  1. There needs to be an incredibly stiff penalty for bogus accusations, if the whole mess doesn't get scrapped before it's implimented (as it should).

    Talk to me about home security systems.

    Just so you know, SimpliSafe claims to have improved their glass break sensor software to where it only activates when window glass is broken. If your wife (or you) drops a drinking glass or glass dish that happens to break, the system can differentiate between that and a broken window and it will not go off.

    https://simplisafe.com/ You configure it, and you install it. No wires. Lots of options, and inexpensive monthly fees.

    Something is wrong with this picture

    Yep! Looks like somebody is trying to pull a fast one. This is what it should look like in the package.

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    It's been that way for generations........"And all for the want of a horseshoe nail." For want of a nail the shoe was lost. For want of a shoe the horse was lost. For want of a horse the rider was lost. For want of a rider the message was lost. For want of a message the battle was lost. For want of a battle the kingdom was lost. And all for the want of a horseshoe nail. https://allnurseryrhymes.com/for-want-of-a-nail/

    AR Pistol Barrel Shroud

    I've got a 10½" barrel with a 9" handguard and a can. I don't think that I'd want a rail longer than 9½" with a 10½" barrel.

    Eddie Money Dead at 70

    R.I.P. ▲▲▲My wish, out of respect for the dead and those that cared about him. To be honest, I never thought that much of his music. To me it's too repetitive (monotonous). I did see him in concert once back in '78. He was on the bill with Peter Tosh, Kansas, and The Rolling Stones. Lost me when the last thing he said before leaving the stage was, "We're staying at the Holiday Inn, girls!" IMO, sleazy 39 year old men shouldn't be chasing girls half their age......but maybe that's just me.
  9. Bummer! That really sucks! I've been warned about what to do or not do as far as cleaning mine, and I hope that I never have a similar issue.

    Will Corporate Money Diminish the 2A?

    I'm happy to say that nobody I do business with in any way is on that list. Shame on all of them just the same!

    did something stupid this weekend

    I know that I don't need to tell you. but...busted ribs and bronchitis are a bad mix. When I was young I had chronic bronchitis for a few years. As a result I developed abdominal muscles strong enough that I separated a rib coughing. I don't even want to try to imagine what that would be like now. In my line of work busted ribs are just part of the deal. What's just as bad is tearing the fibro-cartilage that connect your ribs across the bottom. That commonly happens when you break ribs. When you damage that, as it heals it ossifies, and then when you damage yourself similarly later you just fracture that ossified part and it feels just like you broke that rib again. One of the only horses that I eventually refused to work on was a mare who habitually used to hook my ribs with a hock. Since I went there every six weeks it seemed like I was just healing up from my last visit and that b¡tch would hook me again. I think that she got me about four or five times before I finally refused to do her anymore. Jury's still out on whether I'm just that stubborn or a slow learner.

    COLT SALES

    The only way I could see that, is if the firearms portion of Colt Industries ™ were purchased away from the parent corporation, which would unfortunately likely be at the loss of the name and iconic logo, without which it would just be like any other new company joining in on the firearms industry that's already in trouble. Probably not going to happen. Colt has been on borrowed time ever since it became a part of a larger corporation, which was/is in part owned by the Kennedy's. By doing so, it was destined to become unionized, because at least two of the other companies involved were Crucible Steel and Holly Carburetors, the latter of which is why they became affiliated with the UAW.

    My Delema...

    Thanks Newbie. I'm pretty much out of time. Between work and the weather I may only get part of another day to do anything besides loading up what I'm going to take, so further development isn't going to happen. I've got another 200 .264 pills showing up on the brown truck today, and they are earmarked for the trip. I never did work up anything for the .308, so FGMM ammo is going to have to do for that rifle. At some future period I may play with H4350 or RE17 to see what I can come up with for loads, but for now IMR4350 is going to have to do. I called a couple of places earlier in the week looking for H4350, but they didn't have any on hand. There is one more place that might have it, but right at the moment is doesn't matter. I screwed myself on time by not getting my Forster dies and getting on this whole part of it sooner. I have no grandiose expectations, and will be satisfied with whatever I can accomplish. For me the trip is more about the learning experience, and meeting a bunch of Armory brothers FTF. It's a bucket list thing for me, because I don't know if I'll have another chance to do this sort of thing again before I die. Heck, this is the first vacation I've had in ten years!

    COLT SALES

    It was destined to happen sooner of later. They are the ONLY union firearms manufacturer, and the UAW has never been exactly supportive of the firearms industry.
