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.

AR wrench and lower vice block being PC

Tonight I was looking for something else to use for my evil black rifle and I stumbled across this ad on the internet by Walmart. PC taken to the max. Check out the suggested uses for the speciality tools. Still trying to figure out how they can possibly use the lower vice block in an automotive sit...

See a rifle you recognize?

Any one recognize the rifles in this print? Knabenschiessen literally means boy shooting. What it is, is a festival every year where part of the event is teens between the ages of 13-17 participate in an organized shooting competition. Women started participating in the event around 1991 so it is no...

Re: Persian VZ 24

Forget what model of Persian it is, but it was produced in country. What is interesting to note the differences in the crest. Those produced in country the lion on the crest has a strange resemblance to the cowardly lion of Wizard of Oz fame. Believe it was the 98/29 that was produced in country. Th...

Never will I speak ill of the forum members here

Today I was perusing some of the sub forums on facebook that I like to follow sometimes. I saw a post the other day on another forum that I thought was pertinent to the subject at hand. So I decided to share it over there. I had hardly hit the return key until the hyenas were out telling me how wron...

Browning has ceased producing Hi Power

Sorry to say Browning has ceased production of the Hi Power pistol, probably one of the best known and loved pistols of the 20th Century. I am just glad I own one and have been able to shoot it on a regular basis. Think I may turn it into a safe queen and take mine out only on special occasions. htt...

Re: Marlin Model 19 Shotgun

Some of the Marlins were marked black powder only. I would definitely heed what the gun was labeled for. PLus there was a Marlin service alert a while back on all Marlin exposed hammer shotguns, bottom line was don't shoot them.

Re: Marlin Model 19 Shotgun

Rob, I read the same warning on line. The gun was inspected by one gun smith and it was used by a SASS shooter before it was purchased. Its going to be a wall hanger here.

Marlin Model 19 Shotgun

Not really a military shotgun that I am aware of but still an interesting obscure model that was made at the turn of the last century. The model 19 was only made for 2 year, 1906-07. This one came from a former SAS shooter. As I understand it, the shotgun was made in two versions. One was strictly b...

Re: Cold enuff for you?

Thermometers are for chumps. It's January in Northern Michigan. Nothing new. Having said that, I must admit: wearing flip flops to go outside to start my jeep was not one of my smarter moves. You and another friend who lives in Baudette MN should get together and swap stories. LOL See who has the b...

Cold enuff for you?

This morning here in western Ohio it was -13 degrees Fahrenheit. Not the most coldest I have experienced, that honor would have to go back to 1978 when the Ohio River and Niagara Falls both froze over that winter. Back then it got down to -26 or so. Just curious what has been the coldest weather you...

Re: What have I done wrong?

Smokey is correct. You need to change your settings in the User Control Panel, subsection Managing Subscriptions. Any settings you had from previous SRF forum are gone and you need to customize this version to satisfy your particular needs.
