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.

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.

"so consider yourself a lucky fellow" - 72 USMC

Heh I guess I can. Read a story on line this morning, I think happened in Sacramento. Amazon delivery driver left the package on the front porch and a little something else in the front yard. Homeowner's video security system caught it.

Gripe about package delivery services

Back in September I bought a new pistol and part of the deal was that I would receive a couple of additional magazines, and some ammunition as part of the deal, For the price I paid for the pistol it was a sweetheart of a deal. Finally I guess they thought I waited long enough and shipped the mags a...

Re: What a Waste........oil stove,that is.

Rob, Youtube is full of designs for waste oil stoves. Look on youtube for videos on designs for them and another stove design called a rocket stove. Rocket stoves are the oil burners on steroids. One video shows the flame vortex created by the burning oil and the in rush of outside air. Just plain a...
