  1. When I was 10, I really wanted a Remington 552 for Christmas. Relatives even said I deserved it. Parents were "oh we're not sure he should have a gun". Yeah, that should have been my clue. I got a sweater. Not even a good one. Some gaudy synthetic Monkey Wards shit that immediately got used to stuff the cat bed. Just a tip, "don't go holding your breath in anticipation, for shit that likely will not happen".
  2. Dont be angry, but I used to have some neat M240 bits. Rail "forend", some odd topcover NODS mount (I think for a PVS-4, it was huge) a couple tank/armor barrels, a couple of T&E's. Tried selling them at a couple SAR shows, but was offered cents on the dollar. So I gave them to a good friend who had one of the semi-auto ones, for helping me move to Kentucky.
  3. Warthunder introduced Phantoms. The circle is complete. Unlock the sixth gate, and release the demons.
  4. The system used by the Mg42 and G3 has a lot of issues regarding "less than optimal" ammo. In that "it does not. It shits the bed". Even the Pig will choke, hiccup and fart, and a bit of twiddelery-fuckery will persuade it to work. Not so with the Mg3. If it farts, shit has gone pear shaped, and you now have a club.
  5. I can see why they did not go with it. Looks like a fucking baby eating monster. Sad, the interior looks nice.
  6. Oh that COE. What great lines.
  7. "AC Delco" is a "Zombie Brand", and has been for a while.
  8. A warning "Delco" is not what it used to be. And "Self fusing tape" is the berries, if a bit expensive.
  9. "Imagine thousands of simultaneous boating accidents, involving the loss of entire collections, all within the span of a week or so.". All humor aside, the logistics of such weigh against it. Whole states would rebel. (which I suspect is what some want).
  10. At best we'll see drawn butter for his crab legs at the goon-gressional hearings.
  11. At this point, it's "business as usual". I had zero faith in the FBI/DOJ, and have had zero faith in them for a very long time. Unless they decide to start hanging sonsofbitches from treelimbs, I forsee no change in my attitude nor opinion.
  12. Huh, did not know that. Neat! Much as I like the OH-6, the '58 actually went somewhere.
  13. Other than the Ranger /OH58 did not exist then? I'm not sure if any Bell lights saw service in SE
  14. People do not realize how absurdly forgiving and tolerant the Bell "Rangers" are. You have to work to make one crash.
  15. "Hundreds of Rounds" might describe how much 6.5 Arisaka or 7.35 French Long I have. I suspect my meagre stash of 8mm Ordinance for the M1892 would be "an arsenal" to some swine.
  16. Or the Philly shooter who had multiple felonies, including ones related to firearms, but was still on the street and had zero issues "acquiring" what he wanted to kill cops with. Gun laws (by design) only keep weapons out of the hands of the honest .
  17. Good luck getting that passed. Involving "voting" that is. "Mandatory National Background Checks" in order to exercise one right, but you dare not do the same for another. Welcome to crazyland.
  18. I'd be willing to bet you'd feel right at home in a badly run VA facility.
  19. There used to be everything from "poll taxes" to "Poll testing". Amusingly enough, the majority were conceived and utilized in mostly Democratic areas.
  20. Taxing "rights" and the unfettered exercise of them is a good way to start a civil war in this country. I'm still amazed how long this nation has put up with the '34 GCA . A side note, many places used to tax voting, for the same reason many politicians want to restrict firearms.
  21. Does it matter? No matter what clown they run, they'll be propped up as the "Second Coming" regardless of the skeltons in their closet. And the band will play on.
  22. So , "Nobody knows for sure but our magical polls say consumers like coke over pepsi". Right?
  23. So polling, the same process that got us "President Clinton" is still being trusted, and money spent on it? I guess they figure that enough people may still buy the lies, that it's worth a shot.
