  1. Jethro Tull and Uriah Heep! The Tubes were a wild stage show. Can't say my first as it is my security question.
  2. I had an issue with my Springfield TRP Operator 1911. The slide wouldn't go fully into battery and then would jam and I couldn't get the slide back. Had to tap it with a mallet to tear it down. With my limited knowledge I found the ejector was loose and jamming on the slide. Took it in to a 'smith and just got it back. It turns out the ejector has 2 pins that locate in the frame and then glued in! WTF? How could any one think an adhesive is good for a small part that is exposed to shock and heat of a 10mm? A part that is exposed to cleaning solvents and oils. I've used some pretty cool adhesives in my time but never in an application like this. I doubt I would have bought it if I had known. If it loosens up again, I don't know what to do. Silver solder?

    Surgery

    Dude, I really empathize with you especially if you are a hands-on kinda guy. The worst part for me in the end was I can't work on my own vehicle anymore since a shoulder replacement from arthritis. Quite humbling for a lifetime mechanic. Take care of that shoulder after surgery. Accept all the help you can get.
  4. Not bad for the price of a Red Lobster dinner.
  5. A friend of mine just gave me a bunch of reload supplies that his dad used. I can't find any dates. Do you think this stuff is still good? The Remington primers have wood slat separators in the boxes. How old is that?
  6. Couldn't be Longhair, no antelope involved.
  7. Dad said we'd grow one big square eye in our foreheads. I loved the vacuum tube tester at the hardware store!
  8. Excellent! Now go shoot it.
  9. In todays atmosphere I wouldn't sell one! Clean 'em, inspect 'em, lube 'em, and store 'em.
  10. Success! Woo Hoo! I'm gonna go get my resident fishing license now!
  11. An update! I have received 2 replies which simply restated ID requirements. I had resigned myself to having to get a non-resident fishing license this year. Then, lo and behold, I get a call after 6pm. It seems that because I had a license previously in CO then they already knew me. I have a special "expedited appointment" for next week. Wonder which official I bugged and lit a fire. Like to thank them! Keeping my fingers crossed.
  12. This is why Russia and China will start a war with us. California promotes 'dismantling racism in math' guidance in draft for statewide framework | Fox News
  13. Just wait for the F-35 bill to come due!
  14. I'm having fun with my elected officials now. I asked my congressmen, representatives and Governor, "why"? There are so many laws, rules, executive actions...and not one bit of it means a thing when the masses lack basic integrity.
  15. I thought the star on your driver's license means it meets the real id act. Gets me on a plane without another form of ID. My TX DL has one on the right side. No it's not the Line Star.
