  1. Yes, but it is like being hit by a skunk, it takes a long time after you escape to get the stink out.
  2. I saw the phone number, but for some reason they didn't answer at 10:00 on a Saturday! The college in Oklahoma charges $300 for a 1-week class. Pretty reasonable, the cost of travel/lodging/food would be far more. Doubt if I do it, but an interesting idea.
  3. Living in Hawaii, it was called "Maui Wowi" or "Kona Gold" depending on which island it was grown on. I think the only person that tried to sell me some, said "Hey you want something good?"
  4. The Texas Department of Public Safety will now issue License To Carry for 18 to 20 year-old adults. The Department of Public Safety announced that they will be issuing LTCs to all qualifying adults ages 18 and up. This became possible when Judge Mark Pittman ruled in the North Texas Court of Appeals that it was a violation of the 2nd Amendment to restrict 18 to 20 year-old adults from participating in the same rights as other adults. Multiple lawsuits have been filed against the ATF recently. With Michael Cargill’s win in the Federal Fifth Circuit against the bumpstock bans, more Texans are stepping up to the plate. At least three cases have been filed to challenge the unconstitutional actions by the ATF banning pistol braces on AR15 pistols. A fourth one is soon to be filed by Gun Owners of America. As is normally the case, Texas leads the way for the rest of the nation. In the Texas Legislature, more gun bills have been filed than ever before. As of today, over 100 gun bills have been filed in the Texas House and Senate. GOA Texas is tracking these bills closely. Currently, 84 anti-gun bills have been filed. While they are unlikely to pass, we will keep you updated if they are progressing through the legislative process. Several legislators, including Senator Bob Hall and Representatives Matt Schaefer, Briscoe Cain, Cody Harris, and Jared Patterson are leading the charge on pro-gun bills filed. Please thank these legislators for their 2A support. Last session, the Suppressor Freedom bill was signed into law. We have a bill to include Short Barreled Rifles and Short Barreled Shotguns into that same language. It will give us the legal ability to challenge the ATFs unconstitutional laws that were created in the National Firearms Act of 1934. GOA Texas is asking all citizens to rebuke Senator John Cornyn for breaking his oath to the Constitution multiple times. John Cornyn over the last few years has advocated for anti-gun policies such as red flag laws and more restrictions on firearm purchases. His latest vote for the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act is a slap in the face to Americans. The Act was signed into law by President Joe Biden and forces a delay in rifle and shotgun purchases for 18 to 20 year-old adults.
  5. I used to only use CC for the convenience and the ability to put off paying for 45 days (when interest actually paid something). Now I use almost exclusively cash because I am tired of ALL of my data being sold!
  6. I thought the SliXsok Pistol Case was a little expensive, but I use and like it. SliXsok Pistol Case designed to protect your pistols while traveling (slixprings.com)
  7. This has already created a bit of a controversy at major Matches.
  8. I finished 1st in WRANGLER (out of two) at an annual competition and it didn't meet the "minimums" because the majority of the people there were competing in "Senior" categories. Don't really care, but out of principle there should always be awards for the BASE categories. Not so sure about the Lady award for ages 120-124 that shoots Frontier cartridges in a double duelist fashion with an outlaw shooting stance, but she probably should to just for showing up.
  9. Shoot whatever you want! This sport is one of few that I feel is more for the enjoyment of the sport than the competition (and I am very very competitive at other things).
  10. That was quick, I guess I am dead.
  11. Something that hasn't been mentioned much, was that the AD Dave Halls who pled guilty and is getting no jail time, was already fired from another film set (Freedom’s Path) for a NEGLIGENT discharge which injured a crew member. Once is bad, but twice???? 'Rust' assistant director Dave Halls fired from past gig over another 'unexpected' gun discharge (nypost.com)
  12. Baldwin is double screwed. As the Producer he changed the standard definition of the Armorer job to include handling many props that were not firearms as well. This is extremely unusual, and most armorers would have (and I believe that at least one did) refused the job. She took the job because she was young, naive, and wanted to get some credentials for future jobs. Many of the crew had already walked off the job due to "unsafe working conditions," and that was because of decisions made by the producers. She was busy handling other props instead of the firearm at the time of the discharge. I don't know if she even knew that the gun would be used for rehearsal at that time, however nobody else should have had access to the gun if she wasn't there to unsecure it and then observe the handling of the firearm until it was safely secured again.
  13. Not some type, almost for sure "ANTI-GUN" related community service. I can see the TV promos now, "Woe is me, see how evil guns can hurt law-abiding gentlemen like me." The only reason this has not already been decided (even if not announced) is because it was in New Mexico and not California!
  14. Interesting, David Halls ("cold gun") who is almost as guilty as Baldwin, will only serve six months of probation and the armorer who wasn't present may have a mandatory minimum of five years in jail. I agree with the Special Prosecutor who said that if any of the three "had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.”
