  1. Don't want the moderators after me. Although part of me still thinks this is a hoax.
  2. Wonder if the coyote would consider castration more humane than a bullet? IMNSHO the stresses associated with capture, transportation, castration are not what I would consider humane.
  3. Bombs dropping on US cities or the Panama Canal would have likely diverted US assets and had a detrimental effect on moral. Sometimes the psychological impact far outweighs the strategic one. Doolittle's raid on mainland Japan is a good example, The bombs themselves it caused no strategic damage but had a significant impact to moral on both sides. It also forced a change in how Japan deployed its forces.
  4. Le génie humain a des bornes, Mais la sottise n’en a pas.
  5. Shotgun buttstock goes against the shoulder like you are probably used to. A crescent buttstock actually gets mounted to your extreme upper arm right at the joint. The Toe of the buttstock (Lower point) goes into your armpit and not against your chest. A dozen rounds is not too bad. Shooting close to 100 is a different story.
  6. Had they been successful they could have caused some real havoc. Doubt they would have changed the outcome of the war but they might have prolonged it.
  7. Were it not for the 15 min rule on GB, you would see the sniping crap that occurs on Ebay. I for one like that feature on GB. I too place my Max and let the system do its thing. It is fun to watch the snipers try to out bid me.
  8. Do yourself and those next to you a huge favor and have the SG checked to be sure it is safe to shoot ORIGINAL BP loads in. If the smith proves it safe then ONLY shoot it with real BP. Smokeless powder has a completely different pressure curve and should never be used in firearms not designed for smokeless. Definitely do not use substitutes in it as some are hotter than real BP and could over pressure the barrel. Metalurgy was hit or miss prior to the early 1900s. You could be holding a ticking time bomb in your hands. For clarification: 1887 was released in both 10 and 12 ga BP only. Model 1901 was released in 10 ga for use with early smokeless shells. 12 ga Model 1901 was never released.
  9. Which ever you buy be sure it has a shotgun style buttstock and not a crescent. The Crescent may look cool but it can be brutal. Lots of good info here www.BPCR.net I made a mistake and did not realize there were two different shooting disciplines. Link to the correct discipline rule book NRA Rifle Silhouette Rules. Section 3 covers Equipment. 3.4 is BPCR Original link is to the NRA Black Powder target Rifle Rules
  10. Why problems were you having with your Rugers?
  11. From National Geographic online. Why Cats Poop on Your Bed and Other Odd Pet Behaviors Has this ever happened to you??? It has never happened to me because I don't own a cat.
  12. You sir got bilked for $20.00. Only time a TPMS stem has to be replaced is if it is inoperative per an NTSB mandate.
  13. Noon Saturday it was 72 by 7 PM it was 32. This morning it was 18 with the wind chill hovering just above 0. By Twin Cities standards those temps would be a heat wave but here in North TX it is a mite chilly
  14. Late 90s Chrysler Town and Country with a V6 that required the same thing to gain access to one Spark plug. The other 5 were accessible. We bought the van used with all the service records. No issues till we moved out of state then started having engine trouble. Took it to a mechanic and when they removed the back center sparkplug they found electrode had been worn down so far that it was recessed a half an inch into the plug body. The other 5 had normal wear. They theorized the plug hadn't been changes since the car was new. Only cost us $300.00 to find that out.
  15. Gorilla Tape. Gets them all with only one application.
  16. Wonder what Mr. Ely would think of flight operations today?
  17. Link is for count down until election. Being as the election is over the counter is counting the time since the election. Out of office counter is here. http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?p0=263&iso=20170120T00&msg=Time%20left%20until%20Obama%20leaves%20office
  18. I have had good luck with Amazon Prime Storage. It is free if you have a Prime account.
  19. +10 :D After we got married and got our first dog I didn't want him sleeping in the bed. Lost that battle the first night. Knew when I was licked and it has been a nightly occurrence now for 29 years. Currently have two papillons, until I come to bed they claim my side. One moves as soon as I come into the room. The other demands a good scratching before he will move. For the most part, they both prefer the bunkhouse bosses side of the bed but occasionally one will lay beside me.
  20. Where are you located? May be a good smith closer than you think.
