  1. Wait until all-electric vehicles become mandatory and see what it does to the power grid then. There will also be people calling work saying they can't make it in today because their car is down to 5% battery.
  2. You know how the most commonly-used buttons usually stop working on a remote? I'll bet in two years the very bottom one will the only one still functional.
  3. It's currently fashionable for a lot of young people to actually raise their voice at the end of a sentence. It REALLY irritates me. Apparently they do so because they think it sounds less condescending when they talk to others.
  4. In Michael Drejka's case, also remember that he chose to put himself in a confrontational position when he decided to yell at the man's girlfriend for parking in the wrong spot. The jury didn't appreciate the fact that he was playing traffic cop, and simply getting shoved to the ground for doing something you shouldn't be doing in the first place doesn't justify shooting someone over it. In all self defense cases, the jury is going to be interested in knowing what you did to precipitate the incident and what you tried to do to either avoid or de-escalate it. If you choose to get in
  5. Well, we all watched the George Zimmerman case. He's in FL and went up against an unarmed man. He wasn't even charged with anything until the public caught wind of it and people started calling for his head on a platter. As a result the overzealous prosecutor decided to charge him with 2nd degree murder, which was pretty hard to prove given the circumstances. Sure enough he got off, but I think he was a pretty good example of a grey area situation. Yes he was getting his ass handed to him, but he also pursued his antagonist in the first place. He also was into boxing and was of similar size, s
  6. You would probably have to show that you had reason to be in fear of your life. If a 20yo in top physical condition knocks you on the ground and starts pummeling you, how badly do you think he has to injure you before you're justified? It only takes one good punch that causes your head to slam against the concrete to put you out of commission for good.
  7. If Pee-Wee Herman or Woody Allen is railing on me, sure. But if the dude outweighs me by at least 50 pounds just his fists alone can cause serious bodily injury, and if he knocks me unconscious and finds my firearm I probably won't be waking up. If you're in a fistfight that you started or willingly engaged in that's one thing, but if somebody attacks you without provocation and you're getting beat to hell that's grounds for using deadly force.
  8. Well, in another5-10 years we'll all be saying "remember when Walmart sold guns & ammo?". First they stopped selling handguns, then EBR's and their ammo... and eventually I bet they'll pull the plug altogether.
  9. Remember when Sears and JCPenney sold guns? I still have a cranky old .22 my dad bought for me from JCP back in the 1980s.
  10. I found an extra 50-round box of 9mm ammo I didn't know I had. Does that count?
  11. I've worked for husband-wife owners before. Each one was convinced that they were my actual boss. Neither one ever gave me the same orders. Wouldn't do that again.
  12. Remember when we were all 8 years old and it seemed to take five years to get from Halloween to Christmas? Now we're all adults. Just FYI there are only 234 more shopping days until Christmas.
  13. As far as modern guns go, avoid disassembling the slide on a Kahr. Very difficult to do without some very small, spring-loaded parts flying out and getting lost. I eventually figured out a few tricks and even fabricated a couple of special tools to make the job easier, but unless you like having to order new parts all the time don't do it. In the same vein as my fiasco from last weekend, I once lost the striker spring to my Kahr in the garage. It flew out during disassembly, and it shot out into the Great Void. I thought I heard approximately where it landed, and I got out my ladde
  14. Seriously, every modern home must have a worm hole or something that leads to an alternate universe of sorts. A couple months ago I was headed to the range and threw my container holding my fancy ear plugs into my range bag. When I got there they were missing. After I came back home I searched everywhere, but I never found them. I have absolutely no friggin' clue how they managed to just vanish from the Earth like that. .
  15. The folks who will be disappointed are the ones who expect that anything without a forged receiver is junk. I doubt the new Ruglins will be forged. Yes they can make cast receivers that hold up just as well as a forged one, but tell that to the purists.
  16. Did you happen to sell it to a pawn shop in WA state? I always wanted a Nylon 66 and found one, but the first time I shot it the thing jammed constantly. I took it apart and discovered several internal parts literally taped in place! The last owner took it apart and couldn't figure out how to put it back together, and simply sold the hot mess to the shop where I bought it from. Fortunately I found some reference materials online and got it put back together properly. And yes, it's never coming apart again. BTW I can also attest to the Colt Pocket Hammerless. I took one apart once a
  17. Hopefully the new Ruglins won't have a barrel stamped "READ ALL WARNINGS IN INSTRUCTION MANUAL AVAILABLE FREE FROM RUGER OR MARLIN. OBEY ALL SAFETY RULES AND LAWS PERTAINING TO FIREARMS. ALWAYS USE RECOMMENDED AMMUNITION. NEVER POINT THIS GUN AT ANYONE. CAPABLE OF FIRING WITH MAGAZINE REMOVED (NOT THAT THIS MODEL HAS ONE). LOVE YOUR MOTHER. AS A MATTER OF FACT DON'T EVEN BUY THIS FIREARM. YOU MIGHT SHOOT YOURSELF IN THE FOOT ANYWAY AND SUE US."
  18. Those are probably the two that will NEVER come back. The Camp Carbine wold directly compete with the Ruger PC Carbine and the 39A is too costly to make in a world full of pot-metal Henrys. (no offense to the .22 Henry, as I have one myself) I do hope however that they bring back the Model 60 soon... with the original long barrel and hi-cap mag tube.
  19. Most gun shows near me are held by the WA Arms Collectors Assn, and you have to be a member to set up a table there or buy a firearm. The general public can only buy ammo and accessories. The good thing is that it weeds out a lot of the trash vendors and paranoid/white racist/screw-the-ATF types. The bad thing is that it doesn't help make the tables any more interesting. The nice guns are often traded between table vendors before the show even opens on a Saturday morning, and by noon what's left is usually just Hi-Points, Taurus, and various broken/refinished/misrepresented guns, along with fa
  20. My dad taught me how to hold a flashlight... that's about it.
  21. I half expected it to magically show up in the middle of the floor right after I finished making the replacement. I'll just order one the next time I need to place a big order with Gun Parts Corp. "So at the end of tomorrow, please post which was the better day. I'll bet it was today." No bets. A lost screw beats an office full of coworkers with a screw loose.
  22. ... but they forgot to mention sometimes it leaves you just as frustrated. Yesterday I took my 1851 Navy out in the woods to do some shootin'. Just three cylinders into it suddenly the hammer would not stay cocked. I fumbled around with it, but I couldn't get it resolved and assumed something must've broken. So I had to end the shooting session right then and there and come home. I took it apart, and found I had the Mother of all Cap Jams. One got stuck deep inside the action between the hammer and trigger. So I removed it, cleaned the revolver, and upon reassembly the action still
  23. Asian stores actually sell "trainer" chopsticks for kids that are made like that.
  24. Now they've got giant flying crocodiles landing in peoples' boats: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/13-foot-long-crocodile-jumps-into-fisherman-s-boat-in-incredibly-rare-attack/ar-BB1gejSi?li=BBorjTa Of course if you want to improve your chances of seeing one of these things it helps to cook a nice smelly meal right inside your boat in the middle of a croc-infested river. They say the authorities are now looking for the crocodile. It always infuriates me when they go looking for an animal like that afterwards just to kill it. The thing was only guilty o