  15. My understanding is that unless they reformulate the powder it is (and will be) illegal for "Australian Munitions" to make it in Australia. It isn't just Trail Boss, but several Australian made powders. There was a strong rumor that they were going to license the formula out to another company to make it in the United States in late 2023/24 timeframe. Don't know if this is still progressing.
  16. But I do, send the funds to me and whatever you want I will send to you posthaste.
  17. Comes from factory with a short-throw kit!
  18. And this is after they DIGITIZED the process so that it could be approved much faster than the previous paper edition which was much harder for the government to sort and accidentally release to the media.
  19. Is there now a CAS group on Oahu? I thought the only one was on Maui.
  20. I sign up for all the free stuff that I can get physically mailed to me by the opposition. I feel that everything that costs them a buck, means they have one less buck to spend on something that I detest more!
  21. The long awaited ruling is about to become regulation, but not law. ================================================================== New rule on pistol attachments to boost gun safety, U.S. Justice Department says (msn.com) WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department announced on Friday a new rule targeting pistol attachments known as "stabilizing braces," implementing a key move in the Biden administration's efforts to beef up gun control regulations. A stabilizing brace is an attachment to a pistol that functionally turns it into a short-barreled rifle, similar to a sawed-off shotgun. Such weapons are considered particularly deadly as they offer the power of a traditional rifle, but are much easier to conceal. For decades, short-barreled rifles have been subject to strict regulations, including a law known as the National Rifle Act, which requires additional taxation and background checks for private transfers, among other provisions. The new rule clarifies that pistols modified by a stabilizing brace are subject to those additional requirements, department officials said. "This rule enhances public safety and prevents people from circumventing the laws Congress passed almost a century ago. In the days of Al Capone, Congress said back then that short-barreled rifles and sawed-off shotguns should be subjected to greater legal requirements than most other guns," said Steven Dettelbach, the director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Last year, President Joe Biden and U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland announced they were planning measures to tackle stabilizing braces as well as "ghost guns" - a type of firearm that is assembled by users and practically untraceable. While Democrats in Congress have pushed aggressively for new regulations of stabilizing braces, most Republicans have opposed such measures, portraying them as an infringement on Americans' constitutional gun rights. The new rule gives owners, manufacturers and distributors 120 days to report their stabilizing braces to the ATF tax-free. They may also remove the stabilizing brace or turn in any pistol modified by a stabilizing brace to the ATF. It goes into effect once it is published in the Federal Register, likely next week, department officials said. (Reporting by Gram Slattery and Susan Heavey in Washington; Editing by Matthew Lewis)
  22. I believe that it was made by VIERLING. They have A four barrelled (2 Rifle, 2 Shotgun) long gun on the cover of the web page below. VIERLING – A Four-Barrelled Rifle-Shotgun - Johann Fanzoj JOHANN FANZOJ´s unbelievable “Four-Barrelled Rifle-Shotgun” (VIERLING) - Johann Fanzoj An astonishing technical tour-de-force, from the conception, design & crafting of this MASTERPIECE over a 6 year span,” smiles creative director Daniela Fanzoj representing Johann Fanzoj gunmakers, still in disbelief of this monumental undertaking, “something that I will see happen only once in my lifetime in our workshop”. The basis for the design and construction of this extraordinary four-barrel firearm was that of a client’s specific request and fantasy of paring a side-by-side double rifle (Cal. 9,3/9,3X74R) with an Over-and-Under shotgun (Gauge 20/20/76mm) to be transformed into one single firearm. The customer required that the Vierling fire four times in succession, with “hot” barrels; The platform should be a robust, reliable mechanism that would guarantee inherent quick handling characteristics – then quickly reload and continue in the same sequence, which in other words demands that the sporting weapon have ejectors for all four barrels! “At this point it was definitely time to hold up the STOP sign – and run,” recalls Daniela Fanzoj, which the firm did not do, but rather “we took the bull by its horns, dug into this challenge and built this incredible weapon”. The result is a stunning and unsurpassed intricate mechanism, also being an object of culture and worth(value), which exhibits an amazing level of performance. Four barrels, H&H style sidelocks, 4 individual automatic ejectors, did little to lessen this impressive sporting arm’s responsiveness and wonderful balance. Massive, without a doubt, but not “heavy” at all with a weight of 3,8kg this sporting weapon handles magnificently. It was an enormous task to design and build, as well as join and regulate the barrels twp-times-two in order that they would shoot together at the same point of impact, in sequence – first the 9,3mm barrels then the shotgun barrels simply by pushing the barrel selector forward, the shooter continues his regiment with the 20-gauge barrels. Automatic ejectors for the shotgun barrels facilitate quick reloading for additional four shots. Which it does without hesitation; what a pleasure of a very specific, unique nature to fire in quick succession a quadruple series in sequence from this amazing, functional piece of High Art.”
  23. It is an image that I received in email and liked. I "thought" it was real, because I can't see someone adding a .22 CF to an imaginary gun.
  24. A .22 caliber center-fire, two 8x57mmRs and a 20 gauge...that would handle most things you are apt to run into in the hunting field...
