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: JFK

I once heard it summed up like this, "We have the conspiracy theories because people cannot believe that someone as consequential as John F. Kennedy could be killed by someone as inconsequential as Lee Harvey Oswald." There was a documentary on The Discovery Channel a couple of years ago where they ...

Re: Lights / flashlights, headlights & lanterns

We used to have a Bushnell outlet store just a mile from my house so temptation was near. To make matters worse, members of my gun club got the employee discounts. At one point they carried Cree bulb flashlights. I bought several, one of which is a small, single AA battery, tactical flashlight. Been...

Re: S&W M&P .22LR Compact pistol review

My wife recently bought an S&W .380 EZ. Also an internal hammer fired gun. Also has a thumb safety and a backstrap safety, so basically you carry it cocked-and-locked similar to a 1911. She wanted a lightweight gun that is easy to rack, not too heavy, and has minimal recoil. It's also easy to load t...

Re: Anyone tried Aguila ammo?

I haven't tried any of their centerfire ammo that I can recall, but the rimfire ammo is great.

Lost my dad nine years ago. Second row from the top - fourth from the left. https://beta-static.photobucket.com/images/v739/HectorFuego/marinegrads.jpg Here's a copy of a v-mail he sent home sometime between Feb. 25 and March 2, 1945. https://beta-static.photobucket.com/images/v739/HectorFuego/Lette...

Re: Finally joined the .45 ACP club.

Hector's thread here convinced me to finally pick up an M&P 45. It's a police trade-in from the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office. Had fun taking it completely down the other night and it cleaned up real nice. I'll add some pics and hopefully a range report soon. That's great. Did you get the 4" or 4...

Gramps' shotgun.

My grandfather was born in 1893. His name was Howard, but to me he was always Gramps. He was nearly 54 when I came along – the only son of his only son – his only direct line down. Family legend has it that he was an excellent hunter, and beginning at the age of ten, roamed the fields around Vine Cr...

Re: Dick's Sporting to remove guns.

While pandering to the gun control crowd they failed to recognize that the folks who buy guns also buy ammo, hunting gear, gun safes, tree stands, bows and arrows, boots, fishing gear, camping gear, etc. So basically the stuff that fills one third of their floor space. Now, after taking a dump in th...

Re: Finally joined the .45 ACP club.

First twenty two rounds fired offhand at 10 yards. I'd say the M&P .45 is a keeper. :D

Looked like someone shot off one of his antlers. I think I might have left that one alone. Probably all white meat anyway. :lol:

Re: Finally joined the .45 ACP club.

Great price if you ask me, and likely to be a great shooter. I really enjoy shooting .45's. The only real issue with them (as far as I'm concerned) is that .45 hollow point ammo just doesn't expand a lot in any gun with a barrel length less than 5 inches. I did a lot of hollow point ammo testing se...

Finally joined the .45 ACP club.

There's an on-line gun seller who is actually local for me. Among other things, he buys and re-sells former LEO guns when the police, sheriff, etc departments upgrade their old firearms. He recently listed some S&W M&P 45's on his site under "Used Handguns". The compact guns were $299 and the full s...
