for them.

  4. Some years ago, not long after Sig introduced the .357Sig, I read in one of the Gun Rags where the author had a Colt Delta Elite in 10mm, and had a 40S&W barrel made for it, then had a .357Sig barrel made for it. Was a very interesting pistol. All three calibers used the same slide and magazines, so all he needed to do was change out the barrel and recoil spring to change caliber. 

    So in an Alpoesque fashion, I got to thinking about what it would take to convert a revolver to shoot .357Sig. Or maybe a N frame ..357 Magnum revolver to .357Sig. 

    Just rebore the .357 Magnum cylinder to .357Sig and whatever else to use the 10mm moon clips from a 10mm revolver? B)

    I know that it wouldn't make much practical sense, but it would be interesting.

  5. Several years ago there was one place that had their drivers carry those credit card slips that they used to run through the slider machine. The driver would take your card, place the slip over it, and rub across the slip with an ink pen. 

    Nowadays though, when I order, (I don't use an app because I DON'T have a smartphone), I order online from my confuser. When I get to the payment window, it's pretty much like ordering from ebay or Amazon. Enter my card info, (only the first time. The site remembers it so that you don't have to enter it every time), and finish your order.

    There's a long discussion on the Smith & Wesson board about whether you should allow people in when they come charging up that empty lane.

    But damn it, you are not going to break line if I have anything to do with it.

    I'm with Alpo on this one. I spent 30 years driving a truck and saw this behavior nearly every day. And it's usually some self important Jackwagon that thinks that since he has an expensive car that he's better than the rest of us. 

    I made more than a few of them stop and wait in my day, and if I hadn't been driving a company truck, would have made a lot more of them.

    I still do it in my Jeep when it seems to be needed to be done. 

    As a side note, when I have the top off especially, I really like it when one of them make a Big Deal about passing me, just to have me catch up to him at the next red light. I'll pull up beside him, clap my hands, and in my best Marine Corps Drill Instructor voice, give him a,

  7. It's 2045 hours here in Tucson, and my wife just called me outside to see something. It was a moving bright light in the Western sky. Moving in a Southeastern direction, leaving a bright contrail. I believe that it was a rocket launch. Maybe SpaceX? Does anybody know if something was being launched?

    If he had shot it he would have blown a hole in his car. It was in the trunk. The guy that was finally going to kill it was going to beat it to death with a stick.

    One time on Camp Lejune we were out in the field, when all of a sudden our Navy Corpsman come running out of the woods. When we finally got him settled down, we asked what he was running from.

    "Well, I saw this snake, so I picked up a tree branch to beat it with, but it turned out that the snake was just another tree branch." he told us.

    "So why are you running like that?" I asked him. 

    "The tree branch I picked up turned out to be a snake!"

    about Calvin Coolidge…

    Both his dry Yankee wit and his frugality with words became legendary. His wife, Grace Goodhue Coolidge, recounted that a young woman sitting next to Coolidge at a dinner party confided to him she had bet she could get at least three words of conversation from him. Without looking at her he quietly retorted, “You lose.”

    When asked why he chose not to run for reelection, he is reported to have said, "No chance for advancement."

  10. We've done Mary Ann or Ginger to death, (Mary Ann). And we've done Jeannie or Samantha, (Jeannie).

    Recently, one of the retro TV channels has been showing "Fall Guy" in a vain attempt to garner interest to the movie. (I think that they should have gotten Chris Pratt to play the part, but he's more one os US than them). Since doing so, I have ,of course, been noticing the gorgeous beauty of Heather Thomas. That leads me to remember the "Heather or Heather" question from the 80s, Heather Thomas or Heather Locklear, from "T.J. Hooker". What say you? I say Heather Thomas.

    Heather Thomas:


    Heather Locklear:


    And NO, you can't say both!

    I think Alpo throws stuff like this out as conversation starters.

    I think that in this case it's more a matter of what's being used, not what's available.

    . Fluffy? Really? :lol:

    I think that the pink ones would suit Alpo best.


    And I'll leave you to guess what these are for:

    When people say they want a single provider  healthcare system from the Fed's just refer them to this fiasco? Private company did it faster, and cheaper.

    Sheeple want single provider healthcare because if the Government is providing it it's free.:wacko:

    Insurance would BE much less expensive if the Government would just stay out of it and let the Free Market control it.B) The customer could choose what he wants and pay for just that. If he chose wrong, he'd have to pay for that too.
