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: 1908 Bronze ashtray ID request

Your bronze ashtray is probably worth around $50 more or less. WI and MN were big into fraternal benefit societies back then such as the loyal order of foresters and Modern Woodmen of America, etc. Check around and see which ones had a organization start in 1876 and you could have an souvenir from a...

Re: Whoda thunk I'd neeed this, (French dingus) but I do!

Is that similar to Bocce? I have played that before. Up there with curling on my excitement meter.

LOL

Kidding aside it is definitely a game of skill

Re: Why surplusrifleforum does not show on searches

This isn't good. I googled Surplus Rifle Forum. Got one hit on the forum and a couple of negative links back a couple of years when the squabble was going on about the Enfields. Then not another hit. Goes on to other forums.

Re: The late great Stephen A. Camp

He also had a fondness for the Star BM, if I recall he had one customized as a carry gun. I also followed his website and corresponded with him occasionally. Wish we had more enthusiasts like him in the ranks.

Re: Charles Lipscomb ???

I just checked the system logs and Charles was last on the forum Sept 28. So he is at least connecting to the forum. Suggest try leaving him a PM if you would like to connect with him.

Today's Cincinnati Shooting

I use to work across the street from the 5/3 Bank Building on Fountain Square in Cincinnati where today's shooting took place. Took lunch lots of times in places that were in the lobby of the 5/3 tower. So I know the area pretty well. This is the first time a mass shooting hit so close to home. I do...

Re: Signs you are growing old.

fluid was a mix of methanol and isopropyl alcohol. Guess we all missed the elementary school buzz. LOL We always got the handouts as class assignments or take homes for the parents. Those were generally notes about upcoming events or as reminders to vote yes for the upcoming school bond issues.

Re: Signs you are growing old.

Explain to your millennial aged kids why movies involving cheerleaders and stewardesses were banned in most communities when you were their age. And why no one smoked close to their dates for fear their heads would go up in flames.

Re: Nice Parker Hale PH5A aperture sight, SMLEs

To my way of thinking it should go into the quarantine file and a PM sent to the poster telling we don't support links to outside sales and auctions. That is if it links to an outside sale.

Re: New to the forum

Being as nice as possible, the former administrator simply walked away from the forum and did not tell anyone he wanted out. It was thru the efforts of a few concerned forum members we were able to resurrect the forum and get it going again. Still not where we would like it to be but we are making h...

Re: Recover old board posts?

It is great that these are available out there still on the internet. Just remember to be careful to follow current copyright laws as the copyright of many these articles have changed hands several times and the ownership is somewhat vague. When in doubt it is always best to create a link advising w...

Are you volunteering to correct those bugs as you see them to be? If so contact ElricFate, he would be glad to hear from you. Takes a lot of effort to maintain a forum and if you feel you have the ability, pass along your resume. We will be interested in learning about your technical skills.

I am northwest of the Museum by 45 min and I can report that I spotted at least two P 51s making a flight in a SE direction toward the base this evening.

Dicks Sporting Goods Hires Anti Gun Lobbyists

Is there a race among outdoor sporting goods companies to see who can go out of business first?

As a retailer of hunting and shooting products sound counterintuitive doesn't it.
