  1. My better half was asking me what I wanted for Christmas. I feel pretty blessed and can't think of anything I particularly need. However, I have thought of getting a nice pair of grips for original Vaqueros (stainless). I was wondering what's everyone's favorite place for new grips? If they support SASS, all the better. Thanks and I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.
  2. Finagler is correct. Plus, how you put them out during a car fire is different, or rather, there is risk of the fire starting up again. More information and training that hopefully gets shared with fire departments.
  3. Same as above, really no noise, no vibration.
  4. Found this from a friend https://www.redstate.com/stu-in-sd/2019/11/11/sure-see-remake-movie-“midway”/
  5. People are dissing the movie because a newspaper review got someone's rank wrong? I saw it, I enjoyed it. I give it a 6 out of 10. Possible minor spoilers below: It moved through events pretty quickly, from a little before Pearl Harbor, to Pearl Harbor, to the Doolittle raid to the intel on Midway to the actual battle. As someone said, there is not a romantic sub plot to muck things up. Some articles I saw said a lot of the historical aspects are correct, including the contributions of the 10 main characters. Though the actual battles are probably a little too dramatized. I think it could have done a better job of comparing the Japanese losses at Midway to the American losses.
  6. Well, let's see if I have this right. The gunfight at the OK Corral had the participants 6-10 feet apart. 30 Rounds were fired. 8 hits (26%) Morgan Earp in the shoulder blades. Virgil Earp in the Calf Frank McLaury - two shots, one in the head Tom McLaury - Shotgun Billy Clanton - 3 shots - wrist, chest, abdomen. Perhaps they should have used two hands.
  7. https://www.whsv.com/content/news/Lobby-to-end-gun-violence-outspends-NRA-by-over-half-million-564049341.html Anti-gun lobby, led by Soros, outspends NRA in Virginia. The Virginia elections today could be interesting to follow. There are many that believe it will set the stage for 2020.
  8. I have a 6" blued, built in the early 1970's. Very smooth, feels very good in the hand. Both DA and SA are sweet. If your is nib, I can only imagine the asking price.
  9. What everyone else said. Plus: Blu-Ray is HD 1920x1080 pixels and considered HD (High definition) Regular DVD is 720x480 Which is one reason a Blu-Ray player will play a regular DVD, but not vice versa. For reference, your old VHS tape was about 333x480 resolution Today there is Ultra HD (UHD) - for 4K monitors. These monitors and disks output at 3840x2160 pixels, and provide a very nice home movie environment.
  10. Thanks for the well wishes. His plans are often fluid, and he wants to make his own way in the world, and I respect that. He has not spent any of the money we saved for him for college yet. He's finishing up his associates degree while serving, and wants to get the "college experience" after he leaves to finish up his bachelors degree with the help of the GI bill. From there, his clearance should still be good, and as a contractor, he could make considerably more than what he makes now.
  11. Wish I saw this on the day of. My son is active duty in the Air Force, we were able to visit him for family day last weekend to almost see what he does. 1.5 years left on his current contract.
  12. That's as good as the Chattanooga police officer that went home to get rest after his shift ended. Someone spotted a person in tactical clothing carrying an "assault weapon" into the house and called the police, citing a suspicious person. The officer was called back in to search for the potential active shooter, only to discover he was looking for himself. https://www.timesfreepress.com/news/breakingnews/story/2019/aug/28/utc-authorities-searching-man-reportedly-seen-carrying-rifle-toward-campus/502265/
  13. Browning BDM. I convinced myself I needed a 9mm that was DA/SA and had a hammer drop. Got rid of a really nice HiPower to get it. The grip and fit in the hand is really nice. For a 15 round 9mm, it's considerably slimmer than the Sig's and Beretta's of the day. However, trigger is clunky, too many internal levers. Browning brought this gun to market in 9mm just as the love affair with .40 S&W started. Bad timing on their part. I still have it and shoot it once in a while. Trigger could still be improved.
