  1. That's why the last owners moved out!! (there is more than one!!)
  2. Stock guns have to shoot stock ammo!! Works for me!!
  3. Yep .. there are a lot of folks on this forum that think they are brilliant military strategists/experts. They keep telling us all the time ... sigh ...
  4. Here ... you must have run out!! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PMQB7Q6?SubscriptionId=AKIAINII3XBB4YWNS5LQ&ascsubtag=179647583-16-&linkCode=osi&psc=1&tag=cps_popups-20&th=1
  5. I broke many driver's side windows on my '49 Chevy Fleetline ... Fortunately ... none of the drive-in speakers were ever damaged. Replacement windows cost $17 (a lot back then).
  6. Oops!! They aren't accepting "homemade" guns ... so I guess that means they aren't paying off for "Ghost Guns".
  7. With a little technique practice you could be very fast ... Otherwise ... here is one of the many threads addressing this problem ...
  8. The photo shows an Israeli-made Ameda rifle that the FSCN gave him a few days after the triumph of the Sandinista Revolution ... +61 ish ??. The most important thing was the US tribute song that came out a few years later too ... (Bay of Pigs) - Sam and Dave - "Hold on Im Comin"
  9. He was probably after the "wallabies" (reported from Cleveland yesterday) ...
  10. I have to take my bank book in so they can update the interest ... (stamp it in the book).
  11. You need to put your excess "bank" balance in a "High Yield Savings Account". I use AMEX and it is paying 1.5% right now. There are lots of them and all easy to set up and maintain. Soooo … instead of getting 15 or 20 cents interest every month from Wells Fargo I get $100+. Once you set up the account you simply transfer excess funds from your regular savings account to the high yield account … If you need some bucks back you transfer what you want back. No fees or anything … transfers usually complete in 2-3 business days. We still have a checking account but instead of leaving a "large" balance in it's associated "bank account" we transfer off anything beyond what we would consider emergency funds. If you want bigger bucks and can wait 15 months to get your money back then do "I Bonds" … ($10K per year limit). IMHO ...
  12. I assume you are aware that SmartCast and ChromeCast do the same thing. With ChromeCast you need to plug a ChromeCast device into an HDMI port on your TV or whatever. SmartCast does what ChromeCast does but does not need the plug-in. A SmartCast Vizio will show up as a "cast" device just like a ChromeCast receiver.
  13. I found a review over on Amazon for this timer (ProTimer BT) ... seems someone already used a bunch of them for a CAS match. Sounds like the sensitivity would be a boon for dryfire too. Also found them for sale @ $135 over at Ben Stoeger https://benstoegerproshop.com/competition-electronics-pro-timer-w-bluetooth-shot-timer/
  14. Or just bring a dog that will bite the shooter w/ the beep goes off!!
  15. You're "supposed" to tap the shoulder ... count to three and "then" press the button!!
  16. There "is a volume adjustment" ... but if it "isn't" enough ... then ...
  17. Can you use assign the input port you are using for your VCR instead of "last used"?? That would hard lock it to open on that particular port. Good choice on the "data collection" thing ... If you leave that on then every Sunday morning it goes back to default (don't ask me how I found that out!!).
  18. Hey!! Check this out ... >> quote << "If there is no menu on your Vizio remote, then you probably have an older version remote. To pull up the menu on older Vizio remotes, you need to hold down the ‘Input’ and ‘Volume Down’ buttons together." >> end quote << https://robotpoweredhome.com/no-menu-button-on-vizio-remote/
  19. Wow ... well that sucks. You are going to have to figure out how to get into setup w/ your remote. Then ... Watch this video ... (important stuf start around 3:23) ...
  20. Well .. I don't know what your remote looks like ... but ... if you get into "setup" then the option you want to change is under "System". If you can't get into setup w/ the Vizio remote then that is a real problem indeed. The "menu" button on this one is on the upper right side by the "OK" button.
  21. Yeah ... this started after the last update. Anyhow ... by default (after the last update) you are powering up to SmartCast ... If you take your remote and push "Menu" ... a list of "Settings" will appear on the left side of the screen ... If you look under "System" you will find a setting for "Input on Power Up" (or something similar). Your's still has "SmartCast" in there. You can select the "input" you want to use on Power Up ... I have "Direct TV" so I use the HDMI input port for Direct TV on mine. You can select "SmartCast" or any "physical" input you desire. Some people just use the things on "SmartCast" all the time ... If they are "casting" stuff to the set from their phone or computer that is where it will end up anyhow ... plus there are free TV Apps in there and such. If an input was selected for Power Up that didn't have anything on it ... the set would simply boot up and say "No Input" on a blank screen. I guess they thought the "SmartCast" default was better than just a blank screen.
