Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: United States Military Academies

I visited the Air Force Academy back in the early 90's, didn't get to tour the buildings but toured their static aircraft displays. The old B-52 BUFF brought back memories of my tech school time at Chanute AFB Il. in 66-67. And you're right about Colorado being one beautiful state. I've lived in the...

Re: Uss Truman

I've always been a Harry Truman fan, and I respect President Trump and I was glad to see the President do that, but I got to thinking about one underlying aspect of that action. Truman was a Democrat and with elections coming up next year could this be a way of gathering undecided votes? :think: [ M...

Re: China

I heard someone say that if we went to war with China, nuclear or not, it would put every Wal-Mart in the world out of business. He was joking but any kind of nuclear exchange would definitely be the end of life as we know it. The suicide rate among the surviving populations here in the states would...

Re: Supreme court got it right

There was a little Mom & Pop coffee shop I used to visit, in the wee hours during my shift, that sold made to order sandwiches & etc. I noticed many times that Pop would take the customer's money, hand them their change, then take their sandwich and wrap it. No hand washing involved. Gave me chills ...

Re: USS Hornet found

I'm sure the Japanese were well aware of the role the Hornet played in the Tokyo raids and had a rather large axe to grind when they attacked it.

Re: where did you spend 4th of July 1976?

I was in the State Trooper Academy in Montgomery, Alabama, Monday through Friday. Got to go home on weekends and saw a lot of the national celebrations on TV. That's about it.

Re: Cleaned up an 1884 Trapdoor Springfield

A beautiful job considering what you started with. I have a 73 TD, made in 1884, been in the family since 53. My Dad, bless his heart, made a wall hanger out of it in the mid 50's. Varnished the stock and painted the metal parts gold. After I inherited it in the late 80's the gold was all but flaked...

Re: Weekend road trip.

I remember when Liberty Bell 7 sank, watched it on live TV back in 61. They restored it before placing it in the Cosmosphere and that, to me, is a shame. It should have been left as is since it was, or is, a relic. I have a full length video showing the search, locating and recovery of it and it was...

Re: Weekend road trip.

Visiting the cosmosphere has been at the top of my wish list forever. Can you give me some info about the price of admission, if there are any quality motels and restaurants close by and about how long would it take to tour the whole facility if I started really early? It'll take me more than a week...

Re: IN PASSING & FWTW

I've watched videos of people making various items with those printers and while I accept it's possible to "print" a firearm I just can't get my head around how they would stand up to the pressures of being fired with live ammo. They're plastic, so how is this so possible that people are getting wor...

I wasn't aware of that one on the Krait. I'll have to try and find that one on DVD also. Thanks for the info.
